Ixtapa condo description

This large (3850 sq. ft.) 12th floor condo was constructed as a four bedroom, four bath condo with maid's quarters, located at the center front of the ocean side of the central tower. The terrace (1000 sq. ft.) wraps around the entire condo for a 180 degree unobstructed view of the beach. Two bedrooms with attached private baths have been locked off by the owners, leaving a very spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, TV room and the entire large terrace for the enjoyment of the renters of the remaining two bedrooms with attached private baths. No one uses the locked off rooms when the condo is rented. This condo makes all other two bedroom condos feel cramped and small. Professionally decorated, the furnishings of this condo are high quality and comfortable, with TempurPedic mattresses in the bedrooms. One bedroom has a king size bed and the other has a queen size bed. Both have large closets and lots of storage. Each bedroom has an attached private bath with frameless tempered glass showers, marble counters and vessel sinks. All rooms have sliding glass doors out to the magnificent terrace. The view from this terrace is unbelievable in scope and beauty. Most rentals have a restricted view, either to the north or south of the beach. Your view here covers all the beach, the ocean, the surrounding hills, the marina, and the pools and gardens of the complex. This terrace features glass railings and tropical hardwood furniture. The kitchen has been remodeled and enlarged with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and all necessary cooking utensils, small appliances and dishes. The maid's quarters has been converted into the laundry room and has ample storage for your golf bags, beach and water toys and empty suitcases. Private wireless internet is available in the unit. There is a new 47 inch LED Smart TV in the TV room with a DVD player and a library of DVDs for your entertainment. There is also a Bose docking station to charge and play your Ipods.

Location

12 Miles
Nearest Airport
Zihuatanejo

Car: Not Necessary

Ixtapa is about twelve miles from the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Airport (ZIH). Ixtapa is a beautiful Fonatur development consisting of hotels and condominiums built along two-mile long Palmar Beach. There is only one main avenue that makes a U-turn at the Marina end. There are several nice restaurants and shops within walking distance of the condo at the Marina end. There are public buses that stop at the condo and travel up and down this avenue which take you to many more restaurants and shops, banks, movie theater, and grocery stores. These buses are very inexpensive.

Buses or taxis can take you about six miles to the 'Old Fishing Village' of Zihuatanejo. 'Zihua' is now a bustling small town but still maintains the charm it has always enjoyed. It is built on rolling hills surrounding beautiful Zihua Bay. You can charter deep sea fishing boats here and, of course, there are many more wonderful restaurants and shops to explore.

There are two golf courses in Ixtapa, The Marina Course, directly across the street from the condo, and the Palma Real, a mile or so down the avenue. Both are lovely, with lots of interesting wild life to enjoy along the fairways and water features.

There are biking trails through beautiful ecological areas to Playa Linda. There you can view exceptional wildlife and take a small boat to Ixtapa Island for snorkeling day trips. There are small restaurants on the island.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hola! Our names are Richard and Marguerite Daugherty and we are the proud owners of this condo. We are retired and live in Central Oregon. Since we no longer snow ski, we were looking for a warm weather beach area for a second home when we came to Ixtapa with friends and fell in love with the area. Our perfect day in Ixtapa begins with a four mile walk up and down the beach, followed by a swim in the pool before brunch.

Why the Owner Chose Ixtapa:
We first purchased a condo in the BVG Residencial building in 2006. While we enjoyed our time there, we saw the new BVG Marina building start construction. We decided to sell the first condo and purchased this condo because we loved the floor plan and the terrific location within the building. We also appreciate this quiet end of the beach, removed from noisy hotels, concessions and nightclubs. Of course, all those are easily accessed by the public bus or taxi.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The BVG Marina is the newest condominium building in Ixtapa, with all the modern amenities. This floor plan is unique in that it is only one of five condos with the large wrap around terrace, and so far, the only one available for rent. We love to read books on the comfortable lounge chairs on our terrace where you can find sun or shade to suit your preference. The ocean breeze keeps us cool. We enjoy taking breakfast and lunch here, watching all the activities up and down the complete beach. We never tire of cocktails on the terrace while watching the glorious sunsets. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do!
