About MJ Oleson

We are a midwestern couple who have spent at least a couple of weeks each winter heading south to find refuge from the cold winters. Our first visit to Ixtapa was over 30 years ago. Since then we have traveled to the caribbean to Cancun/Mayan Riviera, Bahamas, and Belize; Costa Rica and even tried Puerta Vallarta. Then in 2004 we returned to Ixtapa and found the friendly people and truly warm weather that we had remembered from long ago. It seems that we had found the 'right place' on our first try and didn't know it. We think that Ixtapa really has what we are looking for: Truly warm weather in January and February (80's) and much less cloudy, breezy Cancun-like weather.

When we retire we will likely make Ixtapa our winter home for much of the winter.

MJ Oleson purchased this condo in 2010

What makes this condo unique

Bay View Grand-Marina is one of the newest condominium complexes in the Ixtapa area. It is located on the palm shaded Ixtapa Boulevard with good walking sidewalks to the marina and to Ixtapa Plaza. Getting around with the taxi and bus system is easy and inexpensive. The locals are very tolerant of my rudimentary Spanish and if approached politely are happy to try to help you through the language barrier (many speak some english.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

First of all, we were very pleased and happy with your rental unit. The view and everything in your condo was perfect. We really enjoyed the pools and having coffee on the deck in the mornings!! Your condo is very beautifully decorated and well supplied with all the needs of the stay. The internet was so nice to have also. Thank you again for providing us the opportunity to stay in your condo. At this time we would like to return to Ixtapa and Bay View Grand Marina next year. We really appreciated the stay in the condo and the vacation itself.

Wonderful stay at BVGM

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was wonderful at this property. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The pool is amazing. The condo was beautiful and spacious. We received a welcome bouquet of flowers and fruit from Mary which was very thoughtful. Mary is great and was very attentive to any of our inquiries. She responded to anything in a very timely manner. We would stay at this property again for sure.

Well maintained and extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 week stay at this condo was excellent , the kitchen was well stocked, as were the linens and towels. The morning breeze from the open window and balcony door was very enjoyable. We were entertained by marine life viewed from the balcony and even witnessed whales numerous days playing in the waters between the beach and the islands. Again from the balcony the sunset were wonderful. Overall we did not want for anything, the staff at the BVGM was very friendly and helpful. This Property is a very good choice! I would recommend this condo to my friends, and we hope to return. Thanks MJ for sharing your lovely home. Marie and Dale

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay. All necessary items were available including drinking water, coffee, laundry soap etc. Pack light! Owner was very responsive, condo was clean and comfortable. Many great restaurants in Ixtapa and Zihua. Prepaid card at pool area snack bar worked well. Not the best we have seen but certainly adequate. Owner sent beautiful fruit and flower arrangement and a welcome drink. Much appreciated. Beautiful beach for walks. Gorgeous sunsets from balcony. Wifi in condo and pool worked well. Friendly staff and vacationers. Overall it doesn't get much better.

We have been doing all inclusive properties all over Mexico for the past 12 years, the last 3 in Ixtapa! Loving Ixtapa as much as we do, we decided we wanted to go back again but were looking for a different experience. We got lucky with VRBO and found this fantastic property! The condo was incredibly clean, beautifully furnished, lovely linens/towels...EVERYTHING we could ask for and more! The owners couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating with all of my questions and inquiries! I would highly recommend this unit and this property! Great little restaurant right next to the pool and a wonderful staff that was always aiming to please! BEST place on the beach! Good security and property management ~ Thank you Victor! THANK YOU to the owners for a wonder experience ~ we'll be back! Love the BVGM!
