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." Glen and Deidra Miller

Award Winning Support
Our family had some last minute travel changes beyond our control and these people were very understanding and worked with us to support our family on very short notice. In fact they went above and beyond what would have been expected when we need to change our plans...at the very last minute.
Thank you so much, your flat is gorgeous and so are YOU!
Thank you kindly for your review, Quinn.
Amazing Condo and view
We were a party of four and found the condo to be very comfortable. Had everything we needed for our 10 day stay. The grounds and pool were well maintained and everyone was extremely friendly. We would definitely consider returning to this property.
Exactly as the pictures show and then some.
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!
Thank you kindly for your review Della. It was a pleasure to have you and your family visiting and the fact that you enjoyed your stay and activities in our small town makes us proud and happy. You were wonderful guests and I would love to see you again in Zihuatanejo.
With kind regards.
The place wasn't that clean, we had black feet. The bathroom off the second bedroom can get really stinky. Location was great
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.
(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:
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,
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.
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.
Miriam and Lee
Beautiful Condo. Great Price
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.
Private plunge pool and 2 large common area pools with stunning sunset views! Variety of restaurants in walking distance and downtown Zihuatanejo, an ancient fishing village. Archaeological zone, bird watching, spectacular deep sea fishing, diving, surfing, two 18-hole golf courses and music and art festivals.
