The listing was very accurate and the host was most kind and responsive. If you want to get a feel for living in old city centre of PV, then this is the place for you. It features 3 bedrooms, one of which faces the vista and terrace looking out into the hillside and ocean view. Did I mention the VIEW? Incredible!
As the condo is in a very residential neighborhood, you will hear the occasional barking of the dog, noises of the late nightlife lightly pulsating through the air, and people sweeping their terraces.
The living room is quite comfortable. If you're not capable of walking up steep hills, this is probably not a ideal spot for you as this condo is located at the top of a hill. No problem walking down but walking up can be tiring. We were a group of young guys so it was fine.
A few recommendations to improve upon:
1. The shower heads should be replaced and upgraded for stronger water pressure. The shower head/water pressure was somewhat frustrating and low.
2. The provided towels seem to pill and you end up with white cotton balls all over your skin, hair, clothes. Maybe recommend drying the towels or upgrading them.
3. The hot tub is a nice feature. However, if the hot tub is an important feature for you, we found the water heater never quite warmed the water to a desired warmth. However, we did find use of the tub - just do not expect very warm/hot water - it's more tepid but relaxing with the bubbles.
4. As far as directions go, the first time arriving we had some issues finding the location of the condo as it's off of an alleyway and unless you have a taxi driver in the know, you may need to direct the driver where to go. As we booked a pre-paid taxi/driver service from the airport, we got stuck in a van with a driver who had NO CLUE where to go. We eventually found the condo after I asked the driver to let us off at Iturbide and Emilu Carranza, and I walked around the vicinity, turned a corner and finally found a man who pointed me to Casa De Olga. Once we found it, we never forgot it or where to go thereafter!
In short, this is a charming condo for short term rental. If you plan on cooking, there are no real grocery stores in the area - in fact, I could only find convenience shops OXXO in the area. There are so many fantastic restaurants in PV - who would want to cook?
If you plan on staying in PV for a long stay, I would say this place is fine provided walking up a steep hill on your way home each night doesn't get old or annoying. Just plan on utilizing taxi's to get back!
Thanks for a great and memorable stay. ENJOY!
