“Wonderful retreat, great hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stayed for a full week. So many positives - Anosha is a most gracious hostess, the breakfasts are spectacular, the rooms are comfortable and beautifully appointed. We came to really appreciate the location - it is quiet at night - our friends staying right in town were jealous. Avid hikers, we fell in love with the walk to, from and around town - a good cardio experience. We discovered lovely trails in the national forest above the town and hope to return for further exploration.

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.

I had an excellent time at Casa de la Vida. Anosha is a wonderful host and is always trying to make you feel at home. She is a person full of positive energy and willing to teach all she n¡knows about how you should have a better lifestyle in every way (both physical and spiritual).

I stayed there for five days and had a calm and relaxing holiday, just what I was looking for.

Visited Casa de Vida a couple of times, First time there was really an experience. Casa de vida is a great place to relax, enjoy and detox of the big city. I went with my friends and we really had good time together. Anosha decorated Casa de Vida with good taste and very confortable. Food was really good and healthy. We even had a bonfire at the garden!! and weather helped to had a great weekend plus the great and magic view of Tepoztlán.

I was in Casa de la Vida the other day for a couple of days, I fond just what I needed because I was tired and didn't want the big hotel atmosphere, I just wanted to be alone by myself, away from home. I was well received by Anosha, the owner of the place, she took very good care of me, I didn`t had to do anything but enjoy. The breakfast was great, beautifully served with some fresh fruits, wow!! what a plate!!! Que rico!!!
For the hole day I was lying down in a hammock, reading my book, in silence. I appreciate that so much. oufffff.....
Next time I want to do the Detox, I will plan a few days vacation for that, I`m sure that would make me feel better.
Thank You Casa de la Vida xxxxx

Por la gente que buscan la tranquilidad lejos de la ciudad, les recomiendo este lugar.

I have been to Casa de la Vida a number of times, both alone and with my partner as a b&b guest and to do the detox program, visiting from my home city of Paris. It is an ideal place to stay as a stopover on visits to Mexico as its a wonderful place just to unwind, destress, relax, recharge one's batteries and re-energise, before traveling on further It is a retreat in every sense of the word: beautiful nature, tranquility, harmony and gentility. Anosha,the owner, is a sweetheart and a wonderful host, and is always there to assist and inform. What I like also is being so near to places to visit around Tepoztlan and the nearby city of Cuernavaca. Lots to explore and see in the area. And on other days we just hung out at the house, reading and snoozing on hammocks in the beautiful garden; or we went hiking in the surrounding hills. Anosha would treat us to her incredible smoothies and other treats.Breakfasts are especially yummy! I actually took a course with her to learn about vegetable and fruit juicing as that is a speciality of the house!! I also did 2 detox/ cleanse programs which I expressly came for from France. It is the perfect setting for this since one needs time to prepare before and after to rest. Each time I left with tremendous, renewed energy; plus I found I had lost a few excess kilos which really needed losing!!! The place is very clean and quite elegant but very zen and cosy at the same time. Yes, it is a wonderful place for sure and the whole region is very interesting. No wonder there are so many Europeans and Americans living in the area.People are by and large quite friendly and welcoming. I have made several Mexican and foreign friends from my visits. Thank you Casa de la Vida, thank you Anosha, the hostess with the mostest!!! See you again soon.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms and they enjoy about the same advantages in terms of comfort, view, light...

My trip to Mexico was the first time I had been out of the US and I don’t speak any Spanish. I was completely overwhelmed by the time I reached Casa de la Vida. When the gate opened and I was introduced to Anosha all of my fears instantly disappeared. I knew from the moment I walked through the gate into the beautiful surroundings of her home that I was going to be just fine!

Casa de la Vida is a gorgeous home where you will feel peace and serenity. It is extremely clean, private and welcoming. I felt completely safe there. It is truly a “home away from home”.

Anosha makes the most wonderful teas, smoothies and healthy meals. Everything is prepared fresh for you just prior to being served.

I went to Mexico for a treatment. I was fortunate enough to spend two nights with Anosha prior to my treatment. We talked for hours. She helped me to understand why I had the addictions I had and how to deal with the stress in my life without turning to alcohol or drugs. I am not sure my treatment would have been as successful as it was without the insight Anosha brought to me about my mind, body and spirit.

Words cannot begin to express my feelings toward Anosha. She is an amazing woman. She has an ability to make you feel like you have known her forever. It is almost as though she could see right into my soul. She gave me her undivided attention and made me feel very relaxed and welcomed. She is extremely knowledgeable on cleansing the body and renewing your soul. She provided me with a wealth of resources to continue my journey through life.

I received a Reiki massage which was a very powerful experience. I left Casa de la Vida completely relaxed and prepared for my treatment.

After my treatment I returned to spend my last two nights in Mexico with Anosha (I just couldn’t leave that country without having more of what I had experienced there with her). There were other guests there during that stay, but I still felt the same sense of personal attention and privacy that I had experienced while being the only guest there. It just allowed me to make more new friends!

I highly recommend Casa de la Vida whether you are seeking the cleansing and detoxification benefits or just want a place to relax and rejuvenate yourself. You will go away with a new perspective on life and a sense of well being that I cannot explain!
