Property description

Solana is located hillside with stunning views of the Zihuatanejo bay, Playa La Ropa and Playa Las Gatas. It is operated as a boutique bed and breakfast as well as a private luxury villa rental. Solana accommodates up to 16 guests in 7 suites each with their own private bath facilities and private entrances. Solana is set on a large half acre property with over 6,000 s.f. living space. Solana is a collection of three buildings with generous garden space providing each guest with the ultimate in privacy and tranquility. It is perfect for those seeking a place for family reunions, wedding parties or a getaway with friends!

Solana is a brand new property with a contemporary, clean design, luxury touches such as fine linens, beautiful Mexican art, custom furniture and a seamless connection between guest suites and the lush tropical outdoors. Solana was planned with clean lines and a sophisticated color palette to create a modern tropical mexican design.

If all suites at Solana are rented by one party access to the kitchen facilities is permitted. For full villa rentals breakfast is not included and the group must purchase their own groceries. A grocery service is available for an additional fee. The villa and grounds are staffed by a maid and private chef. The owners live on site in a separate apartment and are available to assist with any concierge services needed.

Solana has an infinity pool, sundeck and palapa covered dining & bar area all with spectacular views of the bay. The entire property at Solana has wifi internet access but you might just forget to check in after a day or two of hammock-naps, sunset happy hours and massages on the beach.

Solana is located less than a 5 minute taxi ride to La Ropa beach, 10 minutes to downtown Zihuatanejo. Taxi´s are easily arranged. Our location is far enough away to enjoy the serenity of the tropical pacific coast but close enough to easily access the restaurants and nightlife of Z.

Solana is comprised of 2 upper-level bay-view Grand Suites, 4 bay-view Jr Suites and 1 garden view room.

Azulillo and Cocos are the Grand Suites, each equipped with a king-sized bed as well as a daybed-style sofa to accommodate up to 3 guests. Each suite has a large private terrace with lounge chairs, hammock and a panoramic view of our gorgeous bay. The private bathroom has a spacious outdoor shower area surrounded by beautiful native plants for added privacy. Ceiling fans provide a blissful breeze thanks to the vaulted ceilings and open plan design but there is also air conditioning for your personal comfort. Additional amenities include ample closet space, a desk area and a personal safe.

The four bay-view Jr Suites are named Ceiba, Ciruelo, Pinzán and Panicua. Each has a queen-sized bed and can accommodate 2 guests. The Jr Suites each have a private terrace with a hammock & adirondack style chairs. The private bathroom has a partially-open air shower with lush vegetation bringing the wonderful jungle hillside right to you. There are both ceiling fans and an air conditioner for your optimal comfort. Additional amenities include a built-in love seat, a small desk and a personal safe.

Nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Zihuatanejo is on a beautiful stretch of Mexican coastline called “La Costa Grande” — “The Great Coast” — The surrounding mountains and the gorgeous protected Zihuatanejo Bay foster a sense of idyllic seclusion as this picturesque fishing village welcomes tourists from all over the world.

As Zihuatanejo has grown, an interesting symbiosis between modern convenience and cultural traditions has emerged. We have grocery stores, coffee shops, fine gourmet dining and broadband internet access but we also still have a central open-air market, wandering roosters, door-to-door vendors of freshly baked goods and Sunday gatherings in the town square for “family night” events, political speeches, markets, street food and cultural performances.

luxury, culture, beaches, shopping, cuisine, recreational activities and more.

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is the site of several major sporting events including a international competition-level triathlon, several global surfing competitions & exhibitions, golfing benefits and an annual sailfish tournament. We are also home to the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival which brings together guitarists from all over the world the first week of March.

Solana overlooks Playa las Gatas, an idyllic stretch of soft sand that is accessed via a rocky path or by panga boats from the town pier. There are a handful of seafood restaurants that serve the freshest fish and other vibrant Mexican flavors. Grab a hammock and enjoy your escape… or wander into the beautiful clear water that leads out to a natural coral reef that has grown over time and is a perfect spot for leisurely snorkeling.

Heading towards town, you’ll encounter Playa la Ropa, a popular “swimmers’ beach” for both locals and tourists. Playa la Ropa is dotted with beachfront restaurants and hotels, all where you can grab a table and lounge chair for the day to sip drinks, eat snacks and enjoy the view. If you can pull yourself out of your lounge chair, you can also rent jet skis, take rides on the banana boat or go parasailing.

The Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo area is serviced by an international airport (ZIH) that receives flights from the US, Canada and Mexico City daily. We are located just a 15-minute cab ride from the airport. The beach is a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk. Taxis are inexpensive and readily available 24 hours a day.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I are avid world travelers and as we journeyed, we fell in love with Zihuatanejo. In fact, we loved it so much, we got married here! We had a dream of leaving the city and our breakneck speed jobs and opening a bed and breakfast. It only seemed natural to move to the place that inspired a sense of renewal and retreat in us so that we could share it with our guests. We have a wonderful group of friends that we've developed over the last few years of building Solana (we just opened January 1, 2014!). We spend a lot of time just relaxing and laughing with them - sharing dinner at one of our favorite restaurants on the beach, meeting for coffee in town and watching the fishermen bring in their catch, taking a drive out to the archeological ruins outside of town or going kayaking on the bay. We love to garden and have been learning all we can about local fauna as well as experimenting with growing our favorite vegetables, fruits and herbs on the property. We are excited to share our knowledge of the area and some good stories with you.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Las Gatas, Zihuatanejo, Gro., Mexico:
The view from our property is unmatched - we have a panoramic view of Zihuatanejo Bay and beyond. We were able to design and build our dream home, taking care to integrate it with the surrounding wildlife and amazing natural forest. Even though this is now our 'job', living and working at Solana really does feel like we are escaping the world every single day.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our location on the hillside provides blissful breezes all day long. As a new build, everything is fresh, clean and uniquely ours. We incorporated many environmentally friendly features into our project including grey water recycling to irrigate our gardens, building on less than a third of our land allowing for ample garden space, preserving our local trees, flora and fauna and utilizing a salt water pool. We designed our custom Mexican linens at a family-run textile factory in Patzcuaro, our bamboo furniture from a local artisan and even our lamps have a story!
