Villa Buena Vista Estate in Sayulita is a luxury 4 bedroom home on the exclusive North Side of town. The villa is high enough to provide panoramic views of the ocean and surf break yet still be only a 5 minute walk to a lovely quiet beach and a 10-15 minute stroll to the village. A blend of world-class contemporary design and hacienda style openness, the complex consists of a large villa with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths + 2 half baths, and a 1 bedroom casita on two levels with 1 full bath. An extensive ethnic and modern art collection is elegantly displayed throughout the house. The interior design is pure, understated elegance, accented by parota wood cabinets and furnishings. With amazing views from every room, the name Villa Buena Vista says it all.


Our lush, tropical courtyard is a private retreat that perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the villa. Connected to the home by two generous sliding doors, it is the definition of indoor/outdoor living, affording views all the way through the house to the ocean. Al fresco dining has never been so easy, as the hi-end, built-in barbeque is just steps from the kitchen, accompanied by an elegant dining set complete with umbrella. Enjoy your outdoor meals in quiet seclusion, or while away the days sunbathing or reading. There is also a handy entrance to the upper level of the casita for those families and groups who are occupying the entire complex.


You enter the home from the courtyard into our unique, air-conditioned, gourmet kitchen and family room. This area can be left open to enjoy the ocean breezes or completely closed off and air-conditioned. The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher and naturally finished cement counters. Enjoy purified ice and water as we have a state of the art water purification system throughout the complex. We also provide all the necessary small appliances, utensils, spices and condiments for those special, home-cooked meals you will enjoy in this lovely setting. The family room has a cozy wraparound sofa with a flat screen, satellite t.v. and blue ray disc player; an extensive collections of movies--including many classics--and an elegant art wall. Down three steps is the spacious dining room with still more spectacular views. The large custom table seats up to 10 and overlooks a ornamental fireplace, done in the Moroccan style. Twin 3-step staircases lead down to our fabulous palapa, with those ever-inspiring views and a u-shaped sofa that also seats up to 10.


From either side of the palapa, spiral staircases lead down to the pool and bedroom level of the villa. Villa Buena Vista has two air-conditioned, spacious master suites with king size beds, small private terraces, ocean views and direct pool access. Beds have "pillow top" mattresses and top quality linens. The suites are mirror opposites except for art and have the feeling of a five star resort. Bathrooms are spacious and elegant with tumbled marble counters and glass-enclosed showers. The third bedroom, a converted den, on this level is entered through a generous gallery hall. This ocean view, air-conditioned bedroom also has a half-bath and closet as well as a wet bar with a small fridge. The large couch is a trundle bed which opens to form two twins and also serves as a comfortable lounging area during the day. Have your morning coffee by the pool while checking out the surf break, or enjoy cool drinks after an afternoon swim in the spectacular pool.


Spanning the width of the villa the infinity pool is six feet deep, with a lounging shelf and shallow play area next to the jacuzzi. The digital saltwater filtration system keeps water sparkling and pure, without that chlorine odor and irritation. The pool sits above a small cliff, giving it a true infinity effect. Right off the bedrooms there is an additional shaded pool deck that has a small dining table with chairs and matching chaise lounges. Our favorite thing is to end each night with a hot*, delicious soak before slipping into the pool for a relaxing swim. Afterwards, we settle into poolside chaises and doze off while stargazing and listening to the rhythm of the surf.


The casita may be entered through the Villa's courtyard. The upper level consists of a full kitchen/living room area and private terrace with cafe table and chairs and spectacular ocean views. The wraparound sofa is twin-bed width, with memory foam cushions. (The casita sofas can be made up as beds for 2 additional guests). The room also features a flat screen, satellite t.v. with dvd player, and is filled with elegant art and artifacts, very much like the villa. A discreet turret stair leads down to the air conditioned, en-suite bedroom. The king mattress is the same "pillow" type found in the villa; upon opening your eyes in the morning the first thing you see is the ocean and Sayulita Point. There is a spacious bathroom, along with a second sunny terrace. The casita is a perfect romantic getaway for two but will work just as well for a small family. Please note the casita is not rented separately from the main villa.


You will be met at a the house by your host, who will  give you a personal tour and demonstration of the home’s features. Maid service 3 times per week (every other day); HI-SPEED WI-FI; AC in all bedrooms PLUS kitchen/family room; fans; BABY EQUIPMENT includes: Pak ‘n Play crib, highchair and baby bath on request; kiddie security gates on stairs; 3 x king size beds w/pillow top mattresses; hi-quality linens and towels.

