About the property

Spacious 2 bedrooms, 2 bath located on the beach & walking distance to Centro

We have a dotcom blog with more details on our casa as well as helpful information on the area. It's ZihuaTravels. Please take a look before booking.

Casa de Ali is part of a new 2 building, 13-unit condo development on Playa La Madera in Zihuatanejo. Our unit is the closest condo to the beach, located one floor above the gym, and 2 floors below the infinity pool. We are walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bars, as well as activities like snorkeling, fishing, parasailing and jet skiing. Centro Zihuatanejo is a 0.50mi walk along the beach and malecón. Playa La Madera is located just steps from our unit, and Playa La Ropa, one of the nicest beaches in all of Mexico, is only 0.75mi away. The complex has private entrances from the road and to the beach, as well as 24 hour security. Zihuatanejo is safe to walk day or night.

To reach our casa you will have to walk down 32-44 stairs. It is located in a large private foyer shared with one other unit that is lived in full-time. Upon entering the casa, the guest bedroom is on the right, with the main living space in front of you. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and futon, and a private bathroom. The washing machine is located outside the guest bathroom. The main living space, including the kitchen and bar, all have views of Zihuatanejo Bay, Playa La Madera, Playa Municipal, and the Pier. There is good WiFi throughout the condo. In addition, most bars and restaurants in Zihua offer free WiFi. The master bedroom has a king bed, 40" flat screen HD smart cable TV, and a private bathroom. Both bathrooms have large walk-in showers. Both bedrooms have sliding doors that offer a view of Zihuatanejo Bay. The main living space is open air allowing for the ocean breeze and sounds to flow through the condo. But each bedroom includes air conditioning units. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, as well as dishes and silverware.

This is the perfect location and value for walking to Playa La Ropa, Playa La Madera, and Centro (lots of shopping and restaurants). Massages on the beach for 200 pesos, beers for 20 pesos, and Happy Hour margaritas for 30 pesos. Life is great in Zihua!

Why Matthew Martin chose Playa La Ropa

We have been visiting Zihuatanejo since 2012. We wanted a location that was on the beach, had a nice pool and amenities, and was walking distance to bars, restaurants, shopping, and activities. This was the perfect location. And it was a great opportunity to try our hand at foreign property ownership.

What makes this condo unique

We are here in Zihua now to answer any questions you have of the area. The view of Zihuatanejo Bay is unbelievable. Whether it's in the morning watching the small fishing boats come in as joggers run along the beach and malecon, or in the evenings when the homes that surround the bay light up as we take a swim in the pool, we never get tired of the view.

Brand New and Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is in a new building. It has such a spacious feel to it with high ceilings and an open living plan. Bedrooms are very private and both have doors that pull closed and A/C although we never used it or closed the doors. You feel so close to the outside with the waves rolling in all night, but never too loud. Matt & Ali, your hosts, are very friendly and hard working. They have thought of everything! Small but nicely equipped kitchen which we used only for breakfast as Calle Adelita (5 minute walk) has so many great restaurants as does the rest of Zihua. We usually stay on Playa La Ropa and loved staying on Playa Madera this time. This condo is even more beautiful and perfect than the photos let on. The infinity pool is REALLY nice and water temperature perfect. Honestly this was one of the best vacation getaways we have ever had. We have traveled to Zihua many times and for many years and this accommodation stands out. Go!

This is a beautiful property, (brand new and still under construction on the second building) we enjoyed out stay at this open air, quiet and clean property. The owners are very considerate and have pride in this vacation property, they are available for any questions or concerns and respond quickly. There is every and any thing you might need to stay here with out worries. There is nothing like a sunset or sunrise at this casa, close to everything you might want to enjoy, we had some great adventures!

We absolutely loved staying here! Outstanding view of the beach. Everything we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. We loved the open air and spaciousness of this condo, always having a view of the ocean/beach, not to mention the sounds of the waves crashing throughout the day/evening. The bed was super comfy along with the a.c. running while we slept through the night. We walked almost everywhere we went, lots to see, and plenty of places to eat. We are certain you will enjoy your stay as well, we highly recommend it!

Beautiful property with amazing view and so convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Four adults shared this two bedroom, two bath casa and loved it! We stayed for a bit over two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view overlooking the bay was spectacular and enjoyed by all. It is large enough to accommodate up to six people. We were able to prepare meals in the well appointed kitchen or just go down on the beach (or in the hood) where there are tons of restaurants. Very convenient location. There are stairs but very manageable. We would highly recommend this property. The pool, which is up two flights, is amazing. Ali and Matt, the owners, could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Prettier than even the pictures made out!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot to be in Zihua if we took days to do house calls. The location couldn't be more perfect either, with a back door to the beach and town center within minutes. Or, out the front door to a taxi stand, and $2 bucks to any dinner reservation in town. We loved our stay in this super clean, well appointed apartment with everything we could want or need. Simply put, it was perfect for us. John & Ginger, VA, USA
