BEAUTIFUL WALLED GARDEN PARADISE WITH BREATHTAKING VISTA

Jocotepec House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is an amazing opportunity to be in real Mexico with all the beauty and comfort one would want. The home is surrounded by a ten-foot high stone wall covered with bougainvillea and the property has plumaria, avacado, grapefruit, tangerine, banana, guava, orange,guava, lemon, and lime trees. The property is fully enclosed and safe and totally secure for your pets.

We now have high speed wifi internet access at the home, and a hi-def 22in. flat panel DVD player in the master bedroom.

Also, dozens of roses, birds of paradise, and others too numerous to mention. We go often to the home, but are flexible as to time. Housekeeper and gardener are long time employees who are very friendly and very helpful.

This vacation rental home is just fifteen minutes from Ajijic, where there are numerous restaurants, shopping, medical facilities, and art centers (Mexican crafts are everywhere), and the Guadalajara Airport is just 40 minutes to the north.

The town of Jocotepec has local markets (with all fresh produce) every day and large markets twice a week. Jocotepec has numerous fine shops and restaurants, some with the local specialty called 'Berreria,' a unique goat stew. The home is a short 3 block walk to the center of town.

Awesome home

We stayed at this home for 10 days in November, 2010. It truly is a garden of Eden! Very tasteful decorating, interesting artwork and masks, lovely outdoor and indoor settings for lounging, playing games, visiting, or dining. The gurgling fountain in the center of the yard, church bells, and local celebrations provide a wonderful foreign sound track to the experience of the home. Jocotepec is a true Mexican town with virtually no tourism and few ex-pats. Come prepared to walk the cobblestone streets to downtown and pick up fresh fish from the lake, chickens, beef, and a cornucopia of fresh local produce each morning. Cooking is a joy in the well-equipped kitchen. The 2 resident cats kept us from being too homesick for our own pets.

First off, the grounds around the home are beautiful. The neighborhood is fairly poor with dogs running around barking, horns honking and a vendor running around all day selling gas via loudspeaker from his truck. The place is not handicap friendly and we were told that people do speak some English and restaurants and stores were just a few blocks away and you didn't need a car. Well, everything wasn't easy access and to get back to the house it was a steep incline and we never did find a taxi driver that spoke some English. The tourist area was 30 minutes by taxi and airport an hour. We were going to spend 30 days but the kitchen didn't have a microwave, one frying pan to cook with and a super small TV in the master bedroom. The house is overpriced for the area especially if staying more than a week. We asked for a refund as we felt the house and area were not as explained to us. The owner refused to refund any of our money and two months later still have not received our deposit back. We paid to have the house clean twice and we were only there 3 days. Hot water was iffy and we used the shower in another room that was warmer as there wasn't any heat and they didn't want us turning on the space heater for long. Please buy shower curtains to keep water off the floor and comfortable furniture in the living room and outside and some pans and microwave. The house is well maintained and garden were lovely but I didn't feel safe (though it was a bit of a prison but this is standard in Mexico) and comfortable. Would recommend for a short stay but you must have a car and speak passable Spanish. For more activities, recommend staying closer to Chapala.
Owner's Response: Well to say the least, this person's stay was 3 days and found Mexico uncomfortable.
They misstated numerous facts.
First we have a housekeeper come twice a week at no cost to the guest who is a joy to be around.
The kitchen is fully equipted including a capichino maker and has many pots and pans.
Their deposit was fully refunded once the phone bill was received for the time they were there.
I received numous inqiries for the time they rented and turned them all away therefore there was no reason to refund money to someone who chose on their own to leave early because they weren't happy.
I was never asked if the home was handicap accessable and correctly stated, it isn't. They did not have have anyone who was handicap though.
I could go on and on but the fact remains, not everyone is suited to be in Mexico and these folks clearly were not. We have rented for 17 years and THIS IS THE FIRST RENTER WHO WAS UNHAPPY.
I am sorry they didn't fit in.
