Aticama House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Casa Angel was designed by Miguel Valverde, a well known Mexican Architect whose work has been featured in Houses of the Pacific Coast. It is so lovely and graceful with a fantastic setting! The expansive ocean view includes a long stretch rugged coastline, the palm-lined beach, as well as the lagoon where the fishermen of Sayulita moor their boats. On the land side, Casa Angel sits directly beside a wild and completely undeveloped jungle canyon. The ocean breezes are nearly constant, and you can fall to sleep to the gentle sound of waves breaking on the shore. At night, the lights of Sayulita glitter below. The sunsets are magnificent, and in every room are large wooden doors and windows, which fold open to create an airy indoor/outdoor lifestyle perfect for the tropics.

Surrounding Casa Angel is an extensive, flower-filled garden, and a lush level lawn. Beyond the lawn is a gracefully curved pool, not a dipping pool, but one that is large enough to swim laps. And it is all yours. Since there are no casitas or other units on the property, once you close the garden gate behind you, no one will enter except at your invitation. Lounge in the sunshine or take a night swim in the sparkling lighted pool.

Casa Angel features three totally separate, private bedrooms with adjoining baths. The upstairs Master Bedroom is ringed with a flower box filled with yellow, pink, and purple blooms. The Blue room has an outstanding water view. The downstairs Lilac bedroom opens directly onto the patio and pool, and not only has a gorgeous ocean view, but looks out as well into the wild jungle canyon. The house can sleep six people in style, and if needed, there are blow up mattresses.

The breathtaking natural surroundings, combined with an exceptional attention to detail, literally surround you with beauty. Ringing the floors of each of the round rooms, as well as in the pool, patio, and paths you will find delicate inlaid stone vines and flowers by talented artisan Lupe Ascencia. And from her place in the garden, an exquisite hand carved stone angel watches over the house.

Casa Angel offers luxury furninghings throughout. In the Verde Bedroom you will find fine hardwood furniture from Malaysia, the Azul bedroom has local Mexican furnishing and in the Lila Bedroom, a beautiful white four poster bed with a canopy. Curvy wrought iron outdoor chairs and a marble table allow you to eat outdoors in style, while chaise lounges and chairs imported from the United States make you comfortable around the pool. The kitchen counters and the patio are crafted of a beautiful mango colored local rock called Tekul. An elegant wicker sofa sectional and tribal rug grace the living room area, and the round dining table and chairs were custom made by an artisan who works in a small village outside Guadalajara.

Carmina our maid will clean every day except Sunday (unless this is not wanted.) Our local English and Spanish speaking house manager, Eric will be available to handle any problems or questions which arise. Air conditioning is available in all three bedrooms during the summer months, and is not needed at other times because of the almost constant ocean breezes. The walk down to the beach is only about five minutes, but because the house sits high on a hill, if you are disabled or out of shape for walking, you may wish to bring a car, which you can park in the palapa covered carport just beyond the garden gate. The house is located on a good cobblestone road. Town is a ten minute walk and the beach is a 5 minute walk.

Casa Angel is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 2 week stay at Casa Angel. We go down every January and have stayed in many houses over the years. This one was great. We specifically chose it because it was on the top of Nanzal hill, knowing the sunsets would be better and it would be quieter than the south side. We saw whales breaching all day long while we hung out poolside. The rooms were comfortable and clean, Carmina did a fantastic job as house keeper and chef! We not only used her culinary skills for dinner one night, but we had her make up ceviche and quacamole one day for our sailing trip. Fantastic! Eric was very attentive to us. We had a couple little issues that he got on right away and fixed. I honestly felt safer at Casa Angel than i do in my own home in California :) Would stay here again in a heartbeat. The open floor plan worked great for the 3 couples, giving us our own space when we needed it. The only thing i would change about the house is i'd put up some curtains in the bedrooms. Felt bad for the couple who stayed downstairs, as they had no privacy when people were outside. Other than that, it was perfect! The walk to town was totally doable from here too, although we had 2 golf carts which we used instead of walking most of the time. Thanks for an incredible stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Randee, thank you for you're kind review of Casa Angel. Great idea about the pink bedroom. I've been trying to figure that out and it's a challenge with the curved windows but I'll look into when I get down to Sayulita. Glad you enjoyed Sayulita!

Enjoyable stay at Casa Angel

  • 4 of 5

The home on the hill is exactly as profiled online. It is pretty and fairly well equipped with a beach umbrella, nice beach chairs (that double as a backpack) and boards. Our family of five stayed comfortably. The home is quite a distance from town and requires a steep walk uphill to return. I recommend renting a golf cart for your stay, however do not use Pacific Coast golf carts as the owner is extremely unresponsive and uncaring of the condition of the cart. The first one was returned because the tires were going flat, the second one would not charge (electric) when we returned the cart due to being unable to use it, we were charged for the entire next day. Eric, the house manager was very responsive when questions came up and really was knowledgable about Sayulita. Carmen the housekeeper, came by almost everyday. She is an excellent cook and I highly reccomend her chili rellanos! We did ask that the beds be changed on the 5th night, which was halfway through our stay, she made the beds without changing them anyway, therefore I took off the sheets and handed them to her. I do realize that water is precious in the area, however one change during a 10 day stay is not excessive. Also, I had to ask for clean towels halfway through our stay. The sunsets from this location were spectacular with a wraparound view, best view in the area. Since it is in the jungle, make sure to bring insect repellent for the many mosquitos. Also bring flashlights that you will need if you wish to walk to town at night. All in all we enjoyed Casa Angel and consider it a good value for a three bedroom home.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, thank you for your kind review. I'm sorry that you had a problem with the golf cart rental people, I know the carts must be charged throughout the entire night but I will speak with them about your concerns. Also, your sheets should have been changed without asking. I have already relayed this information to our manager. Carmina does not speak English ( that is why we ask that you go through Eric for any questions) and we do our best to conserve water while trying to provide the best service for our guests. I certainly hope you visit Sayulita again. Happy New Year.

