Villa Zafiros in Sayulita sits in the heart of town. Although surrounded by lush green space, you’re only one block from the plaza, the church, restaurants and the vibrant energy that is Sayulita. Two more short blocks and you’re standing before the Pacific Ocean. The beach, the surf and the sun… all waiting for you. Because of the central location it’s an easy walk for most people. Staying at Villa Zafiros will offer you easy access to convenience stores, local grocers, French bakeries and more. Enjoy being a part of the community, greeting the locals as you walk down Calle Gaviotas, watching children play and families gather.

Villa Zafiros was dreamt up in the summer of 2013 with the help of an award winning architect and his amazing crew of craftsmen. Six months later our dream came alive. Once a surfer’s hangout,Villa Zafiros now consists of four spectacular levels, each designed with every detail in mind. Throughout the home you'll find beautiful design detailing, hand selected and locally crafed furniture, original art and luxurious linens that will make you feel right at home. 

The property is secured by a large entrance gate which leads to an inviting outdoor garden lounge equipped with locally crafted seating, ceiling fans, ambient lighting,a fully equipped bar and a private bathroom. Climb the winding staircase to the second floor where you'll find a heated pool, pool terrace and stunning views. A 100 year old fig provides natural shade when you need a break from the sun. From this level stroll 11 feet above the ground across our bridge that takes you to our grill and lounge terrace, all private, and all yours. 

As you step onto the third level you'll enter onto a balcony with views of the pool, ocean, jungle and town with a constant fresh ocean breeze. Find two beautifully decorated, air conditioned queen guest rooms with a bathroom adjoining the two rooms. Outside the bedrooms is where you'll find a living room, fully equipped kitchen and a custom wooden dining table that can seat up to 8 people. Private,serene and perfectly appointed, you will enjoy dining in the jungle while watching the sunset over Punta Sayulita

Climb the steps onto the fourth level and you'll find a huge glass walled master suite with stunning 360 degree views that covers an entire floor.and designed to meet your every need. Invite your friends and family up for morning or evening gatherings on our outdoor rooftop lounges. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living with a stocked bar perfect for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails, terrace seating, luxurious king size bed and private bathroom - this is a 5-Star tree house. 

There’s no doubt about it. You’re in the heart of Mexico.

Dream House!
I cannot express the sheer joy and wonder this house brought to our group! The home and decor are absolutely amazing, but the many outdoor spaces is really what makes this home stand out! It was so great to follow the sun and have multiple places to spend time throughout the day, and even with our group of 9 the house felt huge! The lushness of the garden is unbelievable and Mike and Lola have done a top notch job at making this such a beautiful experience. The pool gets the perfect amount of sun and kitchens were well equipped- an absolutely perfect house and we are already planning our next excursion back! Thank you Mike for all your patience as I asked a million questions and to Ramon, Belen and Hernan! Mike you have a wonderful staff on the ground and we appreciate you all so much! Thanks again for letting us stay in your incredible home!

A Vacation Like No Other
I don’t know how we found this gem, but I’m so glad we did! This home is such a better experience than a resort…yet is a resort on its own! We enjoyed 9 days here with another family and hated to leave. This home is such a unique place I don’t think we would stay anywhere else in Sayulita! With 9 people in our party, we never felt on top of each other. There is always a nook or look out to retreat to for alone time. The art, architecture and fixtures are so beautiful and one of a kind! We LOVED the open air experience of the home and felt like we were living like and among the locals. NEVER ANY BUGS! The bedrooms are so comfortable and very cool - each with their own air conditioner. The kitchens are beautiful and fully stocked! We enjoyed the pool every day - what a plus and a place to debrief our day in beautiful Sayulita. This home is the PERFECT location in Sayulita…you can walk to everything! You don’t need a car OR a golf cart! It is in the heart of the town and surrounded by everything wonderful in Sayulita! We’ve done many Air BNBs and VRBOs and have NEVER had as wonderful a host as Mike, the owner. His attention to detail is unmatched. Every day we referred to his notes on Sayulita for recommendations. The food, the excursions, the beach, the vibe…this is the most unique place we’ve ever visited and we WILL be back! Our teens (18, 15 & 10) say this is their fav vacation EVER!

Beautiful Home
Casa Joyero is incredibly beautiful and romantic. The outdoor showers are the greatest thing ever and the kitchen and amenities are top notch. You won't find nicer in the city and especially not that close to everything you would want.

Most Amazing House in the Most Amazing City
I cant say enough about Mike and his hospitality and availability. He clearly knows how to make someone feel welcome, relaxed, and confident about a stay.

The details and finishes at Villa Zafiros are far better than you see in the majority of Mexico. Ramon and supporting staff were incredibly quick to respond to any needs.

The city itself is one of the most welcoming with incredibly nice people and the BEST food I have had. We will definitely be staying here again.

Incredible Family Vacation - Thanks to this property!
We rented both properties, Villa Zafiros and Casa Joyero for our family of eight adults and two babies (ages 1 year, 5 months and 11 months) for just over a week in November. From the second we were picked up the airport by Mike and Lola's recommended car service (highly suggested) we had the vacation of our dreams. Both properties are truly immaculate and with 10 people total there was more than enough comfortable space.

