About León Martí

Hello, I´ve been studying and working abroad for a long time and just recently came back to my home 'town' Mexico City. I lived in Cancun, Madrid, Munich, Akumal and Connecticut. I am really happy to be back home and working on audiovisual productions, which turned from my hobby into my job. Although I don´t have a big family we balance it out with a lot of friends. I am currently using my spare time to travel through Mexico and get to know my Country better.

León Martí purchased this apartment in 1975

Why León Martí chose Mexico City

This property was acquired by my parents and passed down to me. I was born on this property so I do have a lot of love for it. As years went by and the city grew I was fortunate that San Miguel Chapultepec got to be one of the most beautiful residential areas and in one of the best places, since around it, many neighborhoods like Polanco, Condesa and Roma got really popular. San Miguel Chapultepec kept its quiet residential mood and it´s green surroundings. Take a look at the satellite picture.

What makes this apartment unique

The best thing the apartment has is the beautiful panoramic view to Castillo de Chapultepec and it´s high ceiling ample spaces.

Best View Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we take our nieces and nephews on vacation over Spring Break. This year was Mexico City. What a spectacular place for a fun exploration of Mexico City. The apartment is huge--with a fantastic open living room surrounded by glass--great views of Chapultepec and the skyscrapers of Polanco. There is also an outdoor patio. The neighborhood is quiet even though it is so centrally located. No need for a car as the metro station (easy connection to Centro Historic) is only one block away, Condesa (great restaurants) is only a ten-minute walk away, and Polanco (great shopping and restaurants) is only a twenty-minute walk away. The afternoons were spent in the apartment watching the rain, lightening, and thunder storms--what a perfect perch! The place is safe, clean, and very comfortable. We are planning our next visit already!

Unique experience

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family visit to Mexico City and this apartment was a wonderful base. Close to the Chapultepec park, and the sites therein, we could walk easily to the park and enjoyed that freedom with 3 boys in tow. Also located near a metro stop which was terrific. We used Uber or the metro with ease.

The apartment was kept clean by a lovely housekeeper, and we easily used the well-appointed kitchen. The apartment was one flight of stairs up from the 6th floor elevator stop, and with the height you could see Chapultepec Castle and the many tree canopies just below. The sense of openness was lovely after returning from a day out exploring, the various windows opened easily to allow the breeze to cool the apartment after sunny daytime weather. With our kids, the washing machine and dryer were also very useful! And easy to operate. My kids loved the big beds, and the corner store.

In sum, a unique place, very convenient and would highly recommend.

Ideal location for a family visit to Mexico City

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with my wife and three teenage daughters, we have stayed at HomeAway properties across the United States and around the world. We have never stayed anywhere better than this penthouse apartment. The wide open common space, with wonderful views of the Bosque de Chapultepec, is conducive to gathering and relaxing together. One evening we shut out the lights and watched a thunderstorm roll over the city. Wonderful art and decorations adorn all the rooms. The three bedrooms are private and comfortable, the kitchen and three bathrooms clean and functional.

The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of key sights like the Museo Nacional de Antropología and the Castle of Chapultepec National Museum of History, and easy taxi or Uber distance of everything else. There are convenience stores for drinks and small items within a block or two, and supermarkets within 15 minutes walk.

Arrangements with the owner were simple and straightforward, and the housekeeper who visited midweek was helpful, even with some of our laundry. A private security guard is always on duty, which makes coming and going easy and safe.

We were interested in a trip to the pyramids of Teotihuacan, and the owner suggested Marlene Ehrenberg (http://www.marlene-ehrenberg.com.mx/mapa-ing.htm), who studied archaeology and once worked at the site. A great suggestion which made for an informative and memorable day.

The penthouse apartment is located on the seventh floor, and the elevator reaches the sixth floor, so climbing one flight of stairs is necessary. Within the apartment, a step or two separate some of the living areas. The wifi works well.

Highly recommended!

Wunderbare Tage in Mexico D.F.

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement ist einfach ein Traum. Wir genossen die Aussicht über einen Teil der Stadt (vom Esstisch aus sieht man sogar das Schloss von Chapultepec) vor allem auch in der Nacht mit all den wunderbaren Lichtern. Das Appartement ist genau wie beschrieben, sauber und sehr geräumig. Wir, als 5 köpfige Familie fanden alle unseren Lieblingsplatz. Dona Inez ist sehr hilfreich und kam 2x die Woche. Sie hat uns auch einmal ein mexikanisches Frühstück gemacht und Reis gekocht damit wir einen Vorrat hatten. Vom Appartement aus kann man zu Fuss die interessanten Bezirke Condesa und Roma erkunden (die geführten Touren mit dem Tram sind sehr interessant) und gute Restaurants entdecken. Wir fuhren mit der U-Bahn nach Polanco und auch zum Zocalo und dem historischen Zentrum. Wir können einen Aufenthalt in dieser sehr interessanten Stadt nur empfehlen und natürlich auch das tolle Appartement von Leon. Schade, konnten wir ihn nicht persönlich kennen lernen aber er hat uns auch via Telefon sehr geholfen.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

Location by the park (Chapultepec) gave us great access to the castle and museum, plus the plush greenery in a major metropolitan center.

Location in the neighborhood with an Oxxo corner shop and other smalls stores nearby, plus a subway stop (Juanacatlán) down a lighted street three blocks away was a bonus. We were fit enough for the six block walk to Soriana (grocery store) and back home with groceries. The apartment has an elevator for the first six flights but the last one is on stairs, easy. Some of our sturdy crew eschewed the elevator for stairs down and up most of the time. Esperanza pasteleria and bakery was a great find for savory sandwiches on the eastern point of the Bosque (by Metro Chapultepec), although for sweet pan dulce we preferred the bakery just past the metro stop on José Vasconcelos.

The location also meant a straight subway shot to downtown and easy walks to the Roma and Condesa neighborhoods.

Appointments in the home were great for us to cook three or four nights during the week, and beds were firm but comfortable enough for our crew. Leon was very easy to do business with and quickly responded when we had questions in booking.

Wow! Awesome penthouse perfect for large family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at our stay in this large penthouse. Leon gave us very clear directions and we were met at the front as we were told. The front gatekeeper was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this property. We plan to stay there again in the future.
