About Richard William Gehweiler

Rick and I have been coming to Mexico for 30 years and once we discovered this location we knew we would never find any place more beautiful than this. We love the people, the culture and of course the wonderful winter weather. We have spent the last three winters here at the beach. We are just now beginning to rent out our condo and travel more ourselves. We hope you enjoy this unique and beautiful place as much as we do.

Richard William Gehweiler purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard William Gehweiler chose La Manzanilla

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and unspoiled locations in all of Mexico. The bay itself is home to whales, dolphins, sea turtles and an abundance of fish and sea birds. The expansive white sand beach in front of the condo stretches 4 miles down to the quaint little fishing village of La Manzanilla where you will find numerous restaurants and grocery stores. There is a small store next to the resort that carries some basic necessities, however, since we are 4 miles from town, we do recommend that you have a rental car for your trip although taxis are available in the area.

What makes this condo unique

The condo sits at the mouth of an estuary that empties into the bay. So there is a terrific view of the beach and ocean as well as the opportunity to view the abundant bird life that the estuary draws. We walk every morning on the beach and generally see very few people, but do occasionally see whales and dolphin. Nature at its best.

Very nice stay, unit is nicely decorated, location is excellent and people couldn't be more friendly. The peacefulness of the area is welcoming, the weather fantastic, absolutely would recommend to anyone wishing to relax in style and enjoy the local culture of Mexico minus the hustle bustle chaos of a tourist destination.

The Condo is wonderful. Owner was easy to contact, very helpful, knowledgable and kind. Housekeeper went out of her way to accommodate us and was a pleasure to have around. Neighbors are kind, fun and generous. Beach is beautiful. The beach is perfect with boogie boarding waves that my 5 year old mastered. The pool at the restaurant is lovely and simple. Well worth eating a meal at the restaurant to use the pool. We could not have had a more perfect trip!

We had a great visit

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very spacious and very comfortable for four adults. You have a great ocean view but you do have a short walk to get beach access. The beach is awesome-great for small children-shelling and long, long beach walks.

The owners are great to work with-we only stayed for 4 days for golf at nearby El Tamarindo which is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world along side Pebble and the Teeth of the Dog. It has seven ocean holes.

We plan to return for a longer trip next year.

There is a fabulous restaurant Chantil Mare five minutes away-very reasonable-off the chart food directly on the ocean. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Mexico and we have many here in PV where we live most of the year.
