Puerto Vallarta Villa Rental Photos and Description

Come the week before Christ,as & save. Enjoy Chef, Houseman Maid & Poolman

Casa Carole can be rented either as a four or a five bedroom, private luxury villa to suit the size of your group. (Check VRBO listing #13339 for special 5-bedroom rates.) The villa is located right on the beach in the exclusive Lower Conchas Chinas residential area, one-and-a-half miles (5 minutes) south of downtown Puerto Vallarta. You can walk to town along the beach. It takes about 25 minutes.

Casa Carole was built by the owners in the clasical Colonial Style with exposed adobe brick arches and beamed ceilings. It's 6,500 square feet, on four levels, cascade down the hillside between the coast road and the ocean below. There is direct access to a secluded sandy beach with great snorkeling among the volcanic rocks in front of the villa. The 1,500 sq ft pool deck features a huge (25' x 12'), heated, infinity pool and adjacent Jacuzzi spa, plus a palapa-covered wet bar with refrigerator and gas BBQ.There is an alcove that provides shade in the summer months.

Each of the 5 bedroom suites is located on a different level for maximum privacy and has a bathroom ensuite. Each bedroom has marble floors and a large balcony with magnificent ocean views. There are large windows and doors open to the sea breezes and elegant decor throughout, plus individually controlled mini-split air conditioning in each of the five bedrooms. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms, living room, dining room and in the pool deck alcove. Take a virtual tour of Casa Carole with floor plans and 17 360-degree photos of every major room in the villa by going to our website (see address below).

Our full time staff of four, (that our guests rave about) come six days a week to cater to your every whim. Mari, a great chef, cooks two gourmet meals a day that you have selected from her extensive menu. Our guests say our houseman/concierge Pepe is 'the perfect host'. His margaritas, served on the pool deck at 4:30, are outstanding. He is available to help you with any arrangements you need to make your visit memorable, from fishing trips to fireworks. Carmen our maid, cleans the rooms every day and can do your personal laundry as well. We also have Crispin to keep the pool perfect.

Visit the Casa Carole website. Use the connection below and have your speakers on to enjoy the Mariachi music. You can call us toll free about special rates and last minute availability. Our guests tell us , 'Casa Carole is the best bargain on the beach in Puerto Vallarta.'

Why John Hethrington chose Puerto Vallarta

After visiting friends in Puerto Vallarta in the late ‘70s, and entranced by its colonial charm, together they built Casa Carole right on the sea. The villa was designed for them by a local architect in the traditional Mexican Colonial style. With the support of a professional local manager and a wonderful staff in Vallarta, Carol and John are “hands-on” owners, overseeing all aspects of the ownership and rental of their luxury villa. One of their greatest pleasures is proudly sharing their villa with family, friends and clients. Even with the many upgrades over the years, Casa Carole continues to reflect their appreciation for the classical character and charm of 'Old Mexico'.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Carole was designed as a rental property with each bedroom equipped with a bath en suite and balcony with ocean views. But it is our staff that makes Casa Carole a wonderful family home for our guests. We host many multi-generational groups and special celebrations all year long. It is our staff that will make your visit unique and memorable.

Just read the reviews. They are all about our staff.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve never eaten & drunk so well (or so much) in our lives. The views and the house are incredible & the staff has been wonderful! Samuel clearly went above and beyond the call of duty arranging for my partner’s 49th birthday.

We hope to be back soon…

Amazing Adventure Once Again!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second trip to this beautiful villa. Last year I went during September and this year during December but it was just as nice. The water is excellent both in the pool and in the ocean below. Walking up and down the beach, snorkeling and hanging out around the pool proved to be such a relaxing time. This place is recommended for basically anyone looking to stay luxuriously in Puerto Vallarta. The cab rides into town are affordable and it's only a few minutes away. But on the way out of town towards El Eden you still feel so removed that it is a private setting anyone would enjoy. I can't wait to go back again next year :-) P.S. - The staff is amazing and so easy to work with.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! The perfect spot for the perfect vacation. We spent the week with great friends that we have travelled with for a number of years. This was the first time we have ever rented a home and it was awesome. I thought we would go out to dinner a few times while we were there and explore the area. It was so wonderful it was hard to leave the casa. Mari was an excellent cook. Pepe delivered drinks by the pool about 4 each day and then left us pitcher of margaritas when he left for the day. Fresh squeezed orange juice started our day along with a perfectly prepared breakfast. Carmen kept the house spotless. The views are spectacular, the pool - perfect, the bedrooms better than I could have wished for. Anything we wanted, Pepe was there to arrange it for us. It was a marvelous vacation!

