What makes this Condo unique
I believe in the sensory experience, and for this reason the villa is a delight to the senses: to the eyes, ears and to the touch. The acid-washed red Puebla marble floors under your bare feet, the touch of flamed granite counters, the smooth onyx bathrooms and a view terrace that spans the width of the condo. Ensueño 10 has a lovely green salt-water pool overlooking the bay. The pool area features ample lounge chairs and a fiesta-sized shaded palapa (palm frond roof) with a barbecue and seating. There is parking for your rental car if you chose to have one.A funicular ascends the hillside to the front door. The air-conditioned gym is outfitted with treadmill, elliptical and free weights. My mission is to help folks learn to love Zihuatanejo and its surrounding areas as much as we do and to give them the best vacation possible. I have put together an up-to-date 75-page guide to the area to get you acquainted even before you arrive! Come enjoy the joy that is Ensueño 10! * the third bedroom suite is available for an additional charge.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
No less than 5 Stars! We could not think of one thing that was not fantastic about the condo or the property in total.
Linda, Augustine and Anna are so very nice and helpful from the moment we arrived until we sadly departed.
Thanks to all for a wonderful stay in a beautiful home.
Zihua is a special town full of good times.
Thank you! Please come stay again. I love welcoming special people into my special home.
This place is STUNNING. The pictures don't even do it justice. I came with my best friend and my mother for a week. The complex has 5 condos but we had the whole place to ourselves. As wonderful as Playa La Ropa and downtown Zihua are, we spent most of our time lounging around on the porch and by the pool because it was too nice to leave. Great ocean breezes, terrific amenities, warm & welcoming staff. Nearby restaurants were awesome. Do not pass this place up!
Dear Abby K-
STUNNING! I am honored that you think so, too, because I have decorated and maintained my casa in paradise with such loving care to detail. I am grateful when my guests notice and enjoy the hospitality. For the record, there are six casas in our complex. No one has anyone overhead; most of the casas (including mine) share only one wall. All of them have high palapa ceilings. The complex is like the hanging gardens of Babylon with luscious flowering gardens throughout, waterfalls and fountains. It is the ultimate paradise, of indoor /outdoor living. Do not book here if you want to glass yourself in from the experience of the tropics; however, all the bedrooms can be closed at night. I sleep with wide open doors in the dry season and only the screen in the wet season, but some folks like to close the glass doors and wood shutters and run the AC. And lucky you, that you had the complex all to yourself! That can sometimes be a gift of coming in the green season. Please join us again!
Kind regards, Harriet
Our family of 4 had an absolutely amazing stay at the condo. This place has absolutely everything we needed for our vacation. Such a great location situated up the hill with an incredible view of the bay. We enjoyed all of the amenities the condo offered and the activities a short walk to La Ropa. Lynda and the staff were very helpful and responsive. I would return to this condo and Zihua in a heartbeat!
Thank you! I know that we would love to have you back in a heartbeat! I try to have all the comforts that I enjoy at home: beautiful handmade plates and glassware, good knives, pots and pan and silverware, as well as nice linens and the BEST Pacific Coast feather pillows that I bring down from California with me. I love the location and the fact that I can see the waves break on the beach and let the sound lull me to sleep at night.We are lucky to have our fantastic team working here as well.
Muy bonita, C'est la Vie!
Recently, my husband and I wanted/needed to escape from months of "grey Oregon sunshine" and chose to spend a week in Zihuatanejo to fulfill our dreams. We chose to book our stay at "C'est la Vie, Casa 2" and found the condo was "perfectamente"! Beautifully appointed with views even more spectacular than the photos show, we really "lucked out" in choosing Harriet's condo, for sure.
Thank you Deb!I know you got cut off before you finished writing!
Here is what you said to me:
We LOVED everything about Zihua... our stay in your home, meeting Lynda, Yolanda, Augustin…La Ropa, El Centro, the side trips we went on, the delicious food we ate, etc. it is important to give deserved praise for the whole experience that you provide travelers like Rick and me to enjoy.
best of everything,
Absolutely amazing time! Everything was wonderful! Harriet and Lynda were so helpful and everything was perfect! Such a wonderful vacation! The casa has everything you need! Can’t wait to come back!
Dear Hannah! Oh, my! You made me laugh! Five exclamation points! What a treat!
There. Now, I've done it, too. What a sweet, sweet, heartfelt review. I knew from the first contact that you would be a delightful guest.
So please, please come back again soon!
Stunning Views Great Location
The location was amazing and the people so friendly we had a great experience and would definitely come back. Our accommodations were beautiful and very clean and quiet complex. We loved the views with Sunsets and Oceanview stunning.
Thank you for being such a great guest. I also adore our quiet street above La Ropa beach. I take great pride in how beautifully appointed and decorated C'est la Vie is. I don't hide the 'good stuff' away! And I too, love to enjoy the sunset view over the bay from my terrace! in Ensueño 10, we have the best boutique complex (six condos!) around.
Thanks, and please return to paradise soon,
