Interaction with Guests
We are happy to help with tourist information, tips on local travel and transport, good restaurants, and Mexican culture.
We are located in a conventional safe neighborhood only three blocks from the city center. The people are very friendly and hardworking. There are several small family type restaurants with excellent food. There is some graffiti just like in New York, London, Paris etc.
Public transportation is just outside our door, taxis or local mini buses which pass every minute or two. The prices are very reasonable. Many places like the zocalo and main city market are less than 10 minutes walking distance.
Exploring Cuernavaca is easy--you are a short walk or taxi ride from the Central Market, historical Zocalo, Cortéz Palace, Cathedral and Borda Gardens, as well as many fine restaurants. If you would like to explore the surrounding attractions, the central bus station is minutes away, or we can help you arrange for a private bilingual guide and chauffer service.
Other Things to Note
One of our suites has a kitchenette; for the others small refrigerators and microwaves are available. Nice little carry out cafes are nearby as well as 2 bakeries and a nice fruit stand.
* Monthly pricing does not include breakfast. When available you can request the Diego Rivera Suite which has a small kitchenette.
Our guests are always well mannered an use good judgement. When we get to know them we wish they were our neighbors forever.
Staying at Bill's was amazing. The place is really well located, you can take a 5 minute walk to Cuernavaca's center, tourist around, and return to Bill's to catch your breath and cool down, then repeat the process all over again.
Bill is an excelent host, and has a very high level of service, he was very kind and very helpfull with every thing we needed. Breakfast was delicious, and hand made bread provided by Bill was a very nice touch.
The whole house is perfectly decorated, attention to detail is magnificent, every room in the house is dedicated to a different mexican artist and decorated according to the artist's taste's and art.
We will definitely come back to Bill's every time we stay in Cuernavaca, the stay is perfect for resting, discovering the city, and enjoying of Bill's great taste for mexican art & culture.
Bill was an amazing host offering the best advice on what to do in Cuernavaca, preparing delicious breakfasts. The house is certainly a tropical paradise with Mexican artifacts and plants in every nook and cranny! Wonderful space for a group. Private and shared space create a wonderful environment.
My wife, daughter, and I spent four nights at Bill's charming home in Cuernavaca. Bill was very helpful in providing arrival instructions, having someone to greet us, and in making suggestions for what to do once we were there. His home and the rooms are beautifully decorated with his extensive collection of Mexican crafts and native plants. The house is about a 15-minute walk from the zocalo, but some visitors may prefer to take a cab, due to the heavy traffic and steep hills. The house is near a busy street, but traffic noise was not a problem since the rooms face an inner courtyard. And finally, Bill serves a mean breakfast, having once been a cooking instructor. Overall, a great experience.
Staying at Bill's incredible home was the highlight of our weekend trip to Cuernavaca. Not only is the house itself a marvel, with many unique touches such as the rooftop orchid garden and the comfortable and spotless rooms, but Bill is a phenomenal host. We immediately felt at home, as Bill is a wealth of information about Mexico in general and Cuernavaca in particular. Also, he helped us plan a day trip to Taxco and had great tips about the best way to make the most of the trip. Still, chatting with him over the delightful breakfasts that he made was a great way to start each day. I hope that we will have the opportunity to come back to Cuernavaca, if only to say hi to Bill and enjoy his hospitality again!
Alojándonos en la casa increíble de Bill era el punto más memorable de nuestro finde viaje a Cuernavaca. No sólo es la casa una maravilla, con muchos toques únicos como el jardín de orquídeas en la azotea y las habitaciones cómodas y impecables, sino Bill es un anfitrión fenomenal. Inmediatamente nos sentimos como en casa, ya que Bill es una gran fuente de información acerca de México en general y Cuernavaca en particular. También, él nos ayudó a planear un día de viaje a Taxco y tenía buenos consejos sobre la mejor manera de aprovechar de nuestro viaje. Sin embargo, charlando con él durante los deliciosos desayunos que hizo fue la mejor manera de empezar nuestro día. Espero que tengamos la oportunidad de volver a Cuernavaca, aunque sólo sea para saludar a Bill y disfrutar de su hospitalidad de nuevo!
Bill Cummins was an amazing host. He was very warm, welcoming and accommodating. We felt like we were visiting a favourite relative! Bill also prepares a wonderful breakfast. It was great to sit back with a cup of coffee in the patio, listen to the birds sing and enjoy his tranquil space.
