Beautiful, unique property with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible home that was imported from Bali and rebuilt here in Zihuatanejo. The amount of love and attention to detail that Susana put into constructing this home is remarkable and greatly appreciated.

The views are incredible. I love the open air - the full front wall of the house is a retractable door that slides open. There are a few more mosquito's and bugs on the hillside because of the open air design, but I'll gladly put up with a few bugs in exchange for being closer to nature any day.

I had to make an emergency trip to Houston for two days of my trip. Susana was so sweet to email me to make sure everything was ok. Susana is based in Europe but so attentive it was like she lived down the street.

The neighbors are super friendly. They saw us on the beach and bought us a drink. We later had some local tequila at their home later that evening.

Zihuatanejo is a special place. Renting this Bali home is an amazing way to experience this coastal town. Don't hesitate renting this home or visiting Zihuat!

A new perspective on Zihuatanejo

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond and answer any questions before and during our visit. We stayed for a month and the house worked out well for us. Everything was new and very clean, the bathroom and kitchen were nice and the bed very comfy. We spent a lot of time on the veranda watching the action on the bay and ocean and enjoying the spectacular sunsets. The pool is nice and the flowers and landscaping are beautiful We are longtime visitors to Zihuatanejo but this was a new location for us. We really liked the Cerro del Viagia neighborhood. The views are fantastic and it is a great place to take a walk for a different perspective on the area. Everyone is friendly and it was great to have your neighbor nearby for orientation and questions. While taxi service is available it was very helpful to have the use of a car as we went out every day to La Ropa or into town or the grocery.
