Casa Sandbar exceeded our expectations is every way! It’s true what everyone says, the photos don’t do it justice. Barry and Sandra knocked it out of the park in every way. The condo was exquisite. The views are breathtaking. The location cannot be beat. Five min walk to La Ropa beach and 10 min walk to town. There is a taxi stand a 2 min walk away, or if you prefer they will call their trusted taxi man directly to the Casa. The condo was immaculately clean and tidied beautifully daily by the sweet Lety. Edgar was more than helpful to us on several occasions and you always feel extra safe knowing they are on the property to assist or answer questions. The condo is furnished with high end appliances and has everything you need to prepare meals and margaritas! The infinity pool was such a special treat every evening for sunset. We loved that Barry designed it so there was a shared bar, refrigerator, restroom, loungers and bistro sets downstairs so that you never have to walk back up for anything when you are enjoying the pool area. It was very convenient to have fresh drinking water provided. Edgar was happy to refill the ceramic whenever we needed more. All the little things add up, like high-end paper towels and toilet paper, pre-made ice trays, top of the line appliances and furniture, sharp knives, good water pressure, bottled water in every room, toiletries, plentiful ceiling fans, clean and sufficient AC units, drying racks for towels & swim suits, super clean salt water pool to name a few. Barry and Sandra have made this place spectacular with their incredible attention to all the details. Casa Sandbar is a gem and we will absolutely return.

Sandra and Barry were fantastic hosts with amazing accommodation. Casa Sandbar has one of the best views in Zihua. You are steps to La Ropa beach and a 15 min walk into town. Our unit's main living was area open to the outside and very well equipped. We also had a private "cool down pool" which was perfect for the mid day heat, there was also an infinity pool in the main guest area. The building is new and designed to take advantage of the fantastic views. I would recommend staying at Casa sandbar without hesitation and look forward to visiting again.

I researched for a year for the perfect place for my 60th birthday. We were drawn to the beautiful laid back town of Zihuatanejo and subsequently to Casa Sandbar. As said in prior reviews, you can’t beat the view from the open living room. When we arrived from the airport, we were greeted by the owners of this 5 condo building. They made sure we knew everything we needed to know about the room and surroundings. Prior arrangements were made to have beer stocked in the fridge upon our arrival. The room was amazing. Open air living room with a beautiful view of the bay. Sunsets every night were gorgeous. The building is built on a cliff but is located between 2 awesome beaches that are totally different from each other. The on-site staff, Juan Jose and Lety, take great pride in assisting with anything needed. The people of Zihua are very accommodating, The food in the area is amazing. Although the condo has a fully equipped kitchen, there are so many eateries within walking distance. We visited 5 awesome beaches in 10 days. 85 degrees and sunny every day. Would definitely return.

It is said that first impressions can make or break a relationship. The same can be said for a vacation property. That first impression when you walk in the door can be the start of a spectacular vacation. This is exactly what Casa Sandbar provides! The owners and staff will greet you and you instantly feel incredibly welcome. Then as you arrive in your condo, and need to regain your breathing because the view will leave you breathless, take a moment to appreciate the details that have gone into the build of this gorgeous property. Your condo has everything you need, from a well appointed kitchen to the most comfortable bed you have probably ever slept in (and will ever sleep in) anywhere in Mexico. The staff keep the property spotless, and the owners are extremely quick to respond to any questions or recommendations you may have. The location is between La Ropa and La Madera Beaches with both beaches mere minutes by foot. The town is also not far to walk. Down the hill at the taxi stand, and a beautiful walk on the sea wall will have you in town in about 10-15 minutes. Do yourself a favour and stop looking for other properties in Zihua...this is the place. My husband and I are very seasoned travelers and don't hand out 5 star recommendations very often, but we would not hesitate to recommend Casa Sandbar. Thank you to Barry, Sandra and their staff for making our stay extremely comfortable.

Just spent 2 fantastic weeks at Casa Sandbar. What can we say that hasn’t already been said about this gem of a place. Great location & beautiful view of the bay; open air living with full kitchen and in-suite plunge pool; king size bed with very comfortable mattress; short walk to incredible La Ropa beach; walking distance to great restaurants and downtown market and shopping areas; taxi stands close by if you don’t want to walk and lots of sunshine & great weather - 30 Celsius every day! We’ve stayed at a lot of vacation resorts and rentals and we can truly recommend Casa Sandbar as being the Best of the Best. You won’t be disappointed by staying at this wonderful place. Many thanks to Barry and Sandra for their incredible hospitality.

