Make El Ranchito your home for your vacation and don't be surprised if you never want to leave. This stunning 4-Bedroom Villa boasts a panoramic view over Zihuatanejo Bay. Designed to take advantage of the spectacular setting, the home seamlessly flows from indoors to out. Wood, slate and palapa features create a warm and natural ambiance, with hand-made Mexican furnishings and artisan touches to complete the experience.
If you can tear yourself away from the pool and terrace wander 5 minutes down to Playa La Ropa. The calm water may entice you in as will the local restaurants to sample tasty seafood and regional fare. Or take a quick taxi ride downtown to discover shops, people watch, and maybe linger over a refreshing margarita.
Soak up the last of the day with a sunset show from the vantage point back home at El Ranchito. Relax in the comfort and luxury of your vacation villa surrounded by friends and family, letting the days blend together and mastering the art of relaxation.
El Ranchito literally translated means little ranch. While this is not a typical name for a beach villa, it is meant to conjure the sense of 'home on the ranch' or 'home sweet home'. The setting has been thoughtfully created to gather with friends and family in your own private retreat with every comfort considered.

Pool / Spa
A group of 4 of us stayed for one week at El Ranchito. From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out we were treated exceptionally well. Margarita prepared delicious breakfasts for us and cleaned up daily. She was so pleasant and wonderfully happy.
The zero edge pool was fabulous and that was where we spent most of our time. The amenities were perfect and we could not have been more pleased. Don’t waste your time looking for another property. This was perfect and the location could not have been better.
Thank you for for sharing your experience! As much as the house is lovely, I do think Margarita makes the difference - which is evident with so many comments about her breakfasts and her joyful nature. Hopefully you will have the opportunity to return to enjoy more of Zihuatanejo!
A Little Piece of Paradise in Zihua!
Joanne's house is beautiful, perfectly located and comfortable. She has thought of everything, including towels for the beach (as opposed to the pool) and sun hats for guests. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, as are the bathrooms. Marguerita is so sweet and charming and an amazing cook. We had a different delicious breakfast everyday, not to mention guacamole she would whip up for us. She keeps the house spotless, while Adolpho keeps the pool and property running smoothly. The house is a short walk to La Ropa and there are always cabs right outside to take you downtown. There is something about being able to spend the entire afternoon in the pool, with this amazing view! We will definitely return!
You are so kind, thank you for your thoughtful comments. I will pass those along to Margarita and Adolfo. They truly make a difference to enjoying your time at the casa. We look forward to hosting you again!
Beyond our expectations!!!!
This beautiful home was so much more than we ever imagined. The pictures do not do it justice! The 5 of us spent a week here and lacked for nothing! It is impeccably clean(ed) and maintained by Margarita and Adolfo. Kitchen, baths, bedrooms and living room have everything you could wish for in regards to amenities. Our breakfast prepared and served by Margarita each day was some of the best food we had in Zihua. The beach is just a 5 minute walk and taxis are readily available if you want to go to town or the grocery store. We like to walk so we walked to down town. Any questions or concerns were answered immediately by the owner Joanne. It was very hard to say goodbye to such a paradise!!! Thank you Joanne for sharing your amazing home!!!
Thank you! You are so thoughtful with your lovely comments. Margarita and Adolfo make such an impact with their care for the house and of course, we can never say enough about Margarita's breakfasts! Hopefully you can return to Zihua to enjoy the house again!
Beautiful house and views!!
The house was absolutely beautiful and the views were breathtaking! Looks even better than the pictures on the sight. Pool was wonderful and we spent a lot of time in it enjoying the magnificent view.
Everything in the house was beyond expectation! Spacious bedrooms each with its own wonderful roomy bathroom and very comfortable beds. We loved the one bedroom with the outside shower as well as the one by the pool. All the balconies were spacious with beautiful views. House was in a quiet location and was in a very safe area.
Playa la Ropa was literally a 5 minute walk. There were several great restaurant options on the beach, but our favorite dinner was the one Margarita made for us on our private patio! The town was a 5 minute cab ride, cabs were easy to get with a cab stand down the street. There was plenty to do if you want to venture into town or further down to Salididas, a little surf town or Tronconas.
Margarita and Aldolfo were wonderful! Friendly, helpful with any requests and quietly went about the house. A real treat to have them!
We have rented several houses on vacations and this was the whole families favorite! We will defiantly be back at this wonderful home again. Was a great vacation and a fabulous retreat! Highly recommend!
Thank you! We have just arrived to spend time at our home and are just as impressed. It's hard to take your eyes off the surrounding views, watching the birds and simply gazing out over the Bay of Zihuatanejo. Then breakfast appears and we're spoiled again by Margarita's cooking. It's a true delight to hear your praise of Zihuatanejo and your experience at El Ranchito!
Paradise in Mexico
We were 4 couples and this house was perfect for us! The house was beautiful and well thought out in design. Each bedroom has it's own private bath. The main living space was spacious and comfortable with indoor/outdoor living ~ and had a good sound system to listen to the CDs we purchased from the International Guitar Festival. The kitchen was well equipped. The pool was beautiful with views of sunset. The staff was great and Margarita (cook) was adorable, accommodating, and friendly! It was nice to have breakfast ready for us each morning before we started our day. I would highly recommend this house to anyone and we look forward to returning!
It's always such a pleasure to hear about the wonderful time spent in Zihuatanejo and the appreciation for our home. We too can't say enough about Margarita, she is a gem. Thank you so much for sharing your experience.
Just book this place!!!
Everything about this place is perfect - the view, the location...the that pool! The house is super clean, has a gourmet kitchen, private bedrooms with bathrooms, and that pool. The main living space is open and very comfortable. Margarita, the house keeper, is so lovely, and her breakfasts will keep you going all day. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach ( if you can stand to leave the pool) and a 5 minute taxi ride to town.. we can't wait to go back to this piece of paradise.
Thank you! We have many guests who are already booking their return for next year. This is so good for Zihuatanejo, it really is an ideal vacation spot.
