Guests rave about the panoramic view and the blend of traditional Colonial and Contemporary Design. The Designers created shaded and sunny seating areas and the open light infused living space is accented by beams. The palapa accessed by a staircase has loungers that provide a unique floating view over the bay and 360 degree views - great private deck to watch the world (and the occasional whale!) drift by. The crown jewel of your space. So good that multiple guests "complain" its hard to leave!
The penthouse is really on top of all of the traditional Puerto Vallarta with a light filled open panoramic living space. The real Mexican Barrio experience is here. A short stroll down to the sea, art galleries, tequila museum, quality restaurants and more. You have shaded and covered decks and a roof top palapa with loungers to take advantage of that panoramic view. These decks are private - not like other rooftop decks that you get to share with other building residents and their families. Kitchen, dining room, lounge, bathroom are fully equipped Large bedroom features king bed with carved wood headboard and new pillow-top mattress.

Our casa contains 3 apartments and we live in the centre one - so your penthouse is up above us. The palapa is accessed from your deck up a circular staircase (1 drink max up there!) In order to access the view we are located up a hill so 150 yard pedestrian access up a sloping cobble stone ramp and stairs means this location is not suitable for those with mobility issues.
Good news is that you will not need a gym membership to shed those extra pounds from enjoying the Mexican food and maybe the odd Margarita or Cerveza. You have your own entrance door and a marble staircase leading to the penthouse from a common hall shared with our apartment.
Interaction with guests
We live in the building on the second level and have owned the property for 10 years. We live here ( not off-site) so we are always available to make your stay a memorable one. We know from our own experience of traveling and using Airbnb that we prefer resident hosts as it enhances the experience. We know the city well and you will find a personal travel guide in the penthouse. We are able to have someone meet and greet you at the Airport upon arrival for $25 - just let us know what time that you are arriving.
Other things to note
If you are able to use travel backpacks or wheeled luggage it will make your transit easier to get up to the apartment as we live in El Cerro (The hill).
We will need access to your space to water the plants and change the luxurious towels. Bedding will be changed twice a week.
The location of the apartment is not suitable for people with mobility issues as access is up a 150 yard sloped ramp and/or some stairs. We do not permit smoking either in apartment or on the deck. Air conditioning available in the bedroom for additional US$15 day to cover electrical costs. For the comfort and security of our guests and residents no additional guests are permitted in the apartment. No loud noise after 10 pm. We will try our best to accommodate prior requests for different check in/ check out times but this may incur an additional cost. Lost key will be US$50 for re-keying lock. Temporary tattoos and bronzing lotions can permanently stain bedding and towels so if that happens you are responsible for their replacement. Hammock is an additional option provide by us for your enjoyment please do not use shoes, clothes with buttons or lotions when using it. As it is easily damaged we will remove it at your request if not required. We check it after every guest departs and if there are any pulls or damage to the fine fabric you agree that we can bill you for the US$100 replacement cost.
