The reminiscing doesn't stop
2490 characters are probably not enough to write out in this review how grateful we are for Villas Rana Verde and the whole incredible crew!

My husband and I decided to get married in Sayulita and this was the place we were lucky enough to host our families and merge them into one.

Everything about this place is exactly what you wish it to be. From tiny aesthetic details that feed your Mexican craving to the amazing hands of Lucia and her crew, so much of it all in its individual parts and as a collective whole were reasons to feel grateful and overjoyed for our time spent here.

We spent 6 amazing days with our closest family and friends and were lucky enough to eat Lucias' breakfasts each morning, and not only that but those amazing women prepared the whole dinner and desserts the night of our wedding... the reminiscing doesn't stop.

We spent a 1/3 of the price of what the average American wedding costs, which consisted of 6 days, 5 nights, breakfast every morning, clean rooms, clean relaxing pools, ocean view, wedding, late night hanging out under the main Palapa, beautiful bird calling, iguanas, colors, beautiful smells, amazing family working with Barry and Connie, hot showers, prompt communication... I can keep going.

Barry, Connie, and the rest of the amazing crew, thank you once again for everything. We are beyond blessed and grateful for our stay at Villas Rana Verde.

Beautiful Week!
We were part of a May 2017 wedding party that rented the entire complex and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. Each family group having their own sleeping area, kitchen, and pool was perfect and yet everyone was able to gather as a large group in the central palapa. Staff was very friendly and the owners helpful. We want to go back!

Simply the Best!
My husband and I got married in Sayulita in May 2017. We loved the idea of being able to rent a property that our whole immediate family could stay at. After countless hours of research, reading so many reviews and soliciting recommendations we settled on Villa Rana Verde! THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! We LOVED that each family could take over the different houses and that there was a degree of seperation and privacy yet we were all together! The main Palapa was the best gathering spot and had killer views of the bay. We have a 1 year old so when it was his bedtime, we would not worry about being to loud as we could set the monitor to keep in an eye but not worry about waking him up. Being on the Northside was perfect. The property is right across the street from the beach and a 5 minute golf cart drive from the plaza. 15 minute walk to the plaza. Everything you need for a great vacation was there- comfy beds, A/C, kitchen necessities, rafts, towells, etc.

Barry was an incredible host and was so helpful with answering all my questions about Sayulita, the property, necessaties and assisted in planning our Welcome Party/Rehersal for the wedding. He was indespenisble to our incredible experience. He was easily accessilbe during our stay which was added comfort.

The family that Barry employees is incredible! Lucia and her family made us 3 meals during our stay - one being all the food for the Mexican Welcome Party for 70 guests. (chips, salsa, guac, pork tomales, rice, beans, chicken quesadiallas, carne asada tostadas, shrimp ceviches, and more). Everything she made was incredible! I could eat her food every day. The family was also so on top of cleaning our houses and common areas providing an overall great experience! We also utlized them for babysitting the night of our wedding. Knowing that Barry and the family has such a great relationship made me feel that much more comfortable with allowing someone I don't know very well babysit our child and take him home from our wedding.

Lastly, the Palapa for our welcome party was the perfect venue! We were able to provide a comfortable space with great views, amazing food and music for the best party! We had 70 guests for a reception style party and it was perfect!

The best Rehearsal Dinner
In April of 2017 my wife and I were married. We chose Sayulita, Mexico because of its fun, beauty, comfortability, and affordability amongst many other reasons. We loved that all of our guests could rent large villas where we could all gather, and Villas Rana Verde was the best for one simple reason, Barry Dumont. While many of the other properties we saw were stunning there was not one we heard of where anyone met their properties owner or manager. Many of our guests couldn't even reach theirs when they were locked out. Barry is the opposite. And his property was absolutely perfect for our wedding's rehearsal dinner.

The palapa area easily hosted all 85 of our guests and could have fit 100-115 in my opinion. More could certainly spill out into the pool area below, but I think most people stayed up top for ours because of the gorgeous views. The entire party tried to clamor up to the edge when the sun was setting to catch views and pictures. It was amazing to host a party where people were ooing and ahing. I don't know what was more beautiful, the sunset or Villas Rana Verde. Every detail was perfect. It was decorated beautifully with the white papel picado, hanging iron star light fixtures, and handmade linen napkins. We had plenty of room to move tables out and dance to the reggae band we hired. Everyone just had a blast.

