'Cancion Del Mar' or 'Song of the Sea' describes what you hear overlooking the ocean and Sayulita. It is the best of what Sayulita has to offer! The unbelievable vista as you enter the home through antique iron gates will take your breath and your problems away!

The home offers luxury and comfort, as well as color and beauty! Below is a description of the property. For an even more detailed description and more photos, please go our website.

Cancion del Mar:

As you enter the arched entrance, you are met with an expansive view of the ocean thru the Palapa room. You will see the negative edge pool that appears to drop off into the ocean. The pool, while small, is fully circulated and filtered.

The Palapa room is an open room that is the entertaining center of the home. It has a large built in couch which seats 9 to 12 and sleeps 2 if you wish. Dine while watching and hearing the ocean at the round carved wood table which seats 10.

The Palapa has plenty of space to sunbathe, dance, dine, visit, play games, or whatever you desire. The 25 foot Palapa with 5 carved wood ceiling fans lends itself to many moods. Also please note that we now have WiFi for those who wish to connect!

As you enter the master bedroom suite, you will find the built in king sized bed and bedside tables. This room has a ceiling fan, air conditioning, and 16 feet of doors that open to make the room expansive and part of the Palapa. The attached bathroom has handmade Mexican tile and a glass block shower, as well as double sinks with marble countertops, a separate commode room, a walk in closet and a safe for your valuables.

On the other side of the arched entry, a colorful hall leads you to another bright bedroom with a queen size built-in bed and bedside tables. The room is air-conditioned, has a ceiling fan, and features local art and a space to read. The attached vibrant bath has handmade Mexican tile and a glass block shower.

Down the hall, the bright, cheerful kitchen has handmade colorful tile, and a beautiful island counter. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee pot, dishes, and cooking utensils. The kitchen can be opened up to the ocean breezes or closed-off and air conditioned. There is a 1/2 bath next to the kitchen.

One of the other bedrooms has a king size bed and a loft with a double bed. This is the perfect room for a family of four, two couples or all of the kids!

Cancion del Mar sleeps a total of 12 people in beds. Two additional people can sleep on the sofas if desired.

La Casita:

A winding, landscaped staircase leads you downstairs to another property, La Casita. This smaller villa can be rented along with Cancion del Mar or by itself. There is a fabulous patio with an astounding view of the ocean. A great place to sunbathe, take a dip in the private pool and enjoy the sights and sounds. The covered outdoor kitchenette makes life a little easier with a refrigerator, microwave, and sink.

There are two bedrooms in La Casita. The fanciful, colorful bedroom on the right has a built-in king sized bed and bedside tables, as well as a closet with shelves. The room has a 20 foot ceiling and a ceiling fan. It is air-conditioned. It can also be opened-up to the patio.

The other colorful room also has a king sized bed with bedside tables. This room also has 20 foot ceilings, a ceiling fan and air conditioning. It too, can be opened up to the patio. La Casita will sleep 4 people in beds. Two additional people can sleep on the sofas if desired. There is WiFi as well in La Casita.


The Villas have a walkway with lighting and colorful custom locking gates at both the upper access and the lower access. It is probably not suitable for very small children because of the patio elevation, the open balconies and the unfenced pools, therefore we ask that you do not bring children under the age of 5, unless you have made arangements with us prior to your visit. Also, there is no smoking in the villas.

These homes are on a hill, away from the hustle and bustle of the village. We do suggest that you rent a car. It is a 10-15 min walk to town and the beach. Going down is easier, but coming back if you are tired from a day at the beach, you might want to drive back up or take a taxi. Having the option of using a car, especially during summer insures your comfort and enjoyment. If you do not have a rental car, there are other options that we will include in our information document when you rent the property.

We would be very happy to have you stay at our villa(s) and will make every effort to insure your comfort and enjoyment! Cancion del Mar and La Casita are magical places for reflection and enjoyment, as well as activity and outdoor interests!

We offer Transportation Service in a Suburban from Puerto Vallerta Airport Roundtrip (1) Trip. The driver will receive your party at the airport and make a local stop by the supermarket to shop and then drive you to our Villa. The Transportation is included in our rates if you rent Cancion del Mar or Cancion del Mar & La Casita for at minimum of a 7 day Stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Probably the best view in Sayulita and the best sunsets! The house is well equipped and comfortable. Everyone in our family had their own bedroom which allowed for some privacy. Daily housekeeping by Palo was really nice, and we also hired her & her assistant to cook us an authentic Mexican meal. It was absolutely delicious! All questions pre rental were answered promptly by the owner, Helen. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again. ”

Craig’s review is now posted on your listing page.

Craig’s private feedback for you:

“Hi Helen, House was great but a couple items would make it even better. Beach towels and some beach chairs would be nice. Also the kitchen ....we love to cook but found the knives to be extremely dull. New frying pans would be nice. And a vegetable peeler! Just FYI!! ”

Location feedback:

““End house on a VERY steep hill. Not an enjoyable walk, best to rent a golf cart or cab it.””

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, we enjoyed ourselves very much. I would recommend absolutely renting a vehicle to get up and down the hill as it is quite a steep trek. We had Pola cook us two meals which were excellent and fun.Our rooms and the house were cleaned every day, everything was wonderful I would return, as a matter of fact I wish I was still there. Sayulita is a fun town

We just returned from our trip to Sayulita and had a wonderful time. We rented Cancion del Mar as well as La Casita. My entire family went, which was a group of 17, and we were all very comfortable in the 2 houses. The adults had their own bedrooms and the teenagers enjoyed sleeping together under the palapa. The view of the ocean was amazing, as were the sunsets. We rented golf carts which made it easier to get around town, and the teenagers had fun driving them. Pola cooked for us one night and it was hands down best meal we had while we were there. The houses were very clean and Pola & Augustin made sure they stayed that way, cleaning and making the beds every morning. Being with family, sitting in the pool, drinking a margarita, looking at the beautiful view and listening to the ocean. Life doesn't get much better than that. This is a place we would truly love to return to.
