We have vacationed in San Pancho for almost 20 years and with each visit comes the desire to stay a bit longer than the last. This spot is a wonderful place to have a relaxing, quiet, and enjoyable vacation.
Until this year our experience has been to rent Villa II that is comprised of two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Both bedrooms are spacious and afford plenty of privacy. They are on the lower level of the casa and each has its own entrance from the patio adjacent to the pool. The linens and bedspreads are colorful and attractive and each room is tastefully furnished. This year the new owners of the property now offer for rent Villa I, the one-room casita also on the property. Since there are only two of us to accommodate we decided to try out the one-room casita that comes with plenty of outdoor living space.
The layout of the casita is very spacious and contains a full sized kitchen, dining table, living room area with a king-size bed, and a pleasant bathroom. The kitchen has modern appliances and is well equipped for real cooking or just right for snacks, drinks, etc.
The house itself is nicely decorated in a modern and charming Mexican style. It feels like visiting someone’s home. There is plenty of outdoor dining space overlooking the beach below and the ocean as far as the eye can see. Nothing like having breakfast on the deck while watching the birds and fishing boats, spotting whales at play, or losing yourself to the calming influence of the ocean immediately in front you. It is perfect for couples looking for a breathtaking view of the ocean from an elevated vantage point.
Joel and Jesse, staff at Pancho Villa, try to make guests feel comfortable and at home. They are a delightful couple always willing to help you out in any way they can. We feel like they are part of our family.
The beach at San Pancho is beautiful and uncrowded—a perfect spot to soak up the sun, take a walk, hunt for shells, surf the waves, read, or watch the pelicans dive for fish—they never miss! The town of San Pancho is within easy walking distance of Pancho Villa I and II (either by the beach or by road) and has many restaurants, unique gift shops and small grocery stores. Occasionally during the week vendors come through the neighborhoods of San Pancho selling fresh fruits and vegetables and sometimes shrimp and other seafood. The town is also well located to go exploring other beaches and towns up and down the coast.
We had such a good time and enjoyed our vacation so much that we will be returning to Villa I and San Pancho again next year. Hasta luego!
