Overview

About the property

TWO BEDROOMS--GUEST HAS TWO TWINS-CAN CONVERT TO KING SIZE

SUNSET VIEW FROM YOUR DECK AND BEDROOM! Enjoy the magnificent sunset view from the living room and deck of this topfloor luxury condo in Estrella Del Mar. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and a deck overlooking the view of the huge infinity pool, the beach and the ocean. Leave the sliding door open and go to sleep to the sound of the surf.

BEAUTIFUL EXTRA BEDROOM SET UP FOR KIDS OR ADULTS. The spare bedroom overlooks the Robert Trent Jones golf course. It is set up for your convenience w/two twin beds which can be pushed together and 'converted' to a king by adding a small insert and connecting the beds. (All the bedding is there to use the beds as twins or as a king.)

WE PROVIDE THE AFFORDABLE LUXURY YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. For instance, there is beer in the fridge when you arrive. Other extras include yoga mats, boogie board, binoculars, free weights, books and DVDs on the shelves, recipes for seafood cooking, extra beach towels, new 350-count sheets, ipod speakers so you can enjoy your own music, maps, directions etc. We love this retreat and we try to ensure our guests do too. We leave staples in the kitchen such as sugar, flour, many spices, butter, coffee, ketchup, salsa etc. We just ask that if you use something up you replace it for the next guest. This consideration has worked well for our guests-Please see our guest's comments.

This is a super RELAXING tropical retreat--you can turn off the demands of the outside world completely, lie by the pool, stroll the lengthy beach and dine at the clubhouse if you like. (Or you can stay connected via the wireless internet service, boogy board in the surf, kayak, horseback ride, or golf, golf, golf on the Robert Trent Jones golf course (which is currently only $45w/cart after 1 pm!)

Everything has been arranged for your convenience. You can even pre-order your groceries so they are in your kitchen when you arrive. So... pack your swim suit, some walking clothes, some books and maybe a favorite CD, and have some fun .... (You probably want your golf clubs, sunglasses and your camera too.) We even have some favorite shrimp recipes available for you to try in the kitchen (Mazatlan is the shrimp capital of the world). In the evening you can toast the sunset from the balcony, have a soak in the hot tub and go to sleep to the roar of the surf.

When you're ready to explore, go down to Stone Island where you can rent horses or kayaks, go to Old Mazatlan or the Golden Zone to shop, or venture off to a nearby mountain village. There are maps in the condo.

The food ranges from easy to gourmet (without the pricetag) to casual. Dine at Estrella Del Mar's oceanfront restaurant under a palapa (great Margaritas) or at Cuchupetl's famous seafood restaurant in Villa Union (very casual but incredibly good), or feed the family easily in your granite kitchen with GE Profile appliances. This is truly the perfect vacation getaway for you and your friends or family.

About Bonni or Dave

In the photo we just went to the opera in Mazatan's historic district. We went across the street to the hotel with the rooftop bar/restaurant afterwards. It was a beautiful night!

The people at Estrella Del Mar are very welcoming.

We love the ocean, the pool, the golfing, the food, the shopping and sightseeing and THE SUNSETS!

Bonni or Dave purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bonni or Dave chose Sinaloa

The weather is WONDERFUL (80-90) when our weather in North America is not. We love the people here and it is quiet, warm, secure, and beautiful. Of course we also enjoy walks along the beach, exploring nearby villages, fantastic seafood and the golfing!

What makes this condo unique

We have a good collection of movies, music, recipes for seafood, and some books which we encourage our guests to enjoy together. We also have a boogie board and binoculars here for enjoying the surf. Our sunsets from the deck of our condo are fabulous. The turtle sanctuary offers unique opportunities to observe the giant sea turtles laying their eggs (in August and September) and to release baby turtles into the sea (primarily in November, December).

This was a beautiful location for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this condo in Estrella del Mar was lovely!!! The condo was nicely decorated, spacious and clean. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and it has a washer and dryer which let us pack lightly. Dave and Bonni thought of everything prior to our arrival. They sent a welcome packet to us prior to our trip filled with directions and information pertinent to our stay. They also have more information available in the condo such as restaurant recommendations, excursions, etc. The pool was magnificent overlooking the ocean and we also enjoyed long walks on the beach. We rarely saw anyone on our walks...we even got to rescue a few baby turtles! We enjoyed the hotel restaurant and staff. The food was amazing and very inexpensive. It's just a short walk down the beach. Having groceries delivered prior to your stay would be a bonus. We used the shuttle at the hotel to go into Mazatlan for the day and also to get groceries at Walmart. The weather was in the low 80's which was a bonus for us coming in from snow in Seattle! We had a lovely honeymoon---thank you Dave and Bonni for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!

Total relaxation in Paradise!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our week at your condo. It was practically deserted so we had the pool to ourselves most days and it is a beautiful pool. We didn't have a car which we will have next time. We got our cab driver to take us to town with a grocery store on our way from the airport. We picked up some staples mainly for breakfast and that was fine. We took our golf clubs and the staff at the golf course were wonderful. They came and picked up our golf clubs and stored them at the golf course for the week. It was a beautiful 10 minute walk down the beach to the golf course which we enjoyed every morning. We golfed 18 holes the first day at 7:00 a.m. but found it too hot after about hole 14 so only played 9 holes after that. The golf course is very well kept, very scenic and quite challenging. We usually had something to eat at the golf course before walking back to the condo and going for a swim. The beach is beautiful and great for walking. Saw all sorts fish, manta rays, dolphins in the water and all the little crabs and birds along the beach. The hotel is the other way down the beach and we went there for dinner. Very nice and reasonably priced. A few times we just picked up a salad and a bottle of wine to go and ate at the condo. A couple we met had a car and picked us up some fresh shrimp and fish from the market. Best shrimp ever and cheap!!! Had enough for 3 meals for about $10.00. Food at the golf course is very good as well. Free chips and salsa with our drinks. They even turned the hockey game on for us. It was actually nice not having a car but need one to get the fresh sea food market. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We spent most of our time on the balcony and the sunsets are spectacular. Bonni and Dave are very accommodating and easy to deal with. We only had one minor glitch with the hot water but it was very easily fixed with a phone call. Looking forward to our next trip. Thanks Bonni and Dave.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thorough review--so glad you enjoyed yourselves! The shrimp is really amazing, isn't it! And the golf course too! I agree that a car is nice to have--I believe Enterprise will bring one out to you and then you can use the road to Stone Island and the foot ferry and a Pulmonia to go shopping if you don't want to drive in downtown traffic. Stay warm through the rest of the winter! Bonni
