About Tom and Rebecca Smolik
We are both commercial real estate professionals who live in Dallas, Texas and have fallen in love with the charm, weather, culture and views that Sayulita has to offer. Someday we hope to retire and spend many months at Casa Gardenia, but until then, we want to share our dream home with others who love the quaint Mexican Village of Sayulita!
Tom and Rebecca Smolik purchased this House in 2012
Why Tom and Rebecca Smolik chose Sayulita
After owning a condo in Puerto Vallarta, we discovered the authentic charm of Sayulita. We decided we had to become 'locals', so we purchased a piece of land with a stunning view and spent three years building our dream home.
What makes this House unique
Our casa offers a spacious, open floor plan on one level without having to maneuver up and down countless stairs. Each room in the casa provides a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. During the warmer months, you remain very comfortable in our entirely A/C casa. Enjoy unique stairwell access to the beach, located right next to Casa Gardenia. We have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X (standard transmission) available to our guests for $35/USD per day, under a separate rental agreement.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Fabulous views from every room! Paradise!
We loved our stay at Casa Gardenia so much! The hosts are amazing. We had perfect and prompt communication. Easily arranged driver to the house, Rene to meet us and give us the keys, etc. Really, the perfect host experience. The house was the perfect size for two couples too. What really takes the cake is the view! You walk around feeling like you're in paradise the entire time! 180 degree views of the ocean from every room! The pictures don't do it justice. The terrace has everything you need to enjoy your time. The kitchen is well-equipt too. You really can't go wrong with this rental. The walk down to town is steep but not hard (15 minutes), challenging to get back up, but a cab will bring you up for $3.50. We ventured to lovely Sayulita most days. We felt very safe and tucked away at Casa Gardenia. Even though there are a few houses near by, we never really saw anyone and felt very private the whole time. Great house. Great vacation. I highly recommend this rental!!
We absolutely love this home. Mornings with our coffee on the deck looking out over the ocean along with the evening sunsets made the views super spectacular. We were visited one morning with many different kinds of birds in the trees, including parrots, and were able to watch the bats in the trees at night. Sayulita is a very colorful town and we will be back. Thank you again.
Heaven for a Week
What an amazing week we had! The house was incredible, and Rebecca was fantastic to work with. She arranged through her caretaker Rene to have us picked up at the airport, and taken grocery shopping for the week on our way to the house. One less thing to think about and greatly appreciated. We were met at the house by Rene and he showed us around, answered questions about the town and gave us his contact info in case of any problems but we had none. The house is situated high above the town on Nanzal hill, and I highly recommend renting a golf cart or renting the Jeep from Rebecca. We had 3 of the golf cart companies in town not willing to rent to us because of the location of the house however Riviera golf carts said no problem and had the cart at the house when we arrived. It was priceless, and shot up and down the hill effortlessly. The TV in the master was out so we were forced to listen to the waves crashing on the beach below us. Didn't miss it a bit. The house itself has everything you could possibly need. Clean, spacious, comfortable, and sunsets that can't be matched. We've stayed in many VRBO properties, and this is as good as it gets. Love the town, love the house and we'll be back next year. Many Thanks
We were honestly speechless, the views took our breath away! By far, the best choice of any place!
Casa Gardenia over exceeded our expectations, the best panoramic views we’ve ever experienced! We were greeted with flowers and heart shaped petals in our room for our honeymoon❣️ Rene, property manager, couldn’t have been more helpful and Sayulita restaurant recommendations were perfect. We can’t wait to book another stay, or two next year and the next....
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Spectacular, Amazing, Unforgettable
If I could give Casa Gardenia 1 Million stars I would. From beginning to end, Lets start with the HomeAway site and the lovely owners Rebecca & Tom. The process was smooth, a great experience especially. This property is undoubtedly the best in Sayulita for many reasons but let me just say Location, Location, Location. The entire house is one you only see in movies and you wonder if anything like that even exists. well, it does and it's in Sayulita. I booked our stay for my wife and another couple. I already knew it was a rainy month (august) but I've been to Mexico before and It's actually a treat to see a storm of that caliber right in front of your eyes. But overall every day was sunny and warm, perfect for a tan. Private Beach access was awesome, a short walk let alone the coolest thing is walking thru the jungle and seeing other mansions. I opted for the suburban service pick up/drop off which was extraordinary. You get to make a stop at the Mega store to buy groceries, what an awesome service. That by far is very classy on the part of the owners to do that. I highly recommend the suburban service especially when you're trying to find the house in the private villas atop the mountain. Let me move on to the property manager "Rene" he's just the best there is. explains everything so simple. GREAT great guy! he met us at the house to welcome us. During our stay we witnessed the best lightning storm of my life and yes of course power did go out. It's common as in any 1st world country too, that the power grid and transformers might flicker but ....Rest assured, Rene was quick to assist us and all was great again. The owners are very lucky to have a guy like Rene managing this place. It's so clean, well kept and if my review doesn't convince you to pick this place as your future vacation stay in Sayulita, I don't know what will. There are hundreds of people who already saw my social media posts and are seeking to book this place within the next year so I hope you click reserve soon before my friends beat you to it. One observation I can add is that the photos on this website are incredible but yet they still don't do it justice. This is a magical place and even MORE, I mean MOREEEE spectaclar in person. I'm so GLAD I chose this place. I will definitely return on a future stay.
Amazing home in Sayulita!
We had a fantastic time on our recent trip to Sayulita. One of the highlights was definitely staying in this gorgeous home - the view is simply breathtaking! It was beautifully decorated, very clean, and had everything we needed. Rebecca was wonderful to work with and very responsive. Rene, the property manager, was also wonderful and helped us with suggestions for snorkeling. We would definitely love to come back to Saylita and would stay in this wonderful home again. Thank you!
