Casita Leyenda (The “Legendary” Studio)

1 block to Plaza - 3 blocks to Beach - Blazing Internet  
The Casita is perched high above the plaza and has ocean views from inside as well as outside. The roof-top deck is your yoga space with views from Main Beach to San Pancho. Active stays are easily accommodated: near the plaza for entertainment, the main beach for surfing, and floor space at home. Internet speed is unmatched, and the local team is always there for you. Weekly/Monthly rates available.

❁ Excellent Fiber Wi-Fi ❁ 
Internet speed is the best in the area. Expect solid video conferencing and uninterrupted performance. 
❁ Nighttime Noise ❁ 
Please reconsider if you'd like to avoid downtown noise at night. 
❁ Steep Hill-Climb ❁ 
Please reconsider if mobility is a challenge. 

Fiber-Optic Internet: 
75 Mbps download / 37 Mbps upload, Wi-Fi speeds (SpeedOf.Me).
The fiber-optic network connection at Casita Leyenda is dedicated to the Casita and is exclusive to Casita guest use only. This results in exceedingly fast and reliable internet and is unequivocally the best in the area. The property manager in Sayulita is vigilant about maintaining connectivity and speed. 

❁ Casita Leyenda is a luminous circular studio with expansive windows on all view-facing walls. 
❁ The king-size bed has an ocean view, as does the couch, which easily sleeps another adult. 
❁ The patio has a sweeping view over Sayulita that continues to the ocean. It is fully furnished for lounging and dining, and includes a gas grill.
❁ The Roof-top deck is truly expansive, and has the most spectacular views. From here you can check for incoming swells and see all the way to San Pancho. During winter, you can also watch for whales. It is furnished for lounging, and yoga mats are available. 
❁ The kitchen is fully equipped with a mid-size refrigerator, oven, gas stove, microwave, water kettle, blender, toaster, drip coffee maker, stove-top espresso maker, and coffee grinder. All the essentials and more are there for you. 
❁ Bathroom is full (hot shower).

❁ Location: Downtown
The Casita is located above the Plaza on Gringo Hill, which is the very steep hill directly behind the plaza. It overlooks downtown Sayulita. 
The Plaza is a 2-min walk, the main beach and surf break is another 3 minutes. 
❁ Nighttime Noise: 
Please reconsider if you'd like to avoid downtown noise at night. The Casita is entirely removed to a high perch above the Plaza, but the thump of Sayulita night-life floats up unobstructed, especially during Easter and Christmas. The trade-off is convenience to downtown and easy access to the main surf-break (literally a 3-4 min walk). We provide earplugs and a white noise machine to help out. 
❁ Hill Climb: 
The one-block walk from the Plaza to Leyenda is very steep and is followed by a flight of stairs, so be prepared to burn calories! 
❁ Ocean View: 
Sweeping ocean views are available from every location, including the bed. Your hill climb pay-off. 

❁ Privacy: 
The Casita property is entirely private. Access to the studio, patio, and rooftop deck is for Casita guests only. 
❁ Security: 
The studio is extraordinarily safe. It is accessed through two digitally locked gates- the first enters a car port, and the second exits the garage to access the Casa and Casita. 
❁ House-keeping: 
There are no additional charges for cleaning, which are generally scheduled every 4 days.

❁ Property Management: For over 10 years Casa and Casita Leyenda has had the same same property manager with the same cleaning staff (really wonderful girls - Cynthia and Marianna) 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 immediately available at all times. You will be safe, secure, and well taken care of.

The following are available to you:  
Excellent Fiber-optic internet connection.   
Security gate  
Hotel-style safe  
Gas barbecue grill  
Filtered water 
Beach towels  
Yoga mats  
Surf board storage
Earplugs & White noise machine

Access is through two digitally locked gates. The first gate enters the car port on the ground floor, which is dedicated to two-bedroom Casa Leyenda. The second gate is a pedestrian door that exits the garage and accesses the Casa and Casita. A key lock-box contains the key to enter the Casita. Casita guests have exclusive access to the entire Casita property: studio, patio, and roof-top terrace.

