The pool was most used!
Our parents owned this house 40 years ago....the improvements were great and they kept the old charm.
Great house in great location
We stayed in this house for about 2 1/2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were anywhere from 4 to 9 of us during that time and there was plenty of room to gather but also to have our own spaces. The house is very spacious and well equipped and is very conveniently located in the village of Ajijic. The gardener, Efren, was there daily and was wonderful about keeping the pool, gardens and yards clean. We had thunderstorms and wind almost every night, so he really had a lot of work to do! There were a few minor problems but the property manager, Bram, was helpful in getting most of them fixed. With the heavy rains, the water does go under the doors of the casitas, especially the small casita and was causing the doors to start to warp. There were some plumbing issues but Bram was able to fix those. The outdoor living space (living, dining and kitchen) was absolutely wonderful and that is where we spent most of our time when at the house. We did have some difficulties with mosquitos but those cleared up when we used repellent coils. The bedrooms and baths were very nice and the pool was fantastic! The top story mirador was a real bonus to watch the sunrise, sunset and stars and view the lake. The kitchen is very large and has most of the items and appliances you could want. Absolutely wonderful stay and we would definitely return. One other thing to be aware of - the housekeepers moved things (even our personal items) around a lot so it was a hunting expedition to find things after they left. Nothing was ever missing - just rearranged! Thank goodness that was only a weekly occurrence!
Amazing Ajijic Villa!!
My husband, son and I spent two weeks at Villa de Las Palmas in June/July 2016. This villa was a real find for us and we did not realize the extent of the property or the size of the house until we arrived in Ajijic. The property was perfect for us. There was everything we needed (and more) in the house. The outside area was beautiful thanks to the hard-working gardener and we spent many happy hours in the pool. Bram, the property manager was wonderful. He agreed to meet us at the house after a late arrival in Ajijic. If we had any questions or concerns during our stay, he was only a phone call away and handled our requests immediately. Can't say enough good things about Bram. The location of the property in the village of Ajijic was perfect. We could walk to any place in the village or out to the highway where many of the good restaurants in town were located, as well as Wal Mart. Both the main plaza and the lake front are only a couple blocks away. 4 Restaurant is right around the corner and C2 Lunchtime is only a block away. And finally, the owners, Stephen and Heather, were also a pleasure to work with. I was emailing them before and during our stay and they were very responsive and helpful. We had a wonderful experience while we were in Ajijic and all persons involved with the property made our stay one of the best that we have enjoyed through a VRBO booking. We hope to return one day!
