Interaction with guests

We became permanent residents of Ajijic over 6 years ago and love living here. Sharing our experiences and helping are one of the things we do naturally. This is a good place to discover and learn about Ajijic's customs and way of life. We are immersed in our local culture and neighbourhood. Come let us share some with you.
Each of our three casitas are private and detached from the main house, so privacy is easily respected as well.

This is a reasonably active household that has lots of contact with both other Expats and local neighbors. We allow up to 6 local kids in the pool for a couple of hours about once a week. We also host a poker game once or twice a week during the afternoons. We invite the young adult football team (or they invite themselves) to a fiesta at our home about once every two months. Mexico is VERY family oriented, so we can have as many as 30 to 40 family members at a fiesta. Although it can be "occasionally) busy, we recognize the need to be respectful of others needs as well. We ask our guests to respond accordingly.
We have a very welcoming home and have fun, but, this is not a continuous party house. Once in a while is welcome.

The Casita was small but well maintained, functional and within walking distance to Central (~20 minutes). The grounds are very nice as were Scott and Paula. We had a very good time and enjoyed the tips and local insight provided by Scott directly and through a welcome package he provided. We would definitely stay again.

Great place in the middle of town, very safe, clean and Scott and his wife are outstanding hosts. Scott helped me understand how to get around town, the culture, restaurants, etc. Overall great trip and a very clean, safe location. Would highly recommend!

Scott is super nice. His place is ok. It's a 20 minute walk to the plaza; a little too far for me. The casita was clean but very musty. He IS repairing leaks in the ceiling. Bed spread was stained. Decor basic, nothing Mexican about it. Garden furniture wasn't usable, probably because of rainy season. He sent a driver to the airport to get me. That was wonderful!! Made it so easy!! My ATM card didn't work at the airport and Scott was nice enough to loan me money until I could contact my bank.

Response from Scott:
I apologize about the very small leak. We needed two days of sunshine to fix it and have now re-sealed the entire roof. We experienced rain both day and night with almost no sunshine for 10 days. Weather that is completely uncharacteristic for Ajijic. And yes the casitas smelled a little musty even though the casita you were in is less than a year old. I think all of Ajijic was beginning to smell a little musty. I'm glad that that lengthy, bad weather is behind us. I recall asking you if you needed some help to move and your response was that you had already arranged for someone to pick you up. If you sent a message requesting assistance, I have not yet received it. I would have happily helped even though I don't advertise that I manage a delivery service. I'm sorry your stay was less than excellent. You have changed my record of straight 5's for Casita #3. I will carry on.

Scott and his wife are wonderful hosts. If you have questions about the area they are more than willing to help or offer suggestions; whether it's a good place to eat, buy groceries, or find your way around with a taxi or public transit, they will always give suggestions that are right on target. They love living here, and the way they interact with the local community makes this an even more enjoyable place to stay. Beautiful gardens to enjoy whenever you wish! You'd be hard pressed to find a more pleasing environment.

If you want to find yourself in the loveliest gardens in Ajijic, with just about the nicest expats in the area, then book yourselves some time at Scott and Paula's. There is always something going on there, like a friendly card game, neighborhood kids in on a Saturday to enjoy the pool and the grounds, or their sponsored championship soccer team over with their families to celebrate for the day. And don't get me started on their 4 little rescue dogs: playing with them made the visit complete for me!

Scott & Paula were very welcoming. THEY WANT YOU TO ENJOY THEIR HOME! The casita had basic essentials and they constantly checked in to make sure we were OK. Very friendly environment and even though the casita might be considered "small" by some, you have access to the entire garden, pool, and outdoor kitchen! Would HAPPILY stay here again.

We stayed at Casa Pasco for 13 nights and we really can't give it less than a stellar review. Stepping out into the arboretum-like grounds, having coffee in the morning by the pool, enjoying the friendliest pets you could imagine, and experiencing Scott's and Paula's friendliness made our stay a truly exceptional one. Our casita was clean, comfortable, and nicely provisioned. Casa Pasco is a 3/4 mile walk into the heart of Ajijic, and, if you wish, you can walk there via the scenic mallecon. There is also a bus stop directly across the street. In addition, there is a little restaurant across the street that is excellent for economical and delicious breakfasts (although you have to bring your own cup of coffee unless you want Nescafe), and there are also several "destination" restaurants, such as "Yves," very nearby. For groceries, and most other supplies, there a variety of tiendas within a short stone's throw of the Casa. Scott is extremely knowledgeable about the area is happy to fill you in regarding events and attractions. Ajijic is a great place to visit and Casa Pasco is a wonderful place to stay.

Ajijic, MexicoJoined in November 2015
Scott User ProfileScott is a superhost.

My wife, Paula, and I retired to Ajijic in early 2012 after a long career in finance & administration. Mostly in the Oil and Gas industry in Calgary. We also spent the last 5 years, before moving to Ajijic, as owner/managers of a mental health care facility with 26 residents in Cranbrook BC.

We live in the heart of our community and are very involved with our local culture and our Mexican neighbors. We support our local, young adult, football team, our local sewing and knitting club, host two Texas Holdem games a week as well as getting involved in way too many other local events and activities. We love it, however sometimes is sure doesn't feel like retirement.

In spite of our slow Spanish language progress, we likely have 10 local Mexican friends to every 1 of our Expat friends. Both of us are animal lovers who have rescued a number of friends in the past. Currently we have 3 small dogs, 3 cats, two parrots, three aquariums and 1 iguana. The iguana is not very friendly. We also love our huge incredible garden with well over 50 varieties of plants and 16 different fruit trees.
