Zihuatanejo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

You have arrived! Located only 15 minutes from the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Airport, our deluxe condo is situated high above the white-sand La Ropa Beach on the Bay of Zihuatanejo (land of women). Casa de Serenidad, our 1300 sq. ft. casa has two master bedrooms with private baths, a covered terrace, and views of the Pacific Ocean from all rooms in the house.

Located just a short walk to the beach and a quick and cheap taxi ride, bus, or walk to town, we are the authentically designed gated community La Casa Que Ve al Mar (the house that looks out to the sea). A premier 39 unit resort, created by renowned architect Enrique Zozoya who is known for the exclusive La Casa Que Canta,we are a non-commercial vacation destination, combining comfort, privacy and fantastic amenities!

Grandly sitting high on the hillside, the gently blowing ocean breezes and views of the blue Pacific will soothe your soul. Our Casa de Serenidad is a contemporary condominium featuring modern amenities located on the 2nd floor with an elevator and ramp for easy access. Beautifully designed, the condo is artfully decorated with native Mexican art & pottery, hand-loomed fabrics, handcrafted cabinetry and tropical beach rattan furnishings. The sand blasted marble floors with intricate inlaid stone designs, walls textured with authentic “grass” and hand-polished plaster walls creates the serene setting for your next vacation. We hope you’ll enjoy our favorite place in the entire condo where the hammock hangs below the Mexican tile roofed terrace, a perfect spot for siestas and sunset cocktails.

Prepared with your needs in mind, everything has been supplied for your comfort including premium linens, comfortable queen-size mattresses, hair dryers, quiet, cool air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen (pots/pans/blender/juicer/baking dishes - we have it all! )with high back Mexican style bar seating or dining al fresco on the view terrace.

Enjoy all of the comforts of home, with none of the stress. Use our in-house washer/dryer, maid service two times each week (or more as you wish), and meal preparation upon request. Satellite TV on the 37” flat screen offers a good selection of English speaking channels. We have a good supply of DVD’s, and don’t forget your iPod for the docking station. The condo has free Wi-Fi internet access and purified water.

Casa Que Ve al Mar’s two infinity swimming pools come alive for glistening sunsets, when friendly guests share cocktails as they watch the sun drop over the Pacific Ocean. This small, classy resort has it all…lush tropical landscaping, on-site parking, 24/7 gated security and on-site English/Spanish speaking management. We are ideally located next to the charming fishing village of Zihuatanejo, just 15 minutes from the upscale vacation destination of Ixtapa.

A perfect day includes a leisurely stroll along fisherman’s walk to El Centro where you can mix with tourists and locals alike. Walk 10 minutes for a beachside massage, to rent a kayak, parasail or to play in the sand and surf at La Ropa Beach. For an evening out, stroll to one of the 5 star dining establishments or locally owned beach spots, or if you prefer dining in, stock your kitchen and bar from the colorful Mercado (open-air market) or from one of the two modern super markets nearby. Taxi service is readily available with bargain price door-to door service. The local bus stops just steps away and is a fast, cheap and a flavorful way to get around!

The condo provides ample room for four people. Rates vary according to season. See the rate chart below and calendar for available times. Zihuatanejo is very special to us and our goal is to do everything possible to make Zihua a very special place in your heart, too. We love Zihuatanejo and hope that you will, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful week in Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa! The weather was beautiful all week and the view from the condo and infinity pools is unbelievable. Thank you for sharing your home - we loved it and would love to come back! For other guests, if you have a chance to visit Playa Linda to see the crocodiles and birds and the iguanas - it is well worth the cab ride! We also enjoyed the superb snorkeling on Istapa Island - a short ferry ride from Playa Linda.

Hi! We're Paul & Connie Sorensen. We love Zihuatanejo and spend 4 - 5 weeks during January and another 10 days or so during the late fall. We have been then nearly every month of the year...and love it anytime!!! We are still part of the working class, but continue to stay focused on the not so distant future when we can spend longer periods of time in paradise. We both work full time, Paul builds custom homes and I sell residential real estate. Something happens to you when you're there. The minute you step off the plane and feel the warm air, see the many smiling faces and you say to yourself, 'I'm home.' That is how it is for us.

Connie Sorensen purchased this condo in 2006

We completed our purchase in 2006 when it was brick and mortar. Paul, a contractor on Vashon Island, WA, supervised a local contractor to build our dreams in mid 2008. Together we designed the condo interior, shopped in Patzcuarro, Morelia and Zihua for furnishings and by December 2008 we loaded our Mexico car and took a road trip to our new vacation home! It was a great trip and we thoroughly enjoy our time in Zihua. We first began visiting Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo about 10 years ago and on our first trip bought a time share. As the years went by, we realized that Zihutanejo felt like home. We have never regretted our decision to purchase a vacation property and each year we feel more and more a part of the community.

