Property description

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When you walk through the main entrance of Villa Yerbabuena you immediately will be drawn towards the breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean and Sayulita Bay in front of you. The world seems to lie at your feet while you take it all in from the top floor patio; the views, the ocean breeze, the sounds of nature, and the bliss of knowing that your vacation has only just begun.

BIENVENIDOS a Villa Yerbabuena, your luxury villa in the exclusive Pedregroso neighborhood on the quiet north side of Sayulita. Completed in the summer of 2012 it was designed for families or a group of friends who are looking for a private vacation retreat to relax, re-unite, celebrate, or all of the above in an environment with sweeping ocean views, all the modern-day comforts, and where easy-going goes hand in hand with style. Unwind and play at Villa Yerbabuena, a striking Spanish colonial style home, only steps away from the most private and pristine part of Sayulita’s beautiful beach.

The villa is located in an area of private homes across the street from the ocean and within walking distance to the lively center of town. After a 10-minute walk along the palm-lined beach or newly paved road you will find the first restaurants, shops, and surf break. Villa Yerbabuena’s proximity to the center of town is one of its attractions. It is close enough to walk to everything that Sayulita has to offer yet far enough to escape the hustle and bustle and find peace, quiet, and the sound of waves in the background.

Villa Yerbabuena accommodates 9 people. If there are babies or small children in your group we may be able to accommodate more. We have portable Pack N Plays. Please feel free to ask.
The property can also be rented together with adjacent Casa Escondida. Please check vrbo 150901 for information and availability.

Car: Not Necessary

The town of Sayulita is a charming fishing village, about a 35-minute drive on Highway 200 through a lush mountain rain forest north from Puerto Vallarta. Low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand in this picturesque village. On the palm-tree lined beach you find lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for rent, beach cafés and restaurants, surf schools, and local fisherman who will take you fishing or bring you to pristine snorkeling areas. The ocean is great for splashing, swimming, and offers first-class surfing. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine such as Italian, French, Japanese, and Argentinean. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, mountain biking, kayaking, zip line adventures, horseback riding, visits to neighboring colonial towns and ancient pre-Columbian petroglyphs. In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening. Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a small family of three; Iris, Thom and son Max. Thom is from Cupertino, CA, a general contractor and founder of Hammerhouse Construction, Inc. Iris is from The Netherlands and has a background in finance. We love designing and building and are currently remodeling our 100+ year old fixer-upper in San Francisco, CA.

Why the Owner Chose North End (Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico):
When our son Max was only 3 months old we traveled to Sayulita for our first family vacation. At the very end of Calle Loma Linda we rented a vacation home with beautiful views of the ocean and an empty lot below ... It was 2002. We were in the midst of the financial crisis and there was no way then that we could afford to buy a home in San Francisco ~ but maybe an empty lot in Mexico? We fell in love with Sayulita and kept wondering about that lot. We were in Sayulita for a week or so but before we left we were the proud owners of an empty L-shaped lot. Now the dreaming could start! In 2007 we built Casa Escondida on the top part of the L-shaped lot. A one-bedroom casita ideal for the three of us to stay and share on vrbo.com/150901 with couples and other small families. The dreaming continued and in 2012 we built Villa Yerbabuena on the lower part of the lot. When we designed and built our homes we always had the privacy, comfort and needs of our family and friends in mind; Villa Yerbabuena is a traditional Spanish colonial style home with all the modern day comforts, a pool where you can swim actual laps, a dipping pool on the top floor from where you can watch the sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine or cold beer, a beautiful tropical garden, breathtaking views from every floor, large bedrooms with bathrooms, space to play, space to come together, and space to retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We built our home to meet our own high expectations and wishes and we believe Villa Yerbabuena is unique in many ways; The house is built on a slope which allows for incredible ocean views from every floor and an ocean breeze. The spacious top floor with kitchen, dining room, living room, and tv-room can be transferred into a huge open-air living space in combination with the exterior patio and dipping pool. The floor to ceiling sliding doors are easily moved aside and sliding screens keep any insects out. Villa Yerbabuena is within walking distance from the center of town but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle, late night music, and early-morning crowing of roosters. From the property you hear the soft sound of the waves. It is located steps away from the most pristine part of Sayulita's beach and enjoys privacy and security from the publicly accessible beach. At Villa Yerbabuena you and your family or group of friends are accommodated in one home, under one big roof, and not scattered over the property in separate casitas and lastly, at Villa Yerbabuena you will be our ONLY guests. Nuestra casa es su casa!
