About

This is a lovely, fully furnished 2 bdrm/2 bath apt. with an amazingly warm and inviting vibe in centrally located, fun Col. Roma. Beautiful, bright, and unique, with skylight terrace, hardwood floors, exposed brick, Mexican tiles, and original artwork (including a painting by famous Mexican artist Alfredo Zalce). It's in a great walking neighborhood with an enormous and wonderful market 1 block away for fresh fruits/vegetables/seafood/meat/dairy (my mother calls it her "second refrigerator"), and very close to many public transportation options (2 subway lines, 2 Metrobus lines, Ecobici). Just a few blocks from Parque México, which has a dedicated dog park and exercise equipment. Easy access to UNAM, downtown, Condesa, and the Roma Norte corridor (we're in Roma Sur, but at the very north of it). LOTS of dining and drinking options in walking distance, from hole-in-the-wall Argentinian eateries to Michelin-star restaurant Pujol. Vegan tacos, Thai, Lebanese, regional Mexican food from Yucatán and Hidalgo, French haute cuisine, fusion... you name it, you'll find it! The apartment is a truly unique and uncommonly lovely space. At once laid back and elegant, it's on the top floor of a house designed by architect Ricardo Rivas (best known for the Cárcamo de Dolores building and fountain designed in conjunction with Diego Rivera in Chapultepec). It was remodeled by my father (also an architect), enclosing a balcony to make an interior terrace with skylights, and adding beautiful hardwood floors, an open kitchen, and Mexican tiled bathrooms and sinks. There is an amazing amount of natural light and it's very cozy and inviting... everyone who visits remarks on what a good feel it has. The second bedroom doubles as an office (huge, comfortable work desk; futon for reading, double bed in loft). The location can't be beat and the apartment is not in an apartment building, so you have the added benefit of only having one "neighbor" downstairs... my mother. Washer and dryer in apartment. Access to roof area for smoking, if needed (no smoking indoors). Bedroom 1: huge closet with built in dresser, double bed, attached bathroom with shower, exterior sink/mirror, mini writing desk and bookshelf. Bedroom 2: dresser, closet, loft bed with memory foam mattress topper as bedding, double bed-sized futon under loft, large L-shaped desk with filing cabinet, bathroom with shower, exterior sink/mirror. Accommodates up to 6 people, ideal for 2. There is one bedroom and a second bedroom/study with a double loft bed and double futon below the loft bed for accommodating friends and family who may come visit you. Ask about pricing for stays shorter than 9 months. More pictures on the Airbnb listing (but please contact me here as pricing is different due to Airbnb fees!).
