Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico
Charming one-bedroom villa in Sayulita with sweeping views of the ocean and coastline.
Perched on a hill looking out over Sayulita and the Pacific, Casita Mimas is a special hideaway tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, yet within close walking distance to the beach and the center of town.
With an open-air palapa high above the hills and surrounded by lush tropical trees, this casita feels like a luxe adult treehouse. The design is modern sophistication meets Mexican chic. It’s a beautiful blend of polished concrete, rustic accents, and playful pops of bright color.
Casita Mimas has an open living space, gourmet kitchen, one large bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom, and a hot tub in the private garden space. Stays include daily maid service and a very helpful concierge.

Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico
Once a sleepy fishing village, Sayulita has transformed into a bustling little surf town, attracting ocean-loving gypsies and dreamers from around the globe. Located on Mexico’s Pacific coast, only a 45-minute drive from Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita is a world away from the all-inclusive mega resorts and bustling tourism scene of its neighboring resort city.
While Sayulita has received an increasing amount of attention over the past 10 years, the town has maintained a laid-back surf vibe, with thoughtful boutiques, great restaurants, and lots of character.
Fly into Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR), AKA Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz Airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. From the airport, it’s about a 50-minute drive to Casa Saturno (without traffic) in Sayulita. If you want to explore the areas outside of Sayulita on your trip we recommend renting a car at the airport, or a private driver can be arranged for transportation from/to the airport for $140 roundtrip.
