Abundant outdoor spaces, including balconies, terraces, outdoor gardens and a solar heated pool, offer our guests plenty of opportunities for socializing or enjoying a private moment. The villa's indoor and outdoor rooms offer an uninterrupted flow that ensures easy beach living and entertainment opportunities. The owners are plant lovers (including growing wild orchids) and have created a tropical paradise, protected by privacy walls and gates.

The main level ,with it's spacious living room and large dining room that seats 12 and the amazing, fully appointed kitchen, decorated with traditional, hand-painted Mexican tiles, leads to the Grand Terrace where most of the fabulous breakfasts or afternoon cocktails are served.

The upper level has another spacious living area,( also a queen size sleeper sofa) and is a great place to settle in for a bit of TV watching, card playing or just enjoying some privacy from the rest of your group.

Sit back and relax and leave the housekeeping to us - the villa is staffed with a full time housekeeper and maid whose aim it is to make your vacation relaxing, carefree and memorable. Daily breakfast or lunch preparation services are included Monday through Saturday (Cost of food not incl.) Additional chef services available upon request for $75 for up to 10 people. (cost of food is not included) This dinner service has been highly appreciated and raved about by our guests!! Our staff will be happy to do all the shopping for you!

Los Muertos Beach and Blue Chairs is just a short 5-8 minute walk as is the Pier, which is the gateway to many other adventure spots within the Bandera Bay area. A 5-10 min. stroll will lead you to ' The Malacon' , the famous boardwalk, with its many outdoor restaurants, cafes and street food vendors, mimes and artists, many galleries as well as the world-famous cathedral and lively square and all the activities which make Puerto Vallarta such a vibrant and exciting destination.

Casa Paraiso is waiting for you!! A salty Margarita has your name on it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wise choice!

Sparley Atlanta, GA.

Date Submitted: May 30, 2008 Date of Stay: April 2008

We constantly congratulated each other on our good fortune at having stayed at Casa Paraiso! The home far exceeded our expectations and we all agreed that its even more beautiful than the pictures indicated. Each of the bedroom suites has features that makes it special and with so many living spaces and lush garden areas, there were plenty of places to escape (the housemates) and relax. Though it was my first trip to PV, I found it diffcult to tear myself away from the view to go exploring! Again, the pictures do not do it justice. There was a constant breeze that carried the sounds of church bells and Mariachi bands to our doorstep making my PV experience even more enjoyable. The location is ideal for the beach, restaurants and galleries...even one of the canopy tour operators is a short walk away. Vista Grill-one of PV's best restaurants-is just around the corner...don't miss it! Maria was a pleasure to work with and the staff was exceptional. Trini made some fantastic meals and knows how to mix a 'mean' margarita. There is no question that I'll try to return as soon as possible!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

For one whole week we lived in the lap of luxury at Casa Paraiso. It all started with being served fresh Margaritas when we arrived, then the next morning eating a delicious breakfast on the terrace while we enjoyed the view of the bay. When we wanted solitude we could enjoy our own private balcony or find a bench in the gardens. We enjoyed walking to the beach and browsing in the many shops and galleries. We are looking forward to going back for another dream vacation in 2008.

Beautiful Property In One Of The Best Locations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT!!! There were 4 of us traveling together, and all 4 bedrooms were as equally stunning! Carol and Maria (the owner) were very accommodating, and we would definitely come back and stay at this house again!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a paradise-like home. Everything is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Due to its proximity to the beach and shopping areas, we walked almost everywhere. The walk back to the villa is a good workout, but if you are not up to it, taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. We were greeted on our arrival with the best margaritas we have ever tasted. Trini was very attentive to our needs and cooked a great breakfast every morning, which we ate on the terrace looking out at the beautiful view of the ocean. We really enjoyed the pool after days of shopping and sightseeing. I would definitely recommend this property.

Spectacular Views from Every Room!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently spent 6 idyllic days at Casa Paraiso. This beautiful home decorated with traditional Mexican flare, was comfortable and delightful. The two housekeepers, Triny and Rosario served up the most delicious breakfasts every day, and on two occasions we had them prepare a late lunch and early dinner for us. Both meals were beautifully presented - not to mention that they make the best guacamole and margaritas! What further delighted us was the brief walk to town - a trip we made every day. If you plan to walk back from town, the hill is very steep and provides great exercise. In all we enjoyed every moment spent in this beautiful home in the Romantic Zone of Puerta Vallarta.

Beautiful home!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had my bachelorette party here at Casa Paraiso and photos does not do this house any justice. The house is so beautiful in person and is in close range to everything. Each room has it's own sitting area with a terrace. So, if you feel like you want some privacy you can definitely do so. This house is so beautifully designed and decorated. This was the best vacation with awesome friends and family. The view of the bay and mountains from each room of the house are so spectacular. Trini and her staff were so amazing and will take care of all your needs. We had Trini and her staff cook brunch for us and it was delicious. I can't wait to come back to Puerto Vallarta!

Thank you!
