About This Listing
Welcome to Casita Salate
The delightful Casita Salate is located in the desirable quiet north beach area of Sayulita in a neighborhood of beautiful homes. The newly built house and casita is a thoughtful combination of traditional and modern Mexican architecture surrounding a tropical garden shaded by a native Salate tree and surrounded by a wall draped in multicolored bougainvillea.
The 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom casita has no detail left untouched. Whether you are lounging in the salt water pool watching butterflies play in the lush garden foliage or listening to the variety of tropical birds that daily visit the Salate tree; you will be assured to enjoy your stay.
Casita Salate is attractively decorated with hand painted Talavera tiles and Mexican arts and crafts. Shower under the stars in the outside shower, sit and sip your morning coffee with views of a manicured tropical garden, or walk out the front gate and arrive at the beach in one easy minute. The center of town is a short 10 minute stroll by beach or road.
Take a short 1 minute walk out the front gate to the beach. 10 -15 minute walk south will take you into the bustling downtown area of Sayulita. There are numerous restaurants and stores for shopping. Beautiful beaches, world-class surfing, relaxing jungle walks, and simple village life awaits you. If you are feeling adventurous you can take a short bus ride or drive to the 4 Seasons/ St Regis in Punta Mita. There you can play a few rounds of golf or explore the area beaches. Travel north 15 minutes and find yourself on the streets of San Pancho where you can take in a polo match or wander the streets for more shopping. If you are a hiker, then pack up your picnic, grab the umbrellas and beach towels and head on a low tide hike through the jungle. A secluded beach and soaring brown pelicans await your arrival just through the hole in the rock!
Step out of reality and away from the day to day stresses and into a dreamy Mexican casita. Come, play, relax and enjoy all that Casita Salate and Sayulita have to offer. The perfect spot for creating new and unforgettable memories. We look forward to having you as our guests!

I cannot begin to explain just how happy we were with Casita Salate! It feels like an oasis in paradise! All amenities listed in the description were completely accurate, the AC is ice cold, every little piece of decor inside has been picked with an eye for the authentic. My husband and I were in town for a friend's wedding and out of all of the other folks' places we visited while there, this spot held true as the best all-around. The beach is literally a stone's throw from the back gate, and it is a short walk into the heart of town. All neighbors/locals we encountered were incredibly nice and very courteous. Thank you to Jorge, the property manager for being so hospitable towards us! Rosa and Jesus as well! I HIGHLY recommend this spot for anyone who is interested, and will definitely have this as our number one pick if we end up back in Sayulita. Thank you for everything!
We really enjoyed our stay at Marcie's casita! Marcie arranged for transportation from the airport (additional fee) and gave us a tour of the property when we arrived. The casita is the perfect size for a couple. With a kitchen, indoor and outdoor showers, a pool just steps from our door, and the ocean a block away, we had everything we needed to enjoy our week in Sayulita! We 1-2 trips 'downtown' daily, which was just a 10-15 minute walk from the casita. I would highly recommend staying at Marcie's casita for a romantic and relaxing getaway.
Casita Salate was even more beautiful in person than the photos, which is saying something! Marcie was an exceptional hostess and my girlfriend and I had a great time. It was an easy, flat 10-15 min. walk to the center of town and more active area of the beach. We really appreciated the use of Marcie's boogie boards, beach umbrella, chairs, and towels. The section of beach that was a block or so from Casita Salate was perfect for watching the sun set. We definitely want to stay here again!
Absolutely gorgeous Casita!!! Marcie pays attention to every detail and makes your stay in Sayulita a truly relaxing, enjoyable and comfortable experience. We were in awe of the tropical setting, and the location to the beach and town couldn't be beat. Highly recommended!
Amazing. Clean sheets, towels were freshly laundered, house was very clean, accommodations were great! Indoor outdoor shower (perfect), pool (amazing), location (1 short block from the beach), Marcie (The BEST!). Marcie was available, and if busy was extremely prompt in getting back in touch, checked in on us, made sure we were taken care of, and treated us wonderfully. We absolutely loved our stay at the Romantic Garden Casita. Highly recommend.
This was one of the most beautiful settings! Marci went above and beyond in making our vacation exceptional. We hope to be her guests sometime in the near future!
We absolutely loved Marcie's place! It's in a gorgeous tropical setting and the casita is just lovely. Marcie is a warm and gracious host who has created a beautiful space for her guests. Everything about the place is perfect and we hated to leave! Many thanks, Marcie for a lovely stay! We will be back :)
