Overview

Sayulita Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 full ensuite bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Hidden among mature trees and tropical gardens is this oasis in Sayulita: Casa Duende.

Each of the three well-appointed bedrooms at Casa Duende have their own private en-suite bathrooms. A high, decorative wall blocks the view into the Casa from passersby street side, and the walls surrounding the side and back of the house ensure that the grounds are totally private. Guests can relax on the large, ground-level patio, equipped with a stainless-steel BBQ, sink and bar/counter - plus make use of the built-in wood smoker for the fresh fish you'll get from the local fishermen.

The two upper level bedrooms have a palapa-covered living room, and overlook the gardens and neighboring trees. The doors to the kitchen and living room are completely screened and open up onto the patio for a view of the bouganvillas, banana trees, cactus plants and gardens. Casa Duende is a quick, level, 3-minute walk to the plaza and to Sayulita beach.

There are no hills to walk, making this ideally accessible for all ages. There are stores nearby for purchasing groceries or other necessities. While there is no need for a car at Casa Duende, there is street parking should you require it.

Sit outside and listen to the birds while you have your morning coffee or a dinner of fresh fish that you just smoked and BBQ'd outside.

Life doesn't get better than Casa Duende.

The location is great, close, but not too close. The lay out of the house is great, each bedroom has it's own bath, and the garden is where we spent much of our time. The property is well maintained and well managed, everyone was very helpful. Don't hesitate, if casa Duende is available for your trip just book it.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
I brought my daughters, ages 21 and 16 the last week of August for a Sayulita visit. Our stay at Casa Duende was perfect for us, mostly because of the location. Even though we had a car, we were able to walk only a couple blocks to the Plaza, taco stand, breakfast joint, ice cream place and most importantly, beach! The girls met other young people and were able to walk in to town to dance at night and walk safely home. The house is colorful with a gorgeous garden upon entry. It was exceptionally quiet and private except for morning chickens. Nothing woke us up. One thing to keep in mind for a family is the upper rooms can only be entered from the outside stairs as they are separate suites. I wanted the girls a little closer to me at night, but we worked it out. The house has everything you need to cook but with town so close it's almost easier to grab a fresh, grilled, homemade taco on the street. Bedding could be upgraded to cotton and the furniture a little bulky for the size of the hang out room. Cleaning only happened once all week when we were there.

Sayulita Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had 5 adults, and the house was so charming! The beds were super comfortable and the décor was very inviting. The premises were pristine. Master bedroom was the only room with A/C, with other rooms having ceiling fans. The weather was very warm, but leaving the large screened windows open helped a bunch! We were advised not to drink the water, but there was plenty of bottled water made available for us. Little geckos came out in the evenings and were fun to watch. We had coffee out on the patio every morning, watching some of the exotic birds. Picking ripe bananas off the tree in the yard was a treat! There are some noisy little roosters in the mornings that seem to compete with eachother but all those little things made the stay so memorable. A block and a half from the beach and quaint restaurants in town with exceptional food. We cannot wait to go back to Sayulita and would recommend Casa Duende and give 5 Stars! Thanks Joe & Carol for sharing your lovely home away from home!

An Outstanding Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We're a retired couple, in our mid-60's, who spent six weeks at Casa Duende this winter. We've traveled to places in North America and Europe as well as Asia, and Casa Duende is right at the top of the list. The premises were spotless, and housekeepers visit during the week to keep it that way. It's exceptionally safe, quiet, and cool with a wonderful garden setting. It was great at the end of each day to come back to the quiet coolness of our patio and balcony at Casa Duende. With three bedrooms and three baths, we were able to invite our adult kids to come down and visit, as well. Virginia and the staff at Primavera Properties were friendly and prompt whenever questions came up, and there were no problems whatsoever for us to deal with. The beach is five minutes' walk away, as is the downtown area. Sayulita is a friendly, accommodating town, and we actually got to know some of the local residents. If you want to experience "genuine" Mexico without the resort bubble around you, this is the place. Casa Duende was a wonderful warm weather escape for us this year. We have nothing but good things to say about it. It's a beautiful destination.

Wonderful stay at Casa Duende

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming house. Its location is about two blocks from either the main plaza or the beach, so it is very convenient to both, and there's a little tienda just a few doors down to buy groceries and a sweet little restaurant--Antonia's--also a few doors down with good food but slow service (on our second visit we took a deck of cards). You enter Casa Duende through a gate on the street and go down some steps through a lovely garden. There is no view of the ocean or the town but the view of the garden is delightful. After being out in the hot sun, it always was a relief to return to our shady sanctuary. The house is not large but was perfect for my wife and I, my son, and my nephew. Each of the boys had his own room with bath upstairs and my wife and I shared a bedroom and bath on the main level. The kitchen was well supplied with utensils and such, and we mostly cooked and ate at home, grilling fish and shrimp on the large outdoor grill, and whipping up papaya and mango smoothies in the blender. In the evenings we played cards on the patio. We were there during Semana Santa, when the town is inundated with Mexican tourists and the plaza sometimes has two bands battling at the same time. We were glad to be a couple of blocks from the plaza where all the noise and commotion was distant and barely audible from the house. We heard roosters and in the mornings the noisy chachalaca birds. If you hike up the road rather than down to the plaza and main beach, you can get to Los Muertos beach, which is in a cove with low surf, and Caricitos beach, which had high surf. The property managers--Virginia and Elsa at Primavera--were very helpful and their office was nearby. They met us at the plaza, accompanied us to the house, and showed us how everything worked. The owner, Joe, also was very helpful, answering a number of questions I had by email prior to our stay. The listing was very accurate. Overall, I'd say that Casa Duende is not opulent but is very charming and peaceful and well-maintained. I hated to leave and I look forward to my next visit.

clean and comfortable, beautiful gardens

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Casa Duende for two weeks and it was absolutely perfect. All was as expected from the listing - there were no nasty surprises or disappointments.

The location was excellent, in town without being in the middle of the hubbub. It was fast and easy to come back home to rest or grab something we forgot and then head out the door and a block later we're back in the middle of things. And even though it was close to the action, we rarely heard sound from the bars, at least not anything we noticed.

The garden was so beautiful. One of the bedrooms faces it and it was so amazing waking up to it every morning. There is tonnes of outdoor seating, including a little table on the covered upper deck, so it was really easy to be outside most of the time.

The house was very clean, very well-maintained, as were the gardens.

The property managers provided excellent customer service. They were very responsive whenever we had a question.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to be able to return and stay there again. It seems particularly well-suited for a group of friends or large family as each bedroom has its own bathroom and the two upper bedrooms have separate entrances. Plus there is lots of room to spread out outside, with the 2 decks and many tables.

Overall, Casa Duende was a huge part of what was an amazing and very relaxing stay in Sayulita!
