Tim – Winnepeg, Canada “This house is so comfortable an beautiful. Everyone connected with it has been completely helpful and friendly. Would definitely return – actually – why am I leaving??” March 2014 'We loved the house and location. Perfect really. Love the curvy design - pleasant breezes in every room. What wonderful architecture. And loved the mornings on the roof deck watching all the birds. Such a special home.” Ginny - San Mateo, CA House specifics: The lowest level is separate from the rest of the house and has a large air conditioned bedroom (a king bed that may be converted for use as two twins). Also on this level is a utility area, and half bath, with outdoor shower. This ground floor bedroom has its own entrance and is the only area of the entire house that does not have wi-fi. The next level is the main house entry hall, two large air-conditioned bedrooms, and a bathroom - great shower - no tub. One bedroom has a double bed and the somewhat larger one has a king that can be converted to make two twins. Both bedrooms have generous work spaces for writing your next novel, etc. There is a porta-crib available for a little one. The next level up is the living/dining/kitchen area. There is dining for 10 at the two tables, a well appointed kitchen, two couches and a nice full bathroom (no tub). Also on this level are outdoor spaces with a view of the ocean over the coconut palms. The house design is pretty amazing - it's shady, cool, and breezy - and ceiling fans are everywhere, in addition to the air conditioned bedrooms. On up the stairs to the rooftop floor one will find a beautiful rooftop area with additional dining area, comfy extra long banca, bath with shower, and a small pool. All of this is covered by a beautiful and dramatic palapa. Night times are especially magical up on the roof. The pool's about chest high - 12' or so in diameter - and great for relaxing, cooling off in the Summer, and whatever. The views on this level are pretty terrific - jungle, ocean, lovely neighborhood, etc. 'Que Bonita! Our first trip to Sayulita won't be our last and I know where we'll be staying from now on – Casa Maravilla has it all: pool, shade, quiet, hidden in the trees, great views and a wonderful rooftop palapa.' Pat, Sarah, and Little Liana. Boise Idaho. 'What a fabulous vacation. Thank you for opening your house to us. We had many wonderful meals in the kitchen, and many lazy afternoons by the pool. It was exciting to watch our little girl learn to swim in the pool…After a night out on the town it was so wonderful to come back to your comfortable home.' Mel, Jair, and Nova - British Columbia Canada 'Great vacation spot! What a beautiful house! Michael, you have a jewel here! We have seen such a variety of wildlife, and such a tranquil spot with great food. This place definitely rates a return visit. Thanks for a memory.'

My four friends and I were surprised by how beautiful this house is. As others have described, the circular design is unique. I wasn't sure if it would be Disneyland-cheesy or nice; it was gorgeous, livable, well-designed, and beautifully decorated as well. What a treasure....More
