About the property

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.

Beyond our expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Owner's Response: 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!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

Just book this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

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!

The very best Casa.

  • 5 of 5

El Ranchito was amazing from the minute we arrived to the end of our 7 night stay. The house and pool are beautiful. Everything from the entrance to the bedrooms and the pool couldn't have been better in any way.

We had eight people and everyone had the same opinion. Margareta was outstanding with her breakfasts, snacks and her over all hospitality. She was personable, helpful and so interactive with each of us, even though she doesn't speak English. She looked after everything we requested. Adolfo was quiet and so responsive to every wish we had. He kept the property looking spectacular. The property is so well situated that we were able to walk to La Ropa Beach in 5 minutes and walk into Zihua in 15 minutes. The view from any place in the house is spectacular but especially from the Infinity Pool area.

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you mentioned watching the birds from the terrace and the turtle release on La Ropa beach. These are some of the beautiful experiences that make Zihuatanejo such a special place. Your thoughtful words are greatly appreciated.
