20 mins south of Sayulita
Located ON Burros surf break
Big house, 2 cottages, Star Patio Apt
Kayaks and surf boards available
Very private and tranquil
Gated community

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, 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. (Sleeps 2)

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.  For more information please use the contact form and email or call us and we will be happy to assist you.

I deal getaway for a group or family
It is hard to say in a few words how much we loved this place. After our first day, we were trying to figure out when we could make plans to come back. Of the eight of us staying there, I was the only surfer. For me, it was paradise. Walk out to the beach to surf and then back to the house for breaks. I usually did 3 sessions a day. Everyone else walked the beach, hung out at house, or swam in the ocean. There are so many surfboards available, there is one that will work for you. There are also plenty of water toys for non-surfers.

Pablo, the house manager, took such good care of us including arranging to have Octavio cook 3 meals a day for us. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Octavio to cook. All food was amazing. Susana kept the house so clean and tidy. She was like an elf. We did not see her too much but you could always tell that she had been there because it was so nicely kept.

We are really looking forward to getting back.

Wonderful place to stay in Mexico!
My boyfriend and I stayed in Casa Buena Suerte for 2 amazing weeks. This property is truly a beautiful oasis. It is set in a well maintained jungle setting and steps down to a pristine beach.
Casa Buena Suerte has everything you need including a beautiful bedroom with king bed, comfortable sitting area, nice bathroom, patio table and seats with a view of the beach.
The Kitchenette is equipped with almost anything you need to make meals including small refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, and plug in double burners with all the dishes and pans you need. The housekeeper comes in every day to clean, take out garbage, replace water, and make our beds. When there were others staying in the main house, we were able to have a big group dinner cooked by the housekeeper and it was delicious for a very reasonable price! All of the staff and the owner who helped us during our stay were also really generous and kind people.

The beach in front of the house is semi-private in that there is a security guard patrolling it so there are none of the usual vendors you see elsewhere at other mexican beaches. You also can generally leave your stuff out and no one touches it. You can surf right in front of the house or just walk a few minutes and you are at the main surfing spot at Punta Burros. When we were there it was a little treacherous to play in the water as the waves can be big, and there is a rocky reef that you have to navigate. I was able to boogie board when the tide was low, and you can always walk down the way to the hotel and swim in their sandier beach.

This place is a gem and we hope to be able to return soon!

Absolutely incredible! Exceeded all expectations!
Wow! Casa Selvatica and the accompanying 'Casas' were incredible. There is no place quite like this. You are situated right on the beach next to a couple surf breaks (Burros, and smaller break right out front). If you like to surf, then this is the place for you.

Pablo, Jovana, Abel and Lori were such a pleasure to work with. So knowledgable about the area. Pablo did such a fantastic job of arranging cars, picking us up/dropping us off at the airport, and arranging Octavio to cook for us. Oh. My. Gato. Octavio (the chef) and his family cooked us the best meals we had while in Mexico. While Sayulita and surrounding areas were great, you cannot beat his meals. He buys all groceries, cooks the food, and manages all clean up. Perfect for our group of 11.

Sal y Pepe (the cats) were also crowd favorites! Such personalities and they loved being pet and played with. Waking up to them curled up in bowls was such a sight! They also do an incredible job of keeping insects, mice and other critters out of the house.

Punta del Burros is a beautiful spot. Secluded & Authentic. I would not want to stay anywhere else in the area. This is perfect.

The pictures do not do this place justice. It blew away all expectations. Best vacation we have had in years!

Wow, just wow!
Wow, what a paradise! First they set you up. Roberto picked us up at the airport, and patiently waited at the Mega Mart while we stocked up on groceries and got some cash. The house itself is a comfortable work of art, that is so well situated in the palms that you have all the privacy you could ask for, and can always keep cool from the shade. The other thing that contributes to the privacy is how the house sits perfectly up above the beach. The details in the house and guest house are so unique. That indoor / outdoor kitchen, and the outdoor sink, are two things that really stood out. Lori and her staff have all the details covered. It was our first trip to a foreign country with our 10 month old, and it couldn't have been more safe or perfectly suited for a family. Pablo was willing to help us out in any way. He and Roberto set us up with two play pen cribs,, and a baby chair, and we could totally trust Jovana to even baby sit for us a little bit (my wife and wanted to surf together a couple times). Pablo also set us up with a great little rental car, and it being my birthday, we hired Octavio to prepare an amazing meal, while looking over the ocean. I am a surfer, and I was impressed with their board selection. It covers all ranges - short boards, hybrids and long boards. They also have standup paddle boards. The breaks up and down the beach are awesome. The Burros right is world class, but I had an amazing left pretty much to myself, just across the channel that you paddle out. Pay attention to Lori's suggestions as well. "Tacos on the Street" is super tasty and fun, and "Margaritas" in Punta De Minta is a great little place right on the beach. This is a place we will continue to come back to no question. I miss our evening family walks on the secluded beach, the morning and evening surfs, and the warm and friendly staff. I almost forgot. We loved Mila, the German Sheppard and the two adorable cats. It is a special place!

