The al fresco living area is a great place to kick back with a cool drink and enjoy the amazing sunsets over Bahia Zihuatanejo. Relax to your favorite CD because the stereo sound system is wired throughout the house.

Each bedroom has king-sized beds (great mattresses!), 400+ Italian percale linens and air conditioning. The bedrooms feature plasma TV's with satellite TV, DVD, WIFI and writing desks. And the master bedroom has it's own terrace where you can watch the waves roll in.

You will love our a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. We have just about every kitchen gadget you need, including Wusthoff knives: coffee maker & grinder, orange juicer, blender, toaster, microwave, oven, stove-top, Cuisinart cooking pans, handmade Talavera pottery and Mexican glassware.

              Car: Not Necessary

              When we first came to Zihuatanejo, back in 1978, it was a sleepy fishing village, where you could spend all day at the beach lying under a palapa. You could take an occasional plunge in the gentle surf, sip a pina colada, dine on the freshest fish, and take a nighttime stroll under more stars than you could ever dream up. That was almost thirty years ago, and hardly anything has changed. From our condo, La Ropa beach is only a five minute stroll. You can swim, boogie board, get a massage in a tent right on the sand, dine at one of 16 beach front restaurants or hang out under a palapa with a good book. The authentic village of Zihuatanejo offers shopping, spas, yoga, dancing, dining, sunset cruises, an Artisan Market, deep sea fishing or the old world style Mercado Central. To the north and south are open water beaches with world class surfing and Ixtapa has two golf courses. Our condo is the perfect staging ground for a life in paradise.

              Other Activities: Boogie boarding, relaxing under a palapa

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Harriet Garfinkle is a former dancer, a painter and the owner and director of Woodside Pilates. Ron is Neuro-psychiatrist specializing in treatment of severe brain disorder and schizophrenia who has hidden talents as an artist. Harriet and Ron went to Zihuatanejo on their first date in 1978. Back then it was a sleepy fishing village, where you could lie on the beach all day under a palapa. You could take an occasional plunge in the gentle surf, sip a piña colada, dine on the freshest fish, and take a nighttime stroll under more stars than you could ever dream up. That was almost thirty years ago, and hardly anything has changed. It is waking up a little and has more comforts and conveniences, but the construction of Ixtapa twenty minutes away corralled all the high-rise hotels, trendy discos and deconstruction of natural splendor. Zihuatanejo has kept all of its old world charm and remains one of the most beautiful beaches and bays in the world. They have traveled a lot since then, but Zihuatanejo is the place they always go back to, and finally in 2006 they bought property there.

              Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
              Ron and Harriet have a strong belief in education and environmental action as a means to heal the world. With that in mind, for every guest that stays with us, we donate to the Children's Library a Barra de Potosí. The programs help change the world one child at a time. We donate to Friends of Niños Adelante as well. We also give to S.O.S. Bahia for the rescue and preservation of Zihuatanejo Bay, to raise awareness of the bay as a natural and tourist resource that we should preserve and enjoy in a sustainable manner.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The view. The art. The bay. The people. The food.
