very comfortable in a quiet secure, safe neighborhood.

Looking to kick back ? This might be the place for you. It is a bit of a challenge to get into town if not knowing the area. I would like to have a phone available with commonly used phone numbers,taxi and businesses that deliver. The botanero across the street is a fun experience. At a botanero, if you are drinking, the food keeps coming. Nacho the cat is a mainstay and will want to be petted. You might try a hike to Calachosa at Ranchito if you are looking for exercise. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay Peter and for the suggestion of a phone. Most guests do have their own phones but I also provide a local cell phone at the villa which has taxi/emergency numbers in the contacts along with a binder full of tips on how to get the bus or taxi, maps, food business cards, things to do etc Great minds think alike! I’m really glad you enjoyed your time away from the craziness of Melaque over the holiday season. All the best, Lorraine

Relaxing Mexico Winter Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the Casa Mango or Taxi Drivers call it Casa Lorraine. Beautiful spacious home. Well looked after and regular maintenance of pool and home cleaning once a week. Felt very immersed in the local culture and people as the house is 2 km from town. Very rural in a Mango orchard setting. Goats and horses out the front door. Got to experience the local transit bus...AKA the chicken bus literally as I saw one of the locals with his rooster on the bus. I did feel it was inconvenient at times being so far out. There is no Wi-Fi which I needed for work unfortunately and just to stay connected with family. No TV which was missed by my husband, but he did read a few books which I thought was amazing! It was a great holiday as we did a lot of exploring of other small towns close by and enjoyed the hot weather and the great ocean breeze.

Just like a little private resort.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house just outside of Malaque. Best of both worlds. The country and a short chicken bus ride to town. The pool was top notch. Lorraine was a great hostess and her neighbour's are the loveliest people.

Very quiet and safe town. Can't wait to visit again.

Beautiful Casa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Casa Mango and we are already plotting our return! The place was beautiful inside and out and we felt at home there right away. My favourite parts were the amazing, clean, private pool and the resident Gato, Noche. I sincerely loved every aspect of our stay at the Casa and could go on and on but I would recommend renting it and finding out the rest for yourself. We had a rental car during our stay and I think that that is needed as it is a bit out of the way which is exactly what we were looking for. The owner makes the whole process easy and stress free which helps a lot. Thank you Lorraine for the wonderful experience and for sharing your Casa with us.

Casa Mango is a gem - a private, beautiful oasis off the beaten path, minutes from Melaque.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a relaxing week at Casa Mango in March and loved it. The villa itself is gorgeous - open plan, beautiful Mexican details everywhere, very comfy beds, lovely pool and lush garden. Kitchen has everything you need. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Melaque (about 5-10 minutes away by bus) when you want some down time - perfect for kids. We had debated renting a car for our vacation but with a 7 peso bus running every 15 minutes we were glad we didn't.

Casa Mango is central enough that we were able to easily get to Melaque, Barra la Navidad, La Manzanilla all using the local buses and only used taxis (readily available) for a couple of later evening returns and a zip up to Cuastocomates (just over the hill and well worth a look - great seafood, calmer waves for swimming).

Melaque is a lot of fun - real Mexico, most of the tourists are Mexican, people are super friendly, the central square (Zocalo) is bustling with activity and has a fun night market - loads of yummy food. The beach has lots going on as well - kids boogie boarding, roving musicians, restaurants galore. For slightly calmer waves, it's worth a day trip to La Manzanilla where you can also visit a crocodile sanctuary.

Lorraine is lovely to deal with - she made renting and arriving a breeze. I highly recommend this spot for a family (or couple, friends) visiting Melaque.
