Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Completed in 2005, Casa Sofia is a gracious & luxurious two-story, three-bedroom house. When you enter Casa Sofia, you will be struck by the views. The whole house opens onto a huge patio overlooking Sayulita bay. Unique to Casa Sofia are the expansive, Catalan-style vaulted ceilings over the living room, kitchen, and bedroom of the top floor, built by craftsmen brought in from central Mexico.

Casa Sofia’s top floor is comprised of the house’s large, fully-equipped main kitchen, two dining-rooms (one inside and one under a huge palapa on the patio for al fresco dining), a living-room with two couches, a sun patio, and a one bedroom/bathroom suite with a king-sized bed. The two built-in couches in the living room can accommodation two additional guests.

Through two huge French doors, the whole of the top floor opens on to the patio and view of the ocean, which can be seen from all the rooms. Through an internal staircase, you enter Casa Sofia’s lower level, where there are two bedroom/full bathroom suites (each with king-sized beds), a small kitchen/dining area, and a huge covered patio with a couch, chairs, dining table – and views of the ocean. It is virtually a two-bedroom house of it’s own on one floor.

Casa Sofia will allow you to accommodate your large group or family under one roof while providing the maximum in space, privacy, and comfort. Guest of Casa Sofia will have access to our shared pool.

What sets Casa Higuera/Casa Sofia apart are their beachfront location, gorgeous ocean views, and spacious and attractive design. Our highly coveted southside location on Sayulita’s best hill overlooks the bay and is just steps away from both beach and village.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this trip was amazing. The house was gorgeous in a beautiful garden setting. The view....fantastic. Access to town and beach...perfect (if you don’t mind a little exercise). Layout of the house...great for our family of five. Pool...refreshing. Support of the staff....didn’t even notice their presence but always came home to a tidy house. Really, if you’re looking to get away to a Mexican village but want to be comfortable, this is the answer. Have fun!

We loved staying at Casa Sofia.

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. It is super close to the beach and just a short walk to everything else in town. If we decide to come back to Sayulita, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Gorgeous and private tropical getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at Casa Sofia with our 3 children: ages, 20, 18, and 11. What an amazing place!

The villas and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Better than the pictures even. Probably the best part were the 2 patios at our place. We could sit out there all day and night. So relaxing with spectacular views. Walk down the steps to the beach and down the back path to town. No need for a car. The town is charming and every meal we ate was excellent. This would be a great rental for 3 couples as well. Aaron the owner was so nice and helpful, as was his staff. All I can say is, this place is breathtaking! So glad we found it.

Exceptional Place for a Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Sofia for a week away from it all (including our children!). It was such a wonderful place to spend time. The house is well furnished and affords a commanding view of the bay. We spent many an hour lying out in the shade of the veranda on lounge chairs, listening to the surf and reading. It's easy walking distance from downtown, which is chock full of amazing restaurants, and the beach, which has beautiful sand, many lounge chairs and warm water. The pool is beautiful and refreshing as well, halfway down the stairs on the way to the beach. We can't recommend it enough. The owners are easy to talk with and very helpful, as is the staff on property. One surprise was the variety of activities offered in the town. We'll definitely be back!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

From the taxi driver who collected us (as recommended by the owners of Casa Higuera), to the property, the view from our balcony, the pool, how close it was to town and the beach, I can't rate this place highly enough. The elderly or disabled may struggle with steep stairs to the beach or the hill to town - but for most people it won't be a problem at all and having walked around town a lot every day I think it has the best location in Sayulita. The house is gorgeous in terms of decoration, cleanliness and has all the things you need for cooking - although restaurants in Sayulita are so good you will want to eat out! Thanks for our stay.
