About Jane Colclasure

Great admirers of Mexico---historically and present. Love to travel!

Jane Colclasure purchased this villa in 1999

Why Jane Colclasure chose Lower Conchas Chinas

Best of all worlds in Mexico: Colonial City, second largest bay in North America(no commercial vessels allowed), Sierra Del Sur mountain range(greenery), semitropical jungle,wonderful restaurants!, numerous attractions for singles and families!

What makes this villa unique

We designed and built the villa in an attempt to bring our guests some exposure to the vast cultural aspects of Mexico---Precolumbian Civilization, Colonial Mexico, and the present cultural scene--art and artisans.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Casa Del Quetzal. The home was beautiful and the view was to die for. The staff was great. The food was delish and they catered to our group of 10, which included 4 somewhat picky children and a vegetarian. I sincerely hope we can go back.

Casa Quetzal

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Casa Quetzal. All of the staff were very accommodating. The food was excellent (especially the tamales!) and the service was great throughout the week. The staff was also helpful is arranging taxis for our group when we wanted to go into town. The house was very spacious and the view was amazing. I'm already looking forward to visiting again!

Everything was amazing from the view to the staff. Easily one of the nicest holiday homes I've ever had the chance to stay in.

The property has so much character and charm, you can tell it's had loving owners over the years due to the detail/choice of art and furniture.

I would of been happy spending my week just at the house, but the location makes it so easy to organize activities - it was a win win!

One tip - ask the great staff for some quacamole!

The landmark for the area is the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe with its unique glass dome.

The area offers a cultured grace with some the most talented artists, architects, and chefs in North America. Approximately 120 restaurants and entertainment facilities are available throughout the region---including many of 5 star quality.

Art galleries dot the city and include the work of local legend Manuele Lupe. The local museum contains an interesting array of pre-Colombian artifacts. Shopping is unsurpassed with many upscale shops as well as one of the largest local craft markets in Mexico.

Numerous beaches surround the bay. All activities common to seaside resorts are readily available.