Decor/ Architecture : It’s almost impossible to put into words how stunning Mike and Lola’s properties are. Incorporating the environment, like the tree in the courtyard of Casa Joyero and the use of outdoor and indoor space at Villa Zafiros as well. It was unlike anything we had ever seen. The photos speak for themselves but I can say - even with the images going in the properties far exceeded our expectations. Our jaws dropped walking in — and we were still pinching ourselves on the day we left. There is intimacy at both properties with common space — bringing everyone together and yet you have your own privacy when time. The decor is so tastefully done — from the throw pillows to Moroccan style lighting to their tile — it’s next level.

The master suite on the top floor of Villa Zafiros is hands down the best space I have ever seen let alone stayed in. Their use of windows and natural light was stunning, the fountain!!! — and the view of the city and ocean — breathtaking. We all really loved the pool deck — it’s the most perfect size and space. We found ourselves congregating here a lot of the time - and the babies could not get enough of the pool. There is a little wade ledge/ pool shelf that was so perfect for them. The pool deck also extents to a separate sun and relaxation hang space with an outdoor grill. We spent a lot of mornings as a family drinking coffee and overlooking the city from here.

Every room has heart and soul and such style — there was no fighting over who stayed where (okay, but the master is pretty outstanding) and not one person felt slighted. It’s unlike any property! Location: We did not realize going in that we had the crown jewel of locations. Just off the square and no more than a 5 minute walk to the beach. We did rent a golf cart (great for the babies) but really found ourselves walking everywhere. There is an incredible French bakery just steps away with great espresso. We ate out a lot and enjoyed every restaurant we went to — the food was incredible and the walk back was so mellow.

Spectacular Villa!
Our family had a lovely stay at Villa Zafiros! Everything about the home, from its unique and special decor, the amazing views, the refreshing swimming pool, was perfect. You can tell that Mike and Lola have put a lot of special care and personal touches in this home. We have rented quite a few vacation homes in various parts of the world and we have to say that the beds in this home were the most comfortable that we have come across!

The location of the Villa is fabulous. Definitely convenient to walk into town for a bite to eat, a walk on the beach or to be able to sit on the patio and hear the waves and sounds of Sayulita.

We've been to Sayulita before, but prior to our arrival we were provided a very detailed list of restaurants, activities, shopping vendors, etc. Some we hadn't yet heard of. Our family will definitely be returning to Villa Zafiros!

Unforgettable Family Vacation- Villa Zafiros Sayulita
We had such an amazing time staying at Villa Zafiros. We are a family of 8 and it can be very challenging finding just the right vacation spot for us. The house is like no other vacation rental that I have seen before. Every detail is done perfectly from the tile in the kitchen to the Moroccan light fixture hanging in the upstairs terrace. It was like living amongst art. I still want to duplicate pillows on the couch in the living room. One of my favorite memories from the trip is my husband reading on the daybed on the newly built terrace, my two youngest were swimming in the pool and my 4 oldest were playing a card game in the living room. It was exactly what we were hoping for and more.

The owners truly make you fall in love with Sayulita prior to your arrival. We had an endless list of restaurants and activities already created for us. We loved being in town. We had no need for a car or a golf cart. We walked everywhere. We were at the beach every day and then we would be laying by the Villa Zafiros pool by late afternoon. Every night we tried a new restaurant and I can truly say that Sayulita is a foodie mecca. Our older children would venture out for late night tacos that would never disappoint. We loved every restaurant we ate at, however, YOU must go to Los Corazones for the cucumber and jalapeño margarita. There are no words!!

Sayulita is a lively town and we were right in the heart of it. When you stay at Villa Zafiros not only are staying in a beautiful home you are also being well taken care of by the owners and their property managers. Every detail is covered and it makes for a truly relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We will definitely be back!

Stunning Property
Nine of us moved into the combined properties of Villa Zafiros and Casa Joyero for a week over the holidays. Whether you rent just the villa or just the casitas or both - you will fall in love. It's not only the extraordinary architecture and interior design but also the location. We've stayed in Sayulita before - but never in the heart of the village. This place is a complete oasis and yet only steps from the vibrant village.

You walk out the gates and down the small slope and you are immersed in the heart of Sayulita. Return to the property and suddenly you are again in your own world. Mike and Lola's sense of design and their rich selection of art, furniture and fabrics transport you. From the breathtaking views from the top floor outdoor space to the pool deck to the grand dining table in the breezeway of Casa Joyero you are surrounded by beauty and comfort.

Mike and Lola's relationships in the village also add to the experience. Their manager Ramon is a wonderful person - accessible, kind, and generous. He drove me all the way to a bank in Bucerias one afternoon when all the ATM machines in the village were empty. He would not take anything more than gas money. He's just that way. And I learned so much about the area spending that time with him.

Outside the property just steps away are some of the very best places to eat! Tacos for lunch everyday at Il Itacate are a must. Dinner at Gusto in the square also a must. Mary's and Leda and on and on - all just steps from this very exotic and private property. You should go!

Villa Zafiros Sayulita
Firstly, the house itself is amazing, each floor and level perfectly crafted and conceived, very comfortable. have no doubts regarding the house itself - the 3rd level's view is extraordinary, i'll go back just for that! Now, the pueblo of Sayulita: sleepy, slow, friendly, communal, easy and calm and dusty. what I liked best about Sayulita was the fact that it all blended, the gringos with the townspeople themselves, the surfers and the foreigners all mixed in a calm and unforgettable ambiance.. I will return soon! thanks!
