The rooftop terrace offers an incredible 360-degree view of ocean, bay, and jungle.  It is a great place to watch whales during migration season (mid December through March) or view the milky-way at night.

On the TOP FLOOR is the main entrance, large inviting living room, comfortable TV-room, a modern and fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and 1/2 bath.  It can be transferred into a huge open-air living space in combination with the exterior patio and dipping pool.  The floor to ceiling sliding doors are easily moved aside and sliding screens keep insects out.  Relax on the comfortable couches in the living room and tv-room, sit back in the traditional Mexican leather barrel chairs or rocking chairs on the patio, or dip into the top floor pool and enjoy a glass of your favorite something while taking in the stunning panoramic views of the ocean, bay, and town in front of you.

A stairway under a vaulted ceiling with sky-light leads to the middle floor.

On the MIDDLE FLOOR is a charming inner-courtyard with bubbling fountain perfect to relax by with a favorite book.  There are three bedrooms.  1. A master bedroom suite with king-sized bed, en-suite bath, and private garden patio.  2. A family suite consisting of two bedrooms: a master bedroom with king-sized bed and a bedroom with bunk-bed and single bed.  The family suite shares an en-suite Jack and Jill bathroom but each bedroom has its own entry from the hallway.  All bedrooms have A/C, ceiling fans, screened windows and balcony doors, top quality mattresses, 100% high quality cotton sheets, bathroom towels, and beach towels.

Stairs from the inner courtyard lead to the lower floor and garden.

The LOWER FLOOR has a master bedroom suite with king-sized bed, en-suite bath, walk-in closet, wrap-around patio, A/C, ceiling fan, screened windows and balcony doors, a top quality mattress, 100% high quality cotton sheets, bathroom towels, and beach towels. This floor gives access to the garden.

The GARDEN is a tropical paradise and is completely gated.  It has an expansive 10’x32’ infinity lap pool, pool cabana with shower and bath, basketball half-court, private off-street parking, large lawn, propane BBQ grill, a private jungle with creek (dry in the winter months), and many varieties of palm trees, hibiscus, bougainvillea, birds of paradise, gardenia, agave, bananas, papayas, mango, and lime.  It is home to dozens of birds and butterflies.

Villa Yerbabuena is located on the quiet north side of Sayulita.  It is steps away from the most private and pristine part of Sayulita's beach and within walking distance of the lively town center and main swim beach.  After a 10-minute walk along the palm-lined beach or frontage road you will find the first restaurants, shops, and surf break.  Villa Yerbabuena's proximity to the center of town is one of its many attractions.  It is close enough to walk to everything that Sayulita has to offer yet far enough to escape the hustle and bustle and find peace and tranquility. 

Sayulita is a picturesque fishing village where low-key tourism and a traditional pueblo life-style go hand in hand.  On the palm-tree lined beach you can rent lounge chairs and sun umbrellas, lunch at one of the many beach cafés, go for a swim or hit the waves for some first-class surfing, take surf lessons, go horseback riding, or charter a boat to go fishing or snorkeling. Scattered through town are wonderful restaurants, many of them serving savory local dishes, others serving international cuisine. There are boutiques, small grocery stores, internet cafes, a library, medical center, pharmacies, and a few family-operated tour operators offering jungle trips, zip line adventures, and visits to neighboring colonial towns.  In the center of town is a charming plaza where the locals and tourists linger in the evening.  Depending on the season you may witness colorful fiestas and religious celebrations.

Sayulita is about a 45-minute drive north of Puerto Vallarta.  We can assist with transportation arrangements from and to the airport (including a stop at a large supermarket), a golf car rental for local convenience, or car rental.  Taxi service is another option or the local Compostela bus!

Beautiful SAYULITA is Mexico at its best and VILLA YERBABUENA simply complements this.  Together they hold every promise for an unforgettable vacation and a perfect retreat to come back to year after year.

Great service, great setting
Really great stay. There are 3 king rooms and a room with bunks, so as a group of 7 we fit very comfortably. Coordination was easy, and the property manager was a click away. About a 10-15 minute walk from town, and up a hill at the end--both just FYIs because the view and quiet street are well worth it :) Will be back!

The property was fantastic! Close to the beach and close to town. Iris and Maru (the property manager) were exceptionally helpful. Provided the names of golf cart companies to use as well as a local chef who came in to cook 2 Dinners at home for our crew. Will definitely come back!

THE best place to stay in Sayulita
I recently spent 5 days in Sayulita and we stayed at Villa Yerbabuena. It was FANTASTICO!

Honestly, I'm unsure there is a better place to stay in the entirety of Sayulita. The house is beautiful and has great common/private areas. The upstairs pool/patio have stunning views of the bay and the downstairs pool is nice and private.

Furthermore, the location is ideal. Rent a couple of golf carts and you are a 5 minutes ride from the heart of town and a 2 min walk from the more private beach. You have the best views in town.

If you go to Sayulita, check to see if Yerbabuena is available!! Both the home owners and house manager were great to work with. You will not be disappointed.

Phenomenal service. Beautiful home!
Our stay at Yerbabuena Manor was beyond perfect. From the extremely helpful owner, to the lovely house manger, to the three great pools - all of it was perfect.

Our large group of seven adults and four kids took our very first trip to Sayulita in April at stayed at Yerbabuena manor From the beginning of inquiring about the house, Iris the owner was so great to work with. She made me feel comfortable and she was really quick to respond. Before our trip we even had a slight scare where we almost didn’t get our passport in time and Iris was thoughtful, understanding and willing to work with us in whatever way made sense. She also made sure we knew where the best spot was to get a COVID test and made that process totally simple for us.

