About the property

2 Houses with a total of 4 Bedrooms , 1 Office Library, 6 Baths, 1 Gym

10,500 square feet of living space provides a perfect get away for a large extended family or between 2-4 couples. A private oasis set in the hills surrounding Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest lake, this private property offers a double lot with 360 degree views of the lake and mountains. Main house + a 3500 sq. ft. 'casita'. Rent both if your stay is during the summer months, or just the Casita (see VRBO Listing 485717 for details), if you are looking for a winter escape. Casita is 2 bdrms, full kitchen, huge master suite with private terrace, 3 baths, elegantly appointed. Main house features a private, solar-heated pool, 2 bedrooms, office/library, stunning kitchen, gym, indoor and outdoor dining areas and spacious living room, all overlooking the star attraction, the view. Both houses have Star Choice satellite television, wireless Internet and Local telephone. Main house also contains a North American Vonage phone.

Everything is luxury in this home, your quiet sanctuary from which you can enjoy the charms of the ancient fishing village of Ajijic where restaurants, shops, museums and lovely homes line the old cobbled streets. Just a 45 minute drive to Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city, offering all the dazzle of big-city nightlife, while smaller towns and villages provide sight-seeing and wonderful shopping excursions. You will enjoy a short drive from the airport and be transported to another world, where the weather is always perfect.

Enjoy winter in Mexico in our lovely Casita with perfect weather every day. Or if you are coming from the Southern U.S., escape the heat with the temperate summer climate of Ajijic and rent the entire compound! Rated the 2nd best climate in the world, you will love the cool evenings, moderate days and the evening rains that bring lush vegetation to the region. Perfect all year round.

About Sharon Gregg

We are Sharon and Allan Gregg, Canadian 'snowbirds' who have built a very special nest in this beautiful part of Mexico. Now semi-retired and enjoying family and grandchildren, our 'compound' in Mexico is a gathering place for friends and family and a perfect getaway from Toronto winters!

Sharon Gregg purchased this house in 2007

Why Sharon Gregg chose Lake Chapala

We walked in, looked at the view and made an offer.

What makes this house unique

Swing in the hammock on our covered terrace, warm breezes wafting across your book with a blue sky that turns pink as the sun moves across the mountains. The lake seems purple in the waning day and the wine is opened to celebrate another sunset.

I thought I had remarked ...

  • 5 of 5

I thought I had remarked about our wonderful, restful vacation we had last Ocotber. We love Mexico, and the house was exactly what we wanted. Mari, our maid, became our friend, and we do miss her. This property has breathtaking views of Ajijic and the lake, and at night, the view across the lake is awesome.

You are close to shopping and the many restaurants nearby.
