The space

CASA BRAVA has welcomed hundreds of guests through its doors since 2011. We purchased the house in March 2023 and are now the new owners of this amazing tropical getaway. If you have stayed at Brava before you will also appreciate that Laura, the house manager, continues to run the day-to-day operations of the house without skipping a beat.

Casa Brava is a stunning modern home perched high above the laid-back surf town of Sayulita. Its sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the jungle, and the city are simply breathtaking! And the spectacular sunsets from the roof, the decks, the pool or the hammocks are sure to stay etched in your memory forever!

Casa Brava consists of 3 units and can accommodate a total of 8 people should you wish to rent the entire property.
- MAIN HOUSE (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 guests, private infinity pool)
- GUEST HOUSE (1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 guests, private plunge pool)
- STUDIO (2-story loft, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 guests, private balcony)

When you decide to break free from the magnetic pull of this tropical oasis you’ll discover that it’s only a 10 minute walk into town or to the beach where plenty of eating, drinking, shopping, surfing and people-watching options await.

- 4 bedrooms
- 4 bathrooms
- Infinity pool
- Plunge pool
- Ocean and Jungle views
- King size beds with 100% Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets
- A/C in bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout
- 3 Full kitchens with stainless appliances, blender, microwave, coffee maker (one kitchen in each house.)
- Built-in audio system
- Purified water system throughout the entire house
- High speed WiFi Internet access
- 100% cotton towels, and beach towels provided
- 10 minute walk to beach and town (bit more returning uphill)
- Full time English speaking manager and housekeeping staff
- Private chef and masseur available

Our English-speaking manager will answer your questions and help with all of your needs. Let us arrange transportation from the airport. Want to have a private cook come in to prepare Mexican meals one or two days that 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. Please email with any questions.

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 decks, patios, the garden and pool area. Every individual detail was carefully chosen to complement and enhance the unique and comfortable design, such as the onyx walls, honed granite counters, and custom made furniture. Whether the perfect spot to relax is in one of the king sized beds featuring high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, the hammocks or the chaise lounges, that is entirely up to you to decide. If you can't completely leave the outside world behind, there is super fast Wi-fi throughout.

Guest access

The house is totally private. It has exclusive use of its own infinity pool, plunge pool and walled garden

Other things to note:

There are numerous locations at Casa Brava where we have chosen not to use a railing or barrier in order to optimize the lines to the sea. There are many high drop offs with little or no railings, so children under 16 are not allowed.

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 Gaby Golf Carts.

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:)

It is customary in Mexico to leave the staff a tip when you leave. We suggest $5 - $10 per day and all tips are shared.

Additionally, Casa Brava can be rented as a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom as well as the 1 bedroom Guesthouse.

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.

I wouldn't hesitate to return and highly recommend it.
Our first impression of Casa Brava was walking in and seeing the beautiful pool overlooking the spectacular view, just fantastic! The casa has a great open layout with a large dining/kitchen area stocked with everything we required for our 6 day stay. It has large doors and windows that open to allow the breeze to blow through the house which keeps the heat down when the breeze is blowing. The two bedrooms are large and comfortable with great beds and again, great views. The master suite layout is well thought out with two sinks, one being in shower area and other in the dressing area, making it nice while getting ready. Master also has 2 large lanais overlooking town/ocean with hammocks, we spent several hours swaying in them while reading, taking in the view and napping. Pool was fantastic, with an infinity edge overlooking the ocean and a shallow area perfect for reading in and a deeper area to jump into. Deck area was large with comfortable lounge chairs and an outdoor shower we used to rinse off after a day at the beach or town. No matter what we were doing during the day we made sure we were back at Casa Brava to watch the sunset while floating in the pool. The owner Dale was wonderful, from our initial booking to the day we left, he was very accommodating to our needs and shared lots of useful local knowledge about Sayulita. On several occasions he went out of his way to pass on daily Sayulita events that he thought we might be interested in seeing and even brought us a much appreciated gift during our stay. Overall just a great casa that was very comfortable with a great design and fantastic views. I wouldn't hesitate to return and highly recommend it.

