This exceptional two-bedroom, three-bathroom, three-story home lends itself perfectly as a private resort retreat for one, or two couples. Newly renovated Chef's kitchen. Casa Caracol itself is built into the hillside of solid stone and boasts 270 degree views of the mountains, the hillside, the town of Vallarta, the bird sanctuary, the river and then of course the ever extraordinary view of Banderas Bay.
This is one of the most beautiful private homes in Puerto Vallarta. It has been recently painstakingly restored to its original grandeur, originally built in 1957 in a unique sophisticated European style, with ocean blue tile floors and seven balconies in the main living space that add to the appeal of the open air tropical breezes and endlessly breathtaking views.
Imagine, if you will, walking along the lush ravine of the Rio Cuale on ancient cobblestone streets in the oldest historic district of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Literally stepping back in time, Casa Caracol evokes the ghosts of old Hollywood glamour. Casa Caracol is an extremely beautiful historically prominent, architecturally significant Casa in Gringo Gulch, one of the private homes built in the area by legendary Mexican architect Freddy Ramirez, four houses (Casa's) away from the famed house of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
