About the property

1Br With A King Bed, Dining Terrace, Sitting Room And A Well-Equipped Kitchen

Simple, yet sophisticated, La Casita, a large (1000 square feet) one bedroom condo is only a short walk from the lovely white sand beaches of Playa La Ropa and its five star restaurants.

La Casita lies just steps below the gorgeous infinity pools of La Casa que Ve al Mar, with its lovely gardens and fabulous views of the bay. It is a romantic retreat for two, a world unto itself. You can daydream, read, doze or merely gaze at the sailboats dancing in the bay from the front terrace. The private parking space lies conveniently close to La Casita.

Indoors, it features a sitting room, a king sized bed, a walk-in closet, a spacious bathroom and a very nice cozy kitchen. The kitchen with its marble counters, is very well equipped with everything to cook your meals. Or you can go out and partake of the many fabulous local restaurants in every price range.

La Casita features ceiling fans , two air conditioners, a stack-able washer and dryer unit, two televisions and maid service three times a week.

It is a magical Zihuatanejo experience.

Sorry, residency at La Casita is limited to two weeks. No long term rentals.

About Harriet Garfinkle

Married for 23 years, Bob and Kim Garcia purchased La Casita in November of 2015. Bob was born in Uruapan, Michoacan but grew up in Sacramento, CA. He first visited Zihautanejo as a child with his family; it has been a dream of his to purchase his own property in this tropical paradise. Kim loves Zihautanejo with its friendly locals, its great food, and its many options for adventure!

Why this property?

Harriet Garfinkle purchased this condo in 2015

Why Harriet Garfinkle chose Playa La Ropa

Just a short walk away from what's considered the most beautiful beach on the west coast of Mexico, this special place has all the creature comforts a person could want to relax and unwind while maintaining the charm of Old Mexico in the architectural details of the building and of the condo interior with its tiled bathroom and kitchen. The panoramic ocean view from the patio will persuade you to make this as your home away from home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at this Condo for two weeks while I attended a Zumba & Yoga retreat with 26 others who stayed elsewhere. When using the 2 lap pools which were up one level I had a complete view of the whole Zihuatanejo bay. Casa que Ve al Mar is a lovely well constructed place.

"Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write our first review on our new listing.Bob and Kim Garcia just bought La Casita and already have made improvements to what was an already cozy, comfortable and stylish apartment. You were their first guest! I am so glad you enjoyed the pools and our grounds as well: they are spectacular....and just steps from La Casita. Harriet Booking Manager for La Casita"

One of the best things about La Casita is that is a short walk to La Ropa beach and just a few steps from the two infinity pools. That makes lounging beachfront or poolside a snap.

Hubby and I spent 11nights/days here and it was wonderful! Photos and description are accurate. Met lots of great people around the pools. Very quiet location. Easy access to town, beaches, etc. Would definitely come again.

Perfect Vacation In Zihua

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo over the Christmas holidays and had a fabulous vacation. The condo is gorgeous and is equipped with everything you can think of to make your stay enjoyable. The on-site staff is very helpful and the beach is just a few minutes walk downhill. Taxis are cheap if you want to avoid the uphill walk. I highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kay! Well, you said it all! You encapsulated everything that we love about this sweet little condo. It is an ideal place for one or two folks to stay for a lovely few weeks in Zihua. Come again! Kind regards, Harriet

My husband & i have visited Zihua several times & have stayed at everything from staffed villas to small little places on Playa La Ropa. Casa Que Ve Al Mar, however, checks all boxes. It's small enough to feel like home but "resorty" enough to remind you you're not. Dulce & Harriet are always available, we met amazing owners & renters & even looked at an available (rare) unit there for sale. It's one of the few places in town with 24/7 SECURITY & CAMERAS....not that we've ever felt unsafe. The attention to detail at this place is impressive. Looking forward to returning asap.

Wonderful romatic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Casita was perfect for us, along with all the great people of Mexico. Our camera was damaged during check-in to Mexico, so I guess will we just have to return again; who would not want to! We fished, water boarded, etc. and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The infinity pool was a real pleasure, and we were in it three times a day. Easy to get to town, and food was so reasonable and delicious. Lovely people everywhere; from Harriet to the taxi cab people.

Owner's Response: Dear beryl s. I so enjoyed getting to know you in our phone conversations! That is one of the great parts of my job: making new friends from all over. Can you believe that I still correspond with folks who stayed with us from six, seven, even ten years ago. I think La Casita's location, with its proximity to the pool is ideal: I would join you those three times a day. thank you for the great review and thanks for having a good vacation. and for loving the kind folks of Zihua. All of us here at the La Casita team love it when folks have a great time! Saludos, Harriet
