Our homey and charming adobe house and its old style Indian wood cabin are comfortably arranged for family and friend gatherings. Relax and immerse yourself in a tranquil rural life community surrounded by cactuses, magueyes, and magnificent views.
The country home has a set of three houses in the middle of a 10 hectares property and beautiful scenery. It fits comfortably up to 10 people in different arrangements. The first house, an adobe and clay building, contains the kitchen with all the necessary utensils and electric appliances, the dining room that sits comfortably ten people, the living room with a fire place and a TV with a DVD player and a complete library with art and natural photo books, as well as three additional corners, one for playing table games, another one that we call it the observation corner, with a bar, a potent telescope and a beautiful view, which is great for reading and for having a nice glass of wine, and a third one, a small living room with another chimney and a comfy rocking chair for a good conversation. It is arranged in such a way that diverse activities can happen at the same time in the different corners of the house. On the top floor of that building we have the visitors room with two double rooms and a complete bathroom. It is the room with the best view. The second house, also made out of adobe and clay materials, is the Master Bedroom. It has one king size bed, a queen size sofa bed, a fireplace, a walking closet and a complete bathroom. The third house is an old style wood cottage using the construction style of the Purépecha Indians to the north. It has no nails and a beautiful smell. It has a ground floor with a small common area, two beds (a single and a double), and a complete bathroom. The attic has also two beds (also a single and a double).
Guests, if they tell me in advance, might have access to Cantalagua Hotel Services (10 minutes from the house) including its Golf course, restaurants, basketball courts, and swimming pools, as well as massage services and SPA.
We will leave guests alone. We live 2 hours away from El Maguey. There is a guard that takes care of the property (10 hectares of land) that lives with his family in a small house by the main entrance to the premises (200 meters from the guest area). If you are staying for more than a week and you want our support for arranging and planing day travels to different nearby places and amenities I will always be available via chat or email and I might receive you at your arrival to give you important tips, information and help you plan your stay and relate to neighbors and key people in the area. .
The nearest town, Contepec, has a clean and functional traditional market, a convenient store and several stores, a taxi stand, a very active Catholic Church and simple medical services, including a couple of dentists and veterinarians. It has pharmacies which have in stock most regular medicines and drugs and a handful of simple restaurants. Half an hour from the house by car, you will find a larger city that is Atlacomulco in the State of Mexico with big supermarkets, cinemas, hospitals and a large set of stores for any need.
We would like our guests to treat with courtesy our neighbors and house workers and with care and respect the things and books in the house as well as the natural components of the magnificent scenery. For security reasons and due to the odor that smoking leaves in the insides, It is strictly forbidden to smoke inside the houses or cabin, . In the dry season it is very important to be careful with dropping cigarettes or matches in the grass or making fires, since there is a risk that a fire might spread in the property.
Pets are allowed in the house as long as they do there needs outside.
To get cleaning services as well as simple cooking, will cost an additional $250 Mexican pesos a day that will be paid directly in the premises.
I am a Mexican national however I have lived 10 years in the US (New York and California) and 4 years in Montreal, Canada. I have traveled arround the world and enjoy good conversations, beautiful views and a good wine. I use our Maguey Propierty for getting together with my family and friends, and after 11 years of doing so I really relax and enjoy it every time. I would love to share it with other people from around the world and show you how a few days here can really bond families and give you the right perspective and energy you need in life. El Maguey ia not just a vacation, it is an experience.
