Architecturally stunning and very comfortable
Casa Calabaza is a gorgeous amazing home. It is located on the quiet north end of Sayulita very close to a lovely quiet beach. The home's architecture is stunning and the open air concept living area is a wonderful way to enjoy the warm climate and connect to nature. I loved the sound of the waves crashing!! The bedroom is large and the air conditioning works great. Nanci is a wonderful and very friendly host. She was very helpful and welcoming! Her artwork is absolutely beautiful and is displayed throughout the home. The kitchen is spacious and lovely and there is even a full sized washer and dryer. I rented a golf cart which made it easy to get to and from the town center. I loved my stay here.

10/10 Recommend
Casa Calabaza feels like paradise. We loved the relaxed style of the property and its proximity to the North Beach was incredible. We woke to the sound of crashing waves and drifted into deep sleep listening to crickets and tree frogs. Nanci warmly welcomed us to the property and was alwas available to assist us with anything at the Casa or questions about Sayulita. We appreciated her recommendations for transportation and local dining. Can't wait to return.

Everything was perfect
The beach in front of the house was spectacular and the host's recommendations on restaurants super appreciated. Very clean, amazing views, close to everything yet very private ... 'glamping' at its finest. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something very unique! What a beautiful little town! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

This bright, airy space is covered with gorgeous art work and ocean views. Everything you could need is waiting; beach umbrella, beach chairs, coolers, even an rain umbrella, which we needed. I even spotted a sewing kit. Place is clean and well stocked with interesting books as well. The owner's recommendation for a golf cart rental was spot on that included delivery to the house. The driveway entrance/exit onto the very steep downhill road is not for the faint of heart.

Would definitely recommend
Casa Calabaza made for the perfect getaway. Nanci's home was well appointed and in a great location about a 15 min walk from town. We loved relaxing by the pool and in the open areas. 2 minutes away is the gorgeous beach.

Great Stay, incredible home!
Returning from 5 incredible nights here. In the quiet north end, the location was perfect for a barefooted, stress-free vacation in Sayulita. The location is really perfect, with cool ocean breezes and the sound of the surf from every room. Far enough north to at peace, but an easy walk to everything (although a golf cart helps for quick trips in and out of the town center). The layout of the house is perfect for open-air living, with great views of the jungle and the ocean beyond the palms and fig trees. We loved watching all the birds (as well as the giant iguanas) feeding in the trees that surround the house. The layout is spacious, with lots of distinct areas to relax, either in the sun or shade and the splash pool came in handy during the heat of midday. This really is outdoor living…5 nights and we never closed our bedroom doors. Mosquito nets over the beds and the ocean air made for super comfy sleeping. Nanci’s art is thoughtfully displayed throughout the home, offering a level of sophistication that is rare in rental units. The kitchen is super well equipped, with a big fridge, powerful stove and dish washer, as well as lots of little extras (olive oil, spices, nice wine glasses) making self catering super easy. Nanci lives on the property and she was a lovely host and helpful with recommendations and tips. Overall, great stay!
