We stayed here for 1 month. Everything about it was perfect. Honestly, there was nothing that could be improved. The location was great for us and allowed us to feel part of the neighborhood. Within 2 blocks there is the market, a spa, a juice stand and restaurants. We walke…

It's a pleasure to host thoughtful, adventurous travelers who read up, ask questions and hit the ground running like locals! Thank you! I hope you two and family can circle back soon! Just opened too...a French Patisserie steps from the casa serving artisan pastries, cafe fare and breakfast! Also note electricity use was even lower at $76usd for the month. What are you waiting for...c'mon down!

The house was fantastic! Walking distance to everything and very safe neighborhood. We walked every night to the Cathedral squares to attend fiestas. There were amazing restaurants within walking distance also. The house was clean and beautiful and the street noise was muffl…

Great house. It looks just like the pictures if not better. The rooftop is wonderful, the tiles and cleanliness are immaculate. Beautiful waterfall out back. This place is a step above other places I've stayed, and I've stayed in quite a few. They even allowed us to drop off o…

Casa La Barenda is located in the Historic Centro walkable to all the favorite plaza's with plenty to see and do along the way. Of course humidity and Mosquito's are endemic to the climate and sometimes there will be a hatching in the neighborhood and we will all temporarily experience the inconvenience. The house is treated regularly, and all elements to suppress the insects are addressed. Management is there to insure you enjoy your stay.

Tim's home was exactly as portrayed by the pictures. It was a beautiful and relaxing environment in the middle of the bustling Centro. The fully equipped kitchen was wonderful and we used it quite frequently as we discovered new ingredients and recipes after exploring the market…

The house is as described- it is really lovely and a short walk to the Cathedral plaza. There are many good restaurants & coffee shops nearby. The staff at Remixto was very helpful and ontime for check-in. The hammock options in the bedrooms & in the courtyard are great.
