Ixtapa Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 1 - 8)

Our 2,200 sq/ft luxury condo is situated in the exclusive Amara on the beach in the best tower (A). Conveniently located in the heart of Ixtapa (Mexican Riveria) nestled among white sands a mere walking distance from casual and fine dining, Marina Ixtapa Robert von Haage golf course, clubs, shopping and entertainment. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo have much to offer for activities including: shopping, restaurants, golf, a zipline adventure park, snorkeling, scuba, and some of the best fishing in Mexico. Five minutes from Zihuatanejo and twenty minutes from the airport.

Luxurious living in a peaceful gated community under 24 hour security watch. This suite is located on the 7th floor with a main living/dining area and not one, but TWO king master bedrooms (with flat screen TV’s) that open up to breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean and exquisite rainbow sunsets, fall asleep serenaded by the sound of breaking waves. The master bedrooms and living/dinning area give you a romantic 180 degrees of unobstructed, panoramic ocean view, off a private terrace that runs the WHOLE length of the condo!

Two additional rooms face the golf course and each of these has lush tropical mountain views and stunning panoramic portraits of Ixtapa. Each bedroom is complete with a fan, air-conditioning and its own bathroom for maximum privacy. The mountain view bedrooms have two twin beds in one and a queen bed in the other. The residence combines the privacy of home with the feel of a high-end vacation resort.

The expansive kitchen area which includes granite bar, stainless appliances and a gas range,. You can hire a cook by the day to shop and prepare your meals for you or if decide to take advantage of the inexpensive dining opportunities just outside your door. All water in the condo is purified so you can take chilled water and ice from the refrigerator or any tap with confidence. Off the kitchen is additional sleeping accommodations, the service quarters, has one double bunk bed. This is also where you will find the full size washer and dryer.

During the evening take a seat on the impressive baloney, which opens up to the entire great room and watch gorgeous sunset over the islands over an icy-cold beer, chilled glass of wine or perhaps it is the “hour of the gin and tonic”. Then perhaps enjoy the flat-screen TV and home theater system or use the free and secure wireless network service available in the condo and throughout the grounds so you can tell the world about your good fortune. Take one of the two elevators just outside your front door that service just 30 condos down to the pool and the beach

Spend lazy afternoons reading under a canopied poolside, or take in a perfect cloudless day floating in the beautiful infinity pool or the adult only pool. The infinity pools border the beach making it possible to hang on the edge and enjoy the views and people watch.

A small separate wading pool provides ideal afternoon entertainment for smaller children. You can enjoy a delicious variety of inexpensive drinks and snacks made by Amara's personal private bartender with snacks, shady tables and endless views.

Go though carefully manicured foliage of beautiful flowers and palms and the gate to the vast expanse of pristine sand and clear, warm sapphire blue ocean. Here you can jet-ski, parasail or banana boat ride or just take a massage in a shaded hut right on the beach for about $20, or even go swimming with dolphins. Enjoy your private palapa and sink your feet into the sand while you enjoy every minute of your own tropical paradise. Not for you today, well, a gym, a business center, and paddle tennis courts are also available on the grounds.

Paradise Ah! You will be back year after year whether a family or a couple.

Beachfront Property with Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I recently traveled to Ixtapa for some much-needed R&R, and this unit offered everything we could ever possibly dream of! The ceiling-to-floor glass sliding doors provide breathtaking views of the ocean and, when open, create an entire wall of open air in the living room. In addition, the end-to-end balcony gave us an opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and a cocktail at sunset in the evening, while enjoying the romantic vista. If we return to Ixtapa, we would absolutely stay in this unit again, if only for the sliding glass doors and large balcony! Most nights, we slept with the sliding door in our bedroom open and fell asleep to the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the shore. The unit is well-stocked with plenty of towels, sheets and kitchen dinnerware for large groups. Everything seemed relatively new or gently used and was in excellent condition. There is a secure door-code entry system and an in-unit safe for valuables. Although we hardly used the washer and dryer, it was certainly a bonus to have the brand new appliances available. The beach is also very easily accessible from this unit – just take the elevator downstairs and walk through the pool area out to the beach. Its location is very convenient for quick, mid-day trips back to the unit to grab a book or eat lunch before returning to the pool/beach.

Amara is an outstanding complex with well-maintained, lush landscaping, two beautiful swimming pools, a Tiki hut bar and beachfront access. It also has a fitness center which we frequented most mornings. The 24-hour gated security offers a level of comfort to those not familiar with the area; we never felt unsafe during our stay at Amara. Ixtapa has myriad local, authentic Mexican restaurants that are all very affordable and offer a variety of cuisine, and they’re all within walking distance to Amara (or, you can take a short taxi ride to Zihuatanejo for additional dining options). Our personal favorite was El Faro, located at the top of a cliff overlooking the beach at Amara with spectacular views while dining outdoors. If you are considering a trip to Ixtapa/Zihautanejo, you will not be disappointed with this vacation rental!

