Surrounded on three sides by dense foliage, Casa Papelillos is comprised of two luxury homes so magnificent they were showcased in Architectural Digest. Staying in the main hacienda you can hear the surf from the Bay of Banderas gently washing on the beach.
With five bedrooms, the 11,300 square-foot main hacienda is one of the most spacious vacation home rentals at Punta Mita. Guests enjoy convening in its Living Room Pavilion and the Dining Pavilion, both of which overlook the three infinity pools, as well as the bay, and Puerto Vallarta and the Sierra Madre Mountains in the distance.
During your Puerto Vallarta vacation, one of the most breathtaking experiences is to see Casa Papelillos’ lighted courtyard, which is quite unique. As a fiery sunset illuminates the bay, there may not be a more tranquil place than Casa Papelillos when you visit Mexico.
An oasis exuding Mexico luxury, the guest hacienda at Casa Papelillos, is only a short stroll from the main hacienda. Encircled by tropical flora, it is lovely for family members or business colleagues traveling with you on your Mexico vacation. Spanish for butterfly, Mariposa features four interior designer-appointed bedroom suites, each with a full bath and outdoor shower on the lower level bedrooms.
Offering the resort luxury of Punta Mita, the two-story residence was also designed by notable architect of Mexico luxury homes, Diego Villaseñor. Its 3,000-square-feet of living space makes for an exceptionally comfortable stay.
Two outdoor lounging areas atop the roof are ideal for sunbathing and evening stargazing, while the 360-degree view encompasses the Sierra Madre Mountains and across the Bay of Banderas to Puerto Vallarta.
This magnificent oceanfront rental property invites guests to gather in a number of welcoming places, most of which overlook the Bay of Banderas. A grassy lawn adjacent to the beach invites children or grandchildren to run free under the Mexican sun. Guests are invited to watch movies, sporting events or their digital Mexico vacation photos on the 72” plasma screen satellite TV in the spacious Media Room.
Engaging architectural and interior design details found throughout Casa Papelillos give guests staying at this dramatic beach villa a sense of browsing in an art museum. Reflecting pools, Oaxacan pottery, wall art, sculptures, potted flowers, river stone floors—at every turn there is something at this architecturally sublime oceanfront rental that fascinates and invites a moment to pause to enjoy.
