About the property

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

Casa de los Jardines, is tucked across the river to the south of Tercer de Mundo. if you are walking it is a left at the Soccer Field(heading from the hiway to the beach) then you go over the river on the foot bridge after two blocks then you are on Primavera, go a 1/2 block and turn right at Indonesia, we are the second house on the right. If you are driving coming from Puerto Villarta, you go down to San Pancho's exit, but, circle back south and go to the first right hand turn. Turning left on a two lane in Mex. is a no no too dangerous, so then you are on Primavera on the other end of the one block long street. you go to Indonesia turn left and it is the second house on the right. Two story Brick, upstairs windows are arched. the house has a new separate two bed room apartment above a gracious home. Full kitchen set up for cooking the tasty meals you want to prepare. Nice balcony to enjoy your coffee and watch the sun rising over the mountain. The apartment has one bathroom with a deep tile bathtub to soak in after a hike or long day at the beach. Refreshing ocean breezes and fans keep the apartment a comfortable temperature. The quiet neighborhood is 6 blocks from the ocean and a little off the beaten track. There are friendly Mexican, American and Canadian neighbors. Casa de los Jardines is near Arroyo los Izotes River, the jungle and bordered by San Pancho Resort and Cultural Center. The river and jungle provide perfect habit for many varieties of birds that can be watched from the 2nd floor balcony. The large walled in lot with a locked gate provides privacy and a cozy safe feeling. Casa de los Jardines means home of gardens. There is a productive organic vegetable garden with greens almost always available. You will enjoy the gorgeous Ylang Ylang tree and many interesting native plants of Mexico. The apartment is very quiet with no sounds traveling between floors. The owners live downstairs and one is a retired chef who is available to prepare some meals with a local flair. A suggested menu and price list will be provided. WiFi available.

A 3 block walk brings you to downtown where you will find shops, groceries, internet cafes and good restaurants. Continue walking a few more block and you are at the beach. For more adventure, Sayulita is only a 10 minute drive and Puerto Vallarta is a 45 minute drive.

About Pat McMahon

We are Randy and Pat, retired building contractors now busy with art and weaving. We enjoy gardening and nature. Most mornings we can be found tending our organic garden. Most evenings we can be found at the beach watching a beautiful sunset. We enjoy meeting new people and balance that with respect for their privacy. We love the integrated Mexican and Expat community of San Pancho. We live here from October through mid- May. In the summer we live in La Veta Colorado, a small mountain village in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. But, we continue to Rent during the winter with our lovely caretaker Managing the property

Pat McMahon purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Pat McMahon chose Nayarit

We love the people here and the beach. San Pancho is a sweet little town built up around fishing.

What makes this apartment unique

We get to watch birds, see the jungle and enjoy beautiful clouds at sun set. We enjoy the quiet in the garden we've created.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We received the sweetest email from Paul and Sharon after their stay in our apartment in San Pancho...they appreciated our garden and breezes through all the windows and views of the Jungle...they seemed to really enjoy the space. We love guests like them. Pati and Randy

Great spot, great hosts, great neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

We found that Casa de los Jardines reflected the hospitality and laid-back atmosphere of San Pancho itself. Our hosts, Pati and Randy, were always available to answer questions and offer help about getting around the area and suggesting interesting things to see and do. The ocean breezes wafted through the upstairs apartment windows providing great sleeps on the ever-so-comfortable beds. While only a 10-minute walk from the bustling beach and tourist area, Casa de los Jardines is located far enough away to provide a tranquil tropical retreat in which we enjoyed preparing simple meals in the adequately appointed kitchen. Our month-long stay in this reasonably-priced apartment was wonderful and a welcome little bit of heaven away from the ice and snow of Ontario winter.

Perfect location in San Pancho!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful neighborhood and easy walk to shops and restaurants in San Pancho. The top floor of Pati and Randy's house was private, airy and spacious. We would definitely stay there again!

Casa de los Jardines, San Pancho, Mexico

  • 2 of 5

Very small apartment, owners live down stairs, so no privacy (we were afraid to make too much noise), felt more relaxed when we left the apartment, issue with using too much water, butane tank used for cooking has small leak so we were afraid to use it, had to eat out 3X every day, too far from town, not worth the $$'s. Maybe $45.00/night would be OK.

Owner's Response: We went out of our way to make these two first time travelers to Mexico comfortable here. We even picked them up at the airport to help ease them into a new Culture. We are ever so disappointed that they did not enjoy their stay. Pati

Great p

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 10 days with my teacher friend at Casa de las Jardines. After hot humid, but very interesting exploration of San Pancho, it was so good to comeback to the pleasant apartment. Fridge and small range made storing and cooking food easy. Beds were super comfortable and fans in all the rooms alleviated the heat well. Only two left turns got us easily to the Main Street. Felt safe the entire time, even walking home after dark. Nice neighbors and friendly dog and cat made it feel like home. You'll love the place. Roomy, quiet and filled all our needs. Thanks Pati. I foresee coming backs little earlier in the year.

Magical Tree House

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!!! At times we felt like we had the keys to the castle with the big brick arched windows all around. Other days it felt like a magical tree house with all the comforts of home. The open floor plan allowed for refreshing breezes from all directions. Located in a quiet and safe neighborhood just a short walk to the beach. The lush tropical gardens created an environment of peace and welcome. We would most definitely stay here again!!
