We have Iwo private entrances for those who wish to go directly up to their bedrooms or enter the main area where one can go directly to the main patio and pool area. The main entrance opens with large folding doors and two large 6-ft hand carved Cantera stone gods that welcome our visitors and keep them safe. All through the villa there are beautiful paintings and art work for your pleasure.

Sleep in and awaken at your leisure to the aromas of tropical flowers and the morning songs of tropical birds. Parrots flock back and forth during the day over our villa. At twilight, sitting on the patio or under the large beautiful palapa or any where in the villa one can enjoy a favorite drink of the evening while the "cocktail birds" fly in to nest on the tropical surroundings of the the beautiful lagoon. In the morning, they gather their flock and go out to feast on fish in the ocean. The sunrises and sunsets are a wonder to see.

Avocado, lime, banana, papaya, mango trees as well as coconut palms and many tropical exotic plants make our villa a secluded paradise yet easily accessible to restaurants, beautiful beaches, breathtaking coastlines with crashing waves against rugged cliffs.

Papaya and mangos are a daily treat as well; all kinds of tropical fruit that grow in our garden. Connie, our house keeper and mgr., arrives early and is always ready to help or assist you. What a jewel. Nothing is left undone.She will wash and iron your clothes and organize whatever you ask her to do. Your wish is her command. Linens and towels are changed constantly and the bathrooms are spotless- Augustine takes care of the pool and garden and will assist you with anything you might request.

IT TRULY IS A HOME AWAY FROM HOME and a RETREAT. Come join us for a fiesta, a wedding, a honeymoon, or just vacation and have it catered with tables set up: the grill waiting for the chef; whether it is you or a hired chef. The patio is 1700 or more sq, ft and lots of lights surround it plus the deck around the pool adds comfort when one wants to get away from every one. The fountain, with its addtional deck joins the main terrace, not only attracts tropical birds but is a soothing and peaceful place to relax and read or just listen to the sounds of the jungle and bay. Very romantic Villa with many captivating views and spaces to retreat. Come and enjoy!!

The weather is perfect and our Villa is like a tree top overlooking the beautiful jungle, lagoon, bay, and steps away from the crashing waves, plus mountains. "Some places are memorable for things to do, and some for things to see, but a few have the special magic and the memory lives forever since you have experienced all this beauty we offer you."
Avocado, lime, banana, papaya, mango trees as well as coconut palms and many tropical exotic plants make our villa a secluded paradise yet easily accessible to restaurants, beautiful beaches, breathtaking coastlines with crashing waves against rugged cliffs.

Ideal location for snorkeling, scuba diving, sport fishing, windsurfing, bird watching, jogging or just daydreaming. Great for families, reunions or several couples to celebrate Holidays together.

The ultimate tropical dreamhousev

June 15, 2011

We have stayed at Copa de Oro for at least fifteen years..at least once and as many as three times a year we go to this truly magnificent Mexican get away. The floor plan is perfect for a couple or an extended family... each bedroom is a delightFul design and affords the occupant(s) complete privacy. The gardens, grounds and pool area are fit for a palace and the views from everywhere in and around the property spectacular. The interiors are well appointed and the walls are covered with beautiful works of art mostly painted by the mistress of the villa. As if that isn't enough the rental includes day passes to the nearby Club Santiago with access to a world class beach and all member privileges. It is the best vacation rental we have ever found and with an affordable price...it is our number 1 choice every year

Paradise? Yes. A Little Piece of Heaven? You Bet

June 15, 2011

If you're looking for paradise and a relaxing vacation all rolled into one experience, this is the place. From the gorgeous sunsets, to the outstanding views, you would have to try hard to not love this place. This is a great place to relax and have some R&R while having all the amenities of Mexico right at your fingertips. The beach is a nice stroll down the mountain and there are tons of great restaurants and hide outs. Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, or a beach comber, there is something everyone can enjoy. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an excellent stay without being bogged down by tourist traps that other Mexican destinations are famous for. It's truly a unique and magical experience!

Pure Relaxation

June 14, 2011

What a beautiful retreat! Thank you for keeping your house in such wonderful condition. I am always impressed with the yearly renovations - the upstairs palapa and then the master bathroom! The highlight of my stay is waking up to jungle noises and the sunrise over the bay. I truly experience "pure relaxation" at your peaceful abode. Thank you!!!

Amazing Golfing, Beaches, Nightlife, & Relaxation

June 14, 2011

You'll love Copa de Oro in Manzanillo! It's a private rental available from Peter and Luz Gallagher, who are easy to work with and the house provides an incredible value. The house is well appointed in every respect, with spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, dining and lounging areas, full palapa with evening breezes, internet access and swimming pool (plus a maid for cleaning, laundry and housekeeping!). You are a short walk to the beach (good for morning exercise) but feel like you're far enough away to have privacy and quiet. Views are spectacular of the bay and Manzanillo. With the house comes full access to the beach club in Santiago, with relaxing beach access, waiters, cervezas and delicious Mexican food. There are several golf courses within one hour drive, including a nine hole course in Santiago (5 minutes away), a devilish Pat Dye course in Las Hadas (20 minutes away), and two world class courses near Isla de Navidad, the Grand Bay course of 27 holes (3 nine hole courses: ocean, lagoon and mountain) and a spectacular Pebble Beach equivalent 18 hole private course owned by the founder of Banamex. You can't go wrong at Copa de Oro!

My stay there was fantastic! I had so much fun playing on the beach. The palapa is a great retreat for a siesta in the heat of the day. The home is beautiful and comfortable.

The perfect vacation, the perfect retreat

June 1, 2011

This destination is perfect for a quiet retreat, an active vacation, or a little of both. The home is enchanting and is so comfortable that you might feel inclined to spend your entire vacation at the villa. But if you want to explore there is plenty more to see and do, including beach activities, ocean sports and plenty of fun trendy night clubs and bars for festive drinks and dancing.

Paradise

Our family has enjoyed this "touch of heaven" for 20 years and seen the progress revolve into the most comfortable villa in Manzanillo. The sunrises are outstanding and belong in the movies. Forget the real world and enjoy paradise.
