Sayulita's Best Kept Secret.
Villa Karuna is a two story 3000 sq ft. romantic beautiful home and has been custom handcrafted throughout. Attention to detail is evident in the marble, onyx, granite and tile work in the kitchen and the bathrooms, as well as in the artwork, the statues and surrounding beautiful gardens. Located in one of the last remaining tropical jungles by the sea in Mexico, Villa Karuna, sits high on a jungle ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The beautiful, expansive view includes magnificent sunsets over the sea as well as an ongoing bird watching opportunity.
Villa Karuna was designed to increase your connection with nature by bringing the outside inside. The entire ocean side of the house uses bi-fold local wood framed glass doors as walls so you can enjoy the open air or close them and still see the magnificent view of the ocean and sunsets. Although the gentle breeze keeps the rooms cool, air conditioning is available in each of the suites.

I would give it 10 stars if I could
This property was off the beaten path enough to feel like a private luxury vacation but close enough to town for all the modern conveniences. View was breathtaking. House was perfectly positioned on the bluff with 180 degree open air view. We hired a private chef for the week and really could not imagine a more relaxing vacation.
Thank you for recognizing Karuna for the true paradise that it is. It has been a wonderful creative journey designing and building our tropical dream retreat.

Best home we’ve ever stayed in! Perfect!
This property is amazing. The view is incredible. The home is absolutely 5 star, right down to the woodwork, lighting, windows, kitchen, bathrooms, artwork etc etc etc. Waking up to the ocean crashing and jungle singing was heavenly. We will be back!
Perfect Family Vacation
We had a 3 generation family escape at Casa Caruna. It was our first time in the area. The home, the view, the fresh breezes and the lush landscaping, all were a dream. We enjoyed the challenge of the walk into town and down to the beach, the craziness of town Easter week, and the calm and peace we always got to return to. The hope is serene and comfortable, the owners easy to communicate with, and it was everything we could have hoped for.
This property is paradise.
The gorgeous ocean view and cool breeze makes your body relax quickly and every aspect of this house contributes to a stress free vacation! We loved the jungle hike to the beach and hanging out at the pool. 2 gorgeous master suites make this house perfect for 2 couples.
Beautiful getaway in the jungle with spectacular Ocean views
Honestly, we were a bit worried about the critters that would be running around, but they really weren't too much of a bother. The tropical jungle walk to the semi-private beach was incredible, with overarching green bamboo, red wood trees, and wild flowers everywhere. We often saw whales in the ocean and the beach is incredibly quiet. It was a relaxing, tranquil vacation... We rented an SUV for the week, which I highly recommend. We were able to head out for several adventures- visiting Punta de Mita, shopping at the marina in Vallarta and even hitting the beaches/malecon in PV one day. The kitchen has a gas stove and all the cookware. I love cooking, so it was actually a lot of fun for a group of 4. There are only 2 beds and 2 bedrooms in the main house, but the owners were able to accommodate us with an extra mattress. The property manager was friendly and helpful.
You should note that parking is not the greatest in Sayulita, but you can walk or take a cab. The nightlife in town is incredible. The pool water was a bit cold, but as the days got sunnier, it became more tolerable.
You are not allowed to flush toilet paper in the bathroom, which will take some getting used to. Makes for a lot of laughs though and lots of areas to lounge throughout the day. Huge patios, with French doors on every ocean facing wall. Rustic contemporary was the feel, which is the best style in my opinion...
Maids come by mid week for a clean and they do provide shower towels, beach towels and simple amenities like hand soap. There were paper towels in the kitchen, spices, oils, ice in the freezer, gallons of bottled water for drinking, and an unbelievable selection of teas.
It was amazing. The property would actually make for a great retreat vacation or maybe even a romantic honeymoon. You can arrange a chef if you don't like to cook or even have a massage at the house. We ended up with just the right mix of adventure and relaxation. I would visit again for sure!!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sayulita does get crowded on festival days, which you were there for. We really enjoy being away from all the busy times in town.
Regarding the TP. it is standard practice in all of Sayulita and most all small towns through out Mexico.
Villa Karuna is for me the epitome of paradise. The sacred feminine imagery and energy throughout are very healing. Yes, the view is spectacular, but it was the soft curves, the artwork, and the attention to beauty in every room that was truly inspiring and deeply appreciated. Quinn and Leslie’s heartful presence was palpable.
The owner, Quinn was gracious in every way. Our experience was that of "karuna," compassionate and kind throughout.
I highly recommend this property if you want beauty, nature and peace.
Birdwatching: Over 70 varieties of birds in the junge, whale watching, boating, fishing, surfing, paddle boarding.
