Overview

About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom private casita w full kitchen, large terrace, gorgeous views

Casa Colibri in Sayulita, Nayarit Mexico is a beautiful, spacious, custom-built villa, a with separate spacious 2 bedroom casita. It is 5 minutes walking distance from the heart of the village and the main beach, yet very private and quiet. Casa Colibri captures all the beauty and uniqueness Sayulita has to offer. You will enjoy gorgeous, wave crashing views of the ocean from the casita and pool, lush green mountains beyond, and the surrounding jungle with beautiful hillside homes. Buena Vista, our 2 bedroom casita, has its own private entrance, large terrace with dining table for 6 and chaise lounge chairs, overlooking the bay of Sayulita, the jungle, and our beautifully landscaped gardens, providing indoor/outdoor living in a lush garden setting.

The casita is very private with a separate walkway from a cobblestone street located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The décor is tasteful and authentic and the casita offers all the amenities to make your vacation easy and comfortable. The 1000 sq ft home surrounds a large terrace overlooking ocean, beach, and jungle views. The two spacious and airy bedrooms have views, comfy king-size beds w pillow top mattresses, 100% cotton linens, and air conditioning. They are situated at opposite ends of the casita, with the living room and kitchen in the center, to optimize privacy. Each bedroom has its own large bathroom. One bedroom has handcrafted french doors opening to the terrace, the other has a sitting area with views of the jungle. One of the bedrooms can also be arranged with two twin beds if desired. We have a housekeeper on site and available 6 days a week. Enjoy tasteful decor collected from our travels in Mexico, colorful tile and art, and comfortable furnishings throughout. The open concept living room/kitchen has French doors to a spacious terrace with a palapa shaded dining table for six and chaise lounge chairs. The pool is just steps from the terrace. The kitchen has a center island w seating and is fully equipped with cookware, appliances, and everything else you need to prepare a fabulous meal. There is a propane bbq on the terrace where you can relax with a margarita, grill your catch of the day, and watch the sunset.

The grounds of Casa Colibri are beautifully landscaped with walkways and terraces winding through an assortment of exotic, fragrant, flowering, tropical plants and trees. We are under a jungle canopy and enjoy a wide variety of exotic birds, iguanas, and butterflies. Enjoy refreshing ocean breezes blowing through the windows and across the patios.

Casa Colibri is situated on a quiet and charming cobblestoned street in a safe residential neighborhood. Our street, which is under a jungle canopy, welcomes visitors with birds chirping, iguanas resting in the trees, and neighbors walking their dogs. It is friendly and inviting. Beautiful flowers and tropical foliage abound. We are just south of town and an easy 5 minute walk to the central plaza and all the shops and restaurants, the main beach and surf break. We are also close to a stunning jungle trail that winds out to Playa los Muertos, a quieter, more remote swimming beach. It is truly an ideal location. Private and quiet yet close to all the action. Our property is walled and gated, and offers a secure, peaceful spot to retreat at the end of your day.

An easy 5 minute scenic stroll down our cobblestone street will take you to the beach and village, where there are awesome restaurants offering simple to gourmet, including American, Asian Fusion, Italian, French, and of course, delicious Mexican and seafood dishes. The shopping in town is fun with unique jewelry, clothing, home décor, art galleries, and handmade items from all over Mexico. Spa treatments abound in several locations in town. And if you want some adventure during you stay there is surfing, fishing, horseback riding, ATVing, jungle hiking, and zip lining, all for which Sayulita is famous.

A stay at Casa Colibri encompasses all Sayulita has to offer at a great value!

About Joan and Dave

In 2013 we quit our jobs and sold our home in San Diego to fulfill our dream of retirement in a Mexican seaside village.

We did our research, and decided Sayulita had all the qualities we were looking for. Authentic and quaint, yet lively and fun, a great surf break, stunning natural beauty, and a very friendly, safe community of locals and expats.

