One of Sayulita's finest luxury homes, Villa Buena Vista is perched on a bluff overlooking the beach and beautiful Sayulita Bay. A palm-lined, tranquil beach is just 5 minutes away, restaurants and shopping another ten minutes walk along the sands. A combination of hacienda openness and modern luxury, the villa boasts 2 master suites and a 3rd bedroom with bath and wet bar. These bedrooms are steps from our spectacular, saltwater infinity pool and jacuzzi. In addition, we have a semi-attached, 2 level casita, with full kitchen, luxury living room and spacious master suite. Every bedroom in the complex is air-conditioned and boasts spectacular ocean views. The villa also has an airconditioned kitchen/family room, (unique in Sayulita), that opens out to a lush, enclosed garden. In all, the complex sleeps 8 in beds and ten if sleeping sofas are used. The villa may be rented without casita. If the casita only is rented, pool and garden access are excluded. Please contact us for more photos and virtual tours .
ENTERING Villa Buena Vista is like stepping into a Sayulita post card. Sayulita's most famous view, of the ocean, surf break and Sayulita Point, is visible from nearly everywhere in the complex. The entire upper floor of the villa was designed as one, large open space, with gradually descending levels defining the kitchen/family room, dining room and palapa. All interior wall systems are beautiful parota-wood-trimmed glass panels, which were designed to maximize views. The walled garden/courtyard features a hi-end SMEG gas barbeque, with dining set and sun umbrella that are only steps from the kitchen. The kitchen itself is American style, with stainless steel appliances, polished cement counters and spectacular views. Across a low-walled, central passageway is our family/tv room, with a cozy, wraparound sofa, large flat-screen t.v. with dvd player and an extensive dvd collection--featuring many classics. All cabinets and other woodwork are of teak-like, parota wood and done in the Balinese style.
Three steps down from the kitchen/family room is our spacious, spectacular dining room. (we guarantee you will never forget meals taken there). A large table seats up to 12 and is framed by a Moroccan style, gas fireplace on one end, and an antique Tibetan door, painted in the temple style on the other.There is also a small bathroom in this area. Tastefully placed and lighted throughout this level is our extensive collection of ethnic and modern art, accented by an abundance of tropical plants. The entire dining room is open to the palapa, so that you may enjoy your meals and the spectacular views simultaneously.
Our fabulous palapa--with its wraparound sofa system that also seats up to twelve--may be entered from either end of the dining room. Enjoy the great views from here while cozying up with your friends and family, surrounded by tropical plants and wonderful art and lighting.
From either side of the palapa, twin-spiraling staircases lead down to the pool and bedroom level of the villa. People who know say that we have the most spectacular pool setting in Sayulita. The infinity pool and jacuzzi have a state-of-the-art saltwater filtration system, the water sparkling clean without that annoying chlorine smell and residual. The pool is 6 feet deep--with a lounging platform and shallow kiddy area--and the jacuzzi holds up to 6 people. Our favorite thing to do every evening is to take a delicious hot soak in the jacuzzi, followed by a refreshing swim. Afterwards, we stretch out on chaises and relax to the sound of waves on the shore; then doze off while stargazing or meditating on the twinkling lights of the village of Sayulita.
Just steps from the pool area are two spacious master suites. The suites are mirror opposites except for art, with king beds, and accented by the same Balinese style woodwork and detail found on the main level. The bathrooms are large, with separate tumbled marble showers, elegant lighting and artifacts. Between the two suites, along a short gallery hall, is the third bedroom. This room features a wet bar and fridge, (very handy for morning coffee and pool drinks), and has a trundle bed from Oyster Bed in San Francisco, that forms 2 twins. Sheets and linens are in a handy wicker storage trunk that fronts the bed. This room also serves as a small day/living room when not used for sleeping.
Last but not least is our charming, 2-level casita that was inspired by the houses of Old Ibiza. The upper level features a full kitchen and a living area with another spacious, wraparound sofa. The sofa had memory foam cushions and is twin-bed width, roomy enough for two people or children. This room opens to a small terrace with cafe table and spectacular ocean view. The casita is designed with the same attention to detail as the villa, and is filled with wonderful art and artifacts. There is also a flat screen, satellite tv, with dvd player.
