Cliff side retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week on a family reunion at villa Carolyn's. 7 adults in 4 bedrooms. It was the perfect way to be together but give each couple or person space. Hard to imagine getting tired of looking out at the sea, floating in the pool, with birds soaring and the bay below. But if so there is hiking, a lovely beach, boating, and maybe more we did not discover. Maggie, the lovely and capable housekeeper, discreetly made sure we had everything we needed. We had meals delivered from local restaurants--including the best snapper anyone had ever had. No one in our party was the least bit ill, thanks to purified water throughout house. Quiet and beautiful. We will be back!!

Simply the best place we ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Between the house, the views, the scenery, the sunsets, the grounds, the pool, the privacy, the birds, the food, the flora (not to mention the incredibly skilled people who care for the villa and its guests), this is an absolutely wonderful place to relax and read and think and even work in isolation. Our group of seven has already decided (to quote Schwarzenegger), WE'LL BE BACK.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for anyone who wants to relax. The village is small and peaceful so you can stay at the beautiful house all day or take the jeep to the beach/town. I also enjoyed walking to and from the beach and around the property. The staff were very helpful and polite, and had great English! I would recommend this to anyone, families, girl's trips, family vacations etc. Can't wait to go back!

Four Seasons Resort Quality with the privacy and VIEW that is unbelieveable!

  • 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.