Above Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We loved this Villa set in the side of a cliff leading down to the sea. We watched the dolphins out in the bay and had lobster for dinner that was caught that morning. The Staff was happy to do anything to make our visit happy. Our bedroom was on the lowest level and the ocean sang us to sleep at night. Maria, the cook, pulled out all the stops in making food that our various diets required. Pepe mailed my post cards, recommended places to see, and helped with some interperative skills we needed. This was truly the best vacation I have ever had!

Amazing First Trip To Mexico Topped Off w/ Beautiful Scenery

  • 5 of 5
This Villa is great! There is so much to do in this area, you could spend weeks. The ocean is a few steps away... there is wildlife everywhere! The setting is beautiful at night when the sun sinks into the ocean. We had an amazing time and partly because of the staff. These guys know what they are doing and they do a great job being attentive to your needs. If you want something, just ask and they'll do whatever necessary to help you out. Bring bug spray and be prepared for an amazing time in the jungle like area which surrounds the villas. Town is only a few minutes away which makes this such a great location. We can't wait to go back!

Everything we hoped for, and more...

  • 5 of 5
I think “WOW” could sum up our week at Casa Carole! After an extensive on-line search for a location to celebrate a milestone birthday, we took a leap of faith on this little piece of heaven in Conchas Chinas, a 20 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride south of old town Puerto Vallarta. It seemed to strike the right balance of location, size, amenities, and price. The website does a great job of profiling this impressive Casa, and the actual experience exceeded our expectations on every front – I can’t imagine having chosen a better locale to celebrate my 50th with friends. From the sunsets, the view from the pool down to the beach and tidal pools, to the comforts provided by the Casa’s excellent team – it was truly a week in paradise.

We learned upon our arrival that there was a new cook, Maria, and she greeted us with a warm smile and followed up with many fantastic meals - she is a treasure! As one of my friends said, none of us experienced Montezuma’s revenge, but we all fell victim to Maria’s revenge…a rounding of the belly and several pounds or more staring back up at us from the scales when we got home! Our initial plan was to spend a few evenings in town – having been their many times – there are a number of favourite restaurants we were going to revisit. But the comfort of great food in this idyllic setting was just too much to leave, and with the exception of the Sunday dinner, we ate in every night.

Carmen obviously had things well in hand – the Casa was kept immaculate, and we never wanted for anything. And then there is Samuel - what can I say – I don’t know where they found him, but any business would be envious of such a fine employee. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt like we were family being welcomed home. I can’t imagine you could find a better ambassador for Casa Carole. It was so obvious that Samuel takes great pride in his work, in the Casa, and in making our stay the best it could possibly be. Friendly, gracious, hospitable, kind, humerous, efficient, genuine…knowing he would be there to greet us, is reason enough to want to return – and we are going to – we just booked another week later this year!

We dealt directly with owners Carol and John – via email and using their toll free line. They made the process work seamlessly and I have no hesitation in recommending. If you are looking for a real “all-inclusive”, vacation experience, tailored to your own group – look no further. You have arrived!

Owner's Response: WOW yourself Ron! We could not have asked for anything better than your comments - thorough, detailed, engaging and personal. We will pass them on to our staff; Samuel, Maria and Carmen. I have checked with them and they remember your group fondly and look forward to having you back again in November. The best endorsement of our villa is, of course, your second booking. I hope we can make it a habit.

Thanks again,

John & Carol...thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house! It was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and staying at Casa Carole made it all that more memorable. The house staff is amazing - they definately made the trip for us! Samuel made the best margaritas and was there to help us with whatever we needed. He has all the right contacts! I would have brought Lola back home with me if I could! I was full after every meal but never complained - so tasty! Carmen kept everything so clean. Thank you to all!! Loved having the banana boat pick us up right on our very own beach and we spent so much time in the pool...oh how I miss it all!
