A week at Casa de las Estrellas

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderfully laid out house only 5 stairs from the beach. The upstairs bedrooms are large and beautiful with large sliding glass doors and balconies that have unobstructed views of the Pacific. The beds are large and firm (mattress on concrete) but are quite comfortable. All four bathrooms have walk-in showers. The kitchen has adequate utensils, fridge, micro, gas stove and oven. A 5 gal water dispenser provides purified water. Water is cheap at the local store (El Indio). The living area has a large table and chairs as well as a sofa and easy chairs. A large glass door leads to a wonderful raised patio area with a small swimming pool and palapa style seating area. It is a great place for afternoon cocktails and evening sunsets. A separate den has two easy chairs and a hide-a-bed sofa. This room also has a small TV with DVD and tape players. (I would recommend sleeping on the air bed as opposed to the hide-a-bed :) ) The house is in a very secluded area since it is at the north end of the beach. You feel like you are in a world of your own. I would recommend having a rental car for transportation into town since it is a walk of about a mile. The walk is pretty easy on the road or on the wet part of the the beach, but carrying groceries back to the house is a real task. Taxis are available and are pretty cheap but not as convenient as your own car. The garage houses a washer and dryer. That allowed us to pack much lighter this year. Maid service cleaned the house and made and/or changed the beds daily except weekends. Since you are on the beach you must deal with tracking in sand tho. There are great places to eat and drink within easy walking distance. Mar Plata is an upscale restaurant with great food and Costa Azul is a few hundred yards down the beach and offers a great swimming pool, drinks and very good food. (Club sandwich is out of this world!)
San Pancho is a wonderful town with beautiful, friendly people. It feels comfortable and safe. When we return in a couple of years, Casa de las Estrellas will be our first choice for housing. I believe that anyone would love to stay in this house.

Christmas in San Pancho

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Casa de las Estrellas over Christmas 2011 and had a fantastic time. The casa is spacious and clean. The local staff was attentive and responded to our needs immediately (of which there were few). The outdoor patio was awesome - table, chairs, lounge chairs, bbq grill, etc. The pool was a little cold in December, but I'm sure is perfect as the weather gets hotter. Every day the polo ponies would come racing down the beach for their afternoon exercise, which was really cool to see.

It's about a 20 minute walk into the Pueblo of San Pancho and unless you can figure out how to call a taxi (which we could not) they are not plentiful. There are no grocery shops in Costa Azul so plan accordingly. It was nice to sort of be away from the Pueblo though, as it was much quieter and we really felt like we were away from it all.

Overall we had a really nice time and are looking forward to going back!
