About Kathleen

We live in Payson, Az and love the outdoors and fishing.

Kathleen purchased this villa in 2006

Why Kathleen chose Zihuatanejo

We were staying at club Intrawest and saw new construction going on just behind the Club and had to go see. We put our Hard Hats on and climed up the had made ladders and when we reached the Terrrace are jaws dropped at the incredible views we knew we had to have this. We enjoy spending Winter time In Zihuatanejo and Fishing in the summer.

What makes this villa unique

Our staff is very friendly and accomodating. Maria our maid has been with us since 2006 and is very honest and speaks some English. Her cleaning in impeccable and she loves to bring guests home cooked food.

The condo is fully equipped including a separate laundry room, bottled water, beach towels and a fully stocked kitchen.

The terrace is large with panoramic views and is totally private. Enjoy cooking on our built it gas grill with some fresh fish from the market. Our manager Norma is there during the day to assist with special needs and our security is 24/7, we also have perimeter security cameras for extra peace of mind. The only bad side is that once you arrive you just never want to leave.

My family just returned from eight nights at this wonderful condo overlooking La Playa Ropa. The views of the bay and downtown Zihua are truely fantastic. The newer condo is nicely furnished. Kitchen, laundry facilities, and comfortable surroundings, are what we desire, and this was perfect.

Everyone in the condo complex is very helpful and the place is beautifully maintained.

Awesome Rental!

  • 5 of 5

''This condo is absolutely beautiful overlooking the ocean, Its the most spectacular view, right off the balcony ! Close to all amenities and an easy walk down to the beach!

Otherwise, cab right are accessible from anywhere and very reasonable.

We we're always used to going to CABO, but at last... Zhiuatanejo, is now new favorite!

The people everywhere are really nice and hospitable!

I definitely give Kathleen and Bob's place a 5 star!! Will be going back! The beaches are beautiful, the town is clean, Ixtapas a short ride away! Well rounded nice vacation..

Thanks agiain!

Preciosa and Zihua are both true gems!

  • 5 of 5

Our time (2 weeks) in Zihua was fabulous. Owners are a delight, along with everyone involved with Preciosa. 24/7 Security, maintenance, housekeeping and other owners really made our stay a dream. About the condo: when we arrived it was immaculate, all appointments are so lovely, amenities offered left us needing for nothing, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, outdoor living was incredible (from private patio w/barbeque to the shared infinity pool area), glass elevator (what a view) provided ease to the 3rd floor especially when carrying luggage or supplies, kitchen was fully equipped and we can't forget the million dollar view from your private patio.

The playa: La Ropa is a beautiful beach directly below Preciosa, it is a bit of an elevation change from the condo to the beach but a great way to get your daily exercise down and up the hill, restaurants galore are right on the beach and great activities available (Snorkeling, Para-sailing, jet skis, water taxis, floatables etc.)

Everything is within walking distance, also, taxis and bus services are readily available if you need. We enjoyed many restaurants.......never dissapointed!

We visited Islas Ixtapa, Las Gatas beach, Barre dePotisi and did a sunset cruise with Picante Tours. Everything was incredible. We are definitely going to return to Zihua and would love to stay again at Preciosa at the bay.

An unforgettable experience.

Fabulous trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 2 glorious weeks over Christmas at your lovely condo. It was immaculately clean (Mary is a super cleaner), well maintained and felt like home. Early each morning I would sit on the terrace with my coffee and watch the fishermen going out in their pangas and returning later to sell their fish at the marina. We went on a charter fishing boat one day and caught a 70 pound sailfish and 2 Dorados approx 30 pounds each. We kept one Dorado filet and gave the rest to the fishing guides. We took the filet to Paty's Marimar on LaRopa Beach. They prepared it for the 5 of us that evening. appetizers, salads and Dorado prepared 4 ways with fabulous sauces. Paty's also has delicious (and potent) 2 for 1 margaritas at happy hour. We toured beaches from Troncones to Barra de Potosi, fished, snorkeled at Manzanillo beach, walked to Los Gatos beach several times, walked into town, shopped for Artisanas and swam at LaRopa beach and the condo pool every day. Every restaurant we tried was great (except for one mediocre and over priced restaurant in Ixtapa). We loved Paty's Avocado with Shrimp Salad, LaGaviota's Fish Tacos, Il Mare, Bandito's on a football night, Marina Cafe for Breakfast, and several others. Preciosa is in a perfect location high above LaRopa yet an easy walk to the beach or into town or to the many restaurants close by. At night you have fabulous views of the sunsets, the water and all the fishing boat activity, and the lights of town at night. It's also quiet for sleeping. The staff, Norma, Roghelio, Mary and the security guards were always happy, friendly and quick to help with anything. Lovely place. I wanted to buy a unit and stay there.

Totally Impressed

  • 5 of 5

It is indeed a pleasure to write a review to thank you folks for permitting us to use your Unit 302. From the moment we opened the door we knew were were in paradise and were overwhelmed by how beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean it was. Your housekeeper, Maria, is such a nice lady and keeps the unit immaculate. On one cleaning day she was on a step ladder dusting off the many indoor and outdoor fans. In all our years of renting on vrbo I have never seen such perfection. I contemplated kidnapping Maria but instead left her a nice tip for all her hard work. The spacious kitchen is equipped with everything you need and thanks to the many guests who leave spices and other condiments as did we. The unit has wonderful cross ventilation when all the doors and windows are open and having a fan in every bedroom, two in the large living room and two on the massive terrace allows minimum use of the A/C. The terrace furniture is abundant and well suited to the surroundings. Having a built-in washer/dryer made my wife cringe but will come in handy for some people. Absolutely everything is included which is not the case in many vrbo rentals. Knowing that the property manager, Norma, is around on weekdays made us feel comfortable as she can assist you if you have any language barriers or concerns. The 24 hour security is great and the pleasant security guards are always available to summons a taxi for you and they arrive in just minutes. The website pictures of the views from the terrace do not exaggerate the beauty of the bay. It is obvious Kathleen and Bob have put a lot of thought into the design and decorating of their home and this made our stay that much more enjoyable. The location of the infinity pool is well planned as it separates the one bank of units from the other and allows for total privacy when on the terrace. We will definitely return to this condo and we thank Kathleen for her promptness in communicating with us both before, during, and after our 10 day stay. We tried 10 cafe's for lunches and dinners and would recommend our two favourites: Banditto's (ask to speak to Carlos the host and he will give you lots of advice in his perfect English) and Bistro del Mare (just at the sharp downhill turn by Hotel Irma, make sure the taxi driver goes that way as it is beach access only). Thanks again for all your hospitality Kathleen and Bob. We look forward to returning soon. Gordon & Margaret, Calgary, Alberta. (April 9 to 19, 2011

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two teenagers stayed here for a week in March. We loved waking up to the beautiful view of the bay, boats, birds and hills. The location of this condo is exceptional. Although it is tough to tear yourself away from the deck, the walk to the best beach in Zihua is short and charming. All the amenities are in the condo, including washer and dryer, and everything is top quality. Kathleen answered my emails immediately and was very helpful, even letting us have a late check out for a late flight. Wonderful, friendly staff couldn't have been more helpful. You will like this place! Only thing missing was games-bring some if you like to play. Kathleen told me to and I forgot.
