What a great spot! We really enjoyed our stay in this clean and truly beautiful casita with a luxurious bed. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating and also had great recommendations for activities in La Paz and Baja in general. The breakfasts were incredible! Fresh juice, coffee and traditionally prepared fish each morning. It was the best food we ate in the La Paz area! They also said that dinner would be prepared on request. I can only imagine how delicious dinner would be after those breakfasts. We did not take them up on their offer, but we would definitely recommend it.
Light sleepers take note: there is an active rooster population in the area so you might want to bring ear plugs if you want to sleep in.
We chose Casa Xochitl because they are pet-friendly - we love traveling with our golden retriever, and it's normally quite a problem finding a nice place that would accept our dog as well. But - that said - after the amazing experience we had, we have now found ourselves a home away from home for any visit to La Paz! Mike and Nuirka and their puppy welcomed us warmly as we were their long-time friends. The room we stayed at is not just a regular room - it is a luxurious and ample spaced room, with a walk in closet, big main room with cozy bed and living area, a large bathroom with shower and bathtub. We loved our room, and slept very comfortably, but as they say that love goes through the belly, we were enchanted by the hospitality of Nuirka and Michael. Nuirka is the best chef ever! In the morning Nuirka prepared us the best breakfast/brunch ever, freshly squeezed orange juice with fruit, espresso just as we liked it, a salad, fresh fish with a delicious salsa en nogada and baked tomato. Honestly, it was better than in any restaurant. We enjoyed our conversations with our hosts, and are grateful for the local tips they shared with us.
The only bad thing was that we couldn't stay longer! We can't wait to return to La Paz and stay with Michael, Nuirka and their puppy girl Bully.
A welcomed first stop visit to La Paz. Our stay was so pleasant - Nuirka and Michael were great and accommodating hosts. The room and living space was culturally artistic and so comfortable. The food was so outstanding and memorable, we never wanted to leave the table. We will be returning to relive the Casa Xochitel hospitality experience, sadly it's not soon enough. Thank you for such a wonderful stay Michael and Nuirka.
Mike and Niurka were some of the kindest hosts that I have ever experienced, not just through Airbnb but anywhere.
Their home, their food is art that they are excited to share with you! They want to talk to you, learn your story and share theirs.
They gave excellent tips and recommendations and were ready and able to help us with anything we needed. Including a mosquito net for our bed!
Even with the few mosquito bites we left with, we were completely floored by our time with them. Do not pass up this unique and warm experience to meet a truly amazing couple!
