About Jim and Molly Conahan

Hi I am an eye surgeon In Denver Colorado. I have been all around the world and this is my favorite place to go. Our condo is fabulously furnished(It was the model),has amazing views,with a balconey that is protected from direct sun so you can use it all day. All the bedrooms have an ocean view which is only found with this layout.(Most of the other condos have the bedrooms tucked in the back of the condo with no view!) You will not be disappointed !

Jim and Molly Conahan purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jim and Molly Conahan chose Ixtapa

We bought at the BVG because we found ourselves wanting to come to come to Ixtapa every time we vacationed!! Finally after 3 or 4 times we bought by far in the nicest condo complex in Ixtapa! Over the years,our condo has become a'base' that serves to house 'The Mission of Healing Eyes' twice per year.This is our non profit that does cataract surgery on the blinded poor there! Headed by wife( who organizes the volunteer team including our kids) and myself as the eye surgeon.We have done over 1600 cataract surgeries and given eyecare and glasses to over 10,000 incredibly poor people. It`s so awesome how God works! We are able usually to use the Naval Hospital across the street and other condo owners have donated ther condos to house the volunteers !

What makes this condo unique

The third floor location is high enough to provide spectacular views while being low enough to use the steps which makes it handy when needing to 'grab ' something from the condo .(great for kids).The keyless lock makes for 'no hassle' in remembering or losing keys .(Most of the condo still use keys which I find to be a hassle especilly with kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is the best I recomand this place to every one. There is so much to do for everyone the kids, moms, dads, adults. It's a blast. Rent it!

AMAZING!!! We can't wait to come back! Beautiful condo, and really great people.

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy that we booked this. The condo is perfect for either a family or a few couples. We came with our 4 children from ages 16 up to 20. Arrived in Ziwa and went to the counter to the right and got a large suburban to take us to the condo. The staff was great and met us at the desk to bring us up to the room. We watched the sunset from our patio enjoying a glass of wine. The rooms are all spacious, with their own bathrooms, and all rooms have huge patio doors that over look the pool and the ocean. There is a snack bar open from 9am - 5pm that serves many food options along with drinks. The boys went fishing one day and caught 10 fish, which Frankie at the snack bar set up to have them cook it for us. The location is perfect, right across from the vendors and the small market is walking distance. You can take a taxi to Ziwa for about 80-100 pesos. There are so many restaurants that you can walk to or taxi to Ziwa for dinner. Everything that you need to cook or make drinks is there in the condo. We absolutely loved it, and never once felt unsafe. We told our 16 year old daughters that they could walk around anywhere, just to be back by 6pm to get ready for dinner. A couple of times we walked to dinner and came home around 9:30 or so, but a lot of shops are still open and it is all well lit. We plan on coming back again next year, but for two weeks instead of just 9 days. So happy that we picked this!!!

Amazing, condo and location! If you are planning a vacation, this is the place to spend it. The condo had everything you need, the decor is done with great taste. The management were always available. Location is, without a doubt, the best in Ixtapa. It had been a pleasure to deal with Jim and Molly, and not only they are fast to communicate, but also they had the answers I needed for our stay. It had been a pleasure to deal with them and staying in their condo that so generously shared with us. I would give 10 Stars if I could! Thank you for everything! You were instrumental for the beautiful time we had during our vacation. Dr. Adrian Krulewecki

Great Location - wonderful week spent

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, will definitely go back. The unit itself has a wonderful view, we slept with the doors open and never even needed the air conditioning on once. The staff at the pool bar especially Ricardo and Jose, were wonderful, providing incredible service. Please remember that tipping is really important to them as their regular wages are very low <3. We made the journey to Zihuatanejo and went to Nardo's for dinner (highly recommended as they have live music 2 days a week! the food was incredible too). We visited many little restaurants across from the BVG, we also bought groceries and cooked for ourselves a few times. We went to El Faro restaurant way up on the hill overlooking the bay, and took a few road trips to Barra De Potosi, and into Zihua to La Ropa and the beach with all the fishermen.. I already have activities planned for next year: Snorkelling, turtle release, and finding more restaurants with live music! We learned of the Guitar Festival a little late, as most tickets were sold out.. Next year if we can time it we will try to get tickets ahead of time :) Thanks Conahan Family for renting to us. We loved it!

The Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our group of 7. Every day perfect weather, something for everyone to do within walking distance. Rooms situated for privacy and away from living area for quiet. The deck was shaded for all day use. We love it we will certainly return again to this beautiful, and location. Excellent quick communication from owner and Property management.

Look no further- Paradise is here!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been waiting so long to return to Mexico and it was well worth the wait! We have traveled to various destinations in Mexico and have wanted to visit Ixtapa for some time. There are simply no words to describe how amazing this place truly is.

When we first arrived at the Bay View Grand we were stunned. The condo is amazing- three huge bedrooms and bathrooms, full kitchen, spacious living room and a great shaded balcony with views of the pool and the ocean. We felt spoiled since it was just the two of us staying in this huge condo, but we managed just fine. We also couldn't help but start planning our next trip with our children and extended family. This condo is perfect for a romantic getaway or a full family vacation.

The overall complex of the Bay View Grand is exceptional as well. The two pools are right next to the ocean, and are clean and refreshing. Moreover, the restaurant right next to one of the pools had excellent food and a kind, generous staff. There is also a spa, game room, and gym to help keep you busy. Even though this is not an all-inclusive resort, we felt pampered and taken care of by the entire staff here at the BVG.

Just steps from the pools is the breathtaking beach which sits near one end of the bay. From the comfort of our beach chairs we could set up snorkeling tours, fishing charters, parasailing and more with the friendly tour guides who pass by.

Once we had our fill of the beach and pools, we found it extremely easy to walk to many wonderful restaurants and shops which are situated conveniently across the street from the BVG. Everyone in town was welcoming and happy- we always felt safe wherever we went. If you care to take a trip to Zihuatanejo, you can take a cheap easy bus ride.

As I said, it is difficult to put into words how wonderful this place was for a vacation. Come see for yourself. I guarantee you will be the next person to leave a 5 star review!

When we first entered this condo, all 6 of us were nearly speechless. We found a beyond beautiful and spacious home, with an even more beautiful view. We were a party of 4, 18 year-old HS grads, and 2 chaperone Mom's. Everyone loved staying here and all Ixtapa had to offer. The ocean was gorgeous and warm, the pools were clean and refreshing, the service was respectful and friendly, and overall we felt welcomed by everyone. We even went into town with friends we made at the pool for "Posole Thursday" which was an amazing experience. Our group filled half of a local bus to get there. What a blast! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone and everyone of all ages as I am already dreaming of my next visit to Paradise:)
