Overview

About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom private casita w full kitchen, large terrace, gorgeous views

Casa Colibri in Sayulita, Nayarit Mexico, is a beautiful, spacious, custom-built villa. The property is a 5 minute easy walk from the heart of the village and the main beach, yet offers a private and peaceful jungle retreat. Casa Colibri captures all the beauty and uniqueness Sayulita has to offer. You will enjoy gorgeous, wave crashing views of the ocean from the casita and pool, lush green mountains beyond, and the surrounding jungle with beautiful hillside homes. Buena Vista, our 2 bedroom casita, has its own private entrance, large terrace with dining table for 6 and chaise lounge chairs, overlooking the bay of Sayulita, the jungle, the pool, and our beautifully landscaped gardens, providing indoor/outdoor living in a lush garden setting.

The casita is very private with a separate walkway from a cobblestone street located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The décor is tasteful and authentic and the casita offers all the amenities to make your vacation easy and comfortable. The 1000 sq ft home surrounds a large terrace overlooking ocean, beach, and jungle views. The two spacious and airy bedrooms have views, comfy king-size beds w pillow top mattresses, 100% cotton linens, and air conditioning. They are situated at opposite ends of the casita, with the living room and kitchen in the center, to optimize privacy. Each bedroom has its own large bathroom. One bedroom has handcrafted french doors opening to the terrace, the other has a sitting area with views of the jungle. One of the bedrooms can also be arranged with two twin beds if desired. We have a housekeeper here 3-4 days a week to keep your casita fresh and tidy. Enjoy tasteful decor collected from our travels in Mexico, colorful tile and art, and comfortable furnishings throughout. The open concept living room/kitchen has French doors to a spacious terrace with a palapa shaded dining table for six and chaise lounge chairs. The pool is just steps from the terrace. The kitchen has a center island w seating and is fully equipped with cookware, appliances, and everything else you need to prepare a fabulous meal. There is a propane bbq on the terrace where you can relax with a margarita, grill your catch of the day, and watch the sunset.

The grounds of Casa Colibri are beautifully landscaped with walkways and terraces winding through an assortment of exotic, fragrant, flowering, tropical plants and trees. We are under a jungle canopy and enjoy a wide variety of exotic birds, iguanas, and butterflies. Enjoy refreshing ocean breezes blowing through the windows and across the patios.

Casa Colibri is situated on a quiet and charming cobblestoned street in a safe residential neighborhood. Our street, which is under a jungle canopy, welcomes visitors with birds chirping, iguanas resting in the trees, and neighbors walking their dogs. It is friendly and inviting. Beautiful flowers and tropical foliage abound. We are just south of town and an easy 5 minute walk to the central plaza and all the shops and restaurants, the main beach and surf break. We are also close to a stunning jungle trail that winds out to Playa los Muertos, a quieter, more remote swimming beach. It is truly an ideal location. Private and quiet yet close to all the action. Our property is walled and gated, and offers a secure, peaceful spot to retreat at the end of your day.

An easy 5 minute scenic stroll down our cobblestone street will take you to the beach and village, where there are awesome restaurants offering simple to gourmet, including American, Asian Fusion, Italian, French, and of course, delicious Mexican and seafood dishes. The shopping in town is fun with unique jewelry, clothing, home décor, art galleries, and handmade items from all over Mexico. Spa treatments abound in several locations in town. And if you want some adventure during you stay there is surfing, fishing, horseback riding, ATVing, jungle hiking, and zip lining, all for which Sayulita is famous.

A stay at Casa Colibri encompasses all Sayulita has to offer at a great value!

About Joan and Dave

In 2013 we quit our jobs and sold our home in San Diego to fulfill our dream of retirement in a Mexican seaside village.

We did our research, and decided Sayulita had all the qualities we were looking for. Authentic and quaint, yet lively and fun, a great surf break, stunning natural beauty, and a very friendly, safe community of locals and expats.

Joan and Dave purchased this villa in 2013

Why Joan and Dave chose Sayulita

After quite a few house hunting trips, we narrowed down our search to the south end of Sayulita. We wanted an exceptional home for our guests and ourselves, easy walking distance to town and the beach, with ocean and jungle views. When we toured Casa Colibri, we knew this was home. It is truly a special place that provides all Sayulita has to offer, beautiful views, easy access to town and the beaches, and tasteful, casual comfort.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Colibri is located in a lush, colorful, garden setting overlooking Sayulita's beautiful bay. It is on a cobblestone street in a neighborhood that is private and quiet, yet close to all the action at the beach or in town. The décor is tasteful and authentic with all the amenities to make your vacation an exceptional one.

A Dream Place

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Joan took care of us like we were family and the accommodations were over the top. This is truly a special place that is close to town but makes you feel like you are in a private retreat. Would definitely go back

Beautiful, spacious, and private

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying at Joan and Dave’s casita. The place was spacious and the design layout incredibly thoughtful. My husband and I had a large room with a king sized bed and private bathroom while our kids were on the opposite end of the place with their own beautiful and airy room and private bathroom. The kitchen and living spaces had plenty of equipment and seating as well as books and guides for getting around. Our favorite space was the outdoor palapa where we ate breakfast, played board games, and read (napped) in the shade after full days of swimming at the beach, surfing lessons and eating all over town. The pool was also a refreshing treat on hot afternoons. Joan got us the best rate on a golf cart and gave us excellent food recommendations. Another wonderful trip to Sayulita and we can’t wait to go back. We want Dave and Joan to be are our retirement mentors once our kids are off to college!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Buena Vista casita at Casa Colibri and it was excellent. Joan and Dave were very friendly and welcoming. Because the property is terraced on so many vertical levels, it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The casita itself was spotless, beautifully furnished, comfortable (and way more room than we needed). I especially enjoyed watching the local wildlife - the neighboring iguana sunning himself in the treetops, bright yellow birds, and a friendly on-site cat. The location was ideal, just a few blocks' walk to town, and we felt very safe, since the whole property is gated and secure. Would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves back in Sayulita.

Great location and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colibri is close to town but private. Buena Vista is a beautiful 2-bedroom unit with a great view. I was looking for something with traditional Mexican style and it didn’t disappoint! The interior design is beautiful, with lots of local art and traditional style furnishings. We loved watching the iguanas in the treetops and the refreshing pool. Dave and Joan are the best hosts and we would definitely stay here again!

Happiness in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start, except to say that my husband and I spent a week in Sayulita last Christmas, and I believe we found the very last available accommodation in all of Sayulita. This year I got on it early, and as soon as I found Joan and Dave's property, I was hooked. We stayed at their newly finished Tres Palmas, and it was absolute perfection. Every detail was perfect and carefully considered. A great and very comfortable bed, a fabulous and very functional kitchen, a lovely bathroom with lots of hot water, and best of all, filtered water on demand. The pool was wonderful for a cool and refreshing dip, and the views overlooking the ocean were blissful. Joan and Dave are very considerate and kind hosts, and went out of their way to offer interesting suggestions for places to check out, hidden beaches, cool places to eat. They were great fun and we were so happy with our 2 weeks there. Needless to say, it was rather hard to leave! I would highly recommend staying at Casa Colibri, and this is THE place to stay in Sayulita. Thanks Joan and Dave for making it as fabulous as it was!