The place was amazing for us. Everything we needed was within walking distance and the place itself was large, comfortable (great bed), peaceful and super clean. The hosts were attentive and accommodating. I can't imagine finding a better spot in town--we highly recommended it. Thanks again Nancee and David. We'll be staying here again whenever that may be.

We loved this home!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for two weeks. It was a little over our budget and we took a lot of time to decide but I am very pleased we stayed there. I think the apartment and the view are more gorgeous than the pictures do justice. We will never forget our time there, opening the curtains in the morning to that view - opening all the doors so it is like you're living outside and eating/drinking was some of the best I have had ever. Check in was straight forward, cleaning and water refill was a real bonus. I worked from the apartment almost every day, hosting multiple video conferencing calls with the UK and South America without issue. The previous reviews suggesting great Wi-Fi speed was one of the major factors in booking this apartment and it didn't disappoint. Location is quite perfect, just up the hill from the town. We would get coffees from Cafe Anchor at the bottom of the hill every day and sometimes a smoothie. As the location is so close to the town you will hear the music late at night. The hosts have done everything they can to reduce this noise for their guests including providing a white noise speaker which was a revelation! We now only ever sleep with white noise that we play through our speaker!

Highly Recommend!
Casita Leyenda was a wonderful little casa to stay in Sayulita. Right up the hill from Sayulita Plaza, far enough away from the bar/club noises but close enough to be able to walk to everything with ease. Highlights include gorgeous views, plenty of kitchen amenities for making meals and frozen margaritas, and a very comfortable bed + pillows. I highly recommend Escondido Bar which is right at the bottom of the hill for wonderful cocktails and a relaxing vibe. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Great experience
Incredible experience - very nice place with a great view of the town and ocean, and close to the center of town. Service was outstanding, on the first day I accidentally locked myself out of the apartment and I had a replacement key within 5 minutes! On the check-out day I had a late flight and was able to get a late check out which was really helpful. Highly recommend!

beautiful home & excellent location
We stayed in San Pancho (12 minute drive north of Sayulita) for 6 weeks. The internet there is so bad that we ended up renting this house to be our office. Our only real requirement was fast internet, and this place delivered that and so much more. Internet - We consistently had great internet speed of 30 mbps. It did drop a few times throughout the weeks, but it came back quickly so it wasn't much of a disruption. Location - This is in the heart of Sayulita, a quick walk from the main plaza. There are literally hundreds of restaurants, bars, etc. within a few blocks, and the beach took about 5 minutes to walk to. The main thing to know is that it is at the top of a very steep hill. You won't want to walk up it in flip flops. Parking - We had a rental car for the drive down and parking was a challenge at times. If you get to town before 10am, you can easily find parking right outside the casita. After that, good luck. There is a parking lot .3 miles away for 100 pesos/day. We had to use that a few times. Overall we were very happy with the casita. We have 3 kids, so we couldn't stay in it as our main place, but we said if we were traveling just the two of us, we would definitely stay here. Highly recommended!

Great location, great host
Awesome little casita with amazing views, great hosts (friendly, responsive, accommodating - they let us stay an extra day super last minute). Very safe area, couldn’t have been a better location/proximity to town and a short walk to the beach. Would definitely recommend it.

Location & Views!
Luminous studio apartment with everything you need. The rooftop patio has a fantastic view of the town and the ocean. Half of the house is made of windows which allowed for a refreshing breeze. Internet was great-I had a few remote meetings during our stay and had no issues. The hosts were responsive and very helpful. Truly the hosts are top-notch! The only draw back is the noise in the evenings (and the roosters), you are directly above the plaza which is the heart of nightlife. However, you are right above the plaza and anything you need is just steps away!
