Recent Ajijic property reviews

  • 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."

  • Chuck and Sue W.

    "My wife and I spent our holiday experiencing two vastly different sides of Mexico. Our first week was in Puerto Vallarta, which certainly had a lot to offer. To be completely honest, however, we found Ajijic and Villa Tortuga completely enchanting and much more like a second home. The estate was everything we were promised, and more. Villa Tortuga is nothing short of a showplace, with the home and grounds immaculately kept. The staff were both friendly and helpful, and Georgina (the rental agent) had plenty of useful suggestions regarding local venues. As for Ajijic . . . well, this quaint town was exactly what we were hoping for. Even in January, the temperatures were favorable - typically reaching the mid-seventies during the day. Vallarta it wasn't, but if you want to see the REAL Mexico, the Lake Chapala region es muy bueno. Contrary to popular belief, Mexico is NOT crime-ridden. In fact, we wandered the streets and boardwalk every day, including after dark, and always felt completely safe. The town folk were extremely polite, gracious, and more than willing to help with anything. And, speaking of the boardwalk (or Malecon, as the locals know it) be sure to check out what became our favorite restaurant . . . "Yves". Incomparable views of the mountains and lake, great food, and prices that were beyond "reasonable". My fave . . . the Sonora Filet Mignon, cooked to perfection, with sides and a salad bar. All for about $11.00 US. For lunch, try the Sopa Azteca (Aztec soup). Hearty and delicious! An, if you happen to go, DO say "Hola" to your host, Yves, for Chuck and Sue ! ! ! Finally, you might want to spend an afternoon at Aguas Termales - a hot springs resort in nearby San Juan Cosala. It was a great experience and, again, very reasonably priced. We would absolutely recommend Ajijic and Villa Tortuga to anyone and everyone and very much look forward to returning ourselves!."

  • Best of Both Agendas!

    "For our first trip to Mexico, the thought of a resort left us cold...but with our lack of Spanish, we also knew we couldn't go full immersion. This has been the perfect blend. Hosts Lori and Brad made sure we had a safe ride from Guadalaraja, and gave us a personal tour of the town our first night in. And while they were always ready to answer any questions, we found we could travel and explore quite well by ourselves, even with our limited Spanish. And what an oasis it has been to return to this beautiful casita after our daily adventures! While we loved Ajijic, we loved it even more for being able to escape to the quiet, cool privacy of our own casita, complete with a solar heated pool and high speed interet. The ONLY negative was a neighbor's dog, who would on SOME nights randomly bark loudly just enough to wake us up....but from all our exploring of the area, this was a pretty minor offense, and easily solved with ear plugs. Don't let that small detail keep you from experiencing this delightful town from the great luxury of this hillside casita. It's been the best possible way to experience authentic Mexican cultural while still having comforts and luxuries. It has truly been the best of both worlds!"

  • a hidden gem

    "This is an unusually attractive property. It is clean, bright, spacious and, even though it is in the center of Ajijic, it is very quiet and private. It is close to everything, including the Lake. The furnishings are very comfortable and it has all the modern amenities. The waterfront nearby offers long scenic walks. There are many restaurants and dining areas. The owner is highly reliable, maintains the place to a high North American standard and is very responsive to anything the occupant needs. I would recommend this property to anyone."

Ajijic Travel Tips

Live Luxuriously with Ajijic Vacation Rentals

Ajijic is nestled on the banks of Lake Chapala in central Mexico, a picturesque town that’s a traveler’s delight. With Ajijic vacation rentals, you can take your trip to Mexico to the next level of luxury and enjoyment. Ajijic vacation houses allow you to live in a true home of your own (well, your own for a little while) with all the amenities therein. What better way to experience your vacation than to live like a real local?

Enjoy Lake Chapala Travel Destinations

Lake Chapala is circled by mountains, and the nearby big city of Guadalajara has a lower crime rate than capital Mexico City. Ajijic is 35 miles south of Guadalajara, so you can reach the big city while still staying peacefully removed from the hustle-bustle on your vacation. The Iztepete Pyramid is found in Guadalajara, an historic landmark that’s well over 2,000 years old. Lake Chapala travelers find that the scenery is breathtaking and the weather extremely pleasant—often warm and sunny throughout the year.

Ajijic is well-known for being home to local artists, many of whom own studios and shops for tourists to peruse. Baskets, blown glass, and ceramics are found at shops throughout the city, so you can return home with plenty of souvenirs. After a day of sightseeing, visit the Ajijic Grill before returning to Ajijic vacation rentals. Authentic Argentinean cuisine and a casual atmosphere have made the Ajijic Grill well-loved among locals and vacationers alike.

Find Ajijic Vacation Houses to Rent

Ajijic vacation houses give you the option of living in private luxury while you enjoy your Ajijic vacation. Renters will enjoy the peace and practicality of having one of many private Ajijic vacation rentals all to themselves. What better way to enjoy this beautiful area of Mexico than to live in your own home surrounded by privacy and comfort?
