Casa Modo, conveniently located just a 5-7 minute walk to El Jardin, is an elegant Mexicana Modern-style house with an incredible view of the historical town center and the surrounding landscape. The casa is located at the top of Montes de Oca, a beautiful cobblestone residential street in Centro where many guide books advocate as the best view point for photographs. There are many fine restaurants within a 10-minute walk and several small stores close by that offer the essentials.
Totaling 5,000 sq. ft, Casa Modo is a stone mansion typically found in the colonial town and it has been newly renovated and redesigned. While maintaining a strong Maxicana identity, classic vintages modern pieces and antique Asian textiles are blended in to create an artistic, eclectic and luxurious interior.
From the cobblestone street, you enter into a striking high foyer. Just off the foyer is a 1 car garage and a large 1/2 bath. Continuing into the house, you enter a pillared patio and a large flower-filled courtyard with two seating areas. Surrounding the courtyard are the main common rooms: A formal dining room featuring a large marble dining table with comfortable seating for 6; a beautiful Mexican tiled cook's kitchen featuring spacious countertops, a commercial 6 burner stove, and a Subzero refrigerator; and a spectacular 2-story living room with a huge stone fireplace, a sectional sofa and a large flat screen TV with a DVD player. There is a sound system that provides music throughout the casa. Off the living room is an intimate garden with a lovely fountain.
A formal stairway leads to the 2nd floor living room. This wonderful space provides an intimate reading area with its own fireplace and an office with a bookshelf and a double desk equipped with a computer and printer. Two glass doors flanking the fireplace offer an easy view of the town.
To the right, is a spectacular Master bedroom suite. The focal point of the bedroom is a large four posted king-bed with marble nightstands. The suite has two large doors that look out to the city with a direct view of the Parroquia. There is lovely fireplace to take the chill off the cool nights and an A/C should it get too warm during the day. A flat screen TV offers entertainment. Off the bedroom, there is a large walk-in closet / dressing room that opens to a spacious master bathroom with double sinks, shower and a huge soaking tub.
Across the living room is a separate wing of two bedrooms with ensuite baths. The first bedroom has a queen bed, a desk, fireplace, and a large armoire. The bathroom has an oversized soaking tub, shower and separate sink. The second smaller but very romantic bedroom was furnished with antique art deco pieces. It has a queen bed, large dresser, and a fireplace. The generously sized bath has a large shower stall. This wing has its own stairs down to the main floor.
A staircase leads up to our large roof deck with three terraces. It offers perhaps one of the most spectacular panoramic views of the city. There are separate areas for dining, lounging, and socializing and it is surrounded by plants and trees. Three large umbrellas provide shade from the sun. This is the place to relax on comfortable chaises after a day in town, then join friends in the seating area for drinks before sitting down to dinner as with the sunset as the background. On festival nights, of which there are many in town, the firework viewing on the deck will be one of the most unforgettable experiences of your stay.
Casa Modo is designed to provide rooms for both intimate privacy as well as social interaction and entertaining. It is well equipped to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
