Surrounded by tropical gardens, the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre Mountains this modern-day tree house offers a tranquil atmosphere to ponder the natural beauty of Zihuatanejo and the beautiful crescent-shaped bay. Completed in 1999, the luxury villa seamlessly integrates natural materials like a palapa roof, exotic hardwoods and adobe bricks which characterize the Costa Grande style with conveniences like wireless internet access, a stereo system and a large-screen television with a satellite connection. With 6 well-appointed suites and 7½ bathrooms Casa del Arbol accommodates up to 12 guests. Regardless of the number of guests, this villa is only rented to private groups. Children are welcome, but parents are advised to consider the dangers of the balconies, pools and open terraces. A staff of five employees cleans the rooms daily and prepares complimentary breakfasts. Lunches and dinners are prepared from a menu which is chosen before arrival.
Together, the active fishing village of Zihuatanejo and the resort destination of Ixtapa offer the best of old and new Mexico. Relaxation by the sea and aquatic activities are the emphasis in these coastal towns. Visitors travel to Zihuatanejo to relax at the beautiful beaches and explore the restaurants and shops along el Centro's cobblestone streets. Almost all of the hotels and restaurants surrounding the bay are within walking distance of each other. Just five miles from Zihuatanejo, Ixtapa is located on superb beachfront with a string of hotels along the ocean. Two challenging 18-hole golf courses, a marina lined with waterfront restaurants, and a 6-mile paved bicycle path are just a few of the attractions.
Zihuatanejo has its own international airport. Taxi drivers wait curbside to bring guests to Casa del Arbol, which is only 15 minutes from the airport.
