I am an art critic, curator and collector. Studied my Master's degree on Contemporary Art in London at Sotheby's Institute. Work in the art world, currently based in Mexico City

Vanesa Fernandez purchased this villa in 1970

I am mostly interested in beauty and historical values of really important art pieces and architecture, such as this property. The reason for renting it is because it is a holiday home, so it can be rented the resto of the time.

There is no other property like it in the country. It has been featured in Purple Magazine in France, Wallpaper Magazine in London, and Celeste Magazine in Mexico, amongst many other architecture books and magazines.

Main attraction:

The beauty and story of the house

The house belonged to dolores del rio, the mexican hollywood actress that left her acting carreer to become the partner of orson wells. She was with him when he filmed citizen cane. It is an historic house, the first modern architectural work in mexico, built in acapulco in 1945, by renowned mexican architect enrique del moral (best known for his unam building, universidad autonoma de méxico). 'el gringo' del moral, as he was called, was very influential mostly in the way he incorporated vernacular architecture into modern buildings. So nature: the rainforest and ocean around, are beautifully incorportated into the house architecture in its terraces. As this house is considered one of his matespieces, the house is featured in most books on mexican architecture, as well as contemporary international magazines such as wallpaper, purple magazine and celeste magazines, amongst others.

What the house offers:

The house has a private swimming pool, 2 dining rooms (outdoors and on the terrace) a garden, a palmtree forest, a freshwater creeek, 2 beaches (1 sandy and 1 rock cliff) and the most amazing views framed by beautiful architecture. It has free wifi and a sound system with speakers to hear music. Most guests hardly ever leave the property grounds and enjoy spending their holidays inside the property grounds. If you are the stay-in kind, there is no better place than this on earth. Groceries, food, etc. Is arranged by the butler of the house.

Unparalleled attraction: location

The house is the only building in a penninsula, so it is almost like living in an island of your own. But it is wonderfully located in the original 1940s residential acapulco area where, for instance, the elvis presley films were made. It is conveniently right between the bay of acapulco and pie de la cuesta only 10 to 15 minutes drive to either beach.

1) acapulco bay: offers all kinds of sea related attractions such as skiing, fishing, and diving, that can be booked from the house. It also offers very good restaurants, famous bars and fantastic nightlife.

2) pie de la cuesta: is more relaxed from heavy tourism, yet very pintoresque. It is pet friendly, has very little tourists, and few hotels. Pie de la cuesta offers an enormous sandy beach with waves for surfers, as well as a lagoon. You can water ski at the lagoon and have wonderful food in the small design hotels owned by europeans mostly.

3) transportation: there is an air conditioned van for 12 people available in the house with a driver. The tariffs for rides in the van run from 10 usd to 80 usd depending on the distance.
