We live in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood with a beautiful view of Lake chapala and the mountains of northern Mexico. Lake Chapala is said to have one of the best year round climates in the world. Our winters are mild and our summers are even better. Our hottest time of the year is mid April through mid June, but even then it's very comfortable with low humidity. Mid November through mid January is the coldest time of the year and some people wear long pants. Lake Chapala is tourist area for Mexicans and there are also 10,000 fulltime english speaking expats from around the world living here.

The space

We have a spacious one bedroom casita with one bathroom and a small but usable kitchen. It has a private patio overlooking a beautiful heated swimming pool that is of course open to our guest. There are fans in every room. The casita has been remodeled to modern standards and has a nice Mexican vibe.

Guest access

The casita is one level but you must go down a flight of stairs to access it and another flight of stairs to access the pool. It is not wheelchair accessible.


Currently we are on vacation and will post better pictures when we get home. We live full time in the house on the property and the casita has only been used by friends and family. We have not rented it out. We are looking for reciprocal exchanges that would be in our primary home which is also one bedroom but could include the casita or non reciprocal that would just be the casita. We have two small and very friendly Chihuahuas that love everyone! If we are traveling and you are staying we would need you to love and care for out dogs. We also have a lovely garden that would need to be watered occasionally but we have a gardener who comes weekly to do everything else. We also have a maid who comes weekly. And there is a pool service that come twice a week to keep the pool sparkling clean.We pay for all of them while we travel. If you are staying in the casita it is $5.00 US (100 pesos) to have it cleaned. (We do not clean the casita weekly, but we have it cleaned before every stay)

We live about 5 minutes from Chapala, Mexico and 30 minutes from the Guadalajara airport. There are two hotels close to the neighborhood. in the neighborhood there are about 120 houses. Many of them are vacation homes. it is very quiet but only a short drive or bus ride to get to town. The Lake Chapala area and our neighborhood are very safe.

Getting around

It's a 15 minute walk to the closest bus stop. We go into town almost daily and would be happy to take guest with us. Currently it cost about $5.00 US (100 pesos) to take a cab one way into Ajijic. If we are traveling at the time of your stay a car maybe available. There are local car rental agency's that are very affordable. (not at the airport, those are very expensive.) We can put you in touch with them.
