Recently selected as one of Puerto Vallarta's 'Boutique Villas', Casa Paraiso is a 5,000 + square foot jewel built in authentic Hacienda/Old Puerto Vallarta style. The gracious decor, art work and special attention to detail will be sure to please you.

Each of the home's 4 ensuite bedrooms (3 king/1 queen)is decorated in elegant, traditional Mexican themes; all enjoying spectacular views from their private balconies of beautiful Old Town and the Bay. 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 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 Ocean Blvd., 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!

Wise choice!

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.

I recently celebrated my birthday at this property. The villa is so beautiful! My friends and I are already talking about when we want to return. The house staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting PV.

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!

A great memory for three generations

  • 5 of 5

Casa Paraiso was the perfect destination for experiencing Puerto Vallarta. It is located within walking distance to the business district and restaurants and the Malecon It seemed very safe and had wonderful views of the city and the bay. Normally we stay in a resort hotel when we travel, but staying at Casa Paraiso gives one a much more personal and private setting in which to enjoy your traveling companions. Maria and Cathie answered all of our questions quickly and honestly before we arrived and followed up while we were there to see if we were satisfied with everything. Trini and Rosario were very pleasant and accommodating. The whole experience was handled efficiently and professionally. The only thing I would advise is to use taxis to return to the house because the hill is quite steep and there are a number of steps up from the street to the front door. We all loved the time we spent there and would highly recommend this property for it's location, ambience and authenticity.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Paraiso is a lovely, relaxing, outstanding five star casa where we have been lucky enough to spend our Puerto Villarta vacations. From the lush foliage that greets us at the main gates to the beautiful pool and then on up to the outstanding views from the terraza overlooking the bay, we are struck by the welcoming elegance of each landing. Every morning, we were graciously served breakfast by Treni and Rosario, the wonderful housekeepers that assisted us in so many ways such as helping making reservations and preparing special meals upon requests. Need I say, how relaxing it is to sit out on our own bedroom patio, reading or just enjoying the views. The short trek to “old town” and the beach is a most fun walk taking in the local culture and colorful shops. We were minutes away from the bus stop and walking distance to many wonderful restaurants. One of our favorite adventures was visiting the Botancal Garden and restaurant. It is delightful. This was our third stay at this wonderful location and home. It is a perfect place for four couples or a family. The owners have made an indelible mark in our memories of Casa Paraiso and Puerto Villarta.

Wonderful family vacation in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the lovely Casa Paraiso. We usually do an all inclusive in PV, but wanted to be closer to town and try something different. The house is just at is appears in the pictures and I can't imagine a more beautiful view of the city and the bay as from the terraces. We had a group of 8 adults but had more than enough room to spread out. We had a dinner and many breakfasts prepared by Trini and Rosaria and the cooking is fantastic. The house is in a great location, though you will be walking up and down hills at all times. There are also 62 steps from the front gate to the house entrance, which is tough with luggage. The young people in our group loved the work out and walked everywhere. I mostly took cabs back up the hill to the house to save energy for other things. It is a quick walk to the beach and to the Zona Romantica's many bars and restaurants. So many options! The pool terrace did not really ever get sun, to the disappoint of our tanners, but it is still pleasant to sit by the pool. We were on the go a lot, but I wish I had spend more time at the house and relaxing on the terraces. Maybe next time.
