Casa Rana Verde in Sayulita is located at "Villas Rana Verde", Sayulita's premiere estate property on a beautiful gently sloped hillside with 360-degree views of the ocean and jungle, and only 75 yards from the ocean, in a tropical paradise in wonderful, sunny Sayulita! We are across the street from the ocean, just a 2 minute walk on cobblestone to the sand. We are in the exclusive "Pedregoso" neighborhood on the north side of Sayulita directly across the street from Villa del Oso. There are 3 villas on the property, but each one is separate and private from each other. Each villa has its own private pool, gourmet kitchen, living area, gardens, etc. In fact Casa Rana Verde has 2 private HEATED, ocean view pools that are connected by a cascading waterfall. The wading pool is perfect for children and is right next to the adult pool. Nothing is shared between the 3 villas except for the free laundry, gated entry and cobblestone parking area. Our location is perfect for Events with capacity for 80 guests. Please view our Event Venue page.

The villa contains three bedrooms and five bathrooms offering accommodations for up to nine adults + children. Guests are assured tranquility and peace of mind during their vacation in this architecturally designed villa. Casa Mikayla and Casa Pajaro are close by, but located behind landscaping and walls to insure maximum privacy for all 3 villas. Make sure to view slide show of the panoramic ocean views and the incredible heated swimming pools in our tropical garden. The living area with its panoramic ocean views and huge gathering space is a great place to meet with the whole group, and dining there is a joy. We live right next door to the estate to insure that your vacation will be all you expect it to be. Our driver can pick you up at the airport in an air conditioned Suburban stocked with cold drinks. Our cook makes the best Mexican food in all of Mexico! We offer any or all meals to your group. Everyone loves our cook's meals. Wireless internet is included and we have free phone calls to and from the US and Canada. There is a free laundry that is solely for guests useage.

We are located about 1/2 mile from the village in an area of private villas away from the all night noise of the village with its roosters, soccer field events and cantinas. Your quiet night of sleep is assured. The short 10 minute walk to town can be along the pristine, sandy beach or a low traffic paved road.

This fully-furnished home features ocean and jungle views from every room. Enjoy our incredible living area that is 60 feet across while watching the sun set over the ocean! We have one of the best ocean views in Sayulita! All rooms are furnished with the finest amenities such as Ralph Lauren towels, 400 thread count all cotton sheets and all cotton linens, down and other comfortable pillows, best mattresses, Guatemalan fabrics for all curtains and pillow covers, furnishings that will allow you all the comforts you need while enjoying our incredible villa! Our kitchens are fully stocked with as many small appliances, frying pans, wine glasses, coffee cups, plates, bowls, utensils, etc. as you have in your own homes. Everything in the kitchen is in abundance. All the kitchenware is matching Fiestaware, matching high quality flat ware, hand loomed Guatemalan and Mexican all cotton napkins, everything the best!

Remember many villas discourage children, but we cater to kids, we have (2) cribs and (2) highchairs, so no need to rent them. Our kiddie pool attaches to the main pool connected by a cascading waterfall. The kids love it, the parents love it even more! We have babysitting services available from our Mexican family of over 14 years, who are really part of our family. Our driver has multiple childseats for the trip from the airport.

The beach across the street is one of the most pristine, sandy, private beaches you have ever seen, with the cleanest water in Sayulita. There is great surf fishing on the beach right in front of the estate. The fisherman regularly catch snook, sea bass, grouper and many other varieties. It is not unusual to be the only person on the beach for 1/4 mile in either direction. It is a nesting grounds for Leatherback turtles who can be seen in the early morning and late evenings hours during the summer months laying their eggs or hiding the nests before their return to the ocean.

The best tropical garden in Sayulita is at your doorstep within private, gated grounds that feature over 20 varieties of palm trees, plumeria trees, many varieties of hibiscus, many varieties of bouganvilla, sweet jasmine everywhere, birds of paradise, gardenia, corona, maguey, abundant catii, almond trees, jamaica, bananas, papayas, Mandarin oranges, Persian limes, and much more.

Amazing Stay at Villas Rana Verde!!
Let me just start off by saying that the owners of Villas Rana Verde, Barry & Connie were absolutely incredible to work with from start to finish! We visited Sayulita in May of 2019 to start planning our June 2020 wedding. Barry spent an afternoon giving us a tour of his beautiful property, telling us all about Sayulita and some of his favorite spots. All of this before we even signed to rent the property. We had looked at several other properties for our wedding guests, but they just didn't compare to Rana Verde. We decided to rent out the entire property for our guests. Throughout the next several months, Barry kept in communication with us, answering all of our questions and just genuinely helping with anything we needed. He gave us great recommendations for airport transfers and cart rentals. I recommend using his suggestions as they have been in Sayulita for quite some time and have great relationships with vendors down there. When we would say who sent us, they knew Barry and Connie by name. When Covid hit, we had to cancel our June 2020 date. We reached out to Barry and he was so kind and understanding about everything. He offered to give us our deposit back rather than rescheduling if we needed to do so, which really just speaks volumes to the kind of people you are renting from. We knew we wanted to keep our wedding plans and just push them back a year so we opted to reschedule. Again, they were SO accommodating with everything! Our guests RAVED about the villas! The staff, who have all been there over 14 years, really go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay! We hosted a brunch their the day after our wedding for our guests. Dinora and team made a delicious brunch for about 30 people and our guests couldn't stop talking about how good the food was! We also had them do 2 other dinners and a breakfast when we stayed after the wedding. I highly recommend doing this. It's incredibly affordable, delicious, and more authentic than some places in town. From start to finish our experience with Connie and Barry and our time at Villas Rana Verde was magical! The icing on the cake for us though was a beautiful, hand painted Mexican wedding ornament given to us by Connie before we left to say congratulations on our nuptials! We collect ornaments from all of our travels, but this is by far the most special-- what a kindness! Being able to show our nearest and dearest this special little corner of the world meant so much to us. Do yourselves a favor, visit Sayulita and stay here with Connie and Barry. You won't be disappointed!!

