traveler reviews for this patzcuaro cottage rental

Vacation at Eclipse House

Review submitted: January 15, 2012   Date of arrival: December 10, 2011

Eclipse House was very comfortable. The home was well stocked for cooking, the view was amazing and the large patio was lovely to enjoy the local wildlife and lake view. The bedrooms were nice, an excellent bathroom. The location was a bit isolated, but no problem if you have a car rental.

The property was kept clean, well maintained and the property manager was most helpful.

Owner provided excellent customer service and information given was accurate, except for the internet service that was expensive to use with an air card. The local town had 3 public internet places for 5-10 pesos per hour.
Owner will be installing laundry facilities which will be very nice.

Pull out couch worked well, so house could sleep 6 comfortably.

Attractions: ruins & market in Tzinztunztin, Patzuaro: (20 minutes away by vehicle) market (excellent), plaza shops were great, Once Patios, Cathedral - all worth seeing. Janitizo Island - excellent (20 minute boat ride from Patzuaro embarcadaro) had great shoppings and view from the top of the hill in the statue. Quirgo - nice town with good shopping and plaza. Morelia (1 hour) excellent cathedral, plaza and aquaduct.
Santa Clara del Cobre - wonderful copperwares, well worth seeing. (45 minutes)

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sight seeing

Owners response: The house has cable TV and internet connection. Reviewer is correct regarding internet: if the user is connecting a laptop to the internet, the user will have to purchase air time cards, as the cost to provide broadband is prohibitive. Hotels and motels can justify the monthly cost as this is spread over several guests in a month, whereas Eclipse House will have only one tenant at a time for a short duration, 1-4 weeks. The towns have an abundance of cyber cafes that offer broadband for a nominal fee (typically $5 pesos, about 40 cents USD for a few minutes checking your e-mail. For a long-term stay, broadband can be provided at an additional cost. Eclipse House anticipates providing laundry facilities in-house in late Fall to Winter of 2012 after an addition to the house is built. For now, several Laundromats and laundry services are available in nearby Patzcuaro to meet the guests’ needs.

A piece of Paradise, far from the maddening crowd…

Review submitted: December 13, 2011   Date of arrival: October 17, 2011

Located at the western edge of town (Tzintzuntzan, Michoacan del Campo) just after the paved road becomes dirt, this delightful two-story house sits on the hillside, surrounded by cornfields and pastures.
The huge terrace, overlooking the north end of Lake Pátzcuaro with an ever-changing view of the mountains, instills peace and tranquility. The house is equiped with everything one could possible need: from bed & bath linens, to a fully equipped kitchen with pots & pans, plates, bowls, cups, coffee maker, etc (even a TV, which I never turned on once in the month that I was there. The radio was enough of a connection, with good stations.)
Ideal for a retreat get-away, especially if you have a project that needs attention, focus, and few distractions (such as a writing project). The property is surrounded by stunning views, which would inspire any artist or naturalist (with an abundance of birds from dawn to dusk, and butterflies, so binoculars really are a must). Although out of the way (which in my book is not a bad thing), it is just a short walk into town, and, if need be, the bustling cities of Quiroga and Pátzcuaro are within a half hour-45 minute drive. The big city of Morelia is about a two hour drive. Eclipse House is perfectly situated for day trips around the lake, and to spots further beyond.
For two people it was just right, but four would be comfortable, I'm sure. I don’t think that there is a better shower in all of Mexico! I definately am considering returning - as soon as possible.
I could not imagine not having a car, for freedom & convenience sake (driving is more laid-back around the lake then in most parts of Mexico), and since the flights usually arrive late and depart early, one can be rented for a modest amount at the airport (and the Morelia Airport Hotel is a stones throw from the terminals, with an exceptionally amiable staff, and good restaurant - Mr Muu – which makes coming & going quite simple).
People seem to be overly concerned and afraid of the dangers that they read about in Mexico in the papers or hear on the news. Not once in a month’s time was I ever concerned for my safety or well being. The food is delicious, the people are kind, the history, culture and celebrations in this part of the country are amazing,
The owners of Eclipse House have been very generous in making this spot available and giving people the opportunity to explore this area of Michoacan.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, sight seeing

Owners response: This guests' review pretty well sums up the reason we purchased this property in the first place, as a vacation home and, eventually, a retirement home. After years having the cottage shuttered while we were away, my realtor persuaded me to turn it into a vacation home for others to enjoy this beautiful site. Following her advise, the writer of this review is my first guest and I am grateful for the time he took to write and post his thoughtful review. I hope others, anxious to find a place where they can rest, relax and leave their cares behind will follow this first guest's example and come to this beautiful part of Mexico. Eclipse House will be here to be your home away from home.
Sincerely,
Your host, Joe Lazaro
