About Randy Cox

We are a surfing family from Santa Barbara, California and have been travelling with our children to Sayulita since the early 1990's. This is our second home where we spend several months a year, so it is furnished with everything we ourselves enjoy! The house is a wonderfully relaxing getaway, and even after many visits we still find ourselves mesmerized by the views from the two dining terraces - we call this breathtaking panorama our own 'Wide Screen' of paradise!

Randy Cox purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy Cox chose Sayulita

Sayulita has all that one could wish for in terms of relaxation and reflection - beautiful sunsets, balmy bathing suit weather year round, warm ocean water, and dependable waves for surfing, SUP, and boogie boarding. There are also calmer beaches for kayaking, snorkeling and swimming. Sayulita's unique seaside culture and its friendly local people are hallmarks of this part of Mexico. The array of unpretentious restaurants and cafes featuring fresh local fish and delicious Mexican specialties are a pleasure we look forward to enjoying nearly everyday.

What makes this house unique

The name of our home is Casa Los Loros - the House of Parrots. The experience of the house is akin to being perched in your own luxurious aerie looking down on a tropical paradise! Since the house is not directly on the beach, we are afforded privacy and tranquility, yet still have stunning ocean views only a 6 minute walk away from the sand. We can step outside each morning and check the surf and ocean conditions from the front terrace. For us, the ultimate afternoon consists of floating in the infinity pool overlooking the surf, jungle, and mountains with a good book and cool Pacifico in hand!

One of the best vacations of our life. We fell in love.

  • 5 of 5

This must have been one of the best weeks of our life. The beauty and experience provided by Sayulita, combined with a hacienda that truly felt like home made this the perfect stay.

First, the home - Beautiful views everywhere, a true mexican feel, extremely well appointed suites, each with its own bathroom/shower. This place was built to make people feel as happy as possible, and it certainly succeeds. We found everything we needed and more - we enjoyed discovering board games, dvds, books, a cd collection, portable speakers to bring tunes near the pool, binoculars to watch the surfers in the morning - Everything provided made the stay comfortable, laid back, and above all: fun!

For the beach, we had everything we could have asked for and more: beach towels, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, even rash guards. They even have an ice pack that, when inserted in a cooler, make 6 perfect spots for cans of beer or soda. I swear, if you need it, they have it.

Second, the town. Sayulita is a gem, it's a special place, with a special feel. No big hotels here!! We loved the vibe and energy. You definitely get an 'off the beaten track' local experience, but you can still find a good bottle of wine for dinner, or croissants for the morning. Basically, there's something for everyone if you are not afraid to get out there and explore. We had a ton of fun at the beach, every day trying a different local food stand - and it was so affordable - we ate like kings!! On the beach, there are some vendors, but they understand 'no gracias' quite well, and many offer convenient things (fresh fruit, chicken or shrimp skewers, donuts, pizza, etc...).

If you want a busy beach, you can have that. If you want a stretch of beach with almost no one, you can have that too, if you want to totally deserted beach, you can hike over to one.

Lastly, I want to say that I really enjoyed the experience of communicating with the owner before the trip. He always responded quickly, was a wealth of information and gave us excellent advice. We arrived in town knowing where to go eat, what surf school to go to, what day trips to do, etc etc etc. Communication with him and all the great info he provided definitely contributed to the quality of the overall experience. Thanks Randy!!

I wholeheartedly recommend this vacation rental. My only worry is that with all these positive reviews, this place may become less and less available... And we want to go back!!!

Amazing view, pool and clean

  • 3 of 5

We will start with the positives:

1.the Home faces south/ west and has spectacular views. You are nestled right up in the jungle and surrounded by flora, wild life and lots of birds.the sunsets from the upper deck/ and pool deck will leave you breathless. The Casa is dated but clean. The bed mattresses are adequate . There are two small TVs and lots of dvds too watch. Plenty of towels pool/ beach. Ok to the brief sticky points.

The mega key debacle. 4 Keys too get in, then 4 more for each room and upstairs gate. I’m glad it was just us 2 staying here , if there were 4-8 people mass confusion could ensue. The refrigerator is apartment sized so again if you have a large group bring a large ice chest .he does have 2 little ones room for a six pack.when you walk up the 6 flights up stairs through the front yard/ patio/ pool area. You arrive at your main locked screened entrance.

Two locks there. As upon our arrival date 11/7/17 time 4:00 PM the temperature was 90/ humidity 90%. Being from San Diego we are used to heat. Seeing the A/C icon on Randy’s amenities page I figured we could cool the Home down as it was 90/ inside. The 2-3 ceiling fans and two floor fans don’t cut down the hot , thick air. And especially at night by 12 , four fans in the downstairs master didn’t come close to being able to sleep. The downstairs master bathroom shower didn’t work so we used the kids room bathroom. Worked great. There is plenty of safe drinking water in 5 gallon bottles to drink from. When we changed one out it must of had a micro crack in it and while we were out in the pool, leaked 1.5 gallons of water all over the floor. I’m glad we didn’t go into town that evening or 5 gallons would of leak all over the floor. We soaked it up w beach towels. Upon our last nights stay I got Sayulitas revenge, and haven’t been that sick in years from food poisoning. We spent most the morning cleaning up the best we could . Plus left a handsome tip for the cleaning staff.

In closing the really big disappointment in staying at this Casa was lack of A/C. There’s hundreds of hotel rooms/ condos/ homes to stay while in Sayulita .We travel extensively and use HomeAway monthly. I’m partially to blame w/ my lack of reconfirming about the fine details and home having WORKING A/C. So do your due diligence and confirm working A/C as this home has no through breezes at any temperature.

