NO! I DON’T WANT TO GO!
We had such a great two weeks in Zihua and the last week at Zanzibar
was the high life. We Spent a lot of time here soaking up the view, sound
of the waves and the atmosphere of the villa.
I was so impressed by the architecture and attention to detail, BRAVO!
Thanks for the memories cheers

Thank you very much for a fantastic stay! Everything was beyond our expectations.
The kids had a wonderful time too! Don't change a thing and never get
rid of Natie. She was great! Andrea, Neil and Heather Neudorffe
A surprising jewel on the hillside of Playa La Ropa! What a wonderful
experience and change from tropical hotel travel. A tropical hideaway
for a week of good food, fun and great friends. Early morning walks/jogs
along the beach to start the day and cocktails at sunset. Thanks for
the memories. Pam and Al Brower - Gig Harbor, Wa.
At the end of a perfect 2 weeks, we have nothing but praise for Villa
Zanzibar. As long time visitors to Zihua, staying in this marvelous
house away from home has given a whole new perspective on this wonderful
spot. Although the town is changing fairly rapidly, Playa La Ropa stays
the same - Villa Zanzibar provides a fine retreat in the middle of
endless days of doing nothing. Best of all, however has been sitting
here with binoculars at hand watching the birds, butterflies, squirrels,
dogs and cats and all the activities in the bay and on the beach.
¡Viva Villa Zanzibar!

Just wanted to drop a note to tell you we loved our stay in Zihua. The
people were friendly, the weather great, and Villa Zanzibar worked out
great! Hope to see you again. Let me know what next year at the same
time will look like. Take care and thanks.

It was such a pleasure meeting you both and spending a week in your beautiful
villa! It was an experience we will never forget. We can't thank you
enough for sharing a part of your wonderful lifestyle with us. We also
want to thank your staff for taking such good care of us! They are all
gems! Thanks again for everything!

Lois and David,
We had a great time. We've been to Zihuatanejo before, but never to Villa
Zanzibar - thanks for everything! Renting a house is the way to go! We
came from Chicago and L.A. This trip was definitely worth it.
Allie, Katie, Mike, Debbie, Linda
Villa Zanzibar is a perfect spot, to enjoy the sea and a spectacular
view day and night. Despite the heat, we were comfortable with fans
and natural breezes.
See you next trip - Thanks for your good design on building Villa Zanzibar.
What a wonderful tree house with such a fabulous view, amenities and
of course, Natie!
We are probably the only people who have used the villa for a working
week. However, the location and space was perfect for our meetings and
planning we look forward to our return and to been your new neighbors.
Susan, Joanne, Barb, Glen & Daniel.
The house was everything you said it was and a bit, we really enjoyed
and we can't wait to come back here! Where do we recommend you go?
Stay right here and cook your own food bought at the market, enjoy
the sunset. Thanks to David and Lois for making us feel welcome. Linda

The Christmas cookies were fabulous Lois.
Sincerely, The Ojalas
Lois and David Shawn and I both really enjoyed the visit here in your
beautiful “tree house” The view was incredible and seen
all the different animals, including a large iguana in the trees around
us was a treat.
Thank you for all the wonderful memories here in beautiful Zihuatanejo.
We will definitely be back with more friends.
Now all I can say is I wish we another week.
It Will be hard going back to reality.

What a place to be marooned we love Natie’s treats.

Spent 4 wonderful nights. The Full moon setting over the bay at pre-dawn
is worth getting up for.
Natie was very helpful, pleasant and un-intrusive.
Also Stayed at a five star hotel and thought here was much more private
and with more character.
Thanks Lois and David For providing such a comfortable relaxing place

We had the best 4 days here. Our second time - enjoyed sharing this lovely
home with friends from Seattle and New Jersey. Ron and Helen Reed
What a wonderful 10 days in our Mexican Hacienda. Villa Zanzibar was
a treat for all seven of us. Except for a rare winter rain storm one
night, everything else is indescribable. Certainly a vacation that
needs to be experienced first hand. Any apprehension from looking over
the internet certainly dissolves upon arrival. We had a great time
and it was everything we imagined. We hope to be back again. Zihua!
La Ropa! It's the best! Mary Beth Frank, Donna, Dorothy, Eric, Michael
A beautiful setting for a great week with our great friends from Gig
Harbor and Boston. Cards, chess, sailing, jet ski's - great food prepared
here and in the restaurants. Thanks for the good sound system as well.
We will cherish our time here as one of our best vacations (and we have
traveled the world)! Thanks again - John and Barbara Wa.
Dear David and Lois,
We are taking many memorable thoughts and feelings from our brief stay
at Villa Zanzibar. Having our initial interest stirred by your internet
site, I did not think the ambiance of Villa Zanzibar was expressed in
your advertisement. The vine wrapped columns, tree -trunk-supported staircase,
alligator floor murals, built-in fixture create and architecture jewel.
More important than the physical comfort and beauty of "slice of
paradise" was the personal interest both of you gave to us. Thank
you for meeting us at the airport, giving us a guided tour through central
Zihuatanejo and making sure all our needs were met. Nati's thorough attention
to the villa Cleanliness added "the sweet icing to a delicious cake".
Best wishes, Pearce and Leighton Reeve
What a wonderful fantasy - spend a week in beautiful Mexico in our outdoor
house nestled in the treetops with a view of the beach, crystal blue
water and the cliffs. Thank you for making this fantasy come true! Your
casa is fantastic!
Thanks again, David Zlotchin - San Francisco
Our 28 hour travel from Australia was immediately forgotten once we stepped
into your little piece of paradise - Villa Zanzibar. We loved the limonada,
fruit salads and salsas from wonderful Natie (would like to take her
home). Our very favorite thing to do was relaxing at Villa Zanzibar
soaking up the views with a cerveza.
Jeff & Robin Feuerheerdt, Julie & Bole McBroom - Australia
We had an awesome vacation. Just what we needed to relax. Lois and David,
thank you so much.

We had a great vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!! Villa Zanzibar provided a great
little paradise "get away".
An excellent web page led us to this great spot. The peaceful, poetic
sunsets are breathtaking with enough evening breeze to cool the villa.
It deserves a haiku:

Twinkling city light"
