About John

It is my mission and personal commitment to each and every one of my guests to provide the best vacation experience that can possibly be had in this beautiful city and country. Every item within the property, all of the information I provide to my guests, every service offered, and every question answered I provide from the perspective of my guests. If it would make a vacation easier, more complete or in any way better for me if I were the traveller, I do my very best to make it present and available to you as my guest. Having lived here for a few years I have developed knowledge contacts, and ideas that will hopefully be helpful and perhaps bring something new to the experience of even those who have been here multiple times before. Just thinking about Vallarta for your next vacation, and have a few questions? Ask away! I am always happy to help, even if you choose to stay elsewhere. I look forward to speaking with you and perhaps having you enjoy this as your home in Vallarta.

John purchased this condo in 2013

Why John chose Hotel Zone

Please see the comments about me. But it is all that you need and more, and an amazing home base, if you are like me, and come to a place to explore, and equally welcoming if you just wish to watch the waves, sleep late, and take long showers and walk to the ocean for a massage. This has everything.

Amazing PV Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in PV was everything we hoped for... relaxing and enjoyable. John was the perfect host. The info he provided before our trip was very comprehensive and anticipated any questions a renter might have. The interior was exactly as in the photos with everything one could need from a comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, marvelous shower and fantastic balcony view. The resort personnel were most helpful and the resort amenities wonderful. The location was great with the grocery store a short walk, taxis at your disposal, and bus stops right in front of the resort. Thank you, John, for sharing your condo with us!

Million dollar view in a comfortable and well maintained condo.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from eight nights in 1242. We were amazed by the view which is even better than the photos. We watched the beach action every morning and saw whales several times during our stay. The condo is clean and well maintained. We cooked breakfast every morning as well as our catch from a fishing trip. It was great to have a kitchen and everything we needed to cook a few meals. The beach is clean and not too crowded during the busy holiday. We enjoyed long beach walks daily. The location is near a grocery store Soriano which had everything we needed There are some great restaurants in PV. I highly recommend hopping the bus and eating there as often as possible! Our favorite restaurant was Melissa's. We had our best meal there. It is reasonable and the family is wonderful. The other best find is the food truck park across the street. The bar has amazing and huge margaritas. The tacos and burritos from the vendors are delicious. John was very helpful with local information and helped us to arrange a day trip to Yelapa which was a highlight for us. We will definitely return to this property!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third extended stay in Johns condo. As in the past and as mentioned by most other reviewers, the condo just may be the best value in PV. oceanfront, best view possible and very well equipped and comfortable. For us the location is ideal , beautiful swimming beach, well maintained resort in hotel zone, easy taxi or bus ride to town and all that PV has to offer outside of the resorts themselves. John is constantly upgrading his condo to insure a pleasant visit with all the comforts of home. As I have mentioned in past reviews, perhaps the most important item is John himself, very responsive and involved and extremely helpful and available. Throughout all our dealings have always found him to have the highest integrity and always honest and easy to work with. We feel very lucky and fortunate to have found John and his condo for our PV vacations.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely ADORED John's place! The views were fabulous, we had breakfast on the balcony every morning and return in the evening for our cocktails. John provided us with beach chairs and an umbrella so we could sit anywhere on the beach, rather than waiting for open seats. I would suggest to people that they venture away from the resort, we did the all inclusive for a day and weren't too thrilled by it, so for the other days we would eat out or grab a roasted chicken from a food stand and eat at the condo. The food truck park across the street is a must! Thank you, John, for being incredibly helpful and letting us enjoy a week away in your amazing place.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for the review. I agree with you 100%! Vallarta has an absolutely incredible food scene from the Mom and Pop street vendors to 5 star dining. This is why I always urge my guests to get out and explore. All inclusive is a great convenience to have for days when you feel like lounging around but if you dont get out and experience some of the local cuisine, you are a missing a big part of what Puerto Vallarta is. Even if you happen to be feeling lazy, theres so many great places right nearby, the food truck park always has something new to try which is pretty cool as well. I am so happy you had such a good time and I hope to have you come again!

Cute condo

  • 4 of 5

Very cute condo with a spectacular view. The condo had everything we needed. John was a fantastic owner to work with and he made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Checkin and checkout were simple. The building is old and going through a remodel on the outside. The biggest thing we didn't understand was that there is an option to buy the properties All Inclusive food/drink option at $50 per person per day, but if you choose NOT to buy this you cannot buy anything at any of the hotel restaurants, bars, etc. No drinks at the pool. That was disappointing. The condo was nice for our last two nights in PV.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks, Thank you for your review. And you are correct , the resort is an all inclusive resort so all hotel guests are mandatorily required to do all inclusive at a nightly price substantially higher than the private condominiums. However the resort has extended an excellent offer to our guests to purchase at 50 USD. This way you can choose any day you would like all inclusive and not feel as if you have wasted money on days you decide to explore Vallarta's incredible culinary scene. Even with choosing all inclusive for the day our rate still is well below the hotel nightly charge. The condos are much larger, with better views in many cases and are much more like a home with living rooms, kitchens and, at least in our case, much more well equipped with most anything you need. I hope that our listing did not appear deceptive in any way as we try to be as clear as possible about all policies and procedures for all of our guests. Thanks again and we would be vry happy to have you return.
