Power: We are on a solar power system at the villa, so please be mindful of the fact that electricity is not unlimited. Power is great during the day, but once the sun goes down make sure to unplug unused chargers and other electronics. If you leave the villa, please turn everything off to allow the batteries to reach full charge. The system absolutely cannot handle air conditioner units, and continuous fan usage can drain the batteries. It is possible to run out of power overnight, if that happens, we will send our property manager out to start the generator and restore power. The earliest this can be done is 8am. We will remotely monitor the power supply and update you as needed if it looks like you’ll run out of power.
Generator: Guest safety is our number one priority. When the generator is in use, the garage door must be open for ventilation.
Heating/Cooling: We have fans located in each bedroom for warm nights and extra blankets in each room for cooler evenings. The solar power system cannot handle air conditioning or swamp coolers.
Weather: October through May - Highs range from around 70 degrees up to the mid 80's, with lows in the 40's and 50's. June through September - This area is extremely hot during summer months, with high temperatures ranging from around 90 up to over 100 degrees. The lows are typically in the 70's. The villa does not have air conditioning.
Curtains: All windows have blackout curtains. On hot days, closing the curtains first thing in the morning really makes a big difference. Once the sun is not directly shining in, open them back up to enjoy the amazing views.
Water: The villa has running water, but it all has to be trucked in to our community, so we try to be conscious about consumption. We provide bottled water for drinking, cooking, and ice. Tap water is for dishes, showers and washing up.
Plumbing: In Mexico, generally toilet paper goes into a wastebasket next to the toilet. Our villa is no exception. It is very important not to flush any toilet paper or sanitary supplies. We are on a septic system that is not designed for them. Always make sure there is a bag in the garbage can. Extra bags are available in all bathrooms.
Stove: We have a propane stove. Turn on the burner you want to use and use our lighter to ignite the flame.
Bedding: Bedding for Murphy Bed is located in the closet next to it.
Bedding for the 2 living room Sofa Beds is kept in the white drawers in the main floor bedroom closet.
Each room has an extra set of sheets, pillows and a blanket for your convenience.
Fuel: Mulege has two Pemex gas stations.
Garbage:Please remove all garbage at the end of your stay and place it in the garbage can in the garage. If it gets too full please reach out so we can take care of it right away.
Laundry:The Villa is equipped with a washer and dryer in the garage. These should only be used during daylight hours due to the significant power consumption.
TV:There is a Roku Smart TV in the living room. Feel free to login to your streaming services during your stay.
Beach Access: There are many beaches nearby for you to enjoy. Playa Santispac, Posada Concepcion, Playa Escondido, Playa los Cocos, Playa el Burro, Playa el Coyote and Playa el Requeson are all within a 10 minute drive. There is also a beach below the Villa that is only accessible via the water. The easiest way to get there is to put kayaks in the water at Posada Concepcion or Playa Santispac and paddle over to the beach.
Beach Towels: Striped beach towels are provided in a basket near the pool table. White towels need to stay in the villa.
Insects: Depending on the time of year, you may encounter small bugs outside. They are usually most active at dawn and dusk. To help with this, we have provided bug spray for you. Please keep screens closed to prevent them entering the house.
Grocery Stores: There are a few small grocery stores in Mulege where you can get food, drinking water, alcohol and other snacks, but we do recommend stocking up at one of the bigger stores in Loreto before driving up to the villa.
Money: Mulege is currently without a bank or ATM, so we recommend that you bring pesos and US dollars with you. Many places around Mulege do not accept cards, so cash is definitely the way to go. The grocery stores and gas station do take debit and credit cards and offer limited cash back.
First Aid: We have provided a basic first aid kit for you. It is located in the main floor bathroom medicine cabinet.
Emergency: Dial 911 for emergency services. There is a small medical clinic in Mulege, and a hospital in Loreto.
