  • Description


    Experience small Mexican town living. This is good for a couple with 2 children and the weary traveler. Need someone to house sit my parents home in a quiet small town in the Altos de Jalisco region. Town is called Pegueros. Peaceful living. You have two room available in the bottom half of the house. One bathroom. You will be there on your own however need cleaning occasionally picking up after yourself sweeping and mopping upstairs and downstairs, cleaning kitchen and so forth just cleaning after yourself. We will have occasional work done around the house like repairs and so forth
    town 1 hour drive from Guadalajara and is 15 minutes from Tepatitlan which is a bigger town almost like city where there are nightclubs shopping food market and a bigger social atmosphere. Yet it still holds its old values like mid day siestas! Can catch the bus many hours of the day or a taxi that is in town as well.
    Town people are very friendly.

    This is an opportunity for you to rest. Might be tough if your on the move a lot and like to party this is a peaceful town. Days may seem long. The townspeople are very hard working and many work in their farms around he town and youth go off to schools many in college in Tepatitlan or work there as well
    Experience being a resident in a small town vibe.

    Need help with deep cleaning the house. Sweeping and mopping upstairs, stairway and downstairs.This Needs to be repeated as house gets dusty from being vacant for the majority of the time. Need the house to be occupied and being discreet about it. Absolutely no drugs -no marijuana- around the house and do not invite that type of atmosphere there by buying it ! With the drug situation in Mexico we do not want to attract that atmosphere especially in this neighborhood where residents know each other. Need help dusting the house. Sweep and mop upstairs and downstairs. Sweep and mop clean windows in the front porch as well. Clean windows and Wash the curtains. Wash the dishes sweep and mop stairs. might be dusty when you arrive And that’s what we need help with cleaning. Might seem like a lot but you can do this at your own pace while you are there. Planning to rent the rooms. And I would like your opinion of your stay there. Clean the rooms and if it rents need you to wash sheets and towels.

  • Accommodation


    You have the option of sleeping in the two lower bedrooms. Each one has a full size bed. Bathroom downstairs and a big kitchen , living room and dining room. The house is a big place for a couple or family. The upstairs this is where all my family stays when we go. So you can sleep in the bottom bedrooms. Please respect my fathers house.
    No WiFi unfortunately all I can offer is to pay the electricity bill.
