About the property

Luxury oceanfront 1-bedroom condo

Casa Sandbar is carved into the oceanfront cliff halfway between two world class beaches (La Ropa and Madera) in Zihuatanejo.

The bedroom is air conditioned or can be left open to enjoy the on-shore breeze assisted by ceiling fans. King size bed, huge closet, in-room safe and the highest quality linens.

The fully appointed chefs kitchen has a gas oven, microwave, fridge, and all of the dishes and cooking utensils required to inspire your culinary skills.

The suite is a total of 650 square feet. An outdoor concept bathroom features a rain shower and a personal infinity pool with views to downtown and Madera beach.

The pool deck is highlighted by an amazing salt water infinity pool perched some 80 feet above the gentle surf break. The stunning view is west across Zihuatanejo Bay.

Original handpicked art from local and regional artists enhances the modern Mexican architecture, and all furniture was crafted by local woodworkers using parota (teak) and bamboo.

A state of the art wireless internet system provides signal everywhere on the property so you can stay connected. Daily housekeeping (except Sundays), blow dryer, amenities, drinking water, iron, towels and beach/pool towels are all provided.

Staff can arrange just about anything including wedding planners, private chefs, spa services, yoga, fishing, golf, sight-seeing excursions and more. If you can think of it, we can make it happen. Alternatively, if you want to be left alone just sit back and relax.

About Barry & Sandra

Our dream of waterfront property in Zihuatanejo was realized in 2012 when we purchased the land, designed and built Casa Sandbar. We are long time residents of Vancouver, Canada and we look forward to sharing this special place in paradise with you!

Barry & Sandra purchased this condo in 2015

Why Barry & Sandra chose Playa La Ropa

Zihuatanejo is a laid back, traditional fishing village. The Bay is ringed with 4 beaches that each have a unique personality. Our waterfront property faces west providing 180 degrees of unobstructed view.

What makes this condo unique

Casa Sandbar is just far enough away to feel the tranquility of isolation, but close enough to step into the vibrancy of Zihuatanejo. Two beaches are within an easy ten minute stroll. The choice in Zihuatanejo is having a great view which leaves you facing steep hills and stair climbs, or being close to the beaches. We love how accessible both La Ropa and Madera beaches are - just a 250 yard stroll. But the view is what sold us. It truly is magic.

Paradise at its finest.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sandbar is an amazing place to stay, glad we found it, the view and sunsets are things you only see on TV and in magazines. Right next door is one of the finest places around to eat and that’s to the left not the right. The Sandbar is in amazing shape, the staff help with our every need. We walked to town and the beach everyday, the walk isn’t for everyone but we found it refreshing. The only drawback on this trip has been a few of the locals, we learned very quickly to ask if your taking a cab before you enter, how much. The cab prices are all over the map. All in all the Sandbar is our new place to stay, a solid 5 stars of relaxation.

Luxurious condo in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Casa Sandbar! The property was exactly as advertised... and in some ways even better. The open concept condo was amazing... how nice to hear the waves roll in as you sip your coffee in the morning or your tequila at night! The location was perfect as long as you can walk hills. The town of Zihautanejo with many great local restaurants and shops and a true village feel is a nice walk away and Playa la Ropa (best beach in our opinion) is a short walk away. If you want consistent sunny and hot weather, Zihautanejo is the place to be and this condo is the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring or at the beach. The infinity pool is marvelous and the views are stunning.

Amazing views and a Wonderful place to visit.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sandbar really makes your trip wonderful. From the stunning views of the bay to the friendly staff everything you could want is right there. The room we stayed in had a lovely deck with a table and chairs to watch the sunset and a little pool to relax in.

The owners are friendly and helpful, for instance they gave us some great recommendations for restaurants within walking distance and helped us find transportation on a day that we needed it. The location is in walking distance to two different beaches and both are beautiful.

Owner's Response: We wish your stay could have been longer! Thanks for mentioning the cooling pool. Each of our 5 condominiums in the building has a personal cooling pool, large enough to hold 2 people comfortably! So refreshing and a great place to enjoy sunset and a tropical drink.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you here! We hope your time here provided lots of great memories of Mexico, Zihuatanejo and Casa Sandbar. Thanks for mentioning the fact you can actually WALK most places from Casa Sandbar. Zihua is hilly but our location is close to downtown and the 2 main beaches. We hope to see you here again soon. Saludos!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful - very clean and well maintained. The view of the bay is amazing with incredible sunsets every night.Loved relaxing on the deck and using the plunge pool to cool off when it got too hot. It was nice to have air conditioning in the bedroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful from carrying groceries to calling for a taxi or whatever your needs were.

Barry and Sandra were on-site to welcome us and give a tour of the facilities and some excellent pointers and advice. Truly wanted to make sure we had everything we needed and were able to relax and enjoy our vacation. The info sheet they sent ahead of time was very helpful.

Thank you so much for sharing your Mexico home.

Mike and Jill

What a Fantastic Experience! You will feel right at home, if your home is in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone at Casa Sandbar is truly dedicated to making sure your experience in Zihuatanejo is unforgettable. From the hosts Barry and Sandra, whom I am convinced are the luckiest people on the planet to live there. To Carmen your personal shopper and the whole staff which are the kindest and most accommodating people.

The location is perfect over the top of the ocean listening to waves over the rocks, you can't help but relax. You won't want to leave your place when you do it is in a great location, quite yet close to everything. It's a lovely walk to 4 or 5 great restaurants, two beaches, and the vibrant non-touristy town.

The rooms are all amazing with cooling pools on the decks over the top of the ocean. Slip a margarita from your well-equipped kitchen and enjoy the open spacious room without a care in the world.

You will want to book your next trip before you leave.

Thank you Barry, Sandra, Carmen and especially Letty for the memorable trip. See you next time.

Casa Sandbar is located in Zihuatanejo, in the southern Mexico state of Guerrero. Guerrero is famous for it’s beautiful beaches, year round tropical temperatures and the amazing Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains that provide the incredible backdrop to the stunning views.

Zihuatanejo Bay is ringed by multiple beaches, each with it’s own charms and personality. The bay itself was once a hide out for Pirates that patrolled these waters searching for Spanish galleons to plunder. Prior to that it was a getaway for the royalty of the sophisticated indigenous tribes that inhabited the area.

During the 60’s and 70’s it became a refuge for the stars with John Wayne and many others enjoying the anonymity they had here. The tradition continues today with occasional “rumors” of celebrities being in town, but always with that wink of “We don’t bother them...”

Zihuatanejo, also known as Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo for the neighboring tourist destination of Ixtapa, was formerly a sleepy fishing village and little known destination. These days it has a slightly more updated feel, boasting fine dining, live music and an abundance of activities. However, it still has its core laid back atmosphere. You can still buy fish, fresh from the water, in the early mornings along the waterfront. Relax in a beach front restaurant while Mariachis serenade you with traditional Mexican ballads. Wander the Mercado and buy fruits and vegetables that were on the vine just the day before and be greeted everywhere you go with warm, welcoming smiles.

Casa Sandbar is just far enough away to feel the tranquility of isolation, but close enough to step into the vibrancy of this traditional Mexican town.
