Yes, this would be a beautiful ecological adventure. Grace's places are styled after the old fashioned way we used to live here... the Zihuatanejo way of life many of us fell in love with on our first visit all those decades ago. Though she does have reliable electricity and water, two things we learned not to count on way back then.
You'll sleep under a mosquito net with only the sounds of the surf and the jungle to lull you to sleep and to wake up to. There are sounds and smells that you just can't appreciate when you sleep in a concrete or cement structure. The mosquitos should not be bad at all there since there is no standing water nearby. They only get to be annoying during the rainy season, and even then nothing that a mosquito coil and a little repellent can't easily handle to keep you comfy. But the mosquitos aren't the only insects you might see, so if you are really squeemish about insects you might like Grace's other property, Villa Palmera, although I doubt you'll find any of our jungle flora & fauna to be anything other than fascinating if you are a nature lover.
The walk to the beach is a piece of cake, about two minutes from the "door" downhill to the water. Not too tiring or steep a walk. And that end of the beach has several restaurants right on the beach where you can have breakfast or any other meals.
These are two absolutely beautiful places that are practically the last of their kind in that area.
