Andy or Jan Brown purchased this condo in 2012
We Live in Calgary and We Have Looked for Years for an Economical Location for Our Second Home and Our Criteria Were as Follows:
1. Had to be ON THE WATER with a Really Good USEABLE Beach!
2. Had to be Ground Floor Unit, nothing worse than wasting your time with Stairs and Elevators
3. Gated Community We Feel Totally Safe at Estrella Del Mar
4. Onsite Golf Course (Robert Trent Jones Designed, it is a Fabulous Track!)
5. Lots to do On and Off the Property
6. Under 5 Hours to Get There which from Calgary is Not an Issue
With Estrella Del Mar We got Everything We Wished for and Lots More!!
This was our second visit to Estrella del Mar and our first in this wonderfully appointed ground-floor unit. We spent two weeks over Christmas and New Year's with our two young children (ages 1 and 3) and found the unit to have all the desirable amenities we could ask for (washer, dryer, accessibility to pool and beach, North American and Mexican phones, wifi, family tv channels, proximity to airport, etc). The location of Estrella del Mar is perfect for those seeking a quiet getaway along the coast without being completely isolated. We enjoyed meeting other visitors and longer term residents (active retired couples to young families).
Some of the highlights of our stay included daily walks with the kids on the beach, watching the dolphins swim up and down the coast, discovering and touching starfish, releasing baby turtles in the wild at dusk, sharing in fireworks, weekly wine-time and a collective taco fiesta with other residents, hanging out in the pool with other young families...
We also want to take this opportunity to thank Andy and Jan for their thoughtfulness in every detail from the regular phone calls ahead of our trip to ensure we had all the information we required, to checking in during our stay making sure everything was going well, to providing a small yet very handy mini grocery for our arrival. With two small children, it meant we didn't have to forego the midday nap to rush out for a marathon grocery outing.
We hope to visit again and will definitely recommend this rental to others.
The condo is very nice! Excellent location!
It is a very private and quiet place for vacation!!
We recomend it very much!! We stayed there for a week, and we had a wonderful time!!
Excellent ground floor location with fantastic view of beach and ocean, gardens and swimming pool area. Miles and miles of deserted beach to walk with warm ocean water. Not recommended for swimming because of the rip tide, however, all very beautiful.
Ground floor unit has a large patio surrounded by beautiful flowers, on the corner of the beautifully landscaped foot path - very social spot to meet people, who appear to be all very friendly! Inside the apartment, it is tastefully decorated in true Mexican style and colours indicating great taste of the owners interior design, décor and furnishings.
All latest digital appliances in the kitchen and the unit was clean and well maintained.
The golf course was beautiful and challenging to say the least with beautiful views of the ocean on some holes. Since there was no supermarket available close by, transport was available to go into Mazatlan to shop for groceries. I would recommend this holiday home for anyone who wants to get away from the "rat race", who enjoys a non-commercial vacation, enjoying the ocean, playing golf, lapping up the sun rays, swimming in the pool and hanging out laughing and having fun with newly made friends! The hot tub is a great place to meet people! and walking the beach every day will keep you fit!!
I would love to go back again sooner than later!!!
Christmas in Calgary is wonderful but now that we are "empty nesters" and golfing has become more appealing than winter skiing - Estrella Del Mar Golf and Beach Resort was the perfect getaway!
We stayed for ten days and had exceptional weather throughout our stay. The unit was perfect for allowing two couples to comfortably enjoy our stay as the unit's design ensured privacy when desired. The master suite was roomy and led out to the main level private patio for the unit. It was great to enjoy the morning coffee with friends listening to the ocean waves and all the tweety birds going about their morning activities. The second bedroom had an adjoining washroom with a shower and this was great with two couple sharing the condo.
The open kitchen design with the large island was perfect for us to all enjoy our love of cooking. Eating local produce, fish and meats and enjoying fun drinks are always key to a great vacation. The open design allowed us to flow into the dining room and then later enjoy dessert and coffees in the comfort of the living room. "Night cap" drinks and relaxing conversations were perfect under the stars and finishing the day listening to the waves hit the shore. No ocean waves in Calgary, Alberta.
The golf course was well maintained and the staff very friendly and helpful. Walking the beach for miles along the ocean was invigorating and yet peaceful as there are not many people on this beautiful stretch of soft sand. It is a beach where the Mexican government incubates, hatches and releases green sea turtles.
We enjoyed our stay at Estrella Del Mar so much that we are looking forward to our ten day stay again this holiday season. We are hoping that this will become an annual winter getaway!
The property was excellent with respect to cleanliness, location and was accurately reflected in the rental listing appearance. The owner was extremely helpful and I would recommend this property and owner to all my golfing friends and acquaintances.
I would highly recomend this condo, it is steps to a magnificent beach and pools situated on the ground level. The outdoor patio looks right on to the pool and the ocean where you can watch the dolphins swim by. This unit is beautifully furnished and had every amenity I needed. The quality of the furnishings and the appliances are first class. You can take long walks on a pristine beach without meeting a soul. There is a turtle sanctuary which is a 10 minute walk down the beach, you can watch the baby turtles being released back into the ocean or watch the turtles come in to lay their eggs. The resort is perfect for everyone, kids will love the beach and pool, retirees will love the peaceful laid back atmosphere of the resort and couples will enjoy the spectacular golf course which is built around the resort and runs along the ocean. This resort looks exactly like the photos it was immaculate and I would highly recomend it to my friends and family. The location is ideal, ten minutes from the airport and a half hour drive into Mazatlan where there are wonderful shops and restaurants to explore. I highly recomend The Presido but make sure you make a reservation.
