The villa is located at 'Villas Rana Verde' Sayulita's premiere estate property, we are one of the largest pieces of estate property in Sayulita. The beach across the street is one of the most pristine, sandy, private beaches with the cleanest water in Sayulita. The beach is just a 2 minute walk on cobblestone from our front gate. It is not unusual to be the only person on the beach for 1/4 mile in each direction. There is great surf fishing on the beach right across the street from the estate. The fisherman regularly catch snook, sea bass, grouper and many other varieties. It is a nesting grounds for Leatherback turtles who can be seen in the early morning hours and late evenings during summer months laying their eggs or hiding the nests before their return to the ocean.
We are located about 1/2 mile from the village in the exclusive north beach area of private villas away from the night noise of the village with its roosters (why do they have to start crowing at 2:30AM?), cantinas, and Saturday night disco, and all night drum circles. Your quiet night of sleep is assured. We are directly across from the pristine, private, sandy beach you have ever seen, just a 2 minute walk from our front gate on a cobblestone path. The short 10 minute walk to town can be along the beach or a quiet, low traffic paved road.
We provide everything you need for a luxurious and relaxing stay. Hair dryers in every bathroom, organic fruit from the estate for your table, daily maid and pool service, optional cook, beach towels (chairs and umbrellas too), fresh flowers, the best of everything, all in the very private setting. Our villas can not be seen by each other or by the surrounding villas. Our driver can pick you up at the airport in an air conditioned Suburban with cold drinks of your choice. If you are looking for a very private getaway without even leaving the estate, our cook can prepare the best Mexican meals. She brings her masa dough for tortillas, along with her wooden press (many guests enjoy pitching in and making their own tortillas, it is lots of fun with Lucia), and she prepares salsa, guacamole, rice, beans, and 2 entrees with your choice of chile rellenos, shrimp, fish, chicken, pork or beef. Most guests tell me this is one of the highlights of their trip.
Our lovely estate is home to the most beautiful birds that you are likely to witness outside the most complete aviary of exotic, tropical, colorful birds. We have identified over 100 varieties of these magnificent creatures. There is an even larger abundance if you venture into the nearby jungle.

Barry & Connie Dumont moved here from Santa Cruz, CA in 2003. They had been Realtors there for the previous 20 years. They have four children, one of whom moved to Sayulita with them and owns and operates Galeria Gypsy in the village of Sayulita. They have always had a keen interest in Mexico and south, and were frequent visitors during the 70s and 80s to Mexico, Guatemala and Columbia. Once the four children had grown, they renewed their love affair with Mexico and made the move to Mexico full time in 2003. They live next door to the villas. They travel to the interior of Mexico and as buyers for their daughter's store several times a year, and when in Sayulita are surfing and enjoying the fantastic laid back lifestyle.
Barry and Connie Dumont purchased this villa in 2003
My wife and I 1st came to Sayulita in 1995. We immediately loved the wonderful ambiance, weather, ocean, beaches and great people. We were living in Santa Cruz, CA at the time, which we love for many of the same reasons. As the years went by we were spending more time each year in Sayulita. We met the previous owners of the property and thought what an amazing piece of property it was and never dreamed that we would one day own it. We thought it had the perfect combination of great ocean views, easy beach access, privacy and great location. After we bought the estate, we moved here full time in 2003 and have never regretted a day. We live next door to the villas full time, so we are here to be sure that your vacation is all that you expect it to be. There is a reason why everyone is talking about Sayulita, but that reason is actually many reasons. It is just a fantastic place to live or visit! Come and visit us and discover why so many of our guests describe our villas in superlative terms. We make it great for you!
Our estate is a fantastic venue for any size group of up to 15-20 people, depending on whether there are families, couples or singles. All 3 villas have their own private pool. Nothing is shared between the villas except the parking area and gated entry. Each villa has its own pool, kitchen, gardens, etc. Our full acre plus property is landscaped with the finest garden in Sayulita. Due to the extensive 15 year garden and other landscaping, there is total privacy everywhere. There is maid & pool service six days a week. There is a fantastic cook that prepares, serves and cleans up after an 8 plate meal for 120 pesos/adult plus the cost of the food. We use only the finest for your bedding, cooking, bathing, etc, so that when you come here, the comforts are much like what you are accustomed to at home. Our driver will pick you up the airport, insuring your comfort and safety to and from the villas. Our ocean views are unsurpassed in Sayulita. It is just a 2 minute walk on cobblestone to the sandy, pristine beach from our front gate, and only a 10 minute walk to the village of Sayulita by sandy beach or quiet paved road. We live next door to insure that your needs are fulfilled. We care about your stay and want to make the best it can be!
