About Philip Evans
I am originally from England, but now live in Los Angeles. I am Director of Starline Tours of Hollywood - so tourism is my job. I love to travel and see the world.
Philip Evans purchased this condo in 2005
Why Philip Evans chose Cerro
We bought the property in the Old Downtown because we wanted the authentic feel of Puerto Vallarta with the cobbled streets and red tiled roofs. The old Downtown has most of the great art galleries, many of the great restaurants - "Cafe Des Artistes" is just a 5 minute walk from the condo. The Malecon (the seafront promenade) is here - just 8 minutes walk from the condo, where you can stroll along in the evening and watch the world go by. The buildings in the area all have an authentic Mexican feel, rather than the modern sterile blocks that are being built in Nuevo Vallarta and some other parts of the city - which just feel like Hiltons anywhere in the world. In this part of town, we feel like we are in another culture - it feels very mediterranean - Portugal, Spain or Italy. We love the fact that here the rainforest meets the sea. The sunsets are spectacular. Overall, there is always lots to do in this part of town - it is a truly cosmopolitan city with something for everyone.
What makes this condo unique
The condo building only has 6 condos, so it feels more like a large Spanish house divided up, rather than a condo building. Often we are the only people by the pool. We love having an onsite caretaker who looks after any problems we might have while staying in Puerto Vallarta. The condo itself is about 5 blocks back from the Malecon, up the hill so we get views out over the bay from our Living Room and Bedroom. There is also a breeze that is constantly coming through the condo - so keeping things cool - something that does not happen lower down by the water. The condo has Spanish tile floors and textured walls - so you really feel you are in Mexico. Since we are back from the Malecon, the area is quieter, and since we are on a dead-end street, there are no cars just passing by. We recently did a major remodel which included totally gutting and updating both of the bathrooms, buying new furniture and beds, purchasing new kitchen appliances and washer & drier. Since we bought this place primarily for ourselves, we like to keep the place looking as good as possible so we can just relax and have fun when we are there.
