No Place Better for Our Needs
Our group was two couples who travel frequently all over the world and usually spend April in Bali. Due to COVID we needed to stay closer to home this time and found Villa Karuna. The home is perfect for two couples. There is a rentable bungalow that sleeps another couple, it's a short walk away from the main house so nice if someone in your group wants more privacy, but definitely separate from the main home.

The owner and property manager (Eric) helped us to arrange for an airport pickup through Ernesto, who stopped at the grocery for us on the way to the villa so we could provision.

We use Town Around Golf Carts - they had the golf cart delivered to the villa for us and picked it up at the end of our stay. You will want a car or a small car (town parking is tight). You could walk to town but it's a haul and there isn't a trail or anything, you are walking the same road you'd drive in a cart. Cart ride is five minutes to the plaza and it's super easy.

The private beach is accessible from the same road that gets to the villa (turn right at the Y before you turn left for the villa) - you go all the way to the bottom of the hill where there is an old sentry gate where you park. From there it's a short walk. The road to the beach is steep, but navigable in a fuel-injected golf cart.

Ruben (he has a restaurant off the plaza) made meals for us, we hired him for one meal a day, brunch or dinner depending. Portions were perfect and each day he left us with chips and guac/salsa so we always had plenty of food on hand if we didn't want to leave the villa. You can have food delivered or it's super easy to run in for take out and of course, there are tons of restaurants for dining out.

The villa has maybe the best view the in entire region. We had most dinners in so we wouldn't miss the breathtaking sunsets.

Birdwatchers will be in bliss and we also saw a couple of Caotis (long tail raccoons that look a little like monkeys).

The pool is small, but perfectly lovely and fine for 4-6ppl at a time.

The house was perfectly stocked for meals and everything else you'd need. There were games and even sun hats in the cupboard.

Loved the location
Our family of 4 absolutely loved Villa Karuna. We were surrounded by nature and away from the crowds, but still just a short 5-minute golf cart ride to Sayulita's restaurants and nearby beaches. We loved waking up to the amazing panoramic views of the jungle and ocean and seeing the whales and colorful birds from the balcony. The owners and house manager were super communicative and provided lots of great information for our stay. I would definitely book another vacation there again, hopefully sooner than later!

Dream getaway!
The property and the views are unparalleled! The pictures don’t do Villa Karuna justice! It’s simply amazing! We watched the whales jump from our balcony everyday. The sounds of the jungle and animal watching are awesome! We had everything we needed and more. The house is fully stocked and comfortable. We cooked many nights just to watch the sun go down. Two couples stayed for almost three weeks over the holidays and we never got tired of waking up there! It’s just far enough from Downtown Sayulita that you can get away from the craziness for some peace and quiet but only a 5 min golf cart ride away when you’re looking for some beach/food/shopping/entertainment. We 100% recommend this place and we will absolutely be back!

Blissful experience!
WOW... there are not enough words to describe this incredible property. The attention to detail, the fabulous views and beautiful art and architecture were beyond anything we could have imagines. The pictures really do not do this home justice. It is simply perfection. The on-site property manager is extremely helpful in all aspects and our vacation couldn’t have been better. BRAVO Villa Karuna, can’t wait to see you again. Enjoying the wildlife and watching whales were an added bonus.

Exceeded all Expectations!
We loved our stay at Villa Karuna.

We were surprised at how busy Sayulita is, so it was wonderful to have a place to escape to, with the beautiful gardens, and spacious rooms of Karuna.

We hiked to the beach down the hill almost every day we were there and loved the pool when we got back up the hill.

Eric, the property manager was very helpful and responded to emails right away.

Villa Karuna was was perfect for us!

Lovely sanctuary!
We loved our stay at Villa Karuna in Sayulita. It was the perfect location giving us our own private sanctuary to escape the busy holiday season in Sayulita, but close enough to make frequent visits in town to celebrate. We also traveled to San Pancho and explored beaches along the way to Punta de Mita. The house was so comfortable and had everything we needed with beautiful ocean views, amazing artistry, and jungle life. Thank you so much for creating such a peaceful home.

Wonderful Jungle Haven
Villa Karuna is a dream! It's like someone dropped a private hideaway resort on the fringes of the jungle, perfect in its isolation, yet only minutes to beach, restaurants and town. The house was stocked very nicely, and we were able to cook full meals in the gorgeous kitchen, overlooking the lush jungle growth and vivid-blue ocean. The sparkling infinity-edge pool was crystal blue and refreshing, and perfectly placed with views for miles. The manager, Eric, was thorough in our welcome tour, and gave us great tips on dining, shopping, fishing, and was spot on with everything, which we were very thankful for. In our opinion, we were glad that we had rented a car, because the walk to town would have been way far for the heat, but it's certainly not an unreasonable walk for those who opt out of a vehicle.

I'm not sure what it's like during other times of the year, but in August, be prepared for jungle noises and mosquitos. We experienced some loud frogs and the mosquitos were pretty intense, however the housekeeper said that it had nothing to do with the house, it was the time of year, and throughout the town--which we found to be true. The house was well-equipped with mosquito spray and coils. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay at Villa Karen, and highly recommend!

Incredible property and views!
We stayed for 8 days, with our 1.5 month old daughter. She loved the pool! The house was very well set-up and easy to stay in (appliances, dishes, etc.). The views and property are incredible. It was very easy to get to the nearby beaches and town via golf cart, but many days there was no reason to leave Karuna! Will gladly come back. Thanks!
