About the property

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

Casa Flores is tucked away on a quiet street just a block off the main street. It is a recently-constructed, 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom home that is modern, clean and comfortable. Beautiful backyard swimming pool with solar-heating fountain; backs onto open space, overlooking a beautiful jungle field with horses, goats, many species of birds (binoculars provided for bird-watching enthusiasts) and a historical museum ruin - just beyond that is the beach; scenic golf course with elevated tees, stone bridges and ocean views; medium-sized combination safe with room for laptops, cameras and personal items accessed by your personal code; comfortable lounge chairs and hammock on back patio by the pool; outdoor brick grill, and table and chairs out on the patio for outdoor dining.

It is just a 5-minute walk from Casa Flores to the beach, past local restaurants and shops. San Pancho is a delightful village. It is peaceful and safe, but big enough that there are plenty of great restaurants and shops. It's easy to get here from the Puerto Vallarta airport, just a 45-minute drive through a beautiful tropical jungle corridor, to our little beach town. Beyond all the high-rise, all-inclusive resorts, you will find all the best of Mexico. The beach here is never crowded, and the three little beach bars offer a perfect vantage point for enjoying the stunning sunsets you can see daily. San Pancho is a great community of friendly people who value the opportunity to meet new people, and they will welcome you with open arms. San Pancho is a place that will stay in your heart forever.

About Sheri

We live in Colorado in summer and San Pancho for part of the winter. We love to travel as much as we can. We love art and music, walks on the beach, and shorts at midnight.....

Sheri purchased this house in 2011

Why Sheri chose San Francisco

San Pancho is the perfect place for us. It is small and tranquil but still has lots to offer. It is easy and inexpensive for us to get here from Colorado so it made a perfect winter getaway for us. We fell in love with the town because of the wonderful community of people. We love everything about this place and plan to be here for many years.....

What makes this house unique

If you are tired of the resort Mexico where they lock you behind a gate and attach a pass around your neck and a hose to your wallet; if you are looking for a more authentic Mexico experience that is tranquil and safe, with all the comforts of a clean and modern home, this is the place for you....

Great location, beautiful and airy place to stay in San Pancho. Everything was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The whole stay was excellent from start to finish. The Casa is beautiful, the property managers helpful and communicative and you could not want for anything. Exactly where you want to be when staying in San Pancho!

Lovely House in a Great Town

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I just returned from a great week staying at Casa Flores, our first visit to San Pancho but definitely not our last. Casa Flores is spacious, well designed and well built. Everything worked fine and San Pancho Management quickly took care of two minor items. During our stay there were two new houses being built directly across the street and two others on the street were undergoing renovation. Although the workers started at 7am the noise was not a problem.

The kitchen is very well equipped although we did very little cooking. The local restaurants are very good and very reasonably priced. We typically ate for less than 100 pesos each for a full breakfast and 300 pesos for an excellent dinner + drinks. We can recommend Maria's for breakfast and Maria's, Mr. Ribs and La Ola Rica for dinner, plus Cafe Paraiso for coffee & pastries. Casa Flores' location suited us, being an easy five minute stroll to restaurants and about ten minutes to the beach. The house suited us very well with just one exception – we like the sun and in December the back yard gets very little sun, except over the pool. You can rent loungers and umbrellas at the beach, although there are both available at Casa Flores. We never felt inclined to carry all that gear plus towels etc. to the beach.

We are used to the beach in Nuevo Vallarta and we like being able to stroll along in ankle-deep water, but during our stay at San Pancho the surf, plus the steep beach, made this impossible. This is probably our only disappointment with San Pancho. The local people are very friendly and we never felt unsafe walking back to the house at night. It's a good idea to take a flashlight though, as the sidewalks are typically “erratic”. Casa Flores is on an unpaved street and needs some careful negotiating at night or after rainfall.

Beautiful home near beach & restaurants

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week as guests of Drew and Sheri in their beautiful, modern home, backing on green space, quiet street just off the main street. The restaurant culture in this little town has to be experienced to be believed. Locals gather for drinks at the beach at sunset to plan the evening, with a different musical event every night, and a dozen great restaurants to choose from. Casa Flores has a beautiful patio and swimming pool that catches the morning sun, and their beautiful home is perfect for one or two couples seeking a romantic retreat.

A fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house in a wonderful town! As our three visits over the last three years attest, we love this rental and we love San Pancho. The house is perfectly set up, with two bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower, a utility room (washer/dryer), and living room and kitchen on the ground floor, and the master bedroom and bathroom on the top floor. It is clean, well-equipped, and beautifully decorated with local art and some pieces by the owners. You will spend a lot of time outside on the rear patio which backs onto a huge green space surrounded by lush jungle trees. Binoculars are provided, so watch the many iquanas who hang out (literally) in the tree across the field. You'll also enjoy cooling off and relaxing in the small pool, lounging on the deck chairs, and eating at the patio table. Upstairs, off the bedroom, is another small patio for soaking up the rays. Two mountain bikes are provided for exploring the area around San Pancho (ride the jungle roads out to the new polo field!) as are beach towels and beach chairs. The kitchen is well-supplied, and the wifi works well.

The house is located on a side road in a very safe and friendly area. We never had one moment of worry about security. From the house it takes you just minutes to walk to the many, many great restaurants and shops in the town itself. It's a ten minute easy stroll down to the beautiful beach. The sandy beach is huge and great for sunbathing, but the waves might prove a bit much for weak swimmers and small children. The town has a friendly, laid-back vibe but is also bustling with the sounds and activities of the local community. Entre-Amigos is the fabulous community center, which provides many classes and workshops and serves as a gathering place for locals and gringos. You must head down to the beach at sunset for margaritas and music at one of the three bars on the sand!

The owners, Drew and Sheri, are great people to deal with, as is Eduardo the local manager. Enjoy!

An Incredible Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home! The house is so spacious, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. I enjoyed reading a book picked from the shelf by the open back doors on many a quiet morning.

The location was so convenient to shops, restaurants, and the beach that we never regretted not renting a car. On the two occasions that we decided to venture out and explore other villages, taxis were easy to find and very affordable.

We quickly met the friendly neighbors and shopkeepers and enjoyed eating at the local restaurants. Every meal was wonderful. We even cooked a couple of meals, as the kitchen contains all of the pots, pants, and utensils that one could ever need.

The Owner and Property Manager were both very responsive. We didn't have many questions while in the house because everything had been so well outlined and explained in advance. The house was immaculate when we arrived and was cleaned once (beautifully) during our stay.

Our only regret was not visiting the community center, Entre Amigos, earlier in the week so that we could have taken advantage of the class offerings. We will be sure to do so next time, which we plan to be sooner rather than later!
