I signed 6 months ago, my contract wasn’t honored
I recommend looking for a vacation rental that IS NOT owned by Apex Management Group (AMG).

I was in love with this beautiful property when I saw it on Sayulita Life back in June 2022. I was planning for a January 2023 trip and was delighted to secure the poolside rental contractually with Leyla at Morris Rentals, the owner of Casa Sonrisa at the time.

Unfortunately, I’ll never get to experience this beautiful casita in my home country.

Apparently there was a change in ownership between now (December 2022) and when I signed the contract 6 months ago. Neither Leyla nor Morris Rentals notified me. My reservation didn’t transfer. I was notified by the new owners, Apex Management Group (AMG) 1 month before my trip of the mistake, which was only caught in advance due to an audit. I can’t imagine what it would’ve been like for me to arrive with my guests only to find out the new owners had overbooked and we’d have nowhere to stay.

When asked to honor the original contract signed 6 months ago, AMG refused to offer any accommodations. I asked them to pay the price difference that will likely incur from finding an alternate location so late, but they declined. Mind you, I’m going for a wedding, and that is not the only wedding that is happening that weekend. All the great and affordable casitas in Sayulita are basically booked! Now I am stuck looking for a new vacation rental that meets our needs and is within our budget, ONE MONTH before we go to Sayulita.

I am so disappointed with the lack of integrity and accountability. I am solely write this review to warn others of this unprofessional and unethical experience. It’s hard giving benefit of the doubt when people don’t try to meet you halfway.

I visited Sayulita with my friends for a bachelorette party. Let me tell you that Leyla and Lulu were the best hostesses and chefs, so hospitable and wonderful. They truly made our stay a thing to remember. Not to mention the gorgeous property of Casa Sonrisa, which was an oasis in the beautiful little surf town. I would highly recommend staying here!

Casa Sonrisa is great!
Place was great! The pool was the best cure for the morning after a night in Sayulita!! Close to everything, recommend getting a golf cart to really get around Sayulita.

beautiful home & excellent location
We loved our stay at Casa Sonrisa! We didn’t know anything about Sayulita when we booked our stay and could not have found a better location. It’s a lovely short walk to town or the beach but far enough away for a quiet stay. The north side of town is quieter and the beach is beautiful. As noted in other reviews, there is a hill! The hill does not kill you but it can be challenging. If you have any mobility issues, rent the golf cart from Leyla and you’ll be fine. The bedrooms were perfect for us (2 couples). The kitchen well equipped with bottled water, spices, dishes etc. Great wifi too. We loved the easy indoor/outdoor living between the pool area and the house. The pool area is sunny for most of the afternoon but easy to find shade if you want. The upstairs renters weren’t interested in the pool area so it was like we had our own private pool. Sayulita is a magical little town. I’ve never felt so safe. So many great restaurants and little shops to browse. A new French Patisserie just opened on a block down the hill - the best croissants! Leyla was quick to address a minor hiccup we had and any questions we had about Sayulita. I would highly recommend Casa Sonrisa!

Perfect in every way
I'm pretty picky about accommodation so I usually have at least some constructive criticism, but Casa Sonrisa really was just perfect. The space is beautiful and the view is paradise. It is super well equipped. Beyond the kitchen which has everything, there's even towels, chairs, and an umbrella to take to the beach. It is beautifully designed and set up. We were in Sayulita for two weeks and there were a couple days we didn't even leave the house. Just hung out in the palapa, on the balcony, by the pool. There's a cleaner, Lulu, who comes by every other day to clean including washing dishes, washing towels/sheets, etc. Leyla the host is communicative, kind, and accommodating. We were there during pandemic madness so we chatted a bunch about the situation, travel plans, etc and it was always a pleasure. If there was anything we needed, she was happy to accommodate. Like everyone else mentions, there's quite a hill + stairs to get up, but you don't get a view like that without working for it! Lastly, this is not at all about Casa Sonrisa, but it is a heads up about Sayulita. On the weekends, locals sometimes have weddings, quinceaneras, etc and those are crazy loud and go on until the early morning hours. There were only two in the two weeks we were there but when those were happening, no matter where you are in Sayulita, they are incomprehensibly loud.
