The casita is exactly as represented and Leslie walked us through all the pertinent info over the phone. So even though she wasn't around, her communication was great. The location is great too. The San Antonio area is removed enough to be quiet and yet only 10-15 min walk to The Jardin and Juarez Park. Orizaba is also a good transportation route within the city, so catching a cab or bus is easy. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large stove and a large cold fridge, so cooking, if you're into it, is great; though some sharp knives would be appreciated. The top floor with its deck, french doors and skylight is a wonderful perch to hang out in The only real negative was that the top floor roof leaks during heavy rains. An unusual 2 day deluge, had us setting out pots and pans to catch the drips which otherwise would have dripped onto the bed. But from all accounts, this was a very unusual storm, and the gas heaters were a God-send! Internet was solid and speedy too.
We got a good orientation from Leslie's assistant, and the place was just as described/ shown in photos. During our stay, the water heater died and Leslie was responsive- it got replaced as soon as stores were open (its demise was on a weekend). We needed a fireplace pilot lit (we got a cold snap during our stay) and that was done quickly.
Leslie was prompt in returning calls about any questions I had and I appreciated that.The casita was pleasant and comfortable and the location was convenient in terms of getting into the heart of the city. The access to Wi Fi was excellent and this was important to me. I would rent this casita again and recommend it to others.
Leslie responded quickly and thoughtfully to emails. I didn't get to meet her, but her helper gave a me thorough orientation to the house. House was clean. Great location for getting around on foot. House is as shown in pictures- very pretty. It was unseasonably cool during my visit and the house was a bit chilly, especially down stairs. It is very vertical so consider that you must be comfortable with stairs.
