Overview

About the property

House, 2 Big Bedrooms, 1 small bedrm + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Guests who stay at Casa de la Vida are guaranteed a Sayulita vacation as unique and memorable as the house itself. You are invited to relax in an unparalleled tranquil environment offering the most breath-taking views of the Sayulita Bay, surrounding mountains and jungle. We are the last house before the jungle, so unlike many areas in town, it is quiet here ( no discos/dogs barking//all nite party animals like in the plaza centro area)....and very private. A pool, air conditioning, extreme privacy, and proximity to the north end beach are just a few of the many assets guests of Casa de la Vida enjoy during a most memorable vacation in paradise.

The house is perfect for those wishing to visit the village of Sayulita, just north of Puerto Vallarta, yet also desire the exclusiveness offered by the town's 'North End' neighborhood. A huge veranda (with a hanging bed) provides great shade during the day. The pool is located just steps from the veranda with comfortable lounge chairs for perfect siestas.

The house also offers beach chairs, an umbrella, outside shower, and a complete kitchen. Azucena, the housekeeper, will have arranged fresh Sayulita flowers upon your arrival and will clean the house every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Azucena can also do personal laundry upon request as well as prepare meals for you at an extra fee. Casa de la Vida has a gas BBQ (Weber) for your use .

Access to the beach is a 2-minute walk down a cobblestone lane and a beautifully landscaped trail. Guests can either walk the road (mostly flat!) or the beach to the village center, located about 15 minutes away by foot. The Sayulita beach in front of the house is perfect for surf casting and guests with an adventurous spirit will be amazed by the trails through the virgin jungle situated just minutes from the house. You can walk through the jungle to the isolated beach that lies between Sayulita and San Pancho.

The terrace is where you will find yourself each day, whether it is coffee, yoga, siestas, dancing, stargazing, reading or visiting. It is outdoor living at its best! Then on the terrace each evening as the sun sets into the ocean you will be drawn to celebrate the end of yet another memorable Sayulita day.

1 king size bed in the south master suite with A/C and private garden bath with Sayulita bay view ( has 4in Novaform Gel foam topper that conforms to your body to create a restful sleep)

1 king and one twin in north master suite with A/C and enormous private garden bath also has the gel foam topper for your best sleep ever!

1 new queen Novafoam bed in small 3rd bedroom (no a/c or bath)

1 3/4 bath off living area

About Anita

Jim's a school teacher who has now retired. I'm a photographer and have my own small business. We have 3 children - 2 grown-up and gone and a 19 year old girl about to go to Uni and leave us empty-nesters!. We have 3 small bichon-crosses and 2 of them have come to Sayulita with us! We love to take long walks on the beach and spend time on our veranda, drinking coffee and taking in the fabulous views. We are both very active and to try to do as much as possible by way of bike riding or walking or the gym. We love kayaking and hiking as well and paddle boarding (quite popular in Sayulita).

Anita purchased this house in 2010

Why Anita chose Nayarit

Sayulita was recommended to us by friends and we found our home after looking all over Mexico. It's a direct flight from Calgary (4.5 hours) and an easy 40 minute drive from the airport. We love the smal town feel with cobblestone streets and every-one recognizes you. The coffee shops, art galleries and stores make for fun strolls through the centre of town. The restaurants offer wonderful food at amazingly low prices. Plenty of fresh seafood and moqitos!!!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! We are at the end of beach road with a spectacular view of the ocean, beach and whole town. The house sits up on a little hill only 2 minutes walking distance from the beach (150 yards). It is so private in our yard you could take a nude dip in the pool. All you hear is the waves and geckos - no dogs or roosters like in many other parts of town! (We found out the hard way!). You can walk to town via the beach and arrive in 12- 15 minutes.

Great location beautiful views and a friendly staff marred by an old house full of bugs

  • 2 of 5

We truly loved Sayulita but the house stay was marred by bugs and bats that impacted our use of the house. We left lights on all night which drew bugs throughout the central area but ensured the bats were not in the living areas at night. One of the bedrooms was infested with ants and/or termites. We didn't have a huge problem the first few nights but the last two had one BR full of crawling and flying bugs. There was a nest like bunching in the ceiling which fell on the bed . Nothing biting but still disgusting to have bugs and wings all over the sheets. The cleaning staff sprayed but the next night the same thing. I even covered the new sheets that had dead bugs from the ceiling with another set of sheets but before we could lay down more had fallen. We sprayed until the Raid can was empty. We slept on the extra smaller bed and in the night could hear something squeaking and crawling in the ceiling rafters. No sleep for two nights. The house staff was friendly and the owner told me she had the staff spray but it was ineffective. I know tropical areas have bugs but one still expects to have a clean sleeping area. The house needs work.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you had this experience. June is the month where occasionally the flying bugs come on mass. It only lasts a few days and it seems you were there then. My staff did take care of the problem in the bedroom and there have been no complaints since!

Beautiful House on Nanzal Hill

  • 4 of 5

Casa de la Vida is a beautiful house with an incredible back yard and view of the bay. The pool was very clean and there were many lounge chairs for hanging out in the evening. The house itself is nice and the two bedrooms are quite roomy. The "third bedroom" cannot really be considered a viable option for an adult. It is really tiny, barely bigger than the twin bed, and the portable A/C unit is so large and loud that it would be difficult to sleep in there. One of the bedrooms has both a king and a full size bed, and the other room has a king bed. All the beds were super comfortable, and the bathrooms were amazingly "landscaped." It is important to note that this house is on a steep hill, and you need a more powerful golf cart to get down it safely. I initially had a smaller gas golf cart, but it could not handle the hill, and I had to return it for a larger electric cart with disc brakes. That was much better but still scary. Some of the furnishings could use some updating, but all in all, it was a very nice place and the view was amazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks! So glad you enjoyed the house. We do try to advise every-one that the third bedroom is very small. Good advice about the golf cart. The hill is about 25 metres long so easily walkable.

great view, great location and great home

  • 5 of 5

A great property with lots of character. The kitchen has everything you'll need and the property is clean and safe. Pool is beautiful and the view is unbeatable. Third bedroom is very small and could use some updating, but a great stay in a fantastic town!

Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

First time to Sayulita. Family of six had an enjoyable time. The pool was very clean and much appreciated after spending the day in town. Azucena prepared a great dinner upon our arrival. Since our Spanish was lacking, we used Google translate to communicate with her. Had planned to use the smaller back bedroom but it does not have A/C and it was too warm in the evenings. The other two bedrooms have A/C which worked well and are large and spacious as well as each individual bathroom. The open air feel and the boulder-sized rock wall showers are unique. It is very quiet on the north end of town and the short walk to the beach is a plus! Would definitely consider staying at Casa de la Vida again.

Owner's Response: Hi! So glad you enjoyed your stay! There is a small portable A/C unit in the back room. I will have my manager check & make sure it is working. Hope to see you again soon! Take care, Anita

Lovely Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa de La Vida. The home was nice and outdoor feel was awesome. The view was beautiful and so glad we had the pool. We loved the beach but it was so nice to have it to cool off after a walk from town in the afternoon. The two main rooms and bathrooms are very nice. The extra back room for our adult son was a little small only a tiny twin bed. House really only comfortably fits two couples. Other beds would be best for kids. Azucena was great and it was definitely worth having her cook some meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Casa de la Vida to others.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Casa de La Vida. Home still in perfect shape. Great views, shade, and cool breeze. Short walk to beach, jungle paths, and town. Located on the quiet north end of Sayulita on a cobble stone street.
