Manzanillo villa description

From the gated entry to the cobblestone drive, around the bend awaits the perfect blend of Mexican architecture and contemporary decor in a stunning quad level 9,000 sq. foot open-air villa.

Perched high upon a cliff, this magnificent beauty opens to a luxurious fountain and traverses down the hillside, through lush tropical flora, and ends at a lower palapa just above the crashing waves of Santiago Bay.

This well appointed home contains furnishings and amenities that you would expect of a luxury vacation villa.

Just beyond the entry, there is a private office with separate 1/2 bath and elevator which accesses the three levels of the main home.

The grand master suite, 'Bird of Paradise' is completely private on the second level with expansive views surrounded by glass doors and a wrap around terrace and balcony complete with a fountain and lounge furniture.

You will enjoy magnificent sunsets from this balcony. The room is quite large and is well appointed with a king bed with a grand white leather headboard and matching ottoman, satellite TV with additional seating area, two ceiling fans, I-pod docking station, and day bed that is perfect for TV viewing or allows a child separate en-suite sleeping arrangements.

There is a very spacious master bath with granite countertops and double sinks, large walk-in closet, separate toilet/bidet room, and a large double shower with exquisite glass views of La Audencia Beach.

The first guest suite in the main house, 'Mango Fruta', can sleep 2-4 people in two double beds with exquisite striped fabric headboards. There is a large walk-in closet, small sitting area, ceiling fan, satellite TV, I-pod station, and a large furnished balcony with expansive bay views and a grand Mango tree within arm's reach!

This suite has an attached private bath with granite countertop and large walk-in shower.

The attached private bath is complete with granite countertops, and a large combo shower/Jacuzzi waterfall tub. The balcony is very spacious and furnished with great views of Santiago Bay and is surrounded by lush Hibiscus hedges and provides a walk way to the pool area.

There is a separate apartment suite, 'La Casita', that is adjacent to the main stairwell, but is completely private with an additional private entrance from the street level. It contains a living area, with satellite TV, kitchenette with cook top and mini fridge, and breakfast bar with seating for three. The bedroom houses a king bed, I-pod station, ceiling fan, closet, and small bathroom with shower.

This home contains an expansive amount of original art with striking canvases. The living and dining area have four tri-fold glass doors with unobstructed views of the pool and large palapa overlooking Santiago Bay, and can be opened completely for the open-air feel that you expect in a Mexican villa.

Air conditioning is also available in all living spaces if needed. There is an additional satellite TV in this space and the dining table seats eight with additional seating for four at the breakfast bar.

The focal point of the entire home rests beneath the large furnished palapa that can seat 12-16 for outdoor dining. It is equipped with comfortable lounge furniture and tables, outdoor beverage cooler, ceiling fan, and Bose speakers for the stereo system with a generous CD collection.

Adjacent to the palapa is a large, heated, infinity edge pool with swim up bar and four luxurious chaise loungers. The seventh bathroom is located just steps below the palapa and is very spacious and complete with a changing room and shower.

Take a stroll down the lighted stairway to find a completely private honeymoon cottage, 'Papaya Verde', that rests below the pool area.

It contains an entry with lighted art niche, walk-in closet, and huge bathroom with beautiful bay views from the Jacuzzi waterfall tub. There is a separate large shower with private room for toilet, bidet.

This suite comes with a king size bed, I-pod station, satellite TV, and mini fridge. The suite is adorned with a walk-out balcony, as well as, an additional large furnished balcony.

If you leave the cottage and continue the stroll on the lighted stairway down the hillside, you will arrive at a beautiful built in lounge rest area complete with cocktail table for sunset views.

Just below this area is the second palapa situated on the rocky cliff just above the water. Enjoy the two chaise loungers or hammock as you hear the crashing waves against the rocks and view the scurrying of many crabs and abundant ocean life. There is fishing access off the rocks from this lower palapa for the adventuresome type.

