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.

Our stay in this unit was incredible. The location is perfect, the unit is beautiful and the view on is to die for. Getting there and check-in was super easy. Add in the enjoyment of visiting with other owners in residence and other out-of-town visitors, one could not ask for a better, nicer place. Contact and attention from concierge, Dulce, was impeccable; she is a gem. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is set up beautifully and we loved the deck! We spent most of the time outside enjoying the fabulous view! Of course, with the view and with the condo being built into the side hill there come the steps... There are about 80 steps to climb from the condo down to the road level, and then it is a short but steep walk to the beach. Not ideal if you have knee or ankle issues or mobility issues in general.

Jack was great to deal with and prompt with his replies. We even had airport pick up and groceries ordered ahead of time and stocked in the fridge.

We had a great time!

We had a wonderful stay at Jack's condo. We had a beautiful flower arrangement waiting for us upon arrival and the condo was immaculate. The views are amazing from the living room and deck. The infinity pool is overlooking the bay and is well maintained. The condo is close to

the beach and loads of restaurants. We will definately be going back for another visit!

Casa Guapito is Fantastic !!

  • 5 of 5

This top notch, beautifully appointed condo is really special. The only condo in the Casa Que Ve Al Mar complex with fully private deck furnished with lovely chaise sun loungers, a small dinette set and large umbrella surrounded by lovely flowers and a magnificent view over the pools to the bay and ocean !! What a way to start the day relaxing on this deck. The condo itself is beautiful, well furnished with comfortable and tasteful furniture, comfy bed, plenty of closet space, large bathroom, washer dryer etc. The kitchen is well fitted out if you choose to cook but with so many wonderful, reasonably priced restaurants nearby we ate out almost every night. An easy couple minute walk down the hill took us to the wonderful Playa La Ropa beach with lovely sand and many eating choices. The condo is spotlessly clean and the maid and concierge go out of their way to help in any way. The owner is great with communications and even provides Free-- private, High Speed wireless internet service in the condo. The town of Zihua itself is friendly , safe and authentic. Can't wait to come back to Casa Guapito and Zihuatanejo.

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.

The absolute best location in Zihuatanejo. The condo is beautifully positioned just above the La Ropa Beach, an easy walk to many restaurants and to town as well !! Quiet, yet close to everything.