The food was provided by one of Barry's trusted team, Lucia. She cooked her famous chicken mole that Barry had hyped up for months, and he was right, it was the best I'd ever had. Served with rice, beans, grilled vegetables, and homemade tortillas. It was a huge hit. The bar operated perfectly and the bartenders were terrific. Also Barry's people. And when our guests had had enough food, drinks, and dancing they all grabbed cars from Barry's guy, Angel, of Ola Azul, who we used all week long including to and from the airport for all of our guests. His trusted people have been working with him for over a decade. They felt like friends by the time we left. I think Lucia cried a little when we said goodbye!

Barry was there for us half a year before our party when we had booked his property. He helped us plan our party from the US. He worked with our wedding planner to make sure it all went off without a hitch. He kept our costs low. He did everything you'd want. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Barry was there for us. That was the invaluable part. His property was such a terrific place to stay, and the rehearsal dinner party we had could not have gone any better. The only problem is that it only happens once.

We rented all three houses on the property in November. Our son was being married right across the street. Barry was very helpful in recommending golf carts to rent (which is a must and a blast), places to shop, and restaurants. They live next door so if there is a problem, they are right there.

They have a full time gardner (Chuy) and property is beautiful. It is a tropical garden. There are pools with each house. (also plenty of floats, sand buckets and chairs for the beach) They also have a full time housekeeper that will prepare home cooked meals. We had two babies and one 3 year old, so we decided it was easier to eat at the house. The food was wonderful and all freshly made. We had guacamole, salsa,& homemade tortillas with every meal. There is a menu to pick from..we loved the chili rellenos, green chicken enchiladas, and shrimp.There was always plenty left over for the next day.

The homes are all decorated with fun art, colorful blankets, and local artist pieces. Very inviting for an afternoon nap! The view from the main house is spectacular. They also had two highchairs and portacribs for the babies. We had a great time!

A week in paradise
We stayed at Villas Rana Verde in October 2016 for our wedding. We rented the entire property (Casa Rana Verde, Casa Mikayla, and Casa Pajaro ) for our family and wedding party, and had our wedding and reception on the property.

From day one, it was all positive interactions. Barry was quick with his responses, available to answer my questions, and flexible when we had to change our dates.

Our arrival was breathtaking. Tucked away in the jungle, this property is just far enough away from town to feel the quiet and serenity of a relaxing vacation, but also, a fairly easy walk. We had our parents with us, so we rented a couple of golf carts, which made the trip to town less than 5 minutes. There were hookups to plug them in right in the driveway. Easy Peasy.

Now, the accommodations : Every bedroom had air conditioning and fans that worked perfectly. The rooms were much bigger than I imagined. Our room had a king size bed, a daybed, and a couch! (Plus a huge bathroom!!)

This property has 6 day/week staff working to keep things clean and comfortable. Lucia and Rosie are the maids. They are lovely, lovely, lovely. They also cooked us 3 delicious meals!! It was a very good price and leftovers that lasted for days. And Chuy, the gardener, has his work cut out for him, with all the beautiful property surrounding the Casas, and three pools to keep clean, but he gets it done. It looked perfect everyday.

I would stay here again, and obviously, I highly recommend you do too. Not only was it a beautiful place to host a wedding, but a magical place to spend a week with family and friends.

Our best family reunion vacation ever!!!
We visited Villas Rana Verde in July, and stayed 10 days. It was my first time in Sayulita, and even though we are back in Florida, my mind and heart is still in Mexico. This location was so perfect for being within walking distance to town. My 7 year old daughter and I walked the beach every morning, finding treasure of drift wood and sea glass. We also would walk into town either via beach or through the surrounding neighborhoods. Felt incredibly safe at all times with my young children. We also rented a golf cart for the entire time, and had such a blast cruising around town and exploring. We went for Paletas EVERY NIGHT in town!

We stayed at Rana Verde with friends from Oregon, and NY. It was a reunion, and we had not been together in 15 years. This was the perfect layout for everyone to have their own space, but yet gather together for meals, sunset and pool time. We walked to the beach at night for sunsets swims, or sit in a patio chair, with margarita to watch the breathtaking sunsets. I am a photographer, and my camera was definitely put to great use while we were there. The gardens were gorgeous, filled with life!!! We sat in the morning with our coffee, and would watch the hummingbirds, and butterflies as they were so active! The songs of some of those birds, and the variety of them was something I have never experienced before.