                                    We brought together our extended family and loved our time at Casa Dos Palapas. The heated pool with shelf was perfect for the kids while we could sit back under the Palapa and enjoy the 270 degree views with a cerveza in hand. The private beach club was a very short walk (5min) and the staff was fantastic. Look forward to returning soon! Thanks Nelly for all of your help in taking care of all the details and coordination of a wonderful Holiday.

                                    My husband and I just returned from the most fabulous vacation we have ever had! We traveled with friends for the week for fishing and relaxation. The house, the views, the staff....INCREDIBLE! Hecor and his wife, Modesta (Modi), could not have been more accomodating during our stay. They made us feel so welcome and taken care of....we didn't want to leave them! The food was delicious and Hector delivered on the fact that he could make anything, and it would be the best ever! We can't wait to return!

                                    We just returned from a week in paradise with a group of 8 friends (1/8/12 -1/14/12). This place is simply amazing the property is clean and safe. We chose to hire a driver, Arturo, who picked us up from the airport and drove us to all of our destinations. The staff was wonderful! Hector is an amazing chef who's food would rival any 5 star resort. Modesta, Patty and Hector Jr. provided the best care to our group. I would recommend this house to everyone. It is a relaxing oasis and you can leave all your cares behind. It was very difficult to leave and return back to reality. Thanks once again to Aurtro, Hector, Modesta, Hector Jr., and Patty you made our stay fantasic and we truly apperciate your exceptional level of care.

                                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                                    We just returned from a family vacation (12-25 thru 1-1) with our two children (ages 2 and 5) and our extended family. This was one of the best vacations ever. From the moment we arrived form the States, everything was exceptional. We were met at the airport by Cesar, who took us to the home. His English was perfect. The room we stayed in--The Casita Suite--worked well for our mini-family of 4. The staff--Hector, Modesta, and Patty--could not have been more attentive or welcoming. Hector is fantastic chef--his meals were healthy, bountiful and beautiful to look at it. La Punta is a great community. We played tennis everyday and the tennis pro, Salvator is as good, if not better, than any pro at an US tennis resort.

                                    Our party was at Casa Dos Palapas in January of 2010. I have been remiss in not posting a review. The house is amazing, clean, well furnished and in a beautiful location. The staff had drinks on our arrival and each evening made margaritas.. the food was 5 star quality and the 8 of us each had a great bedroom and bath and were royally taken care of. You will not be disappointed and this villa and the people who attend to you are first class.

                                    "Myself and 15 of my girlfriends had the pleasure and wonderful opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful places in Mexico-"Manzanillo", June 2010. Cas Dos Palapas was an oasis of pure delight and satisfaction. The security and area of the home made us feel safe at all times, absolutely no worries at all. From our amazing drivers, Daniel, Roberto and Alejandro to the most amazing house staff one could ever ask for(Hector and his beautiful family) made this trip a memory that will last forever. Our every need was met and more. The food, we can't talk enough about our eating experience. They delighted us with everything on the menu we ordered and more. It was hard to go back to the real life-haha. The home sets above the ocean with the infinity pool, that we used to it's fullest extent. The Palapas eating/gathering area was perfect and we even used as a dance floor. Looking out at the sunsets each night, magical. Our drivers took us into town for shopping and authentic restaurants that really showed us the culture of Manzanillo. We took a fishing/boating trip, and they took very good care of us as well. Honestly, my girlfriends and I have traveled to many places and this tops it for sure. The house, the food, the beauty is something everyone should experience. Hector and his family truly were there to take care of us and cannot thank them enough. We are already planning our return trip and Casa Dos Palapas will be our only destination in Manzanillo. Thank you for allowing us to experience this beautiful place and families of Manzanillo."

                                    Hi Nelly: We are home from our 10 days at Casa Dos Palapas and wanted to let you know that the house was out of this world, Hector, Modi and family were wonderful and the setting was beautiful. We were all quite impressed with the peacefullness of Manzanillo and felt it was a well kept secret. The presentation of the meals was outstanding and enjoyed under the main palapa...what more can I say, Thank you.
