Very beautiful house with more things included than I could have imagined. I left yesterday and I already miss the place! It is fully furnished and has an excellent view of lake patzcuaro. Good management, very friendly, and very easy to check in and out. I have many pictures of the the yard and house that I'd be happy to share with anyone who would like to see them.

The house is wonderful...location not what I expected.
Maps of the area would be great...it was cold and the property manager never told us how to turn on the gas (propane) heaters.

Management response:

Thank you for your feedback. I will pass it on to the property manager regarding the propane heaters. Have a great day. Joe
