About Julie S
Doug owns and operates an electrical contracting business and Julie is a registered nurse working in OB services. We live in Santa Barbara, California, have 3 kids and a 7 year old grandson and a 4 year old granddaughter!! We love to work in the garden, hike in the mountains, cook, travel, spend time with our families and relax when we can! We love Mexico and have traveled to many different areas over the years. We especially like exploring new places and brushing up on our Spanish!
Julie S purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Julie S chose Sayulita
We first visited Sayulita in 2003 and found what has become our second home. We immediately fell in love with the whole laid back vibe and feeling of family the town had to offer. We had talked for many years about living out of the US and finally found our spot. We had a 12 year old at the time and we really appreciated the family friendliness of Sayulita. We looked at many homes for sale during that time but in the end decided to purchase our lot, which has an incredible view, and create our own space. With the help of a talented architect/builder and Doug's many years in the contracting business we spent a year and a half building Ventana and enjoyed the adventure immensely.
What makes this Villa unique
Our home sits just up from the beach road so it is an easy walk down to the beach but because it sits up above the road we get wonderful breezes and incredible views. Our neighborhood on the north end is perfect for us. It is close enough to walk to town but far enough away from all the noise of the cars and late night bars. Some days we never leave the house! This year (2013) we added a beautiful fourth bedroom on the top floor with a spectacular view of the entire bay!

The Perfect Place
My girl friends and I rented Ventana al Mar for nine days. It was the perfect place for us. Everyone had their own bedroom and attached bathroom. The views from every part of the house were incredible. There always seemed to be a nice breeze, and the pool was good for a dip if you got too hot. Being on the north side of town was a bonus - close enough to walk to town but far enough away to be quiet. You can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Maria, the housekeeper, was a real gem. Although we didn't have the best Spanish, we tried our best to communicate with her and got along quite well. Pancho, the gardener, was also a great guy. Arely cooked dinner for us the first night we were there, and it was delicious. There are many good restaurants in town also. Be sure to stop at the big grocery store on the way in from the airport. Julie, the owner, was always prompt in her responses to our questions. The house has a water filter, so there was no need to worry about stomach problems. We also didn't see any bugs the whole time we were there. There is a beautiful beach really close to the house - great for reading and relaxing. But you can't swim there. Our group has traveled many places together, and this house was one of our favorite choices. You'll love it!!
Secluded, but not too far from the town and restaurants, perfect for the group or family that wants a little privacy with amazing views, close access to a beach that is QUIET and beautiful!! You can hear the waves from every room of the house.. Each bedroom has a separate bathroom, the views from the outdoor showers are incredible. There is a lot of privacy throughout the house, so it makes it very easy to travel with a group to this place. What was very cool is that there is a lot of outdoor space throughout the main living areas - but you still get a beautiful breeze through the place with a large amount of fans that circulate the air so its always comfortable, and you feel connected with the jungle. The staff were amazing, the place is immaculate, very well kept and extremely clean. I highly recommend this place!!
Our stay at Ventana was so so outstanding. Anytime you book on line without ever viewing you take a chance and a risk that it wont be all that is advertised to be, Ventana exceeded all of our expectations, we were 4 couples (8 guests). From the moment we opened the beautiful entrance doors we knew we found a slice of tropical heaven. The property is immaculately maintained daily, lush gardens and clean clean premises. Each room was magazine perfect with incredible views, privacy and bathrooms attached to each bedroom which was an awesome feature that we didn't even think about when we booked, you could unpack and stay unpacked as the space was yours inclusively. The home was designed so well, we enjoyed sitting in the many open areas, watching the ocean, drinking morning coffee, having dinner, watching sunsets and just truly enjoying our vacation as a group of friends. The pool is awesome, very clean and a great temperature, we used the poolside grill many times, it was immaculately clean. The staff, pancho and Maria was there daily and we fell in love with both, they work hard and do an amazing job. Everything we needed was at ventana our entire group had zero complaints. We chose to rent 2 golf carts as the house is up a step hill, however, for the first couple days we just walked, it was good exercise and we were only about 10-15 mins to the heart of sayulita. After spending 2 weeks in the area north sayalita was DEFINATELY the better spot to be, It's quiet but close enough to anything you want and the area seems nicer. The owner had recommended a driver to collect us from the airport and the pricing was awesome, with a pit stop to mega for a shop on the way. We actually used the drivers services for the remainder of our trip and he was easy to get short notice and had decent English. He moved us from ventana to our second house, took us to rincon guyabitos for a day trip and returned us the PV airport at the end of our stay. I highly recommend ventana and can't wait to return next year!
