Property description

'Simply Perfect' is how recent guests describe La Casa de Rosario. Centrally located on Madera beach, Rosario has just been fully renovated and updated, newly furnished and freshly decorated. The condo has a ground level entrance and an elevated, panoramic view of the beach, ocean and pool (one flight down from the unit). It has two bedrooms - king- and queen sized beds, respectively - each with an ocean view, and a spacious living / dining area that is entirely open to the ocean; 1100 square feet overall. In addition to its window opening on the bay, the second bedroom has double french doors that can be opened to the front part of the living area and the view of the bay beyond, giving the room added airiness (for the bedroom hammock) or expanding the living area. Originally designed in the classic Mexican style, the condo is entirely refreshed. The sea breeze and silent ceiling fans constantly freshen the living space which offers a hammock and lounge chairs, a comfortable banquette and wonderful day bed facing the water. Each bedroom is fully contained, private and comfortable with an air conditioner that is rarely needed, but always available.

The condominium has a 3 piece bathroom (with shower) full kitchen with microwave, four burner gas cook-top, convection / toaster oven plus an electric barbecue – fully equipped with small appliances and utensils for those who like to cook. It has a flat screen TV, wireless high-speed internet and a private telephone line. All local landline calls are included in the rental which also includes on-site security, maid service two days per week plus all bed linens, bath towels, utensils, dishware, cookware, cutlery and purified water.

Location and accessibility define the uniqueness of this property. A 15 minute walk to the south is La Ropa beach, and a 10 minute walk north along the seawall brings you to the town site with daily fish and produce markets, restaurant boardwalk, shops, cafes and bars. A full groceries / clothing / liquor and hardware store is a 25 minute walk or short cab ride away. The property is surrounded by a host of dining spots ranging from traditional Mexican to international cuisine. Half a block east is an open Mexican grill with a wonderful cooking school. A few steps south is a small grocery store, across the road from the Aura Del Mar hotel – once a lavish hacienda – with a lovely patio bar overlooking the bay and ocean beyond. To the left of the property, a gentle flight of stairs brings you to the beach where a drink or snack at La Palapa café will afford you shady lounge chairs for your day at the beach, and the Bistro Del Mar will offer you fine dining and excellent service in its charming open-air setting at the water’s edge. Water tours, massages, fishing trips and water craft / sports rentals are readily and comfortably available on the beach. If you would like more information or detail on the condo and Zihuajanero in general, we have a full, illustrated guest guide we're happy to send you. Just send us a request via cgdkelly@gmail.com

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We, Chris and Deb, live in Vancouver, B.C. where we’ve raised two children – now young adults – and several cats and dogs while working for over 30 years as educators / administrators / university instructors. Since retiring five years ago, wonderful new doors have been opened for us, not the least of which has been our discovery of Mexico and Zihuatanejo.

Why Zihuatanejo:
It was a bleak, wet January in 2013 when we decided to run away to somewhere warm and sunny. We’d never been to Mexico, though had wanted to, and close friends / travelling partners had just returned from Zihua with the most alluring pictures and stories, so, we chose this as our run-away destination. Booking 3 weeks late in the season meant we had to book 3 week-long stays, each of which offered its own perspective on the bay and its neighbourhoods; the south slope of La Ropa beach, the middle of Madera beach, then the north end of La Ropa. It was during our time in Bahia Suites on Madera beach that we became truly smitten with this unique place, its owners and tenants, its welcoming Mexican neighbourhood and its beautiful location. Though never intending to own property outside of Canada, after months of research and conversations with other owners of Mexican properties, we returned to Bahia Suites and lived for the month of November in the condo we subsequently purchased in January 2014.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A spectacular location with easy access to everything of interest or need, comfort, charm, a welcoming, easy-going community, relaxed and friendly fellow travellers, and wonderful food.
