The Casa Dos Chicos
Perks for the Parents
A short walk from Sayulita’s fantastic beach, this one-of-a-kind residence with a pool has a treetop hot tub, an open air living area and 4 well-designed suites to relax in. Best for families with older children, it has bright decor and fabulous views of the ocean, mountains, town and beach from all rooms. There is lots of space for a group family holiday - the spacious bedrooms allow everyone a bit of privacy. Great destination for surfing - both beginners and advanced. There is a Mexican-style open air living area with a rooftop living room and kitchen/dining room dramatically linked by a bridge.
Why Kids Love it
Walking distance from the beach, this beautiful Mexican home is an easy place to stay with older kids. Walk into town to browse craft boutiques, taco stands and fruit stalls, learn to surf on the town beach, and relax in the swimming pool, hammocks or hot tub. Nearby activities include whale watching (Nov-Apr), fishing, kayaking, jungle trekking and snorkelling. Pool toys and board games are provided and a high chair can be set up if needed. A golf cart can be arranged for local transport. Bedrooms are arranged with a kingsize bed in each and 2 single sofa beds are available for kids. Rooms can be configured to suit.
Things to Know
Minimum stay: 7 days. Reduced rates available for longer stays. Weekly stays run Saturday to Saturday. Rates listed are for an occupancy of 8; additional guests including children over 2 are charged at $60 per person per night. The security deposit for this property is not taken on booking by Kid & Coe but is levied separately by the host on check in. There are some hazards for small children: drops, balconies and an unfenced pool. Some bedrooms open straight on to balconies. We do not recommend this property for families with toddlers, but it works for those with non-crawling babies and older kids. A crib can be provided on request. There is no TV. Bathrooms are shower only. A daily maid service is included. Parking available.
About the Location
The property is in Sayulita, a town on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. It is in the Riviera Nayarit, around 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta international airport. It is on a hill above the town, a 5-minute walk to the beach. Sayulita is a major surf town with a laid back atmosphere. Its streets are alive with taco stands, fruit stalls, boutiques, galleries and surf shops. The residence is a short walk to the main beach, and other beaches are just a short drive away. Car hire is useful if you plan to travel beyond the town; taxis are freely available in Sayulita.
The house has 4 double bedrooms, each with a king size bed, private bathroom, fan, sitting area and safe. Two of the bedrooms have single sofa beds that can be set up for children. The bedroom building is separate from the living space - at treetop level - which has hammocks, a hot tub, a lounge and an outdoor kitchen. There is a heated outdoor pool (9m x 5m) at ground level with outdoor shower. The outdoor kitchen and dining area are linked by a high bridge to the living space. There is a pool and walled gardens on the ground level.
Fully energising decor - bright colours (salmon pink, turquoise, deep purple) against pure white walls. There are palapa roofs on the outdoor spaces and the overall look is vibrant and colorful. Views are of ocean, coastline and foothills of Sierra Madre beyond Sayulita itself. The tree-top Jacuzzi has ocean views, as does the Mexican-styled open air living room. There is a dramatic bridge linking the kitchen/dining area and the living room. We love the pool and garden, the hammocks swaying in the rooftop living area and the stylish and spacious suites.
