Overview

Sayulita House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms w king size beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Casa Colibri on Calle Naranjito is a beautiful, spacious, custom-built casa situated 5 minutes walking distance from the heart of the village and the main beach, yet very private and quiet. Casa Colibri captures all the beauty and uniqueness Sayulita has to offer. You will enjoy a gorgeous view from each room of the ocean, lush green mountains beyond, and surrounding jungle with beautiful hillside homes. We offer two separate, private casitas, one with two bedrooms, and another with one bedroom. They can be rented separately, or you can reserve both for a larger group. Both casitas have their own private entrances and terraces overlooking the bay of Sayulita, providing indoor/outdoor living in a lush garden setting.

The two bedroom casita will sleep up to 5 people. It is very private with a separate walkway from the quiet cobblestone street below. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make your vacation easy and comfortable. The 1000 sq ft home surrounds a large terrace overlooking ocean and jungle views. The two spacious and airy bedrooms have views, comfy king-size beds w pillow top mattresses, 100% cotton linens, and air conditioning. They are situated at opposite ends of the casita, with the living room and kitchen in thie center, to optimize privacy. Each bedroom has its own large bathroom. One bedroom has handcrafted french doors opening to the terrace, the other has a sitting area with views of the jungle. One of the bedrooms can also be arranged with two twin beds if desired. Maid service is provided 6 days a week. Enjoy tasteful decor collected from our travels in Mexico, colorful tile and art, and comfortable furnishings throughout. The open concept living room/kitchen opens to a spacious terrace with a palapa shaded dining table for six and chaise lounge chairs. The kitchen has a center island w seating and is fully equipped with cookware, appliances, and everything else you need to prepare a fabulous meal. There is a propane bbq on the terrace where you can relax with a margarita, grill your catch of the day, and watch the sunset.

The newly built 1 bedroom casita offers all the same amenities. Large full kitchen/living area w colorful Mexican tile and decor, bedroom with king size bed with pillow top mattress and 100% cotton sheets, large bath, and terrace w dining table for four and chaise lounge chairs. All in a lush garden setting with jungle and bay views. It rents for $130/night during high season and $100/night during low season.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped with walkways and terraces winding through an assortment of exotic, fragrant, flowering, tropical plants and trees. Enjoy refreshing ocean breezes blowing through the windows and across the patios.

An easy 5 minute scenic stroll down a cobblestone street will take you to the beach and village, where there are grocery stores and many good restaurants for every meal of the day, offering simple to gourmet, including American, Asian Fusion, Italian, French, and of course, delicious Mexican and seafood dishes. The shopping is awesome with unique jewelry, clothing, home décor, art galleries, and handmade items from all over Mexico. Spa treatments abound in several locations in town. And if you want some adventure during you stay there is surfing, fishing, horseback riding, ATVing, jungle hiking, and zip lining, all for which Sayulita is famous.

Nearby are many attractions for visitors. The quiet village of San Francisco (“San Pancho” to locals) is a fifteen minute taxi ride to the north. It has a beautiful, wide and long beach with few people and a large lagoon with many shorebirds coming and going. There are several good restaurants there. You can also take a bus or cab from Sayulita to the Punta Mita peninsula, where you can catch a sailing, whale watching, or fishing trip out of the beautiful marina.

A stay at Casa Colibri encompasses all Sayulita has to offer at a great value!

About Joan and Dave

Two years ago we quit our jobs and sold our home in San Diego to fulfill our dream of retirement in a Mexican seaside village.

We did our research, and decided Sayulita had all the qualities we were looking for. Authentic and quaint, yet lively and fun, a great surf break, stunning natural beauty, and a very friendly, safe community of locals and expats.

Joan and Dave purchased this house in 2013

Why Joan and Dave chose Sayulita

After quite a few house hunting trips, we narrowed down our search to the south end of Sayulita. We wanted an exceptional home for our guests and ourselves, easy walking distance to town and the beach, with ocean and jungle views. When we toured Casa Colibri, we knew this was home. It is truly a special place that provides all Sayulita has to offer, beautiful views, close to everything, and tasteful, casual comfort.

What makes this house unique

Casa Colibri is located in a lush, colorful, garden setting overlooking Sayulita's beautiful bay. It is on a cobblestone street in a neighborhood that is private and quiet, yet close to all the action at the beach or in town. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make your vacation an exceptional one.

