The villa is located at "Villas Rana Verde", Sayulita's premiere estate property on a beautiful gently sloped hillside with 360-degree views of the ocean and jungle, and only 75 yards from the ocean, in a tropical paradise in wonderful, sunny Sayulita! We are across the street from the ocean, just a 2 minute walk on cobblestone to the sand. We are in the exclusive "Pedregoso" neighborhood on the north side of Sayulita directly across the street from Villa del Oso. There are 3 villas on the property, but each one is separate and private from each other. Each villa has its own private pool, gourmet kitchen, living area, gardens, etc. In fact Casa Rana Verde has 2 private ocean view pools that are connected by a cascading waterfall. The wading pool is perfect for children and is right next to the adult pool. Nothing is shared between the 3 villas except for the gated entry and cobblestone parking area.

The villa contains three bedrooms and five bathrooms offering accommodations for up to nine people. Guests are assured tranquility and peace of mind during their vacation in this architecturally designed villa. Casa Mikayla and Casa Pajaro are close by, but located behind landscaping and walls to insure maximum privacy for all 3 villas. Make sure to view slide show of the panoramic ocean views and the incredible swimming pools in our tropical garden. The living area with its panoramic ocean views and huge gathering space is a great place to meet with the whole group, and dining there is a joy. We live right next door to the estate to insure that your vacation will be all you expect it to be. Our driver can pick you up at the airport in an air conditioned Suburban stocked with cold drinks. Our cook makes the best Mexican food in all of Mexico! We offer any or all meals to your group. Everyone loves our cook's meals. Wireless internet is included and we have free phone calls to and from the US and Canada. There is a free laundry that is solely for guests useage.

We are located about 1/2 mile from the village in an area of private villas away from the all night noise of the village with its roosters, soccer field events and cantinas. Your quiet night of sleep is assured. The short 10 minute walk to town can be along the pristine, sandy beach or a low traffic paved road.

This fully-furnished home features ocean and jungle views from every room. Enjoy our incredible living area that is 60 feet across while watching the sun set over the ocean! We have one of the best ocean views in Sayulita! All rooms are furnished with the finest amenities such as Ralph Lauren towels, 300 thread count all cotton sheets and all cotton linens, comfortable pillows, best mattresses, televisions with DVD players and a library of movies, iPod players, Guatemalan fabrics for all curtains and pillow covers, furnishings that will allow you all the comforts you need while enjoying our incredible villa! Our kitchens are fully stocked with as many small appliances, frying pans, wine glasses, coffee cups, plates, bowls, utensils, etc. as you have in your own homes. Everything in the kitchen is in abundance. All the kitchenware is matching Fiestaware.

Remember many villas discourage children, but we cater to kids, we have cribs (2) and highchair,  so no need to rent them. Our kiddie pool attaches to the main pool connected by a cascading waterfall. The kids love it, the parents love it even more! We have babysitting services available. Our driver has multiple childseats for the trip from the airport.

The beach across the street is one of the most pristine, sandy, private beaches you have ever seen, with the cleanest water in Sayulita. There is great surf fishing on the beach right in front of the estate. The fisherman regularly catch snook, sea bass, grouper and many other varieties. It is not unusual to be the only person on the beach for 1/4 mile in either direction. It is a nesting grounds for Leatherback turtles who can be seen in the early morning and late evenings hours during the summer months laying their eggs or hiding the nests before their return to the ocean.

The best tropical garden in Sayulita is at your doorstep within private, gated grounds that feature over 20 varieties of palm trees, plumeria trees, many varieties of hibiscus, many varieties of bouganvilla, sweet jasmine everywhere, birds of paradise, gardenia, corona, maguey, abundant catii, almond trees, jamaica, bananas, papayas, Mandarin oranges, Persian limes, and much more.

Without even leaving the estate you can view hummingbirds, orioles, tanagers, caliches, parakeets, parrots, woodpeckers, chachalacas, trogons, hawks, honeycreepers, warblers, and much, much more. There is an even larger abundance if you venture into the nearby jungle. This is a truly unsurpassed bird-lovers delight! Meander through our many cobblestone pathways into a tropical botanical paradise seldom seen on private grounds.

