Manzanillo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

We offer you a home like no other at Villas De Menorca. We hope that you will take a moment to view the photos and watch the video about our home and surrounding areas.


ONE Cobblestone block to the very best beach in Manzanillo

1400 sq. ft (130 sq. mtrs) 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with 4 balconies equalling 550 sq. ft 51 mtrs. There are two great advantages of being on the fourth floor, privacy and an amazing breeze running through our home. There are 3 flights of stairs.

We are much bigger than most units at Villas de Menorca. 2 large bedrooms each with a king size bed, sleeping mats and a covered balcony make for a third sleeping area.


Manzanillo, Mexican Riviera between Puerta Vallerta and Acapulco.

We are in an upscale gated community developed in the 1960's called Club Santiago. We are located in Bahia Santiago on the far North end of the bay.


The weather is in the low 80’s in the day and a delightful mid 70’s at night. Ocean temperature around 83 degrees. Fabulous ocean visibility.

Flying there:



Los Angeles on Alaska...go directly to alaskaair on the web for best fares.

we can arrange to have you picked up at the airport.

Puerta Vallarta and Guadalajara are each about 4 hrs. by very comfortable buses.

Transport in Manzanillo:

Airport to your door; 20 mins. Fare $25.00

The buses are wonderful and taxis are everywhere. Cheaper and easier to grab a cab than rent a car. Cab ride to town is $3.50-$7.00 depending on how far you go.

Food and Supplies:

The condo is totally equipped to cook, shopping is easy but restaurants are inexpensive and fabulous. The food is fresh and delicious.

You can walk to the corner store for supplies or two blocks to a decent sized market. There is a Supermarket further down the road. Our housekeeper can help you out.

The beach is stunning…it is an easy wonderful place to go. The condo has everything you need to enjoy your time. The 3 mile beach is the finest around, the sand is soft and the waves gentle, sunset swimming, moonlit walks…


Huge fishing area

Golf and Tennis

Two pools and a FABULOUS BEACH

The town of Santiago is ten minutes away by bus or cab. Santiago has a wonderful traditional market with lots of fresh produce and seafood. Saturdays is open market day.

About Lauren

Here are the owners on the left and our dear friend Irma. She grew up in Manzanillo and we vacationed there with her and her husband. They are very good friends of ours from Santa Barbara. Without them we would have never found Manzanillo.

Part of the motivation of buying there was I am trying to become fluent in Spanish. Manzanillo is a wonderful place to practice Spanish. The locals are so kind and helpful. I feel so a part of a small community. I keep saying Manzanillo but we really are in another area Santiago, although connected, is very far different. I share our home because we enjoy sharing and it is expensive to own a second home!

We will do all we can to direct you to a wonderful time in our second home.

Lauren purchased this condo in 2008

Why Lauren chose Manzanillo

It was the stunning beach that made up our minds. We really liked being up in the trees where the breeze is strong. For us either it was ocean front or having a great breeze and an easy walk to the beach. We could have bought ocean front, but too far away from a city, so Club Santiago and Villas de Menorca was a great choice for us. If you can afford ocean front, do it, otherwise we are a fantastic option for ocean and quiet lovers.

What makes this condo unique

When we are there we like to wake up early, put coffee in thermal cups and head down to the beach for the sunrise. Since we closed escrow April 2008 each of the three trips we have worked our butts off creating the home that you see, I even worked hard at getting the pictures you see! We went shopping in Tlagapaque and Tonala for all the pretty traditional things in our place. So the morning coffee at the beach was an important part of our day. Then to close each work day out at sunset we would take a shot of tequila down and swim in the ocean until dark. Sunset on the Pacific with a fine Mexican Tequila kissing my beloved...doesn't get much better...except walking home in my bathing suite and being comfortable in just a sarong.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in this colorful apartment located in one of the best spots in Manzanillo; the unit is close to the beach, transportation and a golf course almost next door. The building has a large swimming pool which is never crowded. The smaller pool for kids is perfect for their splashing around. Both offer the right mix of privacy and company from some of the good neighbours in this community. The gardens of the complex are also extremely well maintained and pleasant.

What I liked most about the apartment is its personality; I felt like staying at a friend's place rather than in a rental unit. The apartment is large, decorated with Mexican authentic furniture and dinnerware. The owner has placed great attention to details making it a very comfortable place for any weather conditions (summer, winter, year round). The terrace and windows have mosquito nets which come in handy when having a glass of wine at the terrace at dawn.

We look forward to staying in this apartment again.

Had a wonderful relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Lauren!

Everything you said was there in great style. At night it was so romantic you picked awesome lighting. Sara came to clean and did such a good job. All the info you gave us came in handy-Pifa's was one of our favorite restaurants too. The beach is stunning and the 2 pools in the complex were pretty to look at but the truth is we spent all our time in the ocean. I'm going to tell all my friends in Seattle about your home.

