Description

Xocotla (Sho-cot-la) in Sayulita, Mexico sits on a small hill overlooking the delightful fishing/surfing village. Xocotla is an indigenous Nahuatl word meaning "where the fruit trees are plentiful". A canopy of ancient white fig trees provided the name for our home, which is tucked into the corner of a huge jungle garden. Constructed in 2003/2004, Xocotla was designed by acclaimed architect Jose Enrique del Valle in conjunction with the owners, in an elegant and eco-friendly manner.  Combining the very best of modern and traditional Mexican styles, cooling ocean breezes and ceiling fans provide the only air-conditioning you might need. Enjoy the sound of the surf as it lulls you to sleep. The house is centrally located part-way up a small hill above the village in a quiet residential neighborhood. An easy 3-minute walk takes you to the village and another 2 minutes finds you at the beach. A car is not necessary to enjoy all that Sayulita has to offer, but there is parking for two small cars. Due to the design of the house, children 10 and under are not allowed.

Amixtli at Xocotia is tastefully furnished and decorated with traditional handicrafts from Mexico's famous markets. The beds (either king size or two twins, depending on your needs), as well as the bed linens and bath towels, are of the highest quality.  There are safes for your peace of mind.  

AMIXTLI ("ocean breeze") is a beautiful one-bedroom apartment. A wall of windows with French doors opens to a large covered terrace complete with dining and sitting areas and full kitchen. The terrace overlooks the two pools and the garden and has filtered ocean views through the palms and bamboo. The dining table seats four comfortably. The bathroom is very large with a huge walk-in shower complete with tiled bench and pebbled floor.  One can sit on the terrace or lie in bed for hours and watch an endless variety of tropical birds and iguanas in the giant white fig tree.

In the garden, shared with the other two units on the property, you will find the heated pool and a large terrace. A shallow dipping pool overflows from a waterfall to a larger pool below, which has a sunken bench set into a stone grotto. The terrace also has a large stone grill which can be shared by all. At night, a pleasing ambiance is created by soft lights in old fishing baskets suspended from a branch of the giant fig tree. A delightful bridge crosses the arroyo to another terrace in the far garden and a hammock, providing yet more sitting areas.  

Xocotla is ideal as a place for family or friends to vacation together with the luxury of separate apartments, allowing everyone to have their privacy while providing several areas in which to congregate. Or come to stay in one apartment and perhaps forge new and lasting friendships.

If you are interested in renting the other apartments on the property please see below:

XOCHITLAN - 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom alongside the pool

IXPAN - 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom upstairs with beautiful views

A little bit of paradise
What more can be said about this wonderful little place that hasn't been said already? Great location close to the downtown core area but very quiet which was a pleasant surprise. David and Michael met us and gave us a very short, thorough introduction to the apartment. Spacious bedroom, well stocked kitchen and a lovely patio/balcony area.The apartment is one of only three making it a very non congested facility. We only saw one other guest the whole time we were there and never encountered anyone at the pool during our stay. They have thought of virtually everything to provide and my son, who is an avid crib player was delighted to find a crib board as he had left his at home. Beach towels and even a beach umbrella were there as well. I would give this facility an enthusiastic 5 out of 5 stars! Well done, David and Michael.

Hidden Jewel!
Loved everything about this place but the climb to get to it! Without the climb though, there wouldn't be the magnificent view! It's clean and comfortable and truly felt like home for the short time we were there!

Days of the Iguanas
we enjoyed our 3-week stay in Amixtli, fascinated by the iguanas in the fig tree and the peculiar song of the chachalatas. our suite was spacious with an open-air kitchen overlooking the pool and garden with a view of the ocean in the distance. our hosts were gracious and accommodating, flowers in the room and fruit for our first morning. the location of Xocotla is a good balance of quiet nights and convenience to the busy town centre, just steps away. a beach umbrella and towels rounded out simple needs, where the main attraction is going to the beach and watching the surfers ride the waves.
the only drawback was the lack of privacy in the kitchen where the seating was located and where we spent most of our indoor time. from the deck chairs on the patio, we were clearly visible to other guests seated there. but a few blankets thrown over the wooden rail that spans the large ached opening did the trick of giving us some extra privacy. all in all, a lovely stay. thank you David and Michael.

What a charming place!
We will definitely come back to Xocotla! There were many things we liked about it. David and Michael were just wonderful hosts! We really enjoyed getting to know them a bit. It was nice that they were there.
Our room was just perfect for our needs and the gardens and pool area are fantastic! Some of the super nice touches that I enjoyed: We had fresh flowers in our room and a small bowl of fruit on our kitchen table. There were books and magazines to read (which I did.)
The location is awesome. So close to the central square.
It was all around just delightful!

Charming Oasis - close to town and beach
We loved Xocotla and both the owners were so hospitable and attentive to any requests we had! The studio was super clean and cozy w a Mexican decor that made it feel like a home away from home! The open kitchen and dining/seating area was spaciousness (more so in our unit) Great rock floor shower! Refreshing pools and unbelievable gardens filled with birds and Iguana

Xocotla was Heaven!
I stayed in the Amixtli room for two weeks in January 2018 and came to believe that I was in the best possible place in Sayulita! It far exceeded my expectations. David and Michael were excellent hosts and greeted me warmly with tons of information about the house and the town. Part way into my visit, after I asked about some of the birds I had seen, they purchased and lent me a guide to Pacific Coast birds (I identified 24 while there). That gesture was just so kind and added to my enjoyment as I spent many hours looking down on their beautiful pool area and garden and up into the enormous tree that was home to three huge iguanas and many birds coming and going.

Xocotla is beautifully designed and very comfortable in every way. I so enjoyed having a large balcony that included a full outdoor kitchen which I used frequently so that I could take my time getting started in the mornings and enjoy the peace and quiet of my home base before heading out to the much busier action of Sayulita. It was equally great to come back home and have a drink on the balcony while watching the sun set over the distant ocean and the wildlife settling down for the night. I slept with the huge double doors to the balcony open almost every night (with locked and barred screen doors in place). Only twice was the noise (music) from town so loud that I had to close the doors to block the sound. I can tell you that there are probably many expensive hotels in town that are not so secluded from the noise of the very active nightlife that Sayulita offers.

I thought Xocotla was in a perfect location...only a 5 minute walk down the hill into town, but far enough away that it felt quite secluded (thanks also to the lush and beautiful garden that surrounded the house—not all places on the hill had this same effect).

The space was immaculately clean when I arrived and was kept up by weekday cleaning visits that also included frequent towel and linen changes.

I loved Sayulita’s busy and fun vibe exactly because I had the peaceful, serene and beautiful Xocotla to come home to!

Just what we needed!
Michael and David (and Harry the dog) are incredible hosts, and Xocotla was exactly what we were looking for. Very short walk to town, the best restaurants and all of our Sayulita haunts but still removed enough for some peace and quiet. We stayed for nearly a month and had everything we needed. The kitchen was supplied with all of the utensils to cook a meal at home, there was daily maid service, both apartments we used (Amixtli & Xochotal) were private and cozy, and the grounds were well maintained. It was a treat and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great stay in central location
Just tucked up and away on a quiet street 5 minutes up from the plaza, our accomodations were very serene with helpful hosts. Beautiful gardens, lovely pool to escape the midday heat. Private deck with outdoor kitchen. Lots of windows and fans, we were cool without having ac. Was a bit worried about creepy crawlers but only had a cute gecko come hang out on the ceiling. Saw amazing iguanas by the pool. It is a little piece of paradise. Would come back.
