Overview

Manzanillo Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 4

Condo Bella Vista is part of the Condominio El Faro complex sitting more than 300 feet above Santiago Bay and the warm, blue Pacific. Our west-facing balcony is a perfect place to watch whales or enjoy spectacular sunsets over the water. But this is only half the view, because the 600-square-foot balcony wraps around this top-floor condo providing 270 degrees of breathtaking scenery, including sunrise over the inland mountains that surround the city of Manzanillo and the lights of the city beneath sparkling star-filled nights. Newly renovated, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath contemporary unit is a perfect getaway for two couples or a family of four to five. The 14-foot ceilings and large windows throughout give the 1776-square-foot unit a bright, open feeling that draws in the spectacular outdoors, giving you the feeling you are living on top of the world. For the cost of an average hotel room, you get a private, 5-star experience that you'll remember a lifetime.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jack Trlica

Growing up in Texas, we've traveled throughout Mexico. We honeymooned in Ixtapa, experienced hurricanes near Tulum, explored the mountains above Puerto Vallarta, and enjoyed family beach homes on the Sea of Cortez. When we first visited Manzanillo in 2007, we fell in love because it's a wonderful mix of ocean beauty without the tourist hype...a relaxing place to escape work and, hopefully, the place we retire to one day.

Jack Trlica purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jack Trlica chose Manzanillo

We thought we wanted an oceanfront condo. But when we walked into Condo Bella Vista, the views literally took our breathe away. The beach is nearby and accessible. But the views of the ocean and surrounding mountains are just too awesome. We knew we were home at Condo Bella Vista.

What makes this condo unique

Condo Bella Vista at El Faro is an ideal location. The end unit on the top floor of building one is completely private. No one in the complex can see us. And because there are no neighbors, you have the feeling you are all alone on top of the world. At the same time, you have access to the ocean and wonderful neighbors to interact with when you want.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Traveling from Vancouver, BC, to meet our parents from Alberta and Pender Harbour, BC. We joined one set of parents here at El Faro because my brother and his in-laws own a condo here and they recommended this beautiful condo to us. They were here for the holidays with my brother and his wife, Zoe.



We decided sometime this spring that we'd all come down to celebrate Christmas and New Year's Eve since Zoe and Andrew were expecting a baby one week before my husband and I were (incidentally, his name is also Andrew). In short, both new babies were in tow: Annie, my brother's beautiful baby girl, and our baby, Jasper, 8 days younger than his cousin.



With my in-laws at Barcelo and Zoe's parents, along with several extended family members here, including her brother and sister, their partners (staying in the condo below), we celebrated Annie and Jasper's first Christmas with 29 people around the pool, 3 turkeys, all the trimmings, and some Mexican flare...spicy appetizers of margaritas and fresh prawn ceviche!



Jasper and Annie banked many hours poolside and at the beach. Both slept through the incredible fireworks display viewed from the pool/tower here at El Faro.



The condo was a great place to gather and we loved the gorgeous sunset views from the patio. What a memorable, special trip!



Another highlight: a private Mexican cooking lesson held right here in the kitchen!



Many thanks,

Nancy and Andrew, Vancouver, BC

Family of four spent the holidays at this exceptional property.

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic choice for our 2013 holiday! The property is well situated on a hill summit with incredible views of both the ocean and the town of Manzanillo. Picture a growing storm of billowing grey clouds moving in from the north, bolts of lightening seeking distant peaks contrasted with the colorful sunset over the Pacific in shades of blue, purple, orange, pink and red. Watching the New Year's Eve celebration from the Condo Bella Vista balcony we saw basketball sized candle flame powered "balloons" rise above the city glowing softly as they drifted in the breeze. For our family of four adults (parents and two children) the Condo Bella Vista was as much an attraction as the beach, the surrounding communities and the night clubs. It was a comfortable home to return to after a day of exploring or sampling restaurant cuisine. For home cooked meals the kitchen provided a convenience for four people with different tastes in food. The expansive layout of the property allowed privacy and escape when each of us sought solitude.
Owner Jack was professional in his administration of the property and assisted us when asked about some specific logistics. The condominium management were helpful and the woman who cleans the property twice a week knows what clean is!
I do suggest that if guests are arriving by their own car that directions be available from some landmark in Manzanillo to assist finding the property.
If you are concerned about not being located directly on the beach, don't be. There are multiple beach locations to check out depending upon the type of activity you want. Don't miss beach town of Barra de Navidad about 40K north. Laid back and friendly, good food and "bar" kiosks along the walkway. They got surf too! A distinct difference from Manzanillo.
Thanks Jack and Condo Bella Vista for helping us enjoy a wonderful family vacation.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you chose Condo Bella Vista and enjoyed your stay. You've joined a long list of visitors who have delighted in the spectacular views of the oceans and mountains from our balcony, as well as the comfort of the spacious, homey condo...a world of difference over a hotel room. We've never had the opportunity to be there Christmas or New Year's Eve. Based on your experience, it sounds like we have to do that soon. Thanks again, TJ. Hope to host you again in the future. Jack

