About the property

4 + 1 OceanView Ensuite Bedrooms, Pool, Full Staff including Cook, 5500 SqFt

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 and additional media room (3 king/1 queen/1 sleeper sofa) are 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. Service of 2 meals per day is included. Our staff will do all grocery shopping for you and for the meal service (the cost of the groceries is extra) Our staff works Monday through Saturday. If you would like them to work Sundays or Holidays, this is available at an additional cost.

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.

a wonderful time in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a bucket list experience for my partner and I. We had always dreamed of staying in one of PV's beautiful villas. We got 6 people together and booked Casa Paraiso for a week. We were not disapointed! Lovely well appointed home with stunning views of old town...

Trini and Rosario took great care of us by making breakfast and lunch, helping us host a small cocktail party and keeping the home spotless each day...

This was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend this villa...

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.
