"We enjoyed our 2-week stay at Casa Amelia very much. The neighbors/caretakers gave us helpful tips (including attending a 10 am mass on Sunday at Santa Domingo, just around the corner - one of the most spectacular settings for a church service we have experienced). We enjoyed walking to everything and taking a different route home each time. Our girls (6 and 10) had a terrific experience studying for a week at the Spanish school Don Pedro Alvarado. Internet in the house was reliable/fast enough for me to work on my laptop when needed. Cooking was a pleasure in the fully equipped kitchen - we cooked a full thanksgiving feast. Our only issue during the stay was that during our second night in the house (a Thursday), there was a long series of explosions in the streets just outside. It really put us on edge, until we leaned from the neighbor in the morning that they had just been fireworks, probably related to multiple weddings (although what was odd was that it was completely silent except for the fireworks...). In fact, we heard fireworks on most of the remaining nights we were there - so in the hopes of saving others worry, we wanted to mention it. Once we knew what it was, it just added to the ambiance. Thanks for a terrific vacation!"
