❁ Sweeping ocean views are available from every location, including the beds. Your hill climb pay-off. 

❁ Location: 
The Casa is located above the Plaza on Gringo Hill, which is the very steep hill directly behind the plaza. It overlooks downtown Sayulita. The Plaza is a 3-min walk, the main beach and surf break is another 2 minutes. 
❁ Nighttime Noise: 
Please reconsider if you'd like to avoid downtown noise at night. Leyenda is removed to a high perch above the Plaza, but the thump of Sayulita night-life floats up, especially during Easter and Christmas. The trade-off is convenience to downtown and easy access to the main surf-break (literally a 3-4 min walk). Closing windows helps to block the noise, and we provide earplugs and white noise machines to help out.
❁ Hill Climb: 
Please reconsider if mobility is a challenge. The one-block walk back from the Plaza is steep rugged cobblestone, and is followed by flights of stairs. 

❁ Bedrooms:
The flat has two large bedrooms, which have air-conditioning (1-ton AC units), king-size beds, and en-suite bathrooms. Luxury linens promise comfort, and each room is decorated with richly-colored Mexican textiles and art. The master bedroom has sweeping ocean views, and accesses the ocean-view terrace. The second bedroom has peek-a-boo ocean views; it has less direct sunlight, so is perfect for sleeping. 
❁ Ocean-View Terrace:
The terrace has a view that sweeps across the Plaza and onto the ocean. It is furnished for dining, and has a gas grill. It is accessed via the master bedroom.
❁ Kitchen:
The kitchen is fullly equipped, and is a beautiful place to be creative. Block-style skylights above brighten this space with filtered, natural light. A counter-top bar invites friends to sit and chat, and you’ll find high-end cookware, coffee prep, pottery dishes, and beautiful blue glassware. A shared 1/2 bath near the kitchen is conveniently located for common use. 
❁ Living area & Loft bed:
The living area has air conditioning (3-ton AC unit) and is continuous with the kitchen. It has a large dining table that accommodates 6-8 people. The couch is hand-made of solid wood, and a loft functions as an added sleeping area. The carpentry of the loft (ladder, rails and shelving) is hand-built with quality wood and quality workmanship. It is a beautiful nook with a twin-size bed. Together with curtains and star-lights, it becomes a dreamy frame for any child’s imagination. A built-in fan keeps it comfortably cool. This sleeping space is accommodated by the nearby 1/2 bath. 
❁ Carport and garden:
A carport is available to park a car, or to park and charge a golf cart, and to store surfboards. The path from the carport to the house traverses a small garden, which is packed with banana, papaya, heliconia of all types, exotic plants and flowers. As a result, it attracts hummingbirds, chachalacas, and parrots.

❁ Fiber-Optic Internet:
Wifi speeds are 40 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload. The network connection is dedicated to the Casa and is exclusive to guest use only. Expect solid video conferencing and uninterrupted performance.

Property Management: 
-For over 15 years Casa and Casita Leyenda have had the same same property manager with the same cleaning staff ( Cynthia and Mariana) and gardener (Alex). Security is their high priority, and they have an impeccable security record. 
-The property management team has a physical location at the Plaza with open hours daily. They are always there for you. 

Guest access
–Guests have access to the entire Casa, Terrace, Garden and Car Port.
The car port entry and exterior stair is a shared entrance to both Casa Leyenda and Casita Leyenda. Casita Leyenda is located above the Casa. Parking in the car port is dedicated to Casa guests, exit and entry through it is shared with Casita guests.
– Guests staying in the Casita above Casa Leyenda share entrance gates and the stairs. Expect guest traffic past the Casa (stairs leading to Casita) when the Casita is occupied.
– If you need additional sleeping space, ask us about renting Casita Leyenda. It is a free-standing studio apartment located one flight of stairs up. It has a king-size bed and also a couch that will sleep an additional adult. It has spectacular views from the patio and expansive roof-top deck. See the listing for this configuration titled: "Casa & Casita Leyenda"

Other things to note
– Low season: June 1 – October 31.
Low season brings heavy rains to Sayulita. It is also the hottest time of the year. Heat and thunder storms (spectacular to see) put a heavy burden on the maturing infrastructure of Sayulita. Demands on restricted resources cause water shortages and power outages. There are always work-arounds, but just be aware of a degree of unpredictability during the hot and rainy season.
– Alterations:
Please note that we don't accept alteration requests that shorten the reservation when less than 45 days from the check-in date. When less than 45 days to check-in, the listing cancelation policy (50% refund) applies to cancelled dates in the reservation.


Please use the contact form to get in touch with any questions or to request a reservation. Casa Leyenda is the perfect place for a group of friends or family looking to stay in a comfortable home in the center of town. A spacious studio casita is also available on the same property -View here. Or if you require more space, the studio & main home are available as a joint rental for 6-8 guests - View here.

Great Home, Great Host
We had a very enjoyable two week stay at the Casa. Communication with Jennifer before and during our stay was excellent and prompt. Made us feel very welcome. Casa Leyenda is very comfortable, and the views from the balcony are awesome. We even saw whales one day! If this is the area you are looking to stay I would recommend Casa Leyenda without hesitation.

A perfect getaway
Casa Leyenda has many great, tasteful touches to make it charming(art and architecture) and cozy (white noise machines). The view is a breathtaking treat and was more than my expectations. Also, service was quick if there were any issue, even seeking us out to make sure everything is going ok, with 2 cleanings that were included in our week stay. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Perfect for 3 people in our party with 3 bathrooms and separate sleeping areas.

Great location!!!
As has been mentioned, there is some noise from the plaza, but for me this wasn't a problem as I love nightlife. That said, if it's the sort of thing that does cause you consternation, the hosts are very helpful and they were kind enough to provide both white noise machines and earplugs. Overall, staying at Casa Leyenda was a perfect experience, and I hope to get to do so again.

Highly Recommend!
Amazing property in Sayulita, great view and a short walk to everything. Jennifer was a really helpful and communicative host and everything went super smooth. She offered to let us check out late on our last day because there were no other guests arriving. That was sooooo nice. We would definitely recommend and will hopefully stay again our next time in Sayulita

Everything was great!
Very central location perfect for exploring the town. The kitchen is well-equipped for those who want to cook. Wonderful deck overlooking ocean. Mid-stay cleaning during our week at Casa Leyenda was super appreciated given there is no dishwasher and no hot water. Easy walk to the beach. Quite loud until late at night (every night) but closing all windows and running the air conditioning blocked it out. Nicely decorated, basic home. No frills but reliable internet and the owners have a fabulous home manager who is very responsive. Felt very safe

Best place to stay in Sayulita
Casa Leyenda is absolutely gorgeous! The location cannot be beaten. The gourmet kitchen was greatly appreciated. The house is full of beautiful art work and thoughtful little touches-fresh flowers upon arrival just to name one. Brightly colored decorations and throw pillows made the house very festive. The response from property management was almost immediate. In Mexico, things happen-we lost power for about 2 hours and the host was "on it" advising it was temporary and would keep us posted while we were relaxing at the beach. This was our 9th time in Sayulita and honestly will not stay anywhere else when we return. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Loved every minute
We absolutely loved our stay at casa leyenda! Everything from check in to checkout was seamless and easy. The space itself was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything needed for an extended stay. The views are amazing as well! One thing to note is that it can be very loud on the weekends so if you are a light sleeper, i would recommend a sound machine. thank you Jenn, Nancee and David for our stay!