First time to Sayulita. Have spent many VRBO rental vacations in the Caribbean. This home was extremely clean. Especially the kitchen which I have found rare in other rentals. Everything worked. A/C, stove, fridge.
The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. Ahain a miss or hit with villas. Very nice, warm and clean pool. Just wish it had a hot tub. Property owner Berry very quick with email correspondence. Depentable and honest.
Great housekeeping and Angel the driver to get you safely and quickly to and from the Villa. The home cooked Mexican meal on our arrival night was perfect.
My wife and I found we had 5 days free and wanted a little escape from the daily grind. It was also an anniversary so I tried to make it a bit special. I found that a non-stop 3.5 hour flight could get us down to Puerto Vallarta. Barry's property stood out as I did my research on the area. It was so easy...pop down to PV, get picked up at the airport by Barry's driver Angel, stop at the market for supplies and into a tropical paradise. Leave Monday, back Friday after a leisurely Friday morning at the beach in front of the house. I kept wondering how someone had been able to design such private, charming, comfortable casitas. You felt totally relaxed and in another world. First class but not pretentious...just lovely. And great surfing and food in Sayulita. I waited a month to write this but the warm feeling has not faded. Congratulations and thanks to the Dumonts for creating a hospitable and beautiful spot for us all!
I spent the last ten days at this house with my wife and two of our four children. You cannot tell how good this place is from the website. Every one of our expectations was met or exceeded. The accommodations are great. The linens and towels are of the quality we would have at our own home. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked great meals there - except for the first night's which was prepared by Lucia, the housekeeper, and was by far our best meal of our stay (this coming from a non Mexican cuisine fan; although I may be a convert now!). The staff is superb, attentive and courteous. Barry, the owner followed up with us periodically to make sure we were comfortable and did not need anything. Having staff make our beds, clean our bathrooms and kitchen daily made us feel like being at a hotel, but with the privacy of a house. They even clean the patios and pool. We used the pool every morning and upon returning from the beach in the evenings. The views from our balcony were breathtaking! This was our second visit to Sayulita and the first to this particular house (our favorite now). We rented a golf cart to move about town but walked to the center of town from the house many times - it is a short and pleasant 10 minute walk. The nearby beach is within a one or two minute walk. We definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling to Sayulita. We will have to come back soon to even-out with our other two children! - FB
My wife and I stayed a week at Casa Mikayla. The property is gorgeous with lush gardens and cobblestone drive and walkways. The villa staff are friendly and helpful and the house cook prepared a fine meal our first night. Because the villa is on a hill, the views are fantastic with the ocean on one side and lush tropical hills on the other. The villa is decorated with wonderful local folk art. Each wall of the villa's main rooms are filled with beautiful Mexican art. It is only a few minutes walk to a long stretch of white sandy beach and often there were only a handful of people there. It is only a 15 minute walk into town where there are many good restaurants and shops to go to. We rented a golf cart and would travel all around the small town of Sayulita taking in the sites and then shopping or eating great food. We realize that on our next stay in one of Barry's villas will have to be for a longer period of time because we had such a wonderfully fun and relaxing vacation.
My wife an I stayed in Casa Mikayla for 3 Days and had an amazing time. We went to Puerto Vallarta for a wedding and decided to do a side trip to Sayulita. My only regret was not staying longer. The house is amazing, with ocean views, private pool, private patio area for just you! Barry offered a service for Lucia to cook a dinner for us, I highly recommend this as the food was mouthwatering! Try the Chile Relleanos and Chicken Mole. It will be your best meal of the trip. From the time we booked Barry was in constant communication to make sure everything was set for our arrival. It was nice to know the owners weren't leaving anything to chance and really wanted to make sure we had nothing to worry about during our vacation. This will be our new spot and I couldn't recommend it more highly!
This was my first time to Sayulita and I had no idea where to stay. Casa Mikayla was the perfect place. Beautiful grounds, gorgeous views, waves crashing at night, very peaceful location. The house exceeded my expectations - fun artwork, tiled showers and kitchen, immaculate rooms, extremely comfortable beds/pillows. The owners have paid attention to detail -- towels, bedding, kitchen appliances, etc. It is an easy 10 minute walk into town (passing restaurants along the way), and the beach is right across the street (less than a 5 minute walk). I would absolutely stay here again.
Athletic field, Botanical extravaganza on site, boogie boards as available, or just plain relaxing!
