About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

One of Sayulita's finest luxury homes, Villa Buena Vista is perched on a bluff overlooking the beach and beautiful Sayulita Bay. A palm-lined, tranquil beach is just 5 minutes away, restaurants and shopping another ten minutes walk along the sands. A combination of hacienda openness and modern luxury, the villa boasts 2 master suites and a 3rd bedroom with bath and wet bar. These bedrooms are steps from our spectacular, saltwater infinity pool and jacuzzi. In addition, we have a semi-attached, 2 level casita, with full kitchen, luxury living room and spacious master suite. Every bedroom in the complex is air-conditioned and boasts spectacular ocean views. The villa also has an airconditioned kitchen/family room, (unique in Sayulita), that opens out to a lush, enclosed garden. In all, the complex sleeps 8 in beds and ten if sleeping sofas are used. The villa may be rented without casita. If the casita only is rented, pool and garden access are excluded. Please contact us for more photos and virtual tours .

ENTERING Villa Buena Vista is like stepping into a Sayulita post card. Sayulita's most famous view, of the ocean, surf break and Sayulita Point, is visible from nearly everywhere in the complex. The entire upper floor of the villa was designed as one, large open space, with gradually descending levels defining the kitchen/family room, dining room and palapa. All interior wall systems are beautiful parota-wood-trimmed glass panels, which were designed to maximize views. The walled garden/courtyard features a hi-end SMEG gas barbeque, with dining set and sun umbrella that are only steps from the kitchen. The kitchen itself is American style, with stainless steel appliances, polished cement counters and spectacular views. Across a low-walled, central passageway is our family/tv room, with a cozy, wraparound sofa, large flat-screen t.v. with dvd player and an extensive dvd collection--featuring many classics. All cabinets and other woodwork are of teak-like, parota wood and done in the Balinese style.

Three steps down from the kitchen/family room is our spacious, spectacular dining room. (we guarantee you will never forget meals taken there). A large table seats up to 12 and is framed by a Moroccan style, gas fireplace on one end, and an antique Tibetan door, painted in the temple style on the other.There is also a small bathroom in this area. Tastefully placed and lighted throughout this level is our extensive collection of ethnic and modern art, accented by an abundance of tropical plants. The entire dining room is open to the palapa, so that you may enjoy your meals and the spectacular views simultaneously.

Our fabulous palapa--with its wraparound sofa system that also seats up to twelve--may be entered from either end of the dining room. Enjoy the great views from here while cozying up with your friends and family, surrounded by tropical plants and wonderful art and lighting.

From either side of the palapa, twin-spiraling staircases lead down to the pool and bedroom level of the villa. People who know say that we have the most spectacular pool setting in Sayulita. The infinity pool and jacuzzi have a state-of-the-art saltwater filtration system, the water sparkling clean without that annoying chlorine smell and residual. The pool is 6 feet deep--with a lounging platform and shallow kiddy area--and the jacuzzi holds up to 6 people. Our favorite thing to do every evening is to take a delicious hot soak in the jacuzzi, followed by a refreshing swim. Afterwards, we stretch out on chaises and relax to the sound of waves on the shore; then doze off while stargazing or meditating on the twinkling lights of the village of Sayulita.

Just steps from the pool area are two spacious master suites. The suites are mirror opposites except for art, with king beds, and accented by the same Balinese style woodwork and detail found on the main level. The bathrooms are large, with separate tumbled marble showers, elegant lighting and artifacts. Between the two suites, along a short gallery hall, is the third bedroom. This room features a wet bar and fridge, (very handy for morning coffee and pool drinks), and has a trundle bed from Oyster Bed in San Francisco, that forms 2 twins. Sheets and linens are in a handy wicker storage trunk that fronts the bed. This room also serves as a small day/living room when not used for sleeping.

Last but not least is our charming, 2-level casita that was inspired by the houses of Old Ibiza. The upper level features a full kitchen and a living area with another spacious, wraparound sofa. The sofa had memory foam cushions and is twin-bed width, roomy enough for two people or children. This room opens to a small terrace with cafe table and spectacular ocean view. The casita is designed with the same attention to detail as the villa, and is filled with wonderful art and artifacts. There is also a flat screen, satellite tv, with dvd player.

