Kitchen. Everything you’ll need in those cabinets.

You’ll also find an abundance of bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, sheets and blankets, including a real goose-down comforter for our chilly winter nights.

There’s a balcony with a view of the Sierras and glorious sunsets. The house is a 10- to 15-minute walk to Pátzcuaro’s famed, huge, beautiful Plaza Grande which is lined with towering fir trees, coffee shops and an abundance of restaurants.

Available for short-term vacation rentals or long-term stays. The owners, a bi-national couple, respond immediately to any rare problems that might appear.

There is a laundromat just over a block away. A supermarket is about half a mile away. Public transportation in the form of minibuses and taxis pass regularly one block away.

Good times

At 7,200 feet above sea level, Pátzcuaro is usually cool, often damp. Leave your shorts and sandals at home. October till mid-December is the best time to visit, especially November when it’s picture-perfect. Spring is less desirable. It can get warm and stuffy, especially in the early evenings.

Rates in U.S. dollars, payable via PayPal:

Vacation stays of up to two months, $800 per month. There is a two-week minimum, $500. Maid service and utilities included. For longer stays, $600 per month. Maid service and utilities are not included for long-term tenants.

Cancellation policy: Cancel at least a week beforehand, and we refund 100 percent. Cancel at least 24 hours before, and we refund 75 percent. If we turned other tenants away, however, we return 50 percent if you canceled at least a week before your scheduled arrival but no refund if it’s less than a week. Seems fair.
