Welcome to Casitas Santiago Hills!
People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but no picture can describe the breathtaking views this private beautiful 1 bedroom apartment has to offer, from the beautiful city lights of Manzanillo during the night, to the amazing multicolored hues of the sunset reflecting over the sea.
This spacious apartment is perfectly designed to use all the natural energy the world has to offer so your stay is always full of natural light and is naturally cool.
During the day the sea breeze blows directly into the loft offering a much cooler stay than any other place below the hill at sea level.
During the night the wind blows from inland over the mountains coming directly into the loft.
Specially designed windows allow for the cool wind to recycle constantly inside the house creating a fresh atmosphere, and if you feel you need a little more cooling the multiple ceiling mounted fans, will take care of that for you; as well as the waterfall like fountain located inside the living room.
Forget the traffic, noise and neighbors, enjoy life above it all, Santiago Hills is perfectly secluded and just above the life of this amazing town.
Enjoy the beautiful pool & stunning palapa that offers views of the ocean and city.
Stop thinking about it! only 25 minutes away from the Airport of Manzanillo, 5 minutes from La Punta and 20 minutes from the Port of Manzanillo. **WE OFFER FREE AIRPORT PICK UP**

We have been to every beach in Mexico, and Manzanillo wins because of its pueblo feel, affordability, privacy, and its not a big PARTY TOWN, making it very nice and quiet, exactly what we want when we retire.
Ayelet and Sean purchased this villa in 2008
We actually built the whole complex from scratch, it was an empty piece of land and now its a 4 house complex. Its all brand new construction in 2008 & 2009.
The benefits we see its that its a very small town, with no major international tourism keeping things pretty quiet and relaxed. Being only a couple of hours away from Los Angeles direct flight from LAX to ZLO and also the house is located just 20 min away from the airport, pretty much at the very beginning of the town. The house is located on a hill very secluded from the noise and traffic and everyone else, so its quite private.
Our families have been coming to this town to vacation since the 60's so we decided to make it our second home.
Perfect weather, amazing views, its cooler than most properties at sea level since we are on a hill.
We can just walk down the hill to the beach with our dogs; also to the convenience market just below the hill we could buy basic necessities as well as beer/ wine.
We recommend that you either rent a car from us for only $35/ day + Fuel or one at the airport for $60USD/ day + miles + Fuel.
We do offer FREE AIRPORT PICKUP!
Javier and I are doing fantastic but a little blue, it was just soo relaxing that we didn't want to come back! Manzanillo is truly paradise and I hope to visit again. The loft is everything I expected and more. The pictures do not justify the beauty that you see there and the waves you hear at night! Please say hello to your mom for us. She was awesome! People like that are hard to come by now a days. I am truly grateful that we met her. We hope you and your family are doing well.
Have a great Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!
Fue un fin de semana espectacular. La atención es de primera calidad. La vista es espectacular. Todo esta muy limpio y el ambiente es único. Tuvimos oportunidad de descansar. Fue mas de lo que esperábamos. Las fotos se quedan cortas con la belleza del lugar. Todo esta muy bien cuidado. Definitivamente un lugar muy especial. Volveremos!
As others have mentioned this is THE place to book for those looking to stay in the Manzanillo area. And the loft is THE unit to book at Casitas Santiago Hills, if available. The view from here is spectacular and has no equivalent in the entire area. This tidy complex sits on top of the Santiago Hills and is where you want to be. There are three towns that have now grown together and internationally known as Manzanillo, but Santiago is by far the best [in our opinion]. It has a large bay and walkable beach that runs about 5 miles with umbrellas and restaurants dotting the landscape. In early March we watched some whales frolic in the bay for a few days. And the deck and loft from this Casista overlook the entire bay, as well as a good part of all three towns. You see sunrises and most of the sunsets, depending on the time of year you visit. We were there from the beginning of January until mid April and we never tired of the views.
Hermelinda is indispensable. She is the property manager, the owners Mother, the advisor of all things Manzanillo and the state of Colima, chauffeur, chef, and most of all a super lovely lady who is just amazing! She is a knowledgeable business person who speaks both Spanish and English, and who understands the importance of delivering outstanding service and making each guest feel special and cared for.
From the kitchen door of the loft, the pool is exactly seven steps! And we took full advantage! Get too hot cooking? Seven steps to relief! The loft always stayed a reasonable temperature, helped by the powerful overhead fans and one floor fan that we also used at night. Who wants to vacation within air conditioning? And the breezes coming off the ocean during the day, AND off the mountains at night kept us very comfortable. And the crashing waves!
There are lovely homes on the street that climbs up, and up, to get to this complex. And, let's be honest, it is not a smooth ride (mostly cobblestones), and it is very steep in places. There are also two trails down the hills from the casitas - one takes you toward the beach, the other takes you right into town and a few short blocks further is the Market. This is one of the outstanding sections of Santiago. It is several blocks square and where you [and locals] shop for FRESH fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood all at very very reasonable prices and totally safe and fun.
We drove all over and never saw anything that came close to what you'll have at Casitas Santiago Hills!!!
This place is a hidden treasure. The location, the accommodation, the privacy, the scenery, cleanliness and the best landlord ever.."mom". My husband and I stayed here for 8 days and it was the best 8 days ever. The scenery itself, was spectacular, and having our own private pool was exceptional. The beautiful beach is about 7 minutes walk away. Most important to me was the owner's mom who lived downstairs... she made us traditional meals when we needed them and had quite the impact on us. This is now my new destination... I/we will be back very soon.
2 weeks of pure delight.
This loft has everything, the view, the location, the settings ...everything.
To top it Linda the owner's mother and property manager,helpful, available at all times,
not invasive,such a wonderful inspiration !
Car recommended?: we did'nt have one and never missed it. Very good bus services, cheap. One should know though that there is some climbing to get back but we loved it.
My stay here was just amazing. The view from the condo was outstanding. The pool area and palapa couldn't have been any better. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay in the hills above Manzanillo this is the place for you. The owners were kind and very considerate of our space, plus you can have an amazing meal cooked for you when ever you want it. I can't wait to go back!!!!
Our weekend there was amazing, everything was so clean an the hospitality is 100% guaranteed.
If you have the chance please visit Casita Hills.
Nearest attraction is the Ola brisa botanical garden featuring palms and plants from all over the world and Mexico.
