Manzanillo condo description

***Great Spring dates available for under $600/week, still $1995/mo for 2 people, even lower rates May through Oct***

Tired of the huge resort areas with their mulitude of vendors and timeshare pitches? Not ready to pay those resort prices? Then Manzanillo on the Mexican Riviera is the place for your next vacation!!

At our little place is comfortable and cute - located right on the beach in the Playa Azul area in the middle of Manzanillo Bay. It has two baths, two bedrooms (one king-size bed, and two double-size beds, one folding cot), fresh paint and an eclectic collection of art, including regional folk art. The kitchen was recently remodeled, with tiles handmade locally. It is fully equipped with all the things people need to 'cook in': pots and pans, cooking utensils, cutting boards and good knives, microwave and blender, dishes and glasses. Bath towels and linens are provided. Housecleaning and linen laundry service are provided at the end of your week, but you can request mid-week service for an extra fee.

This second-floor unit has two private balconies, each with a view of the grounds and the ocean. It's in an eight-unit complex with a pool, sunning patio, palapa (cabana). Go through the gate in the seawall, and you are on the beach! Email for more photos and special late High Season and long term rates.

This location is GREAT - out the front door, is the main bus line - or hail a taxi - with easy access to everything you want to do. It is a well kept secret, but this has always been one of the safest areas for tourists. Colima boasts the lowest crime rate in all of Mexico, due to high employment for the locals. For more information about this charming and safe area of Mexico, check the web for Manzanillo and Colima sites. Closest airport is Manzanillo International - ZLO. Puerto Vallarta PVR and Guadalajara GDL are each about 4 hours away by bus or car.

Our personal representative, Roberto, will check you in and out and answer all your questions. He speaks excellent English and some French. He can arrange fishing and scuba trips for you. He has snorkeling tours, tours to the plantation/jungle, caves, hiking, Barra de Navidad or Colima City, to the black sand beach and turtle sanctuary, more!

                                This place is at a great location and is a lovely condo. The beach isn't great for swimming due to the surf action, but is great for walking for miles in either direction. I'd recommend this condo to anyone; it is well equiped and comfortable with great neighbours!

                                My husband and I enjoyed this condo a great deal. It was comfortable, had a well stocked kitchen, a lovely warm pool and satellite TV with Canadian and American channels; and, there are only eight units in the building. During the two weeks we were there, we had the pool to ourselves. The location was terrific for us as we love to be able to step out onto the street and catch a bus and do our touring of the city and shopping the cheap way. The beach in front of the condo isn't suitable for swimming because of the wave action, but it is great for long walks either way on the beach and it isn't far to calmer beaches to swim. It was terrific watching the shipping freighters coming and going out of the deep sea harbor. The owners are extremely personable and the manager in Manzanillo (Roberto) is a lovely man who gave us a quick tour of the immediate area as well as gave us tips about what there was to see and how to get there. He is a tour guide so if you're into that, he's your guy (not at all pushy) and speaks very good English! If we ever go to Manzanillo again, we'll be sure to rent this condo again! The price is very reasonable for what you get!

                                We stayed at Condomino Garzas Playa with our family of 5 in March 2011. This was a great location and a wonderful condo with plenty of room. The suite was clean, ready for us to enjoy and nicely appointed. The suite had everything we needed. Loved Dana's decor and she has some great Mexican cook books if your looking to take home a recipe or two. We really enjoyed the clean pool in the back yard as it helped regulate us to the warm temps. My wife and I loved sitting outside with our morning coffee and Pun Dolce (sweet buns) which were best bought fresh from Soriana's and having a beach pretty much to yourself. The beach is pretty quiet here which was great for us as we could relax with the kids without the typical solicitations in the busier tourist beach spots. Then we could head over to Miramar Beach in Bahia de Santiago to enjoy the sun and fun, fresh coco's, pina colada, cervesa and boogie boarding on the waves. The complex itself has a large locking front door so safety wasn't even a concern. There is a laundry just to the right across the street. Roberto met us perfectly on time and is a wonderful guy to ask any questions or directions. He offers some awesome tours so be sure to leave time and book him for a day. We had a vehicle and there was parking in front. Buses are easy to navigate but with a family I wanted a vehicle which made it very easy to check out many things. Burger King has free wi-fi. Right behind BK was a great taco stand that I liked. If you stay over a Saturday you must visit the flea market in Santiago, a short distance. We weren't impressed with the food at the flea market but did find a great little taco place across the street between the pharmacy and the photo shot. It turned into my son's favorite. So many places to eat and never enough time, I guess we'll just have to return. Dana made this an easy transaction for us by using PayPal which worked perfectly for us. Made our stay relaxing. Our Guadalajara reservation got mixed up and Dana helped get us into the condo a day early which was an immense help and relief. When your family is counting on you make a good choice, book here with confidence.

