CASA MELISSA- OCEANFRONT, FABULOUS VIEWS, HEATED INFINITY POOL, PRIVATE TENNIS

San Francisco House Rental Photos and Description

Casa Melissa has 4 Bedrooms, w/detached 5th bdrm suite -4 Baths, (Sleeps 10 max)

Casa Melissa is a unique private estate featuring breathtaking 180 degree views of the Pacific. Located on a point overlooking the Pacific, the views from Casa Melissa are uninterrupted and spectacular. Yet you can easily walk to San Pancho on the wide sandy beach

To the north and south you can view the coastline from Punta Sayulita in the south to the outline of San Blas to the north. If you move your gaze to the east, you can view the beautiful tropical palm jungle.

Casa Melissa is tropical Mexico as you dreamed it would be. During the day watch whales, dolphins and rays pass below as you enjoy a drink on the terrace or relax in the pool. In the evening the sunsets are breathtaking!

Amenities of the villa include 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a private lighted tennis court and a heated 'Infinity' swimming pool.

All rooms in Casa Melissa have ocean views.

The Casita, a 5th bedroom suite, features a queen bed, ceiling fan, air conditioner, full bathroom and a kitchenette. Its large ocean view terrace and overlooks the tennis court.

Casa Melissa is for those who want to get away from it all, and to relax in luxury surrounded by the natural beauty of the Mexican Riviera.

All the bedrooms are air conditioned and the property has a whole house water purification system. Plus the bedrooms have ipod docking stations. All windows have screens to keep out the bugs during the summer months. And all rooms have ceiling fans.

Maid service is included Monday through Saturday and a cook is available to prepare dinner Monday through Friday evenings. You just pay for the groceries!

The staff will even grocery shop for you before you arrive - again, you just pay for the groceries!

We want to make your stay at Casa Melissa a true vacation.

Whales migrate along the coast between December and April. See them from the terrace or get close-up on a boat in the Bay of Banderas.

Nature lovers can enjoy tropical birds flying by at eye level or go on a bird watching tour. See iguanas, geckos, tejones or tour the turtle nursery and help release baby turtles into the ocean. Ocean kayaking, snorkeling and hiking in the palm jungle or walking on the mile long sandy beach are a few of the best ways to enjoy this tropical paradise.

The small town of San Pancho is unique. It has an active polo community and a polo field, a yoga center, a nine hole golf course and fabulous restaurants. There are many shops and a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance of Casa Melissa.

Events during the year include a national surfing contest, annual music festival, and Art Walk Friday nights in the winter. Or rent a car and explore the whole area.

Besides fabulous views, Casa Melissa has a private lighted tennis court. The tennis court is a special Australian product that is used in the tropics, a synthetic grass surface topped with sand. It plays like clay but is ready for play 15 minutes after a rain shower (very important in the summer). The other great thing about the court is that it slows the game down - great if you are playing mixed doubles. What makes this tennis court unique is that it has an ocean view! Try not to get distracted by the pelicans flying by as you play the game.

Casa Melissa has three bedrooms for the quoted price. The fourth bedroom in the main house and the nearby Casita bedroom suite are available for rent for an extra charge. The Casita is only rented as part of Casa Melissa. You would never share this beautiful estate with other renters.

We are a family of 4. We have always spent part of the winter in Mexico. When we discovered San Pancho we knew this was the place where we wanted to build a house. We built the house to fit our family, so each of the kids had their own bedroom and could have a friend come down and vacation with them, plus we have an extra bedroom for the parents.

Melissa McCann purchased this house in 1999

We were lucky enough to visit San Pancho before it was 'discovered'. When we saw this property with its incredible views we knew we had to buy it. We see more of the coast/ocean then any other property in the area! It is magical. Arriving at Casa Melissa and looking at the view is immediately relaxing. My favorite thing is to swim in the pool mesmerized by the views in each direction.

My husband and I disagreed on only one thing - which was the better view, the view to the south looking at Punta Sayulita or the view to the north looking at a series of small beaches. So most of the house has views to the south, but the master bedroom has views in both directions and has a balcony on the north side as well as opening to the terrace on the south side. In the mornings I sit in the dining room looking north and he sits at the opposite end of the table looking south. We worked it out.

