    "When my wife and I arrived at the casita, we expected something nice...what we got was over-the-top wonderful. The casita was beautiful. It was large, well furnished and included everything a person needed to live. Our host, Hal, treated us as if we were family. He showed us the area and even took us to a couple of parties...which we enjoyed thoroughly. The only negative is the long hill leading up to the house. If you don't have a car, and are in good shape, you'll have no problem. Otherwise, be ready to take a taxi back from the village which is about a mile away. The owners two little dogs, Teddy and Dottie, were delightful and not at all bothersome. Though this vacation rental is excellent for anyone of any age...I would say that it is most perfect for a younger couple that want a private, romantic getaway."

  • This House Sparkles!

    "We stayed in this house for most of July and enjoyed it thoroughly. The house feels very new and was very well-appointed with just about every convenience you'd want...blender, toaster, microwave, plenty of cookware, glassware, and dishware, dishwasher, washer and dryer, plenty of fluffy towels. The owner and her brother, who lives nearby and is quickly available to help if you need him, are very conscientious about providing you a good stay. We had an incident on a Sunday afternoon where a power surge blew out the microwave and, right afterwards, the electricity, and he came right away. There was no way to get it fixed on a Sunday, but he arranged to have the electricity repaired by Monday morning. We were leaving overnight that day anyway, but when we returned Monday afternoon, everything was fixed and there was a new microwave. A gardener and a pool guy come every week, so the grounds are well-kept. The pool is small, but great for cooling off in the late afternoon with a beautiful view of the mountain behind the house. It it also very private, especially if the second house on the property is unoccupied. The house is a little out of the way for those without a car, but the bus stop is a two-minute walk away. We didn't take the bus, but they look nice and are very frequent. There is a 7-11 close by for morning coffee, a couple of eateries, and an interesting consignment shop. Those who really like to walk -- or perhaps walk one way into town and taxi back to the house -- or who don't mind taking the bus will not really need a car. That said, if you are used to having a car, you may want to keep one there; parking is easy and secure right next to the house. And while I'm not sure about how to rent a bicycle in the area, biking would be a great way to go because of the bike path that runs along the highway from Chapala to Ajijic and beyond. The neighborhood seemed pretty quiet except for the dogs, as someone mentioned. There was some barking at night, but it seemed rather typical to me. A dog hears some noise and balls, another starts to bark, and so on...and a couple minutes later they stop. In cooler months with windows closed, you wouldn't notice much. It was rainy when we were there so we did not have the dust another reviewer spoke of, and while some vacant lots had a little trash here and there, it wasn't bad. The area is not plush, but it was fine. I'm out of room now, so I'll close by saying we loved this house!"

  • Highly recommended

    "Prior to renting this beautiful home, I read all of the reviews. Prior to arriving, both Patrick and Rolly were very helpful right from the start. Once I finally arrived, I met Patrick who was so wonderful and wanted to make sure I got the most out of my stay. The house is more beautiful than the pictures show and has everything you could possibly need. I would recommend this place to anyone and when I go back, I hope there is availability because this place books up far in advance and now I know why. Thanks Patrick and Rolly."

  • 2 wonderful weeks

    "My wife and I had a wonderful 2 week stay in Casa Fred. Our hosts Chad and Toni were very helpful in every way. We fell in love with the Casa and the area in general. During our stay we had friends over for a cookout on the back patio. They were impressed with the Casa and the value it gives. We would certainly recommend for others to stay in the home. It was close to restaurants and shops. We wished we lived there!"
