"Modern oceanfront luxury for up to 14 people." - Reviewed by Deborah

Four levels cascade Puerto Vallarta’s south shore coastline in this understated modern villa with private infinity pool, large poolside terrace and palapa. The perfect choice for large groups of friends or extended families, you can expect luxury at your beck and call here.

Entering the villa on the fourth floor, you will notice how the property is constructed around a dramatic interior courtyard graced with lush tropical plants and shrubs. Most of the bedrooms are on the upper floors. You descend in the elevator or by foot to find a bright and airy living area that opens with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors to a large infinity pool and terrace.

The views from some of the suites are pretty impressive as you can see the breath-taking curvature of Banderas Bay, though the sunsets from the living areas or from the pool take the prize. Having lunch or dinner beneath the oceanfront palapa is also a treat.

Design-wise, the villa is very modern with subtle Mexican nuances to remind you that paradise is synonymous with Mexico’s coastline. Handcrafted cabinetry, marble floors and spacious living areas all complement the sleek, clean lines that dominate.

Fully-staffed for your comfort, a cook is on hand to prepare two meals a day upon request. All you need do is relax and enjoy your escape in Puerto Vallarta.

Casa Fortuna is part of a luxury gated community that is close to some of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta and very close to the Los Arcos rock formation that adorns the horizon with its natural beauty. Not only can you enjoy the luxuries and privacy of this delightful villa, but you can also use facilities at the private beach club, spa and gym with access to a lovely sandy beach.

Downtown Puerto Vallarta and the famed Malecón boardwalk is a short taxi ride away, while the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, Puerto Vallarta Zoo and zipline parks can be found nearby.
