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 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 bungalows - all located on an acre of land.
1. Casa Selvatica, the main house sitting directly in front of the beach Casa Selvatica is over 2000 square feet, has a living room, dining room, large fully equipped kitchen, a guest room (queen bed) with patio and an entire master bedroom (king bed) with ensuite bathroom including a stone bathtub for two. Right off the master bedroom, you'll find a private palapa/patio lookout area out over the ocean. Sleeps 4.
2. Casa Buena Suerte is the bigger bungalow suited for 2-4 guests, located on the garden bath on the backside of the property. It has a king-size bed, living room with two sleepable couches, a small kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, hot plate, blender, coffee maker, juice maker, etc. On the porch outside, you can enjoy a handmade marble table with tall tropical swivel chairs looking out over the creek bed to the ocean.

3. Casa Lilia is on the path leading down to the beach; a studio with a queen-size bed, A/C and kitchenette. The kitchenette is easy to cook in and comes equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, hot plate, blender, coffee maker, electric teapot, sink, and electric grill. Apart from the indoor shower, it also features an outdoor shower with an on-demand water heater which is very nice after coming in from the ocean. Enjoy the outdoor patio and sit at the hand made table and chairs looking down the creek bed, through the palm trees and onto the ocean. The cottage is very beautiful, comfortable, cozy and works great for a couple or single person.
4. Casa Cielo is a loft apartment that feels like a treehouse. You'll find a queen bed, kitchenette, and bathroom all under a brand new palapa (thatched room). The bed has an over-head fan and a side fan, a large mosquito net and is very comfortable. On the other side of the rooftop area, there is a 2 person copper bathtub/shower, table & chairs, lounge and hammock all under the stars! It is high up in the trees and very private.
The four 'Casas' can sleep from 10 to 12 people. All bedrooms have AC.

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.
