Centro Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths

Casa Sonatina del Mar- a picturesque four bedroom, 8,000 square foot oceanfront villa located on the bluffs in La Punta, Manzanillo- near the famous Hotel Las Hadas. This classic palapa home is a vacation haven for those who seek privacy and relaxation in a natural setting.

Wake to the sound of the surf on a secluded beach, take a dip in the pool, curl up on the huge sofa with a good book, go to the nearby private beach club for a day of fun in the surf and sun, play a quick game of tennis, or a leisurely round of golf at Las Hadas, fish or snorkel in the blue Pacific...This paradise can be your reality!

The layout of the house consists of a large open air palapa complete with a huge sofa, large dining room table, breakfast table, and bar that overlooks the private heated pool and ocean. There are numerous patios and garden walkways that connect the large palapa to the other structures on the property.

We feel this house is special and that guests who stay here will enjoy their beautiful surroundings. If guests want “screen time,” they should bring their own portable DVD player or laptop.

When you arrive at Casa Sonatina you will be welcomed with open arms. The staff is there to pamper you during your entire stay. Start off your vacation with a customary margarita at sunset as you take in the amazing view by your private infinity pool.

The spacious Deluxe Suite is located just off of the main palapa living area. It overlooks the pool and has a beautiful panoramic ocean view. The interior is expansive and includes 2 sitting areas, large walk-in closet, large bathroom with double sinks, a separate toilet, and shower/tub areas. The Deluxe Suite comfortably sleeps 2 adults.

The Beachside Bungalow comfortably sleeps 2 adults.

Fabulous stay at Casa Sonatina

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 scientists staying at Casa Sonatina as we prepared for a research cruise on the RV Atlantis in Manzanillo. The house, accommodations, staff, views are all spectacular. The staff was exceptional both in terms of cleanliness and making us feel at home. The food was delicious, superb, abundant and again, the staff was truly attentive and wonderful in meeting our varied dietary requests and we could not have had a more wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and the views are incredibly beautiful. The pool is terrific - great views of the ocean and very clean and wonderful temperature to balance the heat of the air here in the tropics. I would not hesitate to recommend this residence - it was a memorable and excellent stay and the lodging and food costs were a great value. Dr. Dan Fornari - Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Rustic luxury: Simple beds/baths, but huge & beautiful outdoor living area + the best view ever!

  • 4 of 5

I think rustic luxury is an apt description of this property. If you go in with the right expectations, this could be your best vacation ever.

The photos don't lie about the infinity pool and view. It really was incredible! The pool water was a nice temperature. The beach chairs were comfortable and well maintained. Etc.

I also loved the outdoor living area. It was huge with tons of seating and tasteful, traditional Mexican decor. The area was covered by tall palapas. Colorful tiles lined the stairs. Truly beautiful!

The bedrooms and bathrooms were more simple and dated but adequate when it wasn't too hot. The beachside suite (down a long path with some stairs, quite far from the main house) didn't have A/C when we were there, and several of the overhead fans and one A/C unit in the home weren't functioning. Even in the bedrooms with functional A/C units and fans, the shutter windows and palapa roofs aren't perfectly sealed, so air did escape. As a result it was very hot and difficult to sleep on our hottest night--admittedly probably the hottest part of the year. However, on our less temperate night, ocean breezes plus the A/C and fans made it lovely.

Some of the beds had mosquito nets, but I'd recommend bringing bug spray and maybe even citronella candles too. Expect mosquitos and other bugs, even inside. The housekeeper does a great job, but this is an older, traditional home.

Steep cement stairs with no railing take you to a rocky beach--probably not somewhere you'd want to swim, at least not with kids. We went to look but didn't spend time there. We didn't visit the neighborhood's private beach but did drive a few minutes to the Las Hadas resort (day passes were about $35/person including drinks/beverages).

We loved the idea of a private chef/house manager, and he did prepare a phenomenal ceviche! However, service wasn't quite what we'd hoped. For example, he scoffed when we asked for meals earlier than is customary in Mexico. Even after changing times at his request, meals arrived quite a bit later than agreed upon which was a little tricky since we were traveling with young children used to routines. Also, one evening we had a situation that we could have used help with but didn't know how to find or reach him. This certainly didn't ruin our trip -- it just wasn't the pampering we expected.

All in all, we had a great stay at this beautiful, traditional Mexican home with one of the best views I've ever seen. I'd absolutely return!

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Still basking in the afterglow of the best family vacation ever! Casa Sontina was better than I could have wished for..the perfect place for our family to join together for quality time. We never left the grounds except for early morning and after dinner walks around La Punta, that was just to ward off any extra pounds put on by the fabulous meals prepared by the chefs! The layout of Casa Sonatina was perfect, allowing privacy when wanted, lots of sitting areas to meander to and from, fabulous ocean view, unbelievable sunsets, quiet, lovely infinity pool, peaceful, the words cannot say enough! It was beyond perfect! The organizing and booking with Megan was easy and helpful, the service staff at Casa Sonatina was Exceptional, the layout of the accommodations were perfect for our needs. The property was clean, yes, needing some repairs here and there, some fans did not work, one of the rooms toilets was not working properly but par for the course of an older place and general wear and tear...and the mosquitoes ( bring repellent!) those issues were minor and no need to sweat the little stuff! I have nothing but praise and gratefulness for the exceptional service, staff and accommodation at Casa Sonatina! We will be back!!! Thank you Thank you!

The house was beautiful, incredible views

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing and Hugo was a first class helper of everything from meals to making drinks to arranging fishing to fixing things. He made the trip special.

My wife left her purse behind and the staff mailed it home no problems.

We had parents and 5 children and the stat was entirely memorable. The gated community was world class with a picturesque beach club.

All around A plus.

Stunning Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited Casa Sonatina for a week in mid-February--there were nine adults in our group. To be honest, we were worried that the house/property wouldn't be as gorgeous as the pictures make it seem, but we were wrong! From the moment you walk through the door, you will be stunned by the beautiful vista.

Casa Sonatina is an idyllic getaway for many reasons--the gorgeous views, the private pool, the huge living spaces, and the wonderful meals, to name a few. Hugo is a magnificent chef and no matter what you order, it will be delicious (we recommend that you ask for ceviche!). We spent our days reading and relaxing by the pool (with a few outings peppered in) and spent our evenings--after a fantastic dinner thanks to Hugo--playing games and chatting. It was such a relaxing and inviting place, we didn't really want to leave the property during our stay. And we DEFINITELY didn't want to leave when our stay was over!

Every evening, you will be treated to the most alluring sunset. Every morning, you will awake to find fresh, delicious coffee waiting for you. We joked that it was almost like we were at a fantastic summer camp--we got to swim and play all day, with breaks for meals when we were called to the table to eat. Across the board, everyone was in agreement that this vacation spot rose above all expectations.

To be fair, I would not suggest this property to anyone who needs everything to be brand-new and absolutely without flaw. The property is gorgeous, but well-loved, and some details are perhaps not as functional as they once were, such as the occasional outlet or light switch. In addition, it is highly recommended that you bring some bug spray, as you'll essentially be outside all the time at Casa Sonatina--an architectural design element that adds to its charm and stunning views.

To anyone who wants to enjoy the sun, the sea, some relaxation, a gorgeous house and fantastic food, we cannot recommend Casa Sonatina vehemently enough. As a group of public school teachers, we are not accustomed to such luxury and attention, but we could find a way to get used to it!
