Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Welcome to “ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE” - Imagine looking out over the Bay & Town of Zihuatanejo far south on the Mexican Riviera; you first see the sun rising on the fishing boats, catamarans and the occasional cruise ship before dwelling on famed Playa La Ropa. After hours of enjoying consistent 25+ Celsius/85 Fahrenheit, (and a dip in the beckoning pool), it's back to the pleasant shade of the large “terraza” in time to watch the sun setting on hills surrounding Zihuatanejo Bay and finally in to the azure of the Pacific Ocean.
The magic of the fabulous views looking out over famous Playa La Ropa Beach, with your tastefully decorated Casa having many accents uniquely Mexican. The approximately 2200+ square feet of space includes living/dining area, supported with a very functional kitchen for those that want to self-cater; there is also a barbecue and wine/beer fridge on the 700 square foot deck with hammock & tropical plants. All rooms have ceiling fans as well as air conditioning.
This relaxing fishing village is now a vibrant yet quiet retreat for holiday makers. Most cruise ship lines used to include Zihua in it's destinations for good reason. To this day you can wander down to the fish market every day and buy dinner caught that morning. (Or rent a boat and skipper to catch your own bounty of the sea)!
Within a 15 minute taxi ride there is the drama of over 10 kilometres of beautiful beaches, local 'Enramadas', (outdoor cafes); $1 beers; beach-side massages and body surfing. Or grab the clubs or tennis racquet and head for nearby Ixtapa for a round or a set.
Playa La Ropa
This local beach is just steps away from Agave Blue; where warm waters for swimming and snorkeling abound. Choose from about 20 beach-front restaurants from budget to 5 star. Discover the gem of Las Gatas, (Cats Beach), for a day of secluded tanning and water activity in this compact reefed bay with crystal clear blue/green water. Walk there over the rocks or take a water taxi for about 20 pesos.
|Christmas & New Year times negotiable from Dec 18th to Jan 6th. $345 per night (7 night minimum) Housekeeping service available at $18 per day. Authentic Mexican cook available at $18 per dinner plus food cost.|
Agave Blue is a true gem. You never really know until you get to a vacation rental if it is going to be as billed but this was everything and more. I had a great feeling because of how attentive Robin, the owner, was in setting up the booking and being available. Went with our family for a week over spring break and it was fantastic. 3 rooms, all clean with their own bathrooms. Infinity pool was great and staff, especially Freddy, was fantastic. The condo even comes with a "local" cellphone so you can make local calls if needed. Kitchen is well equipped, wifi is fast, deck is amazing, condo pool quiet and well maintained. Easy walk to Playa Ropa and all the fun. We also went to Carmelita's in Zihua Centro--unbelievably good. Went off the beaten path to El Tiberon de la costa in Ixtapa--best seafood in a place with amazing seafood (we had a rental car which makes this place easier to get to). This is the place we will come to for our next trip to Zihua!
We just returned from two weeks in this fantastic condo! To start with, Robin was wonderful to deal with and full of helpful tips and suggestions. Although this was our 4th trip to Zihua it is always good to get someone else's idea's and opinions. The condo itself was perfect, with three bedrooms which all had their own washrooms with an additional 4th one in the hallway. The patio itself is the best part as it is huge, has very comfortable furniture and the most gorgeous views. We sat there every night sipping our end of day cocktails! The dipping pool on the patio was wonderful especially after climbing the 77+ stairs to the condo daily! We went to the beach or town every day so by the time we left everyone had excellent calf muscles lol! The kitchen has all you need to create all your meals and a blender for additional treats. We only ate out twice and both times were disappointing so having a totally stocked kitchen was a bonus. As others have suggested Fredy is always available, helpful and quick with responses to any queries. All in all an excellent time had by all, we would strongly recommend this place! Thank you again Robin, it was absolutely perfect!
