Why Dee Bulkley-Owner chose Zihuatanejo
A little history about our adventure to this beautiful paradise. We are an avid offshore fishing couple. After fishing here and in many different countries for about 10 years, we decided that we could have the best of all worlds, wonderful fishing, wonderful beaches wonderful weather and best of all, wonderful and sincere people. We found our oasis in this little laid-back unknown town known to the locals as Zihua. We hope that you will be as enchanted as we are.
What makes this Condo unique
The Marlin house is located close to good restaurants, within walking distance to town and beaches. La Ropa beach, (Beach of Clothes), is a five minute walk where you will find swimming, boating, para sailing, Hobie cats and kayaks, water skiing, banana boating and casual dining. Las Gatas beach (Beach of Cats) is located across the bay and can be reached by taking a water taxi from the town pier for 40 pesos, round trip. Great beach side restaurants and snorkeling. Sunset and night-time cruise boats, both sail and power are available during peak season. Most renters say that a week is not enough time to see and enjoy all that Zihua has to offer

We just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at the Marlin House. Can't say enough good things about this beautiful unit!
Elie, the Property Manager was there to meet my flight and kindly made a stop to pick up some milk and wine to get us started at the condo. On arrival he showed us around the condo so we could get settled in. Such a nice young man.
This was a girls getaway vacation and the unit was perfect for us. With 2 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms it was an ideal set up so we could each have our own space.
We used the kitchen everyday for breakfast in the mornings and for snacks and it was well equipped for our stay and we were able to enjoy our morning coffee and afternoon wine on the balcony off the master bedroom.
There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room and with a beautiful breeze off the ocean we never had a need for the air conditioning.
Santa the maid was a lovely young woman who came to clean twice a week and kept the unit impeccable! She also does massages, but unfortunately we ran out of time before we could arrange for her to come to the condo for massages.
Dee also has a binder full of valuable information on the unit and the area which was very helpful. Some great restaurant recommendations!
We took advantage of taxis often and they are very reasonable. The friendly staff at security will order a taxi for you and are there within minutes to take you anywhere you need to go. They also drive you right back up to the top of the hill when you return. We would usually walk into town for dinner and grab a taxi back.
The pools were beautiful and refreshing and there was always a nice breeze. Never crowded and we met so many really nice people who gathered for an afternoon swim.
Lastly..the view. Beyond words just how beautiful the view in. Couldn't get enough of it!
Thanks Dee for sharing your unit with us. We felt so at home during our two week stay. Highly recommend the Marlin House.
thank you for the great review. I'm so happy that you and your friends felt at home. Hopefully we can connect in the future.
Amazing Views are just the start
Absolutely loved the Marlin House in Zihuatanejo. Stayed 6 wonderful nights at this incredible property to escape the cold and snow of Salt Lake City. From start to finish the experience was smooth. Dee got back very quickly upon our request to rent her place and sent us lots of great information about the property and surrounding area. Upon arrival we were met at the airport and driven to the condo. The unit had everything we could have asked for during our stay and more- beach towels, fully stocked kitchen and very comfortable and spacious rooms. The staff at the resort were great to work with and even set us for a dinner cooked in our unit with Carmen (highly recommended!!).
La Ropa beach is a quick (but steep) walk away with perfect sand, warm water and lots of fun restaurants and bars. Getting around in the area is very simple- most things are within walking distance and busses/taxis are simple to use.
Highly recommend this condo!
Thank you for the great review. Hopefully we can connect in the ffuture. Again, thank you for choosing our little piece of the paradise in Zihuatanejo
Lovely, Safe, Supportive, great Location, and Clean!
Traveling with my two sons ages 12 and 14 I was pleased to land in a beautiful location with great security, access to pools and beach and concierge services. Eliezer greeted us at airport and helped us get settled in. Whenever we required a taxi we could easily have one quickly secured from the exit gate on our way out. 5 minute walk to La Ropa beach where there are many great places to eat and hang out. So nice to have full service kitchen as I had a few authentic Mexican meals prepared by a friend who lives there. We enjoyed the view - so beautiful over the bay always and the sunsets are not to be missed. Zihua is a fabulous city to visit. The condo was very clean - in fact impeccably clean and free of insects that can be abundant in the area. Eliezer arranged for a massage for me in the condo - very nice. My boys loved the condo as well. Both rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well equipped. The master bedroom is like a small apartment with a lovely patio and view. Really you cannot get tired of that view. Also - plenty of fans and the a/c in the bedrooms works beautifully. You are well cared for here - everything you need to have your own al la carte visit to Zihua and feel right at home - safe, supported, beautiful and clean. So much gratitude for all the helpful and kind people supporting my family for this holiday week in Zihua!
A Picture Perfect Paradise!!
From the moment we first walked into We Marlin House we were in awe. The views are stunning! Dee and Mike very graciously greeted us with cold beverages and a box of chocolates. What a great start to our birthday vacation. The house is well equipped and Eliezer is just a phone call away if we needed anything. The 2 infinity pools were very refreshing and provided equally stunning views. A walk to La Ropa was only 5 minutes and a trip into Zihua was a 15 Minute walk but taxis were also readily available.
Thanks Dee and Mike for an amazing stay! We will be back!!
No words!! Ok, maybe a few...
I’m not sure I can muster up adjectives that do Marlin House justice. This was my first solo vacation and it was unforgettable. Eliezer was waiting when I arrived in Zihua with a giant smile and a friendly hug. He stopped at Mega so that I could get some groceries…pushing the cart around and helping me to translate the things on my list. As we drove to the condo, he pointed out the best places to wander and eat in town. Being solo, I may have been a bit high maintenance for Eliezer but he was kind and helpful the entire time. I’m fairly certain they don’t make gentlemen like that in the US.
What can I say about La Casa Que Ve al Mar that has not already been said? It is stunningly beautiful…both the perfectly manicured landscaping and the spectacular surroundings created by Mother Nature. She pulled out all of the stops in that place.
Marlin House is a dream made of adobe. I must’ve wandered around the condo for 30 minutes just in awe. Dee and Mike have anticipated perfectly the needs of their guests. I am rather picky about beds and pillows. They were more comfy than mine at home. It was in the mid to upper 80’s the whole week and being from Seattle, I was concerned I would feel like I was trapped in a hot yoga class at night, but the bedrooms have wonderful air-conditioning.
My one warning is the driveway up to the condo. It’s a doozy! Bring shoes that are not only great for walking, but comfy walking up and down a steep hill made of large stones. And after a couple of to.die.for margaritas, don’t be surprised if you have to stop halfway up to catch your breath…puff puff puff. And yes, the guard was giggling as he watched me.
Couples, families, or solo this is the place to stay in this lovely town. I will be back without question.
Thank you so much for the lovely review of our town condo and especially the Marlin house hopefully you will come back to enjoy a little bit of paradise
Property was exactly as stated on VRBO. Beautiful view, clean condo.
I would definitely stay at the Marlin House again. Dee, the owner, was totally responsive to any questions I had. Absolutely 5 stars.
