"Oh, how I love this house! I spotted it online when I was googling Zihuat before our trip. It's about 40 minutes south of Z, belongs to American fashion designer Betsey Johnson. We thought we'd go for a drive (thanks for the car Pablo!) and see if we could spot it. The next thing I know we'd talked our way in the front door and were given a guided tour by the caretaker. It is magnificent, if a little faded; two pools, main house plus 3 casitas. There are a few bucket list items that could be crossed off by buying it. Did I mention it's for sale?"
and again in Spanish:
¡Me encanta este casa! Lo he visto en el internet cuando estaba googling Zihuat antes de nuestra viaje. Es aproximadament cuarenta minutos sud de Z, y la dueña es Betsey Johnson, la diseñadora famosa de eeuu. Pensamos que hayamos ido a dar un paseo en coche (¡gracias por el coche Pablo!) para buscarlo. Y de repente, estabamos en el tour con el vigilante que vive alli. Es magnifico, la casa, si un poco descolorido: dos piscinas, una casa y tres casitas. Hay algunas cosas en mi 'lista antes de partir' que podrian ser tachados si lo compraríamos. Y ¡está en vente!
Ok, I'll stop torturing the Spanish language. I know there's a million mistakes here. Please feel free to tell me. I'm wanting to get a better understanding of Spanish grammar.
The house really is amazing. We spent a couple of days thinking we were going to put an offer in. What held me back is the fact that it needs a LOT of work, and soon. And it may be a little too remote for us. A girl can dream though.
