Overview

Playa La Ropa Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Sitting on the hill with incredible ocean views and overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay and one of the world's most beautiful beaches is Preciosa On The Bay Condominiums. This exclusive complex has only 10 units and is only minutes from the sand on the beach. Swim in our infinity pool or catch some rays on the sundeck.

We invite you to experience the magic of Zihuatanejo as you relax in our fully air conditioned 2100 square feet condo and enjoy the breathtaking views from every room. The large 500 square feet terrace has a Mexican hammock, dining area, sitting area, lounge chairs and some of the best views in Playa La Ropa. This is the perfect setting to enjoy fabulous sunsets and night lights around Zihuatanejo Bay. Preparing meals is easy in our fully eqipped gourmet kitchen.

The Master Bedroom suite has a king bed, walk-in closet, safe and private bath. The second bedroom has one full size double bed and one twin bed, generous closets and an attached bath.

Wireless Internet is available throughout the apartment. A separate laundry room with washer and dryer is found off the kitchen. Ceiling fans as well as air-conditioners are located in the rooms. Maid service is provided mid-week along with 24-hour security. Unlimited bottled water is also provided. Carefully selected furnishings and artwork complete the perfect Mexican atmosphere. We want you to be comfortable and feel at home during your stay.

Steps from the door is a beautiful infinity pool with breathtaking views of the bay. An easy five-minute walk down the hill will take you directly to Playa La Ropa, Zihuatanejo's favorite resort beach. Playa La Ropa is a mile of beautiful white sand and gentle surf where you can walk, swim, parasail, jet ski, or kayak in the bay. Massages can be arranged either in the condo or on the beach.

Downtown Zihatanejo (El Centro) is only 1 -2 miles away, a 15-20-minute walk or a 5- minute taxi or bus ride.

Zihuatanejo is a charming, authentic Mexican town where the centuries long tradition of fishing continues today. There you will find local markets, banks, shopping and many great restaurants offering typical Mexican fare or upscale gourmet dining. There are many shops selling traditional Mexican crafts, silver jewelry, tequila, and local sea salt. Ixtapa, five miles away, offers world-class golf, nightclubs and international hotels. There are numerous unique, beautiful beaches all within a 20 minute taxi ride for those that want to venture off the beaten path.

We invite you to vacation in our luxurious condo at Playa La Ropa and enjoy paradise in Zihuatanejo. Your time here can be either active or relaxing, but promises to be memorable. Life is best enjoyed on the beach in Zihuatanejo.

About Marcia Carpenter

I have always loved the beach and warm weather. I am a beach bum at heart.

Marcia Carpenter purchased this condo in 2008

Why Marcia Carpenter chose Zihuatanejo

Zihuatanejo is a place where we can slow down and relax. There are beautiful beaches, friendly people, great restaurants in all price ranges and it is easy to get to the beaches and the town center. We enjoy the true Mexican experience of Zihuatanejo and Playa la Ropa.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful week in this condo! We brought our 2 boys 18 and 22 and one of their friends. From the moment we walked in we were in heaven. Marcia was awesome about answering our questions and we felt very secure in our arrival. This was our first visit and the staff were great! The layout is excellent though we spent most of our time on the HUGE terrace. The proximity to the pool and sun deck are excellent, we usually had the pool to ourselves though we enjoyed chatting with other guests. Naty cooked an amazing meal for us, I highly recommend a meal prepared by her. We walked everywhere from the condo since 5 don't fit well in a cab and the boys were always up for a challenge. Yes it is a climb but the views make it completely worth it. The condo is the best stocked condo we have ever visited! There was absolutely nothing we needed that wasn't there! Thank you for a wonderful week!

Everything is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a whole week, and we enjoyed every second there. The condo is so clean, and everything is so beautiful. The bedroom is lovely, the kitchen is modern, and the terrace is literally like a corner of paradise. Sometimes we just sat on the terrace, enjoying the gorgeous view and the breeze while doing nothing. The pool is right outside the house, and the beach is just minutes of walking away. It's easy access to everything: the downtown, the market, the pier... It was a wonderful experience, and we cannot say thanks to the condo owners enough.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Zihuatanejo. In our previous stays we had always thought how nice it would be to have accommodation on the hill over looking La Ropa. Now we know...the views from this condo and its pool are breath taking! The breezes coming off the water made air conditioning unnecessary. The condo itself is spacious with a very large deck which made it the prefect setting for a family vacation. I appreciated the prompt and pleasant communication from the owner. Definitely a place that we would come back to and recommend to others!

Incredible Views and Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views from a beautiful property located high on the hill above the bay. The condo is gorgeous, immaculate and beautifully equipped . We celebrated our birthdays with a a most delicious dinner on our terrace that was prepared by Natty, she even brought a cake for us.

The little bus and taxis make it easy to get up and down the hill and are very reasonable. Be sure and take a water taxi to Playa Las Gatas and spend the day at Otilla's. We also liked playa La Madera and the restaurant Maria Bonita, ask for Changa… Such a fun host and my sons say he makes BEST Margaritas anywhere.

We would highly recommend this awesome property....hope to return😀

The Real Thing

  • 5 of 5

It just doesn't get any better. The view even in these photos doesn't convey how gorgeous this place truly is. What a great condo. Nicely furnished and immaculate, we even enjoyed an authentic meal cooked by our housekeeper! Being internet geeks, the only glitch was a miscommunication on providing the wifi password which we soon righted by finding the correct code on the back of the router. A nice bonus was the friendly office manager who answered any number of questions and gave recommendations- a huge plus for this property. We would highly recommend staying here and can't wait to return to the kindness of Zihuat and this condo.

Thanks again. it was well worth the wait:)

The real thing

  • 5 of 5

When you look at these photos, you can't really imagine how fantastic this condo is. We were anticipating a good visit but what we experienced far surpassed our expectations. Everything was immaculate and nicely furnished. The view was beyond anything I could imagine and the housekeeper even cooked us a special meal! What stands out was the fact that there was a professional staff and office manager who was able to answer questions and resolve the one problem we had which was being given an incorrect wifi address. Being internet junkies we were slightly frustrated not to have a connection but realized later that the code was listed on the back of the condo port. All in all, we can't wait to return to Zihuat and this gem of a location. Well worth the wait:)
