Casa Caracol in Sayulita is a unique estate that consists of a 2000-square-foot home that accommodates a maximum of six guests, including children. The pool  and palapa area are great for sun lovers and the shade for siestas under the palapa.  There are ample lounge chairs and couches for everyone.

Casa Caracol
Renowned local architect, Estela Mendoza, completed Casa Caracol in the summer of 1998. Its unique nautilus shell design provides extensive views of the village, ocean and jungle while at the same time offering guests the utmost amount of privacy. Morning sun, midday siestas, afternoon breezes, and night-time events in the village plaza have all been taken into account during the construction phase. The estate is  completely gated for added security. The beautiful Casa Caracol is the perfect setting for your family vacation or a romantic, luxurious getaway for two.

The upstairs bedrooms are accessed  by an outdoor stairway up to three bedrooms.The master suite in the main house is on the second level. Here you will find a king-sized bed for a long comfortable sleep, plus  an ensuite washroom.   Blackout curtains on windows for those who like to sleep in.

The 2nd bedroom has a queen-size bed. Black out draperies. The third bedroom has 2 single beds (bunkbeds).  Black out drapes as well.

Each of the bedrooms and the living & dining room has A/C; in the master bedroom and living area, the A/C is thermostatically controlled with the compressor located on the roof. The upstairs rooms are designed for families and share a spacious bathroom.  There are no bath tubs.

Downstairs, the chef in your group will be delighted with the updated American-style kitchen that offers everything necessary to prepare a feast, including a double oven. There is a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, ample cookware, and dinnerware. We supply purified water and icecubes from the fridge and also there will be a garaphone of purified water available on the counter top in the kitchen.  There is outdoor dining in the back terrace with a gas bbq for the maestro in the group. There is a large table with chairs for 6 people to dine.

The formal dining room opens up to a grand living room with high ceilings, ceiling fans, and comfortable furniture, with a full bath adjacent. Furnished with sofa, armchairs,.  There is a television but there is no cable channels.  There is a fire stick available in the drawer under the tv.

Beautiful Gardens and Great Views
Caracol’s full time gardener maintains the largest private garden in Sayulita.  The pool and palapa area has lounge chairs and comfy furniture under the palapa, a great spot for a siesta or evening drinks. In the summer rainy season, it's a great spot to watch the thunderstorms.  Guests can view 10-15 miles in either direction, including the spectacular Pacific Ocean crashing against the cliffs of San Francisco (San Pancho) to the north.  The casa has Sayulita Wifi and it is great for those who must stay connected.

Casa Caracol strives to attract those who want to come and enjoy Sayulita and have a relaxing quality vacation.  This is not a party house, absolutely no parties allowed.  Please no smoking in the house or at the pool.  

Accommodations for Young Children
For those with small children, the main house offers a gated grassy yard, and the pool is surrounded by secure wrought-iron railings. We do not suggest children going off on their own to walk the many pathways.  If children are using the pool, the must be attended by an adult.

I wish we could give more stars.
We are absolutely delighted with our stay at Casa Caracol. Jo-Ann is wonderful to deal with and everything was as described or better. Great home that is quiet but close enough to the action of town that you’re not missing anything. We’ll be back hopefully in the next 6 months. We highly recommend.

An amazing property with gorgeous views and a really helpful host
A group of 6 just had an incredible week at Casa Caracol. This was the perfect villa for us: amazing views, a beautiful property, comfortable accommodations, a great location, and a really helpful host.

Jo-Ann was incredibly responsive to everything and we felt taken care of all the time. The villa is super comfortable and we spent a ton of time in the pool and the gazebo. The walk up and down the hill creates a nice buffer between the villa and the town. The walk is definitely some brisk exercise, but anyone in decent shape will be just fine.

The town is noisy at night, as the sounds of distant parties will still make their way up the hill. If you close the windows, it muffles most of the noise. I did have to use earplugs one night, but overall, it really wasn't a big deal.

We had a blast in Sayulita and would definitely stay here again!

We had an amazing week at Caracol! It is is exactly as advertised, and is just far enough out of town to escape the noise, but less than a 5-minute walk down to the center of everything. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook our meals. Jo-Ann was very responsive to questions and requests, and the staff on-site were so helpful when we needed anything. We spent a lot of time enjoying the view, and at the pool, and are already looking forward to our return.

The place looks just like the photos, beautiful garden, pool and palapa... close to plaza, but still fairly quite and away from the town pleasures. Joann is a great communicator, as are her support people. Stairs for the plaza are tuff 89 steps, if u have bad knees u should consider a golf cart... that said u are close to town as u can get and still have views and some quiet.

Such a Gem
Casa Caracol is truly a paradise. I haven’t stayed at many vacation rentals where the place itself exceeds my expectations based off of the pictures on the listing. The property is incredibly beautiful and romantic. The view makes you feel as if you are on a cloud overlooking the entire town of Sayulita. The pool common space was just as amazing, and often wasn’t occupied, giving you that sense of total privacy and relaxation. The home itself was cozy and clean, and all the employees on the property were friendly and helpful. The host was also incredible. Jo-Ann helped us out beyond what is expected of a host, and was happy to assist with any of our needs or questions

Can't wait to come back!
Jo-Ann is a wonderful host with a beautiful home. The property is gorgeous and the view is breathtaking. We enjoyed the pool and cabana area and had lovely breakfasts on our patio. The location is an easy (uphill) walk from town. Lucky, the resident lab, was the best welcome every time we returned. Lucky, we’ll be back soon!

Beautiful place with a fantastic view and very private. Perfect location, close to town but far enough away to be peaceful & quiet. I would highly recommend it.
