About the property

4 king bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Our villa, Casa de la Paloma, is on Santiago Bay and Playa Miramar, a three mile long beach, perfect for long walks and jogging. Seven families co-own this villa. You will be dealing directly with the owners, rather than through a middleman agent. You may contact either one of the US or Mexican owners directly, if there is ever any problem. Please be advised we require you sign a one page rental agreement, like a memo of understanding. No rental is final until this one page agreement is approved by both the renter and an owner representative. This private oceanfront villa for rent features 4 equal size King bedrooms, each with private bath. Each bedroom has it's own individual air conditioner. Additionally, we have a full kitchen, formal dining room and an air conditioned TV and Recreation room. The TV and Recreation room has a game table, six chairs, large sofa and TV with Satellite Connection, DVD, and a DVD library of over 100 movies. You can hear and see the ocean surf from each room. Casa de la Paloma is great for couples or families. Internet WiFi, fast enough for streaming movies, is included at no additional charge. We allow outgoing calls to US and Canada for up to 60 minutes per week at no additional charge.

Casa de la Paloma-Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We were guests of Casa de la Paloma during early December 2008. We had four generations of us staying for a family holiday. Everything that was described to us and assured to us was met. Mr. Watkins was very quick to answer our questions with an honest opinion. Those opinions were accurate. We included the house keeper for a couple of meals, visited with the pool people, and talked with the grounds keeper. They were all very friendly and went beyound expectations for a reasonable helpfullness. The beach is the best on the Pacific side of Mexico. Our two year old grandchild enjoyed playing in the surf and sand. He played with the Mexican children on the beach while we shared common life experiences with the parents. It was friendly and great. Use the people for tours that Jess recommends. There is no snorkeling on the beach just out side the property but a ten minute walk north leads you to great opportunities. If you are a diver all of the boat or shore dives originate in that ten minute walk. I am a master scuba diver and the wreck is not to be missed. The snorkel crowd (my wife) only experience the top portion of the wreck but 100 feet down there is a world to be explored. Please be certified for wreck penetration and you will be surprised. If you want to go fishing do not use the recommended parties. They try hard but they are not the best. I fish all over (thats a good enough description), Go to downtown Manzanillo by the big fish. Ask for Captian Jose on the Banna boat. It is a ponga that is a little rough, has shade, and has and outstanding fisherman. In previous trips we have caught up to 100 fish a day with the best being 23 dorado. This is not normal but Jose always gets into the fish. I took the recommended fisherman with my father-in-law and my son-in-law and we caught nada. No take downs no nothing. In six trips with Jose this never happened. We rented a car (expensive insurance) and were able to travel around the county side. The stop at El Salto was the best. There are many places to explore by car if you desire. The major stores are 15 minutes away if you choose. The local stores have most everything if you desire. I am called the Italian Housewife (hey, I'm a guy) an thus I love going to the markets, both superstores and local. Do the local markets (I forgot the name) for true Mexican culture. The flea market operates on the week-end and it is very good. There are good values in the artasian market.

Great family experience!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Manzanillo every year for the last 15 years and this was by far our best experience. The beach right outside of our door. Enjoying our breakfast in the morning while the kids are in the pool or playing on the beach was just perfect. The beach is among the nicest in Mexico and totally safe for kids since there are no big waves. Great staff. Nice house. Totally worth it!

Pool, Sun and Beach with Privacy

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect when traveling with multiple families. It has privacy for all with the bedrooms each having their own bathroom etc. There is plenty of room to gather as a group as well. We were able to hire Dani from Dani tours to arrange for transportation, meals cooked in and massages under the palapa. We can't wait to return.

Wonderful home on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for two weeks with three couples. It was everything we expected and more. Beautiful view from every room in the house. The palapa was a nice place to sit and watch the activity on busier beach days and the beach umbrella was only steps from the front of the house for the times we wanted to enjoy being on the beach. We didn't spend much time indoors, but the air conditioning in the bedrooms was nice to have at night. Joley came everyday and took very good care of the home and us. We did not have her shop or cook for us, as we enjoy doing those things, but it was wonderful to have her wash all of the dishes everyday. She speaks little to no English, and we are not very good at Spanish, so google translate was a big help in that department. Both owners called us to check in during our stay and address any needs we had. Having a driver pick us up at the airport was wonderful and we did not rent a car as taxi's are very inexpensive to get you to the store when needed. We walked the beach to restaurants, which is very easy. Our favorite is Oasis for dinner and the fishing village for lunch. We did walk to the Beach Club, right past Oasis for some breakfasts and lunches.

We have already booked again for two weeks next year and would not hesitate to recommend this home to others.

Excellent place to relax and enjoy life

  • 5 of 5

Casa de la Paloma is amazing. If you're looking for a spot to get away from everything, this is your place! There may be a lot to do (tours or adventures) but we can't comment on that. We just relaxed and watched/listened to the waves. And it was perfect.

Our littles loved the pool. And the owners couldn't be more kind, helpful and informative.

The one thing we did do other than just drink tequila and play in the pool and ocean with the kids (not in that order) is we did go see the sea turtle rescue. Which was tons of fun for us and the kids.

Highly recommended.

Imagine being in the Pacific Ocean yet waking-up to the sun rising from the sea in the most spectacular way!

Imagine trying to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner when you can’t take your sight away from palm trees and a pristine ocean right at your doorstep!!

Imagine living in a dream-world yet feeling you've come back home!!!

If you can imagine all this you've arrived at Casa de la Paloma, where the Mexican warmth and incomparable service of the house’s staff will make you feel that this is the place where you belong.

To say that our vacation was awesome pales in comparison to what our memories and senses will recall until we return to this paradise, and for those who will read these thoughts with skepticism just wait till you’re there!!

The Fe family wishes to thank the owners and staff of Casa de la Paloma for an unforgettable vacation, and we are looking forward to ongoing “AWESOME” in the year to come!!
