My wife and I and our teenage daughter rented this house through San Pancho Rentals over the Christmas holidays 2017.
This house was perfect, and outfitted extremely well. It was clean, all of the beds, linens, towels etc all seemed to be new. The Pool was clean and refreshing, the deck chairs and hammock were all in great condition.
The views were amazing (both ocean and jungle), the house was quiet and and there was even Wifi during a busy mexican Christmas season!
The walk to town may be long for some, but we enjoyed it at least twice per day (20 mins via the beach and 30 mins via the streets). There are modes of transportation available to rent, but we didn't bother for the 9 days.
The rental company, the staff (Irma and Elvira) and the owner , Marilyn were all awesome. We would rent this house again in an instant!
Third and last time in this once dream house. It is evident that the property urgently needs maintenance in the most basic equipment and amenities: cloggged shower, noisy A/C, leaking WC, NO WiFi... I think the owner should pay attention to details (the fee per day is not a bargain) and the property managers should take care of the standars requested for the properties they manage.
It is a loss for the Nayarit Area and an experience I would recommend to no one.
SAN PANCHO is a growing town w local fish, poultry & sun ripened fruits, nuts & vegetables. The most I spent at a local restaurant was $35 CDN w fresh caught shrimp, sushi tuna, greens, beer, wine, superb coffee + tip. Locals were friendly, kind & graciously patient w my lack of Spanish. El Indio & the local market have all you need w the exception of fresh fish while restaurants & street vendors serve up incredible local fare & Mediterranean cuisine. The pool was a nice reprieve at the end of a day however a new Casa has recently been built where a full, ocean view is no longer visible. Neighbouring residents were quiet, accommodating & kind to offer the occasional ride to town. The ocean is magnificent & a short walk down the steep, cobblestone road & you'll sleep like a baby w the mighty surf pounding the nearby shoreline. Birds & the flora & fauna of the jungle are a sight to behold. Snorkelling & sailing is unbelievable. At $100 CDN p night pp (x2) the Casa was a little pricey but if you're looking for a home away from home, look no further.
Everything reviewers have said is true! This is a great house with a FABULOUS view. The pool is clean and it gets lots of sun.... The hammock by the pool is restive and wonderful ... If you want to be away from the crowd, this is where it is. It's an easy walk (down a short but steep hill, however; if you have bad knees, it could be problematic) to get to the beach. At this end of San Pancho, the beach is quiet, too. So nice..... The beds/mattresses are hard. We took the cushions from the couch and put the bottom sheet over them; it helped. The pillows leave something to be desired, too. And, lastly, if you expect to go back and forth to town at night, I recommend renting a golf cart or car. The streets are cobblestone and rough and there aren't streetlights. It's shorter to walk the beach, but again - no lighting at night. Although I felt safe, I felt better when we traversed town/house in a golf cart ... The house itself is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there ..... We'll be back!
Casa de Suenos is an excellent ocean view home with a world class view minutes from the beach. Opulent it's not but has everything you need for a great getaway!
Comfortable, convenient and a short walk to town. It's in the Costa Azul area situated at the north end of the San Pancho beach. We quite enjoyed our time there and would look to visit again in the future.
La casa de los Sueños is a very handsome, simple property just steps away from the beach with a magnificent view and a lovely pool. You may enjoy the morning birds singing as well as the seagulls passing by above, or the exuberance of the tropical vegetation. You may walk to San Pancho downtown in just 15 to 20 minutes.
I particularly like the honesty of the interiors, suitable for a beach house, with no carpets, fancy furniture, expensive fabrics or curtains, that makes you feel in a relax mood taking care of nothing besides your vacation.
I only had a concern with the WIFI service, which Fernando, the manager, solved within hours.
The kitchen is very well equipped and ready to be used. The housekeeper is a very gentle lady. I hope to come back very soon.
Loved our week at Casa de Suenos! The view was amazing and the sound of the waves crashing was what we wanted to hear. This casa is located about a mile from downtown and up a rather steep hill but it is a short walk to a beautiful beach that you practically have to yourself. We had a rental car but we still walked into town every day along the beach. Our house cleaner, Elmira, was a delight even if she could not speak English. We just faked it! There are many great places to eat in San Francisco/San Pancho (our favorite was Maria's) and don't miss the Saturday market.