Beautiful view, excellent place to rest, the only issue is some bugs and ants but is obvious if you are in jungle, house is in a sloping hill so better use SUV or Pick up truck.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, sorry you had an issue with ants. It is summer in the jungle in Mexico and we do try to keep counters and floors clean from the critters. Hope you come back to Sayulita!

Casa Angel - Late June

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival you are overwhelmed with the beauty of the property. After spending a week in Sayulita I believe the location of Casa Angel was second to none. Although the house is located on Nanzal Hill, it was a very short, enjoyable 5 minute stroll into town. Walking home after a few too many dos XX's and Don Julio's was another story....

Eric went above and beyond that expected and was always available to assist us with our issues. His local knowledge of the area was very helpful when deciding on our days activities.

During our stay the local town lost 50 percent of its power supply for a 24 hour period. We were informed that this is a common event on Sundays due to the inability of the local grid to cover the power requirements. Unfortunately this resulted in the loss of the water supply for this period (Luckily, Eric had sorted out the issue before we even noticed, and provided us with enough bottled water to get through the week).

Although the ad does say internet is provided, do not rely on this if you require a connection for work purposes. In order to send emails we had to take our laptops into town. Luckily every cafe provided free wifi on request.

We stayed at the property in late June and I feel this was an excellent time. The bulk of tourism had left meaning we virtually had the place to ourselves. Weather was brillient and I never had to wear anything more than board shorts and a singlet.

This beautiful property is a wonderful retreat away and our time spent was in Sayulita was highly enjoyable. I would definetly recommend this property to any families or groups looking for a holiday in this area. I would happily stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Luke, thank you for your kind review. We are constantly trying to improve any problems that we might have at Casa Angel. To answer a few of your concerns, we have been working on getting a stronger internet connection and hopefully someday we'll have the wire the entire way up Nanzal Hill. In the meantime, yes you are correct that it can be somewhat unreliable. The town has been working on the water issue but while waiting for that to be rectified, we have installed two large water storage tanks just for those times when the town is dry. Again, we appreciate your review and happy that you enjoyed Casa Angel, Eric and all that Sayulita has to offer. Hope you visit us again.

Casa Angel: Beautiful Home in Beautiful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Casa Angel pictures & write-up are exact! The home was well decorated with all the amenities you'd need. This home does have a level & fairly large lawn area by the pool which we enjoyed daily! The pool is a nice size, four of us were in it at once & we are all adults! I especially loved my morning swim by myself! The walk up the hill is steep, but excellent exercise. We even walked up to the top of the area hills to explore. We felt very safe in Sayulita. The security system in the home was easy to use & an added bonus. I feel Sayulita is the perfect town to stay in when in the Puerta Vallarta area, you get a better feel of Mexico & there is alot to do there. We had Carmina come every other day, she is a very sweet person. We had her do some laundry for us because Eric stated that the washer/dryer were finicky (I really felt bad about not doing my own & would have preferred to do my own). There is a DVD player so we brought one movie to watch for our movie night. We could not watch it though as we could not get our movie to play. Eric explained something about "piracy". There is many DVD movies in the home, both in English & Spanish. We enjoyed many meals in town. My son & dau-in-law enjoyed the Italian restaurant w/swings & a quiet restaurant on the ocean- both romantic. We had a personal chef come one night ( Sayulita-Life website is an excellent website to view before coming to Mexico to make some plans.) She was excellent, taught us while cooking & FUN!! I would also recommend horse-back riding. My daughter & I went on an hour ride near Litibu (about 15 miles south of Sayulita) through jungle, the little town & on the beach. We had 2 guides all to ourselves plus we met our driver in Sayulita, who drove us to the ranch & back & she had bottled water after our ride! Do the massage on the beach!! It is inexpensive & wonderful!! Thanks to Sally for getting back to me via e-mail before our trip & Eric, who made suggestions & answered our questions while in Sayulita & Carmina for taking care of Casa Angel & our laundry while we were in Mexico! Thanks for getting out the large airbed for my daughter to use as the queen bed wouldn't work for my 19 year old dau & 23 year old son to use. My only suggestion would be for a set of twin beds vs queen in one of the smaller bedrooms. Thank-you all so much!!

Sayulita Treat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful Casa Angel for nine nights and had a fabulous time. The villa is located in the north end of town which seems to be the quieter side. Casa Angel is still only a 5 minute walk down hill to the beach and only 10 minutes to town. Really. And the walk back UP the hill is really not so bad but in a pinch, you can go to the taxi stand in town, pay 50 pesos (less than $5) to get home. Very easy. And being up high means you get the BEST view!

We rented an electric golf cart that was SO MUCH FUN! We went buzzing all over town and up and down all the hills discovering wonderful hidden areas.

While staying here we were convinced that staying in town would be way too noisy. We could hear the music from town almost every night and one night the party went on until 3:00 in the morning! But part of the fun of this party were the fireworks over the city.

Sayulita is a unique and wonderful town. Everyone is friendly and happy and helpful. Everyone is having a good time. Great food, too. Bring CASH. Very few restaurants or shops use credit cards. And ask around for the safest ATMs... there are no banks in town.

Don't miss the mercado on Friday. Simply the best!

Casa Angel had all the amenities and space to make our stay memorable. Good water pressure, purified water, large refrigerator, pool, beautiful surroundings, alarm system, safe, etc. We will be back to Sayulita!
