Oceanfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Sleeps 2-4 guests with comfort and ease.
Hi, I'm Michel Rubini. the very happy owner of Home Of The Dolphins. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Puerto Vallarta in 2000 and fell in love with it immediately. I have been blessed with the good fortune to be able to live here with the wonderful Mexican people and share in their relaxed style of living, where everything slows down just a notch or two from the “hurry up” pace of America. To be able to sit on my terrace and view the ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel PS: My autobiography entitled "LIFE IN THE KEY OF RUBINI - A Hollywood Child Prodigy and His Wild Adventures in Crime, Music, Sex, Sinatra and Wonder Woman" is now out and for sale in both Kindle and Softcover editions, so look it up and read a little more and get to know me a lot better!!
Owner purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Owner chose Downtown
When I arrived at my future home, walked through the entrada of the building and looked out and saw the azure blue waters of the Pacific and the incredible view of Banderas Bay right in front of me, I fell in love immediately. Being in the center of this wonderful town, I knew that this was the best location in all of Puerto Vallarta. I couldn't resist it.
What makes this Condo unique
I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted as our building is very quiet, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights just by stepping outside. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach or at the pool, or join in the party that is always going on somewhere in this wonderful old colonial town. The views from my terrazas are unsurpassed, I can see the tourists strolling on the Malecon and I can also look out to the Pacific and see whales, dolphins, and even the oyster divers who like to work directly in front of home here.

Stunning view, condo guards and office manage very helpful!
Wow. Location & amenities
This condo has everything you need for an amazing stay. The location on the Malecon gives the option to be part of the action without being in the action. But if you want to participate, it is a step out the door! We loved the balcony! We ate in alot & used the 6 burner gas stove and oven - we even had guests over for an evening with wine & supper, sitting watching the sun set & people on the Malecon. Lots of dishes and equipped for cooking. The roof top pool is very nice but the only downside is it closes so early.
Security at the front gate are wonderful & a big thank you to them as well for the late night entry & putting up with our antics. They were great & always had a laugh & a smile for us!
Awesome. Wonderful. We really didn't want to leave.
I want to thank our guests for such a glowing review. One of the main reasons we bought this condo was for the location and the 180 degree views of the whole Bay Of Banderas which they mention. As a side note, we are the only 2 condos in the building that have gas stoves for cooking. Most homes in Puerto Vallarta only have electric stoves but we wanted the convenience of gas so we put it in when we bought our homes there.
We are always here for you if you have any questions.

Great location. Amazing views. Slight problem upon arrival but the owner was very accommodating . We would stay there again!
I'm so happy that our guests would like to return. Thats the best review I could have, one where they say that they would like to return sometime.
These particular guests arrived at a moment when the guards were not immediately available so they had to wait outside for a short while for the guards to return, but that's life, if there is something that can go wrong, it probably will. But we got them into the condo within 15 minutes after they arrived, so it wasn't too bad.
I'm always around if you want to chat with me, and I welcome all calls and emails.

Our absolute favorite in PV, period.
Total perfection for us. Love the location, the condo is absolutely delightful. Extremely clean and tidy, yet ''homey''. We may be a bit biased as we have stayed there many times, then again there are myriad reasons why we return to Home of the Dolphins every time we go down there. The property is located on a section of the malecon that is the evening promenade for the locals. We enjoy the ''local flavor'' of this virtually daily ritual. Some have said it can get a bit noisey and I suppose that is true on occassion. This is why we always travel with earplugs. We even use them at home sometimes......we live in an extremely quiet place on a river in Montana........until 500 geese loudly announce their arrival at 1:30AM----noise happens at a lot of places!!! We find the malecon ''noise'' quite delightful as it consists of a lot of families with their kids and pets having a great time. It's a happy type of commotion. The sea crashing against the seawall drowns out a lot of the people racket.....LOL
The kitchen with its countertops of huge chunks of marble (granite), heck, I don't know, is a delight to use if one is so enclined. The area is full of super restaurants so cooking at home is not at the top of our list!!
We learned a new trick we've used on our last few visits. We get around by taxi but found that can be a roll of the dice. We found a driver we liked, he speaks English well and his assigned area is around the condo, in this case sitio 1. He seems to know every inch of the area. I now call his cell directly whenever I want to go someplace, near or far, and it's like having a personal driver. As I am a big guy I found his new but compact Toyota Rav type SUV much more comfy than an older small import sedan. Also, it handles the cobblestone roads in the area as well as possible......they call it a Mexican massage. I tend to tip well as in this case I find some of their fixed fees quite low---and it is definitely appreciated. 322-181-4304 is his number if you wnat to give it a try, his name is Jesus (hay-sus).
Michel, the owner of Home of the Dolphins as well as the penthouse above it is absolutely a dream to work with, helpful in every way. I highly recommend this property for a delightful PV vacation. In fact, I am in the process of booking it again. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!
Beautiful condo, best ocean views, old town charm
Our recent week at Home of the Dolphins was divine! The best ocean views with a beautiful sunset every day. Our first time to PV so we wanted to be in the center of the action, and this condo is. We walked to great restaurants and entertainment shows every day, never needed a taxi. The full-sized kitchen allowed us to do breakfast on site. The building has excellent security, though it doesn't feel like it's needed. The condo is well-maintained, and the owner is very responsive. We are booking again for next year!
nice place. great pool area and close to everything.
PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES: For those of you who feel like relaxing and stretching a bit, we have a a fine, certified Hatha Yoga Teacher that is available in the privacy of the condo. Just give her a call 24 hrs. in advance and she will sooth your body and mind.
