A memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a memorable vacation in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Perched on a lush hillside above La Ropa Beach, Ensueño 10, the six-unit condo where we stayed, is beautifully furnished with a great view of the bay. Playa la Ropa (“clothes beach”) was named for a Spanish galleon’s cargo of silks and fabrics brought from the Orient and scattered here from a shipwreck. The condo’s private deck, with an assortment of comfortable outdoor furniture and loungers, served as our headquarters as we planned our activities, read, and ate meals we prepared for ourselves. From our condo we relished in magnificent views of surrounding green hills, and watched the many water sports on the bay: skiing, parachute gliding, boogie boards, and jet skiing. Water taxis sailed between the town pier and idyllic Playa las Gatas.

Although the hills are steep, from our condo we could walk to the beach and stroll along sparkling white sand, passing luxurious hotels, restaurants, and gift shops. Sometimes we choose to hike back up the hill to our condo; sometimes we took a taxi, which proved to be an inexpensive mode of transportation.

On such a vacation, we usually prefer to have some of our meals “in” and we found groceries in Zihautanejo readily available and inexpensive. The kitchen in our condo had all the necessary equipment needed to manage meals with a minimum of hassle.

Taking a taxi, we rode into town to check out the fishing village. We watched as fishermen brought in and displayed their day’s catch. From there we strolled along a walkway with condos and hotels on one side and the sea on the other.

Another day we strolled among Zihautanejo’s cobblestone streets and visited shops nestled in nooks and crannies. We admired the vibrant colors of Mexican art, and enjoyed observing the culture, listening to conversations in rapid Spanish with traditional Mexican music in the background. Another day we took a water taxi from the town pier and sailed to Playa las Gatas beach. On the small strip of land between the densely forested hill and white-sand beach, restaurants and bars serve meals and drinks; little gift stands feature swimwear and water toys.

Our time in Zihautanejo was a memorable vacation. We found plenty to do at the pace we wanted to do it. But there’s plenty of other activities, too, whether you have “champagne taste and a beer budget” or seek luxury, glamour and pampering. Your stay can be a tranquil rustic retreat, or more lively. It's up to you.

***Sometimes Dreams do Come True***

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is Chic, yet not stuffy, for 1 couple or 2, a small family or a place for friends just to unwind….LOOK NO FURTHER!! Casa 1 has lovely amenities, interior design, functionality, and breathtaking views that will make you want to pinch yourself to see if they are real! A quick walk to the beach and restaurants by day, and the tranquility of the sound of waves by night. Evelyn the Property Manager was absolutely terrific and delivered on everything that was discussed!! The entire staff at Ensueno 10 went out of their way to make sure our stay was the absolute best it could be. It is definitely a very rewarding experience and we can PROMISE you will not be disappointed!!

We spend 19 days relaxing in this gorgeous, beautifully appointed, comfortable (everything you need and more!) villa. The dipping pool and breath-taking views from the amazing private terrace were the icing on the cake! And the entire staff couldn't be more helpful and attentive ... especially Evelyn the property manager who can hook you up with anything you need -- even her signature blue welcome Margarita ;) Be prepared to fall in love with Zihuat and this extraordinary property and location ...

The perfect property to truly relax !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our friends spent a week and we had never had an experience that amazing as the one when we stayed at Casa1 of el Ensueño 10. This property was so clean and well set up, the terrace was so peaceful and the view was breath taking ! The greeting at arrival was fantastic ! Refreshing Margaritas and a nice lady orienting us into the house and the common areas. What we enjoyed the most was the privacy and setting of the complex. It was also nice that the common areas were never crowded. I highly recommend this property !

The most wonderful experience of relaxation and luxury, house 1 or "casa 1" makes you wish it was your home and could stay there forever. With an elegant Mexican style and the greatest view of the Pacific Ocean you don't need anything else, I strongly recommend this amazing place!!

I know there are more properties for rent at "Ensueño 10", but don't make that mistake, go to casa 1"

My husband and I have been to Zihuatanejo for many years now, and we had never had an experience as wonderful as the one when we stayed at Casa1 of el Ensueño 10.

This property is a dream come true! It is unbelievable how much love and excellent taste has been put into every detail of is house! It features an open kitchen and living/dining area with the most beautiful view to the bay,and a huge deck with a jacuzzi for perfect relaxation. Best of all, the house has a very private setting and the common areas are never crowded. By far, this has been the best experience we have had while vacationing here, and we are already planning to return. Congratulations to the owners!
