I saw Villa de la Colina 1 (Apt B-8) advertised on homeaway.com and was very impressed with the layout, decor, and amenities that were adverised. And I will say that it completely lived up to my expectations. The condo looked exactly as it was advertised. It was clean and very comfortable. Arranging for the rental was very easy - a few emails exchanged with the owner. Once it was reserved, we were provided with a very detailed email with directions, guidelines, and other general information. We were met at the condo by the property manager who was very friendly and helpful. During our stay we had to call on the property manager once. The gas pilot light on the water heater went out and we lost hot water one evening. It was fixed by early the next morning and there were no other problems or issues.

And yes, the condo is up on a very steep hill (Colina) and on a cobblestone street. It was a bit far down Calle Hortencias and so the walk down to town each day was a bit of a hassle for us. However, there was a shortcut just across the street from our condo which we didn't discover until the very last day which would have made things a bit easier had we known about it. So, I would say that the only negative about the property is its location up the hill. During the day, we walked down the hill to the beach (a 20 minute walk each way). It was very easy to catch a taxi up the hill at a cost of 5 pesos (around $2.50 US).

I do need to mention that the view from the condo balcony was just "decent". We could see out to the town of PV and had great tree top views of the homes and lodgings on the hill below us. One unfortunate view that we had was of two empty buildings --- both sitting empty in the midst of construction (victims of the downturn in the economy). One building (a 4-story structure below the condo) was in front and below the condo. The second building was a huge concrete structure (looked almost like an empty office building) located on a hill to the right of the condo. It was completely deserted which made it a bit eerie looking.

In spite of the less than ideal location (which, to be fair, we did know about going into this) and "average" view, I would definitely recommend this condo as an extremely comfortable and peaceful location for a small or medium size group looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and noise of downtown PV. It definitely rates 4 out of 5 stars.
