NOW, THAT SAME INTRODUCTION IN ENGLISH: Villa de Vistas is a luxurious, ecological paradise just five minutes from the beach and a twenty five-minute walk from the center of San Pancho. The Villa has three separate houses that can be rented together or individually. We have La Casa Que Canta (The Big House), which sleeps 6. La Casita Celestial, which sleeps 4. And El Nido de la Tortuga (The Nest of the Nido) which also sleeps four.
If you rent the Casa and the Nido together, you have sleeping for 10 persons. If you rent all three houses, you have comfortable accommodations for 14.
The Villa de Vistas is located on property overlooking the Pacific......a perfect destination for those seeking tranquility and natural beauty without compromising comfort...... ideal for family reunions, gatherings of friends, and life's celebrations. All three houses are artistically designed and beautifully furnished with vibrant Mexican fabrics, tiles, and museum quality arts and crafts.
Although there are many distinctive features at Villa de Vistas, these seem to be the most remarkable:
FIRST: ITS SHEER SIZE (over 8200 sq. ft.) and the thoughtful way in which the three houses and even the individual rooms are related to one another. This allows gracious spaces for groups to gather and many intimate locations for reading, reflecting, relaxing and quiet conversation.
SECOND: ITS POOL is unusually large for a vacation home in San Pancho. Not only that, but the pool was designed with families in mind. There is a large step where infants can splash in very shallow water -- a couple inches deep. There is a bench that wraps around the pool and is a delight to toddlers who can walk around and jump into their parents' arms. There is also a raised terrace which is perfect for older children to fly into the pool with masterful spins and loops. They land in water that is less than five feet deep. Also Casita Celestial has a PALAPA with its own dipping pool. Both pools can be heated for your comfort.
THIRD: ITS LOCATION. It's in the jungle, which has been tamed by a master gardener to create a botanical wonder and a home for exotic birds and native wildlife.
FOURTH: ITS GRACIOUSNESS AND AMENITIES. Each of the three kitchens has top-of-the-line appliances. All the bedrooms have king sized beds with excellent mattresses. The furniture throughout is tastefully chosen. The two televisions are large-screen, high definition with programming beamed in from Canada (and cities just across the border -- Detroit in the east, Spokane and Seattle in the west). Super high speed internet service (a rarity ion Mexico!). Pool toys. Firepit to SAFELY enjoy a campfire. Hammock. Three grills. Two cribs. Two high chairs. Children’s furniture. Full-time staff. Knowledgable, helpful, local, bi-lingual house managers. Chefs, massage therapists, baby sitters available.
"It's a veritable museum of exquisite Mexican crafts and arts."
FINALLY, THE DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER OF EACH OF THE THREE HOUSES:
HOUSE ONE: 3 BR (king) 4 BA - Sleeps 6
On the top of the hill, at street level is the main floor of the Big House, where you will find the spacious living room, dining room, kitchen (laundry and pantry), family room and guest bath. All of these rooms are essentially interconnected in one great open space. They have fabulous views of the jungle, beach and ocean. The kitchen and family room are air-conditioned.
Going UP the magnificent spiral staircase, you come to the Upper Terrace and the Master Suite with its luxurious marble bath and private sunning deck. Several of our guests have remarked that the master bath reminded them of a high-end spa.
Going DOWN the spiral staircase from the main floor you come to the bedroom floor with two large bedroom suites. One has a fabulous jungle and garden view and boasts a sitting area and dual showers; the other has a large terrace overlooking the ocean.
HOUSE TWO: 1 BR (king) 1BR (bunk), 1 BA - Sleeps 4
If you go DOWN one more flight of stairs you come to the pool deck. It is also from this level that you enter EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle), which is a completely contained home with about 900 square feet nestled under the “mother house.” The NIDO has its own kitchen, a sitting area, and is four steps from the large pool.
HOUSE THREE: 2 BR (both king suites) and 2 BA - Sleeps 4
If you go DOWN one more flight of stairs you come to the charming CASITA CELESTIAL (The Heavenly Little House) with its two bedroom suites, one celebrating the sun and the other celebrating the moon, a complete kitchen, a sitting area with its own television and DVD player. Also the CASITA has a PALAPA with a dipping pool that stays cool year around, except in the winter, when it can be heated.
Each of the three houses can be rented alone, but the entire villa is perfect for families and friends who are seeking a safe, luxurious, accommodating and beautiful vacation home.
Keywords: Villa with 3 Complete Homes, 7 Bedrooms, 8 Baths, stunning Ocean Views, 3 Heated Pools, easy walk to San Pancho Beach! Perfect for Celebrations, Reunions, Large or Small Gatherings.

