About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This romantic, classically styled Mexican villa offers a casual elegance not often found in today's world. View pelicans, frigates, dolphins, whales, iguanas, butterflies, and other wildlife while sipping cold drinks from the privacy of the patio. Amenities of Casa Pacifica include 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms with hotel quality beds -- two upstairs (one king, one queen) and two down (both kings) -- each has its own private bathroom, air conditioning and no adjoining walls to any other bedroom. The two bedrooms upstairs have their own private ocean front balcony with an attractive lounge area. New renovations and furnishings including designer linens; a Weber Gas Grill on the patio; a high end gourmet kitchen complete with Wolf Range, Subzero refrigerator, new Spanish Colonial tile counter tops, and quality cookware and cutlery; all ensure that your stay will be comfortable and luxurious.

Your days can be filled with activities -- from swimming to sightseeing to taking yoga -- or you can just lounge by the plunge pool or on the white sand beach and wait for the sun to drop into the beautiful, blue Pacific. Whales migrate between October and February. See them from the terrace or get close-up on a boat in the Bay of Banderas. As a nature lover you can enjoy tropical birds flying by or go on a bird watching tour. Observe iguanas, geckos, tajones or tour the turtle nursery and help release the baby turtles into the ocean. Ocean kayaking, a zip-line adventure, snorkeling and hiking in the palm jungle are the best ways to enjoy the tropical environment. The sunsets are breathtaking! Casa Pacifica is tropical Mexico as you dreamed it would be.

San Pancho is a wonderful, quaint, and very friendly little village on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta,and 10 miles north of Punta de Mita (the home of both Four Seasons and St. Regis Resorts and all of the amenities that go along with 5 star properties such as these). San Pancho, formally known as San Francisco has one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere. Casa Pacifica is on the nicest stretch of this mile long beach, just a short walk from the center of this lovely little Pacific coastal jewel, where the rich culture of the indigenous people magically blends with the newer customs of their North American and European neighbors. Here you will find everything from an Italian Bakery, to a Brazilian restaurant, from a choice of grocery stores to a myriad of quaint shops that line the cobblestone streets.

There are excellent restaurants in town with varied international menus, really good local Mexican dishes, great margaritas, and plenty of fresh seafood, and Casa Pacifica is only a block from the best restaurant, Mar Plata. Other evening activities include live entertainment, Saturday night polo matches and endless forms of art and culture. Dolphins and Whales are common to the area and they will captivate your heart as they magically entertain you with their delightful dancing show; especially during the months of October through February. San Pancho also has a yoga and wellness center, named El-Estar, meaning 'Being'. The multiple relaxation and healing treatments provided by these incredible therapists can enhance your long or short stay as well as heal your aches and pains. New in 2011, San Pancho also has its own golf course. Las Huertas Golf Club is a nine hole course that can be played as 18 and is located about one quarter mile from Casa Pacifica.

About Ron Baker

We have always had a sense of adventure and we were lured to Casa Pacifica by the sea. In the mid 90's we decided to begin looking for the perfect seaside location.

Our travels took us around the world a couple of times but in the end we found our paradise within three hours of home. Situated at the perfect spot on the perfect beach, Casa Pacifica, with easy access to all attractions and with awesome views has proved extremely popular with guests who return year after year. We would love to share our little bit of paradise with you and introduce you to 'Mexico's Little Secret' - the hidden gem of the Mexican Riviera!

Ron Baker purchased this house in 2007

Why Ron Baker chose Nayarit

When we visited San Pancho for the first time in 2007, it was love at first sight! Our plan had been to spend a month traveling up the coast from Manzanillo to Mazatlan looking for a place to build our retirement home. We had a long list of requirements; friendly people, a spectacular ocean view, and a town with a relaxing vibe that still had restaurants and other attractions. It turned out that San Pancho was our first and last stop. We rented Casa Pacifica for a week before starting our Journey. We fell in love with it immediately and bye buy travel plans. We knew that we'd never find anything we liked better, no matter where we looked.

What makes this house unique

San Pancho is truly paradise and Casa Pacifica sits just off the water's edge on a beautiful expanse of soft sandy beach. Days and nights provide continual tropical breezes and the tranquil sounds of the sea. The villa's design brings magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean from virtually every vantage point in the villa. You can gaze at the sailboats and fisherman as they pass the villa, or maybe catch sight of the whales and dolphins as they swim past. And then there is an awe-inspiring sunset followed by the captivating and magical lights of the neighboring villages set against the star-filled night sky. You will find Casa Pacifica to be a tranquil and elegant stay for your holiday.

We just came back from spending 9 days in Casa Pacifica in San Pancho. The house is located in an ideal area of the town. We practically had the beach to ourselves! The house was very clean, enough dishes to cook a meal for a group of 8, washer and dryer and plenty of towels. We will definitely consider staying here if we decide to come back to San Pancho. Thank you Ron!

