WOW! We’ll be back-same time next year but longer. Not only is the Marlin House an exceptional place of accommodation, it exceeds the mere words of description on the website.
THE VIEW!! Mother nature created this masterpiece and your place has given us a peek of the beauty seen through her eyes. Josi & Victor, Seattle

The glowing recommendation of your website have been exceeded on all counts. “The Marlin House” has been a dream vacation for us. The view, the pools, the beautifully decorated condo, all just super! We are happy to spread the word on the “perfect” Mexican vacation in Zihua at The Marlin House.
P.S. For the best fishing, go out in their new red and white boat, “The Huntress” with Captain Francisco, the best skipper in Zihua. John & Lyn , Oakville, WA

This has been a “fabulous “ vacation. This is the honeymoon we never had and will definitely be back. The condo is perfect in everyway and beautifully decorated. The view is spectacular; coffee in the morning looking out at the water and boats is breathtaking. The sunsets are beautiful from both the living room and master bedroom. We loved the local restaurants and shopping. Thank you both so much for making this a most memorable stay. We will be back for more.
Gail & Karl, Linthicum, MD

Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico:
A little history about our adventure to this beautiful paradise. We are an avid offshore fishing couple. After fishing here and in many different countries for about 10 years, we decided that we could have the best of all worlds, wonderful fishing, wonderful beaches wonderful weather and best of all, wonderful and sincere people. We found our oasis in this little laid-back unknown town known to the locals as Zihua. We hope that you will be as enchanted as we are.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Marlin house is located close to good restaurants, within walking distance to town and beaches. La Ropa beach, (Beach of Clothes), is a five minute walk where you will find swimming, boating, para sailing, Hobie cats and kayaks, water skiing, banana boating and casual dining. Las Gatas beach (Beach of Cats) is located across the bay and can be reached by taking a water taxi from the town pier for 40 pesos, round trip. Great beach side restaurants and snorkeling. Sunset and night-time cruise boats, both sail and power are available during peak season. Most renters say that a week is not enough time to see and enjoy all that Zihua has to offer
