Completely private home with pool and gorgeous garden, the house of the Eternal Spring invites family and friends gatherings amid colorful bougainvilleas, luscious local plant varieties, in a quiet surrounding. Perfect for a long vacation get-away.

The space

The house was build by my father-in-law (RIP), who was a civil engineer, in typical Mexican colonial style, using cantera (quarry) stone ionic columns, red terracotta stone floors, and heavily fortified stone walls. The private house of the eternal spring, so-called for its luscious garden plant variety evident all year long, includes private and secure parking for two automobiles, a newly remodeled full kitchen and bathroom, three guest rooms, including a master bedroom with private bathroom, and a common area with bar.

But the heart of the home is its terrace which includes the wonderful garden and the small and tranquil unheated pool (water temperature oscillates between 73-81 Fahrenheit all year long). There is a grill in the back to cook at your heart's content. You will be in complete privacy, as the home is surrounded by high walls.

While I do not live here, my wife and I visit several times a year and thoroughly enjoy the greenery and peaceful surroundings. However, my sister-in-law, who is a long-time Cuernavaca resident, will make sure you're welcome at check in and will gladly answer any questions you may have before leaving the place to yourselves.

When here, you will truly feel as Maximilian the Emperor did, namely that spring is truly eternal.

Guest access

Guests will be welcome by my sister-in-law, Stella, an ophthalmologist by traning, who lives in Cuernavaca, and who can provide invaluable local and cultural information. She will show you the house and answer any questions you may have. After that, you will have complete and unlimited access to the home, including the private, unheated pool.

Interaction with guests

I will always be accessible online, and should anything arise that may require local intervention, my sister-in-law will provide assistance. By and large, however, we will respect your privacy and allow you to enjoy the house and the wonderful Cuernavaca weather.

Other things to note

FAQs
====

P. Por qué rentamos esta casa por airbnb?
R. A raíz del fallecimiento de mi suegro, la casa dejó de ser aprovechada como centro de reunión familiar, como lo fue por muchos años. Nos parece oportuno que ahora tú y tus seres queridos tengan la misma oportunidad de utilizar esta hermosa casa y preservar así una bella tradición de reuniones. Sería una pena no aprovechar éste extraordinario espacio de Cuernavaca.

P. Quién fue el diseñador?
R. El crédito (y críticas también) debe ser atribuido a mi suegro, un ingeniero civil de vocación. Originario de la Ciudad de México, se abocó a reconstruir esta casa tras su retiro y conforme sus cuatro hijas fueron saliendo del hogar. Fue él quien percibió un enorme potencial arquitectónico y paisajista dentro de un pequeño espacio.

P. Veo que no vives en Cuernavaca, si algo sucede durante mi estadía, quién me puede atender?
R. Es cierto que radico en Washington, DC, aunque frecuento éste maravilloso lugar varias veces al año. Sin embargo, mi cuñada, oftalmólogo de profesión, vive en Cuernavaca y te atenderá en caso de tener cualquier inconveniente o duda.

P. El jardín se ve extraordinario. Está así todo el año?
R. Sí, la verdad sí, y hasta envidia me da :-)

This is a house where my in-laws resided for many years after they move out of Mexico City. We have now decided to make it available to airbnb guests, and we are rather flexible with house rules. However, as we wish to have many guests for years to come, we must outline a few simple rules:

1. Smoking is only allowed outside.
2. Dogs are allowed, but please clean after them.
3. While this is a private residence, we request that you keep noise to a minimum after midnight, specially on weekdays. Common courtesy goes a long with with the neighbors.
4. We recommend that you lock the door every time you step out of the house, even if it's for just a few minutes.
5. We kindly request that you treat the home with the same love and care as you would your own home. Remember, this is still somebody's place once you leave.

We loved having an entire, private home to ourselves. The location afforded us nice, long walks, which we took every day. The check in and check out was perfectly handled and helped to make our stay stress free and most relaxing. The house was very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed to make a home away from home. We would definitely stay again on our next trip to Cuernavaca.

Communication between us was great from the moment of pre booking. Thru the stay I commented and asked questions and they were always answered. We were late due to traffic and they waited for us. This is someone's house so you'll find everything from photos and sculptures, the place is just amazing, it's like visiting a home for the weekend you don't feel like you're a rental. The gardens the pool and all linens are washed and everything was super clean. All the utilities work, the house has 2 boilers so hot water is guaranteed, water supply and everything worked fine for all 4 guests. Having a dishwasher made it easy to conserve and be environment friendly. I would return anytime. Also there's 3 parking spaces so 3 cars fit perfectly. Amazing place.

Response from Rodrigo:
Thank you for your kind words, Luigi, and for providing invaluable feedback. We have already corrected most of them, and we hope to always be improving the home based on suggestions such as yours. Thank you for taking the time and we hope to see you and your partner again soon.

Rodrigo y Stella son excelentes anfitriones, resolvieron nuestras dudas desde antes de reservar y siempre estuvieron al pendiente. La casa era lo que prometía en la descripción y las fotos. Una vez en ella no tuvimos ningún inconveniente. Sin dudarlo regresaríamos.

I'm originally from Mexico. I went to school on the West Coast (Stanford University) and then to post graduate school in Washington, DC and Milan Italy. I now live in DC and work in the high tech industry.

My wife works for an international environmental non-profit, and we have owned our current home since 2003. We are both ecologically conscious and easy-going.

We have two small dogs, a wonderful Cavalier King Charles and a tiny and playful Bichon Frisè who ARE members of the family.

In addition to being proud hosts (and I personally reply to each and every request), we also enjoy being airbnb guests whenever we travel. And we do all this because we enjoy meeting new and interesting folks. We therefore look forward to getting to know you as well.
