Overview

Sayulita House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

LA CASITA CELESTIAL, as the name implies, is a Heavenly Place. From the moment you approach the stone-embedded welcoming mat, you’ll know that you are in for a “stellar” experience.

Its GRACIOUS CENTRAL ROOM is filled with stars – and a very comfortable sitting area, a high-definition, large-screen television with American and Canadian programming, a DVD player, wi-fi, a cozy kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, and an eclectic library with books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics and tourist attractions, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts.

A large sliding glass door allows you to walk onto THE TERRACE WITH ITS MAGNIFICENT PALAPA, a thatched roof structure used since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs to capture sea breezes and keep COOL.

Under the palapa is your own private, cooling plunge pool, and classic equipal furniture for dining or relaxing. To the south you see the Pacific; to the east and west, the lush jungle with its fascinating birds and butterflies.

There are TWO BEDROOMS, each with its own bath and distinctive character, filled with works of Mexican artists from all around the country. Keeping with the celestial theme, one bedroom celebrates the sun rising from the east, with roosters standing as a mute reminder that there is a great day a-dawning. The other celebrates the moon shining out over the Gulf of Cortez with owls keeping watch over your deep and restful sleep. To aid in that sleep, both bedrooms are air-conditioned.

CASITA CELESTIAL is part of a three-house villa -- VILLA DE VISTAS (The House of Views). LA CASA QUE CANTA (The House that Sings – 6000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 4 baths) sits on the top of the hill. EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle – 900 sq. ft – two bedrooms, one bath) is nestled into the hillside.

About Melissa Roberts

A note from Melissa and Bill Roberts:

Although we know you will be pampered by our staff in San Pancho, we also want you to know a bit about us. We have lived most of our adult life in Middletown, Connecticut, where Melissa has been a school social worker and Bill a clergyman, and then a consultant. When we were in our thirties with three young sons we built a home on Cape Cod, which became a very special place for our family. But as the boys grew up, moved away to the west coast, and had children of their own, we decided to relocate our vacation home in a place more convenient for them. We found this precious little pueblo called San Pancho and built a very impressive home there. Actually, we built three inter-connected homes.

We will say more about the town and our homes in a moment, but we want to underscore how important both friends and family are to us. We like to think that anyone who rents will also value friends and family and cherish this exquisite vacation home.

Melissa Roberts purchased this house in 2009

Why Melissa Roberts chose Sayulita

San Pancho. The Jewel of the Mexican Rivera. The Cultural Center of the State of Nayarit. A charming little Mexican town which has not lost its character even as it has provided its hospitality to a relatively small group of Americans and Canadians. We are so grateful for the welcome we have received from the folks who have lived here for generations. But we also pleased to be part of an expatriate community which respects the people and the traditions of the Mexicans.

Our guests regularly comment that it is wonderful to be a bit removed from the village. It is quiet here. The primary sounds are the pounding surf, the rustling leaves of the palm trees, and the singing of birds -- some of whom cackle more than they sing.

The property provides a perfect combination of surf and turf, in this case the turf is a jungle.

The CASITA is one of three homes on this property. It is completely separated from the other two, entered by its own stairway or, in the other direction, by a path through a stunning tropical garden. It has its own dipping pool, its own outdoor sitting area, and a large palapa, which ushers sea breezes into the house.

What makes this house unique

We worked with three architects in designing this house. Part of the reason we had so many is that we were determined that we could create characteristics in a single building project which, on the surface, might seem contradictory. But we believe we have been successful in pulling things together. Some examples:

1) The house is utterly open to the natural world, just spilling out into the jungle and overseeing the Gulf of Cortez; yet is can be closed up almost totally, protecting us and provding us with wonderfully intimate places to talk, and eat, and read, and just BE.

2) Our home is really three homes, which means you can have a large group here, BUT you can also use it as a quiet place for a romantic getaway for two.

3) All three houses have high quality appliances, modern cooking conveniences and utensils, and purified water, excellent airconditioning, BUT the glassware and the serving dishes, the furniture and the woodworking, the lights and the tiling -- all things that allow us to show off the exquisite Mexican craftsmanship that we have discovered in traveling through the country.

