¡Bienvenidos a Casa Sol y Luna!

Our home is ideal for the seasoned traveler who prefers the comforts of home combined with the uniqueness of a true Mexican experience.

Our house is in the middle of a beautiful lush garden filled with various fruit trees and an abundance of flowers. This spacious one-story house has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a newly restored and fully equipped kitchen, two dinning rooms, a spacious living room, and a sun room where you can enjoy the garden from the inside. Adjoining the master bedroom is a small Zen Garden where you can start your day listing to the chirping birds with a nice coup of coffee. You'll relish the beauty of our zen modernist decor that is stylish and comfortable.

We are an environmentally friendly property. We have a small pool that we've converted into an ecological cistern. We compost all organic material and recycle. Due to all the trees in our home, we have a nice microclimate inside the house so it's always at a perfect temperature without the need of heating or air conditioner. We have dimmers in every lamp in the house so you use only the light you need and are able to adjust the lighting for reading or a romantic evening.

This extraordinary house offers great interior and exterior places for working, playing, entertaining, and meditating. You will have an unforgettable experience at Casa Sol y Luna!

About The Owner

My sister and I are professionals in the wellness & travel industry. We love to travel together and learn different languages, try different cuisines, meet new people, discover new places, and enjoy other cultures.

In our travels we love to cook and relax, therefore, we usually rent a house or an apartment so we can enjoy the unique amenities of our rentals. This has made an enormous difference in the quality and cost of our travel experience. Since this is not our primary residence, we decided to share our house with other fellow travelers so they can enjoy our magical home and have a more pleasant experience while traveling in Mexico.

The Owner purchased this house in 1970

Why The Owner chose Cuernavaca

Known as “The City of the Eternal Spring”, Cuernavaca is blessed with warm weather year-around (80s F). Its landscapes are filled with colors and fragrances which come from to the flowering of bugambilias, jacarandas, African tulips, lilies, jasmine, tabachines and daisies. It’s a chosen destination for many due to its proximity to Mexico City, Taxco, Tepoztlan and the impressive archeological site of Xochicalco. No wonder it has been adopted as an amusement and relaxation location for those who have known it, from Aztec emperors, to Spanish conquerors to French princes, to explorers, artists and retirees. Beautiful plazas, colonial buildings, haciendas, and artists residences tell of a rich history and of a magical city.

This property was originally owned by our grandparents but In the past few years we’ve remodeled it to make it more modern & ecological. We’ve enjoyed renovating and redecorating it. We like playing with the décor and adding new elements that make it more fun and comfortable. We’re constantly planting new trees and plants and improving the landscape of the garden.

What makes this house unique

There are many nooks in the garden where you can enjoy your morning coffee, a midday Margarita, an afternoon tea, have breakfast, lunch or dinner, do yoga, meditate, listen to the birds chirping, read a good book, have a romantic evening or just simply relax in a hammock.

This house is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle and a perfect place to enjoy all the wonderful natural and historical sites this city and state have to offer since we are very close to most historic & cultural sites. We’re walking distance to some wonderful restaurants and language schools. We’re minutes away from the downtown, incredible haciendas, and shopping malls.

Our trustworthy housekeeper has been with us for over 40 years and lives next door. She can provide you with helpful guidance and information about Cuernavaca. You can also practice your Spanish with her and learn how to cook authentic Mexican food. She’s a wonderful cook and for a small fee can also cook for you.

Charming and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This house is situated in a lovely garden. It is very comfortable with all needed amenities. Juana is a guardian onsite who is there to ensure everything runs smoothly. She is a stellar asset but does not interefere with the privacy of guests. We have stayed here several times and look forward to returning annually. The weather in Cuernavaca is always wonderful and it's billed as the city of eternal spring. The house is located in a neighborhood accessible to many restaurants, a nearby grocery and the ever present taxis to take you throughout the city. This property is very special and highly recommended.

Much more than what we expected

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sol y Luna in Cuernavaca is very clean, comfortable and decorated with taste. It has a big, beautiful garden that is well looked after. Thought has been put into welcoming guests and information has been made available.A lot of thought has been put into preparing the house for ghests. A walkable distance from the downtown area and the market but there are also frequent buses right at the door or taxis readily available. Cultural activities are often offered at the Ocampo Theater or at the Jardin Borda near the zocalo. We felt extremely secure in this spacious, comfortable house and the housekeeper also cooked for us at times for a small fee, she is a wonderful cook, very experienced in welcoming guests and readily available to help with transport reservations. Her knowledge of Cuernavaca is extensive. We stayed for 2 months and hope to go back again.

Tranquil, Comfortable and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This property has the trifecta. The beautiful garden surrounding the house ensures a quiet and stunning respite from the energy of Cuernavaca. The tastefully decorated house with lovely Asian accents combines with all the creature comforts for a wonderful stay. Taxies are always readily available and very reasonable. There are great restaurants nearby like Gusto and Barini. A botanic gardens is only a couple of blocks away and offers a great place to stroll. Juana is so gracious and helpful with suggestions and tourist advice and ensures everything is fresh and clean upon arrival. In addition to sites and museums in Cuernavaca, Greyhound-like buses can take you to nearby Puebla, Taxco or Tepotzlan for very few dollars. We always feel safe and everyone is so friendly. We are already confirmed to return in 2016. This Casa is a gem!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights Sept 2014. Juanita who manages the property is an excellent host. There is lots off street parking and security never an issue. House is updated, modern, immaculate and private. Property is beautiful and is ~ .5 hectare. Price is very reasonable. Centro is a short taxi ride or a 17 minute walk. Definitely, we will return.

Heaven in Cuernavaca!

  • 5 of 5

We are already scheming to get back to this exquisite place. The house is perfect, the kitchen modern and congenial for the home cooking we love to do (fresh squeezed OJ, anyone?), and the garden...how can we say enough about the cascades of blooming flowers, the flowering trees, the dawn views of Popocatepetl?

All this and a 15-minute walk to the Centro. There is also a little market that lovely & congenial Juana, the caretaker and hostess during our stay, pointed out about 100 yards from the front gate. Local salsas, tortillas, vegetables, all practically at your doorstep. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance, and when the business of dynamic Cuernavaca takes its toll, you have this oasis of calm and loveliness to retreat to.

Map

Car: not necessary

We are located in the heart of Cuernavaca very close to the down town area and nearby most historical and cultural sites yet removed from the chaos of the center of town. Our house is conveniently located in a lush beautiful garden where you can enjoy some peace but in a matter of minutes arrive to the different touristic attractions in Morelos.

There are several delightful restaurants with beautiful gardens with outside-seating a block from the house. The botanical garden is three blocks from the house as well as an ecological park.

Our location is excellent for adults seeking to improve or perfect their Spanish language skills since there are two excellent language schools walking distance from our house (Encuentros & Experiencia).
