About Aharon or Jeannine Chen

I am a fisherman at heart. I visited Zihuatanejo on a fishing trip for business for the fist time in 1983. I feel in love with the horseshoe bay. I came back many times over the years before I took on my next adventure...building my dream villas.

Aharon or Jeannine Chen purchased this villa in 2002

Why Aharon or Jeannine Chen chose Zihuatanejo

Villa Bahia was my first villa. I met Enrique Zozaya and that was the beginning of what has turned out to be a long friendship. We spent many days and nights designing Villa Bahia. Some people thought we were crazy to build a villa in the middle of nowhere. But over time the area has grown, and now I have a few neighbors.

What makes this villa unique

The layout of the rooms, the type of inlays in the flooring, doors, position on the lot. Every detail was planned and drawn out, sometimes on napkins and scrapes of papers here and there along the way. In the end what was created was a villa that is truly a work of living art. The villa moves with the breeze, the views are majestic and the spaces relaxing.

Palma Real Golf Course:

Ranked as one of Mexico’s finest golf courses, this 18-hole course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and has spectacular scenery and natural wildlife.

Marina Golf Course

The Marina Golf Course in Ixtapa was designed by Robert Von Hagge, renowned golf course designer. This exclusive 18 hole, par 72 course is 6,793 yards long and is situated on 55 hectars of land characterized by attractive landscaping and natural canals requiring 12 bridges.

La Playa Principal, which is the public beach located in front of the town. The municipal pier is located at one end. The local fisherman beach their skiffs here during the day. They fish at night and in the morning display and sell their catch to the local market and restaurants.

Playa La Madera “Wood Beach” gets it’s name from the Spanish colony days when it was the shipping point for mahogany, oak, pine and cedar wood cut from the local forests. This beach is reached by walking along a narrow, seaside trail which you can pick up on the other side of the Museo Arquelógico.

Playa La Ropa is the longest beach in the area. In the 16th century a Spanish galleon called the Nao made the mistake of entering the Bay, which was then a den for British buccaneers. The pirates fired on the galleon without even having to pull up anchor and the galleon was scuttled. It’s cargo of Chinese silk clothing washed up all over the beach, which is how “Clothes Beach” got its name. To reach this beach it is easiest to take bus from downtown Zihuatanejo.

Playa de Las Gatas, which is at the extreme Southern end of the Bay, is accessible by water taxi from the Municipal Pier or a footpath along the rocky coast from La Ropa. There is no road. According to local legend a Tarascan king named Iréhpan and his family used this beach as a Winter vacation retreat. An invasion of man-eating sharks in the Bay prevented his family from swimming. So Iréhpan ordered his slaves to build a stone breakwater off of the beach to keep the sharks out. Today this breakwater is overgrown with coral and offers the finest snorkeling and diving in the area. This beach gets it’s name from a species of harmless, whiskery nurse sharks that used to be common in the area. Open air fresh seafood restaurants line the beach and lounge chairs are available for rent.

Fantastic Views ,Excellent Accomadations

  • 5 of 5

Quintessential Zihuatanejo. Very Clean and the staff is excellent! We had the opportunity to meet the owners during our stay, and they went out of their way to welcome us. Close to town, yet each villa has a sense of privacy and amazing views. This is modern Mexico with out all of the commercialization. It is our new favorite destination . We highly recommend this destination and these Villas.

This place exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin, this was a vacation for the books. Hearing from every media outlet that Mexico was not safe I was a little skeptic planning a trip to Mexico, but boy was I wrong. From arriving to the quaint little airport to heading back to the states everything was perfect. Upon arrival Carlos was waiting for us right when we arrived, he spoke perfect English and knew everyone at the airport. Before I knew it we were loaded up and on our way to the villa. The villa was located in a private neighborhood that was well kept and gated. They are very well maintained and extremely clean. We were greeted with fresh guacamole and margaritas which were to die for! The villa is all open with spectacular views every where you look. Each day we would wake up to a private chef preparing our delicious breakfast along with a cleaned room and fresh towels. Carlos was there for any and all of our needs. We had Carlos take us to fun places,which he knew everyone,so it was if we had the royal treatment everywhere. When we were ready to go he was standing by to take us. This was very convenient in that we know no Spanish, getting around was a breeze. The next day we wanted to go fishing, once again Carlos was there to set it all up for us. It was a blast and we caught fish right off the bat. After fishing we were too tired to go out to eat so Carlos and the private chef filleted the fish and fried it up with local recipes. It was hands down some of the best food I have ever had. We sat out side on some of the most comfortable furniture and ate overlooking the Pacific Ocean at sunset. It couldn't get much better than that. The views from the villa are breath taking and you could not find anything more private than this. The next day Carlos took us into town to go shopping and to some little hole in the wall restaurants that were once again amazing. We then headed back to the villa to find a fresh room, towels and our laundry done! We spent the rest of the day in the pool just relaxing. I work for a 5 star resort that specializes in customer service and this place blew me out of the water. I am already in the process of booking another trip to this exact villa. The people who rent it out are extremely helpful and informative. I emailed multiple times asking questions and I got a quick reply without feeling like I was a bother. I highly recommend this place for couples looking for a romantic get away as well as families with kids or a group of adults. AbsolutelyAmazing!!
