Perfect house for rest and relaxation. The location was ideal for the proximity to beaches and shops

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house. There were many great napping and lounge spots as well a soaking pool. The bedrooms all had airconditioning and comfortable matresses for resting easy. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals together. We hope to rent this house in December this year.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful accommodation in a safe, friendly Mexican neighbourhood well-located within walking distance to most everywhere. The six of us who rented the house had lots of room to relax, the bedrooms were very comfortable, and the covered patio area and pool are absolutely wonderful. The house is beautifully finished with high quality furniture, nicely tiled, and lovely decorations.

Of all the places I have rented in Mexico over the years, this is by far the best equipped I have ever been in. The kitchen and dining area have everything one could ever need – lots of dishes, glasses, cutlery, pots and pans, and many extras other rental places don’t usually include. It was nice having a large washing machine and we loved the smell of our clothes after drying on the clothesline!

The house is in a flat area, only about a 10-15 minute walk to Playa Madera, Playa La Ropa, Centro, and the big supermarket, Commercial. The corner store a block away was really handy for almost anything from freshly baked buns to cold beer and ice.

Pietro was very helpful and called occasionally to be sure everything was fine. If one had a problem or a question, it was easy to contact him from the land line in the house. The guide book he has put together with hints and directions regarding tours, restaurants, etc. is very helpful.

We loved our month at Casa Allegria and have already booked to come back next year!

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Allegria for a week with our two kids and my father. The house was perfect for all of us with plenty of room. Everything was very clean and tidy and well taken care of. The bedrooms were all good sizes and all had air conditioning. The pool in the back was very clean (the pool guy came several times during our stay) and the kids spent a lot of time in there. The 'deep' end is only around 5' so it was great for my father as well who doesn't know how to swim.

When we arrived we were met by Silvia who for a small price can have fresh guacomole and pico de gallo waiting for you as well as cold beer for the adults and horchata for the kids. Thank you Pietro for offering this. After a long day of travelling it was so nice to have these things when we arrived. We also hired Silvia to cook for us one night and the food was delicious so we highly recommend this as well.

The house is located about a 15 minute walk from downtown Zihautanejo, in an area with lots of little convenience stores and restaurants. We ate delicious tacos almost every day from the places just across the street where they make the tortillas as you order so all of the food is very fresh.

Pietro arranged a day with a local captain (Luis) for us. Luis first took us fishing before ending up on a little Island across from Ixtapa (called Isla Ixtapa) on which we ate the blackfin Tuna we caught, played on the beach, and snorkeled along the reef behind the island. We loved that so much that we hired Luis for a second day of deep sea fishing where we managed to catch a sailfish that must have weighed 80lbs!

Martine, the taxi driver was very helpful as well. He arranged our transportation for our excursions and our trip back to the airport. We just hailed a taxi for the trips to the beach and into town. The other taxi drivers were very friendly but they spoke very little to no English so a few words of Spanish were very helpful.

We spent two full days at the beach (Playa la Ropa) where you can rent chairs/umbrellas and spend the day relaxing. This beach was great for the kids as there's no dropoff, the water is warm and the waves aren't too big. I recommend going during the week as it's less busy.

Pietro was the best host, very friendly and checked in several times during our stay and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. This was the most relaxing vacation and we will be back.

Thanks Pietro!

Great house - beware of Joel

  • 5 of 5

The pros:

The house is great: clean and well-kept with good quality furniture. The beds are comfortable, high-end mattresses.

Pietro was a very pleasant and helpful host, and went out of his way to help every time we had an issue. I highly recommend reading the guide he left behind with all the restaurant reviews and tips on what to see and do around Zihua.

The kitchen is very well equipped, good quality equipment, sharp knives, lots of cutlery and pots.

Shower pressure in the bathrooms is great.

The pool is clean and pleasant, the poolboy came twice in one week. The back patio is ideal for relaxation.

The housekeeper is nice, cheerful and does a great job.

The cons:

The location of the house is not ideal, but this is reflected in the very fair price Pietro charges for the house. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk, the giant supermarket (Comercial) is 10 minutes away. Taxis are frequent and will take you to the beach for 40 pesos.

The only negative thing I can say about the house is, that it is sorely lacking mosquito nets on the windows. Every morning we were eaten alive. Apply mosquito repellent to your ankles before you have breakfast, or you will have 15 bites within ten minutes. Thankfully they don't bite over the knee.

The warning:

Beware of Joel, the taxi driver who is sorta attached to the house, who will try to "help" you. He is a crook, a liar and a cheat.

We agreed that his wife would cook a 3 course surprise birthday lunch for my wife for a fix (but relatively high) amount. They turned up with one less course than agreed, without any explanation whatsoever to what happened to one of the mains, and tried to charge 200 pesos more for ingredient costs, even though it was agreed in writing (over texts) that ingredients were included. The food was very nice but the mood was rotten.

Previously the same day he sold us a canoe trip for a 25% markup over the fix price, and tried to convince us to go on a boat trip for 50% more than the fixed price of the fisherman's collective.

Magnificent house in a unassuming neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had more than enough space. Because we love to cook we found the spacious, well equipped kitchen to be a fantastic bonus. The villa-like home is beautifully tiled and well kept, with ample space to relax both inside and out within its walled perimeter. The sleeping areas are air conditioned and there are several balconies. Small shops are available within the block, and the beach is actually very close. Zihuantenejo downtown is also quite close. For touring one can just hail a a very affordable taxi at the corner and travel to more distant beaches or marketplaces. In the neighbourhood, being able to speak some Spanish is useful, but in the tourist areas, in town, in most establishments, people speak English. If you love food, there are so many restaurants with superb food, and beachside eateries where you can bask, swim and feast. We loved every day and hope to return. Thanks Pietro!

Ale

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Mexican house!. The decorations, style, pool, rooms, kitchen… everything was wonderful. We had a peaceful & beautiful vacation. The outdoor grill and outside dining area was perfect, we spent the evenings eating and watching everyone having fun in the pool. Fresh tortillas just in the corner. The beaches and market also at a short distance. Beautiful view from the balcony and the house surroundings. Friendly staff welcoming us and arranging taxi transportation and activities.

Una casa muy bonita y acogedora. ¡Gracias por hacernos sentido en nuestra propia casa!. La decoración, alberca, cuartos cocina… todo hermoso. Tuvimos unas vacaciones bonitas y pacificas. El patio con su área para comer y cocinar estuvo perfecto. Pasamos las tardes comiendo en familia y disfrutando viendo a la familia en la alberca. Tortillas frescas en la esquina de la casa. Las playas y el mercado a una distancia corta. Bellas vistas del balcón y alrededor de la casa. Los empleados recibieron amistosamente y nos ayudaron a buscar taxi y actividades.

Gracias!
