Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 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/85 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 Zihuatanejo Bay and finally in to the azure of the Pacific Ocean.

The magic of the fabulous views looking out over famous Playa La Ropa Beach, 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.

Zihuatanejo information:

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

Our stay at Casa Agave Blue was lovely. Beautiful view, especially night time too with all the town lights. Each large bedroom had a bathroom, fan, ac...a great spot that we would return to. Easy access to LaRopa and beach restaurants, a little steep for anyone with bad knees! and a slightly challenging walk to beautiful Las Gatas beach, with alternate access by boat from Centro. We would love to come back, Zihua is filled with charming people. Thank you Robin, Fredy and Tony!

Thanks again. I’m ready to go back now, hopefully the temp here will go up soon!

Cheers,

Kate

Incredible vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Zihua and enjoyed an absolutely perfect stay at Robin's condo. The location is ideal - gorgeous views of the water and just a short walk to the beach. The condo and location is very quiet at night and close enough to the water you can hear the ocean.

The condo had everything we needed. We cooked at home a couple nights and went to a number of local restaurants. Overall we felt very safe and comfortable.

We walked down to the beach everyday to dip in the ocean, but could have been equally happy staying on the terrace and taking in the views. Can't wait to plan our next trip!

Impressive

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in the most perfect location to enjoy the most fantastic vacation anyone could ask for. The living space is the perfect layout and size for all my family to visit. Kitchen is well equipped for having a relaxing evening at home . The view from the fabulous deck is a bonus and the cold tub on the deck with this fabulous view makes it even more special.

Robin, thank you for all your help and suggestions on where and what to do while on vacation in this lovely spot.

Position A

Absolutely perfect location. Steps from the beach. yet absolute tranquility in the condo. Listening to the waves from the comfort of the deck was a very nice bonus. The layout of this unit is fabulous, The bedrooms are all a generous size with ensuite bathrooms in each. There was not a comfort missing. Being able to enjoy meals in with such a fabulous view was a real treat. This is a great set up, starting with the condo itself and the support from Robin to ensure a truly relaxing getaway. There was not a worry in sight.

The beach is glorious and so close it easy to pop down for the day or just a quick swim. It does not take long to get comfortable with the area. In walking distance they are many options for restaurants, yoga and great paddle boarding. Thank you Robin, one of the best vacations I've had!!!

Loved the Location

  • 5 of 5

We and one other couple stayed a week. The deck is probably one of the best features of the Punta Marina condos and Robin's is one of the best, because of its relative seclusion, furnishings and dipping tub . We ate all of our breakfasts and most dinners there, played bridge, barbequed and looked at the views, including ever changing activity on La Ropa.

We have stayed in other locations in Zihuatenejo , including a new condo above the other end of La Ropa beach, and at hotels across the bay. This has the shortest walk to the beach and to public transportation to the town center. Even so, cab fares in Zihuatenejo are a bargain compared to other Mexican resort towns. During our stay here, we made frequent stops at our favorite bakery, Panaderia Antiqua, which is near the plaza by the bay and had lunch at the little Quesadilla restaurant which is located on the outside of the central market. Our favorite restaurant was El Agave, a small European type second story open air restaurant. Try their Mexican red blend wine.

We definitely hope to stay in Robin's condo when we return to Zihuatenajo.

un oasis de calme

  • 5 of 5

My first time with Homeaway. I was honestly nervous... We discovered a wonderfull mexican apartement , nicely decorated , spacious , a balcony with lots of flowers and room for a living-room, a dining space and a big spa.We practicly lived on the balcony since the hard sun arrived only in the late after noon. The view was amazing! There is a big pool where you could do laps!

All this near a superb beach , lots of restaurants , nice city-mercado-fish-market and activities. But for us the best was how calm this place was and how safe and friendly(respectfull) the people from Zihua are. Mr Hill really made everything easy for us!He did more than answer our questions!

Je recommande ,sans aucune retenue, ce petit paradis à quiconque veut se ressourcer , profiter du soleil et bien manger! Ça ne peut pas être plus facile!

Appartement chaleureux , propre , décoration locale , belles salles de bain , superbe vue d'un immense balcon comprenant salon-salle à diner-spa . M. Hill a été beaucoup plus qu'un propriétaire pour nous avec ses très bons conseils.

Merci encore ++ on y retournera certainement!!

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.
