Enter the world of Casa Dos Cisnes – and experience 10,000 square feet of unparalleled luxury living. This distinguished private residence is without equal in Puerto Vallarta and easily ranks among the finest homes in Mexico. Located within the exclusive Conchas Chinas neighborhood, the villa is just 5 minutes from the Romantic Zone of Old Town Puerto Vallarta. Quiet, gated and extremely secure, Casa Dos Cisnes provides the perfect backdrop for the vacation of a lifetime.

Within the beautiful colonial style architecture lies every modern amenity imaginable. The home includes five bedrooms, five full and two half baths, interior courtyard, multiple terraces, infinity pool and elegant public and private spaces. Sweeping vistas of the Bay of Banderas are showcased from every level.

The warm and welcoming full-time staff of three – including a 5-star gourmet chef, maid and houseman – work seven days a week to ensure your every comfort is attended to. A full-service concierge also personally coordinates with you to make arrangements prior to your trip and ensure no detail of your stay is overlooked.

A Gourmet Dream Come True

Chef Israel will prepare three exquisite meals per day, seven days per week. Guests may select from the extensive menus available, create custom menus or choose to be surprised and delighted by the chef’s creations based on the day’s market bounty. Although many outstanding restaurants are just minutes away, most guests prefer to bask in the luxury of the villa and enjoy cuisine that is equal to Puerto Vallarta’s most distinguished establishments.

For guests with an interest in the cuisine of Mexico, Chef Israel is happy to guide shopping trips to local markets where he selects the finest ingredients for his dishes. Cooking classes, demonstrations and wine and food pairings are all available to Casa Dos Cisnes’ guests upon request.

Seamless Indoor and Outdoor Living

Built around a central courtyard, and encompassing four levels, Casa Dos Cisnes boasts thirteen rooms, including five unique and beautiful bedrooms.

The master retreat has its own level, with en suite bathroom with rain shower and Jacuzzi bath, private terrace with gas fireplace, and retreat room with Bose home theatre and 47” TV. Four other bedrooms on two levels include three king bedrooms and one with two queen-sized beds. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and feature ceiling fans.

The home also features an elegant dining room which accommodates stylish service for twelve, a magnificent living room with fireplace, a terrace sitting and dining area, an informal library, an exercise room and a large media/entertainment room.

The casa’s thoughtful design not only guarantees breathtaking views from every room, it also ensures an ideal mix of public and private space. Intimate spaces abound within the grandeur of the house that make it ideal for both large and small parties. The open layout and multiple terraces beautifully accommodate wedding parties or business events.

The gracious interior spaces are furnished in the colonial style with one-of-a-kind pieces designed and commissioned by the owners specifically for Casa Dos Cisnes. Wrought iron chandeliers, antique furniture and art, and a dramatic winding staircase are among the many interior design details guests will enjoy.

Brick domes, high-beamed ceilings, and stone columns epitomize the tasteful architectural features found throughout the home. Four fountains and two weeping walls add colonial charm and the soothing sound of water.

The heated infinity pool with cantera stone sunbathing terrace is one of Casa Dos Cisnes’ many highlights. A spectacular cabana adjacent to the infinity pool is the newest addition to the villa, and includes a poolside bar/lounge with refrigerator, ice machine, grill, and 52” TV.

About Casa Dos Cisnes

Traveling and working extensively throughout the world, the owners of Casa Dos Cisnes visited Puerto Vallarta multiple times and fell in love with its climate, cuisine, culture, and charm. Dreaming of owning a traditional Colonial Mexican home, they soon realized that few if any had been built in the area that matched their desire for both ocean views and hacienda style living. Searching for property upon which to build, they immediately knew they had found their future home when they discovered upper Conchas Chinas and its spectacular vistas.

Designing the house over the course of four years, the owners meticulously studied Colonial Mexican architecture and revised the house plans to accommodate the modern needs of their expanded family. Building and furnishing the villa took an additional four years during which time the owners traveled throughout Mexico to obtain pottery, artwork, and artifacts to enhance the authentic, historic ambiance of the home. Designing much of the furniture, lighting, and features of the home, the owners created the villa with the needs of the discriminating traveler in mind, based upon their own travels globally over the course of their business careers.

