About The Owner

We are New Yorkers, UES! We love Z . We looked into other places in Mexico, but when we found La Ropa Beach with it's protected bay we fell in love. The other great thing about Z, is it is so much more than tourists. The town of Z is safe, flavorful, fun and vibrant. A real Mexican community that welcomes everyone.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Playa La Ropa

We love the town of Z and the immediate access to the wonderful Mexican culture it offers. Great inexpensive restaurants and yet a wordly sophistication, if so desired!

What makes this condo unique

Just being in the condo is great. The view does really have a pull and an impact on your mindset. It's transporting! The building was built in the mid 90's. The design of our home offers big rooms and high ceilings....the condo has a grand expansive feel...unlike new construction today. The building is PUNTA PENASCO

Outstanding View, but too many stairs.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for four days in between two other condo rentals. The Condo is comfortable and cleaned with outstanding views off the sitting room and upstairs deck. The sitting area is nicely decorated and the beds are both very comfortable. The kitchen is small with no storage for groceries, but not a big deal for us. Upstairs sun deck is wonderful to relax and read a book, morning coffee or enjoy an evening cocktail while watching the speculator sunsets.

The down fall is the stairs from the driveway to the condo. It is a workout for sure. If you have difficulty navigating stairs, this condo may not be for you. There is no 24 security on the property like the other two condos we stayed at. The driveway and surrounding grounds appear to be neglected with no outdoor lighting. It can be a bit scary and very dark waking back up to the condo at night.

All I can say is wow! This was a honeymoon trip for my wife and I and it was perfect. I could go on and on about the view from the patio outside the living area or the rooftop deck, but my words couldn't do it justice, seeing is believing! We arrived and were met by Eloisa with everything done and ready to go. Eloisa was awesome, great tips and advice for us.

The condo itself is beautiful! It had everything we needed and more. The grill on the rooftop deck was an added bonus! (It's hooked up to gas to the wall, so you don't have to worry about running out). The shower was spacious and plenty of hot water. Bedroom was perfect with a great view as well. Netflix is a great addition as well. The beds were comfortable and plenty of space throughout the entire bedroom. The kitchen has everything you will need for a lengthy stay, the owners really keep up with it.

I know I talked about the views, but this goes with the patios. We spent a majority of our time on the lower level patio and the rooftop deck. We would eat breakfast and dinner on either one. The rooftop deck was perfect for watching the sunset and having drinks! Very romantic.

It's easy access to the beach, about a 10 minute walk. Take a cab back though, the climb can be tiring after sitting at the beach all day. I won't lie, the climb is tough from the driveway to the front door, but I wouldn't change it at all. It's built on the side of a mountain, so what are you going to do? It leads to one of the best views I've ever seen!

I would overwhelmingly recommend this condo. We plan on coming back many times. The condo was great, Zihua is perfect, and the people are super friendly and helpful. The owner gives you a wealth of info before you even get there which came in very handy! Take my advice and book this now, you won't regret it!

This property is well stocked, well furnished, and very clean. It was a quiet oasis with stunning views, a refreshing pool and walking distance to beach(10 min) and town. (15-20) You do need to be fit for the trek up the hill and stairs! The only improvement would be a more comfortable bed. Thanks very much Deb and Eloise !!

Continues to Impress

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo. Everything was spotless and well-organized. Eloisa, the care-taker, is a jewel. Zihuatenejo is a lovely and friendly town. As others have noted, there is a climb from the beach to the condo. You can take a taxi part way up, and they are inexpensive, which is welcome during the heat of the day. This is a great place to escape the winter doldrums. The only things missing are a teapot and coffee grinder.

Everything you've read about this rental is true...I ran Marriott hotels for 35 years and I've rented condos around the world. I'm 70 and the walk to the beach (10 minutes and very walk-able with many food and beverage choices, though Patys was my favorite) though steep, wasn't bad at all (just go" slow and steady" as they say....)...and when you get home at night, the view is unreal! A few things I REALLY liked...

* the indoor shower is fantastic...plenty of hot water too..

* the world today needs good internet...and you will find it here...just don't try to run several devices at the same time..

* I like sleeping in a cool can get the bedroom temp ways's great!

* there's nothing you can't make in the has everything, and the laundry room has it all too!

* beds are very comfortable!

* Fans are EVERYWHERE so you'll be comfortable...

* Eloisa is fantastic if you need anything!!

Otherwise, read the instructions owner Deb sends you once you has all the details you'll need.Deb was a real pleasure to work with by the way... I loved the pool, meeting my neighbors, and oh yes, the upper top deck has a huge lounge chair...if that isn't the most comfortable chaise I've ever been in...well, trust me, it is!. Also on the deck, a great gas grill that is direct piped into the gas source...I'm used to finding a half empty gas canister this was a pleasure...

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this property. The property is sparkling clean and well kept. The view is awesome too. To stay here requires that all guests are in very good condition and have no trouble with stairs, and steep climbs. In our case we enjoyed the climb each day. Zihautenajo is the true Mexico experience. This is our sixth trip here.
