Mariposas: Sayulita Mexico

House - Entire home/apt · Manuel Plascencia, Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico

Tres mariposas offers views of jungle & mountains all around. Decks give you shade & sun options. Cooling river & ocean breezes float nicely. Affordable Peace & Quiet with Comfortable Quality & Art Decor Safe Neighborhood & Mgrs live nearby.

The Space

This is a Great Affordable Location in Sayulita; Easy access with wide views of Jungle & close ( 5 to 8 min walk ) to the Beaches. This is the upper level of a duplex near the river. We have a nice Large Bathroom with double sinks, located between 2 bedrooms and a deck that wraps around two sides for easy access to shade, sun & breezes. The Kitchen is fully stocked with pots & pans & gear to make your stay enjoyable.

Living room has couch, desk, chairs & room for Yoga or two extra guests if maximum of six needed. We have 5 ceiling fans and many portable fans as well. Unless the breezes stop ( late Aug to Oct can be warm ) the flow of air coming up the nearby river keeps one cool and often one can hear the ocean waves in the stillness of the night.

The decor is bright & " MEX-ZEN " Colorful! With lots of fish & parrots to keep you company and each room has an accent color wall of Lemon, Sky-Blue, Avocado or Melon - There are seashells & wall art that create an intriguing ambiance of Joy!

Being a short walk from the Town Plaza, we usually have a quieter neighborhood than most. Once in awhile a Cantina or the Ehido Center will host a party - but things are very mellow and the music of the culture gives a nice soundtrack for your vacation. We have some bicycles for you to use as well.
Restaurants abound in this tiny town: over 50 to choose from! Bus stop to travel to/from Puerto Vallarta is fairly close as well

Our Friends, Halo & Arturo, live in the Apt below and are great resources as well as our managers. They make the BEST Sushi and are so wonderful that we've counted them amongst our amenities - you WILL Make new Friends & Enjoy!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house was amazing we had an awesome time. The price was so good and the place was perfectly located! It was just a short walk (or golf cart ride) into town and to the beach and after hearing from other visitors in the area we realized that being just that far out insulated you from a lot of the noise that is inherent in the town. Gotta say though without Halo and Arturo (the downstairs neighbors/caretakers) we would have had a much different visit, they were amazing hosts and had personal connections with just about everything we wanted to do in town, it was like visiting and having ready made friends to give you all the guidance you need. I hesitate to recommend it too highly because I want it to be available when we go back! Loved it, had an amazing time!

  • We loved Mark's place! The neighborhood was just as he said, close enough to walk to town, and the beach. We did this every day we were there.
    A cantina played Mexican music just down the street, and it was the perfect volume, loud enough for listening, but not overwhelming. We sat out on the deck in the evenings and listened to it while we had drinks. They stopped at 10:00 pm every night.
    We felt very safe to walk at night, there were street lights and the people were very nice.
    Halo and Altero were just downstairs and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We felt like we could call on them if we needed to. We also felt that our stay was private.
    Mark's place was very clean and smelled very fresh. We loved all the tiles and the large bathroom. The bed was comfortable and we slept great.
    We ate at several little taco places in town, and there are many options for restaurants as well.
    It was a fun place to stay and when we go to Mexico next year we will hopefully be able to book Mark's place again!

  • A great two bedroom 1 bath apartment that looks just like the pictures. The photos don't include the short dirt road to get there though (make sure you take the fork to the right and a left onto the street when coming into town, if driving). Mark lives out of town, but the couple living downstairs are there to help and answer any questions we had. They were around most of the time. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach and everything we needed or wanted was easily accessible. Thanks.

  • We only booked our stay the night before arrival, everything was ready and the apartment in perfect condition. The guys taking care of the place were very friendly and helped us immediately... The only negative about the apartment is the 10 minute walk to the center but that's really just a small negative point. Great Value and we will be back next time we visit beautiful Sayulita!! Thanks, Mark