We recently rented all 3 villas, with 7 adults and 5 kids under the age of 5. The main outdoor living room was perfect for keeping track of the kids and feeding them because it has gates to keep them contained but they could run and play. It was so nice to have different pool options so we didn't have to be quiet while the different naps were going on. We could easily walkt to and from the beach even with toys and the villas had cooler and chairs including backpack straps to make it easy. The car service was great and didn't even charge us for the 1 1/2 hour Mega mart run on the way from the airport. They even brought carseats. The pack n plays were perfect for the kiddos. Plenty of sun and shade options. love being at the peaceful beautiful north end of the beach instead of right in town, and also thought the walk to twon was perfect for alittle exercise. Barry was available by phone for anything we needed and checked in on us a few times. The decor, colors, art, bedding, tiles, and design made us really feel like we went ot Mexico and got away. We really had a perfect time and would love to go back soon!

Living a Dream

My brother rented Casa Rana Verde and Mikayla for the week of my niece's wedding. When we walked up to the terrace, we were speechless. The view of the ocean and Sayulita a short distance away is breathtaking. That terrace became the gathering place for the 10 of us, a place to visit over breakfast or share cocktails at sunset. In the late afternoons, after sightseeing and shopping, people also gravitated to the beautiful pool or took the short walk to the beach. Casa Rana Verde offers a variety of spots to visit or just enjoy a book and each of them has its own beauty. The rooms at Casa Rana are very private and each is uniquely decorated. Many of the artworks are for sale. In fact, two members of our group took lovely pieces home. The rooms are separate enough that the Casa works well for a larger group. But because of the layout, it could accommodate a smaller group just as easily. We had two of the units and never saw the couple in the third, who had their own entry and pool. While Casa Rana Verde is an impressive property, what really makes it stand out are the people who run it. Barry, the owner, lives next door and checks in often to make sure everything is okay. Lucia and her helper in the kitchen are fantastic cooks and are available to prepare delicious meals. We entertained large groups four different nights, including 20 people the day after the wedding, and they took care of everything. Angel, who took us back and forth from the airport, was prompt and personable. The gardener and cleaning crew also did an excellent job. When I review a place, I try to also mention any negatives that I noticed. In this case, there were none. I would come back to Casa Rana in a heartbeat.

Perfect Sayulita Vacation

Our three-generation family stayed at Casa Rana Verde and had a fabulous vacation. The location of the house -- close to the beach and town, but outside of the fray -- was ideal. We loved the design of the palapa and houses, with each of us enjoying privacy and togetherness that the property afforded. Barry and Connie were perfect hosts. We felt pampered and looked after yet without interference. Every detail was accounted for on the well-maintained and -appointed property and with the booking. We loved the palm trees around the terraced pool, the home-cooked meals by Lucia, the artful touches in the ample rooms, the super-comfortable mattresses and soft sheets. There was room for doing everything (yoga, entertaining, cooking) and nothing at all. This place would be great for couples, a group of friends, and families of all ages like us. We will be back!

Gracious living above Sayulita Bay

We arrived at Casa Rana Verde just in time for our first sunset. What a view and what a great property. Our rental was divided on 3 levels making a visit to Sayulita with a friend and another couple very comfortable and fun. Barry provided everything we needed - a great kitchen, a wonderful housekeeper and all the amenities from boogie boards and beach chairs to yoga mats. We took his suggestion to have Lucia cook us dinner one night - what a treat! We had a wonderfully restful and fun week. We will definitely return!

Relaxing post wedding vacation

Guest: Kay (Hampton, Virginia)
Date of Stay: 05/22/11 Review Submitted: 07/05/11

We came here for a relaxing post wedding vacation with 6 adults. We chose Casa Rana Verde because of its authenic Mexican look, beautiful views and grounds and privacy for each couple. It did not disappoint. Barry is willing to help you with anything and Lucia and Chuey take excellent care of the house and grounds. We had excellent meals prepared by Lucia with lots of leftovers. The pool area is perfect as you can sit in the shade or sun and comfortable chairs are provided.There is a large area to meet in the outdoor living room and eat a relaxing meal while you watch the sun set. The only thing to consider if you are coming here is your physical condition. It is built on a hill and if you want to walk to the beach or town, it does require you to be in good shape. We loved it as it provided some much needed exercise while enjoying the foods and beverages of Mexico. A good walking/running trail is close by or you can run into town and enjoy a nice breakfast while there. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation this is the place.

Owner response:Thanks for the great review! FYI: most all properties in Sayulita have some slope. Ours is relatively minor. The slope is about 30% and is 30-40 yards in length. For most people this has not been a problem.

