About the owner: We are a husband and wife team who have moved from Oregon to Lake Chapala and are living our dream of retirement in a paradise setting and are enjoying our new love of having a guest house, welcoming travelers from all over the world. From the moment we came to Lakeside we fell in love with the year round summer weather which wasn't hard to do after spending years in Oregon winters. We hope that many of you will come and spend time with us in our home enjoying the people, weather, location and activities of the Lake Chapala area. We now have 2 rescue cats, they were kennel mates for 3 years; they adapted to us immediately. They are curious and can be rascals. If you'd rather not be around the cats or have allergies, please let us know, the cats will be out of site. If you have a pet you'd like to join you; please ask first so we can talk about your needs and see if it's a good fit.
Why the Owner Chose Chapala Centro, Chapala, Jal., Mexico:
Centrally located in Chapala, a forty minute drive from the airport of Guadalajara. The airport is easily reached by taxi, or personal driver. All the attractions around Lakeside can easily be accessed from here by starting with a short walk to the bus stop, and an incredible Mexican experience on the local buses. We have been coming to Mexico for many years and have found Lake Chapala to be our place in the sun.
The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
Location, location, location. We can not say enough about where we are located. There is no need for a car here, an aspect we love. We enjoy the experience of the local bus rides with the unexpected entertainment that gives it it's unique Mexican flavor. We offer secure indoor parking for motorcycles, and getting around the area does not require a car. Whether it be bus, taxi, private vehicle or just on foot you can easily reach shopping, the beach, restaurants and other activities from here, and the walking is easy here. One of our favorite rituals is to sit in an open air restaurant at the Malecon and have an evening cocktail, watch the sun go down and then enjoy a short walk home.
