Villa Karuna is a two story 3000 sq ft. romanitc beautiful home and has been custom handcrafted throughout. Attention to detail is evident in the marble, onyx 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 amazing bird watching opportunity. This spacious well-appointed kitchen is designed for your entertaining pleasure. Downstairs there is an open floor plan with a living room, a dining room and a handcrafted parota bar that seats 6 while it looks out onto the deck, the pool, the jungle and the ocean. Upstairs there are 2 master suites. Each suite includes a king-sized bed, glorious bathroom and private deck. The master bath features a two person custom onyz/granite hot tub for your romantic and relaxing pleasures. Additionally, between the two suites, is a large deck affording plenty of room to read, practice yoga, enjoy a sunset margarita/tea or simply enjoy the view. 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. Karuna feels like a private sanctuary.. a place to relax.

Our Sunrise Casita is a secluded ridgetop romantic hideaway and is a 700 sq ft. bungalow style home. It also features a king size bed, outstanding 360 degree views, has a full kitchen, a large bathroom, is air-conditioned and sits on top of the world. It is perfect for 2 people, is completely private from the main house and it can be used to house additional members of your family/party.

Our beautiful 2-bedroom home, VIlla Karuna, plus our Sunrise casita is located 1 mile south of Sayulita's town plaza. It is near enough to walk ~ 15-20 minutes, drive or hop a taxi into town and back for all the great food, shopping and nightlife, but far enough to be away from all the hustle and bustle and party noise. It's perfect for your relaxing, private and peaceful vacation opportunity.

Jungle Paradise!
We just returned from a week long stay at this incredible property! We were in Sayulita for a family wedding and wanted to all stay together. The main house is nothing short of incredible, with so many beautiful touches from the statues, artwork and top notch appliances, dishes etc.

And the casita was large, beautiful, private and also beautifully appointed . In addition to how beautiful this property is, our experience with the owner and the property manager was very professional. We appreciated enjoying the town but coming
back to this peaceful and comfortable house in the jungle!!!

Terrific vacation experience!
Our family of five spent an awesome 8 days in Villa Karuna. It is a fantastic property, beautifully designed, built, and decorated. The pictures and description of the property are accurate - it is easily the nicest vacation rental we have stayed in. At first I thought we were going to be a bit too far from town but it turned out to be just perfect! The location is very private and quiet compared to the being right in Sayulita. The jungle is beautiful and the walk down to the very private beach is super easy. I would suggest that a car or golf cart would be a good idea as it is a bit far to comfortably walk to town. The Villa is really well laid out for 4 or 5 people and the deck and pool areas are really great for enjoying the outdoors. We enjoyed every minute in this beautiful home and would have no hesitation in recommending it!

We have been to Sayulita several times with our daughters but Villa Karuna was by far the best place we have stayed. A gorgeous property, clean, safe and private, with exquisite attention to detail and good basic amenities. Perfect distance from town and beach; out of the fray yet easy access to anything one might need. We feel so lucky to have found such a special home to vacation in!

Just returned a few days ago from the amazing Sayulita. This town is the best kept secret.. and I hope it stays that way.. We stayed for a week in the beautiful villa karuna. It is just a short 5 minutes away from town and the main beach. You are literally on top of the world in the middle of lush jungle. The property is amazing and very well kept. The pictures are just as it is. Very clean and luxurious. I hope to return again and again to this amazing villa. We felt very safe and taken care of. 8 days went by way to fast.. next time we will spend more time!! Stay Here and you won't be dissapointed:)

Escape to paradise!
Villa Karuna is set in the jungle 5 minutes away from downtown Sayulita. The house was not only beautiful but also spot on clean. The grounds were also gorgeous and the caretakers do a great job of keeping everything tidy. We had our 2yr old. grandson with us so we ate quite a few meals in the house and the kitchen was stocked as well if not better than my home kitchen. Waking up every morning to the views of the jungle and the ocean were simply amazing. Don't forget to bring good binoculars to watch the whales frolic in the ocean. We hiked down to the beach once and then decided it was easier to hang on the Sayulita beach or Los Muertos beachbe missed). Would recommend a car or golf cart rental just to go between the village and the villa.
The owners were so easy to work with and flexible which in the end helped us out a good bit. This property is great for a family or 2-3 couples and anyone in need of a true retreat from the ordinary.

Magnificent property: spacious, tastefully decorated, lovely infinity pool in a beautiful garden setting.
Our family of 4, all adults, enjoyed a fantastic week at Villa Karuna in July 2013. The setting is magnificent: spacious, tastefully decorated, lovely infinity pool in a beautiful garden setting. The property manager was extremely attentive and made sure everything was wonderful.
We hope to return soon!

A private and spiritual paradise
We stayed at Villa Karuna for a wonderful and spiritually healing 10 days. Because we were traveling outside the U.S. with small children for the first time, I was very anxious about what to expect. My fears and worries melted away as we entered this special, enchanted property. The house is absolutely stunning, filled with artwork, sculptures of goddesses, and luxurious amenities. The landscaping is beautifully and lovingly cared for, and cannot disappoint with every tropical flower one can imagine. The view from the balcony is breathtaking, and I found it to be a wonderful place to watch the sunset with my husband and relax while the girls slept. We spent a good deal of time in the pool, and appreciated the fact that it has a shallow level for kids. Even while being very tucked away in the safe embrace of the jungle, town was only a hop skip and jump away. Town was low key and friendly, with a safe and fun beach for the kids within walking distance. The girls were so sad to leave their new "Mexico home" but we assured them we would return again and again. I have to say I am a very anxious being (even more so since kids) but I felt nothing but positive benevolent energy flowing there. I left feeling empowered to trust more that everything will be alright as if mother ocean was whispering that to me.

Hidden Paradise
I stayed 5 days at Villa Karuna with my wife and her family from Mexico. We rented both the Villa and the Casita and found them both to be well decorated, clean and tidy. The property is located just out of town but close enough to walk to the beach or shops. We enjoyed everything about our stay from the amazing views, the lush gardens all the way to the lovely care taker Ernesto. Although I had wished our stay was longer it was enough to become totally relaxed and tune into the strong spirit of the house and it's surroundings.

Thanks for having us, we would love to return some day!

Easily the NICEST place I have ever Stayed
My Boyfriend and I have stayed at Villa Karuna many times and we just keep coming back! The location is amazing you are surrounded by jungle and amazing landscaping. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. The sunsets every night are extraordinary. It is close to town and easily walkable, but far enough away to remove yourself from the noise and tourists of town. There are amazing details in everything about the house, from the wood counter, to the beautiful counter tops, gorgeous landscaping, bathrooms, pool, and house decor. Everything about this house is gorgeous and wonderful. We love coming to stay at Villa Karuna.
