Set on a hill in the charming town of Sayulita, overlooking the beautiful Pacific coastline of Mexico, Casa Dos Chicos is a unique vacation home available year round. With 360 degree views and its own lush garden, the house features 4 beautifully decorated suites, a swimming pool, a tree-top Hot tub with ocean views, and an open air living area with a rooftop living room and kitchen/dining room dramatically linked by a bridge. This one-of-kind property has views not only of the ocean and coastline but also of the lush foothills of the Sierra Madre and the town of Sayulita. Each bedroom has a private bath with shower, king size bed, fan, safe and indoor and outdoor sitting areas. All rooms share views of the walled garden, pool, town, and surrounding hills. This 3,000 square foot home can sleep up to 10 people and it is at once your own hideaway and a gateway to the delightful town of Sayulita, known for its languid pace, smiling attitude, and happy-go-lucky approach to life.
Sayulita is a small town of about 3500 that offers visitors many tourist attractions while at the same time remaining true to its Mexican origins. Forty kilometers North of the popular resort town of Puerto Vallarta, on the beautiful Riviera Nayarit, it was originally discovered by surfers who enjoyed its consistent waves and then by lovers of Mexico who found it an oasis when other favorite spots were overrun by tourists and development. Describing its laid back atmosphere, some have called it the perfect blend of a Mexican hangout and a Southern California beach town. While Sayulita has developed a low key tourist business, it remains free of chain hotels and chain restaurants; and, its cobbled streets are instead filled with taco stands, fruit vendors, galleries, and surf shops. In recent years it has attracted some beautiful boutiques that feature both traditional Mexican crafts as well as objects of modern design produced by Mexican craftsmen.
At its heart it remains a beach town where everything is a five to fifteen minute walk and local color is just around every corner. In addition, to its own beach that is alive with surfing schools, vendors selling Mexican crafts and tasty delicacies, and local fishermen, if you want to take a long walk or a short drive, you can visit many other nearby beaches each with its own unique beauty. For a more active vacation, Sayulita offers a wide range of activities for visitors of all ages including surfing, whale watching (Nov.-June), fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, horseback riding, jungle trekking, jungle canopy tours, and mountain biking. With so much to offer, you can see why Sayulita has been recognized as a special vacation destination by the New York Times, National Geographic, the magazine of AARP, and many other publications. Now you can enjoy the friendly surf, the strong sense of community, and the taste of old Mexico that have made Sayulita a great destination for vacationers.
I am an architect and designer and with my husband we developed a passion for purchasing and restoring, or building anew, homes in great locations and with terrific potential in Italy and Mexico. The design of all our homes is always fresh and unique and we believe that a vacation home should not only wonderfully managed but beautifully appointed and designed to give our guests the most luxurious and unique vacation experience.

We had a fabulous time in Sayulita and loved our stay at Casa Dos Chicos!We didn't want to leave! The property is exactly as the photos suggest, if not better. The views are stunning, the bedroom interior design is impeccable and the rooftop kitchen and living area are amazing. Thanks to you and Leila for all your help and hospitality. We definitely hope to return one day!
First of all the owner is absolutely fabulous..he is very responsive by email and on top of eberything. The house itself is serioulsy beautiful! very uniquely designed and the views are out of this world. There are 4 very equal suites all with en-suite bathrooms that are very well decorated. The pool is much bigger in person than in the pictures and actually gets a lot of sun during the day(I was worred it would be too shady with all of the palm trees but it wasn't!) we hung out by the pool most of our trip. It is a short 10 minute walk to the beach, downhill so very convienient. The walk up the hill gets hot but then you can just jump right in the pool!! sayulita itself has lots to offer, good beginner surfing and paddle boarding, lots of unique shops and restaurants. the beaches are ok but lots of peddlers. the sand is very nice and the views on the beach are great and there are lots of places to get chairs and drinks! overall we had a blast and would highly recommend this villa to anyone..oh and the cook maga was great too! If you want to stay in a very nice place in a very cute town then Casa Dos Chicos is the place for you!
