We never met Luis, but Christina and Oscar are both really nice, helpful, and responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had about the rental. Our toddler absolutely loved Christina, and she was very helpful with helping us move our luggage at check-in. The apartment is furnished with the basic necessities (pots, pans, utensils, towels, etc...), and had good hot water pressure in the shower. The location is in a THICK, family friendly, residential neighborhood, with all the sounds and character one would expect. Easy walking to everywhere downtown. The closest parking is about a block away, down a very steep hill. The view from the living room and terrace is awesome! The wifi was mostly spotty and unreliable, but improved for about a day after we mentioned it to Christina. We didn't bring up the issue again. Overall, a good value for someone looking for a true Mexico experience!
Luis was very prompt to respond to messages and helpful in changing our reservation slightly. Cristina met us by the street (about 45 min after we were said we were going to show up, I forgot how long the airport takes, and it was Christmas day. Super props to Cristina) and showed us to the unit. We met Oscar on the roof and chatted with him for a while, he was very nice and gave us some good suggestions on where to eat and what to do. The unit was simple and clean, just as we expected. Although we didn't spend much time inside during the day, leaving the windows open and fan on kept it from getting too stuffy. The view was great (especially from the roof), the beds were decently comfortable, and it was a great value!
I have stayed in quite a few places in Vallarta and this is my favorite. The people and neighborhood are wonderful. The landlord and groundskeepers are very friendly. I spent almost every eve watching the sunset on the roof top terrace. It would be difficult to find a place at this price in this area of town with a better view. If you have trouble walking then you should find another listing because you will be climbing a nice hill to get to the location. If you need haircut while you are staying here you can ask America, she lives in apt 442. There are little stores a quick walk from the location, If you wanted to come and stay in the neighborhood and never leave it would be very easy but I recommend exploring Vallarta. There is a groundskeeper named Oscar who lives at the location. He is very friendly and speaks English very well. If i ever needed anything he was available to help. Christina is the landlord was great and was always available to help through her cell phone. After a month it was very hard to leave spot. I will be back.
El apartamento estaba de acuerdo a mis expectativas, su ubicación es excelente y buena para hacer ejercicio regresando del malecón, el cual llegas a pie en 5 minutos. Tiene todo lo necesario para sentirte cómodo y una buena vista, es ideal para las personas que buscan fiesta en Puerto Vallarta o como base de operaciones para visitar los alrededores ya que pasan todos los camiones que te conectan por el centro. La terraza del edificio también es ideal para hacer reuniones con amigos, pero no nos dio tiempo de usarla todo estuvo de acuerdo a lo que esperaba, incluso mejor.
Luis seemed like a good host to start, but he is just a broker for this apartment. There were some problems in that the kitchen was very poorly equipped, not even a coffee maker. I discussed the issues with Luis, he was upset about it, but his basic concern was that he "doesn't make enough money on this listing" to have to deal with problems. He was going to "cancel" our stay which I assume would put us out on the street during an extremely busy time in Puerto Vallarta and all his other listings were full.
Antwort von Luis:
We appreciate your comments, definitely the dates booked were during the most demanded time in Puerto Vallarta when it is almost impossible to find a sizable 1 bedroom ocean view apartment with large ocean view terrace located 5 blocks from the ocean in the heart of town for 55 usd/night as booked. We had several prior guests and they had no major problems, however the first day they gave us a big list of additional things never mentioned on the apartment description and never requested by prior guests including their personal supplies/grocery list which we bought and provided. At the end nothing was enough even if Cristina and César the owner's daughter and son and myself who help them rent the apartment for a small commission provided them. We also offer them to cancel with full refund however they didn't take the refund offer probably because they saw that any other sizable 1 bedroom ocean view apartment with large ocean view terrace from any other owner will cost them at least an additional 50% more. We appreciate your comments, thanks for everything. Regards.