Villas Rana Verde

Date of Stay: 01/30/11 Review Submitted: 02/22/11

For anyone interested in hosting a large group in Sayulita, especially for the purposes of a retreat, this may be your place! I recently held a movement retreat at Villas Rana Verde in early February, 2011. I can confidently say that, after my many months of research and deliberating, I made the best choice. We were a group of 17 (15 of whom stayed on the property; 2 people stayed up the road at Casa Susana) Everything about the setting was ideal for our purposes. The property is very quiet, (but for the wonderfully exotic sounds of the crashing waves and tropical birds) and is a perfect distance from town. Moreover, there is plenty of privacy and quiet between casas, and even between rooms within the casas. Having multiple kitchens proved very helpful with such a large group. The rooms and grounds, evidently very clean and well-maintained, were all very much enjoyed by my participants. Most significant for our purposes was the terrace: we made very good use of it, for breakfast first thing in the morning, dance and meditation, general hanging out and sunning, beautiful sunset dinners, and laying under the stars until the wee hours. We were able to play music (with great acoustics under the palapa!) and could turn on lights and candles as it grew dark. Lucia (the cook/maid) and Chuy (the gardener/maintenance man) are helpful and responsive. Lucia and her crew of lovely ladies made us breakfast each morning, and 3 dinners - they obviously contributed a great deal to our experience, such that received a few standing ovations from our lively group :) Owner Barry is committed to his guests having a satisfying stay. I found him to be quick to respond to my (many!) emails leading up to my trip, and generally thorough in the information he shared. The one glitch of this trip was that Barry was out of town for the bulk of our stay, namely upon our arrival; I had a few surprises during our stay that would have been much less challenging had he been around, or even had I known in advance that he wouldn't be there. That said, Barry was still in quick contact with me by phone (when in range) to help me handle any situations as they arose, and went out of his way to make sure my guests (and I) were happy, even from afar. It was notable to me that most of my participants commented that the property was ideal, that "it couldn't have been more perfect", and that some of them even plan to return with their own guests. I highly recommend Rana Verde!

Owner response:Although this review is glowing, I want clear up a couple of comments. First, although I did not arrive until the 3rd day of a 7 day stay, my daughter and manager who live next door to the estate were here for any questions that arose, of which the client made me or my manager (who checked in with her twice in the first day) aware of no glitches. Also, of the over 30 emails I received from this guest, all were answered within 2-3 hours, usually immediately, by phone. We try very hard to give the utmost service, and pride ourselves in our determination to give the best possible response to our clients needs. This guest booked the estate for next year!

Thanksgiving at Casa Rana Verde Compound

Guest: Bibi (Boulder, Colorado, USA)
Date of Stay: 11/20/10 Review Submitted: 01/02/11

We rented the three casas (Rana Verde, Pajaro and Mikayla) for a week over Thanksgiving to celebrate my husband's 60th. There were 14 of us including kids, spouses and grandkids. It was a FABULOUS experience! From the moment we were picked up by Angel at the airport (Barry arranged transportation for all of us from and to the airport), our needs were totally met. The houses are set in such a way that everyone could have privacy and yet gather on the large palapa to be together. We chose to have Lucia cook all our breakfasts and dinners and either ate leftovers or went to town for lunch (Chocobanana was a big hit). We got to choose our menus and Lucia (and Rosie) did an astounding job of figuring out how much food to serve for all of us- she even accommodated our various food allergies by serving a dish made two ways- one regular and one without, say, dairy. Everything was delicious! The compound is located at the quiet north end of Sayulita within easy walking distance of town. The beach is a short walk away and even though it was Thanksgiving week, it was so uncrowded that it felt like our own private beach. Connie and Barry live next door and made sure everything was perfect. Their attention to detail was amazing in every way. The furnishings and design of the place are unique and fun. The quality of the linens and towels are excellent. There are beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards available. The entire family has decided that our next family reunion will be in Sayulita at the Casa Rana Verde compound!

We rented the whole compound to celebrate birthdays with a large group of friends and it couldn't have been more perfect! All the houses (Pajaro, Mikayla, Rana Verde) were absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed relaxing, playing games and dining together in the palapa after eating several meals that Lucia cooked for us, there's just nothing like eating a freshly made tortilla seconds after it's been pressed! The pools were a nice break from the sandy beaches, but the beach was so easy to get to that we went every day, several times a day. And it was so convenient to walk to town for breakfast and surfing. When I go back to Sayulita, I will for sure be staying at the Villas Rana Verde again! Working with Barry to arrange everything was very smooth and professional. If you're reading this for advice - look no further Casa Rana Verde is where it's at! Have a great vacation!!!

Thank you Barry and Connie! Our family just spent an amazing 10 days at Rana Verde. Our room opened out to the private pool that has the perfect amount of shade and sun. It also is great for little and big swimmers! Our kids spent ALL day in the pool and were entirely happy! The upstairs palapa had beautiful views of the ocean and town of Sayulita. It was the perfect place to hang out, read, play cards and games and enjoy a meal. Lucia cooked for a large group of friends one night and it was the best authentic Mexican food we've ever had. We hope to be back next year!

