Property description

WELCOME to Casa Escondida, your private and intimate tropical hideaway with beautiful ocean and bay views, located in the exclusive Pedregroso neighborhood on the quiet north side of Sayulita. Escondida, meaning hidden, is an appropriate name for this small but elegant home as it is nestled among the hills and surrounded by a tropical garden. It is a Mexican-style house with many traditional characteristics such as a red tiled roof, brick arches, handmade tiles, wrought iron, exposed ceiling beams, and an open-air kitchen.

It is the perfect vacation home for 1 or 2 people, or a small family. The large bedroom has a king-sized bed and a full-sized bed. The full-sized bed is built into a nook and perfect for 1 or 2 children, or for day-dreaming. The room is air conditioned and stylishly furnished with handmade local furniture and regional artwork. The bathroom is tiled with colorful handmade Mexican tiles and has a large walk-in shower. The open-air kitchen is modern and fully equipped and built in the traditional local style with brick arches showing views of the ocean and tropical garden. If you prefer not to cook and stay at home, arrangements can be made to have a delicious home-cooked meal delivered. The pool in front of the house has a small wading area and the patio is equipped with chairs, lounge chairs, and a sun umbrella.

Regardless of whether you are inside, outside, or in the pool you will have fabulous views of the ocean, bay, and sunset.

TESTIMONIALS (a few of them ...)

'We had a peaceful, magical time at your house in Sayulita. We loved it! The house, the setup, the view: all perfect. If Casa Escondida is available, we would like to reserve it for the same time next year. It was simply the best of all the places we've rented in Sayulita. Thank you for designing a wonderful house and providing a peaceful retreat.'

'Just wanted to touch base - I've been intending to e-mail you ever since we returned from Sayulita. We had a wonderful time at Casa Escondida - your vacation home is a very special place - we loved it, and it was just what we were looking for. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. We received the deposit check back and just wanted to say thanks for being so efficient and delivering everything that was promised. We hope to stay there again!'
C.M. and R.M.

'I wanted to send this e-mail to thank you for your accommodations. My brother loved the place. I went up to see the house and it was gorgeous. He had the nicest house there. The pool was beautiful, the house was clean, and the kitchen was just awesome.'

'I wanted to write and let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Escondida in Sayulita. My husband and I had a wonderful vacation and loved the house. Everything was perfect, and the staff treated us wonderfully. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting, the lovely garden, the birds and butterflies. The sunsets were spectacular and the accommodations were excellent. Your house is a perfect little gem. We would certainly love to go back sometime and stay there again!'

Car: Not Necessary

The town of Sayulita is a charming fishing village, about a 35-minute drive away on Highway 200 through a lush mountain rainforest north from Puerto Vallarta. Low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand in this picturesque village. On the palm-tree lined beach you find lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for rent, beach cafés and restaurants, surf schools, and local fisherman who will take you fishing or bring you to pristine snorkeling areas. The ocean is great for splashing, swimming, and offers first-class surfing. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine such as Italian, French, Chinese, and Argentinean. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, mountain biking, kayaking, zip line adventures, horseback riding, visits to neighboring colonial towns and ancient pre-Columbian petroglyphs. In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening. Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.
