** Due to a last minute cancellation our lovely, best view Casa Higuera is available at a special discounted rate of $170/night from May 26th - June 16th! **

When you enter Casa Higuera you will be over-taken by the panoramic views of the beach, bay and village. Designed in the spirit of indoor-outdoor living, the whole front of the casa opens through sliding doors onto an expansive, 45-foot long patio bringing coastal Mexico right to your doorstep.

Casa Higuera contains two private bedroom/bathroom suites (each with a king-size bed) and an additional half-bath off the living room. The couches in the living room can also sleep two additional guests. You can cook all your meals in the spacious, fully equipped Mexican kitchen and dine alfresco under our huge thatched palapa roof on the front patio, or in the indoor dining room. While sitting on our large L-shaped couches you can take in the view while enjoying our large collection of Mexican art books. Our house is built with traditional and contemporary Mexican architectural design elements – including palapas, Spanish arches, and hand-painted Mexican Talavera tile. They are attractively decorated with arts and crafts we have collected from our travels all over Mexico. Casa Higuera also has a shaded tropical garden courtyard that sits under the canopy of a 400-year-old Higuera tree.

What sets Casa Higuera/Casa Sofia apart are their beachfront location, gorgeous ocean views, and spacious and attractive design. Our highly coveted southside location on Sayulita’s best hill overlooks the bay and is just steps away from both beach and village.

Amazing Casa Higuera

  • 5 of 5

The moment we saw the Casa Higuera just took our breath away. The view from the terrace was so beautiful. We had 3 large terrace doors and the one off our bedroom was wonderful woke to see the sun rise, stars at night. We had our breakfast and lunch everyday on the terrace. The pool was really nice to relax and just to cool off. Then head down the path to the beach. Then for dinner we would go down the other path and stairs to the square in Sayulita. So many great restaurants food was really good. Would recommend this place and Sayulita a great vacation. Marta and Martin very helpful as well.

My high expectations were exceeded

  • 5 of 5

Casa Higuera proved to exceed my high expectations, which were based on consistently positive traveller reviews. The location is well appointed both in proximity to the beach (91 steps from Casita 3) and town (2 minutes). The sound of crashing waves kept us sleeping all eve and calm in our spirit for the two week stay. We went with our 9 year-old as a first trip to Mexico and Casa Higuera facilitated a safe, luxury (pool, landscape, cleanliness, view) and environmental (birdsong, geckos, iguana and interesting insect sightings) spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped for meal-making and the filtered water was replenished in a timely manner. In truth, we had a few tears when it was time to go. We would return in a heartbeat.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Casa Higuera with our two children. The views are incredible and the house is beautifully furnished. The location is amazing too. Direct access on to the beach and one minute into town. No need for a car. The pool is a real bonus too. No need to leave the property some days. It was super clean and the gardens are beautifully maintained too. The staff and owners are great. We can't wait to go back.

Excellent lodging in Sayulita

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Casa Higuera for five years, at Thanksgiving week, now. It is the best property out there. It sits on a hill at south end of town (not crowded), with panoramic ocean views. The houses and casitas are large and beautifully furnished. We've tried them all and cannot think of an improvement to recommend. They all have ocean views and a common pool is shared by all. It's quiet and a super close walk to the beach (down a set of stairs) or to town (down a different set of stairs). You are close to all, but have your privacy. The decor and ambiance is top notch! Highly recommend.

Wow! a fabulous break from "real" life

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 (two adults, one teen) stayed in Casa Higuera for a week recently - and our entire experience was magical from beginning to end.

Everything was as described, but BETTER. We loved the casa itself - from location (above the crowds but easy access to town and beach), to design and furnishings (highly functional indoor/outdoor and LOVELY - with a touch of the whimsical; be sure to look for the unexpected football helmet).....the kitchen (well equipped and laid out so our foodie family could comfortably prepare meals together) and last but certainly not least THE VIEW!!!.

Swimming in the pool in the afternoon, walking through the garden down to the beach, playing board games together in the evening, heading into town for a meal, or groceries - it was all effortless, and such a wonderful break from our "normal" life.

Working with the owner/manager was super easy - and every recommendation he made (from car service to boat captains) worked out great.

Beautiful house with fantastic ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Hi Aaron,

I wanted to thank you for our staying at Casa Higuera. We all had a fantastic time in beautiful Sayulita!

We felt at home, made friends and spent an amazing time at the beach.

The girls loved Rubia who spent a great time at the house with us ( we have two cats) and was good at letting the girls know when she did not wanted attention. :)

My husband and I had the chance to reconnect with nature and melt the stress away.

We hope to visit again soon!
