Overview

North End Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom (sleeps 8), 3 Bath, spectacular ocean views, 40 foot pool

Casa Magia is cut into the jungle on a hill overlooking Sayulita. The villa offers incredible ocean, jungle and town views with total seclusion. With three bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 40 foot pool, you have the ultimate Mexican getaway!

With only a 10-minute downhill walk to the beach and additional five minutes to the town center, you get the best of both worlds: peace and quiet while still having quick access to everything Sayulita has to offer. You will get some exercise climbing the cobblestone road back up to the house; but the spectacular views, welcoming breeze, and privacy make it worthwhile. For those that want an easier return to the house after a great day at the beach or authentic Mexican dinner in town, a golf cart is the way to go.

Casa Magia has all the amenities to make your vacation special including:

• 40-foot swimming pool

• Chef's kitchen

• Wi-Fi throughout the house

• Air-conditioning in each bedroom

• Multiple terraces/balconies with lounge chairs & hammocks

• Gas BBQ

• Water filtration system

The pictures try to tell the story of this one-of-a-kind villa, but your arrival will still take your breath away.

Here are some details about the house:

The top level of the house has the large Palapa room with floor to ceiling doors and windows that provide 270 degree views of the ocean and jungle, chef's kitchen, dining area, and multiple balconies/terraces for relaxing, reading, grilling (gas BBQ) or watching the sunset over the Pacific. The kitchen has high quality appliances including stovetop, oven, side-by-side fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. The kitchen has utensils, cookware and glassware. There is also a full bathroom on the first level to freshen up after arrival from the beach.

The middle level of the house contains the master suite with a queen bed and in-suite bathroom, along with a second bedroom with a queen bed and a twin bed. Each room has a private balcony with lounge chair or hammock and air conditioning.

The lower level is where you will find another bedroom and adjacent kitchenette. Possessing the same spectacular views as the other levels, it has a queen size bed, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, floor to ceiling doors and windows, and in-suite contemporary bathroom. Across the walkway you’ll find the kitchenette with appliances, utensils and cookware you’ll need to cook a complete dinner or whip up a quick pool snack. The deck in front of the unit gives it an incredible open feeling where you can relax on lounge chairs or hammock.

Descend below the house to discover the fabulous 40-foot swimming pool and large deck with lounge chairs. Enjoy a dip to cool off or swim some laps. The water is treated with a pleasant saltwater filtration system for a refreshing experience without any chlorine irritation.

Rooms are stocked with bath and beach towels. Bathrooms have soap, shampoo, toilet paper, hairdryers—everything you need. The kitchen is also stocked with key basics.

The house is cleaned prior to your arrival, and again after you depart. The house is also cleaned every 3 days during the guest visit. More frequent cleaning is available for an additional fee.

Wifi is available in every room of the home. It’s not quite the high speed connection you’ve become accustomed to at home, but it handles web surfing and email. There is a fixed Mexican landline telephone as well as internet based landline (Vonage) for free phone calls to US and Canada. Cellular service is excellent—check with your carrier before leaving home to be sure you have or get the correct service package (e.g. AT&T now includes Mexico in most value share packages).

Security is provided via remote control gate and combination keypad door. There are safes in the bedrooms for your valuables. There is parking for an auto or golf cart inside the gate.

Miguel, our property manager (+52-322-108-7680), will take care of every need during your stay. Miguel will meet you when you arrive to check you in, provide you with keys, door opener, and walk you through the logistics of the property. Any hassles or questions are a text message away.

Small children: unfortunately, we don’t recommend families with small children pay a visit to Casa Magia. Although it provides an incredible open air environment, the balconies have open railings on every level that present a safety hazard for little ones.

Transportation:

From/to Puerta Vallarta airport: we can arrange transportation to / from the airport with a well-regarded car service (using comfortable Chevy Surburbans). The driver will take you to an outstanding full-service grocery/home items superstore (Mega) so you can get whatever you need. You will find a quality presentation of fresh produce, meats, dairy, beverages, and snacks

Golf cart: the rental company, which knows our house very well, will deliver the golf cart to the house and provide instructions on use.

We can also provide suggestions on entertainment and other activities:

Private chef: we can recommend a chef that will come to the house to prepare meals for you and your group. Inquire about details when you book your stay.

Dining out: Sayulita has a wide variety of restaurants; ranging from upscale Italian to outstanding casual street taco establishments where you can enjoy the most creative and deliciously authentic Mexican cuisine.

Massage: excellent quality massage therapists await you in private huts on the beach. Get some truly high quality deep tissue work or full-body relaxation sessions for only $20/hour. You can also arrange for therapists to visit the house.

Surfing: rent surfboards and/or take lessons from many vendors on the beach.

