Villa Melodia @ Hacienda Hilda is nestled comfortably within a private quiet hillside garden oasis underneath a giant Parota tree. The newly constructed dwelling holds two master bedrooms which were carefully designed and constructed with the blending of contemporary ecological design in concert with traditional Mexican craftsmanship and local materials to create a safe harbor of tranquility in the middle of the tropical jungle. It is situated only minutes away from the famous surf break and beaches of the bohemian village of Sayulita and the bustling good times of the plaza, restaurants, bars, and shopping mercados, which you can leave behind in the quiet jungle setting of the Villa Melodia.

Villa Melodia is a contemporary & ecological design that transports you back in time with tall traditional wood ceilings, white-washed walls, indoor/outdoor living, and a courtyard with a bubbling fountain and pool. The kitchen is fully equipped for meal preparations or optional chef-prepared dinners on-site. The covered yet, open-air living/dining/cooking space offers comfortable seating to allow time to enjoy the ambiance of the pool terrace and jungle environment while taking the first-morning coffee or indulging in long conversations and sipping specialty tequilas and mezcals. It is accommodated with ceiling fans, purified water, and internet access. The outdoor terrace courtyard accompanies a heated plunge pool "cenote" framed by a stone wall and is served by a splashing waterfall. 

The 2 master bedrooms of the Villa Melodia have large windows on 3 sides, each with secure private courtyard terrace access, a private bathroom, and is fully accommodated with ceiling fans, air conditioning, purified water, and internet access.  Each is situated to look out onto the spacious morning jungle views from the large windows and opening walls.  
A beautiful and tranquil experience awaits you at Villa Melodia @ Hacienda Hilda, where little by little, you relax into a slower pace of life and enjoy the beauty of the natural jungle sounds and views and fresh air that surround you.

A True Oasis!
We had an absolutely incredible stay at this Sayulita rental! (Hacienda Melodia)

This property is so well maintained and the owner pays special attention to details. The house was spotless, the amenities were top-notch and the outdoor living space was absolutely stunning!

There are two bedrooms on opposite sides with a kitchen and living area in between. Outside the bedrooms, kitchen, and living area are sliding doors to the outdoor patio which has a stunning deep plunge pool with an overhead illuminated running water feature, two hammocks, lounge chairs, and a grill.

The owner was so kind, thoughtful and accessible throughout our stay. She was always available to answer questions and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the property. (We feel as though we are now friends!)

We would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone looking for a wonderful experience in Sayulita. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are constantly trying to elevate our guest's experience and will continue to do so.

We truly care about our guests and as such, our villas are not only a place for our guests to reside while in Sayulita, but a community of little homes built around the lush jungle, to hopefully create long lasting friendships.

Stop searching and book this house NOW!
Villa Melodia has EVERYTHING you need for a perfect stay in Sayulita. From the first interaction with Hilda online, to the last interaction with the house manager Abel, on site, this experience was top notch! If you want details of our experience, please keep reading my lengthy review below!! There is so much to rave about this house and the owners! Booking the house was fast and easy. The price for Villa Melodia is extremely reasonable. The pictures are exactly what you see when you get there. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is amazing and we all slept very comfortably. The filtered water from the faucets was helpful as we did not have to buy plastic bottles of water-we just refilled our reusable bottles. The windows in the bedrooms make it very easy to sleep at night (we live in a suburban area and are not used to hearing cicadas at night-the rooms are very quiet). The house is off the main road up in the jungle and you will feel very safe here. Hilda and her husband have put a great deal of thought and effort into making this home, and you can see and feel all of their hard work. There is a full kitchen. My husband made us breakfasts, lunches ,and dinners with all of the amenities there and did not have a need for anything that was not provided. The beds are very comfortable. The showers have nice pressure and the hot water is abundant for multiple people to shower back to back. Beach towels are also provided for trips to the beach and to use at the onsite pool. Abel is the onsite house manager. Hilda introduced us via email and we communicated before our arrival on WhatsApp. He is incredibly helpful and resourceful, making sure we had everything we wanted and were all set before we even left the states. He arranged for our round trip airport transfer with a very safe and reputable company. He booked a golf cart rental for us (this is the preferred way to get from the house down to the heart of the town and to the beach). The cart was ready for us at the house when we arrived. We wanted to do a few excursions while were there for 5 days, but we were unsure of how safe and fairly priced all of the different companies we found online are. He vouched for one of the excursions I already selected for a half day boat and snorkeling tour, and helped in booking an ATV ride in the jungle. Everything was arranged perfectly so our days went very smoothly. He is very responsive when you message him and he is very informative and trustworthy. We were there celebrating our daughter's 15th birthday and wanted to make the day special for her. Abel helped me order a cake and he brought it to the house while we were out on an excursion and left it in the fridge for us to surprise her that evening when we got back from dinner. Lounging in the pool was a wonderful way to come back and relax from a day out on excursions exploring Sayulita, or from our lazy beach days. As you can see, I have nothing but the best praises and cannot offer a higher recommendation than I do for Villa Melodia. You will have a truly unique and catered experience when you are there, and you will leave Sayulita with a full heart. Thank you Hilda and Abel for EVERYTHING!!

