We stayed here for 10 days and it was perfect. Very clean, quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend to anyone traveling there. Close enough to everything yet far enough away to relax at the end of the day. Everything you need. A true Home away from Home. The care takers are wonderful people. Very kind and helpful. It was a true pleasure to have met them. Highly Recommend!!!!' (end of Kings' review) The fully bi-lingual on-site manager Eduardo (graduate of Univ of Kansas) will pick you up at my expense at the airport or car rental office so you will not have a problem finding the place. On your way from the airport he will also take you grocery shopping at a nice supermarket near the house. If you are ok driving an older car with stick shift, we can provide one at low cost. Eduardo's wife Agnes, a retired professor, gives Spanish lessons for $15 an hour. If needed we will arrange a taxi back to the airport at your expense. If you are staying less than 30 days, we are required by law to charge you the 13% hotel tax.
