I returned for the forth time, and cannot get enough of the tranquil vistas, warm seas and comforts of the villa. Hospitality of the caretakers is fantastic! There is so much to do, or just enjoy the book by the picturesque window.

Management response:

We appreciate and value return customers like you! Thank you so much for your kind words about our staff. We agree they are fantastic. And the view isn't too bad, either:) Casa del Platero

I just returned from a week in paradise at Casa Del Platero. This beautiful and well appointed home is located conveniently on La Ropa Beach in Zihuatanejo Bay. If you enjoy spectacular sunsets while sipping margaritas, Casa Del Platero is your next vacation spot. The recently renovated chef’s kitchen is well equipped for cooking fresh local fish from the market....

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.

About the neighbourhood
Casa del Platero sits at the south end of La Ropa Beach and overlooks Zihuatanejo Bay. La Ropa is considered the most beautiful beach in Zihuatanejo and offers many beach activities and restaurants. You won't need a car here. The taxi stand is a 60-second walk from the house. To take a cab to downtown costs about $3.50 and takes 5 minutes. It's the best of both worlds...beach access and easy downtown access You can also take a taxi to Ixtapa, Barra de Potosi, or Playa Linda. Every thing is close and not expensive to get to. Also, Las Gatas, where you can enjoy great snorkeling, is a short walk from the house as well. CONTACT:casadelplatero@gmail.com
