2. Luxury house with beach and mountain views (from USD 495)

This eight-person luxury villa is named “Casa Encantadora” which literally translates as “Lovely House” - and that’s an accurate summation of what awaits you when you book here for a holiday.

You’ll be served for the duration of your hillside stay by a gourmet cook who will prepare five-star meals to order, and by a housekeeper who will keep the place spotless.

Amenities & Room:
The beds were very comfortable and the A/C in each bedroom worked great
Having each room on its own level gives a great sense of privacy and space if and when you need it and the main pool and outdoor living area is a fantastic spot to congregate
This property is unique because it feels more like a hotel with cleaners coming in every morning to tidy up the Kitchen and living space and every other day to clean the rooms
as well You will not be disappointed
The rooms and bathrooms seem a bit outdated with the trend for more contemporary and clean designs but the space and view more than make up for this
Host:
They are very friendly and always willing to assist in any way they can
The pool man comes every day as well to clean the pool
They also check in on you every now and then and turn all of the lights on and off for you each evening Gabriel
Location:
It truly is the best location in town because you can walk to awesome La Ropa Beach in one direction (5 minute walk) and into Zihuatanejo town in the other direction (15-20 minute walk)
It was very convenient to walk upstairs to the restaurant for breakfast in the mornings and was a great way to start off the day
This was our first visit to Zihuatanejo and were drawn to this Villa for its location and view and it did not disappoint
but that was never an issue
I had some reservations about being below a restaurant for fear of noise carrying down into the Villa

5. Idyllic four-bedroom villa (from USD 701)

This spacious villa has to be seen to be believed, and your toughest dilemma, while you’re staying here, might be deciding just which part of the property is your favorite. The expansive infinity pool will be a strong contender, offering cartoonishly beautiful views of the bay, while the house itself makes use of slate, palapa and wood to offer a rustic (yet modern) home which you’ll be reluctant to leave when the holiday is up. The villa is catered too, which means delicious, traditional Mexican cuisine whenever you want it.

6. Epic villa with panoramic scenery (from USD 413)

From the moment you look from the windows to see Zihuatanejo Bay and, across the water, the Sierra Madre Mountains, you’ll be captivated by this accommodation. Named “Estrella de Mar” (Star of the Sea), this charming villa with a gourmet kitchen has everything going for it. Close to a fishing village and served by an excellent market where you can find splendid jewelry, this is the kind of accommodation that comes to mind when you hear the word “idyllic”. If you want meals prepared, you need only ask the hosts, or you might want to try a local restaurant for a traditional dining experience.

7. Bayview villa close to everything (from USD 385)

When you’re staying in Zihuatanejo, it’s fair to say that even an average accommodation will look stunning thanks to the incredible scenery all around. So when you get a villa as independently splendid as this four-bedroom, eight-guest residence, what you get is beauty on top of beauty. Artisan furnishing and decor inside, with a 34-foot (10-meter) infinity pool outdoors, this is a delightful accommodation where you can request a cook service or use the excellent gourmet kitchen yourself. With access to private tennis courts and bike paths, it’s a wonderful spot for the sporty.

This captivating accommodation can hold up to 17 guests, and it is a peaceful, secluded off-the-grid wonder with its own power supply provided by solar panels.

Seclusion and luxury, all without adding to your carbon footprint - what more could you want?

9. Two-floor condo with stunning view

Holidaymakers who enjoy their space will be delighted by this condo; one of just four accommodations in a large building, the space you will be renting stretches over two stories, the top two in the building. The condo offers an expanse of outdoor decking with unparalleled views of Zihuatanejo Bay. High-speed internet is available throughout, including next to the outdoor pool which, typically, you will have all to yourself. An excellently equipped kitchen is more than big enough for prepping and cooking meals for the four people the condo is equipped to accommodate.
