Sayulita is a small fishing village located on the west coast of Mexico and home to about 5,000 Mexican citizens, surfers, and laid back tourists during the winter months and about half that number in the summer. The village is about 45 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport and is a perfect place to visit for fishing, reading on the patio, quiet walks, snorkeling, surfing, and eating great seafood.
The village is surrounded by lush jungle and the panorama of mountains and the ocean is amazing. The area is semi-tropical, meaning that it has two primary seasons, one rainy and the other dry. The dry season runs from October until late June or early July when the rains start in a normal year. During the rainy season it rains most days beginning about dusk and rains with lots of thunder and lightning most nights. Both seasons have their special advantages but the best, we think, are the months between November and June.
We are family with 6 homes in a family compound on a hill overlooking the beach on the south side of Sayulita with spectacular views (and beach access). The property is on the beach road and the houses go up the hill and contain from 1 to 3 bedrooms; three have private pools. We’ve worked hard at creating homes we love and that we hope you will too.
Keywords: 6 family owned houses on South Hill that are on or above Beach that have from 1 to 3 bedrooms. Pools at three of the houses.
If you are from a part of the world that is dark and dreary in the winter, Sayulita feels like heaven on earth! The first time I saw it I knew I wanted a home there. It is one of the most spectacular places I've ever been!
What makes this house unique
the houses cascade down a hill to the beach offering the most spectacular views of the coast to the north and Sayulita's beaches, which are right in front! Three of the houses have pools and all are designed and furnished to offer guests an amazing holiday in a top quality setting.
Casa Carlos - Beautiful home with a million dollar view of the Sayulita Beach
5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Carlos. The house was beautifully decorated in the Mexican style but the outdoor decks and spaces are what really made this house special. We spent most of our time that we were "home" , from morning coffee to last glass of wine before bed, outside on the veranda gazing down at the beach scene below us, mesmerized by the surfers and fishing boats and the beauty around us. You can even watch surfers down below from the shower of the master bedroom. The location was perfect because the best surfing and swimming beach in Sayulita was just down the stairs from the house and the cobblestoned street to the plaza was just down the other side. You will definitely get a good work out going and coming from this house but one needs to work out all that good food in town somehow! The only drawback was the loud beating noise from a disco on the beach every night that would go until 4 or so every morning. We were there over spring break so maybe this is not always a problem but it was for us. Make sure and bring ear plugs and sleeping pills if you have them. Overall Casa Carlos was a lovely home in every way and we hope to return someday again...thank you! The other homes on the property also seemed very nice. We had a chance to peek into Casa Jardin on change over day and it was also very beautiful with great outdoor spaces and the same amazing view.

Owner's Response: Hi and thanks so much for taking the time to write your wonderful review.. And you are right on the money about the awful music! It started a few years ago and we are working hard to get the police to enforce the law but it's a very complicated situation. We hope to have it sorted out next year. Until then, you will keen your ear plugs a few days a week in the high season! Cap Sparling