Beautiful Vacation Condo with an Excellent Owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and this condo helped make that happen. We were 3 couples and one single in this 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom condo and never felt in the least bit crowded. The condo is just as described; it is beautiful, comfortable, clean, and very well maintained. One thing that may not be readily clear from the website and a feature that really distinguishes this condo from others at the Amara is the extended balcony. If you look at the Amara from the outside, you will see the extended balconies on only a handful of the floors. Not only is it wonderful to wake up and walk directly outside your bedroom to the balcony, but it truly opens the entire condo space and makes it feel much roomier than the condos that do not have the extended balconies. We hired a maid/cook for four days to cook breakfast and snacks. It was simply heaven to wake up to the smell of breakfast cooking and coffee brewing without having to lift a finger. The cost of that service was amazingly affordable. Our cook also did the shopping for us, so it couldn't have been easier. She made cerviche, guacamole and homemade sauces to die for. Since we had breakfast in our room or down at the pool bar, and the restaurants in Ixtapa/Zhiju are so wonderful, we didn't use the kitchen much, but everything was in perfect working order and just as described and pictured on the website. Another feature that sets this condo apart from others is the electronic key pad on the door. We were part of a large group and we watched all week as others had to look for their keys to go upstairs to their condos. It was very liberating to never have to do that (one less hassle). Amara location provided easy access to restaurants and shopping right across the street. But there were always taxis right out front to take you to Zihju or anywhere else. The beach is so beautiful and we enjoyed our daily walks on the beach .... down to the massage tents for a one hour massage (200 pesos)! As the description says, there is a gym and from the outside it looks really nice, but even though we packed workout shoes, we never made it inside the gym. It was our vacation after all :-). The owner of this condo was extremely easy to work with and provided much useful information and tips. We never felt any concerns and no problems of any kind arose. The staff at the Amara are so attentive and worked nonstop on cleaning and beautifying the property. As Ixtapa visitors of 15+ years, we wholeheartedly recommend this condo.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed 10 wonderful days in Ixtapa! LOVED the condo! It's beautifully furnished and had all the amenities needed while on vacation. The best part was the full-length terrace. So great having all that room outside - especially in the evenings to watch the amazing sunsets! Food and drinks were great at the pool and we always felt safe with the 24-hour security. My family has stayed at The Amara several other times, but this unit is by far our new favorite. Looking forward to returning next year. Thanks for everything, Paul!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Dear Paul, we just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you so much. We had an absolutely splendid vacation at your home in Ixtapa. It is absolutely lovely and the views are magnificent. We were treated to a fabulous sunset every evening and sunrise every morning. The beach was perfect and we really enjoyed the small town atmosphere of Ixtapa. We also met several other Canadians while there and had a great time swapping stories. The best part of our vacation however came about on the first evening we arrived. We decided to share some wine out on the balcony at sunset and while my other half and I were snuggled and watching the sun go down he dropped to one knee and proposed. I could not have imaged a more magical location to get engaged. It was perfect. Your home in Ixtapa will always have a very special place in our hearts and we plan to return as soon as we can. Thanks for being so wonderful to us during the time we were going down due to Hurricane Sandy. Stay well and we will definitely keep in touch.

Stay at AMARA condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our son and wife at your condo in Ixtapa. We found the condo to be wonderful! The views from both the living room and bedrooms was fantastic--what a sunset!! There are sliding glass doors the full length of the living room/dining room. It was really nice to have a large deck to have morning coffee on, and to catch the breeze later in the day. Water pressure is excellent, and plenty of warm water to take a shower with.

Cooking facilities are more than adequate, and the condo includes a washer/dryer for your use.

I have to say that this is one of the nicer facilities we have stayed at during the many years we have vacationed in warm places.

It was so nice to have all the space, even though there was only the four of us and a baby.. We originally booked a larger condo thinking that additional family members would have been able to join us.

We were duly impressed with the pools and the outside area; the beach level pool depth is great for young children, and it was so nice to have the water in the pool warm. Most places we have been the pools have been too cold to swim in!

If we choose to come to Ixtapa again next year, we will definitely try to rent from you again.

We were sent rental instructions ahead of time that provided essential information about the units. All in all, we were very pleased, and I am one that is hard to please!!!

We love Ixtapa and Amara!!

  • 5 of 5

this is our 4th year in Ixtapa and our 3rd year staying in a condo at Amara. It is a great location, the pool is very nice with a beautiful view of the ocean from its zero edge!!

This property is well maintained and accurate in its description. The owner was very helpful with all of our questions prior to arrival and his manager Claudia, is great. We like this property because we can hop on the bus and get to the golf course easily and all restaurants across the street are good.

We also drank the filtered water from the fidge all week without any problems!!!

Thank you for sharing you little piece of paradise.
