This was our third stay with our travel friends at this wonderful house. The setting is idyllic with fabulous views of the bay and the beautiful sunsets. The patio and infinity pool are perfect, and the beach is literally steps away. The caretaker couple, Laco and Mireya, made sure we had everything we needed. Private, comfortable and relaxing. We'll be back again.
Absolutely perfect! The location of this lovely villa steps from the BEST beach in Mexico (and we have been to all) is just one of many reasons you should stay at Casa del Platero. The layout of the house is perfect for groups of friends or families - you can have privacy but perfect areas to gather to party or relax. The infinity pool (which you will LOVE) and seating areas have a view of the bay that is exquisite, while being surrounded by beautiful palm trees and lovely garden areas. Steps away you can walk the beach (if you can tear yourself away from the peaceful beauty of the house), about a mile stroll to the opposite end - and it is a great walking beach. Swimming, or just hanging, in the ocean is a favorite pastime with the gentle waves. When you find yourself back in the house, which is such a great combination of traditional and updated, you will find so many interesting pieces of artwork - we especially enjoyed the paintings and the masks. All together, we can't imagine any reason to ever spend a Mexican beach vacation elsewhere - access to fishing, snorkeling, massages, etc allows everyone to enjoy their favorite activities. By the way, the town of Zihuatanejo is so superior to other glitzy beach resorts, offering wonderful restaurants,l shops and friendly locals - a fun walk or cheap taxi ride away. But no need to eat there if you have the staff prepare your meals - perfection! They are simply the best caretakers, and we miss them!
We are a life long "Northern Michigan Cottage Family" fondly known as Camp DOWHATCHAWANNA and we found DOWHATCHAWANNA South!
The Hampton's lovely home is filled with character. The views are incredible only topped by the amazing care of Mireya and Laco the lovely caretakers of this paradise.
Lovely pool, an easy walk to the ocean, wonderful restaurants nearby (but with Mireya's cooking who needs then!) and quick cab ride to the Village!
We hope to return again!
Having been to Zihua. 30yrs + ago I was concerned about over development that might 've ruined the magnificent bay & quaint town,the laid back vibe of Playa de Ropa-when we 1st. stepped into the gate ,the feeling of "ahhh,it's perfect"told me that we had mde the right choice!tThe design of the house takes perfect advantage of the site &the views w/maximum privacy,but always open to the views &the wonderful breezezs.The pool is fabulous, the staff couldn't be more friendly & the food was great!
Our group of 8 family and friends were looking for a house to stay on our first visit to Zihuatanejo. Casa del Platero was the perfect fit for us. The house is beautiful. We rented the entire house. Our days were spent enjoying coffee in the morning either on the upstairs patio or around the pool. Mireya cooked us a wonderful breakfast every morning. Every afternoon either after being on the beach or doing some excursion we would be back enjoying the infinity pool. Laco was so helpful with helping us with shopping, getting places, scheduling snorkeling trips and surf lessons not to mention the great margaritas he would make for us. Watching the sunset from the upstairs house with the huge living room windows open was great. There was plenty of room for us, the one bedroom upstairs is pretty open with not much privacy but that was not a problem for us. We felt like we were at home, Laco and Mireya were wondeful. The setting is beautiful and so peaceful. We loved it there and plan to return.
