Harriet Garfinkle is a former dancer, a painter and the owner and director of Woodside Pilates.

Ron is Neuro-psychiatrist specializing in treatment of severe brain disorder and schizophrenia who has hidden talents as an artist.

Harriet and Ron went to Zihuatanejo on their first date in 1978. Back then it was a sleepy fishing village, where you could lie on the beach all day under a palapa. You could take an occasional plunge in the gentle surf, sip a piña colada, dine on the freshest fish, and take a nighttime stroll under more stars than you could ever dream up.

That was almost thirty years ago, and hardly anything has changed. It is waking up a little and has more comforts and conveniences, but the construction of Ixtapa twenty minutes away corralled all the high-rise hotels, trendy discos and deconstruction of natural splendor.

Zihuatanejo has kept all of its old world charm and remains one of the most beautiful beaches and bays in the world. They have traveled a lot since then, but Zihuatanejo is the place they always go back to, and finally in 2006 they bought property there.

Harriet Garfinkle purchased this condo in 2006

Ron and Harriet have a strong belief in education and environmental action as a means to heal the world.

With that in mind, for every guest that stays with us, we donate to the Children's Library a Barra de Potosí. The programs help change the world one child at a time. We donate to Friends of Niños Adelante as well.

We also give to S.O.S. Bahia for the rescue and preservation of Zihuatanejo Bay, to raise awareness of the bay as a natural and tourist resource that we should preserve and enjoy in a sustainable manner.

The view. The art. The bay. The people. The food.

Just a note to thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely condo in Zihuatanejo. We were looking for a beautiful, tranquil place to "breathe" and we found it at Sueno Del Mar. The condo and views were simply stunning. It was perfect!

Upon arrival we were greeted by Eliezer, who remembered us from when we were staying at La Casa Que Ve Al Mar FOUR years ago. He is extremely friendly and helpful, and gave us a short tour of Harriet's beautiful condo. The property itself is very peaceful, quiet, well kept and has beautiful views of the ocean-and the condo was exactly that. Every inch of this place has been well thought out and is decorated beautifully. The huge living room window looking over the bay is incredible, and we often sat in the living room drinking margaritas and staring out into the ocean for hours. We also spent a lot of time on the bedroom deck, which comes complete with two big comfy chairs. The condo has surround sound which plays in the bedroom and throughout the main living area. There is also a washer and dryer in case you need to do an emergency load. On the first day there we did some grocery shopping at Commercial Mexicana. We made breakfast in the condo almost every morning and ate in for dinner a couple of times. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, dishware and all the gadgets you can think of. Unfortunately we were there during tropical storm Manuel-but we were more than happy to have been holed up in Hariett's condo which has TWO flat screen TV's, both with DVD players and cable TV. She even has a good collection of DVD's on hand-we watched Shawshank Redemption for the first time during the storm ;-) The storm was very unfortunate for all of the areas affected, but staff at the condo and throughout Zihua worked extremely hard to get things back in shape as quickly as possible. Both Eliezer and Hariett called us the day after the storm to check in on us and give us updates on the weather (the internet was down for the week so we weren't able to check ourselves). I would most definitely return to Sueno del Mar, maybe as soon as next summer!

Owner's Response: You guys were the perfect guests. I was so impressed by how you managed during the tropical storm Manuel that almost became a hurricane in Zihua. You handled it with such aplomb! I am so glad that you are coming back in July and we are thrilled to have you! We welcome you with open arms any time. Eliezer kept saying how nice you are! And when he says it, he means it!

