About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) with a Million-Dollar view

Come and visit my condo with the million-dollar view, in the beautiful Condominios Punta Marina.

This large three bedroom, three and a half bath home is not only spacious inside, but has about 1000 square feet of outdoor terrace to enjoy the views and gentle breezes of Playa LaRopa.

Lounge in the hammock, sip margaritas on the terrace, take a dip in the adjoining pool or take the path down to La Ropa.

You can head also into the city center where you can explore the mercado municpale for local fruits, vegetables and regional specialties (like Oaxaca cheese,etc.), the mercado artisanas for local crafts in wood, leather, pottery, jewellery and more or stroll along the waterfront for lunch, watching the fisherman haul in their catch. There are plenty of shops selling everything from traditional Mexican crafts, to beautiful silver jewelry, tequila and local vanilla. Check out the Sunday evening fiestas by the basketball courts, or grab a meal at one of the local restaurants.

But of course, during the day there is no better place to relax than the beach. This beautiful stretch of beach has plenty of places to lay in the sun, play in the surf or head out with your mask and fins. You can even get a massage right on the beach!

At night, the beach twinkles with restaurants offering the catch of the day. Or head into town for a bit more action. Traditional Mexican fare is everywhere, but other restaurants offer everything from Italian to upscale to authentic southern BBQ.

Come visit this piece of paradise today!

About L. Burns

I just fell in love with this place. I know you will love it too, once you have stayed there. A great many people come back again and again because it is so relaxing and beautiful.

L. Burns purchased this condo in 2010

Why L. Burns chose Playa Las Gatas

Zihuatanejo is an undiscovered jewel of a place and I have been coming down to visit for five years. I realized at one point that I would really like to escape the entire Canadian winter with its cold and snow so I decided to buy a place for my retirement. It really is the most relaxing, peaceful place with that million-dollar view that makes this condo so special.

What makes this condo unique

Very economical when travelling with 4 to 6 friends or family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You will find yourself living on Casa Luna Llena’s huge balcony which overlooks the pristine and beautiful Zihuatanejo Bay. LaRopa Beach, which is lined with restaurants for every pocketbook, is quieter during the week but lively on the weekend with local families, para-sailing and sailboats. Zihuatanejo has been a Mexican community since Cortes built his ships in the bay and has wonderful indigenous shops, restaurants and marketplaces. Your holiday can be as tranquil or as busy as you want it to be. All the choices are there. And the weather is perfection.

great location for us

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. The views are amazing. And we could walk (easily for us) to where we wanted, although we did take the local taxis too.

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Stunning views, perfect location, spacious living.

  • 5 of 5

Situated at the very south-end of Playa de la Ropa, this condo shares the best of everything. Incredible views of the bay, perfect for viewing all the activity on the beach, fireworks at night but far enough away to keep it a peaceful setting. The property affords a huge deck for sunning or BBQ'ing and overlooks the beautiful swimming pool. Each bedroom having its own bath was a big plus. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, not common to find at many properties in Mexico. The walk to the beach we found to be an amazing experience at sunrise, listening to the many birds we'd never heard before and the 6 minute stroll gave us a chance for some great exercise for a perfect morning start. Great restaurants also right within walking distance on the beach or down the road. The WI-FI worked well and the condo staff was very friendly and quick to assist us if we had any needs. This is a great find and will be definitely be on our repeat list.

Wrong Location

  • 3 of 5

The condo itself was as represented EXCEPT for the location. The Home Away website location map was [perhaps still is] very wrong. The condo is NOT at the northern tip of La Ropa beach as shown, but located two miles away and below the beach’s southern tip. This made beach access, transportation, and downtown difficult. The owner has failed to make an adjustment for the false info nor even apologize.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that my guests are unhappy with this but at no time did I purposely mislead anyone or provide false information. From my point of view, I negociated a special discount for them, provided some groceries free of charge and sent written directions (for the taxi from the airport) to them in advance. They asked for confirmation of location well before they were scheduled to go and upon my response, advised me that they knew exactly where it was. Next thing I know, after their return, there were issues with the location and the guests wanted a refund. There is a mini-bus service right there so transportation is not an issue at all. However, only upon the request for a refund did I find out that location was an issue, despite receiving written assurances that they knew where it was exactly before they left home. The map was provided by GoogleMaps and I am sorry that it was misread. But I cannot be responsible for an issue that I did not even know about nor can I change the location of my unit. I provided everything that was contracted for to the best of my ability.

The condo was perfect. The pictures do not do it justice. From the good size bedrooms, with their own bathrooms, to the large living area, fully stocked kitchen and fantastic deck, this was great. We enjoyed our morning coffee's and dinners on the deck. The location is peaceful and quiet yet only a 5 minute walk to the main beach. The staff were very thorough and helpful. Lynn was very helpful in supplying a list of restaurants, things to do and places to shop. We rented a car and would recommend it if you want to explore other areas and go in to town.

Beautiful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Zihuatanejo for five weeks at condos Punta Marina (Lynn's condo). The view, the terrace are just great. We took ALL OUR MEALS on the terrace. The pool is just a few steps away. The beach is five minutes walk and stairs away. Lynn's rent includes a mail service three times a week. Roberta is efficient hard working and discrert. The condo is very clean. Alvaro is always around to help you. Lynn has provided us with useful information. We are already planning to return next year.
