About The Owner

I own my own business in Calgary Canada. My family and I love to come to our home in Ixtapa and we visit here often. We enjoy sharing our home with family and friends.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Guerrero

We chose Ixtapa for the weather (a very consistant 30+ degrees year round!) and we chose Amara because of the individual unit sizes and its location in Ixtapa. You can't beat Amara's location - directly off the main area of downtown Ixtapa and in the middle of Ixtapa beach.

What makes this condo unique

We travel with our 3 children and we have found it very difficult to find accomodations that suit our lifestyle and provide us with enough individual space to truly relax. We like the comforts of home and what better way to have them when you travel then to have your own place. We have outfitted our unit with many upgrades and with only the finest furniture and beds for our casa. We like the conveniences that TV and WiFi bring and I love to send my business associates views from my 'office' when i'm working remotely from the balcony in Ixtapa!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Jason's condo was absolutely perfect for our family of 6 adults and 3 children. It had everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen to beach and pool toys for the kids! The family pool is perfect for kids and the palapa bar is great for a quick snack or refreshing drink. We spent every morning and evening on the balcony - the view is amazing! We will definitely go back and hopefully soon!

Beautiful spot, mouth dropping view.

  • 5 of 5

Spending a couple of weeks with friends, we knew we were at the right place. We each had our own space. Jasons place is at the best location, close to great restaurants and stores. The views were beautiful and the pool area has lots of greenery and spots for shade. We would definitely recommend for a relaxing vacation.

A beautiful condo with a great view and lots of space for a large group. The complex itself is also incredible, with great pools, beach access and friendly staff. Its also an easy walk from the condo to shops and great restaurants. I have been twice now, and can't wait to go back again!

This condo is so beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a condo for two families and a couple we knew we would need space, this condo was absolutely perfect. We all had our own room with a bathroom in each room. The kids shared a room but they loved it! And they had plenty of room as well. We would watch a movie at night and all be comfortable. The balcony is awesome, Jason has really comfotable furniture and we sat out every morning drinking our coffee. The view is so beautiful, breathtaking. We walked across the street to dinner every night it is very close to town. We all enjoyed this condo very much and hope to go back soon! The owner Jason is very nice and if you have any questions he is always there for you. We highly recommend this condo, you won't be disappointed!

Great condo with a million dollars view!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located in the Amara complex right next to the Krystal Hotel in Ixtapa. The unit is closed to everything you can possible need from restaurants, shopping, etc. The unit is well equipped with everything you can possible need, Flat HD TV, with Apple TV, Netflix, Internet, Bose music system, comfortable beds, full equipped kitchen, laundry and air conditioner on all the rooms, plus with a million dollars view!!! The Amara complex counts with three pools, one for children with supervision, other for children without supervision and one for only adults. The pools are truly amazing, with easy access to the beach and with many outdoor activities to do such as parasailing, Jet-ski rentals, beach massages, etc. The management of the condo is top-notch which I was able to communicate via email with a very quick response. The unit manager was able to arrange for a cooker to make some delicious ceviche, and cook some fish for us. I highly recommend this property to know one that would like to spend a great vacation.

Wow! Fantastic unit. You get what you pay for.

  • 5 of 5

The Amara is by far our favorite place to stay at in Ixtapa. The proximity to the town with its wonderful restaurants and shops can't be beat and the pool and beach area are second to none. That being said, we have stayed in a number of different units in the Amara and have enjoyed all of them, but there is something to be said about the old saying "you get what you pay for". This unit was so perfectly appointed for our family that it stands out well above the others we've stayed in. Conveniences are everywhere. Big flat screen TV's, fast personal Wifi, X-box, Apple TV, NetFlix. Comfy beds, plenty of extra pillows, nice shower heads, awesome deck furniture. The storage locker had beach and pool toys, floats, boogie boards, sand shovels... Everything we needed. You can easily tell that the owners care about their renters comfort and needs. The owner Jason, provided an information package with details from what to expect at the airport, how to avoid getting suckered into a time share sale, getting a taxi, helpful descriptions of activities to do and recommendations of restaurants. Believe me, we've been to Ixtapa 7 times and the info in his package was even helpful to us. The unit is obviously well taken care of. The kitchen was renovated, they have a huge 10 person dining table, all the AC units worked, simple things like extra batteries for the remotes were easily available. It felt like everything was thought of and taken care of. I know there were cheaper units available to rent, but this place was totally worth the extra couple bucks a night. Remember, you get what you pay for.
