About the property

Perfect Setting Located On A Hill Right Above The Town Center

This is unit #1 of Casitas Del Mar (formerly Casa Tortuga). 1 BD 1 BA with a Palapa roof over the kitchen/dinning room. The bathroom is unique to Sayulita with a hand laid stone that can only be done by Mexican master stone masons. The bedroom closes off when it gets hot and air conditioning keep you cool and relaxed. The views of the village and beach are stunning. If you bring your binoculars you can see the whales pass by. You also have a jungle view looking out the bathroom porthole. This a one of a kind of a home.

About Greg Schilling

I retired to Mexico 10 years and decided to build a rental because I had the space.

Why Greg Schilling chose Nayarit

This property had such an awesome white water view, where you could see the surfers from your bedroom. If you bring binoculars you can whales watch from the veranda while sipping a margarita.

What makes this house unique

Palapa roof covering the kitchen/dinning area. Bathroom is done in hand quarried, hand laid stone. You can see the jungle out through the port hole of the shower but no one can see you The floor is vintage hand made tiles. The bedroom closes off so you can run the air conditioner when it gets hot. You get a great feeling of privacy in this spot. Very romantic.

Casa Tortuga is the best romantic get a way for anyone looking enjoy the sun and beach. Or you can just stay at the casa and watch the tortoises cruise around. The most amazing part of the Casa is the 20 foot hand laid stone wall that is in the bathroom. Also the palapa is a work of art.

absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

If this rental is available during your stay then I highly recommend it. I stayed here for 7 nights and it was amazing. It is very close to town and some days I made 4 trips back and forth without even hesitating.

There are a lot of roosters in Sayulita so pack ear plugs but otherwise enjoy every moment of the views and beauty of this rental and town!

Beautiful Place, Great Views, 5 min walk to town square

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! We loved the view, both from kitchen/lounge area and from the balcony. We could even see the ocean from the extremely comfortable bed. Kitchen was handy, and includes utensils, plates, etc. Bath and beach towels included as well as two large comfy pillows each. Our host was a very cool guy, easy to reach if we needed something, and quick to respond. For us, in our mid-30s, this place was perfect, but for those who aren't in the best shape or have mobility issues, this may not be the place for you...that hill is no joke! Course one can rent golf carts in Sayulita, in which case you have the equivalent of two flights of steps up to the unit. Highly recommended, this spot does not disappoint!

Nice clean place, great views, good value

  • 4 of 5

Greg was a great host and we love the property he has created. It's close enough to everything, but not right in the middle of all the hub bub. Be ready to walk up and down a steep hill to the place, but that hill keeps traffic away, and sits you up high in Sayulita so you have gorgeous views of the ocean, village, and cool breezes. All units have kitchenettes so you can do some of your own cooking if you like, or make a margarita and enjoy the views and breeze from your patio. Greg's turtles were a fun part of the stay, too. Watching their patterns, getting to feed and pet them, and just hanging out with them on your patio was fun. We would definitely stay with Greg again if our travels being us back to Sayulita.

Out of this world!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I spent a week at this delightful accom. The short walk to town and back was great exercise, however, could be problematic if have mobility issues. You do have the option to rent a vehicle. Absolutely LOVED the outdoor kitchen/living area. Greg was a great host who resolved an initial suite mix up quickly and professionally. Sayulita is a gem. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
