Soft is a word I use to describe Cariza, everyone should at one time walk up the entrance and enter the front door to start enjoying Cariza as gifts. The decoration is beautiful bringing forth old Mexican art work for the floors and walls. Climb the stairs and the comfort begins, a lovely kitchen to serve from, an indigenous wood dinning table to serve meals, large enough for family and guests. Then settle into comfortable chairs and couches with interesting views looking both ways.
But, what makes it all work is a lovely team (Victor) the gardener, (Victor Jr.) the maintenance man and Lopita, a hands on great keeper of the house and when evening descends it's just a little distance to many wonderful eating places.
Our time at Cariza is so enjoyable. We like the mornings watching the sunrise over Banderas Bay and listening to the birds chatting and sometimes screaming their presence. In the evenings we see wonderful sunsets from the other side of the house, and later enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub watching the lights and boats on the bay.
Casa Cariza exceeded all of our expectations even before we toured the entire home. It was stunning walking through the main entrance. We were a party of 10 adults traveling and, would all agree, that Casa Cariza is a special place! We were greeted warmly by the staff - Socoro, Sahid (who is a talented chef) and Victor. We can't imagine needing anything more than what was offered at Casa Cariza. It has the golf course view on one side and Banderas Bay on the other. We had two golf carts that were very convenient. We would love to plan another vacation back to Punta Mita and hope to stay at Casa Cariza again!
This was our third booking at Casa Cariza and we can't wait to return. The villa is spectacular from the moment you step foot in the exotic entry to when the taxi returns you to reality. We were 4 couples who were able to relax by the pool or jump on the golf carts to a multitude of adventures. The villa had everything we needed to take advantage of our precious vacation time. Space to find solitude but comfortable for all of us gathered for sunset dinners. Each suite has its own personality with beautiful furnishings that have been chosen specifically for the space. The baths are luxurious and we particularly loved the outdoor showers after a day at sea. The staff took great care in our comfort and the owners were there when needed (not often as our trip was smooth). Casa Cariza is located in the perfect spot for quick runs to the village or to the beach clubs, golf, tennis and restaurants within the Punta Mita community. Thank you for hosting us at your beautiful home and we will see you next year!
We had an incredible experience at Casa Cariza over Christmas week. We were lucky enough to spend time as a family celebrating my parent's 50th anniversary. We were 6 adults and 5 children. The house was wonderful. Plenty of room to stretch out, be together and also space to find some solitude. Sylvia, Victor and the rest of the crew took amazing care of all of us. We can't wait to go back!
We had the best time at Casa Cariza! Thanks for all your suggestions.
We took surfing lessons with the guys from Tranquillo at La Lancha. They were really good instructors.
We all did the Vallarta Outdoor Adventure...from the boat ride, mule ride to zip lining and rappelling..it was really a great day!
We beach clubbed it at the St. Regis and PM Beach Club..golfed..had ping pong tournaments by the pool at the Casa.
Your house is incredible and it was such a treat to stay there. Our kids were really impressed.
I agree with the first two reviews that the photos of Casa Cariza do not do it justice. This is a total luxury experience! The bedroom suites are large, beautifully decorated and very private. The living areas are great, with an open air design and superb views and the cocktail pool is fantastic. There's a gourmet kitchen and large outdoor grill, so dining in is always an option. But there's also several great restaurants both within the resort walls and in the little beach town of Punta Mita right next door. The Punta Mita resort is totally first class and very safe. The golf courses, beach clubs and other amenities are all outstanding. I can highly recommend Casa Cariza for golf trips, retreats and getaways, or for family vacations. Whether you have young kids, teenagers or adult children, there's something for everyone. Great place to relax and have fun. We'll be back again next year!
