DREAMY VIEW OF PLAYA LA ROPA & BAY + LUXURY STYLE!

Zihuatanejo Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

Casa Del Arbol Cantando (“House of the Singing Tree”) is a beautiful 3-bedroom luxury condo on the peaceful Mexican Riviera, less than a 10-minute walk to Playa La Ropa, with a spectacular view of dreamy Zihuatanejo Bay from two terraces, both facing the bay and graced with tropical plants and outdoor seating.

Recently renovated by husband & wife designers, this spacious 3 bedroom apartment, with 3.5 baths was crafted by some of the finest local artisans, using rich local woods, handmade terra cotta tile & fine stonework. A brasilia tree dramatically centers the entry stairway, rising up two floors.

With almost 3,000 square feet, this luxury condo is perfect for 3 couples or a family. The fully-equipped kitchen, with gas stove, has a lovely view of the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Bottled purified water is provided.

Every room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning is available. Every bedroom has a king bed with 400-thread count linens and its own bathroom with rain showers & smooth pebble floors.

There is a lovely pool (large enough for laps) fed by a man-made waterfall, off-street parking & 24-hour security.

A truly magical spot in beautiful, peaceful Zihuatanejo.

This is the best time to secure your vacation for next year, while it's still available.

About Sherwin & Peg Harris

Sherwin & Peg are both artists/designers from New York. Sherwin is a semi-retired art director & graphic designer who came to Zihuatanejo in 2001, after being coerced by a good friend. 'Let's go to Mexico,' he said. He stayed on La Ropa and moved over to Las Gatas and camped out with local legend Owen Lee. Week after week passed and the original return home date was a distant memory. The playwright and poet Anna Della Marina Rego even wrote a play about the experience, called 'The Man Who Failed to Fly,' which has been performed in San Miguel de Allende.

The following year, his future wife Peg (aka Margarita), an interior designer and senior associate at a renowned architectural firm followed him down to make sure he came home, and she too fell in love with Zihua. (Who doesn't?) It is a magical place that resonates deep within the soul.

They've met amazing folks here and continue to expand their circles. It's been a richly rewarding experience. And the weather!! That word Paradise pops into everyone's vernacular. They love the fact that it is NOT a high rise resort or a Spring Break destination.

Sherwin & Peg Harris purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sherwin & Peg Harris chose Zihuatanejo

With gorgeous views of the Zihuatanejo Bay from the hill on the south end (their favorite) of Playa La Ropa, the casa is just a short walk down to the beach and restaurants, and a short cab ride to town ('El Centro') for 50 pesos (under $4 US). There is fantastic flora & fauna to be found, with hummingbirds, herons, chakalakas, geckos, iguanas and many many more exotic birds and beasts, not to mention lush tropical plants and flowers everywhere. Heaven!

Beautiful Views!!!! Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place to stay in Z! Sherwin and Peg have a beautiful 3 bedroom condo with 4 bathrooms, and 2 amazing balconies. The property is situated a short distance from the far end (further from town) of La Ropa beach. I found this to be perfect since we loved to go to Rosey on that end of the beach. Although I've been to Zihuatanejo many times and even got married there, I never went to the market and cooked myself, the kitchen had everything I needed to make amazing fresh tuna and shrimp. Of course not every night since there are so many great restaurants in town.
It was surprisingly so easy to get a cab to and from town. They were outside waiting within a couple of minutes and it only cost around 50 pesos.
The condo is beautifully decorated and well maintained by Rosario (Housekeeper). She is a lovely person who made sure we had everything we needed.
Pool was a really nice treat after we were at the beach all day, so refreshing and really clean.
Although you are there to get away from it all the condo had Wi-Fi and TV.
Overall, It was such a great place. It truly has everything you need to have a great relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks Courtney. We are very happy that you had such a great time and that everything was to your liking. We strive to make it easy and relaxing for our guests. That's the point. We don't feel that you should need a vacation when you get back from one. Hope to see you again soon!

Absolutely beautiful location and I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone.

  • 5 of 5
I don't think that I can accurately depict what an amazing place this is, the photos provided really do represent how the property looks but still fail to convey how gorgeous the open layout and surrounding area really are. The owners were very helpful and prompt about answering questions and making sure that we arrived safely and were comfortable. The beach was a short walk down the hill and we would often take a stroll down the beach to have a nice breakfast or dinner. The owners left detailed instructions on how to navigate the local area and also included many helpful suggestions for restaurants or attractions. We were far enough away from the bustle of town to really relax but close enough that we could go for a fun night out with little hassle. I would definitely go back.

