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.

My high expectations were exceeded

  • 5 of 5

Casa Higuera proved to exceed my high expectations, which were based on consistently positive traveller reviews. The location is well appointed both in proximity to the beach (91 steps from Casita 3) and town (2 minutes). The sound of crashing waves kept us sleeping all eve and calm in our spirit for the two week stay. We went with our 9 year-old as a first trip to Mexico and Casa Higuera facilitated a safe, luxury (pool, landscape, cleanliness, view) and environmental (birdsong, geckos, iguana and interesting insect sightings) spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped for meal-making and the filtered water was replenished in a timely manner. In truth, we had a few tears when it was time to go. We would return in a heartbeat.

Fantastic, secluded, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My second visit back to the Casa Higuera/Sofia property and loved it just as much. The first time was spent in the 3 bedroom casa, and this most recent was one of the casitas. The same, sensitive, interesting decor and layout, very comfortable and with beautiful views out past palm trees to the ocean. Very quiet and secluded, even from other guests staying on the property. Aaron & Marya - thank you for having created such a beautiful place to stay when in Sayulita.

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.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Casa Higuera with our two children. The views are incredible and the house is beautifully furnished. The location is amazing too. Direct access on to the beach and one minute into town. No need for a car. The pool is a real bonus too. No need to leave the property some days. It was super clean and the gardens are beautifully maintained too. The staff and owners are great. We can't wait to go back.

Charming place to stay

  • 5 of 5

These villas all have extraordinary views. We were tempted to stay on our balconeys the entire time. The staff did nice job of keeping our place clean and were very accommodating when we lingered.

Sayulita is a delightful village just down from the casitas. Easy to walk into town or on the beach. Nice restaurants and fun night life.

One caution: many in our group came down with turista. We think this was from one of the restaurants, so pick your food choices well. The casitas have bottled water which the staff keeps stocked, so cooking in the casitas is safe.

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!
