About Jim Howard
Jim and Pat are retired Canadians living in British Columbia. After searching for 'snowbird' properties in the Huatulco area, they fell in love with this condo and bought it. They have now spent their second winter enjoying their lovely private space within the beautiful Camino Real Zaashila beach resort. Pat and Jim are happy to share their piece of paradise when they cannot be there themselves.
Jim Howard purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Jim Howard chose Santa María Huatulco
This condo stood out from the other properties Jim and Pat reviewed because of its convenient location near the two Huatulco towns of Santa Cruz and La Crucecita while being far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy peace and quiet at home and within the beautiful resort property. Access to the resort's private beach and pools as well as the hotel amenities like daily maid service, room service, restaurants and bars, was a big attraction.
What makes this Condo unique
The Camino Real Zaashila resort is a special place with its Mediterranean architecture, lush grounds, and beautiful setting on its own beach on Tangolunda Bay. The condo nests delightfully within this distinctive environment. The condo itself is spacious and attractive with partial sea views. The private plunge pool is a special feature, big enough to frolic in while cooling off. The nested sliding doors create a wide opening between the living room and the patio/pool, merging indoor and outdoor living.

Definitely coming back
This condo was just perfect, it really much felt like home and i cant wait to return next year or in two to this same place, thankyou Jim and Pat for having us in your lovely condo, as well as adding Wifi to the condo and smart tv with Netflix, I strongly recommend anyone who is not yet convinced of this place to just go ahead and rent it, you will feel like home and the pool is a great way to refresh yourself after the high and humid temperatures of Huatulco, not once during the week did we go down to the hotel pool since the one in the condo is better and colder.
Jim and Pat have a beautiful redecorated and updated condo. Everything that we needed was there for our use. The grounds of the Camino Real zashilla are very beautiful. We used the bell boy driven golf cart several times to get up the driveway after a long hard day at the gorgeous beach. Thanks Jim and Pat for allowing us to rent your unit. You were wonderful to work with.
We continue to appreciate the very positive reviews, such as this one, that we receive for this property. We are always pleased to have such high quality renters such as Dotty G. and will strive to maintain the standards that attract their patronage. Thank you!
Jim and Pat
Beautiful facility and close to all!
I will definitely return. The staff is very attentive and the food is incredible. The benefit of being in a condo with ell the amenities of a hotel, including tennis court,swimming pools, restaurants and a bar.
Once again, we are pleased to receive another five-star review! We, along with the Camino Real staff, strive to make the experience of our rental guests as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.

Clean, practical, comfortable place
If are looking for a nothing to worry about place, this is it! The hotel service was great, helping as needed.
The condo is decorated with taste and has all the things you may need, including the kitchen equipment if you’d like to cook a meal!!
We recommended it and Jim is great guy!
The view from the unit was not as expected.
The plunge pool was very cold, making our use of it limited. Front desk staff was not well informed, nor very helpful.
After an unbroken string of five-star reviews, we were disappointed to see this less than perfect one. The renters did not contact us directly with any of their concerns.
For the record, the condo is advertised as having a "partial ocean view." In a climate where the temperature hovers around 30C (85F) or more year round, pools are not heated in Huatulco. Sometimes the plunge pool water gets a little chilly after the staff top it up with fresh water each day. The Camino Real staff have regularly received very positive comments about their helpfulness and friendliness from previous renters, so we are surprised by the remarks about the front desk staff. However, we will pass these concerns on to the condo manager.
Condo is part of a beautiful beachfront hotel property (Camino Real Zaashila) with some services available nearby with easy taxi access to the two towns La Crucecita and Santa Cruz.
