Lovely San Cristobal de las Casa
About the Owner
I fell in love with San Cristobal many years ago and finally decided that this was the place I wanted to move to and spend my years. I currently work in Los Angeles and love my work, which is the only reason I'm not down there now. So I try and split my time in both places and make my home available for guests when I'm not there.
Guestbook comments from the manager
5 of 5 starsReviewed March 6, 2015
Everything I'd like to say has been said in previous reviews. Location is terrific: all major attractions within walking distance, ditto for very good restaurants. Street is quiet; garden, with an abundance of flowering plants, humming birds, even more so. As with many San Cris houses, the colonial house front is unassuming, making the delightful interior even more beguiling. We loved the variety of local crafts, obviously lovingly collected over the years - we noticed something new everyday (we were there for three weeks). The kitchen is a dream to work in, extremely well stocked, and since there is an enormous local market nearby, we cooked quite a bit. Evenings were fairly cold when we were there - we made good use of the living room chimenea, which worked flawlessly.
Teresa, the property manager, addressed every question that we had immediately and with great charm - we can't thank her enough. Our local birding guide, Alberto, was a real find, taking us to places that we would never have found on our own.
Stuck in Houston, waiting for a rescheduled flight home, but still dreaming of the jasmine cascading down the garden wall. An outstanding value.

Lovely San Cristobal de las Casa
Happy Early Spring Abode in San Cristobal
Sherry thought of everything in terms of making it easy to settle in-Internet Wi-FI no problem to set up at all, all the cooking utensils we needed, good advice in the "house book" on places around town.
Beautiful Home, Great Location and Value
Our stay was really great, and Sherry and her friends in San Cristobal were friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend Sherry's casa and will stay again in the future.
Lovely San Cristobal Casa
Oasis in San Cristobal
...and for all the peace and quiet, it could not be more central. A block away is everyone's favorite breakfast spot, the Casa de Pan. Two blocks away and you reach the Real de Guadelupe in one direction and the Cathedral in the other. A bit further and you are at the Na Bolom Museum or the massive, colorful, indoor/outdoor Market, our favorite place to food shop.
In short, a wonderful retreat made better by the owner's thought and concern for your well being. The house exudes Sherry's warmth and generosity and she was always reachable when needed.
Review San Cristobal
The property was clean and we received assistance with transportation from the Tuxtla Airport and a hotel was reserved for us the first night. I would recommend this hotel even though I'd rather keep it a secret only for myself.
We enjoyed our visits to San Juan Chamula, Palenque, Agua Azul, Misol Ha, Oventik and Sumadero Canyon. I would recommend eating chateaubriand at Los Maguays and Tierra al Dente for Mexican. Pass on La Paloma. Tours from Alex and Raul leave at 9:30 AM from the cross in front of the Cathedral. Ask for Caesar...he is the best!

Activity and Interests
The Casa is set up as a home away from home, both for myself and the enjoyment of my guests. We're located in the historic district of town on Calle Dr. Navarro in the Barrio El Cerrillo ,2 blocks from the church of Santo Domingo and a 5 minute walk to the zocalo and main mercado. I was off this site for awhile during my construction so there is time-lapse for reviews here, more recent reviews listed on other sites!:-)
