Tucked away in the palms along the sandy shores of Sayulita Bay lies this lovely beachfront bungalow where tranquility reigns and sunsets are sublime. Just thirty miles north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, this open-air home has a spectacular ocean view right from its infinity pool (warm in the winter months/refreshingly cold in the summer). With three bedrooms (K,K,Bunk set), two bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, on-site laundry, and an open living/dining room, the home can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Housekeeping and bottled water included. The Los Delfines complex also has two swimming pools on the property.
Los Delfines (the dolphins) Casa Numero Uno is a beachfront home within a small well-designed complex near the quiet, northern end of Sayulita. Wake every morning to a view of the majestic Pacific Ocean. Go ahead and say adios to life's little tensions. Sayulita, known for its wonderful restaurants, is also home to many shops and galleries, and world renown surfers. Fill your days with surfing, swimming, hiking, kayaking and fishing. Or simply relax in the ocean breeze with cool margarita and a hammock siesta.
John and Patty Brissenden, pictured with their daughter Elizabeth, have owned Los Delfines Numero Uno since 1999. They have four children and five grandchildren who all love to travel to Sayulita. Their main occupation as Innkeepers/Owners of Sorensen's Resort in beautiful Hope Valley, gives them a busy, fulfilling life. They have successfully operated their resort for the last 28 years, and it is located just south of Lake Tahoe/east of San Francisco at 7,000 ft in the High Sierra. They have a love of the landscape and helped preserve their area in open space through support of the Hope Valley Preservation project with the Trust for Public Land. John is an appointed member of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and Patty is the Chair of The Sierra Fund. They were founding members of Friends of Hope Valley and The Sierra Nevada Alliance, among other groups, and support many environmental, educational, and social non-profit programs.
Patty and John Brissenden purchased this house in 1999
Sayulita, Mexico is quite a special place. Seeking refuge from a busy resort life and cold winters, Sayulita has become our home-away-from-home. It was a place we continued to return to and that made us decide to buy our home here. The beautiful, sweeping beach of Sayulita Bay is quite stunning and the sunsets are a must each evening. We love the atmosphere, the people, the food, the walks into town. Our home is comfortable and decorated with Mexican-style furnishings and art.
Whether in the quiet of the evening, the mornings or middle of the day, we enjoy the relaxation of our private infinity pool just off our front porch. Naps are hard to resist and we always bring our favorite books or listen to music. Sometimes we cook in or hire someone to cook for us. Mostly, we enjoy the many dining experiences in our neighborhood or in town...a short walk away. Our kids love to sunbathe, surf, swim and hike...a perfect family vacation.
Please note that this is the only unit in this complex without air conditioning. I was concerned about the lack of AC and asked the owners directly about it. They reply that "they have never needed it". After many sleepless nights and zero breeze or airflow whatsoever, we were about to lose our minds. Midday naps for the children were impossible and the nights were almost as bad.
To further complicate the issue, we were the closest inhabited unit to a major construction project. From sun up to sun down, 7 days a week, there were saws, hammering, loud music, and cinder blocks crashing down from 2+ stories up.
When we finally complained to the property manager, they responded that they were surprised we "had not complained earlier". Later found out that ever other unit was every other unit in the complex was either vacant, free or offered a full refund.
When we contacted the owners, they diminished our issues and offered extra time on our next trip in the non-high time (read: extra hot) season. NO THANKS!!
I rated it 2 stars because the location is beautiful and the soaking pool may have saved our over-heated lives.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home and the location is absolutely the best in Sayulita. Close to town, yet far enough away from the craziness of town particularly over the holidays. The home is in excellent condition and tastefully decorated in authentic Mexican decor. Thank you for sharing your piece of Paradise.
This is by far our favorite family vacation. We started coming when our youngest son was in grade school, and we just stayed this February during his senior year of high school. The space in this home is perfect! We love the open air feel, the easy access and views of the beach, listening to the surf roll in while sleeping at night (or napping during the day). We love Sayulita's various restaurants and the beach is awesome! We will be returning here for years to come!!
