1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Studio on the Malecon
Three of us—-husband, wife and sister of wife—-own the Villa Malecon. We live in Nashville, TN, have travelled extensively, and have owned other houses, but we were captivated by the town of Ajijic and this particular property. We spend several months a year here and have tried to furnish the villa for our own comfort and enjoyment.
Ricardo purchased this Studio in 2018
Why Ricardo chose Ajijic
The reasons that you would enjoy this house are the same as ours. All of the village of Ajijic is within easy walking distance.. You can watch families gather, social occasions (including lots of friendly dogs and well-groomed horses), and the movement of the sun on the land and lake from rising to setting. Then, in contrast, you have the quiet and beauty of our enclosed yard, pool, and garden, with their lovely view of the surrounding mountains. Few places offer such a combination.
What makes this Studio unique
This may be the preferred rental property in this truly unique location. The common areas are roomy, airy, and comfortable. All has been furnished for comfort and livability. The kitchen is fully equipped, although many of the best restaurants (as well as the plaza and the village shops) are within easy walking distance

The property was average due to issues in the casita.
First of all the heavy screen door to go outside is jammed. Cannot open the screen to go to the pool. It is very hard to open. Second I had no television for 3 days. They had problems with there cable company. I called one of the employees working there about the television and never got a response. Thirdly it was raining for three days and water was leaking in the bedroom and bathroom. The only thing good is that the casita is in a very good location but noisy in the weekend till 3:00.
Thank you for your review and feedback Henry. It is indeed the rainy season in Lake Chapala right now and with that we often have internet failures. Without the internet the T.V. was not able to get any stations. You failed to mention that our housekeeper Jose came by to try to fix the T.V. but (of course) was unable to due to the area wide failure of internet. Because no one was staying upstairs we offered you the upstairs accommodations where there is Telecable available. Telecable cable was not affected.
We just had the roof fixed right before you came. It was with dismay that we heard from you that the roof still leaked. Obviously the repairs were not done well. We are continuing to have that repaired. Hopefully this time they will get the repairs done right.
Thanks for your comment on the sliding door. Iron doors are very heavy to begin with but we have greased the track and the door is now sliding more easily.
Villa de Malecon
We arrived and were informed that the casita had some roof damage because of recent storms and there were leaks from the damage. Oscar put us up in the main house which was fortunate for us as it was available. The casita would have been fine for the two of us and it was lovely as well. The main house was gorgeous, with a large kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and a huge bathroom. There were also two more bedrooms both with en-suites. The property also has a swimming pool which we used on a daily basis. Also a barbecue and dining area under a covered patio. Loved the town of Ajijic, the park across the street, and the walkway by the lake. There are great restaurants in the area all within walking distance. The weather and temperatures are perfect. It was our first time visiting the area and we will definitely visit again. Our daughter was house sitting in Lake Chapala so she knew all of the places to go. Oscar and the house staff were a big help. Thank you once again.
Thank you for the kind review and I am so happy to enjoyed your stay. The team at Villa Malecon makes every effort to ensure that each guest has a wonderful experience.
The roof to the casita has now been completely repaired and we are welcoming more guests.
We look forward to having you come back and stay with us again.

This is a very charming property, well-appointed with great hosts. They are attentive to any request or need you submit, and are prompt in responding. The location is central, by the malecon, and within walking distance of great restaurants and shops. Will be back!
We appreciate your review Elisabeth. You are a wonderful guest and we'd be happy to have you return anytime.
Everything we needed👍� And quick response if we needed anything. Clean and close to everything.
Great Location and attentive management.
Our stay at the casita was very comfortable. The location in front of the Malecon is very convenient. The noise level at night on weekends can get loud but the bedroom homedics sleep machine works wonders and greatly helped. Ricardo, Oscar and Jose responded immediately when we raised a few issues on our first day. They were very attentive to our needs. The beds were very comfortable. We are very grateful to Ricardo for taking us on a tour to Chapala and surrounding areas.
Thank you Oralia. Everyone at Villa Malecon strives to make each guest's stay the best possible. I am glad you enjoyed you stay and hope to see you back again soon.
