Hi! We're Paul & Connie Sorensen. We love Zihuatanejo and spend 4 - 5 weeks during January and another 10 days or so during the late fall. We have been then nearly every month of the year...and love it anytime!!! We are still part of the working class, but continue to stay focused on the not so distant future when we can spend longer periods of time in paradise. We both work full time, Paul builds custom homes and I sell residential real estate. Something happens to you when you're there. The minute you step off the plane and feel the warm air, see the many smiling faces and you say to yourself, 'I'm home.' That is how it is for us.
We completed our purchase in 2006 when it was brick and mortar. Paul, a contractor on Vashon Island, WA, supervised a local contractor to build our dreams in mid 2008. Together we designed the condo interior, shopped in Patzcuarro, Morelia and Zihua for furnishings and by December 2008 we loaded our Mexico car and took a road trip to our new vacation home! It was a great trip and we thoroughly enjoy our time in Zihua. We first began visiting Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo about 10 years ago and on our first trip bought a time share. As the years went by, we realized that Zihutanejo felt like home. We have never regretted our decision to purchase a vacation property and each year we feel more and more a part of the community.
