Secluded Casita in Lush Garden, Palapa, Small Pool, Near Beach

Family-friendly vacation home in San Francisco
LA CASITA CELESTIAL, as the name implies, is a Heavenly Place. From the moment you approach the stone-embedded welcoming mat, you’ll know that you are in for a “stellar” experience.

Its GRACIOUS CENTRAL ROOM is filled with stars – and a small but comfortable sitting area, a high-definition television with American and Canadian programming, a cozy kitchen and a small but eclectic library including books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts. As of Feb. 14, 2022 we have fiber optic internet service.

A large sliding glass door allows you to walk onto THE TERRACE WITH ITS MAGNIFICENT PALAPA, a thatched roof structure used since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs to capture sea breezes and keep COOL.

Under the palapa is your own private, cooling plunge pool (which also can be heated), and classic equipal furniture for dining. Surrounding you is lush jungle with its fascinating birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

There are TWO BEDROOMS, each with its own bath and distinctive character, filled with works of Mexican artists from all around the Republic. Keeping with the celestial theme, one bedroom celebrates the sun rising from the east, with roosters standing as a mute reminder that there is a great day a-dawning. The other celebrates the moon shining out over the Gulf of Cortez with owls keeping watch over your deep and restful sleep. To aid in that sleep, both bedrooms have ceiling fans and can be air-conditioned if needed. The bedrooms are separated by the living area, ensuring maximum privacy for guests.

CASITA CELESTIAL is part of a three-house villa -- VILLA DE VISTAS (The House of Views). LA CASA QUE CANTA (The House that Sings – 6000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 4 baths) sits on the top of the hill. EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle – 1000 sq. ft., two bedrooms, one bath) is nestled into the hillside underneath LA CASA. Another long stairway down leads you to CASITA CELESTIAL.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing property!!!
We stayed in the Casita which had everything we could possibly have needed but also had the entire property to ourselves! It is a bit out of town and off a dirt road so very thankful to have Otto meet us and guide us in the first time. Pool was fantastic for those lazy afternoons and the views and landscaping are just lovely. Beach is a quick walk down the road (take the stairs) and evenings were spent under the palapa!!! Just make sure to get your groceries on your way in!

A tropical paradise
We adored the lovely Casita Celestial! It was beautifully designed and surrounded by a jungle paradise, with tropical flowers and foliage everywhere we looked. Yes, there are 69 steps from the parking area to the lush paradise retreat, but we considered it good exercise, and there was someone there to carry our luggage when we arrived and when we left. Along each step of the way there are flowers to admire, from bougainvillea to ginger, and others I couldn't identify. Melissa and Bill invited us to join them one evening for wine and a tour of the big house where they stay when they are in town. They are an amazing couple and it's exciting to talk with them about how the property was created. They are happy to share their information of San Pancho and indeed many parts of Mexico. They have a vast amount of travel information gathered in exploring Mexico to find the wonderful artifacts with which the property is adorned. The charming town of San Pancho is about a 12 minute drive from the house, and the beach is perhaps a10 minute walk from the property. San Pancho has a selection of good restaurants, and Sayulita is a 4 km. drive from San Pancho for additional shopping and restaurants. Don't miss the Tuesday market in San Pancho. It's wonderful and even better than the Friday market in Sayulita!
