About the property

2 BR, 2.5 Bath, wonderful neighborhood on the Popular South Side

CASA TARZAN is a 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath home with a pool. Sometimes it can be combined w/ Casita Tarzan for 1 more bedroom & bath, but normally the two units are completely separate. Both bedrooms upstairs in the CASA are Air Conditioned! You'll feel the magic in the varied and detailed great room with its terrace and palapa-covered cabaña by the pool with the jungle waterfall. Up the outside staircase you find two upstairs bedrooms & ensuite bathrooms - and above that a rooftop and sunny viewing area. Fully stocked with cooking and dining items as well as linens.

Probably not suitable for small children as the pool is not gated and neither is the house. Also we may limit the number of children allowed. Note that there are stairs to the bedrooms.

Casa Tarzan is located on the road to Los Muertos beach on the popular South Side of Sayulita. Yet in 7 minutes (walking) you are soon enjoying the great restaurants on the town Plaza or the beach. Prices below.

Parking is available for one car near the front door. Washer & dryer onsite. Cleaning is available for 300 pesos per visit, more if you want laundry done. Ask the host.

Casita Tarzan is a studio apartment under Casa Tarzan, with its own entrance and no use of the pool. Casita Tarzan is listed separately on VRBO as #354203 and could be rented together with Casa Tarzan.

About Jeana Thomas

Kenny and Jeana had been looking for a home away from home for years and happened upon Sayulita 'by mistake' when we missed a turn and rolled into this sweet town in 2001. We've never gotten over it and spend as much time here as possible. We have a home for sale here in addition to the home we live in, Casa Tarzan, and the rental unit, Casita Tarzan.

Jeana Thomas purchased this house in 2008

Why Jeana Thomas chose Sayulita

We like the mix of Gringos and Mexicans in this adorable little beach town. We live, work and play all mixed up together. We don't care for walled communities, so Sayulita was more our style. We were attracted to the idea of building here, and ended up building two 2BR houses and a casita, all of which are for rent on VRBO.

What makes this house unique

I absolutely love living in Casa Tarzan. Everything about it is special. The kitchen is amazing, I do all my Internet work under the palapa by the pool, and then I float in the pool to relax. The walk to town for coffee or dinner is a pleasure, and I love walking through the jungle to Playa de los Muertos. We built it for our retirement (best laid plans) so we really paid attention to detail, texture, shape, color.

Great house. Not too far from downtown. The pool was nice during the heat of the day.

Quiet haven easy walk to the beach and shops

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Would recommend and visit again. Owner and her local staff were lovely and easy to contact and responded right away. AC in both bedroooms was amazing and the fan above the pool lounge area was perfect. Only thing I would suggest is maybe AC in the living area and a couple extra lounge chairs as we were 2 couples travelling but it wasn't a big deal. We all had a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host Dulce and her friends - they were terrific. It always makes me very happy to hear that people have had a great time in amazing Sayulita and our places there! I agree about an A/C in the downstairs, and it's on the list. There are two ceiling fans in there and most of the time a nice breeze through that area, but it was particularly hot while they were there.

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Casa Tarzan. I have to agree with the other reviews. The pictures honestly don't do it justice. It is a wonderful place to call home while in Sayulita. We have rented places thru VRBO all over the world and this one exceeded our expectations.

Jeana the owner was fantastic, there was nothing left to chance.

Look no further.

Quiet and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

I just spent two weeks at Casa Tarza for my annual surf vacation. Jeana, the owner, was super helpful both before and during my stay, with clear directions and information, and quick answers to my questions. The casa was gorgeous, with lovely views from the bedroom, balcony, and bathroom (!). It was nice to have a pool, and the downstairs living room's ceiling fans kept me cool even in the hottest part of the day. It's about a ten minute walk from the center of town, and I easily made the trek for morning and sunset surf sessions. It was a little far for me to carry a longboard, but I rented in town and could keep it at the beach anyway, so that wasn't really a bother. Do bring a flashlight, as it's up a hill with no lights. There's a great kitchen and even a (free!) laundry room. I really enjoyed my stay, and would absolutely stay here again.

Casa Tarzan

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at the Casa Tarzan for 9 days at the end of July and part of August 2013. We absolutely loved staying there and miss it already. Everything you could possible need for your stay is there, just bring your personal items, clothes, and enjoy your stay!! We enjoyed our mornings sitting on the palapa covered veranda off the living room, taking a shower in the beautiful open shower off the upstairs master bedroom, then our walk into town to enjoy the Mexican culture and food - then to the beach to sit and watch the ocean. Just an awesome place all the way around. Jeana is super thoughtful and I loved our conversation via emails prior to our visit, during, and after.

Jungle life in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

After reading the previous reviews I must agree! I would like to add that Jeanne went out of her way to make my stay wonderful in so many ways. Since she was not in Sayulita at the time, both her 'manual' and emails were well thought out and complete. I had to change my booking and she was so very thoughtful and generous. Luzi the cat and doing a little watering made it feel like my casa too. A wonderful stay and highly recommended.
