Casa Carricitos is all about privacy and beauty.  A truly romantic beautiful hand-crafted casa, located on 2.5 acres with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. From anywhere on the property you can watch spectacular sunsets 365 days a year. We can confidently say that this house has the most incredible views on this portion of the coastline. Whales and dolphins are frequently seen from both houses. There are NO neighbors upstairs, downstairs, or beside you. Total privacy, total peace.

Our photos are not shot to deceive in fact guests report the accommodations to be better than expected rather than another disappointing experience.

THE POOL, well, the infinity edge pool is over the top gorgeous, solar heated located on the property for maximum sunning. It is shared by the the main house and casita

MAIN HOUSE: If tropical privacy, peace and romance, and/or spiritual rejuvenation is what you're looking for then Casa Carricitos can be your personal paradise. Charming as Sayulita is, it can be noisy with music and town activities. At Casa Carricitos, nature surrounds you with swaying palms, tropical birds, and butterflys. The sweeping views take in Monkey Mountain, the palapas of Haramara Yoga Retreat Center, Punta Mita (a distant peninsula) and the sand and waves of Carricitos Beach below.

We lovingly call it "stare therapy" as in: sit and just stare. The landscape appears to be constantly changing; the waves, the sounds, the light, the winds in the palms.....or a five minute walk thru the jungle will take you to your own secluded beach.

Located a HALF MILE  from the Plaza Casa Carricitos is surrounded by an ECOLOGICAL PRESERVE that is part of the largest tropical forest in Mexico. The only sounds you hear from the property are the sounds of Nature and waves upon the shore. The beach below the house is secluded enough to allow European style sunbathing, with descretion. When you want to visit town for shopping or dining, you are only a half a mile from the plaza in Sayulita. It's a 15 minute walk or we can arrange a golf cart rental.

This property is a bird watchers mecca, with over 70 species seen in the surrounding jungle. If surfing is your thing, you can check the swell size, direction and wind from Sayulita to Punta Mita from the deck. 

As you step through the front door a sweeping view of the ocean, mountains, jungle and beaches greet your eyes.  The MAIN HOUSE has been decorated with an Asian flare, Balinese ikats, Thai silks, Buddhas, Indian and Burmese artifacts and more.

Serene, temple-like and comfortable, a wrap around deck has a built in Balinese style lounging bed, great for watching sunsets and stars at night. The living room has been designed for comfort, lounging and the deck is fantastic for yoga, some couples choose to sleep there. There are bifold doors and windows for indoor/outdoor living and comfort. There is a full well equipped kitchen and both indoor and outdoor dining. 

The detached Master Bedroom has a kingsize bed and a spectacular bathroom, the building is located just off the deck. Both bedrooms provide ample privacy from each other and both have air conditioning. The detached bedroom is decorated with Tibetan and Burmese art and artifacts, and is literally breathtaking in its beauty. 

The interior bedroom has a king size bed, mosquitos nets, screened windows and sculpted bathroom.

The Bungalito has a double bed, mosquito nets, screened windows and a 3 piece bathroom. It is not air conditioned. It can be added for sn additional $100 per night.

CASITA GANESHA GUEST HOUSE: With its own private path/parking and entry Casita Ganesha  is its own little world. You enter into a round living and full kitchen area with a palapa style roof. The bedroom and bath lie beyond. The art again reflects the Asian influence and of course the Ganesha the Elephant who removes obstacles is there to greet you.

From the king size bed you gaze out over the tree tops and ocean and feel like you are living in the trees. There are wonderful ocean views/sounds and parrots and pelicans flying by at eye level. It is magical and refreshing. There is a large mosquito net around the bed and bi-fold wood and glass windows open to the view and tree tops. Your own private garden terrace sits below. Casita Ganesha is perfect for a couple desiring privacy and special vacation to remember forever.

We have on-site managers Poncho and Víri who will make you most comfortable. Massage is available by appointment without leaving the property.

We offer multiple acommodation options for different group sizes and budgets:

If you are one couple, you can rent either the Main House or Casita Ganesha depending on your budget

Idyllic Setting
This is such a beautiful tranquil property! There are incredible views of the ocean as well as the 5 star sunsets every night. The caretakers of this property are such gracious hosts. The husband is an expert chef and his wife is an expert masseuse. We enjoyed visiting Sayulita each day but our favorite part was coming back to the property, sitting by the pool and enjoying the sunset. We were lucky in that there were no other guests on the property so we had the entire swimming pool to ourselves. And, we spent most of our time there! I could go on and on, but you need to experience yourself. We will definitely be back.

Heavenly! Tranquil! Private Paradise!
We're finally getting around to writing our review of Casa Carricitos after admiring our beautiful photos we took there and had blown up for our walls at home. We stayed in the main house in June 2019, and had the entire property to ourselves. We absolutely LOVED it! The location was perfect...a short walk to all the action in downtown Sayulita, but secluded in the jungle overlooking the ocean for privacy. The views from the pool, upper deck/patio, and master suite were amazing. Even the view from the open air bathroom was incredible! Our favorite days of our whole vacation were the days we spent the whole day on property just soaking up the sun, lounging and floating in the pool, and chilling during the sunset in the covered cabana/bed out on the upper patio. We had Carmen prepare a couple meals for us...what a treat, and very delicious. Probably some of the best meals we had on our trip, with plenty of leftovers to enjoy poolside the next day. The beach just below the estate is uncrowded, and with the exception of maybe one or two other couples, felt like it was our own private beach. The beach, and water were both clean and refreshing. Adele, the owner was great to work with. We felt at home here. The house was stocked with all the amenities we needed, and it was perfect as a tranquil, relaxing, romantic sanctuary. Lot's of Thai influence decor throughout which contributed to the tranquil ambiance. Would LOVE to know where Adele got the metal Mermaid/Angel fixture on master bathroom door! Great Energy throughout! Would come back in a heartbeat. Regards, Michelle & Kirk.

