Comfort and Convenience in Centro Historico

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking to experience the real Mazatlan, we highly recommend Jeff’s house in Centro Historico. Situated on Calle Pedregoso, the house is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. With two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a well equipped kitchen, UV filtered water system, and onsite laundry facilities, living in “Maz” becomes easy.

Eduardo, the house manager, is excellent; very helpful, tending to any issues that arise very quickly and without fail.

The biggest plus for this house is its location; everything one could want is within an easy 15 minute walk. You can enjoy the Plazuela Machado with its restaurants and the Angela Peralta Theatre (seven minutes), the beach at Olas Altas and the malecon (five minutes), and the main shopping market, Mercardo Pino Suarez (15 minutes). For places farther afield the bus system is inexpensive and easy to use.

Music abounds in Historico and particularly at the Machado. Whether it’s jazz at Bohemia on Tuesdays, or bands in the bandshell on weekend evenings, a person can always find some entertainment. For us, nothing beats an evening cocktail at Tramoya watching the world go by - the perfect end to the day.

All in all, we can’t say enough good things about Jeff’s house, its location, and Mazatlan. We’ll be back.

Beautifully restored home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house has absolutely everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable visit to Mazatlán's cultural center. It is located several blocks from the major plazas, market, and boardwalk. We especially found the abarrotes Hidalgo, just a half a block down the hill, to be quite convenient and friendly. Not only would we recommend this property to a friend, we hope to return soon ourselves and enjoy the roof-top vistas for another extended visit!

Comfort in Centro HIstorico

  • 5 of 5

This attractive house has all the amenities one could wish, including pressurized potable tap water. Everything was extremely clean and in working order. The owner and manager provided excellent service. There were abundant supplies of linens, tissues, and soaps. Everything in the historic center is within easy walking distance: the malecon, plazuela, the mercado, museums, excellent and inexpensive yoga classes at El Recreo, and abundant, reasonably-priced restaurant choices. Allegro became a daily habit for us for both coffee drinks and light meals. I was a little concerned about walking up the hill but found it very easy.

Fabulous house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Jeff's photos are nice, but they don't do the place justice - it's a fantastic house! It's roomy, comfortable, nicely decorated, and has all your modern conveniences. The second floor bedroom balcony and the rooftop deck offer great views of the city. And on top of all that, the location is terrific. Pedregoso is a fun street and neighborhood, in and of itself. The Super Hidalgo tienda is about a block to the east, the plazuela with the library is just beyond that, and about three block farther on you've got the Plazuela Machado, which is a great place to hang out. We spent a lot of time there, eating, drinking and watching the quinceañera parties. Then to the west, the Olas Altas beach and malecon are only about three blocks away. Everything in the beautiful Centro Historico is an easy walk away, including the Mercado and the Cathedral, but if you go to Paseo Olas Altas you can catch a pulmonia, taxi, or camioneta that will take you anywhere you want to go in Mazatlán.

Gloria was wonderful, she waited patiently as we made our way into town from the airport, and arrived promptly to check us out. If we ever make it back to Mazatlán, and I certainly hope we do, Pedregoso #2 will be our #1 choice for a place to stay!

Home away from home.......

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home the minute we walked in the house. Great location, close to beach and center of town. Everything described in the house was accurate. Jeff was excellent to deal with, return all mails and deposit promptly. Loved Esther the housekeeper. Our only complaint was that we only had two weeks to spend there. Would love to come back.

Amazing Month!

  • 5 of 5

This house was really wonderful. It is perfectly located and we enjoyed every day there. It was exactly as described. Gloria was there to meet us and gave us a tour of the property. She answered our questions and offered suggestions as to where we should go and what we might like to do. Fortunately, we were there during Carnival and OH MY! We were a block and a half from all the activities BUT heard very little noise at our house. We watched the fireworks from the Old Mazatlan Inn which were amazing! Thanks to O"Neil for the gracious invite. On fat Tuesday we went to the Shrimp Bucket and got an outdoor table and watched the parade up close and comfortable. I highly recommend Mazatlan, especially the historical part. You can't find a better house to rent than Jeff's. PS We were there for a month and walked the streets day and night and always felt comfortable. All the people we met, both native and visitors, were extremely helpful and very nice. Our favorite restaurants were the Shrimp Bucket, Puerto Azul, Panera, El Faro, and Terrazo. Don't miss going to Stone Island but do it on you own by taking the water taxi over and back. You can either walk to the water taxi or take a Pulmonia for a nominal fee. Busses are also available and very easy to navigate. I would definately recommend this property to anyone desiring a true Mazatlan experience.
