AWESOME CASA POLO - IN THE SWEETEST TOWN IN MEXICO, SAN PANCHO

Sayulita House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6), WIFI, Plunge Pool, garden, 2 terraces

Casa Polo is a sweet home in the fishing village of San Pancho (officially: San Francisco) on a lazy cul-de-sac . It is affectionately named after the adjacent polo field where, before they moved to their new field, we caught glimpses of magnificent horses and bi-weekly polo matches. Our house was designed to be a haven with three primary concerns; privacy, layers of public spaces and cooling. For cooling we have overhangs and orientation to shade the sun and whisk in a cool tropical breeze.

*Two king master suites have dedicated baths, closets and privacy.

*There are two second-floor decks, one with chaises -private for the master suite and one overlooking life in the lane, with charcoal BBQ, benches and a picnic table. These are great for reading, sunning, eating or partying.

*The kitchen/dining overlook the living room: both overlook the cooling plunge pool with small deck.

Older children are very welcomed, however due to unprotected stairwell and ladder, the house is unsuitable for toddlers and rambunctious kids(and adults :-).

San Pancho is wonderful for people who love the ocean without the overwhelm of tourists or refinery. The beach itself is 1.8 miles long, an oasis of empty white sand. Near main street, the beach has clusters of people where a few local restaurants serve lunch, dinner and drinks. In either direction the beach is unpopulated except for New Years and Easter. On the left end is the good surf and the fishing pangas. You can ask fishermen to take you deep sea fishing. Occasionally the national Mexican surf championships is here. At the right end is the occasional surf caster or boogie boarder.

We love our small mixed neighborhood of friendly folks, both Mexican and Gringo. Our un-trafficed cul-de-sac has a particularly relaxed feeling while still giving an authentic Mexican experience. We walk or bike (rent) everywhere. The ocean is only 3/4 mile and almost everything you could want is between here and there: fine restaurants, taco stands, the EntreAmigo community center, shopping, bars, and soccer field. Las Huertas Golf Club is a mile away: they rent fine clubs for men and women. Just walking to the ocean, taking a swim and having lunch under a palapa near the beach is our idea of fun. My husband has discovered mountain motorcycle touring. I enjoy yoga classes and I'm just experimenting with SUP surfing. We love both cooking at home and the amazing restaurants here. Our kids love surfing. A favorite part of the day is at sunset when locals and gringos come together on the beach with babies or margaritas in tow. Horses go by for a sunset riding tour. Eyes are peeled for birds, whales, and butterflies while sipping cold drinks and watching the friendly activity.

The San Pancho Music Festival is a huge draw the last weekend each February. It is a true community affair from school kids to world class performers. It is organized by musician and recording legend Charles Eller - think Putumayo Records. The big question is will he open a studio here one day? Amazing statistic: the owners of 3 American recording studios own houses in tiny SP.

Exploring the varied coastline is engaging with unique villages, jungle ruins, natural hot springs, a village where prime surf is reachable only by boat, and farmers markets, just to name a few. Sayulita is great for night life; Punta Mita for snorkeling, whale watching &, fishing; La Penita for its Thursday morning market, and Puerto Vallarta for everything city.

A huge bonus while at Casa Polo is our multi-talented and bilingual manager, Abigail. Through her you can arrange in-home massages, foot reflexology, cooking, private yoga or cooking classes, taxi and delivered groceries. You can ask her for references for bike rentals, tours and more. She is a talented chef and massage/health practitioner.

Services included:

Maid service - midweek on 6-7 day rentals (more can be arranged)

Gardener - three days per week

Guestbook comments from the manager
Happy New Year's greetings.



Please forgive the tardiness of this note- somehow the re-entry was more challenging than ever!



This is, no doubt, because both Michael and I had such a wonderful time in San Pancho. While we'd be in the town about 12 years ago- to have pizza- we never took in the big picture. What a lovely town, with such spirit and friendliness. I cannot wait to return.



We loved EntreAmigo and visited several times to drink in the culture and see the close interaction of both natives and "gringos". Adored the recycled "art" and the crafts and all the efforts being made there to educate and nurture a real sense of community. We drove to Sayulita one day and scurried away in horror at what that sweet town has become- yikes!



We loved your gorgeous house and were so comfortable there. We spent countless hours on the upper deck reading, eating and enjoying the view.



We're especially grateful to Abi and Carlos for their attention and friendship throughout our stay.



Thank you for all that you did to make our stay such a memorable one. We hope to be back soon.

Dorothy Reilly purchased this house in 2007

After buying a spectacular seaside property 3 mi. out of town to build our dream house, we planned to first build a spec house in the village to fund construction of our dream house. To our surprise, when Casa Polo was complete, we discovered we loved living in the village more than ocean side & now our seaside lot is going on the market.

Lots of privacy, great manager, plunge pool, close to EntreAmigo community center, end of cul-de-sac.

CASA POLO RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Lovely retreat after a day at a nearby beach, or exploring the local village. Take a cool dip in the refreshing plunge pool in the quiet flower garden. Second floor terrace provides views of the surrounding area and cool breezes. Perfect for relaxing with a margarita and watching the sunset. For those needing activity, there is a high end ping pong table, but I liked the comfortable chairs for time with a good book. Loved this place!!

A DELIGHTFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Casa Polo was a both a wonderful retreat from the busy working world and a great base to explore this interesting section of Mexico's coast. Private and serene, it's just a moments walk to the village Main Street. Nice restaurants and beautiful beaches are both within walking distance. I highly recommend visiting this charming Mexican village and staying at Casa Polo. Almost forgot, friendly, interesting and very nicely maintained nine hole golf course is a five minute drive away. Played twice and loved it.

BEST WAY TO ENJOY SAN PANCHO!

  • 5 of 5
This sweet three bedroom stucco rental is full of personality and charm. Very comfortable, perfectly outfitted, maintenance free and fun! Enjoyed a great breakfast place called Maria's, several leisurely walks to the ocean followed by a refreshing dip in the dipping pool situated in the open indoor garden. Wifi was so appreciated as were the gentle breezes, ceiling fans, and outdoor ambience watching the moon rise on the roof terrace, all within a few blocks of town.. highly recommend as a great get away to enjoy the area.

LOVELY VILLA

  • 5 of 5
You'll want to live here. This house is simply delightful to be in. The privacy of the center courtyard and pool allows you to shut the world out, but soak up the sun. Its openness allows for splendid breezes and beautiful light.

Being just a stone's throw away from the main street, you feel part of the place, but on your own terms. With the heart of town a short walk away, a pleasant stroll can take you to delicious food, sandy beaches or whatever else you might need. You feel part of the place with your own space to be as you like.

The pictures don't quite do it justice. The descriptions are accurate and the place was immaculately maintained. I would happily have any of my friends or family stay here (and suggest they take me with them).

SECLUDED ADOBE ABODE

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this Casa Polo justice! My boyfriend and I just stayed at this gorgeous house for a week and had a wonderful time. The house is designed masterfully, affording complete privacy while incorporating nature and open air within it's walls, with multiple balconies to sunbathe and entertain. The little pool in the ground floor courtyard is perfect for a refreshing dip after coming back from the beach and other adventures. Lighting all around gives multiple levels of ambiance and can be adjusted for a beautiful romantic evening. The housekeeper Abi is a pleasure to communicate with and will even cook for your convenience. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back next year.
