(Summer is the best: warm water, incredible surf, tropical lightening storms at night and wake up to a clean, fresh and sunny morning! The weather is warm but if you love the ocean, this is the best time of year and all our bedrooms have AC!)
Casa Selvatica, near Sayulita, is located in the private and 24/7 gated community of Punta del Burro, 20 minutes south of Sayulita, 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, 5 minutes south of Punta Mita and 10 minutes north of the fishing village (and new Marina) La Cruz de Huanacaxtle - all located in Riviera Nayarit. It is the second to the last house in the Burros community, on almost an acre of land in a palm forest adjacent to a river bed and sits in front of one of the area's best surf beaches: 200 yards to the right of the house is the well known surf point called "Burros" and directly in front of the house is a very forgiving wave perfect for learners - with another mostly left break in between. Punta del Burro is one of the earliest Punta Mita developments, which accounts for both its charm and its isolation – it is not adjacent to any town or village, and, as the rest of Punta Mita, and it is far from any of the problems currently associated with border towns and other urban centers in Mexico. It is private, it is safe, and you will experience the luxury of being able to watch the surf from either the patio in front of the main house, the private palapa off the Master Bedroom, or under the palm trees in the cozy sand-level sitting area.
The property consists of 4 'casas' which we prefer to rent as one property, but certain times of the year, the casas can be rented serpartely. They are:
1. Casa Selvatica, the main house in front on the beach, and the bungalows ("casas") in the gardens in back. Casa Selvatica is over 2000 square feet, has a living room, dining room, well-stocked kitchen, a guest room (queen bed) with patio and an entire master bedroom suite (king bed) upstairs with private palapa/patio look out area out over the ocean. Sleeps 4.
In back in the garden is:
2. Casa Buena Suerte, a suite with a large bedroom (king bed), a living room with two sleepable couches and a kitchenette, outdoor porch w/ table and chairs (Sleeps 2 - 4)
On the path down to the beach is:
3. Casa Lilia, a studio with queen bed with an excellent kitchenette, indoor and outdoor showers and outdoor patio w/ table and chairs.
4. And the new Casa Cielo - a loft apartment up in the trees - with bed area, kitchenette, bathroom covered by Palapa (thatched roof), and 2-person copper bathtub/shower and lounges in the open air under the palm trees. Sleeps 2 (Queen bed, outdoor copper tub/shower, kitchenette, dining area.)
The four 'Casas' can sleep from 10 to 12 people. All bedrooms have AC.
Again, depending on the time of year and your wishes and numbers of guests, you may rent the main house or one or more of the bungalows ("casas")- we have various combinations to make it work for you. Please email to discuss as priority is given to renting the entire property.
CHEF: we have a professionally trained fabulous chef who will shop, prepare your meal, serve and clean up either one, two or three meals a day at very reasonable prices. Inquire re/ rates.
AUTO: our administrator has fully insured cars he can make available to you also at reasonable rates. He will pick you up at the airport, stop by the market if you wish, bring you home, give you a tour of the property and leave you with the car.
SURFBOARDS/SUPS & OTHER TOYS: There are boogie boards, snorkes/fins and an Italian competition ping pong table on the property. We have a quiver with over 25 surfboards (long boards, short boards, fun boards and long and short soft tops for learning! And we have four Paddle Boards - all of which you can rent while you are at the house, And we have a great teacher who has been known to have a student standing all the way in on the right or left wave directly in front of the house. We have 3 long boards and 2 short boards reserved for experienced surfers.
If you enjoy walking through gardens and palm forests, you can find at the back of the property many varieties of bananas, papayas, pineapples, oranges, lemons, limes, limas, tangerines, grapefruit, lychees, passion fruit, guavas, guanabanas (cheramoyas), mangos and avocados. Given the incredible growth patterns in the tropics, many of the trees are starting to bear and you may find your own 100 lb. bunch of bananas hanging in front of the house. Depending on the time of year, you might also find a vegetable garden full of many varieties of lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, peas and many herbs: basil, oregano, parsley, chives, cilantro, etc.
The beauty of this property is that not only is it sitting directly on the sand in front of one of the area's best surf breaks, but it borders a lush tropical creek bed with paths that go back through bamboo patches and palm trees ending up in an orchard surrounded by pink and orange bouganvilla plants - a true paradise for surfers, beach lovers, bird watchers, photographers, nature lovers and anyone who relishes the privacy and solitude afforded by a spectacular property and house located at the end of the road!
Punta del Burro is a small community of about 20 houses, not attached to a town or village and thus provides excellent security. It has a gate house with guards 24/7. The beach is very private with few people on the sand and around five surf breaks from the one end to the other. And to repeat, it is about 20 minutes to Sayulita and 5 to Punta Mita.
