We arrived in SC after a long arduous bus journey from Palenque and were so looking forward to melting into this house and enjoying our 3 week stay. Instead we arrived to a stuffy cat pee smell in the house which we didn't manage to get rid of the whole time we were there. The sofa was broken and reeked of cats' pee. The stuffing was coming out of dusty cushions. The floor was so filthy I had to put my shoes on as soon as I woke up. The house was so cluttered and filled with dusty objects. The cupboards were full of Janet's ingredients including the fridge full of bottles which had been there for months. the oils next to the stove greasy and gathering dust. The Plates and cups were chipped, the bed linen in shreds. The dining room we were told was out of bounds, was full of cat litter bags and cat food which was strewn across the table and floor. The smell never left the room, even though the room was scrubbed town and aired.
The dogs were very smelly and they had fleas, so we...

However, as a published and honest journalist with a proven track record; I believe your review is a great exaggeration; because you don’t mention that you arrived 4 days earlier than planned.

How to get there
Airport: Tuxtla Gutierrez: 80.0 km
The address in SCLC is Calzada Ranulfo Tovilla #6, Rancho San Nicolas; also simply known as just Rancho San Nicolas #6.

The house is about 100 meters beyond the bridge on right on the main thoroughfare that leads from calle Francisco Leon to the ranch. There is a street light outside and my door should also be lit.

The property is gated to the street before the ranch with a high stone wall trimmed in orange, with a huge dark colored wooden garage sized gate and a smaller like wooden pedestrian door next to it; there is a square talavera tile with a number 6 next to gates. Also an oval one that says 'cuidado con el perro', just a warning for strangers, since I have the friendliest golden retriever you can imagine named Ginger....
