Rentals in Puerto Vallarta

I’m often asked about rentals. I’d love to say I am able to help but a mentor said to me when I first arrived to PV to focus on one or the other (Sales or Rentals) and be really good at one instead of average at both. I chose SALES, so I can't help you with rentals...

BUT, I have put this page together to give you the best advice I know on finding a PV rental. I hope it provides some value to you.

One thing to note, When you’re looking to buy a property, choose one agent and work with them - they have access to all the same listings. But when looking for a rental, sometimes it’s better to have a few agents looking for you.

You may find rental agents are not as responsive as Sales agents. So you may have to keep following up with them to get a response.

Remember High Season (November to March) books up quickly. To get good options, book early. If you can, almost 1 year in advance is ideal. But at least in or before August for high season. I know this is not always possible, but if you can, plan ahead.

Lastly, be aware, if you get to your rental and you love it, the rental manager might say to you "its for sale". Please contact me if you have any interest in buying or to at least talk over this opportunity presented to you. It is often not what you might think... 

1) My first choice for SHORT TERM Rentals is Airbnb and VRBO.

Airbnb and VRBO are the best options for short term rentals in good buildings and good locations. They can sometimes be slightly more expensive because of the fees airbnb charges, but it’s a safe and easy platform to book through. And an easy way to pay for your accomodation. Plus you have the support from Airbnb and VRBO call/help center if something goes wrong. 



Try these websites. They are local vacation rental companies that have many rental listings.

3) Try these Facebook pages. You can put in your requirements (price range, bedrooms/bathrooms, location, ideal amenities etc) and hopefully some rental agents will contact you with some options.

Good luck! I hope you find a fantastic rental and have a wonderful vacation. If you have any interest in buying, contact me for a no obligation chat! I'd love the opportunity to help!