We just had a large group stay at Casa Rana Verde, Pajaro and Mikayla. With out a doubt this was the most SPECTACULAR place in Sayulita!! When we arrived at the airport we had two air conditioned suburbans pick us up with ice cold pacifico's in the cooler. Then when we arrived at our Casa's and we where completely blown away! Our little paradise in the jungle. Each casa was decorated beautifully all of the bedrooms unique and gorgeous. The views where incredible with a sunset that will leave you speechless. I recommend having Lucia prepare your meals for you as well. We are all in the restaurant business and where blown away by her dishes. We had breakfast everyday but Sunday and dinner four of our seven nights. I recommend the chili rellenos. The beach is just a two or three minute walk. They have portable beach chairs and umbrellas so you can set up your own area away from people. The pools are great too. The main pool is surrounded by palm trees. If you get too hot you can swim to the shade of a palm tree. It was fantastic. Especially since all of us where pale faced gringos from a mountain town. If you want to luxury and a peaceful stay this is the place. We will definitely be back...

Wonderful stay in the bungalows Mikayla
What a magnificent place and a wonderful reception! We managed to get lost on the road coming but the owner, Barry, happily guided me through the town via phone - he was there when we arrived and got us settled into the most gorgeous place I've been. There were four of us having a ladies' vacation and it was perfect. A chilled bottle of wine awaited us - all the towels you would ever need, coffee for the morning, a perfectly appointed kitchen and two bedrooms with king bed each and a lounge that could be a bed. Plenty of hot water. The beds are very comfortable (always iffy when traveling), the rooms are round and decorated with gorgeous taste. The many thoughtful details and perfect location made this a fantastic vacation for all of us. We plan on coming back every year!

Highly recommend
We stayed here with three couples for a long weekend. It was much more beautiful than the pictures and everything went very smoothly. The common area is huge and has an amazing view. All the bedrooms were very private and the kitchen was well stocked. We spent a lot of time lounging by the pool and really relaxed. You will love it here! Angel picked us up at the airport and that made our trip very easy. Having the owner nearby was reassuring but we felt like we had lots of privacy and the run of the place.

Amazing home with all you could want
This is our second time staying at Casa Rana Verde and it is amazing. The home is laid out perfectly for our group with separate bedroom suites for privacy and a huge ocean view common area with kitchen for getting together. Barry and Connie are such gracious hosts and provide everything you could want. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool, they were in it every chance they could get and it must be the most beautiful in all Sayulita. We had such a great time and can't wait to return. Thanks so much.

Can't wait to return!
We just returned from an absolutely wonderful family vacation at Casita Mikayla and Casa Rana Verde, both owned by the same people and located within steps of one another. We needed the space that both houses provided and it worked out beautifully. The grounds are gorgeous and lush. The Casa and Casita are appointed beautifully. So many gorgeous things to look at in every corner, and amazing views from any angle. There were 7 of us staying, but the places could have easily accommodated more. It feels like you just stepped into Architectural Digest Magazine! We're already planning our return trip next year and have decided to make it an annual sojourn. The owners live next door, which we loved because if we needed anything, they were more than happy to help. And they had great suggestions for shopping, eating, surfing and walking. Can't wait to return!

Just so lovely!
We stayed at Casa Rana Verde in October, the weather was still hot and we were so happy with our pool! Even after being at the beach we would walk back and get in the pool, it was just so lovely! Beautiful views from the whole property, the upper patio was perfect. There was lots of room and privacy for all and we loved all of the great art in all the rooms and baths. The kitchen was so fun, we are people who cook a lot and it was a great spot for making meals. Thanks again to Barry for a great stay, we can't wait to come back!

Perfect for a YOGA RETREAT!
Casa Rana Verde is an exceptional choice for a yoga retreat. Our group delighted in the myriad birdsongs and warm ocean breezes as we practised yoga under the airy palapa. The participants' rooms were charming and well-appointed, providing safe, private rejuvenation within easy walking distance to Sayulita's vibrant town core. The large, communal kitchen was a wonderful gathering spot for our group to come together, share stories and savour our incredible meals. Thank you so much, Barry and staff, for your care in ensuring our week at Casa Rana Verde unfolded beyond expectation. My personal wish is this becomes an annual event. Best wishes, Alison

