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!!!

Magnificent! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Five family members and three friends celebrated 3 birthdays at the beautiful Villa Casablanca in late March 2016.

It was a truly wonderful and relaxing vacation. “It was magnificent” my wife answered when asked by a friend after our return to home base.

There are spectacular 180 degree views of Manzanillo Bay.

I was usually awake before 7am so I could see the sunrise.

Then I would walk to the private beach and enjoy my morning run before breakfast.

We all highly recommend engaging Haro Tours as they provided readily available transportation during our stay at Villa Casablanca. It is very convenient to have transportation available upon arrival and departure from Manzanillo Airport.

The hospitality and service provided by the staff was top notch and greatly appreciated, especially the meals prepared by Rosario. Rafael does a superb job tending to the garden and also meeting all are beverage needs.

Lalo from Haro Tours was very helpful, arranging for daily excursions into town for horseback riding and other experiences.

A 4-seater golf cart also is available for guests.

The sunset is stunning.

All of us highly recommend Villa Casablanca and hope to return: Ralph, Cathie, Ralph-Patrick, Kathleen, Robert, Tina, Dan and Lisa.

The ultimate in a pampered relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a most amazing holiday at Villa Casablanca! The staff Rosario our cook and Raffael, our bartender could not have been more accommodating. Before we even arrived the owner provided us with a bar list so the bar was stocked with all of our favourites and a driver was pre-arranged and awaiting our arrival at the airport. The staff greeted us with margaritas and a beautifully prepared dinner on our arrival. What a lovely welcome. Although I had seen pictures and heard through others that have enjoyed it here, the actual experience and property exceeded my expectations. The views, complex, private beach club, and neighbouring properties are all magnificent.

It is safe, so clean and truly beautiful here. I can't wait to return and would highly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing, pampered holiday that makes you feel like royalty. Thankyou Rory and Kim

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is amazing. From the minute you walk thru the front entrance it is breathtaking. We were greeted at the airport in style even offered a cocktail along the way. On arrival we were greeted by the house staff that consist of a bartender and server, a chef and her assistant, along with a cleaning lady who also does your laundry. All of these people feel like part of your family by the time you leave. The rooms are way more then you would expect each having a living room to relax and your own private bathroom oasis. The dining is exquisite so tasty....Your every need is met 24-7. I definately recomend renting the driver and SUV for the week as all the excursions offered are a blast.

We will be back for a 4th time.

Relaxing Mexican Style

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do, do it justice. Beautiful spot. Great staff, and terrific food. Very quiet getaway. Great for couples or large group of friends. More space than you can use.

The property was spotless on arrival, and was kept that way through the stay. Owner and management team on site was great, and extremely helpful.

I'd recommend this for sure.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Villa Casablanca after spending a fabulous week at this luxury property with a group of friends.

The villa is very spacious, the grounds wonderfully maintained, the rooms beautifully furnished, very clean and comfortable. Each room, the expansive outdoor living space and pool area offer magnificent ocean views beyond what can be seen in the pictures.

Raphael, Rosario and the staff at the villa were very welcoming and really made you feel at home, while pampering you with outstanding service. You could tell the meals were prepared with great care and were fresh, healthy and delicious.

La Punta is a tranquil gated community and safety was never a concern. Each morning we would take a walk through the area, soaking in the stunning views, returning to breakfast out on the terrace.

The private beach club and pristine beach were within walking distance. The water was calm for swimming and also boasted a rocky area great for snorkeling.

This trip took Mexico to a new level for us and we can't wait for a return visit to paradise!
