About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Our cute new bungalow has a full ocean view and is only steps away from a gorgeous 10 mile sandy beach. Full kitchen, bedroom (king or twins), bath, living room with WiFi and Canadian/US TV, double patios with Weber BBQ. A peaceful environment in a quiet mixed home community. Charming Barra de Potosi is only 1.8 miles down the beach with enramadas serving fresh fish and local Mexican food. Several restaurants are within walking distance.

About Zoe & Gary Watson

We retired from IBM after 30 years living in the Far East, Middle East and the USA. our family enjoys the life of being an expat so we retired to Mexico 13 years ago. We have a wonderful small home on the beach with great weather and community. We have a son and daughter and 3 grand kids who love to come and spend time here as often as they can.

Zoe & Gary Watson purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Zoe & Gary Watson chose Barra de Potosí

The people living here call this "the last best beach". You can fish, boogie board, swim, snorkel or lay out and tan. Bring your Kindle and get caught up on reading. The community consists of individual homes built over the past 20 years with small private business interspersed. It is not your usual condo, gated community commercial area. We built WaCasita for our family and renters to enjoy this wonderful place. Maybe it will be your calling to return and enjoy it again.

What makes this bungalow unique

If you are into night life, partying, etc. this is not for you. If you enjoy a beautiful, tropical, peaceful getaway to regenerate your mind and soul, Playa Blanca is the place to be. Summer is our personal favorite season! Mother nature at her best. November thru April is our HI SEASON. The international airport is only15 minutes away. Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa are just 20 minutes for tourist attractions, major shopping and fine dining.

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

The property is gorgeous and meticulously maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This property is off the beaten path which is exactly what we were looking for during our vacation. Services are readily available a short distance away but otherwise you are left to relax under a fan, or walk the beach to your heart's content without a crowd. The casita is new and very clean with all the amenities to make your stay an easy one..

The hosts, Gary and Zoe, could not have been more accommodating and were very welcoming and helpful...Our sincere thanks to you both for allowing us to share your wonderful property!
