Property #1470: Description
Welcome to Casa Carole Puerto Vallarta. It's a warm and friendly luxury 5-bedroom private vacation villa rental that we built right on the beach in Puerto Vallarta’s exclusive Conchas Chinas residential area. We’re just 5 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, below the main coast road. Our clients tell us, “It’s the best value on the beach in Puerto Vallarta.” We have vacation rental rates for either 4 or 5 bedrooms depending on the size of your party. This vacation villa’s 6,500 square feet, on four levels, cascades down the hillside between the coast road and the beach below. Each bedroom is on a different level for maximum privacy and offers views of the ocean and the surrounding tropical forests from its spacious balcony. Casa Carole Puerto Vallarta features a large, heated infinity pool and an extensive 1,500 square foot Pool Deck. You will enjoy direct access to a secluded sandy beach, with great snorkeling among the volcanic rocks in front of the vacation villa. Casa Carole Puerto Vallarta is a fully staffed classical Mexican hacienda-style vacation villa rental with large windows and doors open to the sea breezes.
Casa Carole is a classical Mexican Colonial villa right on the beach, just 5 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta. The villa’s 6,500 square feet, on four levels, cascade down the hillside between the coast road and the beach below.

The Carretara Entrance
The entrance to Casa Carole is right off of the coastal road, just 5 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta in the exclusive Conchas Chinas residential area. Because the villa cascades down the hillside to the beach and sea below, all you see from the road are the towers with red tiled roofs. These towers are circular staircases that take you down through the villa. Each room is on a different level for maximum privacy. On the carraterra there is ample well-lit parking and a taxi stand just 150 feet from the front door, plus a municipal bus stop a few yards further on. You won’t need a rental car at Casa Carole.
