About Anita Pearson
Growing up in the very northwestern corner of Washington State, little did my husband and I realize the direction our lives would take when he accepted a teaching position in the late 1970's with the ARAMCO schools in Saudi Arabia. Now after more than 30 years living abroad in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Beijing, Osaka, Brazil and currently in Dhaka, Bangladesh, where he is the CFO of an international school, we truly consider ourselves citizens of the world. It's no wonder we've fallen in love with Estrella del Mar in Mazatlan!
Anita Pearson purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Anita Pearson chose Mazatlán
The first time we visited Estrella del Mar it was just to see it. Well, the rest is history as we fell in love with the beautiful beach, the sound of the surf, the golf, and the peace and quiet. For us, it's truly a perfect get-away from the hectic schedule of our life as international educators and a perfect complement to our other 'home' in the northwest corner of Washington State. We were also drawn to its proximity to the historic city of Mazatlan, knowing we could enjoy the peace and serenity of Estrella del Mar but still be close to a major historical city. The fact that we're only 10 minutes from the airport was certainly a plus for us.
What makes this Condo unique
Talk about a place to completely unwind! When the decisions of the day include: 'Do I watch the beautiful sunset from the deck, the pool or the beach?' or 'Do we play golf in the morning or in the afternoon?' or 'Should we walk the beach in the morning or at sunset?' or 'Do I want a margarita with dinner or red wine?' it's not difficult to imagine how easy it is to relax and how difficult it is to leave this piece of paradise. We have also tried to furnish our condo into a home away from home, a place that not only looks good but is comfortable and welcoming.

It doesn’t get much better than this...
Estrella Del Mar is gorgeous, the beach phenomenal and this condo a gem. I’ve stayed at EDM before and one thing about this particular condo is that you get the morning sun which is so welcome on cooler mornings. The condo is clean, nicely furnished and even a rental guide available for anything you forgot to ask (very nice touch!). And thank you to Silvia, who was great to deal with for groceries and transportation.
Bring your golf clubs and sunscreen and you will be all set. Very private and quiet, we loved it, 2 weeks went so fast!
The Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!!!
This was our first time vacationing this way and we won't do it any other way in the future! The experience with Bill and Anita was wonderful! I was anxious about the process and they were both helpful and understanding and the property was everything they said it would be and more!! The location was quiet and the Condo was spacious and well furnished. I would highly recommend this unit as well as Estrella del Mar!!
Thanks, Ryan - you're welcome back any time!
fabulous stay outside of mazatlan ,
We loved our week at the condo at Estrella del Mar. It's right on the ocean and has a huge. gorgeous pool. Very relaxing. If you are looking for a remote place to chill out, book here. The owners were very easy to work with and had a well supplied and appointed condo.
In a nutshell: HEAVEN
Estrella Del Mar, Mazatlan, Mexico: I've had some peeps following my travel diary this week, wanting more info on where we are. In a nutshell: In Heaven. Lol. But - for real ... On the Pacific coast of Mexico, across from the Baja Peninsula - in Mazatlan. I discovered this treasure 4 years ago when looking for a quiet Vaca spot to UNplug. We are in a privately owned 2-bedroom, 3-bath condo on the coast .... ~10 miles (I think)/30-45 minutes from Mazatlan. Please contact the condo owners directly for rates - but I can tell you it is at a price point comparable to a mid-range hotel per night. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the owners of our unit.
The resort consists of 3 phases, each with its own pool - as well as a hotel and 2 restaurants. It sits on 3-1/2 miles of (literally) private beach. I see fewer than a dozen peeps on the beach a day. And it is COMPLETELY safe. I have talked to other property owners - neverrrrr an issue with safety. There is a grocery shopping service I email my list to - and the condo is stocked for me for a NOMINAL (& I mean nominal) fee. And there is an extremely reasonably priced shuttle service into Mazatlan from the resort - where you can go to spend the day or catch tour packages for area activities. (We are doing the Blue Agave Tequila Factory Tour on Saturday - cannot wait!)
Now. If you are looking for the hubbub & excitement of an all-inclusive resort where there are activities and a lot of peeps - EDM is NOT the place for you. But if, like me, you simply need to completely UNplug from life as you know it, yet have the option to shuttle into the craziness of the city - THIS is your place. We are able to come here for the FRACTION of the cost of an all-inclusive, which gives us the luxury of a longer stay.
The staff of EDM could not be more acccomodating, as well. The property is HUGE - with a professional level golf course on top of everything else. As such, there is a shuttle service that will take you to the on-property restaurants at no cost - beyond a well-deserved tip to the drivers.
What else can I tell you? Please ask. But, The condo owners have been SO kind to share their home with us. And I am thrilled to be able to share the joy
Quiet Slice of Heaven
A pristine condo in a heavenly setting! Lovely walks on the beach, and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves. The staff at Estrella del Mar were wonderful and Bill & Anita gave us lots of helpful info before we arrived.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, a beautiful pool, and a beautiful beach, this is your spot. We saw dolphins, and a whale! We could not have asked for more!
