Three weeks in Sayulita paradise
Submitted: January 7, 2013
Stayed: November 2012
My husband and I stayed in the lower casita for three weeks, and we still were not ready to go home. The property is fantastic for any length of stay. The casitas have all the amenities needed to be comfortable for any length of time, and since we were there three weeks, we used the laundry, we cooked meals, we had friends visit for an afternoon by the pool, and we truly felt at home. The internet is top notch, as I had to work some each day so that was important. We had the pleasure of Doug and Sheran's (owners) company during part of the stay, very enjoyable to spend some time enjoying margaritas with, and the folks that help maintain the property are wonderful, so helpful and keep the property immaculate. The way the property is designed, you can find your private space if you like, or hang out with others around the pool, we met so many great people during our stay as the other casita was occuppied by different couples through our stay. Sayulita itself is a dream vacation spot, and less than a ten minute walk puts you in the heart of town and the beach is just a couple blocks further. There is plenty to do in Sayulita, as well as some great little towns and beaches to go explore. Surfing, boogie boarding and paddle boarding are a must. We highly recommend Stand Up Paddle for lessons/rentals, the crew is super, and they have a great bar in back of the shop for the evenings. Mangiafuoco, the Italian restaurant just down the hill from the property has the best pizza and fresh handmade pasta, it's like being in Italy, for when you finally grow tired of all the great tacos found at the various little taco shops on the street. Los Afortunadas is another great dining place for a nice meal, beautiful garden setting and the best pork chop my husband ever had. Hopping the bus, getting a taxi or even renting a car for the day is easy to do in town, if you want to spend a day in Puerto Vallarta or elsewhere. There are so many activities, great people, great restuarants, there isn't enough space to list them all, but you won't be sorry taking a Sayulita vacation and staying at Casitas Amarilla.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay and had a good time. Sayulita is indeed a wonderful holiday spot, a very special place! Each time we come back, we try to make it a bit better, as we feel that 'coming home' is just as important when you are on holidays. If you should ever find your way back, we'd be pleased to be your hosts once more.
