Amazing Stay at Villas Rana Verde!!
Let me just start off by saying that the owners of Villas Rana Verde, Barry & Connie were absolutely incredible to work with from start to finish! We visited Sayulita in May of 2019 to start planning our June 2020 wedding. Barry spent an afternoon giving us a tour of his beautiful property, telling us all about Sayulita and some of his favorite spots. All of this before we even signed to rent the property. We had looked at several other properties for our wedding guests, but they just didn't compare to Rana Verde. We decided to rent out the entire property for our guests. Throughout the next several months, Barry kept in communication with us, answering all of our questions and just genuinely helping with anything we needed. He gave us great recommendations for airport transfers and cart rentals. I recommend using his suggestions as they have been in Sayulita for quite some time and have great relationships with vendors down there. When we would say who sent us, they knew Barry and Connie by name. When Covid hit, we had to cancel our June 2020 date. We reached out to Barry and he was so kind and understanding about everything. He offered to give us our deposit back rather than rescheduling if we needed to do so, which really just speaks volumes to the kind of people you are renting from. We knew we wanted to keep our wedding plans and just push them back a year so we opted to reschedule. Again, they were SO accommodating with everything! Our guests RAVED about the villas! The staff, who have all been there over 14 years, really go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay! We hosted a brunch their the day after our wedding for our guests. Dinora and team made a delicious brunch for about 30 people and our guests couldn't stop talking about how good the food was! We also had them do 2 other dinners and a breakfast when we stayed after the wedding. I highly recommend doing this. It's incredibly affordable, delicious, and more authentic than some places in town. From start to finish our experience with Connie and Barry and our time at Villas Rana Verde was magical! The icing on the cake for us though was a beautiful, hand painted Mexican wedding ornament given to us by Connie before we left to say congratulations on our nuptials! We collect ornaments from all of our travels, but this is by far the most special-- what a kindness! Being able to show our nearest and dearest this special little corner of the world meant so much to us. Do yourselves a favor, visit Sayulita and stay here with Connie and Barry. You won't be disappointed!!

Perfect spot for multi-generational family vacation!
We found this estate to be perfect for our Christmas vacation! It is set at the north end of town, a five minute golf-cart ride to the restaurants or a five minute walk down to the quiet end of the beach. We occupied two villas with four ensuite bedrooms, two pools and two kitchens between them, so there was plenty of privacy when we needed it. At the same time, we loved the easy access to a large covered common area and the seating area around the bigger pool, each with beautiful views over the bay. The hospitality by the owner and the staff was outstanding as well.

Our Family of 13 stayed in all of the homes offered by Villas Rana Verde...and we all had the best of time. We had people from ages of 42 to 72 and we all enjoyed it equally. The best part was the cooks that came to make us dinner and breakfast...the BEST food in Sayulita! I would strongly suggest staying here to have an amazing Family vacation!!

Beautiful Location
Stayed here 6 nights as part of a group of 17. Lots of room to not be on top of each other but small enough to let the kids run.

Multi-family Holiday Gathering
Casa Rana was a wonderful setting for our multi-family holiday gathering. The owners were kind, attentive, and accommodating. The layout worked well for our group which included three families, with young adult/teenage children. The location to town was perfect giving our mixed age group flexibility with easy access to town and the beach. We enjoyed the quieter location north of town. Additionally, the homes are close to the beach which allowed easy access for early morning surf fishing. Casa Rana's set up allowed freedom for members of our group to easily come and go as they pleased and enjoy all that Sayulita offers! It was also nice to have the availability of on-site chefs.

The views from Casa Rana are absolutely stunning!

Felix Navidad!

Amazing Tropical Paradise Villas!!!!
This property is the most beautiful getaway in Mexico! The layout of all the villas was incredible, with traditional Mexican style design, plunge pools all over and super secluded. It was perfect for our big group. We had breakfast cooked onsite in the outdoor kitchens and the food was really really delicious, those women know how to make a great Mexican meal. Barry was amazing at helping with everything and very responsive. All in all, it was an amazing time and we really appreciate everyone involved for making it a flawless weekend.

This place is AMAZING!..Beautiful, lush, tropical property that feels like your own secluded paradise!..The casas are extremely clean and well taken care of. They are totally updated with great kitchens, soft comfy beds, ocean views, private pools for each casa, and fast WiFi. Having your own private pool in each casa is awesome! The beach is just steps away from the property and is beautiful. This part of the beach is super clean and way less crowed...If you have a group or a large family this IS the place to stay!!

Spectacular Views; Easy Access to Beach and Town
Villas Rana Verde was perfect for our family Christmas vacation (11 adults ranging in age from 18 to 85). The property is beautiful and well maintained. The pools, rooms and the kitchens are all clean and well appointed. We used Angel's services for transportation to and from the airport and that worked well. Lucia and her team are wonderful cooks. We ate about half our meals at the Villa. It is about a 5 minute walk to a relatively secluded part of the beach and town is an easy 15 minute walk. We also rented a golf cart that was very convenient. Barry (the owner) was a pleasure to work with and very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend Villas Rana Verde and we hope to return again soon.

Beautiful and easy!
We loved staying at this property! We stayed in casa Mikayla and had friends in both other villas on the property and it was just perfect! Barry arranged for cooks to come and the food was sooo good with tons of left overs for the next day. Everything was clean and well maintained and if there was anything we needed, it was easy to get ahold of someone. Easy 10-15 min walk into town on the beach or the streets and it felt very safe. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

Incredible Stay for our Large Group!
Our stay and level of service we received as this property was top notch! We rented all three houses on the property and they were all impeccable with excellent air conditioning. The housekeepers prepared breakfast and dinner every night and not only was it excellent, but it was incredibly reasonable. There are three of four pools on the property. The owners answered all my emails within the hour and helped with all of our needs. We will be back!
