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.
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.
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.
We like to have fun, but with respect for everyone in the house as well as the other neighboring houses. Villas del Palmar has 22 houses with shared common areas including the large beautiful swimming pool and beachfront palapa area. We generally try to keep the noise down and the good energy flowing.

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.
