Walk to Playa la Ropa and nearby restaurants from this spacious, private bedroom with independent access. Ocotillo Zihuatanejo private room in El Tamarindo at Casa Calamondin family complex includes a fridge and coffeepot with weekly housekeeping and change of bed linens and towels. The room is on the top level of a multi-level walkup property with lovely views of la Ropa area. Guests share a rooftop terrace with hammocks and free WiFi.
The Ocotillo guest room is a spacious, airy, private bedroom with garden access, equipped with queen bed, fan, a/c, table and chairs, bookshelf, coffeepot, and fridge. The bathroom contains a roomy, tiled shower. The space is suitable for 1-2 person occupancy.
The room has plenty of natural light and views over the palms and tropical vegetation of the La Ropa neighborhood. The room is three levels above the main house, so there are a number of stairs to negotiate as you move through the garden from street level. One level below the room is a palapa-thatched terrace with hammocks, table and chairs, free wifi, and splendid views of sunrise and sunset skies.
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 lead up through the garden areas to access each of the upper modules. Cozy comfort and low-key relaxation characterize the home.
Guests can 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
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.
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.

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.