We spent 3 weeks at robin's condo in January of 2016. Robin is a great owner/host. He was very easy to deal with and very responsive. For example the air conditioner in the second bedroom quit working. Robin had a new unit installed within 2 days. He has Freddy on site who is an absolute bonus for guests. He is very personal and really looks after robins guests. Freddy's wife is the housekeeper so it all works seamlessly. The condo is very comfortable, large, and the sun deck has left some great memories. The view is second to none. The proximity to la Ropa beach is a short 5 minute walk. Would we stay here if we return to Zihuatanajo.......hands down.....u bet.....thanks Robin it was great
My first time with Homeaway. I was honestly nervous... We discovered a wonderfull mexican apartement , nicely decorated , spacious , a balcony with lots of flowers and room for a living-room, a dining space and a big spa.We practicly lived on the balcony since the hard sun arrived only in the late after noon. The view was amazing! There is a big pool where you could do laps! All this near a superb beach , lots of restaurants , nice city-mercado-fish-market and activities. But for us the best was how calm this place was and how safe and friendly(respectfull) the people from Zihua are. Mr Hill really made everything easy for us!He did more than answer our questions! Je recommande ,sans aucune retenue, ce petit paradis à quiconque veut se ressourcer , profiter du soleil et bien manger! Ça ne peut pas être plus facile! Appartement chaleureux , propre , décoration locale , belles salles de bain , superbe vue d'un immense balcon comprenant salon-salle à diner-spa . M. Hill a été beaucoup plus qu'un propriétaire pour nous avec ses très bons conseils. Merci encore ++ on y retournera certainement!!
We and one other couple stayed a week. The deck is probably one of the best features of the Punta Marina condos and Robin's is one of the best, because of its relative seclusion, furnishings and dipping tub . We ate all of our breakfasts and most dinners there, played bridge, barbequed and looked at the views, including ever changing activity on La Ropa. We have stayed in other locations in Zihuatenejo , including a new condo above the other end of La Ropa beach, and at hotels across the bay. This has the shortest walk to the beach and to public transportation to the town center. Even so, cab fares in Zihuatenejo are a bargain compared to other Mexican resort towns. During our stay here, we made frequent stops at our favorite bakery, Panaderia Antiqua, which is near the plaza by the bay and had lunch at the little Quesadilla restaurant which is located on the outside of the central market. Our favorite restaurant was El Agave, a small European type second story open air restaurant. Try their Mexican red blend wine. We definitely hope to stay in Robin's condo when we return to Zihuatenajo.
Absolutely perfect location. Steps from the beach. yet absolute tranquility in the condo. Listening to the waves from the comfort of the deck was a very nice bonus. The layout of this unit is fabulous, The bedrooms are all a generous size with ensuite bathrooms in each. There was not a comfort missing. Being able to enjoy meals in with such a fabulous view was a real treat. This is a great set up, starting with the condo itself and the support from Robin to ensure a truly relaxing getaway. There was not a worry in sight. The beach is glorious and so close it easy to pop down for the day or just a quick swim. It does not take long to get comfortable with the area. In walking distance they are many options for restaurants, yoga and great paddle boarding. Thank you Robin, one of the best vacations I've had!!!
The condo is absolutely amazing, the location is beautifully breathtaking we stayed for a week and it was by far the best week ever. Super accommodating and incredible.
This property is located in the most perfect location to enjoy the most fantastic vacation anyone could ask for. The living space is the perfect layout and size for all my family to visit. Kitchen is well equipped for having a relaxing evening at home . The view from the fabulous deck is a bonus and the cold tub on the deck with this fabulous view makes it even more special. Robin, thank you for all your help and suggestions on where and what to do while on vacation in this lovely spot.
We just returned from Zihua and enjoyed an absolutely perfect stay at Robin's condo. The location is ideal - gorgeous views of the water and just a short walk to the beach. The condo and location is very quiet at night and close enough to the water you can hear the ocean. The condo had everything we needed. We cooked at home a couple nights and went to a number of local restaurants. Overall we felt very safe and comfortable. We walked down to the beach everyday to dip in the ocean, but could have been equally happy staying on the terrace and taking in the views. Can't wait to plan our next trip!
Great location at the end of La Ropa beach with a spectacular view back to Zihuatanejo. A few steps (to keep you fit) to the beach with good swimming and a wide selection of beachside (or near) restaurants. Also easy and cheap local taxi or bus service into town if you don't want to walk (about 25 minutes along the beach). The property has a great deck for lounging and dining with those lovely views and the complex has a decent sized swimming pool if you want to spend a lazy day on a lounger with a book instead of hitting the beach. All bedrooms have great roomy bathrooms and a/c,, but the ceiling fans are really all you need. A great stay, highly recommended.
We highly recommend this Condo. The Location was excellent and Beach access was a lot easier than anticipated. We really enjoyed the Patio and the View was a Killer. The Onsite Staff ( Freddy) was very helpful. Loved the Pool and Neighbors Sincerely Dennis and Rosie Conklin
I've stayed a lot of places in my life but this house right here is where I'll come back every year. The most beautiful view. Felt more comfortable than I ever have. The staff and the owner were incredible. Robin thank you for letting me enjoy a small piece of heaven. Gracias. Hope to be back next year
