Casa Rayón Where you are at home!

Casa Rayon: an updated Spanish Colonial Home

Casa Rayón is a secure and updated Casa Antigua from the Spanish colonial period located in the desirable Colonia Americana neighborhood of Guadalajara Jalisco. The exact date of the construction is unknown but it is assumed to date back to the 1800s. Its thick adobe wall and 15 foot ceilings keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Thru out the house you will notice the artisan crafted mosaicos hidráulico or encaustic cement tiles that became popular in Europe and Latin America in the 1850s. They are still manufactured today in Guadalajara, by hand, using the same techniques.

You will appreciate the hand crafted talavera tiles line the walls of the kitchen as you enjoy modern conveniences like an induction burners, full size refrigerator, microwave oven, convection toaster oven coffee maker, and blender. You can still see where the openings in the ceiling were that allowed smoke to escape from the wood burning stove tops from yesteryear. For your convenience the kitchen is also equipped with cook ware and utensils, as well as plates dishes and flatware.

The bathrooms have talavera tiles as well as hand painted sinks. The Suite San Francisco bathroom has dual sinks and a bathtub to sit and soak.

Casa Rayón is conveniently located in the desirable Colonia Americana Neighborhood of Guadalajara, less than one block from Parque Revolución where the two subway lines meet, various bus lines connect, and you will always find a taxi.

The Templo Expiatorio, Gothic church is thee blocks from Casa Rayón. Easily WALK to historical downtown attractions, museums, banks, clubs, restaurants, shopping, language schools, and grocery stores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Casa Rayon is an excellent choice for solo travellers or larger groups, especially if they rent both rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and a supermarket is a short distance away, so you can easily prepare your meals here. The dining room and living room are also attractive and well appointed.

I liked the fact that the historic centre of Guadalajara was just a 15 minute walk down Calle Juarez.

Thomas and Antonio are very gracious and helpful hosts.

Highly recommended!

An excellent choice!

We stayed at Casa Rayon for two weeks in January 2015 and attended a Spanish immersion school nearby. The Casa is well represented in this listing and exceeded our expectations. Photos are accurate, the layout spacious and inviting and above all quiet and clean. The kitchen was small but very functional and groceries are easily available. Many restaurants nearby, all of the downtown core a 10 min. walk away, easy access to bus/subway. A great, central location. We felt entirely safe walking the neighborhood and throughout Guadalajara at all times. Antonio and Thomas were welcoming, organized and responsive hosts. Excellent communication before and during our stay. We would highly recommend Casa Rayon.

Casa Rayón - Enchanting! (un encanto!)

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the beautiful colonial style Casa Rayón was like being home with all the luxuries tended to. Of course you are on your own for cooking meals, but Thomas and Antonio are the superb and charming hosts, available to offer suggestions and make sure we were at our most comfortable!

We loved this casa!

My friend and I stayed at Casa Rayon for 2 nights in November and we just LOVED it. It was very comfortable, clean and stylish - the coloured cement floors are gorgeous! I will definitely be back - I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I am in Guadalajara!

We had a wonderful time in Guadalajara! Great location for us, very clean accommodations and our hosts were the best. They gave us all the info to tour around the city and really good places to eat off the book, local hideaways. We only stayed for four nights and wished we had more. The city and surrounding places are incredible. You must go to the town of Tequila, just for fun! But, on the way stop at the Herradurra distillery for a tour during the week. We had our own private tour...the best!!!. A quick tip, we liked the cab driver that brought us back from Tonala and we hired him for the day to take us out to Tequila. Also, on your trip home, Antonio or Thomas will hail a cab just for you. Mucho Gracias!

Abbiamo affittato questa casa deliziosa per 10 gg.

E in pieno centro silenziosa, pulita, molto carina ma soprattutto Thomas e Antonio ci hanno accolto con molta simpatia e disponibilita.

Ci siamo trovati molto bene e la terremo presente per i nostri futuri viaggia Guadalajara.

Excellent location and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Rayon for two weeks mid-July. Thomas and Antonio are excellent hosts, very helpful and knowledgeable about Guadalajara. They have assembled a very helpful guidebook which includes overviews, recommendations and directions for nearby restaurants, activities, historical monuments and the nearby colonial cities. They are very responsive and always willing to share their local knowledge.

Casa Rayon is in a central location with many restaurants and activities nearby. Almost everything is within walking distance and if not, taxis are easy to catch at the nearby park. The apartment is very clean and spacious with good amenities. The furniture is comfortable. There are many different areas to relax, read and determine your next outing. The skylight in the living area and the plants give a feeling of being outdoors without worrying about the rain or heat. High speed internet, free international phone calls and cable TV make it easy to keep in touch with friends and family at home.

We would definitely stay at Casa Rayon again.
