About Jack

We found Zihuatanejo about 20 years ago. At first we stayed in Hotels but became so completely entranced with the area we had to buy a condo to be able to spend more time there each year. The complex and our condo reflects our love of peace and tranquility.

Jack purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jack chose Zihuatanejo

Zihuatanejo is a real, live, working Mexican fishing village. Our wonderful Mexican neighbors are just that, our neighbors and Friends. We always feel welcome and part of the Zihua. family when we are there. Having traveled much of the world I must say that Zihua. is very special and inviting to guests.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is new, fresh and beautifully decorated. The views from every room in the condo are spectacular.

Amazing accomodations and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how fabulous this "villa" is! Kitchen, laundry, balcony with breath-taking views, TWO infinity pools! Close to everything (beach, restaurants, town). This home is spacious, welcoming. The on-site manager, Dulce, is warm and available. Rosalinda is the housekeeper and not intrusive at all. Do not miss sunset! Thank you very much for sharing your lovely home!

Simply Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jack's lovely Casa Vista Grande condo for 7 nights later part of February. As all other reviews mention, the views from this condo are outstanding, great amenities in the condo, comfortable bed and nice kitchen to do some cooking. Also utilized the washer & dryer, worked great. Very, very quiet, everyone around us and the complex itself. There is the main road very nearby, but didn't create a lot of noise. The grounds around the complex and pools, lovely, lovely, very well maintained. Speaking of pool, we loved, loved, LOVED the larger infinity edge pool We were there every day and was never crowded...still dreaming of that pool! Great location, just 5 minute walk down to La Ropa beach (fantastic beach) and within walking distance to many other restaurants as well. We loved the walking up and down hill, but could easily be a problem with people with mobility issues, but we also on occasion took taxis up the hill to get back to condo after a long day out. Taxis very cheap and easy to get one. Dealing with Jack was a pleasure, and he answered all my questions promptly. Shout out to Antonio, on-site Concierge, he picked us up from the airport and he also pre-stocked the condo with grocery items for us, as well as helping make a few reservations here and there and calling us some taxis at night. Was a pleasure dealing with him and felt like we made a good friend by the time we left. A+ to Antonio!! We would rent Casa Vista Grande again in a heartbeat, thanks so much Jack for sharing your piece of paradise with us!!!! Kind Regards, Laurie & Steve Belmont

This will be the 20th 5-STAR Rating for CASA VISTA GRANDE.

We echo all the positive comments about Jack, the condo, the complex, the neighbours, the staff, the view and the location.

My husband and I stayed for 16 days in December. Our first time to Zihuat and 1st time in condo vs 16 times in all inclusive resorts throughout mexico. I said, 'I don't want to cook and do laundry while on vacation' LOL..but I LOVED having daily access to laundry and to a full made our vacation. Dinners out of course and a couple of nights ordering pizza in, but nice to be able to fix a snack or make some nachos without having to go out. One night we had neighbours over for appies and bevies and another night we went to their place. Wouldn't do that in a hotel room. A couple of nights we even watched Netflix (nice touch to have access to movies if want a quiet night to relax).

Jack, Antonio and Rosalinda with a shout out to Eli...we thank you all for our wonderful, memorable vacation and can't wait to see you again SOON. Hasta Luego. (Sherry and Donovan)

Million Dollar Views

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful the pictures really don't do it justice. We stayed here for a short 5 day trip and were so sad to leave. Tons of space with an amazing view. It was so lovely waking up each morning and being met with the beautiful view in the master bedroom. The grounds were amazing too. So much little detail that really made this place wonderful, including 2 infinity pools (maybe not such a little detail).

It was very clean and had a cleaning lady come daily. Jack was awesome, provided us with really great information about the town as well as the rental. The rental is only a 5 minute walk to the beach which has great restaurants, bars, and watersports. You can also walk to town which is only 25/30 minute walking distance.

We loved this property and will definitely recommend this beautiful place to our friends and family. We even looked at posted properties on this grounds because we are so convinced we want to move there!

Thank you Jack! we had a wonderful time.

