  • wonderful home, wonderful owner

    "My husband and I have spent January and February at Georgette's home. Georgette is very caring and looks after her renters she is helping to get guests settled and make sure that everything is just right. The house is veryclean and kept up. Nice neighborhood, everything works and the help is dependable. I can 't say enough about Georgette and we are so glad to have met her. I already want to book again!"

  • 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."

  • Another Wonderful Escape to Paradise

    "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."

  • a great place with a great host

    "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."
