Space 1,400 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Three kingsized bedrooms, three bathrooms, on the beach.

Casa Kiara in Sayulita, is a charming, completely private, casual beach house. Steps away from the sand at the quiet North end of Sayulita, it boasts indoor and outdoor living at its best. Palapas and infinity pool, nestled amongst the tropical landscaping, create a little oasis. A quick cab ride, or 15/20 minute walk into town along the road, or the beach, makes it just far enough away from the maddening crowd.

Take a jog or mountain bike ride through the jungle path right next door, or wander over to the next completely deserted beaches. Enjoy exquisite sunsets and the sound of the waves at your front door. Allow the jungle sounds to soothe you to sleep, and the pounding waves to greet your dawn.

Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Washer, dryer and maid service is included.

About Sue-Ann MacCara

Our family currently resides in North Vancouver, Canada. We purchased Casa Kiara to escape Vancouver's sometimes rainy greys! We love the flavour of Mexico, with its vibrant culture and beautiful people.

Sue-Ann MacCara purchased this house in 2013

Why Sue-Ann MacCara chose Nayarit

We fell in love with Sayulita the minute we arrived there. We purchased Casa Kiara after the first time we stayed in Sayulita. It was a perfect fit for our dream of living on the beach in retirement one day. It is unpretentiously adorable, like Sayulita itself, and fits our casual and easy-going way of life. I am from South Africa originally and the tropical birds, palm trees, wildlife and landscaping reminds me a lot of my childhood. The town of Sayulita is safe, friendly, bustling with just the right amount of shops, restaurants, vendors and helpful people.

What makes this house unique

The thatched roofs, infinity pool steps from the sand, casual out door living, and the fact that it is far enough from the maddening crowd, yet still very much part of a community, made us fall in love with our adorable little home away from home.

Property was exactly as described - fun open air location. It's right on the beach and has everything you'd need for vacation. Property manager was very responsive and helpful.

Tropical Beacfront Paradise Getaway Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

For many years, we have been coming to Sayulita and travelling throughout Mexico. Casa Kiara is the best rental accomodation we have had. We wanted oceanfront, with pool as we do not often feel comfortable any more swimming in the ocean in Sayulita. What sets Casa Kiara apart from many of the other places we have stayed is the work the owners have done and are continuing to do to upgrade and maintain this lovely property. What sets it head and shoulders above all is the generosity of the owners: an abundance of everything you need, such as water, towels, beach chairs & toys; a kettle; A teapot! Nothing is locked up, so if you need to do laundry, or sweep the floor or decks yourself, you can do that. I hope all their renters will appreciate their trust and generosity.

Certainly there are many grander, more luxurious places along the Pacfic Coast, but few as private, unique and cared for within walking distance to a lovely, lively pueblo. There are places where you will be pampered to within an inch of your life, but few where there is ... Enough, and no more.

Finally, because of the comfort and welcome, we spent most of our time at home, going into Sayulita once a day. No more was needed on this last leg of a long road trip, but to sit on the pool deck, with a book, looking up occasionally to ponder the waves as they crashed upon the shore beneath us.

Awesome home away from home in Sayuilta!!!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Kiara is a wonderful hidden gem just outside of Sayulita. We are a family of 2 teens & a 9 year old. Perfect location - close enough to walk to town - yet far enough out of the hustle & bustle of it all. Loved the space the home gave us - great kitchen, beach chairs & umbrella for the beach were key. This home is not for everyone - but we really loved it & it was great for us. The ocean is LOUD and adds to the character. Eric is the local house manager and fantastic for everything. Then town is awesome with many delicious restaurants & great to walk around. Nice surf break to the left of the house with the proper tides (other than that its unsurfable-shore break & not for people that are not strong swimmers). Overall, the house is a rustic jungle like treasure! We hope to be back someday!

Girls birthday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this amazing home the end of September for my girlfriends 60th birthday. We both brought our daughters and had the best time. Perfect time of year. Quiet town and awesome thunder/ lightning storms every night. The weather was perfect for lounging by the pool. The kitchen is well stocked and perfect! Location is great! A lovely little 10 minute walk either on the beach or road. We love Sayulita and this home! We will definetly be back! Thank you Sue- Ann for providing a great space to just relax!

