Casa Selva y Sol, means Jungle and Sun, and here you can enjoy both! Casa Selva y Sol in Sayulita is located upon a quiet hilltop on the north side of the village, surrounded by jungle and offering ocean views. A quick descent of eighty yards, and you are only 4 blocks from the beach and just 10 minutes to the Plaza. The gated & private road secures Casa Selva y Sol which is accessible by car or foot.When you stay at casa Selva y Sol, the house in its entirety as well as the pool is for your use exclusively.

In a neighborhood of million dollar homes, Casa Selva y Sol is the happy medium, offering four levels of living space and includes an additional level with a jungle fire pit gives you that secluded jungle feel. Inside, you will find handmade Parota wood furniture, local art, stainless steel appliances in the Palapa kitchen, Serta mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets and towels. There is purified water throughout the house. Open air living with the bedrooms having meshing over the windows for bug free evenings and sleeping.

Exquisite, huge views of the Pacific Ocean, surf break, the village and unforgettable sunsets combined with a four story floor plan allows guests separation, with three patios, and living spaces attached to each bedroom on different levels with their own entrances. Having the bedrooms and living spaces on different levels offers privacy and allows separation when desired, and of course everyone can come together for meals or pool time.

Pool Level, First Bedroom: Heading up from the fire pit brings you to the private plunge pool and patio along with the 1st level bedroom with bath. The queen size bed offers a view of the Pacific just past the pool; when you awake the ocean can be seen while still under the covers. The bathroom has a travertine shower, handmade copper sink and Italian Carrera Marble counter.

Street Level, Master Bedroom: On top of the garden level is the street level with the spacious master bedroom, master bathroom and covered terrace sitting area. The hand-carved head board for the king size bed almost distracts you from the ocean view through the large accordion doors. Without moving in bed you can see the Pacific Ocean through the old growth jungle. The low ceiling in the master bedroom offers a cozy and quaint sleeping area while the master bathroom is spacious and royal. The tile and granite flooring, Italian Carrera Marble counter, double hand-pounded copper sinks and double-headed shower with a pebble floor, invites a couple to live on vacation like royalty.

Kitchen Level: Above the master floor is the kitchen level, offering a covered and open-air dining room with antique lighting, Parota dining table for six and a bar top for two. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel Frigidaire appliances, utensils, blender, coffee maker, pots, pans and the kitchen sink has garbage disposal and a view of the Pacific Ocean. The entire kitchen area is covered with an 18 foot Palapa roof which has super unique lighting and ambiance at night for cooking and entertaining.

Top Floor Patio: Walking up from the kitchen to the top floor patio brings you to one of the most private and detailed views of Sayulita’s coast line. Just steps away from the coffee maker or blender, makes this the patio perfect for morning java or an evening cocktail.

Casa Selva y Sol in Sayulita offers comfort, privacy and tranquility to couples and families wishing to stay in a well-designed and unique home during their visit to Sayulita, Mexico.

About Theresa Newby

We are Jeff and Theresa; our daughter is Rachel. Here are a few words to describe us: travellers, foodies, sports, and family. We are travellers by nature and luckily our work in Calgary, Alberta allows us to enjoy a fair amount of it. Though it has been great experiencing all that the world has to offer we are thrilled to be setting up some roots in Sayulita. We love great tasting food, and I love cooking. Luckily this is a great combination. We get to enjoy it daily.

Theresa Newby purchased this House in 2012

Why Theresa Newby chose Sayulita

Why the Owner Chose Sayulita We fell in love with Sayulita; It is a one of a kind place! It has such an eclectic mix of personalities, and yet somehow it all meshes into a wonderful experience. This is felt at the beach, the stores, the restaurants, and even the walking through the neighborhoods. The beach goes on for miles and is great for walking. The waves are big enough to keep you entertained at all ages. The stores are made up of a variety of artisans that are great at their crafts. We are never disappointed in the one of a kind pieces that we can find here. The restaurants have great ambiance and food! We have found some of the best Mexican flavors here, and still have the ability to have Western fare when desired. There is enough here to keep us busy, yet somehow always stay relaxed.

