About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Just had a Cancellation ~~ a few February 2017 dates are Now Available!! Book your Winter Getaway Today!!

***Less than $650/week, $2200/mo for 2 people, even lower rates May through Oct***

Tired of the huge resort areas with their mulitude of vendors and timeshare pitches? Then Manzanillo on the Mexican Riviera is the place for your next vacation!

Not ready to pay resort prices? Our little place is comfortable and cute - located right on the beach named Playa Azul in the middle of Manzanillo Bay. It has two baths, two bedrooms (one king-size bed, and two double-size beds, one folding cot), fresh paint and an eclectic collection of Art, including regional Folk Art. The kitchen was recently remodeled, with tiles handmade locally. It is fully equipped with all the things people need to 'cook in': pots and pans, cooking utensils, cutting boards and good knives, microwave and blender, dishes and glasses. Bath towels and linens are provided. Housecleaning and linen laundry service are provided at the end of your week, but you can request mid-week service for an extra fee.

This second-floor unit has two private balconies, each with a view of the grounds and the ocean. It's in an eight-unit complex with a pool, sunning patio, palapa (cabana). Go through the gate in the seawall, and you are on the beach! Email for more photos and special late High Season and long term rates.

This location is GREAT - out the front door, is the main local bus line - or hail a taxi - with easy access to everything you want to do. It is a well kept secret, but this has always been one of the safest areas for tourists. Colima boasts the lowest crime rate in all of Mexico, due to high employment for the locals. For more information about this charming and safe area of Mexico, check the web for Manzanillo and Colima sites. Closest airport is Manzanillo International - ZLO. Puerto Vallarta PVR and Guadalajara GDL are each about 4 hours away by bus or car.

Our personal representative, Roberto, will check you in and out and answer all your questions. He speaks excellent English and some French. He can arrange fishing and scuba trips for you. He has snorkeling tours, tours to the plantation/ jungle, caves, hiking, Barra de Navidad or Colima City, to the black sand beach and turtle sanctuary, more! Because you will contract with him personally, he is able to give a discount from what travel agencies charge. He is the best tour guide we have found in all of Mexico!

Quotable rates are generally incorrect, as they don't take my discounts into account or the user fee for 3rd and 4th person. Please contact owner for an accurate quote for your party/ your dates. Also, I know many other owners in town, even if your dates are unavailable, please inquire, I know of a few units that have High Season '16 to '17 dates open at this time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We started travelling to Mexico in the 90's. We fell in love with the people, the culture, the ocean and decided right away that eventually we wanted to have little a getaway there.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Azul, Manzanillo, Col., Mexico:
We travelled to many of the usual resort areas, on both coasts of Mexico, but they were all too touristed for us. Too many venders and other hawkers between us and the local experience we wanted. In 2000, we ventured to Manzanillo, and knew immediately this was the authentic Mexico experience we were craving! A year later, we returned and started shopping, learning about the different neighborhoods around the 2 Bays. We decided we wanted to be On The Beach, but in one the local neighborhoods, with lots Mexican charm.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Drinking coffee in the morning or eating dinner on the balcony while watching the waves, and a wine salute to the sunset from the seawall are our favorite things to do here. This unit is large enough, with 2 bedrooms/ 2 baths, that we have shared it with many of our friends over the years. Having a car is nice for going on day trips, but this location has great access to local transportation. Little cafes, markets, stores are within 2 to 3 flat blocks. It is possible to walk 2 miles in either direction on the beach
