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 360 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 infinity salt-water pool which seems to flow endlessly into the sea, or you might fall into one of the hammocks or chaise lounges just and read or nap. It is 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 a...nd 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 decks, patios, the garden 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 house is perfect for two couples, but the guest house and apartment can accommodate four others 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. Let us arrange transportation from the airport. 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. Please email with any questions.
The loft and Sayulita were great. Due to a flight cancelations we arrived a day late and Dale offered us a nights credit for a future stay. Rent a golf cart and enjoy. We wish we could of stayed longer!
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.
Casa Brava is simply stunning. We had a beautiful time there. High atop a hill overlooking Sayulita (and therefore quiet and peaceful) and the ocean (and distant whales), this place is so comfortable, so clean, so welcoming.
The attention to detail to provide an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Casa Brava is quite obvious - from both Dale the owner and Felipe the caretaker. Everything screams quality. Immaculate accommodation, extremely comfortable bed, fresh linens and towels, a very well put together guest book with all contact info, local sights, restaurant recommendations, tips, and an immense DVD collection (should one regretfully tire of looking out to sea or reading from the book collection :)) Dale was so responsive and caring in his correspondence both before and during our stay, ensuring that we were comfortable and happy there. Amazing service. Felipe the caretaker is a very dear man who warmly welcomed us, showed us around, gifted us with a bottle of Tequila (thank you Dale!!), and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
The vibe is indeed very very special at Casa Brava - a special place with special people. We will most definitely stay when we are next in Sayulita. Highly recommended.
Thank you Dale! Gracias Felipe!

Great place, well kept by friendly caretakers. I hope to stay there again soon!
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.
- 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
Casa Brava is an architectural beauty, designed with stunning views and attention to detail. My wife and I spent a week in the loft and found it beautiful, relaxing and quiet. Felipe, the groundskeeper, was very attentive and took good care of us. We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as Dale and he was absolutely lovely and went above and beyond - we can't thank him enough for his help and generosity! We can't imagine a more beautiful home to explore Sayulita from and we plan to come back one day!
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!
Beautiful house with a great view of Sayulita. Very much enjoyed our stay. Felipe (the right hand man at the property) was very helpful in every way.
Had a wedding in the area, but wanted to stay in Sayulita for a few days with my fiancé. Dale's place was spectacular and a perfect getaway to rest and relax for a few days. The views from the hill are great, the house caretaker, Felipe, is super friendly and helpful in setting you up for a great stay, and the house itself is one of the nicest in town in terms of design and build quality. It's about a 10 minute walk from the beach (and the hill to the house is very steep), but nice to be out of the town for quieter nights. Overall highly recommend this studio for a getaway in Sayulita, which is a fun little town.
