The kitchen/dining room:
Fitted with a gas stove and oven; fridge freezer; microwave; slow cooker; blender; toaster; and coffee maker, as well as a fully stocked spice rack. The kitchen is equipped with enough crockery and cutlery in addition to a complete range of cooking utensils facilitating effortless home cooking.
My favorite feature of the kitchen is the fully functional brick grill/oven. Not only is perfectly suited for grilling your favorite cuts of meat, and vegetables, but can also provide warmth on a cold winter day (firewood provided).
This living area of the house is routinely visited by the humming birds that come to feed from the lemon tree and other nectar laden plants cultivated in the patio.
A second dining table and chairs is provided in this area, should you decide to enjoy your meal "al fresco" during the hottest part of the day. Bamboo furniture provides comfortable seating accommodation and a TV/DVD device is provided for your entertainment as well as an ample coffee table.
Another very important feature in the patio is the fire wood stove called " Estufa Justa". Our guests are welcomed to try this facility; which is excellent for making the famous Mexican tortillas as well as beef burgers, roasted plantains, sweet potatoes, and even crepès. Please, don't be afraid to ask for assistance in this gastronomic experience, it comes free of charge!
The roof top:
Are you a sun worshiper? Well, this is the place for you! This area of the house enjoys complete privacy from any overlooking neighbors. Fully tiled floors provide the ideal space for an idle moment. This is the only communal area visited from the downstairs tenants who would only come up to adjust the hot water thermostat (if needed) or to use the fully automatic washing machine provided for both floors.
Additional features and points to consider.
Additional single bed supplied for short stays for additional guest. Wi-fi signal throughout. A small wild area provides the needed space for your pet's needs, and no car parking area available at present.
Available all summer and winter for short or long term vacations!
This modest house built in an Arabic style, combined with Colonial features offers the best of both worlds for entertaining or just leading a quite life. Two spacious sunny balconies with the view of the tallest mountain in Mexico "The snow capped Pico de Orizaba" provides the ideal space to enjoy the first part of the morning.
THINGS TO DO IN XALAPA!
The main attraction in Xalapa is the Museum of Anthropology, which houses almost thirty centuries of art and history, especially of pre-Columbian cultures. Xalapa also has the largest collection of Diego Rivera’s (Mexican artist) paintings in Mexico at Pinacoteca Diego Rivera. Visit the Governor’s Palace, famous for its murals and the Cathedral of Xalapa opposite to it.
For recreation, head to Juárez Park where you can enjoy a programme on regional music and dance. For a day trip, visit the town of Xico, which has the Texolo Waterfall, a 264-foot waterfall that drops into a canyon. You could also visit the El Tajin ruins.
