Overview

Sayulita Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 full ensuite bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Hidden among mature trees and tropical gardens is this oasis in Sayulita: Casa Duende.

Each of the three well-appointed bedrooms at Casa Duende have their own private en-suite bathrooms. A high, decorative wall blocks the view into the Casa from passersby street side, and the walls surrounding the side and back of the house ensure that the grounds are totally private. Guests can relax on the large, ground-level patio, equipped with a stainless-steel BBQ, sink and bar/counter - plus make use of the built-in wood smoker for the fresh fish you'll get from the local fishermen.

The two upper level bedrooms have a palapa-covered living room, and overlook the gardens and neighboring trees. The doors to the kitchen and living room are completely screened and open up onto the patio for a view of the bouganvillas, banana trees, cactus plants and gardens. Casa Duende is a quick, level, 3-minute walk to the plaza and to Sayulita beach.

There are no hills to walk, making this ideally accessible for all ages. There are stores nearby for purchasing groceries or other necessities. While there is no need for a car at Casa Duende, there is street parking should you require it.

Sit outside and listen to the birds while you have your morning coffee or a dinner of fresh fish that you just smoked and BBQ'd outside.

Life doesn't get better than Casa Duende.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our other rental for the week was full, and we need two more rooms, luckily we were able to rent Casa Duende for 4 nights. It is in a great location close to town and a very comfortable 3 bedroom with a great outdoor area to cook and relax. You can't go wrong and the price is excellent.

Charming downtown Sayulita Home, all the charm and comfort you'd want and a short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Casa Duende was very charming. We loved the way it was decorated and how comfortable it was. It has easy access to town and the beach. The owner and the management group were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely go back. We had a lovely time and of course we love Sayulita! Thanks to all..Monique & Family

NICE LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time (again) in Sayulita. The house is beautiful. We had to wait to get our key for a bit but all it all everything went well. No TV, but a very comfortable home. There were six of us ladies and it was perfect.

can't wait to get back to Sayulita. Would we stay there again, of course.

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Duende is in a perfect location just close enough to the beach and to the town square, but not too close so it's nice and quiet. We enjoyed our stay there.

Beautiful Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several homes in Sayulita and Casa Duende has been by far the best. The location is perfect; short walk to the beach/town square, but far from the noise. The patio/garden area is beautiful and well maintained and is where most of our time was spent when we were not at the beach. The home is equiped with everything needed for a nice relaxing vacation. We will definitely look to rent Casa Duende on our next trip to Sayulita.

Perfect, couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay on our trip.

  • 5 of 5

The location is great, close, but not too close. The lay out of the house is great, each bedroom has it's own bath, and the garden is where we spent much of our time. The property is well maintained and well managed, everyone was very helpful. Don't hesitate, if casa Duende is available for your trip just book it.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I brought my daughters, ages 21 and 16 the last week of August for a Sayulita visit. Our stay at Casa Duende was perfect for us, mostly because of the location. Even though we had a car, we were able to walk only a couple blocks to the Plaza, taco stand, breakfast joint, ice cream place and most importantly, beach! The girls met other young people and were able to walk in to town to dance at night and walk safely home. The house is colorful with a gorgeous garden upon entry. It was exceptionally quiet and private except for morning chickens. Nothing woke us up. One thing to keep in mind for a family is the upper rooms can only be entered from the outside stairs as they are separate suites. I wanted the girls a little closer to me at night, but we worked it out. The house has everything you need to cook but with town so close it's almost easier to grab a fresh, grilled, homemade taco on the street. Bedding could be upgraded to cotton and the furniture a little bulky for the size of the hang out room. Cleaning only happened once all week when we were there.
