Property description

Casa del Risco is a one bedroom, open floor plan casita, perched 110 ft above a private cove beach, on your own private, walled ½ acre, with 180 degree coastal views, on the Pacific Ocean.

After passing through the iron entrance gate, through flowering gardens and giant palm trees, you descend several garden steps over a wooden bridge and through an antique door into the casita. The casita is comprised of one bedroom, kitchen, double sink vanity, private WC and an outdoor shower accessible through a glass door. The private outdoor shower, where you may spend more time than expected, is partially enclosed on two sides, covered with a palapa roof and open to a raised garden on the third side. The breathtaking view from the shower includes the waves breaking on the beach & cliffs below as well as the coastline south to Sayulita. Opposite the foot of the bed are sliding doors and sliding screens to the balcony, with a palapa roof and palm tree supports, table and chairs. Breakfast, lunch or sunset dinner can be enjoyed here in total privacy without ever leaving home. Below the balcony is a tiled sun deck with a barbecue, wet-bar, chaise lounges and umbrella. By now you probably have guessed that this is not a place for children. There are several steep cliffs and drop-offs. You will enjoy the feeling of being in the treetops with the flocks of pelicans that float on the air currents all day long, occasionally diving for fish below. Watch for whales just to the right of the property about 3/4 mile off shore. They like to spend the winter there too.

The property includes numerous patios for sunning or a deep shade garden patio under an ancient Fig tree, all with different spectacular views of the ocean and coastline. The beach below is accessible by traversing rustic steps across the hillside and down to the rocky shoreline and a beautiful sandy beach. The surf can be calm and azure blue or rough with huge waves crashing on the cliff side. During turtle season, leatherbacks have been seen laying their eggs on the full moon tide. The public beach is a short walk out the driveway and down the hill. From there you will find the 2 miles of beach with several restaurants and cafes. Fishing boats can rented at the end of the public beach.

The pueblo of San Pancho offers many fine restaurants where you can enjoy sunset while having cocktails and dinner. After that you might just walk down the street and watch a soccer game on your way home or stroll through town and shop. If it’s lunch you’re after, choose from an array of taco stands which dot the village or enjoy fresh seafood on the beach with your feet in the sand. The next town south of San Pancho is Sayulita, visible from our property. In Sayulita, surfing is the big draw. Plan to have lunch under a palapa on the beach and watch the surfers that come from all over the world to compete at this location. My favorite lunch spot in Sayulita is actually in town above the village square for fish tacos, you can’t miss it.
