Bright and breezy, the roomy and comfortable Anacahuite Zihuatanejo studio in El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin is a short walk from Playa La Ropa. The room is suitable for one to two people on two single beds that easily join into one king; a third person could comfortably sleep on the single sofa bed. Guests have shared access to the lower front terrace with small dipping pool and free WiFi.

The space

Anacahuite furnished studio at El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin has plenty of floor space, a full bath with shower, and glass doors opening onto a balcony surrounded by tropical vegetation. The unit is equipped with two individual beds that can be joined into one king, a desk, table and chairs, sofa-bed, small fridge, microwave, and well-stocked bookshelves.

Although this studio is on low level close to the street, there are some stairs to negotiate. The studio has easy shared access to a wide front terrace with rocking chairs, outdoor dining table, free Wifi, and a small Jacuzzi-like dipping pool.

Guest access

Four separate buildings house independent apartments and rooms in the El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin family complex that winds up a slope from street level. A pathway and a series of exterior stairways wind up through the garden areas to access each of the modules. Cozy comfort and low-key relaxation characterize the home.

There are two entrances onto different sections of the property, and guests are able to access the rental units via exterior walkways and stairs without having to go through the main residence. Every room and apartment has independent access from the exterior.

For outdoor lounging, guests have shared access to a rooftop palapa-thatched terrace that overlooks the tropical greenery of La Ropa and affords lovely sunrise and sunset views.

Depending on family occupancy and other rental conditions, renters staying at El Tamarindo may be granted access to the front terrace and dipping pool of the main house.

There is free WiFi on both the upper rooftop terrace and the lower terrace of the main house.

Interaction with guests

Family is sometimes in residence in the main house, and other guests and family may share the front terrace and dipping pool, so at times we do all hang out together. Generally, though, peaceful relaxation and few human distractions reign within the property.

The administration office is located on the property. I am usually in on weekdays between 10 am and 6 pm (but I often escape the fetters of the clock and take off at unorthodox hours). The house manager, Felisa, checks the house daily, and we are both available by phone and email.

Other things to note

Once-per-week bed linen and towel changes are included. Your room will be delivered thoroughly cleaned, and we include an initial supply of drinking water, soap, and toilet tissue for your arrival. Extra drinking water is available for purchase.

We do not have television or public land-line phone service at El Tamarindo.

We do not have public laundry facilities on the property. There are reliable local laundry services available that provide will pick-up and deliver. Ask us.

There's ample street parking in front of the house.

El Tamarindo was a very nice place to visit. Clrean, neat and quiet. Great location, could walk to l Playa Ropa in less than ten minutes, the town center was a relatively easy one mile walk and the best beach, Los Gatos was also an easy walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Carol was a kind, welcoming and unobtrusive host :)

I really enjoyed my stay at El Tamarindo. It's a great location, just a few minutes from the beach, and a lovely early morning walk into town (about 30-40 minutes). The "cambio" (little buses) will stop right outside on those days when you need one. The room was spacious and just as pictured, providing plenty of fresh air when the french balcony doors were opened. An overhead fan and a/c were useful in cooling the place in the late afternoon. I loved the fact that there were a couple of restaurants within minutes, including LOOT, two doors down, which featured music many evenings, and El Gringo Gordo, which had music on Sunday night. Carol, and Felicia the manager were welcoming and helpful. Cooking is limited, with just a microwave, refrigerator, and coffeepot, but if you're a vacationer who really doesn't want to cook, this is perfect for one or two people.

La casa está bien ubicada, a la orilla de la calle donde es muy fácil tomar taxis o buses que van hacia el centro, se puede llegar caminando a la playa Las Ropas en 5 min, además queda muy cerca de la playa Las Gatas que es una de las playas más bonitas. La casa en sí es bastante acogedora, y tanto Carol como Felisa, estuvieron muy pendientes de que nuestra estadía fuese agradable.

La casa es cómoda, la estancia fue buena, playa La Ropa está cerca caminado, aunque la zona es un poco obscura de noche, no obstante el lugar es relájate, y cumplió con nuestras expectativas de descanso.

La casa es muy linda y el cuarto muy funcional. Total privacía. Hay detalles muy interesantes como el acceso a la biblioteca de la casa. La limpieza y los elementos básicos fueron satisfactorios. Para los amantes de las mascotas la compañía de Domi es un plus. Tanto Carol como Felisa, quienes alternan las funciones de ser anfitrionas, son muy cordiales y amables. La ubicación es excelente. Se puede ir caminando con toda tranquilidad a todas las playas de Zihuatanejo. Al mismo tiempo alejada lo suficiente del bullicioso centro de Zuhua, al cual se puede llegar en no más de quince minutos, en transporte privado o público. La señal wi-fi es accesible en la terraza de uso común, ojalá pronto mejoren la cobertura para que llegue directamente a la habitación. Muy recomendable.

Zihuatanejo, MexicoJoined in April 2015
Carol User Profile

Welcome to the west coast of Mexico and beautiful Zihuatanejo Bay. Zihuatanejo has been my home since the mid-1990s, although I first fell in love with it while visiting it with my family in 1969 when it was but a tiny and dusty fishing village.

El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin is a family compound completed in the early 2000s. Much of the family currently lives elsewhere in Mexico and in Canada, leaving the cozy rooms and apartments of this somewhat sprawling tropical home available for rental and sharing -- a perfect AirBNB opportunity.

Zihuatanejo has always held a special place in our hearts, and we have found that it becomes equally special for almost all the friends and visitors who've spent time with us over the years. Maybe it's time for you to discover Zihuatanejo, too!

Interests and passions are books (there is plenty of reading material at the Tamarindo!), gardening (mainly vegetables), enjoying our incredible beaches (and for my husband, surfing), and, of course, travel both within Mexico and abroad. When we can't get out onto the road ourselves, we're happy to listen the stories of world adventure from our guests, especially while sitting out in the rocking chairs on the front terrace of El Tamarindo.
