About this listing

Stunning ocean-view studio loft in modern property located in one of the premier locations, close to fantastic restaurants, shopping, surfing or just sitting at cafes for people watching. Yet the property is just far enough away and totally private.

The space

Eat Tacos in the village, Surf the warm water, Enjoy a drink on the beach, Shop the weekly market, Hike through the jungle, Watch the mother whales teaching the young ones how to breach, Practice your Spanish and definitely have a watermelon popsicle. It's easy to watch the ocean for hours. There is amazing bird watching from the house: the little green parrots, the Black-throated Magpie Jays, Macaws and even Chachalacas ( if you never see one, you'll definitely hear it); these are a few of the 336 species living in the area. Let us arrange for an incredible whale watching tour from December until early March. The tour is led by a research oceanographer who follows their migration patterns up and down the North American coast and knows every whale's name by sight. Hike through the jungle to secluded beaches and picnic before jumping into the surf.

The home was designed by a well known Mexican architect in true contemporary style using concrete and entire walls of glass with wonderful inside/outside living areas. Every individual detail was carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the unique and comfortable design, such as the double shower with ocean views, honed granite counters, and custom made furniture. The king sized beds feature 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, and makes a perfect spot to relax and watch one of the 300 DVD titles in the media library. If you can't completely leave the outside world behind, there is WIFI throughout.

It's just a 10 minute walk to both the plaza and the beach but returning home you'll have a very steep hill for the last block so give yourself a couple of extra minutes for that:)

- The steps along the wall, into the loft, were built without the safety of children in mind. This architectural element might also be disconcerting for older adults.

A car isn't necessary but lots of folks do prefer to have a car or rent a golf cart while at the house. You can always get a $5 taxi to the house, day or night... they are waiting on the plaza. Ask us to help arrange transportation from the airport or we really like Gecko Car rental, (URL HIDDEN) and Europcar, (URL HIDDEN) During the summer months, roads can get slippery in the rain, so golf carts or 4-wheel drive are best. For golf carts, our renters really like Pacific Coast Golf Carts, Gabe Fernandez

I understand my responsibilities as occupant and accept financial burden for any damages to the property caused by me or any member of my party. By signing below, I agree to pay the owners for repairs in the event damages are caused by us during our stay, and I agree to pay replacement value for any items which are broken during my stay. The owners are not responsible for accidents or injuries to guests or for loss of money, jewelry or other valuables during their stay. The owners are not responsible for any interruption in electrical service, as this may happen from time to time. While the owners make every effort to ensure that the guests' stay is enjoyable, the owners are not responsible for disturbances beyond their control including, but not limited to, town festivities, construction noise, early morning roosters and tropical storms.

Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the house.

All guests agree to keep excessive noise to a minimum and be aware and respectful of the neighbors. If you are staying in the main house while the guest unit is occupied by someone else or vice versa, please be considerate of the other people's enjoyment. Loud noise or music is not permitted after 10pm. Under no circumstances may any parties or events take place at the house. The owners take great care to make the house a relaxing place to enjoy while visiting, so to ensure the overall quality and appearance of the property these policies are strictly enforced.

The maximum number of overnight guests allowed is the number of people stated on the reservation. Any increase must be approved prior to arrival and no more than the maximum occupancy for the property will be allowed. No guest may assign this agreement or sublet use of any part of the house.

Check-in is anytime after 4pm, however the owners may be able to accommodate earlier arrivals. As soon as possible, please confirm with the owners your flight arrival and departure info and the time you would like to be met at the property, and unless you notify us otherwise, someone will be on time to let you inside and hand over the keys.

Check-out is at noon. All keys should be returned before leaving. Guests agree to pay $50 for each set of keys not returned. Inside the guest binder you will find an easy-to-follow list for checking out. Following these guidelines and leaving the house in the same condition as upon arrival will ensure a full refund of the security deposit.

Owner or owner's agent will have the right to show the premises to prospective clients with 24 hour notice to Renter at Renter's convenience. The owner or owner's agent also has the right to inspect the premises at anytime if there is reasonable cause to believe the Renter or any other person is misusing or damaging the premises or furnishings therein.

I (the Renter) recognize that vacationing at a beach town in Mexico is inherently different than living in or vacationing in the United States or Canada. Accidents may occur for a variety of reasons including but not limited to swimming pools without fences or lifeguards, beaches without lifeguards or swimming danger warnings, bars which will serve liquor to anyone who orders (regardless of age), balconies, windows and stairways without fall protection devices, lack of smooth roads and sidewalks, vacationers' ability to over-indulge and become careless, as well as different codes, laws and traditions for construction, activities and safety, and many other conditions.

I (the Renter) am aware of the risks and I take responsibility for all damages to myself and any member of my party, including those who accompany me or visit any member of my party in the complex. I expressly release from liability all individual owners and landlords, and all other renters and/or occupants of the house I am renting, and owners of other houses in the complexes in and around the location where this rental is located, as well as any agent of the houses, for any damage to me or any member of my party for any reason. I further agree to hold harmless all individual owners and landlords and agents of this rental, for any and all claims arising as a result of my rental of house(s) or property. That is, during the term of my rental I agree to accept full legal responsibility for all damages to myself and to all members of my party and to all guests of myself and members of my party.

I understand that this waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law, and agree that if any portion is held invalid, the remainder of the waiver will continue to be in full legal force and effect. I further agree that the venue for any legal proceedings shall be via arbitration in the state of Nayarit, Mexico, and in no other venue.

I affirm that I am of legal age and freely signing this agreement. I have read this form as well as the rules of occupancy, and fully understand that by signing this form, I am giving up legal rights and/or remedies which may be available to me for the negligence of the owner(s), landlord(s) or other agents or parties listed above.

This little studio is surprisingly big. And the view is spectacular. It gives you just the right amount of space for two and the bathroom is pretty sexy. Every morning I would open up all the windows and here the surf. This place has everything you need to cook at home or cut up some tropical fruit. Well equipped and fast reliable wifi. Felipe is very helpful and will help you out with anything you may need. I recommend this place 100%. It's a hidden gem. Thank you Dale.

Exceptional architecture and design. It's a modern minimalist oasis of peace with breathtaking views of a legendary surf break, with enough distance from town to buffer you from its nonstop frenetic energy.

The studio loft is stunning, the architecture is amazing and the space is open, airy and cool. The design furnishing is contemporary and tasteful. Although there is no oven, the kitchen is certainly adequate for full self catering. Although the food in the town is amazing, so certainly recommend getting out. The apartment is really well placed, out of the centre of town in a quite, friendly neighbourhood on the top of a hill with stunning views. It is a 10 minute walk into the town, a steep hill to walk up, but keeps you fit and there are cheap taxis back if you've overdone the tacos and tequila! You cannot fail to have a great stay here if you like well designed interior spaces and architecture as this really is what makes the loft such a gem (and same goes for the main house if in a larger group, we've stayed in both)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dale's airbnb. The location, although about a 7min pleasant walk from the main part of town, offers great views of the ocean. The hill leading up to the house is great exercise and not overly difficult. We never felt the need to obtain a golf cart as an assist. The architecture of the place is open and airy. Windows left open provide access to gentle breezes and air conditioning is available if the day is too warm. Overall a great experience. Dale also has trusted staff which are quite helpful during your stay.

We live most of the time in California and love to share our home with Sayulita visitors. Please don't hesitate to ask us about Sayulita or the Puerto Vallarta area.
