About Larry & Sandy Martin

When we walked in the door, we instantly knew this was the place we wanted to purchase. The condo has a feel of home - but with an amazing view. We live in the Eastern part of Washington State, USA and have one son who at this time is 23 years old. We would like to someday retire to Zihuatanejo, but until then, we will rent it out and use it whenever we can. We know that you will fall in love with our little piece of heaven as much as we did.

Larry & Sandy Martin purchased this condo in 2014

Why Larry & Sandy Martin chose Zihuatanejo

We had only visited this area once before we decided to look into purchasing a condo. We have had the opportunity to travel to various Mexican cities, on the Pacific and on the Atlantic ocean side, and fell in love with Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa. Zihuatanejo is 'authentic Mexico' while Ixtapa is a pristine resort area. Both cities have wonderful food and many open air shops. The main beach in Ixtapa is great for walking and is sometimes safe enough for swimming (the surf gets pretty challenging). This beach (Playa Palmar) is bordered by resorts. The closest beach to our condo is Playa la Ropa which is always calm, due to its location in the bay, and has many restaurants along its perimeter where you may sit and enjoy authentic food and drink. The ocean is warm, and the weather is always wonderful.

What makes this condo unique

We purchased this condo for the amazing view. We love the 'feel' of it. Both of the beds are very comfortable and everything you need is included. (If not, please let us know so we can include it) You can open the sliding glass doors which make up the entire living room wall and listen to the ocean. This is a very safe area, and many residents and guests leave their doors open when they are enjoying the pools. In the summer of 2015, we extended the living room and master bedroom terraces. We have found that knowing some Spanish makes your trip run a little smoother, but we get along fine with our very limited ability to communicate. (A work in progress for us) We would love to share our condo with you, and help you in any way. Please do not hesitate to ask questions.

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay in this lovely condo for just over a month. The view of the Bay and La Ropa Beach is unbelievable from almost every part of the condo. We love sitting on the terrace with our morning coffee and overlooking the 2 infinity pools. The unit has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable as is the living room furniture. We were pleased to see a good sized TV only to realize we didn't watch it often. There are so many restaurants, it's hard to choose where our next meal will be. Of course the Comercial and Mercado have all the groceries you need, but we had more fun going out for dinners with the many Zihua friends we've made on our holiday. Taxi's and the local bus system are easily accessible and the guards at La Casa Que Ve Al Mar are very friendly and helpful. We love it here and can't wait to return.

Quick ride from the airport to the condo. When we arrived we were in awe. The view from the condo was incredible----complete paradise! The condo has everything you need and space to unpack and enjoy your stay. (Washer and dryer was a plus!) It is perfectly decorated, clean and the beds are comfortable. I needed the internet in order to work while I was there and it worked perfectly! We arrived on Sunday afternoon just in time to catch some Football just a 5 minute walk down the hill at La Ropa Beach. We stayed for 7 days and did not want to leave. The view of La Ropa Beach from the infinity pools was amazing. The grocery store in town has anything and everything that you need. The many restaurants give you a variety of places to eat.
