Overview

Valle de Bravo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

PLEASE EMAIL ME. SINCE I DO NOT CHECK THE VRBO OR HOMEAWAY SITE OFTEN. Happy to serve you

This beautiful big house is in Mexico´s unique town Valle de Bravo, with a lovely view, several nice restaurants (French, Mexican and Italian) as well as restaurants for kids. Many different activities and sports available for all ages. The weather during the winter months is delicious, sunny and warm at midday, with nice cozy fireplace in the cooler evening.

There is a lot of space so 2 or 3 families can share and have privacy at the same time. The maid and the security person have worked for us for many years and are very well trained to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Very helpful with kids. Extra help can be hired at a very low cost and with absolute reliability.

The town is within walking distance so it makes it very interesting to go to the market early in the morning to shop for the day's food and enjoy many of the Mexican delicacies.

About Lorraine Keller

I am a single mother with 4 daughters. I have enjoyed this home I built for my family for many years, now due to a cancer treatment I need to rent it to have an extra income. I work at a shelter for poor girls of violent homes and teach meditation.

Lorraine Keller purchased this house in 1997

Why Lorraine Keller chose Valle de Bravo

This is a house I built for my family. I rent it to have an extra income for my family. It is located in one of the best areas of Valle de Bravo.

What makes this house unique

Maid service from 9am to 5 pm and babysitter service at an extra small cost. She cooks and cleans the house and kitchen, has worked for us for more than 8 years. T Within walking distance of the town. Wonderful view of the whole town. Wireless internet. Big garden and lovely terrace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Con gusto contesto: efectivamente la casa no es para personas mayores, ni con problemas de movilidad, eso lo aclaramos siempre que nos preguntan. El servicio de nuestros vigilantes es sólo de apoyo, no pretende ser un servicio del 100% del tiempo, se aclara que sólo ayuda a preparar comida y desayuno y limpieza general. Esto es con el fin de que los clientes no usen nuestros aparatos de cocina y lavandería para evitar desperfectos. La casa acaba de ser completamente revisada por un plomero y todo funciona bien. También hay sillas adicionales para que comodamente se puedan sentar 12 personas que es el cupo máximo. NUESTRO DESEO ES QUE TENGAN UNA DELICIOSA ESTANCIA !

Una experiencia inolvidable

  • 5 of 5

Esta casa tiene la màs bella vista de Valle, el personal es muy atento y amable, siempre tratan de resolver cualquier necesidad y la dueña siempre està accesible por whattsapp ! eso nos encanto, es muy amplia y la tienen muy limpia. Ya cuentan con sillas adicionales para sentar a 12 personas y los cuartos son espaciosos.

Se puede desayunar y comer en una amplia terraza que da a todo el lago y el pueblo. El pueblo queda caminando, por lo que es muy agradable no necesitar el coche para bajar al pueblo.

Cuentan con Internet lo cual es agradable en noches que uno quiere ver alguna película por Netflix.

Gracias por compartir y sobre todo por estar tan atentos a cualquier duda,

La comunicación con la dueña fue inmediata desde el principio. Nos envió el reglamento de la casa y algunos aspectos que debíamos tener en cuenta como por ejemplo que la casa tiene muchas escaleras y que debíamos llevar servilletas.

La vista de la casa es increíble al lago y al pueblo, también está muy cerca a este y se puede ir caminando.

En cuanto al mantenimiento de la casa tiene muchos puntos que le hacen falta como por ejemplo que las regaderas y los baños no funcionaban correctamente. También nos pasó dos veces en 4 días que nos quedamos sin agua y como el personal de apoyo no se encuentra todo el día disponible aunque viven ahí mismo, no tuvimos agua y no supimos de dónde se encendía la bomba.

Aunque la casa dice que es para 12 personas realmente es para 8 personas pues la vajilla y cubertería es solamente de 8 servicios igual que las sillas de la mesa.

Es recomendable también llevar algunos elementos de cuidado personal como por ejemplo jabón, pañuelos faciales y papel de baño.

El último día del año aunque se nos había informado que íbamos a tener al personal de apoyo, este sólo se presentó hasta las 4 de la tarde y el día primero del año no se presentaron a trabajar, día que también nos quedamos sin agua y al comunicárselo a la dueña ella tampoco sabía cómo encender la bomba del agua por lo que no tuvimos agua en todo el día ni servicio de limpieza.

La casa es muy bonita y cómoda pero es una pena que por el servicio baje la calificación a la casa.

