You simply won't find anything comparable to the quality, comfort, and special energy built in to this exceptional new rental. It would be a standout anywhere in the world. Its quiet yet convenient location midway between the activity centers of Ajijic and Chapala makes a it perfect choice for Lakeside visitors… especially those who seek relief from the growing noise, traffic congestion, and parking issues encountered in those towns. The village of San Antonio has maintained its charming ambience while attracting an impressive diversity of restaurants and services, most of which are within walking distance. Taxi and bus services put Ajijic and Chapala within 15 minutes without the driving and parking stress.
The Mexico Refuge cottage is a spacious 55 square meters (650 square feet). High ceilings throughout provide a wonderful feeling of expansive space with lots of glass and ambient light, especially in the main living area. Natural (and adjustable) ventilation highlights our most-often-complimented design feature; hand-made woven reed mats on the ceiling interiors. This modernized version of a classic Mexican application produces a fresh, clean aroma and a feeling of organic softness.
