Have an authentic Mexican Experience in the home and studio of an author/illustrator of children's books. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets).
We have been staying in this magical house for six weeks now. The house is on a privada, a cul-de-sac, in Colonia San Rafael, which means you're living among the Mexican population (who will greet you cordially every time they see you on the street). Taxis can be summoned to the door or often just met on the street.
We've been staying in the downstairs quarters, just off the exuberantly planted courtyard that greets you as you pass through the blue door at the end of a private passageway. We have a comfortable king-size bed and lots of storage space with a private bathroom with shower just next door. There are amazing things to look at everywhere, from the tile work to the garden sculptures to the handmade privacy wall of wine bottles on one of the upstairs terraces.
Breakfast is delectable vegetarian, and the host is not only amusing but full of ideas: where to go and what to do and what not to miss.. The WIFI is perfect, the extensive collection of CDs and DVDs will keep you entertained, and you'll have a uniquely untouristy experience with all the mod cons you could wish for.
