This was our third trip to Sayulita, and first stay at Casa Jubiloso. First 2 trips we stayed in properties directly in town, with Jubiloso about 2.5 miles outside of town. We've always rented golf carts, and for this property I'd highly recommend one (gas powered) if you plan frequent trips into Sayulita. This property is best for 2 couples or less, as it only offers 2 bedrooms/bathrooms. The 2nd being in the apt below. Both have master suites attached, and each has a twin bed in addition to King (main floor) and Queen (below apt). We found ourselves making loads of Pico in the kitchen and relaxing all day, poolside. The view is spectacular, and the privacy/seclusion was fantastic. We didn't spend much time under the palapa, but if shade is important to you, look no further.
Eric, the property manager lives just down the hill and was very helpful when we needed anything at all.
Of the 3 homes we’ve stayed in Sayulita, Jubiloso has by far the best pool. Plenty of space for several people, and nearly 6 feet deep. The other 2 have been glorified hot tubes, which seems to be a trend in many of the rentals in town.
We took 2-3 trips into town daily, Sayulita has fabulous shops and street food both day and night. Also offers a couple markets to get fresh foods for cooking at home. Having the gas powered cart from the rental company Craig recommended on his website, it took about 10 minutes each way to get to and from town. If you’re a beach goer, just down the hill from Jubiloso is access to an excellent virtually private beach. If you’re into reality TV (like my wife), and feel like climbing some rocks, you’ll discover the house used for Bachelor in Paradise on north end of this beach.
If a quite getaway is what you’re seeking, and okay with being slightly outside of town, look no further than Casa Jubiloso.
We spent 9 amazing days at Casa Jubiloso and cannot say enough about how incredible this place is! The photos do NOT do it justice! The views from the veranda and the pool are breathtaking and you never ever tire of gazing out at the ocean...there is also no better place for incredible sunsets!
This was our third trip to Sayulita and the fourth different place we have stayed at and it is absolutely the best we have had! A few lessons learned from our trips...
1. Consider using a car service to pick you up at the airport and take you to Sayulita. The taxi drivers at the airport usually don’t like going out to Sayulita and they are usually small, cramped and uncomfortable. We use Versa Premium car service out of Sayulita and they pick you up in a comfy, air conditioned, suburban! And then they come and pick you up to take you back to the airport! Amazing service.
2. Rent a car or golf cart to get around, there is no better way to see all of the sights in a Sayulita! Craig was able to recommend a local car rental company to use that is extremely reasonable for price (don’t rent at the airport!!) or contact Sayulita Golf Cart rentals.
3. Get some supplies on your way to the Casa...once you are there you don’t want to leave!! We stopped at the Mega in Bucerias and picked up enough supplies to last us the first couple of days so we could just relax and enjoy the Casa!
4. Make sure you have an international plan for cell phones as there is currently no wifi at the Casa and sometimes you just need to contact the outside world...or the property manager! LOL
Casa Jubiloso is incredibly comfortable and has a wonderful blend of traditional Mexican and modern conveniences...there wasn’t anything that we needed that wasn’t provided! We will absolutely book this property again and hope you consider it as well...you will NOT be disappointed!
If you want peace and quiet this is the place. We read a lot of books and listened to great music. You need a vehicle to carry your bags and get groceries. We enjoyed the walks into Sayulita and took shorter hikes down to the beaches. However, the remote location in the jungle may also bring you into contact with scorpions. Look down when entering or exiting the casa. Overall, it was a restful retreat from the busy streets of Sayulita. We particularly enjoyed having coffee and watching various species of jungle birds flying past our balcony.

We just visited here at the end of September for a week and it was absolutely perfect. There is seriously a moment everyday since then where my husband and I say we wish we were back there sitting in the pool watching the sunset? I was hesitant at first to book a house because we'd never been to this area of Mexico and I wasn't sure what we were getting into but it was the best decision ever. Getting there was simple, we rented a jeep and driving around was so beautiful and so much fun (especially on the bumpy roads). We took a few day trips to the surrounding areas and kept saying how glad we were to have chosen where we were staying. We have a one year old and found it was perfect to have the kitchen and all the space for her to crawl around. The pool is amazing and there is a grass area that is perfect for doing yoga or eating picnic style with the baby, There are beautiful birds and butterflies everywhere and the beach (which is easy to walk to- it took us 15 min walking with a baby and I'm pregnant) was like our own private paradise. We were there in off season so the town was more quiet than usual but we still found delicious food and a beautiful beaded doll to take home as a souvenir. We will be back again and I cannot wait!
I'm torn about giving this bit of paradise a review because that only means that others will discover what I already have! But, my mama always taught me to share and word of this rental will creep out no matter what--it is that good! We spent 10 days there and I wish it was way more! Most of our time - sun up until well past sunset - was spent on the veranda just gazing at the jungle as it melted into the Pacific. We grabbed our groceries and cerveza and just relaxed day in and day out. But--isn't there always a but?--we also had to get our adventure and social life going and Sayulita was just the place for that! Surfing, stand up paddle boarding and music on Friday night in the old style town square satisfied our every need. Seriously, Casa Jublioso is a charming, comfortable vacation retreat that will offer something for everyone. Jump on this rental NOW!
