Property description

You know Ajijic has some of the best year round weather in the world, but experiencing the 400 year old cobblestone streets of this charming Village first hand is even better! It's about location, location, location. More than climate and charm, this quaint Mexican Village has the services and amenities that you would expect in a modern luxury resort.
Only 30 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport, Ajijic is home to the largest U.S. and Canadian expat community in the world.
Why rent a room or pay the expensive rates at a B&B when you can LIVE for a little while in the most desirable part of Ajijic, in a quiet area near the center of town. There is nothing like the charm and convenience of living in the Village! One block from the Lake, one block from the Wednesday Farmers Market, (tianguis) two blocks from inexpensive bus service if you care to venture out of town. Only 4 blocks from the Lake Chapala Society and six blocks from the Plaza.

Lots of restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, cinema, live entertainment, florist, antique shops, unique galleries and artisan shops within a short walk. No car necessary! A fifteen minute stroll will get you anywhere and everywhere!
This charming 2500 square foot two story home with east and west
miradors that have spectacular views of Lake Chapala, the village, and
mountains is tastefully decorated with lots of Mexican folk art,
bright colors, plenty of Mexican character and all the modern
conveniences. With beautiful tile work throughout, this home features
a separate dining room, an open plan kitchen and downstairs living
room with fireplace. There is a guest bedroom on the ground floor with
a firm king size bed, TV, ensuite bath with tub and shower, a huge walk in
closet and a small screened in terrace.
Upstairs you will find a huge master suite with TV, firm king size
bed, fireplace, with shared ensuite bath with tub and shower with 2 doors for the connecting third bedroom with double bed, screened in terraces for each
with lake view.
Entertaining is a snap with our fully equipped modern kitchen, but
there are so many wonderful restaurants, you may wind up using nothing
more than the microwave!
There are ceiling fans on both levels.
The laundry room, with a modern stackable washer and dryer is easily
accessable across the flagstone terrace. THERE IS NO OFF STREET PARKING.