Recently stayed in the two bedroom unit with another couple traveling with us. The condo had excellent kitchen and common area facilities. The view from the deck is amazing. Everything about the units at Casa Sandbar are of the highest quality. The staff are attentive yet respectful of your privacy. We were touring Mexico on motorcycles and they were a mess after four weeks on the road. We woke up the next day to find the caretaker washing our bikes by hand. Later I had laundry bundled up to take to the laundromat, but they stopped us and offered to do it right there on the premises. The building is on a cliff overlooking Zihuatanejo bay, so no beach front. However, it is located between the two most popular beaches to either side and are within walking distance. There are some nice restaurants nearby and one is next door. I would highly recommend casa Sandbar to anyone that does not relish staying in a resort hotel type environment. Hope to return someday soon.

We love to travel on our own and do it a lot. Every now and then we find a treasure and this time it was Casa Sandbar. It has only 5 units so it’s quiet and private, no TVs, no radios, no clocks, no road noise. Our living area had an open wall ((with rail) to the bay/ocean; the bedroom had a large picture window to the bay/ocean; and the bathroom was open to our own dipping pool and the bay/ocean (without loss of privacy). We spent a lot of time just enjoying the breathtaking views. The location is picture perfect on a cliff with continual crashing waves. It was an easy walk down to the beaches and the central part of town. We took one of the many taxis back up to our room for only $2. Zihua is a wonderful town; not too big but with lots of wonderful restaurants, shopping, and services, including a wondrous Mecado Central Market, an area historical museum and huge crafts market. Also take the fun catamaran dinner cruise. Another thing we liked was that it isn’t a surfing/party town. The uncrowded beaches were populated by local families and Canadian vacationers creating a safe, mellow atmosphere. The on-site Canadian owners were quick to respond to inquiries and gave us all kinds of helpful information. Once we got there, they was available for any need, including stocking the kitchen before we arrived if we wished. They made sure there were ice cubes in the freezer and a cold pitcher of water in the refrigerator. The staff was awesome. Lety always had a friendly smile and unobtrusively cleaned our unit daily, making sure everything was replenished including fresh coffee and an urn of drinking water. Juan Jose was helpful in so many ways: taking care of any little fixes, going downtown to get us fresh local coffee beans to take home, getting taxis for us, being our guide for the parthenon to list a few. He was fun to talk to and we learned a lot about the local area from him. So we say to them all, thank you so much for a wonderful experience. We hope to see you again.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!! Building....., view......., owners.....staff! You won't be disappointed! This was our second time to Zihua and this place has it all and more than you could expect! Barry & Sandra were great from the initial contact to when we had to leave. They have built an amazing oasis to enjoy the beautiful views and the stunning sunsets plus they have ensured that your stay is absolutely perfect! Theres's nothing like waking up in a comfortable bed, listening to the waves and watching beautiful bay. It's perfectly situated so you have great access to either La Ropa or Madera beaches. The condo is well equipped and has everything you might need if you want to cook up a little something! You will never be disappointed at Casa Sandbar!

We recently returned from our Christmas Vacation in Zihuatanejo. We loved Casa Sandbar. What a view! Located 5 minutes from La Ropa beach and 10 minutes from La Madera, the location was excellent. The unit was fully equipped and very clean. The only draw back was we had difficulty getting to the beach in the morning as we were too comfortable relaxing in the suite! Thanks to Barry, Sandra and Juan for being wonderful hosts.

Casa #5. Top of the world! Large 2 bedroom suite with all the amenities. Fully functional kitchen (great for breakfasts, lunch and dinners), fantastic king sized beds,A/C, spacious bathrooms, very clean and well maintained. Outstanding view of the bay, with turtles and jumping fish all within view. The sounds of the surf on the rocks below becomes a wonderfully soothing and relaxing back drop. A walk to the Centro Mercado allowed us to stock up on vegetables, fresh shrimps, cervazas, wine and all the fixings for relaxing days at the top of the hill. A short walk down to La Ropa beach for warm ocean swims added to the locations perks. Having not traveled to Mexico before, I was impressed by the friendliness of local businesses and restaurants. It was also wonderful to have Canadian owners to be able to ask questions to. Can't wait to return!
