San Francisco (San Pancho) house description

Las casitas bonitas, part of an idyllic beach front retreat, is located in the Costa Azul area in the beautiful and friendly village of San Francisco (San Pancho) nestled between the Sierra Madre and the Pacific. Just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, this upgraded property consits of two separate units with 2 bedrooms, 2 bath houses and another unit with 1 bedroom, 1 bath. All casitas are fully equipped and tastefully decorated with antiquities from around the world.

In the upper unit, Casa Tranquila, a spacious living/dining room with 14 foot ceilings opens up onto the terrace with a negative edge plunge pool overlooking the ocean and pristine beach. Enjoy sunsets year round, relax, have a massage on the terrace or have a private chef come prepare a traditional meal for you and your guests.

The middle one bedroom unit, Casa Lolita, has a small plunge pool, incredible views to the beach and a large gringo tree growing in the middle of the bathroom. It's a perfect retreat for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.

The lower beach house, Casa Amorita, has the largest pool and an upstairs bedroom that opens up to the beach beyond. This house is literally on the beach.

The breathtaking beach at your backdoor is never crowded (almost deserted) and free of annoying vendors. One of the best restaurants in town, Mar Plata, is just across the street. In the pueblo of San Pancho, which is about a 10-15 minute stroll away, you can experience the quaint charm of Mexico, including excellent places to eat, taco stands, artisans, and interesting shops.

Las Casitas Bonitas is exactly what the name implies, a beautiful retreat where the leisurely pace of life can be fully enjoyed. This property was featured in Costal Living Magazine December 07 which speaks for itself. For more information, please contact us directly.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: I spent many months in Mexico growing up sailing with my family. I've always loved the country and people. My partner Bob and I decided to invest when the opportunity arose. He now lives in LA directing live television, and rarely goes. Maybe too much sand and that long 2 hour commute! I on the other hand live in NY, and go any chance I can. Bob is holding Kassi, who is known in the town more than either of us. If she's not at home, she can usually be found at one of the local restaurants enjoying a weiney martini. They actually stock hot dogs for her when she's in town.

                          Why the Owner Chose San Francisco (San Pancho):
                          Just look at our back yard! The houses aren't too shaby either.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Pilar, our housekeeper/cook. To me, she outshines the incredible views and tasteful accomodations. Nobody on Earth can make you smile like she does. I give her more credit for our success than myself for building and developing this unique space.
