Absolutely loved our stay in the Mexican Sunrise House!
"My husband and I were fortunate to be able to book Leo's Mexican Sunrise House (should be called the "Mexican Sunrise Home" because it felt more like a home than a house) at the last minute when vacation plans to visit my son in Tucson AZ fell through. We literally planned our trip to Ajijic in less than 72 hours! However, even if we had planned six months in advance we couldn't have found more pleasing accommodations than this one. Having built a home ourselves we could definitely tell that a lot of thought went into every detail of its construction and decoration. We liked that the modern amenities were there but everything had the Mexican touch to it. In my opinion, it was the best of both worlds. The very-secure home is centrally located within walking distance to everything. When we wanted to take a taxi or a half-day tour around part of the lake to nearby towns Leo recommended an English Speaking transportation company (father and several adult sons) who were very prompt and did not operate on "Mexican time". Upon our arrival Leo provided us with a bottle of wine and provisions for coffee and breakfast the next morning to hold us over until we did our own grocery shopping. However, we ended up picking up provisions for breakfasts but found excellent restaurants for other meals at incredible prices! Our favorite restaurant was "Go" and we went there twice (Pedro is moving "Go" to new location so be sure to get current address). The home was extremely CLEAN and SAFE, my two musts for a vacation. We enjoyed the beautifully landscape grounds, comfortable bed, free telephone to call back home to the states, and clean laundry facilities. Ladies...there are more hangers than you will ever need and lots of extra blankets, towels and pillows! I saved the best for last...and that is the view from the upstairs master bedroom and terrace. We woke up viewing the sunrise and the lake from our bed. Morning coffee on the terrace was the perfect start to our day. We would highly recommend the Mexican Sunrise "Home" (or its sister property, The Jewel House next door with one level for small children or elderly) and can confidently say you will not be disappointed. P.S. Cali was the most mild mannered dog wer have ever met -- she was welcomed to visit anytime we left our doors open."

Beautiful Garden Pool and Oasis with Warm and Inviting Villa Attached!
"I recently stayed at this Rio Nazas hacienda as part of an exploration of Ajijic in which I rented several villas to experience different areas of Chapala. This is a serene and wonderful place in which to relax and enjoy everything that's good about life in Ajijic. You have the intoxicating gardens, meticulously maintained and surrounding a beautiful swimming pool and sun deck area. There are several patio areas for dining al fresco, or just to enjoy the sunset view of the lake. The villa is very nicely appointed, and clearly the owner and staff have thought of the little details that make your time there special. It is the most well organized rental property I have ever stayed at -- I wish others would think of the guest experience like they have. Little things like labels on the light switches, and plentiful supplies of backup towels and paper products make a huge difference. The creature comforts are generous, and if you stay here, I recommend you throw a party to share this incredible home with your friends. I can't wait to return!"

"My fiance and I wanted to check out the Lake Chapala area because we're considering retiring somewhere in Ajijic or nearby. Our host, Bob, made everything easy, even helped arrange our transportation to and from the Guadalajara airport, helped us rent a car, and made sure we had enough groceries to get started! He pointed out the best areas in which to rent when we relocate, made sure we knew about the organic market and a nearby farmer's market, and advised us about restaurants. (Our only "bad" meal was when we decided to try a nearby restaurant that he didn't recommend!)
The casita is beautiful and comfortable, the grounds and mirador captured the gorgeous colors and flowers of Mexico, and the pool was a lovely bonus. The views from the mirador are great, and, one of the best parts of the whole experience, Bob's little Shih Tzu, Lula, who was endlessly entertaining and cuddly! Bob graciously provides knowledge and support as well as delightful conversation by the pool while still affording all the privacy we wanted. Not only did we have a delightful stay, we have made two new friends in Bob and Lula! We would highly recommend this experience to our family and friends."
