Our home

Hablo español tambien. Our home is new and has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. There are 4 bedrooms (each with ensuite) over 3 floors. The upper floor is the entertaining area and has a palapa (thatched) roof over the living room, and an infinity pool.

There is Travertine marble throughout and granite in all 6 bathrooms. The furniture is all Rattan imported from Indonesia.

The bedrooms are located on the two lower levels. It is super quiet here - the only noise you hear are the birds and the ocean!

We have a maid that works 3 days a week, plus a gardener/pool guy that is also in 5 days a week.

Who we are

  1. I am Glen (49) and my partner is Ross (53). We quite often travel with another couple, and they would be with us for at least part of the exchange.

    We have a cat named Pelusa (Fuzzy) that lives outside and on the upper floor of the house - if you could put food out for her, we would appreciate it.

    We keep our house spotlessly clean, and would do the same with yours.

    ****Please note that we are not interested in exchanging to anywhere cold - we moved to the tropics for a reason!****

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in a private, exclusive, gated community called La Punta on a peninsula between the two main bays of Manzanillo. The amenities include 24/7 security, a private beach, beach club, tennis courts, and tennis club. Not to mention that the neighbourhood is absolutely gorgeous! Here is the website for the neighbourhood: http://www.lapuntacondo.com/la_punta.html

Manzanillo has an international airport and is the largest port on the Pacific coast of Mexico. It also has the largest naval base on the Pacific. Tourism is an industry here, but the majority of tourists are Mexicans from Guadalajara (3 hours drive away) and Mexico City (1 hour flight away). Accordingly, Manzanillo has retained a very Mexican flavor.

There are world-class golf courses in the area, and we are only 5 minutes from the Las Hadas Golf course. Isla Navidad Golf Course is about an hour's drive north of here: http://www.islanavidad.com/golf/index.asp . Also, El Tamarindo is the #2 rated golf course in Mexico and is about 1 1/4 hours north of Manzanillo: http://eltamarindoresort.info/

There are great restaurants and many activities to keep you as busy as you want (or not!). These include scuba, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, beach sports, ziplining and more. There are 2 major supermarkets within 5 minutes drive away (Comercial Mexicana and Walmart Supercentre). I have a list of activities and restaurants waiting for you.

We would love to do a car exchange, but our cars are imported and Mexican law prohibits other people from driving them. We do, however, know several very reliable taxi drivers that speak English - taxis are very, very cheap here, BTW.

Guadalajara is 200 KM (3 hours) away and is the second largest city in Mexico. There is great shopping and lots of historical sights to take in. We know a great B&B that you can stay at to explore the city if you choose to do a side trip (well worth it!).
