1 Bedroom On A Small Hill With Warm Breezes Surrounded By Gardens
What makes this House unique
When you're at home you feel far away from the hub-bub of the center of town. The surrounding trees and greenery make it an oasis of calm. Yet, it is only a 7 minute walk to the plaza and main beach! Best of both worlds :)

Great shaded home! Close to beaches!
Tracey is a great host! Check-in and Check-out was very easy. She was also very helpful in terms of recommendations and direction to beaches!! Her home is shady and includes everything you need for your stay! Thank you Tracey!!! We enjoyed our stay it was awesome.
Awwww thanks Deborah! It was lovely having you two here - I hope to see you again!
The terrace is very sweet and the price is right!! Great location near Playa Los Muertos!
Really nice accommodations and super nice host!
Casa Solana is roomy and comfortable. The location is very good, but we encountered quite a bit of noise, especially from the donkey next door. Tracey was super helpful and friendly. One suggestion: a lightweight blanket for the bed would be a big improvement.
Hi Judith! Ahhh I know...those donkeys! They are a fairly new addition - well, perhaps they've been there a year now. Ear plugs for light sleepers are highly recommended, yes. Thanks for the tip about the lightweight blanket (instead of the duvet we provide) I see you found one of the two lighterweight animal-print blankets...gracias!
Oh yes, we will be back!!!
We just returned from an amazing two weeks at Casa Solana!! What a fabulous location and a beautiful spacious, clean casa!! It is a short walk into Sayulita and to the local beaches at Los Muertos and Carricitos. You are much closer to these beaches than anywhere else in Sayulita and I would highly recommend that you visit them, they are not to be missed!
We loved all the "local" residents as well, donkeys, mini pony, chickens, roosters and the "turkey" birds!! We loved the neighbourhood sounds and didn't ever mind waking up to it. Napping in the hammock in the afternoon was so much nicer than sleeping in late!! You can hear the sounds of Sayulita as you drift off to sleep at night but it wasn't noisy at all. After all, it was New Years and it is Mexico!! Tracey left us a lot of great information and suggestions, we took them all and tried everything. We also cooked at home and there was nothing missing. The filtered water was so awesome. Never had to worry about it! We enjoyed some amazing breakfasts at Ya Ya's just down the street. You have to check it out (Waffle with bananas, peanut butter, bacon and maple syrup was honestly one of the best things I have ever eaten!!).
I would have to say one of the highlights for us were Tracey's cats. They are so adorable and friendly. They were always there to greet us in the morning and whenever we returned during the day. They were an absolute delight and enjoyed afternoon naps as well!!
The property is so well maintained and very clean. We had a clean done after the first week and she did an amazing job. Having two options for patios to sit on was great. One had some sun in the morning, the other didn't. Afternoon naps were great with the bedroom doors wide open to enjoy the gentle breeze.
I would not hesitate to recommend Casa Solana to my friends and family and we are already talking about going back next year!! It was that great!! Thanks Tracey for a great holiday!!
We had a fabulous stay at Casa Solana. Everything was perfect for our liking. It's in a relatively quiet, residential location, the whole house is shaded by the surrounding trees which made our stay even without AC very comfortable just having the fans going. We spend a lot of time just relaxing out on the patio. The two best beaches, Los Muertos and Playa Carrecitos are just a short walk away, as is the town centre. Everything we needed from beach towels to a blender was there, the beds were very comfortable and the casa was clean on our arrival. Communication with Tracey the caretaker was spot on.
Perfect blend of convenience, value and quality!
So, it starts with Tracey. Tracey is the resident manager and she is awesome. Kind, sincere, and very available to address questions and recommend "best places for ___." The place itself: charming, super clean and well-presented, comfortable (great beds, much better than others in MX I have had to deal with), no issues with the tap water (go ahead, drink from the tap - yeeeeahh! we did, no problem!), and ceiling fans, lots of windows and the nice breeze keep it comfy. Water pressure fine, shower is good (no reason to over-shower if you go to the beach and swim in the ocean!). Did I mention that this casa is clean?? And plenty of room for a family of 3 or 4. Wifi? Fast and reliable! And in terms of noise, really it's very quiet compared to the places right in town. You do faintly hear the live music from the Plaza bars, but it wasn't anything that kept me awake. If I were trying to sleep at 1am right in town, yeah, totally another story. Whew. Yes, there's the occasional barking dog(s), and plenty roosters yelling at each other and making sure YOU know it's 6 (or 5) am, but hey, it's Mexico. Get over it. One especially awesome thing: location is within around 10 minutes walking distance of the Los Muertos beach. Love that beach! Way better than the main Sayulita beach. This beach is much more scenic, sincere and welcoming. And just the walk to/from is awesome. I am having serious withdrawals. What else - oh, the food in Sayulita, I thought I ate a lot, but I actually LOST weight! Must eat at: Mary's (get the fish bowl, huge & healthy! And their fish tacos are bomb!). Great burgers and bulldogs (cervezaritas) and margaritas at Monchi's. Also the combo platter at Carmelita's, and yes, do have breakfast at Choco Banana, But if you want to make your own breakfast at home, no problem, such as scrambled eggs and chorizo, buy it from the town carniceria (their chorizo is terrific, tons of flavor, not greasy, and not TOO spicy!). Then head right to the beach! Alas Blanca is the local mini-super of choice - great selection of everything, and affordable, and friendly folks!
If you carry-on your vacation stuffs, it's easy to take the local bus here from PVR, just 35 pesos/pax (as of now), 'bout an hour & 10 minutes bus ride, then walk to Casa Solana from the bus stop (around 15 mins walk).
I would stay at this place during the high season again ANYTIME! Great value. This rental is a no-brainer. I'll be back.
Awwwww thanks so much, Craig, for the marvellous review! It was lovely having you here!!
