About Rory Pike

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!!!

Total relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with a group of 10 and stayed at Casablanca for 2 weeks. This villa is absolutely stunning. From the rooms to common areas, all was very well appointed. The pool was refreshing. The meals prepared by Rosario and Lara were with care and delicious. The cleaning staff did your laundry every day and cleaned the rooms to perfection. The best part of our holiday was our interaction with the bartender/grounds keeper, Rafael. He is a great man and makes amazing drinks! He is friendly and speaks quite good English. He can set you up with anything and give you directions etc.

word of advice, use the taxis to go into town or anywhere as they are very cheap. Don't get sucked into bus rentals.

Further, enjoy the beach and bring lots of sunscreen as it is very hot there and not a day of rain or cloud!

I would definitely recommend this villa. We will return one day I'm sure.

Also, thanks to The owner Rory, who was very quick with questions and very helpful and made your rental experience enjoyable.

Just Plain Wow

  • 5 of 5

The place was jaw dropping fantastic! Everything was as described in the listing. The customer service was top notch and Rosario, Raphael and the rest of the staff were amazing. Lalo was great too. I hope to go back next year. Definitely recommend to friends. The beach was fun for volleyball. Pool was great for "wall ball" and we managed to get out for some deep sea fishing. The snorkeling was great too and we managed to see some humpback whales. Our one night out away from the wives was nice at the casino and Lalo made sure we arrived home safe.

This was truly an experience of a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

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.