The condo community is a wonderful group of folks from various backgrounds and the Zihua community is friendly, safe and full of local Mexican culture. We socialize with many of the other owners and renters whom we meet poolside. We love breakfast out at Casa Cafe or the Pancake House and dinners in so many places. Sundays at Playa Larga is a family affair among the Mexicans and we enjoy being part of that. Weekend nights are fun at the Basketball court in downtown Zihua by the water. There's always a ton of locals out enjoying the evening. La Ropa Beach is always a special treat when we camp out for the day at La Perla. There chairs are the best! I enjoy yoga or a massage at Pati's on La Ropa Beach. We hope you will come to love Zihuatanejo as we do.

It doesn't get any better than this!

It doesn't get any better than this!
  • 5 of 5
This was our sixth trip to Mexico, first trip to Zihuatanejo. We are two couples in our 50's. It was a great break from the Idaho and Utah winters.

Casa de Serenidad was awesome! You always hope the owners have done a fair job of representing their property and Connie has done just that. The property was as beautiful and well appointed as the description and pictures would suggest. Everything was comfortable, clean and in good repair. The master bedroom and the living room look out over the bay and the well-tended grounds around La Casa Que Ve al Mar. Unbeatable!

We didn't do a lot of cooking. Once we arrived at the condo and got settled, we took a taxi to Commercial Mexicana and stocked up on snacks and breakfast stuff (lots of pastries!). We typically ate breakfast at the condo, then eat lunch and dinner wherever we happen to be at lunchtime or dinner time.

The pools are warm and comfortable and often in the evenings we lounged in the pools and watched the sun set over the bay and the night settle in. The walk down to the beach (Playa la Ropa) takes five or ten minutes at the most. You can take a taxi back up the hill, but we usually walked. Not a big deal.

There is much to see and do in the area. Some of the things we particularly enjoyed were: hiring a boat to take us to Manzanillo bay to snorkel, renting kayaks and paddling over to Playa Las Gatas for the afternoon, and my favorite: a day up the coast at Tronconnes taking a surf lesson.

One thing not to be missed is to go into Zihuatanejo on Sunday evening and hang out at the basketball court which serves as the unofficial town gathering spot. As the evening settles in, people begin to gather. Mostly local people, but a few tourists as well. This is a great chance to eat authentic food. There will be multiple vendors who have carts set up selling all kinds of fun stuff: tacos, quesadillas, horchata, and even deep fried banana slices drizzled with coconut syrup. We tried a lot of great things.

Transportation is easy. Taxis pass frequently on the road in front of the condo and will gladly stop if you look like you want a ride. Taxi drivers were friendly and tolerant of our sketchy Spanish. There are also buses available. We took a bus back from Isla Ixtapa after a day of snorkeling and enjoyed the ride back to Zihuatanejo Cento.

We'll be back!

Great location for a great relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
Your condo is a great magical place. Great views, great feeling, gracefully furnished. We had a fantastic and relaxing 15 days. La Ropa beach is fabulous. The staff on location are pleasent and very accomodationg. Our only draw back (of a personal nature) was the steep walk up from the beach. All in all recommended for a quiet relaxing and romantic vacation.

We had a great time in Zihuatanejo, and thoroughly enjoyed our five nights in this condo.
It was great to have a kitchen, and the two pools were amazing. The security was great, we never felt unsafe in the condo, or in town. We walked down to La Playa Ropa everyday, and the owner's recommendations on where to find seats and food were much appreciated!

The only thing that would have made this trip perfect is if the Washer had worked. We packed for our nine day trip under the assumption we could do laundry and that was not the case.

Beautiful condo and Zihuatanejo was wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in Zihua. The weather was absolutely amazing. The walk from the condo to the beach is a hill but you have to work off the margaritas and guacamole somehow! Taxis are very convenient for those times you choose to ride. The location is very nice and the condo was beautiful and very comfortable. Condo staff were very helpful.

Paradise on La Ropa beach

  • 5 of 5
Just a week but seven days of real pleasure .Everything in that lovely condo have being made to have
an easy and pleasant life. We never saw my wife and I and we rent a lot around the world, a kitchen stock for a ¨chef¨ like that one ,nothing missing . We made nice lunches and dinners on the terrace big enough for four persons .The master bedroom with the view on the ocean is much than comfortable with the ensuite bathroom.
It's is really a five stars and we surely come again and again .
