Casa Brava OceanView & Dipping Pool

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Calle Del Cielo, Sayulita, Mexico

The Space

Casa Brava Sayulita Large one bedroom private guest house with stunning ocean views and private dipping pool. Stunning modern home 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 to still offer 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, unspoiled jungle, and the quaint village of Sayulita. You might not want to leave the crystal clear water of the salt-water dipping pool which seems to flow endlessly into the sea, or you might fall into the hammock or just and read or nap. 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. Handcrafted custom Parota wood louvered doors open onto the covered patio, and pool area. Every individual detail was carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the unique and comfortable design, such as the onyx walls, 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 and unlimited calls to the United States and Canada.

The entire level is perfect for couple, but the main house and apartment can also be reserved to accommodate four other people for a total of eight. Full time English speaking manager will answer your questions and help with all of your needs We also provide housekeeping and laundry service. Want to have a private cook come in to prepare Mexican meals some of the time you are there? Or have a masseur set up a table on our terrace for an ocean view massage? These and even private yoga instruction can easily be arranged.

See our mention and reader comments in the May 8 NY Times Design Mag.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Casa Brava deserves 5 stars, without question.

    Beyond being convenient and spotless, it is a stunning architectural space with a magnificent view. The staff is friendly and available to answer / assist with any possible needs you may have, and the owner is responsive and accountable.

    My partner and I were blown away when we woke up our first morning and saw the view. The hammock and pool are awesome after a day at the beach (about a 10 minute walk from your door).

    Sayulita is a lovely town with tons of sincerity and charm. Good food, friendly people, fun surf.

    Honestly, Casa Brava is incredible. We couldn't have imagined a more romantic place to call home for five days. It far exceeded our wildest expectations.

  • We immediately fell in love with Sayulita and Casa Brava. The Guest House is airy, spacious, and modern, and provided a welcome respite after days spent on the beach in the hot sun.

    The views are spectacular, and there are a lot of little touches in the apartment to enhance your stay such as hammocks, ceiling fans, and the small dipping pool. Felipe and Susana will take good care of you and you will be greeted with a giant bottle of tequila and snacks.

    It is a bit of a journey to town/beaches due to the Casa's location at the top of a steep, windy, cobblestone road, but we did fine walking most of the time. We did tend to grab a taxi at the town plaza when returning to the house in the afternoon as that was the hottest time of day. We never regretted spending the 50 pesos on a cab!

    Overall, this is a very special place to stay in Sayulita and we would highly recommend it.

  • Dale was a fantastic host who was very accommodating. His house hand Filipe was wonderful - he was waiting for us to arrive, gave us a tour, and made himself available if we needed him (leaving us with his DVD collection).

    Casa Brava is a true architectural oasis that belongs in Dwell magazine. It was immaculately clean, spacious and had breath-taking views from every point of the house. Casa Brava is situated on quite the hill -- which both affords said great views and may require renting a car for some (steep trek if traveling by foot).

    Overall, incredible vacation! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Dale.

  • Dale's place was fantastic!! It was a perfect location, close enough to the beach but secluded enough we could (and did) spend almost an entire day at the pool. Yes, there is a hill but it wasn't so bad and was a welcome (minimal) workout after all the beers and tequila :) Also, in the booklet in the house, he recommended some fantastic remote beaches that were not only fun to get to but virtually private once we did!

    Oh! And Felipe and his wife were so nice and helpful. It was such a treat to have someone there to answer questions if we needed.

    I cannot recommend this place enough, we can't wait to come back!

  • Our stay at Casa Brava was wonderful. We were there for a week and both of us were really sad to leave our paradise vacation. Sayulita is a hip small beach town with great people, great restaurants, and beautiful beaches. But what made our trip to Sayulita over-the-top amazing was staying at Casa Brava (and meeting our lovely, generous, kind, and funny hosts)!

    Casa Brava is located just outside of the center of Sayulita, so, we had the best of both worlds: we got to walk into town and experience the lively atmosphere of Sayulita and then, head back to the house to experience the quiet serenity of the beautiful surrounding forest with a view of the beach from the living room.

    Our stay at Casa Brava was nothing short of perfect. It was truly one of the best vacations we’ve ever been on and we can’t wait to book our next trip here!

    We also want to give a big shout out to the hosts of Casa Brava. They were SO kind and generous and AMAZING, so, thank you so so SO much. You made our vacation so memorable and you all will always have a warm place in our hearts.

    Additional Items:

    - Water is triple purified! This was first trip I had to Mexico where I didn’t get sick!
    - Beautiful house!
    - Great location, short walk into to town
    - Beautiful views of the ocean and the town
    - Warm host and great professional staff
    - Dipping pool in our terrace is great after a long day in town and beaches!
    - Hammock to rest and relax during the warm nights

  • We loved our stay at Casa Brava! Dale is very hospitable and even had a bottle of tequila awaiting us in the kitchen. The dipping pool is so refreshing pre/post-beach time, and the views overlooking the little town of Sayulita are amazing. Dale also has an impressive catalogue of DVDs (hundreds!) available to borrow. We'd return to Casa Brava in a heartbeat!

    October 2013
  • This place is fantastic, large common areas, very attentive hosts and a fantastic view. I would highly recommend renting a car. The town is not really walking distance specially during hot days.
