About the Property

3bedroom3baths with top of the line ammenities. Beautiful Garden views

This property is the nicest unit available for rent in The Residencias Villa Del Sol.

From the moment your plane touches down you will know how special this vacation is going to be. Concierge pickup at the airport will take you to your “vacation home”. The Residencias is the only place that offers the security and amenities of a luxury resort and all the privacy of your own home. As you enter down the walkway with palm tree arches you will know how special “Celito Lindo” is. This special home opens up to gardens filled with tropical flowers and Palms many swimming pools and the amazing beaches of Playa La Ropa. Lupita the maid will make fresh Guacamole, fresh OJ and if you like shop and prepare meals for you. She is a great cook.*

The beds have all been upgraded and are soft and comfortable. The master bedroom has its own private patio and lovely en-suite bath with marble tile and inlaid stone work. There is a 'bunk' room with 4 beds and an ensuite bath as well. Each room has it's own TV and DVD palyer. There is enough separation for privacy. Throughout both these units the quality is apparent. The private Jacuzzi that overlooks the amazing Gardens and Pool are just one element that makes this spot so special. There is a fully equipped kitchen, open floor plan with living room, patio, and dining room that seats 8. There is a second unit that can be opened up for a total of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, perfect for two families or more. We have a Bose music system, and many different games. I love to play dominoes, Mexican train is a favorite.
We are constantly upgrading to make our home comfortable for the discerning traveler. We have some outstanding artwork that we hope compliments the style of our home. The patio in the living area has doors that slide open so you can enjoy the warmth of Mexico, hear the birds, sip a drink while the sun goes down over the ocean. I love watching all the different varieties of birds in the trees.
If you prefer, meander down through the gardens lined with hibiscus, bougainvillea, and palm trees to one of the restaurants on the beach! The food at The Viceroy is outstanding and you can eat with your toes in the sand. The restaurants also offer more formal dining. The Viceroy, formally Villa Del Sol, is recognized as one of the outstanding hotels in Mexico by Conde Naste, Travel and Leisure and Esquire.

Please inquire for rates and details to add the unit next door for 3BR/3BA.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My Husband and I met at a local parade. I am lucky enough to have lived abroad and my Husband studied in Mexico City as a young man. We both love to travel but also love the Town of Zihuatanejo. I have been visiting Zihuatanejo since 1984, My husband and I were married in Zihuatanejo at the church in town in 2002. When we got married we decided that rather than buy a large home we would get a place in Zihuatanejo so we can always come down when we want and hope to retire here one day..I have been a Realtor for 23 years and my husband is a flooring contractor. We have one black Lab. We love coming here with our friends and spending a fun filled week or two. My husband loves to sport fish and recently won a small car in the local annual fishing tournament for the biggest Marlin caught. We both graduated from UCSC after attending different Universites. I went to Colorado College, and my husband was at UCBerkley after returning home from Viet Nam. We are lucky to find a spot that is so soothing for both our busy lives.

Why the Owner Chose Playa La Ropa, Gro., Mexico:
It is only a 4 hour flight and then you are on the beautiful beaches. It has warm weather, amazing food and drinks. Zihuatanejo has great restaurants and lots of fun shopping and galleries but maintains the Mexican Culture and is a small fishing village. It offers some of the best sport fishing in Mexico and the warm water is wonderful for swimming and snorkeling. My husband and I were married in the small church in town. We have been coming here for 16 years and we love it.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Great outdoor activity, excellent sport fishing, beautiful beaches and warm water. The walk through the tropical gardens to the beach is so lovely. The resort is completely secure and worry free. Which makes it Relaxing and fun. It provides amenities for every age and every desire, from being fully pampered to being left alone completely to read a book. Every need is met yet there is more privacy than staying in a hotel. We love getting up in the morning to take a long walk along the beach, swim and then have a breakfast of fresh papaya, mango and melons.
