Casa Alta Vista ~ Perfect Romantic Getaway

1 Bedroom     2.5  Bath     Sleeps 3     Availability

Casa Alta Vista sits on a family property called Cielo, which means sky or heaven, and we think of our property as the later as it always feels like we are in Heaven when we are there. Sunrise, sunset, moonrise, starry nights, morning light- Cielo is truly an amazing place regardless of which of the houses you are renting. While we are biased, we feel that the views of the beach and coastline from Cielo are uniquely special and that in a town that’s known for incredible views.

Casa Alta Vista, (is above and set-back from Mariposa) is surrounded with manicured palms and tropical gardens of hibiscus and bougainvillea and positioned on the hilltop overlooking the spectacular bay. Our houses face north so you have a stunning view of the beach and coastline from the house

Alta Vista is the perfect romantic getaway! The one bedroom house is very private, walled and one can easily sit for hours looking at the ocean, the birds, and the beautiful Mexican Coast. Alta Vista is “L” shaped and built around a patio and splash pool. The larger part of the “L” includes an open area with a wonderful living room/dining/kitchen area that opens out to a covered patio facing the ocean. To the right you look towards the pool area with amazing views of the surrounding area with lots of sun on this deck. In the back of the house is a private patio that has a fountain and sun off and on depending on the angle of the sun.

The bedroom/bathroom is on the other end of the “L” with doors that open on to the pool patio and ocean beyond. The bedroom has a queen-size bed with high quality sheets, feather pillows (there are foam pillows in the closet if you are allergic), excellent towels. The house has a well setup kitchen.

There is maid service 6 days a week, except holidays and Sundays, and you can arrange to have the maids make dinner made for you. The village is also filled with excellent restaurants, coffee shops and street food. There’s an iPod speaker in the living room as well as a Sony speaker that works on Blue Tooth. We have excellent wifi. The log on and password will be sent to you. There also an iron and hair dryer in the house bathroom.

To get to Casa Alta Vista, use the village plaza as your starting point. With the plaza on your left, go pass the plaza on Calle Revolucion and go one block to Calle Niños Heroes which angles off to the right. Go up the hill to the second right turn, Calle Bougainvilea, and go to the top of the hill, turn left, and you will see our entry gate with white columns. Cielo and #15 are on the left column and the 5 house names in Cielo are on the right.

Enter the driveway, take the few steps to the garden walkway and, at the inlaid butterfly, turn left and follow the path up through a garden, passing exotic flowering plants, large palms and lime trees. Across the garden to the right is the back of Casa Jardin, a two bedroom house. At the end of the walkway garden are stairs leading up to Casa Alta Vista and to the right is the gate for Casa Mariposa.

Assuming that you will leave the house during your stay, you can reach the beach and village, both just minutes away, either by going back to the butterfly and going left to steps down through the property on to the beach; follow sign to Carlitos. Or, by exiting the driveway and walking towards the village, you can either go straightish (not going the way you drove in), and you will end up on the neighborhood walkway we call Lombard St, as it winds down the hill to the village. Or you can walk down the road, the way you drove in and taking a left at the bottom of the road (Niños Heroes). All routes take about 5-10 minutes to get to the the plaza, depending on how fast you walk.

Regarding transportation: This info is from one of our customers and he uses Gekko to rent a car in Bucerias. They charges $350/week for a VW Jetta ($500 for small SUVs), insurance and airport taxi included. I think they do airport pickup and delivery. Of the 3 main golf carts outfits in Sayulita, 2 use electric, which aren’t powerful enough for the hills and charge $40/day; the third business are gas powered and they charges $50/day and $60 for the more powerful version; no insurance or airport pickup.

Have a great time!

“Love this place.  We have stayed here so many times that it feels like a second home.  Cap is the best!  We will definitely be back.”

“Amazing Place, the view was better than any pictures! Perfect location to walk everywhere and very safe.”

“Had the most incredible week here!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!”

“Our stay at Casa Alta Vista was fantastic! Stunning views from a gorgeous property, great owners, and super friendly staff. Loved the quiet location that was only a quick walk to downtown. We’ll definitely be back!”

“We had a lovely adventure at Casa Alta Vista.  The view from your house is amazing, the grounds were perfectly kept, and the staff was professional and extremely helpful.  We experienced 1 huge 6 hour thunderstorm which was terrifying and several smaller storms. One of the small storms had very strong winds which blew the patio cushions around the property and knocked some books off of a shelf.  We lost power twice.  We baked in high heat and humidity, we thanked God for the pool and the openness of the house which let a glorious breeze blow through.  We had a crazy, sweltering, wet and thoroughly perfect stay.  Missing it already, and can’t wait to return.”

