What makes this condo unique

Guests travelling to Melaque have their choices of more than a dozen different locations to explore during their stay, most of which are different beaches with small communities. Because this is a 6 unit complex, most guests return year after year and are able to help newcomers 'learn the ropes.' Our central location is perfect for travellers who don't have a car - you can walk one minute to the beach or five minutes to the heart of the sleepy little town. If you prefer, we have a Ford Escape available for rent, weekly or monthly. There are grocery stores nearby, as well as a bunch of seaside pubs/restaurants. Beer is less than a buck a bottle, right on the beach! And a great fresh seafood plate will run you $7 or $8. We offer day tours to many super locations!

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Ana, kindly picked us up at the airport, she truly is a delightful lady . The help received from showing us around to delivering us and waiting at a Dr. visit was amazing.

The accommodation is exactly as shown on the web. Super area excellent location, best part of Melaque if you want to swim in the ocean , no drop off at this end.

If you are wanting to experience a Mexican fishing village, this is it.

Les and Ana are super hosts , cannot wait to return , already booked.

Great once again

  • 5 of 5

Once again this was a great vacation with Les and Ana. This year we took several of Ana' s tours and I'd have to say the trip to the lake and the lunch of fresh fish was the best. We had never had fish cooked like that and it was delicious. Another tour we took and a close second was the hot springs / snorkeling at Tenacatita. The waters of Tenacatita are crystal clear and full of colorful fish.

This year I started riding bikes with Les. Everyday he goes on a morning ride through the mango groves outside town. Along the way you pass by men making and firing bricks out of clay. It is a very peaceful ride and a great way to stay in shape. It can be a leisurely pace or crank up the speed for a full 30K ride. If you still need more of a workout, Les has a 2K swim that he can take you on.

If you enjoy fishing, they can hook you up with one of the best captains in Barra. I caught my first Black Marlin (@300k) and several Dorados on the charters Les arranged for me.

There is so much to do in Melaque and surrounding area. The locals are fabulous and very friendly. A walk into town takes about 10 minutes or Ana has a well maintained vehicle for rent on a weekly basis. A fresh fish market is about 150 yards down the street. Most of the tenants are repeat customers and can answer most of the questions you may have.

The bungalows are well maintained, clean and secure. The roof has a gathering area for the tenants with a hammock and numerous chairs for lounging. The view from the roof is phenomenal and on a clear day you can see the Colima volcano.

Thanks again Les and Ana. We will see you in November.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We both were thrilled when Ana drove us over to our condo . We were on the main floor with two beautiful windows looking out at a very very well kept courtyard. The bedrooms were very large and both had their own bathrooms... Very nice if company arrives... The kitchen was very well equipped and the living room had a beautiful couch, loveseat and chair. The complex is very secure and in a quiet location within walking distance of the main square and shopping. I also found a great place within two streets that offered pilates and i even found a yoga studio past the main square... We both fell in love the Ocieta and Krystal they are the welcome dogs and are the nicest most well behaved dogs. Miss them!!! Les and Ana are fabulous they are there is you need anything and are most pleasant company at happy hour. Thanks again for a great vacation. We will definitely be booking with you for our next Mexican holiday.

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

Melaque is a quiet town when compared to the resort cities of Puerto Vallarta & Manzanillo. The apartment was spacious, well-equipped & comfortable with friendly canines to greet you upon your arrival.

There are several good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Several small convenience stores are also close by. A ten minute walk downtown gets to more amenities and shops. Bus service to the surrounding communities is frequent and there is good inter-city service.

Ana & Les are good hosts and available for rides to the airport and tours of the area.

We enjoyed our vacation and hope to return to relax in the evening on the roof top patio.

Great location, quiet streets

  • 4 of 5

The house is in the quiet part of the area which suited us well. Just 10 minutes to town and 2 to the beach. Excellent restaurants along the beach for affordable, delicious snacks or meals -- everything is so fresh. The apartment was large enough and equipped with basic amenities. Wi-fi was intermittent at times but the booster helped. Lots of room for your things with counters, shelves and tables. No screen on the door in apt #4 so we did contend with a few mosquitoes at night as we liked the door open in the evening to catch a bit of the breeze to help cool down the place. Nice neighbours, little convenience stores in the neighbourhood, a great place to walk around even late in the evening. As two women travelers, we felt safe the whole time. Les was quick to respond to e-mails and all the questions I had ahead of time which helped ease our concerns and prepare for the relaxing holiday it was.

Perfect Location, Safe, Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Les and Ana were great hosts and quickly tended to a few small maladies we encountered, so thanks to them. The whole setup is very secure, clean and organized with an authentic Mexican feel. There is a large safe in the room. Hot water was plentiful and drinking water is set up on site for 14 pesos per 5 gallon (or so) jug. There is no a/c in suite #2, but you don't need it - the fans were more than enough. The suites are quite spacious, although suite #2 doesn't have much of a private patio area. Of the 2 queen beds, one mattress is very firm, the other was softer. There are plenty of shelves and closet space for your belongings. The towels, linens, etc and kitchen amenities provided were all that we needed.

There was never any pressure to do so, but various guests from the 6 suites (especially the Winnipeg Jets fan up on the top floor) often gathered in the courtyard or on the roof top for happy hour or even a shared meal. There is shade or sun and the mountain/oceanview is very nice from the top. The 2 dogs on site are fun, playful and friendly.

The town of Melaque is an easy and safe 10 minute walk at any time of day, although there are cafes and bars right nearby in both directions. And it's true - you can get beers on the beach for as low as 15 pesos. Everyone in town is quite friendly - probably because they are so happy to be there. You can walk for miles along the beach although the easiest portion of it is a block from your door. That just so happens to also be the best part of the whole beach in Melaque. The Fishermens' Coop is adjacent to the beach and you can purchase the freshest filleted fish any morning around 9:00 as the fishermen come in. The beach is not crowded and vendors are not pushy, quite friendly actually. The only drawback is snorkeling is poor in this location. A 60 peso taxi ride (one way to Cuaste Comates) or 17 peso bus ride (one way to La Manzanilla) takes you to nearby snorkeling beaches.

We have travelled throughout Mexico and although there is no pool here, we'd rate this place right near the top.
