Beautiful home tucked away in a peaceful gated community in Ajijic. You will feel right at home here with the house's light and airy spaces and numerous outdoor areas. Perfect for a couple or a family.

The space

Beautiful new 2 storey house in "Los Lirios" gated community, directly opposite pool, fully furnished and equipped, ready to be lived in! Gas bbq (connected to gas network), table and chairs on spacious roof terrace with lake and mountain view.

There are 3 bathrooms, a large and fully equipped kitchen with loads of storage, laundry room with washing machine and dryer, living and dining rooms, office (also the third bedroom with a sofa bed), 2 bedrooms (master bedroom with a fan and air conditioning, not to mention the balcony with a view of the community area. The second upstairs bedroom has its own small terrace. Both upstairs bedrooms have walk-in closets, built-in safes and full bathrooms with large walk-in showers). As well as the balconies attached to the two upstairs bedrooms, there is a patio downstairs which is perfect for breakfasts. Furthermore, and our personal favourite, is the delightful roof terrace with breathtaking views of both the mountains and lakes.

Ajijic is a quintessential Mexican village full of typical restaurants and shops. The house is 5 minutes away from the largest lake in Mexico, perfect for strolling to watch the sunrise or sunset. Walking distance from Walmart, local shops and restaurants, but far enough not to get any noise from the highway. Only 20 minutes from lots of natural thermal spas, 30 minutes to Guadalajara airport, and 45 minutes to the centre of Guadalajara. It's conveniently close to bus stops in case you don't want to drive. There is lots to keep you busy, even if that means relaxing by the pool!

The house is in a gated community which makes it very quiet and pleasent to live in. Furthermore, it is directly opposite the pool so you can always step out for a quick dip.

Guest access

Guest have access to community's pool, satellite TV, Internet access (WiFi).

There's also a multi-region DVD (and USB) player in case you want to bring your own DVDs.

Both DVD and TV are connected to our 5.1 channel home theater for an improved watching experience.

Upon arrival we leave a couple complimentary carboys of drinking water (20 L). We also leave a supply of basic cooking ingredients such as olive oil, coffee and salt.

Roof terrace is equipped with a (state of the art) gas BBQ connected to the house's gas supply and BBQ tools.

Interaction with guests

We actually live in London so chances are we won't get to meet. Luis' friendly parents will make up for this and will meet and greet you and will be around should you have any questions or need any help.

This was a lovely place for us to spend two weeks. My friend and I can both work remotely and that is what we did for most of the time we were there. The wifi worked well! Great space and great location. It is a nice size and could easily accommodate 4 people, possibly 6. One thing to consider, if you are sensitive to sound or noise, this location is right next to a soccer sports complex. There are nights where there are very loud games and music. If you are coming here from a large city and/ or used to noises, this might be ok for you. It was just a little loud for us. But, maybe that's Mexico? Overall, we loved our visit there and would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the area. The pool is lovely, and as the grounds, very well maintained. Enjoy!

We really enjoyed our stay in the condo. It's a great place in a central location in Ajijic and the Lake Chappala area. Nice accommodations and good communication with Luis. Thanks.

The house was wonderful, just as described. The location is in a central location, within walking distance to Walmarts, many restaurants, the plaza and Malecon. Enrique and Carmen, Luis's parents, were fantastic. They met us on arrival and showed us around. And once, when we were having a small problem with the hot water heater, they came out and took care of it immediately. Overall, this was a really great experience and we enjoyed it immensely. We highly recommend this place and would rent it again.

We arrived late at night around 11 and were greeted by Luis's family. They were very kind and welcoming. They provided some fruit, coffee and cookies for the morning which was very thoughtful as we arrived so late. They included cerveza which was unexpected but very generous as well. The gated community is very well tended and the pool was fun for the grandkids especially. The house is close to Walmart and Ajijic very accessible to the main road to Guadalajara as well. The pictures were just as we found the house. The rooftop sitting area had great views and nice breezes. We never needed to contact the family but I am sure they would have been helpful. Thanks Kate and Luis.

With Luis and Kate living out of the country, Luis' father Enrique was our host. He was there when we arrived, and did everything he could to make our stay comfortable. He was very responsive to our needs. The neighborhood in San Antonio Tlayacan is very welcoming. Head out the side gate in the evening and you'll find neighbors sitting out on the sidewalk chatting. There is a little corner market a couple blocks away, many great restaurants within walking distance, and Walmart just around the corner. We had a great stay and enjoyed our time there very much.

The listing description was exactly as posted. Was met at the location to have keys provided and shown around home. This is a very nice home with a good location. Everyone was easy to deal with... The home is well equipped with all amenities required for short or long stays. Did not mind the birds chirping or the roosters calling, one early morning heard cannons(thinking that is what it was) going off from 5am-6am. I would have no problems staying here again if we are in the area.

Luis is Mexican and Kate is British/Australian and we both now live in London, England with our 10 month old daughter and 4 month old puppy!

We both love travelling (and met whilst living in Madrid, Spain) and learning about different cultures. Luis works for a start up company and is passionate about making happy customers :) Kate is currently on maternity leave but works as a linguistic proofreader. She speaks English, Spanish and French fluently with a splattering of Italian, German and Russian.

We lived in our beautiful house in Ajijic for a year but made the decision to return to the UK to focus on work and studies. Luis' family all live in Guadalajara and Ajijic and will take good care of you :)
