About the property

One of Sayulita's most beautiful homes

Corazon de Luz is a uniquely beautiful vacation home. Nestled at the edge of the jungle, and facing out towards the ocean and town, you may find you never want to leave the house. Located on the lush, southern side of Sayulita, we are just a 10-minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) from town, beaches and jungle trails. The grounds are spectacular, overflowing with tropical flowers, lush palms and brilliantly colored birds. Corazon de Luz is perfect for a small group or family, with 4.5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.

This hand-made home was designed and built as a labor of love. The architecture is a contemporary twist on the traditional coastal palapa-style. The space is tranquil, organic and harmonious with nature. Walk through the entrance towards a spectacular ocean view and sparkling blue water of our large infinity pool. The spacious, serene living room, dining area and airy, fully equipped working kitchen are crowned by a three-story palapa. It is the communal space.

The romantically appointed master bedroom is at the top of a sweeping staircase, with it’s own separate wing, sitting area, king-sized bed with luxurious linens and a Zen-like bathroom with an open-air private shower. The other side of the house has another master suite, with it’s own living room, king-sized bed and two decks. Upstairs is a sleeping loft with a full and twin bed, perfect for older children who will feel like they are in a tree house, but safe and sound under a palapa roof.

Crossing the bridge and heading downstairs is the lovely and romantic “jungle room”. The queen size bed faces the jungle and ocean view and has an outdoor seating area and very spacious bathroom and closet. Private, peaceful and quiet.

The fourth bedroom has a queen-sized bed, small couch, with a view of the lower garden courtyard. The separate bathroom has a jungle view, organic and contemporary accents and a palm tree growing through the floor.

The whole house enjoys the benefit of a water purification system. The heated, salt water pool is perfect for swimming laps or simply lounging. Every bedroom has air-conditioning, overhead fans, spacious closets and your own safe.

Our caretakers, Fabiola and Canuto will provide housekeeping six days a week. They live on site in their own casita and are there to provide warmth, security and if you speak a little Spanish, very lively conversation. Our fantastic house managers, Gabbi and Nick will be your liaisons, providing personal service. They will be available to make your trip as comfortable as possible, connecting with you before you arrive. The house has wi-fi, iPod docks and safes in each bedroom, but no television. We prefer to plug into nature, read a book and enjoy the sweetness and charm of our little village.

About Phoebe Sarason

We built this beautiful house after we fell in love with Sayulita during a family vacation. We designed it as space where family and friends could come together to relax, play and enjoy the sweetness of this magical town. We live in California and are both in the arts and design communities. Our family love traveling, surfing, yoga, swimming and nature. We enjoy the warmth of the people and the life-style of this special town. We have made wonderful, creative and life-long friends in Sayulita. Our senses come alive in this special place!

Phoebe Sarason purchased this house in 2005

Why Phoebe Sarason chose Sayulita

Corazon de Luz is considered one of the most beautiful homes in the area. It was designed so that we could share a communal space and then retreat to our own private areas. Much consideration went into the design. Having traveled extensively as a couple and a family, we chose what we loved best about our favorite places. I think once you step foot in Corazon de Luz, you'll see what a special this 'heart of light' is all about!

What makes this house unique

*Tranquil, private, natural

*Very close to town, beach and jungle roads

*Open-air architecture, natural materials, yet very private

*Gorgeous 15 meter, infinity pool, great for lounging or working out

*Stunning ocean and jungle views

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family chose to celebrate Christmas 2013 in Sayulita, our 3rd trip to the area. We always undertake exhaustive research in order to find the right rental. This home surpassed all of the criteria we set when looking for a week of sheer indulgence! The home itself is beautifully appointed with furnishings and art pieces. Local materials have been used to make an impressive dining table, coffee table, etc. Each room has its own unique feel with fresh colors and textiles. All spaces are open and airy, seizing upon the natural beauty of the surrounding jungle yet maintaining privacy. It is true that guests have no reason to leave this place. We were quite happy to sip coffee, read by the pool, wallow in the water while looking with a bird's eye view down on the surfers below . . .all . . .day . . .long. However, one of the biggest draws to Sayulita for our family is the landscape with its mountains, jungle, bird life - the exploring is endless. My parents, 85 a nd 87 years old, along with the rest of the family absolutely loved walking into Sayulita, to Playa Los Muertos and shuffling along the sandy, cobbled streets in that area. The birding is tremendous. We were well cared for by property managers, Gabbi and Nick. They were always available to answer any questions we had about dinner reservations, arranging massages, rentals, taxis, etc. If you travel during a holiday, be sure to make those reservations in advance of your stay. In home massages, golf carts, catered dinners can be difficult to nail down. We were fortunate to sample (actually gorge on) home cooked fare prepared by Alma and Marta - shrimp stuffed chiles rellenos, chicken mole, spinach stuffed pork, among many other offerings. This catered dining experience is a must if you stay at Corazon de Luz. Corazon de Luz is by far, one of the most lovely places we've experienced.

Hillside Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a dreamy week in your beautiful home. It was our first time to Sayulita. We watched many beautiful sunrises. It was a treat to be close enough to stroll into town to explore the sights and sounds and be able to retreat to your hillside oasis at the end of the day. I recommend staying here!

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at Casa Corazon de Luz the week leading up to Easter this year. We had two families of 4, with a total of 4 kids, and the house was perfect for our group in every way. We could not have asked for a better situation! The views and grounds are gorgeous; the pool is totally inviting and a great size; the common areas were comfortable and mostly open air; the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated; the bathrooms were plentiful and spacious; and the staff supporting the house was friendly, hard-working and very helpful. We really enjoyed Fabiola's homemade meals and arranged for her to cook us 4 breakfasts and 3 dinners throughout our week, all of which were fantastic. Her tortillas were to die-for, as were her chile rellenos stuffed with meat and cheese, and her enchiladas with mole. We were tempted to have her cook even more meals for us, but we also had a great time exploring Sayulita's many restaurants, taco shops, beach-front cafes, etc. We could not have had a better time! If we come around Easter week again, however, we will bring our ear plugs and sound machines, because the music pouring out of dance clubs and on the main beach in town wafted straight up the hill and jungle to the house. Obviously this is not Casa Corazon's fault...but things get a little crazy around Easter week and the music literally did not stop all night the entire week. We dealt with it and it didn't stop us from savoring every minute at the house and in Sayulita. Final note - we would HIGHLY recommend renting golf carts as they were invaluable during our stay. While the house is not too far from the heart of town and the beaches, it's up some steep hills on a rugged dirt road. We loved the tucked away location away from it all, but we also got heavy use of the 2 golf carts we rented and used them constantly for our daily trips to town, to several beaches, etc. The management company that supports Corazon de Luz helped arrange our rentals for a better price than all of the golf cart rental companies were quoting. Thanks Phoebe and Fabiola for an unforgettable week - we hope to be back!
