About Nancy or Bob Elfering

We are long term residents of Minnesota. Bob is a retired Custom Home Builder, and previously owned and ran a plumbing company and excavating business. We remain very involved with real estate, rental property and property management in Minnesota. We still have family in Minnesota and will probably always reside there for part of the year. However, for what seems like the six months of 'Winter' -- we much prefer the sunny warm climate in Bucerias.

Nancy or Bob Elfering purchased this house in 2004

Why Nancy or Bob Elfering chose Nayarit

We fell in love with Bucerias over 30 years ago while visiting friends. We have made it a point to come each year since. When our children were grown and the opportunity to purchase came up, we did not hesitate. We originally bought our first home 'Casa Robertoson' right next door in 2002. We kept it for our own enjoyment originally, but the house was so large and we enjoy people, so it made sense to share. We purchased the house right next door 'Suites Nanciana' in 2004 and have developed a great network of suites. We have met some great people and have made some long term friends.

Many of our guests return each season --- like coming home.

What makes this house unique

We have a fabulous location and are easy walking distance to a variety of restaurants and shops. We are only one block to the beach and three blocks to town. Everything is within close proximity -- beach, groceries, ATM, laundry, buses, etc. -- a vehicle is not necessary and the vast majority of our guests do not use one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been visiting the Bucerias area for nearly 20 years, and purchased our vacation home nearly five years ago. This is the first season that we are offering part of it for rent. We are sure you will fall in love with the house and the area just like we did. We will be there to help you in any way we can.

Wonderful location, great people!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay up on the top floor! We enjoyed our terrace immensely and having the BBQ was fabulous. You could not ask for better hosts than Nancy and Bob. The third-floor queen suite was exactly as pictured on VRBO, and was very clean. After two weeks, we moved to the third-floor studio for 8 nights. It is a large studio and we enjoyed it as well. I love to cook so always travel with my own chef's knife and with that, we had pretty much everything we needed. There are a tonne of great restos in the area and the mini-super around the corner, Mary Pas, had what we needed on a day-to-day basis, including the MOST wonderful fresh-squeezed orange juice! The bus ride to Mega is short and the taxi fare back is very reasonable. My husband and I would heartily recommend Nanciana. The only issue you may have if you choose the top floor is the stairs - there are two flights so this would not be the best choice for anyone with mobility issues. Of course the other problem is getting in at all. Nanciana and the attached Robertoson have many repeat visitors so reservations are scarce. Thanks, Nancy and Bob, for a super Bucerías experience!

Super good time!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Suites Nancianas was fabulous. The suites are even better than described and the photos are a little touch of the tranquill atmosphere that has been created by the hosts. Everything is clean and so lovely. Everywhere we looked was an interesting piece of art or painting. The owners were super helpful even to lending their own alarm clock when we needed to get up early one morning. The next time we go to Bucerias we will defintely stay at Suites Nancianas. The beach is five minutes away , walking. Encore and Meson Bay were our favorite places to eat as well as the taco stands along the streets. We loved our time in Bucerias.

Fantastic get away in Bucerias

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Suites Nanciana over Christmas....We had been eyeing up this beautiful property every time we were in Bucerias and were thrilled to find this gem was on VRBO. Nancy and Bob are amazing people and great hosts. We stayed in the unit on the 2nd floor, front of the house over looking the pool. It was Fantastic. We had our privacy in the unit or on our spacacious deck with a full size dining table and deck chairs for casual sitting or had access to everyone if we wanted to join in....such as Happy Hour or when people were lounging by the pool. Bob and Nancy have done MANY renovations to both Homes and it makes the property more open and spacious between the houses....good spot for happy hour or evening cocktails in the middle by the pool. Our upper level unit had renovations in the kitchen. The Queen bed is in the Cupula so you look up into the air from the bed and it goes on forever....

The other guests also staying while we were there were fantastic and we made great friends and we hope to be lucky enough to spend our next Mexican Adventure back in Bucerias with Bob and Nancy.

If you have never been to Bucerias, this property is a great central location. Great restuarants within walking distance; Sandrina's, Karen's Place, Sweet Thing, El Brujo around the corner. Mezzogiorno about a 10 minute walk past Bucerias market. There is a local store right around the corner up from Mark's and try the fruit and veggies off the local trucks that come by....Fantastic....

You won't be disappointed if you are lucky enough to stay in suites Nanciana or Suites Robertson!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending ten days in

January 2009 at Nancy and Bob's wonderful place in

Bucerias. This was our second trip to Bucerias and

we very much enjoyed the area and our

accommodations. We had the two bedroom

upstairs apartment and it was spacious, private,

and had everything we could possibly need. The

property is well situated close to the beach and just

a few blocks from the center of town. There are

wonderful restaurants within a few blocks. We went

to our favorite breakfast place, Luna Luna, every

morning for a leisurely brunch after a long walk on

the beach. We spent many evenings watching the

sunset and enjoying a drink at Karen's beach front

restaurant and bar just a block away.

Bucerias is the kind of town we enjoy spending time

in. There is enough of the local culture to make it

feel authentic and there are lots of amenities for

tourists. It's so convenient, yet a little off the

beaten path so you don't feel like you are in a

tourist mecca like when you are in Puerto Vallarta.

It's laid back and pleasant.

We highly recommend Nancy and Bob's place. They

are excellent hosts and will make sure you are well

cared for.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful property in Bucerias in Dec 2008 and enjoyed it immensely. We rented the 1 bedroom suite downstairs of the property shown here but we did view the upstairs 2-bedroom suite and it is great too.

The property is located on a great street and is one block away from the beach (a 2 min walk) -- four houses down the street, turn right and 4-5 houses down and you pop out on the beach next to Karen's restaurant. The beach is a public beach and is good (shallow for a long way out, glistens with gold specks in the morning, very long and uninterrupted to the south - perfect for long walks and runs) but not fantastic (some litter, muddy water). The owners provide an umbrella and beach chairs to take to the beach. One can get beers from Karen's restaurant close by. Note that Bucerias is a quieter town with a lot of retirees and older folks rather than young crowds.

The main house with the 1-bdrm suite downstairs and 2-bdrm suite upstairs are great, very clean, nicely furnished and have a very well equipped kitchen (although the ocean view from the upstairs bedroom is quite minimal). The living room has a TV and DVD player. The bedroom downstairs is not very bright but one doesn't feel like spending much time there anyway. A maid comes two or three times a week and cleans up beautifully. The seating areas in the courtyard and upstairs back patio are beautiful. The owners have put a lot of love into decorating the areas with statues and plants and furnishing comfortable chairs, chaise lounges and sofas. The 6ft deep pool in front of the casita is very nice for a quick splash after a hot walk in town. It is very discreetly hidden from passersby on the street with plants and statues. The murals in the courtyards and the inside of the house are very nice and give a very nice ambience. Accent lighting gives a warm glow to the entire property at night.

This property is connected to the owners's property next door. Their place is also very nice and they have a 2-bdrm suite above their living quarters (albeit not as beautiful as the one reviewed here). Their pool goes from 4ft to 6ft.

The property is very close to many good restaurants (Karen's, Sweet things, Mark's, Adriatico - 2 mins, Sandrinas, Luna Luna and Red Apple - 5 mins, downtown Bucerias restaurants - 10-15 mins - don't miss Tapas del Mundo). There is a laundromat 2 mins away and a convenience store 2 mins away on the other side. In fact, we cooked a couple of meals at home and at