2nd time in a row we stayed here
Loved it so much the first time, we came back exactly one year later. First year we stayed at Casita Ganesha and this year the main house of Carricitos. The place is stunning and the master bedroom is amazing (can’t beat an outdoor shower overlooking the ocean). We rented a golf cart this time around and are glad we did, it opened up so much more of Sayulita to us. Plus, getting to/from town was a quick jot vs what seemed like a planned activity without one.

Highly recommend this venue to anyone. We’ll probably stay here again for a 3rd time in the near future.

Wonderful Experience
There is nothing like being on your expansive deck, margarita in hand, and watching the sun slipping into the ocean every night - treating us to glorious sunsets. Perhaps equally nice was the sound of the jungle at night; or the sound of the surf in our ears as we slept and awakened. And the wonderful art work that complimented the tasteful furniture. Thanks for allowing to experience this bit of paradise.

Muy tranquilo!
A full moon greeted us when we arrived at Adele and Michael's property...Lisa (on site manager) guided us through the most incredible , private, quiet, property grounds. The jungle location and tranquility this home provides is exactly what our family was looking for!Large ,open, private rooms, beautiful decor, calming...with a constant sound of the ocean! We awoke to a cacophony of birds and in the evening... sunsets that were awesome,peaceful...whales heading south to breed ,dotting the open seas...We felt close enough to town and all the excitement when we wanted to participate, but yet a 10 minute golf cart ride brought us back to our respite.We spent a lot of time at the gorgeous pool, lingering and floating the day away..laughing and loving each other's company.Thank you Adele and Michael for sharing your amazing home and casita with our family. We created many fond memories here and hope to come back !Muchisimas gracias!

absolutely perfecto in every way
our group of 4 adults and a 5 yr old could not have fit more perfectly at casa carricitos. lalo’s people picked us up at the airport, hit the mega to get basics, toured the rest of the route leisurely through the mountains and arrived in a tropical jungle paradise with carmen’s perfect preparation awaiting! and this is just the first few hours of what certainly was the quintessential sayulita experience. chillin at the pool sippin cold drinks coming down off the travel high and waking up in the morning to the perfect view, a secluded beach and fresh coconuts plucked from the palms by conrado! walking through the jungle to town passing playa los muertos and the amazing cemetery nestled in the hillside of lush vegetation and trees just hints at the truly remarkable setting. thank you lisa for watching over us and thank you adele for allowing this to be a reality! we WILL see you soon!

There were six of us that rented the main house and the guest house for a wedding in Sayulita.
It was beyond what we imagined! The views from the entire house were spectacular. We never had enough of the views from the bedroom, living/kitchen area, and the pool. The sunsets were beautiful and even saw whales our last night!!!
We will be back!!

Panoramic Ocean View!!
An oasis in the jungle with amazing ocean views and secluded beach below! Loved being away from town to enjoy the peaceful scenery - a true "stare-therapy" vacation. So many beautiful birds and butterflies around gorgeous landscaping. The Cinnamon Hummingbirds (3 eggs hatched to see the tiniest baby hummers - a thrill!) were our favorites. Well equipped kitchen for ease of making meals. Nicely furnished and comfortable bed - enjoyed the air conditioning in bedroom for hot June evenings. Privacy of pool was great with amazing view over infinity edge. Lounging on the Bali bed with evening cocktail and watching the sun sink into the ocean was a daily ritual during our stay. Massage with manager Lisa was super and relaxing. LOVED IT!

You have the same experience we have when at Casa Carricitos . I think you channeled me! Stare therapy, Bali bed, birds, nature, sunset, magic magic. We love when people come and get that our place is made for laid back relaxing, comfort. Please come back again!

Shangri-La found!
"Stop. Look no further. You have found Shangri La, and there's simply no need for you to do anything now but book your reservations at Casa Carricitos.

This place is pure magic. Exceeds all expectations. So much so that, to be honest, we actually considered not writing this recommendation. That's how good Carricitos is. Our little voice kept saying, "No! Don't spread the secret about Casa Carricitos. Let's keep this all to ourselves!"

But in appreciation for the vision of utterly wonderful owners Adele and Michael, for the entire Casa Carricitos Family (who grant every wish beyond your expectations) and for the stunning retreat they co-create, we knew the Carricitos secret had to be shared. Trust us: You simply will not find another location in Sayulita (perhaps on the planet) that offers more than this serene paradise. Words and pictures simply cannot do it justice, cannot capture the magical "vibe" that is Carricitos. Time spent in this paradise feels like you have been transported to another planet. Should you desire a little reminder of what the rest of the world might be doing, town is just a short, beautiful walk. We doubt you'll be making that trip much…Carricitos is so magical, so surreal, that you just really never want to leave."
