Casa la Raffaella
You are invited to join us and enjoy the beauty, quality service, and unabashed luxury, that defines Casa La Raffaella. We look forward to your stay with us.
Words cannot adequately describe the exquisite design of this 10,000 sq.ft. Mediterranean style villa on the shores of Mexico’s Pacific Ocean.
Situated in the exclusive enclave of “La Punta”, an incredible master planned community, that is, in turn, cleverly located between the twin Bays of Manzanillo and Santiago, our villa reflects a precious balance between intelligent architectural design and the brilliance of nature’s offerings.
The house offers breathtaking views from every angle, including all of the suites, the spacious open-air living and dining rooms, and the fully equipped gym. Whether you are looking to satisfy your fitness regimen by taking a jog or by walking amidst the lush vegetation and local blossoms, the multitude of outdoor amenities are easily accessible from most areas of the house.
Each bedroom is air-conditioned, complemented by a ceiling fan, and each is equipped with a beautiful en-suite bathroom. The Master and VIP suites have their own living room area, and a private terrace completes their luxurious design. Three other eye-catching bedrooms enjoy a shared furnished patio. The stylish furnishings and interior design of Casa La Raffaella blend harmoniously with the unique beauty of this “hidden jewel”. Manzanillo, clearly, is the best kept secret in all of Mexico!
A multitude of culinary delights await your palate. For formal dining, the villa offers seating for 12 in a refined dining room atmosphere, or, make arrangements to dine “al-fresco” under the huge “palapa” (thatched roof) adorned with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. From here, as well, witness the playful grace of the dolphins and enjoy evening cocktails and breathtaking sunsets from the terrace. The stunning vista of glimmering lights in the Port of Manzanillo serve as a peaceful backdrop for your evening’s pleasure. As an added feature, you can access the ocean from the villa’s private staircase; here, you will discover the mature greenery, colourful flowers, banana and palm trees that seem to accompany you along your walk.
The large infinity pool that is surrounded by colourful bougainvilleas and lush vegetation is one of the highlights of the villa experience. Enjoy a cold drink or a Margarita while you sunbathe, read a book, or relax under the shadow of the many palm trees. Afternoon siestas are a must after savouring a delicious meal expertely prepared by your own chef de cuisine.
The cobblestone streets of La Punta bordered by perfectly manicured landscaping, lead you to the private beach, club house and tennis club that is reserved exclusively for guests and residents. A golf cart is provided for your added convenience to allow for easy transportation within the gated community. Other amenities include satellite TV, CD, DVD, high-speed internet and complimentary USA and CANADA long distance calls.
The appeal of these amenities is enhanced immeasurably by the dedication of our bilingual staff. Each staff member is adept and experienced in providing impeccable service within a luxury setting. Your meals will be hygienically prepared with the freshest of ingredients, the house cleaned daily and meticulously, and your clothes will be washed and ironed with the utmost care. If you are travelling with infants, small children, or teenagers, our staff are ell versed in recognizing and responding to your family’s needs. Our multilingual manager supervises all aspects of your vacation getaway including the planning of daily activities. Our staff values and respects your privacy, so their work is performed unobtrusively “behind the scenes”.
Other optional in-house services are available to suit your own specific requirements, including masseuse, babysitting, and physical training, Spanish instruction, cooking classes, tour guide and nursing services.
