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.

Thanks, Connie! What a lovely home you have. The pool is the best! I’m afraid to say that we didn’t do much besides hanging out at the pool and the beach, other than eating all that shrimp and guacamole......yum!
This is a wonderful condo, that was just perfect for my husband and I and our teenage son and his friend. Very accommodating staff, gorgeous views as you can see. Can't wait to return.
We stayed a week at Connie and Paul's condo from March 15-23, Everything was perfect. Connie even called to make sure everything was ok. The condo had all the amenities of home and Blancha came and cleaned twice while we were there. She does a great job. There are 2 beautiful infinity pools and plenty of lounge chairs .It has a beautiful view of the ocean and is just a short walk to the beach and into town,
( there are a few hill to walk up however but great exercise) , Thanks Connie and we'll definitely come back .

A Great Choice!
We stayed here in November and had a wonderful experience. As others have reported, the condo is gorgeous and the view is incredible. You'll feel blessed when you wake up to the view from the master bedroom. There was nothing better than sitting on the patio with a cocktail at the end of the day soaking up the view and feeling the warm, balmy tropical air. You're in for a treat the first time you hear the call of a Chacalaca (local bird) - They have a very unique sound.
We loved walking to both La Ropa and Las Gatas beaches. We had fun walking to Las Gatas using the rocky coastal path and then taking the water taxi from there back into town. We rented a car but if you plan on staying in the Zihua area only, I would recommend not renting one. We had no problem walking from the condo to anywhere in La Ropa or central Zihua. The cabs are very inexpensive too so using them several times a day would still be less expensive than renting a car. Everyone in town is very friendly and we always felt safe.
Thanks Connie for a wonderful stay - We look forward to returning again!
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.
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!
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.
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!
