Casa Colibri (Hummingbird) on Calle Naranjito is said to be one of the most photographed sights in Sayulita. It is a beautiful, spacious, custom-built casa situated 5 minutes from the heart of the village of Sayulita and the main beach, yet very private and quiet. Casa Colibri captures all the beauty and uniqueness Sayulita has to offer. You will enjoy a stunning view from each room, of the ocean, lush green mountains beyond, and surrounding jungle with beautiful hillside homes. The spacious 1000 sq ft casita has a private entrance and opens to a large patio overlooking the bay of Sayulita, providing indoor/outdoor living in a lush garden setting.
This two bedroom casita will sleep up to 5 people. It is very private with a separate walkway from the quiet cobblestone street below. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make your vacation easy and comfortable. The 1000 sq ft home surrounds a large terrace overlooking ocean and jungle views. The two spacious and airy bedrooms have views, comfy king-size beds, and air conditioning. They are situated at opposite ends of the casita, with the living room and kitchen in the center, to optimize privacy. One bedroom has handcrafted french doors opening to the terrace, the other has a sitting area with views of the jungle. One of the bedrooms can also be arranged with two twin beds if desired. Maid service is included. Enjoy tasteful Mexican decor with comfortable equipali furniture throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a propane bbq on the patio where you can relax with a margarita, grill your catch of the day, and watch the sunset.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped with walkways and terraces winding through an assortment of exotic, fragrant, flowering, tropical plants and trees. There is a almost always a refreshing ocean breeze blowing through the windows and across the patios.
An easy 5 minute scenic stroll down a cobblestone street will take you to the beach and village, where there are grocery stores and many good restaurants for every meal of the day, offering simple to gourmet, including American, Asian Fusion, Italian, French, and of course, delicious Mexican and seafood dishes. The shopping is awesome with unique jewelry, clothing, home décor, art galleries, and handmade items from all over Mexico. Spa treatments abound in several locations in town. And if you want some adventure during you stay there is surfing, fishing, horseback riding, ATVing, jungle hiking, and zip lining, all for which Sayulita is famous.
Nearby are many attractions for visitors. The quiet village of San Francisco (“San Pancho” to locals) is a six minute taxi ride to the north. It has a beautiful, wide and long beach with few people and a large lagoon with many shorebirds coming and going. There are several good restaurants there. You can also take a bus or cab from Sayulita to the Punta Mita peninsula, where you can catch a sailing, whale watching, or fishing trip out of the beautiful marina.
A stay at Casa Colibri encompasses all Sayulita has to offer at a great value!

Last year we quit our jobs and sold our home in San Diego to fulfill our dream of retirement in a Mexican seaside village.
We did our research, and decided Sayulita had all the qualities we were looking for. Authentic and quaint, yet lively and fun, a great surf break, stunning natural beauty, and a very friendly, safe community of locals and expats.
After quite a few house hunting trips, we narrowed down our search to the south end of Sayulita. We wanted an exceptional home for our guests and ourselves, easy walking distance to town and the beach, with ocean and jungle views. When we toured Casa Colibri, we knew this was home. It is truly a special place that provides all Sayulita has to offer, beautiful views, close to everything, and tasteful, casual, comfort.
Casa Colibri is located in a lush, colorful, garden setting overlooking Sayulita's beautiful bay. It is private and quiet, yet close to all the action at the beach or in town. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make life easy and comfortable.
