Perfect in every way! {Guest: Kari}

Coming from someone that prefers to vacation at 5 star resorts, we were thrilled at this beach front home we rented via the internet. When we arrived everything was perfect. The house was built with exquisite taste and attention to detail (the photos just don’t do it justice). Everything about the house was high quality, from the decor, the furniture and gorgeous Mexican art in every room.
 
Five of the bedrooms open up to their own sitting area/balcony that overlooked the pool and the beach. The views were breathtaking. We enjoyed all of the sunsets and watching the ships coming in and out of the local port.
 
The pool was immaculately clean (as was then entire home and property) and the beach was only a few steps away. We felt very safe and comfortable with our kids playing on the beach as some of us set by the pool and could see them perfectly.
 
The staff was excellent and very accommodating. Ruben was always around when you needed him and was helpful in every way. Michele, the owner of the property was wonderful at communicating with me via e-mail and phone prior to our arrival.
 
We will most definitely return to this home and will also suggest it to friends and family.

This house is even better than you can imagine! {Guest: Liz H}

We booked this house through the internet for a surprise 70th birthday week for my father-in-law. As someone who works in the tourism industry I am very well versed in booking travel and vacations and of course has some trepidation in booking a vacation home via the web. From the second we exited the private transfer we had arranged through the home owner all fears were put aside and joy over took us all. The pictures and description do not do this home justice. It was beyond amazing. the location is great as it is in a non-touristy part of Mexico, we were never harassed and we felt beyond safe at all times.
 
Ruben and the staff at the house helped to make our stay. We had dinner made for us almost every night (everyone needs to do this!) which was a great treat and really, really inexpensive. We went sightseeing 2 days but most of the time just ate, drank, read and relaxed by the pool and on the beach. We had a great time watching all the container and navy ships come into port and the sunsets every night we an amazing way to end each great day.
 
There were 8 of us in total and at no point did we feel on top of one another and we all had enough privacy in our rooms to make us still like each other by the end of our week. If you want a relaxing, safe and beautiful alternative to an all-inclusive then this is the house for you. We could not have been more happy with our experience from the time we made the booking to the time we came home (to a snow storm that dropped 50cms on us and made us long to return)
 
As a professional in tourism who has seen it all I give this house and its team an A+, 5 stars or 5 diamonds which ever rating system you use you will not go wrong!
 
Manzanillo may be off the beaten path and a little harder to get to but trust me it is worth it!

Breathtaking beach front villa {Guest: Liska}

My husband and I spent the 2nd week of our honeymoon at Casa Puesta del Sol with 10 friends and had an experience of a lifetime! The villa is beautifully decorated; everything is kept impeccably clean by the staff; and the views are unbelievable! And the flowers and foliage surrounding the property…WOW! It is without a doubt the most beautiful property on the street.
 
Now let’s talk details: The villa is an architectural dream! Beautifully designed and very skillfully decorated. Each and every room had distinctive decorative elements that made them all very unique. The staff: Jeanette, Ruben, Lupita and Oscar were very friendly and helpful. They came in each day to clean the rooms, made sure the grounds and pool were clean and to check on our comfort level and if we needed anything. Ruben would take our list each day and pick up whatever items we needed. It was very convenient for us not having to do excessive running around. The cooking and shopping were extremely reasonable financially. There is a mercado directly across the street from the villa, run by a lovely family. They are open late and have almost everything you would need.
 
We had Jeanette and Lupita cook a traditional mexican dinner and breakfast for us and it was simply delicious. And that’s coming from a “foodie”. I would highly suggest having them cook for you during your stay!
 
The town of Manzanillo is a cultural playground. Wonderful restaurants, namely Toscana’s and Marina Grill. We enjoyed the HUGE meat and produce mercado in downtown, picking up yummy chorizo and accoutrements for the next mornings breakfast. The locals are sooo friendly!
 
We visited Colima, Comala, Melaque, Barra de Navidad, El Salto Falls and Las Hadas. I think my favorite day trip was Barra de Navidad. Beautiful town and GREAT shopping! The waterfall was amazing as was swimming in the lagoon. If you either swim (or tumble) down the small rapids to the 2nd lagoon or walk to your far right along a path taking you through some caves you’ll come across a smaller waterfall that you can stand under, which was pretty exhilarating!
 
Michele, the owner, has a charter business, so a bunch of us went sail-fishing. The captain and crew were great! 4 large sailfish were caught and we kept one and it was absolutely delicious!
 
I could go on, but I’ll close by saying Michele is a delight and very helpful with planning your vacation! We look forward to returning to Casa Puesta del Sol!

Better than the pictures! {Guest: Ninamac}

Finally a property that exceeds the pictures! The house is fantastic and although there were only 6 of us, we easily could have been 12 people and still had lots of room. We stayed 8 days and the amenities, people and the unbelievable sunsets changed our minds about going out for dinner. The staff, Jaime, Ruben and Gris were wonderful, helping us buy fresh fish and shrimps and keeping the place spotless. And, it was so much fun to practice my very poor Spanish with them. We also ventured out of Manzanillo to Barre de Navidad and Colima. It was just enough sightseeing to round out our stay. Not one bad moment! What a relaxing, enjoyable and different holiday. I highly recommend Ron and Michele’s house!