We had an exceptional stay at Casa Dos Chicos. The rooftop dining room and living room are an open floorplan, with spectacular views of the ocean. We spent most of our evenings there--relaxing in the jacuzzi tub, reading in the hammocks or eating dinner by candlelight. This communal area is perfect for entertaining and a nice compliment to the more private areas of the house. I would also say that the pool is a welcome alternative from the beach--complete with all the amenities (outdoor shower, adjacent grill). And for those evenings when you really want to be lazy, you can have a wonderful meal catered and prepared on site. We've rented private homes around the world and I would recommend this property enthusiastically.
Sometimes we purchase items on line because the pictures are great, but the actual product is shoddy....In the case of Casa de dos Chicos the pictures do not do justice to the beauty of the house, gardens, views or pool. Every inch of the house is perfectly designed and decorated, from the sea-blue staircases to the magenta interior walls of the outdoor shower. Everything is designed to enhance the colors of the Mexican Rivera in which the house is located. The rooms are spacious and airy with windows that look into the interior garden and the bay. Every detail has been considered including all the correct cooking equipment, luxurious linens, even the art books in each room. The house is private and lovely. However, just as the owner advised, the town is noisy. There is a cacophony of roosters and chickens, gas delivery trucks and music from sunrise to sunset. The good news is that you only have a three minute walk to the plaza of Sayulita with its lovely little shops and cafes. The food is wonderful and the grocery stores well stocked. The people are friendly, many speak English, the beach is uncrowded but active, and it's paradise there in winter. We loved it and are looking forward to returning next year.
We are an Italian Family with 2 teenage girls and we spent a wonderful, unforgettable vacation at Casa Dos Chicos in December 2010! From this enchanting and luxurious villa you can enjoy 360 breathtaking views of the countryside and ocean and admire beautifully colored birds and Iguanas everywhere on the surrounding tropical trees. At the top of the house we had lovely breakfasts everyday with local Sayulita sweets, we bathed in the Hot tub with ocean view and spent beautiful moments in the open air living room on the comfy sofas and the delightful hammocks. The 4 bedrooms are spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and each unique and very private + with its own bath! At the garden level there’s a heated pool surrounded by a garden of tropical flowers where we relaxed every afternoon in full privacy. Every morning we made the beautiful walk to town and the beach where the atmosphere is the most authentic Mexican we ever experienced. Casa Dos Chicos is a not to be missed dreamy adventure!
Casa dos Chicos is the ultimate Mexican escape for people who want a luxurious but still authentic travel experience. Its position up the hill, looking out over the town (not to mention the rooftop living room view of the ocean!) gives the house a removed, serene effect without feeling disconnected. It's not a gated or resort experience. You feel every bit a part of the town of Sayulita while you're there and can enjoy the vibrant energy of this wonderful little town.
We visited this location with 4 friends [6 adults in total all in our 40's], once we arrived we all wanted to move in. The views, the 'casa compound' [as we referred to it], the town, the town people, the food, the sights the sounds, all added up to a perfect vacation. The local Property Manager was so helpful with getting us acquainted with the house, the town, and neighboring areas, he was also quick to respond to any assistance that we needed whilst we were staying at Casa dos Chicos. Renting from the owners was a breeze. The walk into town was easy and we all looked forward to the short adventure 5-7 minutes down and 7-10 back [uphill], we rented a car and hardly used it unless we drove to other areas outside Sayulita. In town you can find everything that you need [wine, beer, meat, fresh seafood straight from the boat, produce, baked goods, good quality roasted coffee ground or whole bean etc.] And as for the house itself - the photos don't do it justice - you truly feel like a 'rockstar'. Stop hesitating get there and check it out for yourself it is a beautiful part of Mexico and an amazing place to stay.
