Casa Tranquila is located in Sayulita's tranquil North End, only 5 minutes from the North Beach, and right outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Sayulita. This area is a residential neighborhood with a more relaxed, yet lively, environment. While town is conveniently close, it has less traffic and noise.
Everything is easily walkable. The beach is a 5-minute walk, restaurants are 4 minutes, downtown is a 10-minute walk, and popular surf breaks are an 11-minute walk. The terrain is flat until a medium sloping hill begins 150 meters before reaching the house; there are no steep hills to climb.
Sayulita is a heavily canopied area that is brimming with a myriad of jungle birds that seem to compete for sound.
❁ Nighttime noise at Tranquila consists of birdlife rather than nightlife. Sayulita's ubiquitous roosters and chachalacas often call well before dawn. Michael provides earplugs to help out.
❁ Please see a reference to common Sayulita sounds below.
Privacy is a defining feature of Casa Tranquila. The common areas are spacious and the bedrooms are generously separated.
There are three large bedrooms, all with AC, comfortable king-size beds, and bathroms.
❁ The master bedroom has a shared bathroom and is located on the second level (main floor) where the the kitchen, living area, and ocean-view terrace are located. A set of French doors provides a walkout to the terrace for an outdoor living feel.
❁ The remaining two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are on the first level (ground floor), each with a private entrance from the patio; yielding access to the pool and garden. If you are traveling with children, and would like to sleep more closely to them, a door connecting these two bedrooms can be unlocked and opened. Also, one of the two king beds can be split into two single beds. All beds are pillow-top which comprise a plush layer for extra comfort on a firm supportive mattress.
❁ The charge for extra persons is $40 / person / night for the 7th and 8th person. A large sectional sofa in the living area is available to accommodate one adult, and an inflatable mattress can be made available.
KITCHEN & LIVING:
❁ The gourmet kitchen is fully functional with modern appliances and plenty of utensils to accommodate cooking large meals for friends and family. The dishes are traditional Mexican dinnerware and the glassware is hand-blown. The interior décor of the house is unique, much of it designed and handmade locally.
❁ A/C is available in the living area (2-ton AC unit) which is continuous with the kitchen.
❁ Open-air options are available to the kitchen and living area via wide French doors that open up to the terrace.
❁ If streaming a movie is great family fun for you, a wall-mounted 65" 2018 model Samsung smart TV will allow you to connect to your Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Hulu accounts. It does not have cable nor does it broadcast networks.
POOL, PATIO, TERRACE, & ROOFTOP:
❁ The ground level comprises a patio, a large pool, a gas grill, and lavish tropical gardens of exotic trees and plants, like Yuka, Noni, Lichi, Passionflower, various Haliconias, red ginger, cactus, and herbs. This diverse and prolific array of broad leaves and bright flowers have become a sanctuary to many types of birds– flocks of startling green parakeets and arboreal chachalacas among them. The pool has plenty of sun, there are hammocks to read in and games to play. These outdoor areas provide plenty of cover for shade. An outdoor shower keeps salt and sand at bay.
❁The pool has a shallow end which is a few inches deep; shallow enough for a child to sit in. It deepens to mid-chest on an average-height person at the deep end. If you have small children, please be aware that the pool is not fenced nor gated. It is not heated.
❁ The truly expansive terrace on the main floor has an ocean view, and its many couches, chairs and hammock invite relaxation. The walk home from the beach is relatively flat, yet the terrace is a beautiful perch that guarantees ocean-view sunsets every evening, and is also a wonderful place to experience the magic of dawn in Sayulita.
❁The roof-top deck provides a bird's-eye perspective of Sayulita and has the most breathtaking views. A pergola provides dappled shade over a 6-person dining table & chairs, and the extensive floor space accommodates lounging & playing, and is perfect for sunset photos with family and friends.
A Sayulita original, the beauty of this Mexican style home is defined by it's interior facade. The home's layout is designed around a patio that is delineated by arcades and columns. Wrought iron trimmed windows & doors break up the large expanse of walls and lend a striking effect. Other architectural details include a Misson tile "teja" sloped roof & overhang that synchronizes with "cantera" stone trim ceilings. The many stucco columns are interspersed by a parade of potted broad leaf plants, ferns, flowers and succulents. The gem at the center of these details is the pool & lush gardens; the house is seemingly in service to them.
PPRIVACY & SECURITY:
❁ The entire villa is wholly private to you.
❁ As is the tradition in colonial Mexican cities, the house, pool & gardens are entirely enclosed within high fortress-like walls extending along the property line. This wall obscures the home from public view, creating a private and highly secured tropical retreat. This street facade is painted in a contrasting color from neighbors, contributing to the rainbow of colored streets that are characteristic of streets seen all over Mexico. It also helps guests find the home easily.
❁ Secured gated parking is available during the high season, and safes are available in each bedroom. Please see note about parking during low season below.
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT & HOUSEKEEPING:
❁ For over 15 years Casa Tranquila has had the same same property manager with the same cleaning staff (really wonderful girls - Cynthia and Mariana) and gardener (Alex). Security is their high priority, and they have an impeccable security record.
❁ The property management team has a physical location at the Plaza with open hours daily. They are available at all times.
❁ Cleans are scheduled at intervals of approximately 3-4 days.
❁ Tips to the house staff (customary in Sayulita) can be placed in the provided envelopes to individual staff. In response to questions about tipping recommendations, our response is always to please do so from the heart.

These speeds are uniform throughout the house, including poolside and the downstairs bedrooms.
North End Sounds:
Despite recent rapid growth, the North End remains much less crowded and much more quiet than Sayulita's south side and downtown. The walk to the center of Sayulita from the North End is only 10 minutes, and its many advantages include a more tranquil environment, location close to the beach, not a lot of traffic, and no general town noise.
– A really nice essay about the types of noise you can expect in Sayulita can be found on Sayulita Life: "Sounds of Sayulita" by David McKeagan.
Note about Laundry:
Guests aren't given laundry access. Sayulita has a number of laundromats. Ask us, we can make a recommendation!
Note about electrical outlets:
Electrical outlets at Casa Tranquila are two-prong only (no ground). They are standard 120-volt/60-cycle current, the same as the US and Canada, so no need to bring adapters and converters.
Note about Low Season:
Sayulita is great any time of year. But, here are a couple things that you should be aware of during low season. Low season is June 1 – October 31.
–Parking during low season:
Low season brings heavy rains to Sayulita. This often washes out the unfinished road that accesses Casa Tranquila’s driveway and secured on-site parking located at the back of the property. If you plan to rent a car during low season, you will want to rent a suburban, jeep, or 4-wheel drive to access the parking space. Public street parking is available near the house and is accessible by average cars any time of year.
–Power, water, and internet during low season:
In addition to rain, it is also the hottest time of the year. Heat and thunder storms (spectacular to see) put a heavy burden on the maturing infrastructure of Sayulita. Demands on restricted resources do cause water shortages, power outages, and internet connectivity issues. There are work-arounds, but just be aware of a degree of unpredictability during the hot and rainy season.
– Hurricane Season:
Sayulita, like other coastal towns in the Pacific region of Mexico, experiences a hurricane season, the peak of which is August to October. During this time, the area is more susceptible to tropical storms and hurricanes. Local authorities usually have emergency plans in place, and it's advisable for guests to stay informed about weather forecasts during this period.
