Impressive, relaxful, beautiful, super accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's place is wonderful. Just a short walk to the beach and features beautiful super clean rooms with a local feel. Just the right size so you think the place is all your own. Quiet, relaxing and very safe. Hope to stay there again soon.

Oh yeah, we'll be back!!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to lovely Zihuatanejo before but knew what we wanted in an accommodation; close to if not on the beach, a pool, easy transportation and a helpful host. Villas Los Arcos did more than fit the bill and we would have to say, as others have, that this was the best place we have ever stayed at in Mexico. We stayed in the open palapa; if you need walls, hate a lovely soft breeze, don't like watching the sunrise or sunset, don't care for a comfortable bed and can't be bothered with a wonderful host, don't stay here!!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience or a more marvellous two weeks. Thanks for all your info, Nancy - much appreciated and all your recommendations were great.

So relaxing, our new home in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 14 days in Villas Los Arcos, the apartment with full kitchen and it was wonderful. Pros: the bed was very comfortable, the apartment stays cool enough you don't have to have the a.c. on all the time, it's roomy, close to the beach and food (Rossy's great for breakfast and drinks), Nancy is accommodating and informative, the apartment is very clean, pool is large for the size of the facility, we always had a chair.

Cons: keep in mind this is an apartment and not a condo. There are the basics for meal cooking (pots, pans, dishes) but you will need to buy condiments, spices if you plan to cook. Remember the Mexican plumbing doesn't allow TP, the hot water is 'm demand' so it takes a while to get enough for a shower. This property is a healthy walk to town, 40 minutes at a strong pace. Busses don't run later in the evening, so cabs are your transportation.

I would recommend this property for couples, even seniors and I would return in a heart beat

Amazing! Stayed in El Bamboo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Nancy for one night a couple weeks ago on the top floor (suite El Bamboo).

Completely open to views and the outdoors on all sides under the tall palapa roof, this open-to-nature living might not be for everyone, but it quickly became one of the favourite places we have ever stayed. She has a few other great looking suites for anyone who wants to be a bit more enclosed.

Nancy was great to deal with and was very flexible about check-in/check-out times, and her great staff even took us to our next destination. The pool and area was excellent as well. We just can't say enough good things about the experience.

It was such a wonderful setting, that I wish we had been able to stay longer, and we sure hope to be back!

Incredible Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the El Cedro apartment. It was perfect in every way. The bed was comfortable and everything was so clean and set-up in such a user-friendly way. We had a huge fridge and a very functional mini-kitchen that allowed us to prepare all of our meals. The bathroom is big and bright and open-air. There is parking. The pool was perfect as was the common spaces. Nancy invited us to her New Year's pre-celebration and it allowed us to spend time meeting new people. Nothing has been overlooked. It is a two minute walk from the beach and large supermarkets are accessible by car. It is truly a perfect place and we will certainly be renting there again.

Beyond even our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our enjoyment at finding this accommodation! What we found when we arrived was even better than what we had seen in the beautiful internet listings. 2 other couples were with us and we took the El Roble, El Cedro, and El Bamboo Suites, all were beautiful and clean. We enjoyed the El Bamboo "treehouse" suite very much. Nancy, the owner is friendly and welcoming. Her advice for all things Zihua (fishing, transportation, attractions, dining) were spot on! She knows the area well.The restaurant across the street serves a great breakfast, the bus to town is easy and right out the door. The Staff is amazing, everything is kept and beautiful. The pool is clean and refreshing anytime. There is an outdoor shower there as well as a restroom for guest convenience. The grounds are beautiful and we felt completely comfortable in the secure compound. The beach (La Ropa) is less than 5 minute walk away and it is the best beach in Zihua! Good swimming, activities, massages ($14 usd for 1 hour!) and places to eat. I hope we are able to come back to enjoy this beautiful accommodation again someday. Thank you Nancy and your wonderful staff for an unforgettable vacation!
