About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Enjoy the ocean in our 2-bedroom beachfront casita that offers spectacular ocean views and authentic Mexican furnishings and construction. Besides being a private home (not condo), what sets this home apart is a prime location in the middle of Santiago Bay and the rustic charm of palapa living. In addition to the main casita, a second 20’ x 20’ open-air palapa located next to the sea wall offers a dining area and simple outdoor kitchen with sink and gas grill. Attached to this outdoor palapa is the bathroom with shower. The simple but clean casita has 2 bedrooms, a dining/kitchenette area, and a small living room area. Authentic “rustico” furniture and Mexican dishes, glassware, and decorations add to your experience. Appliances and cookware are all newly purchased. AC, high speed Internet connection, safe, and two additional twin size mattresses are provided as well.
Location: Situated on a gently sloping sandy beach, children and adults will enjoy safe swimming, body boarding, stunning sunsets, and few foreign tourists. The 3 mile long beach is also perfect for walks, playing in the surf, or watching fishermen in pangas lay their nets. At times dolphins and whales are visible. The Mexican community of Santiago is two blocks away. Here you can explore a traditional market with fresh produce and seafood; you can also board inexpensive taxis or buses to various sites including two large nearby “American style” grocery stores.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The town of Manzanillo (pop. 100,000) is located between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Manzanillo, with warm and wonderful people, still holds traditional Mexican flavor and is considered one of the safest cities in Mexico. Santiago is in the northern quiet end of Manzanillo, close to many great seaside restaurants and local taco stands. World-class fishing and highly rated golf courses are nearby. A short 15 minute drive puts you in Manzanillo Centro with its great shopping, market, and local life.
Direct flights are available to Manzanillo (ZLO) from most major cities in the US and Canada. Our casita is located 25 miles south of the airport. At times, less expensive flights are available to Puerto Vallarta or Guadalajara.
Other Activities: ATV use, banana boating
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I'm currently a Professor of Education at Bethel University in Minneapolis, MN. My love affair with Mexico began when I visited Vallarta with my wife and children about 15 years ago. Since my first exposure to Mexico I have returned seven times with groups of education majors from Bethel. In addition to these yearly visits our family purchased beachfront property in Manzanillo (Santiago Bay) about three years ago. In July of 2009 we completed construction of a simple casita that we use as a family and for rental purposes.
Why the Owner Chose Olas Altas, Manzanillo, Col., Mexico:
When this beautiful beachfront property became available our family moved immediately to make the purchase. We loved the traditional Mexican setting, low crime rate, and the friendliness and warmth of the people. The relaxed living and easy access to taxis and buses was a benefit as well. The established ex-pat community helped us navigate the construction and furnishing of our casita. The fact that Manzanillo is not overly touristy added to the appeal of this location.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our friendly English-speaking caretakers, the Maritnez family, will greet you at the casita and are available day or night if needed.
