Apartment for a month.

Hi all,

I haven't been around much in the past few years but we are thinking of going for a month in September. yes, I know it rains... a lot!

We are looking to stay either in El Centro or Old town. Looking to pay up to $1200.00 a month. Smoking ok, a pool is iffy, one bedroom. Looking for a nicer apt. I saw a few online that are just too basic...I guess we got spoiled by staying at Plaza Mar in the penthouse. Can not afford that for a month.

Anyone have any friends or people they could recommend?

Another good option is airbnb.com, there are a lot of places in your price range.

Just watch the utilities. If you get a great deal on the rent and then pay $500 extra for CFE, you might be surprised. AC is very expensive (although this year has been cooler than normal). We looked at buying an investment condo at Villa Magna, and the electrical was $480 when rented for the month. On top of the $280 HOA fee...

Same in Hotel Conchas Chinas. The penthouse had a very reasonable HOA fee but when it was occupied, the rate went to $480 whether you used the AC or not! Just make sure you know what you are getting into. Act dumb and ask lots of questions because the standards may be different than what you expect.

I use and love www.vallarta-getaways.com. They rent monthly. On their website look under the "Unique Old Town Rentals" tab. Last time I was at el Escondido there were a few longer term guests, anywhere from a month to a year.

The best you could do is to try a condo in Vallarta Shores, they are rigth on the beach, in Los muertos beach. I been there many times and it is just beatiful and I know in september you can get a good deal. I always call them to make reservations, but you could use they web page www.vallartashores.com
