Very Private and secure 4-Bedroom, modern Mexican architecture home in the lovely Rancho Cortés neighborhood. Casa Nardo is a large home designed to entertain. Pool and garden sit adjacent to a ravine within a city green belt. Situated about a 15 minute drive from downtown, Casa Nardo is a peaceful retreat surrounded by nature. Located on Cuernavaca's most privileged weather area with an extraordinary view, this beautiful home is the perfect weekend getaway or for long vacation stays. Welcome!

The space
Designed by renown Mexican architect Andrés Casillas in 1973, a student and collaborator of Pritzker-prize winner Luis Barragan (1980), Casa Nardo is a feast to all Barragan-style home-lovers. The skylights and windows allow for visual tracking of light throughout the day; the floods of natural light and views of nature are the key purposes of the windows. The stark, yet colorful facade of the house blends in with its neighbors, giving no hints to the personality of its heavily-walled interiors. Its entrance hall is modest, but its combination of geometric simplicity, flush surfaces and rough plaster, invites the guest to explore the place within, giving way to the most magnificent blend of nature and architecture when arriving to the back terrace.

It is in this open and grand terrace, with its uninterrupted and wide view of the manicured garden, pool, and amazing natural ravine, where you and your loved ones will probably spend most of your gathering time.

The house was ingeniously interior decorated by my cousin, an architect herself, that symphonically combines detailed modern-classic (here's an oxymoron) Mexican furniture pieces and other decorating touches. The purpose of the ornamentation is to accentuate the building, not to overtake it. And yet, spending time in this marvelous house is comfortable and relaxing, making sure that when the social gathering is over and you retreat yourself to your sleeping quarters, peace and serenity surround you.

I could go on and on describing this architectural jewel, but needless to say, my opinion would not be objective. I hope the many pictures allow you to decide for yourself if this is the place for you and your family to stay. I, for one, love visiting with my family and loved ones every opportunity I can. When I'm not in this corner of the eternal spring, we open the doors to you.

Bienvenidos!

Where you’ll be

Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico

The neighborhood is a residential and safe area. However, as it is the case elsewhere in town, we recommend that you park your car inside overnight if possible, and that you lock the doors every time you step out of the place. However, it is certainly OK to leave the vehicle outside and also safe to walk and jog nearby. As a secluded and high-end neighborhood, you will appreciate the quiet ambient and friendly neighbors. Feel free to say hello to them as they walk their dogs or take a stroll along the beautiful rolling hills.

I'm originally from Mexico. I went to school on the West Coast (Stanford University) and then to post graduate school in Washington, DC and Milan Italy. I now live in DC and work in the high tech industry. My wife works for an international environmental non-profit, and we have owned our current home since 2003. We are both ecologically conscious and easy-going. We have a wonderful, tiny and playful Bichon Frisè who IS a members of the family. In addition to being proud hosts (and I personally reply to each and every request), we also enjoy being Airbnb guests whenever we travel. And we do all this because we enjoy meeting new and interesting folks. We therefore look forward to getting to know you as well.
