Highly HIGHLY Recommend
Villa Karuna is a very special place. The house and the grounds surrounding it are truly amazing. Everything is impeccably maintained. The house completely opens up to breathtaking views of the ocean. It is also very well appointed with all the extras you would ever need to enjoy the kitchen, the pool, the beach, and the magnificent daily sunsets. While Villa Karuna is peaceful and relaxing, when you are ready for a more lively scene, Sayulita is a very short ride away. We also adventured out to multiple other towns and beaches all within a 15 to 20 minute drive. Lastly I can’t say enough about the owners and property manager. We could tell they sincerely wanted us to enjoy the property. The owner’s were very attentive and super helpful with all the guidance and suggestions regarding the property and surrounding areas. The property manager lives in a bungalow on the 7 acre gated property. His presence made us feel additionally safe and he was likewise very helpful during our stay, I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend to everyone looking for a first class experience to make a visit.

Exceeded all Expectations!
This is a really beautiful home and property! We appreciated the tasteful decoration and the wonderful design and architectural details. We really didn’t want to leave the house and go anywhere! I have high standards for ambiance and this house actually exceeded my expectations! We loved the walk through the jungle to a beautiful, private beach - kind of a rare find for sure! The property itself is a tropical oasis with gorgeous sunset views. The star gazing at night from the patio and pool area was magical! Everything about Villa Karuna is magical! The kitchen was very nice and well stocked. We cooked dinner there 3 nights and found everything we needed for an elegant sunset dinner party! The location is perfect. I would recommend this house without hesitation and am hoping we can stay here next year when we visit Sayulita! This is not just a vacation rental - it is a magical experience!

Best Vacation Rental EVER
Loved everything about our 9 day trip we took with another couple. The house is gorgeous, even better than the pics! Loved our daily walks through the jungle on back roads and trails into town. Can be hilly but I enjoyed the challenge. Eric was super responsive to anything and everything we asked. Very chill vibe in Sayulita. We will be back! Best Vacation Rental I’ve ever rented and I’ve rented a few! Thank you for letting us share in your piece of paradise 🤗

beautiful home & excellent location
After always staying in the town of Sayulita, this is the first time we stayed on the outskirts near Playa Patzcuaritos. The property blew us away with its thoughtful design that maximized the view of the ocean and jungle. It was very well equipped and super comfortable and peaceful. The gorgeous beach was a short walk away and was virtually empty. Eric, the property manager, was so helpful and responsive too. We are planning on going back again next year for sure.

10/10 Recommend
Our stay the first week of January could not have been better. The property and amenities met and exceeded our expectations. Location is just close enough to town to remain convenient (10 minute golf cart ride) and just far enough to escape the crowds. The grounds are immaculately landscaped and maintained. The home is well appointed with all the conveniences needed, and beautifully decorated. Small touches like fresh cut flowers throughout the house from the property grounds were a pleasant touch. The property owners provided an extensive amount of information prior to our arrival, not only of the property but also tips on transportation, beaches and other local amenities. The property manager, Eric was very helpful and responsive to any needs that arose. We felt safe, secure and extremely relaxed as we lounged on the back patio and watched humpback whales in the bay (bring your binoculars!) and fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach below. We never turned on the air conditioner in the bedrooms, and never had issues with bugs or the family of coati that visited the pool area each night. Thank you for the outstanding hospitality. We will be back!

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.
