Casa Allegria is exactly as the pictures show. It met our expectations and didn’t disappoint.
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!
My home away from home.
There is so much about this home that we like. I hope I don't forget all the good points.
*The location is perfect, away from the crowds and noise yet close to downtown Zihuatanejo, Madera beach, and the big supermarket (Mega Soriana). All walkable distances. There are no beach views from the house, but that is a minor point.
*The pictures of the house are accurate and it even looks better in person.
*The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates, cups, coffee maker, blender, toaster, and gadgets if you want to cook at home. If anything is missing, it's a dishwasher. (We all shared in washing dishes!)
*Every room has a permanent ceiling fan and each bedroom has an AC unit. Oh man, the AC was welcome at the end of the day!
*All the bathrooms are nice and functional with large showers in three of them.
*All the beds were comfortable (no complaints from anyone in our party)
*The house was clean and tidy when we arrived. House cleaning, once a week is included along with someone to maintain the swimming pool. (Super good)
*We stayed for the full month of November 2018, and any issues we had, were quickly resolved by the caretaker Sylvia, or Pietro the owner.
*The neighborhood around the house was very peaceful and the neighbors were very cordial. Walk to any corner to catch a cab; cheap and plentiful.
*The owner...Pietro quickly responded to any question through text or phone call as it arose. He was super. Pietro also provided one of the most concise guide books we have ever encountered in a HomeAway house. Doctors, Dentists, beaches to visit and of course restaurant references.
In short, we loved the house. We are already making plans to return.
Big, lovely house in residential Zihua - perfect base for our large family to relax and explore!
Pietro's house was a great base for us to relax and explore Zihua and surrounds. 3 large bedrooms and one smaller one with bunks - all with A/C and lots of space for us all to fit it (grandparents and 3 kids included!). The pool was fantastic - just note it is not fenced so you need to be careful with toddlers. Very well-equipped kitchen and lots of space inside and out for relaxing, reading etc. Great local restaurants nearby within a few minutes walk, and a super-handy convenience store around the corner. With the young kids in strollers/prams it took us less than 10 minutes to walk to Playa La Madera. Slightly longer walk up over the hill to Playa La Ropa (we taxied back with the kids). 15 - 20 min walk into town - or a short bus or taxi ride away. We used the local bus to get to and from Ixtapa easily. Pietro had left a lot of information on things to do, restaurants etc. and contacts for taxis which was fantastic! Silvia was very attentive and helpful with anything we needed (including a potty!) - thanks! Would stay again if we were holidaying in Zihua. Well recommended!
Fantastic property well-maintained, felt totally safe
Fantastic property well-maintained, felt totally safe, we had Sylvia come in and cook a few meals for us the best meals we had the whole time she’s an awesome cook, she was totally willing to help anything that we needed, would recommend this place to all my friends and family!! Great holiday
Perfect house for rest and relaxation. The location was ideal for the proximity to beaches and shops
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.
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.
