Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for everything Mark. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back. The beach is out of this world and the sand is white and powdery. I golfed 3 rounds on the couse right behind the house and just loved it. The weather was perfect for the 2 weeks that we were there. Every night we walked to 5th avenue for supper, shopping and just to people watch. What a great spot. We stayed in and used the BBQ a few times and would recommend that to everyone. We were able to find inexpensive groceries in huge clean modern stores (Walmart was our favorite) and even took a run into Costco in Cancun for steaks. The Mayan Riviera is truly a beautiful gem and thank you again for exposing us to that. We look forward to renting from you again.

Cozy home with great location and awesome pool!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alegría exceeded our expectations in terms of the number of extras and amenities! Mark, the owner was great and very understanding about our changes in travel plans on multiple occasions! The house was very comfortable with 3 bedrooms for our family. My girls slept on the sofa bed since they're little but one adult wouldn't likely be just as fine on it too! The pool is shared among a few houses but it was mostly our private pool for most of our stay, and the times we did share it, we had a blast learning French from our Belgian neighbors! When we arrived, one of the guest bedrooms' air conditioner was not working but it was fixed by a technician within an hour! There is a washer and dryer, shampoo in the bathrooms and great big fluffy beach towels! The BBQ grill was great for grilling mahi that was caught locally! Overall, Casa Alegría was a phenomenal home and I can't wait to go back! As far as distance from 5th street(Quinta Avenida)...it's close, about 0.7 miles. So descriptions of 10-15 minute walk is for those with good overall health/fitness. Anyone with foot, knee, or hip problems will take a little more time, but it's definitely doable. Taxis are ok, but the fares start adding up after a few days. From Casa Alegria it should be no more than approximately 70-100 pesos to as far away as Walmart. We also recommend grocery shopping at Soriana. Way better selection of food and produce. Mark, if you get a hammock and some bikes to use around town, you'll have to beat renters off with a stick!! Thanks again for making our dream vacation a reality!

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Alegria for an 11 day stay over the Christmas holidays. It was fabulous. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The photos do not do it justice. We had plenty of room for our family of 6, with 4 teenagers each having plenty of room to spread out. The pool is beautiful and was a great spot to cool off after a day at the beach. We also enjoyed the ability to share family meals around the large dining room table, or outside on the pool-side patio.

The property is also extremely well situated. It is in a very safe neighbourhood (beautiful lush area - great for long walks) and the owners of the neighbouring houses were all extremely friendly and hospitable. Short walk to the beach and within easy walking distance of the more touristic 5th avenue - where we regularly went for dinner and shopping. There is also a great golf course within a 5 minute walk of the house, which made the golfers in our family extremely happy! The nearby beach was, in our opinion, the nicest beach in the Playa del Carmen area. Very wide beach, with much less congestion than other areas. Perfect for relaxing!!

The owner Mark was extremely helpful with everything relating to the rental and was always available to answer any questions we had in advance of and during our stay - making the whole experience very easy and pleasant.

I would not hesitate recommending this property to any of our family and friends. We hope to return sometime soon!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in Casa Alegria for one glorious week. Due to a last minute change, only two couples came instead of three. The house was so big it could easily accommodate four couples! Well laid out, stupendous kitchen, fabulous pool. It was all we expected and more. Mark was an attentive host, made sure everything was looked after including our shuttle to and from the airport. The neighbors were very gracious and helpful, educating us on the area and giving great snorkeling tips! We'll be back!

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

This house is lovely. Very well maintained and comfortable. Our family of six had plenty of space and everything we needed. This home provides more than the typical rental. Beach towels and floats, laundry soap, basic pantry items etc... The outside pool area is a plus. The location is close enough that you can walk to the beach or 5th avenue, but far enough away from the crowds. The owner is easily accessible for information about the area which helps if you are not familiar. He also checks in with you during your stay. We truly enjoyed our stay at this villa and are planning to return. Great property.
