About the property

The perfect healthy lifestyle getaway that's tranquil and easily accessible

The perfect getaway for a couple, this charming 1-BR/1BA condo is located within Estrella del Mar (a gated, master-planned community featuring over 3 miles of private beach, 18-holes of championship golf and a 1st-class spa. Estrella del Mar is the best kept secret and the best value in the Pacific!

The community is gated, secured and meticulously maintained. This amazing project is home to an annual PGA golf tournament and has something for everyone.

The golf clubhouse is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute shuttle ride away from the condo. It is where you will find the pro shop and one of two fitness centers. It is also where you will find the La Paloma Restaurant and Bar. Life at Estrella del Mar is casual, so except for the busiest weekend morning, reservations are not needed for golf and the same goes for dinner at night. Just show up and enjoy yourself.

Estrella del Mar’s Turtle Sanctuary is one of the unique features of the development – a public/private partnership with Mexico’s environmental protection agency that protects the native turtle nesting grounds. During the hatching season, the volunteers at the turtle sanctuary will show you around and you can even release some turtles into the ocean!

A short walk up the beach from the condos, you will find the Las Villas Hotel. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Just let them know what you need and they will make it happen. Las Villas offers a full bar, restaurants, a complete fitness center, and a first class spa. You can also rent bikes and boogie boards, and make appointments for horseback riding. There is decent surfing in the area and recently kite boarding had become popular.

Mazatlan is easily accessible, about 30 minutes way, and features plenty of excellent dining and nightlife options plus the charming historic downtown area. It is also where anglers can pick up a fishing trip to some of the best fishing grounds in the Pacific!

Our condo is located on the ground floor and when you walk out onto the patio, you are steps from the beautiful resort-style pool and only a few more steps to the gorgeous white sandy beach. And when you walk out the backdoor, you will find yourself on Estrella's signature golf course. This condo has everything you need for a long weekend or the whole season - washer/dryer, full kitchen, separate shower and tub, and a patio that overlooks the pool.

Everything we ever wanted was found right here at Estrella del Mar. It is the perfect place for you if you're looking for a healthy lifestyle destination. The beach and the gated resort area are perfect for running and the Pacific Ocean is warm and calm in the mornings, ideal for swimming. There are tennis courts and, of course, the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. signature golf course that is a joy to play.

Estrella del Mar is only ten minutes from Mazatlan international airport and within minutes of landing you will be settled in and ready to let your cares slip away. Come enjoy this beautiful little gem of a resort! Once you experience it, you will want to come back time and time again! We have been coming to Estrella del Mar since 1998 and our only regret is not spending more time here.

About Philip Fitzgerald

A well seasoned traveler who has been to more than 70 countries and has visited literally every resort town in Mexico and all 31 states in Mexico. My wife and I are accomplished athletes and seek healthy alternatives to the typical "resort" vacations.

Philip Fitzgerald purchased this condo in 2001

Why Philip Fitzgerald chose Mazatlán

We found Estrella del Mar in 1998 and knew this was the place for us. With direct flights from Southern California and only 10 minutes away from Mazatlan airport, Estrella del Mar offered easy access and great value. It is much less expensive or hectic compared to Cabo or Vallarta and much closer than Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

We love having a place right on the water (pool or ocean) without the hassles of long treks to and from the lounge chair. And the resort itself is perfect for people who value fitness. Estrella del Mar is gate and has about 3 miles of virtually private beach. It is an ideal place for runners and swimmers. It's also a great place for golfers. The course is designed perfectly for good golfers who hit the ball a mile, or hacks like me who need a wide landing zone closer into the tee box. The best part of this course is that you never have to worry about being jammed in between groups that are either holding you up or pushing you from behind. Play the way golf was meant to be played - at your pace! And the course is spectacular!

Everything we wanted in a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for something private, quiet, and scenic. We really enjoyed our stay. Steps from a beautiful pool and ocean views. 3 mile private beach. Nice workout facility. Awesome golf. Saw some baby sea turtles hatch on beach. The condo is very open and modern. Well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable. Loved it!

Beautiful, restful, natural, supportive of both rest and recreation, comfortable, safe, and fun.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well-kept with clear, cool pools and delightful hot tubs and saunas. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to get us whet we needed, any time of day. Our 'neighbors', especially the 'old pros', were friendly and helpful with just the right amount of advice on questions. It was relatively isolated, which was both good news and bad news. The good news: no traffic or bustle and easy to relax in the beautiful natural surroundings. The bad news: it took some planning--and time--to get to a grocery store. Fortunately, the food served at both the Hotel and Club Room were not bad, and we ate breakfast at one of the two places every morning.

From initial contact, the owner clearly wanted our stay to be a good one and responded to every question we had.

We intend to go back to this beautiful place!

Tranquil setting at the beach and golf course.

  • 5 of 5

Modern high end facility. Great place to relax, swim in the huge infinity pool and watch the amazing sunsets. Two restaurants on the property. We tried the one at the hotel. Small but very comfortable bed. Nice to have a washer and dryer. Would have liked a bbq or at least a grilling pan for the oven. Good size fridge with ice maker! Wifi was only available near the common sitting area. Not sure why, but we didn't have hot water to shower. If you stay here make sure you get a few groceries before you get here as there is no store on site and it's a long way back to Mazatlan.

Idyllic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a blissful week in the seclusion of the Estrella Del Mar resort. The apartment really does have everythjing you could ask for and is immaculately clean and modern, as well as being beautifully appointed. If it's peace and quiet you are looking for you will find here.