The owners chose upper Conchas Chinas not only for its stunning views, but also for its proximity to town and the local beaches. Contrary to developments to the north of Puerto Vallarta, Conchas Chinas is but a short distance to the many gourmet restaurants, art galleries, shopping experiences, sporting activities, and entertainment venues offered downtown. At the same time, the neighborhood’s southwestern facing orientation provides it with an exclusive, peaceful ambiance.

Aside from Casa Dos Cisnes, the owners maintain homes in the United States and Western Europe. They hope to welcome you to Casa Dos Cisnes and that you, too, may fall under the spell of the Two Swans!

Why Casa Dos Cisnes chose Lower Conchas Chinas

Minutes from the beach and located in the hills of the Sierra Madre overlooking the Bay of Banderas, Conchas Chinas is the 'Beverly Hills' of Puerto Vallarta and just south of the restaurants, art galleries, shopping, entertainment venues and conveniences of central Puerto Vallarta and the Romantic Zone. With stunning ocean views and oriented towards the iconic 'Los Arcos' rock formation, you are surrounded by the peaceful sights and sounds of tropical birds and jungle foliage while being visually protected from the many high-rise developments that have occurred on the north side of Puerto Vallarta.

What makes this villa unique

There are many houses and condos available for rent in Puerto Vallarta with varying levels of service. No villa other than Casa Dos Cisnes has so exquisitely captured the essence of Mexico's deep cultrual architectural tradition and combined it with first rate service that the experienced luxury traveler requires. Your gourmet chef will elevate your Mexico experience to a new level by immersing you in a culinary journey of Mexico taking you far beyond the servings of guacamole and enchiladas typically encountered at other houses available for rent by preparing fresh-from-the-market, haute-cuisine dishes with traditional Mexican flavors.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to celebrate a bachelorette and had no idea how amazing our stay would be. From the moment we walked in greeted by the smiling staff and breathtaking views, our stay was absolutely perfect.

Israel, Elvira, Lucia and Victor were all wonderful and extremely helpful. They gave us great recommendations for beaches and restaurants and helped us where we needed to be. We were totally pampered. Each meal was better than the last and we will miss the group dinners overlooking Puerto Vallarta. The bar was always well stocked with tequila and beers to keep is well fueled for our bachelorette adventures.

We cannot wait to brag to all our friends about Casa Dos Cisnes and the incredible staff. This was truly a vacation we will never forget. Everything as absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for making my bachelorette party so memorable. I will never forget your kindness and will definitely be back.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

The design and décor of the villa was simply amazing. We have stayed in many vacation homes but this was by far the nicest. The bedrooms were large and well decorated and there was added living space on the second level outside of the bedrooms where the family could relax and watch tv or play games. The views were unbelievable. Not only from main living room, but from all bedrooms and particularly the master bedroom. Wonderful pool and bar area. Kids also enjoyed workout room. The staff did a great job taking care of all of our needs. Our family had a wonderful time in an amazing villa.

