Overview

Sayulita House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

PLEASE BE SURE TO VIEW OUR NEW LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION!

Casa del Risco is a one bedroom, open floor plan casita, perched 110 ft above a private cove beach, on your own private, walled ½ acre, with 180 degree coastal views, on the Pacific Ocean.

After passing through the iron entrance gate, through flowering gardens and giant palm trees, you descend down several garden steps over a wooden bridge and through an antique door into the casita. The casita is comprised of one bedroom, kitchen, double sink vanity, private WC and an outdoor shower accessible through a glass door. The private outdoor shower, where you may spend more time than expected, is partially enclosed on two sides, covered with a palapa roof and open to a raised garden on the third side. The breathtaking view from the shower includes the waves breaking on the beach & cliffs below as well as the coastline south to Sayulita. Opposite the foot of the bed are sliding doors and sliding screens to the balcony, with a palapa roof and palm tree supports, table and chairs. Breakfast, lunch or sunset dinner can be enjoyed here in total privacy without ever leaving home. Below the balcony is a tiled sun deck with a barbecue, wet-bar, chaise lounges and umbrella. By now you probably have guessed that this is not a place for children. There are several steep cliffs and drop-offs. The steps to the beach have a rope railing but the sunning patios have only planters. You will enjoy the feeling of being in the treetops with the flocks of pelicans that float on the air currents all day long, occasionally diving for fish below. Watch for whales just to the right of the property about 3/4 mile off shore. They like to spend the winter there too.

The property includes numerous patios for sunning or a deep shade garden patio under an ancient Fig tree, all with different spectacular views of the ocean and coastline. The beach below is accessible by traversing rustic steps across the hillside and down to the rocky shoreline and a beautiful sandy beach. The surf can be calm and azure blue to rough and huge waves crashing on the cliff side. During turtle season, leatherbacks have been seen laying their eggs on the full moon tide. The public beach is a short walk out the driveway and down the hill. From there you will find the 2 miles of beach with several restaurants and cafes. Fishing boats, for hire, moor at the far end of the beach. Kayaks can be rented as well at Costa Azul on the beach. If it’s a calm surf, you can paddle back to your private beach or further north along numerous coves.

The pueblo of San Pancho offers many fine restaurants. My favorite is Café del Mar, high on the hill, above town and MarPlata at the bottom of the hill by the beach. Also, the polo field has a fine restaurant where you can watch a Sunday polo match at sunset while having cocktails and dinner. After that you might just walk down the street and watch a soccer game on your way home or stroll through town and shop. If it’s lunch you’re after try the taco stand by the hospital or the one at the foot of the hill before Café del Mar. The next town south of San Pancho is Sayulita, visible from our property, looking south. In Sayulita, surfing is the big draw. Plan to have lunch under a palapa on the beach and watch the surfers that come from all over the world to compete at this location. My favorite lunch spot in Sayulita is actually in town above the village square for fish tacos, you can’t miss it.

Additional services included:

-Maid service - twice weekly

-Gardener - three days per week

Additonal services available:

-Authentic Mexican cooking

GO NOW!!!

Super Wow! Our second time back to Casa Del Risco and such a wonder once again. My partner and I are avid international travelers and this place is in the top 5 if not #1 of the most beautiful accomodation settings we have ever stayed. San Pancho is an unspoiled Pacific Coast treasure with wonderful people and relatively modern amenities, though back in time about 3 decades (which is why we go). Good local restaurants, quiet beach plaza, great people. Note- the walk to town is a solid 20-30 minutes, a bit shorter if you walk the beach, obviously not an issue if you rent a car (not needed though).

We had Abigail come to the house and share her amzing energy with us through massage, Reiki, and food (much of which sourced from her own yard). Such a pleasant soul. We utilized Carlos for airport transportaion once again. Nice to have someone holding a sign with your name on it once you drift through customs.

Thank you all!

I can't say enough. The nightly rate is completely reasonable. Book it! Book it! Book it!

A Unique and Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5
I booked a week at the Casita with my fiancee, not quite knowing what to expect.

What we arrived to was shockingly wonderful. I can honestly say the photos do not come close to capturing the beauty of the scenery and detail of the home, not to mention the care and thoughtfulness that was provided. The owner has managed to create a homey atmosphere, yet modern and chic throughout. Being a complete snobby germaphobe, I was really impressed with the degree of pristine cleanliness and new condition everything was in.

The views are picture perfect and once again are not captured to their full potential in the photos. Every morning we had coffee and breakfast under the palapa, and every night we would lay out on the lawn chairs and stare at the stars. We didn't rent a car but if I were to return again I would definitely get one.

San Pancho is a special little town, quite removed from the usual tourist scene with pleasant people, fantastic restaurants and beautiful nature.

I would definitely stay again and would recommend the casita to anyone looking for relaxation, romance, or just a break from the usual.

Thanks everyone for all your help and hospitality.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for a relaxing, romantic getaway. The casita is very private and has incredible views. We enjoyed watching the whales from our deck. San Pancho is a charming village with more good restaurants than we expected given its size. We enjoyed walking everywhere. It is approximately a mile from the casita to the town center. Abigail, the manager/chef/masseuse, was outstanding in all of her capacities. We highly recommend having her prepare fresh and delicious meals at the casita. My wife loved the massage and Reiki treatment Abigail provided on the deck overlooking the ocean. It was totally relaxing.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5
The minimalist house is beautiful and functional - the view is absolutely spectacular - as is the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. There is a beautiful serpentine walkway down to the surf and beach. We loved our week here and hope to repeat it. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace and were sure to be back from our travels by sunset each day.

A special kind of luxury

  • 5 of 5
This is a really special place. If you're looking for major ammenities, maybe look somewhere else. But if your idea of luxury includes exquisite privacy, watching whales from one of many beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces, or waking up to the sounds and sights of the sea, then this little aerie above the Pacific is for you. It's probably not more than about 700 square feet of living space, but oh, what space. Beautiful, simple materials, careful planning, construction and maintenance make the space as comfortable as anything we've stayed in. And we haven't talked about the bed, the pillows and the sheets. Nothing is overdone at Casa del Risco, or, for that matter, underdone. It's a perfect, private space that seems to stretch over the ocean.
If you like to walk, and are comfortable using local public transit, you don't need a car. You can even hike/walk along some stunning beaches to neighboring Sayulita in about an hour. With the downturn in the North American economy, San Pancho is pretty quiet, but it's easy to catch buses on the highway to Sayulita, Bucerias or PV if you find you need a change of pace. But I have to say, it's pretty nice to sip a mojito on the beach, listening to live music, and not be pestered by vendors.
