Super stylish and comfy casa/casita in a prime location.
Casa Mar Del Sur is a wonderful place for a small group (~6-8 people) to stay during your time in Sayulita. The design of the casa is lovely, with traditional Mexican style and lots of vibrant colors and decor. We were 6 people but ended up renting the attached casita as well for a little more personal space at barely any additional cost. The pool and palapa are lovely, as is the crow's nest space on the rooftop where we got to watch a few night time lightning storms (we were here during rainy season). There is also a private driveway for golf cart storage, which is easily the best and most recommended way to get around Sayulita. Finally, the beach is basically across the street and town is only a 10 min walk, so this is an excellent location all around.

There were a couple hiccups worth mentioning with the place. The extra toilet paper and towels are kept in a locked room only accessible by housekeeping, and the casa is only serviced every other day. Twice we were sleeping when the cleaner came, so we did not have our towels/TP replaced and ran out. A few more rolls in each bathroom to avoid this would be nice. We also had the keypads on the front door and door to the casita start to beep randomly at us, and then finally completely disable during the middle of our stay. Luckily the property manager is very kind and responsive and had the locks reset fairly quickly, but there was still a period of a day where we had to use the driveway door+key to enter and exit, meaning all of our guests had to leave/arrive at the same time - a bit inconvenient.

Overall I thought this was a lovely accommodation that was fairly priced and a lot more comfortable/stylish than many other places I've seen in Sayu. I hope the few quirks get worked out with facilities, but I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic location for single friends and/or couples!
This is a great rental for single friends and couples! Casa del Sur is conveniently located -close to town but away from the super busy/loud area. The house(s) have full equipped kitchens, comfortable beds, amazing open-air common spaces and was spotlessly clean. The property manager made everything so easy- arranged airport transportation, golf cart delivery, chef service when requested and responded immediately when we had a question or an issue.

Amazing for a group trip
Our group of 7 had an amazing week in this home in Jan 2023. The location is fantastic, so close to the quieter part of the beach but with still lots happening around (yoga studios, cafes, bars). There are so many different spots to relax, the kitchens are beautiful, and the beds are comfy. Eric was fantastic to communicate with. We looked at so many different houses trying to make a decision, and so glad we landed on Casa Mar Del Sur. If it's important to anyone, the internet was also really good and fast (some in our group had to do a few zoom calls).

Very, very, very LOUD!!
This home is on a busy street and it is loud, ALL NiGHT LONG! We could hear everything from the restaurant next door, to the motorcycles, cars and golf carts driving by to a simple sound as a person walking by. Our first night was New Years Eve so we thought that might be why, but the noise continued all week long. We had to sleep with ear plugs on. It was miserable. The pool and patios never had sun on them the entire time we were there so we weren’t able to enjoy a leisurely day at the pool. The dust from the road came into the house and on the grounds so all was very dusty. Sylvia, the housekeeper did a great job managing this while she was there, but it would come back after she left. There is a washer and dryer, but you are not allowed to use it. It would have been nice since our clothes were always covered with dust. The home ran out of water 3 times. It was always when we needed to shower after a long day at the beach. The manager did send someone out immediately to fix it each time, but it was still a inconvenience. Also, for those of you who don’t know, you are not permitted to flush toilet paper in this home. It was a surprise to us after staying in Sayulita at other homes before and never needing to do this. There are many other negatives I could list, but this should paint a pretty clear picture. The only good thing about this house was the close location to the beach. After the first night, I spent 2 days looking to move, but it was the busy season so we were stuck there. We tried to work out a partial refund with the owners, but the best they offered us was a free two night stay. This felt insulting and ridiculous since we were so unhappy while we were there, we couldn’t imagine coming back and staying here again. Sayulita is wonderful, we have family who lives there, we love it and will continue to visit, but we will NEVER stay in this house again. It is not worth the $5000+ we paid for the week.

Response from Owner/Manager on 01/26/2023

Hi Molly.

Again, we are so sorry your stay was affected by the noise. We understand how difficult it was for you arriving on New Years Eve, with all the chaos and fireworks, after your group had been up since 4am traveling. And then the neighbors happened to run out of water late at night and the water pump truck came in the middle of the night to fill their cistern. Luckily those are both rare one-time events. We felt horrible about it and continue to apologize, but we were hoping you would understand that it was totally out of our hands. We did bring you a large selection of fans the following day to drown out the noise, and you told us it was much better the following night. As we told you, the washer and dryer are only for the housekeeper, but she was always happy to do your laundry for you. The water pump issue was fixed very quickly, you were without water for an hour or two at the most. We immediately bought a brand new pump for the house to prevent future problems. Not flushing toilet paper is the protocol in all of Mexico. They just don’t have the same infrastructure as the US and Canada, but with daily housekeeping, we have never had complaints about that before. As you mentioned that your last trip to Sayulita you stayed in a house which costs about 60% more than us, and isn’t even near the beach, we can imagine that you have very high standards, and there’s nothing wrong with that. We are just happy that everyone else who stays with us loves the house.

Great Home, Great Host!
Our group of 5 teenagers and 2 parents had a wonderful time at Eric's place, and renting both sides of the home was ideal for our group. We felt it was safe enough to let the kids go out and about on their own, and it was easy for everyone to access without needing to worry about keys. We were on the quieter side of the beach for swimming and hanging out, and a close walk to the Southern Beach to use the boogie boards (provided), rent surfboards, take surf lessons, walk to the town center for all the bars and restaurants. I walked one block and had a 10 am massage, with the sound of the waves in the background. We watched the World Cup Finals at the restaurant next door, Chaman Creative Kitchen. Great smoothies! Ice cream shop one block away... coconut ice cream, my favorite. Eric's place is a great place to relax with family or friends.

Can't wait to come back!
This house is gorgeous! Everything about it was perfect. From the historical authentic Mexican feel, to the gorgeous architecture and decor it was fabulous. The location is perfect and around so many restaurants but far enough away from the central part of town. A little noisy because it’s on the road, but so minor in comparison to how amazing the house is. Definitely the quieter part of town. The pool and the top roof lounge was the favorite of the group. Will definitely be coming back!

10/10 Recommend
We highly recommend Eric’s place. The place has traditional flair and you feel like you’re getting an authentic experience in their sayulita rental.

Eric and his assistant Sofia are so helpful. They helped us with transportation and secure awesome surfing lessons.

It has so much character and it is across the street from the beach. I think the north side is the best area in sayulita as you’re walking distance to the restaurants but it’s quiet so you don’t hear too much noise.

Book this spot! You’ll be happy you did :)

Perfect Location!

Love This Place :)
We absolutely adore casa mar. The perfect place for a single or multiple families. There is a second property Luna mar you can rent out as well if needed. It isn’t vacant if you don’t so everything is still private but we ended up renting it as well for morning and evening hangs in the outdoor kitchen. The house is on the north side of town which is our favorite place to stay. So quiet and quant. One block from the beach and just a short walk into town. On top of that Eric and his crew are amazing host. You can’t go wrong staying here!
