Spectacular - Even better than advertised!
Unbelievable setting - the perfect location. LOVED enjoying the bustle of the plaza and town beaches, then picking up (incredibly cheap) fresh produce, fish and other groceries at the local vendors and escaping up Nanzal hill to make yummy dinners and watch the most spectacular sunsets. The layout of the casa was perfect for our party of 2 couples as the bedrooms are located on either side of the living/kitchen space, providing for wonderful privacy. Gorgeous panoramic view from every room.
Though we had a rental car and drove ourselves from PVR, we didn't end up using the car while in town as finding parking is nearly impossible. We did drive up to explore some other towns and points North, but we recommend renting a golf cart for your stay as the casa is on an EXTREMELY steep hill (we are all in good physical condition and walking down into town or the beach is not a problem, but walking up is another matter...especially if you have been shopping and are restocking the bar :-). We loved Sayulita Golf Carts SGC, ask for Gaston. He has electric carts with fat tires and engines strong enough to tackle that hill (not all the cart rental companies have vehicles that can), and they let you park your cart at their shop right off the plaza and plug in to charge while you spend your day in town.
Best feature of all is the wonderful property management staff led by the charming René. He managed to get a team out on a Sunday to replace the modem when the Wi-Fi was knocked out by a surprise rainstorm, and was available at all times to answer questions via WhatsApp. Took advantage of all his recommendations and were not disappointed.
Muchas Gracias Rebecca and Tom for an unforgettable vacation; and thanks for the recommendation for Salsa Night at Don Pedros...it turned out the night we went was a band playing Cuban music, our favorite! The friends we brought with us that we travel with frequently agreed Casa Gardenia is one of the most beautiful accommodations we have every enjoyed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
All the terrific reviews and lovely photos are accurate. You won't be disappointed. The drive up the hill is steep and winding but don't be intimidated. We got the hang of it on our third run.
Beautiful Hilltop Getaway
From the moment you walk in, the view and ambiance of the casa takes your breath away. It is close enough to town that a short drive puts you right in the thick of it, but far enough away that you don't feel like all the hub-bub is right outside your door. The house is tastefully furnished with an eye for functionality, simplicity and letting the unique setting and beautiful views take center stage.
We stayed there with two couples and the split between the bedrooms was far enough that it still felt like there was some privacy. We did get one day of torrential downpours, which is the only reason I gave the location a 4 instead of a 5 as getting a small rental car up that steep hill during a washout was a little touch and go. But if what you want is breathtaking views, a little privacy near a bustling little downtown and a guaranteed memorable experience, this is the place for you!
Beautiful Casa in Mexico
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home overlooking Sayulita. We wanted privacy and a beautiful place to relax and rejuvenate on our honeymoon and Casa Gardenia was exactly what we wanted. We recommend renting the Jeep to drive up the steep hill and paying for the airport transfer that they provide. We’ve rented our own car before but the transfer service was much more convenient and no difference in cost overall. Took some time to get the TV sound to work properly and could use some upgrades for kitchen equipment - we cook a lot.
The house was absolutely amazing. The view is absolutely stunning. We stayed there for 4 nights and 5 days. We decided to rent a golf car due to the steep hills, but it was totally worth it. My only complaint would be that we had a power outage twice during our short stay, although the issue was addressed ASAP, our food did spoil. Also, WiFi was sketchy as would be expected being that far up on a hill. Other then that everything else was wonderful.
Daisy, thank you for your review, and we are so happy to hear that you loved the casa and the views. As can be expected during low season, the storms will occasionally interrupt electrical service or affect internet service in Sayulita. Unfortunately, the electrical grid in a small Mexican pueblo is not what we have come to expect in the US. I am happy to hear that the issues were addressed quickly, which is what we would expect from Rene. He is wonderful!

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.
