Casa Vista Alegre sits majestically on 'Gringo Hill' overlooking the quaint town plaza of Sayulita. When this Non-Smoking house was first renovated in 2003, deliberate care was taken to maintain the history, authenticity and special feeling of the 'old style'; this is not a 'modern' house, but a very comfortable house, none the less. Known to most as 'the house with many doors,' Casa Vista Alegre is a home of brick, large timbers, and eight sets of stunning wooden/iron double doors. Sitting on the first rise above the quaint town of Sayulita, there is one short hill to navigate up from the town plaza, but the views make it totally worth the short "climb"!
The hand-crafted doors open onto an expansive wrap-around veranda, which overlooks the village, the beautiful bay of Sayulita, and the endless Pacific Ocean. Watching the surfers’ work their magic from your own private patio is a bonus!
The main floor of the home consists of Suite Principal, Suite el Medio, a full kitchen, dining area and airy living room. As of June 2016, the bedrooms ARE air conditioned with individual units to allow for perfect sleeping conditions. The kitchen and living areas are cooled by the fabulous ocean breezes thru the secure locking iron screened doors.
Suite Principal has a private entrance, private bath w/shower, kitchenette, satellite TV, air conditioning and luxurious king-size bed. (see photo) Enjoy the view of the crashing surf as you bathe in the open air shower!
Suite el Medio has a queen-size bed and individually controlled a/c, with an adjoining private bath complete with HUGE tub and dual showerheads. The bedroom offers a private entrance from the veranda, although it can also be accessed from the main living area.
The 500 square foot living room, with full kitchen and flat screen TV with satellite channels and NETFLIX capabilities, provides a spacious and relaxing gathering area. (see photo of this room).
Suite Abajo is accessed right inside the property gate, just a few steps up from a quiet residential street. An air conditioned suite with private open air bath, kitchenette, tiled floors, beds for four plus a queen size sofa sleeper, gives this room both quantity AND quality! Recently upgraded with beautiful tile work in both the bath and kitchenette.
Casa Vista Alegre is perfect for large groups who want to be together, but also want to maintain some privacy.
Although just 3 blocks from the beach, two private swimming pools provide the utmost enjoyment on the hot and sunny Mexican days as an alternative to the ocean.
Complete with a large architecturally designed infinity swimming pool with expansive pool deck this amazing tiled pool has built-in lounge chairs and perimeter seating. If you prefer a smaller pool with a bit of shade, there is a beautiful 'plunge' pool a level up, right off the main floor kitchen and living room.
Beautiful Mexican tile accents the main kitchen and baths, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The large living area, including full kitchen and veranda, affords plenty of space for families and extra sleeping room if needed. Although the living areas are not air conditioned, the fabulous ocean breezes keep it cool and comfortable during most of the year.
At Casa Vista Alegre the possibilities for family, fun, adventure, romance, and relaxation are endless!
Our property manager and grounds/pool gentleman are happy to assist with property issues...but please remember they are not available 24/7. Although willing, they work long hours and are not available time-wise to be a personal guide or concierge for extra requests. If you'd LIKE a "personal concierge" to make your activity arrangements, watch your kids, plan a meal, provide a cook, secure a golf cart rental, buy a computer mouse, suggest medical care etc...I have an excellent recommendation of a local that will be that person for you and on-call 24/7 during your stay. She is amazing and well worth the cost for those that need the extra attention while in Mexico.
PLEASE DO KEEP IN MIND, HOWEVER...this is a RURAL area of Mexico. And although rich in tourism, it has some very poor and desperate people. PLEASE always lock the casa when not there, and at night. PLEASE use the safe for valuables. PLEASE do not leave enticing valuables in plain site or outside, making yourselves and the casa a target for petty theft. Put computers, phones, cameras and of course cash...in a safe place and out of view.
ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER (disclaimer), that in rural Mexico and Sayulita in particular...the power occasionally goes out (or a breaker blows in the casa)....the internet occasionally goes out...the town's water occasionally goes out...the satellite TV occasionally goes out. At Casa Vista Alegre, we do our best to keep everything up and running, but sometimes we have to go with the Mexican flow and be patience. Please know that we will do everything we can to keep your services running smoothly, but sometimes those things are out of our control. That's when you head to the beach...and just grab a margarita and RELAX! If the small possibility of these things happening is upsetting or unnerving, then we are probably not the casa or town for you.
