Why John Land Le Coq chose Club Santiago
A winter escape to a land of warmth, color, spirit and liveliness. As a home that is built directly on one of the most beautiful beaches and bays in Mexico, this is a family home that I hope is passed down to my family for many generations. The quality of light in this special home is hard to describe, and the simplicity of space draws out the very best within ourselves.
What makes this House unique
Waking up to the sound of the sea and falling asleep to the rhythm of the tide. The beach is directly in front of the house, and light fills the home through floor to ceiling windows facing the water.

Beachfront with Pool & Character
We like to experience a little more authentic local color than the large fancy resorts offer, at the same time we like beachfront homes with views, pools, amenities we "can't live without" like AC, Coffee maker, Washer/Dryer and Wifi.
Casa Le Coq was everything we wanted and needed. The common area is vibrant, comfortable and spacious. The rooms and beds we just right. Bathrooms are really cool with colorful tile work. Kitchen had everything we needed. Inside and out there is beautiful artwork, plants and flowers.
We spent most of our time in the water right in front of the house or in the pool, or lounging between the two. Lots of birds and fish to watch, and depending on the day or season there are a few vendors who walk by the house selling fresh mango, baked goods, ice cream and seafood. You can walk for hours on the large beach, hike up to a couple amazing vantage points, and walk to nice or locals restaurants.
The pool guy and housekeeper did a fantastic job keeping the space clean and tidy, while hardly making their presence known.
We had a chef recommended by the owner who came and cooked for us the first and last two nights. They shopped, cooked and cleaned up for less than it cost to go out to eat, and so much nicer for our group who was in total relax mode.
Thank you for your comments and appreciation for the details we work hard to maintain for our guests! Ultimately, Casa Le Coq should be the seamless intersection of your enjoyment of the life outside on the beach, pool, etc. Guests like you that appreciate an authentic Mexico experience of culture and environment, combined with the comforts of a home bathed in natural light, are what drives our passions. Thank you!
Beautiful home right on the beach! Very helpful owner!
We loved every second staying at Casa LeCoq! The owner has carefully chosen tile and wood accents throughout the house. Also, lovely artwork. A great restaurant right down the beach with excellent food and service. We loved the house and location so much we didn't really do anything else!
Lovely accommodation in a great location
Casa le Coq was as described. Location was perfect. Quiet stretch of beach with just enough surf to be interesting. The house was well furnished. Lots of seating. Comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. Rosa came to do extra cleaning as requested and was very accommodating. The main living area did heat up a bit in the morning, but overall the house was very comfortable. The pool was a lovely size for a group of 6 and was well used during our stay. All in all, a great vacation spot for a family!

Thank you for your comments! I very much appreciate your time spent at my home on the beach, and I value our conversations and knowing that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Le Coq. Renting my home to people like you is a gift. Thank you!
The charm of Casa Le Coq lies in its open, sun filled simplicity. The ceiling to floor windows that frame the entire water facing view captures the sparkle of the sea.
Glass doors open to the private, architecturally designed pool. A grassy lawn and pots of deep raspberry bougainvillea led to the magnificent Playa Miramar.
Gently wrapping for miles along the Santiago Bay, beachcombers can stroll forever on the soft gold and black sands.
For those looking for shopping, an easy beach stroll will take you to numerous beach shops at the local Artisans Market. There you can find colorfully embroidered dresses and sombreros in every style.
Silver jewelry and handmade baskets are plentiful.
Sprinkled on the beach are umbrellas and brightly colored tables and chairs – each a family owned beachside café for the thirsty traveler.
The hip Oasis Beach Bar & Grill makes the best fish tacos you’ll find in Mexico. Margaritas and chips can keep you there for hours.
Morning yoga classes are held on the beachfront terrace.
Volleyball nets and happy folks find joy in a pick up game with strangers.
Paddles boards and ocean kayaks are available to rent and a horseback ride on the beach is easy to find.
Local fishing is considered some of the best in the world – Dorado being a favorite. Day trips are available to book
The ever so lively La Boquita is just a beach walk away on the playa. Mexican radio and numerous souvenir carts brimming with beach toys and snorkel gear, plentiful local restaurants and activities like the classic banana boat rides put a bit of pizazz in the otherwise tranquility of Playa Miramar.
Club Santiago’s private 9 hole golf course is one of several highly acclaimed courses in the area.
The famous Las Hadas resort is only a 10 minute drive away from Casa Le Coq, and is considered to have one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. The challenging Isla Navidad’s 27-hole championship course designed by Robert Von-Hagge, and the spectacular El Tamarindo, a 2,000 acre ecological preserve are sought after by players around the world.
The authentic town of Santiago is minutes away by car, and has wonderful open fish and vegetable markets for the foodies who visit. The Las Primavera Boutique sells handmade Talavera goods and specialty items that serve as reminders of the artisans of Mexico.
Mexico is about food and music and warmth and a loving and happy country of deeply spiritual people. Children are everywhere. And happiness abounds.
Casa Le Coq is a beach house on the playa. The sensibility is one of playfulness and relaxation. The climate is next to perfection and the ocean breeze keeps Casa Le Coq refreshing and always comfortable.
For those looking for excursions, the town of Barra de Navidad is a hipster surfing village with many local shops selling all things Mexican. Further up the coast is the elegant Careyes Resort and Spa and the mountainous volcanoes of Colima are a dramatic adventure excursion.
Manzanillo hosts a good number of locally owned restaurants from moderate to expensive serving delicious local and international cuisine, and if you choose to sample the food at any of the fine resorts in the area, dining is an exquisite experience, a combination of classic culinary techniques mixed with bold local flavors under the direction of internationally-trained chefs.
For those of you who want an authentic Mexican experience, far away from the maddening crowd, discover the charm of Casa Le Coq.
