About the property

3 Ocean View Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths

Villa Roca sits high above the northern end of the beach in San Pancho with expansive views of the Pacific, President's Point & Sayulita beyond. We are part of an exclusive five villa gated community known as Vista Del Mar. Our 5000 sq ft villa is constructed with the best that Mexico has to offer: travertine marble floors & stairs, onyx vanities, granite counter tops & cantera columns. The majority of the structure is hand laid rock. Upon entering Villa Roca you immediately see the infinity pool cascading into the Pacific Ocean. Deep wide steps, designed to sit on, lead into the pool where one may move about comfortably whether sipping cocktails, swimming or just gazing at the horizon.

The fully equipped 14 foot kitchen island houses modern stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner cook top, convection oven, microwave, convection toaster oven, coffee maker & grinder, juicer, blender, waffle iron, brisker, mandolin, & assorted tools & gadgets for meal preparation. The bar offers two wine coolers for easy access to chilled beverage. The dining room, with teak table comfortably accommodating up to 10 diners, opens to the terrace extending to the Pacific. The kitchen/dining area offers air conditioning from June through September, the hotter summer months.

On the same level the villa boasts a wood beamed terracotta roofed pavilion with lounging chairs & table to enjoy meals.

The villa features a whole house water purification system and dedicated high speed internet (which is fast enough to stream Netflix on the living area smart TV)..

Soft down filled furniture is scattered throughout the villa. Each private balconied bedroom suite has whisper ceiling fans, air conditioning, side tables with reading lights and a high framed hand made king size pillow top bed. European spa fixture baths include onyx lit vanities, bidets and huge open showers. Cotton linens, spa towels, pool & beach towels are provided for guests. You will find privacy, but yet be just a short walk to the beach or the pueblo. The villa is accessed through an electronic main gate for we which we provide a remote control.

The most common reaction has been 'AMAZING' from all who have visited Villa Roca. Imagine being at eye level with the pelicans as they fly by. Enjoy front row seats watching whales, dolphins and manta rays! Location, location, location! Every room is waterfront with the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see!

It is important to mention that there are more than a handful of excellent restaurants in San Pancho & plenty of true Mexican Taco & Burrito stands. Local stores provide many necessities; toiletries, groceries, liquor and gifts. San Pancho Surf Shop carries supplies, accessories & rental gear. Inquire for private or group surf lessons, tours or fishing trips.

The villa accommodates a maximum of eight people.

We accept Personal Check, Paypal & the VRBO/Homeaway Payment system

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Symon,

Sorry it took us this long to write you a thank-you note...we jumped right back into the NYC craziness the moment we returned from Mexico!

We just wanted to express our sincerest thanks to you for our stay at Villa Roca. We honestly cannot say enough good about our trip. It was unbelievably beautiful and serene. The people in San Pancho were so incredibly generous and hospitable. And Marcus was there for us at a moment's notice!! He was so friendly and helpful, and made sure we wanted for nothing. In short, we'd be foolish not to return soon.

Thank you so much for everything. Villa Roca and the surrounding area are truly a paradise, and without a doubt our new favorite retreat. We can't wait to go back.

Hope to keep in touch.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Roca for 10 days (this included a 3 day extension) and we still didn't want to leave. The house is wonderful, each room has a beautiful view, each of the bedrooms is private and lovely. The house is well stocked and the kitchen is wonderful, if you like to cook you'll find all that you need. If you don't Elaina, and her helper Andrea, is a fabulous cook. They are very lovely people. The house staff is warm, friendly and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable yet private. The town of San Pancho has many wonderful restaurants within walking distance, and small shops for your daily needs. Sayulita is just a short jaunt away for shopping, surfing, paddle boarding, and a night on the town. If you don't want to drive the local car service is very responsive and reliable. Outings are available, we fished, hiked, surfed, paddle boarded, rode horses on the beach and in the jungle. Of course floating in the beautiful pool and watching the fabulous sunsets at the house was a favorite activity. Our vacation couldn't have been better, we plan on making it an annual getaway. Thank you Symon for sharing your exquisite home.

Beautiful views, Beautiful house, we can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

The view is unbelievable. 180 degree views of the beach and ocean. Nobody has a nicer view, period. The house is excellent. Clean. 3 generous size bedrooms with 3 attached bathrooms plus a 4th common bathroom. All the bedrooms have the same great view, yet are private from each other. Allison takes excellent care of you and Elena's cooking is a first class treat. The walk to town on the road (20 minutes) is longer than the walk on the beach. Lots of good places to eat in town. You can walk into Diva tours at almost any hour of the day and get a Suburban or van to take you anywhere. My advise is to rent this house while it is available and stay for as long as you are able. The house is well worth what you pay to stay there.

