C'est la vie. This is the life. Mexican Palapa meets French Farmhouse in our newly built, extraordinary villa at Ensueño 10 overlooking the bay. Life doesn't get any better than this.

Our gorgeous 3BR/3BA villa at Ensueño 10 hangs like a jewel above Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. *$50 additional for over four guests.

We believe in the sensory experience, and for this reason the villa is a delight to the senses: to the eyes, ears and to the touch. The acid-washed red Puebla marble floors under your bare feet, the touch of flamed granite counters, the smooth onyx bathrooms and an expansive view terrace that spans the width of the condo.

The al fresco living area with its soaring palapa roof is a great place to kick back with a cool drink and enjoy the amazing sunsets over Bahia Zihuatanejo. It features an onyx dining...

About the neighbourhood
We went to Zihuatanejo on our first date in 1978.

Back then it was a sleepy fishing village, where you could lie on the beach all day under a palapa. You could take a occasional plunge in the gentle surf, sip a piña colada, dine on the freshest fish, and take a nighttime stroll under more stars than you could ever dream up.

Zihuatanejo has kept all of its old world charm and remains one of the most beautiful beaches and bays in the world. And Playa La Ropa is one of the most swimmable beaches in Mexico.

The Greek Isles, the Amalfi Coast, even the South Pacific Islands have little more to offer.

We have traveled a lot since then, but Zihuatanejo is the place we always go back to, and finally in 2006 we satisfied a lifelong dream to build and design a place to share with others...
