About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Joya (gem in Spanish) is truly a gem among the few condominium apartments in Sayulita. Bright and breezy, Joya is a picture perfect two bedroom apartment in Sayulita's fantastic Los Almendros, a small complex with 26 individually owned homes within five beautiful buildings. Known for its peace and quiet, the near north side location is ideal. A block and a half from a beautiful beach, just six blocks from Sayulita's central plaza. Easy, short walks to everything (surfing, paddle board, Spanish lessons, shopping and restaurants, yoga classes, boating/fishing excursions). No car is needed. Carefully decorated with native handcrafted furnishings, Joya is a fun place to spend your vacation. Joya is air-conditioned in every room (living as well as bedrooms), with our own high speed internet, and English speaking satellite TV.

Joya at Los Almendros also has an elevator that runs straight down to the garage - very convenient for carrying up baggage and groceries. But most importantly, we've made an effort for Joya to be comfortable and luxurious. From the native handcrafted furniture and decor, to the well appointed stainless steel kitchen (we love cooking), to the high quality bedding, Joya is comfortable, easy living. In addition, with each rental, we provide efficient, daily housekeeping. If you prefer to not be bothered, just let us know.

The pool is worth a special mention. The architect's intent was to design 'the best pool in Sayulita'. We probably haven't seen them all, but we're thinking he succeeded. Designed for beauty, lap swimming, and relaxing, the unique design is perfect for kids as well. There are four sections to the pool. A large area for swimming, a large 1 foot deep area for lounging (with or without a beach chair), a childs section, and a large section with bench seating and massage jets. The pool is surrounded by great lounge chairs and tables for dining. A large shady palapa area is also adjacent. Joya has a peaceful, relaxing feel we hope you can see in the pictures. With our two outdoor palapa roofed decks (great napping), three bancas (sofas) for relaxing, new beach chairs and umbrellas, and a concierge service to help with anything we haven’t thought of, you’ve come to the right place.


My family stayed at this wonderful property for 10 days and loved it. It is safe, clean, comfortable beds and has every amenity you need including maid service. Our 4 year old loved the pool, very family friendly. A nice touch were the chairs and umbrella that we used everyday on our daily outings to the beach, which is minutes away. Thanks for sharing your home with us.' Billings, MT -

So, turn off the TV. Read a good book. Relax by the pool. Take some great walks in the jungle or beaches. Eat some of the best (and best priced) food of your life. Or perhaps try surfing - that’s what drew so many people to Sayulita in the first place. Or...... do absolutely nothing. Joya is a perfect place for that. Trust us. We’re experts.

'Terrific Vacation. My family stayed at this lovely and clean condo for 10 days. The condo and grounds were immaculate, and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The condo is located so conveniently to the town square (and of course the beach), yet far enough away that you don't hear any noises. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. The condo had everything we needed plus more. We felt so safe and comfortable. Thanks again for a great vacation.' Donna - Linwood, NJ

“We had a wonderful relaxing week in this condo. I really loved being able to see the ocean and the sunsets from the living room and the front patio. We swam in the pool every day -- it's even big enough to get in a few laps. The beach is just a short walk away and beach towels were provided. You can buy FRESH tortillas every day from the little stores, fresh oranges for juice, papayas and mangos ripe off the tree, and all the guacamole fixings you could dream of. There is a shrimp guy that comes around in a truck and fresh fish in the market. Of course, there are also excellent restaurants of all types, both right around the corner and in town, just a few blocks away. We didn't have a car, we just walked around. The condo has everything you need. Bedrooms and baths are charmingly appointed and big enough to breathe in, the daily maid service is excellent. Best of all for us was napping on the banquettes in the living room and patio in the tropical breazes, checking out the local birds and plants, reading and doing nothing. This is a beautiful restful condo in a charming village.” Cynthia - TX

'We wanted to thank you for our wonderful trip and stay at Joya in Los Almendros. We could not have asked for a better place to stay in all of Sayulitha! Joya is indeed a gem. We absolutely loved your aesthetics, the interiors were beautiful, from couches to pillows to art on the walls and rugs on the floor. The kitchen was well equipped and everyone on the property was nice and helpful.This trip was restorative for us as a family and we come back with a great sense of well being, gratitude and appreiation for the culture and people of Mexico.Would definitely recommend it to friends and family far and wide :)' CA

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Joya is the Bermans' and Hovises' new apartment in Sayulita Mexico. Both families live most of the time in the Austin, Texas area. The Hovises also own Casa Maravilla across the street from Joya.

Why the Owner Chose Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico:
The Hovises followed the lead of their Surfer son, Matt to Sayulita many years ago and have owned Casa Maravilla for a few years. When the Los Almendros project got underway they convinced the Bermans to become their partners in it.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The gentle Pacific breezes waft over the palapa patio, this sweet unspoiled little town offers wonderful restaurants, fresh fish and produce for home consumption. The exquisite pool is a great place to cool down and the clean white sand beach is a quick stroll away. We get lots of reading done, visit with friends in a new way and just chill.
