Our home

Casa Maya is a wonderful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath villa in a community of 42 homes. Perched on a hill, Casa Maya has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and Santiago Bay. A 20 minute walk brings you to miles of sandy beach where you'll find many great restaurants and artisans selling their wares. The pool is stunning with a huge palapa area for entertaining and outdoor dining. There's lots to do and see in close proximity to our area. Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer as well as internet and cable TV. Our wonderful gardener and pool man, Julio, comes six afternoons a week and his adorable wife, Elisabeth, cleans once a week.

Who we are

  1. We have, just recently, become full timers in Manzanillo but have been doing home exchanges during the more humid months of August though October. This last summer and early fall we did 7, back to back, home exchanges in Iceland, Europe and Turkey and had an incredible time. We feel fortunate that we are in a position to do simultaneous as well as non-simultaneous exchanges and can even host you in our home if we are here. Bill is a retired college chemistry professor and I am still working as a mortgage banker but can do my work from here and, for that matter, anywhere, as long as I have internet. Hoping, however, to retire in the next year or two.
    We are both fun loving, adventurous, love to cook and garden (we have an amazing cactus garden here in Mexico) and are open for just about anything. Bill's been doing home exchanges for 30 years and has had nothing but great experiences.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Casa Maya is located on the upper part of the Juluapan Peninsula and is about 20 minutes south of the Manzanillo Airport. Our closest small town is Santiago, an authentic Mexican pueblo with very little US influence, and is about a 15 minute drive from the house. There's a central market, lots of little hole in the wall local places to eat and a few little gift shops.

Downtown Manzanillo is about another 15 minutes away and is more bustling and boasts of the largest port in Mexico. Between the two, there are endless fabulous restaurants to choose from ranging from a $3 meal on up.

Our local beach, Santiago Bay, is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive and is our favorite place to hang out. It's always festive and you can sit for hours drinking beer and eating fresh fish and taking an occasional dip in the ocean.

Then, going North about 40 minutes, you'll come to Barra de Navidad, an extremely charming and a little more commercial small town on the ocean. There's lots of great places to eat and many places to shop for pottery, jewelry, tablecloths, clothing, hammocks, and many other treasures.

If you're staying for more than a week, Guadalajara is about a four hour trip by car or bus (air-conditioned and very comfortable and only $35). There's so much to do and see in this area...museums, historical old town, incredible artisans, furniture, food,just to name a few. Colima, the capital, is a little over an hour away and is also filled with museums, historical colonial plazas, great food and more.

Manzanillo is considered the sailfish capital of the world so, of course, deep sea fishing is available in addition to snorkeling, parasailing and scuba diving. If you're a golfer, there are numerous courses in the area, two of them, world class. If tennis is your passion, there's at least three courts fairly close by.

So, the Manzanillo area has something for everyone, whether it's relaxing in the sun and doing nothing, or spending your time on the go, or anything in between.
