Great place
We had a fabulous stay at the Casa Amarilla. The owners, Peter and Hilary kindly booked our transportation to and from the airport. They are an awesome couple, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the city and surrounding areas. The property is very private with a beautiful pool and lavish gardens and plants. The pool was a perfect place to cool off after shopping or coming from the beach. Our room was clean and well taken care of, it has a comfy king size bed with cozy pillows and beautiful linens. We also had an outside kitchen/living area perfect for lounging, reading and playing games. The kitchen had everything you need for cooking even a bbq - just bring food. Don't want to cook there are several good restaurants within a block or two from the casa and even more great restaurants downtown which is only a 10 minute walk. Sayulita is beautiful city with friendly people and lots to do. Casa Amarilla is an oasis, we will definitely be back.

We love this place !!
This little piece of paradise was amazing !! The thought that was put into making the guests feel comfortable and well taken care of is out of this world. They supplied cooking oil, certain spices, they even made ice for when we arrived !! Books, contigo cups, every cooking item and utensil that one could ever think of. They have floaties for the pool and Tommy Bahama chairs to take to the beach !!! All in all, this was an incredible place to stay!!! The owners are so kind and easy going as well. We will be back!

Amazing Piece of Paradise!!!
We had such an amazing stay in this beautiful casita… I cannot think of anything that could have been better. Hilary and Peter are amazing hosts and were so gracious to show us some hidden out of the way beaches that were a very easy walk away. Lots of great restaurants and stores within 2 blocks so never had to go without…. But really we just lived spending time at the pool in our own little oasis. The upper palapa was also a pleasant surprise and a great place to meet up for a beverage with the group and watch the beautiful sunsets. We will definitely be back 💕💕💕

Longing To Return....
With all the wonders of Sayulita and Casa Amarilla combined, our 25 day trip was magic! This was our first visit to Sayulita and Peter & Hilary were great answering our pre-arrival questions as well as setting up round trip transportation from and back to the airport. Upon arrival to Casa Amarilla, we were greeted by Rene, the property manager and he graciously walked us through the do's and don'ts & let us know he was available 24/7. Rosa, the housekeeper was friendly and super accommodating. We enjoyed the short distance from town, the walk was a breeze and it was definitely quieter in our location. We were thrilled that Peter, the owner came to stay during our last few days. He was very nice and super respectful of our privacy. We look forward to meeting Hilary next time! For a quick visit or a long stay - whatever your travel plans are, you wont be disappointed by Casa Amarilla, we highly recommend!

Truly Amazing....Loved it!
We had the pleasure of staying for 17 nights in the lower Casita at Casa Amarilla in March.
This was the first time for us vacationing in Sayulita. We found the location perfect, close to town by staying in a perfect paradise. This complex is so well cared for, with great staff that took care of all our needs. We were fortunate to be there for a few days with the fantastic new owners of Casa Amarilla Peter and Hilary. They made us feel so welcome and were so accommodating.
It had everything we needed, very clean with a very comfy bed :)
Can't say enough about the place....we can't wait to go back!

The perfect oasis
We had the best two weeks we’ve ever had in Mexico here. The casita is just ten minutes from the lively little town, up a dirt road and down a cobbled street and there you are (don’t forget the flashlights thoughtfully provided at night!). Two really good restaurants five minutes away - best pizza in Sayulita, and the wonderful (and reasonably priced) Don Juan’s, plus several other stores, coffee shop and eateries. The property is wonderfully peaceful, safe and beautifully landscaped, and the lovely new owners are making all sorts of improvements — including faster and more reliable WiFi than we get in Vancouver. Everything is sparklingly clean; you can sit out on the rooftop under a vast palapa or lounge in the sun up there (and around the pool) on truly comfortable furniture. Fridge up there, and another by the pool too. It’s wonderfully quiet too, apart from the odd rooster (and staying alongside Mexican families living their lives is a huge plus for us: if you want a sterile all-inclusive I’m honestly not sure why you leave home…) We will be back!

Amazing Place
I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Amarilla a few times this year.
The place is magical!
Peter and Hillary were exceptional hosts as were his staff!
The huge outdoor space upstairs was great for family dinners and watching the sunrise with our morning coffee.
The casita itself was large, spacious and clean.
The kitchen was fully equipped with all amenities.
I can’t say enough about this place!
We loved it♥️

Best Value For Your Money
My daughter is building a rental in Sayulita and the entire family came for a visit. Luckily, Peter and Hillary's place eventually became the "home" for all of us.

It began with my son and his wife renting the largest unit. Next my daughter and myself checked in to a main floor suite and finally another daughter and son-in-law rented an upper unit. It was paradise!! No loud music (which we had put up with downtown), the most comfortable beds, a fully equiped kitchen, wonderfully helpful housekeeper and grounds keeper, a large, clean pool, an outdoor kitchen where we could have family dinners, and best of all------- a most accomodating host willing to try and make your stay as good as possible.

When another son-in-law arrived, I moved to the small unit that had been used by the host when he was there. There was a bedroom with bath and a spacious outdoor area with kitchen.

In effect, we stayed at every rental available at Peter and Hillary's. Before finding that, we stayed at hotels in the center of town for 2 1/2 weeks. Forget sleeping. They were very nice, clean and convenient but music went on until 4:00 or 5:00 a.m. We also stayed at a beautiful casita with not even a roll of paper towel or dish cloth in the kitchen and only a single pot to cook everything. Guests were not welcome.

We would have happily stayed at Casa Amarilla the entire time had we not had to move out when there were reservations booked. All of us would highly recommend this place.

Picture Perfect
We stayed in the Lower Casita at Casa Amarillo for about 10 days. We found it to be the perfect size, layout and location for a couple. Close enough to walk everywhere but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown. If you want a day off from exploring and shopping, the courtyard offers several different areas to enjoy, including a palapa covered bar and lounge chairs to sunbathe by the pool. Our favourite part of the property was the beautiful rooftop terrace where we retreated in the evening once the sun started to set and it cooled off. It’s great for cooking in the outdoor kitchen and having drinks while enjoying the most stunning views in Sayulita. We preferred walking, to keep us from becoming too lazy on our holiday but if you’d rather drive, we would suggest booking a golf cart ahead of time as they are typically all rented out and the cobblestone streets can be hard on the feet if you don’t have the proper footwear!

Bienvenidos, welcome to Casa Amarilla! We are very fortunate to be living our dream of having a home in beautiful Sayulita. Hilary and I owe a lot to the the previous owners, Doug and Sheran King, who enthusiastically introduced us to the wonders of Sayulita when we first visited in 2014. We loved Casa Amarilla and the people that call Sayulita home and are excited about becoming part of the community. It’s welcoming nature, the Mexican people, and it’s vibrant downtown are what captured us from the outset. Doug and Sheran had a dream and brought it to life in all that is Casa Amarilla. We will carry that dream forward, and we sincerely hope that our guests will embrace this “pueblo magico “ as we have.
