You will truly enjoy your stay in our home at the Bay View Grand Marina!
Upon opening the door, you will be greeted by a continuous bank of floor-to-ceiling windows, differentiating this condo from any other. A huge pane of glass wraps the living room, and the incredible view continues into the bedroom with 4 large sliding glass doors. Neither words nor photos can begin to express how incredible this effect actually is. Caution: you may find yourself spending more time in the condo than you anticipated!
The condo has been substantially upgraded during and after construction to provide the utmost in luxury, enjoyment, and privacy for your stay.
We wanted the layout of this condo to evoke a feeling of spaciousness beyond its one-bedroom size. We removed walls in the kitchen and bathroom in order to provide the most open and airy atmosphere, and changed the shower enclosures to frameless glass. We had the furnishings custom made to provide maximum usability, while not obscuring views or pathways.
The open concept living area makes social occasions and meal preparation much more enjoyable. The gourmet kitchen features a custom 42" x 8' granite countertop and bar. While you can enjoy your meals here, you may often find yourselves dining in the open air on the patio.
On the 15th floor, the rumble of crashing waves creates the perfect ambiance for any occasion. The unit is only exposed to the beach and ocean, so noises of traffic and nightlife will not spoil your serenity. Fall asleep to the sound of breaking waves, and open your eyes to expansive vistas of the wide beach and seemingly endless ocean.
Enjoy the calm and privacy this condo offers. From its location in the North tower, it shares the floor with only two other units. For peace of mind, we replaced the hollow-core entry door with a reinforced door for safety and sound attenuation. We have endeavored in all ways to make this a tranquil home away from home both for you and for us.
The condo has air conditioning, but we have provided fans in the living room, the bedroom, and on the deck to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day and night. The living room and bedroom windows can all be shaded with high-end sun shade blinds. The bedroom also comes with a row of blackout blinds for those mornings when 6 a.m. is just too early to awake - view or not!
If beach-combing and sun-catching ever becomes too much, you can enjoy the 42" HDTV LED and DVD library. We have also provided board games, as well as a modest library for your entertainment.
We hope you will find all the comforts of home in our Ixtapa paradise, and we endeavour to support the communities in which we do business. In this respect, we are very excited to donate a portion of our rental income to charities in the local area. If you have a favourite, please let us know!

“Frickin Amazing View”
My fiance and I stayed at Carleton and Valina's condo in Ixtapa over Xmas this year. The view is stunning. We absolutely loved it. There are two bathroom in the 1 bedroom condo, so it was really a luxury to each have our own bathroom. We didn't cook but we could have if we wanted to because of the great kitchen. We most loved looking out the massive windows at the ocean, and sitting on the balcony. We didn't even go in the pool once because the ocean is right there and it was so much fun.
“Exceeded our expectations!”
My husband and I had a wonderful two week vacation here. The condo is exactly as pictured, the building is beautifully maintained and the staff are helpful and friendly. The food at the on-site restaurant is very good quality and very reasonably priced. We took advantage of the bicycles provided by the owners; a fun and safe way to tour around, due to the great bicycle path. Rode out for cappuccino in the mornings...fun!! The owners recommended a trip to Isla Ixtapa: a great suggestion. The swimming and snorkeling (and food) is great there. For fellow golfers the condo. is the perfect location; the course is approx. three minute walk from BVG and lots of work is going into it to shape it up for high season. Thanks C. and V. for renting us your place in Paradise!!
Everyone was helpful, especially Jaime the manager. The apartment is beautiful, the view is amazing, just like the photos! Location is great, close to the Marina and good restaurants. A short bus ride to Ixtapa Centro where you find the shops, restaurants, banks. Change money at the airport, some banks in town do not have that service. There is a safe in the bedroom. There is a business center, spa/gym as well, but I did not use them: Who goes to the gym when you can walk at the beach with the water splashing around? Will go back as soon as the piggy bank gets full!
Wow! The views from this condo are incredible, I call it the 'infinity views', just awesome I could not get enough of the view! The pictures on the site of the unit are exactly as reality, we had heard from several folks that what they got was not what they thought, with this place you get what you see! We had the best time at the complex, we were there for 4 weeks in January, we met so many great people too, a lot of prairie people enjoying the great weather! We highly recommend this unit, you won't be disappointed! If our friends weren't coming with us next year, the place would already be unavailable for January 2014! The infinity pool is so great too, wonderful spot on the beach, less crowded then further down by the hotels, easy 15 minute walk to Ixtapa restaurants, many buses come by too and for less than 10 pesos too.
“Beautiful, Clean, Relaxing, Quiet, perfect for couples get away”
If you are looking for a clean, relaxing, quiet get away then this is the place for you. Condo has private balcony, windows overlooking ocean view, ceiling fans, new, clean everything!
“Fantastic 1 bedroom condo”
We had a wonderful week at the bvg marina condo in June 2012. The condo is fully equipped. We had a few minor problems, however these things happen and the way the property managers rectify the situation is was amazing. Hot water pilot light went out and there was no hot water. This was fixed within an hour. That was great service!!! Ixtapa felt safe and the condo property had additional security at the entrance allowing only guests to enter property.
“Great balcony which you will spend a lot of time on.”
We spent five weeks relaxing and enjoying this unit. It was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to have a comfortable stay. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a definite plus. The owners, Carleton and Valina were very accomodating and any questions, they answered immediately. And did we mention the view - awesome! We put the balcony to good use spending a lot of time there.
“The most relaxing time ever!”
My husband and I stayed at the Bay Vie Grand Marina owned by Carelton & Valina Pope during March 14 thru March 29th 2012. Our 2 week stay in Condo 1501-C could not have been better. We had coffee every morning on our roomy deck, and even saw dolphins one morning. The Condo unit was so open and we would get a nice breeze thru the whole condo unit and we could hear the lap of the waves. Our king size bed was so comfy, we just felt right at home. We loved having the snack bar down by the pool area. We could get drinks and snscks for so reasonable, and our waiters, Patricio, Joel, and Fernando were just awesome! All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool area is so spacious and quiet. It did not matter what time during the day you went to the pool, there was always plenty of room. It sure beats staying at a motel that is crowded and the chair wars right away in the morning, crowds of people and noisy. We will never say at a motel again. We were walking distance from all of the good restaurants in Ixtapa, sometimes we would take the bus and that was fun too. We felt so safe all the time and the security guards were awesome. We are already booked this Condo for next year for 3 weeks and can't wait to go back. Carleton & Valina are awesome to deal with and just made everyting so easy. Thanks!
My husband and I stayed here over Christmas this year and truly enjoyed this condo. Over the past 25 years, we have stayed at most of the hotels/condos on the beach but this unit has the best view we have ever had. The condo was well furnished, the location on the beach perfect, the staff at BVG were friendly, and Carlton and his wife were very accomodating . We can't wait to make plans for next year!
“wonderfully bold and beautiful”
From the first Contact to the Owner until the stay we feel always assistance. For a European as us the Condo perfect equipped, together with the view from 15 floor was more as perfect. Everything around the Bay view was great the stuff friendly and cleaned very often. Relaxed on a fantastic pool, cold Drinks and 50 meter to the beach was nothing missed during our Time. I travel a lot, I saw many Places, around the World, but for sure this was the best Place I ever been. Thanks for all, see you next Time
