We and another couple spent 9 nights at Casa de los Milagros. There are only three bedrooms in the house and we were renting two of them, so essentially we had the whole place to ourselves. It would be an ideal place for a family or a group of six friends traveling together.
The house is tastefully decorated with a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture and original artwork. After a long day of sightseeing, we could come "home" and lounge in the patio downstairs or on the rooftop terrace where we could see fireworks during one of the many small fiestas that were taking place in the city during our visit in October. We had full use of the kitchen to fix light meals or snacks in the evening, as well as the TV room, telephone and computer.
The owners, Rene and Adriana were wonderful, as was Christina and Lucia who prepared our breakfast each morning. It was a real treat to come downstairs and find such a beautifully set breakfast table. We started each day with with a healthy meal of fresh-squeezed orange juice, delicious coffee, fresh fruit with yoghurt and granola, pan dulce, and a different entree each day. Talk about being spoiled !!!
As an added convenience, they also provide same-day laundry service about 3 times per week which is great if you're planning a long stay.
The only thing I would recommend would be to take a set of earplugs, especially if you like to sleep with the windows open, because the house is located on a street with a fair amount of bus traffic. Other than that, it was a perfect place to stay, and we couldn't have asked for more. You won't be disappointed.
Our thanks to the owners, Rene and Adriana, Christina and Lucia for making our visit such a pleasant and enjoyable one.
