About Michele Engelskirch

Hello my name is Michele and I love Zihuatanejo, Mexico. I came down here in October of 2006 and fell in love with the town, people, the view of the ocean, the waves crashing and great food, and I purchased the condo right away. It was a fast sale. I am still learning my way around Zihua, but I have a great time learning. I have met some of the nicest people and great friends. My true love is The Humane Society of Zihuantanejo, it is kept very clean and the spay and neuter clinics are really helping out, the owner Natalia is a loving and caring person and takes great care of the animals.

Michele Engelskirch purchased this condo in 2006

Why Michele Engelskirch chose Zihuatanejo

You can go to any vacation place in the world and have good food and an abundance of tourists or chain stores and restaurants, when you come to Zihuatanejo you come for the true Mexican way of life, you live in their world, you see the beauty and family love, and you learn their traditions, which I must say is so much better than just a vacation. It is something that you will never forget, and you will tell your friends about your experience.

What makes this condo unique

La Casa Que Ve Al Mar is a very nice place to stay and the views of La Ropa Beach are outstanding. The complex itself is only 39 units, half are rentals and the other half are not, so you are not fighting for space. And the owners are all nice people and know so much about Zihuatanejo any information you want to know about they will not hesitate to fill you in, have a notebook ready. The Management and Security are outstanding. And Building B is so quiet and serene that you will love it. My condo is so quiet you can hear the ocean but no other noise from the pool or the road it is wonderful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Michele....

I know you generally correspond with Chris.......I wanted to let you know your place is beautiful and far exceeded any of our expectations! We so appreciate your personal touches and can actually feel like we are at home here. The bulding mgr. is excellent and showed us everything. I was surprised to see a towel swan with beautiful flowers on the bed! I would really appreciate your input as to the appropriate gratuity for your cleaning lady who comes twice a week while we are here and also for Eliezer. It would make me feel better as your tenant to do the right thing!

Tomorrow, we'll take those humongous shopping bags and do an order!

We went down to the beach as soon as we changed....and even after being forewarned not to wear our sunglasses......we did...and we both lost them on the same wave!!! I guess I don;t need to tell you how beautiful the beach is because you know already!

Thankyou so much,

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful complex and the pool is AMAZING. Views are to die for and I just loved staying here. What a great intro to Zihua. Thank you Michele for a cozy and well decorated place to hang my hat for 3 weeks. I loved it there and will definitely return.

Awesome view of LaRopa Beach and very nice unit

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month in mexico staying in several places on east and west coast.

This complex has a great view of the LaRopa beach and ocean with two pools that overlook the ocean. It is very well equipped with absolutely everything you would need including washer and dryer which we were glad to have. The unit and property were very well taken care of and communication was great. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to go and really appreciate the opportunity to stay in your home and hope many others get the opportunity. The people in the entire area are absolutely the MOST friendly and truly good people, the people alone are worth the journey.

Thanks again for letting us use your unit at such a GREAT VALUE

Aesthetically pleasing condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at another condo before coming to this one and were delighted when we checked in. I loved the colors and interesting design and the coziness of this condo compared to the previous one. The windows were great for letting in fresh air and I loved listening to those crazy birds chattering in the morning and watching the turkey vultures flying overhead looking for a meal. All other comments I agree with re cleanliness and comfort and the pools. And the air conditioners worked as it was hot and humid. I would have liked to have had a few small things as we often cooked our meals at home...a whisk, potato peeler, cheap juicer and a few more bowls. I kept forgetting to buy them at Commercial Mexicana.( Sorry Michelle, it would have been my present to you for sharing your lovely condo with us at such a reasonable price.) There is also another store Bodega Aurora but it is not as clean as Commercial. It was more like a warehouse and cheaper. This condo complex is well maintained, however , it is perched on a hill and not for people who have problems walking up or down hills. Also you have to go up stairs to the elevator although there is access to the elevator at the back of the building but it's a long walk to get to it. The hill is steep to the road but there are stairs from the security station to the road. My husband developed a back problem so he had difficulty getting around. We took a lot of cabs which were cheap and the drivers were honest and very obliging and arrived within a few minutes. Also, Eli was wonderful and very helpful when we had any problems and he spoke perfect English. For the price this condo is a gem and I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful Zihuatanjo

  • 5 of 5

Just home from beautiful Zihuatanjo. Michele's condo is perfect! The location is exceptional with with just a short walk to both the beach or town center. In the condo there is everything you need. Just move on and get going. Unpacking is optional! While we did minimal cooking everything you need is there if that's your thing. The condo is clean, comfortable and a great oasis after a long day at the beach or shopping. The pools are fabulous and have a wonderful view of LA Ropa beach. I would happily return again and again!

Excellent Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful getaway for my family! The space was clean, beautifully decorated and extremely functional with all that is available. The staff were very friendly and transportation to and from the place was very easy by taxi or comfy (local buses). The views from the apartment were lovely and it was a short walk to the gorgeous pools on the property. I highly recommend this property. Thank you for making it available and for such a great rate!

Minutes walk from the beach, in the lovely complex of La Casa Que Ve Al Mar. All your shopping needs in the town of Zihuantanejo, silver, gold, art and crafts, clothing and many other shops to choose from. Yoga is offered down on the beach above Paty's Restaurant, only a 5 minute walk from the condo. The food along the beach is wonderful. It is the best location in town, and remember to visit Jungle Pizza!! And remember when you stay at La Casa Que Ve Al Mar it is so easy to get around and the back building is so QUIET that you will want to sleep for a day!!
