Ajijic house description

My one level secure house is located in the quiet, tree-lined residential area of lower La Floresta , just to the east of Ajijic and about 6 big blocks from Lake Chapala Society. I’m walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the Lake Chapala Society. My address is Paseo de las Canoas 22 Unit 1.

My 1200 square foot freshly painted house has a mountain view and the solar panels heated pool and property are surrounded by beautiful gardens and mature trees. Four homes share the pool and some of my neighbors like to party.

My open living room-dining-kitchen is great for entertaining and just a sliding glass door away to the exterior patio and pool. I've just purchased a new leather couch with footstool for the living room and moved my orange loveseat to the front bedroom. My fireplace smokes so do not use. I use two space heaters when it gets cold. The spacious 2 bedrooms have queen beds and lots of closet space in built in closets. Both baths are marble, and one is ensuite.

The laundry room has a washer and dryer with area to hang up clothes, with instant hot water, Mexican water pressure system. C on the taps means HOT not cold as in the US and Canada. It's very easy to forget and turn the wrong tap on, then get frustrated that there's no cold water. I've done it myself. The instant hot water was just serviced and it running great. I also installed filtration which I use.

I have a plastic round table with umbrella on the patio for your use with 8 stackable chairs. I also have 2 chaise lounges for you to use by the pool.

I have a DISH satellite system for the two TV’s and two DVD players and one also plays CDs.

All rooms have with high vaulted ceilings, cupola, and fans. My house is one of 4 homes that surround and share the pool. Parking is off street directly in front of my house and utilities (electricity, propane, telephone/internet, satellite, weekly housekeeper and gardener/pool man) are included in the rent.

My garage is too small for a car. Some times, in heavy rains, the water may collect in the driveway even though there's a drain. Ventura, my handyman, will clearing the drain, should that occur.

I have a property manager in Ajijic, Victor, who should be contacted, 766 3320, if there are problems and some thing doesn't work. I wish for your stay to be perfect and I can not fix problems from Canada. If, for some reason you don't want to contact Victor, you can contact me, by email.

My house is an old house, located in Mexico, not the US and not Canada, and built to Mexican standards and water pressure. Being in Mexico, we have rain that can effect the satellite, the phone, and the internet. The receivers to the satellite should never be tuned off or the satellite cannot find them.

La Floresta has cobblestone streets, gorgeous mature trees and has its own private 24/7 security service. At the border of Ajijic and La Floresta, one street is converted to an open marker on Wednesday.

                  About the owner: Some friends retired Ajijic because of the mild climate and found it to be true!

                  Why the Owner Chose Ajijic:
                  I didn't look to buy a rental, I was looking to buy a home. Then, I needed to come back to the US and Canada for my tropical life has been put on hold.