Five Star Idyllic Setting! {Guest: Donna & Bill}

Our seven days at Casa Puesta del Sol were unforgettable! We were a family of 10, with 5 grown children, spouses and one grandchild.
 
The home is stunning with every amenity made available. The open layout of the main floor was conducive to gathering and enjoying meals together, but there were always privates nooks where one could peacefully enjoy a good book or a magnificent sunset. Jaime, Rubin and Gris kept the place spotless and kept everything humming along smoothly. They were so warm and hospitable, it felt like they were part of the family by the middle of the week.
 
From the deep sea fishing charter (the men caught a 8’7″ sailfish) to the in-home massages, to the fabulous meals, each day was an adventure. With transportation from the airport arranged with Raul and easy access to the bus and taxi, we did not miss having a rental car. We loved the “un-touristy” atmosphere of Manzanillo, where the people are friendly and understanding of those of us with rusty Spanish. Michele and Ron have thought of everything at their beautiful home. A highlight of the week was witnessing a hatch of sea turtles right outside the home on the beach and “helping” the little guys in their race to the water…unforgettable! Thank you Michele, it was a privilege to spend a week in paradise at your gorgeous home!

This home is amazing!!! {Guest: Tracy Elizabeth}

We stayed in this home for 6 days and loved every minute of it. It is very large and accomodating and exactly like the description. The kitchen is well-stocked with appliances and the water cooler upstairs with hot water too was a lifesaver for making baby bottles at night. The pool was awesome and the entire feel of the place is tremendously relaxing. Jaime and his staff were very helpful and attentive and the owners were very helpful and accomodating. We recommend driving down to the other bay to play at the beach if you have small kids or non-swimmers. Don’t listen to the locals and go to La Boquita beach. It is at the very end of the second bay and is over-crowded and dirty, but half-way there is a beautiful clean stretch of beach that is flat with gentle waves and quite perfect. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend and if we return to Manzanillo, would definitely stay in this house. Walmart and several other large grocery stores are a short drive away, so we mostly ate in the beautiful home. We grilled outside alot too and the poolside Cabana was very convenient to hang out in and play darts or cards. The views from this home are absolutely magnificent. We loved it!! Tracy

Vacation Paradise {Guest: Utah Girls}

We rented this beautiful home for 8 days and could not have imagined how perfect the experience would be. Every aspect of the home is beautifully designed and decorated. The openness of the kitchen/living area/outdoor patio blends the inside with the outside so perfectly and comfortably. The pool and palapa are wonderful, and of course the beach is fantastic, and only steps away from the pool. This has to be one of, if not the, best beachfront rentals in the area.

The staff is professional, friendly, and accommodating. They helped us arrange outings, a chef, and poolside massage. They kept the house and pool perfectly cleaned and groomed.

There were eight of us in the group and we’re all still talking about how wonderful the experience was. Even though we went out for a few adventures (shopping, snorkeling, etc.) we mostly enjoyed hanging out together at the house. It’s such a comfortable, inviting place to be! We will definitely rent here again.

Everything about this rental experience was outstanding. The owners are easy to work with, the staff was terrific, and best of all, the house is dreamy!

Nothing could have been better {Guest: J&K}

We just got back from an amazing week in Manzanillo!  Nothing could have been better.  Your home is perfect for a group like ours.  Went out fishing for a day and caught about 20+ Dorado’s, spent another day at your recommended beach for the kids, and of course great eats and drinks!  Your staff is amazing, especially Ruben, we would like to adopt him!  Susie and Karen did a great job keeping your home spotless!  We used Angelina 5 of the 7 nights, she also did a terrific job.  We all commented that we have never had such a perfect week!  Thank you again, and if you ever need any type of reference for anything, please use any or all of my family, and especially me!

An unforgettable experience {Guest: Byron}

I like to thank you for renting us your lovely home. Our family reunion in Casa del Sol far exceeded our expectations in terms of comfort, service, location and overall satisfaction. Ruben and Susi were exceptional as well, we were very pleased with their service and willingness to accommodate and make our stay in your home an unforgettable experience. We were discussing our trip to Manzanillo with some of our friends and relatives and they are already interested in renting your home in the near future. Thank you again.

This home is spectacular! {Guest: Amy}

This home is spectacular! The layout is great as the kitchen, living room and dining area are all connected. We were 12 people and never felt crowded.The home is meticulously maintained, both inside and out.  The staff come in each day, but are never intrusive; they are warm and friendly. The area was nice and quiet. The beach was not that user friendly- hard to walk on! But the pool is gorgeous, the views are amazing and watching the ships that come into the port is incredible. We rented a car and are glad we did. There are buses, but we would not have been comfortable taking them at night, nor would I want to haul groceries on the bus. The chef that came to cook dinner the first night we were there did a great job. We cooked two or three dinners ourselves and ate out the other nights. The restaurants were very reasonably priced and the food quite good. The people were incredibly friendly, starting with the house staff and continuing everywhere we went, from the grocery store to the restaurants, all were quite warm and willing to work with us as we tried to speak Spanish. This is a great house. I would recommend it without hesitation.

