Best vacation home!
Thank you Lisa for sharing this house! We just stayed at Casa Nicoya with three other couples. It was perfect in every way. We had privacy if we wanted it, and several places to gather when we wanted to. I’m not in the best shape, and the walk wasn’t that bad. Knowing I had a walk ahead of me, gave me the green light to have another taco, beer, margarita or churro! Speaking of tacos, do yourself a favor and printout all of Lisa’s recommendations. She nailed it! We tried as many as we could and were never disappointed. That’s not easy to do when traveling as a party of eight. My favorite part of the house was the poolside palapa. Oh my goodness...the view from there was the best. We had coffee there in the morning, and cocktails in the evening. Also, her property manager Zoey is awesome! Checked on us daily, answered messages within minutes, and was always willing to help with anything we might need. We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner, rather than later!

Beautiful, clean home in great location
Thanks, Lisa, for receiving us in your beautiful home! Besides the beauty of it and the cleanliness, we enjoyed the most and really appreciated all the careful details that were waiting for us, like the nice and useful bags for the beach and the mosquitos repellent, as well as all the other basics provided. Zoey's attention was also great. She was very kind and came as soon as we arrived to Casa Nicoya to receive us. We felt like everything was taken care of. We followed your rules and hope you find everything in order from our side. Thanks again and have a joyful year! Sincerely, Silvestre, Paloma, Toni and Silvia

Book this house!!
Casa Nicoya is wonderful and I totally recommend staying there if you have the chance. It is located up on Gringo Hill so if you have any issues with walking you might want to get a golf cart. Our group got one because we get lazy on vacation! Half the time we'd walk and half the time we'd use the cart. There is a stairway near the house that takes you towards the heart of town and is the quickest and most direct route to town and beach. It's good exercise for sure.

We had the entire house including the 2 level casita that is below the pool level. From top to bottom: Top floor - there are 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining area and living room space. Great views from here! Bedroom 1 is enclosed with a floor fan and an air conditioner. Bedroom 2 is palapa style and is not enclosed but is private enough. Ceiling fan and floor fan but no AC. A couple stayed there with zero issues or complaints and loved the views in the morning. Main floor - the place where we all came together. I would say that it was our main kitchen, living room and dining room.

We had a cook come in to make us dinner a few times and it was a perfect place to have a candle light meal. There is an enclosed bedroom and bathroom with air conditioning on the main floor as well as an additional 1/2 bathroom by the front door. Next level is the pool, outdoor shower and a palapa for shade. Really relaxing and nice views. Next level down is the casita living room and kitchen and down a few more stairs is the enclosed bedroom and bathroom with air conditioning.

The casita is the most private area if you want to be separate from the main house. Towards the end of our trip the water pump for the main house went out. The bad - we were without running water for about 8 hours. The good - Zoey, the property manager, came over right away (about 9:30pm) checked out the situation and had a plumber there by 10. A new water pump was installed in the morning and by the time everyone got out of bed the water was back on. Now you won't have this issue to worry about but if something else does come up I feel like it will be handled quickly and without worries. If Casa Nicoya is available, book it. Communication with Lisa was quick and easy and her property manager Zoey, is knowledgeable and helpful with whatever you might need. Looking forward to my next trip to Sayulita soon!

Dream vacation house!
Casa Nicoya was an absolute dream! We celebrated my best friend's bachelorette here and had an incredible time. The views were incredible and just a five minute walk to the center of town. My only regret was that three days wasn't enough to enjoy all that Lisa's home and Sayulita have to offer!

As shown in the pictures, the space has a really open design which is an incredibly way to really feel like you're enjoying the great outdoors. The weather in Sayulita was incredible when we went (January) so the open air was refreshing. The home was beautifully decorated and really comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Amazing home to stay after our Sayulita wedding
Wow, such an amazing place! We got married in Sayulita in January, and we stayed at Casa Nicoya with some of our family. The property is over several levels which gives the house a fun feeling with several places to relax & is also great for time out when you need it. The pool area was just the right size for having people over for a bbq. Lisa & Zoey took care of every little detail to make us feel at home. The communication between us and Zoey was prompt and smooth.

