About Elsa Sale

Why Elsa Sale chose Guerrero

After cruising the Mexican Riviera for years, seeking the perfect spot to build our home, we arrived in Zihuatanejo Bay, and instantly knew that we had found it!

What makes this villa unique

It is inside a large gated development with a handful of other custom-built homes, with maximum 24/7 security and privacy. Our home faces the beautiful mountains beyond the bay, daily spectacular sunrise views, early fishing boat traffic, as well as front-row seating for enjoying nature's never ending beauty and sounds.

Gorgeous MonteCristo Private Estate "El Conde"

  • 5 of 5

This is probably one of the nicest homes I've ever stayed in. The house is almost like a maze, it's so grandiose and spacious, and not to mention gorgeous. The views, the pool, the staff, the movie room, everything is absolutely stunning. My party and I literally stayed in the pool the whole time looking out into the crystal blue water. (Did I mention they have a 3 tiered infinity pool ?!?!?) You are far enough away from all the tourists' (thank goodness). The palapa, the grand entrance, the kitchen, the grounds, and the VIEWS are to die for. I would recommend renting a yacht one day, they'll pick you up in front of the house by the private beach. Every single attention to detail was spot on. The owner, Elsa, is so so nice and extremely helpful with any and all questions. Probably one of my favorite trips in my life. We would come back in a heart beat....Highly Recommend

Casa el Conde

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa el Conde was beyond our expectations! The photo on the website do not do it justice. The property is beautifully appointed with breath-taking views! Elsa Sale and the staff made our stay a once in a lifetime event. Every request was met and exceeded. Staff was very friendly, attentive and professional. We hired the private chef and a driver during our stay which made our time even more incredible. It was so difficult to leave. We can not wait to go back. We would HIGHLY recommend this property to all. We had friends with us that speak Spanish which is a plus. Thank you Chuck and Elsa for sharing your beautiful home with us!

The most amazing time at Casa El Conde!

  • 5 of 5

Just as the other reviewers have stated...the pictures are beautiful, but once you are almost speechless! It's AMAZING!

Driving from the airport, you immediately fall in love with Zihua. It's quaint and quiet, and the day markets are easy-going and each booth has something just a little bit different. We didn't even venture into Xtapa because we loved the vibe of the fishing town so much. Going through the entrance of Casa El Conde is a breathtaking experience. It was a lot of, "This isn't real," and then lots of giggling :) We walked down the stairs and were greeted with the beautiful ladies that treated us like royalty our entire visit. Mama, Gladis, Laura, and Daisy - they are beautiful human beings! Vladi picked us up from the airport, gave us rides into town for quick store trips, and helped with anything and everything we needed around the house. Mama is a sweet soul and you can taste it in her cooking. Gladis, Laura, and couldn't turn around without one of them pointing you to what you needed, grabbing you a cup of tea, making you a drink, quietly cleaning up after you. They were a wonderful staff! As for the actual house, it is inviting yet spectacular. Almost the entire house (aside from the bedrooms, some bathrooms, and the tv room) is outside in the perfect weather and beautiful scenery. The outdoor common area is super comfortable and has an abundance of room for hanging out all together or getting some alone time watching the birds and fishermen with the binoculars or peacefully reading a book. The sunrises from this house are ridiculous. We did that almost every morning and we basically watched the view from the house for HOURS a day! The bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated, the beds are comfy, and the outdoor showers were amazing.

Chuck and Elsa were amazing hosts! They took care of any concern we had leading up to our visit and on our visit, quickly and with generousity.

We will definitely be back!!

Spectacular Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was remarkable!

Even though the photos do show the drama of its setting, all of our breathes were taken away when we walked through the front gate. This property is stunning! The views are awesome and panoramic. Beautiful and creative architecture---the three tiered pool & spa, the open living/dining/bar/kitchen palapa pavilion, all bedroom suites were large w/ private lounging decks and outdoor showers, separate media room, open air sitting areas, etc. etc. All of this is done in wonderful African artifacts and antiques (very fitting in this setting) from the owners travels and bold Mexican craftsmanship. It is evident the owners take great pride in their home.

The staff is very warm and accommodating. Good thing though one of us speaks Spanish fairly well as communication would have been more difficult. All of them were earnest and eager to please so it was hard to fault them. We hired a cook for our stay and opted to eat more meals in vs. going out to eat. How could we leave such a stunning environment! And the food prepared was delicious especially the Mexican dishes.

The owner Elsa Sale was excellent to work with, very kind and responsive to our questions. It's amazing that they rent this home to guests as it is quite evident that alot of hard work, love, caring and considerable expense went into this dream of a property.

We loved it!

Destination Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best accommodation we have ever rented through VRBO. We were a family of eight and stayed over the Christmas/New Year vacation for 10 days. Our experience was absolutely fantastic. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating in making sure our stay was perfect. We truly think we stayed in one of the prettiest homes Zihutanego. It surpassed our expectations. Immediately upon arrival we called the owners to say we had a problem ... we didn't ever want to leave. Everyday we were hypnotized by the beauty of the bay and the boat traffic. The decor of the house was decorated to perfection - the owners clearly have taken great pride in every detail and maintain it immaculately. We were surprised to find flat screen TVs in every room, including a huge outdoor TV, and the most comfortable mattress and linens we've ever slept on! They were very attentive to our pre trip planning and every detail was taken care of, from arranging massages to gourmet meals. There was a staff of four that could not have been nicer, helping with shopping, transportation and anything else we could ask for. We would highly recommend Casa El Conde.

Couldn't ask for more!

A driver, a personal cook, and a staff to take care of all the rest made this trip even more exquisite than we could have imagined. Casa El Conde is breathtaking and designed to perfection. You can't go wrong here!