The only negative is the slope of the driveway that was mentioned in other reviews. The driveway is cobblestone, kind of a rough surface so you have to be careful. We did it in flip flops but we walk a lot and are in good shape. If you can do 8 flights of steps, you can do this driveway. Not for wheel chairs or elderly unsteady on their feet.

Wifi is upgraded now and works excellent in all areas of the house. Allison is best reached by email.

We are looking forward to coming back. Absolutely no complaints.

Villa Roca = Perfection

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for pure relaxation you can't go wrong with Villa Roca. From it's spectacular views from the patio or infinity pool, to the 3 very private master suites, it's a getaway that can't be beat. The house is clean and well stocked with all of the amenities you'll need to make your stay comfortable. The owner Symon has created a little piece of heaven on earth.

House manager Allison was very responsive and informative, arranging transportation, an in-house cook, and made sure that we had everything we needed.

At meal time, Ellena and her daughter Andrea showed up and within minutes we were sipping Margarita's and enjoying home made gaucamole and chips while sitting on the patio enjoying the sunset followed by an amazing home cooked meal. Don't miss Ellena's chili relleno or fresh mahi mahi dish.

This can be done at a very affordable price. If you want cheap and cheery, head into town to a taco bar or any number of affordable restaurants.

The only restaurant we went to was Marplata that was located at the north end of town very close to Villa Roca. 10min. walk. Good food and great music.

Villa Roca's location is at the north end of town and sits high above the pacific with unobstructed views of the ocean and beach. You won't find a more peaceful setting. We didn't have a car but the walk into town was an easy 25 min. stroll through the streets of San Pancho or along the beach.

We also did a few hikes turning north further up the main road and into the jungle finding another very private beach with no one else on it. The entrance was on the left on a small trail just past the Lydia bungalows.

The one hitch we had was that our transportation back to the airport forgot that he was suppose to pick us up. We had to track him down through several phone calls and cut it very close ( 10mins. ) to making the only flight out that Virgin America had on our departure day. If we missed that flight it was either wait until their next flight out on Sat., ( this was Weds. ) or try to book a flight on another airline which would have been out of pocket. Currently Virgin only flies in and out of PVR on Weds. and Sat. 1 flight. You miss it...you're screwed.

Lesson learned...always confirm your ride back to PVR the day before. Then confirm again the morning of.

If you are looking for a place that's private, clean, has a great staff and unbelievable views...Villa Roca is it!

Looking forward to gong back.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for 8 nights and it was not long enough, what an enjoyable experience. It was a very easy process from booking with Homeaway and then having Symon the owner reach out to confirm the dates. We were then contacted by Allison who was made the rest of the trip smooth sailing. She did a wonderful job and set us up with a chef four of the nights we were there, and also coordinated other activities. She really made the trip flawless, and knows the area very well, and did a great job of understanding our needs. Would recommend this home to anyone visiting the area.

GREAT PLACE - All Previous Reviews Are Spot-On!

  • 5 of 5

All of the previous 5 star reviews summarize this property very well! We have stayed at other properties in the San Pancho area and while very nice they were not as nice as Villa Roca for several reasons:

LOCATION - my husband and I walked to town at least once a day, either along the beach or the road. Villa Roca is close enough that you only have to walk along the dirt road for a very short stretch before you hit the cobblestone road. From there you can head to the beach or stay on the road. The driveway is steep but manageable (I mostly wore cheap flipflops from Old Navy and handled it fine).

SIMPLE DECOR - Villa Roca is very simply but tastefully decorated and I say that because other places I've stayed had so many geegaws that I was afraid I'd knock over an expensive vase or statue. Plus, the minimal decor only enhanced the natural beauty of the surroundings rather than detract from it.

CEILING FANS & AC - every room had both ceiling fans and AC and the outdoor patios had ceiling fans.

NETFLIX & WiFi - the TV had NetFlix which we have at home so it was easy to use and we really enjoyed.

The wifi worked well enough for our purposes. Also the Smart TV had the Spotify Music station.

SECURITY - there is an entrance gate to this property as well as another that is always closed. Also, the master bedroom has a safe in the closet. You feel like you can leave your valuables at the house and that they are secure, whether in the safe or not.

Amazing Location and Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

The views from this villa are truly amazing. You almost feel like you are on a boat as there is a 180+ degree unobstructed ocean view from almost every room. The 3 master suites are all spacious with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning. It worked really well for us with our two grown children and grandchild as the rooms are quite separate and private. The kitchen is very well stocked and the sliding doors in al the rooms, create a fantastic indoor outdoor experience.

The infinity pool is lovely and great for relaxing around especially at sunset when the sky was spectacular.
