Welcome to our charming rental home located in a very desirable neighborhood in the lovely village of Ajijic, Mexico. We are located in a quiet privada, or cul de sac in a small, friendly community of 10 homes, each with lovely grounds and unique designs. The community is gated at night, and the house is gated from the cul de sac.
We are located half block north of the Carretera, near the clinic and pharmacy, and walking distance to at least a dozen wonderful restaurants, shops, galleries, movie theaters, banks and the local, weekly market. In this ideal location, you will not need a car, though there is a car rental agent just around the corner. The public bus stops very near this home and for a nominal fee, takes you to Chapala, Guadalajara, and other points of interest. We are a quick, 5-10 minute walk to Central Ajijic and the lake, but our location north of the main street gives us a quiet and peaceful venue.
The house is cheery and bright, and newly decorated in typical Mexican style. Traditional brick boveda ceilings throughout the home are charming, and there are ceiling fans in most rooms. The first floor features an open floor plan with sliding doors on two sides, leading to a wide, wrap-around, covered porch. The living area features a gas fireplace and the dining area seats 6. Another large table on the porch seats another 6 guests.
Casual seating on the porch overlooks a small yard and well-kept garden with bougainvillea, Calla Lilies, Birds of Paradise, and a cactus garden. There is a lighted fountain for your pleasure as you relax in the evenings. Another fountain is in front of the house, where you can sip your breakfast coffee at our small table-for-two while you enjoy a view of the magnificent mountains.
The kitchen is small, but adequate for any cooking you will want to do. We have a 4 burner stove with oven, microwave, full-sized refrigerator and all the serving and cooking implements you will need. We have installed a triple filtration system to insure quality water in the house. There is a full-sized washer and dryer on the property.
Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms, each with it’s own en suite bath. One bedroom offers a lovely view of the lake, while from the other, you will see the sun rise on the mountains. Each bedroom has a queen sized, comfortable mattress on the bed. There is plenty of storage room in each room. There is a small den and TV downstairs as well as another full bath.
This is a delightful home, filled with local charm and convenient to any of the wonderful activities you will want to enjoy. If you are looking for Mexican charm in a safe, quiet area, but also without the hassle of driving, you will find it here.
