HISTORIC ADOBE CLOSE TO CENTRAL PLAZA AND RESTAURANTS

Alamos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

110 year old adobe on cobblestone street, stained concrete floors, corner fireplace, large barbecue, fruit trees, very near fine restaurants. Horseback ride around the outskirts of the town is a favorite, play tennis, or walk around the town until your legs hurt - a massage and a spa is just out your back door. Tours of historic homes almost always available, Alamos will enchant you!

The owner, Kelley Hale, lived in this home for years, restoring its adobe character, adding landscaping, stone cobbled garden paths, and a large tiled barbecue. It is air conditioned and heated. On the roof above its 12 foot high Amapa log ceilings are solar panels which provide most of the home's electricity. The landscaped back yard is shaded by mango and orange trees. Having a completely walled perimeter, it is safe for pets. A back gate is within 50 yards of a fine restaurant and bar.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only

Best casita in a real colonial town, Alamos!

My stay in Alamos was all the more delightful because of my host and his wonderful casita. The owner is a retired San Francisco architect and the finishing touches to the house are perfect. Walking right out the door, down the cobblestone street to the center for a coffee to watch the world wake up, the sounds of horses clipclopping by in the afternoon, the comfortable beds, the quietness you get from 2 ft thick old abode walls, all of it authentic colonial Mexico and charming.
The owner provided me with great ideas for things to do and places to eat, including where to get the best fish tacos.
If I could give it more stars, I would.

A Place for Living...

Cuando la puerta de la casa se abriò, ahì estaba eso que nunca hemos podido descifrar: el silencio que te habla entre la luz que baja de los techos y se extiende como un guìa entre los espacios que son cuartos corredores y portales comedores, mientras los àrboles frutales se meten a tus ojos. Todo està absolutamente limpio y en orden: por fin el recuerdo.
Cuando menos lo piensas, estàs hablando en voz baja, el espacio se està comunicando contigo y hay un respeto, como un encuentro amistoso.
Un espacio para disfrutar, descansar, meditar, para volver a encontrarse.
Lo recomendamos sin duda alguna. Fueron unos dìas maravillosos.
La casita està cerca de todo. Buenos restaurantes, comida tìpica, cerca de la plaza, de los portales. Un lugar para vivirse.
Owner's Response: gracias por su visita y amables palabras!

charming and comfortable home

It was very peaceful and comfortable to stay in this house. Located on a quiet street but just a 5 minutes walk to the historic center. The living room is very comfortable and well-lit, kitchen is beautiful, functional with a nice view of the back garden and the courtyard is the perfect place for reading a good book.

Alamos has the status of Pueblo Magico and you can clearly see why. You will fall in love with this historic, quaint and peaceful colonial town and with its friendly residents.

As a Mexican whose ancestors were from Alamos, I feel proud every time I come back and find the town prettier than ever.
Owner's Response: Thank you! We are looking forward to a return visit.

Alamos is 9 hours drive south of Tucson, AZ on I-19 and Mexico Hwy 15. Then in Navajoa, go east 50km.

Alamos lies in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Occidental. An abrupt change in elevation occurs from the Sea of Cortez (sea level) to Alamos at 1,346 feet to the Sierra de Alamos rising to 6,700 feet continuing on to the Chihuahua border where the elevation reaches 7,500 feet. This actually covers 70 miles as the crow flies.

The Surrounding Area includes the estuaries alive with bird life, Mayo villages, a mining town, rivers where you can take float trips and trails for horseback riding.

HISTORY:

President Zedillo declared 188 structures in the Colonial City of Alamos as National Historic Monuments on November 23, 2000.

The city, founded in 1681, is in position for being considered a United Nations World Heritage Site of which there are fourteen sites in Mexico. Mansions built in the late 1700s, abandoned and then restored after WWII can be toured for a fee that helps Amigos de Educación fund further education for deserving students.

Alamos has been named one of a limited number of 'Pueblos Magicos' in Mexico, a special designation that has brought funds for undergrounding the electric wires.

LANDSCAPE:

As you enter Sonora traveling south from the Arizona border you pass through the richness of the Sonoran Desert. The landscape is dominated by Palo Verdes, Ironwood and huge columnar cacti.

Arriving at the seaport of Guaymas, the Sierra Madre practically touches the Sea of Cortez. From here south along the coastal plain there are extensive agricultural lands supported by the reservoirs created on the Yaqui and Mayo Rivers.

The coastal lowlands are very diverse in plant and animal species. Due to the increase in rainfall and absence of frost, this vegetation is referred to as Matoral. Matoral blends at the coast with dune systems and rich mangrove estuaries making the coast of Sonora rich in natural resources as it meets the Sea of Cortez.

From sea level at Navojoa you turn east and climb thirty five miles to Alamos. As Matoral gives way to foothills at the Sierra Madre, you find yourself entering the Dry Tropics or Tropical Deciduous Forest. The road winds through the more dense vegetation that exhibits flowering trees every month of the year. This forest, with a canopy of ten to twelve meters envelopes the tall columnar cacti, so in the wet season they go unnoticed while in the dry season they appear to dominate the forest. All this makes a picturesque entrance to the colonial town of Alamos.

Alamos lies in the foothills of the Sierra Madre. Along the falda (skirt) of the Sierra the fingers of Tropical Deciduous Forest extend up into oak and pine – this ribbon of Dry Tropical vegetation extends along the foothills into Central America. Alamos lies in the most northern limits of Tropical Deciduous Forest in this hemisphere.

CLIMATE:

The Tropical Deciduous Forest hosts two climates: a dry temperate time from mid October through June and a wet humid tropical time from July through mid October. The months of November through February are salubrious with days in the 80ºs and nights in the 50ºs.

In March the forest drops most of its leaves, the columnar cacti become more prominent like soldiers standing in the forest. In June the humidity builds heralding the coming wet season. On San Juan’s day (June 24) the indigenous people dance and pray to San Juan for rain and blessing of good crops. It almost always rains on this date. The rains are a celebration of life, as the trees burst into leaf, frogs sing and iguanas look for new mates. Monsoon type rains deluge the hills daily. Even though the humidity is high, the temperatures are more stable. The wet season is a time to rejoice.

AIRPORT:

Alamos has its own non-commercial airport with new 5000 ft runway
