Villa Papelillos is a luxurious, ecological paradise just a ten minute walk from the beach and a ten minute drive from the center of San Pancho. The Villa has two separate houses. It is located on a stunning property overlooking the Pacific... a perfect destination for those seeking tranquility and natural beauty without compromising comfort... ideal for family reunions, gatherings of friends, and life's celebrations. Both houses are artistically designed and beautifully furnished with vibrant Mexican fabrics, tiles, and museum quality arts and crafts.
Although there are many distinctive features at Villa Papelillos, these seem to be the most remarkable:
FIRST: ITS SHEER SIZE (over 8200 sq. ft.) and the thoughtful way in which both houses and even the individual rooms are related to one another. This allows gracious spaces for groups to gather and many intimate locations for reading, reflecting, relaxing and quiet conversation.
SECOND: ITS POOL is unusually large for a vacation home in San Pancho. Not only that, but the pool was designed with families in mind. There is a large step where infants can splash in very shallow water.
THIRD: ITS LOCATION. It's in the jungle, which has been tamed by a master gardener to create a botanical wonder and a home for exotic birds and native wildlife.
FOURTH: ITS GRACIOUSNESS AND AMENITIES. Each of the two kitchens has top-of-the-line appliances. All the bedrooms have king sized beds with excellent mattresses. The furniture throughout is tastefully chosen. The television is a 40" LED screen, high definition with satellite programming. Portable Wi-fi connection. Grill. Full time staff upon request. Knowledgable, helpful, local, bi-lingual house managers. Chefs and baby sitters available upon request.

If you're a birder, don't miss out on this amazing gem of a property. Villa Papelillos is surrounded by the namesake tree, also known as the paper tree and its berries are crucial for migratory birds along flyways in the U.S. and Canada. It's like living in a treehouse with all the attendant bird life you can imagine. Just on the property we regularly saw caciques, chachalacas, green parrotlets, orioles, woodpeckers, masked tityras and one day a ferruginous pygmy owl. Walk a near by path through the jungle to see even more species. The other wonderful aspect of this property is the carefully maintained infinity pool. After a hot humid day of hiking, the pool was a blessing. The staff who maintain the home are wonderful. Rene, Yadira and Diega were so attentive and they made our stay feel like home. We'd come back in a heartbeat. ”
We had an amazing one week stay at this wonderful property that included the use of both villas for our family of 5 (children aged 7,11,13). The houses are surrounded by nature and offer panoramic views of the ocean and jungle. We loved swimming in the private infinity pool as well as hanging out in all the outdoor and indoor living spaces including the roof top patios. We also enjoyed the quiet beach located only a 15-minute walk down a gravel road from the Villas. The location is a bit remote but we felt secure and safe the entire time. Exploring the surrounding areas does require a car rental and we had fun day trips to the beach towns of San Pancho & Sayulita. The daily housekeeping staff was great. And, we hired (for an additional cost) the chef to cook some of our meals so we could enjoy the property to its fullest. The property manager Carlos was extremely responsive - answering every email within a few minutes and was helpful. The only issue we had was with the Wi-Fi service which was not very reliable and we were often without a connection or the service was very slow. We would highly recommend Villa Papelillos and would love to return! ”
