About Matthew Martin
Ali: From the Seattle area. Went to Washington State. Online English Teacher. Matt: From Tennessee. Die Hard Volunteers Fan. Moved to Seattle in 2004. We travel as much as possible, and found the Mexican people, especially in Zihuatanejo, to be warm and friendly. We spend half the year in Zihua.
Matthew Martin purchased this Condo in 2017
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, so when this property began construction in 2016 we were one of the first people to jump on board.
What makes this Condo unique
We are here in Zihua during the prime season to answer any questions you have about 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.

Gorgeous Bay View
Exceeding our expectations, Matt and Ali’s Casa Kau Kan suite was located at one end of the beach with a sweeping view of Playa La Madera, Playa Municipal, the fishing boats, the dock and the hills beyond. We spent hours watching the waves, the birds, the people and life in the bay from the open air living space as well as from the pool above. We almost always had the infinity pool to ourselves ( in May) to cool down, sit in the sun poolside, or read in the shade. We had planned to do some tours but there was so much to do and see in the immediate area that we ended up just walking and exploring Centro Zihuatenejo and the local beaches of Playa La Madera, Playa La Ropa and Playa Las Gatas for our 2 week stay. We would sometimes take a water taxi back from Las Gatas to Centro. There are so many great restaurants in Centro that we mainly ate out and would take the short walk along the Malecon (seawall) into town, which is well lit and safe at night. The suite is really well appointed with air conditioning in both bedrooms, showers in both bathrooms, a complete kitchen and a comfortable couch area for the 4 of us to play cards or just lounge. For us with our 2 young adult kids, this was the perfect space and location. Both Matt and Leonel the caretaker were readily available for any questions. We will back for more sun, great food and snorkelling.
Thanks so much,

Best place to chill
Well situated condo close to beach and centro. Very clean and private. The view is priceless. The trees around the unit are where birds perch. So “zen”..
Thank you for staying! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again at Casa de Ali. We're booked to return Sept 10 on a one-way ticket! :)
Spectacular view, great location
Our visit to Mathew’s property could not have been better. The building staff (Hugo) was a big help and always available. A bonus is that Mathew also has a local caretaker (Lionel) was available to us 24/7 and introduced us around town and made sure we knew where all the locals shop and eat. We loved our stay and will definitely return.
Thank you so much for staying at our place. We're glad you enjoyed Zihua and had a great holiday. The local spots are the best places to eat. We're missing our breakfast tortas and crepes!

Love This Place!
My husband & I stayed at Casa di Ali for three weeks during January/February 2019 and had an amazing trip. The condo was beautiful and perfect for us. The view is spectacular both day and night. Matt & Ali were so accommodating and made our stay effortless. The pool is beautiful and the staff at Kau Kan extremely helpful. The kitchen is very well stocked but we didn't use it much only because the eats and drinks in Zihua are fabulous. We loved to make the easy walk into town for dinner and take a quick taxi ride back to soak in the night view. Another great trip to Zihua....we will be back!!
Thank you so much for staying at our place and visiting Zihua!

Modern, well appointed, roomy two-bedroom with stunning view. Great location, walk to everything.
We stayed here for a month, 10 days of which we shared with another couple. Definitely a top-notch condo with fantastic view and in a great location! We could walk downstairs to Madera beach for a swim in two minutes, and be at two other beaches or downtown in 15 minutes. The pool, seldom used by others it seems, is just above and features a great lounge area and that same stunning view. The condo was very clean, and was kept so by maids during our stay, and has everything you need.
Matt and Ali have a great manager when they're away - friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to show you around if you so choose. When they arrived, Matt and Ali made themselves available to help or answer questions as needed, but never imposed themselves.
We definitely recommend this roomy, comfortable condo. It was quite hot when we were there but the excellent fans and the bedroom air conditioners made us perfectly at ease. We don't usually give five stars , but this place has it all! We'll be back.
Thanks for staying! Hopefully we'll see you around Zihua and on the pickleball courts this winter.

Brand New and Perfect Condo
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!
