" Great Location! This was our first time at Casa Sorpresa and not our last. My husband and I stayed here with our baby and it was perfect. The outside living area with the pool was so peaceful and despite being very close to town and next to many cafes and restaurants the house itself is very quiet. It is also just a quick walk to the beach. We loved waking up and if we didn't want to cook you can go next door to the Northside Cafe where they serve great coffee and excellent breakfast! "

" Beyond our expectations!!! When we open the gates we were greeted by what I can only describe as a mini-paradise. The landscaping was lush and the pool clean and inviting. Inside was just as amazing. Two complete master suites with a/c beautifully decorated with artistic local flair. The kitchen was complete and clean. We were also delighted to find a small back courtyard with a fountain and room with laundry facilities. Casa Sorpresa was also within walking distance to some great restaurants and we brought along a two year old. My only regret is 7 days was too short! "

" Beautiful. Four adults staying In Casa Sopresa last week in laid back Sayulita, booked fairly last minute as our original accommodation plan fell through. We had a fantastic time. First, the owner Elsbeth, and manager in Sayulita, Theo: both were coeteous, accommodating, polite and dealt with all of our issues/questions (including having patience with the financial arrangements due to booking short notice) very efficiently. Can't say enough about them, and having Theo in Sayulita should any issues arrise onsite is nice peace of mind. The Casa: the pictures do it some justice, but it is better in person. I Promise. The exterior space is huge and private, beautiful garden with tall palms on one side, and a high wall on the pool side bordering the building next door, so it is truly like your own retreat. The solid gate at the front also forms a wall, adding to your exclusive feel. Could easily park two cars inside the gate if you rented, very safe and secure. The gardens are well cared for and along with the gorgeous pool (fed with its own waterfall) and the fountain, complete the oasis feel. Numerous sofas, chairs, tables and a hammock outside make it all the more comfortable, especially in the evenings. Tasteful night lighting and decorations for the outdoor space too, which is true inside as well. The icing on the cake outside is the outdoor shower and toilet, perfect for coming back from the beach to rinse off the sand before jumping in the pool without having to go in the house. Inside two huge bedrooms (I mean huge!) with their own full bathrooms and showers are more space than an individual or even couple would need. The kitchen is equally as open, and has all the cooking amenities you could need if you ever get tired of the excellent dining scene in Sayulita, (which would be very hard to do). Great laundry facilities in a separate laundry room at the back of Casa were a very nice luxury, modern washer and drier, soap provided, perfect for washing the beach off your clothes before the flight home. Hanging line as well to dry items, which in the heat and sun takes no time. Between the laundry room and Casa is another lovey and private outdoor space, complete with more gardens and a barbecue, just in case the outdoor space at the front of the Casa wasn't enough. All the little items too are included, such as linens, soaps, four huge beach towels which of course we made good use of, and all the bottled water you could drink - that felt like a true luxury as we were preparing to go buy some upon arrival. There is a huge water dispenser in the main foyer, with a full extra bottle, another one in a bedroom, and a smaller jug in the bathroom of the other bedroom. Cleaning service three times a week, along with gardening and pool maintenance too, makes you fee like you are treated like royalty. Everything was extremely clean and tidy upon arrival. Literally all you have to do is show up with your suitcase. Perfect for two couples, but could accommodate more people too with couches in bedrooms. Finally, location location location. Not that in Sayulita it is a long walk for anything, but Casa Sorpresa is perfectly situated. Just over a block from the beach, slightly North of the the main town plaza so you don't get all of the noise and bustl e of being right in town. A flat ten minute walk at the most gets you to the heart of town, and that's at a leisurely pace (of which everything in Sayulita is). Easy walk too from the bus stop for the local bus from Peurto Vallarta and the airport (take the local bus for $3 dollars or so versus a taxi costing infinitely more, it's great fun too and an authentic experience). As with all of Sayulita, awesome places to eat are everywhere, but if you like really good wood fired pizza, you have to check out Pizza Venezia, literally just around the corner from the Casa - fantastic thin crust in true Neopolitan style. You can't go wrong with Casa Sorpresa and Sayulita. Actually I'll say I challenge you to find a cleaner, larger, better located rental feels like your own oasis, and more accommodating owner than Elsbeth. We were there during the World Standup Paddle Board Surf Championships which added a great energy and entertainment to the town during the start of the off season, combined with perfect weather, and yet arguably the highlight of the trip was Casa Sopresa. Next visit I know where I'll be staying. Hasta Luego! "

" Wow! To say we had an amazing time is such an understatement. This beautiful property had it all. The bedrooms were lovely, the kitchen had all of the appropriate amenities. The courtyard off the kitchen was a perfect spot for breakfast. In the afternoon to relax by the pool and ponder which fabulous restaurant we were going to walk to was the hardest decision we had to make.Everything was within reach, although we did rent a golf cart as we are two "soon to be seniors" and my Mother. the booking process was smooth and all of our questions were quickly answered. The maid and the pool staff were courteous and efficient. Across the street we found an excellent company that we hired a car to take us to neighboring towns. All in all we would go back in a heartbeat! "

" Secret Garden! In our 6 past visits to Sayulita we have walked past the beautiful front gate to Casa Sorpresa and always wondered what was inside. Sometimes I would even sneak a peek under the gate. Well now we know the true treasure that this home is. We were 2 couples and 2 children and had a wonderful 10 day stay at Casa Sorpresa, we can't wait to come back again. It was so fantastic to have a beautifully manicured yard with a salt water swimming pool and fountain to entertain us. It was also so convenient with its own washer and dryer available for our use, allowing us to pack lightly and save baggage fees. It's location can't be beat at the quiet North Side and only a block to the beach. You won't be sorry to book this home but you will be sorry to leave. "

" We loved it's location, its huge space inside and out, it's cleanliness, and of course the pool and outdoor shower were wonderful to have. Exploring Sayulita, especially with the Standup Paddle Boarding Championship happening, was great, and the weather was of course lovely. But one of the best parts was Casa Sorpresa, and I know we would all stay there again without question. "
