AMAZING house to stay in Sayulita...!!!
We booked for 4 days, and the experience was so wonderful that we decided to stay another 4 nights (fortunately the house was available). I have to say that the photos don't show how beautiful the house is. It really exceeded all our expectations. Carlos (the manager) and Areli (the housekeeper) are so kind and diligent to provide everything we needed during our stay. The views from the pool deck are breathtaking. Looking forward to go back soon.....!!!

We stayed for a week for a family vacation with another family and we didn't want to leave the house! The views are breathtaking, the house was amazing and everyone had a great time. We had dinner cooked for us a few nights at the house and it was also delicious.

Unbelievable Views!
We just finished a week long stay here and it was our first time spending more than a day trip in Sayulita. This property delivers - super clean, killer views, fantastic staff on site.

Not only that but the owner set up transportation to/from the airport in advance. Helped us secure a golf cart for the trip. Carlos and Arely are the on site property manager and housekeeper. Arely cooked us breakfast every morning - a must.

Plus the property is close enough to town to walk, and far enough away that you feel away from the hustle and bustle of city center.

Truly a great property and a perfect way to experience all the amazing culture in Sayulita while feeling like you are at a luxury resort.

We'll definitely be coming back - just wish it were sooner.

Absolutely gorgeous!!
We recently stayed at the painted pony villa and can’t say enough about what a beautiful house this is! The lay out was perfect for us, we had a group of 6 adults and 2 children. Everyone was able to gather together for meals and also have space to do their own thing in different areas of the house. The views were spectacular and we felt very safe. The town is very charming with a lot of fantastic restaurants and shops. Being on the north side it is much quieter so we opted to rent golf carts and spend most evenings over in the city center exploring restaurants and shops. Everyone in town was very nice and again we always felt safe walking around at night. If you want more activity I would definitely recommend a golf cart because walking to the downtown area would be a bit lengthy for most. The home has incredible views because it sits so high up, with that said the hill going up to the house is a steep one! Another reason to utilize the golf cart option :) I would also recommend having at least one meal prepared for you at the villa. We all raved about how amazing our meals were! Carlos was always there if we needed anything, very helpful!! When we arrived I asked if there was a blender. He didn’t think so but honestly I feel like it was within 30min a blender appeared on the counter! He was awesome!! You will not be disappointed with staying at this incredible property!!

Great location, amazing views and service!
Fun, relaxing and memorable vacation! Painted Ponies is a beautiful home and exceeded my expectations. The flow of the house worked very well for our group. We loved the pool/bar/ hot tub hang out areas as well as the privacy of our individual rooms. Our favorite spot was the beach in front of the home (5-7 minute walk) as it was not over crowded but still had plenty of energy. In the evenings we walked to town for dinner and night life. So many great places to try! Thank you to Janis for her exceptional customer service and helping us with our many questions. Carlos and Arely were extremely friendly and accommodating. We will be back!

So good!
We loved everything about our stay at Painted Ponies. The villa is gorgeous and was ideally laid out for our 2 family group of 8 adults - everyone had their separate area to retreat to at night and plenty of communal space for relaxing and socializing the rest of the time. The staff was amazing - we were served the most delicious food and amazing drinks, all beautifully presented. The town of Sayulita was a pleasant surprise (much nicer and more interesting than I had expected) and was easy to get to by foot or golf cart from our villa. Note - the hill to the villa is very steep - not an easy walk if you are mobility impaired. I hope to come back here soon - I have had many villa vacations during my lifetime and this one ranks at or near the top.

Awesome house and even better staff!
We have been renting villas around the world for many years - Painted Ponies is up there with the best of them.
1) Location - perfect - just far enough from the center to me more quiet but still an easy walk to town and two minutes from the beach. Plus you get the best view in Sayulita.
2) The house - great - especially for teenage to adult guests - less so for little kids. The main room with the opening glass wall and bar and dinner area are fantastic for social family time. The rooms are well spread out to give great privacy to all guests.
3) The staff - awesome - Carlos and Arely the chef have the ability to create fantastic meals and cater to every need without being stressed or obtrusive. It’s like they had a magic wand.
4) The owner - the best - Janis was communicative, responsive, very helpful and very fast to return the deposit.
5) Overall - Not sure what to offer as suggestions for improvement. Everything was perfect.

This is our 2nd year staying at Painted Ponies, and probably won't be our last. The views are incredible. The layout of the home is perfect which allows for each party to have their privacy if needed. The kitchen appliances are 2nd to none, and the bar in the main room overlooking the ocean is a staple! Carlos is great, and extremely helpful, and Arely is fantastic. She can also make you a meal you will never forget.

Absolutely Stunning and Perfect Location!!!!
I came to the Villa with my two teenage girls and husband and my sister along with her 3 teenage boys. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. I highly recommend staying on the North side of Sayulita -- just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town but still just a short golf cart ride away. The setting of the Villa was gorgeous!!! We all enjoyed going to the beach during the day and then cooling off in the beautiful infinity pool in the afternoon and watching the sunset each night!! The layout of the home was amazing giving everyone privacy. Carlos and Arley, the house staff were so wonderful and accomodating with helping us with anything we needed. The pictures of the home online were so stunning but walking into the Villa that first night was unbelievable. We will definitely be back. Thank you again to Janis and her staff with providing us with such an incredible home to stay in.

Fantastic, 5 Stars
Our group of 8 adults stayed at Villa Painted Ponies from February 3-10th. The villa was spectacular, the views amazing. The property is as advertised. From the day we booked to arrival the owner responded promptly to all of or comments and questions.

It comes fully stocked with everything you need for a vacation. (Utensils, blender, ice machine, ample loungers, beach towels etc.) It was very helpful to have both a wine fridge and large kitchen fridge for our food and drinks

The staff was friendly and more the accommodating for our request throughout the week and Arely prepared a fantastic meal for us on the first night. We would highly recommend having her cook at least one time during your stay. Carlos ensured our pick up to the airport was on time, fixed a small leak in the bathroom and checked both the hot tub and pool regularly.

The villa itself is very secure with coded gates for entry and exit and the location was perfect. Located far enough from town to feel the peace and quiet but close enough to walk. We debated renting a golf cart prior to arrival but after one night we decided it was not necessary. Outside of short steep hill from the villa, the rest of the walk into town was flat. We figured the total walk time from the front door to center of town was approximately 15 minutes.

The villa owner (Janis) has omitted many fantastic details that you only notice once you arrive. We would highly recommend this rental and plan on returning in 2019.

Thank you Janis, Carlos and Arely for making this vacation very special.
