"There is a tour in Ajijic called "Behind the Walls" which allows visitors to see the magnificent homes that are hidden behind the high walls typical of the area. This home is not on the tour or else it may be booked year round with a waiting list! It is a wonderful place highlighted by the open living room facing the lush garden, a large kitchen and four bedrooms each with its own full bathroom and shower. Centrally located only two blocks from the Lake Chapala Society grounds and a five minute walk from the Malecon, it is ideally suited for those who enjoy walking to all parts of the village and beyond.
The large collection of artwork complements the comfortable furniture and several terraces on the upper levels are ideal for activities ranging from breakfast to star gazing. All in all, this is a great place to use as a home base while visiting the Lake Chapala area and we have already booked for both January and February in 2016!"

"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."

"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!"

"From the minute we walked in this place it felt like home. The brightly colored walls decorated with Mexican pottery and original artwork, a very well equipped kitchen, hot water and plenty of it ! It's a 5 minute walk to the lake ( a popular place for bird watching in the morning) and just around the corner from restaurants, shops, and the plaza which is popular in the evenings for families and ice cream. It's about a 10 minute walk to catch the bus to Chapala or Guadalajara. You can also walk to the Tues. street market.The top of the stairs is a little awkward and you have to be careful. Mexican architecture seems to put an extra step into every room. Is there an occasional rooster crowing ? dog barking ? fireworks or a strolling group of locals singing to the Virgin Mary at 5am ?? Yes ! This is Mexico. They have a passion for their culture and fiestas. A perfect choice for those who don't want a car, like to walk, and want to experience the charming village of Ajijic."
