About the property

Beachfront with Spectacular views

Beautifully appointed condo, on the beach, 18th floor with spectacular views. Take a walk out to the large balcony and enjoy awesome views of Mazatlan and most breathtaking sunsets.

2000 sq feet including spacious patio with folding patio doors that give you the feeling of outside living.

7 year old luxury condo building, centrally located. approximately 500 meters north of El Cid

Modern furnishings, with modern kitchen and top quality BBQ.

Cable TV, hi speed wifi, and 60' plasma TV, with soundbar and Apple TV..

Our Condo features custom marble floors, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances,water purification system,nine foot ceilings, very comfortably appointed kitchen with most amenities you will require.

The master bedroom has a King-size bed, 32' LCD TV, walk in shower.

2nd bedroom has two twin-size beds and it's own bathroom with a walk in shower.

You can relax by the infinity edge pool sipping your margarita or you can use the workout facility which looks out to the ocean or for those who enjoy long walks, the beach is only steps away from the pool.

Great location, walking distance to a variety of restaurants, and easy public transportation right out the front door.

The town is located in one of the richest fishing areas in the Pacific with stretches of beach running up and down the length of the hotel districts, residential neighborhoods and the downtown areas.

Beach activities are abundant and vary from para sailing, boat sailing, and strolls along the beach, to simply splashing in the shallow tide pools. There is a beautiful old part of the downtown where one can sit in the plaza, listen to jazz and folk musicians, meander under the twinkling lights viewing the goods of local artisans, and choose from a variety of restaurants.

There are adventures and tours to islands, quaint mountain towns to explore, and it is always an adventure to go to the downtown open market place.

Mazatlan has a wonderful transportation system of buses and little open-air volkswagen bugs called “pulmonias” that make getting to and from any area easy and relatively cheap.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In short, we really loved our stay at Las Gavias Golden shores #1802. The building is very well kept

and all the staff are very friendly. The pool is fabulous and the condo is well-located for restaurants

and transportation. The kitchen was well supplied with good appliances, pots & pans, serving dishes and dishware,

flatware and utensils - everything needed for any meal. As the cook in our family I especially appreciated the

quality knives. Shopping at MEGA was a treat.

Once we learned the bus system, it was more interesting to go everywhere by bus – we even took the bus out to Cerritos

Point. We also took the bus to the Centro area and stayed on past where most people get off at the Central Market

and the cathedral. We finally got off the bus over by the cruise ship terminal and just started walking – there were two

cruise ships in port and it was eye-opening to see all the taxis & tour operators there selling their wares. Travel by cruise

ship is not our thing. We just walked around a real residential neighborhood in that area (not in the historic district) where the

houses were immaculately cared for and beautifully landscaped – very pleasant.

With the presence of a gentle breeze coming off the ocean, we hardly used the air conditioning. Once we learned

to close the drapes in the later afternoon when the sun gets low in the sky, we never had to use the AC.

Our favorite restaurant was the El Fish Market north of the condo – great seafood, excellently prepared with good service.

We also liked Fat Fish. We enjoyed Panchos (the one south of the condo on the ocean) and had a long conversation while

there with the owner – their coconut shrimp was the best we had.

We did a lot of walking on the beaches – north from the condo to the marina and back; south from the condo to Panchos

and back. Our favorite was Playa Bruja starting at the south end and walking north to Cerritos Point and then have lunch at

Restaurant Mr. Lionoso. We wanted to walk the beach on Emerald Bay but just couldn’t fit it in.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Mazatlan every year for 28 years and this is nicest condo we have stayed in. The condo has all the comforts of home the master bed is so comfortable you will sleep great. Location is prefect on the beach close to the marina for fishing, walk the beach to nearby restaurants and shopping. Also close to the new mall by the marina / Walmart for food if needed.

Would like to thank Jim for the use of the condo looking forward to next year.
