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.

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.
