About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 pi Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our Puerto Vallarta home on the beach is a wonderful condo in the perfect tropical location. Watch the sunset from your balcony while enjoying the view of the peaceful blue waters of Banderas Bay. Our condo in the Sea River Tower at the former Holiday Inn (now Sunscape Resort) Puerto Vallarta is beachfront in the heart of the hotel district. It is approximately a ten minute drive from downtown and 10 minutes from the airport. You will find all the amenities to make your stay an enjoyable experience. Our Puerto Vallarta beachfront condo is approximately 730 sq. feet and is decorated with a Mexican flair. It has a new air conditioner , 1 bedroom with a king-size bed, 1 bath with sink area separated from the shower area (marble shower with bench), living room, dining room, kitchen and a balcony with ocean, mountain, and city views. The partial kitchen includes a 2 burner stove, sink, full size fridge, microwave, and everything you need to prepare for breakfast on the balcony or a romantic sunset dinner.

Dishes and pots and pans including a coffee pot, toaster, juicer, blender, toaster oven, and George Foreman grill, and electric grill on the balcony are provided as well as bed linens and towels.

One of the couches in the living room is custom designed to make into a comfortable queen sleeper (no metal rods).

From our large 15th floor balcony the view of the ocean and mountains is fantastic! You can see downtown Puerto Vallarta, the south shore mountains and the wide expanse of the bay. We often see dolphins playing off shore. Our balcony is a great place to watch the fireworks from the pirate ship, whales in season, as well as the glorious nightly sunsets. In the winter when you can leave the balcony doors open you can hear the waves crashing at night and watch whales in the daytime.

We have outdoor blinds on the balcony for when the sun shines directly in. We also have a ceiling fan on the balcony for those warm days and evenings. Few of the condos in our building have these 2 items. We also have an electric grill on our balcony that you may use.

The maid cleans 1 time per week.

The bus to town stops In front of La Isla mall right next door to our building and is a short ride to downtown. Or you can catch a taxi.

You will love staying in our Puerto Vallarta beachfront condo with its fabulous view.

About Pat DuPont

We first visited Puerto Vallarta in 1992 and fell in love with it. We re-visited numerous times, taking our boys with us at times. It was our dream to buy an ocean front home to spend 6 months per year there after we retired. In 2002 we were finally able to buy our condo. We completely remodeled it. We have the most wonderful view. Now we spend as much time as possible there including part of our winters there. We hope that you find our condo and Puerto Vallarta as wonderful as we do. It is truely awesome!

Pat DuPont purchased this condo in 2002

Why Pat DuPont chose Hotel Zone

We bought our condo to use as our retirement, winter vacation home. We decided to use it as a vacation rental to help pay for itself in the meantime. We have been able to provide many people with a wonderful vacation experience over the last 13 years.

What makes this condo unique

The views of the Banderas Bay, the Pacific Ocean, the city of Puerto Vallarta, and the south shore mountains are definitely one of the best benefits of our condo. We are beach front with a huge pool that is right beside the beach. I love being at the pool, watching the ocean and beach activities while sitting under the palm trees and feeling the ocean breezes. Our condo is air-conditioned and very comfortable with the comfy king-size bed, and nice couches in the living room. We have a nice large bathroom with a marble shower with bench seat. With hi speed wifi internet connection, you can check your e-mail while enjoying our wonderful view in the comfort of your own condo. Our location is great. We are a short trip to downtown Puerto Vallarta as well as the famous south side or romantic zone. We are also close the marina for boat tours as well as the wonderful restaurant area and board walk in the marina. We are within walking distance of a mall with a large grocery store where you can buy all the items you might need. Last, but not least is our wonderful beach with many activities available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you and let you know how much we enjoyed your condo and Puerto Vallarta. Not only did we love your condo with its charming decor and fantastic view, but we also appreciated the great management service.

We want to stay in PV next January also but cannot make a final decision until a bit later in the year.

Kind regards,

Jo Ann and Bruce

Pat's suite was very clean and the time we spent there was very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular view of the ocean from the suite. There was a nice breeze coming in from the ocean which cooled the rooms, and even though it was comfortable, we were able to take advantage of the air conditioning at night. The suite is located on the 15th floor, but there was never a delay with the elevators. We didn't take advantage of the kitchen, as we decided to go with the all inclusive option. The staff at Sunscape were very friendly and fun. All in all we had a fantastic vacation and would like to return some day in the future.

