Come to enjoy lovely and friendly Zihuatanejo ( Zihua for locals) and live in our fully furnished condo in a small, tranquil, 7-year-old gated garden condo complex.
This is a great place to relax; ideal location for tourists without a car, easy access to downtown Zihua with its bustling fish and produce market, shopping, restaurants and weekend open-air dance and music shows. The Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa airport is 30 minutes away. You have only a 3 minute level walk to the La Ropa beach, the best in this area, with even casual restaurants serving superb seafood. Most years, the water in this protected, picturesque bay is warm enough to swim in January. To catch a ride to Zihua with the little shuttle buses (50 cents) and taxis (about $3) is easy, they stop almost right outside the condo’s gate.
Description: This airy and friendly second floor condominium fully air-conditioned and brightly decorated comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 well-equipped kitchens with a large open plan living dining area plus a terrace overlooking the pool and tropical garden. There are lots of closet and cupboard space, also WiFi and cable TV but no phone. Rents range from $50 to $300 per night as it is available in its entirety or divided. As such you can choose between a studio sleeping two with kitchen and bath, queen bed and small terrace or a 2-bedroom unit sleeping four with the living/dining area, master bedroom with king bed, and 2nd bedroom with twin bunk beds, washer/dryer, outside terrace and separate entrances. The units have weekly maid service, linens and bath towels. Guests bring their own beach towels. ALL UNITS ARE ENTIRELY NON-SMOKING, EVEN ON THE TERRACE. No pets allowed.
The clean and extremely well-kept common areas include two separate pools to enjoy, a large lap pool for adults and a shallow kids pool, chaises and loungers for napping or reading, the shaded palapa, barbecue, etc. There is 24-hour security, on-site management and our English speaking property manager is on site to greet you with keys to the condo, a map of Zihua, and printed information. In the improbable case you encounter any difficulties with the condo during your stay, she's your neighbor.

We love the spaciousness, tranquility and high quality of the condo and it's setting. Most owners are very likeable Northamericans. The complete safety of the place allows us to relax and enjoy our vacation. We particularly love being so close to the water, a mere level block to La Ropa Playa, the most beautiful beach in Zihuatanejo and a sheltered bay, not an open ocean with undercurrents, ideal for swimming. Along the mile long stretch of white sand is the full range of water activities, as well as shaded hammocks and chaises for quiet reading. It is the typical traditional beach for family outings. No skyscraper hotels, no commercialized environment.
We love the fresh seafood at the many shanty beach shacks not forgetting the up-market restaurants with reasonable prices and dramatic sunset views.
Zihuatanejo attracts us because it still retains its traditional fishing activities offering a wonderful market, shopping and amenities. The people have lived there for generations and display a lively civic spirit that provides great comfort and safety for locals and foreigners alike.
LaCeiba in LaRopa is a beautifully designed condo development situated within walking distance to the beach. The development is close to the bus line and taxis are readily available. The suite that my family and I have rented for the past two years provided very spacious and comfortable accommodation. The kitchen was adequately appointed with a washer and dryer included. The support staff on site are all very cheerful and diligent. The presence of a security guard 24 hours a day and a gated entrance to the complex was very reassuring to us.
There is a real sense of community at La Ceiba which has enabled us to meet and socialize with other renters and some owners. Having a manager on site to assist with problems such as locating an English speaking doctor and orienting us to the wider community has been extremely helpful.
Without hesitation I would recommend this residence to anyone coming to Zihuatanejo for a holiday.
wildlife refuge, crocodiles in natural habitat, occasional fairs with amusement park, visits to delightful spots like the quaint town of Pazcuaro full of native art.
