Furniture needed to be replaced, yard needed to be cleaned-up, bathtubs were stained, and one needs to be in pretty good shape to climb the hill and then all of the stairs. Friend was shocked (mildly) in pool--it was repaired soon afterwards. During rainy season, lots of leaking. But it's a large, private home w/individual suites and basic necessities. The casita is QUITE rustic. Have stayed in less expensive rentals in SMA that were much more luxuriously appointed. I was disappointed.
