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.

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.

immaculate estate home in a perfect location to town and beach
Everything about this estate home was just right for our party of 9! I really appreciated the impressive gated entry and yard as we enjoyed our private pool. All of the rooms were large and had ample closet and dresser space so it was very relaxing to be able to spread out. Love the split floor plan, with 2 masters on the bottom floor. We did not cook a lot but it was great to make breakfast and happy hour drinks and apps in the well appointed kitchen. The rooftop sitting area was a great place for us all to meet up. Perfect location, a few minutes walk to the beaches, and a few blocks to all the action, bars and restaurants in town. Our host was very responsive, super nice and I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend this property for your next Sayulida vacation!

Get this house!
This house was perfect for our group of 9 adults. The location cannot be beat at the north end of town. The house is across the street from the beach and steps from restaurants while enjoying the quiet end of town. We had golf carts but these were not completely necessary (though fun!) since town was an easy walk. The top floor was perfect for breakfast or evening cocktails and bird watching.

Perfect Sayulita Location!
The house was clean, the bedrooms were plenty big, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the pool was great for just chilling out and rinsing off after a long day at the beach! It was stocked with great chairs, an umbrella and a surf board which we used a lot. Best part was the location in the quiet northern part of town, only a couple minutes walk from all the action but still the perfect peaceful spot to sip coffee or eat meals and have a relaxing happy hour on the rooftop. Highly recommend this house for friends, couples, and families!!

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.
