About the Property

1 BR w/1 King and 1 Full, 1 BA, Full Kitchen, Ocean View, Private Pool & Garden

BIENVENIDOS a Casa Escondida, your private and intimate tropical hideaway with private pool, garden, and views of the ocean, bay, and hills. "Escondida" means "hidden" and is an appropriate name for this small but elegant home. It is nestled in the hills and surrounded by a tropical garden. Consider yourself "lost" or "found" at this little retreat, which will be yours alone, where you can unwind, play, celebrate, or all of the above in an easy-going environment with beautiful views.

Casa Escondida is located in the exclusive Pedregroso neighborhood on the quiet north side of Sayulita. It is steps away from the most private and pristine end of Sayulita’s beautiful beach and within walking distance of the lively town center. After a 10-minute walk along the palm-lined beach or newly paved road you will find the first restaurants, shops, and surf break. Casa Escondida's proximity to the center of town is one of its attractions. It is close enough to walk to everything that Sayulita has to offer yet far enough to escape the hustle and bustle and find peace and tranquility.


Casa Escondida accommodates a maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults with 2 small children. The large bedroom has a king-sized bed and a double-sized bed. The double is built into a nook and perfect for 1 or 2 small children, or for day-dreaming. The room is air-conditioned and stylishly furnished with handmade local furniture and regional artwork. The bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and the open-air kitchen is modern and fully equipped. If you prefer not to cook and stay at home, arrangements can be made to have a delicious home-cooked meal delivered. The pool in front of the house is about 5' deep and includes a small wading/sitting/splash area. The patio is equipped with chairs, lounge chairs, and sun umbrella.

Regardless of whether you are inside, outside, or in the pool you will have fabulous views of the ocean, bay, and sunset.

Highway 200

Car: Not Necessary

The town of Sayulita is a charming fishing village, about a 35-minute drive away on Highway 200 through a lush mountain rainforest north from Puerto Vallarta. Low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand in this picturesque village. On the palm-tree lined beach you find lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for rent, beach cafés and restaurants, surf schools, and local fisherman who will take you fishing or bring you to pristine snorkeling areas. The ocean is great for splashing, swimming, and offers first-class surfing. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine such as Italian, French, Chinese, and Argentinean. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, mountain biking, kayaking, zip line adventures, horseback riding, visits to neighboring colonial towns and ancient pre-Columbian petroglyphs. In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening. Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a small family of three; Iris, Thom and son Max. Thom is from Cupertino, CA, a general contractor and founder of Hammerhouse Construction, Inc. Iris is from The Netherlands and has a background in finance. We love designing and building and are currently remodeling our 100+ year old fixer-upper in San Francisco, CA.

Why the Owner Chose North End (Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico):
When our son Max was only 3 months old we traveled to Sayulita for our first family vacation. At the very end of Calle Loma Linda we rented a vacation home with beautiful views of the ocean and an empty lot below ... It was 2002. We were in the midst of the financial crisis and there was no way then that we could afford to buy a home in San Francisco ~ but maybe an empty lot in Mexico? We fell in love with Sayulita and kept wondering about that lot. We were in Sayulita for a week or so but before we left we were the proud owners of an empty L-shaped lot. Now the dreaming could start! In 2007 we built Casa Escondida on the top part of the L-shaped lot. A one-bedroom casita ideal for the three of us to stay and share on vrbo.com/150901 with couples and other small families. The dreaming continued and in 2012 we built Villa Yerbabuena on the lower part of the lot. When we designed and built our homes we always had the privacy, comfort and needs of our family and friends in mind; Casa Escondida is a wonderful and peaceful place to play and relax. Nuestra casa es su casa!
