Zihuatanejo condo description

Wanna Get Away? Cares Melt Away While Dreams Come True at La Vida.... La Vida is 'The Life' And you will realize it as soon as you set down your bags, breathe in the ocean air of the tropics, and enjoy the spectacular view.
From the morning's first rays of light peeking over the mountains to the last glowing embers of the sun slipping into the sea, a panoramic bird's eye view is yours and is truly stunning.
One of the nicest features of this spacious 2 bedroom condo are the stacking glass doors spanning the entire front living area and when open offers an unobstructed view of the gentle, curving bay of Zihuatanejo. Casa La Vida's special location provides excellent vistas but is located very close to the protected bay. Enjoy great swimming and snorkeling without all the crowds.
You will feel like you are on top of the world but the soft, golden sand is only steps away from your door.
Inside Casa La Vida, the outstanding amenities include king size beds with mattresses that are truly comfortable. Lots of pillows and sumptuous Egyptian cotton sheets. This adds to the pleasure of being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves lapping at the shore. Wake in the master bedroom in what could be described as an infinity bed, another spectacular view of the bay with the ocean beyond. The guest bedroom also has a comfortable king and opens to a small private terrace.
You will enjoy preparing meals in our sparkling new, quality crafted kitchen. Granite counter tops provide ample room and modern appliances include a refrigerator providing cold, drinkable water and ice at the push of a button. In fact you can feel confident about drinking water from all the taps as the entire complex has a state of the art water filtration system.
Both bathrooms are quite luxurious, huge showers feature built in marble benches and the towels are thick and fluffy.
The restful breezes of the bay are always pleasant but if you want to cool down a bit more, there are fans and quiet air conditioning in all rooms.
When leaving the condo you can feel secure. There is a built in safe for your valuables and the building has electronic locked gates, an intercom system and private elevator.
At the beach you can engage in a multitude of sun, sea and sand activities or you can just leisurely stroll along the waters edge. The many beachfront restaurants allow you to enjoy quite an assortment of gourmet culinary delights while wiggling your toes in the sand. A different dining experience for each day of the week is possible. Some of our favorites are Paty's where fresh fruits and vegetables accompany a large variety of seafood and traditional Mexican dishes. Try a glass of fresh squeezed orange,papaya or pineapple juice with breakfast. Paty's also offers morning yoga classes upstairs.Friendly waiters, Arturo and Raul are always happy to see you.
Arrive in late afternoon and you will have the opportunity to catch Happy Hour at one of the many breezy palapa restaurants along La Ropa beach. What better way to unwind from a long flight than drop off your bags at the condo and head for the beach?
The Coconut shrimp at Elvira's is heavenly and the after dinner Kahlua and cream is a nice touch. La Perla is a little farther down the beach, the breezy open-air bar stocks different varieties of tequila just right for sipping or made into one of the best Margaritas on the beach.
Second only to the view from La Vida's terrace, the beach restaurants are all wonderful spots to watch the sunset.
There are also many things to do just a taxi drive away. Many of the drivers speak excellent English and arrangements can be made for quick trips or all day excursions.
Some of the water activities you can enjoy on the bay are jet skis, kayaks, parasailing or riding the banana boat.For something extra special, book a snorkeling or sunset cruise on the catamaran The Picante. Even water skiers get out on the bay in the mornings when the surf is calm. There are open aire tents at the motels on the beach for massage. It's a very relaxing treat to be pampered with the sound of the waves, the soft breeze and skilled hands.
Ixtapa (just over the hill)offers the nightlife and there are two top notch golf courses. While Troncones (about a 45 min. drive )is popular for surfing and long quiet stretches of beach to gather shells or stop in at one of the many restaurants for lunch or just a cool drink.
When you stay at the Casa La Vida you are part of an exclusive complex of only 6 units. Some of the other residents are there full time, there are no crowds. Respect for the tranquility and privacy enjoyed by all is of the utmost importance. Casa La Vida is a non-smoking condo. The tranquil nature of La Vida is such that it is more suited to adults, we do not allow children under sixteen.
Check-in time is 3pm Check-out time is 12:00, If you have a late flight you are welcome to store your luggage and use the pool, there is a shower, bathroom and changing area.
Our large infinity pool is never crowded and is located down a short path just below the condo. It's a great location to take a quick dip, lounge the day away or celebrate with a toast at sunset. Another wonderful day in paradise.
Bienvenidos a 'La Vida'

                  Location

                  La Ropa Beach is the nicest beach on the bay, only a few minutes walk from the condo. Close to restaurants and water sports. Also has lagoon with cocodrillos and nearby is a turtle hatchery.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo:
                  My husband and I have been traveling throughout Mexico for over ten years. The first time we came to Zihuatanejo we knew we wanted a home here but thought the prices a little too steep for our budget.So we set about looking for something as nice, as low key but easy to get to with as much charm and less flashiness, on the beautiful ocean with a stretch of sandy beach. We searched long and hard and found ourselves always missing Zihuatanejo and never finding anything comparable. After ten years we returned and we are so happy to be able to keep coming back year after year. It is so nice now to once we open the door, just set down our bags and instantly fall in love all over again. All it takes is relaxing a few moments on the terrace enjoying the view.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  You can swim in the bay, walk everywhere and enjoy fresh gourmet meals at home or at any one of the casual restuarants near by.When we are at Casa La Vida, it is private, quiet and relaxing.And I honestly don't think there is a better place to enjoy the sunset than our own terrace.
