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.

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.
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 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
Superb spacious property, superbly situated, superbly equipped, superbly managed.
We are a British couple, travelling with a sister, and we usually stay on Lake Chapala for 2 months at a time. This was our sixth stay, and La Mariposa is among the best houses we have ever stayed in.
The house is very well equipped, with everything needed for an extended stay, and is tastefully decorated. The accommodations are spacious, with 3 bedrooms and extensive living areas. The outside patio is fully equipped with tables, chairs and couches, and is able to comfortably seat all occupants. The gardens are restful, with a working fountain and sitting area, and the roofed mirador on the top of the house is large, and fully suited to outdoor barbecue dining/chilling, and has spectacular views of the lake and the mountain backdrop.
The property manager, Jules, is very attentive and helpful, and promptly attended to the few minor problems that we encountered, ensuring that the property is maintained to a high standard.
We were extremely happy throughout our stay at La Mariposa, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a special experience at Lake Chapala, in a special house.
The house is situated at quite a height up the mountain, so we would recommend that you have access to a vehicle during your stay, to drive to and fro.
Thanks and it is great to hear that you had a fantastic visit to Lake Chapala while staying in our home. We would love to have you back !

We spent a wonderful month in an amazing house
This house is just beautiful . The views of the mountains and lake are spectacular. The house is fully equipped for those who want to cook. You can sit outside and have a cocktail and just enjoy the beautiful foliage all around you. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful month in this house and can't wait to return. Bonnie and Sean
