About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Don't you want to see Zihua at its best? Indoor/outdoor living.

Enjoy unparalleled views of Zihuatanejo Bay in the comfort of your two bedroom, two bath condominium at Puesta del Sol, Casa Santa Barbara. Enjoy outdoor dining and entertaining on the large 230 sq foot terrace with wet bar and outdoor living area. If outdoor living is important to you when you visit Mexico, you do not want to miss out on this fantastic feature!!

Located in the prestigious La Casa Que Ve al Mar complex, designed by the locally famous architect Enrique Zozoya (La Casa Que Canta).

Escape into the air-conditioned living room/kitchen area, replete with all modern amenities such as flat screen TV, DVD library, wireless internet and full kitchen. But, immerse yourself in authentic Mexico by enjoying our upscale Mexican touches such as Oaxacan pottery, Zapotec rugs and saltillo tile throughout. The master bedroom has its own spectacular view with balcony and both bedrooms/baths are outfitted with hand woven bedspreads and wall hangings from Patzcuaro and are beautifully decorated with Talavera sinks and tiles.

Casa Puesta del Sol (the sunset) is located a five minute walk from from the tranquil beach, la Playa Ropa. Its location above the beach takes advantage of the tropical breezes that blow up into the hillside. Even in the hottest part of the year, you can generally use the ceiling fans provided and will not need to turn on the air-conditioning.

The complex has two infinity pools with lovely views of the bay and gated security. Our Condominium comes with a designated parking spot in the event that you would like to rent a car for your stay.

It is very easy to get around Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa and our condo is conveniently located a 15-20 minute drive from the airport. Our local beach, La Playa Ropa, has four five-star restaurants within a five minute drive of our complex and many other opportunities to take advantage of sun, dining, and fun.

The town, (el Centro) is a short $3 cab ride away with many other opportunities to explore. For nightlife, Ixtapa is a 15 minute, $8 cab ride away.

Sorry, residency at Puesta del Sol is limited to two weeks. No long term rentals.

About Harriet Garfinkle

Married for 23 years, Bob and Kim Garcia purchased Puesta del Sol in November of 2015. Bob was born in Uruapan, Michoacan but grew up in Sacramento, CA. He first visited Zihautanejo as a child with his family; it has been a dream of his to purchase his own property in this tropical paradise. Kim loves Zihautanejo with its friendly locals, its great food, and its many options for adventure!

Harriet Garfinkle purchased this condo in 2015

Why Harriet Garfinkle chose Zihuatanejo

Just a short walk away from what's considered the most beautiful beach on the west coast of Mexico, this special place has all the creature comforts a person could want to relax and unwind while maintaining the charm of Old Mexico in the architectural details of the building and of the condo interior with its tiled bathroom and kitchen. The panoramic ocean view from the patio will persuade you to make this as your home away from home!

What makes this condo unique

There is fantastic 230 sq foot covered terrace which has a fabulous view and plenty of room to stretch out (has a dining table, wet bar and chairs to lounge in). You will end up spending alot of time there! The infinity pools are wonderful as well!

Comfortable, cool and familiar!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Puesta del Sol. This was our second time staying at Casa que Ve al Mar and we loved it again. It's the perfect place to stay if you want easy beach access and a great pool. It is also the perfect place to stay with children. Can't wait to do it again!

Great location, beautiful condo, excellent infinity pools!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay! The walk down to the beach is steep but very brief. This is the near the best stretch of the best beach in Zihua. La Ropa or bust! The infinity pools were amazing, the beach gorgeous. The unit had a lovely view and the open air design was amazing. Clean, comfortable. Friendly staff around. And we were welcomed with a beautiful flower arrangement. This place was amazing- I highly recommend it and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Lauren- We so appreciate that you took the time to write this great review of La Casita! We, too, prize all the same things as you: the infinity pools, the view, the proximity to gorgeous La Ropa beach (some say the best beach in Mexico!) and the friendly folks who work and live in Zihua. We are so fortunate to have Dulce on our staff to greet and orient you and to answer any questions. Please come stay with us again. Saludos, Harriet Booking Manager

What a peaceful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Puesta del Sol. You can't beat the view, we spent most of our time outside on the balcony, or in the infinity pool. The furnishings are in line with traditional Mexico with tile and stucco. The bed headboard is also stucco, so be careful not to bang your head, ouch!

