Why Elsa Sale chose Zihuatanejo
After cruising the Mexican Riviera for years, seeking the perfect spot to build our home, we arrived in Zihuatanejo Bay, and instantly knew that we had found it!
What makes this Villa unique
It is inside a large gated development with a handful of other custom-built homes, with maximum 24/7 security and privacy. Our home faces the beautiful mountains beyond the bay, daily spectacular sunrise views, early fishing boat traffic, as well as front-row seating for enjoying nature's never ending beauty and sounds.

Magical Oasis in Zihuatanejo!
Photos don't do this place justice. It is bigger and even more beautiful than the photographs show. We were only there for 7 days but it was 7 of the most relaxing days, I have ever had.... the Staff was perfect, attentive when needed and discreet and away when not. Chef Lidia kept us full day and night... we absolutely LOVED her cooking! Elsa, our host, was easy to communicate with and addressed all our concerns before arrival and our needs during our stay. She went above and beyond by helping us to book a boat excursion and dinner reservations... seriously, I can't say enough good about this place. It was pure PARADISE, I hope to go back again one day!
Wow, wow, wow! That is basically all I said as I entered the front door when we all (10 total) arrived to celebrate our long-time friend's 50th birthday. It was difficult to decide which room was "the best" because they all were pretty spectacular. I really loved the décor of the house as it wasn't the traditional "Spanish" décor but it had an African theme. In each room, Elsa (the owner) had a book explaining the story of how she chose this décor. Loved it! The pool was relaxing and clean. There were always plenty of clean towels to use while hanging out in the pool or just laying down soaking in the sun and beautiful scenery.
The staff was awesome too. It was great to have the opportunity to use my Spanish that I had been taught many years ago. Some may find the language barrier a challenge, but I personally like experiencing the culture of where I am visiting. The staff and our group all did a fine job communicating, so we had no problems. I would recommend utilizing the cook and staff (Diana and Jessie) to prepare the meals while staying. The table was always decorated beautifully whether it was for breakfast or for dinner. (We did our own thing for lunch) I personally felt that the meals we had at the house were better than any of the places we went to in town. Juanita and Rosario, the housekeeping staff, were like little fairies coming in and cleaning the rooms each morning. I always wondered how and when they got in to clean the rooms, but the bed was always made and fresh towels were placed in the bathrooms without us ever seeing them! Nestor, the house manager, was also very good about offering help whenever needed and always with a smile!
I am sorry to say, but I would have been completely happy staying at the house the whole week! We did go to La Ropa beach for the day and into town for a few trips to the store, but I longed to be back at El Conde, sitting by the pool and looking at the beautiful view. (Oh! I almost forgot! They had a telescope that we could look at boats and people in the water which was very cool the morning of the fishing derby!)
If you want to experience a relaxing time and feel like you are in a 5-star place, make your plans to come here. You will not be disappointed!
Wow, indeed, two reviews from the same group! A first at Casa El Conde, thank you!!
We are so glad your group had a good time, enjoying long-time friendships. We appreciate your compliments to our staff, our home, and to our beautiful Zihuatanejo Bay. And, to have front-row seating to view the fishing derby, must have been special!
Thank you again for your wonderful review and we hope to see you again soon!
Our Best to you all,
Little piece of Paradise !!!
I'm not sure where to start. From the beginning of booking the villa through our departure, Elsa was extremely responsive and helpful in setting everything up and working out the details. The house is absolutely breathtaking!!!! The minute you walk through the gate you can see the pride in ownership and stunning beauty this house offers. Each room is decorated with such attention to detail and offers complete privacy for the guests. Our biggest hurdle of the week was deciding on which room to choose as they are all so beautiful. Her staff is absolutely wonderful. Nestor, the house manager watches over everything to ensure a seemless visit. Juanita and Rosario work so hard behind the scenes keeping the villa spotless and keeping the rooms fully stocked. We had Diana and Jessie to cook for us and would recommend them over and over again. Of all the meals we had while in Zihuatanejo the ones we had cooked by Diana and Jessie were the best. They created a different masterpiece each night with the table setting and the food presentation, it was beyond compare. Elsa and Chuck, thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home and letting us enjoy a little piece paradise ♥️
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, and for choosing our home to be your home while visiting beautiful Zihuatanejo! I will pass on your kind words to the staff; they appreciated all your compliments (en Español!), and generosity during your visit. We hope to see you again very soon. Have a wonderful summer.
Our best to all of you.
Elsa and Chuck Sale
Don't think twice, BOOK IT!
Wow, this place is absolutely breathtaking. We visited Casa El Conde after raving reviews from friends and were so thankful we did. From the moment you enter the gated neighborhood, you feel like you're in a movie. The entrance into the home feels like a dream. The open layout and beautiful thoughtful decor makes you never want to leave. I typically like to explore a lot when I'm on vacation but I had a hard time wanting to leave the home. The rooms are so peaceful and relaxing. So pretty! The outdoor bathrooms are dreamy. The staff was so sweet and made us delicious food and even freshened up the space with new floral bouquets each day.I could go on and on about all the things I loved about this home. We hope to be able to go back soon.
Hi guys! Thanks for the wonderful review! It was fun working with you and are glad you had a great time at our home. My staff thanks you for kind comments as well.
We hope to see you again soon; until then, we wish you all great health!
Front row views of Zihua's beautiful bay
Just spent an entire month at Casa el Conde. The house (and it's staff) exceeded all expectations. Elsa (the owner) took every opportunity to make our trip memorable. We mentioned to staff one evening that we were looking for a "crockpot" to prepare a special dish. The next day we were surprised to find one in the kitchen. Elsa had sent someone down to the market (unbeknownst to us) to pick one up. Over the years we have stayed at several of the homes surrounding Zihua's picturesque bay. Casa el Conde is the top of the food chain. The views, furnishings, bedding are all five star. I can not articulate properly how special this place is. Truly special....
Thank you for such a wonderful review! It is a pleasure to have guests like you and your family, who appreciate the efforts of our staff and treated our home as if it were your own. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future!
Home sits atop rocks; there is no beach. Nearest beach is La Ropa, across the bay, fifteen minutes by car. La Ropa Beach offers various beach activities, such as parasailing, hobie-cat sailing. No surfing on this beach---it's a bay.
