High above Ajijic with great views, privacy and close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Marilyn's home is a lovely oasis from noise, stress, interruptions. Everything you would want is here and well stocked in all areas. Their home is on a cul de sac in a very quiet area directly above Ajijic in a gated community that feels very intimate. We were here during the hottest time of May / early June and everything was quite comfortable....plenty of fans, screened patio across the width of the house. Master bath area is large and well appointed with plenty of closet space. Great, helpful, friendly neighbors that makes any stay that much more enjoyable. The Mitchell's home fits right in with the wonderful area that is Lake Chapala.

Beautiful home, location and stunning view of Lake Chapala

  • 5 of 5

This is the first home that I had the pleasure of staying in when I first arrived in Ajijic. After living in this area for about two years,, it stands out as the most beautiful, comfortable and convenient home that I have stayed in. The home itself has all of the conveniences that you could hope for, too many to list here. The location is about the best you can have above Lake Chapala. Just imagine having your meals looking down at this beautiful lake, with birds singing, and the climate is top rate. Brian and Marilyn are just the best. Do yourself a favor and book this beautiful home on your visit to Lake Chapala.

I totally enjoyed my stay in Ajijic which is a vibrant little town on Lake Chapala. This two bedroom condo is in a safe location and is in walking distance to town. The condo came fully equipped and communication with the owners was easy for anything that I needed. Enjoying my morning coffees taking in the beautiful view from the terrace made my stay in this condo memorable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Ajijic.
