Casa Mar y Montana, Sayulita, Mexico

Customer Testimonials 2014-2016

My husband, 4 year old and I spent a whole month at Casa Mar y Montana. We could not have asked for a better spot. It is a few steps from town with stunning views of Sayulita. The property was extremely clean, very secure and had a lot of chill spots. We felt like we were home the whole time we were there. The property manager, cleaning lady and owner were extremely friendly and helpful. As mentioned in other reviews yes there is a very steep hill to the house. We had fun with it, some days we went up and down just for an extra work out. Let me tell you our buns were a lot firmer when we left. I would not hesitate to book Casa Mar y Montana again and hopefully someday we will be able to make it back to Sayulita to do just that. If you are in any way still up in the air on this rental, just do it. You will not be disappointed.

The home was wonderfully located and beautifully maintained with a fully stocked kitchen and incredible views of the ocean and mountains. Hans and Susanne clearly communicated everything prior to my arrival. The house manager (who was in Sayulita but I didn't get to meet in person) was easy to get in touch with via email and was also very responsive when things came up (it was the beginning of rainy season and there were some ants getting into the house so she sent someone to spray the property). Overall, a lovely place to enjoy the beautiful town of Sayulita!

Hans & Susanne have a wonderful casa on the hill overlooking the town, the jungle & the ocean. I had a wonderful, peaceful stay here with no issues sharing the kitchen. It is a large home with ample space to enjoy. 5-10 min walk to the beach or town but lovely and peaceful at night. Very nice use of space with lots of outdoor nooks to enjoy. Thanks for the wonderful stay

Hans and Susanne were great and absolutely made us feel welcome. The grounds are lovely just like their employees. It was nice that they asked us and our neighbor for our input about their house as they had not been there for over a year. We would have really appreciated more information about the road and driveway to the house, especially if guests are driving a (smaller) vehicle or are older or with disabilities. Also, the beds could be a lot more comfortable. However, we enjoyed our stay and the ability to prepare meals. We had great neighbors and The view is Lovely. It was definitely better than being in town where it can get very noisy.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, and safe room in a very pretty setting. Ten minute walk to beach and also 10 minutes to restaurants, cafes etc. of town yet far enough to be quiet at night. I was fortunate to be there at same time as Hans & Susanne who were very friendly, helpful, informative and gracious hosts. No hesitation in recommending these hosts for a great stay in Sayulita.

Estuvimos 5 días en Sayulita en una casa muy acogedora y con un jardín precioso. La distribución del jardín es muy linda y está muy bien cuidado. Tiene una linda vista a Sayulita y al mar. Nos gusto la privacidad y seguridad de la casa. Los anfitriones siempre estuvieron al pendiente de nosotros. La decoración de la casa nos gusto mucho también. En la cocina contamos con todo lo necesario para nosotros. Fue una buena opción de viaje!!!!

We were a little skeptical at first because the unit stated it's a shared living area. On arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the layout of the unit. Yes, you technically do share the outdoor space and a kitchen, but you still feel like it is your own private oasis! We really enjoyed lounging outside and taking in all of the beautiful surroundings. It can be loud out night, because the town is lively and the house sits right above town. All you need is some ear plugs and you will be good to go. We were there during a carnival, so I think it was a little livelier than usual too. Also, it is a close walking distance to everything. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay AND you can't beat the price!

We stayed at Casa Mar y Montana for a week. We were there on our own so had full use of the kitchen. The location is great with gorgeous views of Sayulita and a short walk into town and to the beach. The garden is really beautiful with lots of nice plants and flowers to admire and birds visiting. There are shops and restaurants near the house so it was easy to get groceries or eat something when we didn't want to cook. The fan in the bedroom was a bit weak and so we had a couple of fairly hot nights trying to get to sleep. The other thing worth mentioning is that the walk up to the house is quite steep (in common with many places in Sayulita) and not very well lit so shoes that you can walk in and a torch are essentials!

Hans and Susanne are not on site but we had no problems with getting in touch with them when we needed too and their manager was very helpful. We found our staying very relaxing and enjoyable. Sayulita is a lovely place to visit for a holiday and I hope we can make it back there one day!

Hans Jakob, Switzerland                     April 2014

The apartment is very nice and gives that holiday feeling at every step. Particularly cozy, the outdoor courts, such as the seat and resting place on the roof or the BBQ. The location of the house with views over the village out into the Pacific is sensational. Sayulita we found unspoiled village with enough but not too much tourism hype. The beaches are very nice and clean. With Hans and Susanne we were able to clarify everything before holiday commencement. Concha, which is responsible on site for the house, was very friendly and helpful

Mar y Montana was in a great location. Close to the bus station with a short walk into town. It had extraordinary views of Sayulita and the ocean with plenty of places to sit outside and take it all in. The apartment is very clean and refreshing. The upstairs bedroom is outside, take advantage of this airy place to sleep or read. Because it is on a hill, you can hear the evening activities in town. If your sensitive to noise bring ear plugs, if not enjoy the lively hood that the night brings in Sayulita! Great place to stay.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful and tranquil place! Secluded enough to be hidden from the neighbors views, but still just a few minutes to walk to the center of Sayulita. The house is surrounded by a well groomed garden, that offers a lot of 'chill-spots'. Inside the kitchen, you find everything you need to make your own dinner and enjoy it in the loft on the 2nd floor with a great ocean view.

This is a gorgeous vacation home. My friend and I stayed for 1 week and we absolutely loved it.

We absolutely loved staying in Hans & Susanne's Casa in Sayulita. It is absolutely beautiful ! in a great location - so about 10 minutes walk from the town - yes there is a steep hill to climb but the stunning views and tranquility are worth it. Everything is maintained to a high standard and there is lots of gorgeous outdoor garden space to enjoy including a little roof deck with hammock, comfy lounging area, dining table and great views to the sea. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, as are the bathrooms. It really is a wonderful place to wake up in the morning and has the best of everything Sayulita can offer at a great price. We have stayed in other places in the town that were more expensive and not nearly to such a high standard. Would happily recommend.
