Condo in Zihuatanejo

Casa Mariposa is located on the ground floor of La Ceiba Playa Madera, a small condominium complex conveniently located in the heart of Zihuatanejo. Only minutes away from the beach, this gated complex is secure and quiet with an intimate and inviting atmosphere.

The mix of traditional and tropical Mexican architecture harmonizes with the lush tropical garden and the large shade trees. Natural materials from the region are used in the finishing touches of the condominium. Exotic woods, rustic-looking adobe walls, and a tile roof evoke the feeling of old Mexico. Hand-laid river stones decorate the floors and counters. Original artworks by local artists hang on the walls.

The large outdoor terrace features a dining table that seats four people, a hammock and a separate seating area. Palm trees and a bamboo curtain provide privacy but allow air to circulate (the terrace also has an overhead fan) so you can sit outside and enjoy the breeze.

The pools are only steps away, surrounded by comfortable loungers for napping or reading. Tables and chairs, with overhead umbrellas, offer another choice for you to enjoy meals, drinks, or snacks.

Bottled water, weekly maid service, and Wi-Fi Internet service are included.

Casa Mariposa is only minutes away (walking) from the public market. Playa Principal where fishermen sell their morning catch is a short walk away, and Playa Madera where local families, tourists, and long time residents swim and boogie board is even closer. Small restaurants selling cold drinks, snacks, and full meals can be found on all three of the nearby beaches.

Shopping and restaurants are all within easy walking distance, but if you'd rather not walk, taxis (20 pesos -- $1.75 -- to anywhere in town) are available right outside the door of the complex.

Zihuatanejo has an International airport (ZIH) with non-stop service to major American and Canadian cities.

Minimum rental: one week.

Very Good

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2010

I hate to give a good review because everyone will want to go and it may not be available for us, however ann was so sweet and easy to work with that I have to give her the highest rating. The location was perfect, though not on the beach was perfect for us. We have already made are plans for 2011.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2010

Great location. The condo complex was full of very friendly people. Everything was very clean and the staff was very helpful. Zihuatanejo is a wonderful place to visit.

“Convenient Location - Comfortable and Charming”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2010

All our dealings with Ann prior to our trip were easy and efficient, making our arrival extremely pleasant. The condo is well equipped on every level, the beds comfortable, kitchen well fitted, and plenty of hot water. The decor and ambience of the condo is lovely and very "Mexican" in feeling. It is in a safe and easy neighbourhood with wonderful restaurants and close to the market. There is easy access to the beaches and the town of Zihuatanejo.

“The Perfect Vacation Destination”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2010

I spent 5 weeks of heavenly bliss in this condo and surrounding town and beaches. Tranquil sums it up! The condo is comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The beds are exceptionally comfortable! The pool areas are inviting and the water is always warm. I spent alot of my time outside on the terrace of the condo -- a perfect place to eat and relax. I can't wait to return!

“Fabulous accommodation”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2010

What a great find. Lucky for us, we were able to take advantage of a last minute cancellation. It was perfect for our family with teenage daughters. While not on the beach, we enjoyed the lovely, tranquil environment, a short walk to town, taxis outside the front door, the friendliness of repeat long term guests. Loved the decor and the easy to use mod cons. The lanai was where we spent lots of time, shaded, perfect place to nap and where we ate all of our meals, played cards and drank margaritas till the wee hours. I would definately stay here again.

“Relaxing stay in paradise”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2010

We really enjoyed our stay at ann's 2 bedroom condo. It was very comfortable for 2 couples, in a very peaceful complex with a nice pool, 5 minutes from the beach (up and over a steep hill), close to good resteaurants (and Monica's cooking classes), and a short walk to the main part of town. We would highly recommend it, and we are planning to go back, as soon as we can. Thank you ann for sharing your place. Jette and Jim from Wa

“Comfortable, Well-Equipped Condo in Great Location”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2010

We really enjoyed our stay in Zihuatanejo, in large part because of the great location of this condo. It is a 10 minute walk from El Centro and a five minute walk to Playa la Madera. There are fabulous, affordable restaurants right in the neighborhood. The development is quiet and private, with two swimming pools and nice landscaping. Taxis to anywhere in town were very cheap, so no rental car is needed. The condo itself is nicely decorated and has two master bedrooms with ensuite baths. The lanei is also private and ideal for quiet meals and restful siestas. Since the condo is a middle, lower unit, it is dark, but it didn't matter much since we were outside most of the time anyway.
