About the property

Stunning Newly Remodeled 4 Bedroom, 7 Bath Villa. Sleeps 8 - 10.

This newly remodeled and just listed 5,000 sq. ft. villa plus casita is perched atop of Peninsula de Santiago with views of the entire Santiago Bay and the mountains beyond. The outside terrace, pool, bar and BBQ make this a place you want to call home. The four bedrooms are beautifully decorated with ensuite bathrooms. There are two master suites with king beds, a bedroom with a queen bed and a separate suite with 2 queen beds, and living area with TV . The main floor hosts the kitchen and dining area which is perfect for an easy breakfast or gourmet meal. Enjoy cable TV or movies in the family room, connect to wi-fi or just watch the pelicans glide by. In addition there is a 450 square foot casita situated just below the main house where you can lay out your yoga mat, relax for the day or enjoy cocktails at sunset. It is equipped with a wet bar, fridge, bath and shower. You can actually see the fish swim in the tide pools below and at night you can light up the surf. The property is staffed with a housekeeper/private chef. While the famous Audiencia Beach is just a 5 minute walk, you probably won't want to leave. This lovely property offers an incredible view from every room and the sunsets are spectacular. Please go to our video link to get a bird's eye view of your next dream vacation.

Why Mary Catherine chose Penínsulas de Santiago

We purchased this property because we could not get over the view. It's incredible and you never tire of looking at it. We named the villa "Pelicanos" because the pelicans, frigates and other birds glide gracefully by at eye level. The sea below is so blue and clear that from the terrace you can see fish and other sea life. During the season you can spot whales breaching and spouting right there from poolside. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kathie and I along with our guests experienced true, relaxing paradise when we visited your fabulous villa, Pelicanos, this past March. The view was spectacular and expertly matched by the service and friendliness of the staff. Having a chef, bartender and daily maid service really spoiled all of us. The view from the deck directly facing the bay and the incredible sunsets made us long for the next day and the adventures to come. The home is inviting, comfortable, very spacious, expertly decorated and totally first class on all levels. Your concierge helped us with a private, English speaking driver who was courteous and very knowledgeable of the local highlights, history, and shopping spots. We will definitely return to Manzanillo and Pelicanos. What a fabulous way to unwind. Thank you for your hospitality and for making your home available.

Beautiful view, amazing staff and lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this property as well as Manzanillo to anyone. My husband and I stayed for 9 days and will absolutely be rebooking soon. The housekeeper/cook, Flor, was wonderful and her husband Hugo was very friendly. Flor is professional and kind. She was there when we needed her with any needs and respectful of our privacy. She kept us well fed and the property looking immaculate. Mary and Douglas were very helpful as we were preparing for our trip as well as during our stay. We highly recommended a massage and facial on property, which Flor scheduled for us. We watched dolphins and rays from the patio as well as from the casita several mornings. At no point did we feel anything but secure in the house, Manzanillo and surrounding areas. We enjoyed the large pool daily as well as the entire outdoor living space. The rooms were comfortable with terrific views. The pictures on VRBO are entirely accurate and if anything they do not do the size of the spaces justice. It was only two of us but we could easily have brought our daughters and their families and had plenty of space. Thank you to Mary, Douglas, Flor and Hugo for making it a memorable vacation and we will see you soon.

Sincerely, Shannon and Dennis Kirby

We highly recommend this beautiful, luxurious home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this spectacular hillside home in Manzanillo. It truly has a bird's eye view of the bay below and the sunsets were to die for. Each room had a breathtaking view and balcony to enjoy it from. We went with two other couples and four of our grandchildren and the house accommodated us without a hitch. The home is large enough to allow you to escape those you are sharing it with when need be. The staff were fantastic, the food wonderful and the service excellent. We would recommend this listing to all. The owner also sent us to the Pacifica Del Mar Restaurant which we loved. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this wonderful location and home! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place on the coastline! Beautiful, well kept, gorgeous views, a casita on the point that is perfect for yoga or meditating and feeling the wind, but also has a stunning brick ceiling masterfully crafted in a large rectangle archway. Simply perfect! Magnificent art and furniture. Movie stars would love this stunning home! The owners paid attention to all details. The staff was first rate and always smiling and served whatever we chose. It was always done on time, and tasted Great! Thank you all. Best of all our daughter got engaged here so it will stay in our heart forever and we will be back!

Not only was the place extra special with amazing sunsets, but the people were simply wonderful. Flor's cooking was terrific; Belen's smile was contagious, Hugo managed the heavy things and Allen our driver was extraordinaire. We couldn't have been more pleased. The room at the bottom of the steps was our yoga headquarters and massage center. Thanks to Mary Catherine for sharing this beautiful home!!!

What a breathtaking property !

  • 5 of 5

There are no words that describes the beauty and the serenity of this property. Our stay at Pelicanos went above and beyond our expectations . The calm and peaceful atmosphere and the views from every single square inch of the property was simply amazing. We could not get enough of the spectacular sunsets and the sound of the crashing waves , while enjoying margaritas in the lower casita. The staff is very professional yet very personable. The food they prepared for us was to die for and by the end of our stay we considered them family . This will definitely be our "go to" place without hesitation. .

The owners are very gracious and are always available to answer any questions that you may have. I highly recommend staying at Pelicanos. It's a little slice of Heaven.

Unforgettable View

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property. The view down on the ocean is spectacular with the most brilliant sunsets. We stayed in a room below the pool that projects out into the ocean. It was so special to sleep with the windows open and hear the ocean breeze and breaking waves. Our friends stayed in the main house and were also impressed. Flor the cook and house keep totally spoils you with Mexican food. A car and driver were available for a modest fee and they arranged golf and day excursions for us. This is an amazing place. The owner, Doug, visited and made sure all was in order. He also provided information about the best restaurant in town, Pacifica (must go and meet chef Wolfgang).