Oh, unless you speak fluent Espanol , Aida won’t made you a custom dinner. That was a bummer.

Owner's Response: I appreciate Eric's candor re: his recent visit to beautiful Casa Los Loros. Prospective guests are encouraged to read through all reviews at the VRBO website for a broad perspective of past guests' experiences at our property. Please note that website indicates that there is NO A/C provided; rather that a series of overhead and floor fans can be found throughout the house. In this case, particular amenities of our house as well as general aspects of Sayulita were discussed at length via a phone conversation prior to the guest's visit. Of course, in planning to visit tropical Mexico, we encourage all guests to consider that weather in the tropics can be very warm and humid on occasion. To many that is part of its appeal. I can personally assure all guests to beautiful Casa Los Loros that their concerns have been and always will be my foremost priority. Please contact me at any time. Randy Cox

Beautiful View, Great Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Casa Los Loros, it was more than enough room for 4 people. The pool was beautiful and very clean, the wide shaded porch provided a view and an escape from the heat. The key situation was challenging as others mentioned, but we knew that ahead of time so we expected a lot of keys, and we felt like our belongings were locked away safely! The living room of the house is pretty much open to the elements, just screened in--so that let some bugs in as you would imagine. I liked the little geckos on the walls though, they were cute. The wildlife can be loud too though, so you might want earplugs, we had some of the loudest birds I have ever heard squawking at us in the mornings! Overall we were super happy to stay at Los Loros, a safe haven with a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets!

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Los Loros. We were two families - four adults and four children - and the house was more than comfortable for all of us. Aida was so wonderful! The house comes fully stocked with water and all needed dishes and cooking utensils. Great movie and book selections. Gorgeous view! Wonderful pool. We didn't mind the hike up the hill even with kids age 6 - 10. They complained a little bit, but it was good for them! We had a wonderful week here. The only thing I would advise parents is this: the rooftop deck made me a little nervous. It was perfectly safe for children over 5, but I would worry about children under 5 crawling over the wall. There are a few other spots to watch your kids, but it's not something that should keep you from staying at this house unless you have a really active toddler and then you might want to reconsider. So many lovely places to lounge and relax. Sayulita is so charming. Really, a great house!

Second Time - Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casa Los Loros. This year we spent two glorious weeks over Christmas and New Years at the house. Sayulita is a charming town and will meet the needs of any family. There are great restaurants in town, ample grocers and many activities to keep you entertained. This year, highlights for us included releasing baby turtles at the sanctuary (again!!), the local Friday market (a must!), spectacular whale watching (best ever!!), a side trip to San Pancho, a beach day at Playa los Muertos, and a snorkelling excursion to Coral Island. Casa Los Loros is the perfect base for your family vacation. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. Each room is a good size and private, and the beds are very comfortable and the linens lovely. The front porch and pool area are where we lived for two entire weeks - the views were amazing and the breezes refreshing. From the porch you can also view some of the most beautiful bird life you can imagine - right in front of you! Thanks to the owners for providing binoculars for this!! The pool is pristine and a great place to hang out and relax after an active (or not so active!!) day. Aida, the housekeeper is attentive and keeps the house in spotless condition. We feel a special connection to this place, and appreciate the opportunity to once again, build wonderful family memories.

Private, amazing pool, amazing view. Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Los Loros for 7 nights and had an amazing time. We were two adult couples from Vancouver, Canada and a spare from Miami, Fl.

Firstly, I find it a bit odd that other reviewers keep moaning about the stairs. It's not THAT bad at all. In fact, I remember distinctly laughing about it with the posse. It's a big beautiful hacienda overlooking the jungle & ocean. There will be stairs. You will be fine.

The road (Nanzal) to the place however... Wowza. Really steep and winding. It's definitely not good for very unfit types or the elderly or folks with mobility issues. Actually who am I kidding? It‘s GREAT for unfit types or taco whores like myself. But seriously, the walk from the house to town/beach is so beautiful that we actually enjoyed it a lot. When returning we would walk sometimes for excercise and get taxis more often.

Aida, as per other reviews, was so great. A warm soul. She has a sweet little boy named Marcos Jr. and a dog named Bobby. We downloaded the pro version of an amazing translation app called iTranslate Pro and could converse with them over WiFi in almost real time. (BTW, said app is Star Trek level cool and helped around town as well). She made us an amazing traditional dinner one night and we insisted that she and her son join us.

The pool was a bloody life saver. Sayulita is very hot & humid and we used it often. Coming from the Pacific North West we‘re not used to that kind of heat and it took a few days to acclimate. The pool is a perfect size and depth for all types of people. Oddly, the ocean feels even warmer. The pool is refreshing.

We would definitely stay at Casa Los Loros again. We would definitely visit Sayulita again too... Actually if we had the pesos we would most definitely buy a place there. Sayulita is paradise!

Randy, as per other reviews was a great digital liaison and we at no point felt left in the dark.

You may see the odd critter in the house... This is normal for this part of the world. You‘re in THEIR jungle after all.

We miss Sayulita so much. Back to work on Monday. :-( (Save me!)

Pro tip:

There is a restaurant in town called Yeikame (Yelp it). We loved it so much that we ate there for breakfast like six times. BEST huevos rancheros ever ever ever. Lunch & dinner great too.

If you can't goto Bucerias for banking we found a solid ATM outside of Su Casa bar. Also outside the liquor store across from Choco Banana. The other ATMs in town are super sketchy.
