El Templito in Sayulita is located just above the beach at the quiet north end of Sayulita Bay, set in a lush tropical garden under a giant Fig Tree. There are great ocean views, a swimming pool, and balmy sea breezes.

El Templito can be rented with the newly constructed Casita for three bedrooms or with Mariluna a beautiful three bedroom villa just above Tempito for a total of six bedrooms which can accommodate 12 people, or any combination thereof. The new Casita is a totatly independent apartment with kitchen, full bath, and patio with great view to the beach and ocean. For more information regarding the entire 3 villa estate, please view our Templo Del Mar page.

Stately Cantera stone stairs lead down from the vine covered parking area above, to a lovely little courtyard filled with tropical plants. Beautiful hand carved Cantara stone columns support the tile roof covering the open-air combination kitchen/living/ dining room. The surrounding arches frame the lovely views looking out on the hills of Sayulita, the tropical gardens, the pool, and ocean and beach views. There are Mexican tiled counters and modern appliances in the well- equipped kitchen.

Just off the patio is a small wading pool with a waterfall that leads down to the larger, deeper pool.

A cobblestone stairway to the beach leads down through lush gardens of heliconia, palms, and gingers to your own private stairway to the north end of Sayulita beach (Playa Norte) and trails to the pristine beaches to the north.

El Templito has two air conditioned King size bedrooms that are in separate, adjacent buildings. Each suite has gracious Mexican tiled bathrooms with showers, comfortable king size beds , handmade local hardwood furniture and regional artwork.

Amenities include bath and beach towels, quality bed linens, purified, reverse osmosis filtered drinking water, and maid service. We provide a cell phone for local calls, there is WiFi internet access , IPod compatable speakers, and TV/ DVD player.

El Templito is a perfect getaway for Honeymooners, two couples, or a couple with an older child or friend, (Do to the separate bedrooms and the open architecture, we do not recommend this house for small children.)  There is now  a newly constructed apartment that can also be rented making the property three bedrooms if needed.

El Templito is a peaceful, tranquil retreat where body and soul can relax and unwind. Enjoy the ocean views, listen to the waves and exotic jungle and sea birds, and be awed by the spectacular sunsets. El Templito is a the perfect place to be at peace and harmony with nature and enjoy beautiful Sayulita.

Wish I was at El Templito right now!
My sister and our husbands traveled from opposite coasts for a wonderful week at El Templito. We weren't quite prepared for how great the house was. It is so lovingly decorated with such beautiful things in every corner, and everything is right in it's spot to help make your stay feel like you're at home. We spent a lot of time just lounging around, cooking, napping, reading, jumping in and out of the pool and walking down to the beach. If you need to get online, the internet works well but I suggest ignoring the internet...

Iris, Daniel and Bertha were friendly and very helpful when we needed them. The house is clean, the grounds are well cared for and gorgeous.

We did have some mystery guest steal a few pieces of fruit from the kitchen, which is outdoors (maybe a bird?) but we didn't give it a thought. We just laughed it off and kept right on smiling. Now we're just trying to figure out when we can go back.

Lovely and Unique
We only had time for a two day stay here, but it was truly wonderful. We loved the open outdoor kitchen and dining area and the great covered sitting area overlooking the pool with views of the ocean. The manager was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Loved it!
We traveled with another couple to Sayulita and found the amount of space to be perfect for us. The open kitchen is so unique and made for fun dinners in. We also really enjoyed the meal Iris made. The outstanding highlight is the layout and pool area. We spent a lot of time lounging by the pool with frozen cocktails. If you are looking for something off the beaten path, this place is for you!

Great place for our honeymoon
We were absolutely impressed with El Templito! When we checked in the place was super clean and felt very welcoming. The open air kitchen and sitting area were great for experiencing the true culture of Mexico. It was so nice to be able to jump into the pool to cool off after spending some time in town. Iris the property manager was fantastic, friendly and shared great information about taking adventures in Sayulita. When one of the safes broke Iris had it fixed within a couple of hours. We appreciated the efficient cleaning service as well. My husband and I have a warm heart for Sayulita and this house just made our stay even better! Thank you to Andrea for sharing your beautiful home with us.

No better property in Sayulita!
We had been wanting to visit Sayulita since the January '09 issue of Sunset Magazine displayed it on the cover, I guess it took us a while to get there! I constantly browsed the website for the perfect place, with so many lovely homes to choose from, it was difficult to make a decision. I had always had my eye on El Templito ( little temple) and thought if my husband and I were to travel alone, this would be the place.

