Interaction with Guests
I love to meet my guests and point them towards things they might find interesting. If you have questions about town, ATM's, nightlife etc. just ask! The bungalow is an entirely separate space from the owners apartment, offering as much privacy as you desire. I travel often, either myself or my assistant will be happy to answer any questions and make arrangements for you.
The bungalow is located close to the downtown square and main beach. It is in the south side of town, which is a lively local area. If you forget something at the beach you can walk to the bungalow relatively easily, without a huge hill. It is in the local neighborhood, so you will have more noise than farther out from the center of town. You will hear the local neighborhood village activity, including roosters and the many variety of birds nearby. We have an enormous iguana that passes by on the walkway periodically. I love it for the real local neighborhood experience. The best prices on produce and meat are just down my road. A local fresh juice stand has just opened across the street. This neighborhood is where the local restaurants shop :-)
You can walk from the bungalow to any part of Sayulita easily, no car or golf cart rental is needed. The bungalow is very centrally located and not up an enormous hill. We can arrange for airport transportation for a fee, with a stop at Mega market or you can take the green Sayulita bus from the PV airport. Cost: 35 pesos. (less than $4 USD) Walk across the sky bridge and the bus comes every 20 minutes. Tell the attendant you are going to Sayulita, he will help you. The little taco restaurant at the bus stop is a great place to get some MX pesos , a cold drink and a plate of food for the 45 minutes ride to Sayulita.

Our visit to Sayulita and the bungalow was overall a positive experience. From the initial reservation and through some itinerary changes, Debbie was accommodating and helped answer any questions about the area. It was entirely our fault that we decided to go in off-season, i.e.- hot and very humid weather, and staying in an open-aired room without air conditioning was difficult to say the least.
Fortunately, the space offers three fans- a ceiling and 2 floor- and these were on 24/7 as long as we were inside. The pool is another perk, which helped us cool off as well as numerous showers (bathroom is very cute). There wasn't any extra toilet paper besides the one roll, so we bought it throughout our trip, which was important because one of us came down with Montezuma revenge. The combination of being sick & staying in this kind of bungalow almost made us leave 3 days early for an accommodation with air. But, we would have lost money and spent more, so we stayed on...
It was also the beginning of mosquito season and we were eaten alive, unless under the mosquito net over the bed. This, however, was at the end of its season as well, and it was shredded at the top which required us to cover the holes with my scarf. It was also fairly dirty, and although there was a new one in a package ready to hang, we wondered why this wasn't actually replaced for the guests... The bed is big, firm, but we did notice black mold on the pillows themselves, probably just due to a long season of humidity and sweat.
Since Debbie was away through most of our trip she was kind to offer breakfast for us in town every morning, which and started the day off nicely. The kitchenette outside has amenities, but it was so hot, there was absolutely no cooking. We used the fridge for drinks and snacks.
Walking to town was always entertaining and its not far at all to everything you could need. I think the cost of the bungalow compared to its "comforts" is a bit high. Debbie mentioned we were her last guests for 3 months, so we were obviously renting at the very end of high season when the weather becomes more intense. I think the bungalow was well used by this point, and just at a place of needing some freshening up.
Sayulita is charming, fun, and we enjoyed exploring the beaches and getting to know the local community. A great gem in Mexico!
Bianca, thank you for your feedback about your stay in Sayulita. Usually I am on the property to help guests personally, and I'm sorry I had to travel to the states for a majority of your stay. The bungalow is closed now until October when it will be reopened for annual renovation after the rainy season. You did catch the beginning of the humid off season and although the bungalow is designed after the traditional coastal architecture to take advantage of coastal breezes, and release warm air, it is perfect most of the year, but not the same as A/C in the summer months. I've struggled with a future decision as to continuing with a traditional beautiful Palapa roof or change the design to traditional brick/mortar and A/C. I'll take your feedback into account - probably the decision will be decided according to if I stay open year round or close during the summer, as I am doing this year. I'm glad you enjoyed your breakfasts at Choco-Banana, the owner is a friend of mine and the restaurant is a local hub for travelers as well as locals. Congratulations on finishing your degree and I hope you can come experience Sayulita next winter when the weather not so extreme. You guys caught a really hot week, but at least it wasn't pouring rain and a hurricane!
We stayed in Debbie's bungalow for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. It is in a great location just a short walk from everywhere you want to go, extremely clean, has a small but very nice pool and is very spacious. Debbie also makes amazing breakfast every morning which was an added treat. Would definitely stay here again!
Debbie's bungalow is a really cool place to spend some time to relax, it is really close to town, you can just walk to the beach, the place is just as she describes it, plus she even made us breakfast, we would love to come back, thanks Debbie.
We loved this place! It worked out perfectly - easy walk into town, clean, and comfortable.
We stayed 12 nights in Debbie's bungalow and it was perfect! I'm actually a little homesick. Debbie was out of town for most of the time that we were there but she made sure we were well taken care of. The bungalow is exactly as pictured. Very spacious and while we didn't use the kitchen it was nice to have a refrigerator to keep our snakes and beverages cold.
The home is very close to the main plaza but tucked away in a locals neighborhood. It literally takes 5 mins to walk to where all the action and yet it is far away enough that you feel removed. We loved being among the locals and by the end of our stay we actually felt like we were at home. In the morning you first hear the birds, then the ghekos, then the dogs, then the roosters. The early morning 'noise' starts at about 6am and goes on for about a half hour but then strangely all quietens down again until about 8 am when you can hear the town come to life. So charming.
Just a minute away is an organic coffee shop, El Fortin where we bought our morning Americano's. There is also a juice stand right down the path where you can get a fresh juice for 20 pesos!
What we also loved about the location was the quick hike to Los Muertos beach starting one block over.
We will be suggesting Debbie's home away from home to all our friends.
My friend and had a really great time here! The house is exactly as the pictures. Debbie is so sweet & gentle... Someday she gave us a ride! The breakfasts are perfect! Of course we'll stay here again. It's a good idea to use ear plugs for sleep, but it depends on the person ;)
Casa Nube was a great experience. The casa is close to town and the pool was perfect in the hot afternoon! Debbie was easy to work with and went out of her way to prepare food after I was sick on the trip. Thanks for a great week!

About the Host, Debbie
I love to meet new people, travel, read, cook, mono-ski, ride horses or motorcycles, SOP, yoga, hike, camp, raft, write, and learn new things. Sayulita is another world from the stress of "real" life. I love to take an early morning stroll on the beach. An evening of walking/talking and eating my way around town, from street tacos to 'the cake lady' is my favorite kind of dinner out. Currently I am working hard on my Spanish. I'm at the educated baby talk phase. Life motto: Just Do It (thought of this before Nike coined it by the way).
