About Michael Gregory

My wife and I live in Oregon and have been escaping the cold winter weather by coming to Puerto Vallarta for about 20 years. Early along the way we came across the Escondido Condo building and have stayed here ever since.

Michael Gregory purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michael Gregory chose Amapas

This condo feels like home. The same staff that was here when we first stayed almost 20 years ago is still here, the property is kept immaculate, and is in a safe, 'close to everything' part of town.

What makes this condo unique

The private courtyard with it's own fountain is a joy. Relax under the limbs of a huge Higuera tree in peace and privacy.

A relaxing, comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I spent two weeks in Casita Jardin in the Escondito building of Puerto Vallarta and had a wonderful stay. The condo is conveniently located near a funicular. The condo itself is spacious and comfortable. as well as very well-equipped with dishes and cooking utensils. It is also very quiet. Cleaning is also done twice a week. The place is very attractively furnished and there is a lovely courtyard with fountain. The owners, Michael and Cheryl were very helpful and provided us with a preliminary two page information sheet. We really appreciated all the help that Chuy (the pool, outdoor cleaning and general maintenance person) provided. He is a gem.

Our favorite PV Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this condo and we have already booked a 5 week stay for next year. We are seasoned travelers to PV for the past 15 years. This place has it all. Great location, a wonderful hardworking seasoned staff that have all worked here for at least 10 years, an amazing private gated courtyard with fountain that opens up to the common area pool and if you are so inclined to do some cooking, everything you could possibly need to make an incredible meal. The listing is exactly as advertised, the owners are condo board members and very concerned about the quality of your stay. This is a very small condo community and you feel like you are leaving great friends by the time your stay is over. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Wherever we are!

Best Location and close to all things PV!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Casa Jardin. This is an extremely comfortable condo in the heart of the best area of Puerto Vallarta. The condo has a wonderful large king size bed super comfortable and a large flat screen tv in the bedroom. There is an overhead ceiling fan and an additional fan in the bedroom. There is air conditioning in the bedroom but we don't like to use it so I can definetely say with fans during August we were comfortable. The living room feels large and homey also with ceiling fan and large flat screen tv. You don't feel like you are staying in a stark rental place but more of a home you could live in. The walls have artwork and the shelves have Mexican pottery. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open design and there is a private courtyard with outdoor furniture and a ceiling fan overhead to enjoy being cool while sitting outside. I spent many a day reading on the patio. There is a large shade tree and many plants on the patio. The kitchen is a full kitchen with all you need for cooking. This condo had everything we look for when looking for a place to stay so I would say it ticked all our boxes and more. The communication with the owner was easy and the check in with Emma was easy and convenient. The staff at the condo are great. They have been there a long time and take great pride in their work. Chuey was friendly and helpful. He called for a taxi to take us to the airport and Isabel kept everything clean and even asked if we needed clothes washed. I would definetly want to come back and stay here again. Thank you Michael and Cheryl! You have a wonderful place! Also I should mention all the restaurants are great it didn't matter where we ate. I particularly liked my shrimp burrito at Langostinos on the beach. People are very friendly in Mexico and Puerto Vallarta is a very safe comfortable place. Also nice is the funicular that can take you back up the hill for just a tip to the operator. I miss PV already. I super highly recommend this condo!

A great condo with an awesome location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Michaels beautiful condo. The amenities inside were very comfortable but the outside was the best. A beautiful private large patio with dozens of plants and trees. A beautiful fountain to top it off. There is a cozy, warm pool just steps away from the patio that I typically had to myself. Location! You are just at the top of a hill from 75+ restaurants and the beach. There is this cute little wooden funicular car that takes you up and down for free. You can tip the operator. You could easily cook in the condo but why? The food is amazing. We ate as many places as we could but could not try all that we wanted to. We never had a bad meal. There is a convenience store just a 2 min walk away. We would definitely stay at this vrbo again!

The Get away

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've been to this property. First being back in February 2016 and now. Couldn't stay away! Prior to my first visit I had been hearing of it's charm for over a decade from several friends who have stayed. When I arrived it was exactly how I had imagined it. Relaxing, romantic, and excellent for a couple, or single to have a get away in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. Close to everything Old Town PV has to offer within walking distance. A perfect chill point to decompress, hang by the pool, lounge in the court yard reading a book or visit with friends. Big Thank you to staff and management for being so friendly and accommodating.
