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.

Loved Alan's Place!
Alan's casita is a wonderful retreat from the cares and concerns of daily life and he's a gracious, mindful host who goes out of his way to make sure you have a great and relaxing time! We recommend the casita without reservation and are eagerly looking forward to returning. Well done!
So enjoyed having you at my property. You are the kind of guests that make hosting such a rewarding endeavor. Please come back soon!
An oasis in the middle of San Francisco (San Pancho)
The privacy, the lap pool, the open air feeling, all contributed to the comforting nature of La Casita. Open air bedroom, outdoor shower, colors and chlorophyll amass. This is a beautiful retreat in San Pancho worth visiting.
Relaxing San Pancho
This was our third trip to San Pancho and by far our favorite place to stay. It is a hidden oasis right in the heart of central San Pancho. Set in a beautiful, private garden it is only steps from the shops and restaurants and 3 blocks from the beach. Alan is a wonderful host, close by when needed and ready to attend to any need we may have, yet when you close the gate to your casita you have complete privacy. One of the features we loved the most was the outdoor shower......showering under the stars with plenty of hot water and great water pressure! I arrived with a not quite fully mended broken leg so we really relaxed and took it easy.......a quick cab ride to Sayulita for lunch and shopping, sitting on the beach and three amazing massages at Angelica’s Spa just one block away.
A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN OASIS
The place is absolutely incredible. Others have written that it is like a sanctuary, a private oasis, a piece of paradise, it is all that and more. The owner, Alan, is not only the most charming host anyone can ask for, but he is such a NICE guy! He went overboard with any assistance we needed, while making sure we had our privacy as well! We were in PV for a week prior to our time in San Pancho and frankly this place MADE the trip. We were content hanging out in our private garden with the not too close sound of roosters, and our own iguana pal on our rooftop. The only thing that could have possibly made it better is we could have stayed longer! I recommend this place highly and promise you will not be disappointed! It is so convenient to everything in San Pancho, We LOVED IT an will be back!
You guys were fantastic guests, and I loved having you here. Just like you said, the only thing better would have been that you might've stayed longer :)
Thanks so much for the kind words, and can’t wait to see you back again.
Behind the door
The main photo of that door is an apt metaphor. Go through it and you enter a holy place. It's hard to put into words. First of all, you need to know that aesthetically it is amazing. The rugs, textiles, doors, tile, pool, bed, bathroom, gardens, etc. --- all add to the serene and pure Mexican feel. And then there's your host and avatar Alan, who lives in the nearby casa. A wise and caring avatar. He made an already perfect experience even better. Gracias Alan!
So, inside the door is the sanctuary Alan has created....and outside is charming San Pancho, where sunsets on the beach are a community event. When the sun finally sinks below the surface of the ocean, everyone applauds mother nature. It was something.
Tip: Don't book a return flight because you will not want to leave.

You guys are amazingly kind. Your review, and sweet response to my property are one of the most important things that make my Mexican experience here so deep and rich.
You in turn are the quintessential ‘perfect guests’. Absorbing the relaxed feeling of my Casita and our Pueblo, all while providing me with a strong measure of good feeling towards an interesting new friendship,
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.
Peter and Allie, thanks so much for the kind words. You guys were the perfect guests, and it was a pleasure having you here.
Come back soon!
