About the property

Villa Copa de Oro is truly the luxury Mexican Villa that you have been searching for. For many of our visitors, Villa Copa de Oro is their home away from home. You will be welcomed with open arms, whether for a relaxing family trip, a wedding, a honeymoon, or just a get-away-from-it-all vacation!

Our villa, situated within a gated compound on over an acre of land, has amazing views from our hilltop perch, overlooking a lush jungle with stunning hiking trails, mountains, a salt and fresh water lagoon, a sparking bay and is just steps away from a safe beach, perfect for swimming. Wander the beautifully landscaped property, picking fresh avocados, limes, bananas, papayas and mangos from our trees, or sit beneath the coconut palms surrounded by tropical plants and have an afternoon siesta. Relax on our expansive patio and watch nature¹s theater unfold before you, as wild parrots and other tropical birds dart in and out from the surrounding jungle to bathe in our majestic fountain. Our villa is a secluded paradise yet easily accessible to restaurants, beautiful beaches and all of the beauty that Manzanillo and the surrounding areas have to offer.

For larger groups or retreats, Villa Copa de Oro provides the perfect setting for business gatherings requiring space for group sessions with various breakout areas, abundant privacy and lush tranquil surroundings.

GOLF COURSES: Are you or is someone in your group a golfer? We have five beautiful golf courses: El Tamarindo, an 18-hole course known for its beauty and ocean views is an hour away. Isla Navidad, a 27-hole course is only 20 miles away with beautiful ocean and lagoon views and a great clubhouse with a restaurant, as well as small boats to take you across to Barra de Navidad for a leisurely lunch in one of several restaurants overlooking the large lagoon and the ocean. Las Hadas, our local version of Disney World, is an 18-hole course with breathtaking ocean views. Club Santiago, 9-hole course is just minutes away. Corazon de Manzanillo, is our newest 18-hole course and is 2 miles away. It too is on the ocean and has tropical views, with a clubhouse and restaurant. Manzanillo is truly a hidden golfers paradise!

HOUSEKEEPER AND CARETAKER: Connie, our longtime trusted housekeeper and manager arrives early each day and is always ready to

assist you with a smile and warm embrace. Nothing is left undone! She will wash and iron your clothes and organize whatever you ask of her. Augustine, our longtime gardener and caretaker, will carry in your bags, cleans the pool, tend the garden and assist you with anything that you need at Copa de Oro.

BEACH CLUB: We belong to a wonderful nearby beach club, minutes away from our villa with a restaurant, lounges, tables, chairs, and

beach toys available for rent. There are nice showers and lovely grounds and it is available to you at no charge as a guest of Copa de Oro.


Fly to Manzanillo International Airport (ZLO) from many points worldwide.

About Luz Gallagher (Lucille F. Mays)

We have lived in our villa for over 30 years. It is a home away from home to our renters. We are delighted to welcome you to our luxury and tranquil paradise.

Luz Gallagher (Lucille F. Mays) purchased this villa in 1972

Why Luz Gallagher (Lucille F. Mays) chose Manzanillo

We were looking for something more private than a beach home and found the area most suited for us. We have been very blessed to have found this majestic, private and idyllic hilltop to build our villa that overlooks the bay, jungle, mountains, and lagoon.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is very private, each room with a gorgeous view. Bedrooms have sliding glass doors to large palapa covered balcony with magnificent views. Flocks of parrots and tropical birds singing and bathing in our large fountain are better than any TV show! This little slice of heaven is truly the perfect antidote for the stress of city life. We love our visitors and hope to welcome you to Copa de Oro!

Best home rental in Mexico!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best home rentals possible in Mexico. You have a secluded view of a lagoon with easy access to the beach and restaurants. Clubs are nearby, too! Great for families and couples.

Family vacation in Monzanillo

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Mexico in June 2014, we stayed at Villa De Copa De Oro for approximately three weeks. My husband and I have three young boys, eight, six, and three. The Villa was amazing. We had very comfortable accommodations, and the staff was incredible. Connie made us authentic Mexican cuisine, and kept the Villa looking beautiful every day. Her husband Vicente, was so kind and generous to our boys. He even help them make Father's Day shirts for my husband while we were there. They took excellent care of our family, particularly our children. They were patient with our children which was such a gift to us. Augustine kept the pool and garden in impeccable shape during our stay. They were very knowledgeable about the town, and gave us directions and guidance as far as getting around town, and enjoying the night scene. They also connected us with locals in planning our excursions. Luz, The owner of the Villa, is such a kind and generous soul. She made us feel extremely welcome, and has built such a marvelous home. Villa de Copa de Oro has our highest recommendation, and we are planning another trip this year!
