North End House Rental Photos and Description

One of Sayulita's most beautiful homes

Corazon de Luz is a uniquely beautiful vacation home. Nestled at the edge of the jungle, and facing out towards the ocean and town, you may find you never want to leave the house. Located on the lush, southern side of Sayulita, we are just a 10-minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) from town, beaches and jungle trails. The grounds are spectacular, overflowing with tropical flowers, lush palms and brilliantly colored birds. Corazon de Luz is perfect for a small group or family, with 3-4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.

This hand-made home was designed and built as a labor of love. The architecture is a contemporary twist on the traditional coastal palapa-style. The space is tranquil, organic and harmonious with nature. Walk through the entrance towards a spectacular ocean view and sparkling blue water of our large infinity pool. The spacious, serene living room, dining area and airy, fully equipped working kitchen are crowned by a three-story palapa. It is the communal space.

The romantically appointed master bedroom is at the top of a sweeping staircase, with it’s own separate wing, sitting area, king-sized bed with luxurious linens and a Zen-like bathroom with an open-air private shower. The other side of the house has another master suite, with it’s own living room, king-sized bed and two decks. Upstairs is a sleeping loft with a full and twin bed, perfect for older children who will feel like they are in a tree house, but safe and sound under a palapa roof.

Crossing the bridge and heading downstairs is the lovely and romantic “jungle room”. The queen size bed faces the jungle and ocean view and has an outdoor seating area and very spacious bathroom and closet. Private, peaceful and quiet.

The whole house enjoys the benefit of a water purification system. The heated, salt water pool is perfect for swimming laps or simply lounging. Every bedroom has air-conditioning, overhead fans, spacious closets and your own safe.

Our caretakers, Fabiola and Canuto will provide housekeeping six days a week. They live on site in their own casita and are there to provide warmth, security and if you speak a little Spanish, very lively conversation. Our fantastic house managers, Gabbi and Nick will be your liaisons, providing personal service. They will be available to make your trip as comfortable as possible, connecting with you before you arrive. The house has wi-fi, iPod docks and safes in each bedroom, but no television. We prefer to plug into nature, read a book and enjoy the sweetness and charm of our little village.

About Phoebe Sarason

We built this beautiful house after we fell in love with Sayulita during a family vacation. We designed it as space where family and friends could come together to relax, play and enjoy the sweetness of this magical town. We live in California and are both in the arts and design communities. Our family love traveling, surfing, yoga, swimming and nature. We enjoy the warmth of the people and the life-style of this special town. We have made wonderful, creative and life-long friends in Sayulita. Our senses come alive in this special place!

Phoebe Sarason purchased this house in 2005

Why Phoebe Sarason chose Sayulita

Corazon de Luz is considered one of the most beautiful homes in the area. It was designed so that we could share a communal space and then retreat to our own private areas. Much consideration went into the design. Having traveled extensively as a couple and a family, we chose what we loved best about our favorite places. I think once you step foot in Corazon de Luz, you'll see what a special this 'heart of light' is all about!

What makes this house unique

*Tranquil, private, natural

*Very close to town, beach and jungle roads

*Open-air architecture, natural materials, yet very private

*Gorgeous 15 meter, infinity pool, great for lounging or working out

*Stunning ocean and jungle views

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family chose to celebrate Christmas 2013 in Sayulita, our 3rd trip to the area. We always undertake exhaustive research in order to find the right rental. This home surpassed all of the criteria we set when looking for a week of sheer indulgence! The home itself is beautifully appointed with furnishings and art pieces. Local materials have been used to make an impressive dining table, coffee table, etc. Each room has its own unique feel with fresh colors and textiles. All spaces are open and airy, seizing upon the natural beauty of the surrounding jungle yet maintaining privacy. It is true that guests have no reason to leave this place. We were quite happy to sip coffee, read by the pool, wallow in the water while looking with a bird's eye view down on the surfers below . . .all . . .day . . .long. However, one of the biggest draws to Sayulita for our family is the landscape with its mountains, jungle, bird life - the exploring is endless. My parents, 85 a nd 87 years old, along with the rest of the family absolutely loved walking into Sayulita, to Playa Los Muertos and shuffling along the sandy, cobbled streets in that area. The birding is tremendous. We were well cared for by property managers, Gabbi and Nick. They were always available to answer any questions we had about dinner reservations, arranging massages, rentals, taxis, etc. If you travel during a holiday, be sure to make those reservations in advance of your stay. In home massages, golf carts, catered dinners can be difficult to nail down. We were fortunate to sample (actually gorge on) home cooked fare prepared by Alma and Marta - shrimp stuffed chiles rellenos, chicken mole, spinach stuffed pork, among many other offerings. This catered dining experience is a must if you stay at Corazon de Luz. Corazon de Luz is by far, one of the most lovely places we've experienced.

Our family of nine (five adults, three older children and one disabled person) stayed at the incredible Corazon de Luz, and it was magnificent! Absolutely the best family vacation we've ever had in the most beautiful home ever! The furnishings were above and beyond, and everything was kept ultra clean. The heated infinity pool, our rooms, and the entire house were cleaned daily. Everything we needed was provided, and the service we received from the caretakers, Fabiola and Canuto, was superior! They even cooked us two delicious, traditional Mexican dinners! We all enjoyed ourselves 100% and would love to go again. We highly recommend this special Sayulita villa!

Beautiful large place...

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many places in Sayulita, and this is one of the best especially for a "medium-sized" group (say, 3 couples or so). Perfect views of the beach and town, and easy access down the hill either via the Villa Amor property or down a little back path we found (ends at the entrance to the cemetery). The best part was Fabiola and Canuto the caretakers -- so sweet, unobtrusive, accommodating and thorough.

Corazon de Luz was incredible - simply put, we couldn't have asked for a more tasteful, accommodating, and comfortable experience anywhere. Can't wait to return!

Could not find a nicer house in Sayulita!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd time in Sayulita and I didn't think we could possibly beat our last house. Well, the bar has been raised. From the moment you enter Casa Corazon De Luz, you understand this house is a labor of love in every little detail, which are plentiful. From the breathtaking view of the town, to the infinity pool to the amazing handcrafted furniture you know you are in special place. To top off the amazing house is a wonderful house staff that knows exactly what to do. I will definitely rent Casa Corazon De Luz again.

Gorgeous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Corazon de Luz is a very special place. Just the right distance out of town to feel like you've fully escaped. Excellent view, great birding, and a wonderfully appointed home. Easy access to the quieter beaches of Sayulita, as well as the Yoga Palapa. The caretakers are very attentive and friendly; treat yourself to their home cooking! we will most certainly return!
