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.

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.

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 Provincial 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 56 years, have three children and two grown grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose South Zone, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
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 in 1980. The villa was designed for them by a local architect in the traditional Mexican Colonial style, but designed as a rental property with each bedroom on a different level for maximum privacy. With the support of our 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.
