"We weren't sure what to think when we drove down the back road to the small neighborhood that Casa Mander is located in. When we reached the cobbled road that the Casa is on we immediately loved it!
The lay out of the bottom level is perfect for hosting. It opens on to a large outdoor living space with a pool that will make you forget the beach is only a short walk away. The jungle view and outdoor bathroom made it hard to go inside, even for another beer. The bedrooms have nice king size beds and closets that lock for any valuables you might want to store away.
The village of San Francisco is great! The locals are friendly, helpful and laid back. There are plenty of great food options in the town for all meals of the day.
If you want to explore the road less traveled Casa Mander and San Francisco are for you. We'll be back, for sure."

"A great place for a group getaway. The location is remote which makes Villa Violeta special and fun if the desire is to avoid throngs of other vacationers, but one must take this fact into consideration and understand that access/communication to outside world is very limited. If spotty wireless and cell reception is forgivable, I would highly recommend staying here. Even for a large group, the property and accommodations are fairly spacious and the staff did a great job keeping the place clean. Our staff was wonderful to work with - the prepared meals were very well done (we did not have any specific requests or major food allergies, so the fare was all mexican-based) and they were willing to provide our requests when given a few hours of lead time. The beach and pool are right at your fingertips and were great places for our large group to congregate, have fun, and relax. Our group came into the experience not knowing what to expect, and everyone left having had a phenomenal experience. Also, we initially thought we would be spending more time going on excursions outside of the premise (zip-lining, golf, hiking, etc.). However, leaving the property was much more difficult than expected, but this did not pose any problems as we had plenty of fun enjoying the weather, the beach, and the property, and only left once for a day-long boat excursion.
I would definitely consider planning a return trip to Villa Violeta - we had a blast!"

"We just left San Pancho today, and I want everyone to know that this house is amazing! We stayed with a few couples all attending a nearby wedding. This home was the perfect location for a san pancho wedding. most people going to the wedding stayed at a nearby resort... And when people heard of this house they were wondering why they had not thought to find a VRBO property. Loved our stay, and can't wait to go back!"

"We can't say it better than betty f. who wrote below. She captures it perfectly. We had stayed before in San Pancho on the other side of town with dogs that bark all night and roosters who take up after the dogs, and daily trucks with loudspeakers advertising this and that. What a relief to be in this part of town. Utterly quiet except for birds and ocean waves. The house itself is lovely and well-equipped. The pool is just right for soaking. I'm a bit reluctant to write this review because it may mean less chance to stay here in the future, but Dennis deserves it for offering such a great home."
