Interaction with guests

I live on the premises in the lower studio. I generally am available should problems arise. Never the less we have an on call caretaker for all emergencies. This being Sayulita we cannot guarantee that the water, electricity and internet won't fail occasionally. But we will be on it pronto
whether I am here or not.

Other things to note

The house is just up from the beach. There two ways to approach the house. One is a gradual grade and the other is a direct line to the beach and a little steep. Most guest have no problem with either approach. We are nowhere near the top where it's impossible to arrive without a car. Most of our guests do not rent cars. Occasionally they might rent a cart, which are readily available.

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay in Utley' place (Casa Arroyo), a beautiful modern house, spacious and particularly bright (large windows, so a lot of light). The view from the front deck is simply superb. We appreciated the fact that the house is located in a quiet area of Sayulita, and that we could simply walk 10-12 minutes to get to "downtown". We also enjoyed being able to cool off in the jacuzzi on our way back from the beach, as well as before going to bed. The house is well equipped and anyone who would like to cook there will be able to do it easily. Overall, Utley's house is certainly one of the best place we have rented through Airbnb.

My wife and I honeymooned at this utopia for a week, everything was top notch and I would recommend it to anyone!!! It is a little bit of a walk into town especially in the October heat and humidity, we ended up renting a golf cart which was well worth the added expense. Utley was a great host!!!

We felt so lucky to have found Utley's modern 2-level studio with the beautiful ocean view. While there is an uphill to climb to get there, we didn't rent any vehicle during our stay, as it's a short walk. In fact, we loved that it included a bit of a workout! The view is even better in person. In fact, We didn't watch Sayulita's famous sunset from the beach once - we enjoyed the beautiful colours on the deck we had for ourselves. The place has everything you need - A/C, filtered water system, equipped kitchen and even parasol for us to borrow. Utley is an easygoing host and communicating with him was easy. We would definitely stay with Utley again when we are back in Sayulita!

Fantastic views of the bay from this modern and very spacious loft. Sayulita is a good compromise, a laid back town with a great choice of restaurants. Utley's place is in the quiet north area, close to the turtle release camp and within a short hike you can reach the almost desert beach of Malpaso. Overall a great place to relax and explore the Nayarit region.

We had the most amazing trip and this home is spectacular. Utley is a great host, always there to answer questions and offer suggestions. The pictures are a perfect representation of the house. His attention to detail and the overall design is awesome. We loved the location as it is on a hill with the most amazing ocean/sunset views, far enough away from the chaos of town but still close enough to get there within a couple of minutes with a golf cart. A golf cart is a must (in my opinion), the roads are cobblestone and really primitive in places. The air conditioning was a life saver and having a TV was a bonus for us. We cooked every morning and the kitchen is well equipped, what a joy it was to cook with a million dollar view!!! We will definitely come back and stay at Utleys!!!

This is an awesome apartment, so much bigger than it appears in the photos. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge area on the top floor is such a comfortable area to chill out and watch the beautiful views or the amazing lightning storms. The terrace at the rear gets the morning sun and is great for watching the beautiful coloured birds. The terrace to the front is perfect for the afternoon sun. There is a bit of a climb to and from the apartment but this didn't create a problem for us. The main town is about 10mins walk. Utley is a good host, always on hand but never intrusive so you really do feel you have the place to yourself. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Sayulita!

We really enjoyed our six-night stay at Casa Arroyo! Utley was a gracious host and ensured we had everything we needed to be comfortable and happy guests. We loved the location and enjoyed the 10-minute walk back to the house after indulging in too many tacos! Haha! Our stay was during the beginning of rainy season, so there were a few leaks that Utley was in the process of having repaired, but it didn't affect us. It was like staying in a luxurious treehouse with a million-dollar view.
