About this listing

A truly wonderful 3 bedroom condo with all the amenities you could need. The view is amazing and one of the best in Manzanillo!

The space

Manzanillo, Mexico... Come visit one of the most beautiful places in the world, where there is always a tropical breeze and the weather is superb. Our spacious, comfortable, and well equipped three bedroom condo with an extended balcony, is conveniently located between Las Hadas and Karmina Palace. We never get over the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, neither will you!

The oversized master bedroom occupies the whole second floor with its own private bathroom en suite. The two spacious bedrooms on the main floor, both with king-size beds, share a bathroom. All the linens are 100% cotton sheets and the designer towels are soft and luxurious.

The open living and dining area with a very well equipped kitchen leads out on to the balcony giving you superb views day and night. Eat inside or out on the deck, whatever suits your mood. Watch Netflix in the flat screen TV on those nights you stay in. Everything you could need is on hand. This 1600 sq. ft. condo is one of the nicest in the area!

Walk down to the secluded and vendor-free beach to swim, snorkel or just relax and read a good book. You can walk along the beachside path and go to either Las Hadas or Karmina Palace for drinks or lunch or dinner. You can even access Manzanillo Bay for miles of beach walking by passing through Karmina Palace. Dolphin Cove Inn is right next door and shares the same beach. Their restaurant is just a few steps away and is convenient when you do not feel like cooking.

The Riviera Mar property is beautifully maintained, with colourful flowers everywhere, as you walk down the stairs. It is run by a full-time english speaking manager, Juan, with a private pool and lots of additional staff to make sure that your vacation is great.

We fell in love with this place.... we know you will too! All this convenience and less expensive than a hotel!

Guest access

The pool is shared by the owners of the condo complex.
The water is purified on the peninsula and is safe, however if you wish to have a large bottle of water delivered to the condo prior to your arrival, it needs to be arranged in advance. The cost for a bottle is available for a nominal amount.
There are stairs from the condo down to the pool (2 flights) and beach, as my condo is on the top floor of the middle building. This property is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

Interaction with guests

The staff at RivieraMar are available to assist with any questions or concerns that you may have. I am also easily reachable by email or phone to help as well.

Katrines gem in a private bay was perfect for 4 of us with large comfortable beds, lots of closet space and 2 washrooms for quick and easy freshen ups. All beautifully decorated in local style and has every amenity you could need. (Of course a blender for those icy drinks.) The large deck has amazing views of the bay and was perfect for sunrises, sunsets and star gazing. Although there are a lot of steps to the beach, the pool is right below the unit and always quiet and private, and the stairs and areas are very well maintained and you'll find many landings to rest and flower gaze. The beach is usually calm and perfect for snorkeling or simply enjoying. You'll find an excellent variety of books to read...The building is very central to everything, the buses are handy and readily available and taxis are also everywhere - the people are typically very friendly and helpful. (Very little English spoken!) This condo truly felt like home and was hard to leave. Katrine was a wonderful host providing all information we needed and extra tips that added to our fun. We'd stay there again without question! Paradise...

Katrine's condo has a spectacular view from the oversize balcony. It is one of the largest balconies and because her building is in the middle of the complex and the condo on the top floor, the panorama offered is incredible. We spent hours on the balcony. The condo is large enough to accommodate 6 people easily and each bedroom is huge. Lots of closet space. Close to the pool, down one level. Never busy, it is like your own private pool. The complex is quiet, people respectful and friendly. The beach is also like your own private beach. Crystal clear water, great for snorkeling and swimming and very warm. Quiet location with no noisy parties. Bus stops outside your door, close to great shopping and Santiago open air market. Although no air conditioning, it is not needed because the cross draft and breezes are sufficient. Juan Llamas and all the staff are super friendly, helpful, and go above and beyond. Katrine's condo would be great for a family and/or friends vacation. One of the most relaxing vacations we have had. We were there for a month. Thanks, Katrine.

Katrine’s condo has the best view of any condo or resort that we have stayed at. The condo is huge and had ample space for the four of us. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had all our breakfasts in and cooked a few evening meals including the tuna we caught on our fishing trip. Katrine has installed a new washer which we used a couple of times. Yes, there are lots of stairs but this was not an issue for us. The Las Hadas golf course is only a short walk downhill from the condo and has a two for one special Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The construction project next door was basically stalled during our two week stay so there were no construction noise issues. The Condo Manager, Juan was very helpful with providing us with information and directions and he arranged our return taxi to the airport.

Yes, the view is spectacular, however the beach is WAY down going down several flights of stairs. There is no elevator. One of our members had ankle injuries in July previous to March booking and this was problematic. We were travelling with teenagers and no WiFi was available. The water heating system can not accommodate more than three short showers. We were disappointed.

We had a great time staying in Katrine's condo in Manzanillo. Everything about it was better than described or the pictures could show. Katrine has done an excellent job making the condo feel both spacious and cozy. The 3 bedrooms were HUGE, with excellent king-size mattresses and beautiful furnishings. The openness of the comfortable living area/dining table/kitchen with peninsula was welcoming, and Katrine's personal touches made it feel like we were staying with an old friend. But the best was the incredible view of the ocean -- nice to stay inside with a cup of hot chocolate and watch the clouds and rain, even better to relax in the comfortable chaise longues or have lunch at the table on that amazing terrace. Katrine, John, and Jose all were welcoming and eager to offer any information or assistance to make our stay special. FYI, we were 5, ranging in age from 32-62, and all were sorry to leave. We'd go back again in a heartbeat. If that's not enough encouragement, the architecture and landscaping is such that you feel like you've landed in a private, luxurious garden. The pool was beautiful, tucked away a bit, a great place to frolic with friends on a sunny afternoon, or drift about floating on your back while watching the night sky. Two notes of concern might be worth pointing out, though not meant to discourage: there are LOTS of stairs, both from the parking area down to the condo level, and even more from there to the gate to the beach (over 100). They are wide, well-made, and well-lit; still, arthritic knees had a bit of a struggle.

Katrine was very friendly and extremely helpful. She provided us with lots of information and was quick to respond to all of our questions. The condo was beautiful and looked just like the photos on Airbnb. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The washer/dryer was not working but the condo manager offered to have our laundry done for us. The staff at Riviera Mar were great! The small beach in front of the condo was really nice for swimming and snorkelling. I was pleasantly surprised at how warm the water was. It was easy to catch buses to shop for food, go to the markets in Manzanillo and Santiago or to venture further afield to Playa Miramar, Colima or Melaque. We felt safe wherever we went. Some of the evening music from the nearby all-inclusive was interesting but it didn't continue too late The one downside was the construction next door to the condo but Katrine told us about it before we arrived. All in all we had a great time.

I am extremely lucky to have two super vacation properties that I rent when I am not able to be there myself. I am not yet retired, still a long way to go, so cannot spend as much time in my two homes as I would like! I have also recently moved to Toronto and have a wonderful studio apartment for rent in Cabbagetown.

I grew up in Montreal and love getting away to Tremblant for the weekend, so I purchased a fantastic little cottage right next to the old village area. I can walk to restaurants and shops, and also go cross country skiing or biking right outside my door.

I visited Manzanillo for the first time for New Years January 2002 and absolutely fell in love with the area. I enjoyed it so much that I brought my son down for a two week summer vacation. That lead to looking at real estate during our trip and we thoroughly covered the two bays to find what we thought would suit us best. When we stepped out onto the deck and saw the view, we knew that Riviera Mar was the place for us. We have made wonderful friends with the owners in the complex and it is truly our second home.
