Marcie was a great host and always was very quick to respond to any problems or questions we had. The accommodation was very sweet with a real authentic style to it. Close walk to the Main Street but also the restaurants around the corner were our favourite for our stay in Sayulita. As Australians we also enjoyed the friendly wildlife surrounding us, the iguanas put on a daily fantastic show!
Beautiful home. Could not have been in a better location. Close enough to town and beach, but just far enough away to get away from it all. Jorge was very helpful with suggestions about boats and such. Lovely view from the veranda of the trees and palms. Iguanas in the trees above. Pool clean and refreshing. I would recommend renting a golf cart. Worked out great getting back and forth to town and beaches without hassle. Medusa had the best fish tacos. Las Fortunas very good food in a peaceful setting. Would stay here again without question. Thank you Marcie!!
We had a very nice stay at Casita Siete Palms. When we arrived to Sayulita, access to the property was very convenient. The location is just close enough to the center of town, and just far enough away. The apartment is cozy, perfect for 2 people. If we end up back in Sayulita, we would definitely stay here again.
There are many options to choose from in Sayulita and Casita Siete Palmas is one of them that has it all dialed in.
Everything went smoothly. A/C was nice in both the bedroom and living room/kitchen. Bed was comfortable and on the firmer side, which we like. The shower is sorta outdoorsy between two sections of the casita, which gives a nice, natural feeling. But watch for mosquitoes, geckos, cockroaches and spiders. We did not see this as a negative because, hey, this is tropical Mexico and we're kind of in the jungle here. On that note, there are LARGE iguanas that climb the trees around the Casita and they're awesome to look at.
The small pool was great for a quick swim or a relaxing hang out... and we used it almost every day after our walk home from town. The walk is about 10-13 minutes to the center which makes it a very quiet place to be, but close enough to the action. Neighborhood is on the North side of town, which felt a little more upscale and very safe to walk home after dark.
Our vacation days in Casita Siete Palmas and in Sayulita where magnificent. The place was all we have anticipated it will be and more. We even extended our stay 1 more day. Marcie was very helpful with this and with all the questions we had.
The location was great, excellent view from the patio, very near the beach (1 block away) and in the part of town where all is calm and quiet.
I will definitely come back to Casita Siete Palmas in the future for more fun, sun and relaxation days.
When my family arrived there were no sheets or blankets for the couches. Our small children climbed in the bed (full size) and my husband and I slept on the uncomfortable rough green couches. I could feel every spring underneath my back. I have slept better backpacking on Mount Olympus. I was disappointed the following day, however the groundskeeper graciously had a key to the laundry room where we were able to find extra sheets and blankets. Jorge was not as empathetic, he responded with, "there is no reason for sheets and blankets, it is hot here.". I felt more support from people who spoke only Spanish. We were without air conditioning for two nights in the bedroom and were not compensated for lack of amenities. There were many cockroaches in the bedroom I moved outside for those who care. The bathroom is open to air and inbtween the kitchen and bedroom, with kids there is a lot of opening and closing doors. The iguana regurgitated leaves on the porch smells like poop, and it is imperative you clean up the poop because little kids step in it unawareingly.
For the positives, the view is fabulous, the pool is private and kid friendly. It is quiet and lovely to hear tropical birds. The walk to beach is a few minutes. Town is a bit further especially with kids. The native people are family oriented and warm and gentle.
I learned a new lesson, Don't have expectations even when the listing includes amenities. The experience is about the culture and beautiful, sincere people, not where or how you stay.
I am sorry to hear about your arrival and not having the extra beds made up for your children. I was happy to hear though that Jesus (our gardener) brought you sheets and blankets (?). As for the air conditioning it was simply out of our hands, the town experienced a strong rainstorm and the ENTIRE town was without electricity. Our property manager did make all the necessary calls to the electric company and electricity was restored that day! I immediately compensated you for a nights stay. As for the other claims of bugs or iguanas all I can say is that Sayulita is TROPICAL and surrounded by jungle, all the literature and pictures show the open air bathroom. I wish your accommodations could have matched the experience you had with the town people and culture of Sayulita.
Loved staying at Marcie's home! We've stayed in Sayulita many times before and the price is great for the location and pool. We really enjoyed how quiet the space was and walking to town every day.
We will be back!

Marcie & Mike Cavanagh own Casita Salate and manage Casita Siete Palmas and Casa Agua Azul. We moved permanently to Sayulita in 2006 from Northern California, USA. We both love Mexico and its deeply rooted culture. We look forward to making your trip to Sayulita a memorable one. Sayulita is rich in tourism but also rich in culture. If you look around town, on the beaches, and in local art galleries; you will see traditional folk art made by Sayulita's local artisans and Huichol people. Come stay in Sayulita for its beautiful mix of vacationers and local culture.