Amazing Villa Makes Special Ocassion Even Better!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Dos Cisnes was an amazing Villa in the hills of Conchas Chinas. From the moment the door opened and I was greeted by Brandon, Israel, and Lucia, the charm of the property came alive. The video online really doesn't do justice to how amazing the place is. The staff really help to make the experience. Israel is an amazing cook (he says he's not a chef but his cooking is amazing!) We absolutely loved everything he made - from the chicken enchiladas on our first night to the chile rellenos on another night - which were some of the best any of us had ever had! Israel had great ideas for every meal and could whip up whatever we wanted. Brandon was great and made sure we always had whatever we needed. He was a great coordinator and bartender. We took a trip one day to Yelapa and Brandon arranged the transportation and suggested a boat company that was fantastic. Brandon was fun and always around to help. Lucia was the quiet one because she made sure the house was always clean. She never stops and I don't know how she does it. The pool area was fantastic and we hung out there at some point every day and found it to be the perfect size for our party. There are so many patios, balconies, sitting areas, fountains, rooms, and spaces on the five floors that the perfect space was always available for whatever mood anyone was in. It's a healthy walk to the Zona Romantica - either along the beach or on the street. The walk back isn't bad and makes you really appreciate the pool. Of course, we could have taken an Uber or taxi but it's so nice to walk down (and up) the hill. The only thing that was a little bit of an issue for us was the internet. It would go out from time to time and a few people in my group had to do some work so this made it a little challenging. I know it's being worked on but this would be my caution to anyone needing to get work done that requires internet. Hopefully it will be resolved soon. The Villa is not cheap but you get what you pay for. I will definitely return but in the meantime, I know I will savor the memories of the home forever. Thank you to Israel, Brandon and Lucia. You are the best and the house is AMAZING!

Owner's Response: Hi Gary- We’re so happy you enjoyed yourself and our staff enjoyed having you as guests. Internet service outside of the downtown area has been restricted to DSL on Telmex and the service as you have noted can be unstable depending on service load in the area. We are currently in discussions with Telmex to bring a fiber optic line to the house as we frequently use the house as our international work base and have experienced the same instability you did. We hope that this service will be installed in the next months- so that should you come visit Casa Dos Cisnes again you don't have the same problems!

Unbelievably fabulous! Six stars!

  • 5 of 5

If you think the pictures look great, they hardly tell the story! Unbelievably beautiful house with 5 wonderful bedrooms and 4 full baths. You couldn't find more spectacular and yet comfortable surroundings. But the best part of all is the awesome staff of three. Israel, the cook, dazzled us with meal after meal. We ate in town a couple of times but all agreed it was much more fun and delicious at the Villa. Brandon, butler/bartender waited on us 24/7 and Ilena kept the house clean and spotless. The Villa is only a $6-8 cab ride to town so in a perfect location. We were pleasantly surprised how clean Puerto Vallarta has become. Several had been before but many years before and they have worked hard to upgrade it. It shows! Book this house now - you'll thank me!! PS The chile rellenos for dinner were the favorite!

Fantastic in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and all 8 of us were thrilled with our stay. This really is a magnificent villa and even more grand than the pictures. You are pampered the moment you enter by the friendly staff so eager to make your stay memorable. Israel is a great chef, be sure to request his chile rellenos and soups, but he can prepare anything you request and everything he served was wonderful. Roberto pampered us the entire time and even made a large rose petal heart on the dining table for our celebration dinner! Lucia kept the large villa spotless the whole time with a smile on her face.

The view is beautiful, the beds very comfortable, you will not be disappointed with choosing Casa Dos Cisnes.

Great 50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with sweeping vistas over the bay and extremely quiet( no cruise ship noise,traffic noise, nor plane noise). The staff consisting of chef Israel, butler Roberto, and maid Lucia are friendly, responsive, efficient and attentive making our stay very comfortable. Israel can cook anything you request, not just what's on the sample menu. The food is so good we opted to eat all but a few meals at the house. Angela, the manager, is readily available for any help. The staff will gladly assist you in making reservations for activities, shopping, restaurants,etc. They even let me practice my Spanish with them!

What a truly great place to visit!!

Car: not necessary

Puerto Vallarta is a Mexican paradise that lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. Located on the same latitude as Hawaii, it is located 219 miles from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The downtown area has preserved a taste of old Mexico with its cobblestone streets, cathedrals, and quaint white-washed houses with red terra cotta tiled roofs and the surrounding region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, and an average temperature of 80°F. The landmark for the area is the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe with its unique glass dome. The area offers a cultured grace with some the most talented artists, architects, and chefs in North America. Approximately 120 restaurants and entertainment facilities are available throughout the region---including many of 5 star quality. Art galleries dot the city and include the work of local legend Manuele Lupe.
