Can’t wait to go back!!!
Our group of 8 just returned from Sayulita. We absolutely loved this house and our stay in general. The house is appointed perfectly, the staff are amazing and the owner (Janis) is great to deal with.
We booked our trip several months before going and I had a few questions for Janis before going. Janis always was super responsive and informative.
We were given a very thorough handbook explaining everything about the house and many other extra things we can do. Take the time to read it and you will be very prepared.
Carlos (the house manager) arranged our transportation to/from the house, which was easy, fairly priced and most importantly punctual.
Carlos and the housekeeper keep the home up perfectly and both are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The suggested cook, Chef Nuri, made the absolute best meals we had on our stay. My only regret is we didn’t book more meals.
We had a little issue with one of the rooms at checkout. Janis communicated the issue, the resolution and the cost was more than fair. Janis is clearly very trustworthy.
The house is on a steep hill. Recommend you rent from the golf cart company that is recommended by Janis. They have by far the nicest carts in town and are good people.
When we return to Sayulita, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at this house. As far as we are concerned, it was just perfect.

Everything was amazing!
Gorgeous home, property, and great location. Well worth the short hike up the hill each day for undoubtedly the best view in all of Sayulita.

Amazing home, Incredible view
Our stay was amazing. The owner was a great communicator - quick and informative. The property manager Carlos made check in easy, and helped w airport transportation, massage appts, and more. Adriana kept the house clean without being obtrusive - she did a great job! But the real star is the house … built amazingly well with beautiful detail; the view is crazy beautiful from every room in the house; the kitchen is well-appointed so you can cook gourmet meals in or out. We rented golf carts and the hill was a little steep but it made coming and going a real adventure (no need for a car!!). We also hired Chef Nuri from Bocadito Catering to cook for us for 2 nights - highly recommend the Octopus!! This little surf town has a casual, exciting vibe - no need to EVER dress-up - dress in whatever is comfortable and go sit with the locals! We don’t usually travel to anywhere twice, but Sayulita might be the exception! Enjoy!!

10/10 Recommend
We just returned from a 5 night stay at Painted Ponies and it is exactly as described. The house is beautiful with stunning views. The a/c in all of the bedrooms work incredibly well and kept us nice and cool during the evening storms. The beds were comfortable with lots of room to spread out and Carlos (house manager) and Crystal (housekeeper) were very friendly and accomodating. The kitchen had basic amenities - some spices, coffee (regular coffee maker), salt and pepper. I'm sad we didn't have a chance to cook because it is a very large kitchen with outdoor grill but we had so many good meals in town. The bar has an ice maker and wine fridge and the whole house runs on filtered water so everything was safe. Bathrooms have hair dryers, plenty of storage and there was shampoo/conditioner in all. If you arrange for transportation thru the property, they will stop at a major grocery store on your way to the house. Use this opportunity to get your "basics" - bottled water, diet coke, half/half, etc. These items may or may not be available in Sayulita. The best place to get cash in Sayulita is the bank next to St. Luke's Med Center. You can get pesos at a good exchange rate. We also took a day cruise on Allycat Catamaran to the Mierta Islands. We cannot recommend this enough. For $95 USD per person plus tip we had a full day on a great boat with awesome staff, full bar, good food and gorgeous views - and only 48 ppl on a huge boat. We were able to swim, snorkel and do water sports all while being taken care of 100 percent. We also rented 2 golf carts for our group of 6 (their mandate that there has to be a "seat" for everyone in the house) but Sayulita Golf Carts has some of the only carts that can get up "gringo hill". Our first night out, the golf cart lights weren't working after dinner so we took it by their shop - it had started to rain hard and we were scared to drive it up the hill. The owner's son fixed the lights (after hours), followed us to the hill to the home in his car and then personally drove us up the hill to make sure we all got home safe - fantastic customer service. Four in our group used the golf cart every time going to town, the other 2 walked. Overall, great trip - loved the house - WIFI worked great - rooftop terrace was perfect for morning yoga and sunset cocktails. It is a wonderful home and Janis (owner) is so helpful in planning the details of your stay. Book now!

Highly Recommend
Absolutely beautiful, inside and out. The views are incredible, the pool was perfect and the house was roomy and comfortable. The art throughout was also a wonderful touch. The location is great though we highly recommend the golf cart, which Janis helped arrange along with travel to and from the airport. We're already talking about staying here again with a bigger group.

Absolutely gorgeous!
We had so much fun during our trip to Painted Ponies! Sayulita is a very special and unique town, and this home made our stay absolutely memorable. It is beautifully maintained, and Carlos and Cristal (who help out at the house) were so welcoming. We cannot recommend Painted Ponies highly enough. We cannot wait to go back!

Absolutely Amazing Experience
This was our first trip post-COVID vaccination, and it was exactly what we needed. Carlos (the house manager) helped us organize everything, and was always available when we were there. He also makes a great mango margarita. Crystal (the housekeeper) kept everything in tip-top shape during our entire stay. They were both lovely to be around and went above and beyond for us at every turn. We had multiple massages from Melody as well as meals from Chef Cecilia. We would absolutely stay here a heartbeat. Thank you to everyone who made it wonderful!

Everything was amazing!
Incredible location if you want to be within walking distance to town but not too close to hear all the late night noise! The house is immaculate! Each room is very private. The kitchen is very large and very comfortable. And then there’s the pool....always the perfect temperature. I have nothing but great things to say. Janis is very welcoming and accomodating. We will definitely be back.

Stay here. You won't regret it.
We really enjoyed our time at Villa Painted Ponies. The property is everything it is advertised to be, and more. The view, the pool, the house itself, everything was amazing. It's a short walk to the beach, and central sayulita, we rented a golf cart to get around in, but it's certainly not necessary. Getting to and from the property was a breeze, we stopped at the market to load up on supplies after we landed. I honestly cannot think of a reason not to want to stay here.