We enjoyed your condo very much
Loved your art collection and the decorating and your book that you created
Perhaps a map of town could be included to assist one in finding a restaurant address
Kitchen was so well equipped except it was lacking wine glasses
We just had trouble drinking wine from martini glasses!!!
The only other suggestion that we would make is providing light weight housecoats like you find in hotels
Other than that all of the staff were helpful and friendly
Concerning restaurants
We ate at several in your book and the only disappointing one was La Vieja
Pork chop arrived raw and tuna brochette was cold!!
Reubens was excellent as well as Rufos and la Gula
We enjoyed Casa que Canta but would not order shrimp there again
Thanks for sharing
We also would spend at least 2 days seeing the colonial towns of Morelia and Pacquarro and take the first class bus rather than rent a car
Thanks again

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! LOL. I will get some wine glasses when I am down later this month. I rather like the rustic touch of the handmade glasses, but if you are a REAL wine drinker (which I am not, even though I live in California) you might want REAL wine glasses. We also love Morelia and Patzcuaro and they are a fantastic side trip if you are staying for more than a week. Michoacan and Guerrero are among the most beautiful of the Mexican states. The climb to 7,000 feet in altitude from sea level is awe-inspiring.

Walking into Sueno del mar we were immediately impressed with the spectacular view from the main living room. Following that we were impressed with the art work and décor that is evident throughout the condo. The artwork is what made us choose this condo over others. The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances, condiments and spices that we are used to at home which was greatly appreciated. The location is close to activities we enjoy such as walking the beach, snorkeling, swimming. Many restaurants nearby. We enjoyed meeting other owners/guests in the infinity pool at the daily afternoon gathering. They are a great source of local information. The book exchange was also a nice benefit. Our favorite restaurant was Coco Bahia. Excellent food with a view of the bay lights. Other activities we enjoyed were a successful rooster fishing trip with a local guide. Zihua is a wonderful place to slow yourself down. Harriet was very easy to work with. This will be a repeat vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being great guests and for the great review! We love ALL the same things as you. We can almost always be found drinking in the view from the infinity pools at sunset. We are art-oholics. If we had a palace to furnish with art and artifacts, we would be happy. And of course the view is an artwork in itself!
Thanks, please return!

SPECTACULAR VACATION WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

WOW! My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time staying at Sueno Del Mar last October! Harriet's place was INCREDIBLE! The view was unbelievable and the artwork and decor was so unique, and beautiful. (A lot of the pictures we took are of the artwork in the condo!) We spent 10 amazing days there (not long enough!). We would wake up to the beautiful view of the ocean right from our bed, then make breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen with the fresh ingredients we bought at the local market, and enjoy it from the open air living area while gazing at the Pacific ocean and planning our day. The town is wonderful and adorable, and we walked there from the condo a few times. We also took the bus which came very frequently and was an easy option for us to do a day of shopping in town. We could also easily walk down to the beach for happy hour, a swim and/or dinner at one of the beach front restaurants. We would spend most evenings watching the sunset with a margarita from the infinity pools which were soooo wonderful! We feel lucky to have found Sueno Del Mar, it was the perfect romantic place to spend our vacation in Zihuatanejo. Everything was beautiful, clean and perfect in the condo and Harriet was so helpful in navigating us through what to expect, and giving us fun suggestions of how to spend our time. We made lots of new friends who were staying there too, and can't wait to return for a reunion!
Thank you Harriet for making our first trip to Mexico together such a magical one!

Owner's Response: Oh, reading your review makes me want to be there right now! I absolutely am thrilled when folks have a great vacation and learn to love not only the warmth of the sun, but the sunniness of the people in Zihuatanejo. Thank you for taking the time to let other folks know just what a wonderful place we have. You were great guests and we are happy to have you back anytime.

Saludos, Harriet

When we first came to Zihuatanejo, back in 1978, it was a sleepy fishing village, where you could spend all day at the beach lying under a palapa. You could take an occasional plunge in the gentle surf, sip a pina colada, dine on the freshest fish, and take a nighttime stroll under more stars than you could ever dream up. That was almost thirty years ago, and hardly anything has changed. From our condo, La Ropa beach is only a five minute stroll. You can swim, boogie board, get a massage in a tent right on the sand, dine at one of 16 beach front restaurants or hang out under a palapa with a good book. The authentic village of Zihuatanejo offers shopping, spas, yoga, dancing, dining, sunset cruises, an Artisan Market, deep sea fishing or the old world style Mercado Central. To the north and south are open water beaches with world class surfing and Ixtapa has two golf courses. Our condo is the perfect staging ground for a life in paradise.

Other Activities: Boogie boarding, relaxing under a palapa
