About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Find the hidden staircase on our quiet street and walk down a lush garden pathway into a secluded tropical paradise. This beautiful and modern two-story home spans over 1800 sq. feet and is located just above Playa Madera. Private and safe, enjoy spectacular views of Zihuatanejo Bay and the Pacific Ocean from every room. Huge windows and an open floor plan let ocean breeze circulate around the house and keep the rooms cool and airy. Designed by the owners from roof to garden, you’ll be impressed by the personal details and instant feeling of home away from home. Just walk through the front door to find the custom stone floor artwork that gives Casa Scorpion its name.

After a day of exploring, let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night. With 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, you can sleep six people comfortably on 2 king-size beds and 1 double. The two bedrooms upstairs have stunning wooden French doors opening up to a large balcony with unobstructed views of the bay. Lie in one of the many hammocks for an afternoon snooze, or take a relaxing bath in the master bedroom’s bathtub, big enough for two. You will enjoy cooking delicious meals with plenty of counter space in the large, fully equipped kitchen. Eat inside in the spacious dining room, or outside under a palapa-shaded wooden deck.

Casa Scorpion is walking distance from beaches, restaurants, shopping and downtown Zihuatanejo, and an easy taxi ride to Ixtapa – just minutes from anywhere you want to go. Available for short and long-term rentals. Make your reservation today!

About The Owner

We are Stefanie, Andrea and Natalia. Casa Scorpion is the house we grew up in since 1998. Our parents rebuilt and designed our house with a unique and creative vision, making the most of our natural surroundings and the incredible views. The personal touches and custom artwork (like the scorpion motif found throughout the house) reference our family’s life story and journey to call this place home.

We are honored to share our home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not sure where to begin...we spent 3 weeks in Casa Scorpion this July and we were completely blown away by the beauty of the house. The pictures do no justice! You can easily appreciate the care put into every detail of the house. Very warm and welcoming. We spent many a morning lounging in the hammocks with the cool breeze, crashing waves, and birds singing. We were about 5 minutes from downtown so we explored the little town quite a lot. We love to cook, and fell in love with the huge kitchen. We would love to come back to Zihuatanejo soon, and would definitely stay here again!

Great house, very nice security team, wonderful view.

Centrally located overlooking the bay, close to beach accesses via stairs, near restaurants and the municipal market in downtown. All within walking distance or a short taxi ride if the steep hill or long stairway is too much in the heat.

The Madera beach is clean and the water warm and quite calm. I had a massage right on the beach. The cute garden iguana paid us a visit near the end of our stay but was shy.

In January we sat out in the evenings on the patio with no bugs bothering us.

Stunning. We have stayed around Zihua for years but Casa Scorpion took the Tres Leches. It had a huge open floor plan, spectacular views, and the kindest caretakers we've ever met. The house is centrally located to everything. The only downside - we may never be able to top this family vacation!

casa scorpion

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house. Have stayed in the Madera neighborhood for years and this house is without any question the best. Beautiful, amazing tile and floor mosaics all over, decorated nicely, and views of the water from everywhere. There is so much room to relax, under the palapa when the sun is bright, the lounge chairs and patio, and the huge upstairs balcony with 2 hammocks in the morning and at night. The kithchen is well stocked, with good, numerous utensils, pots, pans and glasses, and the fridge is full sized, which was a first for me in zihuatanejo. The bedrooms are huge, with ocean views while lying in the bed. Every inch of the house was clean and neat.

The owner takes security very seriously, with double locks on all doors, a built in safe, and a very unobtrusive night watchman from 7 to 7 every night. we felt very safe.

The property manager Lynda was very professional, helping us arrange a day trip to Troncones with an english speaking driver, that turned out to be one of our best days. I would highly recomend Casa Scorpion to anyone that wants an above average house in the Madera part of Zihuatanejo
