The house is comfortable and perfect for families. On the main level of the home you will find a living room, large dining room (8 pp) and an open kitchen with a breakfast nook. 1 ½ bathrooms are also on this level. French doors from the living room open onto a covered patio, pool and BBQ.

Our home is centrally located, only a few blocks to Playa Madeira Beach, a 20 minute walk to the beautiful Playa la Ropa and 15 minutes to the central market in the downtown area. One hundred yards from the house there is a corner food market where you can find any grocery you need, from fresh baked bread to ice cold beer. Two blocks away there is a pharmacy.

People in Zihuatanejo are friendly, nice and helpful. I have always felt safe traveling with my family and friends. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in fishing, dining or a cook, as I have connections with locals in the area.

The price is competitive with other rentals in the area.

Great house - beware of Joel

  • 5 of 5

The pros:

The house is great: clean and well-kept with good quality furniture. The beds are comfortable, high-end mattresses.

Pietro was a very pleasant and helpful host, and went out of his way to help every time we had an issue. I highly recommend reading the guide he left behind with all the restaurant reviews and tips on what to see and do around Zihua.

The kitchen is very well equipped, good quality equipment, sharp knives, lots of cutlery and pots.

Shower pressure in the bathrooms is great.

The pool is clean and pleasant, the poolboy came twice in one week. The back patio is ideal for relaxation.

The housekeeper is nice, cheerful and does a great job.

The cons:

The location of the house is not ideal, but this is reflected in the very fair price Pietro charges for the house. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk, the giant supermarket (Comercial) is 10 minutes away. Taxis are frequent and will take you to the beach for 40 pesos.

The only negative thing I can say about the house is, that it is sorely lacking mosquito nets on the windows. Every morning we were eaten alive. Apply mosquito repellent to your ankles before you have breakfast, or you will have 15 bites within ten minutes. Thankfully they don't bite over the knee.

The warning:

Beware of Joel, the taxi driver who is sorta attached to the house, who will try to "help" you. He is a crook, a liar and a cheat.

We agreed that his wife would cook a 3 course surprise birthday lunch for my wife for a fix (but relatively high) amount. They turned up with one less course than agreed, without any explanation whatsoever to what happened to one of the mains, and tried to charge 200 pesos more for ingredient costs, even though it was agreed in writing (over texts) that ingredients were included. The food was very nice but the mood was rotten.

Previously the same day he sold us a canoe trip for a 25% markup over the fix price, and tried to convince us to go on a boat trip for 50% more than the fixed price of the fisherman's collective.

Magnificent house in a unassuming neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had more than enough space. Because we love to cook we found the spacious, well equipped kitchen to be a fantastic bonus. The villa-like home is beautifully tiled and well kept, with ample space to relax both inside and out within its walled perimeter. The sleeping areas are air conditioned and there are several balconies. Small shops are available within the block, and the beach is actually very close. Zihuantenejo downtown is also quite close. For touring one can just hail a a very affordable taxi at the corner and travel to more distant beaches or marketplaces. In the neighbourhood, being able to speak some Spanish is useful, but in the tourist areas, in town, in most establishments, people speak English. If you love food, there are so many restaurants with superb food, and beachside eateries where you can bask, swim and feast. We loved every day and hope to return. Thanks Pietro!

Beautiful Mexican house!. The decorations, style, pool, rooms, kitchen… everything was wonderful. We had a peaceful & beautiful vacation. The outdoor grill and outside dining area was perfect, we spent the evenings eating and watching everyone having fun in the pool. Fresh tortillas just in the corner. The beaches and market also at a short distance. Beautiful view from the balcony and the house surroundings. Friendly staff welcoming us and arranging taxi transportation and activities.

Una casa muy bonita y acogedora. ¡Gracias por hacernos sentido en nuestra propia casa!. La decoración, alberca, cuartos cocina… todo hermoso. Tuvimos unas vacaciones bonitas y pacificas. El patio con su área para comer y cocinar estuvo perfecto. Pasamos las tardes comiendo en familia y disfrutando viendo a la familia en la alberca. Tortillas frescas en la esquina de la casa. Las playas y el mercado a una distancia corta. Bellas vistas del balcón y alrededor de la casa. Los empleados recibieron amistosamente y nos ayudaron a buscar taxi y actividades.

Gracias!

wha a great place to spend a holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. The pool was excellent and welcome after a walk. The beaches are a short walk. The market, a short walk. Great restaurants abound within walking distance.

The support staff insured that the house was always clean and well maintained. The service provided to go touring, fishing and site seeing was terrific.

We recommend this home highly, except in February, because we plan on booking again.

Definitely a FOUR STAR stay.

Stayed here for a month over the Christmas holidays. Great location close to everything. House was well equipped with every thing a person could want. Pool was great. Lots of room for the family. The outdoor space was great for relaxing and the grill presented some great meals. Can hardly wait to come back.
