Zihuatanejo condo description

El Nido Magico is one of only four unique Punta Peñasco condominiums perched over Playa LaRopa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. There is so much to say about this newly remodeled property that it is difficult to know where to begin.

The view is spectacular! Perched 300 feet above the bay, El Nido Magico is one of the highest properties on La Ropa beach. From the terrace you will have a one hundred and eighty degree view from which you will see both breathtakingly beautiful sunrises and magnificent sunsets. Views are not just from the terrace but can be seen and are reflected from every room of the condo.

There is a modern fully equipped U.S. Style kitchen with breakfast nook. The bedroom is large with tons of closet space, dressing table and king size bed on a raised pedestal for even better views of the bay and ocean. The bathroom includes a handcrafted Talavera tile soaker tub and vanity.

There are two atriums. The garden atrium behind the bedroom has a hammock and is the perfect place for a siesta or good book. The other is behind the kitchen and is furnished with washer, dryer and clothes line for your wet suits. The atriums are both open and secure, allowing daytime breezes from the ocean and nighttime breezes from the mountains. There are ceiling fans in every room and a/c in the bedroom, but it very unlikely that you will ever need it.

Punta Peñasco’s four condos share a beautifully refurbished swimming pool and small garden, both very private and directly below our unit (#1). Other amenities include internet, printer, smart TV, and weekly cleaning. This is our home when we are in Zihuatanejo, so you will find everything you need to make your stay convenient, comfortable and carefree.

Your local host Eloisa will meet you when you arrive at El Nido Magico. She speaks perfect English and will be available to answer your immediate questions and help you in case of emergency. There is a comprehensive rental guide provided inside the condo for other details such as restaurant and shopping suggestions. In addition to Eloisa and Guillermo the maintenance man/gardner, we are always just an email or phone call away.

The walk up from the parking area is 80 steps and from the street below even more, so please keep this in mind when making your rental decision. If you can’t or don’t like climbing stairs, El Nido Magico is not for you. Sorry, but no children please.

                  Zihuatanejo has so much to offer. Beautiful beaches and lagoons, surfing, snorkeling and all related beach activity. Wonderful seafood available in many local restaurants and a terrific town square right on the Playa Principal where there is often food and entertainment. Lovely small villages within a half hour drive include Troncones, La Saladita, and Barra de Potosi,all of which have great surfing. Our local sunset cruise catamaran Picante shows you Zihuatanejo from the water at a magical time of day.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We met in Zihuatanejo where Delia was living in 1978, when Zihuatanejo was a sleepy fishing village of 6,000 people. We knew when we left that we would one-day return happily together. And so it was. While living in New Orleans which we love, Zihuatanejo became our home away from home ten years ago, and EL Nido Magico our special “nest” two years ago. Since purchasing, we have been remodeling and making it home. Now it is time for us to visit other parts of the world again.

                  Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
                  We were very happy where we were living in Zihuatanejo and did not think that we would ever move -- until we took a friend's advice and walked up the 80 steps to El Nido Magico. From that moment on there was no going back. It was simply the most inspiringl view we had ever seen no matter the price and we knew that we could make this beautiful place our own.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Friends staying at one of the four Punta Peñasco units shared last night that the view is so commanding and they are so happy here that it is hard to make themselves leave the hill for the enjoyments of the beaches, bars and restaurants. We agree.The views of the small fishing boats running out to sea in the morning and back in the evening, the ever-changing moods of the bay and skies as well as the ships in the distant Pacific shipping lanes never cease to fascinate. Even closer to home the birds of the day and night fly by just a few feet away, above the swaying palms, while the resident iguana suns himself on the brick wall. And then there is the house…. EVERY spot has a view or reflection. You look up and there is a reflection of the houses on the hills, the ocean and the bay – all wrapped in a gentle breeze and perfect temperature.
