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,

Noreen

Perfect location and lovely decor

  • 5 of 5

The location, just a 5 minute walk to Playa La Ropa*, was perfect. We walked the entire mile of it, then continued the short but rocky path to Las Gatas. Plenty to explore, do, eat, and photograph on both beaches.

*Dona Prudencia's is a restaurant right on the beach in front of the Villa Mexicana Hotel. They serve a dish of shrimp, whitefish, and mushrooms in a chipotle cream sauce that was a favorite of our entire trip. Definitely recommend it!

The unit itself was amazing. Michele has thought of every touch to ensure her guests feel at home, from sun hats and beach bags in the closet, to a CD player with an eclectic mix of Mexican tunes. The kitchen was very functional and featured everything we could possibly need including lovely regional glassware. I was concerned about not having windows in the bedroom, but the sightline through the condo to the kitchen windows worked fine and provided a very quite night's sleep. My favorite feature of the property was the décor. The oversized artwork, plentiful pillows, and warm color palette were both striking and welcoming.

Though the view from the condo is partially obstructed, it was only a short walk to the pools where the panorama is breathtaking. Compared to a few other pools in Zihua, these were exceptional, as the photos portray.

Overall, we were thrilled with our stay here and hope to come back for a longer stay. Thank you, Michelle, for being so accommodating.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The views are spectacular.

The infinity pool is just what is needed after the steep walk up to the condo (for those who can't manage, taxis are only a few dollars from town or beach).

The 1 bedroom condo is like staying at a 5 star hotel.

Everything is within walking distance.

This is my second visit to Zihua staying here at la Casa ve Al mar and I have booked again for next year.

Absolutely stunning property and view!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Zihua.

Property was very well represented in its online site.

Owner of our unit, Michele , was very prompt replying to our questions and very thorough in her description of her unit and the property.

Property is very well managed and as gorgeous as it appears in the photos ,it is moreso in person.

We knew Michele's unit did not have a balcony when we booked and we did miss not having one. We felt a little shut in, although the suite itself is beautiful and well appointed.

If we did not rebook it would only be due to the lack of a balcony.

Property location is very good. Beach is walkable as is Centro zihua, however it is hilly and a trek. We are fit and active and was still a trek.

We walked into town almost daily and almost always taxi'd back. Taxis are cheap and plentiful.

Loved zihua, the small town feel, the people, the breathtaking scenery etc.

Would return in a heartbeat.

Thanks Michele for being so easy to deal with and your prompt honest replies to our questions.

Being first timers you are always unsure of what you are getting . This property exceeded our expectations.

Casa Que Ve Al Mar is in a word "Breathtaking"

P.S. Ride safe....

  • 5 of 5

stayed in this condo for the last 2 years. perfect in every way. although there is no outdoor deck, the wide open kitchen windows bring the outside in. the bedroom with the big barn door is perfect for sleeping in. my only complaint is that we are not able to book for next year! its already taken!! :(

This is a great place to stay in an incredible location just above La Ropa Beach. easily 5 star

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom suite radiates rustic Mexican charm, with cozy terracotta colors and stone inlay throughout. The shuttered kitchen opens out to provide an airy view to the harbor entrance and magnificent daily sunsets. A quick trip down the stairs to the infinity pool for a swim and some sun bathing soon became a daily ritual. We finished each day lounging on the incredibly large sectional either reading or watching TV before retiring to the comfy king-sized bed (life is good). Everything that we needed; from towels and hats, to extra pillows were graciously supplied by the owner (thanks Michele).

It is about a 5 minute walk down the hill to la Ropa beach where the sun , sand, water and restaurants do not disappoint. And what can be said of Zihuatanejo; probably one of the best tropical vacation destinations ever. Great beaches, lovely people, wonderful restaurants and the odd Margarita!! Spectacular!!

Enjoy
