  • Rustic luxury: Simple beds/baths, but huge & beautiful outdoor living area + the best view ever!

    "I think rustic luxury is an apt description of this property. If you go in with the right expectations, this could be your best vacation ever. The photos don't lie about the infinity pool and view. It really was incredible! The pool water was a nice temperature. The beach chairs were comfortable and well maintained. Etc. I also loved the outdoor living area. It was huge with tons of seating and tasteful, traditional Mexican decor. The area was covered by tall palapas. Colorful tiles lined the stairs. Truly beautiful! The bedrooms and bathrooms were more simple and dated but adequate when it wasn't too hot. The beachside suite (down a long path with some stairs, quite far from the main house) didn't have A/C when we were there, and several of the overhead fans and one A/C unit in the home weren't functioning. Even in the bedrooms with functional A/C units and fans, the shutter windows and palapa roofs aren't perfectly sealed, so air did escape. As a result it was very hot and difficult to sleep on our hottest night--admittedly probably the hottest part of the year. However, on our less temperate night, ocean breezes plus the A/C and fans made it lovely. Some of the beds had mosquito nets, but I'd recommend bringing bug spray and maybe even citronella candles too. Expect mosquitos and other bugs, even inside. The housekeeper does a great job, but this is an older, traditional home. Steep cement stairs with no railing take you to a rocky beach--probably not somewhere you'd want to swim, at least not with kids. We went to look but didn't spend time there. We didn't visit the neighborhood's private beach but did drive a few minutes to the Las Hadas resort (day passes were about $35/person including drinks/beverages). We loved the idea of a private chef/house manager, and he did prepare a phenomenal ceviche! However, service wasn't quite what we'd hoped. For example, he scoffed when we asked for meals earlier than is customary in Mexico. Even after changing times at his request, meals arrived quite a bit later than agreed upon which was a little tricky since we were traveling with young children used to routines. Also, one evening we had a situation that we could have used help with but didn't know how to find or reach him. This certainly didn't ruin our trip -- it just wasn't the pampering we expected. All in all, we had a great stay at this beautiful, traditional Mexican home with one of the best views I've ever seen. I'd absolutely return!"

  • Perfect vacation!

    "I can't say enough about how beautiful this place is, and how lovely our time spent there was. My family (husband, 3 children, grandparents) stayed here for a week and were very comfortable, with every wish being taken care of by the excellent staff. The views off the bedrooms and main living area are stunning, and there was always a gentle ocean breeze. Sunsets are amazing, enjoy the view from the beautiful infinity pool. The estate also has an amazing private beach, with it's own set of showers and pools, as well as a safe, inlet sand beach. We did a day trip to see a little town near an active volcano, and we also enjoyed the little restaurants around Manzanillo. But I agree with another reviewer, there is really no need to ever leave this beautiful home! We loved every minute and wished we could have stayed longer. Definitely hope to go back."

  • Lugar Increible / Amazing Place

    "Al principio cuando vi las fotos en la página no tenía la certeza de que fuera real el lugar. Me ha sucedido en ocasiones anteriores en que ponen fotos y cuando llegas al lugar no cumple las expectativas mostradas en las fotos. Cuando llegamos a la propiedad todo fue exactamente igual que en las fotos. Es un lugar increíble, todo el complejo, la alberca, la terraza, la vista al mar inmejorable, todo muy bien cuidado, limpio. Un lugar para descansar y desconectarte de la vida diaria. La atención de la señora Linda excelente. A mi familia y a mí nos encantó el lugar, queríamos quedarnos más días. Ya estamos contando los días para volver. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. At the beginning when I saw the pictures in the webpage I did not have the confidence that the place was real. In other occasions I had bad experiences seeing other beautiful properties on line, but when you arrive to the place, it does not meet the expectations created by the pictures. When we arrived to this property it was exactly the opposed, the real place exceed my expectations. The place is amazing, the swimming pool, the chalet, the ocean view is unbelievable, everything is clean and in good shape. Great place to get disconnected from the normal life. The attention of Mrs. Linda was great. My family is looking for the next vacation here. I recommend it wisely."

  • Muy Bueno!

    "I hesitate to add another glowing review for no other reason than I want to keep this gem all to myself! That wouldn't be fair though so I'll add my voice to the mix. Just like the other reviews I can't say enough about the house itself, the owners and the entire rental experience. The house is fantastic; well appointed, very private and a perfect oasis in the midst of the city - and VERY quiet at night. It's within walking distance of restaurants, shops and museums and the good sized private pool is fantastic. Beyond this though, the owners were responsive to all my questions and inquiries and couldn't have been nicer. We only corresponded by email but I feel like I know them. Likewise, their parents who live next door and manage the property were two of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. We met their dog, saw pictures of their grandchildren and talked to them in passing almost daily. It was a wonderful experience. As for Colima itself, we loved it. We're spending this winter and next looking at potential places to buy a retirement home and Colima is definitely on our short list. It's a very compact livable city with anything you could ever want without being too large or overwhelming. Not every experience we've had with VRBO rentals has been positive but in this case the best thing I can say is there were no surprises. The home was exactly as presented and there was nothing missing or lacking. We're already sorry we have to leave and it's only because of other circumstances that we're not booking next year now, before it's too late. Cheers!"
