Your Tropical Beachfront Paradise Getaway

Bedrooms 3
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 Sayulita

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.

Paradise Indeed!

We absolutely loved our stay here. Such an artistic home, on the beach, private pool, great accommodations. Gladis came in and cooked us 2 delightful Mexican dinners. All was fantastic. Truly a gem!

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kiara is embedded in our hearts forever. This was my parents first time to Mexico and I could not imagine a better place for them to experience it. The thoughtfully decorated home sits on a quiet beach with the most beautiful blue tile infinity pool. Plenty of places to lounge, explore and find complete peace between the wave breaks. We enjoyed a fantastic dinner prepared by Gladis - we HIGHLY recommend it. We also become close with Abraham, the grounds keeper - such a kind, happy man. Eric is a fantastic house manager and is available for anything you need. Trust me, if you want to have a life changing vacation, check this place out. Thank you Sua-Anne for offering such an experience to folks. We are forever grateful and will be back.

Incredible house in perfect beach town

  • 5 of 5

Cannot express how amazing this house is. The posting doesn't do it justice. From the house itsef, to the beach, the pool, the proximity to town, this materially exceeded my expectations in every way. Highly suggest renting a golf cart as well, made the trip that much more convenient. Will no doubt be back very soon!

Open air ocean house

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely stay for our family of 6. Most of all we LOVED the open wall of window/doors, from ceiling to floor that let the breeze and ocean sounds into the home. Also there were so many places to hang out: pool, upper deck, living room space, first and second level patio.

Our boys rented surf boards on the beach for 24 hours (the shop closes at 6pm) and were able to surf at sunset with the locals.....a blast.

The walk to the town took us at least 20 minutes each way, so we ended up renting golf carts to make the transition a little faster.

We enjoyed boating with Alley Cat 2 and were able to snorkel and experience the outer islands.

Eric welcomed us and answered all our questions.

We loved the town of Sayulita: the people, food and ocean views and of course our lovely home where we enjoyed family, relaxed our bodies and renewed our spirits.

Blessings from Napa, California.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with one other couple and could easily have accommodated 4 extra people. The house is located directly on N Sayulita beach a 15-20 minute walk on the beach into the main beach in Sayulita. The beach in front of the house is great for bobbing in the waves (given that there is no strong tide). The bedrooms have air conditioning and someone comes to clean the house twice a week. We ate all our meals in town (including breakfast) because we read that all the food is amazing, and it in fact lived up to the hype. We rented a golf cart to get around which I recommend given that the house is at the bottom of a steep hill. This is the perfect house for a couples getaway or a family vacation if the children are slightly older. Not a great house for toddlers given the multiple levels and lots of stairs, but besides that it's perfect. Just far enough removed from the hustle of Sayulita to give you some privacy, but close enough to be easily accessible to the activity. Can't recommend this place enough!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm also glad the waves were kind to you, because that ocean can be ruthless! We'd love to have you back any time!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is a beautiful, paradise getaway. The back of the home has an outdoor pool which overlooks the amazing beach! The beach is just steps away from the property and if you walk along it you are only a 20 minute walk from the main town. If you walk in the opposite direction, you are minutes from a beautiful hike which can take you all the way to San Pancho. The home itself has 3 beautiful bedrooms, all with their own private bathrooms. There is also plenty of outdoor space, with patios downstairs and upstairs (equipped with an outdoor bar!!). The kitchen is also great if you want to do your own cooking. The town itself has an awesome vibe and is a great place to go to find some delicious, inexpensive eats! Use the restaurant recommendations Cara Kiara provides, Los Corazones was spectacular, as were all the restaurants they recommended! I highly recommend this home for you Sayulita get away. It's quiet and relaxing but is also close enough to the town that you get a true, Mexican experience. Enjoy your stay!

Car: not necessary

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!
