Beach House Testimonials

Great time at the Beach House!!

“My three children and I take a one week vacation each year. Its our chance to leave everything behind to relax, catch up and have fun. This yearly trip is very important and special to each of us. This year was a great success, our week at the Beach House was incredible!! Its beautifully designed, comfortable in every sense of the word. Its clearly someone’s home away from home. The ICON property is also full of design surprises, my kids and I especially enjoyed the four person lounge chair facing the sea down by the pool. We spent many late afternoons there napping and playing cards. We greatly enjoyed our time in Vallarta. Rene was great helping us nail down last minute logistics. Thanks!!”

Our stay at the Beach House at Icon was simply fabulous.

“We were a family of four with two teenage girls. We stayed one week and were sad to leave. The condo is truly beautiful. The views from both the front and back balcony were mesmerizing. The condo itself is exactly how it is pictured, well appointed, comfortable and spacious. We loved the Icon resort property so much. It is a very safe complex with a very diligent security team; the concierge was also so helpful and welcoming. The pool/beach club staff was superb and the food was delicious. There were plenty of vendors on the beach that we were able to rent us jet skis, take us on banana boat rides and take us parasailing. There is a super market a block away, well stocked with everything you will need. There are some great restaurants in walking distance from Icon that were fantastic. The Asador La Vaca Argentia was our favorite. The servings were generous, great for leftovers! If you take a short cab ride to marina, don’t miss Victor’s for dinner and breakfast. The staff was so friendly and the food was authentic Mexican food. We went to a few higher end, special occasion restaurants, Café des Artistes and Vista Grill, both restaurants won’t disappoint. We had a day trip snorkeling to Boca, a beautiful white sandy beach with crystal blue water, worth the trip. The only small glitch the entire trip was the Wi-Fi was a bit unreliable, but we were told that this is how it is in Mexico. It turned out to be a great excuse to unplug, which we did! We watched an electrical storm over the bay for two hours one night; it was fantastic! Thank you Rene for letting us experience this special place, we will definitely be back!”

This was hands down the most enjoyable Airbnb experience my partner and I have had thus far.

“The property is pretty spectacular. It’s offers amazing views, elegance and contemporary style, great privacy and lots of space. Rene and Steve are really good people. We found lots in common. We would loved to have hung out with them longer. This vacation was faultless. The only negative was realizing we had to come home! Thanks you Rene and Steve. You are model hosts and offer – literally – a model home. Mirco and I already miss The Beach House.

“We felt very welcome in the Beach House Unit. Rene had Marcos meet us upon check in when we arrived. They had taken our flight details so they were prepared to welcome us when we got to the Icon building lobby. Rene also left us a nice bottle of wine and a note wishing us a good holiday. We had stayed at Icon before, but this unit was decorated even better, very comfortable, clean, and had anything and everything you would need during your stay. The view is also spectacular from the unit, you can hear the ocean crashing when you have the sliding doors open facing the beach. We ordered cleaning service 2 days while there, and they did a great job. Rene and Steve showed us their other unit, which is also lovely. My parents joined us and they also really enjoyed the stay. There was also an apple TV that made it convenient for movie and TV watching, along with cable, and fast Wi-Fi. The place is nicely decorated with comfortable furniture and beds!

The view is amazing, location is great, walking distance from the grocery store Soriana, so getting things for cooking and food was easy, there is also a convenient store right out of the building. The beach club makes A-mazing Ceviche and drinks!”

Have stayed in the Icon before, but the beach house was beautiful.

“Amazing view, beautifully appointed, convenient to all shopping and an easy cab ride into PV. The pool is by far the highlight of this property, you won’t find anything like it elsewhere. Also, the fact that there is a beach bar makes it feel like a hotel but you still have the feeling that you are at home. Great vacation!”

THE BEACH HOUSE is exceptional!

This lovely condo in the Icon Vallarta was exceptional in every way!

This trip was planned for my husband and I and another couple. We had originally booked another condo in October 2015 for our trip in February 2106. A week and a half before the trip we received an email saying that our booked/confirmed unit was not available. In a panic, I was desperately trying to find an alternative and then saw Rene’s condo. Rene threw us a lifeline when she notified us that her Beach House unit was available. Communication was immediate and very professional in every way. She assured me I was in good hands and that we would not be disappointed…we certainly were not! The condo is decorated and cared for with such pride of ownership and concern for her guest’s comfort. No want or need goes unanswered. For anything you may need to stock the pantry a grocery store is a short walk away. We had a marvelous time and we were so happy we found this gem in Puerto Vallarta!”

“The view, the beds, the location, the beach- fantastic.

Our family of 5 stayed 8 nights in the beach house condo and thoroughly enjoyed it. With 3 teen daughters the condo allowed us the space to be a family and relax. A very different experience from an all-inclusive. The kitchen was well equipped and shopping was a 5 minute walk. Highly recommended. Thank you for a wonderful time!”

Most amazing vacation ever!

“I honestly haven’t had a better time in my life and words can’t describe how perfect everything was!

The building, the services, the people and most of all this amazing apartment. I hope to do this ever year and make it a tradition. Rene has gone all out and after seeing so many different units in the building… This one is by far the best!!!

Excellent option!

“The “Beach House” at Icon Vallarta really was an excellent choice for staying in Puerto Vallarta. Everything you need is available, and I’d definitely stay there again at “The Beach House” again if I have the chance to. Very kind and useful staff as well.”

“We have just returned from a fabulous four week stay at this wonderful property. We travel to PV every winter and have stayed at many lovely places but nothing can come close to this experience. The Icon and especially this luxurious condo itself were everything Rene promised and more. The attention to detail made us feel we were guests in a personal home. Everything you could want is provided for. The beds with their pillow top mattresses and luxe Barbara Berry linens were amazing. The view from the oversized balcony was breathtaking and the private elevator was a treat. The property has many hotel type amenities. The beachside bar served great food and drinks at reasonable prices and it was a good place to meet many nice people. Of course the sunsets were gorgeous and the weather perfect for all 28 days.

We will highly recommend this place to anyone. The tough part was leaving but we are happy in knowing that we have already planned our return visit in 2015.”

Awesome roomy comfortable condo I can’t think of anything that was missing. Amazing furnishings!!!
So private & quiet, yet so close to anything you could want. Like shopping or adventure tours, even horses right on the beach, dining or out & about.”

“My wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary and it was perfect. Everyone loved the home, setting, elaborate decorations. We had 10 other friends staying in other units at the Icon and everyone wished they would have splurged and stayed in our unit like this one. The service we received from Rene and her staff was phenomenal.. We enjoyed the beach, jet skis, massages in our suite, and rented a boat for a day of snorkeling and fishing. Absolutely stunning home “The Beach House” and amenities!!”

As soon as the elevator opened up into the condo suite our jaws dropped!

Thanks to this stunning home we had a fabulous trip! Believe it, this home is even more gorgeous in person than it is in the pictures shown. My husband and our 2 children will be coming back. The pool and bar/restaurant are also nice spots for reading, relaxing or socializing if one chooses.”

Exceeded our expectations

“We came to PV for my niece’s wedding. There were about 20 of us staying in different units at the ICON. Everyone agreed that our unit was the NICEST and the most BEAUTIFULLY decorated! The pictures on line do not do this place justice. We LOVED the Apple TV.

The staff was attentive to all of our needs and very polite. The pool area was never crowded and the beach area had a big selection of activities.”
