We really enjoyed this casa and it's location in Sayulita. Effie was a great host and communicated really well. There was plenty of privacy and the location was a perfect balance, close to great restaurants/cafes and a short beautiful walk to our favorite beaches. The bed was super comfortable and there was plenty of airflow and ceiling fans to keep it cool. Great kitchen to cook meals and make smoothies, and the bathroom was spacious and clean. There is also a great outdoor space with beautiful plants and flowers, and the jungle life sings in the morning. Great sunsets from this hacienda too!

My own piece of paradise!!!
I have been visiting Sayulita for over a decade now. Every year I looked forward to staying at different hotels and/or haciendas in order to have a different experience each trip. That is until I found Jaja Hacienda. After my first stay there I was hooked! The location is perfect. It is right on the edge of town so close enough to be in the heart of Sayulita in 5 minutes but away from the noise. I love hiking in the jungle and I had perfect access to it from this location. Also, you are about 10 minutes away from Los Muertos beach (my favorite beach as is it not as crowded as the main beaches and still has all the vendor amenities of food and drink). The bed is luxurious and the bathroom is probably 3 times bigger than my one at home! The casita is about 5 years old so appliances and furniture are new but you have a feeling of true Mexican authenticity. And the touches of artwork truly make you feel you are in a special space! There is a great flat screen TV in the living area and I loved to lay on the day bed and watch my favorite NetFlix shows when I wanted to chill. And did I mention the yard!!??? It is gated and large with lush plants/flowers. Effie and Stephen nurture the yard and I always felt that I was in this leafy paradise (plus I had my own banana tree!!!). It was perfect for laying out and if I wanted to take a dip in the pool it was only about 20 steps outside of my room in the complex. The owners take great pride in this property and it shows.

Unique and charming- and unrivaled hosts!
From the start, our hosts were exceptionally helpful and thorough, ensuring we were comfortable with our travels and available to answer any and all questions promptly. (We thought this might taper once we arrived, but quite the opposite- truly the most hospitable, friendly hosts we have ever experienced.)

But the house?!? It is a short walk into town (and around the corner from Yah Yahs!!), just far enough to be away from the hustle and to be close to jungle views. The home was spacious, immaculate, and the decor inspired us endlessly! My husband and I were outside often, enjoying the beautiful garden and quickly fell in love with their dogs.

I can’t imagine a better located or more beautiful place to stay. And truly, the ease you feel when your hosts are as kind and accessible as Effie and Steve elevates this all to the next level!

Nicest Hosts I Ever Had
My daughter and I stayed with Effie and Steve. They were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much. The Hacienda is quiet and close to town and the beach. The grounds are lovely.

We were thrilled with Jaja!
You couldn't ask for better hosts than Effie and Steve at Jaja Hacienda. The location was perfect - easy walking to town and the beach. Yet the casita was just far enough from the hustle and bustle that we could also have our quiet time while sitting in the charming outdoor area, sipping wine and enjoying the glorious weather.

A perfect place to spend time in Sayulita.
We spent the first week of 2019 in this lovely casita which is in a remarkably quiet part of town - just an easy 10 minute walk to the town square in one direction and to Playa Los Muertos in the other. The casita is beautifully decorated with a comfortable bed and fabulous shower. The hacienda is very private - with it's own entrance and large garden area. The owners were upstairs while we were there with their 3 lovely dogs...so you can get your dog fix if you need to! Effie and Steve were great hosts, providing any information we needed...including drawing maps of how to walk to the more secluded beaches. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Jaja Hacienda.

Beautiful place
Effie's place is beautiful, nestled close to the jungle, the local beach and restaurants, but removed from the bustle of the downtown square. She and her husband were very warm and helpful in getting the most out of our stay with local tips and suggestions. The newly designed Casita is fabulous, very clean and has everything you would want for a relaxing stay in Sayulita. We hope to be back soon!

A gorgeous, thoughtfully designer and decorated oasis in Sayulita.
Far enough from the crowds in town but close enough to any amenity, this apartment was perfect for us and our toddler, who had lots of grass and space to play on, plus Effie even arranged for us to have a crib and welcomed us into her home after we checked out. We suggest renting a golf cart or ATV for those staying in the hills, but are so happy we stayed in this area, as it was cleaner and cooler and there were far fewer mosquitos than the areas closest to the beach. Highly recommend!!

Loved this vacation rental!
Effie and Steve are – without exaggeration - the best homeowners you can imagine: always helpful and doing everything to make our stay at Jaja Hacienda just great. The property is located a bit outside of busy Sayulita downtown, yet well within walking distance (5 minutes). The apartment is furnished with love for the detail and comes with all the kitchen utilities you need. It has a separate entrance and lawn, which provides privacy if wanted. Cleaning service was perfect too. We will definitely come back!

Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
My husband and I moved to Mexico in 2014 to spend six months in Sayulita and six months in Squamish, BC, Canada. We love Mexico and its beautiful people. We both began SUP surfing in Mexico and became slightly addicted (in a good way). We hope that visitors to Sayulita will fall in love with this awesome place, like we did!
