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
Sayulita has all we need for 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.
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!
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!!!
We stayed at casa Los Loros for 6 nights as 3 couples. This house was great for us. The house has a breathtaking view during the day and also at sunset. It is so nice to swim in the pool while looking out at all of sayulita and also for my boyfriend to be able to check the surf! There were various keys which are mentioned in previous reviews but you do get used to the locking and unlocking after the first few times - and it helps to add another level of privacy for people staying in different rooms ( 3 separate rooms ). Aida and Marcos were very pleasant , very responsive to any of our needs and recommendations for what to do in the areA. Aida comes to clean the house about every other day , and she washed our dishes which was nice. she brings her little dog Bobby who is very cute and sweet. Randy - the owner of the house was very responsive before our trip as well as during and after. He is very generous with letting you use his beach equipment as long as you take care of it! We did not rent a golf cart because it was kind of expensive - taxis were very cheap ($3) per ride - and so we decided to- go that route- but it takes about 15-20 mins to walk into main square of town - and on the last day of our trip we were offered a ride on the back of our neighbors golf cart. It was soooo nice to cruise down that hill!! We think we would have done a lot more things if we had had a golf cart because the walk does take time especially with the humidity in June :). I would suggest using the jugs that randy provides for water to brush your teeth to prevent getting sick as much as possible! As well as ️use bug spray:) at night / sleep with the sheets off and you should be able to stay plenty cool with the ceiling and floor fans - especially if you dip into the pool before bed. We'll be back!!!! Hot tip- use FaceTime audio call to contact Marcos for anything urgent or that needs to be addressed asap while you're there. Wifi is excellent!! And the call will be free :). Have fun! Thank you randy!!!
Wow. what a week! just amazing all around. 1st - Randy was awesome, responsive and helpful. 2nd - the place was perfect and exactly as every review and the ad said. our family of five loved every minute - a lovely respite from the 'hustle and bustle (ha!)' of downtown. Pool was incredible. beds and living arrangements great. wifi, music, appliances. house cleaner Aida was lovely and Marcos was a sweetie. everyone was so helpful and welcoming. all amazing. 3rd - when can we book again!? Enjoy. Sayulita rocks. and so does Casa Los Loros.
Casa Los Loros is the best. The infinity pool and gorgeous view are so great to come back to after a day at the beach. Beds were comfortable and the place was clean with great light. Aida and Marcos were helpful and kind. And you have two decks to choose from! Anyway, this place is a home run.
This house offers a spectacular view, but be aware that there are several stairs and this house is located up on a hill. We rented golf carts and found them indispensable. However, the additional cost is something to consider when comparing costs between rental houses.
This house comes with ~15 unique keys. The multitude of keys was an annoying hassle and lent to a feeling of not being 100% safe, especially when combined with the admonition by the owner to keep all doors/gates locked. Because of the key situation, we did not use the upper patio often. It also precluded us from using the upstairs bedroom because it would require opening 6 keys/locks to get from the main part of the house into the upstairs suite and we didn't want to split up parents from young children.
The configuration of this house could work for 3 couples, or for those with older children who can be separated from their parents by 2 locked gates & 2 locked doors, but it did not work for us, which was very disappointing. Cramming all 8 of us in the 2 downstairs bedrooms was less than ideal.
The pool in this house was great, though it is unheated. It was refreshing on hot days, but on the one cloudy day, it was too cold to get in. Even on warm days, our children's teeth were chattering after being in the pool for a while.
We had a not-so-great experience with the housekeeper. When she came to clean, she inexplicably neglected to clean one of the suites. We emailed Randy and she returned the next day to finish cleaning. She brought her son and her dog with her, both well-behaved, but unexpected and unfortunate for the person in our group with allergies. We also had an issue with sewage smell emanating from one of the bathrooms, which Randy (who was pleasant to deal with despite the issues described in this review) sent staff out to deal with promptly.
Soon after our departure, we received an email accusing us of leaving the house 'filthy' without any further description or pictures. We most certainly did not leave the house dirty and are totally baffled by this accusation. Our child did drop and break a cereal bowl, for which we apologized and offered to pay. Additional money for extra cleaning was also taken out of our deposit. If you do rent this house, we suggest you take pictures upon your departure to prove the condition in which you left the house so that it is not your word against the housekeeper's.
Overall, we would not recommend this house to friends or family.
We are a family of 3, including an 18 month old child. We had a great stay at Casa Los Loros. The house comes well equipped for preparing meals, clean bottled water is available at all times, adaptors for our cell phones and computer and 2 safes for personal items of value. We only used the lower 2 rooms for ourselves and our child. Getting up to the patio and the 3rd room requires many keys and per the owners instructions on keeping the home secure, I found it too much work to be up there unless I was hanging laundry. Bring another couple and the upper retreat would have been an excellent and quiet getway for the lucky pair. The pool is small but was just the right size for us to play and and cool off, we were in it several times a day, especially after a long and steep walk back to the house. We did not rent a golf cart, instead carrying our child on our backs in an Ergo. It is as steep a walk as previous described in other reveiws and requires at least some fitness. We wanted to be away from downtown and the noise associated with it, it was fairly quiet up on this hill, noise coming from other tourists driving up to their rentals at night, local construction and birds in the morning. I think having a golf cart may have encouraged us to leave the house on a whim here and there. As it were, we would leave about twice a day for long periods of time. Close to the home (10 min walk) are several small restaurants and "conventient" stores for cool drinks, some fruit, etc. The center of town is a bit further and offers a lot more. I ordered Pesos in advance online, through my bank. The money was delivered to my home in just a few days. We stopped at Mega store in Bucerias on the way to the house, having rented a ride through Jose Ramos on Sayulitalife.com, had I know how little is available to purchase in Sayulita, I would have stocked up more at Mega store. The few small grocery stores in Sayulita have limited items and do not take credit cards. In fact most places would not take a credit card so having plenty of cash on hand or being willing to draw money from an ATM is necessary. We did use a Casa di Cambio near the plaza twice to exhange money, it was pretty straight forward. Aida, the house keeper, came around 3 times during our stay and was very nice and easy to have in the house as she did her light cleaning. The pool person came and went twice and was pleasant too. By far, the best thing about this home is the magnificient view from the lower (main)
