Located just 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita is an interesting mix of a town. Famous for it's surfing and Bohemian vibes, it is home to both expats (from Europe, US & Canada) and local Mexican families that have lived here for generations. You essentially have two choices when it comes to lodging here - you can either choose to stay in town, close to the beach and nightlife, or in a private home in the surrounding hills. Regardless of where you stay, you will fall in love with Sayulita - everyone does. There is a something special here.
The Spirit of Sayulita
This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home fits the definition of Sayulita exactly! It is of course best to rent this place with a large group given its wonderful open spaces encouraging people to spend time together. It also has the perfect vacation palette - natural elements, soft neutrals with pops of vibrant fuchsia and orange. The home just feels happy, which is what a vacation should be.
Of course, any true vacation rental must have a pool and this was an amazing one! Completely enveloped in lush green foliage, you can easily spend the whole day here and forget about the nearby ocean. It is a perfect place to host an afternoon BBQ which we did one day. With a margaritas in hand, most guests really never got out of here, big surprise!
Staying in this luxury rental was such a design inspiration for me. I certainly hope to have a beach home one day and there was so much from this property that I have saved in my dream folder. I mean a hot tub in the middle of your living room, why not? Day or night this place was a perfect vacation stay!
