Barbara’s Quinta rental room details

The Space

I stayed at Quinta for six weeks in 2015 and 9 weeks in 2016 I loved Quinta so much that I will be there from Jan 21- April 1 , 2017. I rented the entire top floor which is two bedrooms with private baths and a fabulous open air kitchen equipped with everything you need to create your meals and a lovely table to eat them on.

I am renting the second bedroom BY THE WEEK for $55 – $65 a night. In 2017, I will be the Artist-In-Residence for Quinta. I will hold an open studio once a week by appointment. Studio fee charged for supplies. I taught art for 40 years and I am a professor at Bemdiji State University in Minnesota. You can vet me by searching my name Barbara Rogers Bridges.

Guest Access

You will have access to the top floor and the pool. The hotel is gated and very secure. Your room has a lock. I am an online professor and I taught my class online. The wifi connection was excellent.

Interaction with Guests

Quinta Camelinas is in the perfect location, a five minute walk to town, a 10 minute walk to La Ropa (a beautiful beach with rolling waves) and located in a real Mexican neighborhood with a cacophony of roosters to waken me and a fully stocked tienda ½ a block away. The tienda is like an old style general store with everything, and I mean everything, you could possibly need. At Quinta, Natasha has created a most wonderful combination of authentic Mexican experience and lovely oasis. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the little pool when I arrived home soaked to the skin from my latest adventure. The fully equipped kitchen and the daily maid service combine to make everything stress free. Now we have a small restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Tonio’s!

The Neighborhood

Arriving in Zihuatanejo on March 1, 2015 was memorable because my little street, Rio Balsas, was so obscure that even the taxi driver did not know where it was. I learned to tell everyone I lived a block from the Estacion de Bomberos (the fire station). I watched the Bomberos do their morning workout on la playa Madera on my morning walk. What a job the Bomberos have!

NOTE: Quinta is NOT ON THE WATER but is a 5 minute walk away. Quinta is in a real Mexican neighborhood with roosters and dogs and kids right outside the gate.

Getting Around

They have pasejo buses running up and down the beach and a ride is $1.00 US. A taxi is ALWAYS available and every ride is $2.50 U.S.

The Zihua hotel zone (which Quinta is on the edge of) is high up over the bay ( incredible sunset views) so the walking is up and down to the beach and the town.

Other Things to Note

The people who stay at Quinta were all lovely. We organized a Mexican potluck several times and it was not unusual to have 5 different languages being spoken at the table.
