Tranquil and comfortable, we want Casa Maravillosa to feel like home. With clean, spacious rooms, internet and television service, a fully equipped kitchen and a wide variety of concierge services to choose from, you'll have everything you need for a relaxing stay. From our terrace, watch the boats bob on the bay while the birds soar, dive and swoop. Listen to the ocean surge as it lulls you to sleep through open windows. Of course, Zihuatanejo and our neighboring tourist destination, Ixtapa, offer plenty to do from deep sea fishing and scuba diving to shopping, from beachfront margaritas to cliffside 5-course fine dining, from cooking classes to zipline jungle tours. Just make sure to "stay in" at Casa Maravillosa for at least one sunset cocktail. While you watch the sky change from blue to purple, from orange to hot pink, you'll realize exactly why we love calling Zihuatanejo & Casa Maravillosa "home."
As we say here in Mexico, "Bienvenido a casa."
Casa Maravillosa is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath private home with attached garage and all of the amenities needed for a comfortable quiet stay in paradise. Our spacious bedrooms all have mini-split air conditioning units for maximum comfort while two also have small private terraces. However, if you open the doors to the sound of the waves and the fresh ocean breezes you can probably forget all about the air conditioning! We have just completed a kitchen upgrade that will inspire you to take a trip downtown to el mercado (the market) to buy fresh local produce and even fresher fish caught the very same day! Our large “common area” terrace is connected to the kitchen, making it hard to resist blending a margarita, mashing up some authentic guacamole and settling into one of the hammocks or our built-in sofas for a leisurely afternoon capped off with a spectacular sunset over the bay.
It’s all about location, location, location! Casa Maravillosa is perched above Zihuatanejo Bay, just a few minutes walk to two of the most popular local swimmer’s beaches. From our prime spot, you have a commanding view of the entire bay leading out to the Pacific Ocean, downtown Zihuatanejo and the surrounding Sierra Madre mountains. If you can pull yourself from the hammocks on our terrace, take a boogie board down to Playa la Madera for an afternoon of catching the waves, playing in the sand and watching the school children take a refreshing dip in the water after classes. Stroll in the other direction and spend the day at Playa la Ropa, a 3/4 mile stretch of white sand that is dotted with beach restaurants, a yoga studio, hotels, massage tents and water sports operators that offer parasailing, jet ski & catamaran boat rentals, innertube and “banana boat” rides and fishing excursions.
Zihuatanejo Centro is a 15 minute walk from Casa Maravillosa and there you will find more restaurants, an artisan’s market, our town square at la cancha (the basketball courts), shops and plenty to see and do while you wander around. Zihuatanejo is the number one return destination in Mexico. We think one reason this is true is because you really can make your vacation whatever you want it to be. With nearby surf beaches & lazy lounging beaches, night clubs in Ixtapa and strolling troubadours in Zihuatanejo, gourmet restaurants and taco stands, there is something for everyone. We think Casa Maravillosa is the perfect place to start the day and fall asleep at night to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. What you do in between is all up to you!
