Property description

Our gorgeous 3BR/3BA villa at Ensueño 10 hangs like a jewel above Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

C’est la vie. This is the life. Extraordinary villa at Ensueño 10 overlooking the bay, where French farmhouse meets Costa Grande villa. Ensueño means ‘daydream’ and this villa is a dream both day and night.

Our luxurious villa with a rock wall a foot thick (think castle) features spectacular vistas from every room. It is one of just six villas in the compound.

The al fresco living area with its soaring palapa roof is a great place to kick back with a cool drink and enjoy the amazing sunsets over Bahia Zihuatanejo. It features an onyx dining table for 6, a copper topped coffee table, ample couch and chair seating. The breeze flows off the bay though the Parota wood shutters to keep you comfortable and cool.

There is no shortage of lounging available. The terrace/deck has a ‘Bali Bed’ under one palapa, which is really a comfortable double outdoor bed for lying and watching the boats dancing on the bay or the stars flying by. We also have a comfy hammock on the Coco Vista bedroom terrace.

The kitchen features an 6-burner stove, granite counters, ample storage, double sink, microwave, Henckels knives, gourmet cooking pans, coffee maker & grinder, blender, toaster, orange juicer, mini-Cuisinart and numerous chef’s tools. We love to cook!

The dish ware is gorgeous blue and white hand-painted Talavera from Puebla and our glassware is Mexican hand-blown glass. The silverware is beautiful heavy stainless. We also supply you with a filtered water dispenser at the sink.

Each of two the upstairs bedrooms have king-sized beds (great mattresses!), 400+ Italian percale linens and air conditioning, terraces and views! The pillows are Pacific Coast feather and down pillows.

The two upstairs bedrooms have sliding doors with shutters and screens and bed canopies, so you can sleep with the sound of the waves lapping at your dreams. If you would rather, you can close the glass doors and use the AC (we almost never do).

The third detached bedroom suite just seven steps to the pool has a king bed, TV and DVD, mini fridge, coffee maker and bathroom. Its bathroom is nestled right into the bedrock of the hillside. It is extraordinary.

All bathrooms feature onyx sinks and appointments. The master bath has the most beautiful bathroom with an outdoor shower and a tropical garden and a view to the bay. We have luxury towels and hair dryers in each bathroom.

The casa features in-house WIFI, Satellite TV and DVD player in each upstairs bedroom, a house phone and a portable Bose docking station for your favorite tunes. We have our own washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. We supply beach towels.

You will be happy here.

Maximum occupancy is six adults plus one child or baby.

Note: Ensueño 10 is a smoke free environment. Smokers will be asked to leave to property to indulge in their habit.

NOT suitable for children under 12 years of age.

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. Our 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. Harriet has put together an up-to-date 75-page guide to the area to get you acquainted even before you arrive!