Awesome place!
This was our first time to Sayulita! I heard about it many years ago from a man in the airport, so I put it in my list of places I wanted to go! We loved it! It's a great getaway, small fun town, the local people were great and accommodating, there are none of those mega resorts or hotels in Sayulita, just kind of down home and laid back! The food everywhere we ate was excellent, you won't find Chilis here! Wether it was from someone set up on the street, a restaurant or from one of the many home restaurants! The churros cooked along the road for 10 pesos were my favorite! And they were super reasonable, 3 of us could eat and drink for $30-$40! Rent a table and chair downtown at the beach, enjoy shrimp on a stick, cheap beer and awesome boogie boarding! We chartered Ceaser twice for fishing, whale watching and spear fishing! We caught loads of fish, saw lots of whales up close and had a blast spear fishing! For $250 a day for 4 people it's a bargain, plus we had fresh fish all week! I can't wait to spearfish again, it was a blast! We also did the horse ride thru the jungle and up and down the beach! Amazing fun for $25! The beach in front of the villa is gorgeous! Continuos waves, beautiful sand, hardly any people, just gorgeous! I brought a pole and fished the beach several times, I never caught anything, but other people did, next time I'll have the right lures ( large silver or blue crocodiles)! Oh that's right I am supposed to be reviewing the villas, they are super nice, well equipped, clean, spacious and surrounded by a jungle! The ocean is minutes away and the town is about a 10 minute walk. Barry's staff were there daily cleaning and picking up after us. Rosa cooked a delicious meal for us on day two, it was nummy! Overall, it was terrific vacation, Barry's villas are awesome, we always felt safe, ( don't listen to all the media garbage about Mexico, it's safer than most American cities), the weather was perfect 80 and a slight breeze (hawaii can keep their wind) and everything was very reasonable! We have told all of our friends about Sayulita and we plan on going back in February 2014!!!

Perfect for our first trip to Sayulita!
We had to book Casa Rana Verde last minute because our previous rental fell through. It must have all been meant to be, we couldnt have been happier with our stay at Casa Rana Verde. Even with the last minute planning, Barry was extremely helpful from start to finish. He answered emails before and during our stay within a few hours and always answered all my questions. The house far exceeded our expectations. The view was incredible from the very large terrace patio, you could hear the waves crashing all day long. The beach was a few minute walk and the pools were just the right temperature. It was off season and warm when we were there, but the shaded pool area made our stay that much better. The kiddie pool was a huge hit for the kids we had with us under 2 years of age. It was just the right height for them to stand in and splash around. We had enjoyed a very tasty meal from Lucia and our driver Angel was prompt and a very safe driver to and from the airport. Barry arranged all this beforehand and made our trip very stress free. I would highly recommend Casa Rana Verde to anyone visiting Sayulita!!!!

Casa Rana Verde is Paradise!
We stayed at Casa Rana Verde for a week in April. There were two families in our group, 4 adults and our 5 kids, ages 10-21. We could not have been happier with the location, hospitality, and accommodations. Barry, the owner, had a friendly staff ready to transport, shop and cook wonderful meals, and help with any area activities we participated in. Upon our arrival at the airport, we were welcomed by Barry's driver, Angel, ready and waiting in roomy, air conditioned Suburban, stocked with cold Pacificos. What a great way to start our trip! He stopped at a large grocery store on our way to Sayulita and waited while we stocked up on necessities for a couple of days. We continued on the 45 min. beautiful drive to Sayulita and arrived at Casa Rana Verde. It is truly stunning. Located on the quiet north end of town, it is a perfect setting. Our families had roomy, beautifully decorated, seperate suites, that offered space and privacy. We could gather together in the large kitchen, pool area, and sweeping patio overlooking the bay. The first night, (I would recommend this idea), we had Lucia and Rosie, Barry and Connie's housekeepers, cook our dinner for us. Guacamole, chili rellenos, bbq'd shrimp and chicken, rice and beans, and tortillas. They did the shopping, cooked and bbq'd, served and cleaned, while we sipped cocktails on the patio and took in the scenery. Not only is the view from this villa beautiful, but the grounds are impeccably maintained. The variety of tropical trees, flowers, and birds are delightful. As I mentioned, the location is perfect. Many other villas are on steep hills. Casa Rana Verde is situated on a very comfortable, easy to walk, road to town and the main surfing beach. There is a beautiful beach down a cobblestone path right across from the villa, as well. Barry was readily available, he lives in the villa next door, to answer any questions and make arrangements with his staff for our various activities. Our stay could not have been more comfortable and relaxing. We will definitely be back. In fact, we loved Sayulita so much, we just put our house in San Diego on the market and we're moving down! Thank you, Barry and Connie and Casa Rana Verde, for making our trip a dream come true!
