Casa Vela is an exquisite luxury villa located on the North end of Sayulita overlooking the ocean, jungle and village. This unique house is a fusion of traditional Mexico and open-air beach living. The warm yellow walls and Saltillo tile floors invite you to sink in and relax with the ocean breeze and sounds of the crashing waves.
When you walk through the front door you are greeted by an expansive view of Sayulita’s bay and the beach that is only a short walk down the cobblestone street. The open palapa living room is the perfect place to relax with family and friends, lounge by the infinity pool with a cold cerveza, watch the game on the plasma screen TV, nap on the shaded outdoor sun bed, or shoot some pool on the championship pool table! You can check out the surf, watch the whales spout and the dolphins play from just about every room in the house as well.
The fully stocked kitchen with 15 ft. bar has everything you will need to create wonderful meals from the fresh local ingredients. Hand crafted copper sinks, Talavera tile and an antique oven add to the rustic charm of this beautiful kitchen. In the adjacent palapa dining area you will find a pounded copper table and built in gas barbeque where you can grill up and serve the “catch of the day” from the fisherman of the village. If you would like to arrive to a fully stocked pantry & fridge, send us a list and we will do the shopping before you arrive (for a small additional fee). At your request, a personal cook can be arranged to prepare Mexican delicacies for you.
From each bedroom you will awake from a restful night’s sleep to see the ocean stretching out in front of you. Comfortable mattresses and pillows, high quality linens and towels add to the luxury of this tropical retreat. We have also installed security safes for your security and peace of mind.
The entire house is adorned with hand-selected art, decorations and furnishings from throughout Mexico. Together, these elements create a fun and eclectic style that is the perfect complement to the amazing views from every room in the house. The thoughtfully laid out floor plan and incomparable ambiance is perfect for entertaining!
The separate upstairs casita with its own entrance greets you with colorful rustic floor tiles and Mexican folk art. Patio doors open up so that you can enjoy the incredible ocean view and breeze. Comfortable furniture, a fully equipped kitchen area and a shaded garden patio make this casita a perfect private hideaway.
The north end location of Casa Vela couldn’t be better, you are close enough to walk to town, yet far enough not to hear the late night music from the bars or (very) early morning crowing of the roosters! During your stay, you may choose to rent our ATV as a great way to explore Sayulita. We are certain that Casa Vela is everything you are looking for in a vacation house with the perfect mix of casual luxury.
Casa Vela can be rented as a 3, 4 or 5 bedroom villa.

|"What to say? You and your amazing "little" villa played host to the most wonderful family reunion we've had in more than 20 years, on the very special occasion of our wedding. Several Columbian and Venezuelans, hailing from California, Miami, London, Pamama and Caracas, all got to enjoy your marvelous place. And what a time we had! You made it impossible not to, in fact. Your attention to detail, the absolute beauty and meticulousness with which you created this incredible living space...truly we were amazed. And rest assured, we blessed your walls with much joy and laughter and life over the past seven days! Thank you and we are already making plans to see you again."

|"Casa Vela has made the joining of our families an absolutely exquisite experience! Your taste has the feel of something both unique and in touch with the culture of Mexico. Throughout the week it was widely proclaimed that we would return and or construct our own palace as you have. At times we wondered how it was possible for both of you to be so generous in letting your house be ours for a time. Collectively we want to thank you both for your attentiveness and willingness to make our week as perfect as it was. Thank you! p.s. the pool table was clutch!"
|"You couldn't have built a more amazing space. Attention to detail is a plus. So comfortable and perfect for our crew. Your home brings new meaning to "Relax". Our boys loved the pools and the simple conveniences from home (DVD)! Thank you, once again for a wonderful Sayulita experience. Hope to see you again next Thanksgiving!"

|"Thank you so much to Cassie and Mike for your absolute beautiful house and property. We had three families from Park City, Utah here to enjoy the sun, surf and seeing the kidlets play in the pool and waves. Our kids termed this as "Welcome to Paradise"! We loved the charm of this beach city and driving the kids in the golf cart is the highlight for them. Casa Vela will forever be a great memory for us all. Thank you again for everything! We love your Casa Vela!"

|"Thank you for creating such a stunningly beautiful home. From the first moment we stepped inside and took in the stunning panarama of Sayulita and the ocean to the day we left, we enjoyed every minute at Casa Vela. No one wanted to venture beyond Casa Vela for the first 2 days we were here! We appreciate the exquisite furnishings, the fine attention to detail and the soothing sounds of the waves and your fountain. You have created a very special refuge. Casa Vela also is very conducive to family gatherings and we enjoyed making meals here, relaxing by the pool, playing pool. Each family member also enjoyed the privacy throughout. Casa Vela offers as well, wonderful, inviting and open family places.
Some of the favorites included the open air showers, evenings by candlelight, lounging by the pool, Chuy the cat, and of course enjoying the always beautiful vista from this magnificent setting. We also enjoyed and appreciate how friendly and helpful both of you were and were grateful for the helpful tips you offered about Sayulita which helped make our vacation even better."
