La Manzanilla villa description

Villa Tortuga!

Newly available as a two bedroom rental, Villa Tortuga encompasses the main building in a private villa complex. Guests will enjoy everything that the villa has to offer, amazing views over La Manzanilla and the Bay of Tenacatita, private terraced pool, large palapa, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful living area and garden, and two huge guestrooms. Our three bedroom guestroom building, which expands the villa to a 5 bedroom rental (Casa Golondrinas) will remain closed during rentals for two bedrooms. Have the best for less!

Our custom built Villa completed in 2008 sits on the bluff of a hill over looking the beautiful bay of Tenacatita and is in the town of La Manzanilla. The villa has a brand new beautiful access road and gated steps down to the town from the pool area, making La Manzanilla shops, cafes, restaurants and the local beach a five minute stroll away.

The villa has a total of two bedrooms. There is one huge master suite with walk in closets and separate master bath. This master suite has a convertible full size sofa which unfolds to a full size mattress bed on floor. There is also a huge guest bedroom on the lower level, which has a king size bed, plus two additional twin size beds, currently arranged as daybed/sofas. There is another full bathroom next to the large guest bedroom downstairs.

There is a living room with an entertainment area next to the full kitchen. The kitchen opens to an outdoor thatched palapa area that looks over the private swimming pool. The villa also has a shaded outdoor dining area. There is a large lawn area and a manicured garden with a large charcoal grill that looks out over the ocean and has an unobstructed view of the sunsets. There is a private entrance to the villa with one car off street parking.

The fishing village of La Manzanilla has all the amenities you will require including several shops, bars and restaurants. La Manzanilla has a long, curving, gently sloping beach with gentle surf extending for about a mile. Good swimming, diving. Numerous palapa restaurants line the beach.

Today the village caters to the adventuresome modern day explorer who can access the area via Hwy 200 either from Manzanillo, a major resort town and Navy port to the south or from Puerto Vallarta, another resort town to the north. The village of La Manzanilla offers the outdoor enthusiast a cornucopia of options while on vacation.

You can hire a local fisherman to go after Dorado, Sailfish, Tuna, and many other varieties of fish that frequent the bay. Wildlife observation is popular for Spotted Porpoises, Whales, Brown Pelicans, Cormorants, Brown-footed Boobies, Frigates, and many more varieties of animals.

Next to the village is a Mexican Federal Ecological Zone ( a high tide mangrove lagoon), home to Egrets, Heron, King Fishers, Ibises, Anhingas, and Caimans (part of the crocodilian genus) plus several miles of shrouded waterways accessible with a local boat guide or on your own in a kayak. Playa La Manzanilla is a mellow, user friendly beach with small surf, excellent sand, and several mom & pop sand-floored palapa restaurants offering the catch of the day and a front row view of the Bay of Tenacatita.

The town is so small that for the most part you can get around on foot. There are taxis available at the bus station on Calle Gómez Farías and at the central plaza in Melaque. Cars may be rented at the Manzanillo airport.
