"An excellent home to stay in. The location is PERFECT, short walk to centro and many restaurants. Taxis easy to find. Upstairs: Living Rm, Master BR w/Bath, Walk-in closet, BR #4 (shares closet/bath). Downstairs: BR #2 and BR #3, each w/Bath, Kitchen, Dining, 1/2 Bath. Garden (and outdoor jacuzzi) accessible from downstairs hall. Rooftop terrace accessible by staircase from upstairs living room. Incredible views from Master BR, Living Rm, and Terrace. Housekeeper was incredibly nice and helpful with laundry and cleaning up after us and keeping us stocked with water. Very conveniently located, since we had a group of 5, it was easy to walk to centro (downhill) than try to get 2 taxis each time.
I must include a few caveats. First, the VRBO location is not accurate, while the home is in centro, it is further east than the map shows, approx. 0.6km (0.4mi) walk to Centro Jardin. However, this is still very close and much closer than most VRBO homes in the area. Second, the portion of the road in front of this home is very steep, could be quite difficult to walk on for older persons. However, it is only a short stretch of roadway, the rest of downtown is less steep. Also, the home has lots of stairs, which is understandable. The living room is on the upper floor, the dining and kitchen on the lower floor. Lastly, the outdoor tub is heated by a plastic blanket that must be kept on the tub water during the night to keep the heat in and the solar rays heat the water during the daylight, the temperature was around 95deg F the night we swam in it. The jacuzzi portion worked fine, but keep in mind it is not solar-powered heat, it is solar heated (with the plastic blanket). BR #3 (closest to front door) may be hard to sleep in due to road noise during the night. The roadway (one-way) in front of this home is well traveled by vehicles, not a quiet street related to traffic. Even with these items, this place was perfect for our group of 5.
We loved this place, it is very cozy and authentic and warm and lots of natural light."
