Interaction with Guests
Juana & Victor are the caretakers of the house and our guests.
Cuernavaca, the city of eternal spring, lies at 5,000 ft in the mountains of Central Mexico. Throughout the year, the sun shines every day with temperatures around 75F. The rainy season in the late summer months usually brings rain in the afternoon and evenings.
Cuernavaca boasts Cortez Castle with wall to floor murals painted by Diego Rivera. There are many cultural events, open air markets, restaurants, art exhibits and concerts. Cuernavaca is a convenient base for visiting Mexico City, the great Aztec pyramids in Teotihuacan, Xochicalco, and Taxco, the silver capital of Mexico.
The house is within 10 minutes taxi ride to the Zocalo or city centre. A taxi costs $40 pesos, or about USD$3.50.
You are able to rent a car for visiting sites in & around Cuernavaca. Victor can organise any type of tour guide and transport required.
Other Things to Note
Juana is a formidable cook and we recommend that you let her cook classic Mexican food, as this is her speciality.
We request that you leave a tip of $3USD per day per guest, provided the service you receive meets with your approval, which we feel certain will be the case.
The tip is not obligatory, but it is part of the Mexican custom and we hope you will participate so that all guests in the future will continue to receive superior service while guests in our home.
This house is amazing and huge—completely open-air, except the bedrooms, sleek architecture, beautiful contemporary paintings and sculpture, and very comfy furniture. We absolutely loved it! The ceiling in the main room must be 15 feet high, with three ceiling fans to use on warm days. The design is unabashedly contemporary, yet nods to the city's colonial past with beautiful stone floors, antique doors and iron hinges and hardware. A short walk or cheap taxi from the centro. The landscaping is also beautiful, with orchids, palms, and trees sagging with limes, oranges, and grapefruit. Victor is a very helpful host, the American liaison, Bill, could not be more delightful, and Juana is a wonderful, classic cook—her hearty, al fresco breakfasts of huevos rancheros, pancakes, and fresh papaya and melon had us putting off lunch until 3 pm most days. As an avid cook, I would add that the kitchen is particularly wonderful, with an enormous commercial range.
So sad we had to leave! Our 2 wk stay was absolutely perfect. The open concept house is gorgeous and serene. The staff was very sweet and made us feel right at home! Morgan was very helpful and answered all my questions right away. Can't wait to go back!
When I walked into the home, I immediately felt as if this home was "special." It is a spacious, tastefully decorated home full of beautiful art work and interesting books. Juana, Victor and Hugo, the caretakers of the home, made us feel welcome. Juana is a great cook and it was lovely enjoying daily breakfasts in a beautifully set table looking out to the pool. When we had to suddenly change our travel plans, I emailed Morgan (the owner) asking to extend our stay, she called the home immediately and was very accommodating. I enjoyed speaking to her and was delighted to rent the home for several more days. My husband and daughters all proclaim that "this was the best home we have ever rented!" Thank you!
Fue una experiencia con matricula de honor. La casa es fabulosa, la atención impecable y los dias que estuvimos en la casa nos sentimos como si fuera un hogar, ya que la anfitriona conserva la casa con verdadero espiritu hogareño y aconedor. Esperamos y no tenemos la menor duda de que regresaremos a esta joyita escondida en cuernavaca.
The house exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful setting that instantly feels relaxing and luxurious. The open-air rooms were perfect for our family (weather in Cuernavaca is incredibly even) and each room is spacious. The master bedroom is separated from the 2 guest bedrooms, which we liked. The helpers are unobtrusive and very helpful. They are long-time members of the family staff and really understand the art of service. Security is excellent as there are two security gates (one manned), before arriving at the house. We found two things useful but not required: having a car and speaking Spanish. Morgan was very helpful and I highly recommend this place. We plan to return. Thanks Morgan!!
This villa went above and beyond our already high expectations. We had the most lovely stay at this Casa and were really quite sad to leave. Juana and Victor are the most lovely hosts, and Juana really is the a fantastic cook (I've been having dreams about her pollo con mole). There really wasn't any negative aspect to the house; if I ever go back to Cuernavaca, I will make sure to book again.
