❁ 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. 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. 
❁ Convenience:
The trade-off is convenience to downtown and easy access to the main surf-break (literally a 3-4 min walk). Restaurants and cafes are just steps away. Downtown is at your fingertips and is brimming with beautiful boutiques and dining experiences. Taxis for extra-Sayulita trips are right on the Plaza. The main beach is directly below Leyenda on the same street, just 3 blocks.

❁ 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.

– Guests have access to the entire Casa, Terrace, Garden and Car Port.
– The car port entry and exterior stair is shared with guests at Casita Leyenda. Casita Leyenda is located a flight of stairs above the Casa.
– Expect guest traffic past the Casa (stairs leading to Casita) when the Casita is occupied.
– Carport parking and the charging station are dedicated to Casa guests exclusively.
– If you need additional sleeping space, Casita Leyenda (4-night minimum) will expand your number of beds. Casita Leyenda is a free-standing studio apartment located a 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 from an expansive roof-top deck.

Other things to note
– Low season: July 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.
– Optional house keys:
All doors have digital locks. Each door also has an additional dead bolt lock, the key for which can be found in the safe. This key is optional to use if you’d like additional security. The loss or damage of this key will require a re-keying fee of $100.

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.

Beautiful Home
We had a great stay in Sayulita! The house is very comfortable. For most of the day, the sun doesn’t hit the house directly so it stays at a good temp inside - we didn’t even need to use the A/C. The house is situated up a steep hill right above the main square, so it has easy access to everything. As advertised, it’s noisy, but the white noise machines are a big help for sleeping. The house is well maintained, and it was great to have a complementary cleaning visit during our trip.

10/10 Recommend
This place was charming and decorated beautifully. Usually the pictures make it look better than it is but in this case, it’s even better than the pictures. We loved our stay. Yes, it’s loud and up a steep hill but we knew that ahead of time so no surprises and the exercise helped ease the guilt of all the delicious guacamole we consumed.
Jennifer was excellent with quick responses. All in all, we were very pleased with our time there.

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.

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
