Villa Karuna in Sayulita, Mexico is a two story, spacious 3000 sq ft. romanitc & beautiful home that 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.

The 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 air conditioned 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 beautiful 2-bedroom 3 bath home, VIlla Karuna, is located south of Sayulita's town plaza. Located on a 7 acre estate It is very private and gated with lush tropical gardens. It is the perfect location at the edge of town, near enough to walk, drive or hop a taxi for all the great food, beach time, 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.

Beautiful well appointed jungle retreat with amazing views
Villa Karuna is a pretty special place. Our first impressions when we toured the house and grounds were to first off pick our jaws up off the ground from the amazing location and views, and second to appreciate how functional and well appointed the place was. Eric -caretaker and fount of local knowledge- greeted us and made sure we were all settled in, and throughout our stay ensured that he handled any issues with speed and grace. He even offered us the use of his jeep when our golf cart had a mishap! Very appreciated! The house itself is very well appointed with open air layout, spacious bedrooms, an amazing jetted tub in the master with views for miles, and a pool that was just amazing... and the owner even left us a welcome bag of local coffee! In addition, there were boogie boards and umbrellas available for beach use and plenty of towels. My biggest complaint would be the bugs, but hey...its the jungle and when we went the seasons were "turning" AND there was a bit of rain. It is what it is. (pro tip: place towels at bottoms of doors in bedrooms to keep bugs from coming in- it works!) As far as convenience, the house is a 5 min golf cart ride from town, and 8 min to playa los muertos (our fave). All in all we built some great memories on this trip with the house being a very nice. place to come back to after a busy day. Thank you again to Eric and Sunny for all your accommodations!

A week in paradise
Amazing house in one of the most perfect places on earth, sitting in a tropical garden, on a hill in the jungle over looking the Pacific ocean. Every facet is perfect.

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!

Lovely and classy place with probably the best jungle/ocean view anywhere. Only thing missing was a gas BBQ (there is a small charcoal BBQ, without briquettes). No hair products in the bathrooms, so bring your own. Highly recommended.

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!
