There is so much about this home that we like. I hope I don't forget all the good points.
*The location is perfect, away from the crowds and noise yet close to downtown Zihuatanejo, Madera beach, and the big supermarket (Mega Soriana). All walkable distances. There are no beach views from the house, but that is a minor point.
*The pictures of the house are accurate and it even looks better in person.
*The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates, cups, coffee maker, blender, toaster, and gadgets if you want to cook at home. If anything is missing, it's a dishwasher. (We all shared in washing dishes!)
*Every room has a permanent ceiling fan and each bedroom has an AC unit. Oh man, the AC was welcome at the end of the day!
*All the bathrooms are nice and functional with large showers in three of them.
*All the beds were comfortable (no complaints from anyone in our party)
*The house was clean and tidy when we arrived. House cleaning, once a week is included along with someone to maintain the swimming pool. (Super good)
*We stayed for the full month of November 2018, and any issues we had, were quickly resolved by the caretaker Sylvia, or Pietro the owner.
*The neighborhood around the house was very peaceful and the neighbors were very cordial. Walk to any corner to catch a cab; cheap and plentiful.
*The owner...Pietro quickly responded to any question through text or phone call as it arose. He was super. Pietro also provided one of the most concise guide books we have ever encountered in a HomeAway house. Doctors, Dentists, beaches to visit and of course restaurant references.
In short, we loved the house. We are already making plans to return.
We enjoyed this property March 24-31, 2018, the week before Easter. The room was very, very nice indeed. Roomy bathroom with large shower, kitchen furnished with most things you'll need, comfy sitting area, and a balcony with a bay view. My previous trips to Z have all been to hotels, and this was a nice upgrade for a similar price. The full sized refrigerator was especially appreciated! The room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, and the delightful maid kept it that way every day. A short 5 minute stroll through the Villa del Sol resort to the beach.
I mentioned we were there the week before Easter, and La Ropa beach was very crowded during the day. Not a spring breaker crowd, but Mexican families enjoying their vacation. We especially enjoyed watching all the little children playing. If you tire of the beach, the property has three nice pools, and we mostly had these pools to ourselves.
I've seen some reviews mentioning road noise here, and it was noticeable during the day, mostly from the balcony. Not horrible, but noticeable. At bedtime we never noticed it at all.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay here, and would recommend it to friends. I know I'd be happy to stay here again on my next trip to Z.