Joan and Dave purchased this villa in 2013

Why Joan and Dave chose Nayarit

After quite a few house hunting trips, we narrowed down our search to the south end of Sayulita. We wanted an exceptional home for our guests and ourselves, easy walking distance to town and the beach, with ocean and jungle views. When we toured Casa Colibri, we knew this was home. It is truly a special place that provides all Sayulita has to offer, beautiful views, easy access to town and the beaches, and tasteful, casual comfort.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Colibri is located in a lush, colorful, garden setting overlooking Sayulita's beautiful bay. It is on a cobblestone street in a neighborhood that is private and quiet, yet close to all the action at the beach or in town. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make your vacation an exceptional one.

Happiness in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start, except to say that my husband and I spent a week in Sayulita last Christmas, and I believe we found the very last available accommodation in all of Sayulita. This year I got on it early, and as soon as I found Joan and Dave's property, I was hooked. We stayed at their newly finished Tres Palmas, and it was absolute perfection. Every detail was perfect and carefully considered. A great and very comfortable bed, a fabulous and very functional kitchen, a lovely bathroom with lots of hot water, and best of all, filtered water on demand. The pool was wonderful for a cool and refreshing dip, and the views overlooking the ocean were blissful. Joan and Dave are very considerate and kind hosts, and went out of their way to offer interesting suggestions for places to check out, hidden beaches, cool places to eat. They were great fun and we were so happy with our 2 weeks there. Needless to say, it was rather hard to leave! I would highly recommend staying at Casa Colibri, and this is THE place to stay in Sayulita. Thanks Joan and Dave for making it as fabulous as it was!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying in Buena Vista and the new casita, Tres Palmas. Just a short jaunt to the beach and into town, it is perfectly located. The views are spectacular, pool wonderfully refreshing and the casitas are comfortable and exquisitely decorated. Joan and Dave are such great hosts. Cannot say enough about the whole Casa Colibri experience! Thank you for having us!

Beautiful, peaceful, and such lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We spent our two-week honeymoon at Casa Calibri in December 2015. We've stayed at vacation rentals in the past, but this was our first owner-on-site experience. We could not believe how wonderful it was staying at Joan and Dave's beautiful casita. Accommodations were great, Joan and Dave made us feel like old friends, they really made the stay! The location is perfect, close to the beach and town, an all around great trip for us. We're ready to book our next stay for December, to celebrate our first anniversary at Casa Calibri. Thank you Joan and Dave

Wow! Ideal location, beautiful property, exceptional hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This is only time we rented a VRBO where the property and location proved to be more spectacular than the photos on the website. We awoke in our super comfortable beds to the soothing sounds of the jungle and the ocean. The owners are like the local ambassadors of Sayulita and treated us like VIPs; arranging pickup from the airport (they greet you with chilled beverages; beer, water, soda), golf cart rentals, location of the safest ATMs in town, and reservations for any activities we were interested in. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and the bedrooms are situated for total privacy, each with their own bathrooms, with the kitchen/sitting area in between. Joan is obviously a talented interior designer as evidenced by the internal décor perfectly suited to emphasize the Sayulita atmosphere and easy to keep neat and clean. The doors open to the lanai which overlooks the ocean. You are surrounded by lush landscaping and exotic birds. The casitas are very separated from each other for privacy, but you can reach out to the owners easily for any needs. If you are worried about safety for your valuables (which we were not based on our experience), the owners provide safes in the casitas. Free Wi-Fi is also very convenient, and the owners have all sorts of beach toys available. You can walk to town or jungle hikes easily, but I have to say the electric golf cart rental was so fun to zip around in. The property and location were 5 star exceptional, but having the owners insight and assistance made this a 5+ star accommodation.

Lovely place to stay, and equally wonderful owners who can make you feel so welcome.

I don't travel much, and this was my first trip to Mexico, so for me the trip to Sayulita would have been way more of a challenge had it not been for Joan and Dave's kindness and thoughtful suggestions.

Muchas Gracias Joan and Dave!!

P.S. Hey Dave -- I bought the book....
