Fabulous walled private home with tons of colonial Mexican charm. Tucked away inside the prestigious Racquet Club of San Juan Cosala, this cozy hacienda will be the perfect getaway for you and the entire family. Featuring three beautiful bedrooms inside (with full en suite baths in each), and an immaculately landscaped courtyard outside. High ceilings in the great room give that open feel, and the living space expands out to the terrace off of the dining room -- where the view will stop you in your tracks. You'll enjoy entertaining on the rooftop garden (perfect for a dinner party or barbecue!), where you'll experience breathtaking views Lake Chapala & surrounding mountains. With weather in the 70's and 80's year-round, you'll see why National Geographic has called this climate one of the best in the world. One visit to the common pool and tennis courts and you may not want to go back home. Maintained by a professional housekeeper and landscaper every week. Ask about the car available in the garage (much cheaper than a rental car). 40 minutes from Guadalajara airport. Pick up and return service available through property manager. All utilities, gas, purified water system, local phone service, DVD player + movies, wifi internet, gardener, housekeeper, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, ironing board and iron included. Ask about special Christmas and Easter holiday rates.

Beautiful Home in the Hills Overlooking Lake Chapala
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Mariposa in San Juan Cosala Racquet Club. Michael and Jules were both quick to respond to any questions before we arrived. Jules met us when we arrived and provided an overview of the house. The owners rent their car for an additional fee and I fully recommend taking advantage of it. I only attempted to climb the hill from the main highway to the house once. Luckily, Security was willing to help me finish the journey. The house is a beautiful hacienda style with two bedrooms (each with a full bath) on one side of the house and the master bedroom (with its own bath) on the other side. The internet and phone went out during our stay, but Jules quickly responded, contacted TelMex (phone and in person) and we had it back in service within a couple days. There are two restaurants within walking distance (La Bella Vita is very close) and has breakfast and dinner, and a great Spa. Monte Coxala is a little further up the hill, but also serves a buffet breakfast and dinner. Viva Mexico is close by in San Juan Cosala and has great Mexican food and margaritas. This is a great place to stay for your visit to the Lake Chapala/Ajijic area and we fully recommend it.
The house is great. Jules was a great help also. Having the car available was a big plus. The house is well equipped, the roof top deck is amazing. The only issue is that I like to sleep I a cooler room and the master bedroom's air flow was limited. A little A/C unit for the Master bedroom would be great.
The house was great. Especially loved the front porch. We were there every morning for coffee, and conversation. We rented the car at the house. Something we were very glad we did.
I would say the only issue we had we the barking dogs every night.
Fantastic villa on the club de racquet site with stunning views over lake chapala.
Lovely 3 bed villa on mountain slopes above lake Chapala. Many facilities for on site living; functional kitchen, Shaw tv and internet plus car available for hire is definite plus.
Many restaurants available at San Juan Cosala and Ajijic not far away with best weather in the world.
Wonderful winter, 90 perfect days and nights.
Everything was great. Jules was warm, friendly and available. The gardner and housekeeper were always polite, efficient and good at their jobs. The house couldn't have been any better. Ajijic is one of our favorite places and we were sorry to have to leave. Definitely will be a next visit.
Wonderful Casa de Mariposa
What a great find! This home is beautiful and beautifully decorated. Located less than 1/2 block from the Racquet Club with all it's amenities and only a couple blocks from wonderful restaurants and award winning spa overlooking the lake. The inviting patio plus the mirador, both overlooking the lake gave us and our friends a relaxing place to visit, read and enjoy. The 3 bed, each with it's own ensuite gave all the comfort and privacy one could want.
Jules, the property manager has lived in the area for many years and resides only a couple blocks away. He was wonderful in his help and response to our many questions and had many suggestions to enhance our first visit Lakeside.
Convenient to all the charming villages/pueblos along lake makes this home a great choice for a visit to Lake Chapala area.
Thank you for making this visit truly memerable
