“Serene Private Oasis in Sayulita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2011

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.

Estrella del Mar is an exquisite property perched on a cliff overlooking the town of Sayulita and surrounding beaches. We stayed in Marita, the property's lower casita, which is nestled in the jungle overlooking Playa Los Muertos and open ocean. With its floor to ceiling windows, staying there felt like living in a luxury treehouse for a week. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and perfectly appointed and the decor overall is fresh and inviting.

The walk to town and the beach was quick and easy--10 minutes--but Estrella is removed enough to make you feel like you reside on an exclusive hilltop. It's easy to spend the day lounging on the terrace or by the infinity pool. It's also a quick walk to a morning yoga class held in a nearby palapa.

I would highly recommend Estrella to anyone looking to experience the tranquility of an oceanside retreat with access to the bustle and play of a charming beachside town.

What a beautiful house! Estrella Del Mar is every bit as good as the pictures portray.
About a 10 - 15 minute walk into town but it was always a pleasure to come home to.
The booking process was a breeze and the owners were very helpful every step of the way.
Will definitely stay there on future Sayulita trips.

Our stay at Estrella Del Mar offered us fantastic views of Sayulita's beach, incredible sunsets, jungle foliage with tropical birds but most of all, relaxation and solitude. We opted for a place outside of town that was closer to Los Muertos beach. From answering questions about the property prior to booking or responding immediately to a minor mechanical problem with the safe, owners AnnMarie and Isaac could not have been more attentive. Estrella del Mar was anidyllic setting on the hillside of Sayulita. A great place to get away from it all...we're ready to go back. A & K

We stayed in Casa Estrellita. The house is at the top of the hill on the southern point with incredible views all around. We could see Sayulita on one side, the jungle on the other and Playa Los Muertos from the bedroom.

The house is beautifully designed, spacious and well-equipped. We especially loved the 2-story loft and the spa bathroom. We ended up spending much of our time relaxing on the lounge chairs on the terrace, sunning, reading and watching the stars.

If you're looking for some relaxation, this is the perfect place. The neighborhood is extremely quiet. (There are only two other houses nearby.) The house is close to the center of town but it's far enough away to have some peace and quiet. (There is quite a lot of construction happening all throughout Sayulita.) The walk to the center of town was a little over 10 minutes by road.

The owners were extremely helpful with everything from bilingual directions with photos to recommendations for excursions. We felt very much taken care of. We will definitely be back to try out Casa Marita next time. I highly recommend a stay at Casa Estrellita!
