Property description

On Playa Madera Casa Leigh y Loros is a duplex.located at the midpoint of the bay, thus enjoying steady breezes. A 2 BR 2 Bath, has a/c in bedrooms, overhead fans, full kitchen. Daily maid is Miriam Bilboa Oliveros, her husband Ignacio Mendiola Zarate, a horseman and tour guide is your resource for any activity.
Walk down the flight of stairs around side of building. It is a two minute descent to the sand. Madera beach has four restaurants, kayack and other beach sports rentals, and the boardwalk to town takes you along little coves. This is one of three ways to get to town. I must take credit; this boardwalk or 'andador 'was the brainchild of myself back in days. along with petitioning all my neighbors to have the city come pave the street, which they promptly did.

When you arrive Ignacio ("Nacho) will be waiting for you. Have a shower, put on your shorts and he will accompany you for shopping for food and drink.

If you want to go riding or fishing he will arrange it for you. He is partner with another horsrman who owns a stable close to Playa Larga, the first beach south of Zihuatanejo Bay. This is a 24 km long beach for some reason divided into three names, Playa Larga, Playa Blanca and Barra de Potosi. After you ride through the coconut plantations and race along the beach there are several seafood restaurants in the sand.

Miriam is your maid who comes daily to clean. Please tell her what time -- or tell Ignacio, as she doesn't speak English. She will launder your clothes for the going rate of laundry by the kilo.

On the roof of this duplex is a roof garden, with a spectacular view. There is a BBQ, chaise lounges, table and chairs and a shower.

The kitchen is supplied with the necessary that I ran a restaurant, (Bad Bird Cafe) out of it.

Across the street is a convenience store that is well stocked with all kind of drink as well as the usual items. The owner of this store is Mori, whose father was a mayor and owner the what is now Hotel Las Brisas. FYI this Beach has its share of ex mayors' hotels including Bungalows Alec and Bungalows Sotelo.

Enjoy a lifetime collection of art *majority are local artists) other are well known Mexican artists. Master beachside Bedroom has king mattress, second bedroom has queen.

Extensive library.

I hope you will come stay at Casa Leigh y Loros. FYI" Loros" is parrots

About the owner: Retired health care professional. (RN, Certified Nurse Midwife, Licensed Psychotherapist) Founded the Zihuatanejo Connection vacation rentals in 1992. Opened Bad Bird Cyber Cafe, offering Starbucks; first cyber cafe on La Madera. Brief encounter with marketing homemade ice cream "Helados Pico de Pajaro" (Bad Bird Icre Creams) Created website for children" Regalo de Zihuatanejo", providing on line access to Mexico's best artists and photography. From 1995 to present worked with Semarnap (Mexican Fish and Wildlife)to identify endangered parrots, conures, and macaws that are not being adequately cared for.

Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
To this day I have never regretted choosing Club Madera #2. I listen to the euphoric sound of the waves, enjoy my views, and am only four blocks to town. I also have for sale what is the one of two beachfront lots available in Zihuatanejo.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Abput as close as you can get to the sand on Madera or La Ropa. Visual and acoustic privacy. . The property is labelled by the city Government as 'privileged , as all other properties on this block are hotels. Outstanding collection of art and books, and crafts from around Mexico. Dining room table and chairs won award at Acapulco Expo.
