About Rory Pike

Rory and I fell in love with Manzanillo the very first time we visited. We loved it so much that we bought Villa Casablanca four months later. Our home was one of the original built in the beautiful community of La Punta twenty five years ago. As such, it was a prime location with outstanding views and unrivaled privacy. Upon purchase in 2009, we hired a contractor who spoke only Spanish and the adventure began ! ( neither Rory nor I speak Spanish , but we're learning ! ) Our permanent home is in Canada, so needless to say , there were a great many emails !

The Villa has been completely renovated, refurnished and renamed. The inspiration came from our many, much loved trips to Italy. It was these travels and memories that inspired the "old world " feel of Villa Casablanca. Our vision was to evoke a sense of classic, but comfortable elegance. All of the furniture was custom built in Guadalajara by amazing craftsmen. All of the upholstery and bed coverings were designed and also custom made in Guadalajara. We are still adding to the Villa and see it as a work in progress. Throughout this adventure we have met some wonderful people and have developed some treasured friendships. We love the warmth of the Mexican people, the culture, the ocean and the savory Mexican foods.

We wish you a wonderful holiday and hope that you experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. So, put your feet up, sip on a margarita and enjoy Villa Casablanca and the magnificent views of Manzanillo Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen !

Rory Pike purchased this villa in 2009

What makes this villa unique

The staff at Villa Casablanca are quite simply outstanding. Our guest book reflects this with every weeks comments.

The other thing that separate this villa are the views. They are completely unobstructed and we are at an elevation which makes you feel like you can touch the water while offering the advantage of enough height to provide a fantastic perspective on Manzanillo Bay and the mountains in the background.

The night time views are equally as captivating as the daytime views as we face Manzanillo Bay. If you face out to sea, views disappear with the sun

Guestbook comments from the owner

‎Hi Rory and Kim

Just wanted to touch base and let you know we had another fantastic week at Villa Casablanca!!!

Manzanillo is a hidden gem!!! The people are proud, kind, hard working and exceptionally friendly!

‎ We enjoyed, the massages and silver shopping at the Villa, golf, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, an ATV tour, a sunset cruise, many walks on the beach and finding little places to enjoy a cerveza or margarita, spoiled by local hospitality!!!

The La Punta community is beautiful and we loved walking through the streets, taking in views from different areas. ‎We even got to go through 2 open houses, affirming the beauty we have come to love from Villa Casablanca!!!!

Rosario, Any, Carmen and Rafael are beyond words!!!! Their endless professionalism and eagerness to please is what truly makes your place top notch! We had many tears saying goodbye!

Freddy and ALL his staff at Haro Tours are equally amazing, hard working, friendly and reliable!!! Freddy is doing very well getting his ATV business up and running and our crew were the first to blaze the new trails!!! They loved it!!!!

You are very well known in the community as being fabulous owners and having the best staff :)

We are certain we will return again next February! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing slice of heaven with us!!!

The pictures certainly do not do this property or this vacation justice! In fact, the setting, the view and the property are almost as incredible as the amazing staff and the luxurious experience they create for you. They truly take the experience to a new level by personalizing, customizing and fueling your experience at this luxurious villa. We really enjoyed the ability to connect with our friends, share meals and enjoy all of the amenities - including the incredibly beautiful and secluded beach. This is a great place to relax and play, you don't ever have to leave the villa (why would you when you have someone bringing you your favorite drink poolside and cooking your meals to enjoy overlooking the ocean) - or you can explore the amazing city of Manzanillo and all that it has to offer (our driver took us to all the best spots!). I would recommend this villa and it's incredible experience to couples, groups of friends and families alike. In fact, I'm already getting ready to book again for next year!! Thank you!

Exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Casablanca is spectacular!!! The view was breathtaking from each and every section of the house and terrace with a beautiful beach club a short walk or cart ride away. We had a totally relaxing week. Rosario and the staff provided exceptional service, each and every meal was 5 star while Rafael creates some of the best drinks one could ever experience. The entire villa was spotless and the gardens manicured! The pictures on the website are really beautiful but wait until you see this place…it is even more beautiful than what the pictures show. Sometimes a vacation rental doesn't live up to its photos and description, but this Villa far exceeded our expectations. All the details were done right, first class luxury all of the way and yet we felt comfortable and at home. The owner was responsive to our needs and ensured everything was in place for our arrival - True to his word! One of the best vacations we have taken and we look forward to returning soon! Highly recommend this experience.

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone else!

  • 5 of 5

The stunning succulent gardens at the entrance of Villa Casablanca draw you into the foyer and the entrance to a luscious slice of paradise. We returned in January for a repeat visit and I am almost reluctant to share, in case too many people find out about this treasure.

We were picked up at the airport and whisked through the warm night air to the gated La Punta community. Raffa, Rosario, Laura and the rest of the staff greeted us with Raffa's signature margaritas and the first of many luxurious choices began....which of the massive suites to choose??

Each suite!! has a sitting room, dressing area, a huge bathroom and stunning views of Manzanillo Bay.

We then sat down to the first of many memorable meals. Rosario shops daily for fresh ingredients for each meal and that is where more of those difficult decisions kick in. Every day breakfast was served on the terrace and after deciding which fresh fruit to have with my yogurt and granola, there were eggs, pancakes or French toast, mountains of bacon and fresh orange juice! Fish tacos by the pool for lunch, or maybe quesadillas, or ceviche or chicken salad.... And Raffa's margaritas or daiquiris or whichever refreshment you now needed. And dinner, the most delicious coconut shrimp - still craving - Fresh fish! always perfectly prepared! Rosario's key lime pie!! We had to have that again on our last night... and someone in our group had a plate with two pieces served to save him going to the kitchen for seconds later on �

We watched the glorious sunrise every morning, relaxed on the many terraces, scooted to the pristine beach on the golf cart, had massages with cool breezes fluttering over us. There are tennis courts and golf, markets to stroll and stunning gardens up and down the meandering roads of the community!

Sunshine all day, Every day! I sit here in the cold white north and am envious of the guests now enjoying the luxurious Villa Casablanca! Shhhh! don't tell anyone else!!

Awesome, Amazing, Relaxing and Exxellent! Loved the house, La Punta community, the house staff, and the delicious food. There are no words to describe Audi and Aerie. Each morning we would take a walk through the community before breakfast--great workout. Thank you for your generosity and hospitality in sharing your home.

From the moment we arrived at Manzanillo and were greeted by our friendly, English-speaking driver until we gave hugs to all the wonderful staff at Villa Casablanca as we departed, our every need was met.

When we arrived at the villa and entered the magnificent property, immediately an expansive view of beautiful Manzanillo Bay appeared before us. Raphael, the houseman, Rosario, the chef, and all the other staff members greeted us and offered tasty Margaritas to those who wanted them.

Our spacious, well-appointed room provided sweeping views so we awoke each morning to the amazing sunrise. The outside balconies were perfect for enjoying the sunsets, swimming, reading or whatever else we felt inclined to do.

Rosario is a great chef and meals were always wonderful and interesting. It was also obvious that Rosario and her staff are happy in their jobs as there was always singing heard from the kitchen as they went about their preparations. Raphael was always a joy as he constantly checked to see that we had everything we wanted and pleasantly went about his chores.

Whether enjoying the nearby beach, taking walks through picturesque La Punta, enjoying Manzanillo etc., it was always interesting, beautiful and relaxing.

It was truly an idyllic week in a magnificent setting. Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven!

Perched on the hillside overlooking Manzanillo Bay, the La Punta private beach and the Pacific ocean. Located in the renowned La Punta development with private beach club and tennis courts. Adjacent to (with access to the facilities and discounts for services) Las Hadas Resort and golf course. Minutes to all amenities, yet remote enough to be a different world.
