Romantic Guesthouse near Beach In San Pancho - Privacy, Lush Gardens and Pool

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq ft
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

This one bedroom 'hacienda style' casita/guesthouse is perfect for an 'adult' retreat or romantic getaway. Queen-size (comfortable) bed sleeps one or two, and the 30' lap pool and outdoor 'hot and cold' shower are just steps from the bedroom. The casita sits at the rear of the property, away from the street, and has it's own private and self-locking entry door. A cobblestone path leads through a stunning and lush inner courtyard with seating, a meditation garden, and large raised planted flower bed. Following on will take you to a bougainville covered brick wall and the main entry to the guesthouse.

The guesthouse has a fully equipped kitchen for cooking or 'eating in', grassy manicured yard, a hammock and tile patio for sun and lounging, and WiFi for working (hope not) and web surfing. It's also only a few blocks to the beach and conveniently central in town for sightseeing, shopping, and fabulous eating. So many great restaurants, so little time!!

The property also happens to be flat and therefore user friendly for canes, walkers, or wheelchairs if need be.

**Please, at the time of making the reservation request/payment select the $59 insurance instead of the $1500, thanks!

About Alan Serebrin

I live in Seattle in the late Spring and Summer during San Pancho's rainy season. and when I return to San Pancho from the brisk NW, I stay and care-take the casita and grounds from a 'street-side' house far in front of the guesthouse.

Alan Serebrin purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Alan Serebrin chose San Francisco

This is a unique property in San Pancho. Even though the casita is near the beach and nestled right in the heart of the pueblo, it is at the same time a very private and special oasis.

What makes this bungalow unique

Private, yet close to everything.

great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance` and I spent 5 days here in January. This house matched the description and is a jewel in the heart of San Francisco. The garden and yard are a relaxing escape yet in the mix of everything. Kitchen is adequate for cooking meals, fresh clean drinking water is provided, and fresh towels replaced as needed.

The outdoor shower was perfect and had the privacy you'd expect. The pool in early January was a little cool to enjoy, even with 80 degree days, as it missed the direct sunlight. In a week or two I imagine it will be full of sun again and heated up naturally.

Alan was a great host. Quick to offer tips if you wanted them, and even quicker to give you space if you didn't. I highly recommend this home and San Francisco for couples/singles who want to get away.

Beautiful gem hidden in a garden just off the main street

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is wonderfully secluded at the back of a fenced off private garden. Everything was done in great taste and encourages visitors to blur the line between inside and outdoors. Large folding doors open nearly every wall of the house out to the garden. Outside features a hammock, dip pool, reading area, lawn for tanning or stargazing, an outdoor shower, as well as beautiful flowers and well-manicured grass. The owner, Alan, is a generous and considerate host, going out of his way to help save a spot for our rental car on more than one occasion. The property is a short 15 minute walk to the beach through the town with several restaurants and shops along the way. My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again one day.

A secluded oasis in the center of San Pancho, Nayarit

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need for a relaxing vacation in the beach town of San Pancho. You have your own house, with a well-equipped kitchen, a refreshing lap pool to cool off after a hard day at the beach, a comfortable bedroom with open air on two sides if you wish, and a wonderful outdoor shower. All, of course, in a private courtyard that allows you to wear as little clothing as you like. From here, it's just a short walk down the main drag to the beach, passing many restaurants and sidewalk vendors offering delicious choices for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's not quiet, though. You'll hear roosters crowing or donkeys braying, as well as the sounds of commerce and music playing in the streets, filtering in over the walls of your oasis. But the best part is San Pancho. People from all over the world mix congenially with the natives here, and the vibe is definitely laid back. Be sure to be at the beach at sunset sipping a margarita as you watch the sun dip into the Pacific. Thanks, Alan, for creating a gem of an experience!
