About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Casita Cielo Azul is located in the tranquil little coastal pueblo of San Francisco, known locally as San Pancho, in Nayarit, Mexico. Its location, approximately 35 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, provides convenience and an opportunity to “get away from it all” in our quiet, relaxing village.

Casita Cielo Azul is located two and a half blocks from the beach, was newly constructed in 2007. Check our casitaazulcom for more pictures.

The first floor at Casita Cielo Azul has 2 separate Casitas available, 'Angela' and 'Kiley'. They offer private bedrooms (queen size), each with private baths and a full shared kitchen. Each unit has a private terrace leading out to the pool and surrounding shared patio and palapa dining room and grill area.

The second floor Casita is ALL ONE UNIT, called, 'Nico'. Nico offers 1 bedroom with a queen size bed and a second bedroom/living room with 2 twin size beds. These bedrooms both have entrances to the shared, double sink bathroom. Also, each bedroom has a door that leads out to Nico's large private terrace. There you'll find a full kitchen and dining area. A spiral staircase leads guests staying in Nico, to the rooftop deck and kitchen garden where stunning sunsets can be viewed.

Each of the 3 units (2 down, 1 up) can be rented separately.

Easy to locate in San Pancho by its distinctive stone wall, built by a local maestro, Casita Cielo Azul offers an atmosphere and setting that provides the perfect backdrop for a tranquil getaway. After stepping through the gate you’ll follow our pathway which meanders through the garden past the garden seating for Cafe Mañana, our "seasonal" coffee shop. Cafe Mañana is only open JAN-APRIL. You then pass through another gate which separates the house and the shop keeping the house and surrounding area private from the shop. You continue to follow the path which we have filled with tropical plantings. You will then find yourself on the terra cotta patio surrounding the pool leading you to the house framed in palms.

Depending on the season, you’ll find a variety of restaurants in town, from taco stands, beach , or fine dining. The beach is rarely crowded, even during high season. There you can enjoy watching the diving pelicans, or sitting under a palapa sipping on something with an umbrella. Catch a glimpse of a passing whale or dolphin, or take a walk down to the estuary, where a variety of tropical birds can be found. At the end of the day don’t miss the opportunity to join the locals on the beach for another breathtaking sunset in San Pancho.

Our house is a quick trip from Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport. When you arrive, grab your bags, hop in cab or if you’re familiar with traveling in Mexico, board the local bus and head out to San Pancho. IF YOU PREFER, CONTACT US ABOUT PREARRANGED TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

About Lincoln and Jill Hampton

For years we traveled extensively throughout Mexico purchasing art and artefacts for our Folk Art Store in Evanston, Illinois, Casita Azul. We closed the shop in Evanston when we opened our coffee shop, Cafe Mañana, located in San Pancho on the very front part of our property. Again, Cafe Mañana is only open JAN - APRIL. The knowledge gained from staying in various hotels, B&B’s and resorts, was used to create our home, Casita Cielo Azul. Our philosophy when traveling has always been to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. Take a walk, go to the beach, sit on the terrace and read, or do nothing but catch up on your thoughts. With that in mind, our rooms open to the outdoors and we encourage you to get out and enjoy your stay in San Pancho.

We just had an amazing week at Casita Cielo Azul. We went 3 couples and we rented the whole house, which is advisable since this way you can have all the wonderful spots of the house when you like and your peace is guaranteed.

The superior room is a luxury, with a large bathroom and a second room with two extra beds (perfect for children if you have them). The two lower rooms are very nice too, they are identical and each with its full bathroom. Both kitchens are well equipped and everything works properly, it is not necessary to bring anything.

The pool area is undoubtedly the best of the house, with a giant pool, an outdoor dining table under a palapa that is a work of art and a grill area for spectacular outdoor cooking. All equipped with lights, instruments, sun chairs, chairs, etc that work perfect as everything in the house. Garden plants are wonderful and well maintained.

The location can not be better, one block from the main street (tercer mundo), where we started a nice 2 minute walk to the beach! America Latina is a very quiet street with everything you need (mini market, pharmacy, restaurants, etc). Italian Restaurant Dolce Jardin (almost in front of the house) highly recommended.

