Overview

Ixtapa Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The view from the 15th and 16th floor of this Penthouse is breathtaking! It is truly paradise here. Picture yourself relaxing on a private terrace at the top with 180 degree view of the ocean. Or, perhaps, admiring a spectacular sunset while in the private jacuzzi on the upstairs terrace. Words just can't describe the natural beauty of the little piece of heaven known as the Mexican Riviera. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy a carefree vacation.

The penthouse offers 4200 sq. ft. between 15th and 16th floors. You enter into a large living room and dining room with floor to ceiling glass sliders that open up from either side allowing you to bring the outdoors in. There are two Master Bedrooms each facing the ocean where you can step out onto the terrace to welcome another day in paradise. The other two bedrooms face the golf course and have a lush tropical view where you can also see the heart of Ixtapa across the street. The towers were designed where there are only 2 residences per floor so you will have privacy and be able to have the best of both worlds, oceanview and tropical beauty.

The location is right in the heart of Ixtapa. You can walk to restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques, shops, grocery stores, and drug stores. Amara Ixtapa is a new development located right on the main Ixtapa Beach, Playa El Palmar, where you will have all the amenities of a luxury resort, including daily maid service.

Guests can take the elevator down to beautifully landscaped grounds that includes 3 pools, one huge infinity pool for families that feels like it goes right into the ocean, another infinity pool for adults only, and a small wading pool for children. Guests can enjoy very reasonably priced drinks and snacks made by Amara's own bartenders. There is a gate that leads right to the sand where guests can enjoy private palapa's with lounge chairs.

Once you have discovered the beauty of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you will fall in love with this amazing place and return time and time again. Our hope is that you enjoy every minute of your stay at our place in Amara Ixtapa.

Happy Travels!

About The Owner

We fell in love with Ixtapa about 11 years ago. After vacationing there time and time again, we decided to buy our own little piece of paradise, Casa S.. We are the original owners of our home at Amara and can't be happier with our decision. One day our dream would be to spend four or five months a year there, but since we have younger children, that will have to wait a bit.

The warmth of the people in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo is unlike any we have experienced in our travels. We have thoughtfully furnished our home with many amenities that we know you will enjoy. We take pride in providing prompt responses to our potential guests either via email or phone.

We would love to open up our home to you and your family and friends to enjoy a wonderful vacation in sunny Ixtapa. Please come visit. We think you will be happy you did!

Magnificent Beach Location

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely found this property magnificent. It was our first time staying in a condo in Ixtapa and we chose the right place. The amenities and spaciousness exceeded our needs, and the views were breathtaking. We found Claudia, property manager, to be very efficient, personable, and professional. We are definitely planning a return trip .... perhaps a longer stay in 2016. Tourist attractions were within walking distance, but it is just so relaxing and quiet staying around the three pools on the gated property!

Owner's Response: We always love to hear the feedback of guests that have decided to try out a private home instead of one of the resorts in Ixtapa. So glad to know that you had a wonderful stay and it sounds like you've crossed over to the world of vacation rentals. We look forward to hosting you again in 2016!
We agree with you about having lots of options of getting out and doing tourist activities, but many times we, too, just relax by the pools or beach. i guess that's a huge part of a vacation, right? Just unwinding on a lovely beach and working on the relaxation part!

Happy 2015!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My family of 4 and our 2 friends, met in Ixtapa for a week long vacation. We chose the Penthouse for the 4 bedrooms and large terrace. The 6 of us fit perfectly in the condo, the adults took the 2 master suites, and the kids took the 2 back bedrooms. We had 1 extra boy, 16 yrs, who slept outside on the terrace couch (upstairs) for part of the stay and inside on the sofa for the other half. Even at 6'1" the sofa's suited him perfectly. We were greeted at arrival by Claudia who checked us in with the admin and took us to our room. The beach at Amara is gorgeous, waves but not too large, and the palapa's are perfect to a bit of shade. You can walk to other bars/restaurants along the beach too. We hung out on the upstairs terrace for 2 whole days, the plunge pool was perfect, there is shade if you need it and the upstairs bar and refrigerator kept the beer cold and not too far away. The location (hotel zone) of the Amara is great because across the street are several restaurants and bars. We watched football at "General's" which is just a very short walk across the street. It is a safe area we were fine with our 16 year olds walking around together without us. We had a chef, Ellie, who made a delicious meal for us which included fresh caught sailfish our boys had caught earlier in the day.

Pros: Owners and Property manager great to work with. Location is perfect - close to shops and restaurant, very safe. Beach is perfect for swimming and taking walks. Penthouse was was well equipped - had everything we needed. Terrace upstairs was a great bonus. View - great sunrise every morning.

Con: The only con, is the pool bar at the Amara - I wish it were a full service restaurant. The staff was wonderful and they kept the drinks flowing so that part is a pro... but the food was microwavable stuff, chips and salsa - its just a snack bar not a restaurant.

