About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Step into La Casa Vista Bahia and treat yourself to unsurpassed views onto Zihuatanejo Bay! Every room in this contemporary penthouse offers the panoramic beauty of Playa La Ropa.

Start your morning with coffee on the terrace and the sounds of birdsong and ocean waves. Take a walk along the bay, returning to a delicious breakfast with view at your Penthouse or one of the boutique hotels overlooking the beautiful by of Zihuatanejo.

Next, venture into town to shop and explore. Return to your luxury retreat to soak up the sun from your private plunge pool or one of the community’s two infinity pools with lounging areas and full bay views. Indulge in icy margaritas as you savor a warm-colored sunset from the patio’s handcrafted rocking chairs. Dine out at one of Zihua’s great restaurants. We can recommend several: do you prefer toes-in-the-sand dining or elegant cuisine? Or cook for yourself in the stainless steel/granite kitchen lovingly stocked by two gourmet cooks. Ocean-view dining for six is possible in La Casa Vista Bahia.

Two beautifully-decorated bedrooms and en suites promise relaxing nights for up to 4 guests. The master bedroom features a Mexican-style platform bed (king size), backed by a generous dressing table/desk area. Sliding wooden shutters and glass doors show off the view from a third terrace or close for complete privacy and restful darkness. This room offers satellite television. The guest bedroom can be comfortably configured with two twin beds or one king size bed. Here, too, you have privacy shutters and glass doors on the large bay-view window. The generous desk in this room is perfect for your computer. Both bedrooms offer ample closet space and built-in shelving for your clothing. Each bedroom’s en suite bathroom features marble sinks, handcrafted cabinetry, and a huge indoor-outdoor shower. A spacious half-bath is found on the first floor.

La Casa Vista Bahia penthouse is located on the upper floors (with elevator) of luxury complex La Casa Que Ve Al Mar. Renowned architect Enrique Zozaya designed Casa Que Ve Al Mar and returned to create this penthouse for indoor-outdoor living. Architect Luis Trevino designed the custom wood furnishings. High-end decorative materials and finishes abound: marble, granite, custom stonework, specialized paint techniques, and glass doors. Original art and handicrafts from Patzcuaro and San Miguel de Allende are found in every room. The guest bedroom features an extensive collection of artisan crosses. The living-dining area has contemporary, comfortable furnishings and artisan accessories. Both SkyTV and an iPod docking station are located here. Wireless internet and air conditioning are available throughout the penthouse. The kitchen offers full-size stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, and high-end cooking supplies. Located nearby is a niche with stackable washer and dryer.

La Ropa beach is a short walk from the penthouse. Zihuatanejo is a 10-minute ride by car, and taxis will arrive within minutes. Ixtapa is about 15 minutes by car. Troncones Beach, beloved by surfers, is 30 minutes away.

You determine the level of pampering that you desire during your stay at La Casa Vista Bahia. Will you rent a car so that you can explore on a whim (covered parking is available to you), or do you prefer airport pick-up and delivery and taxi service? Would you like to have fresh flowers awaiting you? Groceries? Deep sea fishing or guided tours? These can be arranged by our staff. Are you content to roam in Zihua, or would you like recommendations for dining, shopping, activities? Maid service twice per week will be included in the cost of your stay.

La Casa Vista Bahia is a relaxing luxury retreat for one or two couples or a family with two older children. Bienvenidos a La Casa Vista Bahia!

About Lee Kraft

From California we visit several times a year with family & friends for the best sunset margarita in town! - on our terrace!

Lee Kraft purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lee Kraft chose Playa La Ropa

Consistent sunny weather, fresh seafood, Playa la Ropa beach & the warm friendly people & cultures of Zihuatanejo. Warm ocean water all year. A true pearl on the Mexican Pacific Coast.

What makes this condo unique

Sunset views from our private dip pool, Playa la Ropa beach for a morning walk or run & the great selection of local restaurants with fresh healthy eating.

Guest comment April 2016:

"Your condo is wonderfully, tastefully decorated. The pictures online do it justice but it is even better in person. We appreciate every attention to detail and especially how well your unit is maintained. We own three vacation rentals in Kihei, Maui so we have firsthand knowledge what it takes to keep it so well maintained."

