  • Family retreat

    "Our family of 6 (kids 6, 7, 11, 13) really had a wonderful stay here. Wendy was very responsive and helpful prior to and during our stay. The house had everything we needed, was a super quick walk to the beach, and merely a 5 minute drive from the main strip of San Pancho. There's currently a bit of construction on a new house next door, but the workers didn't start before 7:30am and things were quiet again by 2-3pm. Weekends were generally silent. The house is tucked away in a quiet and safe neighborhood and we had no problems exploring the area. Our favorite restaurants were Barracuda (lunch Thursday - Sunday was very reasonable, amazing seafood salad and ceviche!), Maria's (personable service, really nice atmosphere, good drinks), and Victor's Taco's (cash only, but our entire family of 6 stuffed ourselves for only $18 US, and Victor is a gem!). There's a good grocery (cash only, their ATM charges a higher rate) just around the corner from Victor's and Maria's that has lots of basics, fresh fruit and veggies, good prices. As for the beach close to Casa Sonrisa, the surf was intimidating at first, but then we realized at boogie boarding on the North end (close to the rocks, watch the Mexican surfers) was really really fun! If you're looking for a more younger kid friendly beach, head South toward town or try Punta Negra close to Punta Mita (easy waves) or the South end of the Lo De Marcos beach. I would not pay for fishing or whale watching at Punta de Mita, instead just go to the Lo De Marcos beach and there are guys with boats there--much more reasonable ($200 pesos ($10 US) per person hourly). All in all, we had an awesome time at Casa Sonrisa and would definitely do it again! Thanks Wendy!"

  • Paradise

    "Five adult couples stayed here for a long weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. The site is perfect - the staff was great -- and the food was delicious. It was absolutely perfect."

  • Casa Cielito is magical!

    "We stayed at Casa Cielito with a group of friends for our wedding and we had the experience of a lifetime. It is a beautiful and unique property with beautiful artwork, a big pool, spacious and luxurious rooms...and right on the beach to boot! Every person/couple had enough space and privacy to feel like they could relax and the common areas are all open and just lovely.The staff took such good care of us - from the house manager, to the chef, to the security person...they were all wonderful. The chef is amazing! Every meal was awesome. I really can't say enough good things about Casa Cielito. I only wish we could rewind and do the whole experience over again! I will also say that all of the people at the property management company, San Pancho Rentals, went above and beyond to help us and all our guests staying at other properties. They were absolutely outstanding."

  • Amazing home!

    "This house is every thing it promises, and it is as amazing as other reviewers have described. The pictures and descriptions are accurate and speak for themselves. I will comment on how accommodating, professional, and helpful the owners and staff were in the process of booking the reservation and during our stay. For instance, after arriving, our group of 14 friends rented 4 golf carts to get around San Pancho (I highly recommend this choice, and San Pancho Rentals was great to work with). Due the power needs of charging 4 carts simultaneously, we kept tripping the breaker box. Not only did the staff keep helping us fix this issue, they came out the next day and installed an entirely new electrical outlet to allow us to charge our carts. We had a slight issue with an A/C unit in a bedroom, and they were there 10 minutes later to fix it. I can't say enough wonderful things about how professional, quick, and helpful everyone was during our stay. Our group plans to book this house again, we have told everyone how wonderful our stay was, and I highly, highly recommend this property to any interested parties. If you book this house, be sure to take time to read the wonderful books the owners compiled about the process and philosophy behind building this house; it increases your appreciation for its beauty. The documents the owners sent after booking were also extremely helpful. My non-property related tip would be to book Diva Tours to pick you up from the PV airport, ask them to stop by Mega (a huge grocery store), stock up on all your supplies and food, head to the house, and begin your vacation! The entire experience was amazing, and I genuinely hope to return to this property for more wonderful reunions with friends!"
