Xocotla (Show-Coat-La) sits on a small hill in the delightful Mexican Pacific coast fishing and surfing village of Sayulita. The indigenous Nahuatl word means:
Where the fruit trees are plentiful.
A canopy of ancient white fig trees provided the name for our home, which is tucked into the corner of a huge jungle garden. Constructed in 2005 and 2006, Xocotla was designed by acclaimed architect Jose Enrique del Valle in conjunction with the owners, in an elegant and eco-friendly manner.
Combining the very best of modern and traditional Mexican styles, cooling ocean breezes and ceiling fans provide the only air-conditioning you might need. Enjoy the sound of the surf as it lulls you to sleep.
The house is centrally located part-way up a small hill in a quiet residential neighbourhood. An easy three minute walk takes you to the plaza, and another two minutes finds you at the beach. A car is not necessary to enjoy all that Sayulita has to offer; however, there is secure parking for two small cars. For the quiet enjoyment of the house and gardens, children under 10 are not allowed.
Four private apartments are tastefully furnished and decorated with traditional furniture and handicrafts from Mexico's famous markets. Each apartment sleeps a maximum of two people, in either a king-size bed or two twin beds. The beds, linens and bath towels are of the highest quality.
Xocotla is ideal as a place for family or friends to vacation together with the luxury of separate apartments, allowing everyone to have their privacy while providing several areas in which to congregate. Or, come to stay on your own and perhaps forge new and lasting friendships.
