Apartments and Condominiums
Puerto Vallarta abounds with apartments and condominiums, mostly available for one week or more. Many of the best-buy Puerto Vallarta apartments and condos are concentrated in the colorful Olas Altas–Conchas Chinas south-side district and high-season rates run from about $500 per month for modest studios to $1,000 and more for three-bedroom houses.
One of the most recommendable local apartment and condo rental agents is friendly Bayside Properties (F. Rodríguez 160, tel. 322/223-0898 or 322/223-4418, fax 322/223-0898, dosgatos [at] pvnet [dot] com [dot] mx, www.baysidepropertiespv.com), a few doors uphill from Avenida Olas Altas in the heart of the Olas Altas district.
Other well-established south-of-Cuale rental agencies that you may find useful are Tropicasa Realty (Pulpito 45A, corner of Olas Altas, tel. 322/222-6505, fax 322/222-2555, www.tropicasa.com) and Tango Rentals (tel. 322/224-7398, U.S./Can. tel. 310/494-9970, www.tangorentals.com), run by personable Agustín Bas and his partner, Marjorie Torrance. They offer a wide range of vacation rentals, from modest condos to luxurious villas, especially in the intimate south-of-Cuale neighborhood.
Furthermore, a number of U.S.-based agencies specialize in the more luxurious rentals scattered all over the city.
Other apartments are rentable directly through local managers. The following listing includes some of the best-buy Olas Altas apartments and condominiums. Most of these are rentable only by the week or month. Some managers declined to state specific weekly or monthly rates, preferring to leave specific prices negotiable with prospective tenants.
