San Francisco House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

NOTE: Please allow additional time for reply as we are transitioning management. Thank you!

Casita Brisa del Mar, or "little house of the ocean breeze," is a two bedroom, one bath bungalow. This private single family residence is situated in a new development in the heart of the quaint seaside village of San Francisco, which the locals lovingly call San Pancho.

This charming casita features a spacious living area, full kitchen, two sizeable bedrooms (one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin size beds) and a full bath with walk-in shower. The casita is fully furnished with genuine Mexican décor and folk art.

Relax, unwind and visit with friends on the secluded back patio with thatch overhang. The main floor opens out to a walled-in, private backyard filled with tropical plants and flowers. The upstairs palapa offers shade as well as terrific views of the surrounding mountains, jungle and the town, the sweetest in Mexico if not all the world ...

Casita Brisa del Mar allows guests to enjoy a tranquil, tropical retreat or be immersed in the town's rich, vibrant culture. Just steps from shops, boutiques and some of the finest restaurants on the Mexican Riviera as well as a few short blocks to San Pancho's pristine beaches.

Weekly rental includes twice weekly maid service (gratuity extra and appreciated). A cook is available for an additional charge.

Nice House but no Comfortable Furniture to Sit and Relax

  • 3 of 5

Great Location, clean, responsive manager, nice people, dipping pool is nice.

As stated by a recent review and I agree, my only complaint is in the living room there is only an old loveseat and a chair, neither of which were comfortable to even sit in and read a book... No TV , not such a big deal but the cost of a tv these days is nada and the living room furniture needs replacement badly....

Owner's Response: I sincerely regret you didn't enjoy your stay with us more. I'm in agreement about more comfortable living room furniture. There has been a reason for the seating. You would be surprised by the number of inquiries we receive to rent to parties of six, eight, even 10 or more people. Ours is just a modest two bed, one bath casita. Thus limiting accommodation to appropriate size parties is important for many reasons. I'm sure there are better ways to address this besides not having a comfy sofa one can sleep on, and we intend to upgrade our living room furniture within the coming weeks. We intentionally do not have a TV at the house. This is more for our preference of appreciating being fully present while relaxing in the little slice of paradise that is San Pancho. I want to avoid having to continually replace electronics regardless of how cheap they are.

Private and sweet

  • 4 of 5

The casita is a great little spot to stay in San Pancho. Close to town - easy walk to shops, restaurants, beach. Loved the private backyard and dipping pool. We got to see the Cirque de la Niño's show on our last night there. Only thing missing was comfortable seating - inside and out - and the roof top patio should be set up for those sunset happy hours. Great place - clean and well managed.

Wonderful Little House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (wife and two kids, three and under) enjoyed our time immensely in this wonderful little house! It was exactly as advertised and met all of our expectations. Half of our time was spent in the pool, which was cleaned regularly. The house was a 5-10 min walk to everything in town (beach, restaurants, grocery stores) We have fallen in love with the town of San Pancho and hope to return in the future. The homeowner, Brad, was very helpful, answering all our questions and concerns and the property manager, Daly, was also very helpful, answering all our questions, setting up taxis, etc. Daly even mailed our daughter's favourite sippy cup that we forgot. Brad and Daly have gone above and beyond! I would recommend this rental property to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing time in a quaint, seaside Mexican town!!

Great Casita, Great Town, Great Value!

  • 4 of 5

We've been visiting San Pancho for several years now, and we were thrilled to find Casita Brisa del Mar -- we'll definitely consider returning in future years. It's a small but very well kept and well appointed casita, only a few blocks from the beach and even closer to the community center EntreAmigos, which is a MUST for anyone with kids! Plus, it is such an easy walk to the many great restaurants in San Pancho! Daly manages the property, and she was extremely helpful and responsive to any requests. The reservation process and communication with Brad (the owner) was super easy and pleasant. The kitchen has an oven (which is great) but doesn't have a microwave (not a problem for us), and has some really great small amenities like a French Press for coffee and a really nice blender. The casita has a very nice collection of Mexican pottery, glassware, and dishware -- which you definitely don't find in every house in Mexico. Daly also supplied purified water for the duration of our visit, which was also a nice perk that you definitely don't get everywhere! The backyard and pool area is nice but small, and while the pool is chilly (as they all are!) it was great to cool off in after a day at the beach. The street is a quiet one, and the entire experience was relaxing and easy -- which was just what we were looking for! There's no TV (again: not a problem at ALL for us), but it does have a nice I-Pod dock and speakers. The only suggestions would be to upgrade the pool chairs, and to maybe add some stuff to the palapa, which could be really nice but is a little barren right now. Small things, in what was an otherwise wonderful visit -- we hope to return again soon! Thanks for sharing your house with us, Brad!

Perfect place for young families

  • 5 of 5

We spent two great weeks here in May/June. Our two young daughters -- one is four, the other is 18 months -- absolutely loved the dipping pool. It was a great way to cool off in the sweltering heat.

We liked the layout of the house: big open plan kitchen/living area, with the two bedrooms off to the side. We really liked the furnishings and the beautiful Mexican art and crafts that filled the house. So much so that we bought a load of it in the Mexican artesania shop around the corner.

San Pancho is also a charming village and we would enjoy the walk through the town to the beach. There are plenty of taquerias in town (our favorite was the one next to the Mini Super Mary store), and we often enjoyed sitting on one of the two or three beachfront restaurants, watching the sun sink into the ocean with a drink in our hands and our feet in the sand. We visited the nearby towns of La Penita, Lo de Marcos and Sayulita, as well as Puerto Vallarta -- all by jumping on buses or 'colectivo' taxis that run along the main coastal road. It was surprisingly easy.

Dealing with the owner, Brad, was very straight-forward and we found him to be very accommodating, willing and helpful. Brad's property manager Daly was also very helpful: she managed to get a crib for our littlest one. Twice a week Gaby came to clean the casita, ensure we had drinking water delivered, and she gave us tips on where to visit.

My four-year-old daughter was enamored of the place, saying many times how much she liked Mexico and wanted to return. She particularly enjoyed picking the mangos that had fallen on the nearby soccer field, spotting the scores of hens and roosters throughout town, and visiting the community center near the house called Entre Amigos (Among Friends), which organized art and cooking classes for kids, a couple of which she was lucky enough to attend.

All in all, we really enjoyed our vacation here. We would definitely come again! Thank you so much!