Wonderful Time in Manzanillo

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic Christmas holiday at Condo Bella Vista. The large, well appointed Condo was our little piece of heaven during our week long visit to Mexico.The panoramic view was amazing, something we took advantage of as much as possible, especially during sunset. We also enjoyed the refreshing daily dips in the pool. I highly recommend Condo Bella Vista to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: It's always gratifying when our visitors have an enjoyable time at Condo Bella Vista. I spoke to Brian after his visit and his family not only took full advantage of the condo and the facilities at El Faro, but visited many of the attractions in and around Manzanillo. We look forward to hosting Brian's family in the future.

Luxury and Value

  • 5 of 5
Since our original visit to Condo BellaVista in 2009 we have visited Manzanillo and returned to Condo BellaVista annually. Each time on our return we find that our hosts have continued to make improvements to the condo to make it even more luxurious, comfortable and accommodating. Changes have included small things like kitchen appliance upgrades or decorative touches, to major improvements such as new terracotta flooring throughout the condo and major bath remodeling. It's obvious that Jack and Cindy take pride in making sure that their guests are treated to the very nicest of accommodations during their vacation in Manzanillo. We plan to return and continue to highly recommend Condo BellaVista for your vacation in Manzanillo.

Owner's Response: We are so lucky to have Tom and Connie stay in our condo each January through March. They are perfect guests, and even though we have never met them in person, feel like they are long-time friends. They definitely have become part of the El Faro "family." We hope to develop new friends like Tom and Connie who will enjoy Condo Bella Vista every year. Please consider trying our comfortable condo the next time you visit Manzanillo.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to Manzanillo was our first time in Mexico and we can't wait to go back! We had no idea what to expect, but Condo Bella Vista was absolutely wonderful. Spacious, clean and comfortable, with amazing views. We spent a lot of time on the porch just relaxing and taking in the scenery.

It really felt like a home away from home. There is wifi (very important to us!). The kitchen is fully equipped and fully functional and grocery shopping is very close by. Guidebooks and maps are provided and really helped us get our bearings. The owners were very responsive answered all of our questions before and during our stay. The beds are comfortable. What more could you ask for?

The condo is in close proximity to so many different beaches, each with its own personality. Some of them are walkable, but we rented a car and were able to visit even more. When we weren't interested in the beach, the pools at the condo complex were great. Everyone we ran into at the complex was very friendly and helpful.

With all the beaches, the pools, a day trip to Colima, shopping and restaurants, our trip to Manzanillo flew by. We definitely will stay at Condo Bella Vista when we return - and perhaps bring some friends!

What a stunning place. So big, spacious, airy and comfortable. The views are fantastic and although Manzanillo is a great place to visit I could have spent my whole vacation in the condo and at one of the 3 fabulous pools. The ocean breezes keep the whole place cool even on the hottest days. And the maps, menus and booklets provided at the condo were so helpful for someone who had never been in this area before. We loved our time at Condo Bella Vista.

This is one of the nicest condos in Manzanillo

  • 5 of 5
Having visited Manzanillo many times over the last 25 years, Condo BellaVista is by far the nicest we have rented. Everything is new and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of storage. Rooms are spacious with comfortable, attractive furnishings. The condo has Wifi access, a beautiful new HDTV and stereo, and even an attachment for my iPod. Most important, the bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. And the view from the wrap around terrace is fantastic.

Although this is a relatively large condo complex (5 buildings), it is very quiet. And Condo Bella Vista at the top floor of Building 1 is very private. The three swimming pools on the property are beautiful and our neighbors charming and friendly. Muchos Canadiense, eh!

El Faro is close to everything on the peninsula - golf, tennis, swimming and snorkeling a five minute walk away on Audiencia beach, and for longer beach hikes the 5 mile long and flat beaches of Santiago Bay are just down the hill. Shopping is a only a 10 minute cab ride or drive away and there are all types of restaurants nearby, some in walking distance.

The owner was very helpful in getting us established and has checked on our satisfaction. Happily we have had little problem.
All in all, this is the perfect setting for a great visit to Manzanillo. We greatly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our return We can highly recommend Condo BellaVista . It's worthy of its 5 star rating.