Great hilltop retreat
Casa Brava is a wonderful property that sits up on the hill overlooking Sayulita. We loved being so close to town, but still having the quiet and privacy of being up on the hill. The golf cart made it a breeze getting up and down the hill. The view from the living room is amazing, where you could even see whales breaching from the ocean with binoculars. It's a very charming and modern villa. Loved the concrete countertops and flooring throughout. We received a bottle of tequila and chips and salsa upon arrival, which we thought was a very nice touch. Dale had plenty of suggestions and recommendations, all which were phenomenal. Sayulita is a vibrant little town with amazing food. We'll definitely be back!

Amazing Oasis
I spent 5 days in August at this casita and cannot say enough good things. The casita is beautiful and very thoughtfully decorated. It has a small plunge pool, a large terrace and many outstanding views of the ocean, the beach, and the jungle. It's a short, convenient walk into town to go to the beach or the fun restaurants of Sayulita, but it's a pretty great place to hang out, relax, and make dinner. Dale was a fantastic host - very communicative and had many suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area. The caretakers are also amazing and very helpful. This was a perfect getaway, and I hope to be back soon!

The pictures barely do it justice
Dale's place is AMAZING! The pictures barely do it justice - the view is beautiful and the house and pool were so great that it was almost hard to leave to explore the rest of Sayulita! (The house is in a super convenient location to do so though!) Recommend renting a golf cart for cruising around town and easily getting up and down the road to the house - which was a bit steep for our pickup but not a problem in a cart. Dale had great communication and the house staff - Felipe and Suzanna - were extremely welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and easy. We had a fabulous time and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Sayulita :)

Practically perfect in every way
Casa Brava "had us at hello." Walking through the front door of our one bed, one bath home away from home perched on a hilltop we were immediately taken by the sweeping views - ocean for miles, Sayulita town below, mountains in the distance - stunning and soothing with a gentle breeze drifting inside through the palms framing the view. There's a cozy concrete-based couch with nice cushions perfectly situated for reading, a smooth-stone shower with skylight and a plunge pool perfect for a dip and a quiet gaze into the Pacific. It's a quick walk down the fairly steep driveway into Sayulita. Most nights we opted for an inexpensive cab ride back with taxi drivers readily available on the square. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need, though honestly there were so many good food options in town, we went out every night. Felipe, the home's caretaker who lives across the way, is a wonderful resource who helped us figure out a few things (like road trips) right when we arrived. Dale, the owner, has an extensive "guide" you'll receive upon booking and it's chock full of good information. We used "Sixt" rent-a-car at the Puerto Vallarta airport, for example, and were very happy. The guide gives restaurant recommendations that are spot-on and addresses most everything you might need. Plus, Dale answered a couple of follow-up questions in short order. The property has a few rental options and would be good for a family get-together. There are plenty of spaces for separate and family activities. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay, the hospitality provided by Dale and Felipe and would return in a heartbeat.

Perfect tropical getaway
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with the 1-BR apartment at Casa Brava! The views were stunning, the accommodations comfortable, and the service impeccable. The apartment sits atop a hill overlooking the town, beach, and ocean. The private wading pool with unobstructed ocean views was the highlight of our trip. Dale provided us with a very helpful introduction to the town and some great food recommendations. Felipe and Suzanna (the apartment caretakers) were welcoming, helpful, yet inconspicuous. Would recommend stopping for groceries on the way in from the airport (we arranged transport with Jose Ramos cabs and they will stop with you); the food in town is delicious but the views from the apartment's patio are so wonderful that you may want to eat at home for a few meals. We loved watching the sun rise with our morning coffee. The apartment is perfect for a couple. I don't think we could imagine staying anywhere else in Sayulita. An unforgettable experience.
