Location:
About a 15 minute walk to the center of town and if you don't want to walk
The town isn't extremely close but is still within a reasonable walking distance
The only draw back from the property was that it was a bit far from town (a 15 to 20 minute walk)
and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in San Pancho (which itself is also a great destination but that's a whole other review)
the house staff (Ana and Alejandro) and San Pancho Rentals (Allison) are always a joy to be around and to work with San Pancho is a beautiful town
