Should you not want the cats in the dining room either, it's possible to find an alternative.

Доступно гостям

There is a pedestrian door to the street and a sliding garage door gate if you bring a car. There is a gate between the driveway and the rest of the property that should stay closed so my dog Ginger does not go into the driveway. The dining room window remains open for cats to come and go and be fed by the housekeeper. There is a door from the dining room that locks from the rest of the house. The back outside dining room door remains unlocked for housekeeper to have access to this room where the dog and cat food are stored. Her name is Marta and she is very trustworthy having worked for owner for over two decades. You will love her. She is a native of the local village of Huixtan and speaks fluent Spanish and Tzotzil Maya but still does not read or write. Should you object to the cats in the dining room, upon request, other arrangements can be made for them to be fed elsewhere.

Другие важные подробности

San Cristobal is the central market town for some million indigenous maya from all over the highlands. The small city has many attractions and is easily reachable to many indigenous towns as well. It is easy to travel to the Maya ruins of Tonina, Palenque, Bonampak and Yaxchilan. Also further onward, to Campeche, Yucatan, Cancun; even Guatemala, some 3 hours from SCLC to the border. Since SCLC is in the highlands, the climate is ideal; never getting too hot or too cold for westerners; there is a rainy season in summer and dry-cold season in winter.

We are travelling through Mexico with our two dogs. We were so happy to find a place with a yard that accepts dogs. The house is within walking distance to so many restaurants, churches, museums, etc. in the center of town. We have walked our legs off. Secure parking and an interesting home. We cooked a lot of our meals at the house and enjoyed relaxing on the patio.

I recommend Janet's place for anyone who is interested in enjoy some quiet time and relaxing in San Cristobal de las Casas. The house has a nice country side feel, huge garden where you can sunbath a little to warm up from the cold weather and play with the dogs. Internet works ok, we had some problems to shower hot water, Marta and Alex, who help Janet when she's away, were very responsive though, although we could never finish a full shower with hot water. It's a nice 15-20 minutes from the center of the town, but that's def not a reason not to stay here. It was nice to be a little secluded and enjoy the part of town where most tourists don't go to.

Hi Paula, Thanks for the nice review. I wish you would have messaged me about the hot water as it is endless but you have to know how to regulate the flow of water slowly and not add hardly any cold water to it. In any case, I will have Alex check it. It also may have been low on gas.

We were greeted and settled in my Marta, Isaac and the cute dogs and shown through the house. Everything was pretty straight forward. It was nice to spend the evenings in front of the fire. Janet was particularly awesome and flexible in regards to our stay, which we had to re-schedule a few times due to protest activity. Her books are also a great read before venturing out, as you'll be able to pick out many things that are mentioned in them.

first, i have to say that janet was so helpful and accommodating when i got stuck in tuxtla gutirrez for a couple days! i loved staying at her place, it's definitely more rustic than a hotel in the centro, but still really lovely. I'd also mention that the hot water was better than I've had in two weeks! the yard is great, so are her dogs. her housekeeper was also fantastic. it's an easy walk into town.

Janet's house was wonderful the picture realy did not do it justice so much light and space. It was clean quite and had a beautiful veiw and garden. Jenet was away but Marta her house keeper helped us with every thing we needed atentive but respectful of our space. Lot of life in the yard bunnies and ducklings chickens dogs and a puppy. About ten fifteen minute walk to the main square. Comfy bed and couches, enough hot water for at least two showers back to back once you get the hang the taps. A perfect place to explore San Cristobal from or just reteat to. We will be coming back.

This house has a nice garden around it, which makes it feel like you are more in nature even though San Cristobal is a fairly large town. Janet's dog Ginger is so sweet, and Marta, who takes care of the grounds, was very helpful. The house is walking distance from the city center, though you'll probably want to take a taxi back if you are coming home late.
