Encantadora is a bright, spacious, fully equipped and comfortable 2-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in one of Sayulita's newest and most attractive complexes. It's full of original artwork, custom-made furniture, lovely talavera ceramics and Mexican textiles. The pool is incredible and perfect for all ages.
You can walk to Sayulita's lovely north-end beach in 4 minutes, and stroll into the vibrant heart of the village with its wide variety of shops and restaurants in just a few minutes more. The location is ideal -- close enough for convenience, far enough away for peaceful evenings and nights.
Los Almendros is small -- only 26 individually owned condos in five three-storey buildings clustered around an amazing pool built for all ages. It's surrounded by large comfortable lounge chairs, umbrellas, a shaded palapa and a BBQ area. Swimming and relaxing just don't get any better.
The palapa-fringed front balcony overlooks the pool and is furnished with traditional Mexican equipale furniture -- loveseat, coffee table, round table and chairs. It's the perfect place to relax any time during the day, but especially on those warm, star-lit Mexican evenings listening to the sound of the ocean. We're on the first floor of the building nearest the ocean. There's an elevator to help with luggage and groceries and a parking garage. Street parking is also available.
The very spacious living-dining area includes a table for six, two large sofas, two armchairs and two coffee tables. We have WiFi, DVD and CD players, satellite television (U.S. and Canadian) and a growing library of books.
The two air-conditioned are light and airy and have ample closet, drawer and hanging space -- and lots of hangers! They also each have their own bathroom. The main bedroom has a king-size and a single bed, and its own balcony for your morning coffee, as well as a charcoal BBQ. The second bedroom has two twin beds, a fold-away bed and a 'Create-a-King' if you'd prefer to have a second king-size. All linens and towels are provided. Pool/beach towels are available from the office. There's a washer and dryer, iron, ironing board and hair dryer.
If you're eating in, the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need, including purified water at the sink.
The office staff are happy to help throughout the day, and a security guard is on duty all night, every night. Daily maid service is available except on Sunday.
Finally, there is SAYULITA itself. Amongst much media praise, the New York Times called it the “gem of the Pacific coast” and recently the Mexican Daily News called it the “IT village to stay in or visit”. It’s ideal for all ages and interests. A designated eco area, the village permits no buildings more than three storeys high and, as a result, the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, intimate and fun. Just 30 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and its international airport, there is no shortage of activities for everyone: surfing (on large or boogie boards), fishing, trail hiking or biking, kayaking, sailing or a jungle canopy adventure and more. And, of course, there is just plain basking on the wonderful sandy Sayulita beaches.
Whether you’re a couple, a family or a group of friends, it’s hard to imagine a better place to visit!
Mike and I have lived on Lake Chapala in Mexico since 2001, and we have been in love with Sayulita for almost as long. Buying Encantadora was a dream come true and we love it there. We're Brits who lived in Canada for a long time before Canadian winters drove us south. Encantadora is as bright and colourful as it is because that's what we used to crave. We really enjoy handling our own rentals and promise to make everything as straightforward and clearcut as possible.

We have visited many places on the Mexican Pacific coast since moving here in 2001. Sayulita is by far the most attractive and fun place to be. We chose Los Almendros because it's attractive, intimate, secure and architecturally interesting -- and that pool!
Great location; elevator; security guard 24/7; best pool imaginable for all ages.
Beautiful condo, perfect for family
We stayed at Encantadora for four nights, and loved it! It is clean and beautifully decorated. Loved the artwork, tilework and breezy balcony. The pool is large and provides lots of entertainment for children. The condo complex is a little ways from town, and therefore quiet. Great value -- would definitely stay there again if we return to Sayulita!
Great place! The pictures accurately reflected the condo and the pool. The pool was excellent with the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. Easy walk to the beach and the quieter part (north) of Sayulita. Great dining out food options were close by. And we loved the condo for just hanging out after spending the day at the beach. The condo had everything we needed. Would definitely rent again!
We have stayed at Encantadora twice in the past year, so this review is long overdue. The owners were so very easy to work with and the condo intself is meticulously clean, well equipped and so tastefully decorated. It is only a five minute walk to the beach and within walking distance of some great restaurants in the area. No need to go downtown, but should you want to, and you should, the walk is a mere 15 minutes. Sayulita is so unlike many other Mexican destinations we have visited. It still maintains the old Mexican charm. I would not hesitate to recommend Encantadra to any visitors seeking a great condo with a fabulous pool so very close to the beach. We absolutely loved every minute of our stay there.
Great complex and apartment for families with kids, especially being on the first floor. The complex was completely safe with a night guard and very friendly staff during the day. Daily maid service were available if you choose to have a nice tidy apartment every day included in the cost, which was amazing for holiday for moms.
Plenty of great restaurants and street eatery within 2 to 10 min walking distance. The beach was only 2 minutes walk from the apartment. The are some really steep hills in Sayulita, but from this apartment to town center or the beach is reachable via all flat roads, much easier to cope in the heat. Overall our family had an awesome time in Sayulita and were completely happy with the rental apartment. We would definitely be back.
A quiet location only 5 min walk from the centre of town or the beach. The condos are clean, the staff very helpful and the condo pool large and well appointed - and wifi... what more could you ask for. Villa Encantadora has a large master bedroom with a king bed and a generous ensuite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the back garden plus a 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds. The main bathroom is also generous in size, as is the livingroom / kitchen area and the second balcony overlooking the inner courtyard/pool. The kitchen has everything you need to have meals in, but there are also numerous fabulous restaurant minutes away - our favorites: Medusa, Don Pedro's and the Breakfast Cafe. 3 girls, we felt completely safe walking around town and back to the condo in the evenings - We would recommend this location for everyone -
