Our vacation Villa lies on a beautiful and unspoiled stretch of secluded beach just south of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa. This private little piece of paradise gets you away from the crowds and high-rise hotels for a real escape vacation. Close enough to the tourist action when desired but away from it all for quiet relaxation!
The Villa: The upstairs houses the master bedroom with a king size bed, a front balcony, a rear balcony and a full bath with shower. The second bedroom upstairs has two single beds and a full bath with shower. The third bedroom on the main floor has one queen bed and a full bath with shower. All villa bedrooms face the magnificent pool and over 60,000 sq feet of well -manicured lawns and tropical gardens. Downstairs features a living room, dining room, full kitchen and a palapa covered patio with the ocean view.
The villa accommodations combine all the modern amenities with the contact of nature through it's nearby lagoons, mountains and coconut plantations as well, of course, with the sea. This vacation rental takes you away from the mainstream tourism and gives you a chance to enjoy Mexico. What's more, this still secret vacation villa is only 15 minutes from Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International Airport and 20 minutes in to downtown Zihuatanejo.
The Beach: Many 'beach' rentals offer you a 'view' of the sea and a one to two block walk to the ocean. At our beach villa you are close enough to hear the waves breaking nearby and smell the salt air while enjoying unsurpassed views of the Pacific. Directly in front of our vacation home lays the grandness of Playa Blanca.
Kilometer upon kilometer of waves and white sand still untouched by modern trappings. From your palapa covered porch watch frolicking dolphins and migrating whales. Marvel at the grace of the giant frigate birds and the effortless glide of the numerous pelicans. At our villa, you will learn why Zihuatanejo was the dream destination of Tim Robbin's character in 'The Shawshank Redemption'. Come experience all the reasons you vacation 'On the Beach'....Leave your cares at home and relax at Villa Playa Blanca.
The Area: If you are looking for Mexican authenticity, the sort found in a small fishing village, simply take a stroll to the end of Playa Blanca to Barra de Potosi. If you love and respect nature, you will love La Barra. If it is tranqility and a place away from the crowds that you seek, you will love La Barra. If it is a stretch of clean and isolated
beach interrupted only by it's wildlife, you will love La Barra. If you want a Gin Fizz, fancy shops, and the like, it will not be for you. What you can find here are countless 'enramadas' (palm thatched covered restaurants) lining the beach and mangrove-covered lagoon where you can relax in a hammock, have a drink and enjoy fresh seafood at extremely reasonable prices. You can kayak on the bay or in the lagoon, horseback ride on the beach or explore a part of the jungle on the other side of the hill. You can take a guided boat tour of the large estuary and see the salt-producing flats and many exotic forms of local wildlife! Camera is a must!
We have been enjoying our family vacations in Mexico for almost 20 years! We all love the ocean, beach, and atmosphere of Mexico.
We chose this destination for our Christmas vacation 2010, and completely fell in love with it! We noticed that Villa #4 was for sale..made some inquiries and voila!
