My week long stay at
CASA DIVISADERO was fantastic.
The 180+ degree view of the bay and city/Beach was mezmerizing from pre-dawn to night time.
The spacious ensuite bedrooms with both ceiling fan or A/C were very comfortable. I loved the traditional Mexican interior decorating and art pieces were lovely.
Great place to enjoy Puerto Valarta!
From the moment you step through the door of this incredible condo, you are in awe. The furnishings, the lighting, the plants...you cannot believe this is a rental and YOU get to stay here! We've rented another property from Don on a previous visit and would highly recommend working with him. He is quick to respond with any questions you may have.
This property has an incredible view of Banderas Bay with multiple, large double doors that open the entire unit to the balcony to take in the view. It has powerful ceiling fans that even in September, kept the main part of the condo pretty comfortable, but it also has air conditioning in the bedrooms to ensure you are really comfortable at night for sleeping. The beds are very comfortable with great linens and an abundance of pillows.
The kitchen, should you decide to cook, has every possible thing you will need to prepare meals. The bathrooms are fully stocked with towels, sunscreen, toiletries, and anything else you may have forgotten to pack. The pool is beautiful and kept sparkling clean. We had it to ourselves the entire stay. The Wi-Fi worked great as did the t.v./netflicks on the rare occasion we turned it on. One feature we really enjoyed was the great stereo system with speakers you could turn off and on in every room, including outside on the balcony. We enjoyed music and wine several nights on the balcony while watching the nightly fireworks show. Did I mention the outdoor bar on the balcony? Again, just amazing-fully stocked with beautiful Mexican glassware & adjustable lighting.
If you are active and want to burn off some of the calories from all the food you've eaten, you can easily walk into Old Town from the condo, however, if you stand in the parking area, cabs are easily hailed, even in September, 40-60 pesos ea. way.
The funicular makes getting up to the penthouse with your luggage quite doable. We used it many times, however, we also climbed the stairs too-again, to burn off those meals.
Maid service came and cleaned several times while we were there. She is very thorough and efficient-always tip her well :-).
I could easily go on and on about this property. This is NOT your typical vacation rental-and we've stayed in more than can be counted over the years. It is truly a special, magical place and one you will want to return to again and again.
Nestled into the cliffs above the bay in Puerto Vallarta one has to pinch themselves when first walking in the view is so spectacular made even more so viewing from this incredible penthouse. Villa seems a more appropriate label. Beautifully designed, decorated and maintained. Yet your not so far up the cliff that one can't walk to the beach if desired. We preferred to cab it. Don't have to call a cab. It's just a short cable car ride down to the lower parking area. You will see the bus or cab platform and wave as they come by frequently. For a guided tour or pick up at the airport we liked Adrian Androde 044 322 127 8191. If it's your first trip he has great suggestions. He is also familiar with getting you to the right villa building. My favorite things about the villa were the beautiful bathrooms, particularly the shower, the air conditioning in both masters, the huge patio balcony that ran the length of the villa, watching the fireworks from the balcony every night, the large water jug replaced every week in the pantry although the frig has filtered water and ice, which we used with no problem. The kitchen has everything one can imagine including spices if you want to eat in. However we mainly ate out as Puerto Vallarta has a breadth of incredible restaurants. Everything fresh and beautifully presented. Ah the fruit- delicious! The beds are quite comfortable and there are double glass doors leading out to the balcony each with its own seating area. Some people like to stay on the water however we loved retreating back to the villa with some take out to our beautiful accommodations and watch the sunset under the gentle hum of our ceilings fans or refresh in the swimming pool and watch the sunset pool side. Best rental experience ever! Enjoy!
A spectacular panoramic view of the bay and city welcomed us to this amazing condo in the Colonia Amapas district of Puerto Vallarta! The 2 master penthouse condo has a 7,000 sq ft patio for reading, sunning or just relaxing. The pristine beach, old town PV and great restaurants are only a 15-20 minute walk. We will definitely return soon.
We spent as much if not more time in the condo than we did anywhere in Vallarta! The lavish decor and extensive art work throughout made it feel like we were in a royal residence. At the same time the space was so comfortable and accommodating that it was truly renewing. We enjoyed the best views of our trip from our own terrace where we caught sunsets each evening and watched the town come alive in the morning. Such attention to detail as soft accent lighting everywhere, beautiful lush plants, the terrace fountain's soothing trickle,and the variety of art representations throughout continued to delight us. Being only a few steps from our ocean view pool was a treat as well! This was our first trip to here, it was perfect and we plan to return to stay here again every year! Thank you, Don, for providing such an exquisite home away from home!
My family stayed in this condo for our week vacation in Puerto Vallarta. I'm always apprehensive when renting accomodations for the first time, but when we walked into the condo, we all dropped our bags and zombie walked around the condo speechless - including my 15 year old son. We were stunned to see how amazing our home for the week was. Our favorite feature was the massive balcony with views of the ocean. Loved the way that all rooms opened to the balcony with multiple 10 foot foldaway doors that brought the outside in so you could enjoy ocean views from all rooms. The condo is decorated impeccably with beautiful art pieces and appointments you may not have even thought of. The balcony included a bar, dining table, bbq grill and chaise lounges. The kitchen was very well stocked and the beds were comfy. Also, the whole unit is filled with well cared for plants that makes you feel as though you are in an tropical oasis! If you have the opportunity to rent this condo, don't pass it up. You won't be sorry.
Spent a perfect week in Don's magnificent condo. The views were phenomenal-we spent nearly every evening on the balcony sipping on tropical drinks and watching many a firework show in town. The condo is spotless and has everything you need to feel at home. And Don was so accommodating and charming! We will be back.
