Casa del Risco is a one bedroom, open floor plan casita, perched 110 ft above a private cove beach, on your own private, walled ½ acre, with 180 degree coastal views, on the Pacific Ocean.
After passing through the iron entrance gate, through flowering gardens and giant palm trees, you descend down several garden steps over a wooden bridge and through an antique door into the casita. The casita is comprised of one bedroom, kitchen, double sink vanity, private WC and an outdoor shower accessible through a glass door. The private outdoor shower, where you may spend more time than expected, is partially enclosed on two sides, covered with a palapa roof and open to a raised garden on the third side. The breathtaking view from the shower includes the waves breaking on the beach & cliffs below as well as the coastline south to Sayulita. Opposite the foot of the bed are sliding doors and sliding screens to the balcony, with a palapa roof and palm tree supports, table and chairs. Breakfast, lunch or sunset dinner can be enjoyed here in total privacy without ever leaving home. Below the balcony is a tiled sun deck with a barbecue, wet-bar, chaise lounges and umbrella. By now you probably have guessed that this is not a place for children. There are several steep cliffs and drop-offs. The steps to the beach have a rope railing but the sunning patios have only planters. You will enjoy the feeling of being in the treetops with the flocks of pelicans that float on the air currents all day long, occasionally diving for fish below. Watch for whales just to the right of the property about 3/4 mile off shore. They like to spend the winter there too.
The property includes numerous patios for sunning or a deep shade garden patio under an ancient Fig tree, all with different spectacular views of the ocean and coastline. The beach below is accessible by traversing rustic steps across the hillside and down to the rocky shoreline and a beautiful sandy beach. The surf can be calm and azure blue to rough and huge waves crashing on the cliff side. During turtle season, leatherbacks have been seen laying their eggs on the full moon tide. The public beach is a short walk out the driveway and down the hill. From there you will find the 2 miles of beach with several restaurants and cafes. Fishing boats, for hire, moor at the far end of the beach. Kayaks can be rented as well at Costa Azul on the beach. If it’s a calm surf, you can paddle back to your private beach or further north along numerous coves.
The pueblo of San Pancho offers many fine restaurants. My favorite is Café del Mar, high on the hill, above town and MarPlata at the bottom of the hill by the beach. Also, the polo field has a fine restaurant where you can watch a Sunday polo match at sunset while having cocktails and dinner. After that you might just walk down the street and watch a soccer game on your way home or stroll through town and shop. If it’s lunch you’re after try the taco stand by the hospital or the one at the foot of the hill before Café del Mar. The next town south of San Pancho is Sayulita, visible from our property, looking south. In Sayulita, surfing is the big draw. Plan to have lunch under a palapa on the beach and watch the surfers that come from all over the world to compete at this location. My favorite lunch spot in Sayulita is actually in town above the village square for fish tacos, you can’t miss it.
