Playa La Ropa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

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.

*4 spacious bedrooms each with a king-size bed and private bathroom. There is one bedroom on the main floor, two on the second floor and one on the third floor. Soak in the spectacular view from every room.

From the moment you walk through the gate; El Ranchito takes your breath away. It is a wonderfully appointed home, with all the amenities. You never tire of the view; and we loved watching and discovering all the different, colourful birds that came to the nearby trees. Always something new to see! The pool transcends you to a very special place. A noted favourite of mine would have to be the splendid outdoor shower! Margarita and Adolfo were absolutely amazing; quietly going about make your stay perfect! We spent a lot of time at La Ropa beach where we got to help release baby turtles and experience turtles laying their eggs. Truly remarkable. Highly Recommended!

The Amazing El Ranchito

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot adequately describe how incredible this property is. The location, the condition, the helpful staff, everything was beyond expectation. From sun up to sun down El Ranchito did not disappoint. Margarita and Adolfo are beautiful people and a joy to be around. Margarita cooks an amazing breakfast. The pool was relaxing and the views are breathtaking. Take a quick walk to La Playa Ropa if you feel the need to stretch your legs and take in some scenery. I highly recommend this house!!!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay in this absolutely gorgeous property. I have stayed in many vacation properties all over the world and this was definitely one of my favourites. The property is absolute immaculate and we fell in love with the caretaker Margarita who became part of our family. The meals she cooked us were absolutely delicious and she took such good care of us. The views are breathtaking and we spent many nights sitting out on the pool deck. The infinity pool has a built in table and was a feature we used often. We stayed at the house with several couples and one of the best things about this property is that each couple has their own private space and there is also a large communal living area. The location is perfect as it is a quick walk to the Playa La Ropa and many restaurants. The kitchen is also really well equipped with we cooked several dinners at the house. I would highly recommend this property and can't wait to visit again soon. Thank you so much for making our vacation one we will never forget. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime!!

Beautiful luxury home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at this luxury Home and the view's from literally every room. The staff friendly and helpful especially the house keeper and cook (Margarita)which prepared an amazing breakfast poolside every morning for our gang. We felt very safe in Zihuatanejo and would highly recommend. The beach is minutes away with a laid back atmosphere and several restaurants to choose from, Patty's being our favorite. The board walk in Zihua has all sorts of shopping and restaurants and is a nice walk from the house, but taxis are always available also. Went fishing twice and had tuna steaks for dinner on the barbie..We would definitely make this our destination again!! Thanks again to the staff and Owners of this beautiful home for making our vacation one to always remember.

Gorgeous house and incredibly friendly staff

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Every room was spacious and clean and had incredible views! The main pool deck was gorgeous and had fantastic views. I felt very safe there and it had a really convenient location for us (near Playa la Ropa). It was also really easy to catch a cab right outside the door (as the taxi rank was just down the road). Margarita (housekeeper and cook) was not only an amazing cook but she kept the place spotless. The house was large enough to accommodate our whole group and really added to the quality of our vacation! I would definitely stay here again!!

Amazing home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! The house is incredible, the view’s fantastic. The Staff amazing – we loved having breakfast poolside, the food was the best we had in Zihua… a big thank you to the chef. Would recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a great vacation in Zihua with home comforts, there are 4 master suites each with it's own bathroom, all have views over La Ropa bay., an amazing infinity pool also overlooking the bay, easy walk to the beach and a short taxi ride to town (we walked a few times).

Thank you so much for a fantastic vacation… hope to come back soon.
