A new lease with a different house

We have been in San Nicolas for 1 year and 4 months.  We still love our village life.  There are many things to learn here.  Like our 1 year old house that we moved into when we arrived, we really liked the looks of the inside and the outside.  But unfortunately, it was in a state of disrepair.  Specifically, the roof leaked in 4 different areas.  Now I am not saying drip, drip, drip.  I am talking small waterfalls.  Of course, we complained to the owner.  All she ever did was to put a band-aid on it.  There were other problems with the house too.   So we looked for another home in the village.  The very first one we looked at was the right house for us.  It was a 3 bedroom and 3 bath home with a split floor plan.  The house was recently built with new everything.  All the finish work is top quality.  We are paying $600 US every month with a one year lease.

Living room with our 33 year old T. V.  We have a Boveda ceiling that is brick and mortar.  No rebar or reinforcement of any kind.  I'm hoping we have no earthquakes!
Dining room.  Glass is underneath the table cloth.  Mexicans really like glass tables. All the windows and sliders are bordered with black metal.
Looking into the kitchen from the living room.  The kitchen has a great view of the lake.
Master bedroom.  All rooms have ceiling fans.  No air conditioning or heating.  The weather is temperate all year.
Master bathroom with spa tub.  This is a real luxury in Mexico.
These are 2 of the 4 skylights throughout the house.  We have an outdoor concrete stairway that leads to the roof.
We have great views of the lake from every part of the roof.
