About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

You have arrived! Located only 15 minutes from the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Airport, our deluxe condo is situated high above the white-sand La Ropa Beach on the Bay of Zihuatanejo (land of women). Casa de Serenidad, our 1300 sq. ft. casa has two master bedrooms with private baths, a covered terrace, and views of the Pacific Ocean from all rooms in the house.

Located just a short walk to the beach and a quick and cheap taxi ride, bus, or walk to town, we are the authentically designed gated community La Casa Que Ve al Mar (the house that looks out to the sea). A premier 39 unit resort, created by renowned architect Enrique Zozoya who is known for the exclusive La Casa Que Canta,we are a non-commercial vacation destination, combining comfort, privacy and fantastic amenities!

Grandly sitting high on the hillside, the gently blowing ocean breezes and views of the blue Pacific will soothe your soul. Our Casa de Serenidad is a contemporary condominium featuring modern amenities located on the 2nd floor with an elevator and ramp for easy access. Beautifully designed, the condo is artfully decorated with native Mexican art & pottery, hand-loomed fabrics, handcrafted cabinetry and tropical beach rattan furnishings. The sand blasted marble floors with intricate inlaid stone designs, walls textured with authentic “grass” and hand-polished plaster walls creates the serene setting for your next vacation. We hope you’ll enjoy our favorite place in the entire condo where the hammock hangs below the Mexican tile roofed terrace, a perfect spot for siestas and sunset cocktails.

Prepared with your needs in mind, everything has been supplied for your comfort including premium linens, comfortable queen-size mattresses, hair dryers, quiet, cool air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen (pots/pans/blender/juicer/baking dishes - we have it all! )with high back Mexican style bar seating or dining al fresco on the view terrace.

Enjoy all of the comforts of home, with none of the stress. Use our in-house washer/dryer, maid service two times each week (or more as you wish), and meal preparation upon request. Satellite TV on the 37” flat screen offers a good selection of English speaking channels. We have a good supply of DVD’s, and don’t forget your iPod for the docking station. The condo has free Wi-Fi internet access and purified water.

Casa Que Ve al Mar’s two infinity swimming pools come alive for glistening sunsets, when friendly guests share cocktails as they watch the sun drop over the Pacific Ocean. This small, classy resort has it all…lush tropical landscaping, on-site parking, 24/7 gated security and on-site English/Spanish speaking management. We are ideally located next to the charming fishing village of Zihuatanejo, just 15 minutes from the upscale vacation destination of Ixtapa.

A perfect day includes a leisurely stroll along fisherman’s walk to El Centro where you can mix with tourists and locals alike. Walk 10 minutes for a beachside massage, to rent a kayak, parasail or to play in the sand and surf at La Ropa Beach. For an evening out, stroll to one of the 5 star dining establishments or locally owned beach spots, or if you prefer dining in, stock your kitchen and bar from the colorful Mercado (open-air market) or from one of the two modern super markets nearby. Taxi service is readily available with bargain price door-to door service. The local bus stops just steps away and is a fast, cheap and a flavorful way to get around!

The condo provides ample room for four people. Rates vary according to season. See the rate chart below and calendar for available times. Zihuatanejo is very special to us and our goal is to do everything possible to make Zihua a very special place in your heart, too. We love Zihuatanejo and hope that you will, too!

About Connie Sorensen

Hi! We're Paul & Connie Sorensen. We love Zihuatanejo and spend two months during the winter months. We have been then nearly every month of the year...and love it anytime!!! Something happens to you when you're there. The minute you step off the plane and feel the warm air, see the many smiling faces and you say to yourself, 'I'm home.' That is how it is for us.

Connie Sorensen purchased this condo in 2006

Why Connie Sorensen chose Playa La Ropa

We completed our purchase in 2006 when it was brick and mortar. Paul, a contractor on Vashon Island, WA, supervised a local contractor to build our dreams in mid 2008. Together we designed the condo interior, shopped in Patzcuarro, Morelia and Zihua for furnishings and by December 2008 we loaded our Mexico car and took a road trip to our new vacation home! It was a great trip and we thoroughly enjoyed creating our Zihua home. We first began visiting Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo in the early 2000's and on our first trip bought a time share. As the years went by, we realized that Zihutanejo felt like home. We have never regretted our decision to purchase a vacation property and each year we feel more and more a part of the community.

