Overview

Photos and Description of the Cerro del Vigia vacation bungalow rental

A palapa structure located on a large private hillside lot bay view.

Welcome to Alma de artista (soul of the artist)! Located on the hillside overlooking Playa La Ropa beach and the Zihuatanejo Bay, Alma de Artista is a delight for the senses. Surrounded by fragrant gardens, my home is a unique al fresco palapa structure encouraging harmony with nature. Neighbors are local hummingbirds and butterflies.

Nestled in the upper half of a large lot with only two neighboring houses the compound is secure and fenced for privacy. A turquoise infinity edge swimming pool is located steps from your bed and is shared with only one other unit.

The home is the summertime retreat of an ex-pat artist who draws inspiration from being with nature. Alma de Artista is perfect for artists and those looking to refresh their soul.

The space is constructed on two levels. The bedroom suite with king size bed faces the bay and the sky. Breakfast in bed will never be the same again. A tropical hardwood desk space and WiFi are available to connect with your friends and family.

Hidden under a pergola is an open air rain shower with river rock flooring. Adjacent is a private enclosed toilet. The vanity features a re-purposed African bowl used for the sink.

The lower level incorporates a large al fresco living area with guest nest perched over a natural rock. Kitchen amenities include a full size refrigerator, microwave, counter-top convection oven and hammered copper sink. All utensils, cookware and dishes are provided. Drinking water is delivered as needed. Daily housekeeping is included.

Ceiling fans, 20' ceilings and ocean breezes provide a comfortable environment. A washer and dryer are available for guests use. Linens and towels are included.

The owner lives at the far end of the land and is available for any questions you might have. No pets as the owner has a dog and cat on the property. Street parking is available. The entry stairway descends through tropical forest to arrive at my home. As you walk through the gate one first encounters an enclosed Zen garden leading down to the pool area and house. My home is not handicapped accessible as there are stairs.

One can walk to the beach which is about a 15 minute walk. Or via taxi which is available 24 hours a day.

Come experience the sensuous, romantic atmosphere of Alma de Artista. It will be an experience you won't soon forget.
