North End House Rental Photos and Description

Beach Front House, 4 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8),

Casa Ilusion has just reopened after a complete remodel over the past five months. Having a swimming pool was the impetus for the project, but as we considered the possibilities it quickly became apparent that achieving the level of quality we aspired to meant undertaking a complete remodel of the house; new kitchen, all new bathrooms, redesigned floor plans in the bedrooms, new polished stone floors throughout, an expanded master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi and private sun deck. The Whole-House has a Clean Water Filtration System. The living room is flanked with new built-in couches. A new beach palapa features the same layout, also with built-in couches. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with beautiful plantings of rare tropical plants. We think you will find Casa Ilusion a unique experience in Sayulita that will entice you to visit us again and again. New photos will be posted to our redesigned website in the near future.

Casa Ilusion in Sayulita is a unique, beachfront private home located on one acre of land with over 100 palm trees, and 120 feet of beachfront. It is the ONLY beachfront home, not condo, ideally located on the north side, and is perfectly accessible to all the town without having to climb any mountains. No car is necessary either. As soon as you enter Casa Ilusion, you will see through the house to the beautifully landscaped grounds, lush with magnificent palms, and to the ocean beyond. Relax under a palapa umbrella, or on a hammock by the ocean, take a swim in the new swimming pool with the sounds of the waves and the ocean breeze. Carry your board 200 yards up the beach to surf the left or right, or walk up the beach to dinner. This house is ideal for 4 adult couples or 2 familes.

In addition to the house comfortably sleeping 6 itself, there is a beautiful Casita, just steps from the ocean, which comfortably sleeps 2. The Casaita is completely enclosed, A/C, a real 'Honeymoon Casita' with a Full Bath, and a beautiful palapa style ceiling. In all, there is 4,000 square feet of living space.

Each spacious, air conditioned bedroom suite offers the highest level of comfort with high end luxury bedding, California King beds, and are complete with their own private bathrooms. The master bedroom has a sunken bathtub that opens it's windows to an enchanting view of the palms framing the ocean like a perfect picture in paradise.

The main living space comes equipped with all of the amenities you could need. A separate TV room with A/C, flat screen HD TV, DVD & satellite cable. High speed Wi-Fi connection is accessible throughout the house.


Casa Ilusion has its own private beach with palm trees which sits atop a five foot seawall, so you can either lie in the sun at water's edge on the wide public beach, or find some shade to take a nap on our own private beach.  This feature is also unique to Casa Ilusion.

Daily Maid Service is included. Chef and Masseuse are available upon request.

The house has three bedrooms with three King beds and can accomodate up to three couples or ONE family with children.

Awful Experience with Management and Owner

  • 1 of 5

The grounds are beautiful and so is the house, no question, but the manager and owner are unprofessional and downright rude. None of the things they describe as state of the art worked. The "high speed wifi that extends to the beach" didn't work except for only one evening during our five night stay, the TV never worked at all! Which was a major inconvenience considering we have small children and needed downtime during the stay. Management was unresponsive and the owner made excuses, saying it was due to the rainy season and that's why we paid "low season" rates. Ha! When we complained about the issues, we were sent aggressive emails from both owner and manager. One terrible night during a storm, the living room and dining room was flooded and had an inch of water, our 6-year-old slipped and fell on his tailbone. We had a few electrical sparks from an outlet and a lamp, needless to say we we were concerned about our safety in the house. I guess a safety hazard is also what we get when paying the "low season" rate. This was all on top of them getting our dates wrong and then placing the blame on us for their mistake. We understand mistakes, and we understand rain, and would've left a nice review if anyone was helpful or understanding, just an apology for nothing working in the house would've sufficed, instead we were met with finger pointing and condescension. The owner advised us to stay at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita next time, and I think we will, because then it might be an actual vacation instead of a stressful, scary experience that we paid thousands of dollars for!

Beautiful setting, serious problems

  • 1 of 5

While there is no arguing the beauty of the property, the subpar management and owners behavior will taint your stay. We were treated poorly. Renter, beware.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear this renter was unhappy with our management. Unfortunately the renter broke the contract by holding several large events at our house. While we tried in the past to host events, we are now unable to due to a new delicate and environmentally responsible septic system which we've recently installed. This property is ideal for families, not large groups. We are known by our other guests to go above and beyond for their comfort during their stay at Casa Ilusion.

We didn't think it could get better but it did!

  • 5 of 5

I dare anyone to find a better property than this in all of Sayulita. This is our family’s third year in a row staying at this wonderful estate. We always loved the house and the grounds were amazing, but the new remodel is truly a transformation that must be seen to believe. Everything has been updated! The groundskeeper and maid are there everyday meticulously cleaning and care-taking this exotic property. Lori and her staff are so friendly and helpful that my family considers it our home away from home. We will be coming back again very soon.

Outstanding Beach Property

  • 5 of 5

First of all, just wanted to tell you what a terrific time we had in Salyulita. We have really fallen in love with the town, and Casa Ilusion was a big part of it. Not sure what it looked like before the renovations, but it is spectacular now. My wife is a bit of an interior design snob and she has had nothing but great things to say about all of it. In fact, we are already trying to plan our next stay here.

This is the perfect house for one or two families. Close to the town plaza but far enough away to provide some sense of a private beach. We looked at many other properties while we were there, and we never once wished we hadnt selected Casa Ilusion for our Salyulita vacation.

We WILL be back!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

The house and location exceed expectations, even with the beautiful pictures that are provided. The house staff is unobtrusive and extremely helpful. The grounds are large and gorgeous and the house is spotless and very tastefully decorated. It is just the right walking distance from town. The house manager arranged for a private chef to come in for a couple of meals and the food. preparation and service we great. The ability to lounge, eat and hang out outdoors made it tough to leave the place. The household staff (maid and gardener) were unobtrusive, friendly and very helpful. Our kids (6 and 9) loved the place, as they had plenty of room to roam on property and were right on the beach.

Certainly one of the more expensive rental houses in Sayulita, but worth the the money. We would not hesitate to go back and have already recommended it to friends.
