Our beautiful apartment is in the heart of Mexico City's hip, cafe neighborhood. There are parks, museums, and excellent public transit just nearby. We're also gracious hosts who can help travelers plan their trip and find all the best restaurants.
Lovely, quiet room in the heart of the Roma District. Safe, beautiful apartment located off the street. Lots of cafes, restaurants, and bars. Walking distance from public transportation and just a couple stops from museums and the centro. Also walking distance to Ecobici, the French-inspired bikeshare program. Wifi, private bathroom, access to spacious shared common areas as well as the kitchen.
We are a social married couple that spend a lot of time having small dinner parties and cooking meals. A journalist and non-profit executive, we are outdoorsy and like to explore our adopted city. Once you are here, we'd be happy to point you in the right direction. Oh, and there is a cat in the apartment.
It's a quiet house. We don't complain if the neighbors are noisy, but they rarely are. As such, we ask you keep the noise down after 11 pm. No unexpected overnight guests please. If you want to bring a couple friends over that's fine, but please let us know beforehand and you are responsible for whatever damage they do. Please keep in mind that while this is a wonderful, vibrant town, it is Mexico City and there are people who will take advantage of you if you are not careful. This is a refuge, and an office during the day, not a party house.
Guest will have their own bedroom and bathroom, plus access to the shared living area, including home theater, kitchen, free wifi, and back patio with hammock. We also have lots of reading material to plan your trip. We can loan you a local cell phone if you like, a washing machine, and unfettered access to a very friendly cat.
Guests are welcome to interact as much as they like. Mostly our place is a quiet refuge. We do host frequent dinner parties with interesting people: journalists, NGO workers, artists, food writers and such. We like to cook and invite guests to help out if they want. Or just grab a bottle of wine and join in the conversation.
Roma is one of the best neighborhoods in Mexico City. Frequented by artists and food-lovers, its stunning architecture is the perfect backdrop for a casual wander or a fervent search for the perfect taco place. You can't throw a rock without hitting a museum or gallery and there are enough odd little shops to keep you busy for weeks. It's also close to La Condesa, Zona Rosa, and Reforma. Striking distance to Chapultapec Park and the historical center. It's safe to walk at night, friendly, and just quirky enough to make it interesting.
For short visits there is a Metro (underground train) station, Metrobus station and and taxi stand within a short walk. For those staying longer, we highly recommend an EcoBici bike share card ($25 for a week) and we can help you get set up. It's a lovely way to get around the city. For longer trips, it's not too hard to rent a car on Reforma.
If you are an adventurous traveler or an outdoorsy person, ours is the place to stay. We'll give you the inside track on good hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, or mountaineering. We have also explored the region pretty well and can tell you about interesting towns nearby and cultural hidden gems a short bus ride away.
I had a terrific time staying with Erik and Liz. They have an excellent space in a great location, not to mention a very comfy mattress and a cute cat. They were very helpful and friendly hosts. I hope to stay here again!
Erik and Liz vance are wonderful hosts. They live in the secure and hip neighborhood of Roma near great restaurants, shops, and public transportation. The room and home is beautiful and tidy. They are very welcoming and were very kind when I got food poisoning! I recommend their spacious room to anyone.