Besides the fabulous view, we had to have a tennis court. We built one made out of an Australian product that is sand and astro-turf. It plays like clay but is ready for play 15 minutes after the rain ends (very important in the summer). The other great thing about the court is that it slows the game down - great if you are playing mixed doubles or singles with your husband. Oh and the other great thing about the court is that it has an ocean view. Try not to get distracted by the pelicans flying over the ocean as you play the game.

Casa Melissa

  • 5 of 5
We have visited Casa Melissa several times and it remains our favorite family getaway. Isabel and her family do a wonderful job of taking care of anything that we need -- I think they know everyone in town -- and having Yeyo cook dinner is a wonderful experience, except that his chile rellenos have pretty well ruined the chance of our ordering them anywhere else. Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the surf makes it seem like you are a world away. We will be back again.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
Our three-generation family stayed at Casa Melissa last month and I will never find enough nice things to say about it! Even before our vacation started, Melissa was incredibly helpful in providing us with informaton about the area and making sure the bedrooms were set up in the way that would most comfortably accomodate our 7-person family.

Our arrival on the property is something we will never forget. From the moment we entered through the gates we were amazed at the beauty of the grounds and the home. Then walking around to the front to see the infinity pool looking over the ocean made us all giddy. Truly, the pictures to not do this view justice. The house itself is extremely comfortable and provides the perfect blend of space for privacy and for gathering. The kitchen is extremely well-appointed - in fact we cooked most of our meals at the house. And Isabel and the rest of the staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and efficient.

While we spent the majority of our time lounging by the infinity pool, enjoying the sunshine, incredible bird watching and unbelievable view of the water beneath, we did venture into San Pancho and Sayulita (just a short drive away) where the locals were wonderful and where we found some top-notch restaurants.

I could not have wished for or even imagined a better place to spend our vacation than Casa Melissa.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family [grandparents, grown kids and 4 grandchildren] chose Casa Melissa because of three things: LOCATION - Casa Melissa is near Puerta Vallarta airport, yet the house is peaceful and quiet sitting high atop a hill overlooking the sea just outside the charming village of San Pancho. CHILD FRIENDLY - We have 4 children in our family [15 months to 8 years] so a pool was essential. The immaculately clean infinity pool had grassy areas around it where the children could play. The tennis court was a bonus! – THE WONDERFUL MELISSA of Casa Melissa gave us quick and thorough responses to our many questions. We could tell she genuinely cared about our concerns and gave us so much useful information to make our stay successful. The house is very comfortable with large rooms and every bedroom has it's own bathroom. We rented the Casita as well for our sister-in-law who visited for a few nights. The friendly staff is very attentive and helpful in every way. The weather was overcast and very humid for some of our stay, but we loved jumping in the pool to cool off! The children practically lived in the pool and didn't seem to mind the humidity because they were constantly in the water! Thanks to the tennis court, my sports - minded 5 year old grandson developed a passion for tennis. We highly recommend Casa Melissa for families with children. Thanks so much Melissa!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review Casa Melissa. I really appreciate it. I am glad the young children loved the pool. Five is not too young to start a tennis career!
I am glad I could answer all your questions about the house and the area. We hope you will return again soon. Maybe in the less humid winter months.

Top Notch Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Lots of attention to detail in this house, and the end result is highly enjoyable. Beautiful, private, and relaxing.

--The grounds are well-manicured, and include plenty of flowering plants and even areas of green lawn surrounding the house (a rarity in Mexico). Expect visits from various species of birds and curious tejones.

--The pool was flawless. Perfectly clean, and always heated to the exact perfect temperature, day and night, without us having to fuss with anything, or call anyone for help (many houses in this area have pools, but some of them are simply too cold to swim in for part of the year!). You can relax in the pool and watch the whales in the ocean. Bathrooms and closets are stocked with numerous towels.

--Zero trouble whatsoever with the internet connection.

--The owner was highly available via email to answer any questions we had.

--The house includes a comprehensive information packet with details on activities in the area, reviews of restaurants, information on hikes, etc.

--The groundskeeper, maid, chef, and house manager were helpful and professional, without being intrusive.

--The house is perched on a cliff (incredible views), but there is a beach within walking distance (or a short drive).

--Views from every room, and king-size beds in every bedroom.