1 Month Sep/Oct Stay - Review of 15th Floor Sunscape Condo

  • 3 of 5

Besides being clean, modern, and roach free, this studio is well laid out, sized, and furnished with a good seating area, dining table, firm bed, large bath, separate rain shower, and storage space. The host outfits the place well with towels, bedding, kitchenware, toiletries, hair dryer, ironing and cleaning supplies, and other items. Add in free utilities, filtered water, a printer, good wifi, and TV with FOX news, CNN, Discovery, and 4 english movie channels. A full glass wall with 4 sliding doors keeps the place bright and airy - helped by ceiling fans. Mostly though, the SW view of the mountains, city, beach, ocean, and gorgeous pool complex below is truely extraordinary.

All was not good though. Besides the old building with its unreliable elevators and VRBO's payment system not working, I had no access upon check-in, the power and hot water shut off several times, a broken shower, a crumbling plaster wall, and an insecure door that allowed people to enter my occupied unit 4 times. There's also wall repairs and painting needing done, but mostly, there's mold and noise problems. A serious leak caused extensive mold to grow on the walls, ceiling, and floor of the bathroom. The bedroom and bed sheets also smelled bad and musky, creating an overall unhealthful environment. Extreme noise contributed to make this unit unsuitable for a guest. With mall construction on one side and condo units above, beside, and below being completely regutted, there was loud jack hammer, steel cutting, pounding noises to be endured from within the condo all day, every day, except Sundays. And in the evenings, several nights a week, the resorts beside and below replaced the construction noise with loud music or shows, sometimes past 11 p.m. Even with the doors closed, it was often loud enough to compete with the TV, and I found myself using headphones just to cope.

How do you rate a 1 star living environment, in a 3 star condo, having a 5 star view and helpful, friendly, honest host? A 3 for now seems fair, but the unit will likely warrant a 4 in the future with the mold removal, wall repairs, and painting being done. The construction noise will come and go - with the mall being finished soon, but more Sunscape building construction due in 2017. The resort noise will continue though. You can have peace and quiet, or you can have the lively, noisy resort environment and awesome view, but you'll not have both with this unit. One must choose their prioroties.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joseph for staying with us and for the nice things you have said. I am sorry for all of the construction going on in the building. We did not know until late August that the owners of the resort would be remodeling the 30 condos in our building that they own. Then they did not follow their own rules for construction hours. Apparantly the jack hammering above is what caused the wall to crack and also caused the water pipe to leak. It has already been repaired and painted. Vallarta is very humid this time of year and you HAVE to run the air conditioner to keep the moldy smells at bay wherever you are staying in Vallarta during the months of August, SSeptemberand October. You chose not to run the air conditioner. I have been there many times during the rainy season and did not have a problem with odors because the air conditioning was running. Soon the consruction will not be an issue. Sunscape is a beautiful resort. We would be glad to have you stay again Joseph once this construction is over.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in February 2014. The condo was exactly as represented and was perfect for my husband and I. Pat was wonderful and easy to deal with and we were fortunate enough to meet her and her husband the day we checked in. The condo was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the balcony every morning and every evening. The views are fantastic! The location is perfect, within walking distance of everything you need. We loved it so much we are going back for a month next year.

The place was very clean and well decorated. The view could not have been better. We saw dolphens everyday. Well equipted kitchen. Bed was very confortable. We would definitely go back and rent the same place.

The only problem that we had was we picked the wrong week to go because they were having a "Cheer Leading " compition at the hotel the weekend we were there. I have never been around so many rude young people. The litereally took over everything . Resturant, walkways, lobby, they even practiced right in the middle of the main walking areas. Even when they finished eating in the resturant, they would just sit there talking and texting even when they could see that people were waiting for seats and the thing is that no one at the hotel would ever tell them anything.

Everything We Expected

  • 5 of 5

I chose this condo because of the location and what it had to offer. When my wife and I arrived we were not disappointed. The condo is beautiful and very comfortable. It has a great view of the Bay and the city coastline. Everyone who worked at the resort was friendly and helpful. We had an awesome vacation. I was impressed with the easy communication with the owners of the condo and how helpful they were with getting everything set up and giving us information on where to go in PV for an enjoyable time. I highly recommend staying here, you will be happy with your choice.
