Introducing the Barefoot House! We finished construction in 2010, and, we like to think, it's an excellent value for your Sayulita vacation. It has a lovely, quiet location atop Gringo Hill; just an 8 minute walk to the plaza and 2 more minutes to the beach. Sunsets are stunning and the views of 'Monkey Mountain' and the Sayulita jungle are simply gorgeous. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sleeping loft, it is perfect for a family or two couples. It can sleep 4-8.
Barefoot House boasts a large, salt water, solar heated pool with a shallow 'splash zone' for the kiddies. If you're not familiar with salt water pools, they are a luxurious alternative to traditional chlorine pools. They use low levels of salt to 'chlorinate' and maintain the PH of the pool. Without harsh chemicals the pool water leaves skin silky smooth and doesn't sting kiddie eyes.
The high quality teak and Sunbrella patio furniture is perfect for soaking up the rays or whiling away the lazy days under the shade of the pergola. The property is tastefully landscaped with tropical foliage and fruit trees including jasmine, gardenia, hibiscus, mango, banana, papaya, lime, coconut, lemon, kiwi, pomegranate, and mandarin. There is a propane barbeque perfect for grilling the day's catch. And, my favorite, is the outdoor shower. Showering under the night sky bright with stars, is simply dreamy.
The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living room and has a 6 burner gas stove, a full size fridge/freezer with ice maker, and even a dishwasher! (A rare treat in these parts.) There is a whole house water purification system allowing our guests to drink the water from any tap in the house. The dining table can seat up to six and the kitchen bar has seating for four more. There is a flat screen TV with Satellite (English programming), DVD player, as well as an XBOX game system with games. There is a portable BOSE sound system to use with your ipod or mp3 player. We have a delightful assortment of movies, books, games, and kids' toys.
The master bedroom has a king size bed with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and fabulous pillows. Two sets of hand crafted French doors open to the pool as well as a private veranda. The master bath has gorgeous Parota wood counter tops, dual sinks, and a custom rock shower with rain head.
The second bedroom has a queen size bed, as well as a sleeping loft with an additional queen bed. The sleeping loft is ideal for kids (or limber adults). The second bedroom has a private bath with a stunning rock shower and rain head. The two couches in the living room can double as twin beds (although one is shorter than a normal twin - again, perfect kid size). Both bedrooms and the living room have their own air conditioning units with remote control. Each bedroom has a safe that will fit your laptop.
Barefoot House in Sayulita is equipped with all varieties of beach gear available to our guests including beach towels, chairs, sand toys, and even a long board for the Sayulita surf. We hope that you'll be able to 'unplug' as much as possible while on vacation, but we do have Wi-Fi available to our guests. We also offer the use of our washer and dryer.
We're super excited to announce that the Barefoot House is on the move toward becoming Green! We recently added an extensive rooftop solar system that helps to offset our carbon 'barefoot' print.
Wherever you decide to stay, we hope that you enjoy Sayulita as much as we do.

We're the Stewart Family - Dave, Heather, Cole, Emerson, Eve and Soleil. We live on the Central Coast of California. We own a small business and we try to live a lifestyle that allows us to visit Sayulita as often as possible. In 2009 and 2010 we spent 6 months living in Sayulita. The kids went to school at the public schools in town, and we built the 'Barefoot House'. We had the time of our lives. We surfed and ate fish tacos to our hearts' content. We hope to live there again someday. But, in the meantime, we are offering our cozy casita as a vacation rental.
We bought our 'little piece of paradise' in March of 1998 when our oldest (now 13) was just a baby. We visited a few times after that and then got busy with life. You know how that goes. Four kids and 10 years later we came for a visit and remembered just how special Sayulita is. We made plans to return for a 'cultural exchange' and to build our little casita on the hill. We've just completed our six month stay in Sayulita and were lucky enough to spend the last two months in our newly finished casita, that we affectionately coined 'The Barefoot House'. You'll have to visit to find out how it got its name. Hint: You'll love the salt water pool.
We like to think our house is rather cozy. The beds are plush and beautiful with lots of pillows. Since we were here during the construction we were able to add a lot of personal touches that make the house homey. Also, since we built the house to accommodate our family it is equipped with comforts like a dishwasher, full size fridge with ice maker (heavenly), and a whole house drinking water system so the kids can brush their teeth with no worries. These are really nice features when traveling with kids. We also provide access to our washer and dryer for your convenience.
