About the property

Incredible 1Bed/1 Bath Beachfront Home, Panoramic Views And Every Amenity

Perched directly on the Pacific, waves lapping the sands below your balcony in the sky, just minutes from downtown, the history, the nightlife, the food, and the culture. All that is Mexico and Puerto Vallarta is right here.

Your home features all resort amenities including available all inclusive at a handsomely discounted price; private beach, beautiful pools, gym, tennis courts, complimentary secured parking and some of Vallartas finest shopping and restaurants just steps away.

Too much of Vallarta's year round sun, no worries, on site medical services available. Mom and Dad need a romantic evening together, but what about junior? We've got it! We have available childcare available as well. Ever wanted to sail the Pacific? Here you can. We'll be happy to arrange one of the finest ships in Vallarta for you or you and the crew, just let us know and we'll do all the planning.

1242 is equipped with expansive marble shower and bath two full beds giving room for up to 4 guests, a pullout sofa and a hide a bed add room for 1-2 more. Personal beach chairs, umbrella, to go tumblers and cooler will make that panga trip to Yelapa even more refreshing. All the beach chairs are filled? So what? You'll have your own! Blue Tooth audio system for relaxing tunes and two flat screens just in case the big game and you holiday are on the same day. Extensive cable with multiple English news and movie channels, in case you decide to check in on the world thats not in paradise. Built in safe. Wine rack, blender, counter top oven and all appliances and necessities to have a romantic night at home, or have over a few friends. The master bedroom has pocket doors, which make it a private oasis from the rest of the home, if you care to be alone. The view from your balcony is among the best in PV, seating for 4, and room for more, with views of the night skyline, stars, fireworks, sunset, whales, beach and much more. It is all here, and that is just speaking of your home at 1242 Pacific. Need to check email, or a few minutes of computer time? Why not do it with incredible views of the Pacific from the ocean view, ensuite workstation with wifi private to the condominium! There is much more that awaits you in Puerto Vallarta, I hope for you to explore it all, it may take some time, but it is worth it! You will find 1242 Pacific beyond compare in location, options and amenities.

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.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your condo with us. I hate to say to many good things because we want it to be our secret! The views are amazing, the condo is perfect, the views are spectacular and the resort is really nice. We appreciate how you had it set up and all the info. you passed on to us. We ended up doing the all inclusive and it worked out really well. The price is now $55 a day for this. We did not want to go home. Make sure you go into town and walk the neighborhoods around the Malecon. We can't wait to come back and stay here again.

Comfy condo with million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great value for the price. Very well equipped, excellent A/C, fast internet and an attentive host. And of course that amazing panoramic view of Banderas Bay. Booking process was easy and quick. John always replied promptly to my questions. He also arranged a cleaning half way through our nine day stay, which was appreciated and unexpected. We found his guest guide full of good suggestions and tips.

The only negative about staying at this resort is that the pool area is extremely crowded. It is not large enough for the number of guests, especially since the resort sells day passes to people not staying at the resort. I am still giving a five star review because sitting by the pool was not my first priority. The condo comes equipped with great beach chairs and a sun umbrella so we were able to enjoy sitting in the sand away from the crowd making for a relaxing stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review for us! It was great having you stay. And si, the pools do get busy during certain points throughout the year. I noticed this myself a few years ago so I picked up the chairs cooler and umbrella so our guests had their own and didnt need to look for them which Im glad did the trick for you. We look forward to having you return as our VIP guests.

wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We've never stayed at an all-inclusive before and wanted the option to participate or just roam the city. This condo gives you the option of both (FYI all inclusive is a separate charge through the resort). John has provided a binder full of very useful information and tips that I think would be valuable to a new and experienced Puerto Vallarta visitor. He provided a very welcoming experience and even worked with me when I realized I'd forgottent to request early check-in. If I stay in a condo in Puerto Vallarta again, I would definitely request this one.

Owner's Response: Thanks Christina, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the information helpful. Its a little long but are all the things I wish I would have known when I first started traveling here, andI update them frequently when things change. I hope it removes any questions our guests might have that travel here for the first time and may be some new ideas for those who have come many times before. You are always welcome and I would be very happy to have you stay again.

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!
