"This was our 5th year visiting Amy and Aivars in Ajijic, and our first two month vacation ever. It was also our first time driving from Ontario Canada to Ajijic. We had a wonderful time. Amy and Aivars are the perfect hosts, and are always ready to assist with anything that may be needed. When we needed to call home on a land-line phone, they made their personal phone available to us, which was so greatly appreciated. When the weather turned cold in March for three days, firewood was made available for the chiminea to keep us warm in the evenings as we sat outside on the covered patio. The off street parking for the car was also appreciated. Amy makes the best Paella in the village, which we enjoyed for dinner one evening with friends. Aivars is the author of some of the best homemade limoncello jam and beverages you will enjoy anywhere. Lucy and Mona, the two resident Golden Labs, visited with us for every meal which we ate on the covered patio. Should you choose this casita for your vacation, you will not be disappointed. The gardens and beautiful, and songbirds and humming birds are abundant. There are fiestas in the plaza, hiking in the mountains, tianguis market days in Chapala, Ajijic and Jocotopec, trips to Guadalajara and so much more to keep you involved. You can walk anywhere...it is very safe, or take local buses as very reasonable rates. We have booked again for yet another vacation next year."

"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."