Family Vacation - Unbelievable Experiences!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved staying here. 10 days over Christmas with two teenagers was very comfortable for us. The en-suite bathroom is a nice added touch for the master bedroom. Well laid out condo. Air Conditioner was appreciated as we are not used to the humidity! The view from the condo is very breathtaking! Every morning we would sit on the deck to read and enjoy the view. Grounds are well maintained and very lush! We made use of the well stocked kitchen. Appreciated the water filtration system, filled up water bottles for the days activities. The affinity pools had umbrellas and chairs and had an amazing view of the bay. Books available to read and return. Our kids appreciated Wi-Fi and Internet access as did we, to wish our families a Merry Christmas! Location is as advertised. 10 minutes to the beach and a short cab ride to the center of Zihu! Eliezer, was in charge of guest services and was helpful with any questions we had. Great customer service! Our highlight was watching the sea turtles hatch and we had the opportunity to release them out to the ocean. Unbelievable! My husband and I took a cooking class with Monica (patio to book in advance). She toured us to the markets (fresh fish, beef, vegetables, fruit, bread and spices) and gave us tips on what to buy. We prepared our own salsa and learned how to prepare an authentic Mexican meal. Wonderful experience! Our family is very active! Here is a few of our highlights: Kayaked at Barra de Potosi, Snorkeled at Las Gatas and Ixtapa Island. Fishing with "Moses" and the fish that we caught were then prepared for a fresh lunch. Zip-lined at Ixtapa. Sunset cruise on the Picante. Parasailed, Jet-skied, and rode the waves on La Ropa Beach. Restaurants we loved: Il Mare, Elvira's, La Vita e' Bella (spinach ravioli) La Pearla, Jungle Pizza, and Bandidos (has TSN sports).

As I mentioned, accommodations were perfect for our family. Communication with condo owner was via e-mail with easy payment transactions. On our next trip to Zihu, this condo will be our first choice!

Thank-You Jack!

I LOVED staying here -- both the condo and the location. The condo grounds were stunning and very well maintained, and the on-site security and grounds staff were incredibly friendly; I felt safe and secure the entire month I stayed here. The condo had everything we needed, and was very well maintained. Really appreciated the water filtration system installed, allowing me to drink tap water without worry. Jack checked in a few times over the month via email to make sure I was satisfied, serviced and everything about our stay was going well there. iPhone Home speaker too.

Location is great -- about a mile walk to town, about 1/4 mi down to Playa de Ropa, complete with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean from the condo. It is very hilly, which I happen to love. Great exercise. If you don't like walking the hill, there are many options from bus to frequent taxis (seemed like a taxi passed every 1-2 minutes).

Activity-wise -- the sunset cruise for $60 USD on the catamaran Picante was well worth it-- great captain, staff, small dinner and cocktails were great too. Not nearly as touristy of an activity as I expected. Make reservations to ensure they are running that night (they must at least have 30+ signed up). I also kayaked through mangroves near the airport, at Barra de Potosi. You can take the bus on the highway, tell the driver you are going to Barra de Potosi. they'll drop you on the side of the road you need to take where you'll catch a more informal "taxi" (back of pickup truck) to the end of the road (several miles). You can also take a cab for about $30-$40 USD. You'll find a 2x2 block village followed by 4-6 beach huts at the end of the road that are restaurants/kayak rental places. Most kayak rentals are run by Spanish speaking only owners/families. Rent from them. I did not kayak with a guide, but am a sea kayaker so know what I'm doing w equipment. I went with a local woman from Zihuatenejo that I met, who knew where to go. Stay along the shoreline, taking you past mangroves & eventually "entrances" into more mangroves (almost like a maze; there's really only one way in/out so you dont get lost). Unbelievable birds -- rosetta spoonbills, egrets, white pelicans, cranes, herons -- everywhere!!!! super cool. went twice. Other notable: Cooking School by Monica. $35 USD. Book in advance. Worth it. Walking to town, its about 1/6 mi past Hotel Irma, down the hill a bit on right. Sign out front at her restaurant, Patio Mexicana.
