The Space

THIS PROPERTY CAN BE RENTED TOGETHER WITH THE UPPER HOUSE TO MAKE A SPACIOUS TWO BEDROOM RENTAL. See other listing on Airbnb. Casa Caramba is a gorgeous ocean view one bedroom home and studio apartment, completed 3 years ago. This uniquely crafted home was custom designed and built by the owner, with artistic details and accents throughout. It is colorful, beautifully decorated, and immaculate. Located in the north beach residential neighborhood of lovely homes, the house sits 100 feet above the beach. It takes approx. three minutes to walk to the beach, and approx a 10-12 minute walk to the main plaza. There are restaurants and food markets approx 5 minutes walk away. Both units include maid service (every 3-4 days), drinking water, wireless internet, wall safe for your valuables, gas grill, beach chairs, and beach umbrella. Each offers high quality bed linens, towels, and feather pillows. There is an enormous water holding tank, so there are never any concerns about running out of water when the town is having water pumping problems. As well there is an on-demand hot water system in place - so lots of hot water any time you need it. All rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans. All windows are screened. The property is owner managed and very secure. No smoking is allowed inside under roof. This house is lovingly maintained with attention to detail.

The ground floor one bedroom studio has it's own private entrance. In the bedroom there is a queen size bed, that looks out on to the patio and the ocean beyond. There is a fully furnished kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffeemaker, double hot plate, toaster oven, etc. As well on the patio there is a gas grill. There is plenty of storage, a closet, and a small desk area. There is a small TV and DVD player with a selection of movies. The bathroom is large, colorful and features custom tile work throughout. The bedroom opens out onto an outside patio under a palapa roof, with comfortable lounge chairs and a dining area, as well as an ocean view. It is private and completely separate from the upper house. There is off street parking.

Casa Caramba is the epitome of tropical coastal living; imagine your bronzed body relaxed on the sofa after a fun day on the beach, sipping a margarita under the palapa roof as the sun sets over the Pacific....the palm and higuera trees bathed in pastel colors, the wash of the golden surf relaxing your total being....the jungle comes alive with it's nightly song of geckos and crickets, as the village lights appear across the bay, along with the first stars. The jasmine-scented breeze and soft music from the village alert your senses and it's time to stroll into town to dine on incredible shrimp chile rellenos or fish tacos, more tequila, some live salsa music.... and then a lazy walk back to su casa along the beach.......Hmmmm.....day after day......this could be your vacation!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The studio suite was absolutely perfect for me, the patio is so beautiful overlooking the massive trees and ocean, I watch a big iguana in the trees below for days and saw gorgeous birds and butterflies from the patio. I love the energy of the north side of sayulita, peaceful, relaxed and quiet - away from town but still close enough to get to but not necessary as there were great inexpensive restaurants / cafe / juice bar on the north side (do go to the juice bar in the health food pharmacy, her juices are amazing) - I felt very safe in this neighbourhood as a single woman travelling alone. I highly recommend this place, and I will be back as well!

  • We had such a good time at Casa Caramba! We actually stayed in both the studio and then the upper unit. Both are very clean and comfortable and have all the amenities we needed. The location is perfect and just far enough a way from town to not be loud, but close enough to walk to. If you're looking for a really great deal and a place you now you'll be comfortable in, I highly recommend the Studio or One Bedroom.

  • Lugar bonito, comodo y limpio. Con todo lo necessario para estar por uno o varios días. Increíble vista y privacidad en zona tranquila y relajada a una cuadra de la playa en Sayulita norte. Ideal para descansar y pasar unos tranquilos y bonitos días. Maravilloso! Seguro regresamos!!!
    Wunderschönes, kleines Apartment, sehr gut ausgestattet, gemütlich und sauber. Umwerfende Aussicht! Im nördlichen (und schöneren) Sayulita und somit ruhig gelegen, ca 15 Minuten zu Fuß vom Zentrum Sayulitas und nur ein paar Schritte vom Strand entfernt. Sonnenschirme, Strandtücher und Sessel vorhanden. Ideal um sich einige Tage zu erholen.

