Great place in Sayulita

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 and half Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom,

This Villa is about 5 mins from the beach walking on Manuel Plascencia Dr. We call this place Casa Cupola, so named for it's wonderful Brick inlaid arched ceiling or”CUPOLA” which arches over the living room and kitchen area for an wonderfully luxurious atmosphere. This is usually only found in Churches or Special Homes. Our home is approximately 1500 sq ft with 2 and a half bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a small foyer area which could be a 3rd bedroom for children and the living room can hold a futon also. Thus, depending on your number of Friends & Family, we might be able to hold as many as Eight people. Inquire for Details if over six folks.

There is also plenty of room for outdoor living in the front courtyard and backyard patios as well. Some folks enjoy sleeping outside in tropical climates with an elevated air mattress under shaded roof overhangs. Our backyard patio is roomy and part of a Botanical Gardens like area whose high walls give complete privacy. We also have Lounge chairs and tables for greater outdoor pleasures.

Constructed by American and Canadian Craftsmen & Designers, all the unique wooden curved windows open for great ventilation. Fans and air conditioning are also part of this home. Many colorful pottery and art pieces decorate the interior. We are conveniently located between the bridges and alongside the river in a culturally charming peaceful neighborhood. We are about a 5 minute walk from the heart of town & less than ten minutes to Beaches. Plenty of parking out front with an easy bike ride to the beach – This is a great home for your pleasure and enjoyment in Sayulita!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was very nice and clean, it was only a short work into the main part of town. The host was perfect and made everything easy for us to find.

BEWARE! One thing after the next

  • 1 of 5

We've been to Mexico at least once per year every year for the past 20 years. Unfortunately, this is the first time we've been truly disappointed. Below is a list of everything we encountered, made the property management and Joyous Vacations aware of and were never addressed nor resolved:

1. House not ready when we arrived at 6:00pm

2. Property keys were "misplaced" so we had to leave everything unlocked for the first two days

3. The extra bed we requested was laying on the side of the house and not setup until after dark

4. Electrocuted by exposed wires in outlet and told "Well, it's Mexico" when I told the property manager

5. Cockroach and ant infestation

6. Twice the Property manager told me "I'm too stoned and lazy to do anything"

7. No hot water for three days

8. Property Manager's dog came under the fence and pooped in our private plaza every morning

9. Light fixture broke and shot glass in my face

10. The refrigerator went out and spoiled all our groceries

11. All the hole-ridden, torn towels/bed linens/kitchen linens reeked of mildew and body odor

12. Window locks don't work

Our disputes were not addressed but instead sent to Joyous Vacation arbitration who responded:

"As we are a 3rd party company that helps with the disputes of many companies. We are only able to contact you by email. So we have a track of what your concerns or issues maybe. In this case we are working with Joyous Vacations. As we can't help with directions, issue with your stay at the time its happening. You need to call or email the contact person or the agent gave you. Please note they are not a 24 hour company it may take time. If you need to keep calling if its an emergency or call 911. But if you do have an issue after your stay. Just send us the details and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks Joyous Vacations; The Arbitration Department ”

We are still waiting for Joyous vacations to "contact the property owner"

We will gladly return to gorgeous and friendly Sayulita but we will never step foot in Cupola House again.

Owner's Response: This home is great, and the issues were not as they were written above. The guests were looking for a 5 star hotel type but was on a budget. Once they arrived they wanted to cancel with a full refund, as they found another home in the area. Yes there was some issues with the water in the area, as they said they visit for 20 years. They knew that Mexico is not like the states and issues arise. Guests were called back each time they asked and our local property manager went beyond to make their stay great. As we do have a 24 hour policy its set up for guests to know that if an issue arises and if it can wait until morning please do so. We offered a credit for another place at another time for the issues with the water that was a town issue. But we have had guests check in after their stay with no issues or concerns. They owner has been down there to check over the home. We feel this is a wonder place to stay for a great rate.

Clean, spacious and close enough to to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The home was easy enough to find. While a bit away from the main drag, it was a short, simple walk to the beach. Excellent reception from the caretakers and the house was spacious and well equipped. Could have used some toilet paper and hot water though. I felt very safe there.
