About the property

Bird watchers delight in this unique and tasteful homes. We are located 1.2 miles south of town center with a semiprivate beach 2 blocks away. Fully furnished and well appointed, our home offers a chance to experience the best of Sayulita. Close enough to enjoy the town, yet far enough away to avoid the noise. All of the homes in Villa Bali, were imported from Indonesia, and then painstakingly rebuilt in Sayulita. These antique (100+ year old) homes were modernized and then combined with other architectural items from around the world. Villa Bali #5 is the private home of the importers, designers and developers of the Villa Bali project, T.R. Lawrence and Linda O'Leary, who are also the owners of Nomads of Santa Fe. The Villa Bali project has a total of 6 homes in a small community on a private road. Safe, secure and serene. The 1 bedroom guest house has one queen bed, with one twin that substitutes as a couch, one bathroom, small kitchen, living and dining area. We have a property manager available to help you - we supply all linens, including beach towels and beach umbrellas, also have an outdoor BBQ. for grilling some big shrimp! This unique and tasteful home give you the chance to relax - wake up to the sounds of the jungle birds, enjoy the semi private beach with a good book and binoculars to see the whales jumping, and yet we have free internet to keep you connected to your other world.

Tranquility and Beauty

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is a quirky jungle home, an (imported) Indonesian antique cabin with lots of carved wood and charm. The balcony overlooks deep tangled trees and vines full of birds and other creatures you hear stirring the night. We found the hike to the beach easy but the return a bit much with the steep hills on the property but we are seniors and are bound to feel it. Beach itself is fabulous. Owners are friendly and helpful. Best if you have a car rented or ask how to get reliable taxi service. We did a bit of both. Great spot.

Beautiful and romantic jungle villa by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Bali was perfect from beginning to end. The house we stayed in was charismatic and quaint, the woodwork and jungle setting made us fall in love with it immediately. Villa Bali was quite and just the right distance from town to give us the seclusion we needed and was still convienent to access all the restaurants and shops in town. The owners took great care of us and we can't wait to return.

amazing stay in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

I really loved our time here. The house was as beautiful as it looks and the view of the jungle was perfect. We woke up to multiple birds singing every morning and had tea on the awesome deck before our day started. I highly recommend the beach down the road for hanging out on. We spent many hours here enjoying the privacy ( we were the only ones on the beach except for a couple of dog walkers) The water was a bit too rough for proper swimming but TR and Linda lent us their boogie boards and we had hours of fun with the best boogie boarding ever. The also lent us their bikes so we could ride into town which was also great. Warning however it is a challenging ride in and out you need to be used to riding hills to make it. TR and LInda were very kind and helpful. We loved the walk into town and did it every night to and from with no issues. The last bit up to the house on the cobblestone hill can be challenging if you are not fit or have mobility issues. I can't wait to come back next year.

Lovely mexican getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had an enjoyable 2 weeks at Villa Bali--it's a beautiful little house, in a wooded, hilly area. He is an avid birder and was happy to find many species, many which he could see right from the porch. The owners were in residence the whole time we were there, and answered questions and provided any info we needed. The beautiful semi-private beach about a 15 minute walk from the house, with umbrella and lawn chairs provided at Villa Bali, is a treasure. The only drawback about the place is its distance from town--the mile and a half to and from Sayulita has quite a bit of elevation, and took 45 - 55 minutes each way; we're very active 65- and 70-year-olds and definitely felt the work-out! Several times we took at taxi home, for about $8US.
