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 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.
