Hidden among mature trees and tropical gardens is this oasis in Sayulita: Casa Duende.
Each of the three well-appointed bedrooms at Casa Duende have their own private en-suite bathrooms. The downstairs King master bedroom is equipped with A/C. A high, decorative wall blocks the view into the Casa from passersby street side, and the walls surrounding the side and back of the house ensure that the grounds are totally private. Guests can relax on the large, ground-level patio, equipped with a stainless-steel BBQ, sink and bar/counter - plus make use of the built-in wood smoker for the fresh fish you'll get from the local fishermen.
The two upper level bedrooms have a palapa-covered patio, and overlook the gardens and neighboring trees. The doors to the kitchen and living room are completely screened and open up onto the patio for a lush view of the bouganvillas, banana trees, cactus plants and gardens. Casa Duende is a quick, level, 3-minute walk to the plaza and to Sayulita beach. There are no hills to walk, making this ideally accessible for all ages. There are stores nearby for purchasing groceries or other necessities. While there is no need for a car at Casa Duende, there is street parking should you require it.
Case Duende is in a perfect location, just up the street from Rollie's, by the "big rock" that everyone knows! A locally run convenience store is 4 doors down, and a local neighbourhood restaurant is just past that - making both a 30 second walk. No street noises can be heard from this oasis, and you'll delight in watching hummingbirds, dragonflies, butterflies and geckos in the gardens. It is a nature-lovers paradise!
The kitchen is ideal for making that perfect meal, with a full-size fridge/freezer, all dishes and utensils, and gorgeous parrota wood cabinets that are fully screened for cleanliness. Use the coffee and espresso maker in the morning, and enjoy a refreshing blender drink in the afternoon. The outdoor grill is also full-sized, with the wood smoker for that freshly-caught fish, and is complete with running water, outdoor counterspace and sink.
The immaculate tile floors throughout the entire Casa make the bedrooms warm and welcoming. Windows open up from the upper floor to a gorgeous view of the gardens and the high ceilings and palapa roof leave all bedrooms feeling airy and bright. Full sized bathrooms are ensuite in each bedroom, and plenty of closet space is available. All windows and doors are fully-screened.
Just follow the sidewalk for a quick, easy walk to the town square and beach. Beach towels are offered, so there's no need to bring anything with you to the Casa, aside from a bathing suit! For those quiet nights at home, enjoy a dvd or listen to music with the ipod docking station.
With the full-size laptop safe and wireless internet, check your email from the reclining living room chair or comfy counch.
Airport transfer and tours can be arranged with seating large enough for the entire rental party.
Because of the location and setup of the house, families with children are welcome!
