Casa Nicoya in Sayulita is a beautiful three bedroom hilltop vacation home, conveniently located on Gringo Hill, just a 5-7 minute walk from the Plaza and Beach, with ocean views and stunning sunsets to be enjoyed from every floor.

Relax by the saltwater pool, grill up some dinner, nap in a hammock or read a book in one of the many comfy lounge spaces and enjoy the tropical breezes this unique indoor/outdoor floor plan has to offer.

The Main House at Casa Nicoya is comprised of three bedrooms, and three and a half baths on two levels, each with their own fully-equipped kitchen and lounge area. Perfectly situated overlooking twinkly Sayulita you will enjoy taking in the ocean to the North, and breathtaking sunsets to the West.

The first floor includes an en-suite King bedroom with its own spacious bathroom, ceiling fan & A/C unit.

The second floor is like sleeping in a treehouse with sweeping views and jungle breezes. There are two bedrooms, a King bedroom with screened-in glass sliding windows, floor fan & A/C , and an open-air King bedroom with ceiling fan & curtains for privacy, each with their own en-suite bathroom. The King can be converted to two Twins if desired. These two bedrooms share a second kitchen and lounge area. Every bedroom in Casa Nicoya has roomy closets, a state-of-the-art keypad safe for your valuables, hair dryer, fan and mosquito net for your comfort. 

Disconnect completely or work remotely from the hammock, our wifi is strong enough for your Zoom calls.

We have two internet providers  (Sayulita WIFI & Telmex) to maximize signal strength & uptime.

Housekeeping service is twice weekly and drinkable water is provided on every floor. We are happy to share booking information for airport pickup, golf cart rental/delivery, local activities, or share our favorite spots to surf and eat, just ask during booking!

Due to the existance of many high balconies and stone stairs, for safety reasons, we do not rent to families with children ages 2-12. We hope you understand.

NOTE: This listing is for the Main House only. Depending on the dates, the separate lower Casita (not included in this listing) may be occupied by the owner or property manager, Zoey. With this rental you will have a private entrance, exclusive access to the Main House and 24/7 access to the pool. The only thing that is shared with the Casita is the garage entrance & the pool area (but don't worry we'll give you plenty of solo time by the pool if we are there).

Please use the contact form to get in touch, by email or telephone, with any questions and to request a reservation. We look forward to welcoming you to Sayulita!

Stunning Place!
My husband and I stayed here during our wedding week in Sayulita and absolutely loved Casa Nicoya. It is truly even more beautiful in person than in the photos. Zoey welcomed us upon arrival and Lisa was the one we communicated with the most before and after our trip. Both were so wonderful and truly made us feel at home. My bridesmaids and I got our hair/makeup done at Casa Nicoya the day of our wedding and Lisa and Zoey even went out of their way to get us a couple of full body mirrors they didn't originally have in the casita. It was a small but truly sweet gesture that we really appreciated! We will definitely be coming back and looking to stay at Casa Nicoya when in Sayulita. Thank you Lisa & Zoey!

Left nothing to be desired
This property is perched high atop Gringo hill in prime location with simple five minute walking distance to the main plaza. The property itself has a beautiful indoor outdoor feel with gorgeous breezeways and sight-lines. The cleanliness is impeccable. There are two kitchens suitable for cooking. The views from every level are breathtaking. I really enjoyed staying on one of the top level bedrooms because I enjoyed the patio there more than I would have staying downstairs. However, I will say that if privacy is important, and all the rooms are full, staying in the first floor bedroom would afford the best sight and sound privacy. Zoey the property manager had the amazing characteristics of being incredibly available yet invisible, despite living on the lower level below the pool. Normally I have reservations about staying in a place with a host on property. However, this is an exception. She is both knowledgeable and helpful and made our travel and stay seamless. Question not, this is likely the best rental property in Sayulita for the price. Lisa charges a fair price for an incredibly unique architectural phenomenon. You and your loved ones will undoubtedly find it impossible not to be awestruck and wish you could stay forever.

Beautiful home! Excellent service!
My family and I spent five days at Casa Nicoya recently and we absolutely loved it. The home is beautiful and caused a genuine "wow" effect on us the moment we entered. The house was very clean and the pool area was spectacular. Lisa was such a pleasure to work with and Zoey was very attentive to any questions my family or I had regarding our stay. We look forward to visiting again on our next family vacation!

Home away from home
This place is the best!! Lisa was an amazing host - she provided us all the information we needed to have the most awesome visit to Sayulita, including helping us book activities, find the right places for delicious meals and even arranging home-cooked food at times, also in-home massages. The house is lovely plus in a perfect location close to town, and you really feel at home in this beautiful spot. Can’t wait to come back to this place!

I will be back for sure
This place is wonderful - the pictures don’t show it! A fast walk to town, lots of places to relax at the house and the pool were a sanctuary. Lisa was incredibly attentive and helped with cooking breakfast at the house for us and a driver to take us to and from the airport. I wouldn’t change a thing!

Don't hesitate, and book this place asap!
Staying in Lisa's home was more amazing than I expected! Every part of the home was beautiful and well uniquely designed. We stayed here over our wedding week and all the girls got ready at Casa Nicoya. It is so stunning!! The beds were soft and the location was perfect. I will mention that if you sleep in the open air (king bedroom) it can be loud because of all the parties right below. This didn't bother us. When we wanted AC and quiet we would just sleep in one of the other bedrooms.
The housekeeper Chelly cooked us delicious food. We highly recommend it! Zoey was so attentive! She gave us lovely flowers and even brought us up another mirror for all the girls to get ready.
We will be back. Thank you Lisa!

This place is amazing!
Our family loved everything about our stay. Zoey was an amazing host, and a wealth of great knowledge about Sayulita and beyond. The house itself was beautiful, the layout is filled with great places to hang out and enjoy the sights and sounds that Sayulita has to offer. The views are gorgeous and the locals are extremely friendly. We felt like royalty staying at Casa Nicoya for less money than it would have cost us for hotel rooms, we highly recommend it!

Lisa in Sayulita Mexico
Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
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 a lifestyle 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!