Follow a romantic, turret staircase down to the master suite, which features a second ocean view terrace and full bath. The first thing you see when you open your eyes in the morning is that fabulous view of the ocean and Sayulita Point. When shared with friends and family, the casita may be entered from the villa's front garden.

We end each night with a delicious soak in our jacuzzi, followed by a swim in our incredible infinity pool; after which we doze off while stargazing and listening to the rythm of breakers on the shore.
Villa Buena Vista was absolute perfection. We stayed in November over Thanksgiving and the house had everything we needed. The pictures don't lie…breathtaking views, spacious, beautifully decorated, and an incredible infinity pool. The house's location can't be beat (do recommend renting a golf cart for the steep road up to house) but very close to everything. Whenever I had a question or concern, the owner got back to me immediately and the realtor contact, Theo, was also easy to deal with. We will definitely rent this villa again in the future!
Jack and his late wife created the best Villa in Sayulita, you can stop looking now. Art, Architchture, Amenities, Views, Pool, Comfortable King Beds, BBQ, Well Appointed Kithchen, Water Purification (drink freely from any tap) they have thought out every aspect of this one of a kind luxury villa. The only downside is you may miss out on a few days in the village or on the Beach because you just can,t see any real good reason to leave home.. I'm booking January 2015 from one of the the master suites off the pool right now! Julio and Hidie the wonderful staff (Monday,Wednesday,Friday)will make sure your time is spent serene, untroubled and relaxed. Jack also set us up with Mely to come and cook for us one night, unbelivably delicious!We are 3 couples ranging in age from 30's to mid 70's we all had our own space, we could commune when we wanted and have quiet time when we needed.I miss it already!
We loved, loved this house. The view is absolutely STUNNING. Our two youngest kids did not want to leave the house -- they adored the infinity pool! Very clean, comfortable, relaxing. The hike up the hill from town was daunting at first but we figured out quickly how to get a taxi from the main plaza in town. Thank you for a great stay!!!
I stayed here for a week with some girl friends, and it was awe-inspiring from the moment we entered the villa. The furniture and decorations helped it to feel more like a luxurious home than a hotel. As the villa is located on top of a hill, the views of the sunset over the ocean are incredible. It was difficult to leave the infinity pool and atmosphere of deep relaxation for even a few hours to venture into town and the beach. The town and nearby beaches were very inviting, however, and we had some delicious Mexican food. I would highly recommend Villa Buena Vista if you're interested in a relaxing and luxurious break from reality.
I vacationed here with a group of girlfriends and the experience was absolutely amazing. The moment we entered the home, our jaws dropped at the unobstructed, sweeping views of Sayulita's bay and the surrounding areas. We spent many hours enjoying the amazing infinity pool, taking in the views during the day and the spectacular lightning shows at night. The home is thoughtfully built and beautifully decorated, the lighting and dimmers truly create a soothing atmosphere, the art and detailed finishes are tasteful, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are extremely comfortable-but it is truly the views from every room/space of the home that will take your breath away.
The home is a 10 minute walk to town or the beach, but we spent the majority of our time relaxing at the house-it was quite the oasis from the stresses of our everyday living. There was plenty of room for all of us to gather together or relax individually.
The owners and house staff were all really helpful, hospitable and accommodating.
This was a wonderful vacation destination-I would highly recommend this home rental for all type of groups!
I stayed at this lovely villa with a group of girlfriends and it was exactly what we were looking for in terms of comfort, relaxation, amenities, and luxury. Simply spending a day letting your mind wander as you gaze out over the ocean (which stretches out as far as the eye can see) from the main quarters under the large palapa, at the dining table, or while floating in the saltwater pool (you can hear the waves crashing on the shoreline below!) feels like the perfect escape from civilization while the village of Sayulita is a mere 10 minute walk away. The VIlla Buena Vista is the manifestation of comfort and usability coupled with high quality and style. I stayed in the Casita and the bed was super comfy, the AC was lovely (August =hot!), the shower refreshing, and the decks were perfect for meditating with a morning cup of coffee. The staff is friendly and very accommodating and Sayulita offers great places to try the local fare should you feel compelled to ever leave the villa. Bichos (right near the town square) fish tacos or the shrimp quesadilla shouldn't be missed and a breakfast at Chocobanana is another must do. All in all, I am ready to do it all again!
