About the property

Private Dipping Pool! 1 BR Huge Ocean View Guest House. Super-fast WIFI!

Before sending reservation requests please take the time to read the whole description, to make sure we are are a good fit for your needs.

This stunning modern home is located in one of the Sayulita's premier locations, walking distance to fantastic restaurants, shopping, surfing or just sitting at cafes for people watching. Yet the property is just far enough away and totally private to still offer views of the Pacific Ocean, unspoiled jungle, and the quaint village of Sayulita. You might not want to leave hammocks or the private salt water plunge pool or just read and nap. It is easy to watch the ocean for hours. There is amazing bird watching from the house: the little green parrots, the Black-throated Magpie Jays, Macaws and even Chachalacas ( if you never see one, you'll definitely hear it); these are a few of the 336 species living in the area. Let us arrange for an incredible whale watching tour from December until early March. The tour is led by a research oceanographer who follows their migration patterns up and down the North American coast and knows every whale's name by sight. Hike through the jungle to secluded beaches and picnic before jumping into the surf.

The home was designed by a well known Mexican architect in true contemporary style using concrete for wonderful inside/outside living areas. Handcrafted custom Parota wood louvered doors open onto the patio and the plunge pool area. Every individual detail was carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the unique and comfortable design, such as the onyx walls, and custom made furniture. The king sized bed feature 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, and makes a perfect spot to relax and watch one of the 300+ DVD titles in the media library. If you can't completely leave the outside world behind, there is super fast WIFI throughout.

The guest house is perfect for one couple, but the main house and apartment can accommodate six others for a total of eight. Our full time English speaking manager, Felipe, will answer your questions and help with all of your needs. We also provide housekeeping. Want to have a private cook come in to prepare Mexican meals some of the time you are there? Or have a masseur set up a table on our terrace for an ocean view massage? These and even private yoga instruction can easily be arranged.

- 1 Bedrooms and 1 Bath (sleeps 2)

- King sized bed with 100% Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets

- A/C in bedroom and ceiling fans throughout

- Full kitchen with stainless appliances, blender, microwave, coffee maker

- Plunge pool and covered view terrace

- 100% cotton towels, and beach towels provided

- Easy 10 minute walk to village plaza or beach

- Full time English speaking manager and housekeeping staff

A car isn't necessary but lots of folks do prefer to have a car or rent a golf cart while at the house. You can always get a $5 taxi to the house, day or night... they are waiting on the plaza. Ask us to help arrange transportation from the airport or we really like Gecko Car rental, and Europcar, During the summer months, roads can get slippery in the rain, so golf carts or 4-wheel drive are best. For golf carts, our renters really like Pacific Coast Golf Carts, Gabe Fernandez, #45-A Calle Revolucion

Please note: Although there have been no reported cases of Zika virus in the area and you are pregnant or considering getting pregnant, please talk to your physician before coming down. As a precaution, we suggest taking out travel insurance.

What makes this condo unique

Sayulita, like all of Mexico, is a lively town with many traditions and you might be lucky enough to arrive during one of the many festivals. In addition to hearing the waves crash and crickets chirping, you might also hear music, kids playing, the parrots screeching and roosters doing their wake up calls. Please feel free to contact me before booking if you are particularly sensitive to this atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My boyfriend and I were looking to escape the Canadian winter and get some sun and relaxation and Casa Brava was just perfect for that! The place was amazing, very interesting architecture, and gorgeous views. The walk to town took us around 10 minutes and although it is quite steep, we enjoyed the exercise. We put the kitchen to good use doing much of our own cooking (however every restaurant we went to had amazing food...we especially loved Fajita Banana.) Fillipe, the caretaker, was very accommodating and friendly, always making sure we had everything that we needed. We would love to come back to Casa Brava one day and rent the entire house with a group of friends and family!!

Mind Blowing

  • 5 of 5

I have to say, this is one of nicest places I've stayed. The open air style of this place adds to the real feel of a Mexican surf town. Views are incredible. The house is a perfect walking distance from the festive sounds of the night. This place comes equipped with anything you will need for your stay, including a great kitchen for cooking some of the yummy things one can get from the many markets. Filipe and Suzanna are amazing people. They look after the place. They will ensure all your needs are met. I definitely plan on coming back to this amazing place. Thanks you so much Casa Brava for a life changing trip.

Amazing oasis

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 days in August at this casita and cannot say enough good things. The casita is beautiful and very thoughtfully decorated. It has a small plunge pool, a large terrace and many outstanding views of the ocean, the beach, and the jungle. It's a short, convenient walk into town to go to the beach or the fun restaurants of Sayulita, but it's a pretty great place to hang out, relax, and make dinner.

Dale was a fantastic host - very communicative and had many suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area. The caretakers are also amazing and very helpful. This was a perfect getaway, and I hope to be back soon!

Terrific property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a two-night stay in this apartment on our first trip to Sayulita in 8 years. The location, apartment and visit were wonderful! The property is enough of a walk from town to have some privacy and quiet but close enough to get anywhere on foot. And the views are amazing. We were impressed with how well-designed, clean and well-appointed this apartment was and how responsive and helpful the owner and his manager. There were many tips on dining in town-all of them spot on. We arranged for the housekeeper, Suzana, to cooked us a traditional dinner one evening. It was delicious! We enjoyed the dipping pool to cool off and enjoy the evening views. We were also very impressed with the water capture and treatment system onsite that allows potable water. We would definitely come back.

Beautiful view and nice wading pool

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable bed and beautiful views! The salt water wading pool was great for relaxing and cooling off. The house is at the top of a steep hill so easy to walk into town but we needed to take a taxi to get back to the house but the taxi rides were less than 3 dollars from town to the house. Great WiFi and all necessary amenities for a comfortable stay.

A perfect tropical getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with the 1-BR apartment at Casa Brava! The views were stunning, the accommodations comfortable, and the service impeccable. The apartment sits atop a hill overlooking the town, beach, and ocean. The private wading pool with unobstructed ocean views was the highlight of our trip.

Dale made provided us with a very helpful introduction to the town and some great food recommendations. Felipe and Suzanna (the apartment caretakers) were welcoming, helpful, yet inconspicuous.

Would recommend stopping for groceries on the way in from the airport (we arranged transport with Jose Ramos cabs and they will stop with you); the food in town is delicious but the views from the apartment's patio are so wonderful that you may want to eat at home for a few meals. We loved watching the sun rise with our morning coffee.

The apartment is perfect for a couple. I don't think we could imagine staying anywhere else in Sayulita. An unforgettable experience.
