"When you arrive at the gates you know something special lies behind. Each villa is special in its own right; one would think a landscape architect designed the grounds, they are so well matched to the building form but Gunnar and Barbara get all the credit. The property is not simply an architectural masterpiece but a work of art and, as we sadly drove away at the end of our week-long stay, we were still marveling.
Coming from an Alberta winter, you can well imagine our goal was to spend as little time indoors as possible; what better way to do it than to have your living space partially open? We were thrilled to discover our little casita came with daily housekeeping and maintenance from on site manager, Tito, and his lovely wife Carmen. We had great fun practicing our Spanglish and Carmen, in particular, was very interested in improving her English. Tito was up bright and early each morning supporting our daily breakfast habit with a delivery of fresh rolls to our door. I would be remiss if I didn't mention our other guests, Tali, Scamp and Snow, the resident dogs and cat. I suspect they would have ignored us had we not arrived stocked with tasty treats to entice them to our door.
What cannot be overstated is that it isn't just the property that goes well beyond one's expectations; it's the hosts, Gunnar and Barbara. While always conscious not to invade the privacy of their guests, they each offer up their special brand of opportunities that made our stay all the more enjoyable.
Would we return? In a heartbeat!

"Best vacation ever! As we reached the gate to the condo, we were met by the security who welcomed us to our home for the week. The condo's fully furnished, open live-in area and fully stocked kitchen, private patio overlooking one of two swimming pools that face the beach, was amazing!! The beds were comfortable with plenty of room and private bathrooms. We enjoyed walks on the maintained beaches, swam many hours in the warm water, and experienced the most beautiful sunsets only seen in photos. Walking distance to souvenir shops, restaurants, banks, and a short drive or bus ride to snorkeling, downtown, more great restaurants and night life. I highly recommend anyone interested in renting to book this one, you won't be disappointed."

"This unit in the Amara was perfect. Very well appointed. Furnished beautifully. Comfy beds...full kitchen. Just a fantastic home away from home but in Paradise! The owners were very helpful and their manager, Claudia, was excellent. We were so pleased with the accommodations. We could not have hoped for a better experience. Thank you Kevin and Janice. The Amara property is so lovely and safe. The private beach and pool areas are fantastic. We will never stay anywhere else in Ixtapa. Our kids (in their 20's) absolutely raved about The Amara. Thank you for recommending Mario as a driver. He and his son were terrific. We cannot rave enough about our experience. We will never stay anywhere else when vacationing in Ixtapa. You cannot improve on perfection. Thank you!!!"