This is actually the first time that I have ever taken the time to write a review. I am not sure why that is but I know why I am choosing Casa Kiara to be the first for a review from me. The place is amazing and exactly what we were looking for. As our son said “ You guys have really set the bar high with this place. Thank you for booking this place.” Those words were spoken within 15 mins of being at Casa Kiara as after we dropped our stuff and all ran into the ocean. Our group consisted of my wife and I, our two children (son 14) Daughter (17) and yes, our daughters (18) year old boyfriend. We wanted to make sure that it was a great trip as Mexico and this region is very special to us as my wife and I have been heading to PV since I was 17 and wife has been coming to PV since she was born. I fell in love with charm since that first trip in 1989, We have seen the area change so much and that is what brought us to Sayulita for part of this trip. I wanted “old school” beach town for our daughter and her BF. We also love to be on an adventure and when I saw this home on-line, I knew it was the place for us.

The stay was amazing. We loved it. Every moment of it. My wife is always worried about bugs, and there was some, but not bad. We lucked out considering our stay began July 3rd with the weather as it can be really hot this time of year but it was perfect. We had the best time playing card games around the table, making quesadillas and chorizo con huevo, daughters BF teaching my wife how to play beer pong on the deck, swimming at night in the pool, hiking next to the house, body surfing steps from the pool. It was great. So fun that we realized later that we did not even use the beach chairs that the owner is nice enough to leave on the sand.

The town is great. We have been all over Mexico and this one is really towards the top of the list. Great plaza, great restaurants, , fun rock cliffs to go jump off. I would like to BS and say that we didn’t have a great time at Casa Kiara because like a good band, you sort of want to keep it to yourself, however I can not do that with good conscious. The owner was very gracious and her place is amazing. I hope the prices do not go up drastically as it was a reasonable price at the time. I hope she offers return visitors discounts ;-) as we plan to return hopefully sooner than later. All 5 of us had a blast and daughters BF said that it was the best vacation that he has ever been on.

Paradise in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just returned from Casa Kiara on July 15th. We booked this house after reading the outstanding reviews.

The house exceeded our expectations from the moment we walked in. It's location is truly the best in Sayulita, situated on the north end of the beach, which means privacy!

It's a bit of a walk to the town center, but it's a great work out. If we went to town twice in a day, we'd taxi back for 60 pesos(plus tip) which was awesome. We ended up renting a golf cart for the last few days which wasn't necessary but a blast for our boys (16 and 12). That was their highlight.

The house is very open, which means you need your bug spray and mosquito nets up at night. I thought this would be a problem for me, but you get used to it and just prepare yourself. I read it one review that the ocean was too loud to sleep and I thought I would love a loud ocean. But it is VERY loud. Again after the first couple of nights I got used to it. Again... It's the ocean!!! :)

The view is absolutely the best ever. From morning to night, it was stunning. World class sunsets. Each sunset the Cicadas sound their warning. Our first night we thought an alarm was going off! So magical.

The town is cool and has a relaxed vibe. Safe for Mexico standards. It was fun to go each day to shop for food and people watch. Not a fan of the crowded beach and it seemed a bit polluted. Again making us grateful for our distance from the crowd. The boys loved Choco Banana for their daily treat and we loved the Public House for our daily Happy Hour Margarita (When we asked when happy hour was, the owner said 'now'). We didn't eat out at any restaurant even though I we heard amazing things about them. We lived on fresh mango, avocado and nachos ... Heaven.

The staff was awesome. Abraham cleaned outside and the pool each day and taught us a few Spanish words. He is a sweet soul! We wanted to hire him back in Canada. Eric the manager was helpful and always prompt in answering our questions (instant reply!). Gladys was so sweet.

The owner, Sue-Ann was so helpful from start to finish. She gave us some tips before we left, like using VIP transportation from the airport which gave us an awesome start to our vacation. All the staff spoke so highly of her that you just know she's a lovely lady.

Since being home I've been sharing my photos with anyone that will look! We will definitely be back!

Casa Kiara is one of the few stand alone beach houses in Sayulita. Surfing and stand up paddling available a short walk down the beach. It is far enough away from the busy crowd, but close enough if you like that. Be sure to take a catamaran trip with Allycat Adventures to the Mariettas Islands, hike through the jungle right next door, enjoy dining for well under $10 from the local taco vendors, or finer dining at your leisure. There are fabulous yoga options, fun boutique shopping, lots of jewelry shops, art vendors, but then you might just want to relax by the pool and sip margaritas!
