About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom , 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Our romantic, colorful home, Casa Soleada ("Sunny House") with its salt water pool, surrounded by bougainvillea and hanging vines, is the perfect escape for a couple searching for a fun filled vacation.

Casa Soleada is nestled into a hillside above the Pacific Ocean and offers you a modern Mexican design, great comfort, stunning ocean views, and a lush tropical garden with two decks and a dip pool (2.5 meters x 3 meters). Our home is a splendid place to watch migrating humpback whales, vivid jungle birds, and dazzling sunsets.

We built Casa Soleada in 2001, with the help of an imaginative local architect who has now added the pool and decks among the palm trees and bougainvillea. Placed at the north end of Sayulita Bay, among other beautifully designed homes, and facing west, we're about a 15 minute walk to the village of Sayulita. From our home you'll benefit from the serenity, superb views, and easy access (three minute walk) to the north end (quiet end) of the beach.

The same talented architect has recently completed a casita in the garden. The casita is NOT rented, you do not have to share your privacy or the pool with anyone else. And, you may use the deck of the casita to view birds and other gifts of nature. Built up over the jungle it's almost a tree house -- we call it El Nido, The Nest.

Casa Soleada offers outdoor living with security. The living area and palapa (coned shaped palm roof) dining area are open to the ocean breeze, but safely placed high above the garden. Since we began renting Casa Soleada in 2003, no guest has ever lost anything from this house. Not once!

Our large air conditioned bedroom, with a firm queen-size bed and beautiful wooden closets, has screened and barred windows, and unbreakable glass doors and windows.

Other features you will love about Casa Soleada include our mosaic outdoor shower off the main bath, and our bougainvillea surrounded balcony, perfect for margaritas or moon gazing.

The pretty blue tiled kitchen has an island, good cookware, and all major appliances. And Casa Soleada's colorful art and furnishings are of Mexican and South American design, enhanced by photographs of Mexico.

Sayulita is still a charming fishing village, but becoming discovered by tourists; that means we have all the services you'll be searching for. Very good shops, dozens of restaurants, cafes, excellent artists, and a wide variety of activities from Spanish lessons at the bookstore, to surfing lessons on the beach, to zip lines, horse back riding, and eco-tourism in the jungle.

If you reserve Casa Soleada for more than one week (8 nights or longer) we will send a driver to Puerto Vallarta airport to meet your flight. He'll put you and your bags in the van, take you grocery shopping, and delivery you to Casa Soleada, FREE.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a retired English/American couple who "found" Sayulita in the late 90s when Cynthia ran a photography workshop in Mexico. In the year 2000, we came to Sayulita to spend the winter ~ before we left we'd bought property, contacted a wonderful local architect, and drew up plans for Casa Soleada. We spend much of each winter here ~ otherwise we travel or live in Bandol, France, where this photo was made. We also rent our house near Aix-en-Provence.

Why the Owner Chose Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico:
In 2000, Sayulita was a quiet and almost unknown fishing village north of the resort town, Puerto Vallarta. While we've seen a lot of changes in Sayulita, most of them are positive, and in our neighborhood, the far north end of town, life remains peaceful. We have the choice of joining in the activity of Sayulita or remaining in the calm, tropical atmosphere of our home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love walking in the jungle and along the beach, especially the quiet north end. From our balcony we watch humpback whales, exotic birds, and admire the extraordinary sunsets Mother Nature gives us. Then we can walk or drive into town for dinner. Evenings are busy in Sayulita ~ many shops are open and there's a special positive energy not found many places.
