The property manager is priceless, she grew up nearby and can help with anything. The location of this property is a real asset. Nearby are restaurants and shopping, all locally owned. Area residents are very friendly, we felt safe. A short walk away are the fishing boats and a wonderful open air market. All views are of the picturesque bay and the beach has a nice boardwalk which also accesses many restaurants. Very fun, always something to do when reading a book and watching the bay is not enough.
I was in the lower bedroom/bathroom and it stunk like raw sewage almost constantly. I almost wanted to vomit when I had to use the bathroom. The raw sewage smell was so bad I could smell it in my bedroom with the door closed. Livvi and Zach, the two people I was traveling with, asked me to keep my bathroom door closed so the smell didn’t drift upstairs.
There was nothing in the listing that stated that the place would smell like raw sewage. And it was a known problem as was told to me by Carmen. It was known by the owner of the VRBO and the mayor of Zihuatanejo, again as told to me by Carmen. Carmen also said there was nothing they could do about the raw sewage smell. YET THEY RENTED IT OUT ANYWAY – I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!! Please refund my money. Dennis
The Up n Up
The condo is everything it was supposed to be. Wonderful and the views were spectacular. The only improvement I could recommend is in the description. Not only is it on top of a very steep hill, there are three flights of stairs to climb once you get there. We are an older couple and in reasonably good shape and found it difficult to go to the beach or to town on some days dreading the return to the condo.
My wife, adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Zihuatanejo in this unit for 2 weeks in December.The location was very central which allowed us to walk downhill easily to the nearby restaurants, plaza, market, Mega, Playa La Ropa and marina. On the return however there was a set of approximately 75 steps up from the beach or a steep road up from Calle Adelita ,then another 3 stories up to the unit. The AC in the spacious main bedroom was very refreshing and needed. The bed was very comfortable although the raised platform around the bed was annoying... The main bathroom was adequate with plenty of cupboard space and a safe. The second bedroom didn’t have the AC, just 2 fans so it wasn’t as comfortable but it still had a panoramic view with a comfortable bed and small bathroom. There was a fantastic view from the main deck but there was only enough room for 1 lounger and 2 chairs. We used the beach chairs in the closet as ottomans. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for blender drinks, sandwiches and coffee. There was only a hotplate for a stove but the kitchen was far too hot to cook a supper anyways.
The pool area was very relaxing with loungers. We had the pool to ourselves almost every day.
Carmen, the manager, was great and responded quickly to any concerns or questions we had. Enrique, the guard and Juan, maintenance man literally jumped to always help us.
Communication with the owners was very poor as most of my emails before our arrival were not answered. I didn’t even receive the complete name and address from the owner. The proper name is Bahia Suites, which the taxi drivers recognized not the address supplied by the owner.
Overall I would recommend this unit for a small family of 3 only (no small children) and not 2 couples
We fell in love. They were not kidding when they mention a “million dollar view”. We felt like we hit the jackpot. Carmen the on/off site manager is wonderful and so helpful. Seriously ask her questions. Best beach, best food, best shopping, etc. she will send you in the right direction. Every neighbor we met ( daily in the swimming pool ) were so friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the community and it’s residents. We had made friends on a name bases within days. We felt at home. The beach (playa la Madera) is literally steps away. The locals dive for oysters daily and your welcome to purchase a plateful with fresh lime and hot sauce. You can’t get any fresher then that. The condo is decorated in authentic Mexican decor, local art, and a great selection of books to read or thumb through . The bed is DREAMY! Book it, you won’t be sorry. The Merritt’s.
Location, Location, Location! Spacious, Rustic Mexican feel, Clean with essential amenities.
This was our second trip to Zihua, so we knew we loved the area already. This was our first VRBO booking, and we had fingers crossed that the unit matched the pictures. Thankfully it did. Actually, it’s better than the pictures because you cannot fully grasp the amazing view from pics, and the pool is really clean and refreshing. The size is ideal for a family of 4, and kudos for getting AC upstairs, if downstairs, would be ideal - can’t imagine when even hotter - but with two fans made it work. We rotated who got to sleep in the AC room. The balcony was our morning spot to have coffee (provided by owners) watch the sky change from sunrise and catch up on social media, while kids slept. We only used coffee pot and fridge to keep drinks cool and our major fish catch until we had it cooked in Playa Ropa. My husband caught a Dorado (off season) and friend caught a Sailfish - (ask for Don Guillermo). We walked to El Centro (town) everyday (2 teens rarely complained) so you know it was close - 10 minutes. Teens happy had WiFi and Netflix in unit. The building has 24 hour security which we appreciated, and felt ok discretely leaving kids sleeping and going for morning walks to town, Playa Ropa, and breakfast. The price for the breathtaking view is a steep hill referred to as ‘heart attack’ hill and 77 stairs to the beach below. Again, teens embraced the adventure, but would be challenging for anyone with mobility issues. As a reward, at the bottom of those steps is a massage hut where you can get an hour massage for $200 pesos! (Ask for ‘Wendy’) Taxis often go by the Bahia Suites but are easy to get at the bottom of heart attack hill. Several great restaurants on the street below the hill, recommend El Vado. As noted by other reviews, Carmen, the manager, is outstanding. We brought a couple of things to her attention, and she followed up. Suggest, closing windows and balcony doors before dusk, and leaving lights off if not inside, then no mosquitos, we did not do the first night bc were told no mosquitos so high up - and some got a lot of bites which was unfortunate. Do spray when out in evening to avoid bites. Would definitely stay here again, with a few notes for owners. As I type this on couch back home, I close my eyes and see the view from the balcony and hear the crashing waves below.
