Perfect

  • 5 of 5
It is difficult to add anything more to the reviews already posted. We spent a month at Casa de Alegria and did not find the time too long. The upper terrace is charming and very well equipped. All the amenities were provided including dish and hand soaps, bathroom tissue and paper towels. Living “outdoors” was such a pleasure after hibernating during our Canadian winter. The dipping pool and lush gardens were welcome after a day of sun, sea and sand. The village has much to offer: great food, classes for your favourite pastime (mine was cooking, my friend’s was language) and volunteer opportunities. A half day in a boat whale watching was a great experience. Dolphins frolicking in the bay another special treat. Bob and Sheila are wonderful hosts. We left feeling we had made new friends.

Luxury in Mexico!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Casa de la Alegria. The views and accommodation are stunning and the villa had everything we needed for a comfortable and peaceful holiday. The décor is authentically Mexican, artistic and functional with everything we needed for self-catering. the top floor is a wonderful hide-away and with the outdoor sitting area, hammock, comfortable loungers and vaulted ceiling - it feels like a fabulous tree house! Bob and Sheila are very thoughtful hosts and looked after all our needs and had great recommendations for activities. The village is quaint and we enjoyed walking, shopping at the market and taking Spanish lessons at the local school. There are plenty of restaurants and we especially enjoyed Martins. The beach walks are wonderful and the people very friendly. Melaque and the surrounding area makes interesting exploring, either by bus or car. It was a great holiday to experience "real Mexico" in a luxurious and safe location that felt like home.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful setting on a hill overlooking Tenacatita Bay and the surrounding countryside. Loved the openness of the upper level with welcome breezes. Showering using the outdoor shower was so much fun! Night time views of the town lights spread out below and a canopy of stars overhead are wonderful memories. An incredible variety of lush tropical gardens and flowers lead to the dipping pond which was always a welcome oasis after a warm, sunny relaxing visit to the beach. Sheila is a hostess extraordinaire! So bubbly, cheerful and helpful!

Great House

  • 5 of 5
Both the main floor and roof top suites at Casa de la Alegria are amazing places to stay. We’ve stayed in both and returned to stay again!

Main floor suite: The dining living room has large arched double windows that let the outside in and provide views of the bay and mountain. The bedroom is screened in. Some of the windows can be closed at night for quiet to shut out the sounds of the village. There is a large well equipped kitchen for those who love to cook; the house is nicely decorated with Mexican folk art. The main suite is more enclosed than the roof top suite; this is nice for people who want more shelter from the elements. There are two balconies that catch sun and shade at different times of day. This suite is a full-out, well equipped, home away from home. We loved dipping in the pool to cool down after walking up from the village and reading our books there. Casa de la Alegria is an easy walk to the village and beach but peaceful and a little removed from all the activity there.

The rooftop suite is open to the view of the bay, jungle hills and village, the sun, moon, and stars. The covered kitchen/dining area and the covered bedrooms/ bathrooms are surrounded by open decks and connected by a covered walk way. The high point of this suite for us was seeing the stars above us at night and watching the sunset and the whole sky light up over Tenacatita Bay in the evening. We loved dipping in the pool to cool down after walking up from the village and reading our books there.

A Wonderful Feliz Navidad!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Casa de Alegria for our family Christmas get together. Sheila and Bob were such nice hosts. The Terrace Villa that we had was so amazing and open. Loved the outdoor shower, open kitchen and ocean view. Attention to detail was paid on all needs! The terrace was decorated with such tradition and taste. Everything Goldsmiths recommended was always spot on. We really enjoyed our Christmas Dinner at Martin's in La Manzanilla! My plan is to definitely return!

Casa de Alegria is even more beautiful in person!

We loved our stay in the Upper Terrace and look forward to a return visit. Two weeks was not enough in this beautifully appointed outdoor living space. Comfortable bed, nice linens, lots of towels, lovely Mexican dishes, glassware and candles!! It is quite a hike up to the casa from the village but after a few days it wasn't a big deal. It was fun to explore the neighborhood and walking up the hill (or stair path with it's amazing vistas) kept us in shape. We also made great use of the outdoor shower and dipping pool. Bring a flashlight for coming home at night. People are so friendly in La Manzanilla! We loved the village and the beaches were perfect for swimming.
