Casita Elena at Casa Terramar Covid-19 preventive measures

If you are reading this that is good news as it means you are thinking about traveling.
Maintaining the property and providing you with sparking clean units has always been a top personal priority for me.  Now with Covid-19  it has become a critical point for all of us. 

I want, you, our guest to know that we are doing everything possible to make you comfortable, to make things easy for you  and to help you stay healthy.  For this reason, we will be implementing the recommended practices from the CDC and other best practice suggestions for vacation rental properties and I”m throwing in a few of my own.
These new measures will include the following:

1)  24 hour waiting/air out period between guest stays. Of everything we are doing, I think this is one of the most important as it helps not only protect you but our staff as well and gives us ample time to do what is needed. 

2) After our units are cleaned of normal dust and dirt, each will be sanitized using bleach on all kitchen and bath surfaces,  door knobs, switches etc. Basically, anything that you can touch  will be sanitized with bleach as long as it won’t hurt the surface.  All other surfaces will be sprayed with lysol or similar product; including mattress, pillows, other soft surfaces, wood dressers, desks  etc.

3) Sofia our housekeeper will wear gloves and a mask for all cleaning before and during your stay. 

4)  In your arrival information and during your check in, you will be given what day your unit will cleaned. This way you can be out and about enjoying yourself while your unit is sanitized mid-stay. 

5) A bottle of Lysol or similar product will be in your unit so you can also sanitize as you wish. Spray away baby!

6) Hand sanitizing gel will be provided in each unit. I’m buying in bulk so please bring your small bottle to refill as needed and help us to reduce plastic waste:)

7) Forgot to bring extra masks…no worries we will have you covered. No pun intended. 

We are looking forward to having you as our guest for some much deserved “time away”. If you have any questions regarding this, please use the contact form. Thank you.

3 months in Casita Elena
We spent 3 months living at Casa Terramar in Casita Elena. It was a perfect place for us for that period of time. Comfortable bed, great kitchen for cooking, nice living area for reading and visiting. We enjoyed getting to know Beth and the other individuals staying in the 2 other casitas. We would stay here again! Just beware that it is a bit of a climb up a hill and you will need to build rooster and hen sounds into your life. The pool is great. And the wild birds in the trees surrounding the casita are a real treat.

Such a great find!
As I sit by the fire in Northern California waiting for the several feet of snowfall expected, I think back to our time in Sayulita just a week ago. We stayed in Casita Elena and loved the accommodations. Arrival couldn't have gone more smoothly thanks to Beth arranging a private round trip ride for us, which even stopped at the grocery store n PV. Additionally, all the codes and information that Beth sent to us made getting into the place easy, too. The location is situated near to everything yet, feels a nice distance off the main track. I felt safe on the walk home. It is a steep climb but it was not a problem at all- especially for the views. Be sure to explore the north area of the beach too. We loved that- much more quiet. One of the main reasons I booked with Beth is both the lovely pool but also, that at any given time there are only a 2-4 guests on the property and being around the pool was private and peaceful. As everyone has commented, Beth was an incredible host who was readily available for any questions and recommendations prior to arrival but also while at Casita Elena. We chose to rent a scooter (for 2) versus a golf cart as we wanted to explore San Pancho(loved) and Punta Mita. Definitely an adventure but worth it. We hooked up with Project Tortuga in San Pancho and were able to release 32 turtles into the ocean one evening....amazing. The weather was perfect and the need for AC was nonexistent during our November stay. Many thanks, Beth. See you again soon.

Our home away from home!
We absolutely love Beth and Casita Elena! It is the perfect spot, close enough to town, but far enough away when you want some quietude. It is located in a neighborhood that lends an authentic Mexican atmosphere, while it also provides many comforts, including a glorious pool and an open palapa living area with great jungle view. The decor is also super charming, and the house is well-appointed with everything you need. All the hot spots are walkable from here if you don’t mind a short hill climb, and if you do, just rent a golf cart! Beth is an incredibly gracious and friendly host who will help you find the best food and activities in town and beyond. And the price is affordable so you will have more money for tacos y cerveza!

Beautiful Oasis
We had a great time working remotely and enjoying Sayulita from here. Close to the beach, SUPER well equipped, close to town but not in the middle, so nice and quiet. Having a pool was delish cause the heat was brutal! No AC was painful but fans were strong. There is a steep hill getting to the house so just make sure you are ready for that - shoes, car for taking up your luggage. Beth is wonderful, attentive and helpful, quick to respond to anything you need!

So serene, a slice of paradise and that pool, it's the best...clean and sparkling and very private!!!
Casa Terramar is adorable. I came alone for the second time for rest and relaxation. Privately located yet it is close to everything if you are looking to experience the heart of vibrant Sayulita. The hostess Beth takes beautiful care of the property and is there to greet you. She also arranges the rides round trip to the airport in Puerto Vallarta. The property is very safe and secure.

Had a blast, thank you
This place is the best! Beth who runs the place is an absolute gem. She was so helpful from start to finish of our entire trip to Sayulita. She is a most attentive and responds fast, a very lovely host and had it all covered in helping with almost every aspect of our stay. She helped us setup trustworthy transportation to and from the airport, had amazing ideas for places to explore and eat, locations of gorgeous beaches and markets to see and was perfect to meet and talk to in person! We stayed in Casita Elena which has a charming open air style kitchen, dining room and balcony chill out area. The bedroom and bathroom are enclosed and was comfortable and clean with a beautiful and very comfortable bed. There is a stunning pool which lives next to another balcony that has a hammock and a table and chairs with a great view. Casa Terramar lives on a hill so everything is overlooking the city. It's a good amount of distance away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the main part of town ,but definitely be prepared for a short steep walk up the hill to get to it. Fortunately a jump in the pool after the walk up was awesome every time! We ended up renting a golf cart for a day which was fun. Beth also had great recommendations for several rental companies nearby. But you can also walk to town or the beaches within 10-15 minutes with plenty to do and see on the way. Our only complaint was that we didn't stay longer! We want to come visit again someday!

Thank you for as great vacation
My stay at Beth’s was amazing! Our unit was spotless and well equipped, and while there is a bit of a walk up a hill to get there, it was for sure worth it all to be a bit farther away from the noise in town. We adored the open air kitchen and living room, as well as the fun pool and common spaces. We are hoping to return soon!

10/10 Recommend
Villa Casa Terramar was everything we hoped it would be and more! We stayed at Casita Elena, which was the perfect size for the two of us! The pool was beautiful and the views were spectacular. Even though you are just a couple of blocks from the beach, this is a quieter area on the hill where you can escape from the noise of the city.
Beth was so great! Checking in was super easy and she even had cold beers waiting when we arrived. She gave us the best recommendations and had tons of helpful tips to make our stay truly unforgettable. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Beth and Rubi!
