I am a fisherman at heart and fell in love with Zihuatanejo on a fishing trip over 20 years ago. The area is wonderful and I come down at least once a month. My villas are labors of love and I take great pride in the pleasure they provide myself, friends and family.
Aharon or Jeannine Chen purchased this villa in 2002
I met Enrique Zozaya and began building Villa Encanatada in 2002. It took almost two years to complete. In the end what was created is a work of art. It is truly a little piece of heaven that was created here on earth.
The fourth floor sundeck has amazing views and is a great place to have some private sun tanning time.
Beautifully maintained villa with a superb staff and a fantasic view.
We were 4 couples looking to escape brutal weather in Chicago and couldn't have picked a better spot! We were nervous about sharing a house (have traveled together before, but always stayed at a resort) - but this was perfect! Every room had a view, private balcony and bathroom. The most wonderful outdoor living space that was just spectacularly relaxing and beautiful. But truly, what REALLY made our stay so heavenly, was the amazing staff. Truly, we are ruined for Mexican Food. Everything was so fresh and delicious. They were all so nice and friendly, but absolutely gave us our space, etc. We hated to leave. (And I almost don't want to give such a glowing review in order to keep it our secret, but...it really was wonderful!). A close walk to town - not that we actually left very often and a beach to snorkel from right down the road! Cannot thank you enough for sharing your home!
The property was fantastic, every need was met by the fantastic staff. Carlos was our family's favorite! Unfortunately, eating in town one evening at Restuarante Any, I picked up Camplybactor (from mishandled or undercooked chicken). It was 12 days of horrible intestinal illness and I landed in the ER. :( But this home? Amazing!
Me and my family rented Villa Encantada for Christmas and New Year's 2014. I can only give a rave review in all aspects: the accommodations, the staff, the food, the location, the swimming pool !!!, air conditioning in the bedrooms, and access to Wi-Fi and television. Luxury in every aspect of the word. We watched fireworks from the third story terrace, loved being able to walk to town, ate several times at the restaurants along the way, swam in the nearby cove, and appreciated having a driver to take us to the beaches on the other side of town. I felt the price was very reasonable for the holiday season. Nothing beats Zihuatanejo for a vacation in Mexica and Villa Encantada is the perfect place to stay. For groups larger than 10, the Villa next door, owned and managed by the same folks, is smaller and just as wonderful.
We stayed at this truly luxury villa right after Christmas 2014 and stayed through January 2nd, 2015. Our whole extended family (children, adults and Grandma) were extremely comfortable, pampered and very happy. Carlos, Socorro and Perla made the stay perfect, responding to all our varied needs The food was absolutely unparalleled. The Villa is so comfortable and beautiful. We did a lot of lounging around the pool. Being close to town, we walked downtown every morning to see the fresh catch of the day. The kids parasailed and jet skied to their hearts content at Playa La Ropa. We can't wait to return.
My wife and I stayed with a few our closest friends at this location and had the most amazing experience. The house is absolutely stunning, the views are amazing, and the staff become a part of your family. The food was incredible with traditional Mexican style flavors and was 100% made from scratch. We look forward to coming back in the future and bringing the kids to enjoy the house and the local culture.
La playa principal, which is the public beach located in front of the town. The municipal pier is located at one end. The local fisherman beach their skiffs here during the day. They fish at night and in the morning display and sell their catch to the local market and restaurants.
Playa la madera “wood beach” gets it’s name from the spanish colony days when it was the shipping point for mahogany, oak, pine and cedar wood cut from the local forests. This beach is reached by walking along a narrow, seaside trail which you can pick up on the other side of the museo arquelógico.
Playa la ropa is the longest beach in the area. In the 16th century a spanish galleon called the nao made the mistake of entering the bay, which was then a den for british buccaneers. The pirates fired on the galleon without even having to pull up anchor and the galleon was scuttled. It’s cargo of chinese silk clothing washed up all over the beach, which is how “clothes beach” got its name. To reach this beach it is easiest to take bus from downtown zihuatanejo.
Playa de las gatas, which is at the extreme southern end of the bay, is accessible by water taxi from the municipal pier or a footpath along the rocky coast from la ropa. There is no road. According to local legend a tarascan king named iréhpan and his family used this beach as a winter vacation retreat. An invasion of man-eating sharks in the bay prevented his family from swimming. So iréhpan ordered his slaves to build a stone breakwater off of the beach to keep the sharks out. Today this breakwater is overgrown with coral and offers the finest snorkeling and diving in the area. This beach gets it’s name from a species of harmless, whiskery nurse sharks that used to be common in the area. Open air fresh seafood restaurants line the beach and lounge chairs are available for rent.
