About Rory Pike

Our home was one of the original built in the beautiful community of La Punta twenty five years ago. As such, it was a prime location with outstanding views and unrivaled privacy. Upon purchase in 2009, we hired a contractor who spoke only Spanish and the adventure began! ( neither Rory nor I speak Spanish, but we're learning!) Our permanent home is in Canada, so needless to say, there were a great many emails!

The Villa has been completely renovated, refurnished and renamed. The inspiration came from our many, much loved trips to Italy. It was these travels and memories that inspired the "old world " feel of Villa Casablanca. Our vision was to evoke a sense of classic, but comfortable elegance. All of the furniture was custom built in Guadalajara by amazing craftsmen. All of the upholstery and bed coverings were designed and also custom made in Guadalajara. We are still adding to the Villa and see it as a work in progress. Throughout this adventure we have met some wonderful people and have developed some treasured friendships. We love the warmth of the Mexican people, the culture, the ocean and the savory Mexican foods.

We wish you a wonderful holiday and hope that you experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. So, put your feet up, sip on a margarita and enjoy Villa Casablanca and the magnificent views of Manzanillo Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen!

Rory Pike purchased this villa in 2009

What makes this villa unique

The staff at Villa Casablanca are quite simply outstanding. Our guest book reflects this with every weeks comments.

The other thing that separate this villa are the views. They are completely unobstructed and we are at an elevation which makes you feel like you can touch the water while offering the advantage of enough height to provide a fantastic perspective on Manzanillo Bay and the mountains in the background.

The night time views are equally as captivating as the daytime views as we face Manzanillo Bay. If you face out to sea, views disappear with the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‎Hi Rory and Kim



Just wanted to touch base and let you know we had another fantastic week at Villa Casablanca!!!



Manzanillo is a hidden gem!!! The people are proud, kind, hard working and exceptionally friendly!



‎ We enjoyed, the massages and silver shopping at the Villa, golf, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, an ATV tour, a sunset cruise, many walks on the beach and finding little places to enjoy a cerveza or margarita, spoiled by local hospitality!!!



The La Punta community is beautiful and we loved walking through the streets, taking in views from different areas. ‎We even got to go through 2 open houses, affirming the beauty we have come to love from Villa Casablanca!!!!



Rosario, Any, Carmen and Rafael are beyond words!!!! Their endless professionalism and eagerness to please is what truly makes your place top notch! We had many tears saying goodbye!



Freddy and ALL his staff at Haro Tours are equally amazing, hard working, friendly and reliable!!! Freddy is doing very well getting his ATV business up and running and our crew were the first to blaze the new trails!!! They loved it!!!!



You are very well known in the community as being fabulous owners and having the best staff :)



We are certain we will return again next February! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing slice of heaven with us!!!

50th Wedding Anniversary- Oh the fun we had!

  • 5 of 5

Oh what an amazing time we had at the Villa! The house was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. There were 10 of us in total and everyone had loads of space. The suites were large and comfortable. The staff was amazing and attentive and every member of my family had an wonderful trip. Rafa was always there with a drink and a smile, (best margaritas ever!) Rosario wowed us with her culinary talents, and desserts, oh... the desserts (keylime pie please). She also made a custom meal as per my parent's request for their 50th anniversary dinner. Yum. Carmen was always helpful with any questions or concerns we had and Lucieda was the life of the party, always singing and dancing while she worked.

Another highlight of our trip was our driver Alan. What a prize! He was like a genie in the bottle making all our wishes and dreams come true. From finding us a guitar, an artist and a four person band to perform at the anniversary dinner to taking us to the local rodeo (dance) and then onto and through the ruins in Colima (who knew Colima had ruins), ordering the "teenagers" mariachi band in Comala, jalapeño picking on an ATV tour, fishing with a local fisherman and the now family favourite...his now famous “Taco Tour”. Fantastic tour guide and genie!

Thank you to everyone who made this a trip of a lifetime and an amazing 50th anniversary for my parents. We will be back.

A Week Living like the Rich & Famous!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Villa Casablanca last week with 8 of my book club friends. We were all very impressed with the food, service and the villa itself. The villa manager arranged for pick up at the airport and we were greeted with an air conditioned van and Corona on ice. In 30 min and we were at the Villa. When we arrived to La Punta community we had to show our passports to get past 24 hr gate showing that they take security very seriously. When we arrived the staff welcomed us with a cocktail in the magnificent foyer overlooking the ocean. We were then given a tour and picked our rooms. All the bedrooms are large and have a great view.

Rosario, the chef, made us breakfast, lunch, dinner and an afternoon snack every day. The hardest part of the trip was deciding what food to pick from Rosario's wide range of menu items! We loved every meal - so fresh and flavorful!

Whenever we needed a drink, Rafael, was at our service. His Margaritas are fabulous! Rafael went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed at the villa.

We enjoyed the pool everyday which is maintained by Rafael. The villa is very quiet and clean. We didn’t hear or see any neighbours. The villa staff speak good English, which made it easy to communicate. The beach is quiet with some surf as you enter the water. Once past the surf, it is easy to swim.

The Villa owners are very responsive and friendly. They did a great job of giving us all the information needed to get ready for our stay. And they went out of their way to help us out when our original flight got cancelled and we had to rearrange our departure date.

We would definitely return to the Villa Casablanca!

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable. The staff- Rosario,Carmen, Rafael, and Leticia were amazing. Very helpful and attentive. La Punta is a very nice area. Felt secure. La Punta private beach was very nice especially with being there during the very busy Easter holidays. A few of us did walks into manzanillo and Santiago. We felt safe. We booked a 3 hr fishing trip with the help of Rafael. We caught black tuna, Mahi Mahi, and 1 mackerel. While fishing we saw 2 great whales, school of manta rays and pod of dolphins. Great time and we had enough fish for two meals. The eight of us had a fantastic vacation and would recommend to others.

Absolutely amazing !

  • 5 of 5

This was a first for me , a girls trip away and being a private villa .

I always felt being at a resort was the greatest way to vacation , that was until this trip, what an incredible place. I have vacationed in various hotels and all inclusive resorts and the Villa has far surpassed my previous vacations. The Villa is even more beautiful than the photos, close to town for shopping and getting the small town feel of the locals, excellent buys on jewellery and potter and many more finds. I was impressed with our food selections for all our meals,absolutely delicious! The villa was extremely clean,and our manager and all the staff could not have done any more to exceed my expectations. The pool area is spectacular with lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade if wanted. I was very happy to have easy access to the beach along with foods beverages of choice activities,chairs and huts for shade. the beach was also cleaned and raked everyday. All the bedrooms have their own air conditioning so u can control your own comfort. Each room is very large with a great sitting area with never ending beautiful scenery. Villa Casablanca may have been a well kept secret but not anymore as i will tell all my friends and relatives about this special place in the Manzanillo sunshine!!!!!!!

Awesome Villa Casabkanca

  • 5 of 5

Casablanca will Wow you!

From being welcomed by Raffa with Margareta's for all, the amazing views,the spacious clean, beautifully decorated Villa to the unforgettable sunrises.

The friendly staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and were at our beck and call.

The meals were delicious and made fresh to our requests.

The private beach surprised us with many clean amenities like showers,washrooms,palapas, and a beautiful large pool so you can spend the day at the beach in comfort.

Villa Casablanca exceeded our expectations and highly recommended.
