About this listing
We have 2 cottages just behind main house: Casa Lilia, studio w/ queen bed, all in white marble & shells; Casa Buena Suerte, a suite w/ king bed, living room, all in peach travertine. Both have fully stocked kitchenettes, beautiful showers & patios.
Price depends on: which "casa" you rent, how long you rent it and the time of year.
This property is located in the private and 24/7 gated and guarded community of Punta del Burro, 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, 20 minutes before Sayulita, 10 minutes before Punta Mita and 5 minutes after the fishing village (and new Marina) Cruz de Huanacaxtle - all located on Riviera Nayarit. The main house, Casa Selvatica, is the second to the last house in the community, located in a palm forest adjacent to a river bed and sits in front of one of the area's best surf beaches: 200 yards to the right of the house is the well known right point break called "Burros" and directly in front of the house is a very forgiving wave perfect for learners, (rights and lefts) and riding waves on SUPs - with another mostly left break in between.
The property consists of the main house, Casa Selvatica, and two cottages: Casa Buena Suerte and Casa Lilia.
Casa Selvatica is the main house, around 2000 sq ft, with two bedrooms, one with a king bed, one with a queen bed.
Casa Buena Suerte is a suite with a large bedroom with king bed, a living room with two sleepable couches and a kitchenette. Casa Lilia, an all marble studio with Queen bed and small kitchen area is located on the path down to the beach. It has an indoor shower and an outdoor shower facing the palms and river bed. The price depends on which house/house and cottage and/ or cottage you wish to rent.
Punta del Burro is a private community located at 10.3 Kilometers on the Punta Mita Highway. It is not attached to a town or village, thus a car is useful. There are incredible restaurants within 10 minutes of the house - just request the list. There is a spa on our beach, horseback riding 15 minutes away, many locations for rain forest canopy tours and zip-lining, swimming with dolphins and unique to our area is a fishing boat trip to the Marietas Islands directly in front of our house, one of the few nature preserves in the world with Blue-footed Boobies. And after all the adventures, you will return to a quiet, beautiful private white sand beach called Burros. It is a surfing beach and thus there is a reef, but swimming is easy right out from the house and on calm days snorkeling will reveal the colorful underwater world of these tropical waters.
Casa Selvatica was designed by Cristina Duque from Mexico City and is a unique combination of local stone, tropical woods, stained glass and Mexican tile. The individual and distinctive style, reminiscent of the houses of the Catalan Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudi, was inspired by the nature that surrounds and is both casual and elegant - it makes all who enter feel right at home.
The main house has lots of sitting areas to watch the surf directly in front, or there is a sand patio under palm trees down on the sand. Available for rent are long and short surf boards and Stand Up Paddle Boards. There is a fire pit on the beach and barbecues outside the house and cottage.
Feel free to ask for more information!
Words of a recent Casa Selvatica guest:
We had the privilege of spending the last part of our honeymoon at Casa Selvetica. It was the best part of our trip. There's this feeling of peace and serenity the minute you walk in the door. The architecture is great and we loved how open everything is. It was relaxing, peaceful. and romantic....everything you dream that your honeymoon is and more. As new surfers, we enjoyed being able to watch the waves from our window and be in the water within minutes. Lori, the owner, makes everything so comfortable that you feel like you're home (thanks again Lori). We're already planning our next trip back.
Words of a 06/23/11 Casa Selvatica guest:
It was truly an honor to stay at Casa Selvatica! An easy drive from Puerto Vallarta to a tropical beauty. This home is so unique, you fall in love the minute you walk through the door. The owner and her staff are not only accomodating, they are delightful. All the toys to play in the water and the home is a great place to entertain or just a quiet getaway. Casa Selvatica is charm and elegance.

The place is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures! Very helpful and accommodating host, would definitely go back.
Casa Lilia is a fantastic place to stay! Lori is a wealth of information. We felt right at home! Also her assistant Pablo was super helpful, he even drove us back to the airport.
We Loved It!
Simply put, an amazing experience all around. The home itself is not only beautiful, but was very nicely kept, clean, and had many nice amenities. The setting could not have been any better. Walk down a few steps and you are on a beautiful beach that offers privacy. It was one of the nicest settings I have ever experienced, and Lori made sure that everything was perfect at all times. I sincerely hope to return one day soon!

About the Host, Lori
Love Mexico, the ocean, the mountains, horses, all animals, music, kindness, awareness. Henry David Thoreau and people - in that order. Whoops, my two kids: they are at the top of the list!
