Zihuatanejo condo description

Casa Almendro is located in the lushly landscaped gated and very secure complex of La Ceiba Suites in the Playa Madera district. La Ceiba Suites complex is conveniently and centrally located close to the town center of Zihuatanejo so no car is necessary as you are just steps away from all amenities. Despite being so close to town it is an amazingly private and quiet location. Within short walking distance from the condo there are too numerous to count delicious restaurants serving a broad range of tastes and prices, shopping and entertainment. If needed, taxis and buses are available to you just outside of La Ceiba Suites doors for just a few pesos. Playa Madera beach is an easy short 0.2 mile 5 minute walk from the condo and Playa La Ropa is an approximate 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus/taxi ride.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      It is an easy 0.2 mile walk from the condo to La Madera Beach where you will find a nice sandy beach you can sun bathe, swim, enjoy a beautiful sunset, have a drink, snack, or enjoy a traditional Mexican meal in one of the cafes and bistros located on the beach stretch. From La Madera beach, you can walk along the beach walkway to town to enjoy the numerous restaurants, shopping and entertainment. There is a wide choice of dining in every direction from the condo that cover a broad range of tastes and prices. If you want to get out a bit further, taxis and local buses are readily available outside of the La Ceiba Suites entrance for a very reasonable fee. Find the 'Zihuatanejo Artisans' Market' on Calle 5 de Mayo in downtown Zihuatanejo just one block from the waterfront and beginning across from the church. The market is made up of multiple small stalls for a shoppers delight. For a real taste of old Mexico, take a short walk to visit the open air 'Mercado' off of Benito Juarez. It has a vibrant Mexican feel with a large selection of little shops, restaurants and stalls selling fresh local produce, meats and goods. There are activities galore and numerous beaches to visit locally such as Playa Principal, Playa La Madera, Playa La Ropa and one of our favorites is Playa Las Gatas which can be reached by water taxi from the main pier. However, if you get the itch to get out a bit further for the day there are several small beach communities that are fun to travel to by bus or taxi such as Playa El Palmar in Ixtapa, Isla Ixtapa, Playa Troncones, Playa Larga, Playa Blanca and Barra de Potosi. All of these beach communities have numerous beachfront restaurants with activities available to entertain anyone. If relaxation is your goal, grab a hammock, a good book or a siesta. Zihuatanejo has the old-fashioned charm of traditional Mexican culture. It is a town that sprang up from a handful of families who were mostly fishermen. Fishing continues to be a way of life for a large number of the local families and the the area is a popular sport fishing destination. Zihuatanejo's main attraction is its well-protected bay where traveling boaters often spend the winter months moored in its peaceful bay. The bay offers various beaches for relaxation, recreation, dining, or simply enjoying the abundantly beautiful scenery and laid-back local lifestyle. Zihuatanejo is the ideal vacation destination away from high rise hotels, fast food outlets and big box stores. The main part of downtown Zihuatanejo referred to as 'El Centro' is still rather old-fashioned with narrow streets made of paving-stones and where most people still walk to get around. The Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International Airport is located about 15 minutes from town by car or taxi. It is possible to find direct flights from Canada and the U.S. especially during the peak vacation season between December and April. Zihuatanejo provides a warm and sunny climate year round with a short rainy season between July and October. Most visitors come to the area between mid November and late April but the low season also provides beautiful sunny weather with rains typically in the evenings keeping the areas vegetation lush.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About: We are a married couple living in Moscow, Idaho for many years. We both are still working full time but have dreams of retirement in Zihuatanejo for the winter months. We have traveled to Zihuatanejo for the last several years and have completely fallen in love with the area and the people. An opportunity came up to purchase the property and we couldn't turn it down. We hope you will come and enjoy Zihuatanejo and Casa Almendro as much as we have. Don & Shelley Frei

                      Why Zihuatanejo:
                      We chose to buy in the Zihuatanejo area as we found the relaxing Mexican beachfront environment perfect for what we were looking for. The Playa Madera district is conveniently located close to town, beaches and restaurants with no car needed as everything is within walking distance. It is only a 10-minute stroll along the picturesque waterfront walkway and its many delightful local restaurants to beautiful old-fashioned downtown Zihuatanejo with its open-air market, distinctive shops and authentic Mexican night life. There are many fun activities available including first-class dining and shopping, sport fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, sailing, surfing, and a variety of guided tours. Trendy La Ropa Beach is only a 15-minute walk away, and Ixtapa with its El Palmar Beach, golf courses, shopping centers, and marina is only a 15-minute ride away. We feel completely safe and have never felt a moment of uncertainty in this area. The locals are very friendly, loving & hard working people.
