Manzanillo villa description

Casa Shillington has been in our family for 30 years and has been beautifully maintained. The main floor consists of an attractive entryway with large skylight, a sitting area and dining room, a spacious sunken living room, a powder room, and a bright kitchen -- all of which open onto the pretty patio (with an outdoor dining area) which surrounds our private solar-heated swimming pool. The second floor has 3 bedrooms (one king, two twin bedded rooms), each with their own vanity area, toilet, and bath, and large walk in closets. Each bedroom has its own pretty and private balcony with patio chairs and cocktail tables. On the second floor is also a large bamboo-covered deck with another dining area and views to the ocean and the mountains behind Miramar. This is where we sit to enjoy spectacular sunsets. The yard is full of bougavilla and palm trees and bird feeders. From the back yard is a little private entryway to one of the 'green belts' of Club Santiago.
By far, the greatest amenity of the Casa is Alejandra, our super maid! She works 9 to 3 every day except Sunday. She makes the beds, cleans the house and patio daily, arranges fresh vases of flowers, does your wash, and is happy to fix you a grand breakfast, lunch, or brunch, and tasties for the cocktail hour around the pool. With advance notice and a little extra pay, she can organize and serve a yummy Mexican dinner for you and friends. Ale's family has a cute local restaurant in nearby Naranjo.
Casa Shillington is located in Club Santiago, a complex of private homes, condominiums, restaurants, and a golf course. The lovely sandy beach fronting the Club is almost three miles long. Our front door is less than 70 yards from the beach, across a quiet dead end cobblestone street that serves only eight private homes, or one can walk a very short distance down the shaded 'green belt' on a private pedestrian path to the beach. This is perfect for barefeet children! The green belt is also softly lighted during evening hours should one wish to stroll to the Beach Club or Oasis Club for dinner.
The long sandy beach is great for walking, running, bird and people watching, with warm, clear waters for swimming and surfing. There is a golf course in the Club, with other fantastic golf courses nearby at Las Hadas and Isla de Navidad. Fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and wind surfing are easily available. Mountain biking in the surrounding hills is popular and challenging.
The restaurants in the area range from sweet & funky to magnificent. We have a list of our favorite places, from the locals' cantina to elegant seaside or cliff top dining.
Our family thinks Santiago is one of the nicest places in Mexico. The locals are friendly and not too inundated by tourists. Our children and now our grandchildren love the pool, the beach, the green belt, and Alejandra. The weather is usually perfect, and the house is spacious and comfortable. Great place for couples, families, and/or friends.
Maximum -- 6 People, Including Children (1 king size bed, 4 twin beds)
