We Loved It
"From the moment we walked across the koi pond, we were blown away by the unique, and truly special design of the house. From the beautiful sculptures & artwork throughout the house to the bathroom sinks, the overall affect of the house is perfect. We felt so lucky to experience Mexico in such an authentic, yet luxurious, environment. All of the rooms in the main house & tower are extraordinary and so comfortable. Our guests were completely happy with their accommodations. We had plans to get out and do things each day, but the house was so beautiful and comfortable that we found we were more than happy to just stay and relax by the pool and listen to music! We did manage to get into town and do some shopping and found the town to be quaint, friendly, and clean. And the people are very welcoming and nice to talk to, even when our Spanish was pretty rusty. Basically, we loved it! It was a great trip and our friends were very happy to share it with us. We will always remember my 40th birthday and our 10th anniversary at Casa Del Arbol. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a special place to stay in Zihuatenejo, or Mexico for that matter. We hope to get back to sit under the shade of the Whale Tail sometime again."

"The truth is that it gives us great pleasure to have this level of care and service in Mexico. It is also the first occasion that the reality surpasses the photos, because the house is splendid, but definitely the kindness and the service the staff offered to us all - especially Doña Ine - are a plus! We have already recommended the house and hope that we can return in the near future. Thank you again."
The Dragan Family
“Our recent vacation experience at Casa del Arbol can only be described as the ultimate get-away destination. The accommodations and the property itself were so exceptional there was little need to leave. And that's saying a lot given how much there is to do and see in cities and beaches of Zihuatanejo (walking distance) or Ixtapa (15 minute taxi ride). The attention to detail is incredible, from the wireless streaming music system, to the pool-side lounging furniture and decorum, to the expertly manicured tropical landscaping. The view of the bay is gorgeous from virtually every room, patio, deck or balcony.
The entire staff took exceptional care of us from the moment we arrived. Meals were very authentic and simply outstanding. When we did venture outside of Casa del Arbol, the property manager made great recommendations. We also really enjoyed riding on horseback through a coconut plantation to the beaches of Playa Larga.
In a word, Casa del Arbol is ‘amazing’. Everything about our visit exceeded our highest expectations.”

“When I plan either a vacation or an event, I feel that the people I am dealing with can and will perform in the manner they have promised, and that such performance, like all other work product, should not come as a shocking surprise. However, your location, your house and your staff are so stunningly superior to anything that I could have expected, that I cannot let my appreciation and gratitude go unexpressed.”
Los Angeles, CA USA
“Your staff is fantastic and always professional. I continuously marveled how immaculate they maintain the property - we didn't encounter a single insect, inside or out! We all felt completely at peace and everyone agreed we will be returning. Your home is an unforgettable, special place. The photos will be beautiful, but they cannot capture the property's true essence... Casa del Arbol is an experience in itself. You must visit to truly understand.”

A Wonderful Time
“We had a wonderful time during our recent stay at Casa del Arbol. Sometimes I find that a second visit does not live up to the memories of a first visit. Not the case! It was even better than our first visit. The entire staff was accommodating, discreet and gracious.”

We spent four magical days at Casa del Arbol; it was "Paradise!” The chef was extremely gentle, agreeable, always available.
“Thanks so much for the help getting our visit set up. All of the details worked out perfectly. We are hoping to make this trip an annual tradition! Casa del Arbol could not be a more relaxing, renewing, beautiful place to re-charge and re-connect with friends.”

“By day and by night, it was magical, surpassing all our expectations! I loved the zen-like, artistic quality of the home and the constant perfect temperature. Someone was always using the pool or jacuzzi, and the food was awesome! The beaches and the friendly village of Zihua likewise exceeded our expectations, and we hope to return soon! My husband remarked while looking across the beautiful bay, that it all seemed like a dream, and I have to agree.”

Never Been More Relaxed

“Our stay at Casa del Arbol was positively first-class! The service of the staff was excellent. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. The house and the grounds are absolutely stunning. The view of the bay is magnificent. This is by far the best vacation we have ever taken. Thanks very much.”

“Our week-long experience at Casa del Arbol was simply indescribable and like no vacation we’d ever taken. The staff was superb making sure our stay was perfect with authentic Mexican food, drink and hospitality. The view of Zihuatanejo Bay was breathtaking overlooking the infinity pool where we spent the majority of our time relaxing and drinking up the beautiful weather. The actual house was so comfortable and unique we have a hard time explaining it to friends as it has no front door or back door yet is simply amazing nestled high on the side of a mountain! We hope to be able to sneak away again as this was, by far, our best vacation. We now know why Tim McGraw sings, “That’s Why God Made Mexico!”
