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.

About Melissa McCann
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
Why Melissa McCann chose San Francisco
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
