The space

This is My ACAPULCO Micro Beach Pad. I encourage you take the time and read ALL the details to this condo -- so you can make the BEST decision for yourself, and decide if this is the right place for you.

Also, please be mindful that the U.S. has issued a travel warning to and from Acapulco: it is real and it affects all our neighborhoods.

Also, please do not book this place if you are expecting a 5 star hotel experience. We have a great condo and we love what we offer, but book a 5 STAR Hotel... for a 5 STAR experience.

The reviews speak about our 5 year relationship with hundreds of our visitors... and more than 98% positive reviews have been made. We finally have TV/Cable and Wifi! But, you come to the beach to enjoy the beach... so enjoy it.

I bought this little condo while I was studying my graduate degree in Mexico City. I loved it because I'm a traveler. And, as a tourist to Mexico I get to really experience how "real" native Acapulco people live and it gets me out of my bubbled world of high society and comfort zones.

I use it on some weekends to go out and surf. It's decorated with my own California beach style. My maid lives right there at the complex and she takes care of this condo for me.

The micro condo is the tiniest little beach condo; it's "cute" for lack of a better word. I provide my guests with genuine hospitality and personal service. It is not a luxury hotel with grand rooms and formal service. It's cheap and affordable so you can spend your money doing other things. You will find this condo to be a tasteful little styled beach house, beautiful surroundings, and also a local taste of the "real" ACAPULCO while you're driving to the community. That means you'll pass a few bumpy dirt roads... off the beaten path.. and maybe see a cow or two...and see people on bikes or selling their juices on the street.

This is an "economically priced" condo in a decent middle class gated community in Mexico. Natives from Acapulco live in the community -- though most are weekend people. This is a "local" community feel and not urban upscale hotel life. This condo is not for the fancy at heart. If you don't mind interacting with the native Acapulco community, who are super friendly, then this condo provides that experience.

DISTANCE FROM BEACH:
Please note, the map on Airbnb did NOT allow me to pinpoint the exact location of the condo as it is situated in a NEW development, so its give or take 10 minutes from the Punta Diamante Beach area.

LOCATION:
This condo is located in the new development area known as Punta Diamante or Llano Largo and it is not near the Costera where all the bars and nightclub life rests. However, you can take a collectivo/otherwise known as "taxi cabs" to the Main Costera but it is a good 30 minutes away from where the condo is situated. I usually recommend a car if you rent the condo or get ready to walk 5 minutes to the grand entrance of the community to take "collectivos/taxi cabs" to get around.

To make your stay more enjoyable, I'm available to assist you, but I won't be there in person nagging you :)

When you stay here I want you to feel at home and enjoy the real Mexican neighborhood. Although my condo is situated within a gated community, I love that when you leave the community, you get the feel of the real local town here --- like fruit and juice stands at the corner, carpenters making their craft, etc. The community has a small park, too.

You can take a cab right outside the gates for $12 pesos or like a dollars worth.

In 5 minutes by taxi or car you're near the Walmart, Starbucks, Cinema, restaurants, beaches, Fairmont Hotel, and convenient transportation to all parts of the city.

Just as described, has everything you need except for a freezer, did see ice cube trays but it wasn’t a big deal, we only needed because family brought us paletas LOL. We stayed for 2 weeks and this was a much better option for us than a hotel since we were mainly there to visit family. We felt like home and love the fact that the pool is close by for my 4 year old to enjoy. Had only minor issues that were resolved quickly by Jess. I felt safe in the complex, they keep it clean and the not much noise outside. We will reserve again if we get the chance to go back.

Nice cozy little place, fully functional and well decorated, worth the buck just MAKE SURE you get all the checking inn info before heading to the place, we had to wait outside the building complex 20 minutes (with two infants and 95 degrees at the shade it was not enjoyable at all) because neither the host or airbnb provided the condo number, apartment and all necessary info to grant us access, other than that it's a nice place, internet really slow but minor details when you stay outdoors most of the time.

This is the perfect Acapulco place! Loved the beach house vibe and having the pool a couple steps away. The fully stocked kitchen was a nice surprise especially being able to make coffee. We didn't have a car and while the place is not walking distance to the beach the extensive taxi system makes it super easy to get around. Taxi drivers are super friendly and gave us great trips on the best beach spot! Jess is an awesome host! Thanks for everything

Jess was very welcoming and made the check-in process smooth sailing. I loved the furniture and beach theme decor! I enjoyed the games and books he had available. The place is not close enough to beach to walk to - must take a taxi to get there. He had a few housekeeping items to address but those have been addressed with Jess. Thank you so much for your sharing your home with us!

The beach pad was great. Clean, well-furnished, in a safe gated community. About a 10 minute car ride to the beach. Jess was very helpful with check-in.

Jess is a great host, he was easy to communicate with and even called me when I got nervous about driving from Mexico City to Acapulco after reading American travel warnings about the area. Check-in instructions and apartment manual are clear. The apartment is spotless and as described. Plenty of pools to choose from when you don't feel like heading to the beach.

We had a lovely stay in Acapulco-- the place is quiet, cozy, well-equipped with the basics. The pool nearby was an added bonus. Jess was super helpful and friendly. Definitely a great pad!
