Property description

Set amid palm trees at the edge of a white sand beach flecked with gold, stands a gracious Mexican villa with a broad shaded veranda, offering an unobstructed view of the warm Pacific Ocean only steps away.

This grand hacienda is private and peaceful, within walking distance of the center of the charming village of Sayulita. Complete with housekeeper at no additional charge and the option of having a private cook prepare meals at your request for a nominal fee, this is the perfect vacation home for a luxurious but uncomplicated beachside holiday.The villa consists of a main house with 2 master bedrooms, a living room (which can be configured as a 5th bedroom), a dining room and a large fully equipped kitchen, plus a separate 'casita', or guest house, just a few steps across the small courtyard, consisting of 2 non-connected bedrooms.


The waves are often gentle enough for leisurely swims right in front of the villa, because of the smooth sandy bottom in our choice location. However, because on other parts of the beach, the ocean bottom changes to cobblestones, we are fortunate to have within sight of the house, two surf breaks that have some of the best and most consistently ride able waves along Mexico's Pacific Gold Coast. Down the beach, about 7 houses south of our villa, is the fast and exciting, left hand surf break. The more forgiving and fun, right hand break, which was the site of the Mexican National Surf Contest, is only a short stroll beyond that. Sayulita is becoming internationally known as an excellent spot for the experienced surfer as well as an ideal place for those eager to learn.

MASTER BEDROOM #1 features a king-sized bed with a carved stone headboard, an exceptionally spacious bathroom and a fabulous view of the ocean including the surf break. There is built in Air Conditioning in all 4 bedrooms, including this one.

MASTER BEDROOM #2 is even bigger than Master #1. It has its own private entrance, private bathroom and also has the option of being connected by a common door to Master Bedroom #1. It is spacious enough to easily accommodate a king sized bed and two other single beds. It can alternately be provided with 4 single beds. It is light and airy and like all the bedrooms, it has a fabulous view of the ocean. Like all 4 of the bedrooms, Master Bedroom #2 has built in Air Conditioning.

The HIDEAWAY BEDROOM has its own separate entrance, and it normally comes with two single beds which can be configured as a king if requested. It also has a toilet in an alcove of the room behind a shell curtain and a hot water sink “ensuite”. Its window provides a view of the ocean, shaded by mature tropical trees. Because of its situation, this room is ideal for teenagers or others seeking privacy. This bedroom has it's own individually controlled Air conditioning.

The upstairs EAGLES NEST BEDROOM was originally designed as an artists’ studio by the owners. It is accessed by an outdoor stairway covered with hand painted Mexican tiles. The Eagles Nest has unmatched views of the ocean and jungle as it is the only bedroom which has some windows facing in all 4 directions. This spacious, light filled, room comes furnished with a king sized bed to provide a very romantic and very private nest with a sweeping view of the beach and jungle below. The room is ample enough that, as an alternative, it can easily accommodate a king and 2 single beds or 4 single beds if arrangements are made in advance. This art studio/bedroom now contains its own brand new bathroom, with toilet, shower, glass sink and granite countertop. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, plus all 4 bedrooms also have their own, built in, individually controlled Air Conditioning.

BEDROOM #5: Because the spacious living room is a mirror image of Master Bedroom #1, and it too has an exceptionally large bathroom of it’s own, it can be used as 5th Bedroom, with single or king bed, if specifically requested. Guests generally use the broad shaded veranda as their living room and dining room, because the weather is usually so inviting that everyone wants to spend as much time as possible on the veranda with the beach spread out before them only steps away.

In summary: We are right on the beach, close enough to easily stroll into the center of town yet just far enough to be private quiet and peaceful. We can see both surf breaks from the house and easily walk right to them. We are on the desirable north side of Sayulita, but we don't need to climb any hills and we are still so close to the restaurants and shops and surf breaks, that we don't need to get in car to easily participate in everything the town has to offer. There are many great restaurants in Sayulita and we have a large, fully equipped kitchen, so sometimes we take advantage of the fact that we can hire our sweet and trusted housekeeper Delia to cook us an authentic Mexican meal for a very reasonable price. I am confident that everyone in your group will be delighted if you get to stay at what renters keep telling us is the best beachfront house in Sayulita

To see our location better, on the above MAP click on the word "SATELLITE" in the upper right hand corner. Then to zoom in, click several times on the "+" in the upper LEFT corner of the map. Our property has very broad beach frontage, right on the sand. We are situated a good distance from our neighbors on either side and are fortunate to have a large grove of mature coco palms and manicured lawn as the neighboring property behind us. The sandy ocean bottom right in front of our house makes it a safer place to swim than practically anywhere along the entire beach, except for any body surfing or boogie boarding, go right in front of Don Pedros restaurant on the beach in the town center, only a short walk from our home. When sitting on our shaded veranda, one can feel very private and privileged and serene and yet the blue Pacific is invitingly close just a few steps away. We picked this spot because it is in the ideal location, close enough to easily stroll into the center of town in 10 minutes and yet just far enough from the busy center to keep out location, peaceful and quiet, and serene.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: For many years I was an editor of motion pictures and television in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. My wife is a fine artist/painter who grew up outside of New York City and spent her summers at their beach house on the Jersey Shore. My wife's family are Canadians who live all across Canada from Montreal to the Canadian Rockies to British Columbia. Our daughter grew up in California, loves to swim and now that we have a house on the beach in Mexico, she became fluent in Spanish and she even learned to surf.

Why the Owner Chose North End (Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico):
Although we have traveled all over the world to places like Bali, Hawaii, Guatemala, Europe, El Salvador, Canada, both coasts of the USA and many places in Mexico, we didn't get to Sayulita until 2000. It was the perfect little fishing village that we had been looking for, where the food is good, the local people are friendly, it's a quick easy flight from the USA, and it was the prettiest curve of beach we had ever seen. By 2001 we went back to buy a vacation home and found this perfect house right on the beach. My wife Sharon loved the classic hacienda style of the house and all the elegant antiques that came with it. My daughter Heather loved the fact that it was right on a soft sand beach where she could swim and play, and I loved that I could see two fabulous surf breaks that I could stroll down the beach to surf, within sight of the house. Less than a year after we purchased it, we loved it so much that we decided to live there full time, which we did for a year and a half to seize the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the culture, learn Spanish, and really get to enjoy this fabulous spot. We now live in Santa Barbara and visit the warm tropical waters of Sayulita as often as we can, but since we can't be there year round, we like being able to share it's pleasures with others.
