About Jack

We found Zihuatanejo about 20 years ago. At first we stayed in Hotels but became so completely entranced with the area we had to buy a condo to be able to spend more time there each year. The complex and our condo reflects our love of peace and tranquility.

Jack purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jack chose Zihuatanejo

Zihuatanejo is a real, live, working Mexican fishing village. Our wonderful Mexican neighbors are just that, our neighbors and Friends. We always feel welcome and part of the Zihua. family when we are there. Having traveled much of the world I must say that Zihua. is very special and inviting to guests.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is new, fresh and beautifully decorated. The views from every room in the condo are spectacular.

Family Vacation - Unbelievable Experiences!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved staying here. 10 days over Christmas with two teenagers was very comfortable for us. The en-suite bathroom is a nice added touch for the master bedroom. Well laid out condo. Air Conditioner was appreciated as we are not used to the humidity! The view from the condo is very breathtaking! Every morning we would sit on the deck to read and enjoy the view. Grounds are well maintained and very lush! We made use of the well stocked kitchen. Appreciated the water filtration system, filled up water bottles for the days activities. The affinity pools had umbrellas and chairs and had an amazing view of the bay. Books available to read and return. Our kids appreciated Wi-Fi and Internet access as did we, to wish our families a Merry Christmas! Location is as advertised. 10 minutes to the beach and a short cab ride to the center of Zihu! Eliezer, was in charge of guest services and was helpful with any questions we had. Great customer service! Our highlight was watching the sea turtles hatch and we had the opportunity to release them out to the ocean. Unbelievable! My husband and I took a cooking class with Monica (patio to book in advance). She toured us to the markets (fresh fish, beef, vegetables, fruit, bread and spices) and gave us tips on what to buy. We prepared our own salsa and learned how to prepare an authentic Mexican meal. Wonderful experience! Our family is very active! Here is a few of our highlights: Kayaked at Barra de Potosi, Snorkeled at Las Gatas and Ixtapa Island. Fishing with "Moses" and the fish that we caught were then prepared for a fresh lunch. Zip-lined at Ixtapa. Sunset cruise on the Picante. Parasailed, Jet-skied, and rode the waves on La Ropa Beach. Restaurants we loved: Il Mare, Elvira's, La Vita e' Bella (spinach ravioli) La Pearla, Jungle Pizza, and Bandidos (has TSN sports).

As I mentioned, accommodations were perfect for our family. Communication with condo owner was via e-mail with easy payment transactions. On our next trip to Zihu, this condo will be our first choice!

Thank-You Jack!

I LOVED staying here -- both the condo and the location. The condo grounds were stunning and very well maintained, and the on-site security and grounds staff were incredibly friendly; I felt safe and secure the entire month I stayed here. The condo had everything we needed, and was very well maintained. Really appreciated the water filtration system installed, allowing me to drink tap water without worry. Jack checked in a few times over the month via email to make sure I was satisfied, serviced and everything about our stay was going well there. iPhone Home speaker too.

Location is great -- about a mile walk to town, about 1/4 mi down to Playa de Ropa, complete with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean from the condo. It is very hilly, which I happen to love. Great exercise. If you don't like walking the hill, there are many options from bus to frequent taxis (seemed like a taxi passed every 1-2 minutes).

Activity-wise -- the sunset cruise for $60 USD on the catamaran Picante was well worth it-- great captain, staff, small dinner and cocktails were great too. Not nearly as touristy of an activity as I expected. Make reservations to ensure they are running that night (they must at least have 30+ signed up). I also kayaked through mangroves near the airport, at Barra de Potosi. You can take the bus on the highway, tell the driver you are going to Barra de Potosi. they'll drop you on the side of the road you need to take where you'll catch a more informal "taxi" (back of pickup truck) to the end of the road (several miles). You can also take a cab for about $30-$40 USD. You'll find a 2x2 block village followed by 4-6 beach huts at the end of the road that are restaurants/kayak rental places. Most kayak rentals are run by Spanish speaking only owners/families. Rent from them. I did not kayak with a guide, but am a sea kayaker so know what I'm doing w equipment. I went with a local woman from Zihuatenejo that I met, who knew where to go. Stay along the shoreline, taking you past mangroves & eventually "entrances" into more mangroves (almost like a maze; there's really only one way in/out so you dont get lost). Unbelievable birds -- rosetta spoonbills, egrets, white pelicans, cranes, herons -- everywhere!!!! super cool. went twice. Other notable: Cooking School by Monica. $35 USD. Book in advance. Worth it. Walking to town, its about 1/6 mi past Hotel Irma, down the hill a bit on right. Sign out front at her restaurant, Patio Mexicana.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. We found the condo to be everyting it was advertised to be plus some. The beach at Playa La Ropa was great and we spent lots of time under the umbrellas

