I have got some extremely nice and economical suites and apartments in El Centro that are available for both short and long-term.
These are beautifully decorated, in a very good location that accepts pets. these places have literally everything included, just bring your backpack or suitcase.
Amenities include all utilities, including internet, linens and towels, all dishes, free use of washer and dryer, access to a big salon for which you can have get-togethers and small parties, or if you just want to sit and watch life from the balcony. Contracts are available short to long term.
This is a very special property with extremely professional and friendly landlords.
