About the property

Brand New Designer Home - Oceanview & Heated Pool

Casa Carino is a part of the luxury vacation rental complex called "Dreamer Circle" in the Pacific Heights Area of Sayulita, the most sought after location in town. Designed by Sayulita's most famous architect, Miguel Valverde, who built and designed Casa Paloma, Casa Sonadora and Villa Colina - all next to Casa Carino. (He also designed and built a house for the President of Mexico!) Casa Carino is a truly special luxury home for the discriminating vacationer in Sayulita's best neighborhood and the closest to the beach and town plaza.

A total and complete remodel was just completed. The original house was gutted and additional stories are being added. Please viewVRBO Listing #5885 or VRBO Listing #440595 to see the quality of homes that this owner and architect have built! 2 bedroom suites plus another convertible TV/Bedroom with adjoining bathroom. There is 1 king bed, 1 queen bed and convertible luxury king couch bed. There are 2 outdoor showers. This wonderful property has amazing ocean views, a heated pool, tropical landscaping and yet only two blocks from Sayulita's town center and main beach.

This is a perfect property for a couple, a family, or two families with a couple of kids. (MAX 3 couples, 1 kid and 1 infant)

The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens which provide uncommon beauty and serenity. The views of the hills, and village are exquisite. The home is furnished with incredible art and furnishings and every single detail of this home is thoroughly considered to grant you a very pleasing aesthetic.

Casa Carino is the 4th Sayulita house created by the owners and this is their favorite - the place that they stay when they come to Sayulita.

At Casa Carino, you can enjoy the essence of Sayulita, Mexico. The atmosphere here is that of a small, friendly, fishing village in an exotic natural setting. The perfect, peaceful setting to relax and enjoy Sayulita's unique beauty.

About Dennis Duff

My wife, Joan, and I, Dennis, live most of the time in an area frequently referred to as the northern tip of the wine country in California, just above Napa Valley. I sold my Internet Marketing Company, my wife wound down her successful art business and we started buying property in beautiful Sayulita. We are semi-retired now, but still manage to keep busy with all our real estate projects, investments and family. We travel quite a bit together and with our two married daughters and their husbands and their growing families. One of our daughters is a successful Interior Architect in Los Angles who is married to an entrepreneur who is the majority owner and CEO of a major software company. The other daughter is an occupational therapist, whose husband is a Director of Photography for numerous TV shows. We are an active group. We all love to ski, hike, scuba dive, surf, bike, boat, ride motorcycles, and hang out together in beautiful environments. We are grandparents now with both daughters and are thoroughly enjoying this delightful new addition to our lives.

Dennis Duff purchased this villa in 2015

Why Dennis Duff chose Nayarit

This property is right next door to two of our other properties - Casa Sonadora and Villa Colina and is a perfect compliment to both of those. It has great ocean views, is just steps from the beach and town center and has a great tropical feeling.

What makes this villa unique

The location of Casa Carino is super convenient. I love being close to town, the beach and everything that is going on..........You can walk everywhere. A car is definitely not needed.

The house is very comfortable with adequate indoor and outdoor living space, great views and a nice heated pool.

Casa Carino

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. I think the main thing we could say about it was the fact that we could feel how well taken care of we were. Clearly well managed and very tastefully appointed and decorated. We love Sayulita and Casa Carino was perfect to enjoy it. We could hang in the house or walk a few minutes to beach or town center. And there are an amazing number of good restaurants in a very small - and walking distance - space. Highly recommend it.

Didn't want to leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to this wonderful place for a much-needed getaway, now we can't wait to go back and bring the whole family. Where to start? The house is extremely comfortable, well thought out to provide all practical needs. But it's the extras we loved--how beautiful the décor is, the art throughout the place, every detail to delight the eye. Then there's the location--we sat on lounge chairs around the pool, surrounded by tropical gardens, watching the waterfall into the pool, sipping margaritas looking out a the fabulous ocean view. Heaven! Speaking of views, there are knockout views throughout the house, from the living area, bedrooms, and romantic rooftop sitting area. All this just a two block easy walk from the beach and from one of the most vibrant, charming towns anywhere, with great restaurants and shops and lively local events. Can you tell how much we loved it? Can't recommend it highly enough.

The Perfect Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I can't remember the last time I had such an extraordinary vacation/retreat. Our 7 days was filled with some of the best food we have ever had and a home that was so beautifully and creatively furnished. We relaxed, enjoyed the night life, walked the gorgeous beaches every day. For someone who often does not take time to truly "drop out," this is the perfect place to do just that. I am going to make this an annual retreat!

My wife and I seldom write reviews regarding our vacation experiences - but this vacation home demands an exception! She & I arrived with 2 or our closest friends on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon to be ferried to our favorite vacation spot, Sayulita and a new house that we had not yet visited. This began a week of total relaxation a in a home that surrounds you with art that attracts the eye and refreshes the mind. Downtown is a short walk away and the beach is similarly close. But it was hard not to simply stay at home where a pool is fed by a cascading waterfall and where the views are simply exceptional. The entire staff was always available to answer any question or fulfill any request. Naps on the covered rooftop were a mainstay of the days spent in this quiet village by the sea and we will certainly return to this chosen home again and again. Thanks to Dennis & Joan for creating the best possible oasis for anyone's visit to Sayulita..

Gorgeous new vacation paradise in vivacious Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 just returned from perhaps the best vacation we've had in years and the houses we stayed in made it perfect. I took my whole family there to celebrate my 70th birthday and the vacation was a dream come true. Villa Carino is a brand new house that overlooks the town with brilliant views of the ocean, beach and north coast of this Mexican riviera. We stayed there and our grown children and grandchildren stayed in Villa Colina next door. Everything about these houses is first rate. The beds are fabulously comfortable. The houses are filled with beautiful Mexican art, fabrics and pottery. Both houses are located in gardens filled with the vivid plants of the region and the caretakers for the houses are discreetly there is make sure everything stays in tip top shape. Best of all is the location... So close to town and the beach but also a secluded, private retreat for reading and relaxing. The owners provide information and services to hire transportation to and from the airport in American SUV's with responsible drivers. Through them we hired cooks for 3 nights and loved the family that cooked for us. The prices were reasonable and the food delicious. Sayulita is a very lively town and I enjoyed the town noises and the music that floated up to us in the evening. The kids spent half their time in the two pools and the other half on the beach. We could easily walk to town for breakfast and shopping. One concern for people with limited mobility is that the houses are on top of a hill and I found that great cardio exercise, but I am sure the solution to that would be to hire a golf cart to get around ... A route many people choose. We had a great time and are counting the days until we can return. Thank you Dennis and Kathleen for providing such a beautiful place to make vacations come true.