4) We are quite close to the beach and to town, but we are far enough away and are so totally self-sufficient (what with three pools) that we avoid the noise and the dust and even the traffic of this bustling little pueblo.

Heavenly Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Casa Celestial last week. First of all, your little casita was truly a heavenly place that was just perfect for the peace and relaxation we needed. We were so impressed with the love and thoughtfulness that went into the building of these homes. Every day we would notice another special detail we hadn't noticed before, which just added to making it such a special place. And we loved reading the book with the story of how the Villa De Vistas were built, just imagining how it must have been for you both when you were standing in a jungle trying to envision the homes and how to pull it all together!
We found San Pancho to be such a charming little town with friendly people who really love living there. And Bob Farmer was an absolutely wonderful host who really went out of his way to make our visit most enjoyable.
Thank you again for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

A true Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Casita Celestial for a week at the the hot end of July with my husband and 4-year-old daughter. Even in the heat of the afternoons, the Casita stays cool. The air conditioning and fans work great and the outdoor room gets the breezes. Although this is a small house in comparison with the main house on this property, everything about it feels spacious -- two-sink bathrooms, big comfortable beds, tons of counter space in the kitchen, large outdoor room. My favorite spot was the hammock that hangs just a short walk down the path. Reading a book and listening to the wildlife and the leaves moving in the breeze was lovely. I highly recommend staying at the Casita Celestial.

The Casita is a perfect jewel of a cottage in a magnificant jungle setting complete with tropical bird calls to awaken you in the morning. The kitchen in the Casita is bright and cheerful with wonderful art work and the two bedrooms are separated just enough for real privacy. We particularly enjoyed the friendliness and easy pace of life in San Pancho,especially in comparison with the high pressure tourist hustle that we experienced on our one night in Puert Vallarta. Quite a contrast.

I spent one of the most enjoyable vacations of my life here; everything was all that was advertised (and more). The location was spectacular, the house and gounds an architectual gem, and the rooms attractively furnished and immaculate. Opportunites to swim in the pool or the Pacific, and nearby shopping and birding were great. I would recommend this to anyone without reservation.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Casita Celestial. It was fantastic. The artistic touches throughout the house are well represented in the photos. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners while we were they - and they were just lovely. Everyone that they had available to help us was accommodating and responsive. San Pancho is a wonderful, friendly town with great beach bars to take a break from the waves. We felt very safe and well cared for - a truly relaxing vacation. The town was about a 20-30 min walk along the beautiful beach or a long the roadway, with plenty of places to stop along the way.
The grounds the home were well kept and the attention to detail around the pool and house were just breathtaking.

A Fabulous Stay....

  • 5 of 5
A big family celebration was made possible when we found this ideal place to stay. We had a big group (10 adults and 6 children) and we were lucky to all be located on the same property. My family of three children were fortunate enough to stay in the "Tropical Paradise Palapa Casa". A very nice home tastefully decorated with bright colors and very clean. Very comfortable beds and the bathrooms off each room were a treat including a shower area in both. The covered palapa was a good cool place when you wanted to escape the sun and heat. The kids loved the dipping pool as did I. Under the palapa was a great place to sit in the early morning and late at night to take in the spectacular lush scenery and listen to all the wildlife. With the family playing in the big pool at the main house it was quiet enough for my baby to sleep when she needed. We were provided playpens for the little ones apon request and were very grateful for that. Everything for cooking is provided and made easy. A treat to prepare food and drinks in.
After spending a week here it was difficult to pack up and leave : (
We had a fabulous time and our family will cherish all the great memories we made together here!

The CASITA CELESTIAL IS A FIVE-MINUTE WALK TO THE BEAUTIFUL SAN PANCHO BEACH!

It is a twenty-minute walk to the center of the pueblo.

It is situated in a beautiful jungle garden which includes a hammock grove and also a deck for sitting and sunning.

It is part of a three-house villa. You might want to look at the VRBO sites # 244889 and 283934.

Finally, we want you to know that the CASITA is beautifully appointed. Every room has Mexican artsand crafts that were commissioned just to carry out the theme of a little house that sits in a jungle and celebrates the heavens -- stars, sun, moon.
