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

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.

Fabulous Punta Punesco

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks just after Christmas at this great condo. We had breakfast each day at the condo. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we required. Each day we walked down to the beach and usually had lunch there. At the end of the day we hiked back to the condo. It was a big climb but it was good for us. We are in our early seventies. Occasionally we took a taxi to the top parking lot just 50 pesos. We usually had supper at the condo and really enjoyed the upper deck for bar b queing. Then we sat in the comfortable chairs on the balcony enjoying the spectacular panoramic view. We never get tired of watching the ocean from that location. On New Years Eve our kids and grandkids came for dinner. They thought our place was very well appointed and equipped, not to mention the lovely Mexican decor. We used the upper deck to cook steaks then sat on the balcony to enjoy our food and the view. Later that evening we were able to enjoy the spectacular fireworks from a number of places on the beach. Halfway through our stay a cleaning service came. She was excellent. At the end Eloisa came with a helper to assist with our bags to the parking lot. She negotiated the taxi to the airport--very fair price. Eloisa is an excellent manager and responded quickly and efficiently to any of our inquiries. We had a great vacation at Punta Penasco and would like to return in the near future.

My friend and I spent a week in Zihuatanejo and stayed at Punta Punasco. It was fantastic. We thought of it as a piece of heaven. It is bright and clean and had plenty of space for two people. Because it is perched up in the heights above the beach it truly gave us a feeling of peace and awe and beauty; it is true to the photos. It has a stunning panoramic view of the whole area, so we spent quite a bit of the time sitting on the balcony or in the living room. It was also very quiet which was a big plus for us. We did a lot of things on our trip and staying at Deb's condo was a big part of our enjoyment during our vacation.

Deb was great and easy to work with. Eloisa, the host/manager, was very warm and friendly.

As other guests have stated one does have to be up for the climb up to the condo. We are in our 50s in pretty good shape, so it was fine for us and well worth it.

It is close to everything. We walked to the beach or into town. We also took cabs and there's a bus; it's all easy.

I will recommend it.

Everything was excellent! Thank you, the view is fantastic and we enjoyed every part of our vacation in Zihuatanejo.The condo is perfect! For the weather, the last 2 days was cloudy, rain and shower, but nothing extreme! Today the sun is back and we enjoyed our last day in Las Gatos. Thank you, Jacinthe et Richard
