— Patrizio: “The house sits on top of a hill overlooking the ocean and the town of Sayulita below, yet it is just a short walk to town and the beach.”
Interview By: Welcome Beyond
— What was your inspiration to buy a villa in Mexico and rent it to guests?
Patrizio: “Somebody had told us about Sayulita and how charming it was, so we decided to check it out and then stumbled upon the house. We were not planning on buying but we instinctually felt that the place was right for us even though it was a wreck and needed a lot of work. My partner Mark always wanted a vacation home in Mexico and the price and potential for this property felt just right. We felt compelled to rent the house to guests because we wanted to share the beauty of our discovery and the results of our design vision with the world.”

— The casa is very colourful and typical of Mexico. How would you describe the style of the interior?
Patrizio: “Modern, clean, airy, in touch with the amazing tropical nature outside and culturally connected to the history of Mexican design. I have always been a fan of Barragan and as an Italian it always seemed so exotic and interesting that he would take the modernism that I love and adapt it to local colors and materials. It showed me the endless possibility and fun aspect of architecture!”

— Please tell us a bit about the facilities and rooms of the house.
Patrizio: “The house has 4 suites all with king size beds, private baths and sitting areas. It can sleep up to 10 people in total with additional 2 twin beds. The top floor is devoted to the kitchen, dining room, living room, hammocks and the Jacuzzi. It’s all outside in the open air protected only by tall palapa roofs and exposed to the gentle breezes of the hill. The views from up there are amazing. You can experience the whole coast, the jungle, the mountains and the town below.

At ground level the garden is lush and full of flowers. There is a heated pool, an outdoor shower and 2 private sitting areas with barbecue. My favorite piece is a Mexican version of an Italian fountain all done with beach pebbles sitting right in the middle of the garden.”

— What would you describe to be the essence of the villa?
Patrizio: “It is a Mexican retreat that is also a tree house and a luxurious vacation home. It is playful, fun and relaxing to the utmost. You never have to leave the house to feel like you are on vacation and I love that feeling of carefree joy that you get from being there.”

— To you personally, what is so special about the house?
Patrizio: “I feel very proud of this project because all the thought that went into the renovation feels repaid with the beauty I always seek in life. And in the process I perfected my Spanish through working with contractors and local trades!”
