BEAUTIFUL COMPOUND IN COASTAL LIVING '07 THAT CAN SLEEP 10

San Francisco House Rental Photos and Description

3 seperate units, two 2 bedroom, 2 bath and one 1 bedroom, 1 bath (Sleeps 10)

Las casitas bonitas,part of an idyllic beach front retreat, is located in the Costa Azul area in the beautiful and friendly village of San Francisco (San Pancho) nestled between the Sierra Madre and the Pacific. Just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, this upgraded property consits of two 2 bedroom, 2 bath houses and one 1 bedroom, 1 bath casita that are fully equipped and tastefully decorated with antiquities from around the world.

In the upper unit, a spacious living/dining room with 14 foot ceilings opens up onto the terrace with a negative edge plunge pool overlooking the ocean and pristine beach. Enjoy sunsets year round, relax, have a massage on the terrace or have a private chef come prepare a traditional meal for you and your guests.

The middle one bedroom unit, has a small plunge pool, incredible views to the beach and a large gringo tree growing in the middle of the bathroom. It's a perfect retreat for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.

The lower beach house, has the largest pool and an upstairs bedroom that opens up to the beach beyond. This house is literally on the beach.

The breathtaking beach at your backdoor is never crowded (almost deserted) and free of annoying vendors. Costa Azul Resort is steps away and offers an array of adventure activities. They have a huge pool, with swim up bar, and their restaurant/bar is right on the water. A nine hole golf course is just steps away as well. One of the best restaurants in town, Mar Plata, is just across the street. In the pueblo of San Pancho, which is about a 10-15 minute stroll away, you can experience the quaint charm of Mexico, including excellent places to eat, taco stands, artisans, and interesting shops.

Las Casitas Bonitas is exactly what the name implies, a beautiful retreat where the leisurely pace of life can be fully enjoyed. This property was featured in Costal Living Magazine December 07 which speaks for itself. For more information, please contact us directly. If your desired dates are blocked, please contact me for availability.

I spent many months in Mexico growing up sailing with my family. I've always loved the country and people. My partner Bob and I decided to invest when the opportunity arose. He now lives in LA directing live television, and rarely goes. Maybe too much sand and that long 2 hour commute! I on the other hand live in NY, and go any chance I can. Bob is holding Kassi, who is known in the town more than either of us. If she's not at home, she can usually be found at one of the local restaurants enjoying a weiney martini. They actually stock hot dogs for her when she's in town.

Pat Lloyd purchased this house in 2002

Just look at our back yard! The houses aren't too shaby either.

Pilar, our housekeeper/cook. To me, she outshines the incredible views and tasteful accomodations. Nobody on Earth can make you smile like she does. I give her more credit for our success than myself for building and developing this unique space.

Disappointing

This is definitely a beautiful place, and has been one of our favorites until our last visit. From the first time we visited until the second visit, the maintenance had slipped considerably. Lights were out or broken, rust had settled in, there were so many bugs in the light shades that if you bumped it they fell out everywhere. We felt bad that one of our favorite places was no longer our favorite. Sadly, we will look for another place to stay next time. We contacted the owner and told him about our stay, but he did not seem responsive to our feedback which was given hoping that changes would be made.

This is our 5th stay at this incredible property and each time it is better than the time before. The location is perfect with your own private beach and just minutes from the quaint town of San Pancho to enjoy fabulous meals, music and shopping. We spent lots of time basking by the pool, cervesa and kindle in hand. We had takeout from Cafe Del Mar (5 star) and watched the sun set on the beach. This year we enjoyed a delicious meal and polo match at the Patron Polo Club. We went fishing with Elme,-Y-Knot Charters, in Punta Mita and after catching Dorado and sail fish, then dining at Margarita's where they prepared our Dorado 10 yummy different ways. Lots of leftovers to enjoy the rest of the week. We also spent a day hiking and eating pies in Yelapa (a must do). Jeff, as always, is wonderful to work with and Pilar does an outstanding job keeping the casitas tidy and clean. December the weather is absolutely perfect, not too hot during the day and comfortable in the evening. This is Paradise and we will be back!!!! Thank you Jeff for your sharing your place again with Montanans and for your exceptional generosity.

Four of us shared Casa Tranquila, while 5 other friends stayed in the casitas below.

This is just an ideal location, quiet, about 12 minutes walk to the little town of San Pancho, just above the beach. The houses are all beautiful, with comfortable lounging spaces, comfy & spacious bedrooms, and well-equipped kitchens. The gardens, too, are glorious. All the staff were lovely and helpful.

We would highly recommend this spot and hope to return soon!

We have recently returned from our visit at Casa Tranquila and still can't get it out of our minds! Jeff has definitely created a paradise. We are in love with San Pancho and have already made reservations to come back next year. The staff is great and the dinners cooked for us were, well what can I say, truly wonderful! What a great place to vacation!

We had no idea we were in for such an adventure. The villa was wonderful! We were in the villa on the beach, Casa Amorita. It was great. We had the upstairs room (w/o air, but a big fan) without windows, but ocean breezes. Saw a great thunder and lightening storm and woke up with a big orange tabby cat between us. I guess the thunder scared him. The pool surrounding the kitchen was much loved and used by our grandson. Gotta see the bathrooms!! We are definitely coming back. The little store on the way out town on the main road has some of the most beautiful pottery and best prices you'll see. We had to go to Wal-Mart and buy another couple suitcases to get everything home. We had dinner cooked for us one evening and it was excellent.
Very clean and well kept and beautiful grounds.
Just a note: If you see cars going up and down the beach every couple hours, stopping, digging and continuing on don't be alarmed, they dig up turtle eggs to incubate until they hatch, then have a "Send the little turtles loose" ceremony on the beach.

Thank you Jeff, we had a great stay!!