What makes this condo unique

The condo community is a wonderful group of folks from various backgrounds and the Zihua community is friendly, safe and full of local Mexican culture. We socialize with many of the other owners and renters whom we meet poolside. Chatting poolside, I hear a lot of reasons why guests come back year after year...mostly, they love the people that they meet at the pool. They love how well maintained and beautiful the complex is and they feel safe and well cared for by our staff. The other popular poolside conversation is "What's for dinner?". You will get the scoop about where to get good food! Sundays at Playa Larga is a family affair among the Mexicans and we enjoy being part of that. Weekend nights are fun at the Basketball court in downtown Zihua by the water. There's always a ton of locals out enjoying the evening. La Ropa Beach is always a special treat when we camp out for the day at La Perla. There chairs are the best! I enjoy yoga or a massage at Pati's on La Ropa Beach. We hope you will come to love Zihuatanejo as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week in Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa! The weather was beautiful all week and the view from the condo and infinity pools is unbelievable. Thank you for sharing your home - we loved it and would love to come back! For other guests, if you have a chance to visit Playa Linda to see the crocodiles and birds and the iguanas - it is well worth the cab ride! We also enjoyed the superb snorkeling on Istapa Island - a short ferry ride from Playa Linda.

Simply Lovely.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful - the view is stunning. The condo is also beautiful and amazingly furnished and equipped. All communications with the owner before our stay, and the entire staff during our stay, were excellent. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend this property.

It is quite a climb up from La Ropa beach which we did not mind (must work off the drinks and yummy food somehow), but it is worth mentioning.

Owner's Response: Must always find a way to work off the yummy food and margaritas! I agree with Christine! We usually take our walks along the beach or to La Madera or town. Everything is so close...then we settle for a taxi ride home!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time here. The condo is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The place shows pride in ownership.

We would have enjoyed some nice chaise loungers on the patio. Other than that excellent.

Owner's Response: We love our terrace and our comfy sling back chairs and hammock. We also love our al fresco dining which also has comfy traditional leather chairs with arms for those who prefer to be more upright. We typically enjoy our terrace in the morning with coffee or at night with a cocktail. You are sheltered from the sun all day until around 5 PM...but that is pool time! Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Nice View. Good for 1-2 Couples

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful unit with a good view of the bay from both the balcony and the master bedroom. The unit is clean and in good shape. The second bedroom is small but functional. Be aware that the bed in the second bedroom is small, but not a problem if you're not overly tall. The kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals and plastic cups for poolside. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to to our friends and family

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, Thank you for the review. As a point of information, both beds are queen sized, though the master bedroom bed was custom made so it is Cal King length for my 6'7" husband. The bed in the second bedroom is a standard queen and is the same size as typical queen sized beds. We have had tall friends sleep there and hadn't had any complaints. The view from the balcony is also enjoyed from the living room and the kitchen where we have an eating bar and certainly from the second bedroom, but only if the privacy doors are open. Again, we are happy you stayed at Casa de Serenidad and thank you for the 4 Star Review!

A wonderful week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Connie and Paul's beautiful place. The condo is comfortable, well equipped and the views are spectacular. We especially loved laying in bed at night and hearing the waves hit the shore, so surprised that we could hear them so well. The condo had everything we could possibly need and is beautiful and a wonderful place to come home to after a day of activites. Whether out exploring, beaching it or relaxing at "home," we were comfortable and relaxed. Eli, the manager, was extremely helpful whenever we had need for a suggestion and once we rented a car, we really got to know Zihua, went to the Commercial whenever we needed something , drove up to take a look at Ixtapa (no comparison to Zihua!) and even south to Barra de Potosi. Everything was perfect! Connie's book of suggestions was so helpful as was her friend Harriet's. Our vacation in Zihuatenejo and, in particular, at Casa de Serenidad was FABULOUS!

An Amazing and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This by far was one of the most fantastic vacations that we have ever experienced. From the accommodations to the beaches of La Ropa, this getaway is one for the record. Zihua is a quiet and beautiful destination spot. The pictures of the accommodations did not do the property any justice as it was even more amazing in person. (I believe the master bedroom overlooking La Ropa beach left us in awe from first view and it just kept getting better.) Connie was more than thorough in giving us a guidebook from arrival at the airport to the best places to eat.

Even though we were probably the youngest couple at the property, we enjoyed meeting all of the owners and/or vacationers during our daily sunset dip in one of the two infinite pools. We will definitely be making a return trip to Zihua and would recommend everyone to stay at Case de Serenidad!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This entire trip was absolutely phenomenal. Our service and tips and tricks for around the town were completely on point and accurate. This made Navigation and activities easy to find, as well as be prepared for stress free. I would definitely recommend the stay to anyone that is simply trying to get away and relax. If it weren't for vacationing to somewhere different every time, I dont think there is anywhere else in Zihuatanejo I would rather stay. The seclusion of the area as far as a romantic getaway could not have been much better, as the feeling of the town was a very homey, small town presence.
