I expect guests to live quietly and this is a no smoking condo..and all the condos are open air on the back, which means that noise is heard in any unit that is loud...I live above and occasionally I entertain but my parties end by 11:00. Also always lock the house when leaving..We live in a very safe neighborhood but we are still very cautious about security.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - you need to be able to handle a flight of stairs...
Potential for noise - Only occasionally like 2 x a year a Mexican Neighbor throws a party and it lasts for hours...ear plugs provided...BUT THIS IS ONLY 2x a YEAR...
Some spaces are shared - The Laundry room which is off the bedroom needs to be accessed by the maids and the owner, always with your notice and permission.

This apartment in Puerto Vallarta is truly adorable. Firstly it is so tranquil and quiet - which can be difficult to find in such a vibrant city. It is also very comfortable, with lots of little touches to make you feel at home- fantastic bed with lovely soft sheets and pillows, beautiful artwork, well stocked kitchen, washing machine...and a tub! The little outdoor seating area is very cute and adds a wonderful extra space to the apartment. We were so well looked after by Robbin, Carla and Rosario. I would not hesitate to book this place again as it is amazing. One of the best Airbnb's we have experienced.

The place was lovely and very spacious. Nicer than expected. Funky and artistic. Old Puerto Vallarta charm..The bed was really comfortable and the fountain lulled us to sleep. The location is great and easy access to Malecon and restaurants, but one does have to be prepared to climb several flights of street stairs upon returning home. Very quiet considering it is right in town. really enjoyed our stay. Would love to come back and will recommend it to our friends.

If you're looking for an oasis of calm and beauty in the center of Puerto Vallarta, this is it. As the only apartment directly opening onto the central courtyard of a small residential building, it's a fountained hideaway of peace and quiet in an otherwise busy city. Ideally located just steps from arguably the three best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and many of the city's art galleries. A 5-minute walk to the beachfront esplanade, A 10-minute walk to the touristy hotel zone and its beaches -- and completely insulated from the noise of the city -- an ideal location to explore Puerto Vallarta. The key feature of the apartment is the personality of the condo's owner who lives one unit above and is a font of knowledge and entertainment not to be missed ;)

Being at Robbin's place is like visiting a dear family friend. Her lovely colorful home, filled with her own art and other Mexican artwork, is perfectly located in the old part of town and close to everything including galleries, great restaurants, the malecon and a short walking distance to Zona Romántica and the beaches. Robbin is one of the most gracious, welcoming and cheerful person I have met in a long time. A perfect stay with a perfect host. Highly recommended.

Fantastic local apartment, if you want to stay with the locals this is the place to do it. Within walking distance to anything you need. A few blocks from the ocean and plenty of places to shop. Robbin gave us alot of information about the neighborhood and was always available in one form or another.

I 'm a Mother / Grandmother recently retired from Real Estate relishing my life here at the River Mill where I hike, cook, paint, read, practice and teach yoga and ride my bike. I live in several of these condos using one primarily as my residence, another as a guest house and the third as my yoga and art studio. All of the units are unique with the 26" thick granite walls and the ages of 160 years imprinted in the stone , with the river either just outside the window , or a short trail from the stone patio to its banks and all comfortably furnished with lovely antique furnishings, books, and full kitchen.

In the winter I live in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico renting out my North Carolina spaces for full winter rentals. In Mexico I enjoy the perfect winter climate and all that goes with it..renting out one of my two connected condominiums located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta just minutes from the ocean. I wake up every morning to the sounds of the city coming alive, prepare the rich locally roasted and grown coffee beans and head with my dog Carlos down to the ocean (3 minutes) to walk along the pedestrian Malecon (boardwalk) fronting the ocean with the sun rising over the mountains and brilliantly lighting the fishing boats as they start working the waters. Truly a rich beginning to wonderful days spent fully occupied painting, studying language, cooking regional foods, practicing yoga, and meeting with friends from all over the world. An international life experienced on a fraction of what it costs to live in the states.
