Casa Tranquila Available for Rent - Long Term (House is leased)

 Casa Tranquila is available as early as May 1st if someone needs a long term rental immediately. A long term is a minimum of one year.
It is a one bedroom (16 x 20ft) one bath, two story home located in Col. Azteca.  Besides the
lovely gardens there are breathtaking views of the canyon and mountains.  The sunsets are magnificent.
The house is well maintained with everything you need to move in.  All you have to do is bring your clothes
and personal items.  Everything else is provided.
 The first floor is open concept with a living/dining/kitchen area.  Light and airy due to many windows
that look out onto the gardens, it is an uplifting place to live.  The suede covered sofa is a queen sleeper
sofa. The large coffee table is on rollers so it can be moved if you have company and want to open out
the sofa to make a bed.
 Dishes, pots and pans, mixer, toaster, microwave etc etc etc is provided.  Ready for you to prepare a meal or to quickly heat something up.

The house comes with TV with satellite (120 channels), wifi, and plenty of storage.  There are two gas propane heaters for the two relatively cold months of December and January.  
 As you can see from the photos, there is lots of light plus drapes, if you want darkness.
 The house rents for $850USD a month which includes landline telephone, electricity, gas, water, maid service once a week.  Your only expense is to buy your bottled water(20 pesos) and to pay for your laundry which is sent out and returned folded.  The house rents quickly as it is priced  below market.
 This is a view from the stairs that lead to the second floor and third floor large roof terrace.  The house is approximately 1100 square feet.  The windows make it feel much larger.
 On the second floor is the large bedroom which many have used as a den/bedroom or office/bedroom
due to its large size.  It too has many windows for cross ventilation and sunlight.  The bed is a very comfortable queen size bed.  All linens are provided.  There are two closets.  The one in this photo and
another large one tucked around the corner next to the bathroom.
 There is a dresser and chest of drawers and another chest of drawers in the closet near the bathroom  along with a small desk.  A lovely place to sit and write or check emails, while gazing out the open doors to the French Balcony and the large jacaranda tree.

 The bathroom provides a large shower, commode and sink.  Along with another window with views to the West.
 Here is the view from the bedroom toward the jacaranda tree.  Out on the balcony is a lovely
place to enjoy a cup of coffee, a good book or a glass of wine to watch the sunset.

The roof terrace on the third floor provides unparalleled views in all directions and is furnished with a table and four chairs plus some additional seating to enjoy life.

The house is a five minute walk down hill toward the large fruit and vegetable mercado with another five minute walk to the main jardin and the Parroquia. There are two little tiendas within a block or two of the house. Cab service is available by either calling for a cab or walking to the corner and waiting for a taxi to pass by. A taxi costs 30 pesos ($1.50USD) Life is easy here.

It is a quiet colonia.  Very little traffic except early in the morning when the children across the road arrive
for school and at noon when they go home for the day.  Other then that, the only sounds are the birds, someone occasionally playing music and the church bells down in the jardin.

To secure the home, a lease is required along with the first, and last month's rent plus a security deposit of $850USD.

Sorry, no smokers or pets.

Let me be the first to add my testimonial. I have stayed there several times, and would do so again. It is practically perfect in every way.

It appears I may be heading your way in August for the chamber music festival. As you have warned me before, I better start looking now for accommodations.

Thanks Steve for your testimonial. Too bad you can't come over for a month or two this summer. But, I'll look forward to seeing you in August!

I have loved living next to the guest house for 17 years and hope to find someone else who feels the same way for a long term lease.
