our story

Scott & Shari Crawford always had a great love of Mexico. Year after year they found themselves spending their vacations in Mexico. Scott, being an accomplished doctor in Arizona, was getting closer to retirement and they started thinking of creating their dream retirement home in Mexico. The first thing they did was create a wish list of all the things they wanted in a beach home in Mexico: it needed to be close to an international airport, outside of town but not isolated, on a beautiful beach, in nature and it needed to be west facing for glorious sunsets. In 1996 they went back to Zihuatanejo on vacation and some local friends took them for a picnic on Playa Blanca. They instantly fell in love with the area. They started looking at their list and realized that Playa Blanca had everything they wanted. They took a deep breath and decided that Playa Blanca was the place for them to build their dream home. The first thing they did was find the best architect in Zihuatanejo. After looking at several properties and talking to several people it was clear that Enrique Zozaya was the perfect architect for them. They started making plans. Since this was going to be a vacation home they wanted to enjoy it. They

didn’t want to worry about the house while they were gone and they didnt want to spend their vacations repairing things or paying bills. They wanted the best of both worlds: the freedom of vacation home ownership with the ease of hotel vacations. Enrique suggested that they build a few rooms that they could rent out. This would allow them to pay for a staff who would take care of all the maintenance and repairs and it also allowed them to receive all the comforts and luxuries of a hotel. It was the best of both worlds and provided them everything they needed to complete their dream home.

“The Hotel is just beautifull, so much detail and attention is put into everything... It feels so much more like someone’s private vacation home that you have been invited to. “
