When a successful luxury home developer decided to build his ultimate beach home, he chose a site in the renowned Conchas Chinas residential area five minutes south of the heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta. Casa Velas—a spectacular beachfront villa—is the extraordinary result. Part of a three-villa gated community on Playa Las Amapas, the Mediterranean-Hacienda architectural fusion is elegantly decorated and appointed with original art work and furnishings. Four ensuite bedrooms with expansive ocean-view decks, generous baths, and large closets grace the upper level. The lower level includes a spacious kitchen and inviting dining and living spaces opening to ample outdoor decks overlooking the infinity-edge lap pool, Palapa-style outdoor bar with barbecue, and the perpetual drama and romance provided by the changing candlelight and motion of the Pacific Ocean.
