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.
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.
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!
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!
