This 3 bedroom 3 bath first floor apartment was constructed in 2006. It faces west and every afternoon is blessed with a fresh breeze off the ocean and a gorgeous sunset. The pool and palapa are meters from the beach which is never crowded. The kitchen includes a fridge & freezer, stove & oven. Maid service is supplied once a week (3 hours). Optional air conditioning is available in the summer months for the cost of electricity consumed. Excellent restaurants are within a block or two from our front door.
We were so excited to get to Manzanillo and actually see our vacation home. It looked so lovely in the pictures and we were hoping that it would be as good, when we got there. It was so much better than we'd imagined. Right on the beach! We watched the sealife and ships every day while drinking coffee in the morning. We saw dolphins, rays and whales in the bay. Awesome.
The palapa was one of our favorite places to be. The pool is so wonderful. Perfect temperature and kept very clean.
There is a wrecked ship/concrete directly in front of the house. Great snorkeling but we felt that it maybe made the beach access difficult. We did notice that in front of the houses on either side, the beach access was very easy. Lots of families going in and out of the water with no problems.
The house is amazing. We loved it. We did have a few maintenance issues that were being taken care of while we were there. Paul, the owner was there during some of the time that we were there. He is a great guy and he worked very hard to get issues taken care of. We realized that we were in Mexico and expected it to take a while to get things taken care of!
Wal Mart and Soriano's are about 2 miles away. Very easy to get to and a taxi was about 1.00. Just walk out to the main street (one block) and get a taxi. Very easy. Maybe 2 blocks away is OXXO (like a 7-11). They have pretty much any essential item you could use (eggs, butter, etc).
Taxi at the airport was 515 pesos for the entire taxi. It was 35.00 for entire taxi (not per person) to get back to the airport. It is between 30-40 minutes away.
We absolutely loved the house and our vacation and can't wait to return. Thank you Paul! It was great to spend time with you and hope to do it again soon.
We stayed here for 10 days in February. You can not ask for a better view of the ocean, with easy access to the ocean and clean beach to walk on. Very nice accommodations and no car needed, there are many place to eat and shop within walking distance of Condo. We will defiantly stay here again the next time we travel to this area.
Absolutely fantastic! Casa del Mar is a wonderful place for a vacation in the sun. Situated right on the beach of Manzanillo Bay it offers a fabulous view of the ocean. It was great just sitting and watching the ships come and go, the locals swimming and fishing, the sand crabs scurry about, not to mention the magnificent waves and sunsets. The beach is accessible by a short walk around a neighbouring property.
The condo itself was perfect - lots of room for everyone with a well appointed kitchen and large dinning and sitting areas. A beautiful ocean breeze along with ceiling and floor fans in each room made for very comfortable living. The grounds are very well maintained along with a lovely, very clean pool. Great security both at street and beach levels.
Shopping, Saturday market, restaurants and a great beach for family fun are all easy to get to by using a very simple bus system (usually only one bus needed for any destination). The local people are wonderful - speak a bit of English and very open/happy to having tourists in their community.
Many thanks to Paul for making us feel welcome and comfortable. We look forward to returning next year.
This house is big and spacious nicely furnished. There are two ocean facing bedrooms. Loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. Loved hanging out by the pool, just staring at the ocean. My kids loved the pool, couldn't get them out of it. I don't recommend swimming in the beach, the waves are rough( unless your a very good swimmer) definitely not for young children. I only let my kids play in the sand.
Each bedroom had its own bathroom, 2 bedrooms had a full bed and 1 a king size bed. We had plenty of space for our family of 6. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. Something to note, there was a bit of rust around the sink, no matter how hard I tried could not get rid of it. Might be due to the humidity metal tends to rust. Also, some of the drawers smelled kind of bad and the handles on cabinets had some kind of oil or Vaseline on them. Overall kitchen was big and stove worked great (6 burners).
We purchased a hammock and set it up in the cabana area. Kids loved swinging in it. We also loved cutting down the coconuts and drinking fresh coconut juice! I learned how to open them( I borrowed a machete from the caretaker Jose)
Wifi worked pretty good and parking was easy could fit 2 cars, we had a minivan.
We used the washer and dryer worked great, wish that detergent and softner could have been provided and some kind of spray or cleaning agent for sink and counter tops. Property was easy to find about 40 minutes from ZLO airport.
We did not request nor did we need AC, just opening the glass doors let in the breeze.
I would have liked a tub, non of the bathrooms had one.
We felt very safe at this house, location was near lots of restaurants and not to far from Walmart and Soriana.
Overall loved this house with uninterrupted ocean views! Also mountain views. Beautiful sunsets!!
Thank you to Paul and his staff for allowing us to use your home , truly enjoyed our time there. Highly recommend.
An awesome place to enjoy Manzanillo from - right on the beach, secure and with easy access to restaurants and activities. The family loved it. Thanks Paul. We travel a lot and we'd come back.
