Property description

Specifically designed for a casually laid-back and relaxing stay, even a really long one, Casa Amarilla reflects the owner's belief that quality is always a good investment! Canadian designed, and built to that standard, though constructed and managed by some of the best local artisans, no effort, or expense, has been spared to ensure your security and enjoyment. This compound is a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the beach and completely surrounded by a 2 meter wall and each unit has a safe for valuables; providing a quiet, serene and secure setting. There is off street, covered parking for 2 and in-compound, locked parking for 1 more.

Whether you want to tan in a lounger by the pool, nap in a hammock, enjoy a cerveza or two either under the palapa or at the bar by the pool, dance under the stars or entertain friends, new or old, these homes offer the flexibility to do it all and more in style. Or, since the 3 separate air-conditioned get-away's are in the same compound, you may elect to book it in its entirety for larger parties.

Our open concept allows the breezes to waft through while the large windows admit an abundance of light. The kitchens are fully equipped to allow you to create anything you wish... blenders, coffee makers,pots and pans,(margarita glasses), bar fridges and full fridges, full stoves with oven and toaster ovens. If we could think of a need, we provided for it!

Featuring professionally designed gardens, soft colours, wonderful rock walls, tiled courtyards, and the splashing of the pool to soothe the senses, we are certain your stay here to be one you'll remember as long as it takes to come again.

Casa Amarilla is a magically perfect place for a couple, a small family, or even a larger party to comfortably enjoy the wonderful village of Sayulita. We have two apartment style casitas available for rent as well, contact us for details on renting the whole complex!!

We look forward to welcoming you to our casitas and hearing of your enjoyment there!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our family first heard about Sayulita from our (then) 19 year old son who'd spent several months in 1996 surfing with a bunch of his high school buddies. He regaled us with tales of Paradise, of friendly people, unspoiled charm, and SURFING! I somewhat reluctantly headed off with his Mom and 2 younger siblings to 'no-one knew' that next Christmas and was smitten inside of 3 hours. Over the next 1/2 dozen or so years and at least 10 visits we became ever more convinced that this really was a place we could retire to and call home, have our grand-kids visit and build fond memories of. Finally we bought first one, then another, piece of property and began to formulate plans for the construction of (what?)and with whom? Ideas came and went, changed and changed again, When we thought we had it right and were ready to start, we found out we were really beginning another stage in the evolution of what we now have...and we see more change yet. Such are the ways of dreams! What we never changed was our focus on quality and our belief that built well is built best. We are so very proud of what have, owe so much to those who did our work and added to our dream. We always enjoy hearing from our past guests and how much they enjoyed their stay. We welcome you to stay with us and see what a part of our dream looks and feels like. Pura Vida, Doug and Sheran

Why the Owner Chose Sayulita:
Well, we really didn't buy...we built. It seemed more rewarding to us to design, build, change and evolve our way into something uniquely ours. What you'll see here is a blend of what we wanted and what we learned how to do all folded into and around one of the nicest little villages either of us has ever been to. It's privacy, location and amenities are uniquely appealing...whether it's surfing, fishing, snorkeling sampling some FIRST CLASS dining, collapsing at the side of the pool with a cerveza or curling up with a book, it can all be done and enjoyed from here. I've never been to a place I like being more. That's why!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're about a 7-10 minute walk to the town square...close enough for easy access, far enough away for privacy. Our property is self-sufficient, laundry, grounds and house staff, garden areas, pool, 3 palapas to relax under, satellite TV and internet. If you want it, it's either there or close by! Maybe the neatest, and most under-used asset is a hidden beach you can't get to from the main town/beach area, Carrecitos...guaranteed quiet.
