It's 6,500 square feet, on four levels, cascade down the hillside between the coast road and the ocean below.

Why John Hethrington Co-Owner (with my wife Carol) of Casa Carole chose Lower Conchas Chinas
After visiting friends in 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 support of a professional local manager and a wonderful staff in Vallarta, Carol and John are “hands-on” owners, overseeing all aspects of 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 of the classical character and charm of old Mexico.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Carole was designed as a rebtal property with each bedroom equiped with a bath en suite and balcony with ocean views. Our staff makes Casa Carole a wonderful family home for our guests. We host many multi-generational groups and special celebrations all year long. Our staff makes them unique and memorable. Just read the reviews. They are all about our staff.

Amazing! From the moment we got there we knew we had chosen the best spot for us!
Our time at Casa Carole was perfect. Each room was charming, private and with beautiful views so there was no opportunity for “jealousy” over who got the best room. Pepe was the consummate house man— attuned to our quirks and preferences, such as a pot of coffee available before breakfast for the coffee heads among us. He searched a couple of days for fresh lobster we asked for one of our delightful feasts. We are all in withdrawal missing the 4pm Margaritas (and more, as we preferred) and appetizers that he served daily with fun and good spirit. Mari made delicious food that was so fresh it seemed to nourish and delight at every bite. Carmen made sure our rooms were clean and welcoming without intrusion. I feel very blessed that I was able to share my husband’s 70th birthday with his dear friends and family in this lovely spot. Everyone had a wonderful and memorable time. Thank you to the caring staff and to John and Carol for sharing this oasis with us.
Holidays in Paradise
Our stay was so wonderful, it is hard to know where it begin. The villa is beatutifully situated, near town, on a cliffside overlooking the blue, blue bay. The suites are lovely, each on a separate level with it's own color scheme , bath and balcony. The common areas are spacious and comfortable. What makes Casa Carole something extra special is the staff. Pepe, the house man, Mari the chef and Carmen the housekeeper are exceptional in every way. Mari's meals are gourmet with a wide variety of choices. Pepe is the go-to source for every activity, every request and anything you can think of. I doubt there is something you could want that he cannot arrange. Carmen keeps the house perfectly clean and neat. I wish I could take them all home with me. We are a family of 11 people, including 4 children and 1 teen who only want to know if we can go back again next year. Enough said!!
No words can describe the amazing vacation we had. Pepe was so hospitable and helped accommodate all our excursion requests. We even toasted him and amazing Mari with a fun dance to show how much we loved them. So many amazing memories created at Casa Carole.
An authentic Mexican beachfront villa + an outstanding STAFF = ideal Mexican famly vacation
The setting, right on the sea, with a secluded sandy beach and lush gardens is outstanding. The exposed adobe brick arches, indigenous art and sculptures make Casa Carole a real Mexican villa, not just modern "San Diego South" in Mexico. You can enjoy views of the sea, the bird life and surrounding tropical forests from every room. They are kept impeccably clean.
But it is the outstanding staff at Casa Carole that made our stay fantastic. Mari, the chef prepared to-die-for meals from her gourmet menu. You should beware of added pounds! Pepe, the houseman/concierge is a gentleman with a sparkling personality and great Margarita's and Carmen quietly keeps everything neat, tidy and spotless.
So much to do! We enjoyed bargaining with peddlers on the beach, a full day of bird watching in the mountains, a boat trip to Los Arcos where we swim with tropical fish and a tour of the Botanical gardens with a 2-hour lunch of unique Mexican dishes.
We will be back soon.
Pictures cannot do it justice
Case Carole was perfect. We had ten folks (ages ranging from 28-36) celebrating the big milestone birthday of 30, and I cannot say enough at how great this place is. The house is perfect for a large group, giving every bedroom a unique view and privacy, with easy access to the main gathering areas and pool deck. It was pretty warm outside when we arrived and thought that sleeping may be a challenge, but the air conditioning in each room (individually controlled) actually can get arctic like. Some folks woke up freezing, so adjustments had to be made, but that was a comforting challenge on the first night. Just know that the rooms can get really cold if needed to take the heat off from the sun kissed skin.
Now for Pepe, oh my, he is the greatest in the world. There could not be a more kind and caring host than Pepe. After 7 days, Pepe is like family. He was so helpful, entertaining, and recommended everything just perfectly. As others note, his margaritas were phenomenal. Now for Maria, her food is beyond great! Get the cheese quesadilla (and add chicken some days) for afternoon appetizer. Seriously, the best quesadilla in the world. Her quac is also perfection. All of her food was amazing, and her and Pepe know how to serve up plenty and deliciously.
Housekeeper was super friendly when we saw her, but she was like a ghost because we didn't see her cleaning or picking up much, but the rooms were perfect all the time.
Needless to say, Case Carole is a gem, accompanied by the Pepe and the staff.
Thanks for great memories and we will definitely be returning!
WOW! What a great review. Thank you so much. Carol and I are so glad you have a great time at our home in Vallarta. You certainly picked up on the features that our other guests enjoy. We will pass your enthusiastic comments about Pepe, Mari and Carmen on to them. They really like to please.
The only question is? When are you coming back?

Our stay in "Casa Carole"
We just left our time at Casa Carole and we want to go back! We arrived with a group of 5 couples to celebrate our "65" birthdays...from the moment we arrived to the sad moment we had to come home we were treated "Royally" (we are Canadian ). The food was wonderful, the location was spectacular; however the staff, Pepe and Mari were above and beyond expectations....cannot say enough. If you are looking for a great get away...look no further!
