Listing Description
Welcome to Casa Sombra, one of the last traditional family compounds left in Sayulita. Let your kids roam free inside the compound walls, on the grassy front lawn, safe from the hustle and bustle of the town. Enjoy total privacy at this gorgeous traditional Mexican villa-style private residence that’s perfectly situated on the tranquil north side of town, just a block from the best uncrowded beach in Sayulita, and just a short 7 minute walk to the town Plaza.

The Space
From the outdoor dining area enjoy the view of this lush botanical sanctuary. Sip your morning coffee to the sounds of visiting birds as they bathe in the fountain or hop around from tree top to tree top. The shaded front porch is a great place to watch your kids as they swim in the pool or take an afternoon siesta in the outdoor swing bed.

The two part pool features shallow wading section, perfect for little  swimmers in training or cocktail sipping adults who want to stay cool without getting their hair wet. The deeper end provides a great place to play pool games or float around on inflatables while soaking up the tropical sunshine.

The main house features two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, living room area and fully equipped kitchen. The master suite features a king size bed, ensuite bathroom and air-conditioner. The second bedroom features two full size beds, bathroom adjacent and air-conditioner. It’s perfect for children or a couple of adults who don’t mind sharing a room.

Separate from the house, on top of the bodega, is a private Casita featuring a king size bed, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioner, private patio, kitchenette and refrigerator. Above the Casita, enjoy the cool breeze from a peek-a-boo ocean view palapa, perfect for practicing yoga or having a massage.

We hope you and your family enjoy Casa Sombra as much as our family has over the years! It’s a truly magical place!

Lovely area
Amazing location and the place is spotless (nice housekeeper). The pool and outside area is well maintained and a wonderful place to relax. We had some plumbing issues, but the host was quick to respond and help out. Only 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas are available so make sure to bring anything else you need for the beach. Also, the kitchen did not have any of the basics (salt, pepper, oil, etc.) so make sure to bring/buy your own. Overall we had a lovely stay and enjoyed the place.

Great location, beautiful property!
We spent a week at Casa Sombra with family and it was wonderful! We rented both the Casita and the main Casa, and they were both delightful. Both spaces were beautifully built, clean and well-appointed.The location was perfect for us..walk to town, a minute to the beach, great restaurants nearby, but very private. The beds were great and the houses had everything we needed.
I would advise checking in with the owner/property manager a few days before you arrive to be sure that everything is turned on and ready to go for your visit. We spent a few days without hot water and there were a few other fits and starts, but other than that everything was amazing and we all had a wonderful time.

Nice, clean home with great pool and yard
The house is very nice, better than what the photos show, clean, comfortable, private, the kitchen is well equipped, has everything you need to cook and is a few steps from the beach. We take pet with us without problem, you just have to warn and remember that the accommodation is pet friendly. It is an excellent option to rest.

La casa es muy bonita, mejor que lo que muestran las fotografías, limpia, cómoda, privada, la cocina esta bien equipada, cuenta con todo lo necesario para cocinar y esta a unos pasos de la playa. Llevamos mascota con nosotros sin problema, solo hay q avisar y recordar que el alojamiento es pet friendly. Es una excelente opción para descansar.

Such a great spot!
The location is really pretty perfect; a short FLAT walk or golf cart ride to town but away from the noise, and a quick hop to the beach. The layout of the house and really very beautiful gardens are ideal for kids (old enough to roam and NOT fall off the roof decks) and their parents! House was kept very tidy and we really appreciated the beautiful pillows and swinging outdoor bed that made it feel like a getaway. The kitchen was pretty well stocked for simple cooking and you're very close to a great butcher and convenience stores for the basics. House staff was excellent - any need we had was addressed super promptly and to our satisfaction. Having laundry machines made life with kids much more comfortable!

My husband and I are originally from California, but have put down roots in Sayulita after each vacation to “El Pueblo Mágico” became longer and longer. We now split our time between our beloved Sayulita, Texas and new, exciting travel destinations. We are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community, raise our daughter here, and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
