In an enviable location overlooking the Rio Cuale, Centro and the Bay of Banderas at the top of Gringo Gulch, Casa Catalina is an expansive, and refined villa built during the time of Hollywood in Puerto Vallarta.

Supplements: From the upper level expansive views across the jungle valley to the Cuale River, across the Bay, all the way to Los Arcos and Cabo Corrientes frame the entertainment areas which include a magnificent 3-meter long bar, two lounge areas and al fresco dining. The gorgeous chef's kitchen is perfect for dinner parties, featuring top of the line KitchenAid appliances, a large butler's pantry with extra ovens, dishwasher and an ample 150 bottle wine refrigerator. Adding ease to your day, the primary bedroom suite is also on the upper level and features Freddy Romero's famous glass bottle nestled into what is now the primary ensuite. The street level entrance of Casa Catalina offers more examples of signature Freddy Romero's touches in the library and the two large bedrooms with their shared terrace overlooking the lower pool deck and across the city. On the lower level you will find a full second kitchen which serves the pool deck and the movie room, along with two more bedrooms, the laundry and access to the garage and bodega. The pool deck level boosts an oversized heated and cooled saltwater pool with marble tile, palapa, cabana and barbecue area.
