Property description

Truly the view you came for. Enjoy your morning coffee as you gaze out over the Pacific Ocean where the cruise ships arrive and the oceangoing cargo ships depart, lounge throughout the day on the large deck, down by the pool or on the beach with shimmering waves in the background. Then while sipping your favorite refreshment, share the spectacular sunset over the Las Hadas peninsula from the balcony, as the lights of downtown Manzanillo fill the sky. Lull yourself to sleep with the sound of the waves splashing against the sea wall.

The Ocean is a part of your life while staying in our Manzanillo home and is viewed from almost every room.

This 3rd floor penthouse unit is a part of a small complex of only 14 units. The grounds, lawns and pools are meticulously maintained by the live-in managers. Most of the time, there are only a few owners in residence giving you the feel of having a private pool and deck. The complex has several palapas with tables and chairs by the ocean, lounge chairs galore, large beach umbrellas and a beachfront bar with a gas barbeque is available for your use.

Inside the condo you will find all the modern amenities to make your visit and holiday a success. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, dressers, ample closet space, wall safe and a large 3 piece bathroom. Direct sliding door access to the balcony. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a bunkbed, dressers, and large closet. A second large bathroom is right next door. The Living room with 2 couches, chairs and a 40 in flat screen TV, DVD player, Shaw Satellite TV ( Canadian and USA channels ) and a CD player.

The central dining area has a beautiful round glass and wicker dining set which easily seats up to 8. The sideboard holds glassware to meet all your refreshment needs. There are 2 walls of sliding glass affords unbelievable beach and ocean views.
The kitchen is very modern , sunny and also can view the ocean. All the cutlery, dinnerware, cooking utensils are included. Coffee pot, blender, toaster, microwave, 2 large fridges and propane stove and oven. There is plenty of cupboard space and a large adjoining storage room with washer and dryer .

The condo has central air conditioning, electric water cooler,various games and a library of paperbacks (honor system - book exchange).
PLUS: the condo is equipped with wireless hi -speed internet. Bring your laptop and you can even use it by the pool.
One of the greatest values of this condo is it's location. There is no need for a vehicle; as literally everything you will need, and want is a short walk away. Located on a paved street, a block off the main street, gives you access to everything in easy reach, without the traffic noise . Only a 3 minute walk to the largest food store, 5 minutes to Walmart, 8 - 10 minutes to the main mall, and there are 3 Casinos within walking distance. You have access to many restaurants, night clubs, shops, car rentals within minutes.

Plus when you wish to visit Santiago markets and churches it's a 8-10 minute bus ride for 5 pesos ( 50 cents) or a 5 minute taxi. (in 2014 this cost 40 pesos ( less than 4 dollars).

Although Manzanillo is definitely not a typical tourist-type town; there is a great choice of familiar establishments built to cater to the local Mexican citizens. Starbucks, KFC, Burger King, Office Max, Home Depot, Sam's Club ( mini Costco type store), Dairy Queen and Domino Pizza, to name a few. There are scuba rental and lesson shops, boat rentals, fishing charters, sightseeing and tour companies and enough to keep you busy for a very long time.

We have visited many of the Mexican beach towns; and to us none compare to Manzanillo. As written in one travel/ real estate editorial, 'Manzanillo feels like California 40 years ago'.

Car: Not Necessary

There may not be a better location in all of Manzanillo. Our condo is very centrally located with only a short walk to the main malls, dozens of restaurants, sports activities and sightseeing. As well if beach walking is your thing , try literally miles of almost deserted beaches right in front of the condo. For 4 dollars you can also take a taxi to historic downtown, explore the back streets full of small interesting shops, visit the iguana sanctuary and the main plaza where often there are musicians and dancers. In the other direction a 4 dollar cab ride will take you to the town of Santiago with great body surfing, a sunken ship to snorkel to and more shops and restaurants.

It is only 1 hour to the capital city of Colima and 3 hours to Guadalajara. Both these cities are worth the trip for museums, beautiful plazas, shopping and more.

We have also taken the back roads in land to small villages where you can find markets with fresh from the fields vegetables and fruits. Enjoy the quiet streets and see the laid back pace of small town Mexico. Just north of Manzanillo you can take day trips by car or bus to Barra de Navidad and Melaque for surfing, seafood restaurants and beautiful sand beaches. These two towns attract many Canadian and American snow birds for the constant temperatures and slow pace of life.

Manzanillo has escaped the tourist growth as seen in Puerto Vallarta and thus has a more relaxed and less crowded life. At the same time as a vibrant port city you can find a Walmart, Starbucks and many of the fast food restaurants if you find yourself in need of a 'fix' of back home.

As the city grows and prospers the amenities continue to grow. We have many new restaurants with cuisines from around the world, new tour groups, upgraded double lane highways, and 3 casinos. Under construction is a new mall for enhanced shopping. A vibrant city with a distinctive, busy economy allows those of us from NOB ( north of the border) to enjoy the amenities , beaches, sun and sand along side of the opportunity to have a window into real Mexico.

Manzanillo has been touted as the safest city in the safest state ( Colima) in Mexico. We walk everywhere with our children and grand children. Common sense travel habits are always important whereever you visit.

Personal insights:

We have snorkelled, scuba dived, gone deep sea fishing ( caught and released a sail fish) , travelled the backroads , visited Colima city, Guadalajara, Lake Chapala, Barra Be Navidad, La Manzanilla and dozens of quiet almost deserted , out of the way bays and beaches. Make sure you experience the many local dishes , eat Tacos from the Vendors, visit the Saturday Market, buy fresh fruit, fresh fish and vegtables every day.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a Canadian couple who feel in love with Mexico over 15 years ago. I am a Real Estate agent, still working 8-9 months of the year and MJ is a retired Travel Agent. We have 2 children and 2 grandkids who love to visit Papa and Nana in Manzanillo almost every Christmas. In fact the youngest grandson has only seen snow twice at Xmas, most of the time it's sunny Manzanillo for the holidays.

Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
My wife and I grew up on the prairies of Alberta in Western Canada. Albertans tend to vacation in Hawaii, California or Mexico. We started going to Mexico in 1998 and every year became more and more enchanted with the people, the culture, the history and the more laid back life style. In 2000 we discovered Manzanillo and were fortunate to meet many Canadian and American folks who live there full time. After sharing their life experiences and with our explorations we knew this was to be our destination for long term stays. In 2007 we contacted a real estate agent and spend quite a bit of time looking over all areas of the city. We chose this condo as it was a small complex of only 14 units and within walking distance to the main amenities. As well all the other owners are Mexican and about 90% of the time we find ourselves with the pool and beach area to ourselves . it is like a private house! When the other owners do come they welcome us into their festivities and we get to enjoy another culture as participants and not tourists.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This could be you on the ocean in Manzanillo. Constant 28 degree (85 F) weather, sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets. We just never have a bad day when we are in Manzanillo. Take Spanish lessons, spend countless hours exploring the back streets and small shops, join in to the many local festivals and celebrations. Manzanillo city and the State of Colima are well known as the SAFEST city and state in all of Mexico!! offers almost all the amenities of the tourist centres such as Puerto Vallarta or Cancun without the compromises. Traffic is more moderate, restaurants are very reasonable and without line ups. If you prefer not to banter with time share reps then Manzanillo is your kind of town. Cultural events abound and although many are directed at the local population and in Spanish they welcome visitors. The beaches go for miles and a surfside walk is the perfect way to start your day.
