Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Larry, We had a wonderful time, your home is beautiful and we were quite comfortable there. Discovering San Pacho was quite a treat and I would recommend your home to others. The property managers were very helpful, friendly and informative. The taxi was available upon our arrival and our travel was quite smoothe. I only wish we had more time! We hope to come again, thanks so much! Carol

The house and property is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Mariposa! It is definitely as beautiful as the photos and then some! The fruit trees made us feel as though we were in the Garden of Eden. The property is really exquisite and well-maintained. The house is roomy, well-furnished and very comfortable. We were there in the hot summer and the house was an oasis!

We stayed here for 3 nights after a trip from Sayulita. The house was beautiful and clean. 3 bedrooms are true 3 bedrooms and each have their own privacy and bathroom. The house is located about 5 blocks or so from the main street and about 1/2 mile to the beach. We enjoyed watching the kittens play in the yard, roosters and chickens roaming, lizards and lots of bird watching! The outside patio is where we enjoyed most of our stay at the house.

San Pancho is a beautiful and friendly town. We will likely be back!

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home!

We were extremely comfortable at this beautiful home, very safe & secure. Extremely nice landscaper who was kind & courteous, very well maintained home. Very easy walking distance to the beach, yet tucked away from the crowds, so quiet & peaceful. Very large beautiful home.

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mariposa is a stunner... you'll be hard pressed to find its equal. The space is perfect for longer stays as it is so well furnished I was able to cook meals only needing to buy the ingredients for the recipes and use the fantastic kitchen with updated appliances to make wonderful food with super tasty local ingredients. There is a purified drinking water source in the form of a decorative 5 gallon water cooler with 2 new bottles in reserve when we checked in. The rooms each have their own air conditioning systems that work very well. The attention to detail in this house is great and furnishings are classy and comfortable. You will wish you knew enough people in town to host a cocktail party when you check out the back patio with awesome furnished brick palapa. We rented a golf cart to get around while we were there, but also took the flat 3 min walk to Av. Tercer Mundo(main St. in San Francisco) and from there only another 7 min. walk to the beach happily. The cart is very useful if you are taking or renting surf boards or body boards or other beach gear you might not want to carry back and forth. The pool is not too deep, but very clean and super relaxing. The property management office is very close and very responsive should you need any help. We will be going back for sure.

Better than home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a relaxing four nights here in early May. It was heavenly. Total privacy, amazing grounds, spacious home (even more so than the photos show). Impressive attention to detail within and around the house, in keeping with the "mariposa" theme! Loved the roaming chickens, colorful birds, geckos (and the iguana atop the rock pile across the street). The hardest part of our stay here was deciding where to have our morning coffee--the upper balcony overlooking the grounds; the covered patio downstairs; or out by the pool... We are already plotting our next stay!

Slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Walking into the property, our eyes widened! We get all this place to ourselves? How gorgeous! I loved the kitchen, the pool, the privacy, the grounds, the different bedrooms each with it's own character, and the upper patio. Staying here gives the feeling that you are in a secluded little sanctuary. Our group was a group of singles, which worked out great.

I think our whole group talked about coming back! Our stay was short, so next time we would stay longer to enjoy more of San Pancho, and hang out more at the house, cook, BBQ, make margaritas and drink them out of the classic Mexican glasses!

Thank you!

Great place to just relax and enjoy the day. Walk on the beach, go horseback riding, hike around, bird watch, sit on the beach with a cold beer. Take day trips to surrounding towns and areas. Lots of wonderful restaurants you can walk to.
