Casa McMullen - Most Sought After Beachfront Property

Space 1,450 sq ft
Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Located on the 6th floor of Vista del Sol and facing directly toward the bay, Casa McMullen has just been remodeled in a classically clean and artistic Mexican style. Condos of this quality are rarely found on the rental market, but we love sharing our home with others. You will be right on the beach with restaurants, shops, galleries and nightlife within just a few blocks of your front door. Both the living room and master bedroom open onto a large terrace with breathtaking unobstructed ocean views.

Casa McMullen has all the amenities you want in a vacation home, including free in-room internet WiFi connectivity (as long as you bring your own laptop) and six-day-a-week maid service. The 1,450 sq ft. open floor plan includes two bedrooms (one king/one convertible to king or two twins), two newly renovated bathrooms, dining room, living room, office/library area and fully-equipped kitchen. Our condo has two air-conditioners, ceiling fans, phones (with answering machine), and three satellite high definition plasma TVs which feature most movie channels and a wide range of US Television stations.

The ideal location of Vista del Sol allows you to be as active or relaxed as you want to be. Among the many activities offered within minutes of your doorstep are whale and dolphin watching, canopy tours, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, shopping, fine dining, art galleries and massages. There is no need for rental cars. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is a five minute walk along the newly enhanced Malecon (waterfront walkway), and the bus service is both fun and easy. Cab prices are usually $5-$10 for rides just about anywhere.

Located right on Los Muertos Beach in the charming neighborhood known as Old Town or Zona Romantica, Vista del Sol, widely considered one of the finest and best managed condominium properties in all of Puerto Vallerta. The building features 24 hour doorman service, a large heated roof top pool, an excellent restaurant on the beach (which also offers room service and rooftop pool service), and beach front palapas with food and bar service. Washer and dryer facilities are located in the building for your personal use.

Feel free to email any questions you might have. We know you will enjoy your stay at Casa McMullen as much as we do when we visit our home away from home!

Important note: During the summer months (June - Sept) most HOA's in PV allow condo owners to schedule remodel work to be done between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm. This is not something that we have control over and no refunds will be given due to any noise caused during this time period.

About The Owner

Puerto Vallarta is my home away from home. My parents began visiting here 30 years ago, eventually becoming original owners at Vista del Sol. I inherited the property in 2007 and have been meticulously renovating and updating the property since. What fun we've been having visiting all the local markets and galleries, trying the new (fabulous) restaurants and meeting the wonderful people -- both expats and locals -- who live here. I'll be happy to share my knowledge with anyone who is curious to know more about PV. This is truly a very special place. Enjoy!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Emiliano Zapata

My parents were original owners at Vista del Sol. This was their home for many years, and is now mine. I wouldn't trade it for the world. The unit features all the modern conveniences of home -- except with maid service! There is no place more elegant or affordable in the world to travel right now. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

What makes this condo unique

The property is right on the beach and my unit faces straight out onto the ocean. You get the most fantastic sunsets at night and fall asleep to the subtle crashing of the waves. We are constantly updating and modernizing the unit, but we have worked hard to maintain the clean, modern artisan Mexican style. Vista del Sol is widely recognized as one of the most well-managed buildings on the beach. We feature a rooftop pool, daily maid service (except Sundays) and an outstanding staff. My unit also features complementary WiFi service for those who choose to bring their computers.

Lovely condo with an awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a 12 day stay at Casa McMullen, and we loved it! The beds were very comfortable, and the condo is furnished with everything you need. And the view is just perfect! Beautiful sunsets and people watching on the Malecon. Convenient location for walking to restaurants, catching a bus, or just hanging out on the beach. Would definitely love to stay here again.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Casa McMullen and would highly recommend Melinda's apartment and the Vista del Sol complex. The location and views are the best in PV. Melinda was also very accommodating.

July 4-7, 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

The unit is exactly as stated in VRBO. A fantastic view of the Bay and all the amenities needed for a stay. Great restaurants nearby within walking distance. I recommend Poncho's' Tacos for authentic Mexican tacos and an easy walk. The main living area does not have AC but both bedrooms do. Easy check in and check out. We did not have a car and really didn't need one as everything is so close.

Our first night their we did not have AC in the Master Bedroom and I contacted Melinda the owner and a new AC was installed the next day for that bedroom. I would rent here again! Had a great 3 day stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay! I'm sure our future guests will appreciate your recommendation of Poncho's Tacos! We were, of course, deeply disappointed when the air conditioner conked out, but I'm thrilled that our staff was able to secure and install a new one in less than 12 hours. Again, we're so happy you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to welcoming you back!

What a marvelous home

  • 5 of 5

Many times, the picture on here are not quite current nor representative of the current state of the property. Not the case here! From the moment you walk in and see the ocean vista off your balcony, everything is just marvelous. Tastefully decorated with all the comforts you need, it's perfect. Wifi works great, TVs in each room and AC in both bedrooms (although with the breezes, you probably won't need it.)

It's right on the Malecon in the heart of the old town. Plenty to see and do and eat. The staff at Vista del Sol is always available and very helpful. And the owner is easily available by phone or email and was very very helpful!

You'll love staying here.!
