Leyenda is located above the central 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 on weekends. Expect extreme volume during festivals & holidays like Easter, Christmas & Carnival. Closing windows and running the AC is recommended to block 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 several flights of stairs. 

The tradeoff is convenience to downtown and easy access to the main surf-break (literally a 3-min walk). 
❁ The main beach & surf break are directly below Leyenda on the same street, just 3 blocks. No need to pack a bag for the beach. Just walk down with your board, or zip in for a quick swim. Then rinse off in the garden before heading in for breakfast. It is just easy!
❁ Restaurants, bars and cafes are right outside the gate. Taxis for extra-Sayulita trips are on the Plaza just 2 blocks away.
❁ Downtown (centered around the Plaza) is at your fingertips and is brimming with beautiful boutiques, dining experiences, and popular nightlife. 

❁ Casita Leyenda is a luminous circular studio with expansive windows on all view-facing walls. 
❁ The king-size bed has an ocean view, as does the couch, which easily sleeps another adult. 
❁ The patio has a sweeping view over Sayulita continuing to the ocean and bay beyond. It is furnished for lounging and dining, and includes a gas grill.
❁ The Rooftop deck has the most exhilarating views. From here you can check for incoming swells and see all the way to San Pancho. During winter, you can also watch for whales. This space offers shade, and is furnished with a dining table & chairs for six, a chaise lounge and chairs designed for relaxing. It is an expansive space, and is wonderful for morning yoga, afternoon home-spa services, and sunset dinner & drinks. Yoga mats are provided. 
❁ The kitchen is fully equipped with a mid-size refrigerator, oven, gas stove, microwave, water kettle, blender, toaster, drip coffee maker, stove-top espresso maker, and coffee grinder. All the essentials are there for you. 
❁ Bathroom is full. Shower is hot with high pressure.
❁ Air conditioning ( (1-ton AC unit)

❁ Bedrooms:
The flat has two large bedrooms with AC, king-sized 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 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:
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. 
❁ Loft bed:
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. This sleeping space is accommodated by the nearby 1/2 bath. 
❁ Carport and garden:
A secured carport is available to park a car or golf carts, and to store surfboards. It has an outlet for charging golf carts. 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.

Casa wifi 40 Mbps download, 30 Mbps upload. 
Casita wifi 75 Mbps download, 37 Mbps upload. 13 ms Latency.
The fiber-optic network connection at both houses is dedicated to the respective house and is exclusive to guest use only. Internet access is both fast and reliable, and is unequivocally the best in the area. The property manager in Sayulita is vigilant about maintaining connectivity and speed. She is always available in case of issues.  

The entire property is wholly private to you and is extraordinarily safe. It is accessed through two digitally locked gates. The first gate enters a car port, and the second exits the garage to access the Casa and Casita. A security wall prevents entry otherwise. Property management makes safety and security their highest priority.

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. 
– Separate Rentals:
Casa Leyenda and Casita Leyenda are also rented separately (4-night minimum stay). Each has a dedicated listing complete with many current reviews. If this is of interest to you, see below for liniks to the listings. Casa Leyenda includes parking, but does not have access to the rooftop deck. Casita Leyenda has access to the rooftop deck, but does not include parking.

A Slice of Heaven
Absolutely incredible stay. Gorgeous views, close to everything, comfortable, and so well decorated. The wifi password on the site wasn’t accurate on the first floor, but the password on the router worked fine. There was water on the floor from the fresh water spout but Nancee had to cleaned up immediately with no issue when we were at dinner. She also gave us wonderful recommendations for where to eat and what to do! She was so responsive and helpful, and we had an amazing time. We can’t wait to come back!

Do Yourself A Favor!
This spot is an absolute gem. Very well located to the lively plaza. But the rooftop and it's views were what took the cake. We cooked dinner on the grill and ate while watching the sunset. You can wake up the next morning and walk 5 mins for a swim in the ocean. Strong recommend.

1000/10 Recommend!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Nancy and David's place. My husband and I stayed in the casita, and our children stayed in the casa. The moment we arrived, we felt right at home! Both places were immaculately furnished and clean. The attention to detail made our stay comfortable and relaxing.

We were able to walk everywhere – restaurants, cafes, shops, and all of the beaches in Sayulita. If you want to travel outside Sayulita, there are taxis down the street.

The communication was five stars. The checking-in and checking-out directions were very clear. While in Sayulita, Jennifer was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had.

I highly recommend the casa and casita. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

Great Location!
The place was beautiful and comfortable and the property manager was super responsive. We had 5 adults and used both of the apartments. The place was well stocked with the essentials for cooking. The mid week cleaning was great - we were ready for new beach towels. Overall loved the location but it is definitely not quiet at night. Most nights it is noisy until about 11 or so. One night the noise lasted til 4am. Even so, I would definitely stay here again - it is a very convenient location to beach and all Sayulita has to offer.

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!

Nothing better than this
This is my 3rd time staying at Casa Leyenda over the past 5-10 years and my first with my wife/kids. They loved it! The charming decor, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen, great service, central near-the-plaza location, fast internet, warm showers, it is as close to perfect as you’ll find. Kids will love the loft nook/bed. Bring some ear plugs to help sleep through Sayulita’s nighttime music.

Incredible & memorable week in Sayulita!
We had an amazing Christmas vacation in Sayulita at beautiful Casa Leyenda! Staying here was like living in a cozy treehouse! We rented both the main casita and the upper casita as we were traveling with our 2 daughters. Both spaces are clean and comfortable with lots of amenities provided and a very local Mexican beach town vibe. My wife loved the hand-made pillow covers so much she found them in town and bought a couple to bring home with us! The upper casita where my wife and I slept has spectacular views of the town and the ocean. It was lovely to sit outside on the patio drinking coffee in the mornings and relaxing in the evenings with our beautiful views. Our daughters stayed in the main Casita and felt independent to have such a nice apartment of their own. The home is located one block uphill from the center of town and less than 10 minute walk to the main Sayulita beach. There are lots of great restaurants and shops and although the beach was packed for the Christmas holidays, it has a laid-back family vibe and the only drawback are the vendors trying to sell you food and souvenirs at your beach chair. But...we got massages on the beach for only $25US and had an incredible week! We went to the nearby Playa De Los Muertos one day, a quieter beach only 15 minutes walk from the home which takes you through a beautiful graveyard to a nearby cove. We also rented mountain bikes and cruised trails on the north side of town and spent another day on a catamaran swimming and seeing lots of humpback whales! The only Con about the trip was that because the Casitas are close to town, the Christmas Holidays brought a late-night party atmosphere with a night club starting up around 11pm and loud music thumping until 2am. The host was upfront about noise from the town so it was not a surprise, just something to be noted. She provided earplugs and we ended up sleeping in the main casita a few nights with the A/C on which helped block out a lot of the noise. All in all, we had an incredible week and a great stay in Nancee and David's home and look forward to coming back to stay again!!

Perfect location close to the heart of town. Be prepared for a climb up a hill but the house is beautiful and perfect for groups of six. We would stay there again.
