Zihuatanejo condo description
From the time you arrive at Vista Bahia you will witness the view 'Wow Factor'. From our huge front terrace, living and dining area and each bedroom you have extensive views of the beach, bay, city and ocean. Our 2,300 Sq.Ft, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condominium is located on the 5th floor of this 6 floor complex over looking La Ropa Beach.
One of our nicest features are the folding glass doors that span across the living area and separate the living area from the terrace. Fold them up and you have a very large room that with the breezes and ceiling fans make air conditioning usually not needed. If it is still too warm ceiling fans and air conditioning are in each room.
A complete modern kitchen with granite counter tops and plenty of room make cooking an easy pleasure. The kitchen is part of the living area so you can entertain and prepare meals at the same time. Six people can dine inside or outside on the large terrace. Or at any number of fine restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the condo. There is a water purification system that provides drinking water to all inside water taps. The condo has white marble floors inside and hand made terracota tiles on the terraces. Each bathroom has a huge marble walled shower and marble counter tops. Each bedroom has a king pillow top bed with Casablanca type doors that when open view the entire bay, beach, city and ocean.
You are close enough to the beach to here the waves lapping softly yet not over whelming. Security consists of a safe in each bedroom, a electronic key coded entry gate, inside private elevator and a night security guard. The 2nd floor is taken up by our very large infinity pool that views the entire bay, beach, ocean and city. A covered table and seating area at the pool works well with Margaritas and food during the day or at sunset.
From the condo you can watch all the beach activities including swimmers, banana boat rides, skiers, para sailers, boats coming and going, jet skiers, water skiers, hobby cat sail boats and about twice a week during the winter months a Cruise Ship will anchor for the day. The bay and surrounding area offers many options for snorkling, diving, shopping and fishing. You can spend an afternoon on the catamaran 'Picante' for snorkeling or for an evening sunset cruise.
Ixtapa offers quite a night life, two great Pete Dye golf courses, more shopping and restaurants, a marina full of boats from all over the world and Ixtapa Island where you can spend the day at a beach restaurant and snorkel. Taxi's are cheep and numerous. Our condo can be rented as a one bedroom studio with a microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender and small refrigerator. The studio has it's own TV with satellite service, DVD/cd player and phone. This studio is also our 3rd bedroom. It has it's own locking Casablanca type door and private bathroom. It has a small terrace that is separated from the main house terrace by a wall of potted plants. Or the condo can be rented as a two or three bedroom complete home depending on your budget or number of guests. The main house has it's own TV with satellite service, DVD/cd player, phone and a washer/dryer.
There are only 6 condo's in this complex with 3 owners living there year around. You will find this complex to be quite and tranquil. Making it more suited to adults. However we do accept kids of all ages.
Prices are in US dollars.
High season is November 1 through April 30; low season is May 1 through October 31. Holiday weeks are Thanksgiving; December 16 through January 8 and the week before and after Easter. Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is 12:00 pm.

We spent 6 glorious days in Playa La Ropa and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The condo was beautifully furnished, well maintained and had all the amenities we could ask for - purified water, laundry, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a beautiful pool and a balcony with a view you wouldn't believe. The condo is within easy walking distance of the beach, great food and even the main town of Zihuatanejo. The owner was easy to work with, responsive and very accommodating when our flight home got canceled at the last minute. I'm crossing my fingers we get to stay at in this beautiful paradise again. I recommend it to all who are seeking a get away without all the hassle travel can bring. Thanks for the amazing vacation!

Review of Vista Bahia
Review of Vista Bahia
We stayed here last Christmas and though this condo did have a great view we felt that this condo was unsafe for many reasons. There are no railings around the pool or to help you get in the pool. Also the walkway from the elevator to the unit has no guardrails either and it is very high off the ground. The driveway up from the main road is extremely steep and unsafe for the younger and older people in our group. A car is almost needed to get up the driveway and in fact we needed to call a taxi every time we wanted to go to the beach as one of our party could not walk safely down the hill as it is so steep I would not recommend this property for families with young children or for people with mobility issues or the elderly. As well the pool is very small and there are not enough places to sit. The other owners of the property were not very welcoming and seemed to resent us being there.Teenagers are especially not welcome we found. Finally the manger was quite rude when we asked for information on previous clients as if he could not give us any references

Owner response: We are surprised Gail waited a year to complain. One would think a rental property run so bad, personal so rude and a place so dangerous that a decent human would write a review as soon as she returned home to warn the public. She cannot show one email to us with any of her complaints to date. What this is about is a women who tried to scam us by sneaking in an additional person without paying and breaking our complex rules. Stealing services without paying. And lying for months before arrival. She was caught minutes after arrival. Her inquiry dated April 1, 2012 states 4 adults, 2 children. Our advertised site states 2 people per bedroom, 6 people maximum. Her deposit on April 8, 2012 accepts our complex terms. April 15, 2012 she was emailed the condo information needed along with a request for the names of the other 5 people. October 1, 2012, 5 months later she emails the 5 names. She arrives December 23, 2012 with 7 PEOPLE. She was advised immediately one person needs to leave or pay a $100.00 per day fine for breaking complex rules. She reluctantly paid the $1000.00 fine and I allowed the extra person to sleep on our expensive couch. We like our good guests to enjoy a less crowded stay and not put up with these types of people is the reason we limit the number of guests. Our elevator walkways do not have hand rails. We have solid concrete walls 6 inches thick and 3 feet tall. Railings have holes in them that allow kids and dogs to fall through and they can break. Concrete is much safer. This women thinks concrete is more dangerous. Wow! Our driveway is steep she says. We have no driveway. The complex is 15 feet off a public road. Zihua is hilly. Most homeowners are older and walk everywhere. This women must be very heavy or in horrible shape. She says our pool is small. It is 12 to 15 feet wide and 70 feet long which is much bigger than most complex pools in a complex with only 6 condo's. And bigger than many pools in complexes with many more condo's. A big pool shared by few guests makes for happy guests. A 3 year old could see this. Pool entry is 5 steps that are 4 feet wide. She says they did not feel welcome. Other world travelers must have been driven nuts by her complaining. Are home owners responsible for the way strangers interact with each other?? Not! I would suggest before VRBO publish this review a representative from VRBO should visit Casa Zih to witness her lies. And VRBO should request supporting emails to verify her lies.
We've stayed in several hotels & condos in the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo area & this home is our favorite. Everything is first rate & the views can't be rivaled. The owners are very easy to work with and extremely accommodating. Can't wait to get back next week!

We have stayed at Vista Bahia for four years now and we simply have not found a better place to stay in Playa La Ropa. The views are spectacular and well worth the walk up from the beach...we consider the walk our Mexican fitness regimen! The place is completely outfitted - internet hookup, laundry, sunscreen - the works! Even the guidebooks are the best we've found. Wish my own home was as nice as this. The neighbours, staff and owner couldn't be more welcoming and friendly. The maid has even shown us how to make frijoles. We book our next year's trip basically the day we come back.
