We stayed for a week and had such a great time! The property is pretty big with a BEAUTIFUL patio/garden area. We would make coffee every morning and just sit outside and watch all of the interesting birds & squirrels. Our favorite place was the upstairs open area where there is a little bed, table & hammock with a bookshelf. Most afternoons we were there, getting out of the sun, reading, eating papaya and looking at the ocean

Hans & Susanne have a wonderful casa on the hill overlooking the town, the jungle & the ocean. I had a wonderful, peaceful stay here with no issues sharing the kitchen. It is a large home with ample space to enjoy. 5-10 min walk to the beach or town but lovely and peaceful at night. Very nice use of space with lots of outdoor nooks to enjoy. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

“Loved the detail in the landscaping and all the views. Glad we had the room by the kitchen, it might have been harder being in the other room.”

A Secret Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

After plane rides and taxi cabs Mom got a huge high five from the whole family for finding a Sayulita home that embodies all the charm of Mexican architecture on a quiet hill overlooking the city. We found ourselves wanting to schedule time just to hang out at the house and enjoy all the quiet places to read and sunbath.

Although this home is a bit farther from the beach (10 min walk) it allowed us to see more of the local culture. We stayed for 10 days strolling into town past the small shop owners as they opened for business in the morning or closing for the evening. On day 6 we rented one of the many golf carts in town to explore a bit (about 55 dollars for 24 hours, they also have weekly rates). On the walk to town you also pass Blue Corn Mamas a local restaurant and Art center that supports the indigenous Indians (a must). You will also pass a language school on the walk which I will definitely book some lessons in on our next visit. Sayuilita can be loud in the evening with a very vibrant downtown so it your looking for a quite sleep I highly recommend not staying in the town center and enjoying the comforts of Casa De Mar Montana.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at Casa Mar y Montana for 5 weeks. We have stayed in many different places in Sayulita, but this was definitely our favorite. The studios are spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is very functional. The yard is beautiful, you can always find shade or sun and there is almost always an ocean breeze. The part we enjoyed the most was the view overlooking the town and watching the sunset. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to go back again soon!

We stayed for a week in Sayulita. Susanne and Hans home was perfect, it had everything we needed and having a washer and dryer was a life saver. The property was so beautiful and very relaxing! Sayulita is a very fun little town but it did take us a few days to get used to. It's very lively at night and with lots of music. We have a family so we were thinking maybe this isn't the right town for us, but once we decided to head down to see all the excitement...we had so much fun! Every night after that, we would walk down with the kids to get tacos a fresh made churros. They were delicious! Our kids enjoyed all the cute stray dogs and the mini street shows. They were dancing and even participating with one of the lady's hula hooping show in the town square! We were very sad to leave but made some wonderful memories. We will definitely be back someday. Thank you so much Susanne and Hans for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

casa mar y montana-good place to stay in Sayulita

  • 4 of 5

This is a very cozy little place with a beautiful yard. Everything you need for a comfortable stay while you are in Sayulita. The views are pretty awesome up on the hill, you can see the town, gringo hill and the ocean from the property. I really enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the birds, especially the eagles soaring out of sight. Overall a sweet casa that is affordable and clean. Thanks to Hans and Suzanne for providing a good experience in Sayulita.

Clean and delightful

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 year old and I spent a whole month at Casa Mar y Montana. We could not have asked for a better spot. It is a few steps from town with stunning views of Sayulita. The property was extremely clean, very secure and had a lot of chill spots. We felt like we were home the whole time we were there. The property manager, cleaning lady and owner were extremely friendly and helpful. As mentioned in other reviews yes there is a very steep hill to the house. We had fun with it, some days we went up and down just for an extra work out. Let me tell you our buns were a lot firmer when we left. I would not hesitate to book Casa Mar y Montana again and hopefully someday we will be able to make it back to Sayulita to do just that. If you are in any way still up in the air on this rental, just do it. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful rental in lovely town

  • 4 of 5

We love Sayulita. We'd visited the town before for a shorter period of time and this time we stayed a month!

The house and gardens are absolutely lovely and situated on a hill at the end of town near the bus stop. So, it's a few blocks walk to town, but easy - we did it at least twice a day with a three-year-old, who also walked the whole way (including back up the steep hill to the house!) You could rent a golf cart if you'd rather not deal with the hill - our neighbors had one.

One of the nicest factors for us was that the house was continually supplied with fresh drinking water. The housekeeper, in particular, but the gardener as well, were both very helpful in getting us water quickly a couple times when we either ran out or were on the verge of it. Something to keep in mind - neither of them speak very much english at all, which makes communicating needs and questions about the house challenging. My husband speaks enough Spanish that we worked through it, but I would have had trouble on my own.

We loved the house and highly recommend it - especially at the off season rate, it was a great price. We've been to Sayulita in both Feb and June/July now. The temperature wasn't much higher in the summer, but the humidity made it feel so much hotter - like, dripping sweat hotter. On the up side, if you were worried about the town feeling dead during the summer - it is just as bustling as when we were there in the winter. The beginning of July the schools let out in Mexico and the beaches were packed again then! That was actually a bit of a downside. We still had a great time.

Other things to keep in mind -

If you plan to utilize the outdoor sleeping area upstairs, ask for the mosquito netting - it gets pretty buggy at night.

We also ran into a few scorpions upstairs and on the stairs to the upstairs - they hide in the fallen petals, so don't walk barefoot through there unless you keep it swept.

There is no air conditioning, but beyond the ceiling fans in the bedrooms there is also a large extra fan in each bedroom. In our room we pointed the fan at the bed and made a sort of tent of the mosquito netting around the bed, with the fan on the inside of that - that way we had full force fan, but it didn't blow the mosquito netting off. No need to use the mosquito netting at all if you keep your window and door shut at night, but we sometimes wanted ours open when it was especially hot.

We would recommend this house and would stay again!