  • We had an awesome time at Casa Caramba. Jorge (property manager) was very accommodating and allowed us to checkin early / checkout late. We found the house to be very nice and clean. It's well located in a quiet neighbourhood (trust me, this is a major advantage Vs living closer to "downtown"). Beach chairs, umbrellas and cooler were available to guests. Wifi was better than in other places we've been although it is slow and lagging compared to what we have at home... The house shows in the water on AirBnB's map, but it's truly located just a 3-4 minutes walk to the beach and approximately 10 minutes to downtown.

  • Charming studio, fabulous views. My favorite part was hearing the ocean at night, and with the ocean breeze we didn't even need the fans. I also appreciated the relatively stocked kitchen- we used the blender for pina coladas and fruit smoothies, coffee maker and cups, and the barbeque to grill fresh fish. I also appreciated having a safe. Well located and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this.

  • My husband and I spent a lovely week relaxing in Sayulita. Craig's house was in a great location, close to the beach, restaurants and shops, but far from the noise of the village. We loved falling asleep and waking to the sound of the surf and jungle birds. The studio was very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Jorge, the manager was very responsive and helpful. It was a fantastic get-away spot!

  • Sayulita is lovely, but it definitely helps to go before you pick a place. I stayed in two places on this trip and visited friends who were staying in other places... of all the ones I stayed and visited, based on location, communication with the hosts, the condition of the apartment, and of ease of use, this would be the last place I would pick if I were to return. I'll keep it at that.

  • This is the perfect little place for a single person or couple. The studio has everything you need and it's nicely decorated and serene. It's beautiful. I had a dependable wi-fi signal, too. The condo is only a 5 or 10 minute walk from the Sayulita bus stop and that part of the neighborhood is very quiet yet close to town and the beach. My favorite beachside bar/restaurant was a 5 minute walk away. There's also a wonderful open air yoga class only one block away. I feel like I picked the perfect location for my vacation. Regina's directions were accurate and addressed all my questions.

  • We had such a lovely time in Regina's casita. She was very accessible and greeted us upon arrival, giving us a quick tour and advising us on the best places to go. The place itself is in a peaceful part of town but well within walking distance to the town center and beach. We spent a lot of time on our patio listening to all the lovely birds and listening to the ocean sounds. Despite being small the layout of the interior makes it spacious and airy. There was A/C but we found the ceiling fans kept us plenty cool. We used the little Weber grill to cook up red snapper one night which was lovely. Regina provided us with an umbrella to shade us at the beach so sunburns were thankfully avoided. We also were able to use an extra cooler for ice (many Margueritas were had!) Regina has done a wonderful job with this space, perfect for a single person or couple and as the pics show, it's well designed (we loved the tiled shower with the mega sized shower head). Highly recommended,

  • My husband and I stayed here for out honeymoon and Regina was wonderful and Casa de Caramba was a perfect space for our trip. We had a wonderful time and cant express enough how perfect this place was to stay. We liked that it was quiet and such a unique and creative space. We felt welcomed and comfortable for our entire stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone. It was wonderful and Regina's recommendations were very helpful ad she was a great host. It was such a relaxing and wonderful trip, we already wish we were back! After exploring the town during our stay, we could think of no place better to stay than Casa de Caramba! Perfect for a couple and just a 2 minute walk to the beach! We loved spending the mornings and evenings sitting on the balcony listening to the waves. Beautiful surroundings with the perfect amount of privacy and we would definitely recommend the walk up the hillside streets near Casa de Caramba for amazing views of the city! If you have a car, there are some amazing surf spots not to far away as well! Regina was so accommodating and her place is truly unique! We liked that it was walking distance to everything in town, but just far enough from the center of town that it felt quiet and more relaxed. We could go on, but overall, this is a wonderful place with nothing but great experiences to offer!

I bought Casa Caramba after numerous vacations with my sons to Sayulita. We fell in love with the town and this property. It is owner managed, lovingly cared for, with great attention to detail. My assistant, Camille, and I are there for our guests 24/7 as needed. I can offer lots of advice on what to do and where to eat, and other tips for an enjoyable vacation.
