La Penita house description

5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths and mature landscaping make this a great retreat! 2 of the bedrooms have ensuites and the other 2 on the main floor share a bathroom. The upstairs bedroom has a half bath and a great balcony overlooking the large courtyard. There is a full kitchen and a fridge and grill in the outside bar area as well as a BBQ. There is an outside shower by the pool for your convenience. The pool is approximately 1.5 m deep so not suitable for very small children. The town is a thriving Mexican town of about 10,000. There are many Canadians and Americans there and it is quiet and friendly.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I am a Realtor/Property Manager in Kelowna, BC and have been for 25 years. I Love Mexico and fell in love with this area! Didn't want to be in a really small village and didn't want to be in a larger tourist type city so found LaPenita was just the right size! I grew up on the Prairies but just don't enjoy the winters anymore. I enjoy doing pottery and hope to one day bring my wheel and kiln to Mexico and stay there for 6 months of the year. I enjoy working with people but that makes me enjoy my 'space' as well. I find the mature gardens in the courtyard of the house and the privacy of the pool are my favorite places to be when I have some vacation time!

                          Why the Owner Chose La Penita:
                          This property was a 30 year old house on a large lot. The mature trees and the spacious house attracted us. It needed Lots of work but we had a vision and it's nice to see it come together! This was the only area we wanted to live in after looking at all the towns and villages in the surrounding areas. I love the gentleness of the ocean and am not into surfing so didn't want the big waves. I also love the feel of the town! Lots of working class Mexican people and I feel very safe and comfortable there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The mature trees and greenery are my favorite - I love the garden and the 1.5 m deep pool!
