Gorgeous Beachfront 3BR Home - Steps to Beach & Village

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


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.

Casa Sofia Perfecto

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sofia and the other casitas on the property are terrific. The location is absolutely perfect for access to both the beaches and the town. If your considering a trip to Sayulita I would highly recommend. Great for families, couples and groups. The pictures are accurate - the place is awesome.

This property was definitely one of the prettiest places in Sayulita!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here at Casa Sofia was wonderful! The unit we were in was huge, light and bright, and had everything we needed including amazing views! The open-air structure provided a week full of comfort, nature and breath-taking sun rises and sunsets.

We very much enjoyed the easy access to both the beach and town. Everything is super close....including the perfect little pool on the property to cool off. We used the kitchen for breakfast and snacks, then ventured into town for lunch and dinner.

This property is very conducive to meeting other families to enjoy the week with, if that is enticing to you. I cannot say enough about Casa Sofia......we will definitely be back!

Gorgeous property & amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Sofia in Sayulita and we can not say enough amazing things about this property! The layout was perfect for our group (me & my fiance, his 18 yr old daughter & my parents). Everyone had their own private space to enjoy when they wanted, but the main floor and the large upper level patio were perfect for us all to spend time together eating breakfast & watching the whales playing in the ocean!

The house is beautifully decorated and fully stocked - we had everything we needed to feel comfortable for the week. And beyond the Casa itself the grounds are amazing! The pool was delightful and perfect for cooling off from the humidity. It was also a great gathering place for the guests staying in the other Casa/Casitas and we met some amazing people while hanging out at the pool that we ended up spending several more days with throughout the week!

The property is perfectly located for ease of getting to the town square or to the main beach (right out the front of the villa) or to Playa Los Muertos beach (our personal fave). The only "caution" is that there are many stairs to get to the Casa (hence the amazing views!) and if anyone has mobility issues you definitely should invest in renting a golf cart during your stay. With that being said, if you are comfortable with climbing stairs, the trip down to town and back up is quick and easy. I had to run to a store on the square at one point and was down & back up to the Casa in 10 minutes.

Overall we loved our stay at Casa Sofia & our first trip to Sayulita. We will most definitely be back and we can't imagine staying anywhere but at Casa Sofia or the other Casa/Casitas! Thanks for the amazing week Aaron!

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.

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.
