We arrived at the home by taxi. We were greeted by our host's son, age 30, who showed us the room and bathroom which was not private. The ad said "warm room" but when we got there, it was very cold and smelled like mold. The home was very messy and dark I then requested a heater and Martha's son put one in our room. We needed help to get it working. We left to go into town and returned to find that the room smelled even worse after being heated so much that it made us feel ill. Then I went out to ask Bruno, the son, about the internet. The hall and house was left dark and I actually stumbled and fell in the hallway. Then, found out the internet wifi only worked if I sat outside the master bedroom on a chair in the hallway. At that point, my husband and I had enough and told Bruno we didn't want to stay there and called a taxi and left. Bruno was nice and I know he felt bad. They should not be in Air Bnb. Their situation needs too much work and they are not ready. I would never go back there. Sorry.
Martha nos recibió muy bien en su bonita casa de Pátzcuaro !
Fuimos el fin de semana del día de los muertos, hemos disfrutado mucho de Pátzcuaro y de los pueblos alrededor del lago.
Martha nos dio muchos buenos consejos para visitar la zona.
Nos hemos sentido como en casa, en un ambiente muy familiar.
Staying in Martha's home in Patzcuaro was a great experience. Me and my friend felt very lucky to have stayed with and to have met Martha- In addition to being an extremely warm host, Martha is a person who I was instantly thankful to have met- a rare occasion when your host is as memorable as the trip itself. She strikes me above all as someone who lives her passions, and is integral part of the culture she lives in.
She has a lovely place just outside of Patzcuaro. For us it was perfect because we we driving and didn't want to deal with trouble of finding parking in middle of Patzcuaro. When we arrived our room was clean, with everything we needed- Wi-fi, clean towels, soap, heater (it gets cold in Michoacan). She also makes a delicious cinnamon coffee.
I would recommend staying with Martha to anyone who looks to break through the safe boundaries of the normal tourist, picture-taking, memory-making experience to something that is, well, more real.