Familia cin personas mayores y niños

  • 2 of 5

La comunicaciòn con la dueña maravillosa ese fué un factor para la renta de la casa. La casa tiene una vista espectacular de todo el pueblo y lago. La casa es muy grande, eramos 11 adultos y 5 niños pequeños y tuvimos varios contratiempos con la casa ya que le falta mucho mantenimiento y limpieza, algunos baños no sirve la regadera, o salía agua del wc, también deben indicar que no cuentan con cobertores para el frío de los cuartos. La pareja que ayuda es buenas personas pero no son muy acomedidas tienes que estar atras de ellos, y no te hacen el aseo de 4 días solo se hizo 2 días y eso solo hicieron camas y tiraron papeles de baño . Toman mucho tiempo para tomar sus alimentos , y cosas personales , mejor decir que la casa no cuenta con servicio y si requieren que se pague extra.

Al igual que mencionar que la casa no es apta para personas mayores y con problemas de rodilla o piernas son demasiadas escaleras y muy pesadas para ir a las recámaras y para la alberca.nosotros íbamos con 4 personas mayores y problemas de piernas ( las regaderas fue todo un problema muchas tienen para entrar una bardita que tienes que brincar). Y ademas de todo esto solo cuentan con 8 sillas literal del comedor que si queríamos estar en la terraza que es donde tiene una mega vista teníamos que estar bajando o subiendo nuestras propias sillas ya que nunca nos proporcionaron sillas para la terraza. Y en la zona de comedor donde pasaríanos la cena del 24 no tenía foco y tuvimos que usar una lámpara de mesa y estar a obscuras. Además de que no te dan papel de baño ni jabòn. El precio de la casa no es excesivo pero si debe tomar en cuenta estos pequeños grandes detalles que hacen a diferencia, debo comentar que no es la primera vez que rentamos casa en Valle y en esta es la única en la cual hemos visto muchas deficiencias y carencias.

Mi madre y un niño en las camas les pico algo que se llenaron de ronchas.

Además deben contemplar las personas que quieran rentarla que deben dar de comer alas pareja que cuida la casa como a su pequeño, cosa que no se dice. En fin tristemente una mala experiencia

Comfortable home with a view to die for!

  • 4 of 5

4 couples stayed here on a trip to see the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary nearby. The house is high on a hill with a fantastic view of the lake and town of Valle de Bravo from every room. Caretakers Iris and Benecio (who live on the property) were very gracious and helpful for all our needs. Iris bought groceries for us and cooked dinner for us 1 night, although we chose to eat out most of the time at the many wonderful restaurants in Valle. The 4 bedrooms are very comfortable, although one is primarily for children with bunk beds and 2 twin beds in a small room behind the bunk room. The master suite is 2 flights of stairs down from the main level and the 3 other bedrooms are 2 more flights down (a total of 53 steps) so beware if you have bad knees or walking problems. All floors are tiled, so you have to be careful about slipping. It was a bit of a challenge for some of us, but after the first few days, we seemed to adjust better to climbing the stairs. Good exercise! The pool (not heated) was another 2 levels below the bedrooms (total of 105 steps!) but we managed to make it down there once to sit around the pool in the lounge chairs. Fun to walk down the hill into town, but take a taxi back up to the house! Taxi is only 30 pesos ($2 US) each way and can take 4 people. The town of Valle de Bravo is a Pueblo Magico (Magical Town) designated by the Mexican government as an especially beautiful, quaint place to visit and it lives up to its designation with narrow cobblestone streets, all white with red tile roof buildings, a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and best of all the Piedra Herrada Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary just about 15-20 minutes outside of town. We were lucky to visit it on a sunny day so the monarchs would burst from their clusters on the trees and fly around in the mid-day sun. An amazing sight! Best to go around 10:30-11 am and be at the top of the mt. (2 kilometer hike) around noon or 1 pm when the sun is high in the sky. The walk up the mt. is steep and strenuous so I recommend hiring a horse for 150 pesos ($10). I thought I could walk it, but after a short distance, I opted for the horse. Walking back down was fun, though, if you don't want to take the horse again. All in all, the home was very comfortable and accommodating for all 8 of us. We had a little problem with the hot water the first day, but Benecio got things working. Have to let water run awhile to get hot in the lower bedroom showers.

Awesome views!

  • 4 of 5

The view of this property is outstanding, a great location, The staff, Rosita and Ruben did an awesome job. They helped us a lot and make us feel very comfortable like if we were in our own home. They keep the home very clean and neat, they made the home a great place to stay. The home needs renovation, particularly the bathrooms. We choose this home because the communication with the owner was great and the location. We recommend this Mexican style home but do not expect top of the line luxury.
