About this listing

One bedroom with private bath in a shared home in Villas del Palmar, a friendly beachfront community on Sayulita's north beach. Close to everything, but just far enough away for some peace and tranquility. Beautiful beachfront swimming pool and palapa area.

The space

You can be out the door with your toes in the sand, paddling out to the left surf break, or just soaking up some sun, in less than one minute. You really can't ask for a better location.

Guest access

Guests can share the kitchen/dining area and the upstairs terrace with myself and the other guest(s). Hammock and recliner chair available for relaxing and taking in the view.

Interaction with guests

I've been living here full-time for 10 years and am always around and happy to help you enjoy your stay. I am full of good suggestions for activities, restaurants, and all the amazing things Sayulita has to offer. I would be happy to help you plan any activities (tours to the Marieta Islands,fishing, jungle treks, surf lessons/rentals, etc.) I have a great Kangen water filter/alkalizer for drinking water. No need to buy any bottled water around here. Just bring a nice refillable bottle if you like.

Other things to note

ARRIVAL INFO AND TIPS: Thanks for booking with us. Here are a few tips for your trip.

Airport transportation: Sayulita is easily accessible from the Puerto Vallarta airport by taxi or bus. A taxi takes about 45-50 minutes to get to Sayulita. A normal airport cab takes up to 4 people and costs about $60-$70usd. I can also arrange a shuttle for you. Our drivers have large, comfortable, 8 person suburbans and charge $140usd for the round-trip, taking you back to the airport at the end of your stay. They also have a larger van for up to 10 people for $180usd. They will stop at the grocery store for no extra charge if you want to stock up. We supply filtered drinking water, so there's no need to buy any at the store. If you'd like for me to arrange an airport shuttle for you, just send me your flight info and any details (i.e. # of people, child seats, surfboards, etc.).

The bus is also a great option. It costs $40pesos/person (about $2usd). To get to the bus stop walk out of the airport and turn to your left. Follow along the outside of the airport until you get to the pedestrian bridge which crosses over the highway. When you walk off the bridge on the other side, the bus stop is just 30 meters in front of you. You are looking for a mostly white bus with "Compostela" written in green on the side. It will say "Sayulita" in the windshield, along with a few of the other towns where it stops. It comes about every 20 minutes and takes about an hour. Sayulita is the last stop, so you don't have to worry about missing it.

Getting pesos at an ATM at the airport is recommended for the best exchange rate and lowest ATM fees.

We really appreciate good communication on your way here, so we can be ready and waiting for you when you arrive. Most foreign cell phones can dial our local Mexican cell phones directly. A text message works best, and I also have , but you're welcome to call me too. My number is . If it doesn't work directly like that, you can try starting with +521. And if it still doesn't work, ask your taxi driver to use his phone or ask him to call me.

Please let me know if you want help arranging anything to make your Sayulita vacation more enjoyable. I can arrange rentals of baby gear (cribs, high-chairs, etc.), golf-cart rentals, fishing/whale-watching/snorkeling trips, mountain or jungle hiking tours, bike tours, horse-back rides, etc.

See you soon.

This is a great little place in a great location. The pool area is great with plenty of lounge chairs and nice gazebo for shade. You are right on the beach and within easy walking distance to town. The host made check in simple and easy. I would stay here again anytime.

This place is all about the best location...you wake up to the sound of the surf, but in 3-5 minutes you are in town. It is safe and open and beautiful. I would absolutely recommend this place for its awesome location, access to the pool, beach and town. There is not a ton of privacy if that's what you are looking for, but Eric is so respectful and welcoming and cool to hang out with.

Eric is an excellent host. He was there whenever we needed anything and was so generous. The location can't be beat. There was a nice pool right outside the house - perfect for kids. It was a great option to take a break or change of pace from the beach. The beach outside the place is beautiful, but there is better swimming and surfing further south. The beach here is a little rocky, and the undertow is fierce. But it is still so nice to hear the surf from your room and walk out and put your feet in the sand in minutes. Just outside the the gate are a few really good restaurants, and there are plenty of produce stands and shops where you can stock up and cook quick meals in the kitchen. While the kitchen is shared, we felt like we had the place to ourselves. We loved our stay here and would love to come back. Easy to get to all the things you want to do and also have a quiet spot to rest and relax out of the sun.

Eric was a very kind, gracious host. He was very helpful, with great tips about where to eat and what to do and see while on our vacation. He even offered my son a remedy for an upset stomach on our last day. His place is neat and clean, perfect for our stay. The location is amazing! Two restaurants right outside, close to town square, right on the beach. And very close to the great pool. I can't say enough great things about Eric and his place and I'm looking forward to staying there again in the future!

Host was fantastic, full of information. Price was high for what the room is. Room is basic bed, bathroom very small and didn't feel very clean. Come with no toiletries, towels only. Location is best part. This is small gated community right on the beach with a nice pool area. Town is small and wonderful. Rent a golf cart to see the area. Thanks!

This is a great location for beach access and is a comfortable shared home set up. Erick was very accessible and offered good suggestions and advice when asked. The kitchen is open air, refrigerator (refrigerator was working, but not very modern) and use of kitchen are shared space as well. It all worked well for us, but might not be easy for people looking for a private space. Pool and loungers were a good addition to the beach!

Eric was a super warm and welcoming host, the kind of guy you'd want to grab beers with in your down time. The place was exactly as described, and the pictures don't do this spot justice! :) I'll definitely be bugging Eric soon to let me come back!

I grew up just outside of New York City, went to college in Albany, NY, and moved out to Crested Butte, Colorado to be a "ski bum" at the age of 23. After 15 years of "ski bumming" and building houses, working in construction, etc., I moved down here to Sayulita, Mexico, a magical beach pueblo. I do some property management, but mostly like to focus on surfing, yoga, and playing guitar.
