Caracol Estates is a luxury development on "Gringo Hill" overlooking the plaza and beach of Sayulita, both a five-minute walk away. It has a one-acre extensively landscaped site; with only four units, the property offers privacy and quiet to its guests.
This unit (Casa Sol) is self contained, air conditioned,and was constructed during the summer of 2008. It has extensive ocean and mountain views and outdoor areas. Shared amenities include a solar heated pool-to-die-for complete with palapa seating area for 10,and extensive gardens that are maintained by a full time gardener. The property features over a thousand feet of walking paths, and an open viewing site overlooking the town and ocean.
JoAnn and I are from Saskatchewan, and moved to the west coast of Canada in 1989. We have been enjoying family vacations in Mexico since 1995, usually on the Pacific Coast side, to which flight connections from southwest British Columbia are easiest. We enjoy beach areas and prefer staying in a house or apartment rathern than hotels and resorts.
We have three grown children, and wanted a property where we could all gather to enjoy holidays together, and as a retirement spot. We purchased the Caracol property in 2007 and have since renovated it to meet our family needs. When we're not there, we enjoy renting it; we've met many wonderful people who come as guests.
Sayulita is perfect for us! The weather is great and the beaches first rate; it's a bustling small town that is safe, and where we have made a surprising number of friends with north americans and locals alike.
Sayulita is a safe town with easy access from a major international airport on the west coast of Mexico, that of Puerta Vallarta. The airport terminal building abuts the highway; one can easily cross the highway using an overpass, and catch either the bus (about 20 pesos per person) to Sayulita or a taxi (about 450 pesos). Local stores carry all the basics, and good shopping is available nearby in Bucerias and Puerta Vallara.
Our home in Mexico is a restful place; we limit guests and visitors, insist on damage deposits, and enforce 'quiet hours' (except for the local roosters!) It has over an acre of landscaped gardens (supervised by Enrique, a local arborist), a great pool, extensive views, and a quiet setting overlooking the town plaza. The homes are well built and well kept.
