About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Casa Margarita is in a new gated condominium complex close to the beaches and the central shopping & nightlife areas. Located in the Playa Madera district between the famous La Ropa beach & El Centro. Playa Madera is a short two minute walk away, La Ropa beach is an 8-10 minutes walk. The town center, a short 8-10 minute stroll away, has a bustling, vibrant central food, farmers & artisans market with many local restaurants. The town beach has a fishermens' market. There is a central square which hosts many local sporting & cultural activities.

The town hosts an Annual International Guitar Festival & Saifest.

The complex has a unique look with modern Mexican architectural influences utilizing tropical hardwoods, river stone accents and polished concrete. The apartment comprises bedroom with king size bed & en-suite bath, living room and kitchen plus a large private patio - your outdoor living space for al fresco dining , napping on the sofa or relaxing in the king size hammock- perfect for lovers. The furnishings are designed for your comfort and visual delight with a contemporary Mexican feel. Your condo is equipped with everything you might expect: high thread count sheets, fluffy towels, luxurious soaps and a hair dryer, plus quality kitchen & table ware, beach towels, weekly cleaning service and a welcome pack. The owners live in Zihuatanejo for most of the year & can respond quickly to their guests.

Zihuatanejo enjoys a warm, sunny climate year round with a short rainy season between July & October. Although most visitors come between mid-November & April, the low season offers wonderful opportunities for a relaxed vacation at a discounted price. The seasonal rain usually falls in the early evening with sunny days. The vegetation is lush & tropical with an abundance of flowers. It's our favorite time of year.

Zihuatanejo has a very Mexican feel. No high rise buildings or hotel chains: no fast food chains. Great night life scene with live, mellow music. Marina has an array of sports-fishing opportunities. Snorkeling/diving outfitters & trips to local beaches & beauty spots available. Zihuatanejo has direct links with major US cities. The airport is ten minutes by car from the city, taxis are cheap and plentiful so you can forget about the rental car -just come and relax.

We hope to welcome you here to our lovely paradise.

A safe and well appointed little paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Zihuatanejo and at Peter and Carol’s condo. Situated in secure and colourful surroundings, this condo has everything you should need if you like to prepare your own meals, and a lovely open air patio on which to spend your relaxing time. We didn’t watch the tv, but enjoyed having the access to the Sirius channels to listen to music. The other condo residents were very welcoming and eager to provide us with suggestions and directions as required. As is typical of Mexico, the surroundings were fairly noisy at times, no fault of Peter and Carols, but we would suggest taking ear plugs as we always do to ensure a good nights sleep. All things considered, we had a wonderful time, loved the condo, pool and areas to sun bathe and easy access to so many great places to eat out.

Quaint building and good location

  • 3 of 5

The owners are a very nice couple and helpful with anything we needed. The condo complex is small and quaint with a beautiful courtyard and pool area lush with trees and vegetation. The other condos are mostly owned by retired Canadians and Americans who are all very friendly. Our only issue is with the shared internet. It was very slow and would not allow me to work or do Skype calls so this was a problem.

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation - from the time of our initial contact to the day we had to pack up to come home! Peter and Carol were fantastic hosts. The casa was just perfect. The kitchen had everything you could need, and we loved hanging out by the pool. The bed was very comfortable (important when staying somewhere for any length of time). The grounds were kept up beautifully, and the neighbours were very welcoming. We were given lots of information of what to see, where to dine, and what to do in Zihua. We walked to the beaches, took a water taxi to Las Gatas, and a bus to Ixtapa! The people are very friendly everywhere. We miss it already. Thanks again for your hospitality! Peace!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ceiba is a great complex, it is walking distance to beaches, restaurants and shopping, the other condo owners were very friendly and helpful, the unit is spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed having a full kitchen as we cooked breakfast every day, we walked everywhere, each day was a new adventure, we shopped in the local market and dined every night in a different restaurant. The locals are great, the food is so fresh and this little town is a gem. Peter and Carol are very friendly and easy to deal with. If you are considering Zihuat and would like to be within walking distance to everything this is the place to stay.