What makes this House unique

The value of this property is in the atmosphere. It has a great location; close enough to walk to the beach and plaza, yet far enough to enjoy the privacy, as well as the peace and quiet this house offers. It is high enough in the hills that you can enjoy the fantastic views from any level of the house as well as the cooling ocean breezes. We are on a gated road with protected old growth palm trees as our neighbours. The open air design of the house offers great outdoor living and yet a feeling of privacy when desired. A truly wonderful feeling.

                                                                    Georgina F.

                                                                    Open architecture home in traditional Mexican style. The house is on the hillside overlooking the town and we were glad to return to it's peace and quiet. Lots of beautiful bird life every morning to wake up to and the dipping pool was perfect at the end of a hot day in town.

                                                                    The bedrooms units are on separate floors and each one needs to be locked up at night. This may not suit parents with small children. Our kids were teens so it worked out fine.

                                                                    Easy walk down to the North beach, but quite a trek up. We rented an electric golf cart and had no problems driving up to the house with a family of five.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thank you for staying with us Georgina. It was a pleasure having you at our house.

                                                                    Safe travels wherever your next adventure takes you!

                                                                    Jungle Retreat with a view

                                                                    Christine F.

                                                                    Sayulita has grown into a peppy, often crowded little town so being able to retreat to a mountaintop overlooking the entire bay is magic. The parrots, chacalaccas, magpie jays and iguanas are great, too. The house is quirky and rustic with a fabulous rooftop and a small pool, all very comfy and perfect for two couples. (NB The road up is very steep.)

                                                                    Gorgeous Views and Nice House

                                                                    Allison L.

                                                                    This house was very cool - extremely unique with a dipping pool, kitchen, breakfast patio, and top deck with views of the ocean and lovely sunsets/sunrises. It was more rustic than I expected (no A/C, doors never completely closed off from bugs), but the nights are cool and they spray for bugs and we never had an issue with critters in our room. The hill to the house is very steep, but you can rent golf carts or four wheelers if you don't want to do the walk. I would recommend this house!

                                                                    Great views and location!

                                                                    Megan G.

                                                                    We had a great time at Selva Y Sol. The walk up and down the hill to town only took about 10 minutes and the location was quiet and private. It was very hot while we were there but the ceiling fans and breeze kept the house cool enough and the bugs away. Bed was comfortable and everything worked. We would certainly stay again.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    rebecca o.

                                                                    This house was perfection! It is a modest home with incredible views. It is about a 10 minute walk to everything. The hill into town is no joke, but the privacy, peace and quiet and views are well worth it. My husband and I shared it with my parents which it is perfectly designed for. Everyone had a lot of privacy and we could not hear each other from room to room but there were great areas to all hand out together. We spent most of our hanging time together on the very top deck because the lounge chairs were comfortable and the views were incredible. The birds singing every morning and most of the day were spectacular. For being so close to everything you really feel like you are alone at this home. The accommodations were modest but very comfortable. They offer everything you need including beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the multiple fans in each bedroom made each hot day and evenings enjoyable. The home was very clean and it was a great bonus to have someone come in and empty the garbages and wash the dishes half way through our week. Theresa was incredible helpfully and responsive during our stay responding to my messages promptly and with answers every time. We felt very safe. The pool is delightful. Small, just for cooling off, but perfect for several people to sit around in and relax. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to adults looking for a perfect house at a great price. Sayulita is a sweet little town that makes you feel welcomed and is easy to enjoy. The people of the town were wonderfully welcoming and enjoyable. The main beach can get quite busy so I suggest venturing to the close-by areas or just walking down the main beach for a few minutes for more tranquillity. Don Pedro's is a delicious restaurant perfect for dinner by the ocean at sunset. Mary's is a hidden gem for breakfast right by the square. We had a fantastic vacation!
