Description from owner


Casa Del Arbol Cantando (“House of the Singing Tree”) is a beautiful 3-bedroom luxury condo on the peaceful Mexican Riviera, less than a 10-minute walk to Playa La Ropa, with a spectacular view of dreamy Zihuatanejo Bay from two terraces, both facing the bay and graced with many tropical plants and outdoor seating.

Completely renovated by husband & wife designers, this spacious 3 bedroom apartment, with 3.5 baths was crafted by some of the finest local artisans, using rich local woods, handmade terra cotta tile & fine stonework. A Brasil tree dramatically centers the entry stairway, rising up two floors.

With almost 3,000 square feet, the luxurious Casa Del Arbol Cantando is ideal for entertaining or just relaxing – perfect for 3 couples or a family. The fully-equipped kitchen with gas stove, has a lovely ENE view of the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Bottled purified water is provided.

The tropical breezes, along with ceiling fans in every room are usually more than enough for you to be completely comfortable, all rooms also have air conditioning. Every bedroom has a king-sized bed with 400-thread count all cotton linens and its own bathroom with rain showers & smooth pebble floors. The master bedroom and bath both have gorgeous bay views.

Mood lighting enhances the magic that nightfall brings. Have a cocktail on the terrace at sunset and watch the twinkling lights of the town, or, as we like to say, “the glowing embers of Zihuatanejo.” The canopy of stars overhead and the sound of the waves add to the enchantment. Let music soothe your soul with our custom sound system. A beautiful rustic wood pergola roof with bougainvillea and copa de oro flowering vines and a striking view of town across the bay frames your outdoor dining experience. This outdoor space is open enough to allow filtered light & sea breezes and sets a romantic tone to enjoy meals at home. From May to November it is covered to protect from the occasional shower. You can always eat outdoors!

Here at Punta Marina Condominiums there is a lovely 50 foot pool (good for laps) fed by a manmade waterfall, as well as off-road, covered parking, daily maintenance & 24-hour security.

Our wonderful, cheerful housekeeper Gloria comes on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays. She can also make a lovely Mexican breakfast on those days for a small charge, with notice. (Note: She speaks only Spanish.) AC is $25/day extra during the Green Season; all other times, included.

We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.

Response from the owner Thank you TIm. Glad it feels like home to you too. Happy you 'guys' will be coming back next year. I see that you are certainly getting the hang of it. That is what it's for... kicking back and enjoying being "off duty." It's very cool that you got out to the "new" archeological site, Xihuacan. Fascinating stuff. Glad Luis gave you a good tour. He's a great resource. By the way, Casa del Arbol Cantando means House of The Singing Tree." A name that comes from our love of music (Peg sings too) and also honor of our tree in the entrance. (I'm happy to be in our casa now.) See you next year!
