OFF THE CHARTS SPECTACULAR
What a fabulous property and attention to detail. It REALLY doesn't get much better than this! Seven somewhat mature guys in for a long birthday celebration that lasted 4 nights. We couldn't have asked for a better property with top resort like amenities. The staff was outstanding and the Chef we hired (at owner Lynda's recommendation) was world class. Perhaps most importantly, everything in every room worked flawlessly.
You are totally secure in the property and development. Never, ever a worry about safety. The golf courses (2) were terrific as were the 3 private beach clubs that come with this property. Is it expensive? Well, as been said many times before it's all relative. If you're looking for a first class experience in a perfectly manicured environment, then this is the VRBO property you should choose.
For anyone selecting this property and enjoy...you will feel special.
The most luxurious mini vacation I've ever had
This is my 2nd trip to Casa Cariza. There is no way to describe the feeling you get when you first approach the house. It is something like, "Oh my GOSH, THIS is our place!?" It is a beautifully crafted, expertly decorated and wonderfully built and laid out estate. The indoor-outdoor structure, the palapa-style roof, the jacuzzi facing the Bay and the pool facing the golf course, the stunning hardwood doors, the beautiful kitchen tables...by the end of the trip I was even marveling at the color of paint in my bathroom and the placement of the light fixtures. It is a gorgeous, thought-out property, replete with a massage room, multiple outdoor eating areas, high end furniture (NOTHING screams of "rental" there -- every stick of furniture is well built, down to the chaise lounges), yummy towels, an outdoor shower in the master. Can I go on???
Beyond completely scoring with the property, the owner Lynda has a long time employee in both the chef she helps coordinate, Sahid, and the houseboy who keep the property in absolutely tip top shape, Victor, as well as the driver to-from the airport (and more if you like), Jose. These guys were all the same help we had when we first visited 2 years ago. I think that speaks to the manner of professionalism, courtesy and mutual respect in which she manages the property. She offered us multiple courtesies to our rental (that I won't get into here, but late check out as an example), that other owners would charge you for or just generally give you a hard time about. She was uber accommodating and generally chill about how she manages this multi million dollar estate. It was so appreciated.
I traveled with 10 women on this trip, 2 of us had our own rooms complete with full bath to ourselves. The rest of us shared a room -- 2 others had their own queens in 1 room and the rest of us shared a king. The beds are great, plenty of pillows, plenty of blankets, plenty of fans and/or individual a/c's in unit (ours even had a/c in the room AND in our private bathroom).
Sahid did our grocery shopping prior (which Lynda coordinated). Between grocery shopping, the drinks and guacamole awaiting us when we arrived, the stocked bar, the clean home, the warm pool, the drivers, the golf carts waiting for us, OH AND access to the St Regis Beach Club (which not all houses in PM have) -- we wanted for nothing on this trip. If you aren't booking this house by now, you are an idiot :)
Gorgeous place- Great Time
The Villa was wonderful, everything we expected and the staff was great! What a wonderful pool and the views are spectacular!
Our stay at Cariza
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.
So much more than we expected
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!
Casa Cariza is a dream villa
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!
