About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, 1 Half Bath, Sleeps 8

This hillside jungle retreat overlooks the north river valley with

panoramic views from the mountains down to the ocean. A comfortable five minute walk takes you to town or the beach. Casa Amanecer was designed and built by an artist and is a refreshing design of tropical living. As mild ocean breezes and warm temperatures are the norm year round this villa acclimates its visitors beautifully to the natural environment.The upstairs kitchen, dining, living area, and half bath is covered with a huge palapa allowing it to take advantage of the warm open air and wonderful ocean breezes. The two spacious downstairs bedrooms are enclosed with comfortable beds, secure storage and bright colors and share a full bath and palapa covered secure veranda. The separate casita sits above the pool area, overlooking the oasis from the hillside with a comfortable king bed, bathroom with shower. The casita reflects much of the designers inspiration with extensive mosaic tile.

Why Marcia Holt chose Nayarit

This property has a wonderful sense of privacy while still being very close to town. The lot is very large and has three structures. The landscaping is wonderful and makes you feel as though you are in a jungle paradise. The upstairs is open air which takes advantage of the breeze that comes up the river from the ocean, which is nice as the enclosed houses can get very hot and stuffy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family really enjoyed our 2 weeks in Sayulita at this rental property, 7 minutes from the beach or town center. No A/C, but as the rental is located on a hill above street level, every morning and evening we were greeted by a tropical breeze so the A/C was not missed. On the days when the breeze did not appear the modest swimming pool was more than enough compensation. The rental is in a residential area, giving it a pleasent and peaceful local perspective. Well maintained through out with many amenities (Wi-Fi, washing machine and dryer, coffe maker, 2 safe deposit boxes, all untensiles for cooking, etc...), the rental mangement was very responsive to any requests we made, even ferrying us and our luggage to and from the rental office to the property, both on arrival and departure. A unique outdoor living experience, will recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in Sayulita and would stay there again with the family if in the area.

Casa Amanacer was a pleasure to stay at. It embodies all the beauty of Mexico.

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Casa Amanacer was a wonderful experience. It is exactly as the owners described it complete with the sounds and sites of the surrounding village, especially enjoyed the neighboring roosters reminding us to look out at the beautiful sunrise seen from all the bedrooms. Its walking distance to town and the beach, but far enough away for some privacy too. The separate bedroom set up was perfect for our group of adults, families with very small children may find the distance uncomfortable. Absolutely the best part was the main upper palapa and outdoor kitchen, we spent most of our time here. This is a great place for those who enjoy true Mexican culture. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Rental was canceled

  • 2 of 5

While I would love to have stayed at this property, I was disappointed when the owner canceled one week before our visit. We booked six months in advance so we would have something solid for a reunion gathering, and something that was affordable for people coming from all different areas of the US. I understand that things come up, but canceling without making arrangements with another property for us to stay there is poor customer service. Marcia provided us the name of a person who could help us find another location, but the woman wasn't very helpful and with only a week before our trip couldn't provided us with anything without our price range. We got our refund from this property, but ended up having to spend three times as much money to stay at an equivalent property that we found ourselves after many hours of searching and negotiations. We also did not get a refund from the insurance we purchased on the property to protect us in case WE canceled. It was a very disappointing start to our trip.

Owner's Response: I was very sorry that I had to cancel this reservation. I have owned this property for over 10 years and this is the first time I have had to do so. We were chosen to be featured in an HGTV episode and felt that it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up. We weren't given much notice but as soon as I was notified I canceled this reservation. It was 10 days out and I referred her to a property manager I know in Sayulita. She manages many properties in Sayulita and I am so sorry that she was not able to help locate a property. I try very hard to do everything I can do to accommodate my guests with whatever they may need.

vacaciones en familia

  • 5 of 5

Casa maravillosa... perfecta para pasar vacaciones en familia, hacer de la comida una fiesta en la gran terraza y de los aperitivos en la alberca.

Lo unico negativo es la rampa de acceso a la casa, no está terminada y los carros dificilmente pueden subir sin raspar.

Wonderful house in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Amenecer and loved it. The house is beautiful and spacious. The caretakers were helpful and the location is special. The upper floor is naturally cool and surrounded by jungle with gorgeous views of the surroundings. The kids adored the pool and the adventurous feel of the place. It is a convenient walk into town. Highly recommend.
