Casa Ilusion in Sayulita underwent  a complete remodel three summers ago.  Having a swimming pool was the impetus for the project, but as we considered the possibilities it quickly became apparent that achieving the level of quality we aspired to meant undertaking a complete remodel of the house; new kitchen, all new bathrooms, redesigned floor plans in the bedrooms, new polished stone floors throughout, an expanded master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi and private sun deck. The living room is flanked with new built-in couches. A new beach palapa features the same layout, also with built-in couches. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with beautiful plantings of rare tropical plants. We think you will find Casa Ilusion a unique experience in Sayulita that will entice you to visit us again and again.

Casa Ilusion is the premier beachfront home in Sayulita. Unique beachfront home located on .8 acre of land with 74 palm trees and 120 feet of beachfront. It is the ONLY beachfront home, not condo, ideally located on the north side, and is perfectly accessible to the town center without having to climb any mountains. No car is necessary either. As soon as you enter Casa Ilusion, you will see through the house to the beautifully landscaped grounds, lush with magnificent palms, and to the ocean beyond. Relax under a palapa umbrella, or on a hammock by the ocean, with the sounds of the waves and the ocean breeze. Carry your board 200 yards up the beach to surf the left or right, or walk up the beach to dinner. This house is ideal for 4 adult couples.

In addition to the main house comfortably sleeping 6 itself, there is a beautiful Casita, just steps from the ocean, which comfortably sleeps 3 (King + Single bed). The Casaita is completely enclosed, A/C, a real "Honeymoon Casita" with a Full Bath, and a beautiful palapa style ceiling. In all, there is 4,000 square feet of living space between the main house and the Casita.

Each spacious, air conditioned bedroom offers the highest level of comfort with high end luxury bedding, King beds, complete with their own private bathrooms. The master bedroom features an outdoor Jacuzzi and secluded private deck with an enchanting view of the palms framing the ocean like a perfect picture in paradise.

The main living space comes equipped with all of the amenities you could need; flat screen HD TV & satellite cable. High speed Wi-Fi connection is accessible throughout the house and the grounds.

Casa Ilusion features its own private beach with palm trees situated atop a five-foot seawall so you can either lie in the sun at water's edge on the wide public beach, or find some shade to take a nap in a hammock on our own private beach.  This feature is also unique to Casa Ilusion.

Daily Maid Service is included six days per week (not Sunday).

Concierge service to assist you with arrangements for Airport Transportation, Private Chef, In-House Masseuse, Private Surf Lessons, Private Yoga & Salsa Lessons, Catamaran Tours, Golf Car rentals, Dinning Reservations and anything else you can think of!

Amazing beautiful beach front home
First time to Sayulita, had a group of 8. Home was beautiful, comfortable for our entire group. Spent a lot of time in pool and quick access to town was easy by foot or golf cart if preferred. Carlos, Carman, and Yvvis were all very attentive to our needs.

Casa Ilusion--A Dream Come True
We had a wonderful time at Casa Ilusion last month when we spent a week there in preparation for our son's wedding. There are four equally beautiful bedrooms (one is in a totally separate palapa or casita) with a pool, huge yard facing the beach with a cabana and hammocks, and wonderful great room for buffet dinners (or outside) and just socializing. The video on the website is the way it really is!

Carlos Sanchez, property manager, arranged everything perfectly for us: airport transportation, grocery shopping, information about interesting sightseeing such as the Friday open-air artisanal market, massages, and babysitting. He doesn't disappoint! The very best!

We were seven adults--three couples, one single friend, and two little girls 3 and 5. No one felt cramped or imposed upon. Our daughter offered a yoga class to about ten friends on the open lawn, the house "perambulatory" cat entertained the little ones, and we all relaxed and enjoyed our son's wedding a few houses down from Casa Ilusion.

The neighborhood is very quiet, in spite of being an easy golf-cart ride to the village of Sayulita. That made our stay even more relaxing and peaceful. The young adults could party all night in Sayulita's bar scene and leave us out of it.

Just a few things to know--the drinking water is in the water cooler. Do not drink anything else nor eat salads or raw vegetables. Quite a few young people were sick from doing so. The septic tank has to be respected. And Carmen, the housekeeper and chef, is wonderful and also has a shaman's touch for any aches and pains.

A spectacular stay in a house that met all of our expectations. With the remodeling (which we can't even imagine needs to be done, except for the hot tub), it will be even more of a wonder!

Beautiful and comfortable retreat!
Casa Ilusion is right on a spectacular stretch of beach within easy walking distance of the centre of Sayulita. It has a beautiful view of the beach, framed by lush greenery and palm trees, visible from all bedrooms and principal rooms which face the ocean. The villa is particularly good for couples travelling together, as all bedroom set-ups and facilities are comparable, but also would be great for a small family gathering. Although the pool is not huge, it is refreshing, quite deep and of a reasonable size given the proximity of the sandy beach. Although close to town, the villa is in a quiet position away from the hubbub, and has multiple private spots within the property to relax. The manager Carlos and his staff are excellent. We organized two delicious home-made authentic Mexican meals prepared by Carmen to supplement our own culinary efforts during our stay, and also tried out some of the very good and affordable restaurants in town. Carlos helped us with transportation from the airport and locally and responded immediately to every little request. The one issue we had — an uninvited possum in the roof of the casita, harmless but nocturnal noisy — was dealt with promptly and fairly by the owners. Although we found the villa absolutely lovely, the owners plan some careful upgrades so that it will soon be even more inviting. We definitely plan to return.

