Welcome home all lovers of peace and quiet, art and nature! Our four rental apartments are set around a lush botanical garden tucked away on a historic, narrow cobblestone street just three blocks from the Artisan&Indigenous markets.
We are two artists and a baby. We are passionate about traveling and sharing our art and love of culture with the world. Since I was a child my parents and grandparents instilled in me a great curiosity for the world unknown, I have spent time in France, Spain, and Japan, I am originally from the East Coast and all my family is from the midwest. We love the mountains here and the people. I fell in love with Mexico the first time I came in 2008 and been calling this place my home ever since. We like to travel as a living experience, we like to be able to really spend some time and get lost, we like to walk and take the bus and metro wherever we haven't yet been and somedays we end up at the end of the line eating diner with the driver and his family at the top of a tiny mountain at sunset. Mexico has a strange magic, it is a surreal combination of the romantic past colliding with the desperate and chaotic future, it is filled with smells and colors and beauty under all the grime, it is raw and fragile and seems to sweep people up. I was once walking from village to village in the mountains of Oaxaca, and after about two hours of solitude I came upon a blind man sitting under an ancient stone fountain and I still wonder about him. He must have known those intricate pathways through the forest since he was a little boy. We have a great love of this land and appreciation of the kindness of heart of its people. We know what it is to feel like your in a home not a hotel, and we have made sure to make our house feel like home.
**We are currently traveling! We have entrusted our house and our guests to a local wife and husband team Lupe & Neri. They have been nothing but a godsend...all of our guests have appreciated their patience, kindness and warmth. Please do note that our house is a community of travelers and renters, not a bed&breakfast. Thus, the experience of staying at our house is best suited towards independent movers and shakers, many who return time and again:)***
