Named for the papelillos tree, Casa Papelillos represents luxury travel at its finest, comfortably accommodating up to 20 guests enjoying family travel, honeymoon vacations and corporate retreats.
Secluded within a tropical, gated enclave of luxury homes in Ranchos Estates at Punta Mita, these oceanfront haciendas were designed by renowned architect, Diego Villasenor, whose inspired work on Casa Papelillos resulted in a feature in Architectural Digest.
The main beach villa is a 5-bedroom, 11,300-square-foot masterpiece situated on the beach overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta in the distance. The Master Suite has a king bed and an attached space used as a sitting room or sleeping area for small children.
Spanish for butterfly, Mariposa is a magnificent four-bedroom oceanfront rental that provides 3,000 square feet of living space. The upstairs has two bedrooms with king sized beds. The two main floor suites have two separate rooms-a bedroom and sitting room.
Casa Papelillios has three infinity swimming pools in an aqua courtyard on two levels, an outdoor, covered Dining Pavilion, a spacious Living Room Pavilion and a Beach Pavilion, all of which offer great views of the Bahia de Banderas and the beach. The Media Room features a 72 high-def TV, games and iPod-ready surround sound system, and SIRIUS Radio. (214 w)
