This Mexican-designed casa lies nestled in a quiet nook at the end of a gated lane. It has a majectic view of the Pacific Ocean. Casa OLayh offers guests an ideal location just minutes from a beautiful expanse of tropical sand and surf. A ten-minute stroll leads to the village centre with its many shops, cantinas and cafes.
The main floor of the three storey casa boasts a fully equipped kitchen complete with a six-burner gas stove and a breakfast bar. The living room adjoins the main floor terrace where guests can lounge in comfort and enjoy meals at the terrace dining table while basking in the evening sun as it sets over the ocean. The master bedroom, with a carved, king-size bed has a writing corner with the same beautiful ocean view. The modern ensuite bathroom includes a jacuzzi tub, modern shower and ample closet space.
The upper floor has a second large bedroom with a king-size bed that can be conveniently separated into two beds. The bedroom has a modern ensuite bathroom. The greater part of the upper floor, covered by a palapa roof, has a small kitchenette, a bar, a built-in couch and a large lounging space - the perfect lounging room for you and for guests. The bamboo blinds can be raised letting in the cooling ocean breeze and giving guests a fabulous view of the ocean and surrounding hills. The upper floor could be used as a private apartment if guests require privacy.
On the ground level is a fully-equipped laundry room and outdoor lounging patio. The well-maintained tropical garden with a seasonal creek features palms, bougainvilleas and a variety of other native plants.
Casa OLayh is the ideal vacation spot for an authentic Mexican experience with family or friends. The sun, the sand, the surf, the cuisine and the culture will keep bringing you back.
My husband and I live in a country home situated on the Assiniboine River Valley on the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border in Canada. We enjoy travel, meeting people and learning about world cultures. Our two adult children and their partners have also traveled extensively. We have traveled together as a family to India, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Mexico. Now, in semi-retirement, we have decided to purchase a home in Sayulita - a place where we could spend time together as a family or on our own.
We fell in love with the 'feel' of Sayulita. The intimate small-town atmosphere of the community is the perfect fit for us and our family. We are 'small-town' people who take much pleasure in the arts, sports and adventure. Sayulita and area offers all of that. The down-town market, the art galleries, the cafes and cantinas, the beach activities and the hiking possibilities excited us. The proximity to the Puerta Vallarta airport and the amenities of the city were also a draw for our family.
When we decided to look for a property there were two important prerequisites for us. One was the necessity of an ocean view. Perhaps this comes from being prairie folk who are accustomed to a 'big' view of the sky. The other was the privacy that Casa OLayh offers, with enough space to house six-eight people comfortably.
We think we have the perfect spot - tucked at the end of a quiet, gated lane with a wonderful ocean view and only a short stroll to downtown.
We were caught by the design of the casa and the Mexican 'feel' of the house from the colour of the walls to the Mexican tiled floors. The open concept of the main living area that spills over to the terrace to meld the interior with the exterior was what we were looking for.
The upper floor that could be a separate living space or just another storey in the house was just right for our family and we thought it would be 'just right' for other families too. The kitchenette allows the upper floor guests the opportunity for a private breakfast or dinner. The large palapa & lounge area is perfect for an afternoon or evening get-together.
