Cuyutlan is a small and friendly village that is known in the old times from her white gold, ( its a village where they collect and have been since 1800 sea salt , you can enjoy a tour at the museum of salt. and also on the other side of the village pretty close to this beautiful casa there is a turtle sanctuary ( tortugario) where you can be part of and learn about the wild life in our beautiful paradise. Manzanillo is 30 minutes away and Colima 45 to 50 minutes.
We started building this house in 2010 and finished in 2012 little by little adding and making her our place, i chose this area because of the tranquility and the beach, not much of a swimming beach but more of a fun in the waves when swell and currents are not strong but the amount of wildlife one can experience. the amazing sunsets and sunrises and a village that is small but friendly, and its a quick drive to either Manzanillo or Colima.
Magda purchased this house in 2012
This is my idea of a dream home and i made it happen love the open spaces a big garden and so so close to the beach.
Nice, clean large house with 3 air conditioned bedrooms to stretch out in. It does get hot in the afternoon but keeping the downstairs windows open and fan on allowed the air to flow through the house. The kitchen was well equipped with a good array of crockery and glassware. We took our small dog, a Cocker Spaniel, and the fenced yard was ideal for her to play in and provided secure off-road parking.
The beach can be reached across the quiet street (advise you take water shoes to cross the open lot) giving you miles of deserted black, volcanic sand in either direction. The waves can be high and the current strong so even though there were surf and wave boards available in the property we didn't try anything more than paddling. A short drive to the end of the road takes you to the turtle sanctuary where you can also walk through the mangroves and see the lagoon.
Reserving this property was easy, the owner responding to our questions very quickly. Check-in was simple and the person we collected the key from extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider staying here again.
This large, pretty Mexican style home is situated on a secure, well manicured, lovely lot about 4km south of the village of Cuyutlan. A vehicle is a must! Next door, to the south, is a home is being built and we could hear workers happily singing everyday, to the north is a workshop where a local craftsman works sporadically creating furniture. Behind the home is a wooded area full of birds and other animals, don't forget to bring a bird book and binoculars. Across the road through a weedy patch is the endless, black sand beach which offers surfing, boogie boarding opportunities, cool breezes when the main floor of the home was too hot, long romantic walks, and wildlife watching. Swimming was not recommended.
We spent a month in this home and it offered a safe and comfortable base from which to travel and see the local sites of Colima state. Over the month we travelled a lot. The locals recommend not travelling between dusk and dawn so there is a lot of down time in the evenings. Evenings for the first week were spent reading, playing cards and watching the one DVD series that was at the home. The home is not equipped with cable or internet. This afforded us an opportunity to get to know each other again. For the last three weeks house manager Ken, a most gracious host and guide, lent us an external drive to connect to the SMART TV.
My favorite part of the home was the deliciously cozy beds in the air-conditioned bedrooms where we could unwind at the end of a hot, hot day. The rest of the home is not air conditioned we used fans to circulate the air which at times could be oppressive even with all the sliding doors open.
The kitchen was large and well appointed with all the tools needed to cook for a large group. The rest of the home is spacious with lots of room and lovely, comfortable furniture.
Thank you Magda for opening your summer home to us. You were right about the expats! We welcomed their openness, expertise and their willingness to share. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool parties, evening dinners, dominoes, tours, restaurant recommendations, gringo nights, and medical assistance to name a few. Finally, you picked a wonderful house manager in Ken and housekeeper, Juanita, they made sure our stay was the best it could possibly be.
The house is lovely. There were 7 of us staying at this property. There is plenty of space for everyone, two living areas, three bedrooms, a large dining area, beautiful grounds. Cuyutlan is quiet and sleepy. We took day trips to nearby beaches and the mountains. The house is across the street from the beach, through a rough patch of scratchy underbrush that was difficult to walk through. The mosquitos were a bit more than we expected, although once we got DEET and some industrial insecticide we felt like we were no longer under siege. We had some trouble with the water heater, it worked intermittently, about half of the time we were there. But the manager was super friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a lovely place to spend New Year's with friends.
Not there fault but beach terrible
No hot water
No tv no batteries for control
bought them couldn't figure out how to use
Worst of all no a/c miserable heat
no wind from ocean
The house is gorgeous. Very well built and private yard. We were surprised that only the bedrooms were air conditioned. I should have read the review more carefully. The neighbor across the road has a wood workshop beside the house. Was very noisy for two mornings. Very open and nice furniture, however, due to heat and no air in main part of house, we were outside most of the time. An outdoor grill or exhaust fan over gas stove would have been better for cooking in heat. I would not recommend taking children due to the rope railings which are not very safe.