Golf: budget golf is available at the 9-hole Las Huertas, 10-minutes north of Sayulita. Championship golf is available at several courses in the upscale Punta Mita developments, 20 mins from town.

ATMs: available inside pharmacies and mini-grocers. Use the machines inside stores instead of outdoor machines due to increased fraud risk.

The owners Anna-Lena and Steve (+1-415-806-1150) are available for all the questions you may have before leaving home.

About Anna-Lena Dietch

We are a California family living just north of San Francisco. We fell in love with Sayulita on a visit and decided it made perfect sense to put down some roots. As we searched for a home, we discovered Casa Magia had everything we were looking for and more -- view, peace and quiet, and close to town and beach.

Anna-Lena Dietch purchased this villa in 2015

Why Anna-Lena Dietch chose Sayulita

Sayulita remains a small fishing village with beaches, great restaurants, lush tropical settings, and super friendly people. Combine this with a home that has spectacular views, modern conveniences, and tranquil setting, and you have the ultimate Mexican getaway!

What makes this villa unique

A spacious home with unmatched views. A constant sea breeze with the sound of the jungle. All the modern conveniences families and groups of friends need to relax as well as be active including a 40 foot saltwater pool with a view of the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this fabulous home for a period of 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The incredible views that the house has from morning to sunset, changing all the time, the jungle quiet, the wild birds chirping all day and the serenity were more than anticipated.

Highly recommended for guests seeking quiet and peace away from a very noisy village environment.

The walk to town and beach was manageable and we enjoyed the bit of exercise that it brought.

The house is set up so incredibly with attention paid to all the small details to make a very hassle free stay.

Highly recommended above all the other homes that we considered.

THE Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Sayulita numerous times before and even lived there back in 2012. The town has changed a lot which includes more options to rent. I have tried them all: in the town, on the beach, and on the hill in the jungle. This is by far the best choice we have made. The views cant be described in words only experienced. Our grouped watched the sun melt into the ocean everyday from the living room, from a hammock and from the pool and they were all magical. Being safe and secure is always a priority when on vacation (not just Mexico) and we found the staff and security made us feel safe. All rooms had A/C which made for good nights sleep during our stay in July. The shower in the Master Bedroom is amazing as well! Perfect setting for groups or just a romantic getaway. The house is muli-level so everyone has their own space. Kitchen was perfectly equipped and we cooked almost every meal there. We look forward to our return to Sayulita and knowing this is where we will choose to stay.

Casa Magia magic

  • 5 of 5

The place is magic. Secluded in the hills of Sayulita. The drive to the house is gorgeous. Once you arrive the house seems small but once you start walking around you see how well designed the house is. And the view is amazing.

Make sure to get a car to get around. You need one any way to explore so make sure you do arrange for one. However, there are taxis to take you around and pick you up at the from door.

A very quite place so it's a great place to get away but close enough to the town center to have a little of both worlds.

Spring Break 2015 with our family

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 with one of our daughters off on a marine biology trip to California. 2 teenagers and their parents. We so enjoyed Magia. Miguel was as kind as can be and very responsive. When we needed him, which was rarely, he was prompt and helpful. This home is high on the hill with stunning views. We walked or drove our golf cart to town and to the beach. If it is rainy I would recommend walking (it is short 10-12 min, but steep in spots) as the golf cart did slip and slide on the brick road. Sayulita is charming, quaint and lovely. All around a beautiful vacation spot and the owners and property managers were fabulous.

Highest recommendation

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house. It's the last House up a steep street, with a beautiful view and incredible peace. The house is done perfectly. There is absolutely nothing that isn't stellar. The pool is incredible and long for laps. The kitchen and palapa room are perfect. Easy to forget about the rest of the world when you are here. Short golf cart ride into town. Great cooking facilities. Filtered water. Big bathrooms. A kind gentleman takes care of the house. The owners were so helpful. All around A plus.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what we needed for a great beach vacation. Location was just far enough away from town to have quiet mornings with birds chirping, but just close enough that it wasn't a chore to drive into town. We rented a 4WD golf cart for our stay and had no issues with the hill. I highly suggest renting one! The town is so charming. The locals even more lovely and friendly. Not to mention Miguel, the house manager, who was very helpful and sweet. Cant wait to come back and lounge by the pool and enjoy more of the beautiful view!

Amazing vacation in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

Casa Magia was the perfect home to vacation in and made Sayulita all more enjoyable. It's so special to feel high up in the jungle but close enough to town and the beach. Both Cameron and the on site manager Miguel were splendid to work with- addressing all of our questions and also providing great recommendations to further enjoy our trip and explore the town. The roads were difficult for some cars to access and the house is ontop of a steep hill, so going into town after dark should be well planned, but for active people ready to walk and hike and have a beautiful home that could feel like a break from town this spot is ideal.