I was always searching for a larger home because our family was too large for this property. We lost our oldest son in a work related accident days before his 26th birthday, and we had just been so broken, and continue to be for that matter, we just needed to get away, get some perspective and try to let go of the pain and learn to celebrate the wonderful gift we had been given to have had him at all. This magical place was exactly what we needed to begin to heal. We decided to bring a piece of him, wherever we go to release him in the tides, as we did one evening on the back of a baby turtle, which if you knew our son, he would think that was hilarious.

This trip enabled us to leave our worries behind, and laugh again. As for the property itself, I could not have picked a better one if I tried, from the moment we arrived, we knew we were exactly where we should be. We were greeted by Iris, and Eduardo, and got to know Bertha throughout our stay, I cannot sing high enough praises for their lovely giving hearts, and their kindness. it was a piece of heaven and will remain one of our fondest memories, and we plan to make it an annual trip. Thank you Andrea for sharing your lovely home with us. It was everything we hoped it would be.

Great vacation home in Sayulita
We had a very nice time at Templito. The property was very accurately described and depicted in the pictures. The local house manager greeted us on arrival and was available and very friendly throughout the trip. She helped arranged quite a few things for us, and also cooked us an authentic meal for 15 guests one night!

The property had a nice sea breeze and good shade cover.

I have no complaints about the property. I will say in a minor way that pictures made it seem that the property was maybe 15 feet from the beach. It's more like 60 feet from the beach, but the benefit is that the property is higher up on the hill, and therefore gets a nice cool breeze. Overall it's a truly first rate property, with excellent and unobstructed beach access. Highly recommended!

My husband and I took my parents to Sayulita for their 40th anniversary and after continuously searching for places to stay we landed on Templito - and we are so happy we did!! It was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. The detached bedrooms provide just enough separation and privacy when needed but the 'open concept' of the house was what really made it special. We were able to relax, sit under the palapa, listen to music and drink cocktails without ever feeling like we were "trapped" inside. It sits on the far end of North Beach - which we really liked because it always felt safe and private. We also rented a golf cart because my parents are older and my dad has bad knees, but for the sake of going into town (even for my husband and I and were in our 20's) its pretty essential. We walked into town a couple times on the beach but after a few beers and margaritas we were wishing we had our golf cart :) We would absolutely rent Templito again in a heart beat! Andrea (homeowner) and Iris (manager) are easy to communicate with and very accommodating. You will love this property!

This place couldn't be better!
We stayed with the Haughts over the long weekend vacation. El Templito lived up to everything advertised - great accommodations, great beach access/view and a great location overall. We highly recommend this amazing Sayulita casita - we will be back!

Templito Hideaway
We rented Templito for 4 nights for a long weekend getaway with another couple. We found it exceptionally charming, clean, and very comfortable. Tucked away among beautiful palms and foliage, but with gorgeous beach and sunset views, we enjoyed ourselves immensely! It was the perfect blend of privacy and convenience. Town just 3 minutes down the road. Businesses were friendly and generous with their hospitality.

Some of our favorite restaurants included Miro Vino for the excellent ceviche and seafood in a dark and quieter location. Also, Chile Relleno for its bustling street setting with plenty of people watching and delicious meals.

We can't wait to go again, and we will seek out Templito as our first choice.

"Templito" Treasure
My husband and I spent a week at what we refer to the house as "Templito" Treasure! The home is beautiful, well furnished and extremely comfortable! We wanted for nothing! We were a few short steps to the beach which made it very easy to swim in the Pacific; or, we had the luxury of a private pool, which we swam in often.

We recommend staying at this home whenever vacationing in Sayulita. The groundskeeper and housekeeper were very cordial and helpful! They're care and dedication to the home and its guests are second to none! The Property Manager made herself available to us and answered any questions we had. We can't wait to go back!

My partner and I visited Sayulita 20 years ago, fell in love and bought one of the only beach houses on the north end of the bay then and there. It was a very quiet little fishing village then with a great surf break and friendly people. I now rent out my two houses Mariluna and Templito and enjoy sharing Sayulita and it's experience with others. Sayulita is a very special place that I was lucky enough to have found and had all these years to enjoy.