at La Perla. we celebrated my wife's 75th birthday a Kau Kan and the meal was great. We loved Banditos and had a ball at La Papa Loca. The bottom line is that we had a wonderful time and recommend the Condo to everyone.

Terrific condo to recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this wonderful condo beginning 3/9/12. Two in the master bedroom and one in the 2nd bedroom located behind the curved sofa in the photos. The 2nd bedroom is one step up from the main level and remains private at night behind a pair of sliding doors. Both bathrooms are lovely. The photos posted for this condo are an accurate picture of how beautiful it is. We walked a few times down to La Ropa beach and also into downtown Zihua. Walks are moderately brisk but not too difficult. DO exercise caution when crossing the road at the bottom of the hill where the condo is located because traffic zips by at a good clip. The view from the condo is very nice and includes some roof tops and small sections of the roadway below the condo. However, all the condos and residences on this side of the road would have similar views. Views of the roof tops and roadway had no negative effect on our stay as they did not block views of the bay or Las Gatas Beach across the bay. There is not a view of La Ropa beach from the condo. Saw and heard lots of birds including Chachalacas walking on tree branches and trails directly behind the condo. I was able to get some great pictures. We very much enjoyed sitting in the bar/breezeway area overlooking the pool areas. Indeed there is a gentle breeze that blows through the shaded breezeway - quite nice for those who do not want to be directly in the sun. Can't say enough about how fantastic our visit to Zihua was. We were fortunate enough to be in town during the annual Carnival Celebration. In the downtown basketball court/ town square were kiddie rides, lots of food vendors, games and stage performances with a multitude of dancers in colorful costumes! The variety and prices of goods in the shops in Zihua and Ixtapa beat the shops we've visited in Playa del Carmen and Cancun. Here's a fun thing to do - have a taxi take you to the correct bus depot to catch a bus to Barra de Potosi beach. The bus will drop you off at a roadside stop where you then pay a few dollars to ride in the back of a canvas-covered pick-up truck for the final leg to the beach. At the beach are thatch-covered areas with tables where you can buy a cold brew, a plate of nachos or even lunch.This trip made for a memorable and delightful day!! After our day trip we were happy to return to our comfy and cool condo to watch the sun sink behind the hills of Zihua. Our vacation was magical!

Casa Vista Vacation

  • 5 of 5

"MOST EXCELLENT" Describes our stay at Casa Vista Grande. This place is great, and unlike some other units, the unit is bright and airy and the views will take your breath away due to the windows that span the front of the condo The grounds and pools are incredible so clean and well maintained and all the many flowers...beautiful So this is the place to go if your tired of the, "all inclusive", mega resorts where your hard pressed to even have an awareness that your in Mexico. My last trip was my 5th trip to Zihau and the FOURTH STAY in Jack's Casa Vista Grande. I've been home for a week and already planning our return. It's a short walk to the beach and many great restaurants. For us a great meal on the beach, a cold beer, and toes in the sand is absolutely the best!! Lot's to do or do nothing it's all good!! Thanks Jack for another great vacation.

Wonderful in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in this condo. The location is convenient to restaurants, La Ropa beach, shopping, the center of town. The condo is comfortable, tastefully furnished and decorated. It is clean and well-maintained. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well equipped to do so. Views of the bay from the master bedroom and living room are lovely and serene. We enjoyed sipping wine while watching the sunset from the balcony each evening. The owner is very responsive. He provides a detailed information sheet. The on site concierge is helpful. The security guards are friendly. The maid service is much appreciated. The amenities described are available.

The landscaping and infinity pools are an added bonus. As others have mentioned, the path to the road is steep but inexpensive taxis are available if needed. We went on several tours with a guide, Juan Carlos, whom we would recommend.

Overall we enjoy Zihua. It is small enough to negotiate, there are many good restaurants, we feel safe, the weather is perfect, and the setting is beautiful. We plan to return next year.
