About the property

House, 3 A/C Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Casa Vista Alegre sits majestically on 'Gringo Hill' overlooking the quaint town plaza of Sayulita. When this Non-Smoking house was first renovated in 2003, deliberate care was taken to maintain the history, authenticity and special feeling of the 'old style'; this is not a 'modern' house, but a very comfortable house, none the less. Known to most as 'the house with many doors,' Casa Vista Alegre is a home of brick, large timbers, and eight sets of stunning wooden/iron double doors. Sitting on the first rise above the quaint town of Sayulita, there is one short hill to navigate up from the town plaza, but the views make it totally worth the short "climb"!

The hand-crafted doors open onto an expansive wrap-around veranda, which overlooks the village, the beautiful bay of Sayulita, and the endless Pacific Ocean. Watching the surfers’ work their magic from your own private patio is a bonus!

The main floor of the home consists of Suite Principal, Suite el Medio, a full kitchen, dining area and airy living room. As of June 2016, the bedrooms ARE air conditioned with individual units to allow for perfect sleeping conditions. The kitchen and living areas are cooled by the fabulous ocean breezes thru the secure locking iron screened doors.

Suite Principal has a private entrance, private bath w/shower, kitchenette, satellite TV, air conditioning and luxurious king-size bed. (see photo) Enjoy the view of the crashing surf as you bathe in the open air shower!

Suite el Medio has a queen-size bed and individually controlled a/c, with an adjoining private bath complete with HUGE tub and dual showerheads. The bedroom offers a private entrance from the veranda, although it can also be accessed from the main living area.

The 500 square foot living room, with full kitchen and flat screen TV with satellite channels and NETFLIX capabilities, provides a spacious and relaxing gathering area. (see photo of this room).

Suite Abajo is accessed right inside the property gate, just a few steps up from a quiet residential street. An air conditioned suite with private open air bath, kitchenette, tiled floors, beds for four plus a queen size sofa sleeper, gives this room both quantity AND quality! Recently upgraded with beautiful tile work in both the bath and kitchenette.

Casa Vista Alegre is perfect for large groups who want to be together, but also want to maintain some privacy.

Although just 3 blocks from the beach, two private swimming pools provide the utmost enjoyment on the hot and sunny Mexican days as an alternative to the ocean.

Complete with a large architecturally designed infinity swimming pool with expansive pool deck this amazing tiled pool has built-in lounge chairs and perimeter seating. If you prefer a smaller pool with a bit of shade, there is a beautiful 'plunge' pool a level up, right off the main floor kitchen and living room.

Beautiful Mexican tile accents the main kitchen and baths, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The large living area, including full kitchen and veranda, affords plenty of space for families and extra sleeping room if needed. Although the living areas are not air conditioned, the fabulous ocean breezes keep it cool and comfortable during most of the year.

At Casa Vista Alegre the possibilities for family, fun, adventure, romance, and relaxation are endless!


Our property manager and grounds/pool gentleman are happy to assist with property issues...but please remember they are not available 24/7. Although willing, they work long hours and are not available time-wise to be a personal guide or concierge for extra requests. If you'd LIKE a "personal concierge" to make your activity arrangements, watch your kids, plan a meal, provide a cook, secure a golf cart rental, buy a computer mouse, suggest medical care etc...I have an excellent recommendation of a local that will be that person for you and on-call 24/7 during your stay. She is amazing and well worth the cost for those that need the extra attention while in Mexico.

PLEASE DO KEEP IN MIND, HOWEVER...this is a RURAL area of Mexico. And although rich in tourism, it has some very poor and desperate people. PLEASE always lock the casa when not there, and at night. PLEASE use the safe for valuables. PLEASE do not leave enticing valuables in plain site or outside, making yourselves and the casa a target for petty theft. Put computers, phones, cameras and of course a safe place and out of view.

ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER (disclaimer), that in rural Mexico and Sayulita in particular...the power occasionally goes out (or a breaker blows in the casa)....the internet occasionally goes out...the town's water occasionally goes out...the satellite TV occasionally goes out. At Casa Vista Alegre, we do our best to keep everything up and running, but sometimes we have to go with the Mexican flow and be patience. Please know that we will do everything we can to keep your services running smoothly, but sometimes those things are out of our control. That's when you head to the beach...and just grab a margarita and RELAX! If the small possibility of these things happening is upsetting or unnerving, then we are probably not the casa or town for you.

You will not find a better house in Sayulita!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned (reluctantly) from our trip to Sayulita and our stay at Casa Alegre. We traveled with two families of four. It was PERFECT for us.

LeAnne's description hardly does the house and location justice. The house and amenities are really wonderful.

The pools are both amazing, although we consigned the kids to the lower (infinity) pool while we cocktailed and read and soaked at the upper pool.

Just down the steps you are immediately in town with all the locals. The absolute best chicken you'll ever eat is less than a block away from your door.

The amazing beach is so close we had no problem letting our elementary school age kids head down together without us.

Sayulita has a great local feel without being overrun by us gringos. So safe, so beautiful.

We will absolutely return to this house next time we come to Sayulita.

LeAnne, Thank you so much! You can use me as a reference anytime!

Excellent location with great view while still just above the center of town & close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The location of and views from the house are excellent. It is only a block or so above the zocalo and two more short blocks from the beach (5 min walk); yet it is high enough to have a great view over town and up the coast and to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of town. The pool next to the house is a smaller pool meant for cooling off on hotter days. The big pool is down one and a half levels and is great for swimming and kid's play. The house is an older, comfortable place with an open kitchen and living area and adjoining terraces that easily accommodated our extended family group for meals and just hanging out. On the main level within the house the only way to the master bedroom is through the second bedroom and the shared bathroom. Each room, however, has an outside door to a covered terrace so the solution is to use the terrace as the hall. The third bedroom is a separate unit below and behind the main house with a partially separated kitchenette and eating/living area and bath. It is not fancy, but with a double bed, bunk beds and a couch, it can sleep a crowd.

There are lots of stone steps down to the big pool and further down to the street requiring some vigilance with kids.

Casa Vista Alegre was a great place for our extended family of grandma and grandpa, uncle, mom and dad and three grandkids. It was easy for everyone to come and go to town and the beach and to hang out at the pool or around the house.

Stop looking. This is the house you should rent.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week in Sayulita staying at Casa Vista Alegra. The two pools are warm, clean and provided many hours of entertainment for us. The property was immaculate, the staff was attentive and the privacy was plenty. LeAnne is great to work with, and, bless her heart, she provided us with an amazing gift upon our arrival. She was very nice to deal with. We will definitely stay again.

Exceeded High Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Based on the photographs and description of Casa Vista Alegre we had high expectations for our stay in Sayulita. Upon our arrival it was immediately apparent that this would be one of those rare moments that our travel expectations would be wildly exceeded. Casa Vista Alegre is set on a hillside just two blocks above the center of Sayulita and offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. While close to the town and the beach, the Casa also offers privacy with a sense of being just far enough removed from the energy of the town center.

Casa Vista Alegre was clean and beautifully furnished with everything we needed. In addition, a cleaning service was provided daily and included delivery of fresh drinking water. The three bedrooms easily accommodated our party of four adults and there was plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the stay.

I can't recommend this home highly enough. The owner, LeAnne, was also very helpful in suggesting ways to make our trip easy and fun-packed. We would stay at Casa Vista Alegre again without any hesitation.
