Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

From the time you arrive at Vista Bahia you will witness the view 'Wow Factor'. From our huge front terrace, living and dining area and each bedroom you have extensive views of the beach, bay, city and ocean. Our 2,300 Sq.Ft, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condominium is located on the 5th floor of this 6 floor complex over looking La Ropa Beach.

One of our nicest features are the folding glass doors that span across the living area and separate the living area from the terrace. Fold them up and you have a very large room that with the breezes and ceiling fans make air conditioning usually not needed. If it is still too warm ceiling fans and air conditioning are in each room.

A complete modern kitchen with granite counter tops and plenty of room make cooking an easy pleasure. The kitchen is part of the living area so you can entertain and prepare meals at the same time. Six people can dine inside or outside on the large terrace. Or at any number of fine restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the condo. There is a water purification system that provides drinking water to all inside water taps. The condo has white marble floors inside and hand made terracota tiles on the terraces. Each bathroom has a huge marble walled shower and marble counter tops. Each bedroom has a king pillow top bed with Casablanca type doors that when open view the entire bay, beach, city and ocean.

You are close enough to the beach to here the waves lapping softly yet not over whelming. Security consists of a safe in each bedroom, a electronic key coded entry gate, inside private elevator and a night security guard. The 2nd floor is taken up by our very large infinity pool that views the entire bay, beach, ocean and city. A covered table and seating area at the pool works well with Margaritas and food during the day or at sunset.

From the condo you can watch all the beach activities including swimmers, banana boat rides, skiers, para sailers, boats coming and going, jet skiers, water skiers, hobby cat sail boats and about twice a week during the winter months a Cruise Ship will anchor for the day. The bay and surrounding area offers many options for snorkling, diving, shopping and fishing. You can spend an afternoon on the catamaran 'Picante' for snorkeling or for an evening sunset cruise.

Ixtapa offers quite a night life, two great Pete Dye golf courses, more shopping and restaurants, a marina full of boats from all over the world and Ixtapa Island where you can spend the day at a beach restaurant and snorkel. Taxi's are cheep and numerous. Our condo can be rented as a one bedroom studio with a microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender and small refrigerator. The studio has it's own TV with satellite service, DVD/cd player and phone. This studio is also our 3rd bedroom. It has it's own locking Casablanca type door and private bathroom. It has a small terrace that is separated from the main house terrace by a wall of potted plants. Or the condo can be rented as a two or three bedroom complete home depending on your budget or number of guests. The main house has it's own TV with satellite service, DVD/cd player, phone and a washer/dryer.

There are only 6 condo's in this complex with 3 owners living there year around. You will find this complex to be quite and tranquil. Making it more suited to adults. However we do accept kids over 12 years of age. Prices are in US dollars.

High season is November 1 through April 30; low season is May 1 through October 31. Holiday weeks are Thanksgiving; December 16 through January 8 and the week before and after Easter. Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is 12:00 pm. If you have later flights you can store you luggage at the entrance area or pool storage room and enjoy the pool using the pool bathroom to change for the trip home.

We had a perfectly wonderful stay at Ron and Linda's condo. The view is spectacular, the condo is beautiful and furnished beautifully and has everything you would need in a vacation rental. The pool has a spectacular view and we never had to share with any of the other 5 units while we were there; in fact, we rarely saw others on the property at all. The property is secured well with a locking gate and the caretakers, gardener, cleaning personnel are all extraordinarily polite, friendly and helpful. The provision of a contact for taxi service made our week so simple; we just dialed Andres and we had one or two taxis at our service in minutes whether we were coming or going from the condo. This property allows an easy walk to the La Ropas beach area and many restaurants, and is an easy cab ride to Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa. The taxi contact was very helpful in coordinating a fishing excursion for us as well and assisting with restaurant choices. The property owners are quick to respond to inquiries for rental, and I received my security/damage deposit back within days after my return. I highly recommend this VRBO, and I hope I will be able to return there myself.

the best of the best...

I don't know if this is the right spot to respond to a comment from a previous renter but hopefully this helps the owners in their plight against such an unwarranted comment. This response is in regard to the comment from the lady who stayed at Casa Bahia in Dec 2012 and gave 2 stars, and who broke the rules by having an extra person. My response to her weak and bogused complaints are such that it makes it hard for people as myself to read from people who complain, and then have sympathy for them. While I feel quite the contrary; how can one person insert such a petty complaint and make it the basis for their comment? How about the fact that this rental unit and location is so high on the scale of perfection and nirvana that the owners have to deal with a blemish on their resume for their rental. This comment was total uncalled for. I personally stayed here at the Casa Zih in unit #2 on the 2nd floor just above the pool, this past December. Our unit was fantastic, as the others are I'm sure. This pool and this complex is the best that I've ever experienced, and I use vrbo rentals often. This place is pure luxury and so much beauty. I can't believe someone would complain about this place. This sounds like this person shouldn't travel away from their own home if they can find such petty things to complain about. I spent so much time in the infinity pool in between my daily activities that I thought I was in heaven. To the owners of this property, I feel for you to have to defend your vacation rental from this type of complaint. My wife and I personally meant another couple who were staying in your unit and become friends with them down at the pool daily, and subsequently went to the unit on one occasion and saw what a beautiful and loving unit you have. It was so nice, that my wife and I are thinking of possibly renting it on our next visit to Zihua, if available.

Owner's Response: What a very nice thing you have done here with your comments. Really appreciated. Thank you. We hoped that with a phone call to VRBO that one of their repersentatives would check out this ladies comments before allowing them to be posted. Her complaints are very easy to put down by a simple visit to Casa Zih. But they would not. The condo you stayed in is a wonderful home and the owner Rich is just a great fit for our complex. Linda and I hope you do return to Zihuatanejo and Casa Zih again. All the owners here work together to find you a home for the dates you want.
