About Mollie Huebner

We looked for 5 years all over Mexico from Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco to Cozamel, and just fell in love with Zihuatanejo. 'Zihua' is still a bit undiscovered and it's not a tourist filled area with loud music and crowds. It's got ALL of the amenities you could want (massages, infinity pools, beautiful beaches, etc.) and it's simply magic. Once you visit, I bet you will agree that you have found true Paradise!

Mollie Huebner purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mollie and Tom,

We wanted to send you an e-mail THANKING YOU for such a wonderful stay at Casa Romantica in the Casa Que Ve Al Mar in Zihuatanejo, on La Ropa.



We also figured you might appreciate a testimonial regarding the services you provided us as we can't say enough about how grateful we are to have had the opportunity to stay at Casa Romantica and enjoy our honeymoon there!



From the minute we inquired about the Casa Romantica, Mollie was instrumental in our decision to have our wedding on La Ropa Beach.



We wanted to have a beautiful beach wedding in Mexico, and had checked out quite a few locations before finding the Casa Que Ve Al Mar. We loved the idea of having the wedding in Zihuatanejo, right away, once we saw that the beaches were pristine with a very romantic setting.



We had looked over all the condos at Casa Que Ve Al Mar before making our decision to inquire about Casa Romantica...What drew us to Casa Romantica was the spacious floor plan, beautiful furnishings and the awesome views from the front building. We loved the couches right next to the bayside windows & the sunsets were absolutely AMAZING!



In addition to the romantic condo, Mollie was extremely helpful in finding other condos for us to rent in the same complex. Our families and friends rented 7 condos total (25 people) and we visited all the other condos. We couldn't wait to get back to Casa Romantica. The other condos were nice too, but we really enjoyed Casa Romantica the most! It simply IS Casa "Romantica"!



We also truly appreciated "Rosalinda", the maid. She came Mon. - Sat. and was very sweet and helpful, always had a smile on her face and was friendly and honest.



We brought our own computer, but did not need it as a wireless laptop was provided at Casa Romantica. We were able to download all pictures right away & send wedding photos to friends not there!



Well, what more can I say, really?



We look forward to many more returns to your beautiful "home away from home" and hope to send many of our friends there, as well!



We want to do it all over again...WEDDING and all! We had the most memorable time of our lives, thanks to such a gracious host and hostess!



Also, please feel free give people my e-mail address for any additional questions as I would be quite honored to recommend Casa Romántica, and Zihuatanejo as a Wedding Destination for an experience of a lifetime!



Until next time,



Charmaine & Jeff Jones

Gorgeous Casa Romantica !❤️

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home after spending 7 nights in Casa Romantica! The condo was perfect for 2 couples, plenty of room, large balcony, well equipped kitchen and beautiful views. We spent most of our time on the balcony overlooking the beautiful pools and listening to the waves on La Ropa beach. We arrived to chilled wine and fresh flowers. Mollie was extremely easy to work with and provides lots of local information. The grounds and pools are impeccable, the staff welcoming and helpful. Playa la Ropa is a easy walk with plenty of small restaurants to spend the day under a umbrella. Cab rides are plentiful and very inexpensive. The town of Zihuatanejo is a gem. We purchased fresh eggs, tortillas, cheese , fruits and vegetables. There are many sidewalk cafes, restaurants with music and the food is incredible! We've traveled to many tourist destinations in Mexico, and there is no comparison if you are looking for a relaxing , kick back, inexpensive little gem on the pacific. We will definitely be booking a trip to Zihua and Casa Romantica for next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for your kind words and just wish we had gotten here early enough to meet! I really appreciate the way you enjoyed Casa Romantica and excited that you are planning on coming back.. As far as getting "glued" to the balcony - we understand exactly as the view is absolutely intoxicating and mesmerizing! We are out on the balcony now, after a day at La Ropa Beach and then the habit forming infinity pools - going to sleep like a baby tonight and you are so right - this place is a little gem on the Pacific! Thanks again, Ronda! Mollie from Casa Romantica in "Z"

Incredible view

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister and I just returned home from an amazing stay at Casa Romantica. The grounds and pools are beautiful and the location could not be better! There are a fair amount of stairs getting up to the condo from the road , but we did not mind. The condo itself has absolutely everything one needs. We enjoyed the well stocked cooking facilities and the washer and dryer. We only needed air conditioning at night in the bedrooms as the breeze during the day kept the unit quite comfortable. Thank you Mollie for sharing your beautiful abode with me and my family!

