The house shares the enclosed remainings of an ancient sugarmill & hacienda. Fits 12, has four rooms, living & dining rooms, & veranda. Surrondend by wide gardens. Property shares pool & tennis court. 24/7 security. 1.5 hrs from Mexico City.
This house is inside a hacienda, built in the XVII century as a sugarmill. After the 1910 revolution it lost all of its surrounding land, but the main house, the warehouses and the buildings where sugar was made, are preserved to this day. During the 1970’s, 35 families bought what remained of the hacienda, seven acres of land, and started a cooperative in order to protect it and enjoy it. The Casa del Gato, or house of the cat, belongs to one of these founding families.
The common property includes a tennis court, a pool, many gardens and the best spots to practice relaxation among buildings from other times. The hacienda is walled and entrance is permitted to owners and registered visitors only; security is 24 x 7.
It has four rooms, each with a bathroom, and sleeps twelve. Although it has a large living room, the weather invites you to spend most of the time in a veranda equipped with hammocks and surrounded by plants and trees. We can provide a maid at your service for the entire stay at an extra cost.
You can also visit Xochicalco, one of the main archeological sites in Mesoamerica. If you decide to stay at Casa del Gato, we will gladly send you tips and daytrip ideas to try to take the most advantage of your stay.

Thank you. We wish you a nice stay
We are helping our mom rent her beautiful house. Our father, who was a photographer, and our mother, a retired advertisement producer built this house pretty much as an art project many years ago, focusing in every detail. We enjoyed it fully with our parents, family and friends. The house, the magic of the hacienda and the surroundings are full of memories for all of us. We are thrilled to share them with people from all over the world.
