A note from Melissa and Bill Roberts: Even though you will have four marvelous hosts in our San Pancho staff, we want to take a moment and introduce ourselves to you. We have lived most of our adult life in Middletown, Connecticut, where Melissa was a school social worker and Bill was a clergyman for the first half of his career and a consultant for the second half. In the 1970s we built a home on Cape Cod for our family -- we have three sons. The Cape House was very important to our family, but as the boys grew up and moved away and had children of their own, we decided to sell that house and built a three-home complex in San Pancho, which is just perfect for our family and our hosting friends and renters.
In 2006 two of our sons went on a surfing-scouting trip to the west coast of Mexico, found their way to San Pancho, and immediately fell in love with the town and the beach. A month later we rearranged some travel plans and went to check it out for ourselves. Well, we also loved the place. The Mexicans were very friendly and also very proud of their charming little town. The Americans and Canadians we met seemed to respect the culture and value their relationships with the residents whose families, in some cases, had lived in San Pancho for over a hundred years. It seemed that this would be an ideal place to build a home for generations of our family.
We purchased this particular property with the hopes, just the hopes, that we might have a pretty good view of the ocean. As the construction progressed it became clearer and clearer that we would have not only 'a pretty good view,' but SPECTACULAR VIEWS of the ocean, the beach, the pueblo of San Pancho, Sayulita in the distance, and, equally stunning, fantastic views of the jungle.
