About Rory Pike
Our home was one of the original built in the beautiful community of La Punta twenty five years ago. As such, it was a prime location with outstanding views and unrivalled privacy. Upon purchase in 2009, we hired a contractor who spoke only Spanish and the adventure began! ( neither Rory nor I speak Spanish, but we're learning!) Our permanent home is in Canada, so needless to say, there were a great many emails! The Villa has been completely renovated, refurnished and renamed. The inspiration came from our many, much loved trips to Italy. It was these travels and memories that inspired the "old world " feel of Villa Casablanca. Our vision was to evoke a sense of classic, but comfortable elegance. All of the furniture was custom built in Guadalajara by amazing craftsmen. All of the upholstery and bed coverings were designed and also custom made in Guadalajara. We are still adding to the Villa and see it as a work in progress. Throughout this adventure we have met some wonderful people and have developed some treasured friendships. We love the warmth of the Mexican people, the culture, the ocean and the savory Mexican foods. We wish you a wonderful holiday and hope that you experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. So, put your feet up, sip on a margarita and enjoy Villa Casablanca and the magnificent views of Manzanillo Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen!
Rory Pike purchased this Villa in 2009
What makes this Villa unique
The staff at Villa Casablanca are quite simply outstanding. Our guest book reflects this with every weeks comments. The other thing that separate this villa are the views. They are completely unobstructed and we are at an elevation which makes you feel like you can touch the water while offering the advantage of enough height to provide a fantastic perspective on Manzanillo Bay and the mountains in the background. The night time views are equally as captivating as the daytime views as we face Manzanillo Bay. If you face out to sea, views disappear with the sun.

Villa Casablanca never disappoints!
Wonderful property in a perfect setting! Brilliant staff, great food and the best Maragritas on earth.
We had perfect weather, snorkelled every day, 4 wheeling in the mountains, coral reef excursion and lots of time lounging by the pool!
We’ll be back for sure and this time it won’t take 6 years. :-)
Thank you for the review. Yes, our staff are brilliant, the best in La Punta. We'd love to host you all again.
Our stay at Villa Casablanca was better than we imagined. We were well looked after from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The staff are so accommodating and go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. Rosario, our chef, cooks the most delicious meals, and Rafa our bartender/concierge makes the best margaritas I have ever had. Rafa was able to provide so much information on the area and happily helped us with our plans outside of the villa. The resident's beach is pristine with opportunities for good snorkelling right there. The villa is a perfect location with good restaurants nearby if you fancy a night out. I have already recommended this property to many others and I can't wait to return.
Beautiful, clean, and friendly staff! Looking forward to my next trip!
The views were extraordinary, the house was clean, and their staff was welcoming!
A Week Living like the Rich & Famous!
I visited Villa Casablanca last week with 8 of my book club friends. We were all very impressed with the food, service and the villa itself. The villa manager arranged for pick up at the airport and we were greeted with an air conditioned van and Corona on ice. In 30 min and we were at the Villa. When we arrived to La Punta community we had to show our passports to get past 24 hr gate showing that they take security very seriously. When we arrived the staff welcomed us with a cocktail in the magnificent foyer overlooking the ocean. We were then given a tour and picked our rooms. All the bedrooms are large and have a great view.
Rosario, the chef, made us breakfast, lunch, dinner and an afternoon snack every day. The hardest part of the trip was deciding what food to pick from Rosario's wide range of menu items! We loved every meal - so fresh and flavorful!
Whenever we needed a drink, Rafael, was at our service. His Margaritas are fabulous! Rafael went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed at the villa.
We enjoyed the pool everyday which is maintained by Rafael. The villa is very quiet and clean. We didn’t hear or see any neighbours. The villa staff speak good English, which made it easy to communicate. The beach is quiet with some surf as you enter the water. Once past the surf, it is easy to swim.
The Villa owners are very responsive and friendly. They did a great job of giving us all the information needed to get ready for our stay. And they went out of their way to help us out when our original flight got cancelled and we had to rearrange our departure date.
We would definitely return to the Villa Casablanca!
Perched on the hillside overlooking Manzanillo Bay, the La Punta private beach and the Pacific ocean. Located in the renowned La Punta development with private beach club and tennis courts. Adjacent to (with access to the facilities and discounts for services) Las Hadas Resort and golf course. Minutes to all amenities, yet remote enough to be a different world.
