Quinta Elena sits atop a hill with a 270-degree view of the jungle, sierra, and spectacular beach a few blocks away. Yet the property is only a 0.4 mi./0.64 k. walk from the heart of San Francisco, AKA San Pancho. This 3,000-person village prides itself on its eateries, shops, and palpable charm. Neighboring village Sayulita, known for its vibrant surf beach, lies only 4 mi./7k. away.
The Quinta Elena compound consists of a three-bedroom, four-bath main house; a one-bedroom, two-bath guest house; and a salt-water swimming pool serving both houses. All bedrooms are en suite with patios and ocean views. All are surrounded by terraced gardens filled with palms, fruit trees, and tropical orchids and plants unique to the area.
Examples of Mexican artisanship are found throughout the property: Mexican mahogany woodwork; hand-rubbed clay floor tiles; arched brick “boveda” ceilings; intricate sea stone showers and stairs; polished concrete counter tops; and decorative grillwork. Combined with modern top-brand appliances, air-conditioning, and strong WIFI, Quinta Elena makes both owners and vacationers feel at home and comfortable.
