I stayed at Casa Roha with my husband and 10 year old son. We always rent vacation rentals and have a few of our own so we are pretty particular. Frankly, I was absolutely stunned when I arrived. The pictures didn't capture the actual beauty of the place. It is lush and quiet and somehow they hit the perfect balance of beauty, Mexican flavor and comfort in an eclectic style that was at times breath taking ! The owners have TONS of plants everywhere and you just feel so happy to be there! If you rent the upstairs unit the views from the roof deck are tremendous!! I was up EVERY morning to watch the the sunrise over the valley...a spirit altering experience!! The owners have huge pots with flowering plants overflowing, fantastic, mosaic everywhere (no Home Depot here!) and all around a lovely mix of Mexican flavor and European comfort.
The courtyard was one of our favorite spots to sit and read or talk. Very romantic! So relaxing! (though my son made plenty of noise running around it at times!) And we loved walking to the Center which took about 12 minutes.
Jane and Paul were great! They were helpful with answering our many questions about where to go, (guiding us to out of the way markets, and hot baths}, how to go, what was the best this or that ecc.. They also gave us complete privacy. It was the perfect balance of knowing there was help available if we needed but they were never hovering.
I gladly recommend Casa Roha! We hope to return again next spring. I promise, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Meg! Our upstairs apartment is available only in the summer, but guests renting the downstairs apartment still have access to the roof terrace - not a problem even if the upstairs apartment is occupied.
