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 Playa La Ropa

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,

Oct 2013

Fantastic in all respects!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Micheles condo, the first was last August. The condo has everything you need, glassware, cooking, Sat TV, comfortable bed, a nice view of the bay, hot water, and two functioning air conditioning units.

The condo complex has two of the most beautiful swimming pools we've ever experienced! A pure delight to take a dip 3-4 times a day, meet people, have cocktails poolside.

Several restaurants are within a 5 minute walk down to the beach with happy hour, massages, and wonderful people everywhere. Several more restaurants are within walking distance the other way, and for 50 pesos ($3 US) you can take a cab into town for even more restaurants. We highly recommend Rufos, Elmari, and Jungle Pizza!!

We are already planning our August visit and can't wait!!

This is an amazing condo in Zihuatanejo which I highly recommend with absolutely zero reservations. The location is perfect just above La Ropa beach and a short 20 minute walk into Zihuatanejo town center. High on the hill the views from the infinity pools are breathtaking. The condo is a perfect size for two adults. It comes with everything you need. The king-size bed is ultra-comfortable. The air conditioning is quiet and effective. The entire condo is immaculate, airy, quiet and very comfortable. I have stayed at Michelle's condo for 3 years running and I would always come back. The only downside is having to leave and return to Edmonton snow. Michelle is a wonderful host and owner. She communicates directly and thoroughly. Michelle has become a friend even though we have never as much as laid eyes on each other. She responds quickly to any and all concerns and leaves tons of info in the condo on the best places to eat and go in the area. All of the staff at the condo (including the security staff, grounds keeper and house cleaners) are friendly, respectful and effective. They provide service with a huge Mexican smile. And, they also love teaching us new Spanish words daily. Overall EXCELLENTÈ!!!

Bad owner, great property

  • 1 of 5

Do not review this property until you have received your deposit money back...if you have a good experience, THEN write your will be asked at check out, before you get your deposit wait to see what happens...this is my advise.

My experience:

One of the owner's wine glasses was cracked, it broke literally after i poured wine in it and took a sip, cracked in my mouth, and she insists on charging me for at least 2 replacement glasses. I don't care about the $14 charge back, but I didn't break the glass, and when I wrote Michele about it, she wouldn't make it right. RED FLAG when renting from someone like this. The agreement you enter into states you must let them know in advance of anything which might be broken before you start to use it, etc. Beware of other notices, signs posted in the condo...they will check on you and even went through my garbage!

I was sent pictures of my garbage for evidence of the broken wine glass....really?? I felt this was weird and would never rent from her again.

The condo is beautiful, but be careful of this management personnel and owner....

I didn't think I needed to inspect every glass in the room, but apparently I should have..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, though I know through e-mails to me that you had a wonderful time and the condo was beautiful and just what you needed because it had everything in it that you needed. And the location was great for getting to the beach. My Property Management team, just as every other VRBO Owner have count checks of glasses and silverware, check for stains of any kind and check the whole unit for any damage, this is stated in the Application that every Renter signs and agrees to. I am very sorry that the wine glass that you used broke, and it was a set of Crystal glasses, I only charged for less than half of the set because I understand damage happens and most of my renters contact me and just replace it with something at the Commercial. You put the broken glass in the trash can and the maid found it and her job is to report damage to Property Management and send photo's. I follow my Rules and Regulations and only charged $15.00 from your Security deposit which I thought was a very fair amount, I am so sorry that you disagree. Everything else was great with your experience at La Casa Que Ve Al Mar and I am happy that you enjoyed it. I am very sorry that affected my rating of the Property on a review as you can see all my reviews are a few 4 and the rest 5's. And a lot of my reviews gave me personal messages saying that dealing with Michele was great and she is very happy to answer any questions, and gives great advice for where to eat and visit, as an owner that is what I do, because I give out a lot of information and treat my renters very professional, most of my business is repeat customers. Few renters that broke very expensive things in the Unit have just gone to town and replaced it with something original or something close to what they accidently broke, and they always contact me and send pictures. This Unit does have expensive things in it because that is why it is called, Paradise in Zihua, you have everything you need, at a great price. I am glad that you had a great time in the Unit and enjoyed the beautiful grounds and had a wonderful time with your sister. Thank you again, Michele

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!!
