Estrella Del Mar was exquisite. I stayed a week at Casa Estrellita this December, and it could not have been more serene and beautiful: soaring white walls with huge sheet glass windows opening onto the tropical jungle that spreads away at arm’s length on two sides.
The gorgeous photos almost don’t do it justice. The serene simplicity of the design, and the care that has been put into the elegant furnishings and linens, made it feel like a private oasis, just a short walk along lovely, dusty, flower-strewn paths down to the beach or the charming town.
The pool was amazing – like something from a magazine. Set on the edge of a beautiful terrace garden of draught-resistant native plants, the curved outer lip is level with the jungle canopy, the hill falling dramatically down to the sea below. You can see the waves rolling in all along the sweep of Sayulita’s main beach.
Estrella’s owners were equally incredible. Not only do I appreciate their energy-conscious sensibility in the design, they went above and beyond to provide me with information, suggestions, anything and everything I asked about or could have needed.
It was truly the most beautiful, restorative holiday I’ve had in years. Highly recommended to anyone seeking a very special, very stunning Mexican holiday experience. I hope to be back soon.
