About Paula M
My favorite spot is in the hammock on the front patio of Casa Colina. Great place to watch the changing of the light as the sun moves across the sky, the flight and chase of the beautiful tropical birds, as well as the spouting of the Humpback whales as they do their yearly migration from the northern waters of Alaska to the Bay of Banderas. Also my favorite spot for reading a good book or just taking a mid day nap.
Why Paula M chose San Francisco
We never intended to buy property in Mexico. We were just on an extended trip through Mexico in our new RV. Once we discovered the beauty of the tropical paradise called 'San Pancho, we were hooked! The RV trip we had planned through Mexico and up the eastern coast of the USA, came to an abrupt end in San Pancho! That was about 18 years ago. We did eventually take an extended trip through Mexico, in addition to exploring the East Coast of the U.S. but the tropical beauty along with welcoming people of San Pancho continues to draw us back to our favorite place, San Pancho, year after year! The beauty of San Pancho inspired my husband to design our beautiful and unique home, Casa Colina. After spending numerous hours on our hill, recording the direction and times of the changing breezes, he designed 6 foot glass doors, strategically placed to take full advantage of the tropical breezes. As another way of augmenting the flow of the air, he designed the palapa roof, made of Royal Palm fronds and natural wood, that shelters the front half of the house, in addition to the coupala that sits at the peak of the roof. He then added three ceiling fans to the palapa roof in addition to hanging one in each bedroom. All his careful planning and design gives us a home that is very comfortable without the need for any air conditioning until well into the summer months. At that time, we head for the much cooler summers of the NW. I am also a music lover and my husband's additional thoughtfulness resulted in built in speakers in the front of the house, giving us the amazing effect of beautiful surround sound!
What makes this House unique
Since we discovered San Pancho and built Casa Colina, many others have continued to be drawn to this pristine paradise but we have been lucky enough to have lots of land and space between our home and our closest neighbors. We not only continue to have the kind of privacy we had when we initially built Casa Colina but both our ocean and jungle views have and will remain unobstructed. The increased population of San Pancho has brought more varied and excellent restaurants, a golf course that is open to the public, a polo field hosting Friday evening polo matches, festivals throughout the year with one of the annual highlights being the February music festival! As more visitors from all over the world have continued to discover San Pancho, our local hospital has also enlarged and upgraded it's facilities. No matter where you are in San Pancho, the hospital is approximately 10 minutes away!!!
