About Jay Mesinger

We live in Boulder, Co. We travel extensively throughout the world for both pleasure and business. We own a family business in an industry that we have been operating in for 41 years. We buy and sell Corporate Jet Aircraft. We built this house based on the lifestyle we enjoy. We especially wanted both ocean views as well as lush tropical gardens. You will enjoy both at Casa Alas

Jay Mesinger purchased this house in 2006

Why Jay Mesinger chose Playa La Ropa

My wife Sandra and I have had friends that started to move from the United States to Zihuatanejo over 30 years ago. This location for us provides friendships and wonderful cultural mixes. We find the people charming and welcoming. Zihuatanejo is easy to get to from the States and is safe and inviting.

What makes this house unique

When we get to our second home we enjoy a staff that has worked with our family for over 11 years. Relaxing at the pool, walking to the beach and just cooking in the fully appointed kitchen provide a most relaxing stay at Casa Alas. We try to provide what the Five Star Client would expect. Safe secure environment, staff 6 days a week to clean included in the rate. 3 fabulous dinners cooked at no charge for the chef. Client provides groceries. She will shop for you each day of the dinners providing the most fresh ingredients. Many clients never leave the property except for a few rare excursions to a local restaurant. Once you secure this unique property, write us to help you get the most from your week in Zihuatanejo.

She will also cook 3 gourmet dinners with a one week stay at no extra charge and owner supplied groceries. She can cook extra nights for $35.00 US per night. Renters provide groceries. Veronica has worked for us for 11 years. She will also do shopping for dinners. Please watch the video link provided in the video section to see Veronica in full cooking action. Our Concierge who is located just outside our home can help with reservations and directions. He is also available for any problems that may arise. He speaks perfect English. He can arrange for Massages to take place at the house. Having just returned from Europe and experiencing a wonderful villa rental it became even more clear what a housekeeper coming 6 days per week can mean to the experience. The house and bathrooms are always clean and fresh towels and linens on a regular basis.

One Cold Winter, Two Visits!

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to this fabulous home every winter for several years. We had the pleasure of visiting twice this long, cold winter. We stayed for a week as a couple in January and returned in March to spend a week in the sun with our college aged children. We continue to come back because the owners, Sandy and Jay are delightful and really could not be more kind or helpful. Questions and concerns receive lightening fast response! They truly want you to be comfortable and enjoy their home! Their home is loved and well maintained. Everything is in working order, so nice. Speaking of nice, Veronica the house keeper does a great job keeping the house spic and span and is sweet as pie. The entire staff are friendly, attentive and accommodating! This home really meets all of our vacation priorities. We love the sense of security and privacy this tasteful home provides. We also enjoy the indoor/outdoor living space,infinity pool, bay views, walking access to the beach and restaurants and all the pretty little birds that arrive in the early morning for a sip of water. This is a wonderful vacation home!

Beautiful , beautiful, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

An amazing gorgeous property with a gorgeous view. Beautifully decorated and well layed out. You don’t have to even leave the space as everything is right there. All the amenities you can think of are provided Kitchen is well equipped if you are wanting to cook yourself. However the breakfasts made every morning by Veronica ( optional) are authentic Mexican and are highly recommended. Our children love her cooking. If you are coming to Zihuatanejo we highly recommend staying at this property.

Fabulous view, spectacular home, super comfortable, great location! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mesinger's home in Zihautanejo was truly nothing short of perfect. The house was outfitted with absolutely everything you could think of, and only the very best from the linens to the beautiful Mexican pottery in the kitchen. The location of the property was ideal, within walking distance to both the beach and to the charming town of Zihautanejo. Veronica, their housepkeeper, comes daily to tidy and prepare breakfast if you want. She is as lovely as the home! Jay and Sandy both, are a pleasure to deal with - prompt in responding, great resources of what's good to do in Zihautanejo and just great people. Thank you for providing such a stunning place to vacation with our family! A real memory maker!!

Everything was perfect....great breakfasts by Veronica, a beautiful and functional house that has every amenity you need, a great view and easy access to fantastic restaurants. Anything you require to make your stay more enjoyable is instantly addressed by the staff or the owner. You really don't want to leave. We will be back again. And again....
