Casitas Del Mar (formerly Casa Tortuga) is a beautifully new building in Sayulita.
Ideal Location; Casitas del Mar is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the village center where the popular restaurants wait for you.
Sayulita topography is hilly. It descends down into the village and beach which is flat. To get a great view of the ocean or jungle you either have to climb a hill, or be on the ocean front which is much more expensive. My casas are up a short (50 meter) but steep driveway. If you have disabilities that make walking difficult this is probably not the right place for you. They overlook the village below and the ocean beyond. We are right in the village but above it. You can walk to the village or beach in 5 minutes. Because of the height, you have a sweeping view of the ocean and always a fresh breeze coming off the ocean. That is what makes it worth the walk up the hill. Sayulita is a festive and noisy village. There are always fiestas, music, parades. I live in a mixed neighborhood of American and Mexican nationals. Our Mexican neighbors have chickens and roosters. If you are a light sleeper I suggest bringing ear plugs. The great majority of guests are not bothered by the sounds of Sayulita. My casas are constructed with organic and traditional Mexican architecture in mind. From marble and vintage tile, or clay tile floors to palapa roofs (depending which casa).
Interaction with guests
When I am here you may always text me or stop in to ask questions or seek help. When I am out of town my property manager, Jose is here to help. Please let us know when you need more purified water, toilet paper, soap, or garbage bags.
Casitas Del Mar is located in the central part of Sayulita, up on a hill over looking the village and ocean. My neighborhood is a mix of American and Mexican Nationals. The flavor of Mexico is all around us.
You can get around Sayulita by foot. No need to rent a car unless you want to go out of the area. We are 15 minute walk to the bus that takes you to the airport and Puerto Vallarta.
Plenty of taxis available in the center of the village.
Other things to note
I have 5 African dry land tortoises that live outside. They roam about in their space most of the day sunning and looking for something to eat. Please don't feed them except Nopales cactus which I grow. They will eat out of your hand. They are the only breed of this type in Sayulita
