Casa Papelillo

About this property

Casa Papelillo is a custom designed and built private refuge in the nature reserve of Rancho Clavellinas. It sprawls over a large ⅓-acre lot just steps up from its own private beach at the north end of the jungle road 15 minutes from downtown San Pancho.

This luxury home feels like living in the treetops, an open design gazing upon the tropical outdoors from the serene comfort of the indoors defined with gorgeous ornate wood accents and handcrafted stonework.

The house is perfectly set up for hosting multiple families and/or groups with five independent bedrooms, each with its own entrance, all connected by beautifully maintained stone pathways that weave through the gardens. The house blends perfectly with the natural surroundings, built organically around the existing trees. (Not a single tree was removed during construction!)

The upper (entrance) level sits in the jungle canopy with three bedrooms surrounding a landscaped stone courtyard looking through treetops from large custom hardwood windows and doors. Two of these three bedrooms are dual master suites with expansive ocean and garden views and the third bedroom sits just behind them tucked beautifully in the trees.

On the level below is a spacious open concept kitchen, living and dining room blending the indoors and outdoors with the wood doors opening up entire walls to roomy treetop balconies, ample natural light, ceiling fans and ocean breezes.

On the same level, the fourth bedroom serves as a media room with a Murphy bed and another full bath. To the west, the outdoor patio wraps around the entire house to maximize the ocean views.

Meandering stone pathways take you to the bottom level where the fifth and final bedroom is located. This standalone “casita” currently serves as the caretaker’s suite and has a kitchenette and full bath.

Next door to the casita is Casa Papelillos’ gym (with half bath) looking out through the trees to the ocean.

Just a few steps down a gently sloped path is the 50-foot, crescent shaped, salt water infinity pool. The pool is large enough for swimming laps or simply hosting family or friends as you watch the sunset over the Pacific through the treetops.

Finally, there’s a foot trail through the jungle that takes you to your own private beach, Playa Clavellinas, arguably the most beautiful beach in Nayarit, often referred to as the “Corona commercial beach.” This luxury home is not to be missed.

Casa Papelillo es un refugio privado diseñado y construido a medida en la reserva natural de Rancho Clavellinas. Se extiende sobre un gran lote de ⅓ acre a solo unos pasos de su propia playa privada en el extremo norte de la carretera de la jungla, a 15 minutos del centro de San Pancho.

Esta casa de lujo se siente como vivir en las copas de los árboles, un diseño abierto que contempla el exterior tropical desde la serena comodidad del interior definido con hermosos detalles en madera ornamentada y mampostería artesanal.

La casa está perfectamente preparada para albergar a múltiples familias y/o grupos con cinco habitaciones independientes, cada una con su propia entrada, todas conectadas por senderos de piedra bellamente mantenidos que atraviesan los jardines. La casa combina perfectamente con el entorno natural, construida orgánicamente alrededor de los árboles existentes. (¡No se quitó ni un solo árbol durante la construcción!)

El nivel superior (entrada) se encuentra en el dosel de la jungla con tres dormitorios que rodean un patio de piedra ajardinado que mira a través de las copas de los árboles desde grandes ventanas y puertas de madera hechas a medida. Dos de estos tres dormitorios son suites principales dobles con amplias vistas al océano y al jardín, y el tercer dormitorio se encuentra justo detrás de ellos, escondido maravillosamente entre los árboles.

En el nivel inferior hay una espaciosa cocina, sala y comedor de concepto abierto que combina el interior y el exterior con puertas de madera que abren paredes enteras a amplios balcones en las copas de los árboles, abundante luz natural, ventiladores de techo y brisa del mar.

En el mismo nivel, el cuarto dormitorio sirve como sala multimedia con una cama plegable y otro baño completo. Hacia el oeste, el patio al aire libre rodea toda la casa para maximizar las vistas al mar.

Los senderos de piedra serpenteantes lo llevan al nivel inferior donde se encuentra el quinto y último dormitorio. Esta “casita” independiente actualmente sirve como suite del cuidador y tiene una pequeña cocina y un baño completo.

Benny Love

Broker and Co-Founder


Ben started Wanderlust after becoming a veteran of the Latin American property development scene. With degrees in Anthropology and History, he has been attracted to the incredible cultural diversity and history of Mexico and Central America from a young age. A hunger to explore brought Ben to Nicaragua where he spent five years building custom vacation homes. Because these projects were mostly on raw land with limited resources, he was forced to learn all facets of the development process: he was expected to be the designer, architect, engineer, and builder. Most of the furniture, cabinetry, and windows were built by hand, as was general infrastructure such as roads, wells, and electrical and septic systems. These five years in Nicaragua have made Ben incredibly resourceful, and developed in him an “anything is possible” attitude.

While in Nicaragua, he joined his wife Kassidy’s nonprofit, The Sweet Water Fund, a grassroots foundation dedicated to inspiring Nicaraguan villages and empowering the local women through job opportunities, healthy lifestyles, and the arts. They spearheaded many projects such as nutrition and fitness programs, a suspension bridge over the local river so kids could more easily get to school, and a school kitchen built completely out of recycled materials.

After returning to the United States from Nicaragua, Ben became a general contractor in Sonoma, California. He completed multiple prestigious projects in the Sonoma and Napa valleys, including the remodeling of old-world wineries and the building of several spectacular second homes.

Three years later, Ben and Kassidy realized that the lifestyle and pace of Latin America was calling them back, so, in 2016, they and their two little boys, two dogs, and two cats made the leap down to gorgeous San Pancho to start all over again.

Ben was fortunate to work under Fred Feibel of F.L. Feibel y Asociados in San Pancho, where he developed a deep understanding of the practices and customs of Mexican real estate. After Fred’s untimely passing at the end of 2017, Ben took on the role of broker and lead agent and ran the office with his mentor’s high level of integrity and customer service. In the following year, Ben boosted the company’s sales by 350%, increasing its referral base and closing ratio.

Now a sought-after agent in the Riviera Nayarit, Ben decided to start his own company, Wanderlust Real Estate + Development. He brings his tenacity, organization, energy, optimism and creativity to the Wanderlust team and prides himself on keeping everyone on track and their clients informed, calm, and happy.
