  • Urban Location in Historic Morelia

    "This apartment is ideal if you like urban settings in an historic neighborhood. Its location is convenient for shopping, about a 10 - 15 minute walk to Morelia Cathedral, and a 5 minute walk to the aqueduct. There is a bus stop in front of condo, and restaurants of all types and prices are nearby. For shopping, the apartment is across from "Tu Plaza” and "Mercado Revolución". The former sells mainly clothing. The latter sells fruits, vegetables, meats, flowers, etc. Both have a large selection of cafes and snack bars. There's a 24 hour pharmacy (Guadalajara) three blocks away. Supermercados (Soriana, for example) and a large shopping center (Las Américas) are a 15-30 minute bus or taxi ride from the apartment. Taxis are plentiful, and most public transport is on "colectivos" (15 passenger vans). The color coded colectivo route system is fairly easy to learn. Fare is 7 pesos as of July 2016. Pay the driver upon entry, or if you don't have your money ready, just take a seat and ask your fellow passengers to pass your fare forward (drivers will make change, but not from large banknotes). It's customary for passengers to greet one another upon entry / exit with a simple “buenos(-as) días/tarde/noche". A good interactive website for colectivos is at For trips outside of Morelia, the TAM (Terminal Autobuses Morelia) is northwest of centro (use taxi or colectivo). Morelia is safe (with the usual precautions one takes in any large city). The parks (Villagongín, for example) are beautiful. Historic sites (cathedral, churches, chapels, sanctuaries, aqueduct, etc.) are all well maintained. One important point about this apartment - it's fantastic if you are accustomed to city living. The market starts setting up at 5:30AM, and by 7AM the street is busy. Personally I found it fascinating. However, if you're not accustomed to this sort of neighborhood activity, this might not be the best choice. However, the rooftop terrace is very private - with great views of the hills surrounding Morelia. The owner has an office about 10 minutes from the apartment with a staff that can help with difficulties or answer questions. We were very satisfied with the service. In the apartment, there is a helpful list of restaurants, attractions, and emergency contacts (hospital, doctors, dentists, etc.). There is also a large library of books, including guide books."

  • Amazing, Wonderful,

    "We can not say enough good things about the couple who own and run this unique property. Buzz and Christie are warm friendly, and they absolutely do everything humanly possible to make your stay with them the best experience. The location is great you can walk to everything needed and the Melecon is beautiful. We did have a car and street parking is no problem. Restaurants are plentiful, so good and reasonably priced. I feel safer here than I do on Vancouver Island. We have made so many new friends. Christie and Buzz at the top of the list. We would like to move to the area and when we come back to scout it out, We are afraid this jewel of a place will be booked up, it's just great"

  • Perfect location, hosts and property

    "I was pampered, given privacy when I wanted it and company when I didn't. The property is kept in pristine condition. The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Emile makes breakfast every morning with a smile. Alix, his wife is the perfect hostess. They know the area and are extremely helpful in making your stay the vacation you need and want."

  • Everything you need.

    "Leo's Jewel House was the perfect answer to our trip to Ajijic. The anbience of the decor set the tone. and the well-done binder on the coffee table gave us guidance. We got to know Francisco at his corner store, taking advantage of his English-speaking taxi service. Gaby at the corner of Juarez and Carretera provided rotisserie chicken for more than one meal. The bakery across the street from Francisco lured us for hot bread every morning. We'll be back."