You have everything you could need or want at the property. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the luxuries of home, and more! The colors and decor was incredible, and I loved not only being in Mexico, but surrounded by the colors, art and culture of the decor!!! My family of four slept in the same room, and kids had their own bed. We all slept like babies to the sound the the ocean waves. Our room felt amazing in the AC, as it was quite hot outside in July...although we are used to the heat in Florida. The property was very private, and had so many places to relax. We even brought a hammock from home, to hang in the palm trees by the pool. There are many pool toys for the kids, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and quality boogie boards too. I believe these items were from Costco, and were the same ones we enjoy at home, so we were super happy to have these "luxuries" at the beach.

We used the driver that is offered by Barry, (Angel) and felt stress free getting to and from the airport. He met us with our name on a sign at the airport, then drove us to a large supermarket to pick up our groceries. Plenty of space in his suburban for luggage, and 7 of us returning back to the airport.

It was so hard to leave Sayulita, and we will definitely be returning to create more memories. I Feel incredibly blessed to have found Rana Verde, as this trip was by far, the best we have ever had.

Amazing Place!
Wow! We just returned from Villas Rana Verde and had an AMAZING time. Our group of friends were there to celebrate my 40th birthday and everyone of us was able to have a memorable experience at this unique property. We rented the entire Villa and had four rooms with families, two rooms with couples and one single there was more than enough space in the rooms and villa to accommodate all of us.

Things to know:
-The pictures do not do this place justice the setting is unreal and every room, house, and bathroom is unique in its design and very well maintained.
-You could find a quiet place at any time on the property or easily convene as a large group in the Rana Verde Pool or Rana Verde sitting/dinning area.
-The pools are awesome with the ones at Villa Rana Verde being my personal favorite it had some shade all day and unbelievable views.
- The beach access out front of the villa less than a 2 min walk in either direction was great the entire group went out for nightly sunset swims. Not mentioned in the Villa description but good to note at least while we were there Barry had a solid collection of beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, and beach coolers available for use that made our daily trips to the multiple beaches around town way more enjoyable.
- Barry and his staff were incredibly kind, readily available and full of information. Lucia's welcome dinner on the first night qualified as Epic the chicken mole, guacamole and chile relleno were out of this world!
- The eating area at Casa Pajaro was a favorite for morning coffee as the sheer number of birds out about in the neighboring jungle made for fabulous morning entertainment.
-The property is very private we did not hear any noise from the neighbors or town nor did we feel we were disturbing people with our noise.
-AC was important to many in our group and worked well in all the bedrooms.
- The town of Sayulita was awesome great food, good people and plenty to do! I recommend renting a golf cart you do not need one to get to town but it makes getting around a lot of fun.

All and all could not have been a better place for our group we will be back again!

Most beautiful estate in Sayulita!
We spent a week at Casa Rana Verde, Casa Mikayla and Casa Pajaro in late June 2016, and we are still talking about what a wonderful place it is. We were there for my daughter's wedding and we rented the whole villa for a group of family and friends- 14 adults and three kids.

The place is fabulous, even more beautiful than the pictures, which are amazing. We all felt like we were stepping into the pages of Sunset magazine. Everything was clean and well maintained. The grounds were spectacular. The pools were sparkling clean.

We had Lucia prepare several meals for our group and the feasts she prepared for us were epic. We hosted a Sunday brunch after the wedding on the communal patio for approximately 60 people , which Lucia prepared all the food for. It was one of the highlights of the week! You couldn't ask for a more congenial staff. They were friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive.

The owner lives next door and he was available to help whenever needed. The house is located on the northern side of town and it is quiet and peaceful. It is a short walk to town, but we rented a golf cart which was so much fun. If we ever go back to Sayulita, we will definitely want to stay here again.

A slice of heaven for yoga retreats
I have rented Villas Rana Verde twice now for my yoga retreats. This casa(s) are just perfect. It's absolutely stunning, meticulously clean, and offers an expansive view of the ocean. It's situated just north of town, which is nice because it's quiet (except for the beautiful sounds of the ocean waves), but is also a short walk into the center where all the action is. I have also rented Casa Mikayla with my family and it was also perfect.

Barry and Connie are awesome hosts. And Lucia, the casa cook, is phenomenal! She will cook you dinner for a nominal fee, do all the clean up, and makes enough for left overs. Highly recommended! I'll be back for sure with more yoga groups to come, as well as a nice family vacation.
