Property description

Villa Zanzibar is a charming, private house for rent located on a jungle-clad hillside, steps above La Ropa Beach. Enjoy the views of La Ropa Beach, Zihuatanejo Bay and the twinkling lights of the village at night.

I think you will love our place. Villa Zanzibar is situated in a very quiet small neighborhood, on a side of a mountain surrounded by lush tropical trees and a profusion of nature. Everyone has been more than thrilled with the villa. It is designed as a modern tree house, with massive wood pillars, expansive palapa roof, smooth colored concrete surfaces and tile floors decorated with rock inlay. Villa Zanzibar is beautifully furnished with Equipale furniture and filled with hand crafted Mexican art. We are always adding new pieces to the collection. The dining room and living room faces the ocean and has incredible views of the Bay, Playa La Ropa, Zihuatanejo, Puerto Mio and the Pacific Ocean. This is an excellent location to get to know the local birds. The trees surrounding the house are filled with giant exotic jays, humming birds, Mot Mots, Cacao and many others. Wild parrots are often heard and seen flying by in the mornings.

Each bedroom has its own charm and all have comfy King size beds. The two bedrooms down stairs are air conditioned and share a separate W/C and beautiful snail shaped shower done in round stones. The third bedroom upstairs is lofted and has its own shower, W/C, sitting area and hammock. The bed is draped with a tropical Pavion. There is a safe deposit box to lock up your valuables.

The kitchen is at the heart of the house, with all modern conveniences to cook up fresh Red Snapper and Tuna from the market. The breakfast bar seats 4 persons. The 'Jewel' of the casa is Naty. She cleans and takes care of all household concerns. Naty will be happy to prepare salsa's to have with chips, fruit salads for breakfast and refreshing Mexican aguas! Her hours are Monday through Saturday 9 am to 1 pm. She is especially good with children and speaks English too!

As far as the distance to the beach. Out the front gate down 15 stair steps to the sidewalk (20 yards long) to the left and down 60 stair steps to a private driveway, approx. 50 yards to the beach. That is the south end of Playa La Ropa. The house has excellent views and yes you can hear the surf.

From the house to the beach if you drew a straight line it would be about 75 yards from the ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides nature, views and uniqueness you will love the peace and quiet. The villa is not by any main roads! So the sound of the surf can massage those exhausted thoughts into jello!
