Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Polly and her sister were gracious and helped us get oriented upon arrival. Loved the space! It had everything we needed and more. My favorite was the unforgettable balcony view and perfect location. So happy we chose to stay there!

  • We found Polly's "Hidden Gem" to be just that. This apartment is clean, comfortable and perfectly located to enjoy all that SMA has to offer. Inside an artists house, the apartment is tastefully decorated with a full well appointed kitchen. We enjoyed watching the sunset ove the city from the lovely little terrace before enjoying our evenings in the square. There are many delights to experience here, and all withing walkin distance. Right downtown and quiet too; a rare combo in most Mexican cities. We will stay again next time we're in the area. LeeAnn and Mike.

  • We had a wonderful two weeks in Polly's apartment. The best part of course is the location, which is just blocks from the jardin. Polly and her sister, CC couldn't have been more helpful. When the water heater went on the blink, they were there in twenty minutes to fix it.

    The apartment is clean and comfortable. There is a patio on the same level with a wonderful view to the west side of the city. A very special apartment in a magical city.