Georgeous house, great for couples traveling together
Casa Nicoya is such a gorgeous house; I think the sunset views were our favorite part of our stay. We really appreciated little touches like the straw totes that we used for shopping in town, the filtered water on every level, the beach towels, and the suggestions for where to go, what to eat, etc. We also loved our dinner prepared by the housekeeper, Celly - her chile rellenos were the best we had all week.

We rented the entire house, including the lower level casita, and each level of the house is sort of its own separate entity, which allowed for privacy when needed, but also made it easy and comfortable to hang out on any level (kitchen access, bathrooms, etc.). We originally planned to be a group of 7, and ended up a group of 5, but the house would have easily and comfortably accommodated 4 couples.

As others have mentioned, much of the house is open to the elements, which did not bother us at all, and is exactly what we were looking for when choosing this location for our trip. And of course, it is tucked into a hillside, which means traveling up and down stairs in the house and stairs/roads into town is part of the package. We rented a golf cart for our stay, but could have managed without. Also, if you're there on a Friday, definitely be sure to make a trip down to the farmer's market on the other side of the bridge - it was one of the highlights of our trip. If we are ever a big group returning to Sayulita, we'd love to stay here again.

We LOVED our stay at Casa Nicoya!!
It was straight out of a dream! We were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon there. Perfectly perched on a hill just out of earshot from the music downtown but close enough to stroll back and forth from the beach, shops, and restaurants throughout the day. The views are breathtaking from each level and this time of year the vegetation was especially lush.

The home itself is so beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable we could have never left it and still had a phenomenal time. Lisa was very responsive, concise and made us feel genuinely at home. With the welcome packet comes a wealth of resources and travel tips for Sayulita which we referenced often. Be sure to print and pack that info.

Among the recommendations we booked private surf lessons with Risa and Diego through Surf It Out, Encaustic Art lessons with Zoey Pierce, and a snorkeling day trip to Isla Coral through MexiTrex all which were amazing adventures we highly recommend and would do again. We are already planning our next stay there. Thank you Casa Nicoya for making our honeymoon so magical!!! Looking forward to our next visit!

Casa Nicoya is a dream!
From the stunning views and daily sunsets to the refreshing pool and well equipped kitchen, my stay there was wonderful. The house is just a quick walk to town and removed from the noise of the main plaza. The scenery and views of the ocean never got old, and I was always happy to come back from the beach and enjoy a dip in the cool pool and the sunset. Lisa was super communicative and responded quickly to all my questions. She had recommendations for everything from restaurants to airport pickup. I hope to come back sometime soon!!

Great spot for a friend trip!
We had such a great time in at Casa Nicoya in Sayulita! The house is amazing and HUGE allowing everyone in our group to have privacy but also plenty of hang out spots. Lisa helped arrange car pickup from the airport and provided tons of helpful tips. Local property manager Zoey was super helpful and responsive. Great spot for a fun and memorable friend trip!

In 2013, my husband (Eric) and I quit our fast paced Bay Area tech jobs to backpack around the world for a year. And after a year of exploring, we just. couldn't. stop. One year turned into four as we have transitioned into our dream life of working remotely while traveling the world. We now split our time between Sayulita, Lisbon, San Francisco/Tahoe and "somewhere new and exciting". We are always eager to explore new cultures, learn a new language, and make new interesting friends. Extra passport pages are evidence I am living the life I want to live.We are grateful to have traveled to many fabulous places in the world, and found ourselves looking forward every year to our stint in Sayulita. So we decided to plant some roots, and bought a home in Sayulita that allows us to live here in the Casita a few months a year while renting the main house to fellow travelers like you!We welcome you to our dream home in this magical Pueblo and look forward to sharing it with you!