Change of Plans

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of six adults who have traveling together for 10+ years. We were originally booked in Cabo San Lucas and then hurricane Odile hit. Our hotel on the Pacific side was totaled. We all made the decision to change our vacation plans and go somewhere else. I started looking and found this beautiful penthouse in Ixtapa. It was perfect! The penthouse was awesome and we could not stop admiring the beautiful views. From the time we arrived until we left the we cannot say enough about the people of Ixtapa to the staff at the Amara, what great people. We needed a doctor one day and I called Claudia to ask where we could go and she sent one to us. It was someone's birthday on our trip and I called Claudia to ask about a bakery and she had one sent to us. Now that is service. We all have decided we will be returning to Ixtapa and hopefully to Barbara and Georgio's beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review, Diane. Giorgio and I are so very happy that our home and Ixtapa was a little silver lining to your Cabo trip cancellation. Ixtapa is a fantastic town where the beaches are top notch and the people are so warm you just want to return year after year. We can't agree with you more about our staff. Always ready and happy to go the extra mile. We sure hope you and your group have found a new favorite Mexico destination. Thanks for letting us be a part of that. Hope to have you back very soon!

Incredible Penthouse Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible one-week stay in Ixtapa. Ixtapa has a peaceful vibe, outstanding restaurants, easy shopping and pristine beaches. As beautiful as Ixtapa is what made our group of friends want to return annually was our beautiful condo. We were in the penthouse with two floors and four bedrooms, of which two of the bedrooms have full views of the blue Pacific Ocean. Waking up to this view was easy. The beds are very comfy and the bathrooms are very modern with walk in showers. The views from the living room/dining room are to die for with approximately 50 feet of glass windows from floor to ceiling. But the place where we spent many hours was the top floor that is the highest point on the beach. The L shaped balcony was the best place in Ixtapa to watch the incredible sunsets. The lounge chairs and sofas make it very comfortable for families or friends to share memorable moments and use the BBQ to eat together and afterwards enjoy a Jacuzzi. I travel a lot and have been all over Mexico but this was the only trip where spending time in the ‘room’ was a highlight. Outside the condo you have a quiet beach with palapas as well as an infinity pool. Importantly, planning the trip was so easy as Barbara and Georgio responded quickly to any questions, offered tips that provided an ‘insiders’ view of Ixtapa, and basically gave us an overview of how to make the most of our time.

Owner's Response: Mark, thank you so much for your review. We are actually here in Ixtapa now enjoying all the points you mentioned. We don't ever get tired of this view. Writing you from the balcony this morning as I have my coffee and take in this gorgeous ocean view. Life is good. We hope that you return to our home in the near future. When you have a moment, please like our page on Facebook: Casa Spadaro. Thanks again for choosing to stay at our home.

Couples vacation

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was in the Amara Penthouse. Four couples stayed for eight days and the space was great. We never felt crowded or like we were on top of each other. The private terrace was amazing. The views were spectacular and the added space was perfect for coffee in the morning while we planned our day, or using the grill in the evening to cook the fish we bought at the fresh fish market in town. The location is wonderful – located in the center of everything it seemed. We didn’t have far to walk if we wanted to go into Amara and we could walk the beach in both directions. If you look at the pictures and think the penthouse is nice, wait until you actually arrive – the pictures don’t do it justice. We found the owners extremely helpful and easy to work with. They offered suggestions on things to do and answered every question we posed. We highly recommend this rental property and hope to one day be lucky enough to stay there again.

Great Holiday!

  • 4 of 5
We quite enjoyed our stay. The Amara is a lovely, quiet building ( but don't be afraid to have music and have drinks on the deck late into the evening- everyone is very chill!) Very clean and well cared for building. The pools are really nice and the bar at the pools serves decent ( and cheap) drinks.The penthouse itself is quite nice, well appointment ( love the lamps!) and 2 of the 4 bedrooms have wonderful ocean views and access to the patio. The 2 back bedrooms would be great for kids ( or husbands who are in the dog house! haha!). Only complaint is the back bedrooms are noisier on Thurs, Fri, Sat as the night club music is quite loud. So not the best for light sleepers. But who goes to Mexico to sleep anyways :) The kitchen ( with WINE FRIDGE) was wonderful and the the especially wonderful upper terrace is very lovely. Great place for a large group to settle in for a few weeks! So many lovely restaurants really close- and not a far taxi ( or bus) ride into Zihat for some more lovely sites. Some must do's: In house chef- very inexpensive and a really wonderful meal and experience. Water Taxi to the Los Gatos Beach in Zihat and again to Ixtapa Island. Great warm ocean, clear water and good snorkling. Good Food: The Generals, Franks, Deborahs, Chili Beans and so much more! We found the easiest thing to do was ask around the pool and some of the regulars/owners will tell you where to go. Loved our stay, a holiday to remember.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We love to hear about our guests vacations.
We found the noise to bother our children on the weekends and that is why we installed the double paned windows in both of those rooms. After we did that, they now sleep through the night. It was a big improvement.
We hope you return to enjoy our place and Amara again in the near future.