Follow a romantic, turret staircase down to the master suite, which features a second ocean view terrace and full bath. The first thing you see when you open your eyes in the morning is that fabulous view of the ocean and Sayulita Point. When shared with friends and family, the casita may be entered from the villa's front garden.

What makes this villa unique

We end each night with a delicious soak in our jacuzzi, followed by a swim in our incredible infinity pool; after which we doze off while stargazing and listening to the rythm of breakers on the shore.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 14 days in Villa Buena Vista. We were 5 adults, a teenager and a toddler.

This house is beautiful, nice layout, very clean. A lot of details and nicely arranged lights, which creates a nice ambience in the evening.

The infinity pool is amazing, especially in combination with the view. Dealing with the owner and the staff was a pleasure.

We recommend to rent a golf cart, makes the way up to the house easier and was a lot of fun. Overall an amazing holiday for us, if you choose this place, you won't be disappointed.

Villa Buena Vista is my new happy place

  • 5 of 5

We recently took all 5 of our kids – ages ranging from 30-14 – to Sayulita and spent a magical 10 days at Villa Buena Vista. THIS is my new happy place. I already miss the tranquil sound of the ocean and the absolutely unmatched view from every angle of the house. There is such love and attention to detail that was put in to every part of this home. It is truly a unique experience. We all found ourselves a bit in awe of it regularly… and yet, it felt so homey.

We ended up in Sayulita during a very busy time and we were all so happy that we had our beautiful Villa to retreat to every day – whether we were swimming in the gorgeous saltwater infinity pool, taking the short walk to the beach, curling up in one of the many cozy places and reading a book, playing games in the spectacular outdoor living room or enjoying authentic Mexican cuisine prepared for us in the wonderful kitchen while watching a movie. Truly, the memories we made as a family enjoying this house, and the wonderful culture of Sayulita, have left a permanent mark in our memory bank. We can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful house with a gorgeous ocean view

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week in Sayulita. This is our first time in Sayulita. It's a charming little town with a lot of characters. I'm so glad we selected this gorgeous house Jack and his late wife built. The view of the ocean from the house was breathtaking, and the infinity pool was incredible. We planned to spend most of our time on the beach but we ended up spending a lot of time relaxing by the pool. The house is very spacious. We had 6 adults and 3 young children and it has more than enough room for us. Jack and his staff were super friendly and helpful. They arranged the shuttle to pick us up at the airport and gave us tips on how to get around town. Whenever I had a question, I got response from them immediately.

The house is very close to the beach, but a section of the road is uphill and is pretty steep. If you have young chidren, I do recommend renting a golf cart.

This is one of the best vacations I ever had. I'm sure I will be back soon.

Everything anyone could ask for and more! Simply amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost 10 days there, and everyone wants to return asap. We had my 2 boys, ages 4 and 7, along with in-laws, and there was plenty room for more. The views are truly stunning from any vantage point, and we would have been content to never leave the house. The walk into town is quick going down and a little slower walking back as it is steep, but our 4 year old had no issues and the exercise felt good. There is air-conditioning in every room, and the beds are unbelievably big and comfortable. Everyone slept great each night. The in-laws loved the adjoining casita as it allowed them their privacy when the boys got too wild. The dining area is perfect for entertaining--we had other couples join us a few times. There was plenty of hot water to go around, and the place was kept very clean. We would love to return again next Thanksgiving.

The name is spot on, the view is fantastic! The house is very well designed, comfortable and well furnished. We had 8 people four adults and 4 kids, and it was nice to have so many places to hang out. The house has many seating areas for people to enjoy the view, read a book, or bask in the sun. As any house with a great view its up the hill, which means traveling the beat up roads of Sayulita. The drive up to the house is shocking to most, but by the end of the trip it's all part of the adventure. We could not have found a better house, Jack was great and the housekeeper & manager were very friendly. The kids love the 6 foot deep pool!!!! The hot tube was a real treat. Please don't stay here, you might book it when I want to go back with my family and we would never find a better house in Sayulita...