San Pancho is a small town, very rich in flora and fauna, with spectacular beaches in a peaceful sea of ​​perfect temperature. A few minutes walk (20) there are very pretty virgin beaches to spend a day with beach umbrellas and beach chairs (included in casita cielo azul) and a cooler with cold beers and ceviche! A spectacular day.

The truth is that I can not think of anything to improve in the Casita Cielo Azul, it shows impeccable care of its owners, worried about every detail and that everything works perfectly.

Thank you very much for everything Angela, Lync and Jill, really a pleasure to stay in your magical House.

Cristobal, Catalina and Friends.

Idyllic and restful spot!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to San Pancho for years. It is an idyllic, small fishing village with a mile-long (nearly empty) beach and jungle roads for walking and enjoying the sun. I actually hate to tell anyone about it.

I have rented houses and stayed in a wide variety of places in the village but I am now done looking. Casita Cielo Azul is a perfect combination of quiet and privacy, as well as being close to the restaurants and the beach. The space is stunning - a lush, blooming garden, plenty of shade and sun, a well appointed and traditionally styled home, with lovely artwork. They have the best pool in San Pancho, as far as I am concerned. You are just about the only guests as they can accommodate only a small number of people in their peaceful oasis.

They also own a coffee shop at the front of the property, separated by a dense little garden, where the hosts serve hand-roasted coffee and delicious little breakfast pastries. Locals and tourists sit and listen to curated music, chat, read, and enjoy the cool breezes of the morning.

I travel to relax and have time to make art. Casita Cielo Azul is the perfect quiet retreat to get renewed, restored and energized in the incredible setting with delightful hosts.

Owner's Response: Leslie, Thank you so much for your kind words about our home in San Pancho. We could not be more thrilled that you not only found us but enjoy coming back. The day you came into the coffee shop, and then discovered the house was truly a banner day for us as you are the perfect type of guest. You use the house, garden and pool in a way that seems to bolster the relaxing, art-filled get-away you've told us you were seeking. Can't wait to see you again, Jill and Linc

The best relaxing mexican vacation

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love San Pancho, Mexico, a small but inviting town on the Pacific with loads of charm and the best restaurants. But it wouldn't be such a relaxing and fun vacation for me if not for Lincoln and Jill, the propeitors of Casita Cielo. Very private but close to the hub of everything. Lincoln's quaint coffee shop with the best coffee around and believe me, being from Seattle, I am very fussy about my coffee, is steps away from the most private and magnificent pool to swim in. And did I mention Jill's homemade pastries to go with at least one cuppa java? I love the privacy that the amazing garden's provide me if I am swimming, reading or making art. Just writing about this makes me want the next 6 months to whiz by and I will be there again in my little secret paradise. Couldn't recommend this more highly.

Owner's Response: Pam, A bonus to having wonderful guests who return year after year is the friendships that are created. You have brought such joy AND laughter into our days while you are staying at our home, Casita Cielo Azul, in San Pancho. Here's to another year of floating your morning away in the pool and creating beautiful art in the afternoon. Can't wait to see your smiling face again! Linc and Jill

My husband and I have stayed at Casita Cielo Azul twice

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at Casita Cielo Azul twice and we look forward to returning again as soon as we can!

We enjoyed the sunny house, decorated with folk art and the rooms that are as comfortable as they are beautiful. The location allowed us to feel part of a small town and yet was removed enough feel very private.  It is an easy and interesting walk into town, to the beach or – for the adventurous - into the jungle.  The town offers good food choices and fun shopping.  


We also liked being able to cook some of our own meals and sharing the comfortable House experience with friends.  We also loved the pool and I was able to swim my laps, and enjoy the sun.


The fresh fish and margaritas that we had on the beach while watching the sunset were almost as magical as being there the day the baby sea turtles hatched and made their way back to the sea.


Serene, secure and beautiful- next year we want to rent the house and bring the whole family!

We rented all of Casita Azul for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The casita is faithful to the heart-felt description online. While the casita is cosy, the pool and garden are quite large and very enjoyable. A half-block away from the "tiendita" could tempt you to stay at the pool with your favorite fresh drink. The architecture is appeasing with beautiful smooth

arches. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Makes a nice

stay in colorful town of San Pancho. Thank you! Thanks again and congratulations for your nice property,

David, Brussels, Belgium
