Charming Casa Near Town and Hidden Beaches

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Casa Risa is a two bedroom home nestled in the South part of town near hidden beaches*, yet only an 8 minute walk (no hills) to Sayulita Plaza and 10 minutes to Sayulita Beach. Perfectly situated so everything is walkable but far enough away from the late night sounds of town.

The Casa has a tranquil beach vibe and offers an open floor plan with high arched ceilings. Risa also has a covered patio surrounded by a garden where you can lounge in a hammock. The living room has 3 large built-in sofas to cuddle up on and watch Netflix when you are not at the beach or touring around town. The bathroom boasts a beautiful walk-in stone shower that is just heaven after a long beach day. The bedrooms are equipped with AC, plenty of closet space, and unlike the rock-hard beds found throughout Mexico, very cozy memory foam topped mattresses.

Casa Risa comes with free WiFi, a full kitchen, AC in the bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout, 100% cotton sheets, quilts and towels, TV with Netflix, Logitech speaker dock, bottled drinking water, kitchen supplies and a few other touches to make your stay enjoyable. We also provide beach towels, boogie boards, and a beach umbrella.

Casa de Risa means “House of Laughter” and we hope that you will create many joyful memories during your stay with us in magical Sayulita.

* Playa de Los Muertos (Beach of the Dead which is named for the beautiful cemetery it is located next to) is a short 15 minute walk. This beach has minimal vendors, plenty of shade and gentle waves. A life guard is on duty most of the time and the roped off swimming area gives you a chance to play in the waves and float around in the water safely. Unlike the North side of Sayulita which has rip currents and is near the water treatment plant, the South side is the more clean and pristine Mexico experience you crave. And in just a 20-25 minute walk from Casa Risa is Playas Carricitos, Patzcuaro and Patzcuarito. While caution should be used while swimming or bodysurfing these beaches, the beauty and remoteness is highly desirable for meditation, yoga, or reading a good book.

Wonderful place to stay in Sayulita!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! We were a group of 4, two couples, and the size was ideal. The beds were comfortable, and we utilized the kitchen, living room, and outdoor space. Leah and Ali are amazing hosts. They thought of everything! The guide book they put together gave us more information than we could have thought to ask, and everything we could have wanted in the space was there waiting for us. We cooked a few meals there as the kitchen was so well stocked. The shower had hot water and good pressure. It's about a 10 minute walk to town in a really quiet area, which we appreciated a lot, as we've stayed in town previously and had trouble sleeping because of the noise. And since we stayed for a week, they scheduled a mid-stay cleaning of the house, which was unexpected and so nice. Highly, highly recommend!

A wonderful place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything that we needed and wanted. The directions for arriving there are fabulous and the binder that Leah has prepared was extremely helpful. We strongly recommend booking your next stay in Sayulita here. It's close enough to the town and the beach and yet far enough away to have your own little paradise all to yourself. Be sure to bring sturdy walking/running shoes to navigate the streets. We have already recommended this charming place to friends and strangers.

An absolutely perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Risa in January with our 10 month old son and this was an ideal spot for our family. The perfect distance from Sayulita’s Center where we could easily walk in to enjoy the restaurants and bustle but we couldn’t hear the noise when on the property. It also felt like a little more of an authentic experience as neighbors had roosters, we could watch as they repaired a thatched roof, and were friendly to talk to if you spoke Spanish. The hosts were wonderful! Leah and Ali were super nice and accessible if we needed but gave us our space. I would absolutely recommend this VRBO and this town for an easy and enjoyable family vacation.

Christmas at Casa Risa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Risa was everything it promised to be! Clean, spacious, and conveniently located. The beds were comfy and the foliage in the yard was beautiful to look out the window at. Ali and Leah were helpful and available when we needed them. There is a noisy rooster across the road - nothing the owners can do about that, but packing ear plugs if you're a light sleeper might be helpful. Providing a broom would be helpful, we found that we tracked in sand and would have liked to be able to sweep out the entrance. Overall we loved our Christmas at Casa Risa and look forward to another trip to Sayulita and this charming casa in the future!

Clean hospitable and quiet rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Ali and Leah's place. Located on a quiet side street it was the perfect place to just be and reflect on the busy town of Salyulita. Thanks so much!
