It was our second time this year renting Kelly and Mike’s special condo. Their home was sparkling clean and ready for our family just like the first time. We loved everything about it from the location on Playa Audiencia to the condo itself. It is well organized and the furnishings are lovely. Kelly and Mike are excellent hosts and even have a local friend who makes sure there are no questions or problems. Our family would like to thank them for a wonderful vacation!
Thank you once again for trusting us, with your vacation. We have really enjoyed getting to know you, through text conversation. We certainly have been blessed, with the friends there, to help with any hiccups that come along. Thank you again Renee. You are always welcome, anytime! Take care!
Greatest hostess and wonderful place!
Me and my family stayed here for 4 days, we had an amazing vacation, Kelly and Mike are the greatest hostess, thoughtful and caring for every single detail at the apartment. The location is great, with easy access to the beach, great view and the pool and the restaurant area are always clean and with good service. The apartment has everything you need to spend a great time, is fully equipped and with extra details that will make you feel like home. I totally recommend this place, I would love to go back soon!
Thank you very much, for your incredible feedback and review!
Mike and I, truly appreciate it.
We are so happy you found the condo relaxing and fully stocked, for your vacation. We cannot wait to host you again, anytime!
Until next time, all the best Renee!
Our vacation at Condominium Galapagos was absolutely wonderful. The condo was so well laid out that there was plenty of room for our family of five. We all loved it! The furnishings were comfortable and it was stocked with everything we needed. Its location on the first floor above the pool and beach was perfect. The kiddie pool with its water slide was a big hit and a place where our grandsons could meet other kids staying at the condo. It was very relaxing to sleep with the sound of the surf. The privacy and blackout shades worked perfectly. The beds were extremely comfortable. The condominium is located on Playa La Audiencia, a small lovely bay with gentle waves. Even though we chose to travel Easter week, it felt like we were insulated from the chaos of the crowds because relatively few tourists (national or international) go there. The staff was attentive and vigilant. They made sure we had everything we needed at the pool and the beach. Our grandsons (age 7 and 11) had the freedom to play and explore on their own because we felt safe. Another plus for us was our morning walks through the extended neighborhood. We enjoyed the views of Manzanillo itself and Santiago Bay as we exercised. We are bilingual so language was not an issue. The staff and most of the guests were Spanish speakers. The parking was tricky, but there was always room for us. Grocery shopping was easy and convenient. All in all, we had a great vacation and are looking forward to returning soon. Thank you so much.
We would like to thank you for your review, Peggy and Rodney and the time you took to write it.
We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the condo, with your family.
Until next time, we would love to host you.
Enjoy your day!
Kelly and Mike
A gorgeous setting with the pool and beach just steps away!
We were greeted with a welcome card and a bottle of champagne!
Michael has a very nice condo with 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, which is not huge but well laid out. It is fully furnished with just about everything you would want. The location is perfect for the beautiful beach below. The back of the condo faces the pool and beach with floor to ceiling windows. The sunsets were spectacular. The things we liked best besides the view, were the Keurig coffee maker (we brought our own pods), great TV with a zillion channels and movies, 24 hour security and the restaurant downstairs with Maria the cook. Francisco, their tour guide friend is the nicest man you would ever want to meet. He gave us a personal city tour, we had a good time and I would recommend it.
If you want to go anywhere you really need a car, taxis are available but we found them a little cumbersome. Michael was kind enough to arrange a car for us which I picked up at the airport. Evidently US residents are charged more, so it was about half the cost with Michael's help. We really needed more explicit driving directions as even the taxi driver didn't know how to get to Galapagos. Driving up and down the cobblestone streets are an adventure the first couple of times!
We had a few issues with the building, like a bad sewer gas smell and one of the elevators would occasionally drop a little in between the 3rd & 4th floors. The condo was clean for the most part, but I did wash the master bedroom mattress pad as it was not clean. And the tile floors could have been cleaner also. Since we were the first people to rent from Michael, I'm sure these things will be addressed next time. He seems to be a sincere and enjoyable person.
Overall we had a great time relaxing in perfect weather!
Thank you for your review and the time it took to write one. We really appreciate it!
It makes us very happy to hear all the wonderful experiences you had in Manzanillo and the people you met. We feel the same way and so fortunate to have those too, each time we visit.
Thank you for bringing to our attention, the things that could have been better, while visiting. The bedding situation will be addressed ASAP and we will have extra mattress covers, for our housekeeper. Thank you for washing it and sorry you had to. The floors and sewer smell, have caused us some frustration as well. With the salt air and sandy beach so close, the floors seem to dirty feet easily. I'll ask our housekeeper to try her best when mopping the floors. We recently replaced all the toilets and made sure the seals were redone and re-caulked. It seems like a building issue, as others throughout the building have also complained about it. We are trying our best to get to the bottom of it and hope it gets rectified. The elevator issue happens to us periodically as well.
We apologize for any anxiety this may have caused. Once again, thank you for visiting our property and for your informative feedback.
Excelente lugar para disfrutar tu descanso en la playa
Solo poner pasamanos en los baños para los adultos mayores.... Les gustó mucho el departamento y la vista.... Todo excelente.... Gracias
Gracias por tu calificación Tu sugerencia de pasamanos en los baños, fue una gran idea! Los añadiremos enseguida. También tenemos una silla de ducha en orden. Tenga un día maravilloso y nos alegra que haya disfrutado el condominio. Kelly y Mike
