About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Baths

As you open the door to the “Los Pelícanos” building at Punta Marina, you will feel an overwhelming sense of beauty and peace. Located in a private, hillside complex overlooking the ocean, the condo has a panoramic view of Zihuatanejo Bay, the town, and the surrounding mountains. You can enjoy this breathtaking view from the huge private terrace, dining area, kitchen, open-air living room, and two of the bedrooms.

Built in 2008, this spacious 2,500-square-foot condo offers plenty of room for your relaxation and comfort. All of the woodwork and decorative elements have been handmade by local craftsmen for a classic and elegant Mexican feel. The condo occupies the third floor of a five-level building, assuring tranquility and a lovely, ocean breeze. The condo faces north so the rooms stay nice and cool during the day and offer an unobstructed view of the sunset over the ocean. You can count on the soothing ocean breeze to lull you to sleep, although each room is also equipped with ceiling fans and air conditioning for hotter summer nights.

The master and second bedroom each have an en suite bathroom with a tastefully tiled shower and a beautiful, handpainted Talavera sink. The third bedroom has easy access to a third bathroom just down the hallway. A large modern kitchen with an ocean view makes cooking a pleasure. The adjoining dining area can comfortably accommodate eight guests at the one-of-a-kind glass and cactus root table. One of the best features of the condo is the folding glass door that joins the dining area to the open-air living room for a truly unique living space.

The terrace is furnished with very comfortable and modern seating, a traditional Mexican equipal dining set for four, and a small soaking tub for two – the perfect place to cool off and enjoy a margarita at sunset. The terrace is also equipped with an entertainment center complete with CD player, TV, and DVD player.

The condo is just a three-minute walk to La Ropa Beach - so close that you can actually hear the sound of the splashing waves. As you make your way to the beach down the stairs and along a quaint path, there's a large waterfall pool surrounded by a tropical garden and you may hear parrots in the trees or see an iguana sunbathing! La Ropa Beach, which has pristine white sand and crystal clear water, is bordered by palm trees and several beachfront restaurants that serve scrumptious seafood. Just across the street from the condo is “La Escollera,' a five-star restaurant with a beautiful view and an infinity pool. A five-minute drive will take you to downtown Zihuatanejo where you will find a classic, old-Mexico style atmosphere with pedestrian-only streets, a wide range of eating/dining experiences, and numerous “Tiendas de Artesanias Mexicanas' (Mexican handcraft shops).

Our lowest rate of $225 per night (VRBO default setting) is only for the season dates of June 1 through October 31. Higher season rates are as follows: $300 per night for November 1 through December 14; $450 per night for December 15 through January 5; $350 per night for January 6 through May 31.

Great Condo, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a 5 min walk to the beach. Plenty of restaurants beachside. Lovely clean water and clean beach. 5 min drive to town. The condo is modern with all the conveniences. AC/Wireless etc. The best part is the breathtaking view of the bay. You could sit on the veranda all day. Beautiful spot, beautiful condo. Last thing, definitely have Dulce (the property manager) cook you breakfast each morning. Totally worth it. Hand made tamales, eggs frittata, beans, rice, pancakes--the works. She is the real deal.

Lovely holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed staying at the condo. Fabulous views day and night! Plenty of room for 3 couples. The terrace was lovely....we spent most of the time out there when we were home. There are some good restaurants within walking distance (at least walking there, maybe not back) - would recommend El Vigia. We cooked dinner in about half the time which worked well with the size of the kitchen - its very well equipped. La Ropa beach is about a 10 minute walk downhill. Once again, some of us taxied home and some of us walked back every day!

Great Holiday Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Perched just high enough to afford the most beautiful views and the best ocean breezes, the position of this condo is outstanding. It is spacious, very well cared for and has all of the amenities. Focal point for us was the great outdoor living space……a very large terrace with comfortable lounging, basket swings, spa pool, TV (did not use much) and the most spectacular views. The owner and his assistant made it easy right from the beginning...very responsive and genuinely wanted us to enjoy ourselves. His suggestions for restaurants were excellent as well as other information in his welcome packet. We especially enjoyed Bistro del Mar, went there twice. Zihua was a seafood haven....excellent and beautifully prepared everywhere we ate. Dulce, the housekeeper, welcomed us and gave us the tour of the condo, generally made herself available to us. And her husband, Fernando, drove us where we needed to go. Do have Dulce make you a dinner or two and a breakfast as well……all were terrific. We did not need a rental car; cabs were plentiful and inexpensive. We had a fantastic, relaxing couple of weeks and would happily return to this condo.

Christmas 2015 Stay

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and I and our two 20-something kids) all loved this beautiful, excellently-located condo where we spent a wonderful week over the holiday. Plenty of space and privacy for each of us, and a terrific, fully-equipped kitchen for all the cooking that we did (taking advantage of the delicious just-caught seafood available in Zihua). Individual air-conditioning units in each of the bedrooms and the "great room" were a convenience, though we made do with the ceiling fans most of the time. The spacious, covered terrace with its view of (conveniently nearby) La Ropa Beach, the hills and the city center in the distance, is perhaps the best feature. Furnished with couch, chaise lounges, hammock-chairs and entertainment unit (tv and DVD player), the terrace is so spectacular you don't even want to leave! And if you don't want to go too far—though the beach, with all its activities and restaurants, is just a 6 minute walk (if a bit of a workout climb back)--the complex's swimming pool is large and very refreshing and never (in our experience) crowded. Housekeeper Dulce was lovely and prepared a delicious meal for us one evening. And the owner gave us loads of helpful information for our stay. We really look forward to returning.

Second time and going back for more

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this amazing condo. From the moment we walked through the door, we fell in love with the place and the setting. There are incredible views of the bay from the living room as well as the master bedroom. Nothing like waking up in the morning and seeing a gorgeous beach in front of you! We were very impressed with the impecable cleanliness of the condo and the tasteful decor. It is very spacious and the outdoor balcony (overlooking the bay) is one of the best features. It is the perfect place to lounge, eat, play games, read, etc... Both times we were travelling with children and they loved the pool, the hammocks and the beach. The condo is stocked with all the amenities you will need and the washing machine is a great asset, especially when you have young children. The pictures are exactly what it looks like. The den with the futon has now been turned into a lovely third bedroom. The owner Jamie is a pleasure to deal with, was incredibly helpful with suggestions of places to visit and eat, and really took the time to meet our needs and make us feel at home.

Dulce is amazing. She kept the condo super clean, her cooking is delicious- well worth retaining her services.

We definitely recommend this place to anyone and look forward to our next visit.

First time and loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The view were breathtaking, the accommodations were great and the food mouthwatering. We stayed for 10 days and really had a chance to explore different beaches, shop, and eat at different restaurants. I was surprised as to how reasonably priced everything was. The locals....very friendly, polite and the service was excellent. Dulce - was the best...her home cooked meals brought back sweet memories of my grandmothers cooking. She made sure our condo was clean every day and stocked with food and drinks. My favorite beach was Las Gatas, it was withing walking distance of the condo - I loved staying on the beach drinking margaritas while my husband went snorkeling.

We enjoyed our stay so much we are making arrangements to go back next year. Thank you so much to the owner - Jaime, we had a wonderful time thank you for making our stay unforgetable.
