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!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

A Real Treat!

  • 5 of 5

We adored staying in this lovely condo. When we walked through the doors it literally took our breath away. The view is spectacular, the condo is such a nice size and so well appointed and we just felt thoroughly spoiled. We kept pinching ourselves to see if it was real!

The bedrooms worked out perfectly for our size of family. I loved listening to the waves at night and waking up to that view. I can't tell you how many photographs I took of those rocks, they changed color with the various moods of the sky. I couldn't keep my eyes off of them.

We mostly hung out at the adult pool or on your upper deck. I have no idea where the days went, it seemed like they ended all too soon every day and I'd wonder what all I'd accomplished and really I'd have to admit it wasn't much, other than I did get through a lot of books. The weather was so fantastic too. We had a day of rain early on and then sun, glorious sun ever after.

We loved Marabelle, the maid, and had Lillianna cook for us twice which was a real treat. We used Mario any time we needed a cab, he was wonderful. We felt very well cared for. We had delicious dinners out, my favorite restaurants being Tentaciones (where we celebrated my husband birthday), Coconuts, and El Mare.

New Years Eve was amazing. I'd never seen anything so spectacular in my life. The lanterns being sent out to sea to begin with, followed by LED lit balloons from the neighboring property, and then those fireworks that were so close and extravagant. It was a real treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking a few moments to share about your stay in our home. I have a huge smile on my face right now because I happen to be leaving to Ixtapa for a few days and after reading this, I am counting down the hours. We take such great care to provide all amenities that you may need to just have a good experience. Our goal is for you to arrive and have a worry free stay. We absolutely love those rocks out in the ocean directly ahead of our condo too. At certain times of the year, the sun sets just in between and it's magic. We sure hope you and your family will visit again in the near future. There is always room for a little more relaxation in our lives, right? Hasta pronto!

Very Special

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse unit was superb. The owners did everything to make your stay enjoyable. Their property manager Claudia extended every courtesy. The roof top deck was a great party venue. The price was very fair.

In short, if you want to stay in Ixtapa this is the place.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Ixtapa 10 times now and always stayed at hotels. Four couples wanted to go this year so we thought it would be fun to try something different. We're really glad we did and everyone really enjoyed it! The condo and the rooftop terrace are just beautiful! We spent a lot of time on the rooftop just enjoying the views and the sunset. The condo is nicely furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Couldn't have asked for more!

Also, lots of great restaurants are right across the street (The Generals, Emilo's, LaFushion, Tequila Salsa, etc.) so the location is very convenient!

Every year we have gone to Ixtapa, we've had to take turns getting up at 5am to get chairs. Not exactly what you want to do when you're on vacation. This year, that was not the case so we loved that! There were plenty of chairs at the pool (both in the shade and in the sun).

Bottom line, we loved the condo and the whole experience! Thank you to Barbara and Giorgio for sharing your beautiful place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing about your experience staying in our condo and at Amara. We are very fortunate to be located right in the middle of Ixtapa where you really don't need to take a cab unless you want to explore Zihuatanejo or beyond. Glad to hear that Amara was even more quiet than usual. Usually a family can only have use of 2 lounge chairs, a rule created when during holiday seasons, it started becoming like you mentioned and families stated reserving many chairs. But what we love about Amara is it's rarely crowded and there's room for every visitor. The best part is our rooftop lounge where you can get away from any type of crowd and use our personal lounge chairs. One of the benefits of the penthouse level as I am sure you'd agree. We love it up there! Thanks again for your review and we look forward to you visiting again in the near future.

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! Giorgio and Barbara

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!
