About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Affordable Casa Mural offers the BEST LOCATION in town, north of the river, 1.5 blocks from the beach, 4 blocks from restaurants and shops at the Plaza. It's a charming, spacious, Mexican-style home with beamed ceilings, arched doorways, large windows and lovely, colorful murals on the walls. We pride ourselves on offering a very nice home at a reasonable price.

Walls are thick stucco, the interior cool and quiet. Every room has excellent ventilation, screens, and ceiling fans. All mattresses are new. Kitchen large, well equipped.

Large covered veranda offers comfortable outside seating for relaxing and dining. Brand new swimming pool and patio now ready for you to try out! Large yard is quiet, peaceful, shaded by mango, lime, coconut, and banana trees. They're prolific in season, so help yourself! Washer and dryer on site. A new swimming pool was added in October of 2016 to add to your enjoyment.

House and yard entirely walled and gated, you'll feel very secure and private. Safe provided for valuables. Because Casa Mural is ideally located, no need to rent a car (not on a mountainside, as so many of Sayulita’s rental houses are, so no steep hills to climb). However, we do have garage parking.

Our property manager speaks English and lives nearby.

Casa Mural is comfy, clean, and functional. There are box games, puzzles, cards, and books to read in the cupboards, so pack light --simply come, relax, enjoy!

Fresh sheets, towels, and purified drinking water are provided. If you prefer to eat in, but don't want to cook, we can recommend caterers.

We provide a safe and Wifi. We will send you a comprehensive welcome packet that includes activities, information on local transportation and communication options, the best restaurants, beaches, medical emergency info, etc...

Air conditioning is available June through November. Because of the thick stucco walls, excellent ventilation, and ceiling fans in every room, you won't need it during most of the year.

We have added two new casitas in the back yard which will add our total capacity to 12-14 people. They will be available by Jan. of 2018. Photos coming soon.

Comments from recent guests:

'Everything was wonderful at Casa Mural. Your home is beautiful and comfortable and we felt very safe there with the nice walls, etc...By the way, the setup of the rooms with the 'little apartment' separate kitchen and bathroom was excellent. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home.'

Alex Paul - Portland, Oregon

'We very much enjoyed staying seven weeks in Casa Mural. It has arched, Mexican charm and we especially enjoyed the veranda and walled-in back area. We spent many hours enjoying the great weather and relaxing in the shade of the veranda. The location of the house is great. A short walk to beach or downtown area. We hope to stay again soon.'

Gary and Judy Harnetiaux - Lake Ozark, Missouri

'Casa Mural is close to everything, but is located on a quiet street. It is very nicely decorated, and it was large enough to easily accommodate all 7 of us.'

Brenda Waldrop, Seattle, WA

'My family had an extraordinary vacation in Sayulita! The location, the house, the people were all that we had hoped for and more. If we had gone to a typical resort we would have been separated by hotel rooms. At your home we were able to relax, cook, sit around the table and talk about our lives, our hopes, our plans. We were able to reconnect in the most amazing way.'

Diane Merrick, Durango, CO

'TRULY , we loved Casa Mural - the location and back yard were

ideal. It really worked out perfect. We truly relaxed and spent quality time with our family....thanks for sharing your great casa -- and we LOVED Sayulita -- we do want to return again. I will certainly recommend your place.'

Ann Marie, Alaska

'Our family of 6, from 3 generations, had a wonderful time and a huge part of it was how comfortable and welcome we felt at Casa Mural! The bedrooms are nicely separated, quiet and private from each other. The location couldn't be better. We'll be back!'

The Cornwall Family, Sacramento, CA

'A huge thanks for renting your gorgeous home in Sayulita to us. No surprises, house was exactly as pictured on the site, all the restaurants you recommended were fabulous, distances to everything was perfect, and we were relaxed and comfortable every minute of every day. Would love to reserve right now for next year. We had a great time, the perfect vacation.'

The Mostovoy Family

'Thank you very much for letting myself and my friends stay at your house. Your place was absolutely fantastic. It was clean, tidy and very comfortable. We had a great time relaxing and having margaritas on the terrace!! We also met your friendly-iguana!!!

I will certainly recommend your place!'

Janine Nixon, New ZealandCasa

'Mural is spacious and comfortable, with an easy walk to town or the beach making it a great location! We had a wonderful holiday and having Casa Mural as our home away-from-home was a good experience. The washing machine is a nice feature, especially for longer stays; we really appreciated the barbeque and the fully equipped kitchen for those nights we chose to eat at home.'

About Steve Heath

We have been owners of the Casa Mural since 2011 and have loved every minute of it. We don't get to stay there as often as we'd like, but part of the fun is sharing it with so many guests from all over the world that have stayed with us. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Very peaceful and quiet space...

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Casa Mural and it has continued to improve the property with a pool, two lovely casitas, and great landscaping. The back yard is a serene oasis right in the heart of the city with lovely trees, bird-watching, or just enjoying a siesta on the veranda. We will be sure to return to Casa Mural.

Good location, old style, needs care

  • 3 of 5

The property needs attention, sprucing up. A new stove, more towel racks, fresher curtains would help. There was plenty of room for 5 adults to sleep, rest on veranda or sit by pool but more lounge chairs needed. Initially it was quiet at night even though on a main street but Spring Break brought a lot more noise. The north side is overall less congested and quieter. The nicer beach is two level blocks away and several very good places to eat are on the way; convenience and grocery stores right there; stalls, ATMs and taxi close by.

Wonderful potential

  • 3 of 5

The owner was gracious and responsive. Casa Mural was a nice and comfortable place that lacked a certain charm. It needs to live up to it's potential.

Great house, great location, very nice backyard area

  • 5 of 5

Pictures were spot on, it was clean and airy, lots of fans to keep cool. Very nice backyard, nice deck to relax on. Very easy walk to the beach and to town, road was semi-quiet - some traffic noise. Proximity to the ball field means that *anything* that goes on in the ball field (concert, quinceanera, etc) is both very loud and quite unavoidable at the house. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of utensils, fridge was normal size, plenty of storage. We couldn't get the oven quite up to temperature, but the stove top worked fine. Pool was clean and well-maintained. Lots of restaurants, shops, etc very near by and overall, just a charming house in a great location.

Perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have picked a better location. The city center is only a few minutes to walk to but we were so happy we weren't any closer when we realized how loud it can be at night. Casa Mural is on the peaceful north end of town, but still with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The beach is at the end of the street, about two blocks. We were a group of 5 with plenty of space for sleeping, three toilets, two showers, and lots of room for lounging inside and out. The back area is wonderful for relaxing in the shade or lounging poolside, private and secure. The pool was a huge bonus! The caretaker was pleasant and very helpful, and easy to reach if we had any requests. The floor seemed a bit dirty when we got there, but we found a mop and broom and weren't bothered to give it a scrub. The kitchen had everything we needed and lots of space for hanging out. I'd definitely return here!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for almost two weeks with six friends in total. Plenty of room for all of us. Had a couple come down from PV for one night and they stayed on the pullout couch. The location with that backyard and pool can't be beat at that price. We had an issue with the hot water, but once I asked about it, it was dealt with within an hour. Its not super fancy, but it has everything you need. And we absolutely loved having that private pool to ourselves.