*Jacuzzi is only heated in the evenings 5pm to 12am.
*The villa is approximately 4 blocks above the beach, located on a steep hill. 
*No pool floaties. Due to the infinity feature and extremely high droppoff, we do not allow floats in the pool, for your safety.

Need less space? Rent the main casa for a total of 3 bedroooms - Villa Buena Vista Please note the casita is only rented along with the main house, so if you only need the 3 bedrooms, you will still have the entire property to yourselves, your privacy is asssured.

Uniquely Thoughtful Design
Sayulita is a naturally beautiful place, but with tourism-growth many buildings seem focused on maximizing square footage rather than creating beautiful spaces that relate to the environment. This home is different, it beautifully integrates the tropical surrounds and the spectacular views. The way the house tiers down the hillside feels solid and organic.The open palapa dining room and family / sunset room perfectly capture the stunning views, birds, butterflies and other magical creatures. The pool makes it difficult to leave the house and explore the town - it is dreamy. In addition to the superb design, all the comforts of the kitchen, air conditioning, bug screens, filtered water, fabulous beds, etc. make relaxing easy as can be. Tamara and team also handled all questions, transportation issues etc., rapidly and well. This is a great house for groups of many kinds.

Best rental in Sayulita!
Cleanest, UV filtered water! BEST AC! NO bugs AT ALL!

The pictures of this estate hardly do it justice- seems like they didn't photograph it with those new space enhancing wide lenses everyone uses for real estate. To be fair, the layout is difficult to capture as the estate is on a cliff over looking the ocean, and you would need a drone to photograph each 4 levels of the main house properly. That said, the owner's lack of savvy is our gain because it seems the price should be double for what you get. This is clearly a dream home that was built as a labor of love by a gifted designer and architect.

When I first saw the pictures, I thought some of the upholstery fabrics didn't look too fancy, but in fact they, like every detail of the house are really well thought out. All of the largest seating areas, vast and comfortable, have removable pads and waterproof fabric perfect for flopping down with a wet bathing suit or for kids and teens to increase the beds for what seems to be up to 20.

Each level of the house, kitchen, dining room, living room, pool area these sweeping, vast open spaces, with the main open air ceiling area seeming like 60ft tall. I laid around just staring at the gorgeous thatched roof and lighting fixtures framing the ocean in awe that it was even real and I was there. The lighting design in impeccable, warm and luminous.

The air conditioning is perfect! This is huge for me as every other resort I've stayed at in Sayulita didn't really have working ac.

The water is all perfectly clean and DRINKABLE! NONE of our 10 person party had one bad moment of being sick at all! EVERY other time I've gone to Mexico and Sayulita we get sick. Not this time!

I wish I could keep this magic place for myself and family!

10/10 Recommend
Photos barely do Villa Buena Vista justice with the incredible view of the trees and ocean. The on-site manager of the house, Theo, is incredibly helpful and responsive, arranging reliable transportation to/from the airport and recommends locals favorites. We also got great recommendations for private meals being cooked inside the house, as well as a great recommendation for restaurants in town. Overall a phenomenal experience which we all loved!

Amazing view!
We celebrated my birthday with 3 other couples here and we’re planning to make this an annual trip. The views, infinity pool, and the entire layout of this villa was awesome! Most of us never wanted to leave the place. The villa had 3 levels, each with a different vibe. It was a 20 minute walk into town, the beach was maybe 5 minutes away. The only drawback for some might be that it’s on a steep hill. I actually liked the little exercise.

I’d definitely would recommend this villa!

The photos do not do this place justice! The view is breathtaking. All of the decor and the details throughout the home are so tasteful and compliment the feel of the home perfectly. I used to live in Sayulita, so I have high expectations when I vacation there because I know the area well, and Villa Buena Vista, the owner and the staff by far exceeded all of them. We had such a great time that this is now the only vacation home we will use for future family trips. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. Can't wait to go back!

Fabulous house.
We had a wonderful time at Villa Burna Vista. The ambience created by beautiful architecture, artwork, landscaping and attention to detail, combined with a stunning view, made it possible to slip into relaxation mode quickly and completely.
A great spot for a lovely holiday.
