Casa Maravilla - loosely translated as 'Wonderful House'. And it is. It's a circular design with surprises at every view and yet very tranquil. This private haven has great trees, garden, and outdoor spaces. Perfect for bird-watching. There are three bedrooms - two up and one down w/separate entrance. Two full baths, two half baths. Well-equipped kitchen next to living and two dining areas. 2nd Floor terrace with hammock. Additional dining and living with a small pool under a giant rooftop palapa. The views are terrific - ocean, sunsets, jungle - a perfect location in the quiet north side of town - and just a block and a half from the beach and a 10 minute walk from the charming village of Sayulita.
'We came to Sayulita for a wedding and were the envy of all our friends once they saw our amazing accommodations. This place is wonderful.' Tim – Winnepeg, Canada
'We loved the house and location. Perfect really. Love the curvy design - pleasant breezes in every room. What wonderful architecture. And loved the mornings on the roof deck watching all the birds. Such a special home.” Ginny - San Mateo, CA
The first floor is a large ground level air conditioned bedroom (a king bed that may be converted for use as two twins). Also on this level is a utility area, and half bath, with outdoor shower. This ground floor area has a separate entrance from the main house. All sheets, towels, etc. throughout Casa Maravilla are high grade cotton and very comfortable. Excellent pillows as well, and plenty of them.
The next level has two large air-conditioned bedrooms and one bathroom - great shower - no tub. One bedroom has a full-size bed and the somewhat larger one has a king that can be converted to make two twins. Both bedrooms have generous work spaces for writing your next novel, etc. There is an additional twin blow up beds available and a portacrib and a porta crib for a little one.
The next level up is the living/dining/kitchen area. There is dining for 10 at the two tables, a well appointed kitchen, two couches and a nice full bathroom (no tub). Also on this level are outdoor spaces with a view of the ocean over the coconut palms. The house design is pretty amazing - it's shady, cool, and breezy - and ceiling fans are everywhere, in addition to the air conditioned bedrooms.
On up the stairs to the rooftop floor one will find additional dining, a bar with a small fridge, a large palapa sitting area, a bath w/shower, and a small “dipping” pool. The pool’s about chest high - 12’ or so in diameter - and great for relaxing, cooling off, and whatever. The views on this level are pretty terrific - jungle, ocean, lovely neighborhood, etc. For the adventurous, the comfy, long banca (couch) sleeps two under the stars (covered by a palapa in case of showers.)
'Que Bonita! Our first trip to Sayulita won’t be our last and I know where we’ll be staying from now on – Casa Maravilla has it all: pool, shade, quiet, hidden in the trees, great views and a wonderful rooftop palapa.' Pat, Sarah, and Little Liana. Boise Idaho.
'What a fabulous vacation. Thank you for opening your house to us. We had many wonderful meals in the kitchen, and many lazy afternoons by the pool. It was exciting to watch our little girl learn to swim in the pool…After a night out on the town it was so wonderful to come back to your comfortable home.' Mel, Jair, and Nova - British Columbia Canada
'Great vacation spot! What a beautiful house! Michael, you have a jewel here! We have seen such a variety of wildlife, and such a tranquil spot with great food. This place definitely rates a return visit. Thanks for a memory.' Pete and Sue – CA
