Playa Las Gatas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Perched on a verdant slope overlooking Playa la Ropa, our lovely Zihuatanejo vacation rental offers a quiet retreat in the heart of the Mexican Riviera. We have everything you could possibly want, including 300 square meters of luxury space, two private decks, and a resort-style pool you’ll practically have to yourself. All that’s missing is you!

This spacious and quiet condo accommodates six guests with room to spare, and its amenities rival that of an upscale hotel.

The peaceful master bedroom suite has a king-size bed and a large deck where you can sunbathe while taking in the view of Zihuatanejo Bay. The ocean breezes from both terraces are divine!

The second bedroom, also with a king-size bed, provides sweeping views of the surrounding mountains. The third bedroom features a full-size bed and a twin-size bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, ceiling fan, and A/C.

Whether you prepare your own meals or take advantage of our traditional chef services, you’ll find everything you need in our fully-equipped kitchen. Gather in the indoor dining area for an informal lunch, or dine alfresco on the deck as you drink in the view of the Pacific Ocean. Afterwards, sunbathe by the resort-style pool as you sip your salt-rimmed margarita and enjoy the light ocean breeze.

When you’re ready for a change of scenery, it’s a short, four-minute walk to Playa la Ropa, where you can swim, boat, snorkel, and dive. Las Gatas, a secluded beach you can only reach by boat or by foot, is a ten minute walk from the rental. There are numerous eateries within walking distance as well, including many hole-in-the-wall favorites and high-end restaurants with well-known chefs. You can also drive five minutes to Ixtapa, a small town with two world-class golf courses, a traditional handicraft market, and a variety of restaurants and nightclubs.

This gorgeous, luxury condo is one of 14 in the development, but it offers complete privacy, relaxation, and comfort, whether you’re a large family or a couple on a romantic getaway.

Stunning view, spacious and prompt owner!

  • 4 of 5

Not only is the view really THIS stunning, the whole layout is so nice and spacious! With kids of all ages and a hot day in the sun we all like to resort back to our own space for a little while and this place made it perfect. It was always cleaned well and a dinner by Silvia was AMAZING! We had a few hiccups along the way from bumping into people checking out, running out of grilling supplies, water running out and a late night, (10 pm) realization that we had NO TP. I emailed the owner at 10pm that night just to remind the housekeeper to bring some the next day. No kidding, not even 10 minutes later a knock at the door, the guard brings us toilet paper and paper towels!!! Blown away, the owner is amazing to deal with. He dealt with every issue right away and it was corrected. Hard to find good people like this!

You are also just up the hill from two really nice beaches. No lie, going down to the beaches were fine but after a day in the hot sun and just wanting to get back to a shower the hike up that vertical hill and steps were killer. The last week of my stay, I just skipped the hike and paid the 40 pesos for the taxi driver to bring me up the hill. No shame in my game. I'm here to relax not kill myself with a hike. lol...but the view is worth it, trust me.

So all in all, yes definitely rent this villa. It's worth every penny. Great stay, thanks again!!

Wonderful vacation at Punta Marina

  • 5 of 5

My group of four recently returned after two weeks at Oscar's condo overlooking beautiful La Ropa beach. All through the process from initial inquiries to follow up after our return, Oscar was extremely helpful and always responded more quickly than expected. During the two week stay, Silvia came twice to clean the condo, change the beds and wash the bath towels.

The condo has a magnificent view from both large balconies overlooking the bay. The property is spacious with all three bedrooms having ensuite baths. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need except an oven and dishwasher. There is a washing machine but no dryer in the suite, but since we had sun daily until the last night when it rained, everything dries quickly on the balcony.

The property has a very nice pool and waterfall and the grounds are well maintained. There were never more than 6 or so people at the pool and frequently nobody at all. It is very quiet in the evening and you can sit on the balcony and listen to the cicadas chirping at night, with only the occasional band playing off in the distance at one of the local bars. Even then, by about 9 or 10 at night they stopped playing.

We were a five minute walk down the hill to La Ropa beach, which is beautiful. It was nice coming down to the beach and finding lots of the local people down there, rather than a beach with only tourists. We enjoyed the seafood platters and margaritas at Restaurant Rossy (they have an expat 'band' playing Thur-Sat on the roof deck) and spent one lunch at La Perla although thought the food was better at other places. If you want more authentic food, find Mary's towards the other end of the beach. You can sit on the sand, or go back to the restaurant tucked in behind. I thought her shrimp tacos were the best.

We spent quite a bit of time in town and got there by walking down the hill from the condo to the road by the beach. You will either find a taxi or the bus that goes right into the centre of Zihua to the mercado. You can buy lots of fresh produce and seafood/meats there. From there it is only a three block walk to the mercado artisano along the waterfront. There are lots of vendors in stalls and many artisan shops along the way and many restaurants along the waterfront. We had a couple of meals at La Sirena Gorda and Bandidos and enjoyed them.

Overall a fabulous vacation for our group and we would not hesitate to recommend Oscar's condo and Zihuatanejo to others.
