This is a follow-up to my one-word review of "wonderful," because I had some technical difficulties with this website's "feedback" process.

I love the Villas of Bellavista; in late 2012, I stayed for one week in one of the 1-bedroom bungalows at this 8-bungalow complex. In late 2013, I returned for a 5-week stay in Azteca, the 2-bedroom bungalow. That alone should tell you that I found the place to be excellent - cozy, comfy, authentic 1940s bungalows around a pool. The complex is surrounded by safety walls and gates that are always locked - I felt very safe here, even though, on this trip, I happened to be travelling solo. I also felt very safe in the general neighborhood and did not hesitate to walk around alone - even after dark. (But don't be foolish - stick to well-lit areas.)

The Villas are close to all sorts of conveniences (stores, markets, restaurants, etc). It's a safe and easy walk to a major avenue with public buses running every few minutes all day long. Downtown is an easy 10-15 minute bus ride (well, with the occasional grid-lock when you actually get within a few blocks of the Zocalo - best to hop off and walk the last 2-3 blocks...) There is always something going on downtown! The general location of the Villas in the Bellavista neighborhood of Cuernavaca is also a very convenient "jumping-off" place to visit other nearby areas - e.g., Tepotzlan, a wonderful village about 12-15 miles north-east of Cuernavaca.

The hosts here are the best - "children of the Sixties," my all-time favorite generation. Two very special people who are now joined by their daughter in running the business that the host's father started in the 1940s. This place is not a gaudy tourist trap, there are no nearby beaches filled with annoying tourists; other than some pretty decent modern appliances in the fully-equipped kitchens, there's nothing "modern" or "cookie-cutter" about it - just cozy, comfy, and down-to-earth; my home away from home in a very "real" section of Cuernavaca.
