About The Owner

I own my own business in Calgary Canada. My family and I love to come to our home in Ixtapa and we visit here often. We enjoy sharing our home with family and friends.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Ixtapa

We chose Ixtapa for the weather (a very consistant 30+ degrees year round!) and we chose Amara because of the individual unit sizes and its location in Ixtapa. You can't beat Amara's location - directly off the main area of downtown Ixtapa and in the middle of Ixtapa beach.

What makes this condo unique

We travel with our 3 children and we have found it very difficult to find accomodations that suit our lifestyle and provide us with enough individual space to truly relax. We like the comforts of home and what better way to have them when you travel then to have your own place. We have outfitted our unit with many upgrades and with only the finest furniture and beds for our casa. We like the conveniences that TV and WiFi bring and I love to send my business associates views from my 'office' when i'm working remotely from the balcony in Ixtapa!

Wow! Fantastic unit. You get what you pay for.

  • 5 of 5
The Amara is by far our favorite place to stay at in Ixtapa. The proximity to the town with its wonderful restaurants and shops can't be beat and the pool and beach area are second to none. That being said, we have stayed in a number of different units in the Amara and have enjoyed all of them, but there is something to be said about the old saying "you get what you pay for". This unit was so perfectly appointed for our family that it stands out well above the others we've stayed in. Conveniences are everywhere. Big flat screen TV's, fast personal Wifi, X-box, Apple TV, NetFlix. Comfy beds, plenty of extra pillows, nice shower heads, awesome deck furniture. The storage locker had beach and pool toys, floats, boogie boards, sand shovels... Everything we needed. You can easily tell that the owners care about their renters comfort and needs. The owner Jason, provided an information package with details from what to expect at the airport, how to avoid getting suckered into a time share sale, getting a taxi, helpful descriptions of activities to do and recommendations of restaurants. Believe me, we've been to Ixtapa 7 times and the info in his package was even helpful to us. The unit is obviously well taken care of. The kitchen was renovated, they have a huge 10 person dining table, all the AC units worked, simple things like extra batteries for the remotes were easily available. It felt like everything was thought of and taken care of. I know there were cheaper units available to rent, but this place was totally worth the extra couple bucks a night. Remember, you get what you pay for.

Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5
So this is one of those reviews that you know you have to write to do the right thing, but you don't really want to. Why? Because someone might take my dates next time. And, there will be a next time.

This place is absolutely perfect. I don't do hotels. And, I'm spoiled. I want to feel as comfortable on vacation as I do in my own house. Check the box, this place did it! I need space and a kitchen so I don't have to drag the kids out in the morning for breakfast. This place had both space and a full kitchen. We had 4 adults and 2 kids. And if our friends (2 more adults and a child) had decided to join, we would still have had room. Everything was very well maintained and clean. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything in working order. The apple tv allowed us to watch our iTunes shows and movies as well as Netflix. Kids were happy when they just had no more energy at the end of the evening to move or do anything but stare at the screen. We didn't use the game consoles or any of the other tv's. The balcony was peaceful and afforded the view exactly like in the pictures. LOVED, LOVED having coffee out there in the morning and a beer in the evening. The beds were very comfortable and the selection (twins, kings, double...) meant everyone found something to their liking. The AC kept it VERY cool even on low in the main room. The bedrooms were all had their own units and were adjustable to each occupants liking.

The complex itself is great. It was not crowded and no one was partying like a rock star. The family pool is HUGE and clean. We were there the week before Easter so it was not at all crowded, but honestly,that pool is so big that there must be room for everyone even at full occupancy.

The beach in front of the complex is beautiful. However, we didn't find it swimmable. My kids and husband played in the whitewash a bit and we remembered about the boogie boards and that gave some more fun. But, you didn't walk out into that water and just relax. The waves were big, and the undertow pretty strong. But, we loved being at the beach since it was so relaxing and pretty.

Our beach time was spent in Zihau at La Ropa, although we also went to Las Gatas and Isla Ixtapa and found both of those to have nice water where you could swim and snorkel.
Amara is in a great location as a stepping off point for all the adventures in the area. My children have already decided that we HAVE TO get this same condo when we go back. Ok, kids, if you say so.

Ixtapa Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to Ixtapa and were excited when we arrived and found the condo, weather and scenery just as Jason described it. It was beautiful and the weather was perfect every day. The condo was so nice and our family of 8 had a lot of room. Jason did a great job answering all of our questions and giving us so many suggestions. We would definitely recommend renting from Jason.
Some of our favorites were swimming in the pool each day, beach massages, walks on the beach. We spent one day on Ixtapa Island which was beautiful and fun.
Some of our favorite restaurants were Deborah's, Tequila & Salsa and a special dinner at Villa de la Selva - the view was breathtaking.

Outstanding condo with abundant room for everyone. Was very clean and all amenities functioned as described. Breath-taking sunset view from the balcony. All staff was very friendly and I would not hesitate to go again. I will definitely recommend this place to anybody going to Ixtapa.

Great place for varied groups

  • 5 of 5
Just spent 3 weeks in this 4 plus bedroom condo. The condo is roomy and comfortable and easily accommodated 3 couples the first week, 5 family members the second week and a group of 5 friends the last week. The central location in the beach is superb- great for early morning walks, tanning, swimming, watching glorious sunsets. Parasail, go fishing, get a great massage all from the beach. Fabulous restaurants in the area. Loved Coconuts and El Faro, Villa de la Selva for dinners, Mama Norma's for breakfast. Condo is adequately stocked for doing your own cooking. The pool and pool staff are excellent. All our concerns and wishes were immediately addressed by all staff. Awesome view from the balcony. Enough activities to keep you busy if you want to be. Shopping nearby. Would recommend this property for sure.
