"Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We had an incredible stay and are looking forward to a return visit. The property is very well maintained, has all the comforts of home and the staff was very helpful. We loved the fact that we didn't need a car and could walk to all our desired destinations - great location."

"Thank you very much, Mimi, for allowing us to spend time in your beautiful home. There were three of us so we each had our own room and plenty of space, the gardens surrounding your home are absolutely spectacular, we enjoyed going out in the mornings for coffee and late afternoons for wine. It was a very nice gesture to have fresh flowers throughout the house upon arrival, they held up until we left. My only regret is that we didn't book for a longer stay, one week is too short. We are discussing a return trip next year!"

"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."

"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."
