FABULOUS VIEWS, OVERLOOKING BEAUTIFUL LA ROPA BAY; STEPS FROM THE BEACH.

Zihuatanejo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 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/82 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 the Bay and finally in to the azure of the Pacific Ocean.

The magic of the fabulous views looking out over famous Playa Ropa Bay, 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 in all bedrooms.

Zihuatanejo information

This relaxing fishing village is now a vibrant yet quiet retreat for holiday makers. Most cruise ship lines 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Good morning Robin,



Just trying to adjust to being away from the beach! It was a lovely time and we thoroughly enjoyed your home.

We really did have a nice time - location was really good and we all benefited from the walk to/from the beach.

Thank you. I'm glad we found you!!

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.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Just returned from a ten day stay at Casa Agave Blue. Had a wonderful time. Just loved the patio that stretches from one end of condo to the other. Lovely view of Playa La Ropa. Beautiful flowers and plants to enjoy and a water feature that is soothing.
We enjoyed our breakfast and some of our dinners on the patio. After swimming the beach, we hiked up the hill and dipped into the lovely pool of the complex or the infinity pool in the condo. Both were lovely way to cool off.
We walked into town once, but most of the time we took the local bus, which was fine. One of our favourite restaurants in town was Fajita Queens. Great food and a lovely owner. Also Tata's.
We would return to Casa Agave Blue.

WONDERFUL 40TH BIRTHDAY AND 7 YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN ZIHUATANEJO!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Robin for sharing your beautiful home with us! We very much enjoyed every minute of our stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by Fredi who was more than helpful with the condo amenities and instructions. The condo looked exactly like the pictures online except the view is even more amazing than a picture could ever capture! We found ourselves enjoying the spacious terrazo every morning, afternoon and sunset. Easy walking access to the beaches and several restaurants was perfect for us who did not rent a car. Getting to town or to the grocery store was simple by taking a taxi when we needed. We walked to the cute downtown Ziha several times which gave us our exercise and people watching/meeting. What a great location! We so enjoyed the sunset view from the condo and the kitchen/grill made it easy to prepare our own meals when we wanted to stay in for the evening. The dipping pool was perfect for a quiet cooling off or taking a swim in the complex pool which was pretty much to ourselves most of the day. The complex itself is very quiet, peaceful and well cared for. Robin was always available via email for any recommendations (which were always perfect) and Fredi helped us navigate our taxis. We enjoyed the restaurants along the beach being so close to walk to for both casual and more upscale dining. We would definitely stay in Robin's home again on our next visit to Ziha. Our only complaint is that we didn't find this location sooner!

Spectacular, Fabulous views of famed Playa La Ropa Beach, (just steps away). 10 minutes to airport; 10 minutes to Ixtapa. Come visit us - and yes, you are now in the Tropics! Zihuatanejo lies about 250 kms north of Acapulco. Yes, the area is safe - this is one of the most popular stops for cruise ships in the entire Mexican Riviera. This is the beach made famous in the movie 'The Shawshank Redemption' - (for good reason)!

Golf: Two great courses within 15 minutes. (Robert Trent Jones and Marina Golf Course). Reasonable rates.