A lovely home that is great for families

  • 5 of 5

Three generations (6 individuals) of our family stayed at Casa Colibri for Christmas and New Year - a very busy time in Sayulita. Every evening we got to retreat from the activity to the lovely Casa, and every aspect of our stay was great. Joan arranged the very convenient shuttle pick up to and from the airport, with a delightful driver who waited for us despite a terrible delay at the airport, and stopped at the big grocery store on the way so that we could stock up for our arrival. After a long day of travel we couldn't have been happier with what awaited us - a spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and well-stocked home, surrounded by lovely garden and beautiful view. The walk to the beach and town really is just 5 minutes (although more like 15 or 20 if you have a two-year old...), and we found a great walk through the jungle to Playa Muertos from the house. Joan and Dave were away for most of our visit, but the caretakers they had looking after us were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.

Spacious, Recently Renovated Condo with Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Sayulita in Oct. with 2 friends for a week surf vacation. None of us had traveled there before and could not have had a better experience at Casa Colibri. Not only were the accommodations well above our expectations, the owners Joan and Dave were welcoming, helpful, and a great resource for us in exploring the town. The condo had just finished an amazing renovation, and the layout offers a ton of space and privacy. There is a functional, lovely kitchen (stocked with cooking essential, new pots, and Dave even supplied us with a coffee grounds for the next morning!) with a scenic, picturesque view. The owners supplied us with bottled water. Town is a quick 5 min walk downhill, which allows for close proximity to night life and the beach, and alternately feels like you are removed from the action of downtown immediately when you return. Relaxing and ideal, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this rental to anyone traveling to Sayulita.

Beautiful casita, warm and welcoming hosts, optimal location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Sayulita, but our first stay at Casa Colibri and we will certainly come back. We were one of the first guests to stay at their brand new one bedroom casita. We have used VRBO all over the world and this one exceeded our expectations. We took a leap of faith and rented it while it was still under construction based on the photos of the main home and Joan's understanding of what we were looking for. The home was beautifully constructed and had all the kitchen equipment many rentals skimp on. We love to shop locally and cook at home and everything from the knives (sharp!), cutting boards, to the full size stainless steel appliances made every meal a delight to prepare. Joan and Dave are warm, gracious hosts that are readily available for any questions or suggestions, but you don't feel like you are camping out in their living room! A truly wonderful stay and a great value!

Wonderful Stay at Casa Colibri

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at Casa Colibri, and would highly recommend. We were made to feel at home by Joan & Dave, who are gracious hosts, and really provide a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The home itself has a great layout, and nice details. The bedrooms are spacious, and each has its own private bathroom with shower. We enjoyed the location, too, and felt that it was far enough from town to have serenity, while close enough to easily walk to the shops and restaurants. Joan and Dave gave us great recommendations, both for beaches & food! The gardens surrounding the place are lush and give the home even more privacy and beauty. Nice people & lovely home! Thank you!

Wonderful place, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Colibri for 5 nights in February 2014. As others have mentioned, the casita is well appointed, spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The view from the patio is spectacular and we enjoyed having breakfast out there each morning. However, the best thing about Casa Colibri was our hosts, Dave and Joan. We were so intrigued to hear their story of making the decision to move to Sayulita, and they could not have been more gracious and welcoming. The night we arrived, we hopped into their golf cart for a tour of the town, complete with a drive-through cerveza pick up! They dropped us off at a restaurant they recommended, and throughout our stay were available to answer any questions we might have. We really enjoyed meeting their kids, who often stopped to chat with us out on the patio ...great kids! We would highly recommend Casa Colibri to anyone coming to Sayulita - easy walking distance to town and the beach, and so comfortable that we really felt that we were coming "home" at the end of each day. Thanks, Dave and Joan, for a wonderful stay and your generosity - we hope to come and stay again!

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful casita for 2 weeks this May, 2014. The casita and the hosts exceeded my expectations all the way around. Although very private, I felt that if I needed anything at all, all I had to do was ask. We felt completely safe and well cared for. The casita itself is so very charming and extraordinarily comfortable. The photos do not really do it justice! The breezes are amazing and the view was something I will never forget. I spent many a morning with my coffee out on the veranda watching the sun rise over the mountains and sea - and listening to the birds sing their morning songs. Parrots too! I will stay here with Joan and Dave next time I come to Sayulita, which hopefully will be very soon. Really, it was lovely in every way.