How could you not enjoy this fabulous 2 bedroom penthouse! The views, privacy and living space were truly spectacular. Everything is perfectly kept and beds were very comfortable. Condo pools and all facilities were very clean and the people so nice. Having your own plunge pool and 2 outdoor showers is worth the upgrade. The 'host' (Lee) is genuine with great attention to detail (loved talking with you Lee). When we travel, our desires are primarily to enjoy the area. ZIH is very safe and welcoming. You can walk everywhere or take local transportation without concern. Restaurants are everywhere, for any budget and the food is so fresh. It is awesome to find a place that doesn't have towering resorts lining the beautiful beach. The people are helpful, friendly and truly a good reason to return as you feel a part of their community. LOVE ZIH and this condo!

Not great

  • 2 of 5

The place wasn't that clean, we had black feet. The bathroom off the second bedroom can get really stinky. Location was great

Owner's Response: Betty Jo, first of all, thank you for choosing La Casa Vista Bahia for your stay in Zihuatanejo. The owners and I are disappointed that your experience was not as enjoyable as we expected it be. I was not made aware of the odor issue by the maid, who cleans twice per week, and I apologize for the inconvenience. This has not happened before. Both building management and the manager on site are presently looking into the cause of this issue. Please be assured that the issue will be taken care of, to be certain it does not happen again. We do hope you continue to vacation in beautiful Zihuatanejo, and we would love to have you as a guest again in the future. It is our intention to make up for the inconvenience during your next stay. Since we interchanged several messages before your stay and from the manual in the condo, you do have all my contact information, including my phone number; please feel free to follow up. With kind regards. Lee (one month later...) Dear Betty Jo. We have had a very good relation with our guests and several come back just abou every year. It would be wonderful, if you would consider giving us the opportunity to attend to you as well in the future. Here a a copy of a message I received just today from our guest Lind H., who stayed at the penthouse right before you: Hi Lee, Ursula and I had such a good time in Zihuatanejo last year that I would like to return (this time with another friend). We are looking at November 21, 2017 to Monday 12/4. Are those dates available? As a returning guest is there a discount? Looking forward to hearing from you, Linda

Zihua Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a month in this wonderful condo. It is beautiful, in great condition, and was well managed. The kitchen had great equipment and it was really convenient to have a washer/dryer in the unit. I liked being a little removed from the beach and tourists - getting cabs was very easy and inexpensive. It was a wonderful experience and I plan to come back many times. The review by Chris gives a lot of details and is accurate.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write the review Nancy. It was a pleasure to have you at the condo and we do hope you come back sometime soon. I believe the detailed information map with phone numbers, manuals for kitchen accessories, tv, etc, is up to date and easy to use and we are always easy to contact. Wishing you a wonderful 2016. Best regards. Miriam and Lee (Property Manager)

Beautiful Condo. Great Price

  • 5 of 5

We rented the penthouse condo for our honeymoon in Zihuatanejo from 03/31 - 04/4.

The condominium has impeccable views and is quite modern. The unit was very clean. It is HUGE.

It has 2 large bedrooms upstairs with their own bathrooms. The showers are outside on the top floor - you have the best views of the ocean while showering!

The kitchen has granite countertops and the unit comes with Cuisinart appliances (we appreciated the self-grind/coffee maker and the toaster).

The bad? Not much. I had to research online how to use the mircrowave and oven as they are not American products and it was confusing. (Note, they arent in Spanish either, but they have different symbols than one would expect).

The owner should tell you how to operate the jacuzzi/infiniti pool. It is also not clear. The same can be said for the garbage disposal. Instructions on how to use the satellite TV would have also been appreciated. It would be nice to also know security's number or have a way to talk to them so they could call you a taxi. However, we were able to walk down and ask as well. Having said that, those were minor issues.

Overall, we loved the unit. I would recommend it.

The owner has a housekeeper that came every day. She was awesome.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Awesome condo with outstanding view of the bay and Playa La Ropa. 5 minute walk to the beach, easy taxi ride to numerous restaurants and places of interest. The condo is very spacious, clean and has all the amenities you could hope for. Property manager wasn't around but this was not an issue, maid service several times during the week and plenty of friendly owners if you have any questions etc. Would most certainly return and rent this one again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for very much your review and recommendation. I'm happy you enjoyed the stay in Zihuatanejo, La Ropa beach and particularly in our condo. We would love to have you back with us soon. Our Penthouse now features a few additional amenities, such as daily maid service, an optional starter pack (including pick up at the ZIH airport) and last but not least the attention and services of our neighbor LA QUINTA TROPPO, an exclusive boutique hotel, where you are invited to use the facilities and services as if you were a guest of the hotel. Once more, thank you kindly; wishing you a happy holiday season and wonderful 2013. Lee Property Manager
