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.
