  • 5 of 5

We started our vacation in Sayulita for a family reunion and stayed in a very big/ nice house there. We had a few extra days and decided to check out Chacala for the surfing. This place is amazing and so much better than Sayulita's house!!! We have stayed in VBRO/ Airbnb's all over the world-- and this may be the nicest one yet. Immaculately clean and well cared for, views that don't stop, tons of space and all around wonderful living. We were a single family, but it could easily host 2 families. Filipe and Maggie take amazing care of the place (and make sure that Maggie cooks for you-- Maggie's cooking and the spectacular view from the dining room, really can't be beat.) It is a hike to the beach-- 15 mins down, 20 mins up or 8 min drive to town-- which means that you need to plan your trips to the beach but the villa is so nice, we ended up staying there much more so than we normally would. Living room is spectacular-- great place to read, play games or have drinks. We didn't eat in town but preferred to cook at villa-- much nicer. Surfing was great-- rented a panga at the marina-- and my husband and boys surfed for 2-3 hours every morning at a good left break with only 3-4 other surfers.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Carolyna is located off the beaten path but has every amenity. Incredible cliff top views overlooking the ocean. Spectacular sunsets sitting in the pool. A 5 min ride or 10min walk to the beach. The home is spacious with large indoor/outdoor kitchen, dining and living areas and well separated rooms with large beds and nice bathrooms. The WiFi works great and there aren't issues with electricity, plumbing, hot water, etc. The town of Chacala is a great get away. Good restaurants with friendly staff but almost no foreigners. And the beach is long, wide and clean with a sandy bottom that stretches out into the water. The moderate surf is fun to play in but the bay is still calm for swimming and floating. When you have had enough of the town you can quickly return to your retreat where you can relax by the pool and observe everything happening from above. There are even chef services for dinner at home. If you want more action or surfing, Sayulita is just a 40min away. It's a magical place.

Phenominal Trip!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with friends at Villa Carolyna and had an absolute blast. The views are outstanding, the accommodations are very spacious and the service was top notch. The beach nearby is gorgeous and was never crowded and there are several great nearby restaurants. I would highly recommend Villa Carolyna to anyone looking for a more authentic Mexican vacation.

Paradise on the Cliff

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent an amazing week at Villa Carolyna over the holidays. To quote my husband, we felt like a cartel family perched on the hill in our lavish compound. It was quite an experience! From making the initial reservations with Catherine (who was very helpful and friendly) to the airport drop off service by Felipe, we experienced top notch service that convinced us all to come back soon.

Our group was comprised of six adults and three children and the house was so spacious that we had plenty of room to hang out together or have our own space. The building itself is a work of art. There are so many interesting construction aspects to admire. The neighborhood was lovely and the views from the house were amazing; the common areas, the infinity pool and each room looked out over the ocean. It was fun to watch the sunsets from a variety of porches. We also had epic games of hide and seek on the spacious grounds. We really enjoyed picking up groceries in town and then cooking at home. The kitchen had everything we needed to create great meals. One night Maggie cooked flautas for my niece's birthday dinner. They were delicious and we were shocked by how affordable Maggie's magnificent services were. As mentioned in previous reviews, both Maggie and Felipe were outstanding. They were so friendly and helpful. They anticipated our needs and spoiled us.

We loved everything about this incredible house. It was very difficult to leave! It truly had to be seen in person; words can't describe what a special place it is.

Love at first sight.

I cannot find enough words to describe what a fabulous home this is. My family and I found it difficult to leave. Felipe and Maggie treated us wonderfully. My daughters are already planning their return with friends.

This place is a dream! I had a friend try to explain it to me, and he couldn't. You have to be here to experience it, and villa carolyna is the place.
