Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I first visited Cuernavaca in 1985 to attend the Spanish language school El Centro Bilingue on San Jeronimo, now UNINTER. I loved it there, the weather, people, culture, everything. I bought a vacant lot there in 1986 and built the casita in 1996, the one bedroom bungalow I rent regularly. Cuernavaca truly is the city of eternal spring.There is a new larger home built on the back of the lot in 2008 but it is vacant most of the time. Guests have full access to the patio area with many palms and cactus and seating for 6. Also the service yard with washer and dryer.

Why the Owner Chose Cuernavaca:
I can walk to so many places from my house. There is an excellent language school, Spanish Language Institute directly across the street; all the shops, restaurants and businesses on Avila Camacho, even the Zocalo as it is downhill from my house. I am on a cul-de sac next to a huge private home with a large garden so there is not much traffic on my street and the neighbors are wonderful friends now. They manage the property and take care of guests needs. No parking inside the property but the cul-de-sac street entrance has a locked gate and guests park on the street at night.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Weather! it is wonderful. Lots of privacy due to high walls all around. Lovely patio with palms and cactus garden. Very private.
