Welcome to CASA PACIFICA. Be captivated by the tranquility and lush tropical gardens of your secluded 'jungle' oceanfront paradise with ocean view and eco-friendly UV pool. A few minutes walk through green foliage and palms brings you to the waves at hidden Carricitos Beach, a little known secret. Only 6 blocks from Sayulita's 'town' but it feels like a million miles away. Casa Pacifica is just 6 blocks south, past Villa Amor and Muertos Beach, about the same distance to Sayulita town/main surfing beach as from the north end of town.
Three private suites allow you to take advantage of sunny days, expansive vistas of jungle, ocean and beach with soothing sounds of breaking surf. They can be rented individually or combined together for either 1 bedroom or 3 bedroom options. Very few homes dot this protected ecological preserve amidst tall swaying palms, tropical plants and flowers. We are part of the largest forest in Mexico. Ocean views let you watch whales spout and dolphins at play. Not only do you have full sunsets, even in winter, but enjoy the elusive 'green flash' when the sun slips into the ocean.
This is a nature lover's paradise. Enjoy the vibrant colored butterflies, hummingbirds, parrots, warblers, chachalacas, frigates and pelicans as well as the scented gardens of plumeria and jasmine. Pick ripe mangoes, bananas, and papayas from the garden when in season. Enjoy walking through multi-colored heliconia and ginger under canopies of 50' palms. Even when indoors you feel part of the outdoor landscape amidst the five spacious terraces and walls of tall glass doors and windows.
The BEACH VIEW SELF-CONTAINED BUNGALOW is partially open-air with air conditioning in the bedroom/sitting area. A grand 38'x13' palapa covers and cools the main living and dining area and offers spectacular ocean and surf views. The ocean-view king bedroom with its sitting area is fully enclosed with arched, screened-in wooden doors. The main entry is through arched, double wooden doors with high sculpted walls.
The bungalow's kitchen is fully stocked with the basics including large refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, blender, juicer, microwave and gourmet cookware & spices. Grill fresh, locally caught seafood on your personal gas Baby Weber BBQ. You will appreciate the details including the bathroom's double sink basins painted by the same artist to match his hand painted tropical waterfall design in the stone studded shower. The indoor-outdoor bathroom is very private, yet with a dramatic ocean view while showering. We supply ice for those cool, frothy drinks. If you are looking for a romantic tuck-away you will feel a special connectedness to nature, a sensual treat along with the design, color and lighting of the bungalow for those special evenings.
The SPACIOUS, MAIN LEVEL OF THE VILLA has a 1-king bedroom, 1 bath with double sinks and an open-air kitchen which can be fully enclosed with tall bifold glass doors. There is a palapa exterior over the bar. The stunning 2-l/2 story livingroom palapa 'ceiling' keeps you cool all year round. A tastefully designed tropical jungle theme is carried throughout. The livingroom can be fully enclosed with screen and glass doors which spill out westward onto a large terrace for outdoor dining, entertaining and sunning. The livingroom's north side has large sliding glass wood frame doors which open up to your 'private' tropical garden area.
It includes a comfortable lounge area which is a screened-in room under its own, separate, 25' tall palapa roof with unobstructed views overlooking the surf. Besides curling up here during the day and reading you just might want to sleep here in the evening on its comfy king 'bed' instead of the air-conditioned bedroom inside the villa. The main level and penthouse suites are rented together and accommodate up to 4 guests total in 2 separate bedrooms with 2 baths on two separate levels. When combined with the bungalow the entire villa can sleep a total of 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, 3 baths on three separate levels.
The airy, large PENTHOUSE SUITE, mostly glass amid the canopy treetops, feels like a 'bird's nest'. It has a king size bed, full bath with double travertine sinks and 2 ocean view sun terraces. One terrace has a sun palapa and the other has a large pergola covering the dining/kitchen area. The unit's main ceiling has two, unique, curved brick ceilings designed by a local Huichol artisan who laid each brick one at a time from the corners.
Each level has its own private entrance and stairway. It is an ideal vacation for one couple, family, or friends as everyone has their own PRIVATE area. We love art and Mexico's unique tropical architectural details - we hope you enjoy the experience our house provides. Several bathrooms have whimsically embedded custom glass-tiled artwork on the shower floors. One bathroom has an onxy sink with a glass waterfall faucet over 'beach glass' with its theme carried into the shower area. Another shower has a large custom jungle/waterfall tile design with custom matching sinks by a local artisan.
For your comfort and convenience we include an in-house massage therapist for only $l0/hr. US and yoga mats. Each suite has high thread count cotton sheets and towels, Sealy Posturpedic beds, assorted pillows, beach towels, boogie boards, kayaks, beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, a WAVE surfboard, quality cookware, personal gas fired Baby WEBER BBQs, gourmet spices and a vegetable juicer as well as a citrus juicer. A Pelican water purification system with salt-free water softner and UV will keep your skin soft after a day out in the sun and salt air. Please note we are a non-smoking villa. If you are interested in organic food items we can stock your fridge at no additional charge.
We also have air conditioning all suites, North American Satelite TV (main villa only), WiFi, CD, DVD player (large library), iPod dock, free phone incoming/outgoing to US and Canada and free local phone. So relax, soak in the ambiance...listen to the sounds of the sea. Enjoy Sayulita town but you'll be happy to return to the romantic, tranquil, private atmosphere of CASA PACIFICA.
Our main home is in San Diego, California. We live on the premises in our garden casita during the season. We've always enjoyed camping in Baja and the mainland of Mexico searching for perfect waves, beaches and the great hospitality and culture of the Mexican people. We sailed down here a few times and enjoy the area with its many tuck-aways bays to anchor. We especially like the rustic, 'toes in the sand' restaurants with cold beer and margaritas. The whole Nayarit coast to San Blas has wonderful little places to discover; San Pancho (3 miles north), Lo De Marco (l2 miles north), Chacala (22 miles north) - what Sayulita used to be like l5 years ago and of course those wonderfu market days in La Penita on Thursdays and La Cruz de Huanaxale on Sundays at the marina.
We have searched for exactly this spot: on the waterfront, in a special jungled paradise, away from the world yet close enough to a small town 1l kilometer) and only 45 minutes (20 miles) to Central Puerto Vallarta. We love Mexico; the art, architecture, culture, the warm generous spirit of the Mexican people. Before coming here we lived in the Caribbean for l0 years and ran a sailboat charter boat, 65' VERANO SIN FINAL. After that sojourn we were delighted to find this spot while spending a year traveling through all of Mexico once again, wondering if we had missed anything...yes and then FOUND IT. We enjoy fresh fish and this town is a fishing village, very laid back. Surfing has been a part of our lives and it is fun to have breakfast on the beach and watch the early morning surfers. We have wonderful yet 'hidden' neighbors - so what could be better?
PRIVACY & TRANQUILITY. Watching the sailboats, whales, and dolphins while relaxing on the terraces. We enjoy putting in the 2 kayaks and traveling to remote beaches. We found white coral sand and coral reefs south of our area so now we feel we have part of the Caribbean with us.
