In a small mexican village called San Pancho, the jewel of the Nayarit Riviera, just 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta , a beautiful home awaits you to bring the magic into your life.

Casa de Suenos Magicos (House of Magical Dreams) is a private luxurious two or three bedroom home with majestic ocean views from every room. Just 50 steps from the beautiful one mile white sand beach where you can swim, sunbathe or walk in peace on the never crowded beach.

The third bedroom is located just below the pool level in a separate casita with remote control air conditioning, fans, full bathroom and private entrance.

Exceptional San Pancho Villa

  • 5 of 5

San Pancho is one of my favorite towns in Mexico and I am so happy we discovered Don's house. Its a beautiful property with an incredible pool. Don lives on the property and is extremely helpful whenever you need him, but also gives space and privacy. The set up was perfect for myself, my 1 year old daughter and my parents. We used the pool all day and in the evening. The fact that it is heated is a big plus. You are a quick walk down the hill to the beach and a quick drive into town. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing and very safe. We had a look around at a lot of other villas and rentals close by and really feel like we lucked out with this place. I would absolutely book again. If you are travelling with small children I'd recommend a car as it can be a long walk carrying a child going into town. For adults it is no problem - 10 minute walk along the beach. All in all a great place, beautifully furnished and as great as it looks in the pictures.

Beautiful house and outstanding pool! The pool was the best! Staff was great and we appreciated clear instructions Don gave us on tipping. Rooms were comfortable, but Casita was noisy for my friends staying down there. We enjoyed cooking in the full kitchen and enjoyed the mostly reliable WiFi. It is Mexico and electrical issues happen outside of owner control. I loved walking to town, but not all in our group appreciated that. Mar Plata is outstanding! I would encourage guests to use bug aversion options from the start....alll day, not just evening. Overall a lovely trip. Thank you!

Fantastic Home In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The home is very well appointed, comfortable, spacious and extremely well maintained, with great ocean views, this casa exceeded our expectations. The bedrooms are a great size and the bathrooms are roomy. The bedrooms are separate from the main living area which is nice so people can rest while others may be awake. The pool is fantastic, it is large, very well cared for and heated.

The staff are amazingly friendly, Maty was wonderful and made us a great dinner our first night which we would highly recommend. She took beautiful care of the house.

We loved our stay, we'll be back soon! Thanks Don.

My wife and 2 grown daughters were looking forward to a week of total relaxation, and that is exactly what we experienced at the Casa de Suenos Magicos. The house is fabulous - spacious, clean, comfortable, and gorgeous. The pool is large and inviting, sparkling clean, and the perfect refreshing temperature. The location is just a minutes walk to a beautiful, peaceful beach and about a 15 minute walk into town. San Pancho aka San Francisco is a quaint, dusty, typical little Mexican town. There are several excellent, inexpensive restaurants to choose from, our favorite was Maria's, and all of the servers and shopkeepers are friendly and warm. One night we had an incredible, home-cooked, authentic Mexican feast at the Casa prepared by Maty, the housekeeper. She's a gem! All in all it was the perfect vacation. Thank you Don and Shirley. You are wonderful hosts and we look forward to our next visit.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples that have travelled to several towns in the area. Don & Shirley's villa is a wonderful place to unwind and recharge with very comfortable bedrooms, lounging areas around a fantastic pool. Everything is very well maintained and beautiful. We found lots to do in town thanks to Don's great recommendations. The walk to town along the beach is very enjoyable and scenic. We had a wonderful vacation, Thank you so much for everythng.

Great time in a great house

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six 50-somethings just (sadly) concluded two wonderful weeks at Don & Shirley's Casa. From the very start, the experience was delightful - setting aside the chaos of the PVR airport! Easy, responsive booking & payment, all questions answered quickly, the beautiful casa exactly as advertised.What the photos didn't capture was the extraordinary level of detail in the house - everything just struck you as tasteful and/or high quality. Furniture, artwork, linens, kitchen appliances, dishware, fixtures, sound system, pool chairs and loungers, the list goes on. In total, this slew of finishing touches made the house a home. Also missing from the photos are the spaciousness of the place and the sense of warmth and friendliness from the owners and their staff. Luis and Chui maintaining the pool and grounds immaculately and Maty, the housekeeper and chef, keeping the house spotless and inviting. It was also a real treat to have her cook a tasty meal for our gang (highly recommend this at least once). The neighbourhood lost Internet for 5 days but, speaking for my retired self only, it wasn't really missed - and obviously not Don's fault. And speaking of treats, viewing the Pacific sunsets from the roof top while clutching a Pacifico beer will be long remembered. As a group and individually, we explored the charming town we had returned to after 4 years away. Busier than I remembered but still extremely enjoyable, with great dining and live music everywhere. Forget Las Vegas and add San Pancho and Casa de Suenos Magicos to your bucket list!
