My wife and I just returned from two stress free, relaxing weeks in Barra. After reviewing several places online, we wisely chose this property for a much needed break. Everything about this house was perfect. The location to "down town" Barra (2 minute walk), being right on the beach and the peacefulness of listening to the sounds of the waves rolling onto the shore. Tito and Carmen kept the house and grounds spotless and were always available if we happened to need something. The natural beauty of the area and the welcoming, gracious people of Barra made our vacation so memorable. This house we stayed at could not have been anymore perfect for us!
Casa Allegria is exactly as the pictures show. It more than met our expectations and did not disappoint. Clean and well kept it was a great place to call home during our stay in Zihua. The property is very safe and secure and is located within easy walking distance to beaches, restaurants and downtown.
After a long day of travel we were greeted by the housekeeper, Silvia, who for a small fee, had cold cervesas waiting for us. Pietro also provides some basic supplies so there was no need to quickly run to the store. Very nice, much appreciated, touches!
With 4 bedrooms and 3 & 1/2 baths there was plenty of room for our family to spread out. For our time spent “at home” we always gathered in the spacious outdoor area, either in the pool or just relaxing. The kitchen is very well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishes and utensils. There is a large 6 burner stove as well as an outdoor bar-b-que, both of which we used to prepare the fresh ingredients purchased at the Mercado Municipal.
One housekeeping was included with our two week stay and Silvia did a great job cleaning, changing the beds and washing the plentiful supply of towels.
Pietro is, by far, the best owner we have ever rented from! There is a binder in the house which he has filled with tips on beaches and restaurants and anything else you might want to know. His personal recommendation for a fishing captain proved to be excellent with 2 very successful fishing expeditions for us! He was always very quick to respond to any questions we had and even made the arrangements for the fishing and taxis. Very helpful since our Spanish does not go much beyond Hola and Gracias!
We would not hesitate to recommend Casa Allegria to anyone and hope that we are able to return one day soon. Thank you Pietro!
