VILLA DE VISTAS -- Large (8200 sq ft), three separate houses, stunning views, close to beach.
Just a glimpse -- a Zen View, as it's called -- of the Pacific Ocean waiting to welcome you!
This gate brings you into the Villa de Vista with three complete homes.  Do you want 1 or 2 or 3!
It can be confusing.  So we want to underscore that the VILLA has three absolutely precious homes.
You get the sense -- and it's correct -- that a master gardiner created this tropical paradise.
LA CASA QUE CANTA is larger then the other two houses -- EL NIDO (the Nest) and CASITA CELESTIAL.
Pass through the gate and you are surrounded by a tropical garden that extends far down the property.
One of the many stunning VISTAS from this VILLA.  You look straight out to the Pacific Ocean.
The Entrada -- it's the Spanish word for entrance....and this one almost throws you into a trance.
The sitting area of the living room is comfotable.  Great place to read, to chat, to think.
The rooms flow one to another -- from the living room to the dining room to the kitchen.
Although the main dining room seats ten comfortably, there are many places to set a table.
The space works in such a way that you move inside and out without noticing the difference.
The kitchen is large with a big workspace and top-of-the-line appliances.
The kitchen flows nicely into the family room, where you have a large screen, hi-def TV and DVD.
The family room has wrap-around windows with views of the ocean and the jungle.
The most stunning views are from this upper terrace, but you have views from every floor of La Casa!
Just a quick peak at the pool down below.  It seems to have a magnetic draw on children -- all ages.
Go DOWN the stairs to the bedroom floor -- two large bedrooms with spacious sitting areas.
Every bath -- there are 9 in the VILLA -- is distinctive.  This has tiles from Dolores Hidalgo.
There are sitting areas inside and out.
We are now leaving LA CASA, the Big House, and going down stairs to the pool deck.
The VILLA is amazing -- it is really architechturally complex and big -- but has so many cozy places
Just can't resist checking out the pool,but let's go next into EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA.
El Nido de la Tortuga -- The Nest of the Turtle
The Nest of the Turtle is snuggled right under LA CASA.  Its 1000 square feet have all you need.
El Nido has a compact kitchen with quality appliances and a view of the birds outside the kitchen.
Did we mention that EL NIDO is intimate.  Here's the master bedroom.  It has a garden view.
The kids just love this.  It's a bunk bed that's like a tree house.
Did we mention EL NIDO is romantic.  Bath has dual showers and turtles at your feet.
Okay, Okay.  Now we will show you the pool, designed with families in mind.
Look closely.  See the turtles on the wall?  And the flowers all around?  And the chairs?  Perfect!
Look closely again.  See the safe platform for infants?  The walk around bench for todlers?
Now we take the stairs  through more garden to the CASITA CELESTIAL -- Heavenly House.
Casita Celestial -- The Heavenly Little House
A keen sense of anticipation as you approach this precious casita.
The stone welcome mat hints at what to expect -- stars, sun, moon, life abundant.
The moment you cross the threshold you are surrounded with heavenly bodies....ahead is the PALAPA.
The comfortable sitting area for reading, watching TV, quiet relaxation.
In addition to the Mexican artifacts there is a large-screen, hi-def TV with programming in English
Two bedroom suites -- this one honoring the sun.  Notice the artwork and colors and views.
The sun bathroom with distinctive tiling and double sinks.
And here the bedroom honoring the moon.  Precious.
In CASITA CLESTIAL there is a certain symmetry.  Here's the moon bath.
More commissioned artwork.  Owls to watch over you as you sound of the surf lulls you to sleep.
Lest there be any doubt, a PLAPA is a living room used by MezoAmericans for generations.
Under the PALAPA is a dipping pool and a marvelous place to sit  and chat
All three houses - LA CASA, EL NIDO and the CASITA - are located in a lush tropical garden.
The pathway leads from the houses down the hill to a road and then a few minutes over to the beach.
The garden is punctuated by special spots.  Here is a sitting area that converts to a fire pit.
San Pancho is a bird sanctuary.  We are fortunate to have rare birds living in our garden.
A little further down the path and you will find a hammock grove.  Perfectly peaceful.
A little further down the path, passing the shower, and you're on your way to the beach.
About two minutes on the jungle road and you arrive at the northern most point of the pristine beach
Turn around and look up and you'll see the VILLA DE VISTA high on th hill.
VILLA DE VISTAS -- The Villa of Views -- is aptly named.  You see the beach.....
....You see the amazing sunsets.....
.....and then even more amazing sunsets.....
You feel so connected to the sun that it seems as if the sun  is also seing you.....
.....Eventually the sun slips into the Pacific.....
......and then, life goes on, and you see the moon over the bay.  The whole thing is simply magical!

“Simply Amazing inside and out!”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We(6 adults, 4 teenagers, 3 kids) headed down to San Pancho for a family gathering from a Saturday to Saturday. Everything about this trip far exceeded our expectations. We flew into Puerto Vallarta and headed to Costco & The Mega for food, drinks and exchanging of money, then were on our way to San Pancho. Met up with Bob from the rental company(wonderful man) and he escorted us to the house and showed us how everything worked. The house(which we rented all 3) was so beautiful, spacious, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The casita below the main pool was a wonderful little get away with the paylapa and dipping pool. We(adults) found ourselves hanging out there at night after dinner and soaking in the pool. The view out to the ocean from any of the terraces was just breathe taking. The beach is about a 5 minute walk through the jungle path and town is about 15 minute walk. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, the water was warm & so blue and the waves were huge. Our all kids(ages 10-17) were able to stay on shore and play in them, but I wouldn't advise younger kids as the surf and rip current was very strong at this time of year. The town of San Pancho was filled with such wonderful and friendly people, cute little stores, a couple mini markets, and amazing restaurants (Maria's, El Ola Roca, Marplata, & many more). We ventured to the town of Sayulita (15 minutes by car) for some shopping and site seeing. This was definitely a surf town and would recommend surfing here. Another great town filled with friendly people and great food (street tacos are amazing). We were given a lot of information regarding the house and a lot of advice by the owners prior to heading down and everything was dead on. We can't wait to head back in the near future and stay longer. One week just wasn't long enough!
