About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The townhouse is located in Villa Marina, Mazatlan, Mexico. We are just north of the main city and is a very secure, gated community with 24/7 security guards on duty. It's within a 5 minute walk of the beach (just across the street). The complex has a pool (with outdoor showers and plenty of shaded areas), gym, jogging track, children's playground, BBQs and a basketball court.

This beautifully decorated townhouse is 1200 sq. ft. on two floors.

The main floor has a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bathroom, open and spacious kitchen/dining room/living room area and laundry room. Out the large sliding glass doors you will discover the beautifully finished private courtyard. It has a tiled floor, dining area, lounge area, built-in tiled gas BBQ and a lovely tropical flower garden. Upstairs has two bedrooms; one with a queen bed and the other with two singles. There is a full bathroom and a TV room as well.

The floor plan is very open, with 9 ft ceilings and a huge skylight above the stairs. All rooms have air conditioning. The courtyard gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon… perfect!

We have included beach chairs, beach towels, a large beach blanket and a cooler to take to the beach.

About Alan

We bought in Mazatlan, not just for rental income, but also because it is a great place to take the kids (they love it there!). Direct flights take just 4 hours and are relatively inexpensive. Once you’re there, it costs very little to have a great vacation.

Alan purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Alan chose Mazatlan

Close to the beach but away from all the crowded Hotel Zones and partiers. Things are very quiet and relaxing around our location. You can walk to several restaurants and shops or catch a quick and cheap bus or taxi into town. We also know several other Canadian families that own there.

What makes this townhome unique

Obviously the beach! We are just a 5 minute walk to miles of beautiful and (almost) deserted sandy beach. There is also lots of great (and cheap) restaurants and shopping close by. Our place is perfect for down days as well. Gated, safe and lovely complex has a nice pool to lounge by or just hanging out in the beautiful and private back yard with a spectacular flower garden and BBQ.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Alan,



It was wonderful. Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home there. We had a great time and all worked out well. We liked the area so much we got a place down the street from you a bit J



Antonio (on-site Property Manager)was hospitable and did a nice job as well. A few questions came up and he was readily available which was great.



Thanks again and take care.



Best,



Jim

Wonderfull Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Accommodations top notch, grounds very well kept, friendly neighbors.

Any problems we had were quickly dealt with, had water problem was fixed immediately. Off the property people were friendly and helpful. Restaurants that were recommended to us were excellent. Transportation to and from old town was reliable, and felt safe travelling to and from town. Would go back again if able to.

Beautiful, clean and safe place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here 2 times and we love it! This condo is very clean and well maintained. Everything we needed is there, they have also put together a list of places to shop at or to dine at which was very helpful. This is a beautiful home and very comfortable. I have two small children so safety was a must and we have always felt safe staying here.

Thanks Alan!

Nice clean safe place to vacation in mazatlan.

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great. The home is simple with all the amienties to make your stay pleasant. Pool area is just around the corner and beach is near. Backyard is inviting but bring mosquito repellent. Get your groceries and drinks and enjoy your vacation. Lots to do in mazatlan, go sight seeing, walk the long "malecón", get a "pulmonía" and have a good time. Antonio (the caretaker) was awesome, very attentive, he will help with anything you need. Overall this place is a great value and it's all you need for resting after a day/night in the town or just a lazy relaxing day at the pool or near by beach. We hope to be back to this place in the future.

Look no Further, You've found the one!

  • 5 of 5

If you read through the reviews there is a reason that almost all say that they will be back. I agree with all of them. I have stayed at several places in Mazatlan and this beats them all! The perfect place to come back and relax after a day at the beach. I would recommend this condo to anyone, and especially to those with kids. This condo has 2 floors with plenty of room for the whole family (nothing like the hotels or resorts). VERY clean and well maintained and a VERY comfortable stay. The full kitchen and grill have everything that you might need. It made cooking simple & easy saved us $$$ without having to eat out. Beach chairs, boogie boards and shade umbrella all came in handy since we did not have room to pack all those things. Alan (Owner) and Antonio (Manager that lives a few houses down) were a pleasure to deal with and accommodated us on very short notice after our other option cancelled on us at the last minute, and now I am glad that it did because we were very pleased with this place.

This condo best fits families or couples that are looking for a quiet getaway. It is about 5-10 minutes from the "Golden Zone" or tourist center of Mazatlan, so it is outside all of the noise and hustle and bustle but yet close enough for a quick cab ride. It is right down the street from the beach where you wont be hounded by vendors and sales people. Then at dusk head back to the amazing pool! It did help that we had a car to get around, but it isn't necessary as there are taxi's everywhere in Mazatlan and also there is a small market just down the street.

Best condo we stayed in yet. Stayed 1 month. It was very clean, quiet, well maintained and equipped. The pool was perfect we used it a every day. We did not mind the walk to the beach it was a daily routine for us for we like to walk a lot.

The barbecue was awesome was used regularly.

Manager Antonio and Victor were very helpful. We did not feel insecure on the compound or off it, people were very helpful and friendly.

The information that Alan provided was very helpful, would truly love to go back some other time.

Great townhouse in super location.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed in the townhouse. It was like coming to our home. We walked to the fabulous beach often, tried many, many excellent restaurants in Mazatlan, and enjoyed the amazing weather. We will be back.
