Guestbook comments from the owner
Within 10 minutes of arrival I knew we had picked the right place after our kids commented, "this is going to be the best vacation!" while taking in the spectacular ocean view from the living room. We all converged from so. California, Utah and Seattle to celebrate our daughter's 30 birthday....a special week for family time and it turned out to be so much more than we had ever expected. We each had our own private en suite, the best-view-ever kitchen for cooking, and comfortable, open living room for quiet evenings of talk, games and reading. We absolutely loved Sayulita and we absolutely loved Ventana al Mar! Again, I knew we had picked the right place when only half-way through our stay our daughter commented, "I can definitely come back here!" Thank you, Julie, for sharing your beautiful villa with us! We will be back!

Doug owns and operates an electrical contracting business and Julie is a registered nurse working in OB services. We live in Santa Barbara, California, have 3 kids and 4 year old grandson and a new granddaughter!! We love to work in the garden, hike in the mountains, cook, travel, spend time with our families and relax when we can! We love Mexico and have traveled to many different areas over the years. We especially like exploring new places and brushing up on our Spanish!

Julie Mershon purchased this house in 2006

We first visited Sayulita in 2003 and found what has become our second home. We immediately feel in love with the whole laid back vibe and feeling of family the town had to offer. We had talked for many years about living out of the US and finally found our spot. We had a 12 year old at the time and we really appreciated the family friendliness of Sayulita. We looked at many homes for sale during that time but in the end decided to purchase our lot, which has an incredible view, and create our own space. With the help of a talented architect/builder and Doug's many years in the contracting business we spent a year and a half building Ventana and enjoyed the adventure immensely.

Our home sits just up from the beach road so it is an easy walk down to the beach but because it sits up above the road we get wonderful breezes and incredible views. Our neighborhood on the north end is perfect for us. It is close enough to walk to town but far enough away from all the noise of the cars and late night bars. Some days we never leave the house!

This year (2013) we added a beautiful fourth bedroom on the top floor with a spectacular view of the entire bay!

TUCKED AWAY HIDDEN PARADISE.

  • 5 of 5
We immensely enjoyed our stay at Ventana Al Mar. From the minute we walked thru the front entrance, it felt as though we had arrived to a hidden paradise, with lush planting and spectacular views. The house itself was spacious, well maintained and equipped with every possible ammenity. It was a relaxing and memorable stay. Our family highly recommends this hidden treasure to everyone.

I KEEP COMING BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
The photos of Ventana el Mar are gorgeous, but it is even better in person. When you open the front door and BAM, they view, the lighting, it is spectacular.
WE have stayed here over and over again. The, place is immaculate, the grounds are lovely, all of the staff could not be nicer. I have never gone back to the same place time and time again, but we just love Sayulita and this house.
It is fun to walk into town, lots of fun spots to eat, from street tacos, to a pizza place with an authentic pizza oven. You can also walk to the beach.

INCREDIBLE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to begin. We just returned from our second visit and all I can say is that Ventana al Mar is absolutely wonderful in every way. Arely greets you at the door when you arrive to be sure you are comfortable. The house and casita are gorgeous, with attention to even the smallest detail from the beautiful artwork everywhere, right down to the cookware. There is a whole-house water filtration system so you don't even have to think about drinking the water - just do it! The walk to the beach is about three minutes, and to town is about fifteen minutes. There is a great water view from the house, and yet you feel secluded. The pool area is very private and has a new gas barbecue and even a fridge to keep the Modelo cold. Maria, the housekeeper is warm and wonderful and I hope you will try to speak even rudimentary Spanish with her so you can get to know her better. And Pancho comes around every few days to tend to the flowers, shrubs, and yard. It's sort of like being at home, only better because you are on vacation in Sayulita. This was our sixth trip to Sayulita. My wife and I go with our grown daughters and their significants, and I'm sure every one of them would agree with this review. It's just a great place.

Ventana Al Mar is a paradise. Once you arrive at the beautifully appointed house with it's incredible ocean view, you just don't want to leave! It feels like your home away from home. Upi, the
manager, is so welcoming and attends to your every need. She arranged a wonderful meal for us, a
chef came to the house and cooked us a delicious dinner. The beds are very comfortable - such a
treat and not always what you get when you rent or stay at a hotel. The location is ideal, close
enough to walk to the beach or into town. The town itself is terrific, lots of great little restaurants
and shops, but it still has a very casual and laid back atmosphere. This was our 2nd stay - the first
time was with our kids who loved the pool and the beach. They also loved staying in the separate
casita. This time we came alone and had a wonderfully peaceful and romantic vacation. I highly
recomment this property for families or couples. There is a great selection of movies for all ages,
games and books. But mostly everyone just enjoys the serenity, beauty and comfort of Ventana Al
Mar. Thank you Mershons for another unforgettable experience.

A week in Paradise is how I would describe the incredible experience I have just had in Ventana Al Mer, possibly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Up on the hillside with a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean, a crystal clear salt water pool (very soothing) and vibrant foliage this wonderful house effortlessly combines the art and beauty of traditional Mexico with all modern amenities.I am fortunate that my job has allowed me to travel all over the world and I have stayed at many top notch hotels but I can honestly say that nowhere else have I felt as inspired by my surroundings or treated as well as I was at Ventana Al Mer. The joy and harmony I felt there has followed me back to Los Angeles making me wonder if maybe, in Ventana Al Mar, I have found another home. And now, having already promised to take along some friends, I can’t wait to return. A Heartfelt Thank You,Susan

We walked into the house and were immediately breathless. The house is beautiful, the views are amazing, and the way the place as a whole makes you feel is unforgettable. We had a group of 7 for a birthday weekend and spent afternoons at the pool grilling, late afternoons at the beach, sunset at our house (for the best views!) and had a chef cook our meals. We never had to leave!! Best weekend ever. "
