An introduction to Casa dos Chicos

How would you describe Casa dos Chicos in a nutshell

Casa dos Chicos is a Mexican retreat that is also a tree house and a luxurious vacation home located in Sayulita on the Mexican Riviera. The villa 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.

What was your inspiration to buy a villa in Mexico and rent it to vacation guests?

Somebody had told us about Sayulita and how charming it was, so we decided to check it out and then stumbled upon the villa. 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 vacation guests because we wanted to share the beauty of our discovery and the results of our design vision with the world.

The villa is very colourful and typical of Mexico. How would you describe the style of Casa dos Chicos?

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!

To you personally, what is so special about this vacation rental?

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!

What made you decide to buy a property in Mexico?

Madness! And a love for the Mexican culture and the beautiful tropical beaches.

What is local life like and what would your perfect day at Casa dos Chicos look like?

Local life is very vibrant and everything happens in the streets. You can eat and drink and shop and listen to music till late at night. My perfect day is to wake up and stretch out on the roof top living room with a glass of orange juice, the birds singing all around and some yoga. Walk to town for some breakfast street food and head for the beach with our dog Lilli. Have lunch on the beach with a Margarita. Swim a little, or surf or hike the jungle and take endless walks on the beach till mid afternoon. Come back to the house for a dip in the pool, a snack, some reading and napping and then a shower. Cook some fish on the grill or walk to town for some guacamole and tacos and enjoy the local music and art scene. And before going to bed a dip in the jacuzzi is a must!

  • Yoga classes
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Horseback riding
  • Scuba diving

  • Fishing

Whale watching in the winter months and surfing for sure. I love to ride horses which you can rent on the beach as well as hiking in the jungle to reach deserted beaches north and south of the town. There are companies who organize zip lining in the jungle and all kind of tours. Sayulita is full of boutiques and great crafts and shopping is a must to bring home some local color. Of course the best thing is always to chill out at the beach and take in the sun.

Whale watching is best in the winter months when they come to give birth from the northern US and Canada waters. At times you can see them so close to the coast that you feel you can swim to them. Best chances to experience them up close is to hire a boat to take you where they are hanging out for the day and see them spray and jump out of the water.

The location of Casa dos Chicos

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. Sayulita is on the Pacific Coast in what is called the Mexican Riviera, just a half an hour north of Puerto Vallarta.

Sayulita has an interesting community made up of locals, ex-pats and hippies from the United States, Europe and Canada, a new generation of hippies from Mexico City and the local and imported surfing community which gives the town a great vibe and energy. You can walk everywhere and it’s free of large hotels making it still a charming fishing village with great food and local color.

When is the best time to visit Mexican Riviera?

We are open year-round with our high season lasting from November until April. Summers are very hot and humid but still beautiful. However, I would recommend Spring and Fall as the most temperate seasons.
