Adele getty purchased this estate in 2000

Why Adele getty chose Sayulita

When we found Carricitos we knew it was a one of a kind place. The views are unmatched, the sound of ocean, whales, birds, jungle and just far enough away from the noise of Sayulita, yet close enough to walk. Perfection! It has been so much fun to slowly develop it over the years, making beauty as we go. We hope you can appreciate the location and natural beauty of the place.

What makes this estate unique

The view the view the view. The privacy of the homes and the natural beauty that greets the eye are incredible. The location on a dead end road and the seclusion of the Carricitos beach below as a walk to only beach, has kept us feeling very private and secure. We are just far enough away from Sayulita to avoid the disco music and close enough to walk into town, a half mile away.

The casita and main house are private from one another and guests can interact or not. Both places are designed to relax, chill out and renew the spirit. There is some thing special going on here.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time staying in the Casita. We would love to come back with family or friends and stay in the big house, too. The kitchen and bathroom was very well equipped, there were no missing details. Lisa and Daniel were lovely and Lisa's massage was probably the best I ever had. We walked into town every time we wanted to go, but we spent a good deal of time just by the pool or sitting in our lovely little home. The sunsets from the beach and from the casita were amazing and each night I woke up from the light of the moon shining into our bed. Highly recommended. The pool is the best!

My husband and I stayed in the Ganesha for my 50th birthday. All the reviews that you see that say you never want to leave are right. We went to Sayulita with the idea that we would go into town each day, eat out, do some tours. Didn't happen. The infinity pool is amazing, the beach is beautiful to walk on, and the Casita is all open air with a wonderful breeze and the sound of the surf. The majority of our time was spent enjoying the property, pool, or just relaxing and reconnecting at the Casita. The birds are plentiful and so fun to watch. There were a couple that regularly visited us at the pool at sunset each night.

We did go into town a few times, ate breakfast at Don Pedro's and watched the surfers, did a little shopping around the plaza, had street tacos and lunch and drinks at Captain Cook's. They were all great.

These are the definites: Hire Lalo for transportation to and from the airport. Do not waste your time with all the people between customs and ground transportation, just keep walking. Lalo will meet you with a sign right at the exit of the airport terminal. He was friendly, on time, and answered a lot of questions for us. Stop at the Mega Store and shop for groceries. Have Carmen cook for you. So good, lots of food, and such a sweet person. We also hired Chef Oscar Limon to come in and cook seafood for us one night - also highly recommended. Get a massage from Lisa - let's just say heaven, she's amazing. She has a massage room set up on the lower level of their house, just down the hill from the Casita. It's open to the surf so extremely relaxing.

We ended up not getting a golf cart. It's a five minute walk to the beach and a fifteen or twenty minute walk to town. Going to town, it's down hill - get a taxi at the plaza for going back up the hill. It was around 100 pesos. The taxis were clean, the drivers uniformed and very friendly.

Lisa and Daniel were great. Very attentive for the few things we needed and full of information on the area.

As you can see, I can't say enough except that we will definitely be making this an annual event.

This was the perfect Christmas holiday for two. It felt like we were sleeping in a luxury tree house in the jungle. Hearing the sounds of the waves throughout the day and night created a tranquil experience. There was plenty of room for two people and it had all the amenities one would need in the kitchen and to relax at the pool or beach. The view is wonderful and it is easy access to the private beach. The access to town was wonderful as well. We walked into town daily and never had to get a cab throughout our trip except to get from San Pancho back to Sayulita. This place is just south of town and is very quiet and private yet not far from any action should you want that. We cooked almost every night since we had access to such wonderful fresh seafood and market items. We left feeling very relaxed and couldn't have been happier with our choice of where we stayed. Adele was easy to work with as we organized our dates and Lisa and Daniel were fantastic property managers: kind, easy going, and there if you needed anything. Massages from Lisa are a must! She is very knowledgable and has truly gifted hands. She is beyond any "spa massage" you could get in town. I will say one more thing, bring the bug spray. Other than that, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

My husband and I enjoyed a week at Casita Ganesha. It was magical. Everything was just as we hoped and just what we needed. The kitchen has plenty of items to cook. The patio is great, the open air casita is wonderful with the sound of the ocean. The pool and VIEW is spectacular. We are so happy to have found this place and can't wait to go back. The directions and notes to renters were really helpful. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation and sharing your beautiful home.
