Casa Selvatica 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 International 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, like the rest of Punta Mita, 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,' the main house and 3 casitas - all located on an acre of land.
1. Casa Selvatica, the main villa sitting directly in front of the beach is over 2000 square feet, has a living room, dining room, well-stocked kitchen, a guest room with a queen bed, and a patio. The upstairs consists of a master suite with a king bed and a private palapa/patio looking over the ocean. Sleeps 4.
Just behind the main house of Casa Selvatica, in the palm tree forest, are the bungalows which have a slight view of the ocean through the palm trees and out the creek bed.
2. Casa Lilia, which sits at the top of the path down to the beach, is a studio with a queen bed and a great kitchenette, indoor and outdoor showers, and an outdoor patio with table and chairs.
3. Casa Buena Suerte is above Casa Lilia and is a suite with a large bedroom with a king bed, the living room has two sleepable couches and you'll also find a kitchenette. The bathroom features a cupola ceiling in between the two rooms with a shower and a lot of hand made tile and stone. Enjoy an outdoor porch with a stone table and chairs. Sleeps 2-4.
4. Casa Cielo is a new loft apartment up in the trees. It features a queen bed, kitchenette, dining area, palapa (thatched roof) covered bathroom, and 2-person copper bathtub/shower and lounges in the open air under the palm trees. Sleeps 2.Casa Cielo is not rented alone.
The four 'Casas' can sleep from 10 to 12 people. All bedrooms have AC.

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 longboards and 2 shortboards reserved for experienced surfers. We also provide yoga mats.

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 bougainvillea 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 gatehouse with guards 24/7. The beach is very private with few people on the sand and around five surf breaks from one end to the other. And to repeat, it is about 20 minutes to Sayulita and 5 to Punta Mita.
