About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Location: Ajijic, Lake Chapala, Mexico

Unlock the door in the wall and step into flower filled grounds with abundant fruit trees, tropical birds, a solar heated pool, and enough space for a game of croquette or bocce ball.

This 4,800 s.f. home is nestled in the foothills of Ajijic with views of Lake Chapala. The 2 story residence is about 3/4 mile from the city center of this tranquil English-speaking town and only 40 minutes from historic Guadalajara.

The villa provides the perfect getaway and is the ideal location for lazy days of sunning, swimming, bird watching, sipping margaritas, or reading. In the evenings you can enjoy superb meals at charming nearby restaurants or create your own meals in the villa's gourmet kitchen and eat on one of the outdoor terraces. The balmy breezes and quiet nights will soothe and revive you; and when you are revived, you can work online or keep in touch with folks back home using our wi-fi and high speed internet connections and VOIP set to your USA area code.


















This walled property features 2 master suites, four terraces, abundant fruit trees and a view of Lake Chapala.

Golf: There are 2 great golf courses near the house. The first is Chula Vista, a small, visually stunning nine hole course with no electric carts. The caddies, some of them English-speaking are wonderful and knowledgeable. Most golfers play this course twice. Chula Vista is about 3 miles from the house.

The Chapala Country Club also has a nine hole course, providing an 18 hole option. This course is longer than the course at Chula Vista and and has electric carts. It is a lovely place to play, about 20 minutes from the house.

There are also several world class courses in Mexico, several of which are in Guadalajara. Guadalajara is 45 - 60 minutes away from Rio Nazas #34.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a retired lawyer and my husband is a retired teacher. We live in the E. Bay Area of Northern California and get down to Mexico about twice a year.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho del Oro, Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico:
My husband and I visited Ajijic for 4 days in the summer of 2005. Before we left, we bought this house! It was the most impulsive thing we had ever done, especially since we were not planning to move to Mexico. However, we love having a home in the magical little town of Ajijic. And now that we are sharing it with our guests, it makes sense to keep it.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
For me it's all about the tranquility. We have the mountains in back of us, the lake down below, and tropical birds splashing in the fountain in front of the terraza. I'm a golfer so I play at Chula Vista just about every day when we're there. My husband is a computer guy so he spends most of his days online. But we eat out most nights -- so that is our together time. Also we're both readers so we bring a stack of books and magazines and catch up on our reading in Ajijic.
