Our gorgeous 2BR/2BA brand-new villa at Ensueño 10 hangs like a jewel above Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

C’est la vie. This is the life. Extraordinary villa at Ensueño 10 overlooking the bay, where French farmhouse meets Costa Grande. We also have a third DETACHED bedroom suite for an extra fee.

The space

Our luxurious villa with a rock wall a foot thick (think castle) features spectacular vistas from every room. It is one of just six villas in the compound.

Newly built, extraordinary villa at Ensueño 10 overlooking the bay, where French farmhouse meets Costa Grande style. Ensueño means ‘daydream’ and this villa is a dream both day and night.

It has been the vision of talented designer/builder Andrés Saavedra to design a small, boutique eco-friendly complex from the ground up. This is it. Our luxurious villa with a rock wall a foot thick (think castle) features spectacular vistas from every room. It is one of just six villas in the compound.

Ensueño 10 has a lovely green salt-water pool overlooking the bahia. The pool area features ample lounge chairs and a fiesta-sized shaded palapa (palm frond roof) with a barbecue and seating.

You will not believe your luck when you see this villa. There is only one shared side wall, so nobody will be stomping overhead: each villa sits on its own land. It is the perfect place for a first or second honeymoon. We have two bedroom suites on the main floor, with the option of renting a third detached bedroom suite for an extra fee.

We are four flights up, but the funicular can slowly ascend you to the front door. The air- conditioned gym is equipped with Life Fitness treadmill, elliptical trainer and free weights. Our casa is right above the pool.

Our mission is to help folks learn to love Zihuatanejo and its surrounding areas as much as we do and to give them the best vacation possible.

This is an exceptional villa with gorgeous furnishings and appointments, lovely art and a drop-dead view. If you enjoy the finer things in life, this is the villa for you.

You will be happy here.

Guest access

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 table for 6, a copper topped coffee table, ample couch and chair seating. The breeze flows off the bay though the Parota wood shutters to keep you comfortable and cool.

There is no shortage of lounging available. The terrace/deck has a ‘Bali Bed’ under the palapa, which is really a comfortable double outdoor bed for lying and watching the boats dancing on the bay or the stars flying by.

The detached downstairs bedroom has a king bed. Its bathroom is nestled right into the bedrock of the hillside. It is extraordinary.

The kitchen features an 6-burner stove, granite counters, ample storage, double sink, microwave, Henckels knives, gourmet cooking pans, coffee maker & grinder, blender, toaster, orange juicer, mini-Cuisinart and numerous chef’s tools (we love to cook!).

The dish ware is gorgeous blue and white hand-painted Talavera from Puebla and our glassware is Mexican hand-blown glass. The silverware is beautiful heavy stainless. We also supply you with a filtered water dispenser at the sink.

Each of two the upstairs bedrooms have king-sized beds (great mattresses!), 400+ Italian percale linens and air conditioning, terraces and views! The pillows are Pacific Coast feather and down pillows.

The two upstairs bedrooms have sliding doors with shutters and screens and bed canopies, so you can sleep with the sound of the waves lapping at your dreams. If you would rather, you can close the glass doors and use the AC (we almost never do).

For larger parties, you also have the option of a third detached bedroom suite with a king bed, mini fridge, coffee maker and bathroom.

All bathrooms feature onyx sinks and appointments. The master bath has the most beautiful bathroom with an outdoor shower and a tropical garden and a view to the bay. We have luxury towels and hair dryers in each bathroom.

The casa features in-house WIFI, DISH TV and DVD player in each upstairs bedroom, a house phone and a portable Bose docking station for your favorite tunes. We have our own washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. We supply beach towels.

The suite is very spacious and contained more the could be expected for kitchen accessories, extra shampoo, and lots of towels. We loved the pool and closeness to the beach and being on holiday the walk up the hill was good exercise. A wonderful place to stay with breathtaking views and everything you'll need for a perfect vacation.

C'est La Vie in Zihuatenejo is a great spot with lovely views and a warm inviting layout. Perfect for a family or small group of friends. Situatated a brief hike from Playa La Ropa and a taxi ride into town it makes for a perfect vacation getaway. Owner is great and property manager in Zihuatenejo is fantastic.
