LA CASITA CELESTIAL, as the name implies, is a Heavenly Place. From the moment you approach the stone-embedded welcoming mat, you’ll know that you are in for a “stellar” experience.
Its GRACIOUS CENTRAL ROOM is filled with stars – and a very comfortable sitting area, a high-definition, large-screen television with American and Canadian programming, a DVD player, wi-fi, a cozy kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, and an eclectic library with books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics and tourist attractions, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts.
A large sliding glass door allows you to walk onto THE TERRACE WITH ITS MAGNIFICENT PALAPA, a thatched roof structure used since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs to capture sea breezes and keep COOL.
Under the palapa is your own private, cooling plunge pool, and classic equipal furniture for dining or relaxing. To the south you see the Pacific; to the east and west, the lush jungle with its fascinating birds and butterflies.
There are TWO BEDROOMS, each with its own bath and distinctive character, filled with works of Mexican artists from all around the country. Keeping with the celestial theme, one bedroom celebrates the sun rising from the east, with roosters standing as a mute reminder that there is a great day a-dawning. The other celebrates the moon shining out over the Gulf of Cortez with owls keeping watch over your deep and restful sleep. To aid in that sleep, both bedrooms are air-conditioned.
CASITA CELESTIAL is part of a three-house villa -- VILLA DE VISTAS (The House of Views). LA CASA QUE CANTA (The House that Sings – 6000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 4 baths) sits on the top of the hill. EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle – 900 sq. ft – two bedrooms, one bath) is nestled into the hillside.

A note from Melissa and Bill Roberts:
Although we know you will be pampered by our staff in San Pancho, we also want you to know a bit about us. We have lived most of our adult life in Middletown, Connecticut, where Melissa has been a school social worker and Bill a clergyman, and then a consultant. When we were in our thirties with three young sons we built a home on Cape Cod, which became a very special place for our family. But as the boys grew up, moved away to the west coast, and had children of their own, we decided to relocate our vacation home in a place more convenient for them. We found this precious little pueblo called San Pancho and built a very impressive home there. Actually, we built three inter-connected homes.
We will say more about the town and our homes in a moment, but we want to underscore how important both friends and family are to us. We like to think that anyone who rents will also value friends and family and cherish this exquisite vacation home.
San Pancho. The Jewel of the Mexican Rivera. The Cultural Center of the State of Nayarit. A charming little Mexican town which has not lost its character even as it has provided its hospitality to a relatively small group of Americans and Canadians. We are so grateful for the welcome we have received from the folks who have lived here for generations. But we also pleased to be part of an expatriate community which respects the people and the traditions of the Mexicans.
We worked with three architects in designing this house. Part of the reason we had so many is that we were determined that you could create characteristics in a single building project which, on the surface, might seem contradictory. But we believe we have been successful in pulling things together. Some examples:
1) The house is utterly open to the natural world, just spilling out into the jungle and overseeing the Gulf of Cortez; yet is can be closed up almost totally, protecting us and provding us with wonderfully intimate places to talk, and eat, and read, and just BE.
2) Our home is really three homes, which means you can have a large group here, BUT you can also use it as a quiet place for a romantic getaway for two.
3) All three houses have high quality appliances, modern cooking conveniences and utensils, and purified water, excellent airconditioning, BUT the glassware and the serving dishes, the furniture and the woodworking, the lights and the tiling -- all things that allow us to show off the exquisite Mexican craftsmanship that we have discovered in traveling through the country.
4) We are quite close to the beach and to town, but we are far enough away and are so totally self-sufficient (what with three pools) that we avoid the noise and the dust and even the traffic of this bustling little pueblo.
The CASITA CELESTIAL IS A FIVE-MINUTE WALK TO THE BEAUTIFUL SAN PANCHO BEACH!
It is a twenty-minute walk to the center of the pueblo.
It is situated in a beautiful jungle garden which includes a hammock grove and also a deck for sitting and sunning.
It is part of a three-house villa. You might want to look at the VRBO sites # 244889 and 283934.
Finally, we want you to know that the CASITA is beautifully appointed. Every room has Mexican artsand crafts that were commissioned just to carry out the theme of a little house that sits in a jungle and celebrates the heavens -- stars, sun, moon.
