"My family stayed at the Jewel House in August, Celebrating their
60th wedding anniversary. We love the home, all one level,
and large bedrooms. The Mexican details in the home are beautiful. Leo our host was very helpful. We took the family to
the American legion in Chapala for a barbeque and the markets in Chapala and Ajijic. And of course Tango(our favorite restaurant) to celebrate with a big dinner with friends and family. A great trip.. We are repeat guests at this home and will be back.."

"The casita is well located and is far more beautiful than the pictures show. The design, the colors, and all the many custom details make this place outstanding. From the beautiful pool setting with many different plants and landscaping to the wonderful views from the mirador. The wifi and the vonage phone made communications and keeping up online a snap. All this made it hard to go out and walk around the town.
Best of all was the owner, Bob, and his very loving puppy named Tula. From the very beginning, Bob took care of us. He did all the little things and went well beyond what you normally would expect. This was our first time in Ajijic, but Bob made it so easy to get to places, eat at the right restaurants, visit the best sites...
Bob gave us our privacy, but it was always wonderful to visit with Bob by the pool or up on the mirador. And, he was always there whenever we needed any help or information. He always took great care of us.
We stayed at Bob's casita for over a month and had a great time. We definitely will be back and stay much longer next time."

"This spacious, comfortable home was great when we stayed for the month of July 2014. Located in a quiet area on the west side of Ajijic, we enjoyed morning walks with our dog along the lakeshore. Having a car with us was convenient, but there is a local bus stop on the corner a block away and for 4 pesos, it's a quick ride to the town plaza. We had most of our meals at local restaurants (amazing choices here for a small town), but cooked breakfast every morning and most lunches here in the well-equipped kitchen. Filtered water system was a big plus. We never got sick and used tap water for coffee, brushing teeth, drinking, etc. We spent most of our time in the upstairs area, bright and airy, feeling almost like we were in a treehouse. The well-maintained garden provided beautiful flowers, soft grass, and lush green views, both of the steep mountains that rise behind the house to the partial views of Lake Chapala. The friendly cleaning lady came 3 times a week, patiently helping us with our Spanish. There are 3 very nice restaurants and a small art gallery within a 5 or 10 minute walk. We have rented many times through either VRBO or AirBnb and have always enjoyed the rental home choice more than a hotel. This place was unique in that it felt so much like home so quickly. Oh, strong Wi-Fi and brand new flatscreen TV too. Highly recommended."

"My husband and I have spent January and February at Georgette's home. Georgette is very caring and looks after her renters she is helping to get guests settled and make sure that everything is just right. The house is veryclean and kept up. Nice neighborhood, everything works and the help is dependable. I can 't say enough about Georgette and we are so glad to have met her. I already want to book again!"