There were plenty of birds with their happy chirping. And some kind of bird the other guests called a Mexican Chicken as they tend to wake you up in the morning. We also saw a few gecko lizards and what we hope was gecko poop in various places.

We didn't use the kitchen much as this was vacation :-) But there is a smallish propane grill outside that's good for 1 steak or maybe 4 hamburgers. We went with Cowboy Rib-Eye from Mega-Commercial grocery (40 peso taxi ride).

Most nights we walked down the hill to Pati's. 2x1 between 5 and 7 pm, dinner and drinks for two was about 225 peso, or I think $13 USD. You can't beat that! Also the grilled snapper was outstanding (180 pesos), it's 'whole fish' so the head and fins are still attached (not something I'm used to). You pass the taxi stand on the way back, or just work off your dinner and walk back up the hill.

The driveway and parking lot are a bit bumpy for thongs. We learned to take the stairs next to the first pool, walk down the driveway to the guard, then take the stairs to the stree.

We will keep this place on our list and hopefully return some day.

Owner's Response: Dear G&L- LOL. I think the 'Mexican chickens' you are referring to are called chacalacas! They are noisy birds! I could have been bat poop that you saw: bats are good.Bats eat mosquitoes which carry disease, so bats a very good. Thanks so much for your informative review! And please join us again in paradise.

Puesta Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Zihuatanejo and in the condo! We found it hard to leave the building it was so beautiful. What a fantastic view from the unit. We never turned on the air conditioner and we had the doors open day and night. No bugs and the breeze up the mountain just cooled off the unit wonderfully. We practically lived on the terrace for the week!

We enjoyed our daily walks on the beach and it wasn't too strenuous of a walk back-and-forth each day. We took advantage of the reasonable massages on the beach and went three or four times! We took a taxi into the centre of the city which was no problem at all and was very reasonable. We discovered one restaurant that we really liked and went back to right along the walk in the harbour, Puerto di Mare, great food and wonderful service

We hired a cook to come in one night and cook dinner for us Elizear made the contact. She cooked an authentic Mexican meal it was a great evening!

Owner's Response: Dear Marc D., For the five star review! Thank you also first sharing your photos with me in an email: you look like a lovely folks. The restaurant you liked is called Porto di Mare (my spell check typed it in Spanish to you rather than Italian). For years we have enjoyed many meals there, especially the gazpacho. In addition to cabs being cheap and easy to get into El Centro, there are also Microbuses that run about every 10 or 15 minutes from the beach to downtown. I think they cost as little as 5.5 pesos. You mentioned wanting to return again next year and we would love to have you: you are wonderful guests. Harriet Booking manager for Puesta Del Sol

Just like the photos on VRBO

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as promised. Fantastic views of Playa La Ropa from a comfortable terrace. Good privacy and room to spare for two of us. Could have easily shared the space with another couple. As others have commented, good breezes and ceiling fans, and AC if you need it. Inexpensive taxis are moments away, so no need for a car. Staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds and gardens beautifully maintained. While a short walk to Playa La Ropa (and some delicious nearby restaurants), it is uphill on your return. That was fine with my wife and I as we enjoyed the exercise. And the ubiquitous taxis are always an option.

Owner's Response: Thank you! You both were terrific guests. I appreciate your saying it was just like the photos becasue sometimes folks do wonder if what they are seeing on VRBO is what they will get! We, too, enjoy both the pleasant walk to the beach and the more aerobic climb back uphill. There are so many great eateries now within easy walking distance from Puesta del Sol. Some of our favorites are Il Mare, Las Azucenas, Paty's, Gianni's Trattoria, LOOT, El Manglar, Jungle Pizza, Mi Chayito, Rossy's...well, yum. Thanks again! Harriet Booking Manager for Puesta del Sol
