Just 30 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport where the jungle meets the ocean on a beautiful gently sloping hillside with 360-degree views of ocean and jungle, and only 75 yards from the ocean sits Casa Rana Verde, a tropical paradise in wonderful, sunny Sayulita! The fully-furnished home features ocean and jungle views from every room and one-plus acre of private, gated land with wading and adult pools connected by a cascading waterfall, that cascades onto an ocean viewing bench to watch the sunset over the ocean! Our ocean view pool is the best in Sayulita!
We live right next door to the estate to assure that your vacation will be all you expect it to be. All 3 bedrooms are very large with extra built in beds. They are furnished with the finest amenities such as Ralph Lauren towels, 250+ thread count all cotton sheets (only natural fiber products are used throughout), down pillows, televisions with DVD players and a DVD library of TV sets & movies, iPod player, Guatemalan fabrics for all curtains and pillow covers, our personal art collection from travels throughout Mexico/Guatemala, furnishings that will allow you all the comforts you need while enjoying our incredible villa. Our kitchens are stocked with as many small appliances, coffee cups, wine glasses, plates, bowls, etc. as you have in your own homes. The kitchen ware is matching Fiesta ware. Everything is in abundance.
The villa is located at 'Villas Rana Verde' Sayulita's premiere estate property, with almost 1 1/2 acres of private land, we are one of the largest pieces of estate property in Sayulita. The beach across the street is one of the most pristine, sandy, private beaches with the cleanest water in Sayulita. It is not unusual to be the only person on the beach for 1/4 mile in each direction. There is great surf fishing on the beach right across the street from the estate. The fisherman regularly catch snook, sea bass, grouper and many other varieties. It is a nesting grounds for Leatherback turtles who can be seen in the early morning hours and late evenings during summer months laying their eggs or hiding the nests before their return to the ocean.
We are located about 1/2 mile from the village in an area of private villas away from the night noise of the village with its roosters (why do they have to start crowing at 2:30AM?), cantinas, and Saturday night disco, and all night drum circles. Your quiet night of sleep is assured. We are across from the most pristine, private, sandy beach you have ever seen, just a 2 minute walk on a cobblestone path. The short 10 minute walk to town can be along the beach or a quiet, low traffic paved road.
We provide everything you need for a luxurious and relaxing stay. Hair dryers in every bathroom, organic fruit from the estate for your table, every day maid and pool service, optional cook, beach towels (chairs and umbrellas too), fresh flowers, the best of everything, all in the very private setting. Our villas can not be seen by each other or by the surrounding villas. Our driver can pick you up at the airport in an air conditioned Suburban with cold drinks of your choice. If you are looking for a very private getaway without even leaving the estate, our cook can prepare the best Mexican meals. She brings her masa dough for tortillas, along with her wooden press (many guests enjoy pitching in and making their own tortillas, it is lots of fun with Lucia), and she prepares salsa, guacamole, rice, beans, and 2 entrees with your choice of chile rellenos, shrimp, fish, chicken, pork or beef. Most guests tell me this is one of the highlights of their trip.
Our lovely estate is home to the most beautiful birds that you are likely to witness outside the most complete aviary of exotic, tropical, colorful birds. We have identified over 100 varieties of these magnificent creatures. There is an even larger abundance if you venture into the nearby jungle.
The best tropical garden in Sayulita is at your doorstep all within the private, gated compound. We have so many varieties of palms, sweet smelling exotic flowers, flowering trees, organic fruit for your table, and much more for your enjoyment.
