Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful place! From Lizeth, a great cook by the way, and the location, we could not have imagined a better place. We were checking our calendar and booked a return, before we left ! It will feel like returning home, as everyone makes you feel so at ease.



Highly recommend Villa Sonrisa )

My family and I travel all over the world. When our bags are unpacked this is where we choose. Truly an enchanting place. This is the place to be if you are looking for a fantastic place to enjoy Mexico.

Shannon Poulsen purchased this villa in 2002

We chose just North of Sayulita for the Enchanting Location and the wonderful, friendly people, and surfing, surfing surfing! It really does not get any better than this!

Our kids prefer being in Mexico, and the villa over anywhere else.

When you are enjoying a stay in Villa Sonrisa, you will feel completely welcome and right at home. A very private, upscale yet back to nature adventure.

We searched high and low and when we found this place we fell in love!

We surf daily in uncrowded, consitent waves. Our kids love the local school and the food is just too yummy!

Turtle season is enchanting, this place is like living the discovery channel!

SPEECHLESS HOME, AMAZING VIEWS...FANTASTIC FAMILY TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
Speechless! Is the only word that came to my mind to try to explain the experience we had at your stunning house Shannon! It has everything for a perfect vacation. The house is up the hill (of Platanitos Beach) in a very private and luxury gated community, with amazing facilities, heated pool, surrounded by beautiful gardens and the most amazing views to the Pacific Mexican Ocean. Liz was very nice and helpful! No doubt we will come back again since we felt in love of your house and Platanitos beach (perfect for kids).
We had the perfect family trip!

BEST VACATION EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
I believe that this was our 5th trip back to Villa Sonrisa. This is our family's favorite vacation spot. We enjoy playing in the ocean, visiting the turtle santuary, horseback riding, whale watching and also visiting the small towns that are close to Platanitos. Shannon is wonderful to work with. She has been very helpful in answering all of my questions (especially before our first trip). We have also come to love the house manager, Lizeth. Lizeth makes us feel very welcome and she has taught me the secret to making refried beans! I highly recommend Villa Sonrisa.

ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Shannon,

We just want to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your incredible generosity and kindness for sharing your beautiful home in Playa Platanitos. Wow. What an amazing time we had. Your home is incredibly beautiful and the surrounding land is magical. We had a truly wonderful week, and couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Lizbeth was wonderful, as was everyone we met down there. We surfed and swam, boogie boarded, paddle boarded, spent lots of time playing on the beach, read and relaxed, ate tons of coconuts, and just truly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for making this happen, we are so grateful.

We hope you and the family are well, and hope to see you guys in Chile sometime!

PARADISE PLUS!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us Shannon - it was truly the most relaxing vacation our family has had yet! Your home and the little town of Platanitos is a gem of a getaway for those who simply want to kick back and watch the day float by! Our family - with 4 kids ages 14, 12, 8, and 6 thoroughly enjoyed horseback adventures and a whale watching experience that absolutely blew the kids away - 20 feet away from a humpback breaching - WOW!! Words can't begin to describe the care and attention which Lizeth gave all of us - her cooking is truly amazing - fresh squeezed orange juice, guacamole and salsa, the list can go on and on....... Our extremely limited spanish didn't get in the way as Lizeth found and helped us out with so many things from local adventures, to taxis, to helping us find a bank machine when needed..... Loved the little geckos who would come and visit us at night while playing cards and we even managed to meet a friendly lizard down by the lower bedroom - our kids were amazed! The boogie boards were well used and we had no issue crossing over to the main beach - although we did wait until lower tides to get our youngest 2 girls over as the current can be a bit strong during higher tides - the inflatable boat was perfect! While waiting for that though the main pool kept them more than entertained and it often felt as though it was their private spot because few others were around. We are DEFINITELY looking to return and can't wait to once again let our days melt away at your spotless home in paradise!

Plenty of fresh fish restaurants- Great food :)

We are overlooking a beautiful quiet beach, which is also an official turtle reserve. During the nesting season you may visit the turtle research camp. Here you can experience the hatching and the release of these endangered animals. This is a truly memorable experience.

Perhaps you would like to enjoy fishing, whale watching, bird watching or even horseback riding on the beach? The possibilities of a new adventure are endless.

Our family's favorite days are busy with walking and exploring the little pueblas, surfing or hiking to a wonderful waterfall. Let your imagination run wild!
