Great House

  • 4 of 5

I was worried that the house might be small and cramped for 4 people, but it was actually spacious and very well laid out. Everything has been modernized and is in good condition. We also loved spending time on the rooftop terrace and outdoor patio on the main level. Eduardo, the property manager, is a very nice fellow and very accommodating. He brought us two extra lounge chairs (from his own house!) so we could all 4 lounge on the roof. So nice!

Pedregoso is a great street. It is on a hill, but the house is near the bottom, on the east end of the street, so there's not too much climbing involved. Pedregoso is very close to the Malecon, and about 5 minutes from Plazuela Machado and maybe 7 from the Mercado. All of Centro Historico is highly accessible from this street. Unfortunately, the City was doing road construction on Pedregoso as well as on the street (Compana) behind the house, for the entire time we were there, which made things very dusty and very noisy. That impacted our enjoyment of our stay. However, it does mean new sewer lines were put in and fresh concrete will now be on that street, so future renters should have great enjoyment.

We did wish for more chairs and more comfortable furniture inside the house. Even though it accommodates 4 people, it's probably better for 2. Lots of pots and pans and all of the kitchen accoutrements.

Great house and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is for sale so I don't know if it will continue to be available through VRBO but we would definitely rent it again. Eduardo, the property manager, was was very welcoming and helpful.

Comfort and Convenience in Centro Historico

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking to experience the real Mazatlan, we highly recommend Jeff’s house in Centro Historico. Situated on Calle Pedregoso, the house is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. With two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a well equipped kitchen, UV filtered water system, and onsite laundry facilities, living in “Maz” becomes easy.

Eduardo, the house manager, is excellent; very helpful, tending to any issues that arise very quickly and without fail.

The biggest plus for this house is its location; everything one could want is within an easy 15 minute walk. You can enjoy the Plazuela Machado with its restaurants and the Angela Peralta Theatre (seven minutes), the beach at Olas Altas and the malecon (five minutes), and the main shopping market, Mercardo Pino Suarez (15 minutes). For places farther afield the bus system is inexpensive and easy to use.

Music abounds in Historico and particularly at the Machado. Whether it’s jazz at Bohemia on Tuesdays, or bands in the bandshell on weekend evenings, a person can always find some entertainment. For us, nothing beats an evening cocktail at Tramoya watching the world go by - the perfect end to the day.

All in all, we can’t say enough good things about Jeff’s house, its location, and Mazatlan. We’ll be back.

Beautifully restored home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house has absolutely everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable visit to Mazatlán's cultural center. It is located several blocks from the major plazas, market, and boardwalk. We especially found the abarrotes Hidalgo, just a half a block down the hill, to be quite convenient and friendly. Not only would we recommend this property to a friend, we hope to return soon ourselves and enjoy the roof-top vistas for another extended visit!

Comfort in Centro HIstorico

  • 5 of 5

This attractive house has all the amenities one could wish, including pressurized potable tap water. Everything was extremely clean and in working order. The owner and manager provided excellent service. There were abundant supplies of linens, tissues, and soaps. Everything in the historic center is within easy walking distance: the malecon, plazuela, the mercado, museums, excellent and inexpensive yoga classes at El Recreo, and abundant, reasonably-priced restaurant choices. Allegro became a daily habit for us for both coffee drinks and light meals. I was a little concerned about walking up the hill but found it very easy.

Fabulous house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Jeff's photos are nice, but they don't do the place justice - it's a fantastic house! It's roomy, comfortable, nicely decorated, and has all your modern conveniences. The second floor bedroom balcony and the rooftop deck offer great views of the city. And on top of all that, the location is terrific. Pedregoso is a fun street and neighborhood, in and of itself. The Super Hidalgo tienda is about a block to the east, the plazuela with the library is just beyond that, and about three block farther on you've got the Plazuela Machado, which is a great place to hang out. We spent a lot of time there, eating, drinking and watching the quinceañera parties. Then to the west, the Olas Altas beach and malecon are only about three blocks away. Everything in the beautiful Centro Historico is an easy walk away, including the Mercado and the Cathedral, but if you go to Paseo Olas Altas you can catch a pulmonia, taxi, or camioneta that will take you anywhere you want to go in Mazatlán.

Gloria was wonderful, she waited patiently as we made our way into town from the airport, and arrived promptly to check us out. If we ever make it back to Mazatlán, and I certainly hope we do, Pedregoso #2 will be our #1 choice for a place to stay!
