About the property

1br 1bath Brand New Full Kitchen With Granite Large Outdoor Terrace

Enjoy superb location and direct access to Playa la Ropa and Zihuatanejo Bay from this 1-bedroom, 1-bath, ground floor condominium with shared semi-private small pool, plus Olympic Pool option 60 steps from front door and 200 steps to Playa LaRopa Beach, set on meticulously manicured grounds. 1,400+ square foot (145square meter) unit with recent high-end remodel. New kitchen appliances. Deeded parking space 5A available inside gated property of the Residencias Villa del Sol (RVS). World travelers will enjoy this high-end experience. The choice of local restaurants and dining options provide a wide range of culinary experiences, from simple to sophisticated. The proximity to the beach is perfect for morning, mid-day and magical walks, providing a 'no excuse' setting for fitness in the full Lap-sized pool, walking the beach, or walking to town. Lastly, history buffs can enjoy the nearby pyramid excavations that are being unearthed and the emerging and growing collections in the museum. Whether your preference is to chill and relax, or engage in cultural experiences, the Residencias location is a perfect base to enjoy both. For an optional small extra fee plus cost of groceries payable directly to the housekeeper, you can engage services to enjoy breakfast for two, made to order. For spending the day on the beach, simply call the front office to order chaise lounge chairs, umbrellas and side tables. These will be delivered to your favorite spot on the beach at no extra charge. Food and beverage may be ordered from neighboring hotel (formerly Viceroy Hotel) beach waitstaff, payable in cash or by credit card for hotel food and beverage orders.

About John Fitch and Jane Schuldt

Internationally well-traveled couple with a special love of Zihuatanejo. Most recent journey was to India, including Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Mumbai.

John Fitch and Jane Schuldt purchased this condo in 2013

Why John Fitch and Jane Schuldt chose Playa La Ropa

After a decade of enjoying the hospitality as guests of family who also own a home in the Residencias and falling in love with the complex, we were convinced it held great long term interest for us as a winter refuge from the Minnesota mid-winter cold.

What makes this condo unique

We have found the entire experience over the years to be wonderfully predictable in terms of weather, food, relaxation. As we've often heard it described, it is.. Approximately Perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just off the beach and no stairs to climb

  • 5 of 5

Last year we stayed at the Embarc and had so many flights of stairs to climb to get to our room at the top. This year we really enjoyed our short and fairly flat walk to our condo. The condo has a very nice kitchen with a full size fridge/freezer. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom huge. The specs said that there was a washer and dryer in the condo, but when we arrived, the laundry area was locked off. However, the maid Carolina did our laundry, so that was really not a problem. We found beach towels for our use, so could have saved bringing our own. Other people staying at the Residencias were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for good restaurants etc. We love la ropa beach and plan to return next year either to this condo or another if this one is not available.
