This lovely 625 square foot condominium is part of a 17 unit gated condominium complex, Departamentos Ecologicos de Manantial in Colonia Allende. It is located in a beautiful, secure, quiet area on the edge of El Caracol and Guadiana, just off Ancha San Antonio. It is a 20 minute walk to El Centro or a 10 minute bus ride.
The condo is on the second floor and has a very large private terrace above, equipped with sink and electrical outlets. This condo is very quiet, surrounded by trees, plants, water fountains, etc. It is very comfortable, airy, bright, and built in the traditional Mexican style with balconies and timbered ceilings. My property manager is very helpful, and is also trilingual (English, Spanish and French). There is a housekeeper, and a handyman/gardener on site. The housekeeper cleans once a week for $20 per stay. Purified water is supplied at no extra charge.
All appliances are in good working order. There are dishes—all sizes, bowls, linens, towels, iron, ironing board, pots and pans, blender, toaster oven, and microwave-- everything you need for a comfortable vacation. The large bedroom has a king size bed, a large closet with hangers and a dresser with mirror.
There is a washer and a dryer located on the terrace.
Wi-Fi and good cable TV (BBC, PBS, CNN, and other English speaking stations) as well as a radio and books are provided.
The orange and white bus #7 is three short blocks away on 5 de Mayo, and takes you into the Center in ten minutes. If you prefer to go on foot, it is a pleasant walk to Centro going through the quiet street of Aldama along el Parque Juarez or the busier Ancha de San Antonio. There are small grocery stores within a few blocks on 5 de Mayo, and the large supermarket La Comer is about a 10 minute walk away.
The owners and tenants in the complex are a nice mix of ex-pats, travels, and locals.
