Overview

Zihuatanejo Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Zihuatanejo information:

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)!

Surrounding area

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.

Hi Robin-

Everything worked out perfectly! We made it here without any issues, met Freddy, made ourselves at home, had a cold beer, enjoyed the sunset and had a wonderful seafood dinner.

Thanks so much for your wonderful directions and instructions. The condo is fantastic.

The "Best Terraza" in Zihuatanejo!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults (50ish and 60ish) staying at Casa Agave Blue for 3 weeks and had a very comfortable and relaxing vacation. The condo has everything we needed and has more than enough room for all of us.......it's quite large. Beds are comfortable and each bedroom has it's own bathroom with shower. We had our own washer which we loved and our clothes dried in no time on the drying racks on the deck. The terraza is absolutely amazing and huge. There is never a time of day when you can't find either sun or shade. The wicker lounges and chairs had very thick cushions and were so comfortable to relax in. There are 2 large umbrellas also that we didn't even need. We played cards every morning and evening and ate all our meals (when we cooked) on the large dining table on the terraza. It was perfect and you never get sick of the view of the bay. The dipping pool is AMAZING and could easily have accomodated all 5 of us at once. Yes, there are 77 stairs, plus a bit more level path going back up to the condo from the beach, but we all managed fine and it got easier after a couple of times. Great excercise! Walking along LaRopa beach was great with lots of bars and restaurants along the way.We took a bus to Barra de Potosi....the beach there is awesome. Our favorite beach by far was Las Gatas beach, which we could easily walk to over the rocky path to the left. You can also take a water taxi there and back and book the time you want to be picked up. The water is so clear and the beach is beautiful. Lots of bars and restaurants there also. We caught a bus down by the beach when we wanted to go into town and if we didn't want to walk the stairs back up to the condo, we took a taxi home which took us right to our door. Don't pay more than 50 pesos from downtown to the condo! I suggest you go downtown much later in the day when it's a bit cooler. It also gets much more livelier then. If we had any questions or issues in the condo, Fredy would respond quickly. He's very nice! Robin will email you also now and then to make sure everything is fine and he's got lots of tips for you. We loved Zihat and when we do go back, we will give you a call Robin. Thanks for having us.

Fabulous Set up

  • 5 of 5

This property has a fabulous set up. The deck has great views both by day and night, so great to enjoy your coffee outside in the mornings and wine outside at night. The perfect place to unwind. The fact that all of the rooms have their own full bathrooms makes it really comfortable for 6. The location is ideal just a quick walk to the beach with the most beautiful water. A great beach for swimming, paddleboarding, walking or just enjoying a cool drink at one of the restaurants. There were several different restaurants to choose from with lots of fresh seafood on the menu. Just so easy to enjoy the day there. My favorite memories are from this beach, however there are plenty of places to see in this area. It was great to be able to dine in on the terrace as the set up is perfect for enjoying the night views. There are also some great restaurants very close by serving some of the best seafood and mexican cuisine. We enjoyed the option of dining in or out. This was a great get away and would highly recommend this property both for location and set up. Enjoy

Excellent property, relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property from Nov 8-20th with our friends. It was well set up for all 6 of us. We had plenty of privacy in the suite with each of us having our own bathrooms and comfortable beds. The property is very quiet and we slept like babies. The views were stunning of the bay by day or the stars or the lights of Zihuatenjo by night. The property is completely set up to make a fabulous meal and socialize or you can find your own spot on the deck, in the deck tub , dining area or living room to hang out. We did go out for a number of meals as well. The best restaurants of Zihuat are a few minutes away- I had the best red snapper I have ever had at one of the local restaurants- and the prices of the local restaurants reflect excellent value with beautiful views whether its on the hillside or beachside. The host of this property leaves suggestions and contact information for these restaurants.

Access to the beach is easy and takes minutes. It was nothing to grab your towel and head to the beach- grabbing a lounge chair at Rossy's and enjoying the day. The staff at Rossy's was magnificent- tending to your every need and Deisy's massage's were available right outside of Rossy's- I would highly recommend both. This part of the beach is full of warm, friendly local people who are authentically kind. I felt completely safe and looked after all over this area. There were no timeshares or pressure from anyone to buy anything. There were no hassles on this beach.

I would highly recommend this 3 bedroom property. It is comfortable,private, quiet, well maintained, well situated, and excellent value . This property and this beach offers all of the comforts of a luxury resort with the charm of authentic mexico.

Fabulous 3 Bedroom View Condo

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely location and 3 bedroom condo located at Punta Marina. The condo has a fabulous generous sized terrace that overlooks Playa Ropa, an outdoor eating area that can accommodate 6 comfortably and a great soaking/cooling off pool that is perfect to relax in after your fabulous day in the sun. Every morning I sat on the terrace with my coffee and enjoyed the birds and the view and the peace and quiet. There is a lovely pool on the property for the days one does not care to venture out but if you do, the beach and all it has to offer is very close. There are 77 stairs down to the beach; for those that can't do stairs, the beach is a quick 3 -5 min drive down the hill and there are so many wonderful restaurants on the beach with delicious food. The condo is clean, well equipped and the bedrooms are generous in size, each has its own bathroom and it is quiet at night for sleeping! The condo complex is well maintained and the entire area is very safe; many times I was on my own walking around and I felt very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property if you want a great holiday.

Memorable Holiday in Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Zihuatanejo for the first time over the Christmas and New Year period. Travelling from the UK with our two children (8 and 9), what a relief it was after a long haul flight to only have a 20 minute car journey to Casa Agave Blue

The property itself is very child friendly with no cumbersome stairs and provides lots of space. The three bedrooms are double rooms with en-suite facilities and all come with air conditioning, which is ideal for those balmy evenings.

The living room space with kitchen area is great for socialising when you are cooking in the kitchen, though we did most of our cooking outside on the BBQ.

The outside space is the real ‘WOW’ factor of this property with a huge terrace, big enough to spend most of your waking hours, as it not only has a dining table and chairs, but also a seating area to enjoy the panoramic views over La Ropa towards the town of Zihuantanejo. We were fortunate enough to enjoy all the goings on of the Christmas and New Year period, which the Mexican’s really know how to celebrate, so the surrounding area was alive with wonderful music and fireworks into the evening. Also on the terrace is a fabulous dipping pool in which to enjoy the views while relaxing in the sun – or if you have kids, to cool them down and have some fun!

Within the complex is a good sized swimming pool with waterfall feature, where we spent most mornings for a little exercise and sun bathing.

We would thoroughly recommend staying at Casa Agave Blue not only for the accommodation and views that it has to offer but also the close access to the beach at La Ropa, the great shopping facilities and restaurants at Zihuatanejo, and all the other various opportunities for snorkling, fishing, body boarding – to name but a few.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Agave Blue. We enjoyed the privacy, and Mexican decor of the condo. The view from the very large deck overlooking the bay and beach is stunning enjoyed the infinity pool . We walked to the beach Restaurants La Perla was our favorite The condo was very clean on arrival.an we were greeted by Fred as promised, Agave Blue is well set up for eating in. We spent time at the beach as well as by the large swimming pool. Highly recommended.
