Sayulita villa description

Just 30 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport where the jungle meets the ocean on a beautiful gently sloping hillside with 360-degree views of ocean and jungle, and only 75 yards from the ocean sits Casa Rana Verde, a tropical paradise in wonderful, sunny Sayulita! The fully-furnished home features ocean and jungle views from every room and one-plus acre of private, gated land with wading and adult pools connected by a cascading waterfall, that cascades onto an ocean viewing bench to watch the sunset over the ocean! Our ocean view pool is the best in Sayulita!

We live right next door to the estate to assure that your vacation will be all you expect it to be. All 3 bedrooms are very large with extra built in beds. They are furnished with the finest amenities such as Ralph Lauren towels, 250+ thread count all cotton sheets (only natural fiber products are used throughout), down pillows, televisions with DVD players and a DVD library of TV sets & movies, iPod player, Guatemalan fabrics for all curtains and pillow covers, our personal art collection from travels throughout Mexico/Guatemala, furnishings that will allow you all the comforts you need while enjoying our incredible villa. Our kitchens are stocked with as many small appliances, coffee cups, wine glasses, plates, bowls, etc. as you have in your own homes. The kitchen ware is matching Fiesta ware. Everything is in abundance.
The villa is located at 'Villas Rana Verde' Sayulita's premiere estate property, with almost 1 1/2 acres of private land, we are one of the largest pieces of estate property in Sayulita. The beach across the street is one of the most pristine, sandy, private beaches with the cleanest water in Sayulita. It is not unusual to be the only person on the beach for 1/4 mile in each direction. There is great surf fishing on the beach right across the street from the estate. The fisherman regularly catch snook, sea bass, grouper and many other varieties. It is a nesting grounds for Leatherback turtles who can be seen in the early morning hours and late evenings during summer months laying their eggs or hiding the nests before their return to the ocean.

We are located about 1/2 mile from the village in an area of private villas away from the night noise of the village with its roosters (why do they have to start crowing at 2:30AM?), cantinas, and Saturday night disco, and all night drum circles. Your quiet night of sleep is assured. We are across from the most pristine, private, sandy beach you have ever seen, just a 2 minute walk on a cobblestone path. The short 10 minute walk to town can be along the beach or a quiet, low traffic paved road.

We provide everything you need for a luxurious and relaxing stay. Hair dryers in every bathroom, organic fruit from the estate for your table, every day maid and pool service, optional cook, beach towels (chairs and umbrellas too), fresh flowers, the best of everything, all in the very private setting. Our villas can not be seen by each other or by the surrounding villas. Our driver can pick you up at the airport in an air conditioned Suburban with cold drinks of your choice. If you are looking for a very private getaway without even leaving the estate, our cook can prepare the best Mexican meals. She brings her masa dough for tortillas, along with her wooden press (many guests enjoy pitching in and making their own tortillas, it is lots of fun with Lucia), and she prepares salsa, guacamole, rice, beans, and 2 entrees with your choice of chile rellenos, shrimp, fish, chicken, pork or beef. Most guests tell me this is one of the highlights of their trip.

Our lovely estate is home to the most beautiful birds that you are likely to witness outside the most complete aviary of exotic, tropical, colorful birds. We have identified over 100 varieties of these magnificent creatures. There is an even larger abundance if you venture into the nearby jungle.

The best tropical garden in Sayulita is at your doorstep all within the private, gated compound. We have so many varieties of palms, sweet smelling exotic flowers, flowering trees, organic fruit for your table, and much more for your enjoyment. If you love to garden, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to live your dream in a tropical paradise. Meander through our many cobblestone pathways into a tropical botanical paradise seldom seen on private grounds.


We have the best home, pool, garden, location, view and amenities in Sayulita! Check out the 'comments of previous guests' below to find out how truly great our home is!

You will not experience a more beautiful, untouched paradise anywhere!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Barry & Connie Dumont moved here from Santa Cruz, CA in 2003. They had been Realtors there for the previous 20 years. They have four children, one of whom moved to Sayulita with them and owns and operates Galeria Gypsy in the village of Sayulita. They have always had a keen interest in Mexico and south, and were frequent visitors during the 70s and 80s to Mexico, Guatemala and Columbia. Once the four children had grown, they renewed their love affair with Mexico and made the move to Mexico full time in 2003. They live next door to the villas. They travel to the interior of Mexico and as buyers for their daughter's store several times a year, and when in Sayulita are surfing and enjoying the fantastic laid back lifestyle.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sayulita:
                  My wife and I 1st came to Sayulita in 1995. We immediately loved the wonderful ambiance, weather, ocean, beaches and great people. We were living in Santa Cruz, CA at the time, which we love for many of the same reasons. As the years went by we were spending more time each year in Sayulita. We met the previous owners of the property and thought what an amazing piece of property it was and never dreamed that we would one day own it. We thought it had the perfect combination of great ocean views, easy beach access, privacy and great location. After we bought the estate, we moved here full time in 2003 and have never regretted a day. We live next door to the villas full time, so we are here to be sure that your vacation is all that you expect it to be. There is a reason why everyone is talking about Sayulita, but that reason is actually many reasons. It is just a fantastic place to live or visit! Come and visit us and discover why so many of our guests describe our villas in superlative terms. We make it great for you!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Our estate is a fantastic venue for any size group of up to 15-20 people, depending on whether there are families, couples or singles. In addition to Casa Rana Verde there are 2 other villas on the property that will accommodate a larger group if you need it. Each of the 3 villas have their own private pool. Nothing is shared between the villas except the parking area and gated entry. Each villa also has its own kitchen and gardens. Our full acre plus property is landscaped with the finest garden in Sayulita. Due to the extensive 15 year garden and other landscaping, there is total privacy everywhere. There is maid & pool service six days a week. There is a fantastic cook that prepares, serves and cleans up after an 8 plate meal for 120 pesos/adult plus the cost of the food. We use only the finest for your bedding, cooking, bathing, etc, so that when you come here, the comforts are much like what you are accustomed to at home. Our driver will pick you up the airport, insuring your comfort and safety to and from the villas. Our ocean views are unsurpassed in Sayulita. It is just a 2 minute walk on cobblestone to the sandy, pristine beach from our front gate, and only a 10 minute walk to the village of Sayulita by sandy beach or quiet paved road. We live next door to insure that your needs are fulfilled. We care about your stay and want to make it the best it can be!
