House, 1 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps
You know Ajijic has some of the best year round weather in the
world, but experiencing the 400 year old cobblestone streets of this
charming Village first hand is even better! It's about location,
location, location. More than climate and charm, this quaint Mexican
Village has the services and amenities that you would expect in a
modern luxury resort.
Only 30 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport, Ajijic is
home to the largest U.S. and Canadian expat community in the world.
Why rent a room or pay the expensive rates at a B&B when you
can LIVE for a little while in the most desirable part of Ajijic, in
a quiet area near the center of town. There is nothing like the charm
and convenience of living in the Village! One block from
the Lake, one block from the Wednesday Farmers Market,(tianguis) two
blocks from inexpensive bus service if you care to venture out of town.
Only 4 blocks from the Lake Chapala Society and six blocks from the
Plaza. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, cinema, live
entertainment,florist,antique shops, unique galleries and
artisan shops within a short walk. No car necessary! A fifteen minute
stroll will get you anywhere and everywhere! This charming 1100 sq.
ft. two story guest house with open floor plan is light and
airy, tastefully decorated with lots of Mexican folk art, bright
colors and plenty of character. With beautiful tile work thoughout,
this darling casita has it's own privacy wall and features a
comfortable living and dining room, ideal for reading or watching T.V.
There's also a fireplace and a Luis Barragan floating stairway leading to the second floor, and french doors that open onto your own private patio/terrace where you can enjoy coffee or a margarita at a table with four chairs. A desk for your laptop and high speed wireless internet are provided. You'll find a television. A game cabinet, books and even art supplies are available upon request as well as a B-B-Q. In the kitchen with lovely tile countertops, cooking for yourself is a snap with the fully stocked kitchen, including glassware, dishes,pots and pans, but with all the nearby wonderful places to eat, you may never use anything but the microwave! Dressing rooom with huge closet is connected to the downstairs guest bath with shower, located off the first floor sleeping area with 6 foot long sofa and a double day bed. Ceiling fans on both levels. Bath with shower and tub is ensuite with the upstairs Master featuring a firm Queen bed, a wall of closet, a second fireplace and a sitting room that leads to a large terrace where you can relax or bask in the sun. The laundry room, with a modern stackable washer and dryer is easily accessible across the flagstone terrace for you to do all of your laundry.

Lovely little house
We stayed for a month in this great home. The location and neighborhood are perfect. One block from the lake and few blocks from the Wednesday market. Supermarket is 4 blocks away and Walmart is within walking distance. The house is very clean and well equipped. Everything worked well, fast WiFi, great filtered tap water, good water pressure, washer and dryer. The landlady was just wonderful. Very easy to get ahold of if any thing comes up. Sent us E-mails of things we might like to do. We are recently retired active couple from Mn looking for somewhere to spend the winters. Ajijic has so much to offer. We hiked with the hiking group, took cooking classes, ate at great restaurants, walked on the Lake Walk (Malecon), and watched pageants in the village square. The locals are very friendly and many speak english, but as in most places it is aprecitated if you try to speak some Spanish. The expats are very helpful and welcoming. We will definitely be going back to Ajijic. Oh and the weather is perfect!
Wonderful Ajijic experience
This was my second stay. Do you come back to a place you don't like? I love it here! This casita is conveniently located, so you can be in the center with a 10 minute walk but sleep in a quieter area. You will hear dogs but HEY, this is Mexico! Ajijic has some of the best restaurants anywhere and they are, mostly, within a shirt walk from this rental. With the exception of food, this casita is 100% ready: unpack, shop and you'll feel like you're home! It is also very secure and in a safe neighborhood. If by chance anything needs attention you can be assured that it will be handled ASAP. Looking for quiet, relaxing, and yet close to all amenities with a great person to rent from? This might be your place!
Wonderful Ajijic Experience
As first time visitors to Ajijic we were extremely happy to have rented from Georgette and Hardwick! The rental was all we could have asked for; everything we needed less food. It's within walking distance to almost anywhere in the village but bring sturdy shoes as the streets are cobblestone! It's less than a block to the Wednesday open air market where you can reasonably purchase almost all the food you'll need. Many great restaurants within five or six blocks. Only two blocks to the water. Georgette is a very gracious and helpful hostess who went beyond expectations to make us feel comfortable and at home. If you need something larger she probably can help you so don't be afraid to call. Thank you Georgette for a wonderful vacation!

This cute casita is only minutes away from any point in the village, close to amenities and steps away from beautiful LaFloresta. The open concept first floor is well furnished and maintained. The second floor bedroom, sitting room and ensuite bathroom is bright and opens unto a large patio. The compact kitchen is well equipped. There is a TV on each floor. Both bathrooms are spacious and there's lots of hot water. Georgette is a wonderful host.
