NOTE: The top floor is a private casita/apartment and is available for additional price. Although it is a separate unit, access to it is from the same entrance and then from the second floor landing. It is usually used by us or our manager. If having the house exclusively to yourself is a deal breaker, please inquire as to rental ($125 night) or whether it is currently occupied. Our guests have appreciated having us or our manager on hand for trouble-shooting or travel planning. Please see listing for TECHO DEL SUENOS. Sleeps 2-3.
