“True Zihua style”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

By Zihua style, I mean beautiful view, nice indoor/outdoor access and everything that goes with it. Everything in the listing description is accurate. Place is huge and terraces are great. The service from Sherwin was impeccable, and I would has no hesitation recommending this to friends. Because it was rainy season (which we like) and so hot and humid, activities limited to walking the town, shopping and eating. Sherwin has prepared a great guide to town and we dedicated ourselves to eating thru his restaurant list [we have been to Zihua about 15 times but were many we had not tried]. Bottom line, if he likes it, you will like it. Won't tell you our two favourites because even in low season (and September is DEAD) they were full. We are going to shamelessly steal some of the décor ideas that you do not realize are simple but great until someone else has done it. We used the driver Luis recommended and service was just great. Can't wait to get back to the area.

Thank you Lorne and Colleen! We are always humbled by guests who 'get it.' We keep pinching ourselves, never taking for granted the beauty and pleasure we experience not only in our home, but in lovely Zihuatanejo. Glad you liked one of our fave restaurants for lunch, Carmelita's. It's a hidden gem. Come visit us again soon!

“Outstanding apt. w/ breathtaking views!”

That was a spectacular stay at your unique and well equipped casa, Thank you Sherwin and Peg!

Upon arrival their assistant greeted us with a tour of the airy art filled casa and showed us the amenities. The 2 outdoor spaces and spectacular views were very conducive to both relaxing or having dinner and drinks on. We were also provided with homemade guacamole and salsa and some refreshments which was a nice touch for the first day, as we arrived without any groceries.

We totally appreciated the music system; read two of your books; used the washing machine; cooked a dinner for 10 people; ordered pizza in; had too many cocktails on the decks; watched the Olympics and the DVD on Owen but didn't swim in the large pool with waterfall at all – why, La Ropa beach was right there(5 minute walk down the hill)! Loved just hanging out in the comfortable, spacious and gorgeous apartment.

Call a taxi or take bus from down the hill and get your groceries from town. We even walked to town along La Ropa in the cooler mornings. A short 15 min walk along a rocky trail and you are at Las Gatas Beach. Restaurants, drinks and beach chairs everywhere, take your pick. What a great holiday!

Thank you Wan. We love to surprise our guests with treats. We're glad you enjoyed the amenities and got to know and enjoy Zihuatanejo. Glad you enjoyed the music system, as music is very important to us. That's partly why we call it House of the Singing Tree. It enhances the magic that is already here. Z is a great place and we hope you'll be back.

“Like staying at home, but with the most spectacular view you can imagine”

Step out onto the patio and take in the view. Just remember to breathe. Third time to Zihua and second time as guests to the "Sing Tree". I have to say its become home away from home. It has all the amenities. Throw on some vacation music over the patio speakers and relax and enjoy this view. Make breakfast at the condo then head down the hill to one of the best beaches in Mexico. Look for Victoria at the Arena Restuarante. She will keep you in Cervesas. Snack on Shrimp or fish tacos, even the Hamberguesa is great. Wander back up the hill to the condo, enjoy some wine on the patio and then head out to any of a number of fantastic restaurants in Zihua. Sherwin and Peg hooked us up wit h a great Cab driver named Luis who also took us on a day trip to a newly found Pyramid. He was very knowledgeable as our guide thru the whole trip Newell worth it. Luis has a larger cab so he can handle bigger groups and can also get a suburban for groups of six or more and their luggage.
We are already booked agin for next year. Countdown is on.

Liked best: It's a wonderfully decorated place, but with that view, you never spend any time inside
Liked least: Not a place for people with disabilities, lots of stairs. Good exercise though. You can earn some extra calories for supper

Thank you TIm. Glad it feels like home to you too. Happy you 'guys' will be coming back next year. I see that you are certainly getting the hang of it. That is what it's for... kicking back and enjoying being "off duty."

It's very cool that you got out to the "new" archeological site, Xihuacan. Fascinating stuff. Glad Luis gave you a good tour. He's a great resource.
By the way, Casa del Arbol Cantando means House of The Singing Tree." A name that comes from our love of music (Peg sings too) and also honor of our tree in the entrance. (I'm happy to be in our casa now.) See you next year!

Dear Karen & Joe,

Thank you for the very kind review.
Sharing the magic of Zihua and our home is rewarding when it is so appreciated. It is a very special place, to be sure. We are blessed to have it and share it.
(FYI, there is now a baking sheet in the oven!)
We look forward to having you back soon.

Saludos Tropicales,
Sherwin & Peggy
