When you walk through the front door of Villa Yerbabuena you will be awe-struck by the breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean and Sayulita Bay. The world seems to lie at your feet when you take it all in. Gazing at the ocean, feeling the breeze, listening to the sounds of nature you realize, you have arrived and your vacation has begun.
Bienvenidos a Villa Yerbabuena, the newest luxury villa in the exclusive Pedregroso neighborhood on the quiet north side of Sayulita. Completed in the summer of 2012 it was designed for families or a group of friends who want to find a private vacation retreat, re-unite, celebrate, or all of the above in an environment with sweeping ocean views, all the modern-day comforts, and where easy-going goes hand in hand with style. Unwind, relax, and play at Villa Yerbabuena, a striking Spanish Colonial style home, only steps away from the most private and pristine end of Sayulita’s beautiful beach.
The villa is located in an area of private homes across the street from the ocean and within walking distance to the lively center of town.

Three generations of our family (6 adults and three kids under 8) spent Christmas week at Villa Yerbabuena. I honestly don't know where to start -- it was a truly perfect vacation. The house itself is even better in person (and that's saying a lot since those photos are beautiful). The staff is beyond conscientious. Maru, the property manager, goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. She and the homeowners have gone to great lengths to see to their guests' comfort...there was even a pitcher of water cooling in the fridge and beer steins in the freezer when we arrived! Wish we could give Villa Yerbabuena more than 5 stars. It was HEAVEN.
Travelling to Sayulita to attend a family wedding with a large group gave us a unique opportunity to view/visit several of the villas in Sayulita. We were very happy to stay at Villa Yerbabuena and in comparison to the other homes we visited, this villa is by far the best one we saw. The home is beautiful! Well appointed with everything you could ever need. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable. Close enough to the ocean for that wonderful, peaceful sound, yet far enough away from the traffic and noise of the town. A short walk to town, and the beach, yet quiet and peaceful. Modern appliances,great ground level pool with privacy. The upper balcony became our morning hideaway and evenings in the infinity pool with a glass of wine to enjoy the clear, spectacular sunsets and view of the entire harbour and beach was priceless! The staff are attentive, they cleaned well and were intuitive, providing all that we needed. For two weeks we considered Villa Yerbabuena our home, and are envious of the Buchanans and their slice of heaven. The owners were very easy to deal with, their rental pricing is very affordable, particularly when we compared this home with others, and once we got there we were extremely pleased. A member of our group had recent hip surgery and this home has 'regular' stairs versus the winding stairs in some of the homes. Because the town is built on many hills, most homes have stairs and are multiple levels, however the stairs in this home are manageable and safe. We had a great time in Sayulita. Safe, great beach (closer to town is best), and the local bars and restaurants were excellent. We rented a golf cart and we're glad we did. The hills are definitely a work out, but the golf cart, rented from Gabe at Pacific Coast golf carts is advised. Highly recommend this property and would definitely return. Fantastic home, clean and comfortable and large property with beautiful landscaping. The half basketball court was a huge bonus! Thank you Iris for a memorable vacation!
Wow, thank you Iris for sharing your piece of paradise with our family! We had the most amazing time and one week was certainly not enough! This beautiful home offers all the comforts one desires with the most spectacular views from every floor. We had 2 families sharing the house and there was more than enough space for everyone. The pools were simply amazing and the basketball court was a nice treat for the boys! I really can't say enough about this amazing home...the location to the beach and town was perfect...not too close, and not too far. Maru was a gem and even hooked us up with a local cook who prepared several delicious dinners! We hope to return again soon!
This home was perfect for our family vacation 6 Adults, 2 Small Children. It was easy to reserve from start to finish, Iris was great. The home was beautiful and clean. Well equipped kitchen. The views and sounds of the ocean from every window. Nice walk to beach and into town. The hill getting to the house is quite steep, but we managed to push our double stroller up and down several times a day. ( Its steep but quick!) Loved the access to the trail to get to a private beach. We had another home rented for the second half of our stay after most of our family members left and we were lucky to be able to come back here for a few days after we had issues at the other rental home! We have rented several homes in Sayulita over the past 10 years and this is the first one that we will be returning to! Also housekeeper that came every other day was great!!
We just returned from our first trip to Sayulita and had the luxury of staying at Villa Yerbabuena. The house was perfect for our family of 6 - 2 adults and 4 grown children.
We loved the views from everywhere - seeing and hearing the ocean from almost every room set the mood for a wonderful vacation. The house is a really short walk to the beach, we looked at other houses on VRBO that were further up the hill and I was glad to be where we were because the hill is STEEP! It is also a nice little walk into the town - very safe and well lit at night. We rented a golf cart for a couple of days and that was fun to have to explore more of the town than we could on our feet. The house has two pools - the dipping pool was so refreshing and great to sit in while sipping a margarita and watching the sunset. The bigger pool in the back yard had awesome lounge floats and I spent many hours reading my book and floating around. The kitchen was well equipped with all we needed to cook and bbq. Iris, the owner, is very easy to get along with and made the reservation process seamless. Her house manager, Maru, was always readily available for anything we needed at the house and both of them gave us some awesome suggestions for fun activities and places to eat. Do not miss the Ally Cat sailing trip - it was probably the highlight of our vacation - a beautiful catamaran ride out to the Marietas Islands (we saw whales, got to do a little snorkeling into a cave, paddle boards, kayaks, unlimited drinks, great food and friendly, fun tour guides)
We are already planning our return trip to Sayulita - it is a beautiful little Mexican town, full of fun and very friendly people!!!
We stayed here when we were visiting from NYC for a friends' wedding. The house was newly renovated, extremely clean and done in a very modern Mexican feel. The house is huge with lots of open space, two pools, amazing kitchen, purified water in all faucets (very helpful!) and gorgeous views of the ocean and area. It's close to the beach and town. The owner was VERY lovely in getting all the information we needed, getting deposit back and setting us up with on-site staff for getting in/out, any questions plus there was a daily cleaning! Impeccable place that felt very authentic, so comfortable and house decorated very simply but nicely! No complaints. We had a terrific stay and hope to come back and stay again!!!
The town of Sayulita is a charming fishing village, about a 35-minute drive away on Highway 200 through a lush mountain rainforest north from Puerto Vallarta. Low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand in this picturesque village. On the palm-tree lined beach you find lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for rent, beach cafés and restaurants, surf schools, and local fisherman who will take you fishing or bring you to pristine snorkeling areas. The ocean is great for splashing, swimming, and offers first-class surfing. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine such as Italian, French, Chinese, and Argentinean. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, mountain biking, kayaking, zip line adventures, horseback riding, visits to neighboring colonial towns and ancient pre-Columbian petroglyphs. In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening. Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.
