About this listing
Casa Luna is a seaside residence located in a private, enclosed compound about 80-90 yards behind Playa LaRopa beach. Playa LaRopa beach is the best of the four beautiful beach's contained within the bay of Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
The house is surrounded by a spectacular, one acre tropical garden. Casa Luna was designed to blend the best qualities of living in a traditional Mexican countryside villa, together with the open air feeling found in the native seaside tropical dwellings.
The result is a huge, soaring parabolic style roof, comprised of woven thatch and hand hewn hardwoods; suspended above adobe walled rooms trimmed in hand painted tile. The design produces a simultaneous indoor/outdoor effect that captures the sea breezes from nearby Playa LaRopa, affording views of the surrounding gardens from every room; while still allowing for privacy and climate control in individual sleeping quarters. The interior is decorated with country style antiques, Mexican crafts and a sprinkling of intimate works of art left behind by visiting artists.

We had a fantastic time staying at Villa Casa Luna and would recommend it to those looking for an authentic, natural and relaxing Mexican getaway. The house is full of soul and style with authentic Mexican tiles, furniture and ambiance. Amalia (the caretaker) was there daily and helped with cleaning and dishes and was so kind to take me to the market on our first day to go shopping. The house has a fantastic kitchen (the owner is a chef) a great pool and is on its own lush and secure compound only 2 blocks to the beach. The open-air style house was fantastic especially during rainstorms and breezy days but it also allowed for insects and the odd crab or two to come in and hang out which wasn't an issue for us and our curious 4 year old but if your the type who likes air conditioned living quarters and a turn-down service then this probably wouldn't be right for you.
Realmente la casa de Patsy es así de bella como se ve en la foto, llena de detalles de muy buen gusto. La alberca está rodeada de un jardín frondoso que es parte importante de la belleza de la propiedad. Fuimos en semana santa y a pesar de que había mucha gente y movimiento en la playa pudimos descansar muy bien pues entras en la casa y ni sientes el movimiento externo. Patsy estuvo atenta a todos los detalles pero sin embargo respetó nuestra privacidad. La playa de la Ropa está a dos pasos y tienes muchos lugares donde comer rico y el mar es tranquilo . Tuvimos una buena experiencia con ella y con su casa !
Casa Luna is not just a beautiful house in Zihuatanejo, it is a very special place. It's the product of years of love and caring, and you can feel it the minute you very first step in and smell the heavenly garden. Its delicate taste is palpable all around the house and you can feel there is a story behind every object and every flower.
The place is very comfortable and relaxing as the sea breeze blows through a house with almost no walls. The kitchen is a major experience, it reminds me of my grandother's: enormous yet homey and with a very mexican feel to it.
The beach is a three minute walk to Playa La Ropa, but if it gets too crowded for you, the pool in Casa Luna is just the right size, with the right atmosphere.
I can't help but to feel that this place is a fine portrait of the people who built it and have taken care for it for fourty years. Patsy is the sweetest woman, she was an excellent host, and someone you could easily befriend.
Casa Luna and Patsy are beautiful, interesting and moving.
