It's all about Privacy and Beauty! No neighbors, above, below and or beside you. If tropical privacy, peaceful quiet, romance, and/or spiritual rejuvenation is what you are looking for Casa Carricitos can be your personal paradise. Let's face it, as charming as Sayulita is, it can be loud. At Casa Carricitos you can escape from the discos, and roosters,and come home to the sound of the ocean and Nature. Our home is a romantic hand-crafted casa, located on 2.5 acres with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. From anywhere on the property you can watch spectacular sunsets 365 days a year. We can confidently say that this house has the most incredible views on this portion of the coastline. Whales and dolphins are frequently seen and heard from both houses.
Nature surrounds you with swaying palms, tropical birds, and butterflys. The sweeping views take in Monkey Mountain, the palapas of Haramara Yoga Retreat Center, Punta Mita (a distant peninsula) and the sand and waves of Carricitos Beach below.
We lovingly call it 'stare therapy' as in: sit and just stare. The landscape appears to be constantly changing; the waves, the sounds, the light, the winds in the palms.....or a five minute walk thru the jungle will take you to your own secluded beach.
Carricitos Beach is a half mile from the Plaza in Sayulita and is located in an ecological preserve that is part of the largest tropical forest in Mexico. The only sounds you hear from the property are the sounds of Nature and waves upon the shore. The beach below the house is secluded enough to allow European style sunbathing, with descretion.
This property is a bird watchers mecca, with over 70 species seen in the surrounding jungle. If surfing is your thing, you can check the swell size, direction and wind from Sayulita to Punta Mita from the deck.
Yet surprisingly, you're just minutes by car from the quaint village of Sayulita, Mexico. A dirt road leads you through beautiful jungle past Los Muertos Beach and up the hill to Casa Carricitos.
MAIN HOUSE: As you pull up the driveway the view is hidden by the house but as you step through the front door a sweeping view of the ocean, mountains, jungle and beaches greet your eyes. The main house has been decorated with an Asian flare, Balinese ikats, Thai silks, Buddhas,art, artifacts and more.
It is serene, temple-like and comfortable. A wrap around deck has a built in Balinese style lounging bed, great for watching sunsets and stars at night. The detached Master Bedroom has a kingsize bed and a spectacular bathroom, the building is located just off the deck. The interior bedroom has a king size bed, mosquitos nets and screened windows and polished concrete style bathroom
Both bedrooms offer total privacy from each other and both have air conditioning. The detached bedroom is decorated with Tibetan and Burmese art and artifacts, and is literally breathtaking in its beauty,guests have said it is better than the Four Seasons! The living room has been designed for comfort and some couples choose to sleep there.
GUEST HOUSE: With its own private path and entry Casita Ganesha (the guest house) is its own little world. You enter into a round living and kitchen area with a palapa style roof. The bedroom and bath lie beyond. This casita with its saltillo tiles and thatched roof has Asian influence as well and you are greeted by Ganesh, the elephant who removes obstacles. You also have your own private garden terrace to lounge around or grill some fresh fish.
From the king size bed you gaze out over the tree tops and ocean and feel like you are living in the trees. There are wonderful ocean views and parrots and pelicans flying by at eye level. It is magical and refreshing. There is a tent style mosquito net around the bed and Bifold windows in the bedroom for your comfort and ease.

We traveled the world looking for the 'perfect tropical paradise' and we never found anything as beautiful as Carricitos in Sayulita. The property has the best view we have seen anywhere and we have been from Byron Bay Australia to India, Bali, Thailand..... When you walk through the doors of the house you can not help but gasp in amazement! The sunsets, whales, dolphins birds are fantastic.
As we built and remodeled the place we opted for a serene temple-like style, complete with Asian artifacts and collectors pieces.We have made a home out of a house that renews the spirit and relaxes the soul. We are so happy to read our guest book and at times it even makes us cry! Our guests get it! They become entranced by the beauty and find they do not want to even go to town. We hope you can join the numerous people who have had the chance to renew and relax at Casa Carricitos!
Cheers! Adele and Michael
We have never had an unhappy guest. if you enjoy beauty, privacy and Nature and you will love Casa Carricitos!
Privacy, Privacy, Privacy. Located on top of a hill the house has spectacular 360 views. The ocean views are incredible!
The Asian decor and setting weave a magical spell that encourages deep relaxation and renewal. After a dozen years we are still amazed by our own experience of being enchanted.
We are a four minute drive to town, a fifteen minute walk to the plaza and just far enough away from Sayulita to have peace and quiet. Morning walks thru the jungle are a treat and the beach is a five minute walk away. Sunsets and star gazing are our favorite time. Dining on the terraces has made us declare our place the the best restaurant in the area!
