Why Rob Meehan chose Mexicaltzingo
In all of my world wide travels, I have never stayed in a house that has the type of beauty this house has to offer. I discovered it by accident and even though it needed work, it had a unique feeling and I bought it. Gradually over the last 5 years necessary improvements were made and the house whose name is Palacete was made available to rent as of January 2014. I have property that I rent in Puerto Vallarta but have found the experience of both renting Palacete and interacting with its guests, extremely interesting and fun. If you are viewing this property you most likely have an adventurous spirit and can perhaps see that this particular house is part of Mexican culture and nothing that I write here can put it into full perspective.
What makes this Villa unique
. Palacete is large but does feel overwhelming as many of the rooms are centered around principle courtyard. It's location is in a blue collar neighborhood that has many people during the day but safe. The kitchen is a newer addition done within original design and provides a very large space overlooking the pool.

the house was amazing! the pool had solar heating unit so the water was perfect. i cooked breakfast and of course i forgot to buy syrup but yay the house had some for our use and has many items and condiments and coffees n creamer for guest use. the only thing u will need is toothpaste and ur toothbrush. all rooms have soap n shampoo. the staff is very helpful and gives u all the inside tips and they even came back to maintain the pool and made sure everything was great. will definitely stay again.
Thank you Henry. Always a great pleasure to host people that really appreciate the house and the work that we are constantly putting into it. Always welcome back .
Beautiful Home. We loved having a private swimming pool. Great location.
Thank you for the stay Chris and glad you and your family got good use out of the pool. Big changes being planned for this property over the next 18 months.
This was our second stay at this beautiful property. The kids felt right at home and enjoyed all the space. Angel was a great help as always, and when there was a little hickup he came right over to make sure everything was back to normal. Would highly recommend and will definitely come back.
Thank you María. Was a pleasure hosting you and your family.
Awesome city, beautiful accommodations, fantastic visit!!
Couldn't be happier with our stay at Rob's place. A wonderful family experience.
Beautiful house and wonderful location
The property was lovingly restored and is a great place to stay while in Guadalajara.
Thank you Stephen,
Was a pleasure hosting you and your family.
This property was a wonderful place to experience Guadalajara. Close to Centro and four blocks from the light rail line. The pool was a great place to relax after sightseeing. The support was outstanding by a local couple who cooked nice meals (twice for a small price) and made sure things were going well. A great ice cream place on the corner just steps away.
This is a renewed old Mexican Villa that dates from the 19th century. The house is an architectural jewel and it is completely different to any other place you could stay in the city, just relax and enjoy the amazing pool and everything else this city has to offer. The property has three bedrooms and two full baths, a beautiful kitchen and its own heated pool which will make your experience even better offering lots of privacy.
The property is located near downtown and other areas like Chapultepec where you will find bars and restaurants filled with all type of fun people to be around. This is a great location because it provides closeness to bars and restaurants, without feeling congested, with an easy walk to very affordable taxis that will bring you anywhere you want.
If you are not familiar with the city, you will find that it has a young and vibrating feeling where you can meet great locals and foreigners that will show you a warm smile, making your stay in Guadalajara a better experience, making you want to come back.
