About the property

Modern Home Saltwater Private Pool! Amazing 360' Ocean, Jungle, Village views!

Before sending reservation requests please take the time to read the whole description, to make sure we are are a good fit for your needs.

Must see to believe!! Total Panoramic Views to take your breath away!!

Stunning modern home located in one of the premier locations, walking distance to fantastic restaurants, shopping, surfing or just sitting at cafes for people watching. Yet the property is just far enough away and totally private to still offer 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, unspoiled jungle, and the quaint village of Sayulita. You might not want to leave the crystal clear water of the infinity salt-water pool which seems to flow endlessly into the sea, or you might fall into one of the hammocks or chaise lounges just and read or nap. It is easy to watch the ocean for hours. There is amazing bird watching from the house: the little green parrots, the Black-throated Magpie Jays, Macaws and even Chachalacas ( if you never see one, you'll definitely hear it); these are a few of the 336 species living in the area. Let us arrange for an incredible whale watching tour from December until early March. The tour is led by a research oceanographer who follows their migration patterns up and down the North American coast and knows every whale's name by sight. Hike through the jungle to secluded beaches and picnic before jumping into the surf.

Please note: Although there have been no reported cases of Zika virus in the area and you are pregnant or considering getting pregnant, please talk to your physician before coming down. As a precaution, we suggest taking out travel insurance.

The home was designed by a well known Mexican architect in true contemporary style using concrete and entire walls of glass with wonderful inside/outside living areas. Handcrafted custom Parota wood louvered doors open onto decks, patios, the garden and pool area. Every individual detail was carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the unique and comfortable design, such as the onyx walls, honed granite counters, and custom made furniture. The king sized beds feature 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, and makes a perfect spot to relax and watch one of the 300 DVD titles in the media library. If you can't completely leave the outside world behind, there is super fast WIFI throughout.

The house is perfect for two couples, but the guest house and apartment can accommodate four others for a total of eight. Full time English speaking manager will answer your questions and help with all of your needs We also provide housekeeping.

We can set you up for private or group surfing lessons and excursions. Want to have a private cook come in to prepare Mexican meals some of the time you are there? Or have a masseur set up a table on our terrace for an ocean view massage? These and even private yoga instruction can easily be arranged.

Designed with a deep appreciation for the natural beauty of Sayulita, Casa Brava is a bold and stunning contribution to Mexican tropical modern architecture and must be seen and experienced to be truly appreciated. It brings contemporary living into balance with its spectacular tropical setting.

A car isn't necessary but lots of folks do prefer to have a car or rent a golf cart while at the house. You can always get a $5 taxi to the house, day or night... they are waiting on the plaza. Ask us to help arrange transportation from the airport or we really like Gecko Car rental, and Europcar, During the summer months, roads can get slippery in the rain, so golf carts or 4-wheel drive are best. For golf carts, our renters really like Pacific Coast Golf Carts, Gabe Fernandez, #45-A Calle Revolucion

PLEASE NOTE: The property is not designed to be safe for children because it is built into a very steep hill and there are several areas with open railings above high drop offs. One unprotected side of the pool also sits above a high retaining wall. These elements make the house spectacular for adults, but unfortunately, they are also potentially dangerous for children.

What makes this house unique

Sayulita, like all of Mexico, is a lively town with many traditions and you might be lucky enough to arrive during one of the many festivals. In addition to hearing the waves crash and crickets chirping, you might also hear music, kids playing, the parrots screeching and roosters doing their wake up calls. Please feel free to contact me before booking if you are particularly sensitive to this atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful treat Casa Brava is. I enjoyed my stay there thoroughly. The views are beautiful, the accommodations are second to none. I love the architecture and the simplicity of the interior. So classy. The infinity pool is super relaxing, a great place to sit back have a drink and read a book. Loved it so much I am returning in November for my birthday. I have also referred others and they had a wonderful stay as well. Will continue to recommend it to people without hesitation.

Thanks and I look forward to my return.

Spectacular home with lovely view

  • 5 of 5

Modern home set on a steep hill above Sayulita with sliding glass for indoor/outdoor living. Relaxing by pool, watching sunset with a margarita was bliss.

Total relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Casa Brava! The house is exactly as pictured. Views are phenomenal! I didn’t realize we booked part of Easter week, the town was packed full of holiday vacationers. Didn’t bother us. The house is positioned very high up on a hill and we could hear “revelers” through out the valley, we live in an urban setting so outside noise is comforting. Once the week was over, all you could hear was the roosters in the morning. We slept with both set of door in the upper bedroom wide open, blissfully! The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, knives, forks, bowls and pans. We stopped at the Mega and loaded up for the week. Went into town did a few Tequila tastings, bought some street tacos, all good. There’s a great food stand that does grilled chicken at the bottom of the hill at the entry, to the right, yum!

Felipe, the caretaker was on the spot every morning taking care of the house and available for us to ask questions, but not intrusive.

Dale, the owner, is very responsive to questions and information. We are already planning our next visit to this amazing home! Thank you Dale!

The views are incredible, and the architecture is fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Brava to attend a destination wedding, but we are looking forward to a return visit just for us! Everything is as described, and Dale was very communicative and responsive. The house is nothing short of amazing, with beautiful views and comfortable furnishings. We did not rent a golf cart - the walk up the steep hill each day made us feel much better about all of the delicious food we were eating each day in town! The location is fantastic for bird watching, and we loved the soaring views of the town and ocean below. Highly recommend!

Beautiful place with great views!

  • 4 of 5

The house was pretty much as advertised. We were two couples, and the floor plan worked out very well for us. We spent a lot of time on the deck by the pool (but not in the pool, as the water was too cold for us.) There were no amenities that were lacking. The long driveway from the main road to the house was very steep and quite a trek-- after trying it a couple of times, my husband and I opted for taxis-- but younger, more fit renters might not object. The owner was very easy to work with. Definitely NOT a place for children, but other than that, we would certainly recommend this house.

Spectacular views, generous owners and helpful staff

  • 4 of 5

In the tropics and have to be ok with indoor outdoor living, which includes bugs...and if you're alright with that the views are spectacular, the owners go out of their way to make the process easy and the staff is friendly and helpful. If you have a chance take advantage of a home cooked meal at the house.

Heavenly peace

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, I have to thank you for all the love and thoughtful detail in creating such a vision for others to enjoy. Casa Brava has set the bar for me in life of vacation spaces and future places of vacation. I'm not sure if I will be able to stay anywhere else that will compare to the paradise experience you all have provided. From the housekeeping services to the friendly house manager Felipe, and the picture perfect views at every turn. I am forever grateful for this gift.

I got to celebrate my birthday here and will forever remember my time here and how much joy, happiness and true royalty I felt waking up every morning in meditation. I would recommend Casa Brava to the the world. It is a great place for folks of all walks of life. So amazing that I could have stayed at the house most of my vacation without seeing the rest of Mexico. Truly paradise, exceeds all pictures online, Casa Brava is a a vision that can only be understood by staying in this luxurious heaven at the peak Sayulita. Love, love, love, Casa Brava!!

Thank you!

Peace and light,

Niki Brown
