Zihuatanejo condo description

Casa Del Arbol Cantando (“House of the Singing Tree”) is a beautiful 3-bedroom luxury condo on the peaceful Mexican Riviera, less than a 10-minute walk to Playa La Ropa, with a spectacular view of dreamy Zihuatanejo Bay from two terraces, both facing the bay and graced with tropical plants and outdoor seating.

Recently renovated by husband & wife designers, this spacious 3 bedroom apartment, with 3.5 baths was crafted by some of the finest local artisans, using rich local woods, handmade terra cotta tile & fine stonework. A brasilia tree dramatically centers the entry stairway, rising up two floors.

With almost 3,000 square feet, this luxury condo is perfect for 3 couples or a family. The fully-equipped kitchen, with gas stove, has a lovely view of the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Bottled purified water is provided.

Every room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning is available. Every bedroom has a king bed with 400-thread count linens and its own bathroom with rain showers & smooth pebble floors.

There is a lovely pool (large enough for laps) fed by a man-made waterfall, off-street parking & 24-hour security.


A truly magical spot in beautiful, peaceful Zihuatanejo.
This is the best time to secure your vacation for next year, while it's still available.

                      Location

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Zihuatanejo is a charming fishing village at the base of the foothills of the Sierra Madres, that has become a highly desired tourist destination in the Mexican Riviera. The pace is still leisurely, but there is plenty to do, if that is your desire. Golf, tennis, biking, sailing, sport fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, horseback riding are but a sampling of the activities, although most are always drawn back to the beach. Casa del Arbol Cantando at Punta Marina Condominiums is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to Playa La Ropa, our most beautiful beach, and just around the corner from the treasured Playa Las Gatas, where there is snorkeling and scuba diving available.

                      This year, our paradise has hosted the Zihua Sailfest, the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival, the Food & WIne Festival in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo as well as colorful local carnivals & other festivities.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Sherwin & Peg are both artists/designers from New York. Sherwin is a semi-retired art director & graphic designer who came to Zihuatanejo in 2001, after being coerced by a good friend. 'Let's go to Mexico,' he said. He stayed on La Ropa and moved over to Las Gatas and camped out with local legend Owen Lee. Week after week passed and the original return home date was a distant memory. The playwright and poet Anna Della Marina Rego even wrote a play about the experience, called 'The Man Who Failed to Fly,' which has been performed in San Miguel de Allende. The following year, his future wife Peg (aka Margarita), an interior designer and senior associate at a renowned architectural firm followed him down to make sure he came home, and she too fell in love with Zihua. (Who doesn't?) It is a magical place that resonates deep within the soul. They've met amazing folks here and continue to expand their circles. It's been a richly rewarding experience. And the weather!! That word Paradise pops into everyone's vernacular. They love the fact that it is NOT a high rise resort or a Spring Break destination.

                      Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
                      With gorgeous views of the Zihuatanejo Bay from the hill on the south end (their favorite) of Playa La Ropa, the casa is just a short walk down to the beach and restaurants, and a short cab ride to town ('El Centro') for 50 pesos (under $4 US). There is fantastic flora & fauna to be found, with hummingbirds, herons, chakalakas, geckos, iguanas and many many more exotic birds and beasts, not to mention lush tropical plants and flowers everywhere. Heaven!