Beautiful luxury beachfront home {Guest: Amy}

This house is absolutely beautiful! The six bedrooms accommodated our group of twelve perfectly. We loved having the private pool to enjoy as well as the beach, which was perfect for swimming or long walks. The cabana was a favourite hang-out. From the outdoor space we saw lots of shipping/cargo vessels, whales, dolphins and birds. The sunsets are breathtaking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They answered all our questions and provided assistance as needed. The owners were great to work with. They answered our numerous pre-arrival questions promptly. Our fishing charter and in-home spa treatments were arranged at our request by the owner. Both were excellent services. The location of this home is ideal. Public transportation and taxi service are close by, a convenience store across the street and grocery shopping a short drive. It is not a tourist area therefore you will experience the “real” Mexico and not have to fight crowds or be distracted by vendors. The home provides enough gathering space for games and socialising yet ares for private, quiet time as well. We had an amazing family vacation and would highly recommend this vacation home.

AWESOME ALL AROUND {Guest: Elise}

Perfect for our family reunion. We all had our privacy with the ensuite bathrooms and shared/loved the vast openness of the common spaces. No need to rent a car, we used public transport and taxis. The store across the street filled all of our libation needs and more! The house staff was friendly, helpful and gave us our space. I would highly recommend having the house staff take care of all the grocery shopping and cooking..next time we’ll leave it up to them to allow for more downtime. The location of this house is away from the big tourist areas..quiet with very few vendors visiting along the beach. The only noise was later in the evenings at the public beach access site next door. The music was always local and we treated it like it was part of our personal music experience! The owner was very gracious and timely in answering all our questions and my family is anxious to return! I would absolutely recommend this to all my friends. We had 4 children in our group and the pool and enclosed compound made it a dream property for us all.

The house far exceeded our expectations {Guest: Emily}

The vacation was excellent! The house far exceeded our expectations!!
Your attention to detail in the house is amazing– we couldn’t believe all the amenities. And we loved the staff!! They were so helpful and friendly. We had Alberto cook for us two nights, which I would highly recommend to anyone staying at the house. I don’t think there is one thing I would change about the house. However, you may want to add to the website that you do have hair dryers in all the rooms.

My grandmother is wondering where else you have rental properties. Since you are so easy to work with, she’d like to rent from you again if
you have other rental properties.

Thanks for everything!! We will definitely recommend the house to everyone we know wanting to vacation in Mexico.

The house was magnificent {Guest: Larry}

Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Casa Pueta del Sol in Manzanillo. The house was magnificent. The staff was awesome and my family really enjoyed staying there. Do you own or manage the green house next door? Do you own or manage any other beach front properties in Mexico? Thanks for helping us to a spectacular week.

Beyond anything that I could have hoped for {Guest: Andrea}

I just wanted to say Thank you for everything you have done to make our stay in Manzanillo one of the best vacations we have had. I can not say enough good things about your staff. Each and every one of them was always polite, always had a smile on their face and always there to help out when needed. They were above and beyond anything that I could have hoped for. The home itself is absolutely amazing! The view is breath-taking! There are not many places in the world where you can see the ocean, sunset, mountains, and palm trees all at once. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves completely. Thank you again and we hope to work with you again!

Luxury Beach Home has it all! {Guest: Nicole}

This home was beautiful and more than what we expected. It is very new, well maintained and provides just about everything that is needed for a rental. The house staff were exceptional. They catered to whatever our needs and questions were. Having the beach right outside and a lovely pool was the best of both worlds. The beach was not a high traffic area so we were not bothered by tons of vendors. The vendors that we did see, were respectful and courteous. You could walk for miles along the shore or just enjoy the incredible view. From the yard we watched whales, birds, a vast selection of large shipping vessel, small fishing boats etc. The district that the house is located in is quiet and convenient. Bus stop, store, small local restaurants are all just across the street. Lots of parking for rental vehicles. This was real Mexico – not a tourist pit stop. The owners of the home did their very best in answering all of our multitudes of questions before we arrived and also followed up with us once we did arrive. They even got in touch with us after the holiday was over to ask our opinions. Nice touch!

WORLD CLASS HOME {Guest: Rod}

We would like to thank you again for the wonderful visit we had to your home in Manzanillo. We knew from the pictures that it would be very nice, but we were all bowled over by how incredible it really is…you should be very proud of it, as it is a world class home. We have been lucky to see many great locations in our travels as a family, but even we have never been to a place that combines the home, the services, and the location so well into one package. We had so much fun riding the bus around town and getting to know the locals, and we can see why Manzanillo has so much appeal for you. Marilu and her staff are excellent…very efficient but never in the way. You can tell that they really enjoy working with you, as they are always happy to help the guests, whether its with directions, travel suggestions, or with our “broken’ Spanish. We loved every minute of our visit to your home, and we are already looking forward to another visit in 2009.Once again, thanks again for your incredible hospitality.
