Description

The Space

Nice, quiet, two-bedroom apartment, located in wonderful Polanco, in Mexico City. It has a recently remodelled bathroom, a living room and a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, microwave oven, stove, dishwasher, pots and pans, china, etc.). You can cook your own meals and save a lot of money.
The main bedroom has a bed a little smaller than queen size, but it easily fits 2 adults. There's also a futon that can accomodate 2 children under ten. Wireless internet and cable TV are available too.
The other room is small but very cozy and quiet. It has a single bed, a chair and a cupboard. It is ideal for one adult or child.
All of this is for your private use only. This apartment is on the ground floor. The apartment where I live with my mother and my seven-year old son is upstairs.

The apartment is within walking distance of:
3 convenience stores
3 supermarkets
1 Costco store
4 top quality shopping malls
2 museums hosting important art collections
the Red Cross main hospital in Mexico and one of the finest private hospitals in the country (Hospital Español).
Many banks
several typically Mexican restaurants.
1 pretty decent "taquería"
3 European-style bakeries
3 Starbuck's Coffeehouses
3 dry cleaners
a beautiful street for pedestrians where you can jog, walk or rollerskate
3 Catholic churches and 1 Synagogue (a Lutheran church is also available although it is 15 minutes away by taxi)
a health club (you only pay for the days on which you actually use their facilities)
A Curves gym, where you can work out for free if you already are a member of Curves in another city or country.
2 taxi stands which provide safe transportation

Every Tuesday, there is a street market 2 blocks away where you can find fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy products as well as sample a nice variety of Mexico's famous "street food" (if you have an adventurous stomach!).

The apartment is about a mile away from the wonderfully cosmopolitan "Zona de Polanco" or "Polanquito" where you can walk around and enjoy its many attractions (in a wide price range), such as restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, nightclubs, boutiques, bookstores, playground, park and art galleries, not to mention the famous Masaryk Avenue, Mexico City's most sophisticated street, featuring all the chic stores (Vuiton, Tiffany, etc.).
The apartment is less than a block away from the "Periférico", Mexico City's main highway. If you get on a bus or taxi on that highway, you can easily (10 to 40 minutes depending on traffic) get to several of the city's main sightseeing spots such as the "Bosque de Chapultepec" (Mexico City' s own Central Park), the Zoo, the Museum of Anthropology (one of the most important, if not THE most important museum in the country), our very own gorgeuos European- style historic castle which has an amazing view of the city), the Tamayo Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, featuring one of Frida Kahlo's most beautiful and famous paintings), the National Auditorium and one of the city's most beautiful streets, the Avenida Reforma, with its famous Statue of Independence.
If you enjoy walking, you can also get to these spots by foot, going through the beautiful streets of Polanco.
At the auditorium, you can get on the Turibus, which will drive you around the city's main hallmarks, such as the Zocalo Square, the Cathedral and the Palace of Fine Arts. You can get off at any of those spots so you can visit them and then get on again later. If you get off at the Antara Shopping mall stop, you can actually walk back to the apartment (it is 5 minutes away).
A little farther away down the Periférico (15 to 50 minutes, again depending on traffic) you can find the Children's Museum and the "La feria" Amusement Park.

Here are some more amenities we can offer you:

Our cleaning lady will make the bed and clean the bathroom and kitchen every day except for Sundays (no extra-fee for that).
If you want, she can wash and iron your clothes for you, for a small extra-fee.
We provide linens, towels and bars of soap
In case you feel a little nervous about coming to a foreign country and maybe having trouble communicating, I want to let you know that I speak Spanish, Portuguese, French, English ,Italian and a little bit of Russian. But we can always stick to Spanish if you want to practice.


THERE ARE A FEW THING YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH US, THOUGH:

I have two dogs, and although they are not allowed inside the house and you would practically have zero contact with them, you might prefer to stay at a pet-free place. They are over ten years-old, so they are very quiet and they seldom bark. They only go through the apartment once a day (on a leash) when they go out for their walk, around noon. We wash the courtyard where they live at least three times a day, so it is very clean.

I have a seven year-old son, so, even though he spends most of his time upstairs (not to mention he is at school from 8:00 am till 1:40 pm), the the sound of his voice or of him playing with his toys are to be expected.

Smoking is not allowed in the apartment and neither are loud parties and heavy drinking.

NO ONE besides airbnb guests is allowed in the apartment. We are sorry about this rule for we have implemented it both for our and our guests' security. No dates or friends allowed in the apartment.

Guest Access

You will have access to your apartment: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a living space (kitchen, living room, a bar for eating)

Interaction with Guests

There is always someone at the apartment and in the building to assist you in any way you might need. Whether it is me, or my mother, our cleaning lady or the super, we will be happy to help you out.
