About this listing
Beautiful palapa covered casa in central Sayulita includes 1 bath with a walk in shower, and outdoor kitchen. Great ocean view .
Sayulita's Casa Tortuga is a brand new (completed 12/2013) casa with a very original design. The roof is made from palm fronds which allows the casa to breath.
The bathroom has a walk in shower and the kitchen is outside with a breath taking view.
Access is through the front door and a key box is on the right hand side of the door. Most rentals in Sayulita have a safe to deposit your valuables. I have one also.
Interaction with Guests
I have my own house on the property in Sayulita. It is separate. Casa Tortuga is very private not to mention romantic.
Casa Tortuga is located in the central part of Sayulita, up on a hill over looking the village and ocean.
You can get around Sayulita by foot. No need to rent a car unless you want to go out of the area. Sayulita Taxi's are always available to take you where ever you want.
Other Things to Note
I have 5 African dry land tortoises next to the casa. They roam about in their space. They will eat out of your hand. They are the only breed of this type in Sayulita

The Casa Tortuga was a beautiful place to stay in Sayulita the vista and interior is just as pictured, the space was very clean, and Greg was easy to get a hold of when we had questions about the Casa. My boyfriend and I were not at all familiar with Sayulita before our stay here and we wondered if we would be centrally located. Happy to report that we were! This place is a 2-3 block walk in to the town center and a short 2-3 block walk from the center to the beach. Though, the beautiful views come at the expense of climbing a pretty steep hill to and from the Casa. Going from the Casa is a steep slightly intimidating downhill walk but the climb back home was pretty challenging (and we are both in good shape)! A lot of people rent golf carts to zip around the town, especially in the heat, but the this was not an option for us. The incline of the hill made it too dangerous to take anything other than a car. Just a note that by the time we reached the top of the hill we were covered in sweat and really missing being able to cool off with some air conditioning.... The only drawback to our stay. Other than that aspect, we loved the oversize shower, the beautiful views, and how the space was so open to the outdoors. Greg was an amazing host and really concerned that we loved our stay. I really wanted to only say positive things about our stay but I wouldn't be leaving an honest review if I didn't mention the fact that the trek up hill was a bit of a bummer.
My sister and I loved everything about our stay at Casa Tortugas. The view was amazing and the unit was very cute and comfortable. There is no AC, but there are fans inside and on the balcony. The walk to town is very short, the perfect distance to everything! Greg is very helpful and even had his driver pick us up from the airport for a good price. We will definitely be back soon!
Greg was out of town for our stay but his assistant Jose treated us great and provided us wth everything needed. The place was clean and very quiet. The hill walking up is not as bad as they say and worth the view! Close enough to town and the beach we did not require a golf cart. We had a wonderful stay and would come back to Sayulita in a heartbeat!
Casa Tortuga was perfect. We fell in love with it immediately. Each morning we would wake to the birds singing and the beautiful view of the ocean. We even got to hand feed cactus leaves to Greg's turtles just outside our door. Greg was welcoming and very helpful with anything that we needed. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Sayulita.
Thank you Greg!
Really enjoyed our stay, Casa Tortuga is a great spot with a welcoming host!
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Tortuga. The house is set far enough up the hill that you have a great view of town and the coastline, yet only a short walk from the action. Would recommend.
Greg is an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed. The casita was clean and spacious, laid out nice as a perfect base camp for our week in Sayulita. Love the outdoor kitchen and patio. The location is incredible, literally a 5 minutes walk from downtown, but up on a hill and very private, so you can get away from the town and have time to yourself. Sayulita is loud at night, but unless you are out of town or in a neighboring area, there's really no avoiding that. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to rent in Sayulita.

About the Host, Greg
I retired to Mexico a few years ago and built 3 houses. I rent 2. Sayulita is the perfect place to de-stress. This is my favorite place in all of Mexico, so I moved here. The people are super friendly.
