  • Best Vacation Ever

    "My husband and i plus another couple (our best friends) stayed at Casa Colina for one week over New Years Eve. We were in San Pancho for my step-son's wedding. This house was perfect for us in so many ways. The view is amazing...incredible panoramic sunsets...panoramic ocean view...too cool for words. Two separate master suites provided privacy and the outdoor shower was my personal favorite...i watched for hump-back whales while showering! The main living/kitchen/dining area was spacious - we cooked many meals and played Uno into the night...honestly, this house is private yet within walking distance to the town. We are already planning our next visit!"

  • A truly wonderful place

    "I'm a discerning traveler who hesitates to rate places because I'm sort of old and bald and cranky and hard to please, but I have to break my own rule here: We had a sort of extended family gathering here recently and this is a magnificent place. Close enough to Puerto Vallarta to get there fairly easily, close enough to San Pancho for dining out, groceries, and stuff, but remote enough to be unspoiled, clean, safe, and a GREAT place to recharge yourself. San Pancho is a friendly little place that is a treasure. Some of the visitors & locals gather at the beach in town to watch the sunset and then applaud. Or you can also watch the sunset at these villas from down at the water and applaud by yourself. One time I walked down to the water by myself and simply sat there for approaching an hour before realizing how long I had been just sitting--this is a perfect indicator of how unspoiled and private this place is. I saw more whales and turtles in a week here than my whole life combined. The place is well maintained and I will never hesitate to recommend it! I tried out my 2 years' high school Spanish at each opportunity in San Pancho and between my cruddy Spanish and their English, NEVER had a problem. I was amazed at how many locals have a working command of English and at no time was there any misunderstanding at food or beverage or shopping or entertainment-type establishments."

  • Epic experience!!!

    "A close group of 9 of my dear friends had the pleasure of experiencing Villa Clavellinas in March of 2015. We made the trip to celebrate a beautiful lady's 40th birthday. It was the trip of a lifetime. We all are making plans to return. It is the perfect place for a large group. The views are incredible. Very private and relaxing. Plenty of room for several guests. I highly recommend requesting the service for meal preparation. We had the immense pleasure of having a wonderful cook prepare us one meal daily and it was worth it!! Incredible addition to the whole experience!! The only obstacle would be for someone with any physical handicaps or small children-any under 10. The stairs are many and steep and the property is not for small children. Also, rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the jungle road from the villa. It is not for small vehicles. Other than that, prepare yourself for pure magic and sweetness. This a gem in the jungle!!"

  • You really are in the sky!

    "We just returned from our trip to San Pancho and, truly, one of the best parts of our trip was our accommodations at Casa Del Cielo!!! Comfortable, spacious and down right amazing views! There were 3 couples and each room was equipped with large beds, room for our stuff and privacy to boot! Another fourth room offered a very private space but the bed was much smaller and less inviting. That said, nothing else was anything other than PERFECT! We loved the pelicans flying at eye level, the few whales, perhaps dolphins and the critters you see in one of the photos came for a visit, too. But they are so tame and cute! We loved the sleepy town of San Pancho and as another reviewer commented, we much prefer it over Sayulita. We stumbled upon a great restaurant near the house, Marplata, it's a hidden gem! Thank you Ana and Diego, it was truly a delight. We hope to come back every year! Just one tip - we highly recommend a car! The walk into town is a little far, especially if you're carrying anything such as groceries, beach amenities, etc."
