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

Casa Escondida is located in the exclusive Pedregroso neighborhood on the quiet north side of Sayulita.  It is steps away from the most private and pristine end of Sayulita’s beautiful beach and within walking distance of the lively town center.  After a 10-minute walk along the palm-lined beach or newly paved road you will find the first restaurants, shops, and surf break.  Casa Escondida's proximity to the center of town is one of its 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. 

Casa Escondida accommodates a maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults with 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 for day-dreaming. 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.  If you prefer not to cook and stay at home, arrangements can be made to have a delicious home-cooked meal delivered. The pool in front of the house is about 5' deep and includes a small wading/sitting/splash area.  The patio is equipped with chairs, lounge chairs, and sun umbrella.

Regardless of whether you are inside, outside, or in the pool you will have fabulous views of the ocean, bay, and sunset.

The town of Sayulita is a charming fishing village, about a 35-minute drive away on Highway 200 through a lush mountain rainforest north from Puerto Vallarta.  Low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand in this picturesque village.  On the palm-tree lined beach you find lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for rent, beach cafés and restaurants, surf schools, and local fisherman who will take you fishing or bring you to pristine snorkeling areas.  The ocean is great for splashing, swimming, and offers first-class surfing.  Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine such as Italian, French, Chinese, and Argentinean.  There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, mountain biking, kayaking, zip line adventures, horseback riding, visits to neighboring colonial towns and ancient pre-Columbian petroglyphs.  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.

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.

Home away from Home
We loved this home, a well thought of floor plan, well appointed details and great bed.
The gardens and pool are exceptional and the staff were excellent. We really felt at home here and all the details that were put into this home were appreciated. Good exercise coming up the hill!

A slice of paradise, close to the fun, but not in the middle of it!
We stayed for 2 weeks beginning Dec. 22, 2017. We have stayed in Sayulita in different places over the past 7 years. This spot is definitely sweet. Privacy, pool, a slice of ocean view, lovely garden and birds made the outside space great. Nice bedroom and bathroom. Comfy bed. Nice linens and towels. The kitchen, super clean, with large open arches to the 'jungle' was just fine. We didn't want to leave.

Even better than we could have imagined!
My husband and I spent 5 nights at Casa Escondida in mid-May- not yet the rainy season! Sunny and 88 every day! We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. This rental is pure heaven! The photos are very accurate, yet don't begin to really showcase this property! The view of the ocean is pure bliss. The pool is perfect...not too big and not too small. The home has everything we needed to be very comfortable for our stay. The kitchen is well-equipped. We stopped (have Iris arrange for transport from/to the airport...Javier will stop at the Mega market so you can shop for groceries) for supplies and made most breakfasts and lunches at home. The open air kitchen is dreamy!

Here are the main highlights:
The king sized bed is very comfortable.
The home is clean and well maintained.
The staff - Maru, Omar and Patty - were beyond lovely and not ever in the way.
The owner- Iris - is the most efficient and pleasant person I've ever rented from...and we have stayed in rentals in the US, Puerto Rico and Europe. She always answered my questions promptly and with extra information. She has this down!
The air conditioning works beautifully! Feels great after a hot day at the beach.
The neighborhood is safe, private and quiet.
Purified drinking water at the house.
A kitchen where you can truly cook meals, if you'd like. Though fish tacos are cheap...and delicious!

Things to keep in mind:
The walk to town is about a mile. Cobblestone roads or the beach. The walk isn't terribly difficult, but if you aren't up to this simply rent a golf cart.

The bathroom is open air. The shower has an open wall. It's very private, but not for everyone. We loved it! Just keep the bathroom door closed to keep the mosquitoes out of the main bedroom.

Sayulita is a super cool town. The residents were very friendly. We felt very safe, even when walking back to the house in the late evening.

Casa Escondida is wonderful!
We couldn't have been happier with our choice.

Casa Escondida was lovely in every way!
The gorgeous ocean view perfectly framed by palm trees, the open-air kitchen, the classic Mexican decor and architecture—a perfect vacation home. The house was very clean and came with everything we needed. Even though it was a steep, long walk (10-15 min) from town, we never regretted NOT renting a golf cart. After eating so much delicious food in town, the walk home was welcomed. We would love to stay at this house again.

"Perfect Gem Just A Stone's Throw From Town"
My husband and I spent 5 fabulous days at Casa Escondida and we absolutely loved it! The charming 'cottage' is located just at the edge of Sayulita in a lovely quiet residential area. It is very private, just across the street from the beach with views of the ocean and the soothing sounds of the ocean waves.

The gardens are beautiful with a small piece of jungle directly next to the property - home to tropical birds, butterflies, dragonflies and even an iguana. The cottage itself is well appointed with Mexican flair - a very comfortable king size bed as well as a cute corner nook with a day bed (or additional sleeping quarters for another adult or small children).
The pool was such a bonus - it is the perfect size for a cool down dip and surrounded by beautiful foliage.

The unique outdoor kitchen is huge, equipped with everything you need in a home away from home - although our main use was only the fridge to keep our Cervesas cold and the blender to make margaritas and fresh fruit smoothies! We decided not to cook, as the food in Sayulita and San Pancho (just North of Sayulita) was absolutely amazing.

Everything went very smoothly - from the booking inquiry, the actual reservation, connecting with lovely Maru (the property manager) and the refund on our damage deposit - Iris is very well organized.

We highly recommend this property for singles, couples and small families - and although we had a rental vehicle, Casa Escondida is within easy walking distance to the beaches and town.

Lovely property - can't wait to go back!

Beautiful quiet setting nestled in the woods
My wife and I had a wonderful week staying in this Casa. It was peaceful, comfortable and had all the cooking amenities, air conditioning and a swimming pool. We read books spent time around the pool and walked to beach close by and swam. Sayulita is a little walk , (about 15 minutes) was colourful and vibrant. Maru the lady who looked after the property was amazing and extremely helpful. We will definitely return to this little gem. Many Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Relaxing Anniversary Trip
My wife and I recently celebrated our 20th anniversary at Casa Escondida and I must sat that the property exceeded our expectations. To put it bluntly, the place is immaculate. From the outdoor living area, to the bedroom, to the grounds and pool, Casa Escondida the perfect location for a very private two-person getaway. We have traveled to Sayulita seven times in the past ten years and stayed at several different homes and this one ranks right at the top. In fact, I cannot recall a better bed in any of the places we stayed, which is especially nice for those of us with aging spines! Maru the property manager was most accommodating and the staff, Paty and Ramiro were fantastic, although they seemed to magically come and perform their work when we were away. For those looking for a great location on the North end of town and as much privacy as possible, Casa Escondida is the place to be.

Charming and quiet place.
Two adults and seven-year old child stayed very comfortably in this lovely place.
The swimming pool is refreshing and crystal clear. The garden is colorful and full of life.
Open-air kitchen is the morning's enjoyment.

The walk to town’s center, with many cafes, shops, restaurants and a beach with a quieter surf is 15-20 minutes.

Beautiful place to stay!
Casa Escondida is a lovely place to wake up in and to come home to after a fun day of exploring Sayulita. We loved the outdoor kitchen, the view/sound of the ocean and the pool to cool off in! The property manager was very helpful and friendly. Be aware that Casa Escondida is a bit of a walk from the center of town, but it's a lovely walk and the distance means greater privacy. We'd love to go back to Casa Escondida!

We are a small family of three; Iris, Thom and son Max. 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 Max 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!
