Description

CASA GALA in Sayulita... for all you "Gringos in Paradise"

The house made famous by the book "Gringos in Paradise" written by Barry Golson, a true-life story of Barry and his wife Thia's adventures in Sayulita, Mexico, the friends they made and the Dream House they decided to build in the lively, lovely village of Sayulita.

Newly remodeled December 2018, Casa Gala is a beautiful 5 bedroom, 4 bath house, complete with a private pool and tropical garden within a very private and secure walled compound. Steps to the beach and ten minute walk downtown.

Sayulita, for those of you new to the area, is a vibrant surfing and fishing village tucked into the edge of the jungle, about 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. It was the paradise Barry and Thia picked after traveling throughout Mexico. In August of 2018 they decided to move home to the USA and I took over where they left off, buying the house and remodeling, completed in December 2018.

With accommodation for up to 11 guests, Casa Gala is a handsome Spanish Colonial home on the quiet north side of Sayulita, just a 10-minute walk South to the life and color of the plaza and a 10-minute walk North to the Jungle and trails.

There are several excellent restaurants and stores one block away too, where you can get food, cervezas, rent golf carts and book tours. The house is in a perfect location on the main beach road, 1 block and a 2-minute walk away from the ocean, on the tranquil side. (Sayulita’s main beach can be crowded in high season.)

The first thing you see upon entering the imposing wrought-iron gates are 2 tall "aqueduct" arches, one of which cascades water into the 30-by-15 pool. There is an enticing thatch-roofed "palapa" poolhouse with its own 1/2 bath room. Through the arch is a "secret mini-garden" behind lush foliage, with a swing chair and a fountain. There's an outdoor shower where you can rinse off your sandy feet.

On the ground floor, there are 2 gorgeously-appointed Queen-sized bedrooms with custom-carved head boards and furniture, each with a private bathroom decorated in hand-made talavera tiles as well as patio door access to the garden and pool area. There's a luxurious newly remodeled kitchen with high end appliances and a breakfast bar. A new kitchen water filter provides safe drinking water and ice.

The living/dining great room has huge sliding glass doors which can open to the garden and pool area, which glows at night from the lanterns along the hacienda wall. There is also a TV family room with a large sofa, huge DVD collection, Netflix & DirectV that can be closed off when it's cool for TV-watching and sofa-loafing, or air-conditioned when it’s warm.

Upstairs is a self-contained level, with three more bedrooms. There's a newly remodeled suite with Cali-King bed, lounge, patio doors to access the terrace and a new en-suite bathroom. There's another Queen-sized bedroom with terrace patio doors and a smaller bedroom, with a bunk bed with a Full-sized lower bed and Twin-sized upper and its own sink. These 2 bedrooms share a full bath, with the shower and toilet separate from the sink area. The long terrace overlooks the pool and garden with chaises where you can lounge, read, and watch the life of the village.

All bedrooms have new AC units and ceiling fans to keep you cool.

There is also a new set of stairs to a large rooftop pavilion with lounge and dining areas where you can take in the sea breezes. You’ll have a view of the village and surrounding mountain and jungle, and a peek through the palms at the ocean. The pavilion is enclosed by wrought-iron railings and lanterns, perfect for entertaining.

Other amenities: laundry room with a washer and dryer, bed linens, bath and beach/pool towels, beach chairs and umbrella, ironing board and iron, hairdryers, vitamix, surf board. Twice-weekly maid service which includes cleaning, doing the dishes, change of linens & towels. If you need more maid service please enquire.

As you probably know, you can stay for 2 weeks and not visit all of Sayulita’s restaurants. There’s a wealth of beach activities, including Sayulita’s own world-class surfing, plus horseback riding, nearby snorkeling, whale-watching, ATV tours, bird watching tours, hiking, mountain biking and canopy/zipline tours.

Please use the contact form to get in touch with any questions or to request a reservation.

See you on the beach!

Gary.

10/10 Recommend
Wonderful and spacious home. We were with four couples and it was perfect. Really close to town so easy to walk everywhere. Road can be a bit noisy but that’s the trade-off for close to town.

Best hospitality experience anywhere in the world
From the moment we booked this location....the owner Gary was super responsive with excellent communication. We arrived to find the home exactly how it is displayed in the photos. The distance to the main town was not bad at all and super close to the beach where we got to release baby sea turtles from the turtle camp. The home and surrounding areas were all very clean and the local residents were so friendly. The views were also amazing. Concha and the rest of the staff were very professional and made everything so accommodating as well. AND I can’t forget to mention that it is close to one of the most AWESOME bars in town that holds one of the best bartenders in...Big Tony.... who makes the best margaritas in all Sayulita. I would 100% recommend this beautiful and relaxing home to all ages. Can’t wait to visit Sayulita again just to stay at this same location all over again!!

The perfect getaway
Casa Gala is perfect for families or couples traveling together. It is exactly as described and shown in pictures and has everything you need. The beach is super close - just 200 yards away.

The pool was perfect temperature and the fountain is a nice touch FYI- if the pump isn't running the timer on the wall kicks it on. Super convenient to have a 1/2 bathroom out by the pool too.

Several restaurants just a few steps away and the center of town is less than 1/2 mile so an easy walk.

Gary the owner has great communication with you and Concha is there locally for any help you need.

In all, I would recommend Casa Gala to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Absolute Paradise!
The only thing I regret is not staying longer. Beautiful home, comfortable, simply perfect.

We had a rental car but it really is not necessary unless you need to go to another town. Walking distance from beach and a few restaurants and local crafts market.

Overall great experience!

Perfect for our family!
Such a perfect home for our kids and grand kids. Spacious enough for everyone to gather and to spread out. Secure, close to the beach, and roomy, this house is perfect for your large group.

Pretty much has everything you need as well as a little history, the house is the subject of the book "Gringo in Paradise" and has been recently reappointed and is now available as a guest house.. We did not need a car or a golf cart as we could walk everywhere.

I'm originally from England but having lived in Laguna Beach, California for 25 years I decided in 2018 to create a new adventure in Sayulita. Needless to say "El Pueblo Magico" is a very special place! I love to travel and when I do I really enjoy letting others experience my home as opposed to it sitting empty and have met such great people, from all over the world, along the way.