Almost private Surf Spot. Great accommodations!
The Punta de Burros community is an excellent get-away-from-it-all location. The surf break is getting more crowded every year. It was a local's spot 5+ years ago. This trip I noticed that surfers were arriving by boat since access has always been limited.
Anyway, the beach itself was empty. The flat reef reaches all the way to the beach so you have use of the booties if you want to walk out far enough to swim. The reef is not sharp but sandy, smooth, flat tops.
House and casitas are very comfortable, clean and well appointed with great decoration and design. The patios and lounge areas are perfect for R&R. Palm shaded; sun if you want. Beach towels and toys are provided and/or available.
I will definitely come back and recommend this location as not only unique and luxurious but a great value as well.

magical wonderland
We already own property in Sayulita and decided to 'get away' to Casa Lilia at Selvatica for a change of pace. It was magical, comfortable and unique. The space is spotless, first class with beautiful personal touches. There are many little surprises that I won't talk about - discover it for yourselves. It is situated in a 'jungle' on a pristine beach with giant surf the days we were there. We always enjoy watching crashing surf and surfers tearing through the waves and we were not disappointed. No one was on the entire beach but ourselves. We were enthralled from sunrise to sunset - what a view! Punta Burro is a safe, small gated community with beautiful homes - how nice that we could be part of that for a period of time.

We were greeted by the manager who showed us around the property, the organic gardens and even gave us some limes off the trees and lettuce out of the gardens. Even if you already live in Puerto Vallarta area you owe it to yourselves to detune and enjoy the peacefulness and sound of the surf. We are not the 'condo' type so this was right up our alley. Enjoy!

Heaven on Earth
This is the most amazing property. It has everything you could ever what and more. We stayed there for 3 weeks. We were going to split it up but we ending up staying at Casa Selvatica for the whole 3 weeks and I am so so happy we did. It was my husband and I and our 3 boys. My older son stayed in one of the villa's and we stayed in the house. I can not even tell you how amazing this house is. Lori has a gardener Able that looks after the property 3 times a week. He is amazing!! She also has a house keeper that comes 6 days a week her name is Jovana. I loved have her keeping the place so so nice and clean. It gave me a chance to really take a brake and spend time on the beach with my boys. The property manager Pablo went out of his way to help us with anything we needed. The beach is amazing, right outside your door. My husband and boys surfed everyday. I felt like a queen there. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. I will be booking a month next time for sure. I am so happy I have found my Forever Family vacation destination.
Lori has 2 dogs and a cat. We loved having them with us. They made us feel really safe. My youngest son who is 4 does not like dogs at all but Lori's dogs were so amazing my son loved them. He is not afraid of dogs anymore. I was not concerned to have them around my son which is something because I worry about children and dogs but Lori's dogs are so chill. Must be the ocean air. The house is one of the most unique houses I have ever seen. Made with so much love. The pictures and video of the property do it no justice ….don't get me wrong the pictures are beautiful but the house is so amazing that it is hard to capture it's beauty. I can't wait to go back. The property is so amazing. We can't believe how blessed we were to find it.

Wonderful Spot
This was my fourth trip to the are and my first stay at Casa Selvatica. The place is clean, comfortable, charming, and very close to surf. Lori and her staff were very helpful. Lori is more than happy to set you up with locals for surf, SUP, or snorkeling tours.

The architecture of the place is very unique and beautiful. The grounds have a variety of interesting plants and beautiful flowers. It's the best of both the beach and jungle experience (I stayed in a more remote area once and had to contend with some flipflop stealing jungle crabs. This place has all the scenery without so many meddlesome creatures!)

We rented a car as we have friends in the area and have a few other surf breaks we like to visit, but if you opt for the chef service, no car is needed.

I love visiting this area in late spring to early summer. The temperatures are in 80's (water temps in the low to mid 70's) so the weather isn't too hot. Casa Selvatica gets a nice breeze up on the hill and the two back houses are perfectly shaded should you find yourself ready for a cool nap after a day at the beach.

Casa Buena Suerte was perfect for our group of 3. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to stay here again.

Third Stay in Paradise!
We just returned from our wonderful week at your lovely Casa. My husband's and my third visit but the first for the other 3 couples who joined us. Everyone had a great time and were delighted with the accommodations. We all got into the kick-back-and-relax spirit and we hardly left the property. Why leave paradise?

We absolutely adored Chef Octavio and his wife Allie ... he's an incredible chef. We dined like royalty. Best of all were their great smiles - they got right into the craziness of our group (Mousetrap Reunion aka Ratones) ... complete with them donning mouse ears. Each meal was better than the next. We adored both of them. We hired them for both lunch and dinner - what a wise decision! Fresh fish - mango margaritas - incredible desserts! Yummy!

We also had incredible whale watching right from the patios- so much activity.

Again, we were delighted to be able to enjoy your place. Can't wait to book our next trip! Muchas Gracias to Lori and her team!
