Guestbook comments from the owner

Nuestro Sueño is an unbelievable place. The views from the terraces alone justifies the entire trip. This is not a hotel ocean view where you stick your head out the window to see the water; this is 300 degrees of unobstructed views of jungle mountains and the Pacific Ocean. We spent most of our time there enjoying the breeze which blows almost constantly. Your trip could be a complete success without leaving that spot, and after a couple of Federico's special margaritas you may not be able to leave anyway. But if you didn't leave the terraces you would miss out on the huevos rancheros at Celia's, which is something you really do not want to miss. I promise. San Pancho is not for everyone. It is not Cancun, or Puerto Vallarta or anything like that. There are no big restaurants or bars, and you will have to be as patient with people's limited English as they will always be with your limited Spanish. It is quiet ; it is relaxing; it can be adventurous (If you choose to explore and snorkel at some of the remote beaches in the area, that is. There were more sting rays than I have ever seen before, not dangerous, but amazing to see. The roads are rough, but the destinations are definitely worthwhile). I have been back just two days and it is a place I miss already

Game Changer in San Pancho!

  • 5 of 5

Our seven weeks in this delightful hilltop house was nothing short of soul-renewing. San Pancho is a magical town and Nuestro Sueño is *the* spot to soak in all the mesmerizing sounds and views.

Federico, our gracious host, soon became family. He met us at the house and personally drove us around the village. He has a wealth of knowledge about where to go and what to do in San Pancho-- and really Mexico. Federico is very responsive and proactive, incredibly generous and worldly.

Memories of sitting on the porch after dinner to catch the sunset is etched in our family's memories. The rooftop area offers even more fantastic views of the enchanting mountains on one side, the beach on the other, and the ethereally lit sky with stars that light your path.

The king size bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable with quality sheets. The small second bedroom is upstairs and has its own balcony. This is an open concept house that suits families well. There is also an independent studio apartment downstairs for additional people which as its own bathroom- perfect for multi-family vacations. The two nicely appointed full bathrooms in the main house have stand up showers that have great water pressure-- a rare treat. The fully equipped kitchen let us cook many meals with joy.

The house has high ceilings and large sliding glass doors, so the main living room is bathed in natural light and stays cool all day thanks to strong ceiling fans. We worked from home some, and you cannot ask for a better office view than the one from the dinning room table. The wifi was fast and reliable; and there is a house phone for local calls and to the US.

We loved being in San Pancho but away from the cacophony of the busy downtown. The hill up to the house is great exercise! We felt so healthy by the time we left. The walk to the main street is short and we met a lot of our friendly local neighbors. There is a small bodega right down the hill for basic staples-- milk, honey, onions. This was super convenient for those days you run out something.

Teresa came to see us once a week for a thorough cleaning. She and her dad, Senor Miguel (who takes care of the beautiful grounds), embody the spirit of San Pancho: graceful, hard-working, kind and welcoming.

Nuestro Sueño is truly a retreat in the truest sense. The house, like the village, has soul. It is where you make memories; it's where you become part of the magic and tapestry.

we love it!

  • 5 of 5

Federico's place is a little bit of paradise. This is our third time visiting Villa Nuestro Sueno. San Pancho is changing (Salulito is encroaching which may or may not appeal to you) but there are still chickens in the streets, guys riding horses, and just to the north there are great beaches with mix of Canadian and Mexican tourists plus Federico can recommend a couple of fabulous non-tourist beaches as well. It is easy to just hang out at his place and relax, look out at the ocean and jungle. Private and comfortable with great light. Federico is easy to reach when we needed him. We'll be back

The property was stunning. The views spectacular! The house was clean, well equipped and private. We spent time in the AM on the roof catching the sun and in the evening catching the sunset. We did not rent a car or golf cart to get around town but instead walked everywhere. It took us 15 minutes to get to the beach. The hill up to the property is steep but great exercise. Federico was available by phone and very helpful. Would return this property.

Beautiful home on a hill

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at Frederico's home. The views from the balcony were stunning, which is where we spent most of our time. Frederico was very easy to get in touch with and his directions for finding the home were clear.

The house keeper, Theresa, met us for check-in. She was very kind, and patient with my elementary Spanish. The grounds keeper, Miguel, was equally kind and was also happy to have a conversation and further let me practice my Spanish speaking skills. :)

Keep in mind this home is at one of the highest points in San Pancho, and entails walking up 2 fairly steep hills. Not a problem for us, but may be for someone with health or mobility issues.

For a few nights one of the neighbors played music louder than we liked. Not a problem with the property, per se, but goes along with being in town. We ended up getting ear plugs, which helped.

The home is tastefully furnished and we were provided plenty of towels and drinking water.

My favorite part of the trip was definitely enjoying breakfast on the balcony. The kitchen was functional, and big enough for two people to work.

The closest tienda, Marie's, was perfect for for quick beer or ice runs; and definitely check out Gallo's restaurant, right at the bottom of the hill, for an awesome authentic breakfast or lunch.

We would definitely consider staying there again!

Beautiful view, lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely- lots of fresh air and amazing views of the mountains and sea. We enjoyed many beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the various balconies. The house is equipped with everything you'll need including a kitchen and comfortable chairs for taking in the views. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to town and 20 minute walk to the beach. San Pancho had lots of delicious food options and is much less touristy than nearby Sayulita. Overall it was a great trip, and I'd highly recommend Casa Nuestra Suena.

A great, relaxing holiday !

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back from our third visit to Nuestro Sueño. This stunning villa offers indoor/outdoor harmony and comfort at the highest level. This place is perfectly situated to admire the view of the sea and town. This house was set up perfect for our family of 6 members. The house is fantastic with everything you would need to have a great, relaxing holiday. The staff were lovely, providing a 5 star experience with ease and comfort.

We truly had an amazing experience and look forward to going back!
