I decided to attend a birthday party in Tepostlan for a long time family friend on the spur of the moment. I booked my flight at midnight on Thursday night and departed to Mexico City the
next morning. I had no idea where I was going to be staying when I arrived in Tepoztlan, not
having made any pre arrangements. I met my mother in Tepoztlan as she was also attending
the birthday bash. We ended up at Casa de la Vida based on a glowing recommendation of
Anosha's beautiful home and her wonderful hospitality.
I loved Casa de la Vida from the moment we arrived until we departed. The home is beautifully decorated with a lot of personality and it is absolutely spotless everywhere. I am a bit of a cleanliness fanatic, so that made me very comfortable. The best part about staying there was
the fact it was like being entertained in a friend's home and not staying in a hotel. Anosha is one
of the most amazing and interesting people I've ever met. She radiates such positive energy with a generous and loving spirit. She could not do enough for us, constantly in hand with warm teas, refreshing waters with fruits and herbs, or some delectable treat. We had a bountiful breakfast in the morning that was beautiifully presented with fresh flowers and herbs.
I learned a lot from Anosha that wknd, as she is very knowledgeable about many subjects from history, nutrition, excersize, world travel...She not only has a lot of interesting things to say,
but she is also a great listener as if she is like your new best friend within minutes of meeting her.
She truly has the gift of making everyone feel special and welcome in her home. It is obvious that it is genuinely from the heart and not a phony act strictly for business. You can tell that
she truly enjoys hosting guests in her home and it is not just a business to her.
Anosha took us on a little hike around the area the morning before we departed that was a wonderful end to our weekend at Casa de la Vida. Our stay there was way too short. I can not
wait to return to charming Tepoztlan surrounded by the striking mountain range and I would not
stay at any other place than Casa de la Vida with Anosha.
