About Frank Dunbar

My wife and I are retired teachers in California and built Casa de la Paz in 2004 as our retirement home. After retirement we became grandparents (ten wonderful children) and our retirement plans were altered. We now enjoy San Pancho several times a year and rent it when we are not able to be here there.

Frank Dunbar purchased this House in 2004

Why Frank Dunbar chose San Francisco

We built Casa de la Paz in the heart of the village because we wanted to be walking distance to all of the benefits of this lovely pueblo.

What makes this House unique

The furnishings and art work in the casa are all fom local craftsmen. We love the Mexican culture and wanted our home to reflect this. While the outside colors are neutral (except for the beautiful gardens), the inside of the casa is alive with vivid colors. There are several different outside patios to enjoy the pool and gardens. Fans and A/C are in all rooms. We have a golf cart for rent, for $35 usd per day (15% less than local rates).

                                                            Too Noisy

                                                            Randy P.

                                                            House was cute but the neighbor situation become unbearable. After four nights of being woken up by barking dogs (that are chained next door) and countless roosters before 5am, we left and checked in to a resort so we could enjoy the last three nights of our vacation. Owner needs to either address situation next door or not rent the unit because it truly is unbearable. We tried ear plugs but that was a joke. Roosters and dogs sounded like they were in our bedrooms. On last day, the same neighbors started burning trash and the entire house and front pool area filled with smoke. That was the straw that broke the camels back. I would not stay in this unit if you are looking for a nice relaxing Mexican vacation.

                                                            Beautiful property. Great price. Not the owners fault, but the roosters next door are no joke.

                                                            Doreen R.

                                                            Beautiful house, but dang those roosters. Zero sleep the first night. Had to go to the pharmacy to drug up for the remainder of our stay to get sleep. Not ideal. If you are one of those people that can sleep through anything, go for it. And yes, I have been to Mexico at least 20 times. These roosters should be on Xanax.

                                                            Casa de la Paz is your own little oasis. Beautiful accommodation.

                                                            Beautiful home, management very helpful. We will be definitely be back!

                                                            Meg M.

                                                            Enjoyed this property very much. Frank was a little hard to communicate with but once we arrived Eduardo and Marlena were very helpful and accommodating. Property was great, clean, well equipped. We loved the leafy courtyard, the incredible taco place down the street and the brewhouse in the opposite direction. San Pancho is lovely and the perfect Mexican beach town. Bring earplugs as the neighbors dogs and roosters are pretty intense.

                                                            Beautiful home, garden and pool right in town

                                                            Michael B.Seattle

                                                            We really enjoyed our stay at Cases de la Paz! The backyard is shaded by about 4pm in the afternoon, which provides for a wonderful, beautiful and quite tranquil living area for the evening. The home is spacious with all necessary amenities and the location is perfect - literally in the middle of town and a couple minutes walk to the beach. Frank and Eduardo (the local manager) were available to assist whenever we had questions. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience San Pancho and all it's amazing culture.

                                                            Just as a note, the family next door has chickens, roosters and dogs. The Senora is really sweet and is one of the town's originals.

                                                            Beautiful Mexican Casa

                                                            Paul I.Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico

                                                            What a delightful Mexican casa in the heart of San Pancho! We were looking for a romantic beach getaway for a week in a small pueblo that was only a few hours drive away from our retirement home in Mexico. Upon arrival we were very pleasantly surprised at the location, the decor and the well stocked kitchen of the casa.

                                                            Cooking is what we like to do so this was a perfect place for us. But, after exploring this quaint little town, we found so many amazing restaurants to enjoy meals at that cooking soon took a "back burner".

                                                            The swimming pool was nice for a quick dip to cool off during the day and the air conditioning inside was appreciated during the night.

                                                            The property manager and the maid were attentive to any needs we might have (although we had none) and the owner was readily available if needed.

                                                            The beach was pleasant and not at all crowded and only a few minutes walk away along tree-lined streets. We explored some of the nearby pueblos (Sayulita, Punta de Mita, Lo de Marcos, etc) and found some stunningly isolated and deserted tropical beaches but San Pancho was our favorite place.

                                                            We would not hesitate to book this property again.