Hi Chelsea, Eric and Emily,

I am so glad to hear that you, Emily and your husband Eric had a wonderful time at Villa Melodia/ Hacienda Hilda. As mentioned before, it is important for me and our staff to provide an experience versus just another plan to stay. We at Hacienda Hilda, are a team and we work very hard to find better ways to serve our guests. It would be again an honor to be able to host you at Villa Melodia or at our other villas.

Amazing experience!
Our stay at Hacienda Hilda in Sayulita delivered eveything that we had hoped for.  This gem is tucked within Sayulita's tropical forestry... away from crowds, yet minutes to restaurants and beaches via walking or golf cart (a golf cart rental seems to be the preferred method to get around town when in Sayulita). The articheture at Hacienda Hilda and the attention to detail are well thought out. The place is very clean and complete with necessities for a comfortable stay away from home.  Both, the owners and management team are very responsive and take great pride in providing their guests with a wonderful experience.  Upon arrival, we were graciously greeted followed by an open channel of communication throughout our stay.  We definitely plan to stay at Hacienda Hilda during our next visit to Sayulita. This one is on our 'highly recommend' list!

Beautiful secluded home, highly recommend! More beautiful than the pictures.
We had an amazing time at Hacienda Hilda! The hosts had great communication, and helped us with anything we needed while we were there. I highly recommend staying here. The house is very secluded in the rain forest and offers much privacy away from the busy town. We would love to return! Thank you Tania and Hilda for a lovely stay!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. As always, we strive to provide not only a comfortable space, but an experience and with that, we have taken note about the shower head needing adjustment. It is through you our guests, how we are able to improve our services and I thank you for your posting!

Hacienda Hilda is a destination where you can explore who you are, what we are all about and what it means to be part of a simplistic life style. It is my hope as the owner of Hacienda Hilda that you would provide us the opportunity to host you again in the near future.

With Gratitude,

Hilda Yount - Owner

Beautiful jungle getaway
Hacienda Hilda is a beautiful house with jungle views, lush vegetation, and all the amenities. The attention to detail and craftmanship of the hacienda is simply amazing. Be prepared to walk up some steps, but this is what gives you the amazing jungle views and ocean breeze! The set up of the property with one bedroom in the main house and a second bedroom in the smaller casita below makes it great for two couples but would also work well for families with adult children. The indoor/outdoor living space is perfect for lounging and the pool is great for a quick afternoon cool down. We've visited Sayulita many times and worried that we'd miss being closer to town, but we found that we loved having the peace and (relative) quiet of the jungle - there are birds, dogs, and roosters, but no traffic or gas trucks! We went to town for yoga, beach time, and dinner, but we were happy to return to our little sanctuary after the hustle and bustle of town. The property feels very safe and the road has street lights if you are returning after dark. There is a small market on the way to town that has a decent selection of groceries and drinks, and we stopped there most days. A golf cart makes getting to and from town more convenient, but it is walkable as well. Tim and Hilda have created a truly unique property in Sayulita, and we can't wait to return.

Gorgeous and Comfortable Retreat - What a Gem!
Hacienda Hilda is just a lovely place to land after a busy day of travel and sightseeing. Bright and open, uncluttered and beautiful - stunning architecture and furnishings, with a pool to boot! Our contact Tania greeted us with a basket of local goodies and showed us around the place. We had a couple of wifi glitches which she immediately responded to, and she is a wealth of information when it comes to recommending restaurants and beaches. She is simply charming and super helpful. Beach towels are provided, and just enough amenities in the kitchen for all of your needs. The second bedroom works beautifully for all but small children, as it is an independent space down a number of steps. It has its own little kitchenette and outdoor peaceful sitting space. Perfect for my 20-something daughter! A few things to note - we were the very first guests, mind you - so some of these things may be corrected by now. It is tricky to drive up the steep driveway in a regular car (unfinished road, lots of deep dirt), but there is also parking located down below. The neighborhood in April was filled with song - both music from the neighborhood and beautiful bird song. I highly recommend this home as your home-away-from-home. It's a winner! Laura, California

Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
Hilda is a native of Mexico. She has lived in the US for many years, and traveled the world in search of unique experiences with her husband Tim (who first visited Sayulita in 2000). With a desire to return home, they traveled throughout Mexico looking for "that place", and found, designed and built their place in Sayulita. They spend their time between the Hacienda Hilda and the HildaHaus, their netzero mountain hideout @ 9000' in Colorado, of course, with their dog Lucca.
