The Casa’s main residence on the 2nd level exhibits a traditional Mexican red-brick domed ceiling, with an open-floor plan kitchen, spacious living room, bathroom, and a master bedroom, all open to a veranda with wrap around views of jungle, ocean, & sunsets, while providing all of the modern amenities of home, if needed, but not required.

Neglected Property

  • 2 of 5

The property has lots of potential, but unfortunately is neglected. Upon arrival two of us spent 4 hours cleaning up the property to make it acceptable for our guests. The grounds had to be swept as leaves piled up everywhere (filled 2 garbage cans). Trees and plants need care. We had to landscape the entry to the building by pulling out dead foliage so it looked somewhat presentable. Outdoor tables and chairs had to be washed and tablecloths turned over as dirty. Blinds full of dust and had to be cleaned. Indoors, the fridge and freezer were very dirty and stunk of fish, so I had to clean the unit totally. Counters had to be cleaned off. Most of the dishes we had to wash first before using as they were full of dust. Dust basically covered all the decorations within the space and haven't been cleaned for a long time. The bedroom in the main area (upstairs) has no door, so there is no privacy. The bathroom upstairs has a glass painted door but you can see through it, so we had to leave a sheet on the door for those using the bathroom for privacy. The water was unpredictable as it ran out a few times. It appears a hose is used from the adjacent villa to supply water to this villa. Since there is no air conditioning (common in Mexico) there are fans, but it is very hot in the evening to try to sleep. Downstairs, in the bedroom with it's own bathroom, the water was always cold in the shower. In the Jungle Room there is no ceiling fan only floor fans, so very hot. This bedroom opens into the Ocean Room, so there is no privacy between the rooms, as guests in the Jungle Room have to walk into the Ocean Room to access the bathroom. In this shared bathroom, in the shower, one of the guests got zapped with electricity from both the cold and water taps. This shouldn't be happening. The keys to the villa are very rusty and it is very hard to open the doors. The door to the Jungle Room between the Ocean Room got jammed and the key would not work at all to open it. The pool needed more water, did not look inviting, was concerned about cleanliness and none of our guests used it. The fountains on the property have no water and what is presented in the photo on the VRBO site is not what you will find here. I was told that the villa was all ready for our arrival but it was not. 4 days into our stay a cleaning lady came, wonderful woman, but it was too late.

Casa Angelos Locos suited us very well

  • 4 of 5

Casa Angelos Locos suited us very well as we welcomed family and friends over the 2 months we were here.

It is an older home with very nice greenery all around and a lovely view over the Tenacatita Bay both from the casita and the garden. The location is a lot more quiet than many homes closer to the beach and yet only a short walk down the hill to the grocery store, laundry lady , pollo asado and the beach. The village is very charming and has many good and reasonable places to eat ( and drink!). A local bus takes you a few times a day to Melaque where there is a bank machine and a larger variety of retail stores etc. The lagoon with his prehistoric size crocodiles is a must see for young and old. We were well served by the very friendly cleaning lady and maintenance staff. The beach is certainly the best in the area with hard sand and clear warm water. No steep drop-off like on many beaches around there. on many days the waves were big enough to body surf. We would consider renting this place again and/or recommend it to others.There are many much more fancy and modern homes in La Manzanilla available, but we were happy there.
