Our villa, Casa de la Paloma, is on Santiago Bay and Playa Miramar, a three mile long beach, perfect for long walks and jogging. This private oceanfront villa for rent features 4 equal size King bedrooms, each with private bath, it's own individual air conditioner and CD or IPOD player for your listening enjoyment. Additionally, we have a full kitchen, formal dining room and an air conditioned TV and Recreation room. The TV and Recreation room has a game table, six chairs, large sofa and TV with Satellite Connection, VCR, DVD, and a DVD library of over 100 movies. You can hear and see the ocean surf from each room. Casa de la Paloma is great for couples or families. NEW SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONERS IN TV ROOM AND ALL FOUR BEDROOMS 2009! VERY QUIET WHEN RUNNING!
We were guests of Casa de la Paloma during early December 2008. We had four generations of us staying for a family holiday. Everything that was described to us and assured to us was met. Mr. Watkins was very quick to answer our questions with an honest opinion. Those opinions were accurate. We included the house keeper for a couple of meals, visited with the pool people, and talked with the grounds keeper. They were all very friendly and went beyound expectations for a reasonable helpfullness. The beach is the best on the Pacific side of Mexico. Our two year old grandchild enjoyed playing in the surf and sand. He played with the Mexican children on the beach while we shared common life experiences with the parents. It was friendly and great. Use the people for tours that Jess recommends. There is no snorkeling on the beach just out side the property but a ten minute walk north leads you to great opportunities. If you are a diver all of the boat or shore dives originate in that ten minute walk. I am a master scuba diver and the wreck is not to be missed. The snorkel crowd (my wife) only experience the top portion of the wreck but 100 feet down there is a world to be explored. Please be certified for wreck penetration and you will be surprised. If you want to go fishing do not use the recommended parties. They try hard but they are not the best. I fish all over (thats a good enough description), Go to downtown Manzanillo by the big fish. Ask for Captian Jose on the Banna boat. It is a ponga that is a little rough, has shade, and has and outstanding fisherman. In previous trips we have caught up to 100 fish a day with the best being 23 dorado. This is not normal but Jose always gets into the fish. I took the recommended fisherman with my father-in-law and my son-in-law and we caught nada. No take downs no nothing. In six trips with Jose this never happened. We rented a car (expensive insurance) and were able to travel around the county side. The stop at El Salto was the best. There are many places to explore by car if you desire. The major stores are 15 minutes away if you choose. The local stores have most everything if you desire. I am called the Italian Housewife (hey, I'm a guy) an thus I love going to the markets, both superstores and local. Do the local markets (I forgot the name) for true Mexican culture. The flea market operates on the week-end and it is very good. There are good values in the artasian market.
Casa de la Paloma is amazing. If you're looking for a spot to get away from everything, this is your place! There may be a lot to do (tours or adventures) but we can't comment on that. We just relaxed and watched/listened to the waves. And it was perfect.
Our littles loved the pool. And the owners couldn't be more kind, helpful and informative.
The one thing we did do other than just drink tequila and play in the pool and ocean with the kids (not in that order) is we did go see the sea turtle rescue. Which was tons of fun for us and the kids.
Imagine being in the Pacific Ocean yet waking-up to the sun rising from the sea in the most spectacular way!
Imagine trying to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner when you can’t take your sight away from palm trees and a pristine ocean right at your doorstep!!
Imagine living in a dream-world yet feeling you've come back home!!!
If you can imagine all this you've arrived at Casa de la Paloma, where the Mexican warmth and incomparable service of the house’s staff will make you feel that this is the place where you belong.
To say that our vacation was awesome pales in comparison to what our memories and senses will recall until we return to this paradise, and for those who will read these thoughts with skepticism just wait till you’re there!!
The Fe family wishes to thank the owners and staff of Casa de la Paloma for an unforgettable vacation, and we are looking forward to ongoing “AWESOME” in the year to come!!

This house is stunning and perfectly situated on the beach of club Santiago. It offers privacy if staying with Multi- families, and all rooms are large with great views. The kitchen is very well equipped . A lovely stunning property.
We loved our stay here. We loved that we were right on the beach but also had the pool that the kids did not get out of unless the bracelet or ice cream vendors were going by. The house was stocked with everything that you could need and more. Very convenient to just walk down to the Oasis for a meal and a drink. Jesse and Eduardo were great at communicating and they even arranged airport pick up for us. We seriously never wanted to leave!! The house was clean and the housekeeper was lovely and made our lives so much easier for 2 weeks. If we ever come back to Manzanillo we will definitely stay here again!!
We looked on VRBO for a rental property in manzanillo and to our great surprise we found Casa de la Paloma in the beautiful Club Santiago area in Mexico.
This house was beautiful, clean and very well stocked.
We have 3 kids and each child had their own room.
The doors to the family room and dining room open wide so there is so much space for indoor and outdoor living.
Living on the beach was lovely. We enjoyed the early morning fishermen coming in with their catch, the local sellers (silver,coconut, mango, baked good, ice cream, clothing,etc) & we had Sam the local cowboy come right to the house for several horseback rides.
Yolanda (the maid) came daily.
The only thing I'd be concerned with is families with young kids. All the rooms open to the outside so they need to be individually locked.
We can't wait to come back to Casa de la Paloma.