                                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, age 55+, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                                Hi Dana, Just back from staying at your condo in Manzanillo and really had a good time. The condo was clean and nice and we especially enjoy the view of the ocean. It was nice to walk out the back of the property onto the beach and not have many people there. The rent for the condo was a good value for what we received. As you know this was our 3rd stay and we will stay there again. Previous trips: Jan 2003, Jan 2005, Jan 2008. Next trip reserved for Jan 2011 Thank you, BC & DC

                                Dear Dana, Funky and WONDERFUL!! We just love your condo. We are the only ones here so it's our private beach club. Roberto was here when we arrived yesterday. This morning L and I caught the bus and went to Soriana for shopping. Our kids arrived this afternoon and they can't believe how nice it is. All the info you gave us has been so helpful. You forgot to tell us about the nice mellow music from the restaurant next door. Another plus. We are so lucky to be here. D & L

                                we have stayed playa garzas for several years and really love it. we always come in march as the weather is perfect - sun every day and pleasant temperatures. the location of the condo is ideal. the bus stops right at the front door and takes us to downtown manzanillo or to santiago for just 5 pesos. very convenient. the condo is very comfortable and has such a pretty view. everything is there for cooking, relaxing and enjoying the mexican culture.two good-sized bedrooms and two full baths, fully equipped kitchen.we see the bay from our balcony and can swim in the pool. most of the time we have the whole place to ourselves. we have enjoyed playa garzas and will continue to return every year.

                                Hi Dana, I went out of town as soon as I got back and just now have a chance to get back to you with how impressed we were with the condominium. The lay-out was PERFECT -- it was so comfortable with just the right space for the three of us, and listening to the waves crashing in was AWESOME. We had the rented car so we got around all over the place, to Colima and Comala a couple of times, up to Yerbabuena on the volcano, to Laguna Maria, to the turtle sanctuary, lots of touring around ... the weather was fantastic, Roberto was great, the food was outstanding, and we had many opportunities to practice our Spanish. We also appreciated the way you have done up the little brochures and sheets that give tips about the area, and we hit a great number of the restaurants on your recommended list -- including El Fogon on the first night, where we bought a CD being sold by the terrific singer in the restaurant (Javier). Also went to Don Andreas. Loved little Cameron Feliz. Thanks again for the opportunity to enjoy your adorable place!!! MP LP & CH

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: We started travelling to Mexico in the 90's. We fell in love with the people, the culture, the ocean and decided right away that eventually we wanted to have little a getaway there.

                              Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
                              We travelled to many of the usual resort areas, on both coasts of Mexico, but they were all too touristed for us. Too many venders and other hawkers between us and the local experience we wanted. In 2000, we ventured to Manzanillo, and knew immediately this was the authentic Mexico experience we were craving! A year later, we returned and started shopping, learning about the different neighborhoods around the 2 Bays. We decided we wanted to be On The Beach, but in one the local neighborhoods, with lots Mexican charm.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              Drinking coffee in the morning or eating dinner on the balcony while watching the waves, and saluting the sunset from the seawall are our favorite things to do here. This unit is big enough, with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, that we have shared it with many of our friends over the years. Having a car is nice for going on day trips, but this location has great access to local transportation. It is possible to walk 2 miles in either direction on the beach. Little cafes, markets are within 2 to 3 flat blocks.
