Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I was born and raised in Eugene Oregon where I developed a love of nature and and deep appreciation for the outdoors, especially the mountains and the ocean! I first came to Zihuantanejo in 1980 while working for a world renowned artist who owned a second home here. I spent every winter in Zihuantanejo until one day in 2001, while exploring the endless ribbons of pristine beaches in my jeep, I discovered the quant village of La Barrita and the future home of Spyglass. I then spent the next seven years pouring my heart and soul into creating what I believe to be one of the most unique and enchanting villas anywhere to be found. Now it's time to share that experience! While my business responsibilities keep me in East Hampton New York much of the year, I return to Spyglass frequently to enjoy, as well as to oversee the ongoing improvements that make the Spyglass experience second to none!.
Why the Owner Chose Petatlán, Gro., Mexico:
I found this particular area to be the most beautiful place on all the Pacific Coast and fell in love with it at first sight!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Thanks to our unique geographical elevations, Spyglass is blessed with some of the most spectacular and dramatic views that the Pacific ocean has to offer. Those same unique geographical components also make our site extremely private! We are also blessed with an artisan well. So unlike many of our competitors, we have an endless supply of fresh water which allows us to maintain our beautiful gardens which are woven into every square inch of our property. Spyglass truly is, an enchanting place!
