New 3 bedroom home with tropical accents, located at the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, close to the famous beach “Playa de los Muertos”. This exquisite home has serious comfort: Town and bay views, large sundeck, pool, gourmet Italian kitchen, A/C throughout, indoor garage. Beautifully furnished , this house has left little unfinished. Located in the Old Town zone, it is within walking distance to hundreds of restaurants and shops. On a quiet street, you can sit and relax while looking out over the city and the ocean bay about 10 blocks away. Transportation is available a short walk 3 blocks away on the famous Calle Basilio Badillo and typically available around the clock. Note the house is up the hill a bit which does provide a beautiful view but also means that the street is steep for the first block if walking. If you know Puerto Vallarta at all, this is pretty common as the hills are one of the attractions. For those that drive, you have your own fully secure garage for parking but taxis are cheap and will bring you right to your door. Puerto Vallarta is simply a vibrant and safe place with things to do for all ages. We love it and think you will to.
Over-sized terrace: Includes tables and chairs for more living space and private pool with newly installed solar heating. We found most places do not have heated pools which can make for rather chilly water. Our home has been built to become one with the outdoors. When the glass walls are retracted living/dining area merges seamlessly with the courtyard giving you that outside feel even when indoor.
Kitchen with breakfast bar: Full equipped with gas range, oven, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, purified water, dishwasher, wine fridge and full size fridge with ice-maker. Includes all of the utensils and tools you would expect at home.
Dining room: Equipped with a glass top table and offers comfortable seating for 6.
Living room: Total comfort on 2 large leather couches, 42' flat screen TV, English channels, phone for local calls. Wireless internet.
Master suite: Over-sized master bedroom, flat screen TV, floor to ceiling windows with bay and town views, private terrace with seating for 2 . Separate shower and master bath, walk-in closet, safe, iPod/Phone docking station. Pour a glass of wine, turn on the jets and take in the city/ocean views from the double Jacuzzi tub.
Guest suites 1 and 2: One with a king, the other with 2 individual beds that can be pushed together, full bathroom with luxury glass tiles showers and iPhone/Pod docking stations. Large glass patio doors ensure the entire room can be opened to their own ocean breezes.
To ensure you can find the latest attractions in PV we include a computer as well as a laser printer/scanner for your use. The entire house has wireless access recently upgraded to ensure superior coverage everywhere. Work or play, we have a dedicated internet service to ensure quality service with speed typically between 5-10mbps. This was an important feature personally for us as we use this to work abroad. We have plenty of bandwidth at low latency dedicated for your use only. Internet video and phone service or remote access is very good should you need it.
Secure attached garage with remote control. Secure front keyless entry to house and yard. No keys needed, no keys to loose. Provide us with a code before you leave and have immediate access without upon your arrive to PV. No check in hassles. Pet friendly and secure front yard. I know our two dogs love it.

WHY THIS PROPERTY:
We purchased this house in 2014 after looking for about 2 months. Our criteria was very strict and we had many boxes to check off. Old Town area was a must as we loved the vibe and nearness to most attractions. Daily strolls are very important to us and our two dogs. As well, we wanted a place that was quiet and gave us security but was designed to give an open air living feel. We wanted that indoor/outdoor feel 24 hours a day and this was the place. After all, you come for the beautiful weather and this place makes your feel like you are outside even when inside. As often my vacations are working vacations, this place has plenty of room to discreetly set up an office and very good internet. My wife has small dogs and we wish to travel with them more. With the secure front court yard, we are able to walk them at night with no issues or simply leave the door open and they can access it on their own. The previous owners and builders were meticulous in the construction and this home is hard to describe in words. We just fell in love with the open layout. It feels like you are in a 5 star hotel....Read more

Additional Location Information
Puerto Vallarta and in particular, the Romantic Zone is simply a vibrant place year around. We traveled many locations in the Americas and fell in love with this part of the world. The city is large enough that it has all the amenities you could want but small enough that it is very personable. We always feel safe in any location whether we are walking or driving and quaint restaurants and shops are everywhere. For those that love the ocean, beaches of every size and style litter the coast. A beautiful bay and marina mean fishing and charters are available year round. We think you will love it as there is something for people of all ages. Nearness to the Romantic zone was important but we are far enough away to avoid the noise. This place is a quiet oasis. Local markets spring up all the time and Mexican markets are close by. Impromptu parades and events happen year around. If you are not familiar with Puerto Vallarta, it also hosts very modern amenities like Wall Mart, Sams Club, and Costco to name a few. They are not in Old Town but a short 10-15 minute ride away. A short walk away you can take a local bus for 75 cents to almost any location. Taxis will pick you up right at the house if you call or easier yet, walk a couple of blocks and typically one will show up within a minute. Please note this house is about 3 blocks off the main road of Calle Basilio Badillo where most of the taxis operate 24 hours a day.

Communication from Phil and Sally was fantastic before, during and after our trip. Absolutely beautiful home up the hill from Basilio Badillo in charming, quiet neighborhood. Easy walk into town, cheap cab ride home if you don't want to walk the hill. Everything in house was as advertised. Property manager met us there as promised. We had plenty of room for the four of us. Did not use the kitchen, but appeared to have everything needed. Several little stores nearby to grab snacks, water, beer. Patio area is nice, but in winter months does not get full sun, so pool is a bit chilly. I would definitely stay here again.
We are very happy you enjoyed the property. Would like to inform you that we have recently installed a heating system for the pool. In past trips to PV we have noticed most places do not heat and pools can be rather chilly particularly in the winter months. Keeping green, we utilized over-sized solar panels mounted out of sight on the roof with controls for the guest to set their own temperature. As of March 2015, we can attain temps as high as 84'f (29'C). Thanks for the positive review. Hope to see you again. Regards, Phil and Sally.
