Property description

Step back into the Mexico of the '60s ‘70s and 80’s with a visit to the quaint community of Zipolite. Although you’ll have all the comforts of home in this beautiful condo on the waterfront, you’ll experience the ambience of rural Mexican life just a half hours drive away from the international airport in Huatulco.

Feel the white sand between your toes as you walk the 2 km beach. Watch fishermen cast out their nets and buy fish that are still wriggling on the beach before you. See flocks of pelicans circling in feeding patterns just meters from shore. Stop anywhere along the beach for a cold drink or cervesa and order up the meal of the day. Be lulled by the sound of the constant ebb and flow of the surf and the calling of the seabirds.

This condo is airconditioned with units in the living room, and bedrooms but with a constant temperature of around 30 C during the day and 20 C at night, it is certainly not a necessity. Each room has a fan, and there is a constant breeze coming through the unit from the ocean.

The unit is bright and cheery, with a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, stove, blender, toaster oven, pots, pans, and utensils) for those who plan on preparing their own meals. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, and one with a king-sized bed. There is a safe in your room and lots of closet space for your clothing. The sofa in the living room is comfortable and wide, and can be utilized for sleeping extra people if necessary.

You have a spacious balcony with a view of the sunrise in the morning, and the sunset in the evening. Picture yourself seated in a bar stool and eating your meals with a backdrop of a sandy beach and the Pacific Ocean.

If you’re feeling hot after a walk on the beach, play in the ocean waves, or jump into the infinity pool for a refreshing swim. You can either tan on the beach or lay next to the pool. The beach in Zipolite is one of the few in Mexico where clothing is optional.

There are more than 40 restaurants in the community that serve a wide variety of foods from high cuisine to burgers. Most restaurants are traditional Mexican but there are lots of Italian restaurants and one with Indian cuisine. The seafood is great and you can find lots of places that serve burgers, fries, and pizza. The nightlife is good with a disco and bars that are open till the wee hours. Crafters line the street in the evenings, with everything from handmade clothing to jewellery for sale.

You can often see whales passing from the balcony, but there are whale watching tours for those who like the close-up view. There are also white water rafting tours, snorkelling tours, tours into the mountains for viewing coffee plantation and high mountain waterfalls. Ziploite is a bird watcher’s paradise. The fishing is fantastic, and one can get guides at either Peurto Angel (2 kms away) or San Agustinillo (2 km in the other direction). The largest turtle sanctuary and museum in Mexico is in Mazunte (3 km from Zipolite), and there is an alligator reserve in Ventanilla (8-10 km to the west). Taxi service is good and the fairs are very reasonable.

Owner info

About the owner: Dr. David Perrin practised veterinary medicine in the Kootenay region of British Columbia for 26 years. He retired in 1999 from full time practice and moved to Hawaii for a year where he penned his first collection of stories, Dont Turn Your Back in the Barn.. Over the next ten years, he wrote five best-selling volumes of veterinary adventures and another volume called Keep Sweet…Children of Polygamy, that he wrote with Deb Palmer about her childhood experiences in the fundamentalist LDS community of Bountiful. Keep Sweet won the Vancity Prize for the best BC book on women’s issues for 2005. Dave Perrin was raised in a small community near Trail and attended Selkirk College before moving on to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He earned his degree as Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. He served on the council of the B.C. Veterinary Medicine Association for seven years and was one of the founding members of the Associated Veterinary Purchasing Company that distributes drugs and equipment to veterinarians in the province. In his early years of practice, he wrote scientific articles for the Canadian Veterinary Journal. One of the articles dealt with an outbreak of Bacillus cereus mastitis, a crisis that he recounts in his third book, Where Does It Hurt? He remains in the log home he built in Lister, British Columbia. He’s a devoted father to four children.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro Pochutla, Oax., Mexico:
The first year I came to the Zipolite, I fell in love with the community. The next year I started looking on the mountainside for a property that I could afford, with the idea of building something my family could use. No matter where I looked, the question I asked myself was always the same, "if I build here, how long a walk will it be to the beach?" After returning four years in a row, I found a piece of property that was ocean front, but more expensive than I could afford at the moment. After mentioning it to a few friends from my hometown in Creston, BC, a group of us purchased the property and started designing. 18 investors planned the units and worked together to build them.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Not only is the condo directly on the beach, it’s centrally located in the town of Zipolite, close to all the amenities you’ll be requiring. Restaurants and stores for groceries and fresh produce are all within a few hundred meters of the Monarca building. If you’re looking for an affordable place to relax in a peaceful setting, this is it!
