Property description

You have arrived! Located only 15 minutes from the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Airport, our deluxe condo is situated high above the white-sand La Ropa Beach on the Bay of Zihuatanejo (land of women). Casa de Serenidad, our 1300 sq. ft. casa has two master bedrooms with private baths, a covered terrace, and views of the Pacific Ocean from all rooms in the house.

Located just a short walk to the beach and a quick and cheap taxi ride, bus, or walk to town, we are the authentically designed gated community La Casa Que Ve al Mar (the house that looks out to the sea). A premier 39 unit resort, created by renowned architect Enrique Zozoya who is known for the exclusive La Casa Que Canta,we are a non-commercial vacation destination, combining comfort, privacy and fantastic amenities!

Grandly sitting high on the hillside, the gently blowing ocean breezes and views of the blue Pacific will soothe your soul. Our Casa de Serenidad is a contemporary condominium featuring modern amenities located on the 2nd floor with an elevator and ramp for easy access. Beautifully designed, the condo is artfully decorated with native Mexican art & pottery, hand-loomed fabrics, handcrafted cabinetry and tropical beach rattan furnishings. The sand blasted marble floors with intricate inlaid stone designs, walls textured with authentic “grass” and hand-polished plaster walls creates the serene setting for your next vacation. We hope you’ll enjoy our favorite place in the entire condo where the hammock hangs below the Mexican tile roofed terrace, a perfect spot for siestas and sunset cocktails.

Prepared with your needs in mind, everything has been supplied for your comfort including premium linens, comfortable queen-size mattresses, hair dryers, quiet, cool air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen (pots/pans/blender/juicer/baking dishes - we have it all! )with high back Mexican style bar seating or dining al fresco on the view terrace.

Enjoy all of the comforts of home, with none of the stress. Use our in-house washer/dryer, maid service two times each week (or more as you wish), and meal preparation upon request. Satellite TV on the 37” flat screen offers a good selection of English speaking channels. We have a good supply of DVD’s, and don’t forget your iPod for the docking station. The condo has free Wi-Fi internet access and purified water.

Casa Que Ve al Mar’s two infinity swimming pools come alive for glistening sunsets, when friendly guests share cocktails as they watch the sun drop over the Pacific Ocean. This small, classy resort has it all…lush tropical landscaping, on-site parking, 24/7 gated security and on-site English/Spanish speaking management. We are ideally located next to the charming fishing village of Zihuatanejo, just 15 minutes from the upscale vacation destination of Ixtapa.

A perfect day includes a leisurely stroll along fisherman’s walk to El Centro where you can mix with tourists and locals alike. Walk 10 minutes for a beachside massage, to rent a kayak, parasail or to play in the sand and surf at La Ropa Beach. For an evening out, stroll to one of the 5 star dining establishments or locally owned beach spots, or if you prefer dining in, stock your kitchen and bar from the colorful Mercado (open-air market) or from one of the two modern super markets nearby. Taxi service is readily available with bargain price door-to door service. The local bus stops just steps away and is a fast, cheap and a flavorful way to get around!

The condo provides ample room for four people. Rates vary according to season. See the rate chart below and calendar for available times. Zihuatanejo is very special to us and our goal is to do everything possible to make Zihua a very special place in your heart, too. We love Zihuatanejo and hope that you will, too!

For excellent priced All-Inclusive Resort Package located at the Park Royal in Ixtapa, Cuernavaca, or condo style accomodations in Puerto Vallarta please call us or email.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Hi! We're Paul & Connie Sorensen. We love Zihuatanejo and spend two months during the winter months. We have been then nearly every month of the year...and love it anytime!!! Something happens to you when you're there. The minute you step off the plane and feel the warm air, see the many smiling faces and you say to yourself, 'I'm home.' That is how it is for us.

Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
We completed our purchase in 2006 when it was brick and mortar. Paul, a contractor on Vashon Island, WA, supervised a local contractor to build our dreams in mid 2008. Together we designed the condo interior, shopped in Patzcuarro, Morelia and Zihua for furnishings and by December 2008 we loaded our Mexico car and took a road trip to our new vacation home! It was a great trip and we thoroughly enjoyed creating our Zihua home. We first began visiting Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo in the early 2000's and on our first trip bought a time share. As the years went by, we realized that Zihutanejo felt like home. We have never regretted our decision to purchase a vacation property and each year we feel more and more a part of the community.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo community is a wonderful group of folks from various backgrounds and the Zihua community is friendly, safe and full of local Mexican culture. We socialize with many of the other owners and renters whom we meet poolside. Chatting poolside, I hear a lot of reasons why guests come back year after year...mostly, they love the people that they meet at the pool. They love how well maintained and beautiful the complex is and they feel safe and well cared for by our staff. The other popular poolside conversation is "What's for dinner?". You will get the scoop about where to get good food! Sundays at Playa Larga is a family affair among the Mexicans and we enjoy being part of that. Weekend nights are fun at the Basketball court in downtown Zihua by the water. There's always a ton of locals out enjoying the evening. La Ropa Beach is always a special treat when we camp out for the day at La Perla. There chairs are the best! I enjoy yoga or a massage at Pati's on La Ropa Beach. We hope you will come to love Zihuatanejo as we do.
