Casa Ilusion undertook a complete remodel in the summer of 2013. Having a swimming pool was the impetus for the project, but as we considered the possibilities it quickly became apparent that achieving the level of quality we aspired to meant undertaking a complete remodel of the house; new kitchen, all new bathrooms, redesigned floor plans in the bedrooms, new acid-washed stone tile floors throughout (non-slip surface), an expanded master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi and private sun deck. There is a Whole-House Clean Water Filtration System. The living room is flanked with new built-in couches. A new beach palapa features the same layout, also with built-in couches. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with beautiful plantings of rare tropical plants. We think you will find Casa Ilusion a unique experience in Sayulita that will entice you to visit us again and again.
Casa Ilusion in Sayulita is a unique, beachfront private home located on one acre of land with 74 palm trees, and 120 feet of beachfront. It is the ONLY beachfront home, not condo, ideally located on the north side, and is perfectly accessible to all the town without having to climb any mountains. No car is necessary either. As soon as you enter Casa Ilusion, you will see through the house to the beautifully landscaped grounds, lush with magnificent palms, and to the ocean beyond. Relax under a palapa, umbrella, or on a hammock by the ocean, take a swim in the new swimming pool with the sounds of the waves and the ocean breeze. Carry your board 200 yards up the beach to surf the left or right, or walk up the beach to dinner. This house is ideal for 4 adult couples or 2 families.
In addition to the Main house comfortably sleeping 6 itself, there is a beautiful Casita, just steps from the ocean, which comfortably sleeps 3. The Casaita is completely enclosed, A/C, a real 'Honeymoon Casita' with a Full Bath, and a beautiful palapa-style ceiling. In all, there is 4,000 square feet of living space.
Each spacious, air conditioned bedroom suite offers the highest level of comfort with high end luxury bedding, King beds, and are complete with their own private bathrooms. The master bedroom has a sunken bathtub that opens it's windows to an enchanting view of the palms framing the ocean like a perfect picture in paradise.
The main living space comes equipped with all of the amenities you need. A new large-screen HD TV, DVD & satellite cable. High speed Wi-Fi connection is accessible throughout the house and the grounds.
Casa Ilusion has its own private beach with palm trees which sits atop a five foot seawall, so you can either lie in the sun at water's edge on the wide public beach, or find some shade to take a nap on our own private beach. This feature is also unique to Casa Ilusion.
Maid Service is included (no Sunday maid service). Chef, Masseuse, yoga instruction, etc., are available upon request.
The Main house (3,400 sq. ft.) has three bedrooms with three King beds and full baths; a separate Casita (600 sq.ft.) has a King bed and full bath. There is also a single bed in the Casita.

Surfing in Sayulita and it's surrounding areas is the main attraction. Casa Ilusion is located just steps from the left break right in Sayulita. It also has it's own private beach. In addition to the world renowned golf courses by Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman that are just a 20 minute drive away.
we had 4 couples staying here (executive retreat for my company). we were planning on only staying 4 days and transfer to the Four Seasons at Punta Mita. After the first day we canceled the Punta Mita stay and paid the cancelation fee. The house is unique in that it has 4 king size beds. It's the best property IN Sayulita. It's on the north side so quiet... AND RIGHT NEXT TO WEAR THEY RELEASE THE BABY TURTLES... which is beautiful. It's only a short walk away from downtown, although we rented 2 carts and cruised everywhere. the beach out back is EXCELLENT! the pool is perfect. the yard is great for throwing a football. the maid is wonderful and makes the best guac I've ever had every morning. Carlos the local manager is absolutely off the charts... we were trying to get to Hidden Beach last second, he hooked us up. he was an excellent surf coach as well... almost all of us got up on the first try. but mostly he was just an awesome local ally. he knows EVERYONE and got us the best deals on everything (many we had already checked prices on). I loved that it was gated (automatic gate) to keep privacy. AC all worked excellent. And lastly the owner is fantastic to work with. The best thing about Sayulita is that it still has the old Mexico charm and price tag. The food is excellent but not expensive at all. We go to Cabo, Cancun and Punta Mita all the time... Sayulita is about 1/3 the cost for everything.
The grounds are beautiful and so is the house, no question, but the manager and owner are unprofessional and downright rude. None of the things they describe as state of the art worked. The "high speed wifi that extends to the beach" didn't work except for only one evening during our five night stay, the TV never worked at all! Which was a major inconvenience considering we have small children and needed downtime during the stay. Management was unresponsive and the owner made excuses, saying it was due to the rainy season and that's why we paid "low season" rates. Ha! When we complained about the issues, we were sent aggressive emails from both owner and manager. One terrible night during a storm, the living room and dining room was flooded and had an inch of water, our 6-year-old slipped and fell on his tailbone. We had a few electrical sparks from an outlet and a lamp, needless to say we we were concerned about our safety in the house. I guess a safety hazard is also what we get when paying the "low season" rate. This was all on top of them getting our dates wrong and then placing the blame on us for their mistake. We understand mistakes, and we understand rain, and would've left a nice review if anyone was helpful or understanding, just an apology for nothing working in the house would've sufficed, instead we were met with finger pointing and condescension. The owner advised us to stay at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita next time, and I think we will, because then it might be an actual vacation instead of a stressful, scary experience that we paid thousands of dollars for!
While there is no arguing the beauty of the property, the subpar management and owners behavior will taint your stay. We were treated poorly. Renter, beware.
I dare anyone to find a better property than this in all of Sayulita. This is our family’s third year in a row staying at this wonderful estate. We always loved the house and the grounds were amazing, but the new remodel is truly a transformation that must be seen to believe. Everything has been updated! The groundskeeper and maid are there everyday meticulously cleaning and care-taking this exotic property. Lori and her staff are so friendly and helpful that my family considers it our home away from home. We will be coming back again very soon.
First of all, just wanted to tell you what a terrific time we had in Salyulita. We have really fallen in love with the town, and Casa Ilusion was a big part of it. Not sure what it looked like before the renovations, but it is spectacular now. My wife is a bit of an interior design snob and she has had nothing but great things to say about all of it. In fact, we are already trying to plan our next stay here.
This is the perfect house for one or two families. Close to the town plaza but far enough away to provide some sense of a private beach. We looked at many other properties while we were there, and we never once wished we hadnt selected Casa Ilusion for our Salyulita vacation.
We WILL be back!
The house and location exceed expectations, even with the beautiful pictures that are provided. The house staff is unobtrusive and extremely helpful. The grounds are large and gorgeous and the house is spotless and very tastefully decorated. It is just the right walking distance from town. The house manager arranged for a private chef to come in for a couple of meals and the food. preparation and service we great. The ability to lounge, eat and hang out outdoors made it tough to leave the place. The household staff (maid and gardener) were unobtrusive, friendly and very helpful. Our kids (6 and 9) loved the place, as they had plenty of room to roam on property and were right on the beach.
Certainly one of the more expensive rental houses in Sayulita, but worth the the money. We would not hesitate to go back and have already recommended it to friends.
Casa Ilusion is located just steps from Excellent Surfing. There are also world renowned golf courses by Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman just a 20 minute drive away.
