  • A Home Away From Home

    "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."

  • A Slice of Paradise

    "The house and village were all I'd hoped for and so much more. I was there for the entire month of February and wanted to stay forever! Right from the beginning, Georgette was the perfect hostess, going over and above what was necessary. She made sure everything was in top-notch order and gave valuable advice on the best places in town. Take her restaurant suggestions. They were right-on. This beautiful home is within walking distance of the lake, the boardwalk, restaurants, the plaza, grocery store, pharmacy, local hospital, and bus route, so the location couldn't have been better. Inside the house, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen and pantry were more well equipped than my own home, and it had all the modern conveniences - purified water, wi-fi, American T.V. channels, a phone. The only challenge was deciding where to enjoy the outdoors - in one of several screened porches, in the courtyard, or high on one of the two terraces overlooking the lake and the mountains. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you Georgette (and Hardwick)"

  • Great location and excellent host

    "My wife and I greatly enjoyed our week at the Sunrise House. As noted by the other reviewers, the location is within easy walking distance to restaurants, bakeries, shops, stores, banks, etc. The house was clean, well-maintained, and perfect for our needs. Nice views of the lake from our bed. Leo was attentive but not intrusive. We would stay here again. P.S. The organic market is worth a visit."

    "'And what more will I say?' Mimi is the best & so is Rio Nazas! From the moment you walk in through the beautiful gate you feel as though you are walking into your own little piece of PARADISE - a "secret garden" to delight you every day of your stay. At every turn, beautiful flowers, birds & birdsongs. A breathtaking view of lake & mountains beyond, whenever you lift your gaze from the beauty closer at hand. Then, there is your 'home away from home'; Spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, fully-outfitted kitchen, gas BBQ grill, TV's, WiFi, FREE phone to US, games, books (including local recommendations), sound system, pool - we enjoyed them all! Quite the long-distance hostess, Mimi has her lovely property manager, Ellen, bring fresh flower arrangements to further greet you. Aah, the total ambiance of the place! We would like to keep this as our own private find, but we can't stop sharing our pictures & information about this wonderful property. From the 'great crowd' of English-speaking new 'friends' that we made, we even had a small, BBQ dinner party the last night of our stay to share the experience. We are very anxious to return to the Ajijic area & Rio Nazas. Further afield, we truly enjoyed walking around Ajijic & the malecon absorbing the fascinating collage of brightly-colored buildings, profusion of flowers, peeks into garden courtyards, sounds, & people. Just one of our highlights was the Choc-Lan in San Juan Cosala where we enjoyed drinks & a beautiful meat & cheese board appetizer under the huge, open-air palapa overlooking the most gorgeous panorama of lake & mountains. We also took advantage of Mimi's facilitated recommendation for airport pick-up & rental car from Mark. GREAT CHOICE! - Prompt pick-up; clean, reasonably priced, reliable older, insured car (no worries about possible little "dings" you may get); on top of that an honest, Englishman fluent in Spanish. What an easy, comfortable way to come & go! 'For time will fail me if I go on to relate about' the beauties of the people & the area & Rio Nazas. You must personally see to believe. Go, Enjoy, & See what we have had the privilege to experience! MIMI - Thank you for sharing your "PARADISE FOUND"."
