Charming hilltop home in the heart of Sayulita’s magic—Casa Naranjas gives you affordable style and comfort at one of the best locations in town.
WiFi throughout house and terraces. AC available for small extra fee.
Follow the winding stairs to this secluded oasis, surrounded by mango trees and lush palms, nestled next to some of Sayulita’s most exclusive homes. You’re in your own private world, but close to all the lively magic of Sayulita. Playa Sayulita, the town’s popular expansive beach, is two blocks down the hill to the left. In the other direction, distinctive galleries and organic coffee shops line the three-minute walk to the bustling town plaza.
Back home at Casa Naranjas, relax in the living and dining areas on the private veranda that wraps around the house, sitting under the rustic palapa (palm-thatched) shade roof, surrounded by greenery. You can also wash off after a day at the beach in the outdoor shower at the back of the terrace. Or chill out by swinging in the hammock—a favorite siesta spot.
The house was recently redecorated, combining classic “old Mexico” tilework, brick, and ironwork and contemporary touches. The open-air living area features two daybed couches for lounging and conversation, a convenient kitchen with countertop island that seats four, and brick archways over ironwork doors and windows that open to the tropical air and greenery around the house. Or you can retreat to the bedrooms, where AC is available on request, and sound-insulating windows add tranquility. The master bedroom features a pillow top king bed, the “mermaid” bedroom has two twin beds (which can also be made up as a king, and also have pillow tops). Plumbing and electricity have recently been upgraded to make your stay comfortable and convenient. Throughout, you’ll find charming pieces of local art and handicrafts.
Adding to the gracious indoor/outdoor living at Casa Naranjas, there’s a large terrace on the rooftop, complete with palm garden. There you'll find a romantic palapa-covered sitting area for hanging out in the shade, an umbrella-covered bistro table and chairs for rooftop dining, and chaise lounges for sunbathing. From here, you’ll get a closer look at the stately guamuchil tree that highlights the landscaping, a tree that provides sanctuary for the endangered green iguanas you can sometime spy from the roof.
A perfect destination for a couple, family, or group of friends vacationing in Sayulita, one of Mexico's select "Pueblos Magicos".
Why we love Sayulita:
Sayulita is a magical town—originally a quaint fishing village it has become a popular vacation destination for families, surfers and sun worshippers, wedding groups, yoga enthusiasts, and travelers from around the world. The town retains its village charm—caballeros on horseback can be seen riding down the main streets at times, mariachi bands often serenade passersby, the bell in the church tower on the central plaza rings regularly, and the handiwork of local artisans is everywhere to be enjoyed. The townfolk still celebrate Mexican holidays and traditional celebrations, often with exuberant processions and lively marching bands.
Added to this original charm, Sayulita is now bustling with a vibrant international expat culture, including folks from the U.S., Canada, Germany, France, Italy and more. The influx of young people from around the world keep the town active with what’s new and hip. An international blend of shops, restaurants, galleries, tours, spa services, and sports adventure opportunities line the streets, and the town boasts a dynamic night life. At times, there are drum circles or film festivals on the beach at night, and music festivals in the main square. Particularly on holidays, you can hear music late into the night.
You can relax by getting a massage on the beach, or by soaking in the waves, or sipping one of the famous Sayulita margaritas while you watch the sunset from your lounge chair. But in addition to the opportunities for R & R, when you’re planning a trip to Sayulita you should also prepare for some lively fun!

Casa Naranjas is the perfect vacation spot--close to the action, but a place to get away from it all too.
