San Pancho retains the richness of its history and culture while providing amenities that make it a unique stopping place for those who want an authentic Mexican experience and yet close to Puerto Vallarta.

The house, caressed with ocean breezes througout the day and mountain air drifting in through the night, is open and bright with high ceilings and large windows that welcome light and magnificent views Thatched roofed terraces, patios and a roof garden provide ample space for quiet contemplation - perfect for celebrating the sunrise and the setting sun. Designed to crate the feeling of the outside in, the house is inviting with its simple Mexican decor.

The town and beach are a leisurely walk from the house. Guests are able to access polo and equestrian activities at the La Partrona Club and a 9-hole golf course at Las Huertas Club, both in town.

Nuestro Sueno is ideal for retirees who want a home away from home or for those on sabbatical writing a book or working on special projects. Perfect for snow birds wanting to nest in the warmth and quiet of a unique beach town, yoga groups who want an inviting practice place or those looking for a romantic getaway.

Nuestro Sueno is available from October - May; special accommodations can be made for long term lease.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nuestro Sueño is an unbelievable place. The views from the terraces alone justifies the entire trip. This is not a hotel ocean view where you stick your head out the window to see the water; this is 300 degrees of unobstructed views of jungle mountains and the Pacific Ocean. We spent most of our time there enjoying the breeze which blows almost constantly. Your trip could be a complete success without leaving that spot, and after a couple of Federico's special margaritas you may not be able to leave anyway. But if you didn't leave the terraces you would miss out on the huevos rancheros at Celia's, which is something you really do not want to miss. I promise. San Pancho is not for everyone. It is not Cancun, or Puerto Vallarta or anything like that. There are no big restaurants or bars, and you will have to be as patient with people's limited English as they will always be with your limited Spanish. It is quiet ; it is relaxing; it can be adventurous (If you choose to explore and snorkel at some of the remote beaches in the area, that is. There were more sting rays than I have ever seen before, not dangerous, but amazing to see. The roads are rough, but the destinations are definitely worthwhile). I have been back just two days and it is a place I miss already

Game Changer in San Pancho!

  • 5 of 5

Our seven weeks in this delightful hilltop house was nothing short of soul-renewing. San Pancho is a magical town and Nuestro Sueño is *the* spot to soak in all the mesmerizing sounds and views.

Federico, our gracious host, soon became family. He met us at the house and personally drove us around the village. He has a wealth of knowledge about where to go and what to do in San Pancho-- and really Mexico. Federico is very responsive and proactive, incredibly generous and worldly.

Memories of sitting on the porch after dinner to catch the sunset is etched in our family's memories. The rooftop area offers even more fantastic views of the enchanting mountains on one side, the beach on the other, and the ethereally lit sky with stars that light your path.

The king size bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable with quality sheets. The small second bedroom is upstairs and has its own balcony. This is an open concept house that suits families well. There is also an independent studio apartment downstairs for additional people which as its own bathroom- perfect for multi-family vacations. The two nicely appointed full bathrooms in the main house have stand up showers that have great water pressure-- a rare treat. The fully equipped kitchen let us cook many meals with joy.

The house has high ceilings and large sliding glass doors, so the main living room is bathed in natural light and stays cool all day thanks to strong ceiling fans. We worked from home some, and you cannot ask for a better office view than the one from the dinning room table. The wifi was fast and reliable; and there is a house phone for local calls and to the US.

We loved being in San Pancho but away from the cacophony of the busy downtown. The hill up to the house is great exercise! We felt so healthy by the time we left. The walk to the main street is short and we met a lot of our friendly local neighbors. There is a small bodega right down the hill for basic staples-- milk, honey, onions. This was super convenient for those days you run out something.

Teresa came to see us once a week for a thorough cleaning. She and her dad, Senor Miguel (who takes care of the beautiful grounds), embody the spirit of San Pancho: graceful, hard-working, kind and welcoming.

Nuestro Sueño is truly a retreat in the truest sense. The house, like the village, has soul. It is where you make memories; it's where you become part of the magic and tapestry.

A great, relaxing holiday !

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back from our third visit to Nuestro Sueño. This stunning villa offers indoor/outdoor harmony and comfort at the highest level. This place is perfectly situated to admire the view of the sea and town. This house was set up perfect for our family of 6 members. The house is fantastic with everything you would need to have a great, relaxing holiday. The staff were lovely, providing a 5 star experience with ease and comfort.

We truly had an amazing experience and look forward to going back!

Amazing home in an amazing town!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Federico's home, our expectations were exceeded. We were greeted by Theresa, Federico's housekeeper, who gave us the run-down on all of the features of the house, and her father who takes care of the amazing garden around the property. The view of the ocean and the sunset in the evening is so amazing, that we actually made sure that we were back at the house so that we didn't miss it. The view of the jungle and the sunrise from the rooftop is equally impressive, and quickly became part of our daily routine. The bed in the master suite is very comfortable, and if you leave the windows and blinds open, you wake-up to the view and the sounds of the ocean. The house is very clean, and well equipped with everything you need for cooking (good pots and pans, and a charcoal barbeque). There's plenty of purified drinking water, beach towels, and a lot of comfortable outdoor seating.

We were very pleased with our decision not to rent a car. The house is an easy 10 minute walk to the heart of San Pancho, where we found many restaurants that served a variety of delicious food, which Federico was very helpful in suggesting.

We would definitely recommend Villa Nuestro Sueno to anyone thinking about staying in San Pancho, and we can't wait to go back and visit.

Beyond Bueno!

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted to see and experience Nuestro Sueno. Everything in person far exceeded our expectations. The villa is nestled up on a hill which provides peace and lovely views. There are several terraces with a variety of scenery, and the rooftop is an added bonus. All amenities inside were top notch and the beds were most comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking in and the hammock was used daily. Its easy access to town - everything is so close - and the hike back home always did us a world of good, especially with margaritas to make once we got there;-) Federico was on top of all details and quick to respond when we had a question. This one is not to be missed!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with friends at Casa Nuestro Sueno. The house is beautiful and well equipped but the views are the jewel of this rental. The walk to town is a relative short one, you do need to be in good shape for the hike back up the driveway. It is worth it for the view. San Pancho is charming with plenty of nice restaurants and shops. I highly recommend this vacation getaway.

Magical Place to Relax and Regenerate

  • 5 of 5

‘Relax and Regenerate’ are the essential words I would use to describe our experience of renting Villa Nuestro Sueno. We had a whole month, from Dec. 14 – Jan. 14, to enjoy San Pancho and the beautiful house on the hill. We wanted to get in shape, so each day we walked up and down the hill, did yoga on the deck, walked the beautiful beach at San Pancho, and ate delicious vegetables and fresh fish at home and in the many excellent restaurants. We became stronger, leaner, bronzer, and more flexible day by day. By the time we left, we felt and looked 10 years younger! It took some time to remember how to relax, and each day we relaxed more deeply. The house, with its incredible vistas, star viewing from the roof, aesthetic interiors, gorgeous gardens, fresh ocean breezes, and numerous decks, was an integral part of our relaxation. Even now, back home, if I want to relax, I imagine sitting out on the deck looking toward the ocean at sunset, and I go into a natural state of deep relaxation. Federico made our visit easy and pleasant – he is helpful, sincere, good at solving problems, and has a lot of great tips about the area. Whenever we had an issue, we easily contacted him and he resolved it. I highly recommend ‘Our Dream’ as a magical retreat home, a place to fall in love - or more deeply in love, a place to enjoy air and sun and sky and ocean, a place to dream. Would we come back? Yes, in a heartbeat. We are already imagining it!
