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 very comfortable sitting area, a high-definition, large-screen television with American and Canadian programming, a DVD player, wi-fi, a cozy kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, and an eclectic library with books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics and tourist attractions, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts. 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.

Its GRACIOUS CENTRAL ROOM is filled with stars – and a very comfortable sitting area, a high-definition, large-screen television with American and Canadian programming, a DVD player, wi-fi, a cozy kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, and an eclectic library with books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics and tourist attractions, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts. 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, and classic equipal furniture for dining or relaxing. To the south you see hints of the Pacific; to the east and west, the lush jungle with its fascinating birds and butterflies. There are TWO BEDROOMS, each with its own bath and distinctive character, filled with works of Mexican artists from all around the country. 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 are air-conditioned. 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 – 900 sq. ft – two bedrooms, one bath) is nestled into the hillside. The village of San Pancho is a magical Mexican pueblo with a pristine beach, fabulous restaurants, excellent shops, a polo field, a progressive community development, approximately 2000 Mexican nationals and 250 Gringos, a polo field, e. It has never known any drug related violence. Our villa is particularly secure.More

I’d rate this a 4.5 stars if I could. The Casa Celestial is a beautiful little cabin set into a jungle hillside. Very private. Very quiet. Nicely configured for two couples, each having their own bath. The beds were very comfortable. Well appointed kitchen. Lots...More

We were delighted to have your foursome on our property last week in our Casita Celestial. So happy you enjoyed the pools for cooling off, the birds in the jungle, and the restaurants in our little town. We hope to see you again.

About the neighbourhood
The Villa is located at the north end of the beach on a quiet hillside in a tropical jungle, a bird lover's paradise. It is just a few minute walk to the ocean. There are several other houses in the 'neighborhood', but all are located behind our property and basically out of view. San Pancho is often called the Jewel of the Rivera Nayarit. It is quiet, at least from where we are located. (The pounding of the surf is louder than noise from the pueblo.) It has three distinctive institutions: 1. A turtle sanctuary has saved thousands of turtles from poachers.,,and releases hatchlings in the winter. 2. EntreAmigos offers educational program to children. 3. La Patrona Polo Club has frequent polo matches and equestrian events.
Getting around
Slightly more than half of the people who rent do rent a car. We recommend they rent from Gecko car rental in Bucerias. If you have a car it is very easy to get around. San Pancho is a small town and you will be sufficiently familiar with everything in a day. Slightly less than half of the people do not rent a car. They walk to the beach (just five minutes) and they walk to town (it's about twenty five minutes). If they get tired, they hire a taxi. If they prefer, they can rent a golf cart. Again, because our pueblo is small, you will know your way around in just a few days. If you wish to go out of town and don't have a car, you can hire a driver for the day or use a taxi. We'll send you LOTS OF INFORMATION for 'getting around!
