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.

Beautiful, serene house! Such a relaxing place to stay. We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa Kiara. This special home has everything to make a stay in Sayulita peaceful and relaxing. We have rented many places in Sayulita and Casa Kiara is at the top of the list. The house is stocked with everything you need, the pool is so great and the ocean out the wide open doors is amazing. Sue Ann is very easy to work with and the kind folks that help maintain the house are great. We will definitely return to Casa Kiara!

Thank you for this beautiful paradise, The Ardens

Great home in beautiful Sayulita!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Casa Kiara with two other couples. We each had our own bedrooms (king sized beds) and our own bathrooms. The house was amazing! Great Mexican charm throughout. Perfect sized pool area with a nice infinity pool to cool off in or just walk down 8 steps to the beach and relax on the private chairs and soak up the sun. It really was the best of both worlds. The house is on the north-end of the beach which is a bit quieter which we loved, and an easy 10 minute walk along the beautiful beach to some really amazing restaurants and shopping. And if you are too tired to walk home, there are taxi's to catch from the square in Sayulita. For 6 people it was $8 to get home. Well worth it after drinks and shopping! You will love sitting at the pool and watching the ocean waves crash into the shore. Keep your eyes open for whales. We saw several jumping out of the ocean in the bay right from our seats at the pool. Owner Sue-Anne was always available online to answer questions and the house manager Eric was extremely helpful to us for booking excursions or just giving us tips on where to eat and have fun. I cannot wait to go back to beautiful Sayulita and this house!

Very unique house

  • 5 of 5

Very unique house ,pool and beach front. Staying in this house that is located in this small Mexican village is a real treat. There are many find restaurants within walking distance. At night it seems like the ocean is right in your living room, this is a plus not a minus. The house is located at the end of the beach so it seems like the beach is your very own.

Paradise in & out!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in 7 different Sayulita vacation rentals over the years and this casa has the best blend yet of indoor/outdoor living. The pool was so refreshing, and we loved the dappled shade of the terraced decks. It was a perfect layout for traveling with our best friends and grown kids. The location ensured a quieter, more peaceful Christmas than if we had stayed right in town. We can't wait to go back!

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.

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!
