Greatest view in my opinion

  • 5 of 5

There are many wonderful things to do and see in the Ixtapa / Zihua area, but for my wife and I, simply spending time every day from the comfort of Ed's condo (and pool) - soaking up the view of Zihua bay was one of the most outstanding and magical for us personally. And of course it's well appointed, cleaned, and maintained. If you think it looks "too far" away on the map, it isn't. Simply step out the front gate and you likely will have a taxi going down the hill within 2 or 3 minutes, empty and ready to serve you, as they just dropped off someone who needed a ride higher up the hillside. That means no call to taxi company even necessary. And if you're in the slightest of decent condition, you can stroll downhill for 5 minutes and you're at the southern end of Playa la Ropa. From there you can initiate your stroll up the best beach on the bay, or clamber the trail over the rocks to Playa las Gatas (better footwear and physical condition needed). Also there's no loud music, disco, or bar sounds at all around - only the birds, insects, and the powerful, mesmerizing sound of the waves crashing below. My only hesitation in giving such a great review is that it might not be available the next time we want to stay there! Cheers.

Owner's Response: When you arrived and we met at the condo the first time it was for me a pleasure to watch both of you looking at the Zihuatanejo Bay. It was pure happiness. You both were in paradise and will never forget it. It was the same magic we felt when my wife and I saw the bay from the condo the first time and next day we bought the condo. The condo is telling me would like to have you and your wife back again as guests. Bradley, let me know when would you like to stay and I will make it happen. My best regards, Ed

outstanding view

  • 4 of 5

beautiful condo, great for family with older children. The owner (Ed) easily contacted if needed and speaks English. The hill or stairs down to the playa can be a bit of a challenge if walking is not your favorite thing to do. Taxis are plentiful, at a very reasonable price. Condo has everything you need and after a day at the beach, have a cool, refreshing dip in the private pool. We did have a problem with ants but rectified by Guerro and Jose (security) located right outside our door. Several restuarants within walking distance and the town of Zihau a short distance by bus. Beautiful view of downtown Zihau as the pics reflect. Definitely would go back.

In February my boyfriend, myself and some friends stayed at this condo. We had an amazing time. I meant to write a review right away but I kept forgetting. Guero and Jose were awesome. So friendly and welcoming, they helped us with anything we needed and were good getting us with directions and taxi to Zihuatanejo. The condo was great! Perfect for our group. I will definitely go back and definitely stay here again. Miss already the condo, and miss Zihuatanejo! Again sorry it took so long to write this.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Ed's unit at Vista Bay. The views from the living room and balconies off of the master and second bedroom of La Ropa beach and the bay are beautiful. The lights of the northern hill of Zihua at night are also great.

The unit is as pictured in the photos. The infinity pool is nice as well.

We rented a car and enjoyed driving in the City and places north. Getting to the unit from the airport is a bit tricky. Coming into Zihua turn left at the first light past the Sam's club on the main highway. Follow that road about a mile or so and you will see a left turn lane with a "La Ropa" sign. Follow that road all the way up to the Vista Bay Condominiums. Vista Bay is built into the side of the hill above the south end of La Ropa beach.

A large grocery/general merchandise store is pretty close. To get there take the road back down from the condo until you reach the roundabout and then turn right. It is about 10 blocks from there.

We checked out downtown Zihua just a bit and were non-plussed by the shopping for the most part. There is an outdoor market with the usual stuff if you like that kind of thing. Ixtapa is very touristy.

Playa Las Gratas is worth a day. We enjoyed a lounger and lunch and drinks at Ottilia which is near the end of the restaurants.

If you have a car, we recommend at least one day trip to Playa Troncones which is about 25 miles north. Exit the freeway to Ixtapa to the right just before you enter Ixtapa. Playa Troncones is serene with a beautiful beach, few people and big waves. We drove there twice and used the Present Moment Spa Resort as our home base. Yoga and other health classes. Kind of hippi-esque but we really liked the vibe, the staff and the owner Tom Morisette and his son Taylor who manage the place. To reach Present Moment turn right when the road to Playa Troncones ends at the beach. It is about a half mile north from there.

A dinner at La Casa Que Canto is very nice and romantic. La Escalleros which is near the condo has beautiful views of La Ropa and the bay. Paty's is a good place to lounge on La Ropa. We found the guide book in the condo to be very helpful.

The internet works reasonably well particularly if you are sitting in the TV area near the modem. You can watch Netflix but the trick to use the Sling TV unit.

The two guys who watch the place are very pleasant but as noted by others they do not speak a word of English. A smile is universal.

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from staying a month at Vista Bay Condo. The view of La Ropa beach is like a postcard! The Condo is equipped with top quality cookware & flatware. Anything you could possibly need. Mr. Guero & Mr. Jose maintain the property immaculately & took great care of us. Also taxi - Andres was very helpful & often translated for us. Vista Bay is within walking distance of Las Gatas, La Ropa, & La Madera beaches as well as several restaurants. We did not use the air conditioning very often, as we enjoyed the warm Mexican air. Great location & would recommend for quiet, peaceful vacation.

Bright, comfortable apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly like the pictures. It is spotless and very comfortable with everything you need for a relaxing stay; Mr. Guero was charming, and very welcoming. We took a taxi to the Zijuatanejo market which was is close, where we enjoyed shopping at the many excellent food stalls. You can explore all of Zuhuatanejo on foot and there are many local restaurants nearby Paseo del Pescador. We found the town charming with its beautifully handcrafts and friendly people. It is a friendly place and clean.

We do not recommend renting a car because the insurance is expensive and why rent a car if taxis are all over Zihuatanejo. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
