Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom On A Small Hill With Warm Breezes Surrounded By Gardens

Our casa is located on a hill on the South side of Sayulita, only a short 8-minute walk from the village plaza along a dirt road brimming with character. The house exudes a simple, European elegance with high ceilings, tasteful decor and 4 sets of French doors opening up to the courtyard patio, veranda and the palm trees and cactus in the garden. The fully-equipped kitchen includes such extras as blender, toaster, citrus juicer and coffee maker, and opens onto the large outdoor veranda where dinner can be served al fresca with views of Sayulita's hills and valleys. A barbeque is also provided so you can grill up some camarones (shrimp) or fresh fish caught by the local fisherman.

A comfortable king-size bed occupies the 1 bedroom, and a second double bed is set up in the spacious living room for daytime lounging or as a second bed if you need it.

Our Casa is ideally located both close to town and the main beach and close to the less populated beaches: Los Muertos (great, swimming beach) and Carricitos (amazing paradise!) -- a 10-minute and 20-minute walk respectively, through the jungle on small dirt roads.

If you want to rent the house Golf Cart it is available for US$50/day or 7 days for US$280. A fully refundable PayPal damage deposit of US$400 is required if you want to rent the golf cart.

The caretaker of the Casa lives in the second floor roof-top suite with her two cats (that may visit you :) -- should you have any questions.

Our property also houses the owners Casita - a completely separate building from this Casa.

Sheets are changed and maid service is provided once a week if you stay for 2 weeks or more.

Our whole house now has a purified water coming out of all the taps! We have installed a brand new system of UV and carbon filters so that you can now wash all your vegetables and fruits quickly and easily, drink the water straight out of the taps and brush your teeth with the tap water :)

No smoking inside the house, please, only outside on the porch. And no dogs, sorry, because the caretaker has kitty cats. Gracias!

What makes this house unique

When you're at home you feel far away from the hub-bub of the center of town. The surrounding trees and greenery make it an oasis of calm. Yet, it is only a 7 minute walk to the plaza and main beach! Best of both worlds :)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa Solana is paradise, pure and simple. I’ve never stayed in a more enchanting environment and had such a complete rest and opportunity to relax in the warm and simple environment. The house is charming, the locals friendly and very kind about my small amount of Spanish. I loved every minute of it, especially our charming hostess, Tracey, as consultant and companion. Highly recommended!!!

Perfect blend of convenience, value and quality!

  • 5 of 5

So, it starts with Tracey. Tracey is the resident manager and she is awesome. Kind, sincere, and very available to address questions and recommend "best places for ___." The place itself: charming, super clean and well-presented, comfortable (great beds, much better than others in MX I have had to deal with), no issues with the tap water (go ahead, drink from the tap - yeeeeahh! we did, no problem!), and ceiling fans, lots of windows and the nice breeze keep it comfy. Water pressure fine, shower is good (no reason to over-shower if you go to the beach and swim in the ocean!). Did I mention that this casa is clean?? And plenty of room for a family of 3 or 4. Wifi? Fast and reliable! And in terms of noise, really it's very quiet compared to the places right in town. You do faintly hear the live music from the Plaza bars, but it wasn't anything that kept me awake. If I were trying to sleep at 1am right in town, yeah, totally another story. Whew. Yes, there's the occasional barking dog(s), and plenty roosters yelling at each other and making sure YOU know it's 6 (or 5) am, but hey, it's Mexico. Get over it. One especially awesome thing: location is within around 10 minutes walking distance of the Los Muertos beach. Love that beach! Way better than the main Sayulita beach. This beach is much more scenic, sincere and welcoming. And just the walk to/from is awesome. I am having serious withdrawals. What else - oh, the food in Sayulita, I thought I ate a lot, but I actually LOST weight! Must eat at: Mary's (get the fish bowl, huge & healthy! And their fish tacos are bomb!). Great burgers and bulldogs (cervezaritas) and margaritas at Monchi's. Also the combo platter at Carmelita's, and yes, do have breakfast at Choco Banana, But if you want to make your own breakfast at home, no problem, such as scrambled eggs and chorizo, buy it from the town carniceria (their chorizo is terrific, tons of flavor, not greasy, and not TOO spicy!). Then head right to the beach! Alas Blanca is the local mini-super of choice - great selection of everything, and affordable, and friendly folks!

If you carry-on your vacation stuffs, it's easy to take the local bus here from PVR, just 35 pesos/pax (as of now), 'bout an hour & 10 minutes bus ride, then walk to Casa Solana from the bus stop (around 15 mins walk).

I would stay at this place during the high season again ANYTIME! Great value. This rental is a no-brainer. I'll be back.

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I had such a lovely surprise when I arrived at Casa Solana in Sayulita. Two terases with open wide opening doors that make you fieel as if you were outside. The main terrase is such a lovely place to relax and enjoy drinks or meals, alone or with a group of friends. I used to do jogging almost everyday, as the house is only a few minutes of isolared jungle paths where you can feel as close to nature as possible. The beaches Playa de los muertos, Patzcuarito and Carricitos are only a few minutes away. I used to spend every evenig at these isolated beaches as the main beach was kind of crowded for me The best sunsets are at Playa Carricitos and if you want to roll on a black beach sand, Playa Pascuaritos is the place to go...Tracey is such a lovely person and she made us feel as if we were at home...I would highly recommend this place. Hope to come back to Sayulita and stay at Casa Solana again..

Great house.

  • 5 of 5

Really loved this rental. Big open kitchen/living/dining area. Lots of double doors opening onto patios. Walking distance from town and ocean, but not so close you feel too crowded.

Never want to stay anywhere else in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

Absolute love. My boyfriend and I stayed here for two beautiful weeks in March and can't wait to make plans for next year. The kitchen is well stocked, the house and patio are perfectly cool and breezy in the hottest parts of the day, and for us the location was ideal - far enough from town to be peaceful, close enough to be convenient (and close to our favourite beach). Well managed, by the lovely and friendly Tracey. Add the cats and the whole package is a gem.

Magical holiday

  • 5 of 5

Loved it from the moment I arrived. Came with my kids and we were able to relax, fix meals in the kitchen, and enjoy the ample space for reading, games, and siestas. The casa is conveniently located so it's a short walk to the plaza, restaurants, market, and the beach as well as the other beach, beautiful Playa Los Muertes. Tracey is a wonderful person and very helpful in getting us acquainted with our new surroundings, recommending restaurants and activities, etc.. Can't wait to go back.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Solana for our first-ever trip to Sayulita and it went far beyond our expectations. The location was perfect--a short walk to town and popular Sayulita Beach, but also very close proximity to the quieter Playa de los Muertos, while still feeling private and secluded. Thanks to the provided BBQ, we also enjoyed many homemade meals on the patio each evening. The kitties were good company too :) A home away from home for sure, with simple yet perfect amenities. Highly recommended. We will be back!
