So Well Cared For
We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Arrullo. The venue was perfect for our stay with our daughters and with our friends - a suite for our family and a separate suite for our friends. Taking in breakfast in the comfort of the expansive thatch roof covered lounge (perfect setting for a cocktail party) before taking a dunk in the private pool and sunning on the private deck was a treat. Convenient access to the Centro, shops, banks and restaurants was a key benefit for our crew. Equally nice was the walk from the beach to the Casa a stone's throw distant.
"Ask and ye shall receive" - the quality of care we received was fantastic. Leo and Silvia provided all that we needed for our stay and more. Personal grocery shopping, meal preparation (Silvia has impressive culinary skills), arranging transportation, making reservations, negotiating on our behalf, hand-delivering us to locations, taking us back in when our flight was cancelled and helping with alternate transport! Above and beyond the call of duty, thank you.
All in all, a memory definitely worth repeating!
Amazing Property, Amazing Hosts!
Our family stayed at Casa Arrullo for 2 weeks in Feb/Mar of 2019. The entire experience was great. Gaby was a pleasure to deal with, went out of her way to answer all of our queries, and even purchased a crib for our baby to sleep in while we were there.
The location of the property is fantastic. A walk of under 10 minutes to reach the town center along the beach boardwalk, and restaurants only a few minutes away behind the property. The property itself is located a few steps up from the boardwalk right at the edge of Playa Madera. Playa Madera’s beach is not quite as nice as Playa La Ropa, however it is relatively quiet and only 10 seconds away from the property. There are multiple beach restaurants along the beach, with chairs/loungers available at not cost (unlike Playa La Ropa).
The property itself is great. You enter the property at the pool level with the bungalow entrances located a half story above, accessible via stairs. Each bungalow contained 2 bedrooms, both with AC that worked well, a bathroom, and a living area with table, couch and a balcony. All were in great condition, and extremely clean. The next level up is the amazing open air palapa living area. The photos don’t really do justice to how great a space this is, or how large. In addition to the kitchen, there is a large dining table, 2 hammocks, and tons of seating. A great place to sit and enjoy the sounds of the ocean (although it would be nice if there was some seating available near the edge to truly enjoy the view).
Lastly, our hoses, Leo and Silvia. It’s truly hard to say enough good things about them, they are wonderful people. They keep the property impeccably clean and really go above and beyond to make the stay an experience to remember. In addition to the delightful breakfast served daily, we had Silvia prepare dinner for us on two occasions, which were some of the best meals we had on the entire vacation. For one meal in particular it was for a birthday of one of the members of our family. Leo, Silvia and family went out of their way to make it an extraordinary experience, setting up a dining table near the pool, hanging up balloons and setting out candles for us to enjoy the evening past the sunset. They made it a very special night that our family will remember always. Both Leo and Silvia were also great with our kids, - they really felt like part of our family by the end of the trip. I would recommend this property to anyone!
A piece of Paradise in Zihuatanejo
Gaby, the owner was very responsive. Booking was easy.
Casa Arrullo is located right on Playa La Madera. Easy access to the beach and close to many shops and restaurants in town. We really enjoyed our stay. It was quiet and very relaxing. The staff, Leo and Silvia, were welcoming and very attentive. Met us at checkin, took us shopping and makes fabulous Margaritas. Silvia is an amazing chef. She prepared us a dinner one night that was one of the best meals of our vacation. The house was clean and well appointed - a pool with a large thatched roof open living room on the top floor. The layout is good for extended families or two small families - two bungalows each with a queen room, two twins room and a sitting room - on the second floor. There are some steep stairs which may be an issue for people with mobility issues but for us it was perfect. It was a very enjoyable stay. We hope to return again soon. Thank you Gaby, Leo and Silvia!
A Beach Retreat
We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Arrullo. The view from every room and terrace is of the entire bay and it is absolutely stunning!
It is a very large villa with 2 bungalows, each with 2 bedrooms, and a private sitting room. There was plenty of space for the 8 of us, both in the bungalows, in the palapa upstairs and on the patio/terrace. The infinity pool overlooks the bay and is the perfect temperature all of the time.
Our host Gaby was great in communication and very accommodating. Anything we needed she looked after it right away.
Leonardo and Sylvia, our onsite hosts, were just wonderful. Sylvia is an excellent cook and besides the wonderful breakfasts, we were fortunate to arrange an evening meal with her. Anything you desire, she will cook it up for you.
We had many many interesting conversations with Leo, a very warm and pleasant individual. He made sure our needs were looked after and he would happily take us into town if needed. He would also arrange anything else we wanted such as taxi’s or take out food. Although, with the awesome location of Casa Arrullo just steps away from town, we found ourselves walking to the various restaurants near by and occasionally hoping on the local bus to get to other beautiful beaches in the area.
As much as we too would like to keep this place a secret, we must share the beauty of the place and our excellent hosts Gaby, Leo and Sylvia. We will definitely be back.
The ultimate location- a dreamy slice of Paradise!
As a family, we love staying in villas or homes so we may enjoy some privacy, cook when we want, swim in a private pool with accessibility to a beach always looking for the ultimate sunset view. This place has all of this and more!
The huge patio surrounding the pool and overlooking every part of the bay is bordered and complemented with beautiful flora including a grape tree for necessary shade by the pool. The beach is just a few steps away with many options for great food and entertainment. You can rent kayaks, wake boards, banana boat rides, jet skis. Parasailing and fishing are additional options. There is a boardwalk along the bay which will you take you right into town and the markets. Fresh fish, fresh fruit and authentic Mexican culture is a daily delightful experience. In the late evening after the beach activity concluded, breaking waves is the only glorious sound you will hear.
And now for the best part:Gaby, Leo and Silvia. When I made the reservations, I had many questions probably due to no reviews to date. Gaby was always quick to respond and very helpful on what to expect making reservations for dinner and arranged the airport taxi. (no need for a car, taxis are reasonable and so much is within walking distance. We did take a taxi for dinner on Christmas and to get to Ixtapa Island for snorkeling)
Leo and Silvia live on the grounds and turned out to be a lot more than caretakers. They are the kindest and most helpful people you might have the chance to meet. Leo accompanied us on most trips into town, helping us to shop the markets, showing us where to get the best fruit, vegs, fish and just about anything you can think of. He spoke with all the locals to make sure we were well taken care of wherever we went. He arranged taxis. If we needed ice, he would run and get it. Silvia and Leo arranged massages and a natural doctor to obtain natural medicine from. Every morning, fresh coffee awaited us on the top floor where no windows block your incredible view. Silvia always had an ample continental breakfast prepared with a giant fruit plate, freshly squeezed orange juice which I miss already and delicious pancakes or toast. She kept everything feeling clean and fresh and always with a smile. Leo spent a lot of time sharing the history of the place and their culture, and along the way became our friend. Would love to keep this place a secret but Gaby, Leo, and Silvia all want to share. Hope to be back soon!