Perfect Accommodations for family Christmas Vacation
My family and I stayed at Ventana al Mar for the Christmas holiday and absolutely loved this property! There were 10 of us from 10 months old to 65 years young and a wonderful time was had by all. There were 3 couples, two little ones, and two 'tweenagers' and we all had our own separate spaces (levels of the house, even with everyone having their own private outdoor sitting areas) so we were very comfortably spread out. Each room has its own safe and a/c which was nice. The pool was wonderful, common areas were super comfortable, and the views and openness of the house were just stunning. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff here - Arely prepared a couple of OUTSTANDING meals for us, the daily maid service was really nice and the grounds and property were kept up so nicely. We've been to Sayulita a few times before and this is definitely our favorite property. The location is great but definitely rent a golf cart to make trips to the center super quick. We love so many restaurants here - Calypso, Sayulita Cafe, La Catrina, Aalyeah's Nachos, literally any taco stand. All so yummy. But was also really nice to eat a home a few times with such a large group during the busy holidays. Highly recommend Ventana al Mar and the staff here - you won't be disappointed!
Perfection! Our own private oasis.
Our family stayed at Ventana Al Mar and had basically a dream vacation. We knew the minute we opened the doors to the house that it was going to be AMAZING! It felt almost like we were entering another world. The pictures you have don't do it justice. The house was so welcoming and what a view.
Your kitchen is so well stocked with very nice pots, pans, dishes, etc. We were surprised to find so many extras we rarely find in houses. For the family, there were all of the games to play and great books to read. The beach chairs and umbrellas made going to the beach so relaxing.
The area by the pool - with BBQ and fridge - were perfect compliments. We grilled fresh fish and has margaritas and beers by the pool on more than one occasion.
It was perfect for kids and adults alike. You guys have thought of everything. We couldn't have been happier.
We will be back!
Beautiful views, beautiful home, beautiful people!
This was my second stay at Ventana al Mar...first time since the addition of the fourth bedroom. We stayed for two weeks. Wow; what a view! Even the ceiling of the upstairs bedroom is gorgeous; I hardly wanted to get out of bed....but then sitting in a lounge chair on the deck drinking coffee was pretty fabulous too. This home is so beautiful!
Doug and Julie have thought of everything. The staff are lovely...Maria and Pancho checked on our needs daily. The air conditioning went out in the casita one day and Arely had someone there to fix it promptly. Every bedroom has an attached bathroom with an outdoor private shower. The pool area has it's own refrigerator to keep our beer cold and a grill to cook up the fish we collected from the morning market. The indoor kitchen has all the conveniences of home; great cookware and beautiful dishes.
We enjoyed the privacy offered in this home as well as the amazing views! It's a hot walk into town in the summer so we rented a golf cart to make those trips easier. Sayulita is a small town, perfect for a relaxing vacation. Just a short walk down to the beach with backpack chairs available at the house.
We will definitely be back!!
Sayulita has something for everyone! you can do as much or as little as you like! There are fantastic beaches, jungle walks, birding, surfing, SUP, fishing, horseback riding, Zip line, golf, incredible restaurants, galleries, shopping, yoga and spa services. Or just relax at Ventana's private pool or on the beach with a good book!
