Guests who stay at Casa de la Vida are guaranteed a Sayulita vacation as unique and memorable as the house itself. You are invited to relax in an unparalleled tranquil environment offering the most breath-taking views of the Sayulita Bay, surrounding mountains and jungle. We are the last house before the jungle, so unlike many areas in town, it is quiet here ( no discos/dogs barking//all nite party animals like in the plaza centro area)....and very private.A pool, air conditioning, extreme privacy, and proximity to the north end beach are just a few of the many assets guests of Casa de la Vida enjoy during a most memorable vacation in paradise.
The house is perfect for those wishing to visit the village of Sayulita, just north of Puerto Vallarta, yet also desire the exclusiveness offered by the town's 'North End' neighborhood. A huge veranda (with a hanging bed) provides great shade during the day. The pool is located just steps from the veranda with comfortable lounge chairs for perfect siestas.
The house also offers beach chairs, an umbrella, outside shower, and a complete kitchen. Azucena, the housekeeper, will have arranged fresh Sayulita flowers upon your arrival and will clean the house every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Azucena can also do personal laundry upon request as well as prepare meals for you at an extra fee. Casa de la Vida has a gas BBQ (Weber) for your use .
Access to the beach is a 2-minute walk down a cobblestone lane and a beautifully landscaped trail. Guests can either walk the road (mostly flat!) or the beach to the village center, located about 15 minutes away by foot. The Sayulita beach in front of the house is perfect for surf casting and guests with an adventurous spirit will be amazed by the trails through the virgin jungle situated just minutes from the house. You can walk through the jungle to the isolated beach that lies between Sayulita and San Pancho.
The terrace is where you will find yourself each day, whether it is coffee, yoga, siestas, dancing, stargazing, reading or visiting. It is outdoor living at its best! Then on the terrace each evening as the sun sets into the ocean you will be drawn to celebrate the end of yet another memorable Sayulita day.
1 king size bed in the south master suite with A/C and private garden bath with Sayulita bay view ( has 4in Novaform Gel foam topper that conforms to your body to create a restful sleep)
1 king and one twin in north master suite with A/C and enormous private garden bath also has the gel foam topper for your best sleep ever!

Had a blissful week in Sayulita and Casa de la Vida. Fully equipped with all that could be needed on holiday (insert cappuccino maker), and was equal parts private, spacious, safe and secure. Daytimes spent poolside and evenings spent admiring views of the sunset. And lounging in the hanging bed was enjoyed anytime of day. Sayulita & Casa de la Vida are worth a second trip!

We had a truly wonderful stay at Casa de la Vida. The house is splendid. We admired its charming architecture and a great taste of the interior design (beautiful art work!). Our room was just fabulous, very specious and with an outstanding stone built bathroom! A very special part of our vacation was sitting on the gorgeous terrace with friends and a glass of wine watching the sun sets and the breath-taking view of the ocean. We loved the location of the Casa in a very quiet, exclusive neighbourhood (only a 2 minutes’ walk to the beach!). Thanks to the adventurous spirit of the owners we explored the area hiking the jungle trails, swimming in the ocean, going on excursions and discovering Mexican cuisine. My husband had a great time biking with Jim and I enjoyed the yoga classes with Anita who is an amazing instructor. I could also practice my poor Spanish with Azucena, a very friendly housekeeper. We recommend Casa de la Vida to couples who want to have a relaxing and tranquil getaway, families with young kids and teenagers (the swimming pool is great) and people keen on adventure like learning to surf. Yes, it is possible even in our age 50+… We did it! So, we highly recommend Casa de la Vida basically to everyone who wants to “carpe diem”! Thank you so much Anita and Jim!

Our group of 8 friends had a wonderful time at Casa de la Vida. Anita was quick to respond to our emails, and was helpful as we prepared for our trip. The house is beautiful, and we especially enjoyed evenings on the patio, having dinner al fresco while watching the sun set - with entertainment provided by the geckos on the ceiling. The view from the patio or pool is fantastic - we scoped out the local surf break in the mornings before heading in, and saw whales breaching several times. From the house, you can be at the beach in minutes (although the main beach and surf break is about 15 minutes walk away). Downtown Sayulita is friendly and charming, and is also about 15 minutes walk. There are also some great jungle trails, just next to the house. Azucena (the housekeeper) was delightful and kept the house tidy. She is also a great cook, and with Anita's recommendation we had her cook meals for us several times during our stay. It was indeed delicious, and she was very gracious to accommodate our special requests (making part of the meal vegan/vegetarian friendly). If you want to cook for yourself, the kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes/utensils you will need, and there is also a gas barbeque for your use. We also really enjoyed eating in town - especially breakfast at Rollie's, lunch at Burrito Revolucion, and dinner at Il Vizietto (amazing pizza and fresh pasta, on the right before you cross the river - look for the swings!). The quarters were a little tight for 8 adults (families with children would probably be more comfortable at that number), but it worked out just fine for our group. If you are planning a large group, be aware that although 2 bedrooms are very spacious and have attached baths, the 3rd bedroom is small and has a separate entrance at the back of the house and no bathroom. Overall, we had a wonderful time! Thank you Anita & Jim for sharing your beautiful home - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

Our holiday to Sayulita was wonderful. The house is beautiful and located just a short walk to the beach. We spent time everyday laying on the terrace, cooling off in the pool and running through the waves. Downtown, there are several great restaurants for both a fancy night out and a fish taco to go. We went zip lining for a little adventure and had a great time. We highly recommend this excursion!! Azucena makes amazing salsa and guacamole and she keeps the house clean and fresh. We slept in the second bedroom. It is very large and the bathroom is amazing. The room was a cool place to retire to after a day in the sun.

We loved it! Casa de la Vida is just beautiful .... my husband and I enjoyed the tranquility of it all, private setting with a lovely pool for those dips! Outdoor living at its best, gorgeous sunsets too! A short 5 minute walk brings you to the most beautiful beach ever not to mention 10 minutes into the village either on the beach road or on the beach. The fresh produce, which we purchased daily and the fresh 'catch of the day' - throw it on the grill and voila, dinner is served! There are many incredible restaurants to choose from as well with street vendors grilling up some amazing fish tacos! We can't wait to go back! We highly recommend Casa de la Vida! Check it out, you'll fall in love!

About the owner: Jim's a school teacher who has now retired. I'm a photographer and have my own small business. We have 3 children - 2 grown-up and gone and a 17 year old girl. We have 3 small bichon-crosses and 2 of them have come to Sayulita with us! We love to take long walks on the beach and spend time on our veranda, drinking coffee and taking in the fabulous views. We are both very active and to try to do as much as possible by way of bike riding or walking or the gym. We love kayaking and hiking as well and plan to take up paddle boarding (quite popular in Sayulita).
Why the Owner Chose Sayulita:
Sayulita was recommended to us by friends and we found our home after looking all over Mexico. It's a direct flight from Calgary (4.5 hours) and an easy 40 minute drive from the airport. We love the smal town feel with cobblestone streets and every-one recognizes you. The coffee shops, art galleries and stores make for fun strolls through the centre of town. The restaurants offer wonderful food at amazingly low prices. Plenty of fresh seafood and moqitos!!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location! We are at the end of beach road with a spectacular view of the ocean, beach and whole town. The house sits up on a little hill only 2 minutes walking distance from the beach (150 yards). It is so private in our yard you could take a nude dip in the pool. All you hear is the waves and geckos - no dogs or roosters like in many other parts of town! (We found out the hard way!). You can walk to town via the beach and arrive in 12- 15 minutes.