Better than Advertised

  • 5 of 5
This home is how we would like ours to be, in any country or environment.
When we weren't on the beach or in town or touring, our favourite spot was the magnificent large deck overlooking what all the world should look like.
Very comfortable. Very spacious. Very clean ( and kept that way with a great housekeeper all week). The owners of this paradise treated us like we were long time friends, and I could see it would be easy to become such with them. Easy short walk to the beach. Could even walk to town, but usually took the lazy way out with a $50 peso cabride ( less than five dollars). The wonderful culture of Mexico and it's friendly people are fully exposed in this town. We were welcomed and pampered, and although we usually like to try different restaurants for every meal, we became regulars at Carmelitas. It is truly a quality Mexican restaurant owned by amazing people. Prices very cheap by our standards at home, but even modest by local comparisons.
Stay at this palace if you like the best of everything.

casa Del Arbol Cantndo - 5 Star Plus Rating

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with a group of friends from 12/17 to 12/28/12 and can't say enough about the condo, the location and the caring, personable and involved owners, Sherwin and Peg! We have rented a lot of condos over the years in lots of places and this condo stands out as one of the best ever. The condo is gorgeous, the view is breathtaking. Waking up to that view every morning was priceless. Our quads are in the best shape ever after those breathtakingly beautiful walks up and down the 75 stairs to La Ropa beach! We loved the quality touches of the condo- the signature "arbol cantando" is a huge wow factor! But the gorgeous dishes, ample and quality silverware, glassware and copper bottom cookware (I could have used a baking sheet though) are fabulous. The ambience is just perfect. Having two patios was delightful and both are a plant and flower lovers feast! Dona Rosario was a wonderful and personable housekeeper who made great breakfasts for us. The five of us had plenty of room to spread out and relax. But what really sets this condo apart is the caring and personable owners - Sherwin and Peg were great at answering questions ahead of time but called while were there multiple times to make sure everything was ok. We ended up sharing photos back and forth and feel like we made new friends in the process of renting. I'm sure they make all their guests feel this special! All of Sherwin's recommendations were spot on. We found one of the most gorgeous "happy hour" bars ever thanks to Sherwin - so hidden we would never have found it on our own. We loved taking the bus into Zihua to explore the great restuarants and our favorite coffee shop - it's an easy 1 block walk from the bottom of the stairs and the 6.5 peso bus ride was a local experience and adventure in itself. It's also a great hike from the bottom of the stairs over the rocks to Playa las Gatas - again the best combination of workout followed by relaxing great beach, shrimp tacos and great margaritas or cerveza once there. We would highly recommend this great condo to anyone looking for a memorable Zihua experience!

Wonderful condo in Zihuatanejo

  • 5 of 5
Our group of three couples just completed our one week stay in this beautiful condo. Sherwin the owner went to great lengths to assure that we had a wonderful stay. I can't say enough about his attention to our needs before and during our vacation.

The condo has three large bedrooms, all with king beds and each with its own bath/shower. Two large terraces provide outstanding views of the beach and bay below. Night time views of Zihuatanejo are spectacular. A large kitchen and indoor living room complement the rooms. There is also a separate powder room, with combo washer/dryer for use.

The condo is perched on the hillside above Playa la Ropa. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, down a road and some fairly steep stairs. Mobility impaired folks will find the trip to and from the beach a challenge. Taxis are available, though.

Lots of superior restaurants are within a short drive from the condo.

We would not hesitate to stay here again when we visit Zihua in the future.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this condo and we really enjoyed the lovely large space. Each bedroom is very comfortable and having your own private bath is nice. The kitchen area is big and we ever able to entertain with comfort.
The view from this condo is spectacular and there is not a lack outdoor space for all the enjoy.
We will definately be returning next year to Zihua. Thanks so much Sherwin and Peg for extending your lovely home to us Canadians.

Car: not necessary

Zihuatanejo is a charming fishing village at the base of the foothills of the Sierra Madres, that has become a highly desired tourist destination in the Mexican Riviera. The pace is still leisurely, but there is plenty to do, if that is your desire. Golf, tennis, biking, sailing, sport fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, horseback riding are but a sampling of the activities, although most are always drawn back to the beach. Casa del Arbol Cantando at Punta Marina Condominiums is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to Playa La Ropa, our most beautiful beach, and just around the corner from the treasured Playa Las Gatas, where there is snorkeling and scuba diving available.

This year, our paradise has hosted the Zihua Sailfest, the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival, the Food & WIne Festival in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo as well as colorful local carnivals & other festivities.
