Great hou

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this amazing view house. The two ladies that work at the house are lovely, and quite the cooks / chefs. Breakfast was 5 stars each day. We had one big dinner in - amazing. Every morning fresh juice, platters of fresh fruit, and then you name it. Pankcakes with orange zest (?) were off the charts.

The art in the house is amazing. Owner should consider running a gallary at the house. The gardens are beatiful - and the house is perfectly maintained. Security was excellent - extensive. The house is spread out - but safe. At night, with our 4 kids, we felt SAFE.

We all love to walk and hike, so we took a pass on the golf cart rental. The stairs are awesome up to the house. Golf cart good for night time excursions - or flashlight. Parking is tough during high season, so if you can; WALK! The street up is steep; keep driving away from kids.

The beach in front of the hose is best in Sayulita. Far enough from crowds, but close to all you need. Vendors are easy going. They rent paddle boards, surfboards, all of it.

We'll be back!

Beautiful Luxury Villa

  • 5 of 5

Painted Ponies Villa is awesome.... Our group is 4 retired couples that travel on many vacations together. Only one of us had been to Sayulita before and had to suggest to the group that this would be our next destination. The pictures of this place convinced us this is where we wanted to go. I also took a tour via Facetime with the owner prior to renting . The pictures and tour were wonderful but the place is even more remarkable in person. The furnishings and the artwork are top notch. It has views are from every room, including the large functional kitchen, the tequila bar for our daily happy hour meet and while we were floating in the infinity pool!!!!

It is on a hill and provides an amazing view of the town and ocean. We saw a few night lightning storms that provided magnificent shows. The hill is steep to offer such views and serenity, (we had two of us use it for our daily stair stepper workout) but got easier every day as we walked into town.

Interestingly, we found many small markets in and around town so we did not have to depend on the Mega but ate local vegetables, fruits and meats. We just had to utilize that beautiful kitchen!

We would recommend this villa to adults who want to relax and still have the beach and active small town within walking distance

This is the place! Best villa in Sayulita, Best view!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe the view you get as you walk into this villa. I looked at all of the pictures I could find online of this house and you just can't capture the view as it really is. INCREDIBLE! Absolutely breathtaking. Sunsets go on for hours here.

Great things about this house: The Layout, the rooms are separated by the living/kitchen area, everyone has their own privacy and en suite bathrooms.

The ice maker & beverage fridge - this might seem insignificant, but it's AMAZING to have these amenities when you have a group. These are in the bar which is on the other side of the living area so when you have Arely cooking a dinner for you (highly recommend) you won't get in her way when you make cocktails and sit at the bar (on the awesome bar stools) and look at the view (favoritie activitiy!).

The beds & bedding - HIGH quality. I felt like I was at my own house. So comfortable and luxurious.

The decor! - We marveled at everything, no detail is missed and Janis has artwork that is local and interesting. I am in interior design so I notice these things and the furnishings are well chosen, beautiful, and comfortable. The chandelier in the living area is just gorgeous.

The POOL! - a must for any Mexican vacation. I think it is bromine or salt water. It's fresh, cool and no chlorine and the infinity aspect of the pool is just beautiful with the ocean as a backdrop.

The Location - From the pictures, you might think it takes a while to get to the beach. It doesn't. This house is perfectly situated at the top of a steep hill but not too far up (maybe 30 steps). Just high enough to get the fantastic view but not too high that you feel like it is a trek to get home from the beach or town. You can walk or get a golf cart (I'd recommend a golf cart for groups) but we walked too and the location just couldn't be better.

Sayulita is a wonderful town and my favorite place in Mexico these days....There is a vibrant, artistic, colorful vibe and everyone here is so friendly and happy. Janis' villa is the perfect place to stay - it's like your own luxury resort with everything you could possibly need. I own vacation rentals and I can definitely say Janis has done an outstanding job with this property and accommodating her guests. Thank you Janis!

Stunning Sayulita Luxury home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning views of the town and ocean. The pictures do not capture the spectacular views or the beauty of the house. From the moment my family walked in we were blown away. So close to the beaches and the town, both being a 3-4 minute golf cart ride away. Loved the open feeling of the main part of the house ( kitchen/dining room/living room/bar ) which naturally flows to the infinity pool area.

3 couples shared this house and never once did we feel like we were crowding each other, so much space and especially the way the bedrooms are designed, really adds to the privacy of everyone.

The house staff was amazing and so friendly, and we highly recommend having some meals prepared by will not regret. If you're heading to Sayulita then this is your place!
