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 Sayulita

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.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carino is a fantastic property located on a small hill on the south side of town. It is an easy 3-5 minute walk down a really nice, winding path to town and the beach. The town can be noisy at night, but the bedrooms at Casa Carino are well sound proofed. We never heard a thing. The rooftop deck has great views and the pool area is private and secluded. Overall we had a great experience at the house and love the location.

Spectacular property and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property. It was recently redone and is like new. The artwork and decor was very impressive as well. It was a short walk down the hill to the beach and downtown area and we realized that a golf cart was not necessary as the walk through the landscaped path was very enjoyable. The air conditioning in every room made the house very comfortable. The pool was also very nice and utilized every day. Ernesto was very responsive to our call when the power went out due to work the local utilities dept was doing. He met us onsight when we arrived, walked us through the property and arranged all of our ground transport which was flawless. Anna, our housekeeper was also spectacular and thorough in her work. The nightime festivities in town were not noticeable when the doors were closed. My four teenager daughters were unanimous in that this was among the top, if not the top vacation we've had. The accommodations certainly contributed to a fantastic experience. When we go back to Salyulita we will absolutely want to stay at one of Dennis' properties. We are lucky to have found him and them! Until we see you again Salyulita and Casa Carino.

Thanks for sharing your slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our jaws dropped when we arrived. The perfectly manicured gardens, the crystal-clear pool, the palapa roofed architecture, and the privacy were just what we needed for a perfect vacation. We were nervous to even go, as we heard many reports of norovirus running through Sayulita. But upon check-in, Ernesto (who was so responsive, if we needed anything!) reassured us with a list of safe restaurants to visit and reminded us that the daily housekeepers clean thoroughly with bleach, the house has a filtration water system along with purified drinking water, and we also used the poolside grill and beautiful kitchen for cooking at home. Needless to say, we ate well and didn't get sick! We were also nervous about going during Semana Santa (holy week) as we heard that the town becomes inundated with masses of people. Yes, there were lots of people, but we found everyone to be so friendly, it was just one big fiesta. We especially enjoyed all the mariachi bands throughout town and were so relieved to learn that, thanks to the triple-paned windows, we couldn't hear the noise from inside the house. The walk to town and the beach was down a short, beautifully landscaped path--so close--we even felt comfortable letting our teenage boy head to town by himself for little shopping/taco indulging sprees. Overall, we learned that splurging a little more to stay in a high-quality vacation rental, such as one of these Dreamer Circle Properties, can mean the difference between a perfect vacation and a sleepless nightmare. We can't wait to go back!!

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!
