Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just come back from a refreshingly breathe taking vacation with some friends. We rented a house in Cerro de Vigia in Zihuatenejo for a week. We hired a chef and daily house keepers. The chefs were an amazing duo with friendly personalities and cooked amazing authentic food just like we requested. The home itself was fully equiped in the kitchen and had everything you would want in a rental space except for shampoo and conditioner. They did however have Dove soap. The house was a fifteen minute walk to the beach and about 25 minutes to a second local's beach Located in a private community in a wildlife reserve, the house was quite private. The views were breath taking and I would recommend this place to anybody but to be weary of Scorpions that hide in dark, or moist places.

Girls get away, never wanted to leave

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I rented out Casa Espiritu February 2014 and have since been back three times. Zihuatanejo is such a hidden paradise and having the luxury of being in your own space, not in a resort, doing everything on your own terms/timing is what makes renting this specific spot so amazing.

The moment we got through the security gates into the enclosed neighborhood, we were in awe. We were truly pampered, the cleaning service was amazing, the recommended chef came one night, he prepped and cleaned after service, the food was phenomenal.

The beach is super close, same with going into town ( the beach and town are in the same place) , the views from the open living room were glorious at sunrise and sunset. <3 thank you and can't wait for our next annual trip

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our two grown children and their spouses. It was a perfect space for 3 couples. Was initially nervous about outdoor living but that melted away the moment we walked through the entry door. The view is truly breathtaking.

Felt very spoiled when we hired the recommended chef to come in to cook for us. Not only did he shop, prepare and serve us he also cleaned up after an amazing multi course meal. Price was very reasonable and we wished we had indulged earlier!!

Yolanda, the house keeper is also very pleasant and professional. Don't think we would hire the recommended masseuse again, but that was truly inconsequential.

We rented a vehicle while we were there as it is quite a hike to the beach, etc. The one security guard at the gate has the greatest welcoming smile, it's truly infectious.

The villa could not be more beautiful. Pool is just as amazing as it looks in the photos, no actually it's better! Would absolutely recommend this villa to anyone who wants to experience a wonderful getaway. Loved, loved, loved it.

PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Zihuat. and Casa Espiritu. It was EXACTLY like the photos online, only better! We walked in, greeted by this amazing view and after that it just got better and better. Everything was perfect - clean and comfortable and beautiful. We had EVERYTHING we needed including maid service and a fabulous kitchen. Swimming in the infinity pool, it felt like you were merging into the sky and the ocean...truly incredible, and very refreshing! We would recommend this place without any reservation to our friends and family and plan to go back again. Thank you for a PERFECT vacation!

Outstanding, unique and memorable

  • 5 of 5

Stunning and commanding view of the bay and area, in a safe (guarded compound) and beautifully maintained surrounding. Exquisite aesthetics and art throughout the house. Fabulously equipped kitchen. Infinity pool is heaven sent. Impeccably clean. Memorable sunsets. Cannot imagine a better spot in the entire region. Car is required, though beaches, shopping and dining are easily accessed. Peaceful, delightful. We've stayed twice, and hope to do so again.

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Espiritu was wonderful! Everyone was very helpful and the security fantastic. The great thing about the house was being able to get away from everything and at the same time just a short taxi ride to a night on the town.

Oh, and the fishing was awesome!! The wives couldn't leave the infinity pool during the day, and the guys couldn't stop catching giant sailfish.

Extraordinary Home and Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Casa Espiritu for a wonderful get together.

The home was stunning, the views and location exceptional. The staff was welcoming and discreet. We enjoyed walking to the long, sandy beach (less than 1/2 hour), then a quick taxi home after we had swam, drank margaritas and played!

Relaxing in the infinity pool, then cooking dinners together in the beautiful, open concept kitchen was a highlight of our stay. We loved the occasional chirp of a gecko in the kitchen, too.
