CASA MARAVILLA - HIDDEN JEWEL IN AN ENCHANTED SETTING/ JUNGLE/OCEAN VIEWS

Sayulita House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, close to Beach, easy 10 minute walk to town

Casa Maravilla - loosely translated as 'Wonderful House'. And it is. It's a circular design with surprises at every view and yet very tranquil. This private haven has great trees, garden, and outdoor spaces. Perfect for bird-watching. There are three bedrooms - two up and one down w/separate entrance. Two full baths, two half baths. Well-equipped kitchen next to living and two dining areas. 2nd Floor terrace with hammock. Additional dining and living with a small pool under a giant rooftop palapa. The views are terrific - ocean, sunsets, jungle - a perfect location and just a block and a half from the beach and a 10 minute walk from the charming village of Sayulita.

“Casa Maravilla was a magical gem. Our family came to Sayulita to relax, celebrate, and enjoy family time together, and this home and town did it all for us. We celebrated our daughter’s first birthday here, and our son turned into the number one beach explorer. My wife relaxed and read, while I surfed. Everyone from Marcos to Lupe to Mitch made our trip so enjoyable. Can’t wait to return.”

'We came to Sayulita for a wedding and were the envy of all our friends once they saw our amazing accommodations. This place is wonderful.' Tim – Winnepeg, Canada

'We loved the house and location. Perfect really. Love the curvy design - pleasant breezes in every room. What wonderful architecture. And loved the mornings on the roof deck watching all the birds. Such a special home.” Ginny - San Mateo, CA

House specifics:

The first floor is a large ground level air conditioned bedroom (a king bed that may be converted for use as two twins). Also on this level is a utility area, and half bath, with outdoor shower. This ground floor area has a separate entrance from the main house. All sheets, towels, etc. throughout Casa Maravilla are high grade cotton and very comfortable. Excellent pillows as well, and plenty of them.

The next level has two large air-conditioned bedrooms and one bathroom - great shower - no tub. One bedroom has a full-size bed and the somewhat larger one has a king that can be converted to make two twins. Both bedrooms have generous work spaces for writing your next novel, etc. There is an additional twin blow up beds available and a portacrib and a porta crib for a little one.

The next level up is the living/dining/kitchen area. There is dining for 10 at the two tables, a well appointed kitchen, two couches and a nice full bathroom (no tub). Also on this level are outdoor spaces with a view of the ocean over the coconut palms. The house design is pretty amazing - it's shady, cool, and breezy - and ceiling fans are everywhere, in addition to the air conditioned bedrooms.

On up the stairs to the rooftop floor one will find additional dining, a bar with a small fridge, a large palapa sitting area, a bath w/shower, and a small “dipping” pool. The pool’s about chest high - 12’ or so in diameter - and great for relaxing, cooling off, and whatever. The views on this level are pretty terrific - jungle, ocean, lovely neighborhood, etc. For the adventurous, the comfy, long banca (couch) sleeps two under the stars (covered by a palapa in case of showers.)

“This house is so comfortable an beautiful. Everyone connected with it has been completely helpful and friendly. Would definitely return – actually – why am I leaving??” March 2014

'Que Bonita! Our first trip to Sayulita won’t be our last and I know where we’ll be staying from now on – Casa Maravilla has it all: pool, shade, quiet, hidden in the trees, great views and a wonderful rooftop palapa.' Pat, Sarah, and Little Liana. Boise Idaho.

'What a fabulous vacation. Thank you for opening your house to us. We had many wonderful meals in the kitchen, and many lazy afternoons by the pool. It was exciting to watch our little girl learn to swim in the pool…After a night out on the town it was so wonderful to come back to your comfortable home.' Mel, Jair, and Nova - British Columbia Canada

'Great vacation spot! What a beautiful house! Michael, you have a jewel here! We have seen such a variety of wildlife, and such a tranquil spot with great food. This place definitely rates a return visit. Thanks for a memory.' Pete and Sue – CA

“Casa Maravilla was the perfect place for our first trip to Sayulita. We loved the bird watching from the dining table. Our baby learned many new words and bird calls thank to the abundant wildlife (caw, caw). Exploring Sayulita was so much fun!! Playa de los Muertos was peaceful and relaxing, and the beaches on the North end were simply stunning. Much thanks to Lupe and Mitch for making this a stress-free vacation. We can’t wait to return!”

UNIQUE CASA

  • 4 of 5
The casa itself is built right into a tree which is really fantastic. The sounds of the jungle combined with the crashing waves produces a fantastic night symphony! We were there for a girls getaway. The home was very clean and everyone involved including owner, property manager and housekeeper were friendly, helpful and welcoming. All of Michaels restaurant recommendations were fantastic. It really helped us narrow down the "must eat at" places. Location was great. My only other comment is that we felt the top level, BBQ and wading pool were smaller than we expected and we didnt feel comfortable staying in the lower level room alone so we all stayed in main house. We really enjoyed our time at Casa Maravilla. Sayulita is truly magical.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great comments! You were great to work with too! And while we’re not literally built into a tree, we do have an amazing giant fig tree with a large palm growing through the trunk. It shades much of the house and property. Regarding the size of the rooftop deck, it is circular in form and is over 800 sq. ft. The pool is 4 feet deep and about 12 feet by 12 feet. Great for conversations, drinks, cooling off on hot days – and perfect for children. Regarding the lower level bedroom with its own entrance, it’s as safe as the upper level with lockable steel windows and doors. Our property is completely walled, security fenced, and gated. While we’ve never had a single incident on our property, we’ll be sure that our manager gives our renters a key to lock the entrance gate if one feels the need.

We were looking for a safe, laid back seaside village with a nice beach, some good food & no high rises. Sayulita exceeded our expectations. Part of what made our trip so absolutely perfect was our stay at Casa Maravilla. It's really not quite like anything else in town. The rooftop was perfect for late afternoon cocktails, or just a lazy nap. Bedrooms were spacious, private, and quiet. The house is nicely furnished, comfortable & relaxing. Enough different living areas for everyone to "do their own thing."
It's a very short walk into the center of town, either along the beach or on the road. There is always something to see. Whether you want to explore, hike, surf, swim, dine, or just hang out & read a book, this is a great spot to hang your hat. I highly recommend Casa Maravilla to all travelers bound for Sayulita. It's very well priced for such a charming house.

GREAT VACATION AT CASA MARAVILLA

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Casa Maravilla. Sayulita is a great town with a great beach, proximity to world class surf spots, excellent local fare, friendly residents, and a quaint town square. This is a small town that is easy to navigate and very walkable. The food and shopping are great, as well.
Casa Maravilla is a great example of Mexican organic architecture - a large cylindrical building. The house has a large open kitchen/dining/living area that is great for relaxing or entertaining. Decks are available for a coffee in the morning or a drink at night. The house is immaculately cared-for with modern appliances and fixtures. The bedrooms are large. The bathrooms are clean and modern.
The house has a roof top pool that was a perfect place for a dip after a day at the beach or walking in town. We had a great time hanging out there at night and in the day bed reading during the day.
The house is conveniently located in town and a block or so from the beach.
We have visited Mexico numerous times. We have stayed in every type of accommodation over the years - from hammocks to resorts. Casa Maravilla will appeal to the adventure seeker and the family that needs comfort and convenience.
