About this apartment

This Beachfront/Oceanfront 82m2, one bedroom, one bath condo offers spectacular panoramic views of Banderas Bay. It is situated on the southern part of Puerto Vallarta town. The balcony overlooks the ocean where you can watch dolphins at play or whales passing by during winter season. The compound has two heated swimming pools plus one separate little pool for kids with its own small waterfall. The exquisitely maintained grounds and gardens are rich with tropical trees, plants and flowers. There is a turtle sanctuary onsite with baby turtle releases at sunset during hatching season. Reception will call everyone to let them know when this is happening.
There is a little supermarket in the compound next door for all your basic needs as well as a wonderful Palapa restaurant which you reach through the beach. Taxis are conveniently located and buses could not be easier, running every 10 minutes and will take you directly into town. This is a perfect location, away from the noise and the crowds but only 10 minutes from all the exciting restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries in the quaint town of Puerto Vallarta.

There is very friendly and helpful 24 hr. reception (English speaking) to help with your questions and needs as well as security every day, all year round.

    Another Wonderful Stay

    This was our third stay in this condo and again had a very satisfying experience. With one bedroom, it's perfect for a couple. Large balcony overlooking a beautiful beach, quiet (except for waves continually breaking, which we love). Monika and Luis are very friendly and easy to communicate with.

    Feels Like Home!

    We just love it here...our third time in this condo after an number of years in another. It's a welcome respite of relaxation after a busy week in the Romantic Zone. We will be back next year! It was nice to meet you Monika & Luis...sorry the circumstances weren't better!

    We had a wonderful holiday at Monika’s condo in Playa Gemelas! The location is perfect, the beach is gorgeous, the condo is beautifully decorated and spotless, and the view from the patio is stunning!! The pool areas and the gardens are very well maintained. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We can hardly wait to return!! Christine and Mark

    Better than the photos!

    This place is amazing! We enjoyed the apartment- had everything we needed. Plus it’s steps from the beach. The pictures don’t do it justice, the space was great. If we come back to PV we will try to stay here again. It’s about 15 mins from town, easy taxi ride over. The place is quiet during the night. Beach doesn’t get too crowded. The lobby will help reserve chairs and umbrellas. The little side restaurant is great for breakfast or an easy lunch. We really enjoyed our stay! Thanks Monika.

    We had a wonderful time staying at Monika’s condo at playas Gemelas. We highly recommend it!

    Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo. The unit is very modern and lovely. The view of the ocean is fantastic and we saw humpback whales three times. We had a fun adventure and hired someone to take us to the waterfall at Quimixto and lunch at Las Animas at a restaurant called Los Conos. We ordered a seafood platter and it was the best lunch ever. This was our second time at Playas Gemelas and we really like that it is very quiet and mellow. The pools aren’t crowded and the beach is one of the best in Puerto Vallarta. We also had quite a few dinners at the restaurant next door at Girosol. It’s a very nice restaurant under a palapa right on the ocean. The service is great and they have live music three times per week during the high season. They will even deliver to you right on the beach. We highly recommend booking a stay - you will love it. Muchos gracias Monika!
