About Andreas

We are both in our 50ties. Javier is Mexican and is architect. I’m (Andreas) born in Germany living 20 years in Mexico. I studied business law and journalism. So I open my own press and promotion agency on the side. I had my own columns in different newspapers and magazines. The promotion for hotel chains broth me also to Mexico. Playa Del Carmen was at that time a little fishermen’s village and here I dripped in to Javier. So we build our first hotel in Playa del Carmen (Hotel Aventura Mexicana) and opened 3 restaurants. We were missing the scene. So when we came to Puerto Vallarta, we said: Yes welcome to the culture and very friendly, open minded locals and a great gay scene. So we moved with our 2 dogs to Puerto Vallarta. We love it here and made in a short time a lot of friends.

Andreas purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Andreas chose Amapas

No mountain climbing. (like condos in Conche Chinas condos with “ocean view” but very challenging to reach. Gay bars and clubs are close by and also the condo is located at the famous beach 'Playa Del Los Muertos a meeting point for people all over the world. Nobody has to be in a closet, in Puerto Vallarta you are free to enjoy yourself and make new friends. Puerto Vallarta seems to become more popular as a vacation spot. With a beautiful ocean bay, beaches, mountains and lush tropical jungle as the setting. Puerto Vallarta has a charming small-town feel, cosmopolitan lifestyle, privileged climate. While retaining much of its old style Mexican charm, a colorful blend of the old and the new, Puerto Vallarta offers an unrivaled combination of simple pleasures and sophisticated charms. Fine dining restaurants, art galleries, upscale shopping centers, internet cafes and nightclubs peacefully coexist alongside taco stands, street-side vendors selling Mexican handcrafts, traditional open air markets and strolling mariachi bands. Vallarta has over the years built up the infrastructure of a modern resort community, ATM machines, excellent airport, modern medical services, drinkable water supply, and a safe, tolerant environment are now all part of the Vallarta scene. The people are very friendly and open minded and here are a lot of opportunities for people with a different (also for gays) lifestyle. So visiting a tropical paradise doesn't have to be a choice between a modern but sterile place or the alternative of a quaint but primitive existence. Puerto Vallarta has all the quaintness, without compromising on any of the modern conveniences. We're located on one of the largest, deepest, and most stunning natural bays in the world, Bahia de Banderas, which supports almost any form of water recreation imaginable. This bay is where the humpback whales come every winter, where dolphins nest year round. In Puerto Vallarta the air is clean, the sun s

What makes this apartment unique

The condo is located behind the famous beach Playa Del Los Muertos a meeting point for people all over the world. The apartment new finished in December 2012, all furniture are new, it has granite counters in the kitchen and in the bath rooms. Glass doors in the shower and marble walls. All bed rooms have A/C's (Central AC). We offer WI-FI, stereo, DVD, TV, washer, dryer, dish washer and a full equipped kitchen. Easy access to the condo and roof top terrace, because the building has an elevator. Great for people in their age. It great location, just behind the Blue Chair Beach and bars and restaurants close by. Cleaning is incl. in the rate 2 times a week. The balcony with ocean view gives you the option to rest and if you like to smoke. You stay in the middle of all what the romantic zone offers, but the apartment is very quiet. There are a lot of vacation rentals nearby. Yes some of them are less expensive, but... look at pictures and ask when they were last time remodeled and all buildings in downtown (V399, The Park...) are sorrounded by 8 big construcctions of high risers, not fun at all and for sure nobody advise the guests about the noise. Amapas 353 is That’s why we bought our condos in Amapas 353. If you look to the finishing’s and details, you will see a big difference. If you look for a clean Condo on the ocean with comfort, style and art and a good service, our condo is the right place to enjoy your vacation. If you have any question please contact us for more info's. No car needed and no mountain climbing.

We are looking forward to welcome you

Amazing Apartment with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 16 night stay in this wonderful apartment!

We were met by Javier who is friendly and very helpful.

We stayed with our 3 grown up kids. They shared one bedroom(Javier provided us with an extra bed)and my husband and I had the other. The apartment was spacious and there was plenty of room for all 5 of us.

The whole apartment was a perfect balance of style and comfort.

The living area was spacious, comfortable and had a large balcony with amazing views of the Pacific. We had a drink each night and watched the amazing sun sets. The sun sets in the middle of the balcony! The view is spectacular.

The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need - we cooked in some nights to take advantage of the amazing views.

The apartment is well positioned - it is about a 7 min walk to Olas Altas with all it's restaurants.

The apartment block has a spectacular roof terrace with a swimming pool. The terrace has spectacular views of the Ocean and inland of the mountains/jungle.

All 5 of us love our stay and we can't wait to be back!

Fantastic condo location and view

  • 5 of 5

In my 10 years of visiting Puerto Vallarta, I have never stayed anywhere with such an amazing view--both from the condo and the property's roof. The bedrooms were comfortable and everything about the condo was well appointed. Just steps from the beach and a short walk to restaurants made for an overall wonderful trip to PV. I'll definitely be staying here again.

Close to everything

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment, close to the beach, and close to the restaurants on Olas Altas. It is a short walk to the bars as well. Javier was very helpful and attentive as well. He was available for questions and help when we needed him (like when we locked ourselves out of the safe). We visited at the busiest time of the year and you can hear music from the beach and traffic from the road behind. Not a problem if you close the doors. The upstairs roof deck and infinity pool is a great place to relax. There was a friendly atmosphere up there and it was easy to meet other owners and guests in the building.

Owner's Response: Dear Tom, Thanks for your kind review. Like the condo is right in front of the beach, that’s why most of our guests book our condos in this building, you hear some music from the beach. Also it was a holiday for Mexicans and they celebrate there Christmas in a different way, with joy, happiness and dancing. To the traffic behind, yes the holidays are the most busy time of the year, but compare to the downtown/Romantic Zone where are a lot of constructions going on and you have day and night the noise from taxis and buses and till 6 am the laud music from the night clubs, Amapas is a very quiet place. Puerto Vallarta is growing more and more and we are not very happy about it, but you can’t have it all. Friendly Regards Andreas & Javier

Overall great place with amazing rooftop pool

  • 3 of 5

The drawbacks were that the bedrooms sit on the highway side of the building so u really can’t sleep in which is what you really want to do on vacation and the air conditioning in the living area does not cool the place down. Very warm. Maybe it just needs a recharge but very unpleasant for our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear David, Sorry, but we was aspecting from you a bad review. First of all you arrived hours before your normal arriving time, without letting us know. You called me in a very upsetting way when you was in n front of the door. I told you, not to blame us for your flight arrival changes. We gave you a phone number and a email to contact us in case you change your flight. You ignored to inform us. Other guests inform us on time. Anyway you just waited 10 minutes and Javier was there to check you in. If you really had a p problem with the A/C maybe you don’t put attention when Javier explained you how it works. Also you should close the windows when you use the A/C, what you don’t did, what we found out doing cleaning. You also had a phone number to reach us 24/7/365 and let us know about your problem. The bedrooms have double windows and what you call highway is a street with one line each way and not a highway like in the US with 3-4 lines each way. We are very surprised you find not more reasons to complain, but if you look from the beginning (your early arrival) for problems, you always will find something, without telling us when you was staying at the condo??? After I talked to Javier, the administrator about your review, he told me that one of your friends run in to him late night in the Margaritas bar and invited him for a drink, I think that would also a good opportunity to let Javier know about your issues. I think you’re behaviors speaks for them self. All the Best to you and a Merry Christmas and a better New Year. Andreas & Javier
