About Gail Skitsko

Hola! We are Harry and Gail and have travelled to many places in Mexico, before finding this little piece of paradise where we instantly fell in love with it on our first visit. The clean, uncrowded small town with the guaranteed beautiful weather, friendly people and most memorable experiences of the 'real mexico'. We are planning on many more memorable vacations spent here and wishing you the same. Adios Amigos!

Gail Skitsko purchased this condo in 2011

Why Gail Skitsko chose Guerrero

We chose to buy this condo because of the outstanding views we get from it. Both the inside and outside of the building have lots to offer, not to mention Ixtapa itself. This is one very clean resort town and it's good to know that we feel safe and secure walking around downtown or on the beach. The people here are so friendly and very helpful with things, and the abundance of restaurants and activities is amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second time to Ixtapa but only our first experience with not staying in an all inclusive.We were a bit apprehensive at first, but after spending 2 weeks in this condo, we both agreed that it was probably one of our best vacations ever.The unit itself is beautifully decorated & is equipped with everything you need. We loved having our morning coffee out on the patio watching the sunrise & never tired of the amazing view of the beach & ocean from the 15 floor.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot to enjoy the blue skies and sunshine of Ixtapa! The condo was beautifully equipped and spotless, and the cross breeze was great (no need for A/C). We loved having coffee on the deck overlooking the beach every morning. The local transportation to all the surrounding areas was available just outside the gate, so no need for a vehicle. Gail was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We are looking forward to an opportunity to return soon!

Can't get any better.

  • 5 of 5

Predictable, predictable, predictable. You can always count on a bright and hot sunny day. The unit served our wants and needs perfectly. No reason to use the A/C, as the cross flow breeze through the unit was wonderful. Very comfortable. Can't wait to return next year. M&M, V.I., BC

Owner's Response: Hi M&M. Yes, it certainly is predictable that you're going to have gorgeous weather every day. If you're looking for sunshine and hot weather all the time while on vacation, then Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo certainly has it. It's a great way to get that much needed sun that a lot of people lack in the winter time.

Wonderful accommodations in Ixtapa

  • 5 of 5

Gail was such a delight to work with from the moment we contacted her. Such easy and stress free booking. We enjoyed the condo for a week and had a wonderful time. When we walked into the condo, my husband said, "OH WOW, LOOK AT THAT VIEW" It sure was a million dollar view!! Why anyone would want to stay at a hotel is besides me!! The condo offers a great cross breeze in the unit by opening the bedroom window and slider in the living room, but we did use the AC at times, especially at night to sleep. The condo has everything you could possibly need and the king size bed is so comfy, we really enjoyed the comfort of the bed!! The pool is very nice and there were plenty of lounger beds. We stayed towards the end of the season, so I'm sure it can get quite busy here, but we just happen to come when it was slower. The restaurant on the premises is quite good and offered fair prices. We enjoyed breakfast here a few times and also ordered some snacks a few times when we were lounging at the pool. The long stretch of beach in front of the property is great for taking nice walks along the ocean. Unfortunately, we were not really able to make much use of going into the ocean because the waves were really rough. Most of the time the "black flag" was up, so that was the only disappointment for us.

The condo is located a fair walk into town should you decided to go out and enjoy various restaurants, but there is a commuter bus/van that runs frequently just outside the condo and for 7 pesos pp, it will drop you off in Ixtapa by all the larger hotels (Emporio, Tesoro, Krystal, etc) For 10 pesos pp, it will take you all the way into Zihuatanejo. We usually took the transportation into town for dinner and walked back to the condo after (usually enjoying an ice cream) We would highly recommend this condo for your Ixtapa vacation.

Owner's Response: Muchas Gracias OnVacation for your wonderful review. We are so glad you loved the view and cross breeze that you get from the Condo. Yes, unfortunately the waves are quite big right in front of the condo, but when you take a little walk down the beach to where the hotels are, the waves are smaller making it easy for a lot of people to swim. The bus is a great alternative if you don't feel like walking into town. They run very frequently, so there's no waiting around that long for one to come. Please remember, you're always welcome to our condo on any future trips to Ixtapa you have….btw, walking back to condo with ice cream is an excellent idea!…we need to start doing that!

Relaxing Ixtapa vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in March 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed Gail's tasteful and comfortable condo. The condo has a great balcony view which overlooks the long stretch of beach (Playa El Palmar) that rolls up into the sunrise. We walked the beach alot. The unit has a great view out the back too. Across the main drag, over the golf course and up into the mountains. A lovely breeze traveled between front and back of the unit. Furnishings are modern and well kept. Gail was easy to work with. We recommend this condo for a relaxing Ixtapa/Zihuat vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane for your great review. Yes, with the condo layout as it is…it gives you that nice variety of having both views of the ocean and of the mountains…as well, you are able to create a beautiful flow-through breeze in the condo. It was our pleasure having you both as guests in our condo, and you are more than welcome to stay again in any future trips you may have to Ixtapa.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a month truly a home away from home! Well equipped with everything you could want! The view from the balcony is beyond beautiful breakfast in the morning, evenings sitting on the lounger reading with a glass of vino just listening to the waves, doesn't get much better than that! Gail is amazing so good to deal with through the whole process, thank you Gail for everything! Hope to return in the future!