A gorgeous vacation spot. Decorated beautifully!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in Casa Romantica. It's spacious and lovely. The view? Perfection! The bedrooms are large and inviting, both have nice bathrooms. If you feel like cooking (We didn't, Zihua has SO MANY wonderful places to dine!), the kitchen has everything you'll need. The elevator is just outside the front door. Enjoy the pool and gaze at Zihuatanejo's perfect beach. Or, take a stroll and head there yourself, it's not far. Call a cab, they'll be there in just minutes, and GO TO TOWN! It's wonderful. Shops galore and the friendliest people you'll ever meet. No Spanish, no worries! You'll get around fine. Okay, learn a few words.

Have a great time at Cass Romantica! We'll absolutely come back.

Beautiful place in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Zihuatanejo for 15 years - so we already love it there, but a few years ago we needed to find another place to stay. We feel so fortunate to have found Casa Romantica. As you can see from photos, the view cannot be beat. The "balcony" is actually an outdoor living room and eating space. It extends the entire width of the condo. The furniture is comfortable with perfect spots for morning coffee and evening cocktails - always with the breathtaking views including sunsets that turn the bay waters pink and orange. These views can be seen from the master bedroom also. We hosted a few cocktail/ sunset parties while we were there. Our guests have all been people we've met while staying at Casa Romantica. The infinity pools are great places to meet friendly people as well as enjoy the views. Taxis are plentiful and easy to catch, but it's a nice walk to downtown and a quick walk to one of Mexico's most beautiful beaches - great for walking and swimming. The owner of the condo makes sure we feel comfortable and happy during our stay, and truly we could not be happier. Casa Romantica is a beautiful place and in a beautiful place.

Owner's Response: Hi there, Rick, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write a bit on your stay at Casa Romantica and I look forward to having you two back in 2018! It's kind and thoughtful guests like yourself that make it so much more "fun" than "work" to take care of my wonderful guests at Casa Romantica! Please just think of this as your "Home Away from Home"! Thanks again, Mollie

The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Casa Romantica on Thanksgiving Day, having moved from another condo in Zihua. We were met by Andres (security) and Dolce Maria (on-site manager), and were quickly escorted to the condo. Despite studying and staring at the pictures for months, nothing prepares you for the breathtaking beauty upon walking into the condo. The view is simply incredible! The condo itself is spacious, well-appointed and quiet...and immediately felt like "home". The sunsets from the deck are worth every penny! We spent 3 weeks there and it was perfect. The other owners and renters were all pleasant and helpful, without being intrusive. The grounds, the gardens, the pools - are impeccable. My hubby enjoyed the satellite television with ample US channels and plenty of US sports! Mollie was great to work with - super responsive and very helpful. I could go on and on, but we've already booked Casa Romantica AGAIN for Nov/Dec 2017, so that should tell you all you need to know. =D You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Wendy and I truly appreciate your kind words. Yes, it is very easy to just get glued to the panoramic views from the balcony, Master Bedroom, Kitchen, etc. Also those Infinity Pools are always perfect and relaxing and the men are excited to be able to watch football, (I just added a new and bigger LCD TV for the living area), while we are shopping, swimming and relaxing. I am so delighted that you are coming back and I truly appreciate your taking the time out of your busy schedule to give your feedback about your recent stay at Casa Romantica! Here's to another great "next time", right? Thanks again so much! Mollie from Casa Romantica
