Casa Maravilla - loosely translated as 'Wonderful House'. And it is. It's a circular design with surprises at every view. This shady, private is perfect for bird-watching. A perfect location and just a block and a half from the beach and a 10 minute walk to the center of Sayulita.
“Casa Maravilla was a magical gem. Our family came to Sayulita to relax, celebrate, and enjoy family time together, and this home and town did it all for us. We celebrated our daughter’s first birthday here, and our son turned into the number one beach explorer. My wife relaxed and read, while I surfed. Everyone from Marcos to Lupe to Mitch made our trip so enjoyable. Can’t wait to return.”
'We came to Sayulita for a wedding and were the envy of all our friends once they saw our amazing accommodations. This place is wonderful.' Tim – Winnepeg, Canada
'We loved the house and location. Perfect really. Love the curvy design - pleasant breezes in every room. What wonderful architecture. And loved the mornings on the roof deck watching all the birds. Such a special home.” Ginny - San Mateo, CA
The lowest level is entered separately from the rest of the house and has an air conditioned bedroom (a king bed that may be converted for use as two twins), with a half bath in the utility area. To enter the main levels of the house, there is a half flight of exterior stairs that leads to the main level entry.
The main level consists of the main house entry hall, two large air-conditioned bedrooms and one bathroom - great shower - no tub. One bedroom has a double bed and the somewhat larger one has a king that can be converted to make two twins. Both bedrooms have generous work spaces for writing your next novel, etc. A portacrib is also provided for a little one. (Our house limit is 6 people + 1 small child.)
Up a flight of stairs is the living/dining/kitchen area. There is dining for 10 at the two tables, a well appointed kitchen, two couches and a nice full bathroom with shower. Also on this level is a terrace with a view of the ocean over the coconut palms. The house design is pretty amazing - it's shady, cool, and breezy - and ceiling fans are everywhere, in addition to the air conditioned bedrooms.
Then on the rooftop floor is a living area with really large banca, additional dining, a water closet in the pool pump room, and a small pool. All of this is covered by a beautiful and dramatic palapa. Night times are especially magical up on the roof. The pool’s about chest high - 10 or so in diameter - and great for relaxing, cooling off in the Summer, and whatever. The views on this level are pretty terrific - jungle, ocean, lovely neighborhood, etc.
'Que Bonita! Our first trip to Sayulita won’t be our last and I know where we’ll be staying from now on – Casa Maravilla has it all: pool, shade, quiet, hidden in the trees, great views and a wonderful rooftop palapa.' Pat, Sarah, and Little Liana. Boise Idaho.
“This house is so comfortable an beautiful. Everyone connected with it has been completely helpful and friendly. Would definitely return – actually – why am I leaving??”
'What a fabulous vacation. Thank you for opening your house to us. We had many wonderful meals in the kitchen, and many lazy afternoons by the pool. It was exciting to watch our little girl learn to swim in the pool…After a night out on the town it was so wonderful to come back to your comfortable home.' Mel, Jair, and Nova - British Columbia, Canada
'Great vacation spot! What a beautiful house! Michael, you have a jewel here! We have seen such a variety of wildlife, and such a tranquil spot with great food. This place definitely rates a return visit. Thanks for a memory.' Pete and Sue – CA
“Casa Maravilla was the perfect place for our first trip to Sayulita. We loved the bird watching from the dining table. Our baby learned many new words and bird calls thank to the abundant wildlife (caw, caw). Exploring Sayulita was so much fun!! Playa de los Muertos was peaceful and relaxing, and the beaches on the North end were simply stunning. Much thanks to Lupe and Mitch for making this a stress-free vacation. We can’t wait to return!”
