VILLA DE VISTAS is a luxurious ecological paradise just five minutes from the beach and a twenty minute walk from the center of San Pancho. It has three separate homes to be rented as one property -- LA CASA QUE CANTA (The Big House), EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (the Nest of the Turtle), and CASITA CELESITAL. It is located on a stunning property overlooking the Pacific......a perfect destination for those seeking tranquility and natural beauty without compromising comfort...... ideal for family reunions, gatherings of friends, and life's celebrations. All three houses are artistically designed and beautifully furnished with vibrant Mexican fabrics, tiles, and museum quality arts and crafts.
Although there are many distinctive features at villa de vistas, these seem to be the most remarkable:
FIRST: ITS SHEER SIZE (over 8200 sq. ft.) and the thoughtful way in which the three houses and even the individual rooms are related to one another. This allows gracious spaces for groups to gather and many intimate locations for reading, reflecting, relaxing and quiet conversation.
SECOND: ITS POOL is unusually large for a vacation home in San Pancho. Not only that, but the pool was designed with families in mind. There is a large step where infants can splash in very shallow water -- a couple inches deep. There is a bench that wraps around the pool and is a delight to toddlers who can walk around and jump into their parents' arms. There is also a raised terrace which is perfect for older children to fly into the pool with masterful spins and loops. They land in water that is less than five feet deep. Right next to the family pool is a HOT TUB where the jumpers can go to keep their muscles warm for the next performance! Also Casita Celestial has a PALAPA with its own dipping pool. All three pools can be heated for your comfort.
THIRD: ITS LOCATION. It's in the jungle, which has been tamed by a master gardener to create a botanical wonder and a home for exotic birds and native wildlife.
FOURTH: ITS GRACIOUSNESS AND AMENITIES. Each of the three kitchens has top-of-the-line appliances. All the bedrooms have king sized beds with excellent mattresses. The furniture throughout is tastefully chosen. The two televisions are large-screen, high definition with programming beamed in from Canada (and cities just across the border -- Detroit in the east, Spokane and Seattle in the west). Wi-fi connection throughout. Pool toys. Firepit to SAFELY enjoy a campfire. Hammock. Three grills. Two cribs. Two high chairs. Children’s furniture. Full-time staff. Knowledgable, helpful, local, bi-lingual house managers. Chefs, massage therapists, baby sitters available.
FINALLY, THE DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER OF EACH OF THE THREE HOUSES:
HOUSE ONE: 3 BR (king) 4 BA - Sleeps 6
On the top of the hill, at street level is the main floor of the Big House, where you will find the spacious living room, dining room, kitchen (laundry and pantry), family room and guest bath. All of these rooms are essentially interconnected in one great open space. They have fabulous views of the jungle, beach and ocean. The kitchen and family room are air-conditioned.
Going UP the magnificent spiral staircase, you come to the Upper Terrace and the Master Suite with its luxurious marble bath and private sunning deck. Several of our guests have remarked that the master bath reminded them of a high-end spa.
Going DOWN the spiral staircase from the main floor you come to the bedroom floor with two large bedroom suites. One has a fabulous jungle and garden view and boasts a sitting area and dual showers; the other has a large terrace overlooking the ocean.
HOUSE TWO: 1 BR (king) 1BR (bunk), 1 BA - Sleeps 4
If you go DOWN one more flight of stairs you come to the pool deck. It is also from this level that you enter EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle), which is a completely contained home with about 900 square feet nestled under the “mother house.” The NIDO has its own kitchen, a sitting area, and is four steps from the large pool.
HOUSE THREE: 2 BR (both king suites) and 2 BA - Sleeps 4
If you go DOWN one more flight of stairs you come to the charming CASITA CELESTIAL (The Heavenly Little House) with its two bedroom suites, one celebrating the sun and the other celebrating the moon, a complete kitchen, a sitting area with its own television and DVD player. Also the CASITA has a PALAPA with a dipping pool that stays cool year around, except in the winter, when it can be heated.

My fiancé and I rented the entire Villa de Vistas for family members to stay at during our wedding weekend. Since we had only seen pictures of the property we were sure that it wouldn't be as spectacular. However the property exceeded our expectations and was everything plus more that was described by the owners. It offered a very spacious area for our entire group to gather. I recommend the property to anyone looking for a magnificent property with a spectacular view. San Pancho is a location we will continue to visit for years to come. Melissa and Bill Roberts were amazing to work with.

Bill and Melissa,
We all wanted to thank you for opening your house to us. The house is unlike any other we have rented before and will unlikely ever have the opportunity to stay in again (until we come back). For the first time ever, we were on a vacation in a foreign country that felt like home. None of us wanted to return to the states, which is rare after being away from home for a week.
Let me start with this, the house staff were both friendly and accommodating. They did an excellent job of not making us feel intruded on, and at the same time, were efficient and professional (a quality not always found abroad).
The house itself is unbelievable. The attention to detail is superb. Kudos to Melissa for all of her hard work and organizational skills during the build. The photo albums and book were an excellent touch and helped make us all feel that much more at home. We have already given your info to several other members of our family and friends. A return trip for all of us is already being tossed about.
Bill (the House Manager) hooked us up with a local fisherman (Pando) and we had a fishing trip that was awesome! 6 hours, and we fished until we were almost tired of fishing. I think we caught about 250 lbs of various fish including a 22lb Dorado. Needless to say, we grilled that back at the villa and reveled in the freshness of the days catch.
I would highly recommend your property to any and all!

I love this place. Gorgeous views. Beautiful gardens. Incredibly relaxing spaces. It is the perfect place for our family to get away from it all and spend time with one another. Its clear that a lot of thought went into design. Every detail has purpose. My family loved the pool. A perfect place for little ones to play.

This home is extraordinary and the overall experience is the perfect mix between beauty, relaxation, fun & culture! Every detail is exquisite and authentic. It truly is a perfect getaway for large or small group of friends and family. Very family friendly with a pool for all ages and a short walk to the beach! The views are amazing from every corner you turn in the home. San Pancho is a beautiful and very friendly Mexican village with so much to offer .. delicious restaurants, polo matches, beaches after beaches, community and horseback riding. Surfing and snorkeling also close by in Salulita (10 miles away). Check it out, I promise .. you will love it! Happy vacationing.

Staying at this complex was an extraordinary experience, each residence was extremely well furnished and immaculate. The surroundings were spectacular, and one had a sense of calm and quiet while at the villa.
