San Francisco House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Newly built three story Mediterranean style villa with unobstructed views overlooking the ocean and multiple lush Coco palms. Third story roof deck allows for panoramic view, sunset wine sipping and tranquil dining. Interior decor presents authentic rustic Mexican flare of fine furniture, tiling and adobe entry ways. Decorative ceiling, wall and floor pieces indigenous from all over Mexico lend to the feel of a true Mexico experience. Private garden throughout the property with secured entry and driveway allow comfort for freedom of children and family. For more information and the property blog, - type 'vistaceleste' into a google search.

Vista Celeste is just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta on the beautiful, secluded Nayarit coast. This beautiful close to ocean property consists of a three story house with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, heated pool and outdoor BBQ area.

This extraordinary property is situated 1/2 block from the unspoiled white sand beaches of San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit. Lush vegetation and palm trees surround the beautifully-landscaped grounds. Here you can enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking sunsets, migrating whales, playful dolphins, and sea turtles. There are a host of adventurous activities, including epic surf, pristine golf, and horseback riding at your disposal. This is the perfect destination for those who seek privacy, serenity, and/or adventure.

The charming grounds are private with key entry only and a serpentine wall securing it.

The villa is fully-equipped with all the amenities you will need to enjoy your Mexican getaway. Imagine yourself lying poolside listening to the waves crash on the shore or soaking in the jetted tub. Vista Celeste offers all that you need to relax, unwind, and enjoy a true hidden paradise.

The property is located right across from Costa Azul resort and next to Villas Paradise. The property is within walking distance of town, but is far enough away to steer clear of the daily crowds and noise. When in the small town of San Pancho, you can find many shops, grocers, and many restaurants to suit the taste of any family member. Do not miss the opportunity to mingle with the locals. They are very friendly and eager to practice their English with you. San Pancho itself is a picturesque Mexican fishing town with virtually no crime. It looks much as Puerto Vallarta did before it was discovered. Vista Celeste is professionally managed for guest's convenience.

For more information and availability please contact Nils and Denice Kristoffersen via email.

Why Nils Kristoffersen chose San Francisco

White beaches, warm waters and cobblestone streets all factored into the desire to be a part of San Pancho. Add in temperate weather, fantastic local cuisine and a friendly atmosphere, and the Kristoffersens couldn't be happier to own Vista Celeste.

The perfect getaway for any length of time

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more pleased as a first time user of VBRO. The property was everything promised and more, located just seconds from the beach and minutes from the most authentic, friendly Mexican town. The property manager was very attentive to any questions we had about the home (ie. Wifi password) or about our stay (ie. best things to do, best restaurant for breakfast, ect.). She even arranged for horses to come directly in front of the property on the beach for us to have a lovely ride. The layout was perfect and views were breath taking. If you are looking for a piece of paradise for a GREAT value in the heart of (not too touristy) Mexico, stay here!!

Perfect house for the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Vista Celeste is the perfect house for a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway, to my new favorite spot in Mexico. Great kitchen, well stocked with spices and other cooking basics, big fridge, water filter in the sink, comfy rooms, fantastic view and location—close enough to the beach, and I mean LITERALLY ACROSS THE STREET, we could see and hear the waves crashing ashore, yet far enough from town to be quiet and serene. And the pool...OMG, couldn't be better. Great, prompt and friendly service from Kimberly and Abel, who is about as nice a man as I've ever met. Safe as can be. I would go back every month if I could, and I definitely plan on bringing my kids. Can't say enough about how fabulous this place is.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our Casa! We're addicted to the views, great food and pool as well, though we'll confess an open bias since we own the house. We'll relay your words on to the team here, who sincerely enjoy making visits as comfortable as possible. Thank you for your kind words - we look forward to having you stay with us in the future!

The Perfect Gem in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Vista Celeste and we were quickly reminded why we came back. Vista Celeste is the perfect combination of modern convenience with a rustic flare for any guest. The first time we went, we had a romantic getaway, which was an experience we will never forget. This last time we came to San Pancho, we came with friends and Vista Celeste did not disappoint! Between the beautiful pool, the BBQ entertaining area and the helpful property manager Kim, who was ready and willing to help us fulfill any of our requests, this place was awesome!!! While PV has a robust nightlife and string of American hotels, San Pancho is safe, friendly and welcoming beach side town with residents willing to accommodate your every request. This is one Gem you shouldn't pass up!!

Perfectly peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Five of us had a week at Vista Celeste and we loved it. I would definitely recommend this house. Very comfortable, not so fancy that you feel uptight, but many nice amenities for your comfort and relaxation. The best parts are the amazing view, the sound of the surf, the access to the beach and to wonderful San Pancho, the gardens and the pool. All so great. It's important to keep in mind the you are at the ocean and in Mexico, so check your highest standards at the door. There is sand and dust, there are gecko's (yay!!!) there are spiders and mosquitos, the internet is slow (so what! Aren't you here to relax?). Bring good books, comfortable shoes (walking into town on cobblestones), your flip-flops (to take off and walk into town on the beach, so beautiful).

There were a few issues when we arrived, which mostly had to do with needing to remember where we are and to RELAX and let go. Abel, the man who deal with all problems is nearby and very wonderful and responsive. And the owner was open to my feedback. Enjoy.

In San Pancho, check out Baja Takeria (there salads are the best), and Maria's and, well so many places are good. Look for the turtle release around 630pm on the beach close to town. If you are a golfer, the golf course if beautiful. If you love birds, walk to the end of the beach, a little past town -- at the lagoon, and take the trek through the lagoon. Crazy lot of birds.

Forever Love Drunk on Vista Celeste

  • 5 of 5

I really am hard put to find words that will do justice to the perfection of Vista Celeste - nevertheless, here goes ��

If tranquility were a drug, Vista Celeste would be her name ...[and we're currently experiencing withdrawals of a gargantuan proportion]...

...from the moment you walk in her gates, you're awash with blissful serenity - amplified ten fold by the mandatory 3hr infinity pool experience that follows.

Her interior is immaculate, this lady's got the goods and isn't shy about sharing them...

...everything you could ever desire or require, from speedy//reliable internet, a bells and whistle kitchen [hello tortilla warmer!], to every TV channel known to man [well, myself at least] - her beds are comfy, her poolside lounges even more so.

Vista Celeste epitomises attention to detail, we didn't want for a single thing our entire time there [other than for more time of course ;) ]

Nils & Denice, the Owners are amazing to deal with, both so helpful and welcoming - no question too big, nor too small. Additionally, their team -Kim [Property Manager] is super efficient//prompt and Abel [Handyman//Jack Of All Trades] equally as so.

If you manage to drag yourself away from Vista Celeste's loving embrace, San Pancho is chock full of welcoming smiles, assorted and varied supplies, not to mention restaurants and cafes to suit all appetites [I follow a plant based//vegan diet and not only were there restaurants with options for me as a staple on their menus, but even the unlikeliest of food purveyors were more than willing to assist with specifically tailored meals]

Needless to say, we're head over heels & infinitely love drunk on her memory - cannot wait to see her again and fill the gaping hole she's left in our hearts.

Just 25 miles North of Puerto Vallarta, Vista Celeste lies in the small town of San Francisco (affectionately called San Pancho by the locals). Secluded in the lush Nayarit Riviera, San Francisco’s small town charm, cobblestone streets and friendly locals comprise a unique getaway from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern life. Across the street from the beach, and adjacent to a resort with restaurants and countless activities, Vista Celeste offers something for everyone.
