Our home

This is the place to be if you want to be pampered for a few months (school year Sept 30, 2016-June 30 2017). Eva, our sweet, and absolutely trustworthy nanny is who takes care of us. She works here from mid-Monday through Friday and will keep the rooms and prepare or help prepare a healthy lunch (great cook). Washing clothes is separate and you can come to an agreement with Eva . The apartment is in a the second floor of an 8 story building, constructed by my mom, so all you can see through the large windows are trees and gardens. Inside, there are three very large rooms one of which is used as a studio, TV room with a fouton for visitors. Each room has it´s own bathroom, one newly fully remodeled by an artist friend, and walk in closets. There is a half bath for guests. There is also a large living room with a piano and a tree which has been with us for more than 20 years, as well as a separate cozy inside garden-dining room. The kitchen is large and a comfortable place for breakfast. Eva´s room and bathroom is in the second part of the house. In the building there is a warm covered swimming pool with changing rooms, a garden with a children´s area, and a tennis court . We have an indoor garage and we could discuss about including an exchange of cars. The building is kept by Arnulfo Gomez, whom we have known for 40 years (and his coworkers), so that anything that you may need regarding the house will be cared for.
We have a cat, Shadow, he is a 14 y.o. American Short Hair New Yorker. We still haven´t figures out if he should travel to San Fran or stay at home or go live with friends. We could also talk about your preference. Eva loves him and would take care of him if he were to stay.

We have lived in San Francisco before and are looking forwarding to afternoons in the warming hut and to long bike rides. It would be just us two moving to San Fco. You do not have to worry about us taking excellent care of your home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is in a residential area close to Chapultepec Park, around 10 minutes from the Museum strip (Modern art Muesum, Anthropology, and Tamayo) and the National Auditorium with the many small theatres. It is close to Polanco where you will find all types of restaurants a nice park and walking areas.
You will for sure need a car to get around, this is a residential area, so in order to go to movies or restaurants you will need a car, and especially if you want to visit other areas in and outside of the city like Cuernavaca or Tepoztlán or go north to San Miguel de Allende. All relatively close (1 to 3 hs) and beautiful areas for long weekends.
