Overview

Ixtapa Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps up to 4

You will truly enjoy your stay in our home on the 15th floor of the Bay View Grand Marina!

Upon opening the door, you will be greeted by an airy floor plan with windows providing incredible views of the beach and ocean. The view continues into the bedroom and onto the spacious terrace. Caution: you may find yourself spending more time in the condo than you anticipated!

The condo has been substantially upgraded during and after construction to provide the utmost in luxury, enjoyment, and privacy for your stay.

We wanted the layout of this condo to evoke a feeling of spaciousness beyond its one-bedroom size. We removed walls in the kitchen and bathroom in order to provide the most open and airy atmosphere, and changed showers to frameless glass. We had the furnishings custom made to provide maximum usability, while not obscuring views or pathways.

The open concept living area makes social occasions and meal preparation much more enjoyable. The gourmet kitchen features a large granite countertop and bar. While you can enjoy your meals here, you may often find yourselves dining in the open air on the patio.

On the 15th floor, the rumble of crashing waves creates the perfect ambiance for any occasion. The unit is only exposed to the beach and ocean, so the noises of traffic and nightlife will not spoil your serenity. Fall asleep to the sound of breaking waves, and open your eyes to expansive vistas of the wide beach, endless ocean, pleasing hills, and of course, the marina.

Enjoy the calm and privacy this condo offers. For your peace of mind and convenience, we have also installed a keyless-entry lockset.

While you are welcome to use the air conditioning, we have provided fans in the living room, the bedroom, and on the deck to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day and night. The living room and bedroom windows can all be shaded to your liking with high-end sun shade blinds. The bedroom also comes with blackout blinds – for those mornings when 6 a.m. is just too early to awake – view or not!

If beach-combing and sun-catching ever becomes too much, you can enjoy the large LCD TV and DVD movie library. There is also a Playstation 3 in the unit, with an assortment of games for family fun. We have also provided board games, as well as a modest library for your entertainment.

We have also provided bicycles, boogie boards, tennis rackets, and some other activity gear that can be hard to come by on vacation.

We hope you will find most of the comforts of home in our Ixtapa paradise, and we endeavour to support the community in which we do business. In this respect, we are very excited to donate a portion of our rental income to charities in the local area. If you have a favourite, please let us know!

**Please Note: Due to the increased prevalence of online scams and phishing, we highly recommend that you speak on the phone with any property owner before you send any money.

About Carleton Pope

Hi! We are Carleton and Valina Pope. Our first trip to Ixtapa was in 2006, when we picked the location to get married! We vacationed in other parts of Mexico several more times since then, but never found anywhere as beautiful or romantic as Ixtapa. We were delighted to return in 2010 and purchase this condo! You can read more about us, at the website of our Canadian business, Starstruck Labradors.

Carleton Pope purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carleton Pope chose Ixtapa

We were originally introduced to the BVG Residential building in Ixtapa in 2006. In 2010, as the BVG Marina neared completion, we made a long overdue trip to Ixtapa, and fell in love with building and the unit that we then decided to purchase. The view still takes our breath away every time we wake up!

What makes this condo unique

We feel strongly about supporting our communities, and we enjoy helping out with local issues in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo through the rental income from this condo! Thanks so much for your interest!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to Ixtapa but our first time using VRBO? What a wonderful first time experience. Carleton answered my "millions" of questions promptly and with humour when needed (I'm quite the worrier about first time ventures;). My worries were unwarranted. My fellow Canadian and his wife were a pleasure to deal with. When we arrived at BVG Marina we were greeted by the property manager who showed us into our little piece of heaven. The condo was very tastefully decorated and the views were stunning.

Margarito showed us the ropes and answered any questions we had. I was delighted to learn BVG Marina had an exercise class every day during the week at 9. YAY...I was able to work out in the beautiful gym to justify my over indulgence during vacation;). The instructor was so cute and the other participants were very welcoming.

The BVG Marina is amazing- great pools, great food, friendly staff and very clean.

Ixtapa is wonderful! So much to do and see. The weather is always perfect. Zihut is only a 10 minute bus ride away. The transportation system is very user friendly. Reasonable bus rates and taxi rates. There are lots of restaurant choices and shops for your 'snooping pleasure' in both Ixtapa and Zihut. Surrounding beaches make a nice day outing as well.

I think we've found our home away from home in Ixtapa.

Everything we needed and more....

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo.

It was everything we had hoped for in a rental and more!

The Bay View Grand is a very nice complex. We loved the location, the grounds,the pool and the beach.

I used the gym and the spa. We ate at the restaurant many times.

The condo itself is great - set up well and we never really needed anything.

We spent a lot of time on the patio. I will never forget that view!

Overall an excellent choice and we would definitely consider returning.

Frickin Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at Carleton and Valina's condo in Ixtapa over Xmas this year. The view is stunning. We absolutely loved it. There are two bathroom in the 1 bedroom condo, so it was really a luxury to each have our own bathroom. We didn't cook but we could have if we wanted to because of the great kitchen. We most loved looking out the massive windows at the ocean, and sitting on the balcony. We didn't even go in the pool once because the ocean is right there and it was so much fun.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful two week vacation here. The condo is exactly as poctured,the building is beautifilly maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food at the on-site restaurant is very good quality and very reasonably priced. We took advantage of the bicycles provided by the owners; a fun way to tour around, due to the great bicycle path. We rode out for cappucino in the mornings....fun!

The owners recommended a trip to Isla Ixtapa; a great suggestion. The swimming and snorkelling ( and food) is great there.

For fellow golfers the condo. Is the perfect location; the golf course is approx. three minute walk away from BVG and

It's of work is going into it to shape it up for the high season. Thanks C. And V. For renting us your place in Paradise!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks in this amazing apartment. The photos are true, the condo is beautiful, the view incredible. The pools, the beach were perfect. I had everything I needed for a great stay, big fridge, bikes, books, flat screen, wifi. Carleton kept in touch and their manager was available, although I needed nothing. The location next to the marina and the quiet area of the beach is great. Walking distance to center, and good restaurants. You can take the min-bus to Zihuatanejo (much bigger town for shopping). Don't miss Isla Ixtapa. I want to go back!!!!

Map

Car: not necessary

Sunny Ixtapa is the perfect getaway location if you're looking for great weather, peace, and relaxation! The area has the amenities of the larger vacation hotspots, without the massive crowds.

The town's proximity to the equator gives us 300 sunny days per year, and average daily temperatures of 73-93 degrees in all 12 months. Enjoy the 2-mile-long beach, and ocean temperatures that range from the mid-70s to mid-80s.

For more local culture, explore the friendly nearby city of Zihuatanejo, or some of the small local fishing villages. For the more adventuresome, there are 14 beaches in the area, and every watersport can be enjoyed. You can find great surfing, scuba diving, parasailing, and some of the world's best big game fishing!

For land-based relaxation, enjoy incredible golf courses and pleasant strolls down the immaculate boulevard. You will find Ixtapa friendly, accommodating, and able to cater to your every need.
