About the property

'Check out our Video' You can find it if you scroll to the right after the last picture above.

Built in 2010, the Barefoot House is an excellent value for your Sayulita vacation! It has a lovely, quiet location atop Gringo Hill; just an 8 minute walk to the plaza and 2 more minutes to the beach. Sunsets are stunning and the views of 'Monkey Mountain' and the Sayulita jungle are simply gorgeous. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sleeping loft, it is perfect for a family or two couples. It can sleep 4-6.

Barefoot House boasts a large, salt water, solar heated pool with a shallow 'splash zone' for the kiddies. If you're not familiar with salt water pools, they are a luxurious alternative to traditional chlorine pools. They use low levels of salt to 'chlorinate' and maintain the PH of the pool. Without harsh chemicals the pool water leaves skin silky smooth and doesn't sting kiddie eyes.

The patio furniture is perfect for soaking up the rays or whiling away the lazy days under the shade of the pergola. The property is tastefully landscaped with tropical foliage and fruit trees. It has a delightful outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach or showering under the night sky bright with stars. Simply dreamy.

The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living room and has a 6 burner gas stove, a full size fridge/freezer with ice maker, and even a dishwasher! (A rare treat in these parts.) There is a whole house water purification system allowing our guests to drink the water from any tap in the house. The dining table can seat up to six and the kitchen bar has seating for four more. There is a flat screen TV with DVD player for playing movies as well as an XBOX game system with games. There is a portable BOSE sound system to use with your device. We have a small assortment of movies, books, games, and kids' toys.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and fabulous pillows. Two sets of hand crafted French doors open to the pool. The master bath has gorgeous Parota wood counter tops, dual sinks, and a custom rock shower with rain head.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed, as well as a sleeping loft with an additional queen bed. The sleeping loft is ideal for kids (or limber adults). The second bedroom has a private bath with a stunning rock shower and rain head. The two couches in the living room can double as twin beds (although one is shorter than a normal twin - again, perfect kid size). Both bedrooms and the living room have their own air conditioning units with remote control. Each bedroom has a safe that will fit your laptop.

Barefoot House in Sayulita is equipped with a small assortment of beach gear available to our guests including beach towels & chairs. We hope that you'll be able to 'unplug' as much as possible while on vacation, but we do have Wi-Fi available to our guests.

We're super excited to announce that the Barefoot House is on the move toward becoming Green! We recently added an extensive rooftop solar system that helps to offset our carbon 'barefoot' print.

If you are interested, our 6 seater golf cart is available for rent for an additional $60 per night. This is a lovely mode of transportation around town, especially when lugging groceries from the Farmers Market and tired kiddos.

Wherever you decide to stay, we hope that you enjoy Sayulita as much as we do.

Saludos,

The Stewart Family

About Heather Stewart

We're the Stewart Family - Dave, Heather, Cole, Emerson, Eve and Soleil. We live on the Central Coast of California. We own a small business and we try to live a lifestyle that allows us to visit Sayulita as often as possible. In 2009 and 2010 we spent 6 months living in Sayulita. The kids went to school at the public schools in town, and we built the 'Barefoot House'. We had the time of our lives. We surfed and ate fish tacos to our hearts' content. We hope to live there again someday. But, in the meantime, we are offering our cozy casita as a vacation rental.

Heather Stewart purchased this house in 2010

Why Heather Stewart chose Sayulita

We bought our 'little piece of paradise' in March of 1998 when our oldest (now almost 19) was just a baby. We visited a few times after that and then got busy with life. You know how that goes. Four kids and 10 years later we came for a visit and remembered just how special Sayulita is. We made plans to return for a 'cultural exchange' and to build our little casita on the hill. In 2009-2010, we spent 6 months in Sayulita and oversaw the building of our bungalow that we affectionately coined 'The Barefoot House'. You'll have to visit to find out how it got its name. Hint: You'll love the salt water pool.

What makes this house unique

We like to think our house is rather cozy. The beds are plush and beautiful with lots of pillows. Since we were here during the construction we were able to add a lot of personal touches that make the house homey. Also, since we built the house to accommodate our family it is equipped with comforts like a dishwasher, full size fridge with ice maker (heavenly), and a whole house drinking water system so the kids can brush their teeth with no worries. These are really nice features when traveling with kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave,

We would love to head back to your little piece of heaven in Sayulita 4/12-20 (we'd actually been planning on Feb 15-23 but switched dates since you are already booked - we love your place...and I almost never go back to the same place twice so that says a lot). Please pencil us in if it hasn't booked since I looked at the calendar.

Beautiful, comfortable and relaxing place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved vacationing in the Barefoot House for a week. The saltwater pool was THE best thing to wake up to and come home to, with iguanas, birds, butterflies and fireflies to be enjoyed all around. The patio was wonderful for morning coffee and sunset margaritas. The house was beautifully designed and decorated, and stocked with everything we needed, from food prep to beach trips. We had a totally smooth experience with the recommended driving service, and a stop at the big grocery store before arriving to Sayulita. Nancy gave great recommendations for eating out, and her communication with the cleaning service and drivers was great. Our family of four loved our week in Sayulita!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sara and Family, for your kind words. I'm glad you had an amazing time at the Barefoot House and in Sayulita! Aren't the fireflies simply magical? We only get them in the summertime. Such a treat. You're welcome back at the Barefoot House anytime. ~Heather and the Barefoot Fam

Loved Barefoot House

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Sayulita, so no points of reference, however, we are repeated VRBO users and I have to say, we loved barefoot house! The house is simple, confortable and the amenities are great, it has everything you need. Having a pool is always great! If we ever come back to Sayulita, we'll definitely book this place, highly recommended.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Barefoot House is clean, comfortable and provides a nice indoor/outdoor living experience. The staff (Pedro the gardener, Jolie the housekeeper, as well as the pool guy...didn't catch his name) did a great job maintaining the property during our stay. The pool area is great. Lots of wildlife in the surrounding jungle (iguanas, chachalacas, opossum...even saw a tejon or "Mexican raccoon" in a neighborhood tree). Overall a great place to stay for a small family or two adult couples.

A wonderful private oasis in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. All the small details are what made us pick this home and I'm so glad we did. Sure, there's a gorgeous pool, large spacious bedrooms and air con. You'll find that at many of the casas in Sayulita. What sets The Barefoot House apart is all the little things....the drinkable water was a blessing ( more so if you have kids I would imagine), the heated pool means the water was always enjoyable, it's a bit further from the town center so it was so private and peaceful, the kitchen is fully stocked, (there's a plug in lime/orange juicer which was great for margaritas....a blender, knives that were sharp, plastic glassware for around the pool. I could go on and on...11/10

Thanks Heather, And Nancy & Herasmo who managed our visit!

Owner's Response: We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your family as our guests, Judith. You are welcome at the Barefoot House any time! We try hard to make sure the "small details" are in order, so I'm glad to hear that they were. Thanks! ~Heather
