Casa Papelillos

Property Description

5+ Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

A marvel of architectural mastery and natural beauty, Casa Papelillos was lovingly designed and built to integrate the comforts of a home with the rain forest and sea front that surround the home. Located in a gated community of El Paredon where the forest meets the sea, built into and around the lush foliage of the Mexican jungle, with terraces guiding your eye from the trees to the sun-kissed gardens to an infinity pool that seems to crash right into the ocean.  Spend your morning at the private Beach Club watching sailboats cutting across the ocean. Head into the city for lunch along the seawall promenade. Afternoons full of adventure await you with world-class golfing, fishing, diving, or just daydreaming in the Mexican sunshine.

Every amenity has been included at this elegant home.  An airport pick up starts your stay, with your rental car waiting for you at your home. Breakfast is prepared for you daily wherever you may want to enjoy your first cup of coffee!  Your private chef is available to prepare meals throughout the day. A fitness center, media room, gardens and Oceanside pool are all onsite. Your housekeeper, laundress and local host will make you want for nothing.

Fractional Ownership

Elite Destination Homes is looking for two families to share this beautiful home – 50% – 50%, or one family to purchase the entire home – 100% ownership. This unique opportunity allows you to own a unique masterpiece in Puerto Vallarta at a fraction of the cost without any of the headaches of maintaining it. Your investment includes the purchase of your interest along with the ongoing operating expenses for the home. These expenses are shared by all owners and are budgeted annually with assessments billed quarterly.

Owner Use

We offer a flexible calendar – there are no assigned weeks and you may begin reserving stays at your home immediately. Each spring, we have Open Enrollment where all owners choose their days for the following year.  In the rare event that two or more owners request overlapping dates, we make every attempt to work out a compromise.

When you own with Elite, we take care of everything. Our owners have consistently great vacation experiences every time they visit their homes. You’ll develop a close relationship with your Elite Concierge, whose mission is to look after you and your guests and ensure that your stay is a seamless, satisfying experience.

Vacation in paradise

5.0 rating
November 26, 2019

It had been years since we were able to have a family vacation and sharing our time at Villa Valentina is magical. Plenty of things for family fun, snorkeling, excursions to Grace Bay, boat rides to Iguana Island and kayaking.We also loved just chilling by the pool or on the dock. Great spaces for quiet evenings as well as room to enjoy some quiet moments alone. Jake helped us with anything we needed. The villa is breathtaking with sunset views and crystal clear water. We saw sting rays in the morning from the dock and sea turtles while floating in the bay. Our family would definitely love to return.

When we built our dream home in the Turks and Caicos, our plan was to live there much of the year and only rent it for a few “peak” weeks to help defray some of the expenses. We would up retiring to California instead to be closer to our grandson, and needed to find a way to rent our home more often without having to invest too much time and trouble in the process. Elite was the answer! They have have helped us to achieve a positive cash flow, with very little effort on our part, which allows us to spend as much time with our grandson as we please! Their staff is professional and courteous. They have a strong marketing program for attracting the types of guests we want to have in our home, and for taking care of all of the guests needs once they have a confirmed booking. I briefly tried to do the marketing and booking on my own, and I am so glad I found Elite to do it instead. They are real pros!

As an owner myself of rental condos in South Beach, Miami, I know how imperative it is to be set up to offer 5 star experiences for your guests. Hacienda Tranquila hits that mark across the board in every category! The location could not be more perfect, the views are breathtaking, you have to pinch yourself to remind you it’s real. Beds that assure you of a great nights rest, a kitchen with everything you need to cook from gourmet to on-the-go. Great linens in the bedrooms & bathrooms, and premium soap products for hair and body are much appreciated little touches. Even though this resort location offers you everything under the sun, you almost find it difficult prying yourself from this amazing condo to go explore the pools, tanning decks & beaches that surround you!

We have stayed in Cabo multiple times with Elite and they have been nothing but professional in every regard. Their Cabo concierge, Paul, is amazing at stocking the villa with groceries and making our reservations for restaurants and transfers. We’re spoiled by their service and properties and see no reason to try others as the bar has been set very high. We can’t wait to visit again.