Beautiful beach, beautiful view, big comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a lovely trip to San Pancho and seven nights at Casa Pacifica. We've been to San Pancho twice before but never had a house on the beach. It was wonderful. This is a big, comfortable house on a quieter street. The big patio is where the seven of us spent most of our time -- watching the ocean come in and out, and the waves mixed with big deep thunder. Plus, there are surfers. And because this is at the end of the point, it is a pretty private bach. We were very happy in the house. Jose Luis is a great help if there are any problems. What we've found as with most rentals here is that there are a few problems with how things work, but nothing that will spoil your visit. The beds are comfortable, the water is clean, there are plenty of towels and chairs and really whatever you need. The walk in town is easy on the beach, bring some sturdy shoes or well practiced feet and ankles for the walk on the cobble stone street. Bring bug spray for walking or hanging out on the beach (there are invisible sand fleas). Enjoy all the delicious food in town, cute shops. Jose can arrange a ride for you into Sayulita if you like, for a little more shopping. But if you're looking for peace, you'll be happy to come back to San Pancho.

San Pancho Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a great get away as one of four couples. Casa Pacifica housed us nicely with 4 large bedrooms thankfully each with their own private ensuites. A generous Kitchen dining and living area although we lived on the patio :-) We generally did our own cooking and thought that we could have used a bigger frypan and another larger pot. Also note that no basic condiments are included - no salt/pepper etc.

We spent a lot of time on the patio which is very nice but the chairs have seen better days - a couple being particularly rough.

San Pancho is a nice, clean, quiet town - about a twenty minute walk by beach or road - where there is quite a nice selection of restaurants also small shops for groceries although I would advise doing a bigger shop at the Mega store for a much better selection.

We did have an issue during our stay and are happy to report that Jose Luis (the house manager) went above and beyond to help us out - so much appreciated - unfortunately we can not say the same of Ron (the owner) his lack of support/interest was very disappointing.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and recommend San Pancho for anybody wanting a sun filled holiday without being tourist filled

Casa Cervesa Pacifica

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great stay we had at Casa Pacifica. 10 days of girly time celebrating a 50th Birthday. Loved eveything about the house, wonderful to have an ensuite in every bedroom. The house was fairly well stocked, however it would have been nice to have a few more lounge chairs for the beach, as there was only three for eight people. Views were amazing from the sunsets, to watching the whales and pelicans soar along the waves. Nothing like staying beachfront.

San Pancho is a lovely quite surfing village about 20 minute walk on the beach. Food was amazing at the numerous restaurants we tried. The people are so kind and helpful. Absoultely my most favourite place I've travelled to in Mexico.

Jose was absolutely fantastic, with less than 12 hours notice he put together a team to prepare light snacks and cold drinks for our arrival. Enjoyed a lovely Mexican meal prepared by his favourite chef. Anything you needed, you could just call Jose. Ron, the home owner, was also fantastic to deal with when it came to inquiry about the rental property.

Thank you, I look forward to returning to Casa Pacifica again.

50th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 women lived very comfortably in Casa Pacifica for 10 days. We spent hours on the beach directly in front of the house watching the surfers and enjoying the ocean view. Daily we would stroll into San Pancho for supplies, meals or just a walk about. From the house it is about a 20 minute walk of peaceful beach; beach vendors are non existent. Jose was very helpful. He organized the airport pick up, a stop at the mega store for supplies, arranged for an authentic Mexican meal cooked at the Casa, and when our blender broke, he bought us a new one immediately. The property was very clean. My only suggestion for improvement would be to ensure that there are 8 lounge chairs for the beach and that the kitchen is stocked with an appropriate number of dishes ie 8 wine glasses not 2. I look forward to my return to San Pancho someday!

Casa cerveza pacifica

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, fantastic location. I felt we had the entire playa to ourselves, sitting on the beach bench created by the 1.5 metre waves - enjoying the local boarders master the waves - who by the way were lovely to meet. La casa is an excellent use of space and incredibly private - even with neighbors on both sides, we were highly secluded on the patio. The pueblo of San Pancho is idyllic - love the local vibe, excellent restaurants, absence of beach vendors and pushy flea markets. Very nice part of Mexico. Absolutely safe walking around the cobble stone streets and beach late at night with a cell phone as a flashlight - and trust me- we did this often. The only comment I have, which will hopefully be taken as constructive a shortage of material goods...For example, there were 2 wine glasses for a house that housed 8. There were only 3 lounge chairs for the beach but 8 adults. We ended up purchasing plastic cups and paper plates to accommodate. When Jose Luis found a chef for us one night, she was profoundly challenged by the lack of kitchen amenities required to cook our meal and serve it. By the way, Jose Luis was lovely and accommodating and Diva drivers were magnificent. Final note, although the village and beach are incredibly safe and friendly, we did become "overly comfortable" and left some rented boogi boards in the porch area. One of the boards (the best one) was stolen, along with a couple of pairs of flip-flops. We had to pay the surf shop for the board, which was quite expensive. Which also reminds me that 3 out of the four passport safes did not function. So...when you are finished for the day, you may want to lock up any boards, fins or other easy access stuff. None of us believe it was the local guys out front - it was someone passing by, and we were marked by our oblivion to negativity. Would I return to San Pancho again - in a second! Would I recommend Casa Pacifica - absolutely (especially if there were a few more wine glasses).
