"We have been to the area several times but never found this gem until now. You will quickly feel right at home but then it sets in, you are living a dream. The condo is well laid out, each room has its own private feel. Rather you are traveling as a large family or need to split up into a few groups this unit will meet your needs. The entire property is we'll maintained. The pool areas are large and suitable for toddlers - seniors with plenty of room for all. The beach is fantastic complete with a lifeguard. There is plenty to do within walking distance but you might not want to leave, there is a poolside restaurant that is very affordable. BVG C-301, try it you'll love it, but then again maybe you shouldn't, that way there will be more stays for us."

"My group of four recently returned after two weeks at Oscar's condo overlooking beautiful La Ropa beach. All through the process from initial inquiries to follow up after our return, Oscar was extremely helpful and always responded more quickly than expected. During the two week stay, Silvia came twice to clean the condo, change the beds and wash the bath towels.
The condo has a magnificent view from both large balconies overlooking the bay. The property is spacious with all three bedrooms having ensuite baths. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need except an oven and dishwasher. There is a washing machine but no dryer in the suite, but since we had sun daily until the last night when it rained, everything dries quickly on the balcony.
The property has a very nice pool and waterfall and the grounds are well maintained. There were never more than 6 or so people at the pool and frequently nobody at all. It is very quiet in the evening and you can sit on the balcony and listen to the cicadas chirping at night, with only the occasional band playing off in the distance at one of the local bars. Even then, by about 9 or 10 at night they stopped playing.
We were a five minute walk down the hill to La Ropa beach, which is beautiful. It was nice coming down to the beach and finding lots of the local people down there, rather than a beach with only tourists. We enjoyed the seafood platters and margaritas at Restaurant Rossy (they have an expat 'band' playing Thur-Sat on the roof deck) and spent one lunch at La Perla although thought the food was better at other places. If you want more authentic food, find Mary's towards the other end of the beach. You can sit on the sand, or go back to the restaurant tucked in behind. I thought her shrimp tacos were the best.
We spent quite a bit of time in town and got there by walking down the hill from the condo to the road by the beach. You will either find a taxi or the bus that goes right into the centre of Zihua to the mercado. You can buy lots of fresh produce and seafood/meats there. From there it is only a three block walk to the mercado artisano along the waterfront. There are lots of vendors in stalls and many artisan shops along the way and many restaurants along the waterfront. We had a couple of meals at La Sirena Gorda and Bandidos and enjoyed them.
Overall a fabulous vacation for our group and we would not hesitate to recommend Oscar's condo and Zihuatanejo to others."

"Rain in Cancun made me look for a last minute change. Luis was very accommodating and returned calls promptly.
As far as the condo goes...
Spectacular views with nice furnishings and T.V.s
The pool was UNBELIEVABLE and drinks/snacks by the pool were very reasonably priced...
Overall it was a great place and an excellent value..."

"The first year, we were guests of members of Intrawest. We liked it so much that this year, we decided to rent the 2 bedroom villa. The villa is perfect for two couples but would also suit a family of 6. The description and pictures are accurate. This villa is not far from the pools, beach, work out room and restaurant. Sending a large amount of money to a complete stranger is always a bit scary, but Andie, our contact was very helpful and the whole process was successful. Although there is no daily cleaning provided, one of the cleaning staff does come by mid week to empty garbages and give you supplies such as toilet paper. There is also a large water bottle dispenser which we easily replaced when we ran out by simply calling reception. Do participate in the hotel activities. This year I took part in the cooking class and had a great time. If there is anything that might need changing, it is that one of the TV's is pretty old and did not work well. But keep in mind that I did not miss it at all because the last thing that I wanted to do was to watch TV. I was quite happy with the soothing sounds of the ocean. Our stay met and went beyond our expectations. We are already thinking of reserving for next year!"
