About this listing
Located 10-minutes from the beach and town, CASA VILIANO has two separate BD upstairs and can be rented as a one, two or -- combined with the casita -- three-BD, suited for 6 adults and 3 younger folks. 2-BD is OWNER-OCCUPIED 1/9 - 5/9. CASITA AVAIL.
CASA VILIANO is a very liveable home, where you can lounge by the pool by day, enjoy the sunset in the evening, and gaze at the stars and the water as you sip your nightcap before bed. The house has two and a half baths and an outdoor shower by the pool; a large, well-equipped kitchen; dining room; living room and three terraces. With two daybeds in the living room, the house sleeps six.
CASITA VILIANO is a charming apartment with a well-equipped kitchen and private terrace. It has a queen bed and twin-size day bed to comfortably sleep a family of three or two amigos who don't want to share a bed. The private terrace includes table and chairs to seat four and chaise lounges for reading or taking your siesta.
A door separates the casita terrace from the common stairwell for safety and privacy. Small dogs are also welcome.
Evening and night views from both Casa Viliano and the Casita are particularly spectacular, with the twinkling lights of the village below, and excellent views of Sayulita’s frequent fireworks displays.
High quality linens and towels. Beach towels, chairs and umbrellas are provided.
CASA VILIANO is located on the north end of town, just a 10-minute walk to the village and the beach. Most visitors will not need a car. During High Season, the owners offer free pick up and return to the airport.

Interaction with Guests
During High Season we live in the house. We are available to help guests with directions, recommendations, and assist with anything that comes up. The remainder of the year we have a house manager, Ramon Avila, who does check in and check out, and is available to assist with any issues that might arise.
We live up the street from a rustic, traditional Mexican neighborhood, at the top of a hill -- the street going up to the house is not a pristine, resort-like setting it is "real" Mexico. (I include this information because I want people to be happy when they are there and if this is not your cup of tea, our house is not the place for you.) The top of the hill is beautifully landscaped and there are two other rental homes at the top, all frequently rented as it is a safe, comfortable environment.
Sayulita is a walkable community and you can easily walk to the beach and the village from our house. If you wish to visit other towns, such as San Pancho, there's a bus at the foot of the hill, or taxis. At the times we are not there to pick you up, you can take a taxi or the bus to Sayulita from the Puerto Vallarta airport.
Other Things to Note
Cooks love our kitchens, which have high-quality pans, sharp knives and ample utensils. We provide unlimited purified water, toilet paper, paper towels, body wash, dishwashing detergent and Micodyne (for soaking produce), and kitchen sponges. Maid service is provided twice weekly. The unit is cleaned, sheets and towels are changed. We now have A/C in both the master bedroom and the casita, however, since electricity is very expensive in Mexico, there is a surcharge if you use the A/C to excess. Specifics will be in the rental agreement and email communication.
We will send a rental agreement once the reservation has been confirmed.
Our stay at Casa Villano was very pleasant. Sayulita is such a lovely little town and the amount of care and detail you taken into making our stay great was lovely. The driveway was a little steep, but was a great workout. Very authentic!
Donna's place is amazing. The house is beautifully set and I loved the authenticity of the neighbourhood. As others mentioned the walk is steep. My family enjoyed it. Doing the walk with a longboard is a little more challenging. I had rental car for going to distant surf spots. I recommend this place, it is a lovely experience but perhaps not a match for weaker travelers (it's quite open, not rustic, but open). Having three bathrooms for 4 people was GREAT:) I love the outdoor shower. I also loved all of the animals on the walk to the main town. it was a perfect distance.
The house is amazing! It is bigger than the photos make it seem and the dipping pool is divine! We loved cooking in the kitchen and eating out on the patio. The view of the town is great, and it is nice to be up out of town at the house because Sayulita is quite busy for being a small town.
Donna was very communacative and all her instructions were well written. The property manager Ramon is very easy to find from the bus station because it is basically across the street. He was very nice and showed us to the house.
Great trip! We definitely reccomened Donna's Casa Viliano. We didn't use the casita, but I am sure it is very nice, too.
The listing was very accurate and Donna called before we finalized our stay to really tell us all about her beautiful home in Sayulita Mexico. The home is wonderful, we had plenty of room for our son and daughter and their children. The walk to the beach and town was done multiple times each day as they are not far away from the activities at all. One of our better stays with Air BNB, thank you so much Donna and Cal. You have a wonderful place in Mexico.
We traveled as a group of 6 adults and 2 children and Casa Viliano and it's Casita met all our needs. Very spacious (bigger than it looks in the pictures) and well equipped with all you would need for a memorable stay. The bedrooms and casita are all very private allowing us space to get away for afternoon siestas or quiet time to read a book. The house felt very secure and we appreciated there was plenty of room to store our 6 surfboards. Located a short 5-10 min walk to the town square was perfect, allowing us to get away from the often late night music. Our host was very helpful via email and the house manager Ramon was very easy to deal with and addressed any requests or concerns we had promptly. Would stay at Casa Viliano again in a heartbeat.
We had an amazing time in Sayulita in Donna and Cal's Casita. They are very kind and friendly hosts who went the extra mile to make our trip special. The Casita was comfortable, well-equipped, and private. We always felt welcome to use the upper terrace with the pool and barbecue. Staying at the Casita was a great way to experience Sayulita and we look forward to returning in the future.
I stayed in the Casa with two friends, and I can't imagine a better place in all of Sayulita. The Casa was more spacious than it looks in the photos, and there were nooks and areas for people to gather or to find quiet time with a book. The walk to town and the beach are quick--the only caveat is that it is a little steep for anyone who has trouble getting around--but we all loved it. The house was very clean and a cleaning lady and landscaper came while we were there to keep everything in order. The house manager was very friendly and helpful.
I will definitely be back to the Case--maybe renting the casita as well and inviting more family.
What a magical week.
