About this listing
I DO book for more than 30 day, but you must talk to me first.
Lovely clean and comfortable 1 BR 1 Ba with king and individual beds, potable water, everything you need on your vacation. Fully equipped, good WiFi. Near bus. 8 mins to Centro Historico, 5 mins to Fabrica La Aurora art studios and galleries. Walking to Centro is about 20-30 minutes.
Very well appointed and fully equipped one bedroom apartment, with outdoor dining area as well as indoor. WiFi, DVD and TV, cable.
There is a main house, and two one bedroom apartments in this compound. This is a smoke free environment, but outside is okay.
There's usually other guests within this three home oasis to share information with, plus I am happy to help get you oriented when you first get here, if I'm in town.
Included: use of shared laundry machines, rules and times posted in laundry room, gas and electricity, safe tap water, and WiFi. Weekly cleaner is scheduled for you and only costs you $250 pesos, (abt $15usd). Cleaner is not optional. We pay the weekly gardener.
This apartment has a king bed and an individual sized day-bed sofa in the living room. Sleeps 2 comfortably... We've gathered hand loomed Mexican fabrics for the bedspreads and coupled that with good quality, all cotton, US linens. Beautiful Mexican tiles, ceiling fans, high quality cabinetry, fuse into a colorful, charming quiet elegance, yet is casual and comfortable.
The kitchen is fully equipped, modern and clean. Linens, dishes, cookware, microwave, blender, toaster, a way to make coffee, are all included. There is a walk-in closet in the bedroom. The property was built in late 2008, so it is modern with antique and homey touches, and Mexican charm.
We are located in Colonia Santa Cecilia, which is a relatively level 20- 30 min. walk or 8 minute bus ride to Centro (just about a mile). The bus stops a block away and runs every 10-15 minutes M-F and a bit less frequently on weekends/holidays. Taxis are frequent and inexpensive. It's a good location to reach paths used by bicyclists and hikers.
There is a basketball court where Zumba is held, about 2.5 blocks away. There are outdoor produce markets on Monday and Saturday within 6 blocks. There are small stores on every street. There's a place selling fresh roasted chickens about 2 blocks away.
There are many art and language classes to choose from in SMA, and a plethora of cultural events! Semana Santa (Holy Week) at Easter time is the biggest celebration of the year. There are nearby hot springs, and many spas, fabulous restaurants, equally fabulous street tacos, wandering minstrels, mariachi (URL HIDDEN) is too varied to describe. Many people come for a visit and end up buying or renting a house to move to!
Please note, there is no smoking allowed inside, but outside on your terrace is fine.
There is a patio (with table &chairs just for you), and a shared laundry. This is a 3 home oasis, so you all share the front entrance, then have your own private home. You can be on your own entirely, or get to know your neighbors for a community feel.
There's room for a couple of bicycles, if you are bringing yours. There is undeveloped country right behind the house, so bring your birding glasses!

I retired to Mexico from California with a desire to re-connect to creativity and fun and adventure. It has not disappointed me! Inspiration is everywhere. I feel so fortunate to live in a thriving artist colony. I had no idea how culturally diverse and wonderful Mexico is. Come for a visit, and you just may stay forever for the lifestyle!
I have a son, a daughter, and 3 wonderful grandchildren still in California and New Mexico.
