Casa Ilusion underwent a complete remodel three summers ago. Having a swimming pool was the impetus for the project, but as we considered the possibilities it quickly became apparent that achieving the level of quality we aspired to meant undertaking a complete remodel of the house; new kitchen, all new bathrooms, redesigned floor plans in the bedrooms, new polished stone floors throughout, an expanded master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi and private sun deck. The living room is flanked with new built-in couches. A new beach palapa features the same layout, also with built-in couches. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with beautiful plantings of rare tropical plants. We think you will find Casa Ilusion a unique experience in Sayulita that will entice you to visit us again and again.
Casa Ilusion is THE PREMIER BEACHFRONT HOME IN SAYULITA. Unique beachfront home located on .8 acre of land with 74 palm trees and 120 feet of beachfront. It is the ONLY beachfront home, not condo, ideally located on the north side, and is perfectly accessible to the town center without having to climb any mountains. No car is necessary either. As soon as you enter Casa Ilusion, you will see through the house to the beautifully landscaped grounds, lush with magnificent palms, and to the ocean beyond. Relax under a palapa umbrella, or on a hammock by the ocean, with the sounds of the waves and the ocean breeze. Carry your board 200 yards up the beach to surf the left or right, or walk up the beach to dinner. This house is ideal for 4 adult couples.
In addition to the main house comfortably sleeping 6 itself, there is a beautiful Casita, just steps from the ocean, which comfortably sleeps 3 (King + Single bed). The Casaita is completely enclosed, A/C, a real "Honeymoon Casita" with a Full Bath, and a beautiful palapa style ceiling. In all, there is 4,000 square feet of living space.
Each spacious, air conditioned bedroom offers the highest level of comfort with high end luxury bedding, King beds, complete with their own private bathrooms.

Words can't explain how awesome this place is. The house is gorgeous with a hard to find 4 King bed bedrooms. All AC rooms with beautiful open spaces on the main and upper floors as well. Pool is gorgeous. Maid and yard crew are wonderful. House is a nice little walk from downtown but we chose golf carts which stay safe behind the automatic gates. Carlos the property manager is absolutely amazing and gets the best deals on Everything! He knows everyone and leverages that for you! All in all, this was our favorite ever vacation!

The Pictures Don't Even Do It Justice!
The place is incredible! The finishes and the luxury are above par - we absolutely loved it! Not to mention the amazing view that grabbed us from every area within the house - we felt like we were living in a post card! Additionally, Candi and the rest of the house staff - were fantastic. And, special kudos to Carlos - he was a great resource for information and services - it felt like we had been friends with him for years. We did not want for anything.
We traveled with two families of 4 (2 adults, 2 children), and a mother-in-law. Plenty of room to socialize as a group, and to escape to your own private retreat. We will definitely be back!!!
I want to thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home! I would rank it as the best full on family vacation we have ever had! We loved sayulita, we surfed, ate and chilled at Casa Illusion. Most importantly-my wife loved it and she is sooo deserving of the beautiful vacation we had!
Pilos I miss already! He took us surfing, he hung with us and really just became a "brother" for the week! At the end of the stay we met Lori and their children and my 7 year old had a great time with her kids..
Anyway-such great memories and we hope to return soon to your wonderful home and some more good times!
Thank you for all
There's a reason why all of these reviews are 5 Star!
We recently stayed at Casa Ilusion with my business partner and his family. 4 adults, 4 kids and it was absolutely perfect. The house is immaculate and very conveniently located to anything you would want to do in Sayulita. Unlike most rental properties this house is appointed with 4 Master bedrooms, each having something uniquely special about it and, we are already daydreaming about returning with 4 couples. The staff, Cande and Federico, went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable in the least intrusive way possible. Lori, the rental manager, arranged for kid friendly transportation to and from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, cribs for the younger kids, and an excursion with surf instructor Beto who transported us by Panga to a remote break. She also made arrangements for a chef to prepare breakfasts and dinners at the house most nights. Halo was outstanding! Very reasonably priced, and an extraordinary chef. I don't typically travel in this fashion but with 4 kids it was truly the most enjoyable and relaxing experience and I cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful house, best location
We stayed over Thanksgiving at casa ilusion. 2 families - 4 kids between 6 & 9. As with the other review, a wonderful house, location & experience.
The one thing i'd add here is the Sayulita Life folks were wonderful to deal with. i'd give them an A+ which i have never said about my experiences booking through vrbo or airbnb.
Casa Isusion is an incredible palace on the beach....if you are seeking a world class experience.....choose Casa Ilusion

Our family loved this house. So comfortable and we all had our own space. It was great to jump in the pool after a hot day or night on the beach or in town. The owner even had a new TV and sound system installed while we were there. Although, we thought we wouldn't use it, it was also nice to relax with the kids with a movie, or have the music playing while at the pool.
Best beach front property in Sayulita! Property is immaculate. The most absolutely perfect place to stay.
Casa Illusion, I cannot say enough good things about this place. Beachfront home within about a 5 minute walk to town. The location is prime! Never saw the house before the renovations but all I can say is WOW! The view is one of the best I have seen worldwide. Our driver was right on time at the airport with our names on a sign and was able to stop at the local Mega store to pick up alcohol and food. Lorri the manager had everything set up for us perfectly. They have people come in everyday at 10AM to clean up the house, change towels etc. and just to make sure everything is up to your standards and working properly. The WIFI is amazing and will even work when you are down on the beach front(we used my BOSE wifi system down on the beach everyday) We will be back to stay at Casa Illusion, I can assure you that. I can say nothing bad about Casa Illusion or the town of Sayulita.

We didnít think it could get better but it did!
I dare anyone to find a better property than this in all of Sayulita. This is our familyís third year in a row staying at this wonderful estate. We always loved the house and the grounds were amazing but the new remodel is truly a transformation that must be seen to believe. Everything has been updated! The groundskeeper and maid are there everyday meticulously cleaning and care-taking this exotic property. Lori and her staff are so friendly and helpful that my family considers it our home away from home. We will be coming back again very soon.

Best house on the beach!
I would highly recommend Casa Ilusion to my friends and family. The furnishings are exquisite, and the grounds are meticulously cared for. We felt as though we were in a magazine shoot. There was daily cleaning, and all of our needs were met throughout our stay. The house manager arranged for a manicurist to come to the house and also for a private yoga lesson on the beach. We will definitely stay at Casa Ilusion when we return to Sayulita.
