About Mateo Ocejo

Welcome to Ixtapa - We hope we can soon welcome you as our guest at 801 - Tower B Amara. We take great pride in our unit and only rent it out selectively, with the majority of the year being used by our ownership group and by a small group of repeat rentals who we can now call friends. My name is Mateo, and I will be your primary point of contact while you inquire about the property and plan your vacation to the beautiful beaches of Ixtapa. I live in Vancouver Canada and can usually be reached by cell phone, however we also provide full time on-site support with a local administrator, who can help with any issues that may arise during your stay. We will work hard to ensure that your trip is problem free and full of wonderful memories. It is our hope that you will have a special trip to our vacation home and return to us again in future years for your holiday escape.

Mateo Ocejo purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mateo Ocejo chose Ixtapa

Our unit is directly in the center of the Amara complex and we feel this provides us with the best view on the beach. Combined with our unit's full length balcony that provides our guests with unrivaled privacy for sunbathing and plenty of space for breakfast overlooking the crashing waves, unit 801 is a hard choice to beat. We regularly invest into the unit with new paintings, furniture, appliances and upgrades and recently remodeled the kitchen installing beautiful hand made parrot wood cabinetry. We are confident that you will feel like an owner when staying with us, and will see that our unit is maintained by our ownership group differently than most rentals on the market. We encourage you to give us a try and guarantee that you won't be disappointed!

What makes this condo unique

We have fully renovated the interior of the unit including a new, locally hand made wood cabinet kitchen, newly painted walls and upgrades to windows for insulation and noise control (rear bedrooms). The doors which face the ocean have had safety pistons installed below the floor to ensure that no hands are caught in slamming doors. The appliances are well maintained and have been replaced as needed including an upgraded washing machine and water bottle tower. Our cleaning staff will visit the unit 3 times a week to ensure your unit stays clean and any support you require is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners provided us with a local (pay as you go) cell phone that made our stay easy. When we ran into problems we called the Administrator who lives in Ixtapa and she looked after things immediately.

The Amara

  • 5 of 5

This is our 8th year staying in the Amara in Lions View. It is always a great stay. The owners are always quick to address any problems that come up and are easy to contact. We love the amenities of the condo complex, the pools, palapa, and all the workers go out of their way to make you feel like you belong.

March stay at Amara

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation I've ever been on. The condo is within (short) walking distance to the beach, small shops and restaurants. We did not take too many trips to the beach, however, because the property staff took such good care of us by the pool. The condo itself is nothing short of amazing. I hope to return someday!
