San Francisco (San Pancho) house description

Newly built three story Mediterranean style villa with unobstructed views overlooking the ocean and multiple lush Coco palms. Third story roof deck allows for panoramic view, sunset wine sipping and tranquil dining. Interior decor presents authentic rustic Mexican flare of fine furniture, tiling and adobe entry ways. Decorative ceiling, wall and floor pieces indigenous from all over Mexico lend to the feel of a true Mexico experience. Private garden throughout the property with secured entry and driveway allow comfort for freedom of children and family. For more information and the property blog, - type 'vistaceleste' into a google search.

Vista Celeste is just 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta on the beautiful, secluded Nayarit coast. This beautiful close to ocean property consists of a three story house with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, heated pool and outdoor BBQ area.

This extraordinary property is situated 1/2 block from the unspoiled white sand beaches of San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit. Lush vegetation and palm trees surround the beautifully-landscaped grounds. Here you can enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking sunsets, migrating whales, playful dolphins, and sea turtles. There are a host of adventurous activities, including epic surf, pristine golf, and horseback riding at your disposal. This is the perfect destination for those who seek privacy, serenity, and/or adventure.

The charming grounds are private with key entry only and a serpentine wall securing it.

The villa is fully-equipped with all the amenities you will need to enjoy your Mexican getaway. Imagine yourself lying poolside listening to the waves crash on the shore or soaking in the jetted tub. Vista Celeste offers all that you need to relax, unwind, and enjoy a true hidden paradise.

The property is located right across from Costa Azul resort and next to Villas Paradise. The property is within walking distance of town, but is far enough away to steer clear of the daily crowds and noise. When in the small town of San Pancho, you can find many shops, grocers, and many restaurants to suit the taste of any family member. Do not miss the opportunity to mingle with the locals. They are very friendly and eager to practice their English with you. San Pancho itself is a picturesque Mexican fishing town with virtually no crime. It looks much as Puerto Vallarta did before it was discovered. Vista Celeste is professionally managed for guest's convenience.

                          Relaxing in this beautiful location with lullabies of the ocean waves 03/16/2013

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:

                          Three straight cloudless sunny days in a fabulous house with an absolutely fabulous location! Tucked away behind views of lush palm trees and calming lullabies of the ocean waves, there was not a chance that any worldly stresses could interfere. This sweet house packed all the amenities one could ask for; from the heated saltwater pool, full kitchen and comfy queen beds, to the long-stretched tiled viewing porches on every level of this three story gem. There was always something wonderful to gaze upon! The mornings would start nice and slow sipping coffee, enjoying the cool morning breezes and taking in the various sounds of jungle wildlife. In the afternoons, we could laze in the warm pool and grill our meals as the local fisherman would stop in to offer the catch of the day. As fresh as it gets! In the evenings we could enjoy our favorite tunes on the IPOD stereo system in the kitchen/dining area and then open the fully glassed sliding doors to enjoy the sea breezes and cloudless starry nights. Every level had ocean views! The owners, Nils and Denice ever so graciously explained the ropes and some of the impressive elements of this little surf town. They are in the hospitality business so they are a real treat to converse with! It is such a wonderful place to vacation when you want to escape the tourist element and enjoy the overabundance of friendly and cultural atmosphere.

                          The food was absolutely to die for! The shopping was great and San Pancho is just minutes away from a popular tourist destination, Sayulita, if you wanted to indulge in even more trinkets, surfing and people-watching. On a day excursion we enjoyed snorkeling, which was fantastic and we even got to see Humpback whales in the wild!

                          Getting to the house is easy as it is one main highway straight from the airport to the town. The home is gated and has its own yard so you can be as private as you would like. Everything was stress free! Whether you are looking for a place to relax or go adventuring, you can do it all here. Don’t miss out on this little slice of Mexican heaven!

                          Just 25 miles North of Puerto Vallarta, Vista Celeste lies in the small town of San Francisco (affectionately called San Pancho by the locals). Secluded in the lush Nayarit Riviera, San Francisco’s small town charm, cobblestone streets and friendly locals comprise a unique getaway from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern life. Across the street from the beach, and adjacent to a resort with restaurants and countless activities, Vista Celeste offers something for everyone. Whether it’s snorkeling the pristine waters or an evening spent sampling the exquisite local cuisine, a vacation in San Pancho can be truly memorable.

                          About: Denice and Nils Kristoffersen have been in the hospitality business over ten years and are the owners of the award winning Wild Basin Lodge and Event Center in Colorado. Their love of nature and scenery find them surrounded by majestic peaks in Colorado, and embraced by warm waters in Mexico. They sincerely hope you enjoy the beauty of the area as much as they do.

                          Why San Francisco (San Pancho):
                          White beaches, warm waters and cobblestone streets all factored into the desire to be a part of San Pancho. Add in temperate weather, fantastic local cuisine and a friendly atmosphere, and the Kristoffersens couldn't be happier to own Vista Celeste.