“This was my fourth time in Sayulita and first time at Alta Vista. I didn’t think Sayulita could get better, but it did because of Alta Vista. I actually was thinking twice about posting a comment, because I want to keep this place to myself – it’s that nice! Shhhhhhhh… don’t tell too many people as they will want to stay there too.”

“What a view what a place. What a stay. Everything about this place was awesome.  Staff is great and if anything came up they were able to help quickly. Thanks again for making our homeymoon Un forgettable”

“We had an amazing honeymoon at Casa Alta Vista!!! The space was amazing, and super private, yet easy to get to. Thank you!!”

“So wonderful, can’t wait to return for another stay.”

“Our stay was absolutely amazing!! The house is perfection! Amazing views, nice and private. The dipping pool is so lovely and great for dips all day long!! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a private oasis. Love how close it is to town and walkable to all the beaches.”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Sayulita! Casa Alta Vista is one of the most beautiful places I’ve stayed in Mexico. The design, the comfort and the view are all perfect. It is like a honeymoon suite and a penthouse in one. A quick flight of stairs to the beach or a couple of blocks to town made everything easily accessible. Finally all the staff were incredibly helpful.  I hope we can come back!”

“Overall we had a wonderful visit.  Ramon (? was that his name?) was unfailingly helpful when minor help was needed.  The view can’t be bettered, and the appointments in the apartment were all one could ask for.”

“Fabulous.  Everything.  The views, architecture, artwork, books.  The people you have helping you at the house are lovely too – answered all our questions, were helpful and friendly.  Thank you for helping make this a perfect vacation.  Jim and Margaret Thompson”

“Beautiful home and views. With the small pool on the terrace, there was never a reason to leave! That said, the beach and restaurants were only steps away. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. All in all the BEST in Sayulita. I am looking forward to booking my next trip as soon as I can.”

“The house was beautiful and the staff incredibly attentive.  Could not have asked for anything better!”

“It was fabulous!! just like the owner!”

“FABULOUS!!  Absolutely an amazing house and owner and everything was PERFECT! Thank you so much!!”

“Beautiful home with spectacular views,  and an unbeatable location. We loved it and hope to return very soon.”

“My week at Alta Vista was wonderful. I loved the intimate tropical setting with the commanding views of the ocean and beach below. It was an easy walk to town and the beach for restaurants and sea and surf  time yet offered plenty of privacy when wanted. The house itself was charming and comfortable. All the amenities were available and made for a relaxing experience. Though I was there alone, I found it to be a very romantic setting and could envision myself falling asleep to the sound of the surf with a loved one in my arms!”

“Everything was perfect!  It was hard to go down to the beach sometimes because the view from the house was so good.  The pool is amazing and the privacy of the house from neighbors or other guests added that much more to the relaxing nature of the house and location.”

“What a beautiful home! what a gorgeous location! Wonderfully well-equipped for a very satisfying stay. Great owner and pleasant staff. My wife and I will return next year, sooner if we could.”

“We had a superb stay at Casa Alta Vista; it is such an unbelievably lovely house and view, and the support we received from staff was perfect.”

“We immensely enjoyed our stay at Alta Vista. The pictures cannot do the view or the apartment justice. There were days where we would have been happy just to stay up there and never go down into town. We had no issues with safety and security and slept with every window and door open without any concerns. Our only concern is how quickly can we get back to Sayulita! Thank you Cap for creating this little slice of heaven, we could not have been happier with our week there and we know we will see you again!”

“We really had the most wonderful stay at Casa Alta Vista. The view is breathtaking and everything is very comfortable. The pool and the breeze were refreshing. It is a true romantic getaway!”

“Beautiful view!  We spent many hours just on the deck spying on the people on the beach below :o)  We also loved the dipping pool on the deck.  It was truly a lifesaver when the humidity got too high.  Loved the decor and quaint feel of the house.”

“We enjoyed our stay so much! The house was amazing and we will be back!”

“This place is fantastic.  The view, the layout, the style of this casa are all grand.  Would like to see mosquito netting for the bed.  Other than that, perfect!”

“Great house with amazing views.  The backyard garden is so tranquil.  Small dipping pool is perfect to cool down or after the beach.”

“Alta Vista provided a unique perspective of beauty from every spot, angle, and time of the day.  Staying in such a well designed home was extremely pleasurable and peaceful.  Cap has created a work of art that I am grateful to have been able to enjoy.”

