About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + built-in sofa, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)
The house has been tastefully upgraded, taking care to preserve the original Sayulita style. It still retains the rustic charm of handmade dishes and molcajete (traditional mortar and pestle) with the addition of modern amenities
Coming up the street the first thing you notice is a jungle of mango, avocado, bougainvillea and palms hanging over the garden walls.
A gateway flanked by pillars lead from the street to a winding staircase through the Garden, revealing a house with a palapa-covered veranda.
Casita Azulejos is a two-bedroom, two-bath home with an open floor plan that unites the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Traditional handmade tile floors throughout provide rustic comfort with authentic charm.
Located on a neighborhood street at the south end of Sayulita, Casita Azulejos provides a cozy sanctuary 2 blocks from the beach, and a 4-minute walk to the plaza at the center of town.
Cleaning staff and custom fridge stocking is offered for an additional fee. Please inquire.

Casita Azulejos is located just outside of the central part of Sayulita, The house is one of the older homes, but has been beautifully upgraded with tasteful Mexican furnishings and artwork. I keep it simple yet comfortable, the locals that have visited Casita Azulejos love that I have not gringo-fied the house. I try to keep it authentic Mexican style.
Sayulita population is about 4000, but you'd never know it. It's a small pueblo with modern amenities such as ATM's and a cell tower. The village is sweet and laid back yet has a lively night life, there is great shopping and lots of fresh fish, beautiful tropical plant and critter life, warm waters and intoxicating balmy nights.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I am a native of San Francisco, living just north in Marin County, California. I grew up hearing my mother tell tales of living in Mexico and going to art school in Guadalajara during the 50's, it always sounded so romantic and adventurous. I guess it got into my blood somehow. Today, I am a painting contractor with a degree in fine art and interior design. I too now have that special place in Mexico that I call my home away from home. I love to surf and swim in the warm water of Sayulita or the cool rivers of California. I enjoy doing improvements each time I visit my home in Mexico as much as enjoy my life in California, I'd say I have the best of both worlds. I am one happy person!
Why the Owner Chose Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico:
When I first stepped out of the jeep in the pouring rain in 2000 onto the plaza of Sayulita, It hit me - I had to have a place here, it instantly felt familiar. I later had a conversation on the beach with a man named Javier (d-2005) he explained to me that there are places on the earth that call to certain people, I knew this was one of those places for me. Never once have I had buyers remorse or any regret, Sayulita has a spirit about it that holds me, feeds me and is a place to call home. The people are special, the food is some of the best I've ever had, the sounds at night, the waves to surf, the fireflies in October, the interesting people that dare to come here all make a magic thing, I hope you feel it too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most of all I love how I slow down to human-speed when I'm here in Sayulita, The outdoor shower and jungle garden are a few of my favorite things about Casita Azulejos, I love reading my book in the hammock or falling asleep on the beach and not even having to get up from my towel to find lunch, the tamale lady magically appears just as I begin to get hungry, I love the early morning light as it hits the front veranda or walking down to the beach for a dawn patrol surf session. I love the man down the street cooking chicken and singing, I even love that darn gas truck with it's obnoxious tune - or the roosters any time of the day (or night), I love my neighbors and friends that I've gotten to know over the years, I love all the music and the fish. I love walking to the graveyard, I love the way the Mexican people seem to celebrate anything! I love to hear little kids running in the plaza and laughing, I love snorkeling off the Marieta Islands or riding Manuel's horses to see the sunset on the beach or taking a boat with Tigre to a hard to find surf break in a secret cove, I love the random fireworks for no apparent reason or the rogue carnival that comes to town. I love the shrimp truck, the vegi truck, the plastic broom truck, the fruit truck, the recycle truck..I love doing Yoga up on the bluff under the palapa in Shelly's class - the iguanas and geckos and birds, but most of all I love the way Casita Azulejos feels like a home.
