About AJ Thompson

We wanted to spend winters in a warmer place, so we started looking at ocean-beachfront vacation homes. Since we both grew up in Minnesota and then lived in Canada - we really wanted tropical and we found it 'Casa Gallo' in Sayulita Mexico.

AJ Thompson purchased this house in 2002

Why AJ Thompson chose Nayarit

Casa Gallo has it's own private beach access to Sayulita's North Beach. When we are at the house, we find there isn't a better place to be. Sunsets are amazing and the surf and sand are always changing.

What makes this house unique

The house was one of the first built on the North end of Sayulita beach. Even though it's been remodeled it still holds the hacienda charm. Cobblestone, tile, brick and stonework are throughout the house. It's just a 15 minute walk into Sayulita where there are restaurants, small shops and many things to do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

No wonder you are proud of Casa Gallo. It’s such a beautiful, older home in a lovely north shore setting. Chuck and I were happy to be in your addition: Casita del Mar, for our first week. We picked the 3rd floor bedroom, and it was very comfortable (new bed). The AC worked to perfection, and the outdoor shower was a plus (spotted Venus each night). We really enjoyed sitting up on the balcony and watching the passersby, the horseback riders, and the extreme tidal changes.



The staff was so helpful and kind and sweet natured. That spirit continued when the rest of our gang of 13 arrived for the second week. We always had clean rooms and fresh water and linens, on a daily basis. What a help. Lucy, and her kitchen staff, prepared 4 dinners for us, and we really enjoyed not having to shop, or cook, or clean up. Lucy helped us arrange van transfers with very reliable Uriel, and that worked like clockwork, both coming and going, and Sayulita pueblo was abuzz with celebrants and it was great fun to go into the mix.

THE MOST AMAZING HOUSE! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot even describe how cool this house is! From the moment you walk through the open entry to an amazing view of the beach and ocean you feel like you're in a dream. The covered patio is huge with lots of seating for everyone, a great place to gather, or just relax. The kitchen is open to the view and has everything you need to cook, if you choose to. (Lucia can cook for you if you arrange it). There are lounge chairs by the pool and beach to relax and enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails... The bedrooms are big and airy and every room has a beautiful view! My favorite room was the lower room on the pool level, as it stays so nice and cool down there - and the shower is open air shower - we slept so well! The pool was perfect, just the right size for a quick dip - but no need to swim in the pool as the ocean is right there! Be careful when swimming, there is a hard shore break to get over, but it's easy enough and wonderful to swim once you get out there. We rented golf carts ($55 US/day) and it was well worth it! It's a 5 minute fun ride into town from Casa Gallo, or about 15-20 minutes walk on the beach. I would definitely recommend renting at least one cart (we rented two). Sayulita is a darling little town with a lot to do - be sure to check out the beautiful cemetary on the way to the "secret" beach. We also did a really fun catamaran cruise on the Alley Cat (office is in downtown Sayulita) where we went to a national park (islands) and snorkeled, SUP'd, swam, jumped off of a high board, and all you can eat and drink! It was super fun and worth every penny for a fun day! This house is literally the coolest place I've ever stayed at! HIGHLY recommend if you have a large group. The location is perfect (far enough away from town to be quiet, but close enough to get there easily). Lucia, the house keepers and pool boy were all awesome. AJ is wonderful to work with, easy to communicate and made this vacation an amazing experience. I will definitely come back here!

This Home is Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I rented this home for a reunion and it was the perfect home in the perfect location. When you arrive at the home you are greeted by the beach and ocean right off the pool deck and if you're lucky enough to arrive in the evening then the sunsets are insanely beautiful. There were 11 of us and the home had enough room that we never felt cramped and had plenty of space to spread out. The home is far enough from town to give a great sense of privacy yet is close enough to make the leisurely stroll to and from town several times without getting worn out. We did rent golf carts though as it allowed us to see more of the town and it's just plain fun cruising around town on them and getting to some of the more remote parts of town. For the most part when we at the home we spent our time on the huge covered deck where we ate or on the edge of the pool deck drinking cocktails while over looking the beach as the sun went down. We could not have asked for a better house, location or experience and would 100% book this home again. Everyone involved in the home from the house keeper, the gardener, Lucia the property manager and AJ the owner were all great to deal with and made the process of booking, checking in and getting our questions answered so easy. Book this home if you're considering Sayulita!

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Casa Gallo and Casita del Mar for a family vacation (8 adults 6 children). We had a wonderful time! The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen well appointed and the common area so comfortable. There is plenty of space to quietly read or gather to socialize. The pools are small but sparkling clean and so refreshing.

The sunsets are stunning and you can enjoy them right from the casa. Literally steps to the beach.

We enjoyed the walk into town but also rented a golf cart as we had little ones who found it a bit far. It was handy to have the cart to bring in groceries as well.

Lucy, the property manager made a delicious dinner for us one night and even arranged to have a trio play for us! A very special birthday celebration!

The staff is friendly and keep the houses very clean.

If we are ever back in Sayulita, we would love to stay in Casa Gallo and the casita again. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Go! You won't be disappointed!

Sun & Fun in Salulita

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, amazing sunset views, enough room for 4 couples. We enjoyed many beach walks and the good restaurants in town were just a 10 min. walk down quaint cobblestone streets. Swimming and boogie boarding is good at the south end of the beach. We didn't swim out in front of the house. The waves and rip tides were too intense. Lucy was very helpful. She made sure we had everything we needed.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Casa Gallo and its adjoining casita for our families and us to enjoy for one week. We got married on the beach right in front. The property is breathtaking! Its located on the north end, which is nicer and quieter. The casa has a unique and special feel. Its obvious that the owners have put lots of love into this place. The staff is fantastic and very trustworthy. The property owners and family were very easy to work with and answered many questions beforehand. I would highly recommend Casa Gallo!

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here as 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids in total). The location was beautiful, within walking distance from town but far enough way to feel totally private. The house is beautiful, and Lucy (the property manager) was helpful and very sweet. She made an amazing dinner for us one night and arranged a delicious birthday cake for my niece! We can't say enough about this beautiful home, and hope to be back next year!
