About Georgina Michel

Growing up in Mexico I spend a lot of time at the beach. We would visit many beaches along the Pacific coast, but there is no doubt that Ixtapa is the perfect location for a family vacation! We finished building this house shortly after moving to NY for my husband's work. As much as we would like to spend many weekend there, we do not visit as often. However, we believe that houses that are well lived are also better kept, thus we decided to rent our little piece of paradise!

Georgina Michel purchased this house in 2013

Why Georgina Michel chose Ixtapa

We have spent many years traveling to Ixtapa, we even got married there! It is the perfect beach vacation to enjoy with family, friends, or in a romantic getaway! There are activities for everyone, the beach is peaceful, the locals are welcoming, the food is delicious and the weather can't be beat!

What makes this house unique

Views, views, views... from morning tranquility, to day gorgeous, to unbelievable sunsets, all the way to magnificent starry skies!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 15, 2016

The moment the VRBO Bear & his family walked into Casa Jaguar we knew we were at the perfect luxury family vacation home! The endless views of the ocean & lush landscaping were just beautiful. Having five bedrooms provided us with more than enough space for our family. The children enjoyed splashing in the pool while the adults spent time swimming laps & eating fresh local fruit at the swim-up bar. The staff at Casa Jaguar were very attentive, friendly and welcoming. They provided excellent service including hot breakfasts and delicious snacks as well as extremely clean rooms with fresh towels and linens. Many days were spent just enjoying Casa Jaguar and the amenities. When we wanted to venture out, we were able to take a quick drive into either Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo to explore the markets, eat the local food, and play at the beach. Our family will have memories that will last a lifetime thanks to this stunning property located in Ixtapa, Mexico.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

An amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation at Casa Jaguar. The home is gorgeous and the views and sunsets are spectacular. We enjoyed many meals prepared by Adriana - breakfast, lunch and dinner and they were all delicious. Tonia and Iselda were a pleasure - always smiling and willing to do whatever they could to make our stay enjoyable. The home was spotless and very tastefully designed, no small details overlooked.

Thank you Georgina for our allowing us to share in your piece of paradise - you were also a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to any of our requests.

If you are a looking for a stress free vacation in a gorgeous home then look no further - we would highly recommend.

Great home. location and staff. Some non-working items. 5th bedroom is not as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The Good:

Casa Jaguar is a gorgeous home in a spectacular, safe location with stunning views from every room. The house is beautifully designed with great attention to detail. The staff of three is wonderful. If you love home-made tortillas, ceviche, fresh fish, rice and beans. mole or other traditional Mexican fare, you are in for a treat. The food served at the home is fantastic.

The main floor consists of 4 large, air-conditioned bedrooms, kitchen, living room, outdoor dining room, lawn and pool area. Each bedroom has its own full bath, a large closet and more than one bed. Internet is available throughout the house.

The Bad:

Unfortunately, the upstairs (actually, up-ladder) bedroom - despite amazing views - is not worthy of this lovely home. There's no place to hang a towel or clothes (despite the listing stating that all bedrooms have closets). There's not even a mirror in the bathroom - to shave, you have to descend 2 flights to the well-lit bathroom in the basement. The "king-sized" bed is really two twin mattresses, so if you cuddle with your sweetie, someone will sleep uncomfortably on the crack. And the water in the shower sometimes slows to a literal trickle with no warning. There's also a room-wide step between the bathroom and bed. Because the step is at an angle to the bathroom, we each tripped several times, especially at night.

We chose this rental in large part because this home boasts a shaded, heated pool with a large shallow area for our youngsters and a swim-up bar for adults. We wrote the host in advance to ensure the pool was heated to our desired temperature, and the host graciously confirmed those arrangements a few days before our arrival. However, in the 10 days we were there, the heater never worked, and the pool was usually too cold for us to use it. {The adjacent narrow lap pool was unheated but 5 degrees warner because it is in the sun. It was fine for adults. However, the kids couldn't play there on the fun pool toys we brought because they would have hit their heads on the side of the pool when falling off. Also, that pool has no shallow area.)

The TV in the media room had no reception (confirmed by the owner after our arrival).

Owner's Response: Dear Pamela, I appreciate you taking the time to review our property. I am happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay, particularly the food! I am sorry you were disappointed by the upstairs bedroom. We are in the process of installing a mirror in the bathroom and of looking for alternatives for closets/clothes storage. However, I do remember letting you know that we recommend that room for young couples/adults specifically because of its location. I also described to you the steep boat-like ladder used as access. In the future I will make sure that guests understand the details of this unique bedroom. Thank you again, and best of lucks! Georgina

Great House and Location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property and lovely location and staff although very little English spoken. Would do well to have a part time concierge to assist. Also tried to communicate with Owner multiple times via email but for some reason did not receive a response which is strange and certainly do not appreciate receiving a negative rating from her on our own traveler profile when we certainly tried to reach out multiple times! Luckily the very kind staff helped us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our property. We will recommend a translation app to our non-Spanish speaking guests in the future! It is funny how I am under the same impression you are! I also tried reaching out several times, responding to all your and your husband's emails and texts but heard nothing back from you. I am happy that you had a nice stay and that the staff was able to help with all your needs. Best of lucks! Georgina

Just amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect stay for several couples or families. Georgina is a meticulous and caring owner whose team of Adrianna, Iselda, and Antonia couldn't have been more accommodating to each and every need. The living areas were spotless and constantly cleaned and food prep was magnificent. Loved every minute up until departure.