Better than we could have imagined!
Our stay at Casa Rana Verde was even better than we could have imagined. Barry and Connie's property is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed having our own rooms and also the amazing kitchen, dining space and pool. Barry and Connie have thought of everything one would need for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Lucia made the best meals! Casa Rana Verde is very quiet and off the beaten path yet close to everything in town. The beach is a short walk from the house and we loved listening to the ocean waves while we slept. This place is a complete gem!

Casa Rana Verde is a gem!
I needed a beach get-away to take the edge of the winter chill and I was thrilled when a friend invited me to join her at Casa Rana Verde Villas. We each had our own beautifully decorated bedrooms that are really like casitas with a comfortable bed and private bathroom. The round design of the rooms are so unique and enjoyable to be in. Each one was a delight to come back to after a full day in town, affording a tranquil space to relax in or sit on the terrace and take in the ocean view. I loved the colorful , whimsical touches of Mexican folk art that are displayed in each lodging and shared kitchen. All the areas are super clean and comfortable and the lush grounds are filled with beautiful tropical plants. We found the owners, Connie and Barry so easy to contact and attentive when we needed anything, and they were helpful in arranging transportation to the airport as well as having helpful information on restaurants and activities in town. If you want quality and comfort on your vacation, Villas Rana Verde is a great place to stay in Sayulita.

Wish I could come back next weekend!
The property is stunning, the staff is wonderful, and Barry was extremely helpful and accommodating. It’s located a 15 min walk from the center of town and is only 5 min walking to a sparsely populated part of the beach. Its close enough to pop into the bars and far enough away to hear only the birds and the waves at night. We opted not to get a golf cart and, instead, walk off the delicious food and margaritas that the property staff whipped up for us. 5 stars all around.

The best vacation of my life
Sayulita has completely charmed me. The town has a lovely rhythm and is full of hospitable and friendly people. This house is the perfect base for your adventures. It has every luxury you need while being immediately accessible to both the town and the beach. This will not be my last stay here.

Off Season Paradise at Casa Makayla
We enjoyed our off season vacation in Sayulita this summer even with the temperatures hotter and more humid than we are used to from Santa Cruz, CA. The Casa Rana Verde Villa offered a lot of ways to cool down. The pools were very clean -- thx to Chuy -- every AM out there making sure! The kitchens are designed with great ventilation and every room has a fan or AC or both. The staff was super friendly with plenty of good advice of where to go buy beer and groceries once you arrive the first day. Every night was an amazing sunset view from CRV/CM. The beach is really close by with tropical views of Sayulita from the south. We will visit again for sure!

CASAS WITH A VIEW! Off season Sayulita
Don't miss Casa Rana Verde. Three lovely houses on the property. We stayed in the main house and enjoyed our own pool (each house has its own pool), easy (3 min) walk to the beach, bedrooms with A/C blowing cool air -- a must in the heat of summer Sayulita. We spent a lot of outside time hanging out under the big palapa next to the kitchen with its amazing views of the ocean and stunning sunsets. The property staff is very kind (gracias Chuy!!) and Barry (owner) very helpful, accommodating and easy to work with via phone. Nice to be away from the town a bit but also within easy walking distance.
We rented a golf cart from Roy's (great service) but most of the time we walked to town (10-15 min down the road or on the beach). My 15 year old daughter was interested in surfing so we used Wildmex (owner is the best and just overall great staff) for surfing lessons. They will transport to nearby Punta MInta which you should definitely check out if you are a surfer -- quick walk from Casa Rana Verde (same side of town).

Awesome Place to Celebrate turning 30!
16 of us rented Casa Rana Verde to celebrate a 30th birthday. The property is absolutely gorgeous and had plenty of space for all of us. Barry, the owner, was very helpful leading up to our arrival and while we were there. We hired his chef's one night for a birthday dinner and they were amazing, the food was delicious. The property is close to downtown and the beach, you can either walk or grab a few golf carts to get around. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit Sayulita again.

Perfect property in Sayulita!
We got married in Sayulita and hosted our welcome party at Casa Rana Verde. It was perfect. We also rented out the full property for the week for our family members. It is such a unique property with a stunning view of the ocean and within walking distance/golf cart ride to the town center. The chef onsite provide an incredible meal for our welcome party that showcased an authentic tasty Mexican cuisine. Highly recommend booking this property.
