Come & Enjoy!
My passion for the Puerto Vallarta area began in the 1980's while working in the airlines. I fell in love with the natural beauty, food, drink & people. Having lived in the Seattle and San Francisco areas most of my life, I love the warmer weather here.
In 2000, I brought my husband to Nuevo Vallarta, for our honeymoon. I have had a timeshare there for many years and wanted to show him this piece of heaven.
Jeff had never been to Mexico. He grew up in Maine on the French Canadian border. I wasn't sure what he would think.
Fortunately he loved it, and we bought a condo. A few years later. we found our treasure, what is now, Villa Gracia.
I have spent the last few years designing and thoughtfully choosing every detail. Every choice made with beauty and comfort in mind.
Jeff comes back & forth, as his work schedule permits.
It has been our vision to create the magical place to create special memories. We look forward to enjoying and sharing our updated home for many years.
Susan A. purchased this villa in 2006
After owning an oceanfront condo in Nuevo Vallarta, we wanted to find somewhere like Puerto Vallarta was decades ago.
We have traveled to many of the world's most desirable places, and found Sayulita to be Perfect. It has a combination of beach, ocean and jungle, a mix of locals, Americans & Canadians, fabulous food & so much to do! It is close to what the big city offers, yet with the small Village charm.
After living on the oceanfront, we wanted protection from storms, possible Global Warming & security issues. The beachfront wind had made it difficult to spend a lot of outdoor time on the deck. We wanted a place on a hill, with the soft ocean sounds & much bigger views.
I described what we were looking for, and our agent took us to one house. We walked onto the property and said, 'we'll take it'.
We bought Casa Pedro, and she became Villa Gracia (House of Grace). We do feel graced by God to be 'caretakers' of this awesome property.
It was a 2 room 'Tree House' with the most amazing views that we'd seen, and lots of land and potential. After construction for 12 years, we now share our Luxury Villa.
Villa Gracia is special. It has the best views of what the ocean & nature have to offer, while relaxing in the comforts of home.
We’d love to have you Come & Enjoy what we have prepared for your next Getaway. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
Susan & Jeff
Villa Gracia has among the best views in Sayulita! What makes us unique is that we have those views from every room, and sunset views all year.
We are close enough to the ocean to hear the waves as they hit the beach, located one, short hill (Chachalaca), to the main road that runs along the ocean.
We are surrounded by the jungle.
We have plenty of easy parking, iron lock gates, fencing & rails from the top of the property to the bottom.
Our beautiful stairs have extra traction, good spacing, and are faced with custom designed tile.
We have lots of huge decks, all with breathtaking views. They are perfect for suning, bird/whale watching and celebrations.
Sayulita, at times, has challenges with providing water. We have 3 water storage systems.
For those occasions when Sayulita has an unexpected power outage, we have battery powered light strips and candles in every room.
Our fire pit is the perfect sitting area for reading, while enjoying the Sayulita ocean view. At night, enjoy the Sayulita lights. For smokers, it provides a place to smoke, away from the main living space, yet is close and comfortable.
Our staff has been with us for almost 4 years. They love to assist in keeping us, and our guests, cared for. They will prepare meals, with advance arrangements, set up massages and other services. They have the information you need make your stay perfect.
My husband and I traveled to Sayulita with 6 of our friends and had a trip of a lifetime. We still talk about the memories on a daily basis. Beyond the town itself being one of our favorite places we've ever vacationed, Villa Gracia couldn't have been a more perfect place to stay. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We took full advantage of all of the amenities and perks this place had to offer - photos on the rooftop at sunset, hanging by the pool, walking to the beach, taking golf carts to town, cooking in the outdoor kitchen, yoga on the lower deck. I almost hesitate to write a review because we want to keep this place all to ourselves :) We will definitely be back in Sayulita and at Villa Gracia!
My wife and I went with an international group of friends and we absolutely loved this place. One person commented that it was the most beautiful vacation house she had ever stayed in. The views are spectacular. Ever room in the house is fully equipped. The staff bend over backwards to accommodate all your needs. We loved it!
VILLA GRACIA is located in Sayulita, Mexico on Nanzal Hill. Walk to the beach in about 5 minutes & to the village in 10-15 minutes.
Nanzal Hill is located in the north end of Sayulita. It is a prestigious, quiet neighborhood with Magnificent Ocean & Jungle views.
We are located at the end of & between two roads. Our upper entry & garage are on Calle Olito. The lower road, with private parking, is Calle Chachalaca. Calle Chachalaca is off Pal Mar that runs along the ocean.
Sayulita is an oceanfront village about 40 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport (PVR), in the region called Riviera Nayarit. The Highway is an easy, paved, beautiful drive through the Jungle. Reflective markers line the road, helpful for night driving, and a gas/convenience station at the turn off to Sayulita.
We have surfing, restaurants, bars, live music, art galleries & friendly people from all over the world. The food is safe, fresh & fantastic.
We are close to the airport, with the convenience of a Wal-Mart & a Sam's Club, yet feel a million miles away from the hustle & bustle in our Ocean, Jungle Retreat.
