I would stay here again. Was well described. Plenty of space and especially liked the patio. The owner was easy to work with. Lots of beach towels, dishes, spices, pots and pans. Even baking supplies. Good supply of games.
Very Nice Condo
The condo is just as described and as shown in the video. The kitchen is well set up and we really enjoyed the enclosed court yard in the back yard. The owner was great to deal with and the condo manager Anny was very helpful. The condo development is safe, clean and well maintained. And we liked that it was only a 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach and had easy connection via local bus to all the main tourist areas of Mazatlan. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
A minor annoying issue.
The internet was just OK. Almost every day it would be ON first thing in the morning and then go OFF until about 4 or 5 in the afternoon and then come ON again. It was also completely OFF for about 8 days in our 6 week stay. So no TV as it only works via internet and no connection if you rely on it for connecting for business or family while you are away. Thankfully when we explained our problem to the condo association manager he let us connect to the WIFI at the pool, as we had some important things to deal with back home on days the internet was not working. I suppose this would be OK for people who have Cell phones and can connect that way, but we did not have this option.
Beautiful Townhouse in Mazatlan
My two children and I spent the month of August 2014 at this property and I would highly recommended.
The location is excellent. You are very close to the beach and the bus route to take you into downtown Mazatlan.
The property is in a gated community with security guards who monitor closely the comings and going of the residents and guests. I felt incredibly safe. Those who live in the community were incredibly friendly and helpful for the duration of our stay.
Robert was an incredible owner and did everything in his power to ensure we had a great time. I plan to rent this home again It's an excellent value.
We loved it!
My wife and I took a leap of faith spending a month in Mazatlan Mexico last spring; our leap was rewarded with a singular life experience. Our stay was in this exceptional vacation rental which we found perfect in every way; and the community, Villa Marina, is safe, convenient, clean, accommodating and charming! For their part, the condo's owners are responsive, considerate and professional. We are so pleased and satisfied that February 2015 is booked!

charming townhouse rental
This townhouse was exactly as described. Great location, nice pool, close to bus stop, great caretaker-Annie, and homey-feeling house.
Thanks for the great review, but pets are not allowed.
On the grounds, the townhouse condo has a large swimming pool, clubhouse, a small exercise room, and walking track. The townhouse condo is across the street from a major resort (Mayan Sea Garden), where you can enter as a visitor and pay for the resort's beach activities (parachute towed by a boat, boogie boarding, aquatics, etc.), or you can use the cash (ATM) machine. You can also pay a small fee to use the gym at the Mayan Sea Garden, which has a full range of exercise equipment.
Down in the El Centro part of Mazatlan, there is an open-air market selling all kinds of fresh foods and goods. There is also the Angela Peralta Theatre where ballets, operas and other cultural arts are performed. In the Golden Zone, there are night clubs, restaurants, and souvenir shopping.
At the new marina just 5 minutes away, you can play 18 holes of golf or take out a boat for fishing.
Fun things to do all over Mazatlan include shopping for pottery, jewelry (especially silver), and many other hand-made goods; going sport fishing and deep sea fishing; visiting the acquarium; going to the water park (when in season); taking boat trips to Stone Island or Deer Island or to see sea lions or for a sunset cruise; eating fresh seafood (shrimp, fish, octopus, clams, oysters); visiting the sea shell museum; and taking side trips to small towns like El Quelite.
It's easy to get to wherever you want to in Mazatlan from our condo. Just walk outside of the development and hop into a bus, a taxi, a pulmonia, or a red truck--without waiting more than a couple minutes.
