Property description

We offer you a home like no other at Villas De Menorca. We hope that you will take a moment to view the photos and watch the video about our home and surrounding areas.

Accommodation:
ONE Cobblestone block to the very best beach in Manzanillo
1400 sq. ft (130 sq. mtrs) 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with 4 balconies equalling 550 sq. ft 51 mtrs. There are two great advantages of being on the fourth floor, privacy and an amazing breeze running through our home. There are 3 flights of stairs.
We are much bigger than most units at Villas de Menorca. 2 large bedrooms each with a king size bed, sleeping mats and a covered balcony make for a third sleeping area.

Location:
Manzanillo, Mexican Riviera between Puerta Vallerta and Acapulco.
We are in an upscale gated community developed in the 1960's called Club Santiago. We are located in Bahia Santiago on the far North end of the bay.

Weather:
The weather is in the low 80’s in the day and a delightful mid 70’s at night. Ocean temperature around 83 degrees. Fabulous ocean visibility.

Car: Not Necessary

We usually spend most of our time in Club Santiago and Santiago. We get as far South as Salagua but rarely make it to Manzanillo. A day trip to Colima and Colama is a nice excursion. There is local surf and Pascuales (expert surfers only!) is about 1-1.5 hour away and people carpool there.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Here are the owners on the left and our dear friend Irma. She grew up in Manzanillo and we vacationed there with her and her husband. They are very good friends of ours from Santa Barbara. Without them we would have never found Manzanillo. Part of the motivation of buying there was I am trying to become fluent in Spanish. Manzanillo is a wonderful place to practice Spanish. The locals are so kind and helpful. I feel so a part of a small community. I keep saying Manzanillo but we really are in another area Santiago, although connected, is very far different. I share our home because we enjoy sharing and it is expensive to own a second home! We will do all we can to direct you to a wonderful time in our second home.

Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
It was the stunning beach that made up our minds. We really liked being up in the trees where the breeze is strong. For us either it was ocean front or having a great breeze and an easy walk to the beach. We could have bought ocean front, but too far away from a city, so Club Santiago and Villas de Menorca was a great choice for us. If you can afford ocean front, do it, otherwise we are a fantastic option for ocean and quiet lovers.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When we are there we like to wake up early, put coffee in thermal cups and head down to the beach for the sunrise. Since we closed escrow April 2008 each of the three trips we have worked our butts off creating the home that you see, I even worked hard at getting the pictures you see! We went shopping in Tlagapaque and Tonala for all the pretty traditional things in our place. So the morning coffee at the beach was an important part of our day. Then to close each work day out at sunset we would take a shot of tequila down and swim in the ocean until dark. Sunset on the Pacific with a fine Mexican Tequila kissing my beloved...doesn't get much better...except walking home in my bathing suite and being comfortable in just a sarong.
