Zihuatanejo condo description

Well by now you have likely read many other descriptions of how beautiful and friendly Zihuatanejo is, and how close the lovely La Ropa beach is to all the vacation rentals there.

You have also likely read that La Ropa beach is very good for swimming, so on any given day you will likely see a couple hundred folks in the water having fun. Su Escapada has all this just like the more expensive places, but there is something here that you will not likely find at other rentals in the La Ropa area…peace and quiet and PRIVACY.

And here’s why- at Punta Penasco (the building name) there are ONLY four units in the whole building (just four!). What you will be renting are the TWO top floors with the TWO top ocean-view decks. Unlike larger condo developments, you do not have people coming and going day and night...no hotel atmosphere here.
Su Escapada is QUIET and PRIVATE.

The upper deck is off the bedroom and the next one down is off the living room. The other three units here are occupied by other gringos who may or may not be here when you are.

The building is usually totally yours to enjoy during the day, and mostly at night as well. You might find it nice to not have others around when you wish for a private swim in the pool as the pool is rarely used.

These two decks, one off your upstairs bedroom and the one off the living room (both with 100% beach/ocean views) are totally private and not seen from other units
(wink-wink).
Su Escapada, in the four unit Punta Penasco complex, has something else that you will long remember…it is at just the right height above the beach that allows only the pounding sounds of the small surf to be heard day and night - NOT A PEEP of the jet skis and parasail powerboats can ever be heard unless you are down near the beach itself.

And here’s another nice feature of Su Escapada- you have a 99% guarantee that you will have a nice sea breeze coming in from the ocean year around. What this means for you is that the air conditioning is rarely needed.....or even the many ceiling fans for that matter.

Just keep the huge glass doors on both the upper and lower decks open and the back windows open and the cooling effect is usually perfect as it flows through the house to keep you cool and free of A/C noise.

Of course the A/C is always there should you wish it. Even the many fans will not be needed as a rule thanks to this gentle breeze. All this adds to the peace and quiet of your vacation that you will long remember.

And if you are the type that enjoys keeping in touch while you are on vacation, Su Escapada offers high-speed DSL wireless internet. In fact, you will be able to even use the wireless signal poolside if you wish. And you will find all the news you can stand and hundreds of commercial-free music stations with the WiFi internet radio on the living room level.

Taxis are cheap in Zihua IF you agree on the price before you get into the cab. With a one minute walk down to the main (only) road you can snag one of the many taxis going by day or night. Su Escapada phone works for local taxi and pizza calls and incoming calls from home. The city bus for downtown stops nearby as well.

But if you want to skip a taxi, just another four minute walk from there will get you to the many waterfront restaurants. One of which is Paty’s- known for the best shrimp cocktail and tortilla soup in all of Zihua.

Zihuatanejo, besides being a safe clean friendly town, it has one of the most user-friendly airports you will ever use. And La Ropa beach is just 20 minutes away.

At this point it’s necessary to bring up a few things you should know about the Su Escapada so you will be well informed as to what is being offered here. First, be aware that there are a fair number of stairs from the parking lot up to the pool area, and then there are another three level of stairs to the front door.
If you have problems with stairs do not consider staying at Su Escapada. Next- This well cared for condo has never known the smell of a cigarette- absolutely no smoking inside or on the decks- in fact this is a no smoking building in total. Please, if you are a smoker do not rent here. You will loose your security deposit if you smoke here.

Finally, please no pets of any kind.

Sleeping arrangements- the upstairs bedroom has one huge bed (8’ wide x 6.5’ long) and there is one full bathroom on this level. The two sofas downstairs serve as twin beds and can sleep two adults or children (over 13 only please because of the drop from both decks is considerable).

There is a full bathroom on this level as well. The kitchen is well equipped to dine four people. To keep rates low, maid daily service is not included with stays under 10 nights. Should you wish daily maid service, please let me know so I can arange the level of service you wish to have. Maid service is $20 USD/day used.

Remember- you have a clothes washer and dryer right in Su Escapada so personal items and sheets are done easily by you if you wish.

RATES: There is a 10% discount for stays 10 days or more. Minimum stay is five nights, and seven over Christmas/New Years. Weekly rates shown are based on five nights. For stays of 30 days or more, please contact owner for special rates. There is a $250 fully refundable security deposit requested with final payment 30 days prior to arrival. Lock in your dates with a 50% deposit. Cancellation policy- 100% credit for future stay up to 90 days prior to arrival/no credit or refund after 90 days prior to arrival.

CONTACT INFORMATION: Email is the best contact method for questions and reservations. And we can do a Skype call should you wish. Once here you can use a local line (provided) to call me. We are fulltime Zihuatanejo residents living just a 5 minute away should you need anything.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My wife Barbara and I live in Zihuatanejo full time. We were first attracted to live here because of the safe and economical living conditions, and that is still what keeps us here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
                  We bought in Zihuatanejo because it is a friendly easy area to get around. It is clean and safe with good medical care available.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  One of the great delights of Zihuatanejo is the 'mercado publico', the public market in the Centro...downtown. The fruits and vegatables come in from the local farmers...really, just a BIG farmers market. And the fish market there has everything and soooo fresh. And because we are just a four unit building, the atmosphere is quiet, private and friendly. AND have you ever seen a better view?
