About Jeannie & Paul
We live in a small community in Minnesota and enjoy the outdoors and great beaches. Winter isn't our favorite time of year and puts a damper on our outdoor activities but this small piece of paradise affords us well when we feel the urge to get away from the snow.
Jeannie & Paul purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Jeannie & Paul chose Colonia La Madera
We'd been coming to Zihuatanejo off and on for 15 years and enjoyed the beauty of it all and just being in the heart of the community with the locals. No large fancy hotels or malls. Very low crime rate and wonderful family oriented people all around.
What makes this Condo unique
We bought this condominium sight unseen, only pictures. As you can see it is beautiful. Though we love our home in Minnesota, this condo takes us right to the authentic beauty of Mexico.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Had a really great week in Zihua, thanks in part to an excellent place to stay. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach, and no more than10 minutes to the heart of town and marina.
The condo is very nicely equipped and quite comfy. While we didn't spend much time in the kitchen, you'd find anything you need. The bed is super comfy and the a.c. works flawlessly to keep you cool. Plumbing as good as we've seen anywhere in Mexico.
The grounds are attractive, quiet and we felt completely safe in and around the complex. The few workers we saw were polite and helpful.
We would (and will) 100% stay here again.
Thanks Holli. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and everything Zih has to offer. You are welcome back any time. :)

Perfect place in a perfect area for a perfect vacation!
We just returned from our 14 night stay at Casa Ceiba in Zihuatanejo. Jeannie & Paul’s condo was perfect for us in a great area and close to all amenities Zihuat has to offer. This accommodation was very clean, tastefully decorated with Mexican treasures and vibrant colours. The condo was very well equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your time there. There are lots of options if you need ice, beer, pop, milk, etc. within a block or two. If you need groceries, there is a large Mega store about a 20-minute walk away. The pool was just steps outside this ground floor condo and well kept daily by the property maintenance staff. The property manager, Jacqueline, was very helpful with our stay from meeting us when we first arrived to give us the keys, showing us around and how everything worked and explaining the general complex rules. Naty the maid was very nice and cleaned the condo every Saturday during our stay. We mingled with the other owners and enjoyed their happy hour every day.
If you are considering this property for your vacation, we highly recommend it. It is gated, secure and clean. The residents will welcome you and help with any questions you may have.
Thanks to Jeannie and Paul for sharing your home with us. It was truly relaxing and a great place to recharge your batteries.
Robert and Kathryn, thank you so much for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the accommodations. Also, thank you for the jelly. We are back in Zih and got the story from Cathy regarding this. It does in fact live up to it's story and is delicious! You are welcome back anytime. We heard from others you were perfect guests.

Great condo, great area, great vacation
I just returned from a 16 night stay at Casa Cieba. It's a lovely property and the condo is comfortable and well equipped. It is in a good area and was quiet and safe. Once you walk through the secure gates, you are in an oasis. It's an easy walk to the beach and a walk down Adelita, past all the great restaurants, brings you to the Playa Principal and the shopping area. You can also walk to the Soriana, the large grocery store. It's well stocked and I found everything I needed....and more. The people who live in the complex and other guests, were welcoming and helpful.
The owners have done an excellent job on making their condo a home away from home. They have made improvements and are open to suggestions.
My suggestion is that you book this place. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to return next year.
I brought way too many clothes. Wore less then half. It was muggy and I found that loose fitting dresses were best. There are many for sale there. Next time I'll leave room in the suitcase. Do bring at least two swim suits. Things take awhile to dry. There is a laundromat around the corner. Everything is convenient to this condo. One of the reasons I chose it. Am so happy I did. You will be too. Pat W.
Pat, thank you so much for your kind words and we would absolutely love to host you again. We heard you were the perfect guest! We are so glad you love it as much as we do. Along with our property manager Jacquie, we have worked hard to try and make sure everything is available to accommodate everyone. We strive to please! Hope to hear from you again next year.

Great Owner Participation in the rental process. Assisting with initial questions and concerns in a timely manner. Owners, on-site Manager Jaqueline (Jackie) was just as helpful and assistive. Property was clean, fully stocked with expected utensils and wares and ready for my arrival. Jackie had a driver waiting for me at the airport as requested. Jackie also contacted me a couple of times during my stay to ensure everything was going as expected.
This is a first floor condo, which means exterior windows are accessible from the outside of the condo complex. The windows are protected with security iron bars. The window issue was not an issue for me, but could be for some. All in all, excellent 1 Bedroom Condo with a great patio, next to the pool. Large closet with small safe for valuables. Total Condo inside footage about 1000 sq. ft. Patio 200 sq. ft. These are both an estimate.
Great ownership and local management.I'll be using this unit anytime I am not in need of a large space.
Thank you Jerry! It was a pleasure having you and Naty and Jacquie much appreciated the tip for their hard work in making your experience pleasurable. We couldn't do it without them. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