Owner's Response: One of the best parts of having a vacation home is hearing back from people who enjoyed all the wonderfulness of being at our home. I am so fortunate to have so many great renters and really enjoy hearing about their experiences.

Perfect Mexican vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this area of Mexico three times prior. We stayed at all inclusive a, an apartment hotel in Santiago and a house in la Manzanillo (for 3 months). This has been the best of all! It is a roomy, comfortable, beautifully decorated apartment. The gated community offers excellent security and the Oasis restaurant is truly wonderful for a few hours on the beach, a lunch, or dinner in the restaurant. Many sounds fill the air, birds, happy families, music... Pool or beach, take your pick, both are great. The town of Miramar is a short walk for groceries. Mexico is a developing nation, and this is a perfect Mexican holiday location!

Club Santiago accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the accomodation for two months and would have liked to stayed much longer. The accomodation was much nicer than we had expected. The unit was very well equipped and exceptionally clean. The location is great and we would definately stay again. We certainly would recommend.

Villas de Menorca

  • 5 of 5

Your condo at Villas de Menorca was excellent. Thanks for the great beds and linen. The small things can mean so much. We had a great time! I have explored nearly every State in MX and this area was the first I experienced cars stopping for pedestrians. We made lots of friends, including Sara who was a sweetheart. Best location for exploring. I found great tennis with locals in Cihuatlan. Met Diego (Oasis owner), also a tennis player. My daughter and her friend from Vera Cruz enjoyed the local nightlife with a nice mix of locals and home owners. Food..mmm. Beach, whales, snorkeling, fishing ...time ended up being too short.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve! Sara (our housekeeper) was thrilled when I told her you appreciated her service. Nothing makes me happier than a guest who is so happy with everything that they submit a review without being asked to! Lauren

We spent a wonderful month at a very clean and

attractive apartment. Usually we ate on the deck

facing the road, and ended our days with an early

drink and crisps or nuts on the deck facing the

pool. Sometimes the sounds of the church bells in

Miramar would sound, a cow, a donkey, an atv, a

car with music [or not], a truck on the main road

slowing, a bus going down to the ramadas, a dog,

a cat, a bird, a screeching bat, a cooing dove, a low

flying helicopter, a 'plane, mariachis in Miramar,

fireworks - there was always the happy sounds of

life, children, - or nothing but the rustling coconut

palms or the odd coconut falling. Mexican holidays

brought many people, whilst at other times

sometimes we would find ourselves the only people

on the beach early or late in the day. The stars and

full moon are wonderful, especially on a high tide.

Walking through the parks in this immaculate place

was fun. We watched the fireflies, which were new

to me - [I thought they were a fable]!

Car or no car, everything is nearby, or

transportation to get you there fast, quite

frequently, and cheaply, and on a level road. There

are benches to sit on and showers to use at the

beach. It is completely safe, and is well patrolled.

For us we found the sea the best option to swim in.

[The waves can be quite strong even though they

are not always high]. We saw many different kinds

of marine life including whales and rays from the

shore. Iguanas are there, binoculars help; as well

as crocodiles in the lagoon. We saw an iguana

swim in a pool twice - I had no idea they could do

that. I thought I had scared it and it had drowned -

it was down for so long! In the forest there are

huge tarantulas, well hidden snakes, chickens......

Colima is wonderful state, as are the neighboring

states, and well worth the effort to get out of town

and see. I left some ideas from our visit/s in a

book at the apartment. Everywhere is quite well

patrolled and safe right now.

You have privacy and the best maid we have had in

fifteen years of visiting Mexico!

Thank you Lauren for opening up your beautiful condo at Villas De Menorca! Our family of 5 had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s celebration and we hope to return again soon. We spent almost every day on the beautiful beach, and we feel it is probably one of the best beaches we have been to in Mexico. The bus and taxi service to and from the little town of Santiago was perfect and we enjoyed tacos y carnes almost every day. No rental car is needed. We went deep sea fishing, catching a barracuda that our captain quickly made into the best civeche we have eaten! Great time, great condo, highly recommended. Bring your swim suit, beach blanket, flip-flops, a couple par of shorts and t-shirts and you are set. It gets very busy over the Holiday time, with Fiesta's happening might want ear plugs at night! Enjoyed every minute of our time. Thanks for a beautiful spot to spend a relaxing holiday.

We usually spend most of our time in Club Santiago and Santiago. We get as far South as Salagua but rarely make it to Manzanillo. A day trip to Colima and Colama is a nice excursion. There is local surf and Pascuales (expert surfers only!) is about 1-1.5 hour away and people carpool there.
