About the property

4th floor studio ocean front

Welcome to a quit undiscovered treasure. This non-smoking studio is right on the most beautiful beach (Playas Gemelas) in Puerto Vallarta with white sand and blue water! The view from the balcony is stunning. Facing north you see the ocean and can look east to see the city lights at night. During the season we see whales right from our balcony. Though this is not a 5 star resort, it is quiet and old Mexico style. Not for everyone. If you want to get away from the hustle and noise, this is the place.

Town is a short bus or taxi ride away (5 miles).

Girasol Sur is very charming with an excellent restaurant right on the water next to the pool for a romantic evening. Very quiet and relaxing. Or you can go to the market and prepare your own meals.

About Terry&Jackie Bell

We are newly retired this year and have been going to Puerto Vallarta since 1997 and have loved it all this time. We own a timeshare at Paradise Village since 1997. We have always wanted to own a place on the ocean ourselves.

We spend our summers in northern Michigan in the great City of Alpena right on the 45th parallel. We just moved back here from Phoenix AZ where we worked as nurses at the Mayo Clinic.

Terry&Jackie Bell purchased this studio in 2014

Why Terry&Jackie Bell chose South Zone

We found this place 2 years ago while exploring real estate there. We fell in love with Girasol Sur as soon as we walked in! The grounds are well kept and a pleasure to walk through. We found as soon as we walked in to our unit we couldn't believe what we saw. Our timeshare is on the north side of the bay and it's very nice, but the beach is nothing like Girasol. There is a good sense of community here also. We see the whales right from our balcony as well as the sea rays jumping out of the water!

What makes this studio unique

Quiet, and newly updated with a great little restaurant. The staff here is so very helpful. Transportation is quite simple here. The bus stops in front about every 10-15 minutes. All the units at Girasol have great views of the ocean. Ours faces north and is one of the most desired views. So we also have beautiful night views of the city. We have already installed a new mini-split AC which also expands the view a little more. We have a nice screen door on the entrance for great cross breezes. The ocean side is all glass to take advantage of the view. The living area has a mirror that looks like a window and reflects the view while lying in bed. Of course the ocean sound is great too. Swimming in the ocean on the north beach is wonderful.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other properties in different areas of Puerto Vallarta but keep returning to Girasol Sur. It is located right on the ocean with 2 great beaches on either side. Pool is in the middle and what can be better than relaxing pool side, looking out at the ocean, listening to the surf and being shaded by palm trees . Very laid back location, but only a 15 minute bus ride (bus stop right outside the condo) to town where you have an endless choice of restaurants. Terry and Jackie were great to deal with and were very responsive to any enquiries we had. Would be difficult to stay anywhere else!
