BIENVENIDOS at Casa Escondida, your secluded tropical getaway with private pool, garden, and views of the ocean, bay, and hills.  "Escondida" means "hidden" and is an appropriate name for this small but charming home.  It is nestled in the hills and surrounded by a tropical garden.  Consider yourself "lost" or "found" at this private retreat, which will be yours alone, where you can unwind, play, celebrate, or all of the above in an easy-going environment with lovely views.

Casa Escondida accommodates a maximum of 2 adults and 2 small children.  The large bedroom has a king-sized bed and a double-sized bed.  The double is built into a nook and perfect for 1 or 2 small children, or day-dreaming.  A portable Pack N Play is available for our smallest guests.  The room is air-conditioned and stylishly furnished with handmade local furniture and regional artwork. The bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and the open-air kitchen is modern and fully equipped.  The private pool is about 5' deep and includes a small wading/sitting/splash area.  The patio is equipped with chairs, lounge chairs, and sun umbrella.

Casa Escondida is located on the quiet north side of Sayulita.  It is steps away from the most private and pristine part of Sayulita's beach and within walking distance of the lively town center and main swim beach.  After a 10-minute walk along the palm-lined beach or frontage road you will find the first restaurants, shops, and surf break.  Casa Escondida's proximity to the center of town is one of its many attractions.  It is close enough to walk to everything that Sayulita has to offer yet far enough to escape the hustle and bustle and find peace and tranquility. 

Sayulita is a picturesque fishing village where low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand.  On the palm-tree lined beach you can rent lounge chairs and sun umbrellas, lunch at one of the many beach cafés, go for a swim or hit the waves for some first-class surfing, take surf lessons, go horseback riding, or charter a boat to go fishing or snorkeling. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, zip line adventures, and visits to neighboring colonial towns.  In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening.  Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.

Sayulita is about a 45-minute drive north of Puerto Vallarta.  We can assist with transportation arrangements from and to the airport (including a stop at a large supermarket), a golf car rental for local convenience, or car rental.  Taxi service is another option or the local Compostela bus!

Beautiful SAYULITA is Mexico at its best and CASA ESCONDIDA simply complements this.  Together they hold every promise for an unforgettable vacation and a perfect retreat to come back to year after year.

If you are in need of more space, please consider our other home Villa Yerbabuena - offering 4BR, 3.5 BA and incredible views.

Great little casita
Wonderful little one room home. AC, outdoor spaces, and pool make it feel like a much larger villa. 2 beach chairs, umbrella, and coolers for beach use are a really thoughtful touch.

The perfect little hideaway!
This place exceeded all my expectations! The grounds were impeccable and tranquil and the pool was the perfect size. At night it’s such a vibe with all the outdoor lights. Be prepared to hike up a lot of stairs but you’ll be able to eat more tacos with your daily workout ☺️, The property manger is awesome too she even went out of her way to return something I left behind. I can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful Holiday!
We had the opportunity to stay at Casa Escondido in February and we absolutely loved it! As others have said, this casita is in the North "quiet" end of town, if you want to be out late it's a quick 10 minute or so walk to the center where there are plenty of fantastic restaurants etc. The casita it self is perfect in every way. We loved the outdoor kitchen space and pool which was perfect in the afternoons. Although we are big walkers and hadn't planned on a golf cart ultimately we did and it was totally worth it just for exploring the town.

Our house manager, housekeeper and grounds keeper were wonderful!

Hoping to come this way again sooner than later!

Tropical Oasis
We just returned from an amazing week’s stay at Casa Econdida! Such a beautifully designed casa surrounded by lush tropical foliage framing a lovely view of the ocean. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the private pool and sitting in the open air kitchen listening to the many sounds of nature. It’s just a hop, skip, and jump to the beach and a 15 min walk to the center of town. Perfect location for enjoying all that Sayulita offers!

LOVE Casa Escondida!
This is the perfect couple getaway. Spacious, beautifully decorated, very quiet and private with your own sparkling pool surrounded by lovely gardens. A short walk down to a beautiful beach and also walkable to town for dinner at night. Loved hearing the waves crashing below when sitting outside.

Clean, tranquil garden bungalow set up with all the upscale amenities in a setting alive with nature in beautifully maintained gardens.
Perfect place to wake up in a tropical setting with morning coffee and the Sounds of Sayulita (Pacific Ocean waves and friendly neighborhood Chacalacas). Private pool provides a perfect retreat from the afternoon sun before/after a quick hike to the beach below or more secluded beaches North of town (via moderate trails). Cap the day off with an easy walk into town for authentic dinner along safe, rustic garden lined cobblestone streets.

Beyond Impressed
We loved this quaint home surrounded by tropical trees and birds! As others have said it is a steep climb but we walked into town and back every day - this was our exercise! It was a bit cool the week we were there so may be worth renting a cart if it is really hot or if someone has mobility issues. We loved walking into town to get groceries and cooking in the beautiful outdoor kitchen. Just do not leave any food out when you’re not there. The animals will eat it. The kitchen is full equipped to cook at the house. It is very quiet at night.

If you go left on the street at the bottom of the hill, at the end of the street there is a path which leads to a very beautiful and quiet side of the beach.

Just as advertised
Casa Escondida was exactly as expected. The location is perfect for walking into town for a little action, and returning to the peace of the north end. Marusa was a joy and Pati could not have been more helpful. Communication from our first request through our departure was amazing. Thanks Iris, Tom (and Max) for a wonderful month. Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful & peaceful
Our stay at Casa Escondida was so lovely. It’s located on the outskirts of the bustling little town so it’s very peaceful. Maru was easy to contact and very helpful. We saw a lot of wildlife from the kitchen which was super exciting. We are sad to leave but will be back!

Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
Hola! We are a small family of three living in San Francisco, CA. Thom is from Cupertino, CA, a general contractor and founder of Hammerhouse Construction, Inc. Iris is from The Netherlands and has a background in finance. We love designing and building and are currently remodeling our 100+ year old fixer-upper in San Francisco, CA. When our son was only 3 months old we traveled to Sayulita for our first family vacation. At the very end of Calle Loma Linda we rented a vacation home with beautiful views of the ocean and an empty lot below ... It was 2002. We were in the midst of the financial crisis and there was no way then that we could afford to buy a home in San Francisco ~ not even a fixer-upper but maybe an empty lot in Mexico? We fell in love with Sayulita and kept wondering about that lot. We were in Sayulita for a week or so but before we left we were the proud owners of an empty L-shaped lot. Now the dreaming could start! In 2007 we built Casa Escondida on the top part of the L-shaped lot. A one-bedroom casita ideal for the three of us to stay. The dreaming continued and in 2012 we built Villa Yerbabuena on the lower part of the lot. When we designed and built our homes we always had the privacy, comfort and needs of our family, friends, and you, our guests, in mind. Both Casa Escondida and Villa Yerbabuena are available for rent and offer space to play, space to come together, and space to retreat. Nuestra casa es su casa!
