The space

Casa Brava Guesthouse in Sayulita is a large, one-bedroom private guest house with stunning ocean views and a private dipping pool. Stunning modern home located in one of the premier locations, walk 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 180 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 salt-water dipping pool which seems to flow endlessly into the sea, or you might fall into the hammock or just and read or nap. It's 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.

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 the covered patio, 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 bed features 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and makes a perfect spot to relax. If you can't completely leave the outside world behind, there is super fast WIFI throughout.

Full time English speaking manager will answer your questions and help with all of your needs. 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.

It's just a 10 minute walk to both the plaza and the beach but returning home you'll have a very steep hill for the last block so give yourself a couple of extra minutes for that:)

  •  1 bedroom / 1 bathroom (sleeps 2)
  •  King sized bed with 100% Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets
  •  A/C in bedroom and ceiling fans throughout

  •  10-minute walk to beach and town (bit more returning uphill)
  •  Full-time English speaking manager and housekeeping staff
  •  Private chef and masseur available

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 Sixt car rental. 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 Riviera Golf Carts.

Better than expected
Very informative on the surroundings, recommendations on car service, and the property. The pictures do not do justice of the actual views - views from the place are fantastic. The place does sit atop a good size hill so we’d recommend the rental of a golf cart during your stay as it makes it easier to get up and down. The location is nice because it’s a bit quieter than being directly downtown. We really enjoyed our stay and the ease of everything thanks to the due diligence done by the host. We’d recommend staying at Casa Brava!

5 stars all around!!!
Amanda’s place made our trip! As beautiful as the surroundings are we found ourselves mostly wanting to spend as much time with each other there. Everyone involved was a pleasure to work with from Amanda to their local host Laura and the suggested driver Fidel. You couldn’t ask for a better location. The view from up on the hill, the proximity to town and the beach and the modern yet comfortable architectural design plus private dipping pool took our trip to the next level. We will definitely be returning. Hopefully to secure the whole house and bring friends and family. And unless you really like getting your steps in vertically, I would rent a golf cart.Also I strongly suggest the agave experience with Moses at the bottom of the hill across the street. Amanda will have all of the recommendations. A special thanks to housekeeping and to Fidel for all of the help with transportation that we required during our short stay. We did not have the easiest schedule. Casa Brava es muy Bueno!5⭐

Can’t recommend it enough!
This house was the cherry on top of an incredible vacay. I cannot recommend staying here more if you’re planning on visiting Sayulita. My husband and I never wanted to leave! The view and general openness of the house is spectacular, and to be honest just being in the house was a vacation in itself. But be warned, the hill is no joke. A golf cart is an absolute necessity in my opinion LOL. We had considered renting a car, but we’re so glad we didn’t. Sayulita is definitely not the town for a car. Thank you for a great stay!!

Best Views
Best views in all of Sayulita! The place was very clean and private. The way up to the location is the only problem, but a golf cart or taxi will do the trick. Overall a great experience and would stay here again!!

Lovely spot!
"This was my husband and my first time staying in Sayulita. We have been to Mexico several times, and had a wonderful time exploring this town. This property was perfect for us. We wanted ocean views, a little away from the hustle and bustle of the town, in a secure location with a full kitchen. This checked all the boxes for us. The owner was extremely efficient, keeping me up to date on the latest Covid requirements for that part of Mexico, answering all of my questions, and making sure I had everything I needed to communicate with Laura, the house manager. I have stayed places where it is hard to get ahold of the owner of a property--not so with Dale. He emailed me back right away. Laura was an absolute sweetheart. We stayed in contact the whole week we were down there, she had great recommendations and helped us whenever we needed anything. She checked in on us via text often and I am so grateful for her warmth and knowledge. The property was very clean, the AC unit in the room worked really well and the views were beautiful.

The dipping pool was a little chilly as the casita where we stayed is shaded most of the day. That didn't bother us, but I think it's worth noting. The hill up to Casa Brava is not a small one. I read some reviews about it being a little steep, but didn't realize HOW steep it was. You need a golfcart that can handle the terrain or strong legs to get you up to Casa Brava. My husband and I are in good shape and it was still a daunting task every time we stepped out haha :D I will say, if you can budget in a golfcart for daily use or don't mind grabbing a taxi to take you back, that's the way to go! The taxis were plenty and it was about $3 US for a ride. The walk into town is about 10 mins and about 5 mins more to get to the beach. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend Casa Brava to anyone!"

Wonderful time at Casa Brava
We had such a wonderful time at Casa Brava- Dale was the ultimate host, giving us great recommendations for restaurants, beaches and the best massage therapist!! The house is perfectly located, close enough to town to walk in but removed enough to feel like a private oasis. Comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, easy check. We will be back.
