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 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!

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.

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.

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.
