There is excellent cross-ventilation and every room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning available. Every bedroom has a king bed with 400-thread count linens and its own bathroom with rain showers & smooth pebble floors.
There is a lovely pool (large enough for laps) fed by a man-made waterfall, off-street parking & 24-hour security.
A truly magical spot in beautiful, peaceful Zihuatanejo.

Zihuatanejo is a charming fishing village at the base of the foothills of the Sierra Madres, that has become a highly desired tourist destination in the Mexican Riviera. The pace is still leisurely, but there is plenty to do, if that is your desire. Golf, tennis, biking, sailing, sport fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, horseback riding are but a sampling of the activities, although most are always drawn back to the beach. Casa del Arbol Cantando at Punta Marina Condominiums is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to Playa La Ropa, our most beautiful beach, and just around the corner from the treasured Playa Las Gatas, where there is snorkeling and scuba diving available.
This year, our paradise has hosted the Zihua Sailfest, the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival, the Food & WIne Festival in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo as well as colorful local carnivals & other festivities.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Sherwin & Peg are both semi-retired artists/designers from New York. Sherwin, an art director & graphic designer who came to Zihuatanejo in 2001. He first stayed on La Ropa, then moved over to Las Gatas, where he befriended local legend Owen Lee. Week after week passed and the original return home date was a distant memory. The playwright and poet Anna Della Marina Rego even wrote a play about the experience, called 'The Man Who Failed to Fly,' which has been performed in San Miguel de Allende. The following year, his future wife Peg (aka Margarita), at the time an interior designer and senior associate at a renowned architectural firm in New York, followed him down to make sure he came home, where she too fell in love with Zihua. (Who doesn't?) It is a magical place that resonates deep within the soul. Being semi-retired allows Peg & Sherwin more time in their paradise. They've met amazing folks here and continue to expand their circles and be creative. It's been a richly rewarding experience. And the weather!! That word 'Paradise' pops into everyone's vernacular. They love the fact that it is NOT a high rise resort or a Spring Break destination. You will too!
Why the Owner Chose Playa Las Gatas, Zihuatanejo, Gro., Mexico:
With gorgeous views of the Zihuatanejo Bay from the hill on the south end (their favorite) of Playa La Ropa, it is just a short walk from the condo down to the beach and restaurants, and a short cab ride into town ('El Centro') for 50-60 pesos (a little over $3 US). Beautiful, exotic flora & fauna to be found, with hummingbirds, herons, chachalakas, parrots, pelicans, geckos, iguanas, crocodiles (in safe confines) and many many other exotic birds. Lush tropical plants and flowers abound. Mangoes, bananas, papayas grow all around. Heaven!
