About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sun, Sand, Sea... Our home has views of the ocean, jungle and village. Sea breezes waft over you while you sleep in comfortable beds, with great linens.

Nestled on a quiet hillside, Casa Cuiza overlooks the north end of the small town of Sayulita and the Pacific Ocean. Named after the geckos found here, this Casa is unique with its playful colors and hand carved pineapples in all the wooden doors and windows. The spacious kitchen with its long curved kitchen counter and island in typical mexican tile, has everything you need to make cooking a delight. The kitchen and living room are open creating plenty of space for families and get-togethers. The two couches in the living area can double as extra single beds. In addition to wireless internet, there are an assortment of books, dvds, and player to enjoy during your stay

Giving to the L-shape of Casa Cuiza, both the living, kitchen, and downstairs bedroom, extend through large double doors and covered terraces to a centered beautiful lawn, tropical garden, and pool area. The house has three bedrooms, two upstairs and one downstairs. Upstairs the master bedroom, with a king sized bed, is in a spacious circular room with high domed roof. Attached to the master bedroom is a large terrace that overlooks the garden, pool and the amazing pacific ocean. Guests have enjoyed the terrace for yoga, romantic dinners and even a private salsa class or two. The other 2 bedrooms, one upstairs and one down, have Queen sized beds.

The most prominent feature of Cuiza is it’s large private garden and lap pool. Tropical plants line a large grassy yard from which one can enjoy the view. The pool is ready for laps, or just to cool off.

It's only a 5 minute walk to both beach and town. A shared private driveway allows for parking.

My expert management team will make sure you have a wonderful vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family stayed at this beautiful home for a family reunion to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. We were awestruck at

the beauty, spaciousness, location, and cleanliness of the home and property. The furnishings were colorful, tasteful, and

so supportive to our week in this beautiful, quaint town. I whole heartedly recommend this as a perfect place for vacationing.

Great house, lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Casa Cuiza! Bette and the team at Casas de Primavera were super responsive and helpful. We had a few questions while we were there and they were answered right away. It was great to have the cleaning service come in a couple of times during our stay, as well as the yard and pool maintenance guys. The house itself is nice, comfortable, and well-appointed. It had all the cooking tools, utensils, and dishes we needed. It was great to have the lawn and pool for the kids to play as well. The house is also a quick walk to the beach and into town, so it was easy for us to get to where we wanted to go. I would definitely stay at Casa Cuiza again.

We really were in love with this place until 6pm the night we arrived. The owner states she had no idea of this festival that’s gone on for decades. I was not told anything or heard about this famous week in a December. We never slept from cannons going off to concerts blaring into our casita until 4AM . Owner did nothing and never offered any compensation for our misery even though we contacted her immediately with video and audio of the chaos. We never slept for seven days straight! We were there for 10 full days.

From the bulletin downtown.......

Anyone visiting Sayulita during the week leading up to December 12th will more than likely be awoken by the sounds of cannons, fireworks and church bells going off at 5:00 a.m., as Sayulita and Mexico celebrate Mexico’s patron saint, Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as La Virgen Morena. A long-lived tradition, Catholics in Mexico rise before dawn and attend mass. It is common to see Virgin Guadalupe altars in homes, simple homages to the “Queen of Mexico,” with framed images of “Our Lady of Guadalupe”.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I regret that your stay in Sayulita was not as you had hoped. I understand that Guadeloupe Days celebrations this year were unexpectedly and unusually noisy. As I indicated in our frequent correspondence during your stay my local contacts and property management team advised that the local police were not responsive to complaints, a situation that generated concern within the community of vacation renters. I had hoped that the 50% refund would have ameliorated a situation over which o had no control

Perfect HIdeaway

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cuiza is so perfectly set up that it was difficult to tear ourselves away to do the short (five minute) walk into town. Lounging by the pool can easily become the main activity.The grassy area surrounded by beautiful flowering gardens is a relaxing oasis. Everything in the house was comfortable, clean and well cared for. We did not lack for anything. This is the perfect spot if you just want quiet time but it also offers easy access to the town for meals or other diversions. Would love to return with the whole family. There is something for everyone in a vacation at Casa Luiza.

Casa Cuiza is a beautiful five star house in which to have a wonderful holiday, the sum as great as the parts. Perched on the hill over town with a gorgeous view of the Pacific, you can hear the waves echo along the shore. It takes a mere five-minute walk to get both to the town centre and the long sandy beach. Verdant flowering gardens surround the house. The 25-meter lap pool offers a great swim workout. The owners have attended to furnishings that provide such a warm feeling, assuring the house is impeccably clean. The colourful kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals. The second floor bedrooms, each with their own terrace, perfect for meditation and yoga, overlook the garden with the Pacific in the background. We would return in a flash.

Airy and cozy villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa slept the 6 of us pretty comfortably. There are lots of doors and window that you can open so for the hotter months thats a plus being theres no AC. Having a grassy patch is rare in Sayulita so kiddies would like that. We had a few problems with the showers not working the first 2 days but a visit to the office quickly solved that issue. Its very close to town and on top of a kinda steep hill so I would recommend a golf cart rental if you have little kids or if you can't handle the walk. The bus stop is just down the unpaved hill, very close. No kidding about it being called "Casa Cuiza" we had a pretty big maybe iguana in our room one morning! awesome.

Casa Cuiza is authentic and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a lovely and restorative stay at Casa Cuiza. The garden and lap pool made for leisurely mornings. We often didn't make it to town until well after lunchtime! The home was clean and well appointed. It was nice to be away from all the hustle and bustle of town, but the walk was quick and easy.
