Fantastic home in San Cristobal
Casa Azul is a gem and a real home away from home. Many AirBnB or VRBO lodgings turn out to be less than advertised, but this is definitely not one of them. The house is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use (we cooked most of the week we were there) and the house was spacious for our party of three adults. The garden is also lovely, though when we were there in January it was a bit chilly to sit outside much of the time. (The wood stove in the living room is a necessary and comforting feature.) The washer and dryer are extremely helpful too, and the check in and was seamless. Helga (a friend of the owner, Susan) made herself available to answer questions and was very thoughtful. The location is perfect too, in an old, quiet neighborhood just ten minutes walk north of the center, near the market and away from the tourist hubbub. We walked around at all hours and felt completely safe and secure. The only minor criticism is that the lighting in the living room is quite dim, fine for sitting but a bit too dark for reading (bring a reading light). But that’s a small point. Casa Azul is a real find and we can’t recommend it enough. Thank you, Susan and Helga!
Thank you Brent!!
Couldn't be better
A darling house in a convenient and quiet neighborhood. A kitchen equipped with high-end utensils, quality beds, bedding, towels, simply everything. A beautiful garden visible from every room. Pleasant cleaning, gardening, and management staff. Scores of decor features to feast on. Simply, perfectly comfortable. Not one problem.
Great stay. Great town
My wife and I spent 2 weeks at this VRBO on August. The place was very nice and the location was great. San Cristobal is always a walking town, but this location was especially nice because it was a little farther way from the main hub-bub. That was nice. There was one small inconvenience when we arrived. Helga, who is apparently the main project manager was out of town...she let us know this before we arrived so this did not come as a surprised...left the initial introduction to her assistant. Unfortunately this assistant spoke very little english so it made it a little difficult in certain respects for a poor spanish speaker like myself. However, when we did have a problem (shower water was spraying too much) I sent an email to Helga and Susan (the owner) and they fixed it within 24 hours. Their responsiveness was GREAT.
Other than the small bumpy beginning (mentioned above), my wife and I thought the casita was perfect for our stay. And San Cristobal is a place that we will definitely go back to.
Thank you Donn.
Perfect home away from home.
My husband and I are very pleased we stayed in Casa Azul in San Cristobal de las Casas for 2 months. Everything is perfect about this house, the location, the architectural details, the layout, the light, the decor, the plenty of lightning, the beautiful and quite garden, the kitchen well stocked with gadgets and the service the employees provided. It's a house well thought and one of the best homes we have ever stayed in. Thanks so much to Susan the owner, Helga the manager, Clara the housemaid and Martin and Marcelino the gardeners who kept the house spotless and everything working smoothly. If we return to San Cristobal de las Casas we will stay here in a heart beat!
Thank you Adriana, everyone loved you.
A lovely house and garden in a very good location.
There was a need for some maintenance i. e the shower was good but needed a longer curtain as the whole room got wet. I was not over impressed with some of the cleaning but this may have been because it was Christmas. And there is a cockerel next door if you are a light sleeper. The garden is sunny and well maintained with some friendly cats. Kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms were large and beds were comfortable.
Beautiful Peaceful House and Garden
The house is beautifully decorated with Mexican arts and crafts, full of color and very welcoming. Everything a traveler could possibly need is there in the house - a comfortable relaxing living room, large table in the dining room and a kitchen fully equipped for any kind of cooking or baking. Up three stairs from the kitchen and dining room is a bathroom and large bedroom with a queen bed and door leading to the garden. And up another flight of stairs are second and third bedrooms (one with a queen and the other with two single beds) and a second bathroom. The dining room walls are all windows with beautiful views of the garden, which is full of flowers and hummingbirds. Once a week a gardener comes to tend the plants and lawn, and a cleaning person also comes to take care of the house. There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. And if you're there in the cooler months, you can make fires in the wood stove in the living room. Cut wood was always available in the house and the fires heated the whole living and dining room area. The house is located in a residential neighborhood two blocks from a church and plaza, four blocks from the crafts market, and six blocks from the main walking street full of shops and restaurants. There are also convenience stores and restaurants within a couple blocks of the house as well as the gigantic central outdoor food market. We had a wonderful stay there and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on our next trip to San Cristobal.
San Cristobal and the surrounding towns are beautiful and rich in people, culture and history.
