If you see that all our units are occupied for the dates you need, please give us a call because occasionally we have last minute cancellations. If the apartment you wish to rent is occupied for one or two weeks, we can temporarily place you in another apartment during that time while you wait for your apartment become vacant.
If you stay longer than eight weeks, the rent is by month. However, the payment has to be done by checks only. No credit cards
We strongly believe that through education we can change the world. For this reason, part of you payment will be used to help rural schools in Aldea Francisco Vela, Nuevo Palmarcito, Caserio Guadalupe and La Pedrera Community Project to run the computer lab and pay for internet services. The Secretary of Education mandates computer classes, which require parents from every community in the country to pay $100.00 a year per child to learn computer skills. With your help students can take these classes at their local school and no longer have to pay for private lessons. We have successfully donated more than 60 computers and 20 musical instruments for the school band. With over 400 children now able to access computer classes, the computers we have donated have helped families save approximately $40,000 collectively each year. Your support is greatly appreciated!
