The name, Red Tree House, came about because of Jorge’s holiday decorations, in particular the red lights in the tree in front. The neighbors loved these lights and at their request they were left up at the end of the season and illuminated each night. Soon after people were referring to the house at Culiacan 6 as la Casa del Arbol Rojo.
The house itself was built in the 1930′s and it is reported that the occupants have all been artists of some form or other; writers, painters, and actors. The large home and garden are now an intimate guesthouse popular with travelers who seek comfort and hospitality.
A Red Tree House guest attending a convention in Mexico City was asked by another attendee where she was staying. “I’m staying with friends” she replied. We want all of our guests to feel at home; to enjoy the friendly, informal service and the interactions with the many amazing fellow guests. We strive to be the alternative to the formal, predictable, impersonal, luxury hotel.
Guests of the Red Tree House are generally people who appreciate the beauty of Mexican culture, food, and history and want to engage rather than observe from a distance. Some are budget travelers while others are able to stay anywhere but choose The Red Tree House for its great neighborhood, friendly staff, and the opportunity to meet a diverse group of interesting travelers from all parts of the world.
Rooms at the Red Tree House are tastefully decorated, exceedingly clean and guests frequently comment on the comfortable beds and quality linens. They range in size from the very tiny TreeHouse (one of our most requested rooms), to our modest standard rooms, to the expansive Penthouse and Lafayette Suite. All rooms have private baths with showers.
