Interaction with Guests
Very little. I live across town, my assistant will meet you to check you in/out.
PERFECT! Commercial market district - lively during the day, quiet at night, SAFE.
Taxis on every corner, including right out the front door.
If you are taking the shuttle you MUST consider letting me hire my driver to pick you up. With 2 people, the rate is so close to what you will pay anyway and it is SO much nicer to have a luxury car and private, English-speaking driver. Eduardo, my driver, has a new car with wifi, ipads for both passengers, and it is a much smoother, more comfortable ride than with the shuttle - plus it is straight to the door, so you don't have to go through having everyone else let off before you.
The rate is $70 for 2 people, $90 for 3 people. If you want to use him, just let me know, and I'll arrange to have him pick you up. Eduardo is GREAT, speaks fluent English, plays nice classical music the whole way (or whatever you prefer). Very nice way to start your vacation! :)
He is available for tours, too!
Other Things to Note

General Behavior and Courtesy
This is a private apartment. If you are the type of person who has a long list of requirements. it may not be the place for you. This apartment is ideal for someone who appreciates peace and quiet and privacy. I care very much about your comfort and have honestly tried to provide everything possible for your comfort, but I am likely to be traveling and not able to provide all kinds of hotel/concierge services.
The housekeeper, Laura, comes once a week, usually on Wednesdays from 9-11. Please note it is your responsibility to pay her each week, 150 pesos.
There is no off-street parking available and having a car in San Miguel isn't necessary. However, if you have a car, there is parking directly in front of the apartment on the street. The street is very crowded during the day, but there is lots of parking at night and it is quiet safe (day and night).
The apartment has cable - ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, CNN and more.
We'll handle the cleaning - you will just drop off your keys as arranged. I usually ask that you simply leave them under the plant in front of the door if you are leaving early.
NO PARTIES. NO TEENAGERS. NO LOUD MUSIC. ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING. No more than 3 occupants, please. Well behaved, potty trained dogs under 10lbs are accepted, with a $1000 peso non-refundable pet deposit upon arrival.
