About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Bedroom Attached Unit, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

In perfect Sayulita style...7000 sq. ft home with the best views in town of the surf and sunset! Everything you need for the perfect vacation!!!

Ocean view from every room and bathroom in the house! 2 swimming pools! Championship pool table! Satellite t.V.! Private garden with lawn, lounge, Palapa bar and bbq! Beautifully decorated; attention to detail throughout...Paradise awaits!

Situated just above the most beautiful part of the beach in Sayulita and cleanest water in the bay! Just north of the rivermouth...

Casa Vela is an exquisite luxury villa located on the north end of Sayulita overlooking the ocean, jungle and village. This unique house is a fusion of traditional Mexico and open-air beach living. The warm yellow walls and Saltillo tile floors invite you to sink in and relax with the ocean breeze and sounds of the crashing waves.

When you walk through the front door you are greeted by an expansive view of Sayulita’s bay and the beach that is only a short walk down the cobblestone street. The open Palapa living room is the perfect place to relax with family and friends, lounge by the infinity pool with a cold Cerveza, watch the game on the plasma screen tv, nap on the shaded outdoor sun bed, or shoot some pool on the championship pool table! You can check out the surf, watch the whales spout and the dolphins play from just about every room in the house as well.

The fully stocked kitchen with 15 ft. Bar has everything you will need to create wonderful meals from the fresh local ingredients. Hand crafted copper sinks, Talavera tile and an antique oven add to the rustic charm of this beautiful kitchen. In the adjacent Palapa dining area you will find a pounded copper table and built in gas barbeque where you can grill up and serve the “catch of the day” from the fisherman of the village. At your request, a personal cook can be arranged to prepare Mexican delicacies for you.

From each bedroom you will awake from a restful night’s sleep to see the ocean stretching out in front of you. Comfortable mattresses and pillows, high quality linens and towels add to the luxury of this tropical retreat. For your security and peace of mind we have installed security safes in each bedroom.

The entire house is adorned with hand-selected art, decorations and furnishings from throughout Mexico. Together, these elements create a fun and eclectic style that is the perfect complement to the amazing views from every room in the house. The thoughtfully laid out floor plan and incomparable ambiance is perfect for entertaining!

The separate upstairs Casita greets you with colorful rustic floor tiles and Mexican folk art. Patio doors open up so that you can enjoy the ocean breeze. Comfortable furniture and a compact but fully equipped kitchen area and a shaded garden patio make this Casita a perfect private hideaway.

We are certain that Casa vela is everything you are looking for in a vacation house with the perfect mix of casual luxury.

Please note that if you only rent a portion of the property, be assured that you will not be sharing the property with other travelers.

About cassie gann

My husband and I built Casa Vela and live in Sayulita full time. I am now working as a kindergarten teacher and Mike is designing and building beautiful custom homes. We love the community and culture of Sayulita and look forward to sharing our home with you.

cassie gann purchased this house in 2008

Why cassie gann chose Sayulita

The north end of Sayulita is beautiful and quiet, within walking distance to downtown and very close to the beach. The view from Casa Vela is quite possibly the best in town!

What makes this house unique

We love the location of Casa Vela...it is close to the beach and town with the most amazing view. Casa Vela is just far enough away from the town center that you won't have to worry about being kept up by the loud music at night and early morning roosters! We also love the two pool areas and the large kitchen which is perfect for entertaining! Our favorite thing to do is have a margarita and watch the sunset!!

Spacious with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

Casa Vela is very spacious, comfortably sleeping our group of 10. Gabriel was a fantastic host and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. The main living room offers an incredible view, refreshing pool, as well as a well-equipped kitchen and seating area. The only negative is that Casa Vela is located on a relatively steep hill and the walk up was difficult for some of our older group members. I would highly suggest renting golf carts in advance. All in all, it was an incredible experience and I would surely stay at Casa Vela again.

Beautiful home and great views!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Vela with a group of friends and their kids and loved the house and the proximity to town and the Playa Las Cuevas beach. The hill is a bit steep to walk in the heat, however it felt good to burn off some of the food/drink we ate non-stop! The staff and property manager, Gabriel, are more than helpful and accommodating. We drank coffee in the morning by the pool over looking the city, and cocktails at night by the pool before dinner. It's a beautiful house and great for a group! We will definitely be back!

Stunning Casa Vela

  • 5 of 5

If we could give this property 6 stars then we would, OMG the place is incredible. Every day you will find another hidden treasure, whether it is something you have missed that is hanging on the wall to the hidden giant chicken in the garden.

The property manager is extremely professional and can speak very good English and will help you with anything at all. This is a must in Mexico if you do not speak Spanish (like us)

This property has it all, including Maria the housekeeper that treats the Casa like her home and you like family.

The location cold not be better, stunning sunsets and magical sea views from all corners of the home.

We had another couple staying with us and having each bedroom on different levels made for privacy and comfort.

Remember you will spend a lot of time in the pool and on the pool table, dam we are rebooking our next vacation as it was truly the best holiday ever!

Thanks to everyone at Casa Vela and Sayulita.

Beautiful Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, authentic and incredibly comfortable. I spend the weekend here for my fiancee's 30th birthday with friends, and we hardly ever left the house. From the infinity pool overlooking the ocean, all the way to the huge commercial kitchen and breathtaking views we made ourselves at home and had an amazing time. I will definitely come here again the next time I visit Sayulita.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property - great layout, well appointed, lots of privacy and great flow. The property manager was extremely helpful and had margaritas and guacamole waiting for us at the time of arrival. I suggest renting a car or local golf carts as it's a bit of a trek from town, but the golf carts make the trip all the more fun. There's six true bedrooms and each is incredibly private - great for a multiple couples. I would stay here again and hope to soon!
