Villa en Paraiso is a beautiful hillside villa overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The villa is just 300 feet from the ocean in the charming fishing village of San Pancho. San Pancho is a friendly village about 35 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport.
Villa en Paraiso is over 4000 square feet of classic Mexican architecture. Upstairs there are three generous, air-conditioned, bedroom suites with private baths. Two bedrooms have balconies with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, dining room, and a spacious living area with entertainment center including satellite TV, CD/DVD player, phone/fax, and high speed internet connection. All rooms are air-conditioned.
The living area opens to a wrap around covered terrace overlooking the pool area and ocean. From there, step down to the pool area with a large 12 foot by 24 foot pool with jacuzzi. A custom gas grill complete with mini fridge is a great place for grilling the local seafood. In the evenings, watch the sun slowly sink into the Pacific Ocean.
For extra privacy, the air-conditioned casita has it's own entrance from the outside as well as the pool area. The casita has one large bedroom with private bath, a well equipped kitchen, dining/living area, and terrace with wonderful ocean views.

Children are welcome and it is a wonderful place for unforgettable family vacations, get-aways for couples, or corporate retreat. Discounts are available for stays of more than 7 nights.
After visiting the Puerto Vallarta area for many years, we discovered the fantastic little village of San Pancho with it's wonderful cultural heritage, great food and shops and friendly people. Although seemingly daunting, we decided to build our own home to perfectly meet the needs of our family. It is a wonderful home to enjoy the company of family and friends and escape the cold winters of our permanent home in Upstate NY.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa en Paraiso! The pool was so nice and the grandchildren loved it. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well appointed and the view was to die for. All the people who serviced the house for management, cleaning and gardening were very gracious.
This rental house is good for a family as there are air mattresses and pack and plays for little ones. Ad says it sleeps 10-12, just be aware that there are only 3 nice bedrooms in the main house and one in the casita which costs extra. So if you are a party of couples, it is suitable for 3or 4 couples.
The view from the house is great, lots of space to entertain. Staff are very good.
No question, you need a car to function as a group for shopping etc.
Kitchen well appointed, mixer broken but blender worked well. San Pancho is a delightful town and has everything you will need. Close to other wonderful beaches as the surf in San Pancho can be a little strong for young kids.
The house is lovely and comfortable. However, if you have mobility issues, this isn't the house for you. I was traveling with a group of senior citizens who have assorted health issues. Walking and climbing stairs is difficult for them. To get into the house, you have a very steep cobblestone driveway to walk, then stairs to climb, about 2 floors worth, just to get to the living quarters. Due to the difficulty of getting in and out of the house, the group didn't do very much sightseeing.
We didn't have a car. This house is about a 20 minute walk into downtown San Pancho. Taxi is available, but it's not always prompt. Although the view from the house is marvelous, I felt isolated.
I couldnt disagree more with the other 2 reviews. We had a great time and stayed in the perfect place. You have done a fabulous job of design, décor and landscaping and the view is spectacular. We all loved every minute. Hope we can do it again soon.
We had an okay stay there. It was not very well-appointed given the price. For instance, the jacuzzi is freezing cold. Lots of little things were not in great shape. For half the price, I'd be delighted to stay there.
Be aware that pool and spa are not heated. Water in showers was tepid at best. Plumbing needed repair on three occasions during 10 day stay. Walk to beach is steep and treacherous for older visitors. Staff was courteous and helpful. While there, located elegant equivalent home on the beach for half the cost. San Pancho is delightful to visit.
