Breathtakingly beautiful - that is Casa Kestos.
Every morning I awoke to the sound of the surf crashing against the shore and when I took my tea on the patio I simply could not believe we were fortunate enough to be staying in a place of such beauty.
We were a group of 8 adults, we stayed for a glorious 2 weeks.
We walked into town, some or all of us, daily. We walked the beach in front of us which leads to the village of Sayulita where we surfed, shopped and dined. We also walked the numerous paths behind the villa and went to even quieter beaches and indeed walked all the way to San Pancho through the jungle - take water with you. Not a hike for the faint of heart. The walk into town is faster if you take the short path that leads to the road- Palmar , but the beach walk is lovely.
Venezia Pizza is always a hit, and we added Calypso in the square to our list of favourite restaurants.
This was our second visit to Sayulita and we explored more streets and shops this time. We kept the donut sellers busy and the churro man as well as other street vendors. All cheap and delicious. We also discovered the beer wholesaler who delivers, just up the street from the book store/library. The local market on Friday was full of fresh foods and crafts and the La Cruz market on the pier on Sunday morning is a must.
The casa , bungalow and casita were all lovely. The staff were friendly and the manager was very helpful. The internet was quite reliable for the most part.
We did make use of a taxi a few times, especially when we had groceries.
Some of us took the local bus in to Bucerias to go to the market and the Mega grocery store. It is cheap and reliable. The bus stop was about a half hour walk from the casa for us- not hustling along!
I would return to Casa Kestos in a heartbeat and recommend it heartily.
