  • The Jewell House in July

    "We have included the Jewel House into our vacation schedule for the last few years but this is our first time visiting in the rainy season, what a delight! During our stay, it only rained in the evenings, making for green, lush days with that clean, after rain smell. We hiked on the numerous paths that are a short distance from the house that provided amazing views of the city, lake and waterfalls. The casita is always ready upon arrival, clean and well appointed, (even providing Mexican coffee for your first morning). I love the Mexican tile work throughout the house. Our favorite Jewell House activity is sitting outside on the patio, with a book, enjoying the garden and fountain. Leo and Gaby are exceptional hosts, sending you lots of valuable information on the Jewell House, Ajijic and tips before your visit. Once you have arrived, there is detailed information in the guest book and they are happy to answer any questions and recommend current activities in Ajijic. This time, their recommendations included a lecture, concert, and excellent restaurants to try, all within walking distance. We will be back!"

  • Most wonderful summer vacation

    "Mimi, we had the best time ever!! Kudos to Veronica - who was always available via phone, Monica - who kept the house spic and span and Juan - who made the garden a delight for the eyes!!!! We (4 people) were blown away by the layout of the house. Biggest problem every morning was where to have breakfast as all the terraces are so beautiful. The pool was the perfect depth (my husband is 6'6) to even do lap swimming - what a treat. The amount of different birds and butterflies in the garden was amazing, my husband did not stop taking pictures. The walk into Ajijic is easy and there are so many wonderful restaurants and stores nearby. We went to Guadalajara (just 50 min by car) to TlaquePaque and had a fabulous time, did the farmers market on Thursdays in Ajijic, went to the thermal hot springs in San Juan Cosala and went people watching on Sundays at the Malecon in Chapala. Every afternoon we would enjoy the garden and relax by the pool. We will be definitely back next year. Manuela, Markus, BJ and Shelby"

  • Wonderful Place to Call Home!

    "We lived in this home for two years starting from April 2014. From the moment we moved in, we felt that we were home. We loved the layout of the home - it was roomy but not too big. The house is nicely furnished and we loved all the bight Mexican colors. Our favorite part was the terrace. It is such an incredible spot to enjoy your coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. The home is behind a shared gate with tree other villas. This provided us with an immediate sense of community. It is located on the west side of Ajijic - close enough to the village that you can walk into town (as long as you like to walk) but far enough away that you escape most of the village noise. There are also some nice restaurants nearby as well as an abarrote, carniceria and pescaderia. And the famous Tuesday organic market is a comfortable walk. Jim the owner and Roma the property management company never let us down. When ever we needed a repair done they had someone there immediately. We totally recommend this home for your stay in Ajijic, whether it's a short visit or, like ours, when you never want to leave."

  • Beautiful Property!

    "This property is absolutely gorgeous! From the street you would never guess the beauty that lies inside. The property shows extensive planning & love that was taken to build it. Once you step inside the door you have your own private resort and really not much reason to leave. This property is great for multi-families. We vacationed here for a total of 24 days with my husband's family. It can accommodate easily three separate families with their own bedroom, kitchen and bathrooms. Another reviewer mentioned that this is not a property for young children, but I would disagree. We vacationed here with our twin 3 years olds and my 2 year old niece and 6 month old Nephew and we could not have been happier. There are many steps but our children handled them with ease. For us this property being multi-layered with steps made the pool less dangerous for children because it would have taken them a lot of effort to get there before us, so it worked out well. We were happy to find out there was air conditioning (I could not find that in the description when we booked) and I am sure it depends on the time of the year but we had no real issues with mosquitoes (we did come heavily armed with repellent products but in the end we didn't need them.) Any issue with the house itself and with just a phone call (or email in my case) the local property management took care of it right away for us. If you do stay in Ajijic I highly recommend renting golf carts for part of your stay. The garage had plenty of room to store them and available electrical outlets to charge them. We rented them from Lake Chapala Golf Carts and they were perfect for getting around Ajijic. Another great selling point is that his home is just a easy 30 minute or so drive from the airport. I had to leave Mexico a couple of times on business so it turned out very easy to come and go. We also visited the local Walmart many, many times and could buy everything we are accustom to from back home. We had a great time and highly recommend this property."
