Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Larry, We had a wonderful time, your home is beautiful and we were quite comfortable there. Discovering San Pacho was quite a treat and I would recommend your home to others. The property managers were very helpful, friendly and informative. The taxi was available upon our arrival and our travel was quite smoothe. I only wish we had more time! We hope to come again, thanks so much! Carol

Great comfort and value in San Pancho

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in Feb 2016. The house is very comfortable and nicely decorated We enjoyed the pool and the sundeck. With the separate bedrooms, this would be ideal for two or three couples travelling together or a family.

A very nice very well managed property

A diamond in the rough!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 11 days at Casa Mariposa on our recent visit to San Pancho. It is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show and has all the necessary amenities that are listed in the property description. The walk into town and to the beach is a short 10 minutes with many great places to stop for coffee, eat a meal or shop. We had 24 friends and family staying at other accommodations (nothing came close to our Casa!) and Maria''s Restaurant was a good place to eat for a large group. We also loved La Ola Rica and would highly recommend them. Every part of the trip was easy to arrange from making our first reservations with the owner, Larry Luttrell, to emails with Jose Luis, Penelope, and Nieves (property manager and assistants). Questions you might have will be quickly answered by any of these hard working, efficient employees. And if that isn't enough, the landscaper, Marcelo, and housekeeper, Elida, do an amazing job taking care of the house and gardens. If you're lucky enough to be around when Marcelo comes, you may be treated to a coconut harvest and have enough coconuts to last your entire stay. My family and I will definitely return to San Pancho and wouldn't want to stay any where else than Casa Mariposa. Thank you so much for this trip of a lifetime!

Beautiful home, outstanding garden, and adorable roosters and hens!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at "our home in San Pancho". Everyone was so nice at the management company and I enjoyed meeting Marcello the gardener and the lovely woman who cleans the house. The house is absolutely gorgeous and we were very comfortable. It definitely has a feel of paradise. I enjoyed walking through the neighborhoods where the Mexican residents live. Everyone was welcoming. Thank you Larry and team!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 weeks here at Casa Mariposa and hated to leave. The house is a work of art, great design. We each had our own ample private space and so much communal space. It is well equipped too; not once did anyone say, "I just wish we had ___________, because it truly had everything you need. Every morning, having our coffee outside, we would just take in the beauty of the outdoor spaces. The chickens and roosters are even beautiful. And we had two iguanas that kept us company. The staff is helpful and unobtrusive. And San Pancho is the best little town. We called it "Mayberry of Mexico" (for all you gringos over 50). We will be back in a couple of years. Thanks Larry for making it all so easy.

Our sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

What a marvelous home to stay in while in San Pancho! From watching the squirrels playing in the palm trees, to the "San Pancho" roosters with their hens, to the Iguanas scurrying across the beautiful lawn, it was such a relaxing pleasure to come back to your home Lawrence.

I've been to Mexico many times and this is by far the best place Linda and I have stayed!

Marcello, the grounds keeper, was there at least once a week and maintained the area like a park. He obviously takes personal pride in the work that he does. He came over one day with his climbing spikes and pruned one of the palms. Since he had no one to help him, I enjoyed assisting him by untying the rope as he lowered the coconut pods.

Ellie, the housekeeper, kept the house very clean and was a joy to be around.

Jose Luis, the property manager, was there to greet Linda and I when we arrived and answered any and all questions that we had. Since all speak very good english, there was never any problem communicating.

While we were there, for the month, I enjoyed watching the building of house on the other side of the street. It turned out to be Lawrence's brother Michael. It was a pleasure talking to Micheal and the construction workers about the building process.

Linda and I enjoyed the walk, from the house, into San Pancho and to the beach. The road leads past an amazing small cemetery that is very well taken care of. From there, it's just a few minutes and you're in town, where you can go to the beach or enjoy some of the best food anywhere.

Linda and I enjoyed taking the Compostela bus into town on two occasions. The cost is only 40 pesos and takes you into the bus terminal by the airport. From there, you take the "blue" bus marked "centro". Once you're in town, you can get off anywhere. This is something I would definitely recommend, if you have the time. It's a great experience.

Lawrence is the most organized and easiest individual to work with! Everything was done quickly and thoroughly. I will be contacting Lawrence again for a future stay.

I have to mention one more thing: Lawrence has what appears to be an 8'X16' solar panel on the roof so there is never any problem with hot water! Linda and I greatly appreciated that.

Casa Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

We booked Casa Mariposa over the holidays to attend a "destination" wedding.

San Pancho and Casa Mariposa turned out to be a wonderful hidden gem that we can't wait to return to.

There were over 100 people who attended the wedding and we entertained many at Casa Mariposa over the week we were there. It was a unanimous vote that Casa Mariposa was by far one of the best vacation rentals in San Pancho!!

Clean, spacious, well appointed and furnished describes the inside!! The huge, private yard, lovely balcony and fabulous open dining and living area outside were priceless!

Jose the property manager was extremely helpful during our stay!

The Casa was extremely well equipped with every convenience and had the best wifi connection anywhere in town!

The only advise I would pass on is that you might want to rent a golf cart if you plan on going around San Pancho (to restaurants or the beach) frequently as it is a bit of a hike back and forth!

From the photo you will notice that the locals were very friendly!! :)

Lawrence the owner was very pleasant to deal with and quick to respond to any inquiries we had!

We will be back for sure!!!
