You are arriving!
A spectacular boat ride from Puerto Vallarta along the emerald coast of the Bahia de Banderas and suddenly, like magic, the village of Yelapa and a beautiful beach with its palmed roof restaurants appear in front of you. A very special place indeed as you notice that there are no cars, no roads, just donkeys and horses. You disembark at Playa Isabel where Felipe, the caretaker, greets you and helps you with your luggage as he leads you on a 10 minutes walk along the water’s edge and up a hill towards your house. Having past the gate you enter a lush tropical garden of bougainvilleas, hibiscus, palm trees everywhere, tropical fruit trees such as mangoes, grapefruits, mandarins, lemons, bananas… a few more steps and there it is. You have arrived
Casa Coco and Coco Cabana
Nestled on the side of the mountain amidst luxuriant tropical vegetation teaming with wild exotic birds both houses offer panoramic vistas of the Pacific, the mountain, Puerto Vallarta in the distance and the beach.
“Wahoo!”, “This is paradise!”, “Incredible!” or “What a View!” are often the first comments as people reach the terrace, with its lounge chairs, fronting either Casa Coco or Coco Cabana. The views are spectacular and dramatic. At night, as you sip a drink on one of the terraces, you hear the waves below breaking on the shore and, in the distance, the lights of the coast and the city as well as those of frequent cruise ships keep you mesmerized. In season you may even be lucky to see the whales and dolphins play right below. Truly one of the best locations in Yelapa.
Casa Coco and Coco Cabana are designed to balance luxury and openness to nature. The furniture is Mexican in style with much hand carved wood. There are no windows but mahogany louvers for comfort and privacy...
Casa Coco is a rather large renovated house fronted by a sun filled terrace stretching the whole length of the house. Based on a traditional Mexican style, the spacious living/kitchen area is open without shutters. The two spacious bedroom suites with Queen Size beds on the main floor, one of which with its own terrace overlooking the ocean, are separated by a small courtyard with a fountain. Upstairs, you find a cozy sitting/reading area with balconies and a large bedroom area with two single beds and balconies.
Coco Cabana, a round house, is a dramatic mix of modern upscale and traditional Mexican design with vibrant colors and textures. At ground level, a living/kitchen area with balcony dominating over the jungle and the Pacific and a full bathroom. Upstairs, as you awake in your comfortable Queen Size bed, to the greetings of the birds, you are in the huge bedroom suite with two large balconies facing even more jaw-dropping views.
Coco Cabana is ideal for a romantic honeymoon or a celebration of love. Style, tropical, exotic, private yet minutes away from authentic Mexican culture.
Both houses, although quite separate from each other and each quite private, are close enough to be combined which makes it ideal for family reunions or groups of friends who want to be together for a vacation of a lifetime.
Upon request cooking, cleaning, transport and sight-seeing services are available. We highly recommend Yanet, the house cook, who gets rave reviews for her Mexican cooking
We want to emphasize that due to their architectural design and openness to nature neither house is advisable for young children
