About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom 1.5 Baths

The brand new Casita that now sits on top of the Santiago hills community now features a 500sqft PALAPA on a 1100sqft Terrace/Deck. This area is located right next to the pool on the 2nd floor of the villa, there is no other property on this hill that features the exquisite views you will indulge in day or night while dining or sipping on your favorite drink.

All this aside from its excellent ocean views from the living room-dinning room and bedroom.

The master bathroom has an overhead shower and beautiful Cream Color Cantera Stone wash basin. The room also has two very spacious closets.The entire house has Parota Wood finishes through out its kitchen, windows, cabinets, closets etc.

Keywords: Not an apartment and not a condo, more like a house within a 4 home complex, a villa (in hotel terms)

About The Owner

Manzanillo Lovers.

We have been to every beach in Mexico, and Manzanillo wins because of its pueblo feel, affordability, privacy, and its not a big PARTY TOWN, making it very nice and quiet, exactly what we want when we retire.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2011

Why The Owner chose Manzanillo

We actually built the whole complex from scratch, it was an empty piece of land and now its a 4 house complex. Its all brand new construction in 2008 & 2009, and now the new property being featured was completed in 2011.

The benefits we see its that its a very small town, with no major international tourism keeping things pretty quiet and relaxed. Being only a couple of hours away from Los Angeles direct flight from LAX to ZLO and also the house is located just 20 min away from the airport, pretty much at the very beginning of the town. The house is located on a hill very secluded from the noise and traffic and everyone else, so its quite private.

Our families have been coming to this town to vacation since the 60's so we decided to make it our second home.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect weather, amazing views, its cooler than most properties at sea level since we are on a hill.

We can just walk down the hill to the beach with our dog; also to the convenience market just below the hill we could buy basic necessities as well as beer/ wine.

We recommend renting cars if you have trouble walking or getting around hills.

We do offer FREE AIRPORT PICKUP (must request in advance)

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was a fun trip - taking our family of five to Mexico for the first time. We all enjoyed the pool, the beautiful views from the palapa (amazing hammocks)and clean accommodations. The villa was comfortable and we were able to fit all of us with the help of Linda providing extra beds. Having a few more kitchen items like silverware would have been helpful. The blender was awesome - smoothies in the morning, blended cocktails in the afternoon. The walk up the hill is very steep but after a few times you really get the hang of it and was not a problem. We spent lots of time at The Oasis and at the Hostal Olas Altas along with various other restaurants in town. Loved the dogs running around and even a few iguanas crossing the road! Linda was a huge help with directions, advice and she let us rent her car for a day trip to Barra de Navidad. The road side fruit stands were really cool - don't pass them up! She also cooked an outstanding meal for us. The kids played in the waves for hours everyday, the beach was beautiful and overall just had an amazing family time together.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and loved the views from the palapa! The pool was great as well! We did however feel somewhat isolated, and the hill leading to the place was so extremely steep that although we could make it down on foot, we were forced to take a cab to get back up.

The living and dining areas were very comfortable with many windows and a wonderful view. The bedroom had a/c, which is a plus with the high humidity.

We had the convenience of many kitchen appliances, which included a microwave, 6 burner stove with oven, a blender, and a toaster. A larger variety of cooking utensils such as pots, bowls and oven ware would have been helpful, but Linda was very attentive and provided these as well as extra towels and a can opener when needed.

It was nice to be able to call family in Canada even though we had to ask Linda for the cordless phone in order to do this.

We were able to take advantage of and enjoy large drinks and beautiful sunsets at the Hostal Olas Atlas down the hill. The Saturday market which was within walking distance had an excellent assortment of everything including veggies. Downtown is approx a 30-40 minute bus ride from the main street, and the beach, where it was possible to rent chairs and umbrellas, is close by.

Amazing! Loved it, Will go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!!! We had the best time during our stay at Sean's place!!! We seriously didn't want to leave. Hermelinda, our host at the condo, was super helpful (not to mention a very cool lady). She gave us great tips for the best beaches, markets, restaurants and wine store. Leave your travel book at home. The condo itself was spacious and very comfortable. The best part though was the view of the ocean and beaches. We would start our mornings and end our evenings with a glass of wine from the deck watching the sunset and then go for an evening swim. The beach is a hop and a skip from the top of the hill and just listen to Hermelinda where to go. Manzanillo beaches were great and definitely are already planning to go back. I would absolutely stay at Sean's place again!!!

Fantastico & Unico!!!

  • 5 of 5

Espectacular vista!! Atención de primera. La pasamos increible. Todo esta super limpio. Por la noche se escucha el mar y es super relajante. Durante el dia ni se necesita el AC ya que la brisa del mar entra por las ventanas de enfrente y por la noche la brisa de las montañas refresca la unidad. La mejor vista de Santiago desde la Palapa y alberca con vista al mar. Regresaremos pronto!