“House & view are wonderfull. Stayed at a couple of different places within Sayulita and by far Casa Alta Vista has one of the best views of the coast. Would not recommend going during the humid part of the year.  My partner & I would love to come back if a spot opens up during the spring months when the weather is not so humid. Overall wonderfull home.”

“Our visit in Sayulita was fantastic thanks to our wonderful stay at Casa Alta Vista!  We were excited to arrive to find everything exactly as we saw in pictures and described.  The view was phenomenal and the breezes were perfect.  The splash pool was a welcomed treat after walking up from town or the beach.  All the comforts of home and incredibly private.  We walked around many areas and felt Alta vista was the best!  Thank you for a wonderful trip – we will definitely be back!”

“I just have to emphasize that this is an absolutely gorgeous property! I feel very lucky to have found it. We had an amazing time staying here, much time was passed sitting out on the gigantic deck watching the surfers and the people on the beach. This property has superlative views of the town and beach (bring your binoculars). And I adored the lovely little lizards who chirped at us in the evening as they scurried across the walls. I have never stayed in Sayulita before but you likely can’t get much better than this for location and views, not to mention price. The place was private, impeccably clean and I loved having access to a full kitchen to prepare a small snack, make coffee, and, of course have access to water. It was our own private sanctuary for the week and we gushed about it every night – we could not get over how lovely the place was. It does not have air conditioning but with all the windows/screens and the fans you do not need it (even in June when we went and it is quite hot). I was initially concerned about the noise from the bars in the townsite but it was not an issue at all. We had the windows open all night, every night and were not disturbed at all by any noise – not even from people staying at the properties adjacent to Alta Visa. Thanks, Cap, for offering your gorgeous bit of “Cielo” for us to enjoy in Mexico. We will definitely be back. “

“It was a wonderful stay. I loved the beautiful view of the beach from Alta Vista.  After walking in town, it was nice to walk back to the place and know that it would be much cooler and wind blowing.  I enjoyed the green and full of plants patio.  It was nice to be sitting by the kitchen and feel like I was outside by opening all the glass doors.  The place is very well taken care of.  I enjoyed talking to Mr. Ramon and Ms. Magali.  She was never too busy to talk and always a big smile on her face.  Great vacation.  Thanks”

“Marivel and I had a wonderful stay. The view from the terrace is terrific. The house is warm and friendly. Ramon and the ladies who clean are gracious hosts. Blessings to all in Sayulita.”

” I finally found the perfect place to stay in Sayulita. I will search no further.”

“A lovely expereince on our second visit.”

“Fantastic home, view and location. When can we come back?!”

“Casa Alta Vista was like Heaven on Earth. Beautiful panoramic view, a comfortable bed which was important and the house staff were very friendly. Thank you for everything.”

“We loved the view and pool at Alta Vista! It was our hideaway while the beach is recovering from the Labor Day flood. Bring binoculars–there’s a lot of activity to observe. We also loved Jose Ramos’ transportation service. They are wonderful.”

“Simply the best vacation we have ever had. The house was perfect. The cross wind and splash pool were luxuries to come home to on a hot day. The view was stupendous. We will definitely come back.”

“Casa Alta Vista is amazing!  We were so happy that we got tired of smiling!  Truly loved our visit.  Already talking about booking our next stay. Thanks so much! Laura”

“Dear Cap, We stood there holding hands while over looking the ocean surf. Our bags were packed and it was time to say good bye to Sayulita. As the butterflies and pelicans passed by we left a blessing of love and gratitude floating on the breeze for Sayulita for being so welcoming, to Alta Vista for being an oasis at the top of 169 steps and to you for being such an angel  to create and share a home filled love and renewable energy. (for the soul and for the planet) Our two week vacation felt like one month. This in my mind is the highest achievement anyone can ask for or provide. I am renewed, refreshed and ready to engage back into my life’s purpose. we will be back…. o yes, we will be back. BIG LOVE & Bless the Planet, Reine & Darren”

“We’re returning customers, so obviously we love your pad. But, honestly, our experience this time wasn’t quite up to the standard we remember from our last visit. I’ll put my “improvements” comments below. I also wanted to let you know, for what it’s worth, that we had a pair of binoculars stolen. It is completely our responsibility. You warned us and we should have locked them up. We left the house for a couple of hours, and they were gone when we returned. It was a trip downer not because they were particularly valuable, but because they were my husband’s grandfather’s binoculars. We learned a lesson for sure.”

“Thanks Cap. It was beautiful as always. Alta Vista is a one-of-kind experience really! We liked the MP3 player you added and the wifi worked for most of the week this time. See you again sometime in the near future! Gracias, -Gabrielle”
