We recently spent 4 nights in Taxco and I feel lucky to have found such a beautiful palce. The porch in the front of the main house has a great view of Taxco and the roof deck has an even better view! The large living/dining room is very comfortable with a large dining table(seats 8 comfortably) and lots of nice couches. The bedroom and library/day bed room is quite large and leads into a very large bathroom. The full kitchen has it's own door and a large fridge. The walk up to the place can be a bit challenging but just take it slow and easy and you'll be rewarded with a lovely comfortable place to relax.They have a lush lawn and beautiful foliage with some tall palm trees. Beautiful!
And don't hesitate to contact the wonderful family that takes care of the place.Oscar, Sylvia, and their kids are warm wonderful people and full of information about the area. Oscar drove us to the caves (a must see) and to the bus stop the day we left. Sylvia prepared a home cooked meal that was a highlight of our stay. Oscars' english is very good and he was always around to help us any way he could. One of their sons gave us a lot of information about where we were headed next and it was very helpfull.
Taxco is a beautiful town to visit and it's so nice to have a place to stretch out and relax. we were there for day of the dead and I highly recommend it. The town does it up right with all the kids dressing up and parading around the zocalo. It was so much fun.Who needs a hotel when you can have a house for a much lesser price? I can't wait to go back.
