About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Not too high, not too low, this place is the perfect spot! This 2 bedroom 2 bath third floor condo has great views of the pools and ocean. It is fully appointed with everything you will need to enjoy your stay in paradise. At nearly 1600 sq ft, there is plenty of space for you and your guests to enjoy their time. The balcony has a table for 4 and a Jacuzzi with ocean views. The master suite has a king bed, sliding glass doors, a huge walk-in closet and full bathroom. The second bedroom features a double bed and a fold-out daybed, and full bathroom with views to the mountains. Our kitchen has all major appliances, plus a coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven and microwave.

Bay View Grand has it all! Relax and swim your day away at the infinity pools, meet your neighbors at the snack bars, pamper yourself with a massage in the spa or work out in the full gym and play a match of tennis

Building tips: On the sand tennis court at night, just ask for the night lighting at the front desk. The beach features private palapas for shade and a wait staff can bring you snacks and drinks. During peak weeks(Christmas/New Year/Easter) there MAY be a sign up sheet on a wall near the elevators for the next days use of beach palapas and pool furniture. Sign up generally starts at 1 p.m.

Make sure to bring the beige beach towels in the condo with the embroidered 'BVG 305-S' to the pool area so that security knows your party is staying at the building and does not ask you to leave the property.

Maid service available upon request. Drinking water is available downstairs or at the gate house, just exchange an empty container in the condo and a new one will be delivered up for 20 pesos.

Spanish words around the complex:

PB - lobby level on elevators

Basura - Trash

Alberca - Swimming pool

Money - Pesos - Rates: If you want to exchange for pesos, an easy way is at the ATM, or go to any casa de cambio, the nearest is INTERCAM, located in Ixtapa across from Bancomer, just past Ruben's Hamburgers.

New national law prevents bank tellers from exchanging US Dollars at the teller window.

Beware of paying with USD on the street or in small establishments, they may try to give you a 10:1 exchange rate, usually the actual rate is higher than that, and they are making an extra 20% on your Dollars!!

Condo details: Please do not anything but small amounts of soft food down the garbage disposal. The disposals in Mexico are not nearly as strong as those in the US or Canada. There is a drain in front of the sink on the floor that is for excess water, however if too much is put down the disposal, dark water will seep up for a moment. We advise that guests do not use the disposal at all.

The garbage can be easily disposed of by exiting the condo and going through the white slatted door behind the elevators, you will see the small metal door to drop the bag of trash down to the dumpster below.

The condo is cleaned before and after your stay by our maid, these cleanings are included in the agreed rate. If you prefer to have additional cleanings, please let the owner know to arrange for them at an additional cost.

Why Kevin Pham chose Guerrero

I chose to buy in Ixtapa because it is so relaxing to come here. The people are friendly, the area is not overbuilt, but has all of the conveniences you need on vacation. I love hearing the ocean as I fall to sleep at night and walking along the shore at any time of day.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Kevin's condo in Ixtapa. We have been going to Ixtapa for 11 years and staying in this condo was the best. Kevin was excellent to deal with. His condo gives a whole new meaning to 5 star accommodations. I have never seen a rental unit so well equipped. The kitchen had the best of everything.i would recommend this unit to anyone. It was so good we booked it for next year the day we got back. Thanks again Kevin for the trip of a lifetime.

I was several times in the Bay View Grand Ixtapa and I strong recommend this apartment, well eqquipped, very clean and with all the appliances working excellent. The buiding is very nice, secure and friendly. The swimming pool area is excellent and there is a restaurant area with reasonable prices. The location is an advantage because it is situated in walking distance to restaurants, food stores and shopping area.

Bay View Grand 305s

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Ixtapa many times. We really love everything about it. Recently we started renting a condo at the BVG. This last trip the condo we normally rent was booked, so we rented from Kevin. We loved everything about this condo. The floor plan is set up so the master bedroom is looking right out over the ocean. All the furniture, TV's and decor was very impressive. Private Wi Fi and cable was really nice plus too. We loved how the condo was just high enough to be out of sight of the pool and above the trees, but not so tall it felt like you were in a high rise. Kevin was very easy to work with and always returned emails and calls quickly. When we come back to Ixtapa this will be our first choice to stay.

Thanks Kevin!

New Years stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the first week in January and had a wonderful time. The condo had everything we needed and the view was incredible.! Kevin was quick to respond to any of our questions and was prompt in refunding the cleaning fee.

We ate breakfast on the patio and all other meals out. The most memorable meal was in Zhia at a place called El Mediteranio (spelling may be off). Fish and coconut shrimp were delicious, they have a pasta as well which looked good, music and open patio in the back that was lovely. Price was very resonable and would highly suggest going there for a meal. Some of the regulars at the complex go 2-3x a week.

The location of the condo was great, with everything we needed within walking distance. We also took a sunset sail which was nice and worth the money($49.00).

Had 2 massages ($20.00)with Juanita at the complex and would highly recommend her.

Our only concern is that the hotel next to the complex has a nightly show that can get quite loud. It ends by 10 PM.

Grab this condo for a trip. I know we will next time we head south.

Pure Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we had the best time EVER on this vacation, makes you want to live there! Kevin was so pleasant to help make our arrangements and answer our questions. The consierge Marcos was so nice and helpful whenever we needed anything. The property is imaculate and very comfortable. The bonus was having the jacuzzi on the patio where we spent time after fishing to relax and watch the sunset. I was excited to find that the restaraunt at the pool had anything from Hamburgers to Seafood, on days when we just chilled out at the pool. The condo itself was more than I expected...loved the artwork/decor and the beds were very comfortable. In a nutshell PERFECTO PARADISE...we WILL be back when we can escape our busy lives again!

Gracias muy bueno,

Jack & Cheryl

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week there (2nd time staying at BVG). Check in was quick & easy as owners had pre-arranged everything. Had a problem with Air Conditioning - quickly attended to x maintenance. Staff at BVG are awesome. Listing was accurate, condo unit in good condition, clean, well maintained. Good communication with owner. Recommend "Deborah's Chili Beans", "Blue Shrimp" & the poolside bar at BVG.
