Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Casa Guapito is a most unique condo, designed for relaxation. Perched high above the 2 infinity pools, our private wood deck is an oasis of peacefulness. From your deck and living room you can watch the activity in the beautiful Zihuatanejo bay, the comings and goings of the cruise ships stopping in the bay and the endless expanse of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The condo, located in the beautiful La Casa Que Ve Al Mar complex is the perfect location for a special vacation in Mexico. Take a 3-5 minute walk down to the beach and join in the activities, have a great meal or drinks in the many restaurants surrounding you, spend the late afternoon around our beautiful infinity pools and watch romantic sunsets from our private deck.

Morning walks to town (about 20 minutes or so) along the scenic La Ropa road (or 5 minutes by taxi) are a great way to start the day and an excursion of our friendly and warm town and it's people. Go down to the pier and catch a small boat to Playa Las Gatas, about 15 minutes away for a great day of snorkeling and enjoying fresh grilled fish from the ocean, grab a 10 minute cab to Ixtapa for golf our discos and at the end of any day, you have your wonderful, relaxing, condo, Casa Guapito to retire to. Peaceful Bliss. It just does not get any better than this.

About Jack Bittner

We found Zihua about 20 years ago, staying in hotels for most of that time. We fell in love with Zihua and were fortunate to find this most beautiful condo in the best of all condo complexes in Zihua, La Casa Que Ve Al Mar. Now that we own 2 condos there, (see our VRBO listing #275681 for our 2 bedroom), we can spend all the time we can get away in the most wonderful and relaxing environment we have cherished for all these years.

Jack Bittner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jack Bittner chose Playa La Ropa

Zihuatanejo (Zihua) is a real live Mexican town, not sterilized into perfection, but ever so attractive to us because of our wonderful Mexican neighbors and friends, who always make us feel welcome and wanted. The hardest part of going to Zihua is getting on the plane to go home.

What makes this condo unique

The peace and quiet of Casa Guapito along with the Million Dollar Views from our outside deck make for an extremely relaxing vacation away from it all. Getting out of bed each morning to a wonderful clear day watching the endless sea and activity below in the bay is equally as charming as the romantic and breathtaking Sunsets we enjoy from our deck.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Jack's condo. The condo is clean, spacious with beautiful furnishings and well -equipped with pretty much anything you need. Our concierge, Dulce, was super helpful and very friendly. The view from the condo out to the ocean is just fantastic. We spent a lot of time in the pool and at the beach. We would often go into town to go shopping or to have dinner. I would highly recommend this condo for your vacationing needs.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Casa Guapito in late October. The condo itself is very well appointed. It has pretty much all the amenities one could ask for and everything was excellent. The photos really do not do the condo, the view, or the property justice. Everything from the neatly landscaped grounds to the sparkling infinity pools were perfect. The staff, including the maid, concierge, security guards and groundskeepers were all very friendly and accommodating. Most days there were very few people around and we had both pools to ourselves.

The La Ropa neighborhood is in a very nice part of town. There are many restaurants within walking distance, we were a little disappointed to learn that only a couple were open for dinner due to it being the shoulder season. There are also a ton of great places to eat and things to see in el centro, Paseo Del Pescador and La Madera neighborhood. We were never brave enough to make the trek to any of these places in the hot sun but they were all a quick, easy 50 peso cab ride away. The condo is only a 5 or so minute walk to Playa La Ropa, but it can definitely be a pretty grueling walk in the heat.

Overall, we had an excellent stay at Casa Guapito and Jack was excellent at communicating with us when we needed it. This was our first VRBO experience and I would not hesitate to use it again. We will definitely be staying at Casa Guapito in the future as well.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is wonderful, extremely comfortable. Kitchen well stocked if you want to cook. The bed is very comfortable. The decor is very pleasing and relaxing. Really can't say anything about the view. The pictures that you see in the description can not do justice. It's something that you have to experience. Proximity to La Ropa is five minutes. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had the very best time while we there.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have a high standard and Jack's place did not disappoint. Fantastic Views, close enough to hear the waves crash and walk to the beach, bars, restaurants. But equally important, the furnishings, bedding, decor were all very nice and well maintained. The view from the pool is fantastic and the property grounds are lush and well groomed. Highly recommend! Jack was quick to respond to any questions and easy to reach.

Another Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another great week in Zihuatanejo! We stayed at Casa Guapito last year and enjoyed it so much that we booked the same unit for the second year in a row. It is well appointed, in a great building (2 infinity pools), walkable part of town, private outdoor space, and with spectacular views. We can't wait to return next year!

Couldn't Have Stayed Anywhere Better

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing condo at Casa Que Ve al Mar for a week.

We always stay in Ixtapa, but had always been curious about staying in Zihua, and we definitely didn't regret our decision with Casa Guapito!

Everything about the condo is 5-star, and we just loved the art & architecture everywhere. From the floors to the furniture, the kitchen and bathroom, a lot of thought and care were put into the design of this space.

We looked at some other condos in the building while we were there, and they didn't even come close to what Jack has done with his place.

We called the terrace 'The Office,' and it was a pretty great place to wake up with a coffee and take care of the day's business before getting to fun in the sun!

On a side note, I have to give the building huge credit for their salt water pools too...what a fantastic alternative to chlorination.

We have our own Homeaway-listed condos on Palmar beach in Ixtapa, and I'm just glad that Jack isn't our neighbour there. Casa Guapito would be pretty tough competition! :)
