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.
