Excellent Vacation!
Our family of 11 just returned from a week at Casa Abuela and we had an amazing week. The house was absolutely perfect for our group size and had the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Juan and Juana are so gracious and the meals that Juan cooked were the absolute best meals we had all week! We would definitely stay here again!

Awesome view!
We were a group of 10 , and the Cassa was large enough for the whole bunch of us. It is very comfortable, clean, and the view is awesome. Thank you to Juan for his great cuisine, and his kindness answering all of our questions. Hope to return to Casa Abuela in a near futur.

Gorgeous house, quiet location, killer views
Our group of seven friends stayed here in February 2019, and absolutely loved everything about this house. Tons of space so we all had room to move; beautifully stocked kitchen; the deck was spacious with a huge table, a lovely pool, and beautiful sunset views; and the gated location was quiet, private, and very safe. We were a very active group and didn’t mind the 3/4 of a mile walk into town a few times a day, but know it was more of a trek than it looks on a map. Still we loved how quiet it was, and there were plenty of close-by stores, food, and drinks. (You didn’t have to walk all the way into the square.) Juan, our cook, was fantastic; his guacamole, salsa, and breakfasts really were the perfect touch to this place. And Michele was lovely to work with—fast to respond, provided all the necessary info in an organized fashion, and gave us helpful tips about getting into town from the airport. Five stars!

Stop Looking. Book this Home
This is our second year staying a week in this outstanding home and we really couldn't be more pleased. I'll start with the feature that by itself makes this place stand out: Juan and his family. This shows up on the website but it really should be front and center.

Juan is the consummate warm professional. When we returned from our trip last year we remarked that Juan is the type of person one would happily hire for almost literally any job and then want to spend time in conversation for the rest of the day. Juan is resourceful, warm, polite, generous, patient, kind. He legitimately seems to love children, taking a direct interest in each of our extended family's five, and even accepts our children's less desirable behaviors with grace. Juan not only anticipates needs but has the kind of social intelligence that makes you think it was your idea. Though his English is decent, he deliberately speaks to the two members of our group with some Spanish language proficiency because he can see that it makes us feel proud of our language skills.

Practically speaking, Juan (and/or his family):

- Cooks every breakfast OR lunch (Included in the rental price. Choose breakfast. Lunch is easy to find). This is not a couple of bowls of cereal and some muffins. We're talking multiple dishes of expertly prepared, delicious Mexican cuisine for your whole group timed to nearly the exact minute that you casually requested. He does the cleanup too.
- Makes a killer Margarita whenever requested
- Does all the housekeeping
- Solves basically any problem that might arise, usually within minutes
- Provides advice on the town of Sayulita
- For an additional $25-$30 per hour plus the cost of items required will...
--- Cook dinner (see my gushing notes on breakfast above). Though last year we went out a couple of times, this year we had Juan cook as many dinners as possible - it's that good.
--- Shop for groceries (our kids require an actual cow's worth of milk, for instance, and you almost always need ingredients for guac)
--- Watch any number of children (seriously, last year we left our 2 y/o, 3 y/o, and two 4y/o's with him and his family and the next day they all asked when he would come back. We kept our 3m/o with us but if we'd had some breast milk available, we might have chosen differently)

I will say it again: This place is worth the rental fee for Juan and his family alone. Just in case you need a few more reasons to stay, here are some highlights:

- The distance to town (10min walk) is just right and doesn't require motorized transport unless one of your party has an ambulatory disability - in which case you're in luck because this place has an elevator.
- The view is stunning. And not just occasionally. Gorgeous sunsets every night.
- The plan overall is open to the elements. You feel the breeze as walk the stairway, a 30' high thatched roof covers most of the top floor, everything is fresh all the time. If you're not careful, it's easy to spend the whole day here.
- Each bedroom can be closed and air-conditioned if desired (not that you need it during the high season when every night is essentially a perfect temperature.
- There is lots of public space - especially on the main top level - organized into zones so that large groups (we have 6 adults and 5 children under six) can either congregate or separate and never feel crowded.
- There is an infinity pool arranged to connect all of the zones (yes, it has a removable fence if you have young children)

So in summary: Stop looking. Book this home. Just don't take our week!

- The Reid/Warner Family

Let me start by saying thank you to Michele the home owner. We had originally booked the home for Oct. of 2017 but due to health reasons we had to cancel/re-book for the same week in 2018. She was gracious, understanding and more than accommodating. Thank you again.
Now on to the review.
All I can say is SPECTACULAR! This home is amazing in every way. From the views to the pool to the amenities, the pictures on the site don't do it justice! The only thing better than the home itself were the hosts Juan and Juana, they were wonderful. Juan is a truly skilled chef, his food was so delicious. We had him prepare breakfast for us every day and also come back and cook four dinners for us as well, and every one simply amazing. Juana was equally accommodating keeping the house sparkling and even doing laundry for us. The only thing we would do differently is have Juan prepare all our evening meals!

Our family couldn't recommend this place any more! Do yourself a favor and book your stay here asap!!

Amazing house, location and hosts!!!
We had the most amazing time at Casa Abuela. The house was even more stunning in person then in the pictures. Very comfortable and plenty of space. The house manager/hosts were absolutely wonderful! Juan and Juana and his entire family were so welcoming and cooked us the most delicious meals. They took such great care of us from directions, making sure we had enough groceries, recommendations, even booking private massages for us at the house. We didn't want to leave! This was the best possible way to spend my 40th birthday. We would love to come back again. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful house with us!

Better than the photos!
We loved this house, and it was perfect for our group of 9. The house is more beautiful in person than in the photos, and with the mix of open and closed spaces, plus two levels of open balconies, you could grab as much personal or group time as needed. We were well taken care of by the staff of Juan and his wife Juana. Juan is an excellent cook and served us better food than you could get in town--and breakfast and lunch is included. The owners left perfect instructions that made arrival a breeze (providing the name of a driver to pick us up at the airport) as well as tips on where to get everything you need, from activities, to shopping to restaurants. The house is equipped with wifi and even a Skype phone so you can be connected to the outside world if you like. Every detail is considered--just bring your personal toiletries. Town is a quick ten-minute walk away, so you could get to the beach and the town by foot, if you choose not to rent a car.

Fantastic Everything!
A beautiful house tastefully decorated with a gorgeous patio, very open air, great views. The house manager Juan and his family could not be more gracious and helpful. Incredible chefs as well. The house is on a hill, 3-5 min to beach, 5+ to restaurants, shops & main town. Rent a golf cart is a lot of fun. Not a house necessity unless someone has a mobility issue, walking very do-able. Sayulita is a charming town to top it off. Great low key vibe but plenty to do too. We were on an extended family trip with 8 adults & 5 kids (ages 4-15). Plenty of space. Absolutely loved our time there. 5 Stars
