I immediately felt right at home!
My friend and I were warmly welcomed upon our arrival and Vida even carried one of our bags all the way to the rooftop for us. We were made to feel right at home and everything was perfect. I would (and plan to) definitely stay again. This was my first trip to Mexico, let alone Sayulita, and I fell in love right away and hated to leave. Lodging at Casitas Tortugas definitely played a large role in my wonderful trip to Sayulita.

Location + Comfort
This is a great rental. Amazing location, two small blocks to the beach and also to the main Plaza. So many awesome things to see around. Close, but not quite in the center of it all. Marcelo was very helpful prior to arrival. The bed was super comfy. Location, location, location. The place has everything you need.

10/10 Recommend
This vacation rental exceeded my expectations. The room was exactly as it looks in the pictures, the location is the best, and Marcelo was very helpful and helped me find the things I needed around town (including a good doctor I needed on my first day in town!). Wi-fi was pretty reliable and I was able to conduct video calls for work from my room, although it did cut out on the odd occasion. Thanks for a wonderful stay and I hope to be back!

Stay here :)
Casitas Tortugas is located just a few blocks from the center of town. It was very close to all the restaurants, shops, and the beach ( just 2 blocks away!), but far enough away that it was quiet at night for sleeping. Carlos was very quick to respond and accommodating! I would definitely recommend his place to any guests traveling to Sayulita!

Congenial, accomodating owner, great deal
As suggested by the description, the unit was built and finished to a reasonably high standard. I can’t personally compare to any other rentals but the price also seemed like a screaming deal considering the location and size of the space (separate sitting area and kitchen, spacious bathroom adjoining the bedroom).

If I had a complaint, it would be that the unit doesn’t get a ton of natural light, and is a bit dark. This probably helps keep it cool in warmer months but in January it was less inviting.

Super walkable to the beach and shopping. Street parking was always available nearby (can’t say the same for all areas of Sayulita.

Marcelo in Sayulita Mexico
Owner/Manager Name
Marcelo
Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
I was born and lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina until 1987, when, because of the unstable political situation, I moved with my wife-to-be, to Santa Barbara, California. I lived there for 15 years, working as a finish carpenter and contractor, something I really loved doing. After many years of fixing, building and remodeling other people's houses, it became my dream to create my own place, and a home-based business started to form. While living in Santa Barbara, we took beach vacations, with my wife and children, along the Riviera Nayarit, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. One afternoon we met a lady who asked us to go for a ride with her to Sayulita. It was the first time I went into that charming town. I had an instant connection, and the feeling that Sayulita was the place for us to materialize our dreams. Asking around I found a small house two blocks from the main beach, and two blocks from the town square. It was a great location and I bought the house the following day! In 2002 I finally moved to Sayulita with my children. The very next day people were knocking at my door, asking me to become their contractor and to be in charge of building their houses. Speaking both English and Spanish fluently, and possessing knowledge about construction with American standards of quality and craftsmanship, made me very sought after in the region. After I had finished the construction of my casitas, I added another unit, the 2.5 bedroom suite, situated above my own house in the front part of the property.
