I have a large second story apartment in a quiet residential complex made up of mostly Mexican families and a few expats. My apartment is home to a couple of lovely kitties (and a foster kitty and foster rescue pup) who are very chill and split their time between running around outside and lounging around the house.
The room is quite large with a queen size bed, dresser and hanging open closet. Overhead ceiling fan and A/C will keep you nice and cool for sleeping. The room has it´s own private bath and shower. I provide guests with clean sheets, bath towel and bath essentials. I have beach towels for rent at a minimal cost. Guests can use the kitchen and common areas and have WiFi access. There is off street parking within the complex if you are arriving by car.
The area is a few blocks from La Madera beach and a quick walk into downtown Zihuatanejo. It´s a great base to explore the town and within walking distance to all beaches within the bay (La Ropa, La Madera and Las Gatas).
Nearby is downtown "el centro" with many restaurants, farmers market (as well as a weekly organic market), shops, cafes, bars and banks. If you prefer to get a ride to the beach, you'll find plenty of taxis and frequent mini-buses that shuttle back and forth between beaches and downtown, just a block from the apartment. Renting a car is not really necessary.
If you are interested in language exchange programs, cooking classes, surfing, scuba, snorkeling, yoga, cultural excursions, etc, I've lived in the area for over 9 years and am happy to provide insider info and recommendations on what to do and where to go! Ask me about the local hot springs and waterfalls ... these are places even some long time Zihua residents have yet to find ;)
Our international airport is only a fifteen minute ride from my place and you can either opt for a private taxi, local collectivo van or I can arrange to pick you up for a minimal charge.
If you want to have an authentic Zihua experience, meet the locals and get a real taste for the area, you should definitely come stay with me !!
Bienvenidos a Zihuatanejo !
Guests will have access to the kitchen, dining room and living area.
Interaction with guests
I will be present during my guests stay to help orient them here and get them set up with any kind of activities they might be interested in.
Other things to note
I have two kitties (and a foster kitty and foster pup) who will be in and out of the apartment. They are very affectionate and friendly but if you have allergies or don't like animals this may not be the place for you.
The rules of the house are pretty simple. Renters are free to use the common areas and the kitchen. I prefer to rent to non-smokers but there is a garden area outside if you do smoke.
I work from home so I'd be around but mostly working on my computer and listening to music with my headphones on. Basically I just ask that renters keep their area tidy and respect appropriate noise levels (listening to music is fine but blasting pantera at 2am would be pushing it).
There's no curfew, but obviously if you are going to go out and party just try to be quiet when coming back to my place. Oh and please no friends or strangers over.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

I'm originally from NYC but have been living in this pacific coastal paradise for 11 years! I love to surf, scuba dive, sail, snowboard and travel. Basically anything involving the ocean or the mountains is where I am most happy. I have been hosting people and traveling through the airbnb website and I am really enjoying the experience. The place where I live is a real paradise and I look forward to giving guests insider tips and recommendations on local spots and things to do!!
