About Karen Draper
We are a Colorado family who have been vacationing in Mexico for over 30 years. We fell in love with Sayulita more than 20 years ago and were very fortunate to be able to buy our home in 2005. We are so happy to be able to share this magical spot with people from all over the world. Our Casa is our part time home and you will find it has everything you need to feel at home too.
Karen Draper purchased this House in 2005
Why Karen Draper chose Sayulita
Sayulita is a wonderful town and personifies all that we love about Mexico. It is so easy to get to Puerto Vallarta from all over the US and the short drive up the coast sets the scene for the vacation experience. We always feel a thrill when we turn off HWY 200 and make our way under the Sayulita welcome palapa. Less time is spent traveling and more time relaxing. When we first saw the house, we saw its potential, fell in love with the views and saw a garden transformed into a lush tropical respite. We have continued to work on the house since day 1 and our frequent repeat visitors love to see what else is new.

Comfortable & Beautiful Casa!
Our family really enjoyed the beautiful views from this house. Spent a lot of time out by pool. We rented a golf cart which is a must if you have someone in your group that is older. We paid $40/day for our golf cart. We felt safe the whole 9 nights and Karen the owner was very kind and responded promptly to any emails we had. The caretakers Alma and Jose Luis were very kind as well. Thank you Karen! Will be back!
Large Hilltop Open-Space Villa with beautiful views and pool!
It's true, it's better than the pictures! We all had a wow moment when we got inside. All information listed is very accurate and Karen handled the booking beautifully.
Our group of 7 friends had an incredible week in Sayulita. We would all highly recommend this place.
There are just so many cool places to hang out around the villa!
Side note, if you're going to rent golf carts (it's a game changer if you do), I highly recommend Riviera Golf Carts. It's just down the hill and thier service (and carts) was fantastic.
So glad you had that wow! moment when you got to the house. We do too, even after all these years.
I’m very happy that your vacation was fun - please come back and stay with us again. Karen.
We were a group of 8... 4 adults, 3 teens and a 10 year old, it fit us perfectly...
We loved our stay here. The house is beautiful from inside out. You just can't get enough of the view as well.. loved my morning coffee while looking at the town and ocean, watching the birds fly around..
That hill, lol.. nothing golf carts can't solve, or burn off those cervesa calories.. Would absolutely stay here again, is it for sale?! ;)
Thanks for having us!
Wonderful vacation home for large families with great views
This vacation home is great. It is located in a small mountain overseeing sayulita and the sea. The drive up to the house is a bit inclined but you get used to it very fast. If you want To walk down to the town there is a secret passway via stairs that take you down to a small road that leads to the beginning of the town entrance where all the shops begin. It is extremely convenient and fast to reach the center of the town or the beach. The house is big and specious. The living and kitchen are large and have plenty of space for the kids to play and run around. The whole living area is an open air concept so you feel very connected to nature and the vegetation around you. The swimming pool is also very nice and you have an open view of the town and sea. There is also a small pool for smal children. We ended up spending a lot of time in the pool area during our visit. One afternoon we even made a BBQ on the small terrace next to the pool and it was amazing. There are 4 rooms in total. 2 upstairs next to the living place and 2 downstairs. The 2 rooms upstairs are the best because they are attached to the living area. The other 2 rooms are located downstairs via an exterior staircase next to the pool. The rooms are simple but comfortable and all have their own bathroom. The house does not have A/C but they do provide you with plenty of fans to use during the day and at night if needed. Overall a great experience. If you want a great vacation home for your family but don’t want to spend a fortune, this is the perfect place.
Thank you Jorge!
So happy to hear that your stay at Casa Del Cielo was enjoyable.
I liked your comment about feeling connected to nature and the vegetation - I think the big verandah feels like a treehouse.
Please come back and visit us again whenever you can.
An Unbelievable Authentic Mexican Oasis
This house by far exceeded our expectations. Karen the owner,couldn’t have been more caring and accommodating. The caretakers Alma and Jose Luis showed us the most amazing hospitality. The views are incredible! The kitchen comes fully equipped. My husband is a chef and even he was impressed. It was very kid friendly for my 4 and 1 1/2 year old. We felt safe and well taken care of. This house is a short and adventureous walk into town/beach. Although we enjoyed Playa de Los Muertos the most. It’s a very short taxi ride and an enjoyable walk back. I would recommend this house and this location to the fullest. Only warning is the hill, but it’s good for you and worth the view. We swam probably 4 times a day. It was almost too perfect but there’s no such thing! I definitely agree with other reviews saying the pictures don’t do the house justice. So roomy and incredible!
Thank you Brianna!
We were so happy to hear how much you enjoyed spending your Sayulita vacation at our beloved home.
Please come back. Again and again!
Pacific Ocean view like you’ve never experienced!!
Wonderful home and incredible views from most any point on the property. Pictures on VRBO do not give the property it’s due. Home is very clean and property is kept up.Karen’s information about Sayulita and how to navigate we’re spot on and made our getting around much easier. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Five stars and don’t have to give it a second thought!!
Thank you for your complimentary words. It’s great to hear that you had such a positive experience.
Please do come back and spend some more time in our little slice of heaven!