Perfect Beach-front getaway
Can't say enough good things about Casa Ilusion...the staff, the facility, the location, etc - all superb. My only reason not to give a glowing review would be to thwart future guests from coming so that I can come more often!

Great Staff: Carlos the house manager is great. Before our trip he arranged cars/shuttles, had all of our groceries picked up & delivered to the house (a great way to optimize your time), he arranged paddle boards, took us surfing, picked up a visitor and more. He checked in with us most every day either in-person or by text just to be sure everything was ok. When we arrived he was there along with Carmen - she made margaritas & guacamole (both delicious). We hired Carmen to cook meals for us 2 evenings (doing this on the day we arrived was great so we could just immediately relax) - she's a great cook - everything was fresh and delicious. She and Ana Luisa kept the house spotless - we had 4 children under 5 at the home so I'm sure there were cheerios and whatnot that would inadvertently get dropped on the floor but they really kept the house clean - no bugs/ants/dust/etc. Great staff!

Quiet & Close Location: I really think this is the perfect location. It's a 5-min casual stroll to town either by beach or straight down 1 street, so when you're at the house its quieter, not rowdy, it feels close to everything but you still have privacy and peace. There are neighboring homes and small hotels so people are on the beach but you always have your own space without a crowd. Yet you can get to all that Sayulita has to offer in less than 5-minutes. Within 2-3 blocks there is a pizza place, hamburger place, grill, etc or you can go 6-8 blocks further to the heart of town with lots of restaurants, shops, bars, etc. In total its probably 3/4 mile.

Beautiful & Clean Property/House: My understanding was that the house was recently sold to a new owner (literally a few days prior to our visit), and they immediately had done some work to further fix it up and make it nice/safe. We really had no complaints but I believe they plan to make further improvements. It's tastefully decorated, was clean, the grounds were well maintained (a gardener came daily), and the view was perfect. A pool placed close to the home, a little private beach, and then access to the public beach & ocean just a few steps from the property.

Some friends of ours saw photos while we were there and they asked us where we went & are thinking of going.

Again we had a great stay, loved the property & the staff & hope to be back soon!

Pretty tough to beat the location, property, proximity to the beach and town, massage tent, the local Bar next to the house --- Erik serving fresh fruit margarita’s, I could go on and on. We had two families with 3 children and everyone loved laying in the hammocks, swimming in the pool, reading in the lounge chairs and watching the gorgeous sunset from the private beach. Carlos the house manager was in contact with us a couple weeks prior to our arrival and arranged vehicles with car seats for children, worked with my wife to have Carmen (house chef) to cook us a wonderful meal at our request and pretty much accommodated all other personal requests—i.e. from bringing us Coconut water from PV on his day off. Carmen the chef was also always available to baby sit at very reasonable rates. I cannot say enough positive things about Carlos and his staff. We hope that this property is available for years to come! See you next year.

Life as a Postcard!
Our family just spent a wonderful week in Sayulita staying at this amazing property. We had two families with 5 children and everyone loved laying in the hammocks, swimming in the pool, reading in the lounge chairs and watching the gorgeous sunset from the private beach. The house manager, Carlos, was super helpful and made sure our stay was comfortable and fun. Kande made us a delicious dinner and everyone LOVED her salsa! We can't wait to come back and stay at Casa Ilusion again. It was a dream!

Amazing house and perfect experience
Words can't explain how awesome this place is. The house is gorgeous with a hard to find 4 King bed bedrooms. All AC rooms with beautiful open spaces on the main and upper floors as well. Pool is gorgeous. Maid and yard crew are wonderful. House is a nice little walk from downtown but we chose golf carts which stay safe behind the automatic gates. Carlos the property manager is absolutely amazing and gets the best deals on Everything! He knows everyone and leverages that for you! All in all, this was our favorite ever vacation!

The Pictures Don't Even Do It Justice!
The place is incredible! The finishes and the luxury are above par - we absolutely loved it! Not to mention the amazing view that grabbed us from every area within the house - we felt like we were living in a post card! Additionally, Candi and the rest of the house staff - were fantastic. And, special kudos to Carlos - he was a great resource for information and services - it felt like we had been friends with him for years. We did not want for anything.

We traveled with two families of 4 (2 adults, 2 children), and a mother-in-law. Plenty of room to socialize as a group, and to escape to your own private retreat. We will definitely be back!!!

Beautiful Home
I want to thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home! I would rank it as the best full on family vacation we have ever had! We loved sayulita, we surfed, ate and chilled at Casa Illusion. Most importantly-my wife loved it and she is sooo deserving of the beautiful vacation we had!

Pilos I miss already! He took us surfing, he hung with us and really just became a "brother" for the week! At the end of the stay we met Lori and their children and my 7 year old had a great time with her kids..

Anyway-such great memories and we hope to return soon to your wonderful home and some more good times!

Thank you for all
