South Zone villa description

Casa Carole can be rented either as a four or a five bedroom, private luxury villa to suit the size of your group. (Check VRBO listing #13339 for special 5-bedroom rates.) The villa is located right on the beach in the exclusive Lower Conchas Chinas residential area, one-and-a-half miles (5 minutes) south of downtown Puerto Vallarta. You can walk to town along the beach. It takes about 25 minutes.

Casa Carole was built by the owners in the clasical Colonial Style with exposed adobe brick arches and beamed ceilings. It's 6,500 square feet, on four levels, cascade down the hillside between the coast road and the ocean below. There is direct access to a secluded sandy beach with great snorkeling among the volcanic rocks in front of the villa. The 1,500 sq ft pool deck features a huge (25' x 12'), heated, infinity pool and adjacent Jacuzzi spa, plus a palapa-covered wet bar with refrigerator and gas BBQ.There is an alcove that provides shade in the summer months.

Each of the 5 bedroom suites is located on a different level for maximum privacy and has a bathroom ensuite. Each bedroom has marble floors and a large balcony with magnificent ocean views. There are large windows and doors open to the sea breezes and elegant decor throughout, plus individually controlled mini-split air conditioning in each of the five bedrooms. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms, living room, dining room and in the pool deck alcove. Take a virtual tour of Casa Carole with floor plans and 17 360-degree photos of every major room in the villa by going to our website (see address below).

Our full time staff of four, (that our guests rave about) come six days a week to cater to your every whim. Mari, a great chef, cooks two gourmet meals a day that you have selected from her extensive menu. Our guests say our houseman/concierge Pepe is 'the perfect host'. His margaritas, served on the pool deck at 4:30, are outstanding. He is available to help you with any arrangements you need to make your visit memorable, from fishing trips to fireworks. Carmen our maid, cleans the rooms every day and can do your personal laundry as well. We also have Crispin to keep the pool perfect.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About the owner: Carol and John Hethrington live a rural life in ski and apple country, high on the Niagara Escarpment overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada. John is a retired marketing executive, currently busy with local and Federal politics and his activities as a Master Gardener. Carol is a retired political staffer, and with John, is heavily involved in their community both socially and as a volunteer. John and Carol, married over 53 years, have three children and two grown grandchildren.

              Why the Owner Chose South Zone:
              After visiting friends in Puerto Vallarta in the late ‘70s, and entranced by its colonial charm, together they built Casa Carole right on the sea. The villa was designed for them by a local architect in the traditional Mexican Colonial style. With the support of a professional local manager and a wonderful staff in Vallarta, Carol and John are “hands-on” owners, overseeing all aspects of the ownership and rental of their luxury villa. One of their greatest pleasures is proudly sharing their villa with family, friends and clients. Even with the many upgrades over the years, Casa Carole continues to reflect their appreciation for the classical character and charm of 'Old Mexico'.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Casa Carole was designed as a rental property with each bedroom equipped with a bath en suite and balcony with ocean views. But it is our staff that makes Casa Carole a wonderful family home for our guests. We host many multi-generational groups and special celebrations all year long. It is our staff that will make your visit unique and memorable. Just read the reviews. They are all about our staff.
