The Upstairs patio:
This shared patio area of the house is routinely visited by the humming birds that come to feed from the lemon tree and other nectar laden plants cultivated in the patio.
A second dining table and chairs is provided in this area, should you decide to enjoy your meal "al fresco" during the hottest part of the day. Bamboo furniture provides comfortable seating accommodation and a TV/DVD device is provided for your entertainment as well as an ample coffee table.
Another very important feature in the patio is the fire wood stove called " Estufa Justa". Our guests are welcomed to try this facility; which is excellent for making the famous Mexican tortillas as well as beef burgers, roasted plantains, sweet potatoes, and even crepès. Please, don't be afraid to ask for assistance in this gastronomic experience, it comes free of charge!
The roof top:
Are you a sun worshiper? Well, this is the place for you! This area of the house enjoys complete privacy from any overlooking neighbors. Sun visited from 09:00 fully tiled floors provide the ideal space for an idle moment. This is the only communal area visited from the downstairs tenants who would only come up to adjust the hot water thermostat (if needed). An iron and ironing board are provided here for your convenience.
Additional features and points to consider.
Additional single bed supplied for short stays. Wi-fi signal throughout. A small wild area provides the needed space for your pet's needs.

Child and pet friendly "Casa la Posada"
The house is situated away from the main busy road at a three minute walk to the taxi and bus service. A stalls market brings in the freshest of fruit, and vegetables on Saturdays and a very well stocked supermarket is five minutes away in a taxi. Eco tourism is a developing industry in this area and we would be very happy to recommend the "in" places to go to at very short distances.
THINGS TO DO IN XALAPA!
The main attraction in Xalapa is the Museum of Anthropology, which houses almost thirty centuries of art and history, especially of pre-Columbian cultures. Xalapa also has the largest collection of Diego Rivera’s (Mexican artist) paintings in Mexico at Pinacoteca Diego Rivera. Visit the Governor’s Palace, famous for its murals and the Cathedral of Xalapa opposite to it.
The city has three lakes, Los Lagos being the most picturesque, where a lovely view of the snow-capped 18,000-foot volcano Citlaltopetl can be enjoyed. There is the Francisco Javier Clavijero Botanical Garden displaying over 1,500 species of plants.
For recreation, head to Juárez Park where you can enjoy a programme on regional music and dance. For a day trip, visit the town of Xico, which has the Texolo Waterfall, a 264-foot waterfall that drops into a canyon. You could also visit the El Tajin ruins.
We hope you enjoy your stay!
Upstairs 1 bedroom unit with courtyard, bedroom, kitchen and roof access.

Here is a nice review from one of our happy guests!
I was charmed by Casa la Posada. As I was preparing meals I enjoyed the view of the barrio and of the volcano, Orizaba. When curious about a sound, or someone hawking things like water or tamales, I could step out on the narrow balcony to investigate. I liked relaxing in the sitting area off to one side of the lovely patio with orchids, gardenias and other flowering plants. The upstairs kitchen/bedroom apt. opened onto this spacious area. We had our dog Mina with us. It was so easy to take her to the third level open area for her "needs". This area has a bamboo tree barrier where it connects to the adjacent property. The second level has a wonderful washing machine and clothes lines which I happily used. What was most obvious to me was that there had been so much attention to details for my comfort. In terms of enjoying Xalapa, it was an easy and interesting walk to grab a taxi. We visited the Anthropology Museum twice, the main reason we returned to Xalapa. Our host did us a favor by recommending a coffee shop on the Callejon Diamante in Centro. Indeed, it is some of the best coffee I have ever tasted. For any questions during our stay, we communicated by email with our host who responded quickly. I want to add about the car repair we needed while in Xalapa. We have an 84 Volkswagon vanagan camper. A wheel bearing was giving out as we neared Xalapa. We were able to take it to the Volkswagen Agencia. Although they do not work on "old" cars, they accepted the challenge of finding the parts locally and repairing it. It seemed to me to be a perfect example of the kind of hospitality we encountered during our visit.

We rented the downstairs unit but our travel plans changed. The unit had been paid in full and we were not sure if we would be able to receive a refund. Fortunately, the property owner met with us and returned our money in full! What could have been a very disappointing experience turned out to be a very pleasant conversation with the very gracious, fair-minded property owner.