This three-house complex was designed with our grandchildren very much in mind. They were either babies or not yet born when we built it.

(5) Similarly it is difficult to define the number of balconies. Suffice it to say that all levels of the CASA and the NIDO have their own terraces and all have views of the ocean. The PALAPA attached to the CASITA could also be considered a deck. It only has peek-a-boo views of the ocean. On the other hand it has marvelous views of the jungle...and a wonderful hammock for relaxing under the canopy of palms....moreless

THE BEAUTIFUL SAN PANCHO BEACH IS A FIVE-MINUTE WALK AWAY.
We have recently created a path through a lush tropical garden down to Calle Palmas. It takes about two minutes to walk down the pathway. It then takes another three minutes to walk to the beach. In addition to being extremely functional, the pathway puts you up close and personal with native plants, exotic birds and beautiful butterflies.
Year Purchased: 2009
About: A note from Melissa and Bill Roberts: Even though you will have four marvelous hosts in our San Pancho staff, we want to take a moment and introduce ourselves to you. We have lived most of our adult life in Middletown, Connecticut, where Melissa was a school social worker and Bill was a clergyman for the first half of his career and a consultant for the second half. In the 1970s we built a home on Cape Cod for our family -- we have three sons. The Cape House was very important to our family, but as the boys grew up and moved away and had children of their own, we decided to sell that house and built a three-home complex in San Pancho, which is just perfect for our family and our hosting friends and renters.
Why San Francisco, Nay., Mexico:
In 2006 two of our sons went on a surfing-scouting trip to the west coast of Mexico, found their way to San Pancho, and immediately fell in love with the town and the beach. A month later we rearranged some travel plans and went to check it out for ourselves. Well, we also loved the place. The Mexicans were very friendly and also very proud of their charming little town. The Americans and Canadians we met seemed to respect the culture and value their relationships with the residents whose families, in some cases, had lived in San Pancho for over a hundred years. It seemed that this would be an ideal place to build a home for generations of our family. We purchased this particular property with the hopes, just the hopes, that we might have a pretty good view of the ocean. As the construction progressed it became clearer and clearer that we would have not only 'a pretty good view,' but SPECTACULAR VIEWS of the ocean, the beach, the town (San Pancho), Sayulita in the distance, and, equally stunning, fantastic views of the jungle....from many different locations on the property. Although we originally called our home La Casa Que Canta, because it seemed to sing with the profundo of the ocean surf, the rustling of the palm leaves, and the chirping of the birds, we have renamed it the VILLA DE VISTAS -- the Villa of Views. As you will see the property presented some challenges since it goes sharply downhill, but Melissa (with partial assistance from three different architects) was able to change those challenges into opportunities, which allows us to have three separate homes in very close proximity to one another.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The unique benefit of renting the entire villa is that you have a lot of space in a secluded, secure, quiet setting.....with comfortably large areas for gatherings of many people......and lots of places for intimate conversations among just a few people....or just to rest and relax by yourself. THREE FEATURES THAT YOU WILL JUST LOVE: First, the pool, which has become the primary gathering place, is designed so children of all ages -- from infants to grandparents -- can feel safe as they play together. Infants can sit in a few inches of water and splash away. Toddlers can run around the benches and jump of the ledge. Adults can feel assured that their children are safe. Not only that, but the pool is heated in the winter, cooled by the rains and shade of the palm trees in the summer. And not only THAT, but there is a Jacuzzi right nearby. Second, the VILLA DE VISTAS has a fire pit on the path along side of the CASITA CELESTIAL. It's a great place to light a little campfire, toast up s'mores, sing a song, tell a tale, and just reflect on the day, or the week or life itself. The palm trees which have been there for what seems like forever and the stars above put a little perspective on our human existence. Finally, Melissa is a master gardener. Her garden in Connecticut is a showpiece. As soon as she concluded the oversight of the construction project, she turned her attention to the creation of an lush, tropical garden. She found native plants which are very happy in her garden.
