About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Nestled in the tropical rainforest, Estrella del Mar is a model of Mexican Modern architecture, designed to unite luxury and sustainability. With spectacular 360 degree views of both ocean and untamed jungle, Casa Estrellita at Estrella del Mar offers the utmost attention to detail and respect for the environment.

Situated in the exclusive neighborhood of Vista Mar, just a short walk from the center town, this estate provides views from San Pancho to the north, across the bay and around the point, to Playa Carricitos to the south. It is surrounded by virgin jungle, offering a rare opportunity to live luxuriously in nature.

Casa Estrellita is situated atop Punta Crucecita, at the southern end of Sayulita's main beach. The secluded cove known as Playa Los Muertos is also just a short, scenic walk away. Choose between great surfing and socializing on the main beach or swimming and snorkeling at Playa Los Muertos, where the waves lap gently against the rock formations. Or, simply stay at home, relax, and enjoy the views.

Watch the whales from your bedroom. See the stars from your terrace. Leave your cares behind. Escape to Casa Estrellita at Estrella del Mar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Waking up back in our own home today, still reeling at the wonderfulness of your place and the town in general. Thank you so much for providing bird books in both houses--we forgot both our books and our binoculars! We are avid birders, so it almost made me cry. We saw 13 new species we'd never seen before, some of which even the books didn't identify.

The houses are real architectural marvels--so well done, and so completely different than anything else we saw on our long walks everywhere. Each house has it's own perfect charm.

Thank you for the best vacation we've had in 25 years together...truly special. We hope to come back next year.

Great peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

House was nice and had every thing we needed. Pool made the trip, just wish it was private to this house and not shared w one other house. The lady and gentleman taking care of/cleaning the home were very unobtrusive.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear what a great stay Trent had. To ensure that our guests are getting exactly what they expect, we always let everyone know beforehand, from our initial reply, that the pool is shared equally between both homes. The pool area is totally separate, has its own separate entrance, and is located in between the two houses. It is the only communal aspect to the property. The pool and terrace are also amply sized to accommodate four persons comfortably with fully reclining lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas.

perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Better than we imagined. Gorgeous views of the beach, Plenty of privacy at the pool.. we saw our neighbors only once! we loved the birds which surrounded our balcony each day, green parrots and all. found short cuts to town, beaches and shops. kitchen had all we needed. shop for the fresh fish, visit the great family on Playa muertos for shrimp and the most delicious sauce i have every had!. Beach chairs would be a good addition, try to buy some on the way into town to save money. Owners were FABULOUS.. attended to all of or questions with in minutes..POOL WAS WARM...

Meh, for a couple just stay at the villa amor complex. Pictures are old, pool is cold but nice and balcony is useless. I've stayed at 6 homes over the years, it's a 3 star.

Owner's Response: We look at every review as an opportunity to ensure our guests are receiving an experience that meets the standards of excellence that we set for ourselves. We were both surprised and disappointed to read Shawn's 3 star review as we had checked in with him during his stay and he gave us no indication that he was dissatisfied. Shawn's review is cryptic, so it is a bit hard to interpret his issues, but we will attempt to address every one of them here. In regards to the pictures he mentions, the house looks essentially the same as it is shown in the photos. We actively work to maintain the property, so certain minor items such as pillows, patio umbrellas and lounge chairs have been refreshed. Since these changes are only slight variations, we do not feel it is necessary to retake the photos. In regards to the balcony, we are not sure what Shawn means. Our balcony is large enough for 2 people to lie fully reclined and savor the sun and, additionally, for 4 people to enjoy dining al fresco at the table under the shade of an umbrella. We are happy to hear that Shawn liked the pool, although we are baffled when he says that it was cold. Our pool is heated by a solar powered system and it is always quite warm. If it were cloudy for several days in a row, the pool may not be as warm as usual, but it would never be cold without a total mechanical failure. We double-checked with our pool man and all the systems were operating correctly during Shawn's stay. At that same time, our other guests who shared the estate and the same pool had no complaints. When Shawn compares us to a hotel, he does not distinguish between two different experiences. We offer a level of privacy and autonomy not available in a hotel. We are an exclusive estate with two fully-equipped, independent homes where you will share the pool with at most 1 other couple. At the hotel Shawn mentions, you will share the pool and the grounds with up to 45 other couples. Incidentally, the day after we received Shawn's review, we heard from a guest who stayed in the same house as Shawn just one week prior. She wanted to share how incredible her vacation with us was and how much she enjoyed her time there, which confirms for us that Shawn's review likely comes from his personal preferences. We understand that we may not be the perfect fit for Shawn, but we are confident that our property is accurately represented by the photos, that our level of service is excellent and that our setting is exceptional.

Awesome view from the pool area!

  • 5 of 5

House is very secluded, short walk from the beach/town. Much easier walk when the stairs are open to the beach! House was exactly as described, view from the pool is much better than the pictures, it's incredible. No loud noises from the beach/town, only the sounds of the jungle. Great communication with AnnMarie, highly recommended home!

BEST VRBO Experience we have ever had ... Book this place.

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has been in the luxury boutique hotel world most of her career, a special place is not about the sheet count or the soap in the bathroom, it is about how you are treated and the location.

Estrella de Mar has these two figured out... the place is within easy walking distance to busy Sayulita, but, you feel like you are away from it all. We stayed in Marita and the views of the ocean, butterflies, birds and the pool were just fantastic.

Also while we were there as can happen, there was a mechanical problem and the owners found a solution within minutes which does not always happen in Mexico and we continued with our vacation. Thank you Ann Marie for your professionalism and for being the best VRBO owner we have ever dealt with ... we will be back ! L & K

Cool House, Amazing Owners

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at Estrella/Marita. Absolutely love Marita. Great set-up, amenities, pool, views, location - the whole enchilada. Perhaps the most exemplary aspect of this rental was the owners. Anne Marie was incredibly responsiveness to any/all concerns - before, during, and after - cannot say enough, huge kudos! The location up high affords the highest degree of privacy and solitude. The constant soothing sounds of surf and birds made for a sublime hilltop experience. Several options (and shortcuts) to town and beach(s) revealed themselves - the proximity up and away from the fray was well worth the short walks. A return to Sayulita will mean a return to Marita, for sure.
