About the property

Beach Front House, 4 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9),

Casa Ilusion undertook a complete remodel in the summer of 2013. 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 acid-washed stone tile floors throughout (non-slip surface), an expanded master bedroom suite. There is a Whole-House 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.

Casa Ilusion in Sayulita is a unique, beachfront private home located on one acre of land with 74 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 families.

In addition to the Main house comfortably sleeping 6 itself, there is a beautiful Casita, just steps from the ocean, which comfortably sleeps 3. 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, King beds, and are complete with their own private bathrooms. All bedrooms look across enchanting views of palms framing the ocean like a perfect picture in paradise.

The main living space comes equipped with all of the amenities you need. High speed Wi-Fi connection is accessible throughout the house and the grounds.


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.

Maid Service is included (no Sunday maid service). Chef, Masseuse, yoga instruction, etc., are available upon request.

The Main house (3,400 sq. ft.) has three bedrooms with three King beds and full baths; a separate Casita (600 sq.ft.) has a King bed and full bath. There is also a single bed in the Casita.

Amazing Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about Casa Ilusion...the staff, the facility, the location, etc - all superb. My only reason not to give a glowing review would be to thwart future guests from coming so that I can come more often!

Great Staff: Carlos the house manager is great. Before our trip he arranged cars/shuttles, had all of our groceries picked up & delivered to the house (a great way to optimize your time), he arranged paddle boards, took us surfing, picked up a visitor and more. He checked in with us most every day either in-person or by text just to be sure everything was ok. When we arrived he was there along with Carmen - she made margaritas & guacamole (both delicious). We hired Carmen to cook meals for us 2 evenings (doing this on the day we arrived was great so we could just immediately relax) - she's a great cook - everything was fresh and delicious. She and Ana Luisa kept the house spotless - we had 4 children under 5 at the home so I'm sure there were cheerios and whatnot that would inadvertently get dropped on the floor but they really kept the house clean - no bugs/ants/dust/etc. Great staff!

Quiet & Close Location: I really think this is the perfect location. It's a 5-min casual stroll to town either by beach or straight down 1 street, so when you're at the house its quieter, not rowdy, it feels close to everything but you still have privacy and peace. There are neighboring homes and small hotels so people are on the beach but you always have your own space without a crowd. Yet you can get to all that Sayulita has to offer in less than 5-minutes. Within 2-3 blocks there is a pizza place, hamburger place, grill, etc or you can go 6-8 blocks further to the heart of town with lots of restaurants, shops, bars, etc. In total its probably 3/4 mile.

Beautiful & Clean Property/House: My understanding was that the house was recently sold to a new owner (literally a few days prior to our visit), and they immediately had done some work to further fix it up and make it nice/safe. We really had no complaints but I believe they plan to make further improvements. It's tastefully decorated, was clean, the grounds were well maintained (a gardener came daily), and the view was perfect. A pool placed close to the home, a little private beach, and then access to the public beach & ocean just a few steps from the property.

Loved it & can't wait to come back!

Pretty tough to beat the location, property, proximity to the beach and town, massage tent, the local Bar next to the house --- Erik serving fresh fruit margarita’s, I could go on and on. We had two families with 3 children and everyone loved laying in the hammocks, swimming in the pool, reading in the lounge chairs and watching the gorgeous sunset from the private beach. Carlos the house manager was in contact with us a couple weeks prior to our arrival and arranged vehicles with car seats for children, worked with my wife to have Carmen (house chef) to cook us a wonderful meal at our request and pretty much accommodated all other personal requests—i.e. from bringing us Coconut water from PV on his day off. Carmen the chef was also always available to baby sit at very reasonable rates. I cannot say enough positive things about Carlos and his staff. We hope that this property is available for years to come! See you next year.

The property is charming and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay at Casa Ilusion, it is really paradise. The grounds are immaculate, house comfortable and inviting. The surroundings are heaven, birds chirping, butterflies everywhere, the sound of the ocean, the beach right in front, and the inviting pool looking out onto the beach and sunsets. You really can't top it. Also, everyone made certain we had everything we needed; paddle boards, golf carts, and even fresh guacamole daily. I highly recommend this for a vacation with or without kids.

Best vacation of our lives - we are definitely coming back!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Casa Ilusion and enjoying Sayulita were absolutely fantastic. My dad - who is a notorious (but totally lovable!) grump - went home and told all his friends it was the best vacation he's ever been on in his life. In his life! I have to agree with him 100%. Our entire group of family and friends enjoyed it from start to finish. We were there with our toddler, my folks, my husband's folks and our best friends. We did everything - literally, everything! And the rainy summer weather never ended up hampering our plans after that first night's storm! It was perfect (or perfectly timed) rain :-) the rest of the week. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your beautiful home in our new favorite town. Thank you for making that possible! We hope to return one day and, honestly, I can say that I LIKED going during low season. We got to do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted without a wait in line or being told no. I like that we got everyone's full attention! And with the pool right there at the house, there was no amount of heat that couldn't be remedied. It really all worked out perfectly. Carlos, Cande and the rest of the staff were fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about them. They took wonderful care of us and should be commended for how personable, trustworthy and generous with their time they are. I hope that we adequately communicated our gratitude to them.

Perfect home and location!

  • 5 of 5

What a dream! My family of five stayed here along with my brother and sister-in-law and their family of 4. It was absolutely perfect. Carlos made sure we had everything we needed - paddle boards, golf carts, fishing trip, even a delicious dinner made by Kande! I'm still thinking about that guacamole. The pool was a perfect way to start and end our days and having the beach right in front couldn't have been easier. We can't wait to come back to beautiful Casa Ilusion!

we had 4 couples staying here (executive retreat for my company). we were planning on only staying 4 days and transfer to the Four Seasons at Punta Mita. After the first day we canceled the Punta Mita stay and paid the cancelation fee. The house is unique in that it has 4 king size beds. It's the best property IN Sayulita. It's on the north side so quiet... AND RIGHT NEXT TO WEAR THEY RELEASE THE BABY TURTLES... which is beautiful. It's only a short walk away from downtown, although we rented 2 carts and cruised everywhere. the beach out back is EXCELLENT! the pool is perfect. the yard is great for throwing a football. the maid is wonderful and makes the best guac I've ever had every morning. Carlos the local manager is absolutely off the charts... we were trying to get to Hidden Beach last second, he hooked us up. he was an excellent surf coach as well... almost all of us got up on the first try. but mostly he was just an awesome local ally. he knows EVERYONE and got us the best deals on everything (many we had already checked prices on). I loved that it was gated (automatic gate) to keep privacy. AC all worked excellent. And lastly the owner is fantastic to work with. The best thing about Sayulita is that it still has the old Mexico charm and price tag. The food is excellent but not expensive at all. We go to Cabo, Cancun and Punta Mita all the time... Sayulita is about 1/3 the cost for everything.