The house manager helped us to organize transport to and from the airport and golf carts to be delivered to the house. Once we arrived, we were in awe of the home, the view, and the proximity to the beach and town. The beds were extremely comfortable. The home felt secure and safe. The staff that came to clean were lovely and did a great job. The house manager even helped us organize a chef to come for a couple days - talk about perfect!! We couldn’t have asked for anything better.

The only challenge we had was because of our small kids. We had two three year olds and one of the pools is not totally kid friendly and since the house is so large, it is easy to lose track and have one of the kids end up in the pool. This is certainly a parent’s responsibility and not the owner’s or a problem with the house, but just something to be aware of and prepared for.

This house is beautiful and Sayulita is fantastic. We loved our stay and can’t wait to come back someday.

Best Rental House EVER.
It is hard not to RAVE about this house. We have rented a LOT of places around the world, and this is unquestionably the best of the bunch.

Here’s a few examples:

- We love being SUPER close to the ocean (read: BIG HUGE VIEWS) but not right ON the ocean (loud waves, tourists, etc). This place is a three minute walk to a GORGEOUS beach - with warm-water waves that you can play in, read a book by, or just relax next to. All the tourist stuff is on the other side of the easily walkable beach.
- We love being CLOSE to a cool town with lots of culture, but not IN a town with everyone else. Villa Yerbabuena is a 10 minute walk to dining, shops, bars (whole package), but it actually sits quietly away from the hustle/bustle. If there was a walking-suburb of Sayulita, this house is in it (amongst the other palaces up the hill - you will feel like royalty)
- We love our creature-comforts: A clean pool (or two! - NOT kidding) to splash into and laze around. A garden that looks like someone manages it full time (actually, we saw the guy a LOT - so this could be true), a kitchen that is great for little AND big projects, air-conditioning that works beautifully… Yerba has it ALL
- We’re twitchy about safety. International travel sometimes involves some risk, but not at this house. It is built like a Swiss bank. Massive brick wall. Solid doors with double locks. Sayulita seemed VERY safe as a whole, but we felt EXTRA safe in this house.
- Want more? The rooms are massive. Everything was spotless on entry. Everything worked beautifully. An absolutely perfect house for a large group of people that want to be with each other (but occasionally retreat to their own spaces), in a wonderful city, with countless things to do during the day.
- Sitting on that deck in the morning, next to the mini-pool, sipping coffee and watching the pelicans and dinosaur-birds fly past in flocks is something we will not soon forget.

Fabulous house. Fabulous value. Thank you so much.

We’ll be back.

Beautiful Villa, Spectacular View, Perfect Location
Villa Yerbabuena is beyond stunning. What a view! Not to mention the perfect location (quiet part of town and a short walk to the beach). Our family of 5 had a wonderful relaxing time! A perfect spot to watch the amazing sunset every night. Swim in the pool and play some basketball in the courtyard. I can’t say enough about the beautiful decor and the attention to detail all throughout the villa. It was more than large enough and we explored and enjoyed different spaces. We had many movie nights thanks to the good selection of movies. The kitchen was large and we loved that! I'd cook and my 3 girls sat on the stools making salsa and guacamole. Other activities we enjoyed: Mosaic session with Maria, boat tour (saw whales!), hiked over to Malpaso Beach, Iguana sighting in the courtyard, and participated in the turtle release efforts. We really did have a wonderful time and it just what our family needed to end 2020.

Great stay, wonderful location
Gorgeous, beautifully-designed and maintained villa. Our three generation family of seven adults and two young children had a wonderful time there. Located in a quiet area close to the beach, but a quick walk to town where there is more action. Comfortable inside and outside common areas in the upper floor overlooking the ocean to all hang out together, but also plenty of spots to hide away and read a book on your own. Pool is so lovely, with both sunny and shady areas to relax nearby. We all enjoyed Sayulita, especially the beautiful beach, from my surfing daughter, to my beach-loving toddler granddaughter, to my foodie son. Could not envision a better spot for our family to get together. Iris, the owner, was quite responsive and helpful, as was Marusa, the on-site property manager.

Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
Hola! We are a small family of three living in San Francisco, CA. Thom is from Cupertino, CA, a general contractor and founder of Hammerhouse Construction, Inc. Iris is from The Netherlands and has a background in finance. We love designing and building and are currently remodeling our 100+ year old fixer-upper in San Francisco, CA. When our son was only 3 months old we traveled to Sayulita for our first family vacation. At the very end of Calle Loma Linda we rented a vacation home with beautiful views of the ocean and an empty lot below ... It was 2002. We were in the midst of the financial crisis and there was no way then that we could afford to buy a home in San Francisco ~ not even a fixer-upper but maybe an empty lot in Mexico? We fell in love with Sayulita and kept wondering about that lot. We were in Sayulita for a week or so but before we left we were the proud owners of an empty L-shaped lot. Now the dreaming could start! In 2007 we built Casa Escondida on the top part of the L-shaped lot. A one-bedroom casita ideal for the three of us to stay. The dreaming continued and in 2012 we built Villa Yerbabuena on the lower part of the lot. When we designed and built our homes we always had the privacy, comfort and needs of our family, friends, and you, our guests, in mind. Both Casa Escondida and Villa Yerbabuena are available for rent and offer space to play, space to come together, and space to retreat. Nuestra casa es su casa!
