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 bedrooms. 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.

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.

Phenomenal Experience
As a veteran house renter in Ocho Rios, Tulum, Yelapa, Playa Del Carmin, Tahoe, Mendocino, I would say without hesitation that Villa Karuna is the best house I have rented. The description is not inflated. The location is close to town, but also far enough away that you are in your own private paradise. Views are stunning and property is well maintained. Watching whales from your balcony, sipping drinks by the pool-doesn't get better.

Eric is very knowledgeable about the area and a really chill person who is easy to talk to and very responsive. I will definitely rent this location again. Sayulita now has lots of excellent restaurants and shops. Pricing is still good. Town gets kind of crazy after 8:30, but exciting vibe. Read Quinn and Leslie's suggestion for use of house and recommendations of businesses. Gecko car rental was great, Sayulita Entourage as well.

Beautiful Retreat
This was our second visit to this beautiful home located about a mile outside of Sayulita on a hill 200 feet above the Pacific Ocean. It is an ideal winter retreat as it is very quiet and has everything one needs to enjoy time away from regular life. This trip included whales as well as the gorgeous sunsets and moonsets. The manager Eric is very responsive and the grounds are also beautiful. Sayulita has many good restaurants, coffee shops and enough food stores to help you stay stocked. The Sunday La Cruz market 30 minutes away is a don't miss for fun shopping and even more wonderful food choices. I'd call is Sayulita Solitude.

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!

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!
