Sonrisa, surf villa in Mexico

Glorious terrace and pool

The terraces and 3 of the  4 bedrooms of this beach house have a view of the estuary and miles of unspoiled beach. This is where Casa Sonrisa becomes one with nature. Where you’ll meet iguanas on the doorstep, butterflies flit happily around, and hummingbirds pop by to keep you company during your morning cup of local organic coffee.

The terraces are set over two levels, with hidden corners where guests can enjoy an afternoon siesta. The private pool was reconstructed in 2018. Your own housekeeper Perla, who is an excellent cook, will be on hand to look after your every need. A stay at Casa Sonrisa will live on in your memories forever.

Read the Reviews


Not sure reviews or pictures do justice to the property! Casa Sonrisa is stunning, master bedroom has best sunrise views, patio looks down 17km of the deserted beach, the house opens up to let all the breezes flow. Perla cooks great authentic Mexican food, Wendy keeps everyone organized and looks after the details. All you have to do is eat, relax, walk the beach, lay by the pool and repeat. This is the best of non-resort vacationing. No crowds, no beach peddlers and you have to be willing to commit to entertaining yourselves. The countryside is real Mexico with every fruit and vegetable being grown you can think of. True farm to table with a little spice…

Bring cards, sandals, Yahtzee, a few good books and a cell plan.

I have been to every resort area in Mexico and will never go to another, off the beaten path to spots like this was a much better vacation for us.

My measure of a vacation is if I would go to the same place again, this is one of the few times the answer is yes!

Michel and Shannon, Our stay at Casa Sonrisa really was a glimpse of paradise! The grounds were gorgeous, the view was magnificent, the ocean and the beach were delightful! Warm water, perfect boogie boarding waves, sandy bottom (no rocks/no urchins), and the pool was great for the kids…a little chilly for me.

Your home was just right for us. Great towels/bedding, comfortable sitting arrangements and of course, Perla and her crew were the best. They prepared delicious, healthy meals for us and kept everything neat and tidy.
They really made my vacation so restful! Not having to think about food preparation does a mother’s heart good!
My only complaints would be that the kayak had a leak, and the paddle was broken and the noseeums! We’d heard about them but didn’t take precautions…and we all itched like crazy! Thank you for our Merry Christmas vacation!

We (my husband and I and three teens + my mother) stayed at this home. Shannon was extremely helpful with all the information she gave us before we headed up to Punta El Custodio from Sayulita. The house is gorgeous. It is beautifully decorated and the kitchen came stocked with all the appliances we needed. All of the bedding and linens were very nice, beds were comfortable. We were there for the surf and it, unfortunately, was not quite working the first two days but the 3rd and 4th days we got some decent waves. We only saw other people surfing on the weekend. Perla our housekeeper was a pleasant surprise. We paid her to prepare two meals for us + homemade tortillas. We ended up getting 4 meals out of what she prepared for us. It was all excellent. The community pool was gorgeous and the dipping pool in the backyard was used a lot. It was definitely hot during the time we were there but we were in the water a lot so that helped. We all really enjoyed this home.
